We all know that becoming a teenager and going to high school means that you'll become more aware of how you look.

    Clean out your closet. Take all your clothes out and place them somewhere that you can see them all at the same time (e.g., bed, floor). Separate your clothes in two sections; the clothes you like and the ones you don't. Get rid of the things that are out of style, don't fit, are damaged, or that you don't like anymore. Donate these things to charity, or if you want to make extra money, sell them to a local consignment shop or a place that pays on-the-spot, like Plato's Closet, or Uptown Cheapskate.

    Figure out and define your style. Everyone has a different style, and it is probably made up of many different tastes and fashions. Make it your own and make sure it's something you feel comfortable with. Read magazines such as InStyle, Lucky, Seventeen and Teen Vogue/Vogue for some fashion inspiration. Examine ads and articles and pay attention to what you like and dislike. When you go into clothes stores, buy the stuff you like best and won't regret buying. Try on and feel fabrics to see which you would like best to wear. Try to emulate the former and avoid the latter.

Scour second-hand shops, Forever 21, Urban Outfitters, local boutiques and garage sales for unique garments and accessories.


  • Show confidence when you wear your clothes; don't be ashamed of your appearance.
  • Make your own style. Combine clothes that nobody has before. Your own style says who you are.
  • Fashion is a vicious cycle. What's in the thrift store today will be on the runway tomorrow, so think twice if you have clothes you like and are only considering giving away because they aren't 'fashionable'. Style is personal and doesn't fluctuate the same way that fashion does.
  • Purchase small accessories that will match your new outfits.
  • If someone has something you like don't copy it exactly, find something you like that looks similar so that they won't think you are a style-stealer.
  • Be open minded about trying new things.
  • Being original requires attitude. If you don't have the self-confidence to stand up to your fashion choices, you'll begin to water it down until you look like anybody else.
  • And remember to just be yourself.
  • You can go sci-fi, boho chic, or runway ready. Find a style that reflects you.


  • Don't copy others' styles directly or completely. Be inspired by others, but make their ideas your own.
  • Watch out for your school's dress code if they have one.
