one-pieces (dresses, jumpsuits) are super low effort, throw on a pair of shoes, a bag, maybe some jewelry if you feel like it and bam, a nice outfit. Or you could go super basic with a nice pair of fitting jeans and a white t-shirt or blouse. Throw on some sneakers, maybe a leather jacket and you're done: Requires no thought or effort but it's still an outfit that looks good on everyone. Just make sure you pick pieces that fit you really well.

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

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.

No. 125889

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.

How do I dress for my figure?

I'm an underweight stick figure with no curves, people used to make fun of me for not having a boobs or ass at all and sadly at 23 I'm still flat everywhere. I also have a weird curved back which makes my tummy look fat. I also have weird bony x legs, the type of x legs that normally happens when you're overweight, and my knee caps are sticking out a lot. I hate my face as well but this is about fashion so I'll leave those details behind, so there's nothing I really want to draw attention to, every part of my body looks strange.

No. 127346

>>127344
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.

Speaking of ageplay vibes, I feel like my style might be inappropriate for my age (20). I'm really into sanrio stuff and hime gyaru/pink frilly clothes in general.

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.

I've ordered a few tops and dresses from them before and have mostly had no problem. They do run small because it's asian sizing, so if you're larger it might not fit you.

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

Are there rules as far as fashion goes, or is it generally subjective? So many of you speak in-depth about color theory, pattern-matching, which clothes best suit certain body types, etc.

I personally am clueless about all of the above. Luckily, I always receive compliments on my outfits; however, I feel like a fraud and worry that I might look ridiculous to those who are actually knowledgeable about fashion. How does one learn? I’d like to familiarize myself with the names of various types of garments/collars/sleeves, as well.

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.

For dressing decently, I think you just need a basic eye for aesthetics. Doesn't even have to be fashion specific imo, art and graphic design skills (like balance and colour coordination) seem really transferable to me . But I'm sure more knowledgeable people are next level. Like, someone with a lot of technical knowledge about sewing and fabric will be able to choose higher quality clothes, someone who is very familiar with designers and fashion history will have more cohesive looks if they're going for a certain style or era, someone who spends a lot of time looking for inspiration will have broader tastes and be more willing to try new things, etc.

I think the style is just UK 80s casual womenswear tbh. Though Diana seemed to like pairing tailored pieces (like the green jacket and the riding style boots) with things like jeans and oversized sweaters. She mostly wore oversized clothing to hide her eating disorder, sadly, but she wore it well. You might want to look into some british 60s styles too, as that is kinda similar to the picture of her in the cardigan/blouse. I can't recommend any brands, but I'd maybe look into vintage clothing stores IRL or online and see if you can find some matching pieces similar to what Di is wearing.

What are peoples opinions on a pastel wardrobe? I've noticed that the vast majority of my clothing is pastels, or light pinks / creams. The style of the clothing pieces themselves tend to be pretty basic, nothing quite detailed with frills or lace, but I'm starting to realise these colours are seen as childish? I work in a company that allows for casual dressing so I'll wear white/light wash jeans and a pastel top/shoes and jacket almost daily. I guess I'm wondering if this comes off as overly girly? And then part of me thinks, well fuck it there's nothing wrong with girly fashion. But I don't necessarily want to give off a young vibe at work in case I'm not taken as seriously. The other girls in the office tend to wear work dresses or dark jeans and a shirt/blouse…but that's not my style at all.

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”).

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?

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.

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)

Can anyone recommend a book on the history of fashion? I’m looking for one that mainly focuses on how clothing in general has changed throughout the centuries, as well as the inspiration behind certain styles and trends.

It’d be neat to find one on the history of fashion subcultures in Japan, as well. I’ve recently been getting into it, and there is SO much to learn.

I’m aware that I could look all of this information up on Google, but I’d much prefer to have it all laid out in book form.

I have a size 0-2 waist and size 6-8 hips and cannot find proper fitting jeans for the life of me. I hate the look of skinny jeans and want the more “baggy” look but nothing is working out.

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'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:

clothing:
sweaters
maxi dresses
pinafore dresses
a-line skirts
broderie dresses/blouses
prarie dresses
frills

accesoires:
leather belts
berets
hair hows
cutish animal jewelry
straw bags and hats

shoes:
block heels
ballet flats
mary-jane shoes

patterns: plaid, tartan, gingham, houndstooth, (dark) florals, cute-ish animal patters

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.

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.

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 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.

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.

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 love the lolita style in theory, but not really in practice (expensive clothes, most likely cannot wear it everyday if you are working, complicated to put on thanks to all the lacing).
What I love about it the most is how feminine, cute and princessy it is. I am wondering if there is any way of channeling those qualities with clothes that are not necessarily lolita? I do not mean the 'wear clothes from a thrift store and claim it's lolita because you have an a-line skirt' thing obviously.
Do you guys have any style inspiration?

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.

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.

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

oh, you're right. doesn't change it much for me though. looks slightly less dumb but still out of place? top and bottom make sense to me just viscerally (though i still don't find them necessarily 'classy'), but the middle gives me anxiety. like it's going to fall off (obviously i know it isn't). i don't think i've ever looked at a piercing and thought 'classy', though, is my point. it's fine, it's just not 'classy' to me. piercings can certainly be cute and give off a certain vibe, but i rarely have seen people associate them with class.

Where I live a lot of malls are shuttering for the pandemic, and a lot of the fast fashion stores (like forever21) were on their way out anyway. I think this is profoundly different than both of those instances because you physically can't go shopping, and the need to shop online is so greatly decreased because bars/clubs are closed, and concerts and festivals are postponed. I know some people end up shopping online out of boredom, but without girls going to the mall to buy outfits for a night out/festival wear for the festival season, and not even having to buy like, cheap blazers and other "first internship" professional clothes for the time being, the need for clothes has greatly decreased.

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.

I have a rather strong build, I'm not overweight, I'm muscular so I have broad-ish shoulder and hips, but eventhough I have a somewhat slim waist I still look square and my steps are heavy. What kind of feminine clothes can I weat not to look like a caricature of a woman ?
I especially struggle with shoes. I always wear dr martens, I'd love to wear heels but they make my feet look disproportionnaly small. Also I'm already tall, but that wouldn't stop me from wearing heels.
I'd appreciate any help.

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.

No. 135696

>>135683
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.

Anyone else a bit skeptical about the soft vs clear theory? Although her other theories seem reasonable, I'm not sure about this one. This is probably prefencial but I don't think she looks particularly better with bright, 'clear' colours and find them a bit garish and overly-saturated. Am I in the minority who thinks this?

No. 135808

>>135807
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. 135840

>>135807
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.

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.

I don't have super straight hair, it has a tiny bit of a wave so this might work differently for you, but what I do is take bits of my layers and lightly twist them into a shape when it's wet, then I use the diffuser to focus on each twist and manipulate the hair into the shape I want on a low speed mid heat setting.

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.

Gold plated jewelry (as on the website you linked) doesn't last long, especially rings since you're constantly using and washing your hands.

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 want to start maturing my wardrobe, but I can't afford to rebuy or toss out much clothing right now, so being wise with what I invest in atm is important to me.

Hi, I’m a different anon but I’d definitely look at the decades you like (seems like you like a lot of y2k-ish stuff?) and see what adults were wearing then. Like, those tank tops could definitely look cute with a knee-length denim skirt and sandals with a slight platform & thick strap in a neutral color, likewise the pants would look cute with a neutral tight T-shirt. I don’t think the middle outfit is completely unsalvageable, maybe if you wore the big T-shirt dress with grey leggings, boots and an oversized denim jacket it would look cute and 80s. Stick to one statement piece at a time!

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.

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.

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.

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.

Do you guys think with the release of media like DUNE and Cyberpunk 2077 the style will become more popular and not just something that exists in science fiction?

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.

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.

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.

Calvin Klein has been good for me. I like their bras and they go on sale a lot. They also make sporty and girly styles, so you've got style options too. You probably already know this, but stay the fuck away from Victoria's Secret/Pink. Aerie is just as trash as they are. I think the main reason for their popularity is how body positive they are, which is great for the younger girls they're targeting, but having a positive message won't save your shitty product.

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.

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.

I don't get the obsession with fashion 'essentials' and 'basics' tbh. I guess it's fair enough if someone needs help getting their wardrobe started or just don't care and want a straightforward guide to looking decent but it seems like you'd end up wasting money on things you don't truly want. It makes more sense to try develop your own taste before buying a list of things the internet told you to. Is it really that hard to pay attention to clothes to figure out what you think looks good? I'm not particularly stylish but I still know what I like or dislike when I see it or try it on, and I could go the rest of my life without wearing most commonly recommended 'essentials'.

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.

Ex-skin (a trad SHARP not an american bonehead just to clarify) here. You wont look like a skinhead unless you also dress like one. If really don't want to step anywhere near skin territory - if you wear them with jeans and a shirt, don't roll up the hems into cuffs, either wear them straight, tuck them in or wear something else instead. If you wear a shirt, don't tuck it into your jeans and avoid polo shirts. It's pretty easy to avoid dressing in that way tbh. Otherwise, wear whatever the hell you want and stop worrying about it. Now if you told me you wanted to wear them with an oversized bomber jacket, bleachers and a shitty nazi band tee I'd say you have a lot to be worried about. Buy them Docs, girl!

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.
