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.

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.

Accessories

  • 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.

Maybe they're trying a little too hard to impress you. Maybe they're desperate for a friend and don't want to lose you so they're trying to please you. Just calmly ask them if they could stop trying to be exactly like you and instead be themselves, because people like to be friends who are themselves. Good luck! -HannahG

Hey, just move on. If she/he can't see what a great person you are, then they don't deserve you. You're an amazing person and if they believe differently, then they don't have a clue about what they're missing. -HannahG

Look, I know that it's bad what she did. It's wrong. But there's nothing you can do about that. Let her live her own life, the best thing to do is just leave it alone. If she wants to take care of a child, she'll deal with the consequences. She makes her own decisions, so if that's what she wants then you shouldn't interfere with it. Forget her. Just don't make the same mistake. I know some girls out there believe that their boyfriend totally loves them, and if they have ########### they'll love their girl even more. That's not always the truth. They always say it's not gonna be me, I'm not gonna make the same mistake, my boyfriend loves me no matter what, and they turn out wrong. That's the end of my rant. Just leave her alone, you'll be better off. -HannahG
