Question Posted Monday August 20 2007, 10:03 am


ok. im starting highschool. and i'm not sure what to wear for the first day /week. i dont think we can wear tank tops, so yeah.

these are things i have in my closet..
-skinny jeans [dark ones and light ones]
-polos. [navy blue ones and maroon ones. i dont wear polos much..]
-regular jeans.
-black and white polka dot baby doll top. [thats really cute.]
-white shorts
-plaid shorts
-regular tshirts that just say like abercrombie or has a gumball machine on it. and stuff.
-this other cute hollister shirt, it has like a bow and stuff. its cute.

i have alottt of other clothes too. like stuff that all matches that stuff. i'm pretty sure i wanna wear the skinny jeans. the light ones, i roll up. and then the darker ones i keep down. i'm thinking of wearing the darker jeans. i dont knowww. what do most people wear on the first day?

[my mom wont let me get clothes right away, because when i switched to a public school in junior high, i kept changing my taste in styles.]

i mean i know what i like. like im into that whole california look. and i shop at places like urban behavior, a little h+m, abercrombie & fitch, hollister, forever 21, aeropostale, amercian eagle[kinda] places like that.

so any ideas?

Since it's in September, it may still be warm. Dress accordingly to the weather. Some schools don't have A/C so you might not be comfortable wearing jeans when you've been wearing shorts all summer.
If it's a sunny day:
White shorts with the baby doll top. Add a few acceseries with some converse and flats. Leave your hair down. It will be a cute, but a grown up, high schooler look =]
If it's on the cooler side or raining:
Dark skinny jeans with a PLAIN tee that's a bit loose, not too tight (tight skinnies and a tight shirt is not flattering). Add a long unique necklace and chunky random braclets (some really cute ones are at forever 21.) Scrunch your hair in loose, flirty waves and clip half a section up. And for shoes, wear flip flops.
^This look is sophisticated and unique because most girls (in my school at least) wouldn't wear this.
Remember to have fun with this. What some other people are saying about sterotypes...don't worry too much about it. Be and dress to who you are. That way you can act like yourself and feel confident.
And keep in mind that you will be in class for 6 or 7 hours, so you will want to wear something that fits and is comfortable.
Good luck on your first day!

Well, you know how when you get a few new shirts and some new pants/skirts/shorts, etc. you don't want to wear all your new stuff on one day?

Try to spread it out.
I mean, for the first day I'd wear something you think you look good in. Although first impressions don't always last, and I'm sure no one will think any worse of you if you don't go all-out with your clothes on that one day.

I'd save some of your cutest clothes for another day, (as hard as i know that is to do, haha) and wear your favorite shirts, but not necessarily with your favorite jeans...vice versa, etc. I mean, you don't want to run out of new clothes after the first few days/week of school.

I know it's hard to not wear everything all at once (after all, you bought it because you thought it looked you'll probably want to wear everything so you look super-great! although I don't think thats the best way to go.)

So, my point is, if you spread out the times when you wear your favorite clothes, you'll feel good all the time, not just the first week or two of school...because then there's the whole issue of "aaahh i can't wear those pants twice in the same month!" sort of deal.

Besides, you dont want to look like you're trying TOO hard....but I think your clothes sound stylish and whatever you decide to wear will be awesome.

Hope this helped a little.

At high school you can kindof be judged a little easy on first impression. so, wear something that people can't judge you on. XD

Wear the jeans you want, and maybe the babydoll top if it matches, or another favorite top [Maybe the one with the bow?]. If you wear favorite pieces, you'll feel a lot more comfortable. Wearing jeans is a good idea on the first day because they're comfy & you probably don't know if your classes have AC or not & you wont freeze or die of heatstroke in jeans =]

As for buying new clothes, buy basics that fit your style that can be worn with things you already have. That way, you have the "new clothes" feeling but your mom is happy too because you're getting your money's worth from all the clothes you own. Buy the shirts you like on end-of-season clearance, have an All-Access Pass for American Eagle [spend $100 and you'll have a nice discount in a couple months!] things like that.

Good luck in highschool! It's a great experience.

i think the first day you should wear your cutest out. because you want to walk into school and be like BAM! lol. you want people to notice you.

maybe try a pair of your skinny jeans with the polka dot baby doll top. whichever pair matches the best. but if you wear the light ones don't roll them.

then for the rest of the week go more casual, but still look cute. you have to make a good first impression.

like try wearing your plaid shorts with a simple shirt. and some of your regular tshirts with cute skirts.

just have fun with it :]
