Out Of Step More Students Favor Dressing To A Different Drummer.

Students will go to extremes to show their individuality when it comes to school clothes. The extremes were broken on the first day of school by students Stuart Siegel and Erik Garcia. They decided to wear tuxedos to tell the world: They are seniors.
Trends are for the unimaginative. I wear to school whatever is comfortable and whatever strikes my interest at a glance, said Garcia, a Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School student. The tuxedo distinguished me from the mass and with that distinction I felt comforted.
Other students did not go quite as far as Garcia and Siegel, but did go to their own extremes in shopping for back to school clothes.
Most popular this year seems to be comfort. Baggy jeans, oversize T shirts, and shorts for the South Florida weather are in with students.
This year I bought mostly shorts and jeans, some Esprit outfits, and some dresses from Express. I dress casual and comfortable for school, but I like to dress up when I go out on weekends, said Neisha Daswani, a senior at Stoneman Douglas High School.
The casual look is definitely noticeable in shirts. Colorful print button up shirts worn baggy and Gap Pocket Ts are being worn by the masses. Taking Dads pinpoint Oxford shirt fresh out of the dryer and wearing it wrinkled is also popular.
Big and baggy is also the look with pants. Girbaud jeans bring many sales, despite a hefty pricetag. Among the less expensive, but still popular, are Blue Zone jeans.
Blue Zone jeans are popular with kids 15 and up, said Tracey Ciaccio, manager of Chess King at Coral Square Mall.
Shoes this year have a dare to be different look. Among the more popular are Na Na Dr. Martens, which are a converted, more comfortable Army boot, with an air pocket sole. Also popular are Keds, G. H. Bass canvas shoes, and Birkenstock sandals.
Of all the fashion trends this year the most popular seems to be wanting to dress differently than anyone else. A little ironic, but most people are tired of following the crowd.
I dont follow trends. I dress how I feel comfortable. I think that people should make their own styles instead of wearing what their schoolmates wear, said Marjorie Ebrahimi, a senior at Stoneman Douglas High.
