Anyone into brooches/pins? Do you wear them and how? I found so many pretty vintage brooches recently and want to start using them in outfits.

The 90s plaid A- skirt / overall combo with a shirt underneath it is the look I’m going for, but my friend said it’s not trendy anymore. Too bad cuz the cut and pattern looks good on me and I just bought 6 variations and colours of this look for $360. No refunds available. How would I make this look more trendy and up to date? I was thinking frilly blouses instead of a plain shirt and thigh highs instead of my typical combat boots
there's literally no keeping up with the trends, they come and go far too fast.
Just wear what you want. It's much better to wear your own taste in fashion than to follow the trends like a sheep anyway.

thanks anons! I’m considering splurging on a nice hefty pair of Doc Martens or platform boots to go with my purchases. I’d like to mix and match with my outfits too, so I’m still going to buy lacy tops to wear underneath my dresses. Since they’re all Plaid, I might just get some info from Clueless (I love the fashion in that movie!)

I absolutely love the outfits in Clueless or simply everything Alicia Silverstone and Liv Tyler wore in teen movies back then. Probably looks bad but I also like all denim outfits (like denim skirt + denim jacket) lol
Kpop girls sometimes wear stuff inspired by the 90s too but I'm worried about looking too childish or like a weeb/kboo…
I feel like what makes kfashion is more about the hair, makeup, and being petite. I see tons of western/white girls dress like >>125628
>>125627 they just don't put as much effort in their hair and makeup. Also depending on the girl they tend to not be as petite, which is fine. So it comes across as a different look.

People aren’t paying attention unless you’re dressed like this or mostly naked. The larger the crowd, the closer you are to invisible amongst it.
Most people don't care or notice much what you're wearing unless it's really out there. Expand your horizons, start small and try out what you like.
I got a rude comment once when I wore fishnets which saddens me a bit because I really like the look of them. I still wear them sometimes though cause fuck it.
First, let your anxiety build to the point where you feel like you're always being stared at.
Then, start wearing whatever you want. When you get that feeling that people are staring at you, you'll think "Must be my clothes", and the fact that you deliberately went out like that (instead of just existing as a spectacle) will make the whole thing feel impersonal and inconsequential.
I used to do this when I was overweight in a desperate bid to distract both myself and others from my body, and the habit just stuck even after I lost weight. It's rather liberating now (and of course people give you more leeway if you're not a landwhale). I can wear anything I think is nice, no matter how stupid it might look to others.
I mean skinny people are kinda in luck as a lot of things fit. Not without reason skinny people model clothing. I wouldn't worry too much about the general standards of dressing for your frame. You've pointed out a lot of negatives and honestly I think you're downplaying your own body. Try to accentuate what you like.
If you want some general ideas I'd say skater cut dresses give a nice illusion of curves. Avoiding anything too tight or too baggy. Lots of layering. Avoid all-black as that will slim you down. Patterns, prints or bright colors are a good way to go.
I'm tall and skinny as fuck myself. Personally I usually opt for leggings/pantyhose with skirts or shorts with more oversized/loose tops to balance it out. I dislike my scrawny upper body way more than my legs, but that's just me. If you go for baggier pants etc. one day formfitting tops will often balance it out. That's my motto anyway. It's good to switch up and just say fuck it and not follow rules though.

Honestly the fastest way to look feminine + stay comfy is simple dresses since it's just one garment that you don't need to pull up or fix too often. Flowy shirt dresses like pic related (colour and pattern irrelevant) are great imo. Otherwise, any skirt that isn't a pencil skirt is pretty comfortable.
I also really recommend dress pants/slacks! The tapered ones are pretty flattering, but holy shit. Way more comfortable than jeans and
it makes it look like you put effort into your appearance.
Don't have any hair advice though, I just braid mine and use my ethnicity as an excuse hehe.

Thank you for the solid advice! I love millenial pink, my only problem is that it's so easy to accidentaly buy an item which is in a different shade of pink due to screens displaying colors differently.
How should I wear pink dresses? With black jackets and hosiery?
A biiit too much on the age play/ABDL range for me
You actually can get pretty much the same style from age play/ABDL sites for cheaper since its not handmade.

If this is your own label, imo most of your pieces are really nice but this looks like a sissy costume. Also it might help your brand to see things modeled on a bigger variety of people.>>127637
20 is so young so wear whatever makes you happy while you can, most of ye efamous jfashion wearers are at least in their mid twenties anyway. It's easy to distinguish the cute instagram fashion bloggers from the abdl kink accounts but you have to accept that to normies we all look alike

Not my own brand, thanks for the advice though (sounds sarcastic but I'm serious…yes I love to make clothes).
It had ageplay vibes for me too but I think that was because of the comments. What do you mean with variations? Like plus size?

Does anyone know of any American shops/sites that sell (less expensive) outfits similar to this one? Is there a proper name for this style?https://instagram.com/sheglit_official?igshid=zfuh0yx6x7r4
Thank you, Anon. Yeah, I’ve never browsed /cgl/ or bothered to learn any Japanese fashion terms, which I now regret. I’ve always adored Mana’s outfits, though.
Would it be cringey if a white female in her mid-20s walked around an artsy town in a toned-down version of that outfit? I have a dark style to begin with, so it wouldn’t be too dramatic of a transition.

For the upcoming new year I'd really like to turn my entire style around, sort of from mousey plain jane to a "stacy" lol
Problem is, I don't really want to dress too sexy e.g. I absolutely don't want to show cleavage, that just makes me feel uncomfortable (a bit of leg is fine tho). Secondly, most of the popular girls on yt or insta are very tan and have a sort of beachy look, while I'm a really pale brunette (and I don't live in a warm place).
Does anybody know any sort of style inspiration that would fit this description? I really have no idea where to start, I neither really know what's "in", nor do I know what suits me. If it helps, I'm very tall and more of a pear shape, tho my butt is a bit on the small/flat side. I'd really appreciate any help.
Use Pinterest for inspiration. I wouldn't worry too much about trying to fit in with trends, go for whatever you feel fits your body and personal tastes.
You might want to look at basic minimalist/Scandi chic type of fashion. Simple, clean, not very revealing unless you want it to be, and would probably flatter your body type.
I never said I want to look trashy, I just have absolutely no idea what exactly I'm looking for, that's why I tried looking at instagram and co.
I mainly dressed more elegant/business chic when I was a bit younger, but while I find that style beautiful on other women, it just doesn't suit me, it makes me look boring and old af, like some bland mom. In general I look awful in anything beige or nude coloured, I need a bit more to not look "invisible" to others.
I have a similar problem and am desperate.
I have a massive case of Millie Bobby Brown syndrome, where I look like someone's chain-smoking, divorced Greek aunt if you put me in anything overtly feminine and slap thick eyebrows on me. I look normal in slightly tomboyish, Parisian-style outfits and short hair, but I want to feel more feminine and don't know how. I don't suit "sexy" and I don't suit anything overtly twee/cutesy, but more serious clothes like business casual and monochrome outfits make me look like reviewbrah. Right now guys just assume I'm gay. I'm running out of choices.
Oh I just bought so much cheap chain necklaces and earrings from aliexpress. I got pentagram earrings and fishnets from dollskill too because they looked like fire on the model. I hope I don’t come off as costume-y when I combine it with all black outfits.
Maybe I’ll give these accessories to my little sister for Xmas if I end up looking like an edgelord.

What kind of glasses are considered cute these days? I usually wear contacts. I don't want those Harry Potter style ones.
File: 1576027445011.jpg (113.85 KB, 1200x628, Edito_facebook_1200x628.jpg)
i have glasses like these right now but with more ornate little trill design things on the golden accent where the nose bridge is. There's also gold accents on the sides, but either than that, the shape and the colour scheme is the same as the photo. They're super cute and work well with any outfit! I personally like tortoise shell because it adds class to any outfit. I don't know what your personal style is, but I go for librarian chic with my glasses
Generally speaking fast fashion will be dirt cheap and have no real standing on ethically sourcing materials. They turn out new designs, new fashion trends, and bulks of clothes in a week. Most fast fashion companies have a huge catalogue of clothes and are often quick to retire old ones. That being said even other higher end brand might not ethical and even participate in fast fashion practice. It's just how fashion companies make money.
For Ted Baker in particular, it's a high end brand where pieces start off at 100, and according to their website they source all their material ethically. Their catalog is huge but I'm not sure how often they output new designs and discard old ones. Overall you wouldn't call this store a fast fashion brand. It's just too expensive.
So really just look at article of clothes, see how well it's made, see how quickly they adopt new trends, and then finally look at the price of clothing and if it matches to the quality
im probably too late to reply but… >cover yourself as much as possible (it helps against the burning sun)>wear light, breathing fabric (linnen)>something for your head (hat, scarf,…) >factor 50 sunscreen>sunglasses>unbrella if it gets really bad (you see a lot of people doing it at the pyramids of Cairo since its pretty much in the desert and the sun really burns… not everyone is made for it)
look at the locals and see what they wear, they usually know best.

What kind of blouse is pic related?
Some bigs ones I can think off the top of my head are Fashion Nova and Boohoo.
I thrift a lot now, but I used to use Romwe for some unique stuff.
I swear no one here is a """fashion experts""" here. I think most of us here have an interest or affinity for fashion and have things to say on it based on exploring the interest.
In my opinion, I would say there's a certain set of "rules" a majority of people would agree with, however fashion IS subjective therefore even "fashion experts" are going to have different opinions and outlooks on fashion. (I think the rivalry of Dior and Chanel back when they where alive is a fantastic example of two "fashion experts" with completely different outlooks on what a woman should wear). Therefore don't worry about looking ridiculous to those who are knowledgeable about fashion. (What even is being knowledgeable about fashion anyway if we agree it is subjective?)
You can look at a picture and replicate it, but if you don't understand what makes it good (or bad) can you really replicate/imitate it correctly? You probably don't have the exact same clothes as the picture.
Also I wouldn't want to have to reference a picture everytime I stand in front of my warderobe.
Although I don't think there's a lot of actual learning involved with daily casual clothing, it's mostly just common sense and average eye judgement that certain things don't work or don't look good.

This is super late but I hope you’re still around anon.
I wear 80s nerd glasses and it really makes every outfit stylish! Mine are by Vasuma in the style; “Eggeater”. A great alternative is by Ray Ban. They have identical ones but they’re slightly bigger.
Never too late. I recommend shopping cheap first (amazon, goodwill) to find out what you like to wear. For example, I bought a $2 pencil skirt from china, found out it's not my style, only wasted 2 bucks.
Just look up popular brands, find out what you like, follow those brands on ebay or poshmark or depop, watch some runways. It's an art.
they're just boots
I’m currently taking the Kibbe test. Some of these questions are ridiculously difficult; I have no clue if my shoulders are “narrow,” “sloped,” “symmetrical,” or “tapered.” How the heck does one determine such a thing? They just look like regular shoulders to me.
On a similar note, how did you guys figure out which “shape” your body is? I am 5’8 and thin with petite shoulders, small boobs, and pretty wide hips. My midsection curves in a bit (not “boxy” or rectangular). If I gain any weight, it generally goes to my thighs (though they are by no means “thick”). Any clue what shape this would make me, or should I break out the measuring tape?
I have a pair of vintage docs that were already broken in, and I still got blisters from them during the first while of wearing them since they had to adjust to my feet. So yeah, you're prob gonna be in for some pain. There's a lot of advice online for the best/easiest ways to break them in.
As for styling, I really like using them in edgier outfits, and to also make cuter, more feminine or pastel outfits a little more edgy too. I like the contrast between the styles. They add a lot of weight to your feet visually, which I feel helps balance out a lot of fits too. I feel like they're pretty versatile and can go with almost
anything tbh. Are there any outfits you're thinking about that you're unsure of? >>129800
If you're afraid of looking childish you could try matching pastels with black. Like a leather jacket and combat boots. Or just get some more business casual pieces but in pastel colours. Like a pastel blue blazer, for example. Is your problem really pastels, or is it that you're not dressing in work-appropriate clothing? Even if casual is allowed it's not always best to actually dress super casual if that's not the vibe the rest of the office has. >>129928
Top kek anon, this is how I feel with lot of fashion advice questions "How do I wear -insert generic versatile item that goes with basically anything-" like how do you even answer that>>129952
I think generally measurements are used to figure out body shape. From your description you sound pear shaped, but I know there has to be a certain amount of inches in difference between your chest and hip measurement to be "true" pear shaped. I don't bother with kibbe, I think going by apple, pear, or triangle shape you can get a general idea of what looks good and then go from there. Like, I'm kinda pear shaped, so I know a-line looks good. But I also have broader shoulders so strapless tops don't look good on me. You just have to keep narrowing it down and you slowly figure out what does and doesn't work for you. It's a process, and the main thing is to find pieces that you actually like and enjoy wearing, and that you feel comfortable in. Don't fall for the trap of what you feel you should
be wearing. (unless ofc it's for work clothing lol)
I find it really hard as well. I've taken a dozen tests and asked multiple questions for help in the libve thread here and still can't get it right because I don't know what I… Objectively look like?
It's the type of thing where you can so easily get it wrong and then style yourself completely incorrectly. Tbh sometimes I consider paying the fee for the online consultation

If you've found a clothing site that you're pretty sure is just an aliexpress reseller, how can you go about finding the items as cheap as possible? At the moment I just reverse image search and hope but it's not working very well.

I want a soft butch sort of look but I feel like my hips are a bit too big for it.
Not sure about AE, but on Taobao you can reverse image search.
Also there are some search terms you can use, like I know for Free People lots of reps/gray market items just say "FP."
Based on this post, maybe try 亚历山大麦昆 on Taobao.

What dress is this?
I love androgynous cuts and styling, but I have all the wrong body parts for it - narrow shoulders but wide (for my frame) hips, bigger bust, incredibly short legs. Everything that flatters me is ultra feminine, which isn't really my style.
I'm always struggling to find a middle ground between the styles I like and not making me look like a box on stumps. >>130558
Are you sure you're a size 0-2 (24-25") in the waist? Make sure you're measuring properly and not sucking in or pulling in the tape measure.
Having a couple of sizes difference between waist/hips sizes isn't unusual, but that big a difference would look quite odd, and to be frank, most people online seem to exaggerate their measurements a lot.
Either way, you want jeans with a lot of stretch so they can get over your hips - unfortunately, those are often skinny jeans, or jeggings, but a LOT of stores do "curvy" cuts nowadays - it was a much bigger problem say, 5 years ago - have you tried those? Do they fit?
If you're really a 0-2, it might be difficult as in my experience US brands, (except ones aimed at teens) are often badly vanity sized and a "0" is more like a 4.
I have a US 0 that fits like a UK size 10 (28" waist).

I adore this girls whole style but I'm not sure what to call it so I can build it more into my wardrobe (I have quite a few articles very similar that I've just thrifted over the years). Any ideas? IG; aclotheshorse
I'd say her style is a mix between prarie (long dresses, broderie, straw bags) and dark academia/school girl (plaid, hair bows, a-line skirts, berets) and maybe some more.
Anyway I think her style is fairly easy to pick apart in terms of items, you don't really need to know what to call the style (if it can even be called anything, it looks like a mixed bag to me) to know what to look for:
cutish animal jewelry
straw bags and hats
patterns: plaid, tartan, gingham, houndstooth, (dark) florals, cute-ish animal patters
colors: whites, mustard yellows, burgundy, dark greens

Did some browsing and this Valentino is similar to the one you pictured here in your third post, and is considerably marked down by being preloved.
Btw, if you liked those I'd really recommend checking out the Valentino runway shows on the vogue website - either for inspo or feeling shit about how poor you are. I think the first 2 were from the same 2015 collection.

i have no idea if this style even has a name honestly, but going through instagram tags a common tag seems to be "フレンチガーリー" which translates to 'french girly', but googling that in english doesn't bring up similar results. By observation it looks like a subtype of larme kei with more emphasis on nudes, and blacks, and faux french vintage. Sorry if that's a shitty description but here are some accounts that embody the style perfectly https://www.instagram.com/bibiy_official/https://www.instagram.com/carolina_natsuki/https://www.instagram.com/desir_etraison/https://www.instagram.com/sayaka_fukuyama/

No ideal man/woman, just style.
But basically my ideal style is trad goth style made of second hand clothes and the stuff you find from your grandma's attic mixed with interesting random clothes that aren't really goth clothes, mostly slight hippy stuff and slight influence of the current trends and feminine clothes.
Ideal body is hour glass, I prefer similar with >>130724
and I like curly hair, brunette or some interesting color but not neon colors.
the painting is a self portrait (Self Portrait in Sapphire Blue) of Stanisław Wyspiański, his other work is great as well.>>130752
Thank you! I get inspiration from certain channels like Karolina Zebrowska, Bernadette Banner, The Long Haired Flapper, sometimes even Lindybeige; I'm interested in the utility of clothes and armor. I wanted to add Herr Urst's website because he has some pieces that don't look completely like Nazi larps, but I've realized that is his whole wardrobe, which is, frankly, embarrassing. Glamourdaze has good reference photos, too. Hopefully that somewhat gets you into the rabbit hole of vintage fashion!

my fashion is a mix between edgy, 90s-inspired grunge to pretty preppy schoolgirl academic. i sometimes mix and match the two aesthetics which is easy because both styles have plaid skirts! sometimes i dress up super funky like a Bratz doll with platforms, various bold mix-n-match patterns and crazy accessories but i dislike the attention it brings. it's for fun but i feel self-conscious when people stare at me. i couldn't find anything on the internet that matches some of these crazy outfits i wear. right now i am in love with my 5 inch platform white thigh high Go-Go boots, mini pleated tennis skirt with a black ribbon at the bottom, a white bubble vest jacket, and oversized fruit earrings (cherry, watermelon, or strawberry). i wear red lipstick to match! my fashion inspiration is the 90s, Clueless, Sailor Moon, and Bratz dolls. i wasn't sure what bottom right was, so i put my fashion inspiration there. >>130755
thank you for the sources! i am going to dress more vintage and classic when i'm older. unfortunately my fashion right now will look "wrong" on older women because it "ages".

A lot of these elements don't match well but I don't really care. I just want to look like a classy-cute (but not too far either way, right in the middle) librarian with impressively long braids who is secretly beefy. I already dress mostly like this, just have to wait for the others to manifest.
And I assumed the "man/girl" quadrant to be how you want your partner to dress? I find all these people attractive though so it covers both lol.>>130762>ideal body>tfw ywn be a 2D representation of a rectangular prism
I'm absolutely loving your dress sense - built women with long braids is a god-tier combo.

Idk I like "gothic" looks but I prefer more normie makeup looks to the crazy shit that's popular with a lot of gothic fashion. I like thick eyeliner and dark eyeshadow colors but I don't like piercings, shaved eyebrows or green lipstick. Idk what you would call that? "Gothic-inspired casual?" "Gothic chic?" (Also yeah I understand goth is about the music, please don't lecture me.)
I also really like throwback seventies looks (which is why a lot of the male examples are musicians– it's not because I think musicians are automatically fashionable/attractive.)
I just took the bottom right to be the sex opposite your own regardless of what you're attracted to.

Right now my hair is very long and I love it but on the other hand bobs are so cute too…I either like it really short or really long, anything normal is somehow boring to me.
I really hope I manage to lose weight and finally hit my dream weight this year. My best point is my waist, my shoulders and hips are pretty balanced but my lower body is always slightly bigger than my upper half, so I guess I'm a mix of an hourglass and a pear.
Stylewise I'm rather terrible right now, I dress like an inbetween of an incel and a middle-aged housewive, so I really want to dress prettier, girlier and less boring. But I'm also very tall, so while I plan to get some skirts and dresses, it's probably for the best if I mostly stick to jeans instead of going full on feminine and frilly.
I don't have a male celebrity I like, so I just created my own ideal guy lol. But I've always really liked dark and longish hair.

I've been wanting to find some good cult party styled things around town, but most of the things I find are either super body huggy, too sheer, and rarely ever flow-y. I mainly search around thrift shops like Salvation Army and Goodwill hoping to find something nice. I find some good sweaters, but not really anything light or pale colored. It's so hard to find ivory colored clothing around here. Should I start doing the DIY route? Invest in a sewing machine and make things myself?

What’s this style called?
>>130997>Should I start doing the DIY route? Invest in a sewing machine and make things myself?
Yes. That'd be really cool, and you're picking up a new skill/hobby you can use for life.
Plus, I feel like handmade clothing fits the aesthetic of CPK pretty well.

I can never decide whether I want long straight hair or long curly/frizzy hair. I guess I'm just happy if it's long (and it is, right now).
I like darker fashion, especially old school gothic Lolita and EGA, as well as boho fashion. Basically, anything romantic, dark and/or cute/girly grabs my attention. Crosses and chokers are my favorite accessories.
I do also like anime shirts and sweaters, detailed thigh-highs/tights, anything with a sailor collar, crop tops, and the more typical "e-girl" fashion we see everywhere with all the chains/spikes and layered tees as more casual options, but I couldn't fit all of that into the style panel.
Didn't know what to put for the last panel, so I just added what I'd want my boyfriend to wear.
Go to a Chinese department store and pick something out from their underwear section. The bras manifacuted for Chinese consumers are on another level - they have really thick padding and they cinch you in like nobody's business. I have an A cup and a cheap pink Chinese bra I had made me look like I was packing D cups.
The benefits are they are affordable and give you tits for days. The downside is that they are uncomfortable and not long lasting - an underwire poking out or a strap coming off after being worn out is not uncommon. Be careful of the material too, if they are REALLY cheap and you have sensitive skin they might cause irritation since they're more or less modified plastic. I would suggest wearing them on occasion rather than daily use.

I have a love hate relationship with trousers. I have a small waist, short torso and massive thighs, I can only wear trousers with loads of stretch in them or leggings. Even then, I often have to deal with the crotch being far too low. Pic for reference. The stuff I said probably isn't helpful, but the best thing you can do is get the chance to go to stores and try out different cuts of trousers to see if you find them comfortable.
I like to layer mine over hoodies (or a long sleeved shirt if I want less bulk) that match the colors of the jersey. A gray hoodie looks great with my team's colors but I'm assuming your jersey is either 49ers or Chiefs so white would probably look better.
I wear either plain black leggings or black skinny jeans. If you really don't want to wear jeans I think leggings would be fine, looks especially cute if the jersey is an oversized fit.
I felt the same back when I was more into j-fashion, Lolita was cute but not practical for my office job lifestyle. Back then I wore more Liz Lisa, DreamV, Swankiss girly stuff because it was less "odd" looking. I still did feel like I stood out, and as I got older/career got more serious, I felt self conscious in that and started to just wear athleisure like every other woman in my city.
I don't know if those brands I mentioned are still at all in vogue, but I think the larme stuff and general 'harajuku' fashion can be princessy and cute without being as OTT as Lolita.
File: 1581029969418.png (1.05 MB, 954x968, goals.png)
I'm the same way, I alternate between wanting waist length hair and really short hair. Not a fan of the mid range. Sometimes I think about chopping it all off and buying a wig tbh.
Thank you for the recommendations! I looked those brands up and they are wonderful. I hope once I lose weight I will be able to wear and enjoy them!
Do you anons know of a good place to get j-fashion inspiration?
I want to finally feel pretty and wear my dream clothes. I wasted years of my life feeling ugly
I dress like a fuckboy and I just embrace it. It may be trashy or tacky but if you own it, you own it. Do your makeup to look good/feminine, wear your hair up, and have confidence that you look cool. My "look" is just kind of 'effortless' streetwear. Minimal jewelry, hair up, fairly natural makeup. People think I look good…I think. haha. Other hypebeast types give me an up and down of approval.
Don't wear counterfeit shit though, the kind of people who are into hypebeast brands WILL be able to ID that. It will also probably fall apart pretty quickly.

They are and they would. But get the all white ones.
On the topic of shoes/sneakers, people really underestimate how important they are to the whole fit. I see a lot of girls ruin nice outfits because they're wearing those nasty soccer mom brown boots or battered converses.

Honestly who tf is buying this stuff on depop? Peanut butter jar earrings? I saw jinco jeans with a creepy Ronald McDonald hand painted on it for like $80. Why? Who’s wearing this stuff? All the hot trending items are garbage “vintage” stuff that doesn’t even look nice or trendy. Throw in some bb UwU bratz doll prostitute tacky clothes in the mix.
I know this post is old, but:
I had long, waist-length hair my whole life, and was nagged endlessly by my mom to cut it. (I don't actually know what her issue was - there was nothing wrong with it, except it wouldn't curl - a sin in the 90s/00s - and it was eternally wavy)
I thought about it for a long time, and I realized my hair would never be the kind of long hair I wanted as I started doing more adult things. It was thick and heavy and I was wearing it off my face a lot, but it was so heavy I couldn't really put it in a bun unless I pinned it with a ton of bobby pins. Finally I decided to have it cut into a pixie. I knew how my hair looked in updos and I thought, maybe this is a more flattering look.
I freaked out for a few days after I did it, but I've never looked back. I get a lot of compliments on my hairstyle. People say short hair is less attractive, but I think it has a lot to do with the type of haircut and styling. I researched and went to a pricier place for my first cut, so that it would be done right. And then after that I had to find the right person for the upkeep - this is vital. I had some not so great maintenance haircuts. The one thing is that after a week or two, it usually looks OK.
I just wanted to share this because I was very torn about cutting my long hair, but I NEVER wanted anything in the middle. I wanted something very short or I wanted to keep it long. And so far that feeling hasn't changed.
The weirdest thing about cutting your hair though: if you've had long hair since childhood, often it's still long in your dreams, even if your dreams are meant to be from your current everyday life.

What ear piercing would suit me/my ears?
I've been wanting to get more ear piercings for years. I only have the normal ear lobe one everyone has.
My issue is my ears stick out at the top, not a lot but they're not neatly tucked it like some ears, so I don't want my ears to end up looking unbalanced or like they stick out even more.
I have a small baby face, like Barbara Palvin or Ester Exposito (Spanish actress), if that helps in any way, but their ears are all different to mine so I can't compare their piercings

Made one of my best decisions last year where I threw out like 80% of my pants and started wearing mainly maxi dresses and long flowy skirts.
As someone who’s bottom heavy with stumpy looking legs I’ve never felt more feminine while also being comfy as fuck. 10/10 recommend.
A conch piercing is the one just above your earlobe - the ring piercing here >>134452
, not the stud, is it not?
If you were talking about those piercings where the stud is, then I totally understand, those do end up looking trashy a lot of the time. If I wanted to have one, I'd probably just wear a fake.
A conch is not classy and subtle..
The only subtle and classy piercing is the traditional lobe piercing, depending on what you choose to wear in it.

Anyone know any shops that do graphic print tops with cute / japanese food or drink items, like pic related? Specific I know but I'd really like a few of these for some causal wearing and I'm sure there's some kind of small brand or shop that stocks this kind of thing..
aliexpress, yesstyle, taobao. always check the reviews for each item when you shop on chinese websites. the quality of each item varies greatly, so go after items with more reviews, especially ones that have photos of what they actually got lol. yesstyle is somewhat more expensive for what you get but has sales/promo codes you can look for. i found that exact shirt herehttps://www.yesstyle.com/en/women-t-shirts/list.html/bcc.14258_bpt.46#/bt=37&pn=2&l=1&sb=136&s=10&bcc=14258&bpt=46
just scroll down a bit, there might be some other shirts you like too. if you dont want to use yesstyle, try ali or taobao if you want to make a big order. they all sell the same stuff, usually. use terms like "kawaii fashion" or "japanese street fashion".
They are all over Aliexpress in Japanese/Korean fashion shops. Literally just search 'milk' in the women's t-shirts section and it will give you that shirt and tonnes of others.
What is it about milk motifs that is so cute anyway? I've had so many milk themed shirts over the years that it's become a running joke with my family, it seems like a prime choice for cutesy designs.

Where can I learn how to dress better? II vaguely understand some ideas regarding colour and silhouette but I know nothing about lines or how to dress nicely
I just wear a striped pink and white sweater and courdaroy trousers at home
I feel the same. My face has no colour whatsoever, it's nearly a bit greyish and that's not attractive at all. For example kpop idols do look cute, fresh and youthful but I as a white girl with harsher features look either downright sick or old, strict and boring.
I got a sunburn a couple days ago and the redness on my nose and cheeks immediately makes me appear younger and friendlier.
I sometimes use tanning lotion but it doesn't last long at all and matching foundation to my ever changing skin colour is difficult af. My clothes probably don't match me at all either.
Yes, exactly what I mean. You can try those gradual tanners that you apply like a moisturizer. They give you a slight glow and take time to develop, so there's no harsh difference between your skin tone at any point, and it won't fade in patches.
I've been going for runs in the sun recently and even with just a slight redness/tan I look so so much better. This isn't me hating my natural skin color. It's me objectively seeing that I look better a bit darker. It's like someone trying to convince me that a huge hook nose looks better than a straight nose because it's your natural nose. >>135680
Look up Alexandra's Girly Talk on YouTube. Her fashion videos are AMAZING. Her 2 most recent videos are particularly relevanthttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ljf4l6Nuh8Q&t=514shttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2xvmtMG1E8U
I think it makes a lot of sense. Explains why I gravitate towards bright colors (dark hair, light skin, bright red lips) as I'm "clear". My mom suits pastels and more muted colors as her skin is tan and hair is brown, she's more soft.
There are exceptions that I've noticed, but I find that this soft vs clear theory makes a lot more sense than undertones. In other undertone videos from fashion youtubers, I end up disagreeing with their choices.
no it's 100% accurate. Try it for yourself (wearing no make-up and in natural daylight) and you'll see either clear or soft looks better on you and the other one will make your eyebags and the texture and uneveness in your face stand out more.
If you don't see a difference you probably don't have an eye for it lol
Being clear means having saturated and distinct colors, think disney snow white.
Thing is there are levels of clear and "soft", i prefer to call it ashy. She is not perfectly clear imo, she has some ashiness to her skin, so some muted colors still look good on her.
Look at pictures of someone like Monica Belluci. She is much more obviously clear and looks better in jewel/bold colors. An obvious ashy example could be Cara Delevigne, she looks better in muted colors.

I'm ordering a long maxi dress from asos and don't know if I should go for size 6 or 8 based off of my measurements. I'm trying lose 5 pounds, so would that help me fit into a 6? Is it better to just get an 8? My measurements are
I attached the sizing guide. Thanks!
If you can always buy with the biggest part of your body in mind and then alter to fit the rest of your body.
If you lose 5 pounds more likely it will come your stomach so your hips will stay the same

Ok i know this is an old post but where can i find flowery flowy boho stuff that does not cost a kidney (Free People, Magnolia Pearl etc).
Im absolutely in love with that look but its gosh darn it hard to find a non sexualized (ie the floral dresses have plunging necklines) version in normal stores.
I just want to be a frumpy boho lady.
I've read the feedback and people complain that they get wrong sizes, colours and items with botched seams
It's rly cheap tho, i don't think you can fuck a croptop up too much, but if you want a more expensive/complicated piece you probably shouldnt risk it

i really want to have a petite body with an ass and im working out atm to achieve my goals. i also really want to incorporate 80's style into my daily fashion and im starting it out with geometric earrings.
plus im not really sure how to style my hair like that in upper right.
This seasonal soft/clear distinction is shitty and misleading because its defining characteristic is contrast, which is translated in the theory to saturation, which makes no damn sense.
Muted/clear, similar to warm/cool, is based on the intensity of the colour of your skin and not the contrast between your skin and hair. That is unrelated. People with high contrast colouring can wear dark or light accents to enhance the contrast of their oufits.
I find it very difficult to tell if someone is warm/cool or muted/clear based on photo/video, but I think the pure colours she is wearing are a little too saturated for her. The drab colours are far worse, though, so she is closer to clear than muted.

It is neither, but it's worded strangely in that article. I think they meant something like "Amy Winehouse wore […] ballet slippers, not pointe shoes or flats."
Real ballet slippers look like #1 (these were listed online as "soft split sole ballet shoes" online). Pointe shoes are like #2 and similar to ballet slippers, but with a hard tip so you can do pointe work. Ballet flats like #3 are fashion shoes with a hard sole styled to look like ballet shoes.

Yeah - also more "refined" looking things rather than cheap things you can get at stores like H&M.
Something like this store: https://www.gorjana.com/collections/rings
Gold plated jewelry (as on the website you linked) doesn't last long, especially rings since you're constantly using and washing your hands. If you're looking for something that lasts, go for gold filled or (preferably but costly) solid gold. Avoid gold plated and gold vermeil, the gold will rub off.
If you like silver, solid sterling silver has the best of both worlds: it lasts and affordable.

this was fun but made me realize how disjointed and lazy my style is. This is the wrong place to ask but should I get a perm if my hair is like the left girl and I want frizzy volume like the right?
also working on going full anachan because I'm built like a 12 year old skinnyfat boy and there's no where else to go
a regular perm will fry your hair and make you look like a grandma (speaking from experience, unfortunately. i had very thick and healthy untreated hair when i got it, too)
if there are any asian salons near you, i'd advise researching digital perms. they look more loose and natural, idk how damaging they are compared to a regular perm but i've been considering getting one for ages. i think the results will be more in line with your desired texture a la right photo.

Maybe you can try to lean more 80s than 90s? If you go for a more structured silhouette you can keep the simple pastels and retro vibe without it looking too "young." I can see 4th outfit working if the items are good quality, but I would really avoid things like the middle two.

I had some extra time and finally did it.
Anon, I’m the same age and dress like this everyday. I know lots of gurls are age who dress like this and/or have collections of plaid school girl skirts. Anytime you feel weird, watch an episode of “friends”. Jenifer Aniston was wearing identical outfits (but showing 20% more skin, in her early/mid 30s on the show.
A) the skirt- 2nd hand clothing stores/vintage stores/online (H&M and hottopic has 2 or 3 cute schoolgirl skirts you can grunge up with safety pins). Any Chinese ~kawaii~ clothing site will have them for cheap, some even come with suspenders attached.
B) thigh highs-H&M/target/walmart/forever 21 sell them year round
C) top- go for tighter is better and if you don’t want mid drift go for a longer turtleneck so you can tuck it into skirt
D) wear tiny shorts under skirt (trust me), you can cut them out of cheap leggings to save $$
E) use a knife/scissors, take on side (one blade of the scissors) and run it along the edge of the skirt, going the opposite way of the fabric, push it hard like you’re trying to scrape the edges of the fabric away. This will pick up thread and loosen it causing distressing. So they grungey distress looks more “authentic”.
F) do not over-accessorize or you’ll look tacky af and it’ll be too busy. At most, small earrings/thin subtle necklace/choker, maybe a watch and/or 1 spiked bracelet. You can mix and match with suspenders/thigh high sock garters. Can use a beret hat/beanie/wide brimmed modern hat (no bucket hat, no baseball cap). Less is more.
G) for added 90s grunge, you can add (no more than 3 small sized) patches/pins onto the bottom right/left side of the skirt.
H) try to get some vintage-y shoes to match. Like saddle shoes, flats, creepers, sperry type, or the women’s version of men’s dress shoes, or old school converse. For more grunge go for shoes with platforms like platform creepers, simple platform high heelish boots (no more than a few inches up from your ankle), army combat boots, platform goth boots (below knee), etc. (boots at h&m, old school shoes from vintage stores/lord&taylor/work casual shoe stores, goth boots/platform creepers from demontia).
I) don’t worry about being too old to wear this or that, we’re still young and can get away with it, no one can really tell the difference, so don’t worry you gonna look cute af.
/end long post
No, older people tell me I look young for my age but I kinda feel like that’s just part of getting older lol I know I feel like 16 year olds look like babies >>137414
Thanks a bunch for the encouragement and tips! I came across a clothing store recently, rockndoll or something, and they have the exact kind of stuff I’m looking for but it’s kind of pricey since idk what the quality will be. I’ll definitely keep an eye out for stuff at more moderately priced stores like H&M. Thanks again!

Stupid questions on the basics:
Is The curated closet any good? Any more starting out guides for fashion noobs?
I've decluttered my wardrobe and it's tiny now. I uploaded everything into Caldwell, got a bunch of different combos and unsurprisingly they all look the same (a nod to my basic monochrome choices). Fine with me but I feel like I'll be judged for always wearing the same clothes (they are mostly similar). Anyone here with a capsule wardrobe feel this way?

How do I figure out if gold or rose gold suits me more?
Gold suits me more than silver. I have pale skin but it's yellow toned.
Rose gold looks absolutely beautiful to me but it's less common and more difficult to pair with other items and jewelry so I want to be sure it'll suit me

So a while ago my mom gifted me one of those seasonal color analyses drapings lol, and it was determined that I'm a "summer season". Basically that means I should wear colors that are cool toned and muted, so I've been paying attention to it while shopping. But I find it really hard to find clothes that have these colors. Does anyone have tips for finding clothes in these specific colors? Especially the lighter colors.
File: 1588105269545.png (459.35 KB, 610x768, skin-undertones.png)
the pink tone in rose gold will make the green and yellow tones in your skin pop more but not to the same extent as silver. rose gold leans cooler than yellow gold but not as cool as silver. i would probably only recommend avoiding rose gold if your skin is especially cool-yellow or olive-toned, otherwise it's pretty neutral and flattering choice for most people.

No, it's just jewellery or whatever, it doesn't mean anything.
I also hate my sign - cancer. A fucking crab, lmao
I feel like virgo, cancer, taurus and libra have the shittiest signs. So boring. But at least you all have other qualities. Virgo is literally just "hurr perfectionist", nothing else is every mentioned.
I'll comfort myself in the fact that I was meant to be born a scorpio
Nah, I like being a Taurus. I'm a Taurus sun AND Taurus moon too. But at least I'm a Gemini rising I guess, so people see me as more fun and "complicated" than I really am.
I don't mind being boring, I know I am. I don't think there's anything wrong in being steady and dependable. I wasn't put on this earth to be someone's personal party clown/lolcow (no pun intended).

Agree, but this one isn't even obviously zodiac jewelry. It's just a classic gold pendant with a sign. The scorpio one is an engraved scorpion which doesn't immediately scream ZODIAC
I just like wearing solid color tops like black, with a gold necklace like this.
old post I know, but I love this style. Reminds me of Midsommar.
what kind of style is this? I need some key words
by the way, which do you think looks better? left (scorpio) or right (leo)?
all of them, for reference: https://reliquiacollective.com/collections/star-sign
File: 1588185820718.jpeg (5.78 KB, 325x325, shopping.jpeg)
The Scorpio one looks like one of those cheesy angel necklaces for old people from far away. Leo ftw
I do like the qualities of virgo, but I hate how every analysis is basically just "you're a perfectionist", and the symbolism is boring as shit. I always wished I was a leo or something.
I read something interesting about star signs - how they themselves don't affect your personality, but the time of your birth means you face different things at different times to other people which may affect it. E.g it's autumn when you're born, the weather is warm, celebrations come at a certain stage of your life etc.

I keep reading conflicting info about hair color and skintone…I read somewhere that if you have warm toned skin, you got to pick a cool toned hair color because that would emphasize the warmth of your complexion, but elsewhere I read that the two have to match in color temperature…so which one is it?
I am a pale olive with naturally warm toned dark brown hair and I'm curious what I'd look like with cool toned hair
I bought my bras from Uniqlo. I don't remember the size but I have the smallest underbust and boobs lol. The one I bought doesn't even have a clasp, so it's so comfortable. I hated wearing bras with a passion before buying these.

I want to do more research on how to dress better, particularly regarding the topic of contrast-when to use contrast, how to use it correctly and dressing around the body's already existing contrast (for example,my hair contrast my skin since my skin is light brown,but my hair is a very dark brown)
What are some resources to learn about contrast,aside from Alexandra'sgirlytalk?
Certain stores like to stick in certain color palettes, so when malls open back up, I would recommend hitting as many shops as possible and seeing which seem promising. Sometimes certain color palettes just aren't in though. I very cool skin and had trouble buying clothes for several years straight because everything seemed to be rust or mustard colored. >>137869
Being cool-yellow is suffering.>>137989
I think it's best to go with cool-cool or warm-warm.
This is missing a lot.
Neutral that isn't asian
That flow chart isn't helpful at all if you don't got those categories. Sure you can change them but I wouldn't what combination would fit each season.
Its decent start I guess
I tried taking the quiz but I didn't have answer to the last 3 lol. I have no idea who my sister season would be and I don't wear makeup so that was a big miss.
I'm probably better off just trying on clothes and figure it out from there

I love dresses that are yellow and white, it's such a fun combo. I'm cool-toned so it won't look great on me but burning retinas is my goal in life.

pick the palette that you gravitate towards.
File: 1588457286656.png (187.85 KB, 4181x1000, huesandundertones.png)
there are cool yellows you could look for. IMO, yellow being unflattering probably has more to do with the pink/red undertone of your skin than the coolness, which can be confusing. >>137989
olive skin tones can lean cool or warm as well, but if you're a warm-leaning olive, you probably read as fairly neutral and could probably get away with a cool-tone brown or blonde, despite them being cool. the only color family i'd suggest someone with your skintone to avoid is reds, because it'll emphasize the green undertone in your skin.
i made this chart in case anyone in the thread might find it useful.

I only wish I could have just one focused style, but there are just so many looks I love to wear; from dirty hippy, to cutesy, to the business casual love-child of Zara and Topshop. Due to my fashion ADD, everything in my closet ends up being some kind of a statement piece which can be tiring as heck and tends to make me look like I'm trying way too hard and overdressed.
Sucks, but there is nothing I hate more than basic distressed jeans and any form of t-shirt.

Streetwear and Techwear already have a proto-cyberpunk look and wearable technology is becoming more commonplace.

I love the cyberpunk look, I hope it becomes more mainstream. Especially the bolder makeup.
It's like 80s rebooted with better tech.

I'm a bit unsure what my body type/vertical body type is. I think I'm either a pear of a rectangle and either my legs are equal to my height or I have a long torso
Chest- 30.5 inches
Waist- 24.5 inches
Hips- 32 inches
Overall height- 61 inches (womanlet)
leg height- 29 inches
I've watched that video before but IMO, it doensn't make much sense using the chest measure, instead, it's more common to use the shoulder and hips ratio to compare, which for me is much more noticeable when it comes to the overall body shape.
But according to her video and your measures I would say rectangle, don't know about the leg and torso

Ripping out the seems wouldn't be too difficult. As long as you hem the armholes so they don't show the raw edges or fray it should be fine.

Cyclism of fashion 101 anon.
The first one that comes to mind is the classic little black dress. A pair of heels, trendy sneakers, ballet flats, ankle boots, cute sandals. Leather jackets and statement blazers can be a lot of fun, too, since you can wear them with a variety of outfits. Button ups, black/neutral colored trousers/blouses/chunky knit sweaters/pencil skirts/cardigans.
Make sure you have all your basics taken care of bc it makes picking outfits so much easier. There are a bunch of lists online describing must-have closet essentials, too.

When 2010's comes back into fashion.
But do you really want that to happen?
the same we thought about y2k
tbh I wouldn't wear it myself but I kind of like early to mid 10's alternative fashion, it'll be interesting to see when and in what new form that will come back in maybe a decade or so.
I'm also interested to see if boho will make a comeback this decade (I think that was in in late 00's/early 10's?) because it works well with the more environmently-aware movement.
The only thing I hope we can leave permanently in the 10's is instagram baddie fashion, gag.
(sorry for the crappy english, esl here.)

Are there any good fashion magazines that have more wearable looks? I'm not a fan of weird editorial or runway style outfits. I like things like pic related.
I use pinterest but I like magazines

What jeans color or shoe color should I wear with this sweater?
NTA but it's grey and white… nearly anything goes with it. It takes no thought or outside input at all to style a plain jumper with plain jeans.
If she wanted ideas on how to make it look more interesting or fashionable that would be one thing but she already knows she wants to wear jeans.

i've always heard ruffles but i'm not a fan. it just looks like you're trying to pad up your chest and seems insecure. and then there's straight across bikini tops that are more sporty but i think that's kind of boring and not very sexy, so i think something like this would do what ruffles are trying to do but more successfully. basically any bandeau that has curves/round shapes or some light ruching. it doesn't have to be strapless but this general shape. it looks feminine and cute without trying to overcompensate and you don't need cleavage. in fact, it would probably look weird on someone with big boobs.

here's another example with some straps. i would never look at this and immediately think about her boobs being small, but when the same model was wearing like string bikinis and underwire bikinis it kind of jumped out.
They can be overpriced for a small selection of bra sizes they have and usually between those bras there is a huge inconsistency. Eg 32 band being together than a 30 band.
That being said VS is fine if you know you proper size and not what the standard American size. Saying your a 32B when actually you are a 30D.

What are some 'essential' shoes for starting a wardrobE? I'm assuming that I'd need some white sneakers, but what about other types of shoes? Are Chelsea boots 'essentials'?
File: 1590019268584.jpg (103.21 KB, 564x705, 8478a071394f35fecc704c70496e1c…)
classic black ankle length doc martens are perfect fit all year for any occasion almost and any style
I would say there's no one true essential shoe, it depends on your personal style and needs. Chelsea boots aren't essential for everybody, but if it fits the aesthetic you're going for and you like them, then, yeah, it could be.
Just have a good pair of shoes for each possible occasion: a shoe to wear to fancy/formal events, a shoe you can walk all day in, a practical athletic/running shoe (if you work out), snow boots if you live somewhere snowy, rain boots if you live somewhere rainy, etc. What those exact pairs would be is different for every woman.
If you have to ask if x type of shoes are essential, then they´re probably not essential for you. Otherwise you would know and you wouldn´t have to ask.
People love to talk about wardrobe essentials or must-haves (lbd, blazer, black pumps, chelsea boots) but in my opinion you should take that with a grain of salt. Everyone's lifestyles and fashion styles are different and from that everyone has different essentials.
Unlike some replies I think there are essentials, just because you can pair them with anything or most things
>white and black trainers>tall boots (just below knee)>ankle boots
Usually in a black or dark gray color, and they'll match with anythig

Any clue what might she be wearing on her waist under the harness belts?
Think of essentials not as items but as categories. You need footwear for rain, snow, casual dresses and skirts, formal dresses and skirts, casual pants, formal pants, shorts, leggings, and any activities that require specific footwear. Chelsea boots often work in rain and with casual skirts and some styles of pants, but other footwear could also cover those categories. Sometimes a shoe can cover multiple categories. If you don't ever wear a type of item, you don't need footwear for it.

Pretty generic skinhead shoe, I should've said I meant the style, like the army boot style.
I know what you mean anon, just wear them anyways. Lots of non-racists wear Docs.
The most skin-heady thing imo is the look of them tucked into pants, but even if you like that style, them just wear them. It's not like they have swastikas on them or anything. It must be a regional thing if other anons are saying they've never heard of the correlation, which works in your favor actually. >>140461>get a dark tan

Im getting nostalgic for the 2010's tumblr grunge hipster chic look, i think it has been long enough that it stops feeling dated but nostalgic instead.
It also looks less teenager-y than egirl shit but still alternative.

Yess, I think never fully outgrew the effy style, baggy muscle tees and short-shorts are still my jam in the summer.
The basic make up is also way fresher than egirl and modern goth stuff, just black lined eyes (or unblended grungy purples and reds lol, the classic lime crime venus palette) and red ou natural shades lipstick and minimal foundation, it always seemed like a more put together version of the heroin chic look.

"More put together version of the heroin chic look" is brilliant and my personal style. A sober Courtney Love but make it sort of gothy. I love to wear things like fishnets and maybe heavy mascara and a dark lip but keep it mostly bare. I was once asked at a party (as i rolled a smoke) if i'd ever seen Skins, I said yeah and she told me she could tell kek. Idfk if it's embarrassing or obvious, she's my inspiration definitely

The Skins Question lol, such a classic, i always hmm no?
Im more of a freelice copycat (with a dash of modcloth), I have dark hair and eyes and it looks so good, even if im not a spoop, tbh as long as youre not egregiously overweight grungy looks are kind of flattering, most of the tumblr queens were either super average in weight or spoops.

Seconding this but on the more twee end of the hipster spectrum. Tbh I never outgrew peter pan collars and pretending I know about French + Russian lit. Ah, listening to indie rock, typing like a thesaurus, pretending to love tea… truly a lovely era..
It would be hard to replicate the look in your 20s-30s without looking like a cringey Modcloth rockabilly womanchild though
Maybe something more on the dark academia side? It has alot of the twee features but less girlish and quirky.
And tbh new girl and pushing daisies are great twee inspos, jess is supposed to be on her late 20s/early 30s and she never looks too childish.
ikr. it triggers
me seeing pretty girls pull off this style
Stop, the french and russian lit is so true. It's so lovely, i like looking at old early 2010s shit, the era is over but i like to read/watch it like it's today>>140513

I really wish my hair had more of a wave to it, like the two of the girls pictured, instead of it being pin-straight. I planned on getting a slight perm, but one of the anon's reply discouraged me, since they said it fried their hair.
Unfortunately, I don't think I could get one of those digital perms, since I live in bumfuck central Europe.
I tried to watch that movie, couldn't get through the god awful music scenes and stopped halfway through but the clothes were SO cute
I love preppy twee idgaf, I stay away from rockabilly looking stuff but you can pry peter pan collars from my cold dead hands. It was only ever a style for me in adulthood though so I didn't go through a pretentious indie phase.

You guys realize most of the girls that popularized this style aren't even that pretty, they were just relatively thin and into photography.
Kayla Hadlington looks like every dumpy british girl ever, yet she was one of the most popular alternative fashion bloggers back in 2012.
Also lol there's always some freaks here that expect every woman over 23 to wear pantsuits and pencil skirts, its 2020 no1curr about what you wear in your 20s.

This. I'm over mainstream fashion, alt fashion is a hell of a lot more forgiving of weird girls and it's already assumed you're an outlier so having a weird nose or whatever is fine and you're pretty as long as you know how to dress and in a lot of alt fashion, looking weird works in your favour. I'll be laughed at but I love toopoor's fashion at the moment, she's really leant into a soundcloud goth style, all over neck and face tats and it looks amazing on her. I remember crying when I was younger over just not being able to pull off what my peers were wearing but I'm finally done with making sure I'm falling in line with others where i live and I'm happy drawing inspiration from weird music videos and stuff like that. Feelsgoodman
Exactly This. If toopoor dressed "normal" she would straight up look inbred, the gothy soundthot shit compliments her weird face so well she almost looks attractive.
Dita von Teese looks like a kindergarden teacher without her gothabilly styling, etc
Also tbh why should women have to dress in a way that makes them as inconspicuous as possible, not even most workplaces give a shit about dyed hair anymore.

Depends on if your style is more soft or edgy because jeans and a t-shirt is pretty versatile, but I would recommend jewelry like simple/understated necklaces, earrings, or rings. Necklaces like pic related could work, but that many at a time is a little much for my taste

I can never make up my mind about a kind of style so I've always just looked either wild or basic. I've gotten fat so rn I'm mostly wearing basic stuff but I want to lose some weight and feel pretty again. But I never know what aesthetic to go for so I just mix and match and end up looking like I'm special needs.
I've tried the Kibbe thing but the questions were just confusing to me so it didn't really help much.
How do you choose your style/clothes?
I didn't even bother with the test tbh, and think other women dislike it as well. If you're still interested in learning your type, you could take a headless pic in leggings or a bikini then post on r/kibbe for a typing.
If you go between styles a lot, maybe try planning capsule wardrobes for each style with some basics you can use in general.

I just wear what I like anon and you should do the same kek. What do you like?
Preppy pieces in neutral tones look decent on anyone imo, if you don't wanna look into the kibbe shit, maybe just choose cuts that fit your body type. If you're not sure, maybe post your measurements here
The test sucks but you can learn to observe different qualities in others and yourself to learn how to work them. Things I like to watch for are:
- Are the bones prominent or delicate?
- Are the bones wide-set or narrow-set?
- Are the bones sharp or blunt? (this will depend on many factors like fat distribution and muscle density but you can get a general sense of someone being sharp or blunt when theyre around other people in particular)
- Where is the fat distribution concentrated?
- Silhouette re:vetrical line. Leggy (makes people look tall)? Thick upper thighs (this tends to "shorten" the way someone looks even if theyre average height)? Long torso? etc.
From there you can go towards looking at how different cuts of clothes work with individual features. Someone with short legs has different needs than someone with a short torso for instance. If you're super fleshy and curvy you wanna wear light fabrics that flow so it can conform to your curves instead of sitting on top like a sack. Conversely if you're pointy and bony you wanna tailor stuff with sturdier fabrics, you can handle more angles. If youre kinda wide but not in a curvy way, more muscular (usually also comes with narrow hips and height but doesn't have to), you might wanna look at clothes that drape in a more masculine way rather than the frilly feminine way. Things like that.

Does anyone have advice for theatrical romantic bodies with a large bust + short waist? Waist emphasis can look awkward on me since my waist is so short that it's only about 3" under my underbust, making me look stumpy and fatter than I actually am.

Real fucking embarrassing.
If you truly are as flat as you say, bralette are your best bet. Or order online where the demographic aimed at Asians.
Also if your nips are always perky and you feel comfortable. Just don't wear a bra at all. I sometimes where low support sports bras and those work well

I don't like the shape of that sole but the rest is cute.
These are not docs but just using the image to show what I mean, the soles look more sleek
Hey anon, I’ve got both the white and black jadon docs and both are lovely - the white pair is stunning and goes with almost every outfit I have. I wear a lot of cute grungy clothing if that helps any.
I think you’ll be happy no matter what you get though, docs are super!
I already have a pair of boots although they’re not really a classic design. I also like the design of the loafers ?
but I just bought a similar pair not docs though. I feel like a fancy and unorthodox pair might fit me best. >>143274

Talking about Doc martens.. recently I've been wanting a pair of Doc Marten ancle boots in a lighter, muted color like pic for example, but this particular boot (1460 pascal virginia) is sold out. Does anyone know if sold-out boots ever come back in stock or if they sell light, muted colors like this more regularly? Everything that's in stock right now is too bright or dark for my taste.
I think they will if it’s an actual solid colour, there was a pair I had my eye on and it was sold out for a while but then they came back in stock, keep an eye out on several websites.
They’re a really nice shade I hope you get them!

Hey gals, looking for some advice. So I'm super tall (6ft) skinny/no curves (i'm working on that with sqauts lmao) and a giraffe size neck. My style is pretty goth/punk and I mainly wear black, and i'm looking for some suggestions of just general outfits that won't exaggerate my freakish height.

is a levi's shirt in black that kinda cringe style? if so help me out to coordinate it at least decently. i can't return it.
Ntayrt but 1) She can want whatever kind of body she likes and it CAN look good. It shouldn't matter to you. That sounds like something a man would say.
2) You should really stop caring what other people think so much.
3) A levi's shirt is just a regular shirt with a logo. Do you mean a t-shirt or a shirt? What is your usual style?
I think it could look nice with an oversized jacket and tucked into a skater skirt. Or with an long-sleeve t-shirt for a contrasting colour and your prefer jeans style.

Anon you better at least appreciate Marie Antoinette boat pouf or I'll-
I can't remember which thread this was in but lately an anon complained about having broad shoulders and how 'it's like the least womanly thing ever' When other anons pointed to various times when broad shoulders were seen as attractive on women and shoulder padding was worn she outright refused to believe it. I mean the 80s wasn't that long ago.
But this is another level.

1770s fashion is peak aristocratic decadence and I fucking love it. Yes it was stinky, uncomfortable, and over the top, but at least the cut of the dresses was sexy and it looked fun… But there is absolutely nothing flattering about the 1630s.
I thought /fa/ was filled with skinny cryptkeeper gay / mentally ill troons white guys

I had a feelingI was going to get a contrary response like this… I get what you mean about fashion today being bland and lacking intricacies. That’s why so many women turn to vintage fashion, historical reenactment, cosplay, etc. as an escape. But if you look through the timeline of western fashion there are much prettier silhouettes (ie Tudor pic related) than the baroque Baron Harkonnen inflatable suit. Like girl I know the 2000s were tacky, but there’s been worse. Please love yourself anon.

I wish I had the aesthetic beauty of Tadzio. He's the reason I bought a sailor dress. I agree that 2010s fashion has been the worse so far. A lot of clothes either look too bland, too cheap or uncomfortablly sexual. IMO, 2000s fashion has some ironic charm to it now.
Kind of an aside but 80's silhouettes, even in terms of body shape, were so shoulder-focused with narrow hips. I actually quite like the athletic look of that era due to its slight androgyny, though the fashion was quite ugly imo.
Also, there's absolutely no reasoning with BDDfags and anachans. They're not interested in reality, that's not where their damage wants them to live.
I love these as well and also have a hard time finding boots that are 11 wide in this type of muted tone
I love purple and blue muted like this especially

Anons, I’d like some skirt advice. I’ve always had a more tomboyish style and never wore skirts because they used to make me feel self-conscious, especially because I’m on the taller side and am always paranoid that people can see my underwear (I know now that people wear safety shorts under their skirts to prevent this from happening).
Recently, I’ve really been liking the aesthetic of pic related and got a skirt for myself in a similar style. I’ve been wearing it around the house and my mom keeps making remarks that it’s too short and I shouldn’t wear it. I do feel like the length is pretty short, but you can’t see my underwear unless I bend over. I shrugged it off because I know short skirts are sort of part of the style, but now I’m wondering if it is too short? For anons who wear shorter skirts, when is a skirt too short that you know you should size up? I tried sizing up with the one skirt I bought and while it was longer, it was too baggy around my waist and made me look frumpy.

Hey anon! I went thriugh the same phase - from tomboy to 'girly'. I usually go with opaque pantyhose underneath. If its hot where you live, 'skorts' (like the one in pic) might be better. These are pretty popular in asia but im sure its accepted in where you live too.
File: 1594303158450.jpg (129.13 KB, 649x678, 20200709_155711.jpg)
Can anons recommend a nice dress store with dolly-like aeshethic? Pic related is one of the examples. I don't mind Lolita / Vintage stores, but their (lolita) types of dresses usually don't fit my bodytype, but for somewhat shapeless people.
Would be nice if the store was from USA / EU because fuck taxes.
Hi anon, I'm 5'10" and wear short dresses/skirts with platforms/heels every day (well… pre-COVID). Realistically, it's easier to get away with when you're thin: I haven't gotten any real comments about the length of my clothes, but my heavier friends have, and we've talked about the weird double-standard there. However, I am of the opinion that a skirt is too short only when you think it is. Just make sure you wear safety shorts underneath to avoid accidents, just as you said you do.
During the winter months I also wear pantyhose like >>143612
suggested– but I only wear black clothes so my pantyhose are also black. They can be pretty hot in the summer so I wouldn't recommend that.
TL;DR: wear whatever makes you comfortable. Fuck the haters. There's no way your skirt is too short unless your vulva is hanging out, kek.
I used to wear mini mini skirts- often they just barely covered the butt and I definitely couldn't bend over without showing my underwear/safety shorts. (Any longer than that and I thought I looked dumpy and short legged in them) In hindsight I kind of regret this. I don't think it was too short for others (as long as I wasn't bending) but it was too short for my personal comfort. I could never do dumb everyday movements like reaching for my bag on the ground, bending over to pick something that I dropped, tying my shoes or even crossing my leggs without worrying about my butt/safety shorts showing.
Never got any comments though. I think you should take your mom's opinion with a grain of salt, she's from a different generation where different skirt lengths were appropriate and you're (I assume) a young woman, so you can pretty much wear anything you want. If you want to wear the style in pic related and you're willing to sacrifice some personal comfort, do it. It's really pretty and not that kind of too short.
From 16 to 20ish year old, I only wore skirts, everyday, no matter the weather. Personally I would check in the mirror, how the skirt falls when you sit, bend, kneel down etc and what is visable. If its like the one in the picture your probably fine though.
When I bike or walk and the model is flowy I always wear a tight cheap H&M skirt underneat to not have to re adjust the skirt all the time, and just take it off once i get indoors.
Depending on the material a lot of skirts become a little bit looser over time, so i wouldnt size up.
If your uncomfortable about sitting with the skirt in public maybe just drape your coat a little over your over it, maybe you can find some biker shorts that are comfy, or wear thights.

I’m at a point now where I want to start embracing all of the tacky ugly shit that I absolutely love. Bring prints and patterns, gigantic graphic t-shirts with cartoon characters, unironic pleated skirts and thigh highs. I want to embrace all of the tacky shit I was too afraid to wear in High School. I used to be such a conformist basic bitch with only wore PINK and Kohl’s and I almost feel like part of me is going to overcompensate for awhile to return to equilibrium. I always wanted to wear this kind of stuff but was too afraid but I think I’m ready now.
Does anyone have any smaller brands that are like Lazy Oaf or Big Bud Press? Those are the two main ones I like but I want to expand my horizons.

Not sure what your measurements are but my problem is similar. What I've found is that A line dresses with fitted waists and shirred backs/some sort of stretch are my friend. Sweaters and turtlenecks can look good but will definitely exaggerate your chest even more. It might sound anti intuitive, but lower necklines tend to be better than high ones, as long as they don't show too much cleavage. High necklines tend to make your chest seem even larger and you'll get the opposite result from what you want.
Longer (right above the knee or lower) dresses with fitted waists might seem to veer into the 50's style too much for your taste, but there's quite a bit of variety. Since you have a small frame you don't need to worry about looking too bulky when adding some volume to your hips to compensate for the bust. Dresses (as long as they fit comfortably) are also gonna be much better than skirts with tops. Somehow those always tend to attract attention to the chest, especially with high waisted skirts.

Anons please help. I’m really short and managed to snag a nice skirt like pic related at a clothes swap. I think it’s cute but I don’t know how to style it or if it would even look good on a short frame. What do you wear with it or is it worth just donating it?

I have always wanted to dress like a suspiciously homoerotic, but confirmed straight by directors, snarky movie villain but making this collage made me realize I'm just a basic bitch.
Also, does any anon here use cg method? I've been doing it for a year and I feel like my hair is still somewhat a mess. On good days it has the definition of lower pictures but I can't keep it from straightening. I'm gonna try flaxseed gel tomorrow, fingers crossed it will be a game changer.
yeah I follow cG. It's been great for reducing the dryness but I can't seem to get nice, defined curls. They either look like shit and they straighten really fast even with gel or mousse. I have wavy hair when it's left alone though, so maybe I'm just not "meant" to do all the scrunching and s2c. Let me know how the flaxseed gel goes!>>144327

How's brandy melville's clothing? I can fit in it and I like the style, but I was wondering about the quality of it
File: 1595147923534.gif (1019.14 KB, 540x912, IMG_9217.GIF)
What are some brands that have designs and pricing similar to Brandy Melville, but are of higher quality?
It's likely that you are just feeling self concious about your body and lack confidence.
You somehow have likely convinced yourself that you are not good enough to stand out but at the same time you don't want to be invisible.
I think this is a problem that a lot of women have when it comes to fashion, which is why so many women end up wearing nothing but skinny jeans or leggings with black or white t-shirts although they would like to get a bit more adventurous.
I would suggest slowly coming out of your comfort zone.
For me wearing anything other than black leggings and a loose top was really scary for a long time.
I started slowly. I went out and bought a pair of high waisted shorts, then I purchased my first crop top. I was loose fitting and had a tie around the waist. I'm probably bigger than you and a bit apple shaped.
Then I got a sewing machine and started buying high waisted jeans and tailoring them because they never fit me off the rack. I have moved on from loose shirts all the time and I now wear crop tops.
If I can do it so can you.
Brandy Melville is so generic and overpriced. I love that aesthetic but it's not special, it's basic as fuck.
You can literally find that style of clothing in any fashion forward women's clotheing store, Zara, H&M, Charlotte Russe, Forever 21, Asos ect.
Brandy is a great example of how advertising makes the brand. It's exclusive, mean girl image is what makes people throw their money away. The style is not unique at all.
The idea of low rise ever returning gives me a serious anxiety attack. I remember how godly uncomfortable they were and how they just wouldn't stay up no matter what I did or what size I wore. They sat right near my bladder which is sensitive as it is and I remember being oh so cold every winter. They would literally give you trench foot and cold kidneys.
Where I currently live in Eastern Europe I see middle aged women predominantly wearing low rise jeans and they never really gave them up. It gives them the most awful muffin top and although they pull their shirt all the way down to their hips you can still see the fat bulging over their waistband. It's not a fortunate look and I can't imagine they are as comfortable as they could be. Either that or they are extremely fit and they wear low rise like Brittany spears did in the early 00s. I'm not a fan of that look either, it makes them look like they are clinging to their youth and just can't let go of a trend that died out forever ago.

Anyone know any fashion bloggers who lean more androgynous, or at least wear only pants? I'm a flamboyant gamine on the shorter side who wants to find more style inspo. And before you ask, I already reverse-image searched this pic; it led to a very femme singer who doesn't actually dress like this on the reg.
I'd like to know too. It's the only style that kind of fits me.
If you have instagram you could try looking through the tomboy tag? I remember there being some okay to follow but that was also a few years ago
I quite like Stradivarius's clothes, not sure about the stuff on their website but in the store they have really nice, high quality clothes. Their jeans are the only ones I like, and I've been wearing their simple tops for years.
Not sure where their clothes are made, I wasn't able to find that out but perhaps Spain.
Uniqlo also has good quality clothes albeit a bit too simple and they're still made in Bangladesh

I love the look of go-go boots but I'm not sure if I could pull them off since they're outdated/not trendy anymore. Does that matter at all or should I got for it?
God Paris must be a thrifter's dream.
I don't know which country anon is in but there are also so many websites that sell vintage clothing. I heard depop is good.
If you live in Northern Europe all you get is granny clothes in size 7XL unfortunately
Online thrifting is really good, depop and various instagram sellers are good for trendier stuff.
I sympathize with this. Something that helped me to develop personal style was delving into fashion history. This might seem overzealous, but I learnt a lot about how cultural movements influence fashion trends, the use of fabrics and textiles as they relate to particular activities, why silhouettes evolve over time, and the influence of trends from the past on contemporary fashion. Basically, learning that there is a theory behind getting dressed made me feel like I could put together much more thoughtful outfits and actually take pleasure in the art of dressing instead of just feeling anxious and overwhelmed.
Constructing a wardrobe that you enjoy takes significant amounts of time and experimentation. It can certainly help to talk to someone that knows a lot about clothes in the process. If you can reflect on what you think looks good and why alongside the silhouette you think is flattering for your body then that's a good start too. I hope that made sense…best of luck anon
I was the same as you, I never bought any of my own clothes until I went to college, I just wore tshirts and jeans and that's it. Then I started shopping at thrift stores a lot, if you can find a cheap store or if they have big discounts like the ones near me, you can get a lot of different clothes for cheap. Just buy whatever you like and wear it for a bit and see what clothes you feel good in.
Also what helped me was browsing fashion magazines, they really sparked a love for fashion in me and helped me realize what sort of clothes I like, and what I don't like. If you know what you like, it's easier to find it

This was fun to put together! I thought it would be more fun to use the bottom right square for inspiration…
I enjoy a good baggy androgynous silhouette but I really love to wear skirts <3 I'm very inspired by the early 2000s, jfashion, 70s punk, and FRUiTS magazine.
I know I'm replying to an old post, but I recently downloaded depop and holy fuck the majority of the stuff on the featured page is garbage. It's literally all grandma shirts and fugly denim shorts being sold for 70 bucks a pop but people eat that shit up because they throw a warm toned filter over it and call it y2k fashion.
And speaking of tags, it's extremely difficult to find a specific style or brand because people will tag anything as anything. I literally saw a disney princess children's bag tagged as "cottagecore" "brandy melville" "grunge" and "darkacadamia" among 500 other unrelated tags. I fucking hate depop but I've found a couple of gems.

i have light olive skin and long dark brown hair with loose waves. light colors like pastels have never looked nice on me (i cringe looking back at my kawaii phase in high school, i looked like absolute shit), dark colors look nice on me.
body type is kinda like pic related. i'm not super into very feminine clothes, i like dresses alright, but frills and particularly "girly" elements look weird on me. at least i think they do

A lot of the current/trendy fashion would suit your body. High-waisted anything is flattering to thicc hips/thighs with a smaller waist. Dresses that cinch around or emphasize the waist will look nice, same with tops.
If you want to avoid looking childish in general, don't wear anything that has a huge ugly name brand plastered on it, avoid most t-shirts (especially graphic t's), look for materials that are high quality and flattering rather than thin/cheap, make sure your clothes fit your body (work with a tailor if needed), implement interesting prints in moderation, make sure your clothes aren't wrinkly and use simple, pretty accessories to add appeal.

I'm thinking slightly androgynous clothes- no frills or cutesty patterns but clean lines and looser fits? In my opinion this is a good look on less shapely/curvy woman, but you'd have to try it for yourself to see how it looks.

Try to wear blm and gay rights patches whenever you can even if it feels pandering.
Whenever I meet a skinhead I absolutely assume they're racist until I see some kind of pin or patch that tells me otherwise and many people I know do the same. I spend the first minutes scanning them for clues, just spell it out easy for us please.

This is so stupid. Encouraging people to wear pins or patches to prove they don't hold xyz political opinion only supports the idea that choice of clothing style and political opinions are inseperably and absolutely always connected- which seems the undesirable outcome to me.>>147246

Even skinanon is aware that this problem presents in her particular fashion and has a good attitude towards it, nobody is forcing her to do anything. It's no different to accepting that normal people see sweet lolita as a sex thing, and goths as Satanists.
Clothes give impressions whether it's desirable to you or not.
