Converse slip-on sneakers are cool for school.
Sneakers

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.

    So i  agree with miley15 i think you guys should all meet up and tell them they can't leave or interrupt each other untill the issue is resolved let girl 2 know that the more she askes the less girl 1 will want to be her friend , also tell girl 1 that she shouldn't just run away.  Girl 1 is trying to be friends with girl2 but  i mean they dont need to bff's but they should not make a big deal of each other.

    My parents are very lenient about chores and messing around but they are NOT lenient at all about lying, respect, homework or safety stuff.

    ahaaaa...that's sorta confusing and annoying at the same time...but don't u think if they were really your friends they would listen to u? if they are really interested in being friend with u so tell em that u cannot stand this situation anymore and ask them politely but firmly to try to understand each other...or ur friendship will be ruined...i'm sure talking always solves any problems...

    Ok here's what's going on. Girl1 (my best friend) can't stand girl2 (my other friend). And girl2 wants to be friends with girl1 but girl1 doesn't want to be friends with girl2. And girl2 keeps messaging girl1 and girl1 keeps telling her she doesn't want to be her friend. got you confused yet?  So this is what is making me write this. My best friend said that if I keep hanging around my other friend she will try to be nice. But every time those two are in the same place girl2 asks girl1 why they can't be friends and that just sets girl1 off. And then I have to stop it. I love how my best friend is willing to hang around my other friend for me but I hate how my other friend won't stop bringing up why the two of them can't be friends. No matter how much girl1 and I tell her that girl1 doesn't want to be her friend she keeps asking. I like hanging out with both of them but not at the same time and when I hang out with one and not the other they ask why and I spending more time with the other one then with them. I can't take it anymore!!!  Please help me me before I loose it,              avatar-me
