my little brother in grade 10 got some Red Wings and they're working well for him; they're rugged enough that I don't need to stress about how he's ruining them, and he loves them. A good pair of the standard moc toe red wings in one of the better leathers is a great first real boot (if you try it on for sizing before buying, which he did) because they get better the more you wear them, they feel substantial, and (if you get brown) they're versatile. some other models like pic related are a bit louder, which seems to succeed in high school. teens like bold clothes

When it comes to very expensive stuff, I honestly don't think someone in high school should be looking at RS/RO because your taste is still evolving, and it might be too soon to make a big aesthetic investment; also high school students are more likely to accidentally ruin a piece, especially a delicate one

A lot of things are "acceptable" in high school; you can get by with american eagle and vans at most schools. "Acceptable" shouldn't be acceptable to you.

Graphic tees hit it big with the high school crowd. I don't like UO but it works for HSers. Use your own judgment there. Be careful with brand name items, because even if it's working for you "on a different level" some kids will suspect that you want to fit in and be cool with your supreme 5-panel.

the next thing is that it really isn't going to matter THAT MUCH how you dress in high school. Unless you're dressing very badly, the most important thing to develop is personality and charisma. body language makes as much of a visual impact as clothing does; if you stand wide-stanced and look awkward, no amount of designer fashion will save you.

personality isn't just being quirky, it's having substance lying behind the things you do and say. it's being culturally and historically literate, troubled by real moral and philosophical problems, generally being thoughtful and aware. If you know how to make someone think, that can win them over. but before you can do that you do need to make them listen, and clothing does help. also, empathy will win you more than misanthropy.

dress for yourself. dress for the guy who sees you on the street and "gets it". that's what fashion is about; not dressing for the people in your class. if you dress for better reasons, people can sense that. it's important to give people the sense that you're not JUST trying to impress them.

and it's important to remember that being cool is not "not giving a fuck", it's about prioritizing your fucks; caring about things that matter.

high school students get the worst little peach fuzz shit on their faces, they need to just shave it off until they can grow something real

some guys can grow a real beard at 17 but most can't. the ones who can't but try to anyway just look pathetic.

>> No.6624426

high school is a time when most people still don't know that "shirt" doesn't by default mean "t-shirt" and that the most basic type of shoe is not a sneaker, and that sneaker soles shouldn't be on a boat shoe (unless visvim does it, obv.), and that there are no "high-end" stores at the mall. You have an advantage over the majority just by being here. Don't condescend to people about that, and don't name-drop some knowledge to impress people, just dress better than they can, and let that do all the communication for you. people will notice that.

and lastly, just please don't let yourself fall into the trap that the internet has set for you: don't settle for not being a "snowflake". don't settle for being normal, for being like everyone else. you aren't born different, but you can be different, and finding important ways to make yourself different from everybody else is what will make you an interesting person one day.

high school is a great place to start. caring about your visual footprint in the world is as good a difference from the masses as any. fashion is about respecting everyone else's right to have to look at you as much as anything else. there's a good piece of starting philosophy to help you care about more than fitting in.

there is for every person the universal eligibility to be noble; that calling extends to you, too.

okay, I need to stop. I like to condescend to high schoolers. I can't help myself.

im in high school, im also kinda fat but i love fashion. I used to be into those street wear brands like the hundreds etc about 4 years ago but then it became so egotistical and mainstream that every high schooler was wearing it. I devoloped a sense for fashion to stand out and be different because since girls didnt want me (even tho ive been told im handsome as fuck and cute and i wouldnt say im ugly, im still fat) fashion is like an escape. The brands i wear now range from anything like Ann d, rick, raf, actual pain, the teenage girls, smaller brands like common connect, and vbrand. I like gucci shoes and have a couple pairs but i like nikes alot too as they are comfterable.

Now I ain't suggesting you steal someones style on souly looking /fa/bulous, but dressing like MC ride, or basically anything along those lines will do well in highschool. Black jeans, Black chino's, black jackets, black boots/black vans, and navy/white/grey t-shirts (plain) are good. For brands no one cares about quality or that your rick t is worth more than their braces, though American Apperal for t-shirts, k-mart, for pants just get shit that looks nice, H&M chino's and levi's. and Doc's aren't bad at all, but a bit show offish in HS, vans, nike, adidas is the way to go, though adidas have shit human right policies on how there product is made so think otherwise on that. Same with k-mart.

If you feel more confident/comfy in a button down and indigo jawnz and some NB(kids your age might think NB is for poor people due to that massive N tho) then just slowly upgrade pieces that you like. If you don't then switch it up a bit until you do. Just shop at fast fashion places tbh.

>> No.6627421

you have to force yourself to start conversations with people you don't know. It's the kind of thing where you just have to keep doing it until you get over that anxiety. If you're not at the point where you can even say hi to people then you need to work on your confidence privately or see a therapist until you're feeling better about yourself.

The best thing I ever did for myself was get a job in fast food when I was a teenager. I was absolutely terrified of approaching people I didn't know before then but because I worked in customer service I was forced to talk to strangers all day, every day. By the end of the first month I was completely comfortable starting up conversations with total strangers.

I know it sounds kind of weird but seriously just get a job in customer service it'll change your life.

>> No.6627427

but how do you keep a convo going?

or start it?

>> No.6627462

just babble on about whatever and smile a lot

ask a lot of questions

biggest thing is not to worry about impressing people, because most people really just enjoy chatting with others and don't care if it's about something completely inane or not

I know that my advice is basically "If you don't know what to talk about you should just try talking about something" and that that's not very helpful but it's really just a matter of forming the habit. You just gotta do it a lot and go through a trial and error process to figure out what works and keep your head up if you fuck up in the beginning.

also if you have that typical 4chan attitude of being shitty and judgmental about every little thing a person says or does, you need to cut that shit out. Awkward people are always letting on exactly who they are, so if you're a douche people are going to be able to tell right away. If you're a kind person they'll be able to see that and they'll be a lot more likely to want to keep you around.

Fashion doesn't quite get you laid as easily until you develop your personality and your peer group starts becoming aware of fashion in the conceptual sense. Late 20's, 30's, maybe? Even then, most people are still clueless. some of the women will think you're gay regardless, sometimes as a way of coping with your apparent unapproachability (this happens, really).
Eventually it all works out for the best, but I really don't see the point when you're still young. Just do the basics, hold it down until you're commanding a few stacks and some real knowledge & vision.

No you'll get nowhere in life because you look down on people who do get in shape and think just buying clothes anyone could makes you better than your friend. You have a bad attitude and you sound bitter that your friend looks better than you.


Who mocks their friends lifestyle choices to make themselves feel better? You probably don't even have the money to dress well since you're still in school (and calling me summer ha) so get off your high horse.

body type preference varies between girls. The most popular by far are ottermode and ripped. Some will like built. I'm not sure whether anyone likes skinny, but I don't have reason to think it's in the same league as those three.

If you're ottermode, not every girl will like it but plenty of them will prefer that to other builds and most should be fine with it.

Don't underestimate the importance of shoes. I don't really believe that you can do "basic" shoes. Depends what basic means, I suppose. Brands like Doc Martens, Nike, Converse and Red Wing might qualify as basics. In that case, sure. But try not to get into the habit of going really cheap on shoes.

Wearing a cheap shirt is something you can get away with, because shirts are to some extent inconsequential. I don't agree with everything Rick Owens says, but he was right when he said "Hair and shoes say it all. Everything in between is forgivable as long as you keep it simple. Trying to talk with your clothes is passive-aggressive."
