Carry the rapper or hip hop look with a hoodie, a baggy jeans accessorized with a hat or a bandana.
Wear A Statement with Waistcoats
The waistcoat is to guys what the LBD is to girls. Take your pick from a wide range of these including denim, plaid or leather ones. Pair it up with a hoodie, add oomph to your style by wearing it in a creative and versatile way. Wear your waistcoat over a casual tee or a formal shirt with the longest piece of clothing showing from underneath the jacket. A tucked-in shirt with a waistcoat is too frumpy unless the coat is cropped. Compliment it with skinny jeans, a matching tie and leather shoes for the perfect nice-guy-next-door look.
Jeans is Your Second Skin
Some things can never go out of fashion irrespective of the fads and trends. A nice pair of jeans is just that one perfect piece of clothing. It’s comfy, stylish and wearable on several occasions. For teen boys, jeans are an everyday wear which is why baggy and loose fitted jeans are the perfect option. Stone-washed jeans are ideal for those who desire a rugged and rough look. Team’em up with bright & trendy T-shirts or a buttonned down shirt.
Chill with The Shorts
Chill your calves with cool knee length shorts. Opt for a khaki or plaid shorts and pair it with a sporting jersey and a white, collared polo underneath to get that preppy look. Flip flops are the best match with these shorts. And if you want an easy way out without affecting your dad’s wallet just convert an old pair of jeans or pants that have worn out at the knees into a pair of shorts by cutting and hemming them to the proper length.
Yes its true that sneakers are heart and sole to teenage boys. Once limited to being basketball staples, sneakers have invaded the fashion street worldwide. These are versatile pieces of footwear which can be worn with almost anything. But they have to be classic, something that is low cut and without any fuzz or glitz. Dress your pair with a tee, hoodie, jeans or shorts, it all works!
Accessories – A Teen’s ticket to “Coolsville”
Don’t miss to accessorize before you leave home. Match the belt with the shoes. Experiment with a Rugged neckpiece made of leather or big beads. Wear caps if you like the sporty look. Hats can be very trendy, when worn with jeans and a jacket. A pair of nice glasses and those big watches will turn your look into a very trendy one. Make the best match, do not be sloppy!
