You're 16, no-one is going to care what is actually fashionable anyway - they'll only care about what is trendy at your school in particular, which is whatever the cool people are wearing. What I'm trying to say is just be yourself, wear what you like with confidence and people will think you're stylish.
But if you really want some tips, simple is really the way to go. A solid colour t-shirt, blue/black/tan chinos or jeans, a bomber jacket and white or black sneakers is a cheap, stylish look that a 16 year old can wear anywhere.
The best advice I can give you is to find your own style, you will make mistakes along the way but that's how you learn. Try to avoid statement pieces if you don't know your own style however - avoid leather jackets, unique hats, vests, blazers, all "classy" wear etc. All of these things can certainly work, but only if the wearer knows how to pull it off, and that the style works for them. You'll learn eventually what unique items you can wear and what to wear them with.
You can get decent, cheap clothes from stores like H&M and Uniqlo. Once you work out your style after wearing different cheap clothes over the years, you can start to shell out the cash for quality key pieces of clothing (shoes/boots/outerwear/jeans). Here's a couple of basic guides to a standard fashionable wardrobe.
The last thing is fit - probably the most important part. If you're used to your parents buying clothes for you then you're probably used to wearing clothes that are too large. Generally speaking, you want all of fabric of a shirt to be touching you (but not tight). Pants shouldn't be baggy around the bum/crotch or waist (the legs differ according to the style).
Thank a lot,aprecciate the advice and i am going to follow it :D
