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.

    I'd also shift the blame onto the parents. It's disgusting and appalling to know that parents don't care about their own child's wellbeing.

Her parents didn't tell her do anything with anyone , She did. Her parents isn't involved in this case!!  She's 13. Kids that age base some of their decisions off of what their parents say. Her parents should have told her what's right and what's wrong, which they most likely didn't do since apparently they didn't care.
