Get the B-Boy Style

Being a true b-boy means living the hip hop lifestyle. You're innovative. You study the art of breakdancing. You're influenced by those around you, where you live and the great b-boys before you. Check out how to create a style that shows off your personality through your moves and your clothing.


  • Snap up unique logo T-shirts or polo shirts that stand out from the crowd. Go for a tighter fit instead of the big, baggy look. Layer it over a long-sleeved shirt, with the collar popped.
  • Support your favorite NBA team by wearing their jersey or hat. Avoid going head to toe in sports apparel though.
  • You can go old school in nylon track suits.
  • Faded, distressed jeans always give your outfit a cool look. Don't wear them too big because you need to be able to dance in them. Try rolling one pant leg up, tied with a bandana.
  • Shoes are the most important part of the b-boy look. Sport sneakers that are stylin' and comfortable.


  • Wear a funky newsboy cap, trucker hat, bandana, sweatband, visor, do-rag, or fedora . Even top hats have been spotted on the scene.
  • Accessorize with arm and wrist bands, which are key for wiping your forehead after a killer session on the dance floor.
  • Keep track of the clock with a sporty watch. Don't wear too much bling though - you don't want it to get scratched or knock you out.
  • What is a b-boy without his headphones? Keep them around your neck so you can practice your moves whenever you get the urge.

Tbh, your mom is kinda, you know, right about it. I mean, net is not as safe as we think it is. All I can tell you is that don't talk about her in front of your mom and don't give your friend any personal details about you.

I am sorry for what you are going through. I feel that it is time for you to find new friends - true friends. Try finding friends with same interests as you. You'll have more things to talk about that way. I hope things get better with you and your friends.

I'm 12 years old, and for some reason I'm always sad. I got a gold medal in my gym, and I just started crying, but I wasn't crying because I was happy. I just don't enjoy anything I used to. My mum does know but she says it's a phase. It isn't. I just started high school, but I don't have any new friends yet and all the popular girls pick on me and call me a loner :-( I hate school. I like the actual lessons but I don't like the social side of it. There are lots of clubs on at lunch that I want to go to but I'm too scared to go to any. I have been to one , science club but everyone was staring at me the whole time (I don't know why, and frankly I don't care, I just want them not to). Any advice would be appreciated.

I'm hoping to get my ears pierced, though I don't have the time or money to do it at the moment. Hopefully soon, though.
