Back-to-School Fashions for Guys

Back to School - Fall's It List

Vintage T-shirts, hoodies, track jackets and sweaters are always in style... so what's new this school year? Well, argyle has been edged to the back of the closet by prints like plaid and camouflage, which aren't the least bit nerdy. The layered look is still in, but keep yourself looking a little more lean and a little less bulky.

Back to School - The Skinny on Jeans... and Cargos

You can't go back to school without a new pair of jeans. If you want to be the trendiest dude in class, get a pair of skinny jeans - they've replaced last year's low-rise. But if you want to be the most comfortable, go for a baggier fit. We're not talking so big and baggy that you can fit your two best buddies in there with you, but a relaxed boot cut is a good choice. Another must-have are cargo pants. They're cool, casual and come with so many pockets that you may not even need a backpack for all those pens, pencils and erasers.

Back to School - Old-School Style

Girls have bags and jewelry; guys have hats and belts! Make these accessories stand out by getting 'em in funky patterns. And make a bold mark by wearing old-school canvas sneakers in bright colors. You don't have to stick to athletic brands like Puma and Adidas, cuz stores like Old Navy, the Gap and American Eagle carry their own line of retro kicks as well.

    Talk to your parents about it. Tell them you didn't like your Christmas gift, and don't let your brother boss you around. Your parents can, your brother can't. Your parents gave you life, sorry to tell you but they can do anything they want if it's legal. But your brother can't. Let your parents know that you shouldn't have gotten in trouble for the stuff he doesn't. Tell them he makes you feel really awful and you don't like it. If they're good people they'll understand.

    I would stop being friends with her. I mean she should understand that it'd be mean to do that. It's hard to help your friend get through a breakup when you're dating the same person. Plus you don't even know if she was trying to break you guys up so she could be with him.

    You want to know if he likes you or not? Just ask him. It's not as bad as people say-I mean, it's a question. It looks like he does, so he probably does. It's not that big of a deal.

    Talk to your friend. Tell her that this is the first guy that's ever liked you but you don't want her to get mad at you for stealing him from her. But understand she likes him too so don't get mad if she doesn't want you dating him. Nicely decide which of you should get him instead of the other. Chances are she might be thinking the same thing.
