I think if I were in high school now and wanted to look nice without overdoing it I would probably wear nicely pressed Land's End dress twills (the 100% cotton version) and Brooks Brothers buttondowns with penny loafers or some nice Rockports. You can add a little flash with brightly colored socks if you like. I also think nice dark Levi's 501 with simple sneakers and a Brooks Bros blue oxford buttondown is very good look. (Roll up the sleeves to look more casual.) If you are tan, the yellow oxford looks great, if you want girls to notice wear the pink oxford! If it is hot replace the dress shirt with a nice polo. When it gets cooler a solid color crew neck shetland sweater or v-neck sweater vest would go well. Don't wear any thing with words or pictures printed on it. I would say no logos at all but it's hard to get a good polo that doesn't have some small logo on it. A simple corduroy sport coat is another item to consider.
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAH, this fool is going to get his ass beat if he follows your advice. I actually am in high school, (sophomore) and this is my wardrobe:
Jeans: (Mostly PDC and ES got on a discount, and 1 pair APC NS)
Shirts: (H&M, Zara, Thrift Store, Diesel)
Assesories: (Necklaces, Err Belts and stuff)
Tees: Mondern Amusement, Alot of Uniqlo ( I was in Hong Kong for a couple of weeks), AA, Anything that looks nice.
Try to find what you'll feel comfortable in a wear it. Don;t copy the popular kids at your school because chances re they are still wearing Phat farm. On a different note, has anyone found it funny when a fat dude walks by wearing a Phat Farm T-shirt? I crack up every time.
