2006 Back-to-School Fashions for Guys

Stumped on what to wear to make the best impression on old friends, new friends and soon-to-be crushes? Get the goods on what's cool for back to school this year!

Think vintage T-shirts, camo prints, colorful retro kicks - and skinny jeans, if you dare.
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.

    • I like them, but don't look good in them.
    • No way - I like my jeans big and baggy.
    • Only girls should wear skinny jeans.

    EndlessDream is right. Skipping breakfast and lunch can result in stomach ulcers and sudden weight gain (had personal experience...), ESPECIALLY skipping breakfast! You have to incorporate exercise in your daily routine. Stomach and body fat is mostly caused by lack of exercise, and maybe that means you need to do toning exercises. Try doing simple exercise videos like the 3-mile powerwalk on YouTube (trust me, I sweat like crazy when I do those workouts). Anything that gets you sweating, is the kind of exercise you need to do.  I hated working out when I first started my weight loss journey too. I would always start wheezing every time I started working out. But after pushing through everyday, I think working out is one of the best stress busters I've ever had!  If you want to lower your appetite though, I suggest eating a full lunch and breakfast and skipping your dinner. If you can't skip dinner, then at least try aiming for an early dinner, around 5:30 or 6:00. Your body needs time to digest at least 4 hours before you sleep. I started gaining weight around puberty when I was 12, it could be the same for you too.  But honestly, there's nothing wrong with having consciousness about your weight. Now starving yourself and dieting is BAD, but there's nothing wrong with changing your lifestyle in order to be fit. It's a good thing that kids start caring about their health, and the earlier you start, the better off you are.

    You need breakfast and lunch. Starving yourself, even if you aren't hungry, makes you loose energy to the point you could pass out from not eating. Keep your diet healthy. For breakfast, at least have yogurt, fruit, and juice. Drink at least 4 full glasses of water a day. Trim down on the snacks. Everyone has different bodies and build. You may just be large-boned. And that's not bad! That makes you stronger and higher ability to gain muscle. Loosing weight doesn't happen over night. It can take months.

    For years my parents would tell me I'm skinny but compared to other people, my waist was bigger and I would always hide it. Though it was obvious I weighed more, I've only been doing this for a week and I didn't ever tell anyone what I was doing until my parents found out. I would skip lunch and breakfast and say I was full. I only ate a big dinner every night. Once my parents found out, they said it was unhealthy and if I didn't  stop, I would develop an eating disorder. I obviously listened to them, but I've tried as best as I can so far. I have barely lost any weight from exercise and my parents won't let me go on a diet because I already 'eat healthy enough'. I want to lose weight without exercising being 3/4s of my lifestyle. I know, I'm a lazy idiot for saying all this.

    Yes, purely for the fact that you should not "hate" your sister (or anyone, for that matter).  I'm guessing by "get in trouble for her", you mean she does something wrong and the blame is all put on you? Yeah, little siblings tend to do that a lot. My brother did for the longest time, until my parents found out how much a liar he is. She, hopefully, will grow out of this eventually. Either that, or your parent[s]/guardian[s] will eventually see through her. You lose your friends to her? By this do you mean your friends want to hang out with her and they want you to tag along and you don't? Or do you mean your friends chose your sister over you? If it's the latter, then perhaps you shouldn't have ever referred to those people as friends. You'll find friends who'll prefer you over your sister, I'm sure of it. The only thing I can tell you to do is try to get along with your sister. Every group of siblings has their cats and dogs moment in life, but they grow out of it (most of the time; there are, of course, circumstances where it doesn't work out that way). Please be grateful for your sister, even if you two fight a lot. You never know how much you need something until it's gone.
