Q. im 14 and a girl(:
im not loving my boring teeshirts and jeans look... can someone give me advice or send a link on what i should wear thats new and different. thankss(: pleaseee..

A. Here's some advice:

-The average person has 7 pairs of jeans. That being said, you don't need seven off the bat. A good number to start with is 3, and then work your way up.
-Dark wash jeans are slimming, and everyone could use a couple pairs of dark wash jeans
-the classic colors (and ones that you should focus on getting) are dark wash, medium wash, light wash, black, grey, and white (the last three are bordering on trendy but they will still look good for years to come)
-colored jeans (like turquoise, yellow, purple) are trendy; get them if you're okay with wearing them for only the next couple of years
-Every girl does not look good in skinny jeans, nor does every girl look good in all the denim fits. You must accept that your body is best flattered by only certain fits
-Skinny jeans look best on skinny women, because the tapered leg makes the hips look wider and curvier by comparison
-straight leg or bootcut fit jeans look best on most women, because they are the classic fits and flatter the average woman with average hips.
-bootcut or flare jeans look best on curvy women, because the flared leg at the bottom slims the hips a little by comparison, slimming and lengthening the entire leg
-wide-leg trouser jeans look best on plus-sized women, because the wide leg gives a clean, long line that flatters the plus-sized woman's curves
-when you find the perfect fit for you, any color jean will work. even though people say white denim accents your "flaws" like big butt, big thighs, etc, if the fit works on you, then it flatters you, and the color is only a detail
-low rise looks best on women with short torsos, long legs or big butts
-mid rise looks best on women with a "pouch" that they'd like to hide or plus size women
-mid or high rise looks best on women with longer torsos or plus size women
-cheap denim has its merits; when the jeans are damaged or destroyed, they are cheap to repurchase/replace. they can even be as cheap as $10 is some places
-premium/designer denim has its merits too; they are made of Pima cotton, which is a higher quality cotton that makes denim last longer due to longer fibers. designer denim tends to fit a greater variety of people better, because designer denim stores tend to focus only on denim and so cater to more peoples' tastes. premium jeans are known to last a decade with the proper care
-to take proper care of denim, machine wash cold and air dry. there are other ways to make jeans last even longer though, check out this handy guide: http://www.jcrew.com/AST/Navigation/Deni�

-Every woman has different styles of jackets that look best on them. Check out myshape.com, where you can find the body type that best fits you, and read the tips on what types of jackets flatter you best: http://www.myshape.com/shop/shape-anatom�

-sweater quality depends on price and materials used. cotton tends to be the cheapest, and is usually great for everyone
-merino wool is in the middle concerning price and warmth retention
-cashmere is the best in terms of softness, and warmth retention, but it is expensive and must be taken care of

-it depends on what you want in shoes. try out all the styles when you go shoe shopping
-converse (chuck taylors)
-ballet flats
-gladiator sandals (trendy)
-sneakers (like Nike)
-boots (like Uggs)
-slouchy boots (trendy)
-boat shoes and oxfords (very preppy)

-up to you

Layering tops:
-basically anything can be a layering top, try neutral colors if you're unsure (classic neutral colors: khaki, navy, grey, burgundy, black, white)

-you can have it based off an pre-existing label (like prep) but try to distinguish yourself, throwing in interesting shoes, or accessories, or wear jeans/corduroy instead of chinos (for example)
-it helps to write out what you want yourself to look like
-try things you've never thought to try on before (maybe henleys, polos, rugby shirts, corduroy, sweater vests, dresses, etc)
-remember, keep patters to scale: if you are petite, small patters look best (like pinstripe), if you are big, big patters look best (like thick stripes). Solid colors look best on everyone.
-Petite women should try to stay away from polka dot, because it may remind people of Minnie Mouse

Where can I find information on the company who manufactures Starter sportswear?

A. Nike is the owner and manufacturer on the Starter sportswear line of clothing.

NIKE is the world's #1 shoemaker and controls more than 20% of the US athletic shoe market. The company designs and sells shoes for a variety of sports, including baseball, cheerleading, golf, volleyball, hiking, tennis, and football. NIKE also sells Cole Haan dress and casual shoes and a line of athletic apparel and equipment. In addition, it operates NIKETOWN shoe and sportswear stores, NIKE factory outlets, and NIKE Women shops. NIKE sells its products throughout the US and in about 160 other countries. Nike brand veteran Mark Parker succeeded Bill Perez, who resigned in 2006, as president and CEO.

Image-savvy NIKE sells its products through about 22,000 retail accounts in the US and through independent distributors and licensees in other countries. Subsidiaries include Cole Haan (dress and casual footwear), Bauer NIKE Hockey (hockey equipment), Hurley International (sports apparel for skateboarding, snowboarding, and surfing), and Converse (classic and retro-style shoes including the Chuck Taylor brand). In 2004 it purchased athletic apparel and footwear makers Official Starter Properties and Official Starter LLC. In late 2004 NIKE bundled the brands into a unit called Exeter Brands Group, based in New York City. The group develops brands in discount retailers, such as Wal-Mart and Target.

The company is rethinking some of its long-standing agreements with retailers, particularly during the retail industry's consolidation push in 2005. As Sears and Kmart begin to polish its own image as a combined entity, NIKE decided effective October 2005 to no longer sell its products in Sears stores nationwide. Sears carries competitor brands: New Balance, Reebok, adidas, and Skechers.

NIKE is keeping its eye on its brands and how customers perceive them -- and on the competition. When adidas-Salomon acquired Reebok in 2006, the deal put the joined companies in a position to compete with longstanding rival NIKE, which has held the top spot in the athletic apparel and footwear markets worldwide for decades.

Looking over its shoulder (striving to maintain its top spot), Nike began actively filing patent lawsuits in 2006 against its competitors, specifically adidas-Salomon. Nike asserts that adidas has used elements of its SHOX cushioning technology in developing the adidas Kevin Garnett and A3 shoes.

NIKE's also honing in on active female customers, particularly in 2005. It became fully committed to women in 2000, when the firm began making its women's shoes using molds made from women's feet. It had been using molds made from a small man's foot. The company followed up by expanding its apparel in fashionable colors and by rolling out trendy low-rise workout pants. Being known as a brand that caters to men (its "Be Like Mike" ad campaign) and as one that supports athletes who take performance and sports seriously, NIKE is focusing more on women who want workout fashion. While NIKE has experienced failed attempts to capture the attention of this target segment, the firm has reworked its organizational, product, and marketing strategy to get there this time around. The plan involves expanding its NIKE Women brand with a catalog and Web site redesign. It also anticipates operating a dozen NIKE Women stores in the US by mid-2006.

Like most clothing and footwear makers, NIKE is vulnerable to the moods of a fickle teen market. In the mid-priced shoe segment, brands such as Skechers have cut into the company's market share. Following the success of NIKE-sponsored golfer Tiger Woods, NIKE has developed a set of golf clubs and unveiled a Tiger Woods apparel line. In addition, the company -- which relies on contract manufacturers -- has taken steps to avoid more criticism of human rights violations in its factories.

In 2004, less than a year after entering the market, NIKE closed all of its Paris operations because of difficulties with its French franchise operator. The closures do not affect NIKE's otherwise healthy European expansion, including store openings in Barcelona, Hamburg, Lisbon, Madrid, and Milan, among others. The company altered the name of its women's stores, broadening the name from Goddess (taking on the original meaning of "Nike") to NIKE Women.

Co-founder Philip Knight announced in November 2004 he would step down as president and CEO, though he will continue as chairman of the company. Former S.C. Johnson & Son chief William Perez was tapped as Knight's successor but he lasted a year in the top spot. Mark Parker, a longtime Nike brand executive, was named president and CEO in January 2006, when Bill Perez left the company.
