    Hi all,

    Fashion wise I'm quite new to the scence though I've always thought myself quite stylish for my age (15). Recently I've wanted to update my wardorbe for a new highschool I'm heading too. In doing so I bought a book by Alan Fussler "Dressing the Man: Mastering the Art of Permanent Fashion" which I found a bit helpful but it applies to suits so I'm trying make a parrel to it with urban ware.

    If anyone could help me out here, what I'm trying to achieve here is something thats classic but able to mix with urban clothing so I can still blend into my new school enviroment but also stands out. I also go clubbing so I like something that can be good for both day and night. So far I been modeling the models in Urban Behavior as the patterns and colours mix well.

    Any suggestions for accesories, shoes, clothing would be extremely helpful to me.

    PS: I like a pernament wardorbe so I don't have to spend tons of money to go with the colours and trends for the season.

    I'm in high school as well.

    As far as shoes go, a great pair of brown shoes. Puma makes some nice brown leather shoes, usually not too expensive. I've also got Cole Haan's which are great but can wear down very easily. The best purchase I've ever made was a pair of Bally laceup shoes on sale for 50% off. Make sure the shoes look nice and fit your style, and they should be comfortable. If you're looking for a moderately expensive pair of shoes to love for years, you better make sure they're near perfect!'

    Accessories: I have a thing for wallets, and a great wallet will last you many years. Look for something slim that will fit in your pockets with ease. Money clips are nice and thin, and look classy. Try something plain and silver for a classic look. Also, if you live in a cold climate, a scarf is a great thing to have. I got a Harrison cashmere grey scarf for about 50 dollars last year.

    Hope this helps!

    i think it's really helpful to look through waywt threads and browse online shops to just see what you like and dislike.

    Ummm... Wait for couple of years and you will find your own style. Otherwise you don't HAVE style. [​IMG]

    exactly. Even if you do buy things some are considered 'timeless' there's no guarantee you'd want to wear them in a few years when you do develop your own sense of style.

    My only advice would be to not spend very much money.

    In high school, I wore black ankle boots, brown ankle boots, black monkstraps, and I never wore jeans. I wore a lot of sweaters. It worked out pretty well. I was going to a public high school in which dressing "up" would not have worked out particularly well for socialization, but I managed to dress nicely and do some interesting things without being entirely too ostentatious.

    Yep, don't rush things. IMO, a style shouldn't be contrived or based solely on someone's recommendations, but an expression of one's personality. At 15, I'm certain taking care of your body and having fitting clothes will make you look alot better than your peers.

    Have as much fun with your wardrobe as you can when you're young. You have your whole life to learn 'the rules.'

    Wear jeans and t-shirts that fit properly, and you'll already be more stylish than a good percentage of american teenagers out there.
