I live in Sweden. I go to a private school and we all dress pretty preppy and stylish. We're not rich, but wealthy, as parents have good jobs and nice house, but we're not spoiled snobs who have designer clothes. However, at my school it's normal to wear heels to school when you're 14. If anyone gets the picture. I have some friends in US and when I was there it was a lot more laidback and in college people wear sweats. I'm going to college next year, my plan is to go to stanford. Will I look very out of place and snobby? I don't want to make a bad first impression.

i went to private school here in the states and felt the same way you do. I wore heels, nice skirts and a nice button down my first day in college and found that while I may not have fit in with the people wearing flip flops & holes in their jeans, I found a whole group of people that cared about their apperance and we got along well, it's not snobby, just a bit more classic and perhaps preppy, nothing wrong with that. Don't change who you are out of fear, you will undoubtedly get some comments from people complimenting your style, embrace it and you'll certainly find a plethera of like minded people at stanford. good luck0
