What was your look in high school? - Page 4

post #46 of 66
1971 - 1973

Full hippie regalia - Land Lubber hip huggers, frye boots, work shirts (embroidered by g-f of the moment) or t-shirts or army surplus shirts. Surplus army parka in cold weather. Very long hair.

Class of '88. High school was a mish-mash of Levis 501s, black, Chuck Taylors, preppy polo shirts, metal concert tees, break-dancing puma suede shoes with fat neon laces (I heard those came back in style recently) and any other flavour of the month look.

Anyone remember 42nd Street shirts?

i dont even want to remember what i looked like in high school.

i was a big fan of Tears for Fears and Belinda Carlisle. dont ask me why. i had posters of them in my room.
"....Shout , shout.....let it all out..." i loved that song. i still listen to it if it comes on the radio. and that song by Cloud 9. one hit wonder song. i loved that melody.
lot of songs in the eighties had great melodies. Depeche mode had alot of great melodic songs. Mr. Mister. dang.

my hair was new wave crazy, i had parachute baggy pants with rolled up tapered pantleg hems, i was skinny , big-head, pencil neck , big glasses , goofy looking ,nerdy loner.

You have kept the same style for 20 years...That's amusing and a bit strange....

I have done the same kind of thing but my purchases are evolved with my spending power...

How many people have actually crossed the rubicon and changed their looks...

my purchases have def evolved as well....but I do have Doc Martens sitting on my shoe rack next to Edward Green and Paul Smith so go figure.

I'm more surprised how many, in high school, were wearing Brooks Brothers etc. Odd to see so many gearing up like old geezers when they were 17/18. Frankly I don't trust an 18 year old that doesnt wear jeans, sneakers, tshirt as a daily outfit. Were they all trying to be Alex P. Keatons???

I have got all my fashion problems pretty much solved for me. I wore school uniform.

I wore lots of Dickies-type work pants, in all colors. Dickies or chinos.

I was a bit skater/punk rock. I haven't worn denim in years.

I didn't care in high school, I wore baggy jeans, plain tshirts, sweatshirts, and whatever sneakers were in style at the time. It wasn't until I was about 19-20 (and had a girl that would except no less than the best) that I started dressing well.

Oklahoma City public high school, graduated '89. -Polo knit shirt on warm days (lots of horizontal stripes). -Polo long-sleeve sportshirt on cooler days (lots of plaid). -If not Polo, Harold's was a big player in OKC during that time. -Cotton v-neck tennis-style sweaters. -Cotton cable knit sweater vests over a white Hanes Beefy-T. -Cotton crewneck patterned sweaters (I remember a Colours by Alexander Julian and a few Boston Traders). -T-shirts were a big thing (Ocean Pacific was passe at that time. Vuarnet and Hard Rock Cafe were in). I also wore a lot of tennis themed t-shirts (Le Coq Sportif, Fila, Boast, Ellesse, etc.) -I'm pretty sure I was wearing Levis 550s at the time. Kind of a relaxed fit. No one wore khakis or anything dressier than jeans to school. -Cole Haan or Polo loafers, no socks (usually paired with the shirts and sweaters listed above). -Duck shoes -Wore tennis shoes quite a bit (usually paired with the t-shirts listed above). I recall having a pair of these (I thought John McEnroe was cool.): -For outerwear (not much of a winter in OKC), most everyone wore ski jackets. I had two CB Sports jackets, one navy down coat and one charcoal grey powder jacket. -Also, embarrassingly, duck boots were trendy to wear. Didn't have to be rainy or snowy. Any day was fine for duck boots.

I pretty much dressed like Rick Astley in that video. Yeah, you know the one. I was all about the chambray.
