    Preppy and Classy are always looks good! I'm going to recommend one article (don't be deterred by the fact that it is a fashion website) and then list a few stores & staples that I hope help you out.


    Stores that you can try:

    Abercrombie / True Religion for Jeans (but jeans are not really very preppy)

    American Eagle for Khaki's (pants & Shorts)

    Ralph Lauren for polo shirts and button downs

    J. Crew for shoes, button downs and sweaters

    GAP for pants / shorts

    Brooks Brothers for Ties & Button Downs & blazers

    Vineyard Vines for colorful ties & Bowties



    Loafers (Penny Loafers?)

    Bright Ties

    Button Downs

    Sport Jackets


    Seersucker (on anything)

    Nantucket Red Shorts

    Boat Shoes (Sperry's)

    Your American urmm...Do you have a uniform if not God your lucky ! But this is how the boys at my school dress (english school with uniform) untucked shirt, short tie , spickey hair or a weird kind of copy of Justin biebers hair not saying Jb has weird hair, i luv his hair God that sounds weird ok im gonna shut up now..., black nike trainers um like one of them nike over the shoulder bags things (i think there a bit girly, i have a pink one i use for my Ballet+other dance+gymnastics so yeah, but i guess if the most popular boy in the school has one they cant be that girly x ) but thats year 9 people so freshman is like year 7 i think? Hope it helps x If you dont have uniform look around next time your in town at what the popular looking boys and buy something like that, but dont wear anything your uncomfterble with ;D Good Luck x ♥

    i agree with lex but if you prefer a certain style (such as preppy) then the preppy boys at my school tend to wear khakies, sperry's boat shoes, polos, shorts, stuff like that. contrary to popular belief, abercrombie & fitch and hollister ARE NOT prep stores. they are beach wear and the like. prep stores are lacoste, a&e, l.l. bean, j.crew, ralph lauren, etc.

    you don't have to wear expensive clothes from like hollister or areopatale. just some nice jeans or khaki pants/ shorts from even a simple store like target. and a collared shirt or something really nice. for shoes i would say black converses or sperrys. flip flops are gross for guys unless they are nice rainbows. hope this helps:) and remember be yourself dont try to be someone else to be cool. because it never works. girls like guys who aree true to themselves! good luck in highschool! hope you have fun

    I recommend that you wear what ever you're comfortable in, and what ever you happen to like.

    People won't be on your case unless your pretend to be something you're not.

    Individuality is "all the rage".
