How am I doing for a 16 year old? - Page 14

post #196 of 205
I also find black looks harsh on almost anything you pair it with. I'm not saying there's no time and place for it, but it's not something that's easy to make look good.

I also love how many threads on SF go off on seemingly ramdom and unrelated tangents. I've not read all of this thread, but I did see some posts about homosexual conservatives. Are we heading towards 'Dumb Threads' territory here?

Just sayin'


LOL.

OP: Your tie isn't bad. I sort of like it. Ivy-League Prep-ish vibe?

SF is like a conversation..

The contrast between a conversation and a lecture, the conversation normally feeds itself on participants reactions and inputs..

They do go off track sometimes and come back to the original subject again...

In relation to the OP's post...

For your average high school and typical ~17 year old's world, OP is acting a bit too grown up. Most of the people here, especially those encouraging him, are full grown adults. But OP is 16 and not our peer. But he will probably look like an uptight, elitist or twat among his own peers and that breaks a universal rule of appropriateness.

Even if you thrift all the clothes, it's really a waste of money and time when you will grow out of them and probably limit yourself socially.

The right way to do this is to pick one or two items maximum that are nice standout pieces. For example, a great pair of shoes to go with an otherwise typical, well fitting, good quality 16 year old's outfit. Or perhaps a well fitted shirt with an interesting pattern and wacky tie but the rest, again, typical teen clothing.

You should be fine looking in the Streetwear forum, but I don't really think you should be doing anything you read here just yet.

If my high school experience was anything to go by, a scrawny teen like OP would be better off fitting in with his peers rather than trying to dress older than he is. This is especially true as it seems to have the opposite effect due to his size. Whilst he may be better dressed than others of his age in the opinion of posters here, it's not their opinion that counts at that age and he is doing himself no favours really. He is just going to stand out, and not in a good way.

You should smile at the camera. The "I'm a cobweb of emotion" look is best suited for people without curfews.

Or future serial killers.

Remember Harvey Proctor? Some can also sell you clothes once their private life has seen them drummed out of parliament.
