2005 Back-to-School Fashions

Whether you're a trendsetter, athlete, punk or prepster, everyone needs ideas for a new fall wardrobe. Check out what you need to stay in style for back-to-school 2005!

#10. Vintage T-Shirts

Layers are key for fall, when the weather is not too warm and not too cold. So wear a t-shirt over a long-sleeved tee, or simply wear two at a time. Head to American Eagle Outfitters for retro-style t-shirts.

#9. Big Sweaters

Big, belted cardigans are all the rage for fall! If you don't own a chunky knit, then just rummage through your dad's closet and throw it on over a cute tank top for an effortlessly chic look.

#8. Hoodies

You'll be comfortable all school-day long in a hoodie. Cropped hoodies are a hot item for girls, while guys can keep it simple in relaxed fleece hoodies from Abercrombie & Fitch.

#7. Puffy Vests

Vests are the best way to keep warm on a cool day cuz they're stylish and snuggly. They're also an essential layering piece, so wear it over your tee, polo shirt and hoodie.

#6. Cargo Pants

From oversized pockets to zippers, straps and flaps, the really cool cargo pants feature tons of extra details that make all the difference!

#5. Full Skirts

Boho chic hasn't dropped off the fashion radar yet, so head back to class in a full skirt with a fitted tee, and add a cardigan when it gets cooler. It's a flirty, feminine outfit that's perfect for catching the eye of that cute new exchange student in homeroom.

#4. Track Jackets

Guys can easily up their style quotient by throwing on a track jacket over a T-shirt and jeans. Find sporty track jackets by all your fave brands, including Puma and Adidas.

#3. Corduroy Blazers

This season's sweaters may be big and baggy, but the cord blazer is shrunken and fitted. Grab one or two or 10 in colorful shades like blue, purple and yellow at Old Navy.

#2. Jeans

Back-to-school shopping isn't complete without a pair of jeans. They're a must-have for every season, whether they're classic, cuffed, cropped or cutoffs à la Daisy Duke!

#1. Slip-On Sneakers

Good news for all you slip-'em-on-and-go types - slip-on sneakers are the latest trend, seen on everyone from Mischa Barton to Ashton Kutcher. They're great for those mornings when you're running late for class and have no time to do up your laces. Check out cool back-to-school sneakers from Converse and Keds.

    Calm down. Ignore her. You are YOU, don't let anyone change you. If someone hurts, cry a river and build a bridge over it cx

    Hmmm....Then she mustn't be necessarily "using" you, if she is not getting something in return ( As far as we know of). However, It does sound like she is being extremely unfair. That just might be how she is. Not exactly loyal to anyone. Well, try to talk to her about it and tell her how you feel. And, if it doesn't work out, then she might not be a great friend to hang around with, and maybe you will find someone else who enjoys your company. I hope this helps, and good luck :)

    No not really. Like I said, one minute she's all smiley and then she doesn't even look at me. Most of the time I see her with Daniela and Andrea. Today she was asking me if I was going to hang out with her, Daniela, Andrea and Luisa during recess. When I told her that I was 'going to have to think' she was like, "Whatever." and ran off to catch up with the Threesome. Thanks. :)

    Is she asking you to do things for her? Like help with homework, carry her books and so on?
