Just about everyone knows someone who has been bullied, in ways big and small. Understandably, though, many victims are reluctant to speak about their experiences. We found some who aren't.

In a perfect world, guys would look exactly like they do in GQ magazine. I’m not just talking about the attractive faces and toned bods, I am talking about haberdashery, the perfection of men's fashion. Sorry guys, but according to my unofficial research (people-watching from a bench at school), 94.6 percent of you are fashionably challenged. I know how much it would hurt your ego if you picked up a fashion magazine every now and then, so I will help you out. Here are five flares to add to your fall basics!
This is one man-cessory (man accessory) every guy should own! There is a big difference between women’s scarves and men’s, so don’t be so negative. Men’s scarves have a more masculine shape and color to them. Afghan scarves in navy and grey paired with a grey long sleeved shirt and dark jeans would be something effortless for even you lazy boys. If it’s a bit chilly and a long sleeved shirt isn’t enough, throw on a lighter grey jacket.
In all honesty, the more dressy-casual you look, the better. Sports jackets instantly amplify to stunning a look as simple as khakis and a tee or long sleeved thermal. Jackets in tweed, grey, blue, and brown are easiest to pair with.
Combat-style boots are very manly! Boots that come up about two inches above the ankle are perfect. Cuff your pants just above these boots and you will look like you walked right off the runway, I swear. A contrasting sock should come up past the top of the boot — black boots: grey socks; brown boots: cream or black socks.
This may sound generic but the right sweater is key to an outfit. Light weight sweaters without hoods are must-haves. These simple and solid colored sweaters can be matched with button up collared shirts, plaids, or worn alone. If you pair it with a plaid shirt, fold the bottom of the plaid sleeves up over the sweater creating a cuff and make sure to keep the collar of the flannel in with just the top of the collar peering out of the sweater. For a nighttime date pair a dark blue sweater with a light blue button-up and a red skinny tie. Keep the collar in and fold up the sleeves!
Rules: belts, no boxers, not skin tight, not baggy, no rips, dark colors, black is good, but dark blue is better. Khaki is key. Please? This might be a lot to handle but really these few rules will give you the perfect bottoms for all of fall and winter. Can you handle it?
Take a deep breath
So this might be a bit to take on; I know looking good can be scary. But if you snag these basics when you and your mom hit up the department stores, you will be in good shape. Girls love a guy who knows how to dress. And GQ models.
