There are a few common styles for high school, and it is certainly best to determine which category you fall under, and stick to it.
  • Stereotypical Preppy: Girls with the newest cute trends, such as skinny jeans and blouses, etc. These girls dress their outfits up with adorable accessories, belts and the like. They wear Aeropostale, Abercrombie, Hollister, American Eagle, and PINK by VS. You may call them the 'common population'.
  • Traditional Preppy: Girls who wear polo shirts, skinny jeans, tight shorts, cardigans, and Sperry's. They always wear pastel or bright colors, dark wash pants, and top-siders, canvas shoes, tennis shoes, or boots. They accessorize with pearls, jewels, belts, and classier jewelry. They typically wear Ralph Lauren, US Polo Assn., J. Crew, Lacoste, Vineyard Vines, GAP, etc.

  • Prep Rock: Similar to stereotypical preppy, but with pops of red, black and commonly grey. They prefer things like dark wash flare jeans, but still make a lot of effort to look cute and girly, while sticking to the things they love. Prep Rock girls aren't afraid to try new things and commonly dye their hair. They have lots of good friends and stand out from the crowd.
  • Sheer Goth: Black, Red and Grey make up almost the entire wardrobe. They can still be very upbeat and fun loving, so don't judge a book by its cover. Leather jackets are a favorite amongst all of them. Very unpredictable yet very chic, Sheer goth is a stylish option for those who like a darker appearance.
  • Scene: Scene looks focus on hair. The almost always have poofy hair with bangs, and wear whatever is in style with hints of neon colours. They have an acute sense of style with fantastic choices of color.
  • Fashion, regardless is THE MOST IMPORTANT first impression. Despite what ALL the articles say, most people WILL judge by appearance the first time they see you. If you have your shirt tucked in, loose highwater (jeans above your ankles but below the knee) you Re not making a fashion statement. Your friends may love you the way you are, but they won't tell you to change your fashion as it may hurt your feelings. Sad but true. It's simple enough to dress up a little, and will make you approachable and adorable. It's the first thing potential friends will notice. Fashion is THE MOST IMPORTANT statement, but not everything. Even simple jeans that compliment your butt with a cute sports cut off is super chic.
