As many do in middle school I became entrapped in what we call an emo phase. I am now going into my senior year in high school and want to look my age for once. All of my clothes are band tees and cargos or skinny jeans that are far too large for me. I have a bad baby face and I can't grow facial hair to help it, I've been told a piercing could help me look closer to my real age but I really don't want to look like a lesbian. Any kind of clothing suggestions or other advice is welcome, my goal is just to look my real age (17, yes I know I don't look like it but that's why I'm asking this)
Start working out a bit, weight training will help you beef up a bit. Other than that, wear what you're comfortable with. You're 17! You get to be whoever you like at this age, you'll age up before you know it and you'll hate it then :( enjoy being young.
Your features are somewhat feminine to me, such an astounding long and thin neck like a swan. Maybe you could attract some girls on this, but I think safer is just bulk up like hell. Go heavy, lift big, dominate the whole world. You are a ninja, fuck everything. You destroy and conquer. Fuck everything. You pillage. Stop being emo. Go hardcore. Metal? I don't know, black? Just bulk up and break through some walls. Wear tight clothing after you bulk up a bit to show off the physique. Then you get the vagina.
enjoy looking young while you can, its not fun looking older. I still look like I am 15 minus the fact my hair is falling out (that can be solved with a hat or bennie for a couple more years). Plus Buy different clothes to add to your wardrobe like more casual clothes so you don't get mocked for being emo as bad. though if you have the behavior of an emo that may not change just because you try to ditch the fashion and try to look older, sad thing is the emo mentality is somewhat permanent to some. I should know I have it as well and so does my best friend, We just learned to find ways to cope with life.
I think you should cut your hairs a little short. Second for the clothes, stop wearing skinny jeans, wear normal jeans. That is much better. Wear Polo shirts (T-shirts with collar) instead of T-shirts. Thirdly stop wearing polyester nylon and go for more natural blend of shirts like cotton or wool depending on weather in your area
