Nowadays, I wear Athleisure at home and in public, which is wearing athletic clothing or training gear. I wear running pants and running shoes, but I'm really just sort of a poser. I don't even work out or run anymore like I used to. I started jump roping but It's not consistent.

I've been a poser since high school when I used to wear skateboard clothing, hats, and shoes, but could only do a pop shove-it, and have been called out for by peers. I used to wear baseball hats with flat brims and beanies, but it changed to baseball hats with curved brims.

My favorite color has changed since High School as well. I used to wear green, and black, but now I wear gray and purple.

Definitely. As a high school student my clothing style consisted of a pair of jeans, a stabbed T-shirt and trainers. These days, I usually wear other types of trousers and prefer shirts (regular and Polo) as well as the occasional plain T-shirt.

I also invest more in shoes. I prefer semi-casual ones on a daily basis but also rock some boots (semi and regular) every now and then.

The style I sport is called "regular," by me. Only difference between now and high school is that I don't wear punk rock shirts anymore.

Yeah, looked like some kind of goth/hard rock dude combination. Dyed hair, black clothes. I look more "normal" now, I suppose.

Yes, use to wear denim and out half a pound of hair gel on, looked like a right prick.

Nowadays more concerned about comfort revolving around summer and winter.

The only thing consistent is that I prefer heavy boots over trainers, trainers don't last as long and the lightness feels like slippers.

Even a £10 - £15 pair of hard leather boots can last years.

Not really, Jeans, and shirt. I did have this weird period though when I was 18-19 because I lost 55kg and non of my clothes fit. I don't like clothes shopping.

Still mostly the same here. But I never wore anything special. I just liked to match, so I guess that is simple enough. xD

Still the same. Jeans and a t-shirt. Only difference is now I wear shoes with some support instead of Chuck Taylors. I also don't shave my head anymore but I do keep it very short.

Yes and no ,No, in that I still wear khaki pants and cargos I never could go back to jeans I just find them ugly and uncomfortable. And yes I don't wear any band t-shirts or Tie-dye shirts anymore I just wear boring color shirts with no logos on them.

I used to wear jeans in high school but I don't wear them now. Too bulky. A period in high school I wore skinny jeans. My mom wanted me something better and I guess skinny jeans was the trend back then. Also, my brother would wear skinny jeans so she got that idea from my brother. But the skinny jeans were mostly tight on me. I don't know why people need to follow trends. I just wore whatever I wanted.

Now I wear mostly khakis and I think cargo pants.

Mostly the same. I've always dressed fairly casually.

casually my jeans have gotten less baggy and subsequently more uncomfortable. i'll typically wear running shoes as opposed to the sambas i used to wear as they're more supportive. in the summer i never used to like the feeling of flip flops but now i wear them constantly when the weather is warm. i actually wear more hoddies now than i ever did in hs.

comfort is still a major factor over fashion. never cared then, don't particularly care now.

To the extreme, For sure yes - I used to wear baggy clothes -throwback jersey's (Allen Iverson, Pistol Pete + Paul Pierce). Now I wear running shoes, with a normal size tee and levi or Apc Jeans.

No not really. I always went and continue to go for comfort, and comfort doesn't really change.

I'd go so far as to say I have an aversion to style and trends, so I never did the whole saggy/baggy jeans that were popular in the 90s, name-brand t-shirts and shoes, and so on. People who never rode a skateboard dressing like skaters....

My style hasn't changed much, but I stopped buying graphic tees for a while there and have started wearing an undershirt almost every day now, to either help keep me warm or to help absorb sweat.

Midway through the year I did make an effort to buy some nice dress clothes, but the opportunity hasn't come up to wear them very much. I guess it was a waste of money.

Depends if I compare it to Early HS me then yes, those were my days of barely skating (and I mean barely) but dressing with lots of skating brand names (following my cousins lead), cargos, tricotas.

Then I started to give less of **** and I asked myself why did I insisted in wearing a specific type of clothing that was particularly uncomfortable? I started wearing sweaters and I haven't looked back since lol. You can call that Late HS.

So sweater, pants/jeans, trainers. Now same as then except much more pants than jeans.

High school: t-shirts, button-ups or polos with jeans and nice shoes.

Now: button-ups, polos with jeans and some type of leather shoe.

I wore normal clothing at that time like denim jackets but now I prefer fancy and stylish attires like a black leather jacket with jeans and glasses. More fashionista these days.

My clothing is more fitted now. Looks way better than baggy jeans and shirts.
