BLACK HAIR DYE:
because blonds don’t really have more fun (not at the Get up Kids show, anyway). Wear a thick headband.
because how else are you gonna carry 7-inch vinyl???
Ripped off your little brother’s back.
STUDDED BELT AND BRACELETS:
Show your punk roots tough: After all you are a sensitive soul. So wear a lot of pretty bracelets to express your soft, girlie side.
Load with seminal EMO cds from: Hot Water Music, Rival Schools and Sunny Day Real Estate.
DARK DENIM JEANS:
Roll them up once — never twice.
Shiny and black.Comfy while standing for hours at shows.
Argyles!Stripes!Stars!Whichever pattern your pick, make sure you show them off.
Whith thick frames, of course.Think Weezer’s Rivers Cuomo, or your science theacher.
The one with fun, ironic slogans from where tou were a kid.Cheap and fun to shop for at thrift stores.
TOO SMALL SWEATERS:
To help you get that slouchy, dissaffected look.Extra points if you find one of the Grandpa’s closet.
Wear it in janitor-style.If you add the wallet, you might accidentally be mistaken for a nu-metal frat rocker.
A used copy of J.D. Salinger’s Franny and Zooey,rock critic Greil Marcus’ Ranters and Crowd Pleasers, and a notebook to express your innermost thoughts.
Ratty old converse or vans.Avoid anything too obviously shiny or new — or risk looking like a jock!
