Can you make a video? to dress casually for young men around 16.
If you want to look casual but still stylish, start by building a wardrobe that has collared shirts and non-blue jean trousers. They don’t have to be blue oxford shirts and khakis — you can leave that to older guys working in cubicles — but experiment with dark indigo, colored corduroys, etc., and pair the trousers with a patterned collared dress shirt of some kind. Roll the shirt sleeves for a more relaxed look.
If you’re feeling ambitious, throw on a blazer. Most teenagers don’t wear jackets, so you can expect to get some comments, but a casual blazer in a color like brown or light gray is definitely not “business dress,” and it gives a good shape to your upper body.
Nicer shoes is also a good touch on a younger man. Most guys are just wearing tennis shoes, so a pair of casual leather dress shoes makes you look very sharp.

I find that anything (except maybe for ties and other business-oriented accessories) can look casual if paired with a nice pair of clean denim. Collared shirts, cardigans, even blazers if you’re feeling confident. Combine with a nice pair of leather dress shoes and you’ll be looking more stylish than most guys your age.
I’m in college right now and that’s pretty much my wardrobe. Sometimes i might try a blazer and like Geoffrey mentioned, you will get looks and comments, but mostly positive ones, especially from the ladies. And don’t worry about harsh remarks or teasing (doesn’t happen often), just wear it with confidence, knowing you’re probably much more appealing than those making fun of you.
I remember the first few weeks I started wearing blazers in casual, non-work settings, right around that same college age…it was always about five minutes of ribbing the first time my guy friends saw me, and about fifteen minutes of “man, I can’t believe how good you look!” from my lady friends.
Fair trade, in my book!
