Do any of you have a dream wedding outfit/a peg for it? I'm nowhere close to getting married but I still enjoy looking at bridal collections for fun/daydreaming. Personally I'd like something minimalist and sleek, and pants instead of a skirt. Would love to see others' looks.

I don’t even have a boyfriend but I really love wedding dresses, they’re beautiful. These are the ones I’ve liked the most so far, I can’t really decide on which one i would wear, but i guess i got a silhouette i like.

I love the idea of pants instead of a skirt/dress. I always like those "unconventional" wedding looks.
For me I like those puffy sleeve, flowy kinda lace or mesh dresses? Not sure what to call em. I just think they look delicate. Pretty comfortable and simple.

does anyone know where to find oversized trousers that are also tapered at the ankle? i love the look in pic related and seen similar silhouettes in menswear, but idk where i would get the right kind of pants. ive got an oversized pair of trousers already, but they are straight leg so rolling them at the bottom creates really wide & ugly cuffs

I like this types of trousers too anon. I found a pair I personally really like and though you might be interested to. The waist band I'm unsure on but I'd probably wear a top that covers it anyway. https://lucyandyak.com/products/alexa-in-midnight-black-high-waisted-trousers?variant=30993036607591

I'm short (158 cm) and chubby (67 kg, still losing tho, goal weight is 55 kg), top heavy with a relatively short torso, not very defined waist and narrow hips. (A bit like Vicky Shingles but my legs aren't as chunky.) I think my boobs and legs are probably my best asset. What kinds of clothes would you recommend for someone with this kind of build? I don't want to draw attention to my flat-ish butt, short torso and big belly.
This style is very 80s/early 90s. It should be easy to find a pair in a vintage or secondhand clothing store, particularly if you go to the men's section. I have been doing this for years, I just get them tailored at the waist to fit my frame. Obviously most of the men's style trousers that are manufactured for women today are made of cheap, thin fabric, imo this style looks better when it's made with a higher quality material. Also >>154858
is right, you can create that balloon shape very easily with this technique. I think it's called a pin roll

I'm tired of wearing skinny jeans/skinny jeggings. I like the look of looser styles now but I'm so confused by all the types - mom, boyfriend, straight, bootcut, cigarette and so on. I like these kind, any kind anons know what they're called?
Those are straight but I think I can describe them for you
Straight: straight leg, loose, usually hip sitting but can be on waist, might have good pockets
Mom: always at waist, hip hugging that tapers to usually a more loose ankle rolled up, usually have amazing pocket space
Cigarette: straight cut that's not as loose as straight, hip or waist
Boyfriend: either another term for straight or shops will sell an even baggier torn version of straight
Bootcut: basically cowboy pants that suck in at the top then taper out starting at the knee, the taper can be very baggy

When other women pull of a 3 or 4 inch heel with a day to day ensemble I think yeah, you look great, so put together.
When I do the same I feel like people look at me as if I'm doing too much lol. That being said, I live in a city where there is a lot of conservativism and uniformity in the way people dress because it's full of white collar beaurocrats and college kids. Can't wait to move to a metropolitan city where there a more people who like to dress up and be daring.
Although I wear almost exclusively boots, unisex or men's work shoes will always be tough. I got a pair of monkey boots from Amazon for $40. You can get safety sneakers for construction now and they're cheap.
If you want slightly more fancy sneakers then Adidas is pretty long lasting in my experience.

I like the idea of wearing a hat to complete an outfit, but I feel like I would look retarded wearing a hat
I've never thought hats were that difficult to pull off unless they're particularly fancy, like why would you have to be hot to wear a beret? I think as long as your outfit matches the 'vibe' of the hat it isn't hard to look decent.
My problem with berets is trying to pick an angle and where it sits, it's not intuitive at all. And hats in general can be kind of uncomfortable and give me a headache no matter how cute it looks.
Love these fisherman caps, really want one in leather. Anybody can be a hat person if the hat goes with the outfit. It's a rather recent phenomenon in history that not
wearing a hat was normalized, like in the 1960s. Ensemble dressing is an art that's been kind of swept aside and minimized in contemporary society
Barefoot shoes are inherently goofy looking because they're so wide at the end. Pic related are 185$ and they're one of Vivobarefoot's most normal looking shoes.
Embrace the clownish aspect or wear regular shoes.

Can short (I'm 5'0) girls pull off midi and longer length skirts/dresses or would they just look silly on me because of my height?

I generally think 3/4 length (hit around mid calf like your pic) skirts are unflattering on shorter women because they only emphasize the lack of height and appear to cut off the body at an awkward level. But I think anyone can wear full length skirts because they maintain proper visual proportions (lower body consisting of unbroken line from waist or hip to ankle).
If you want to do something similar I would go with a mini or knee length skirt that won’t further appear to shorten the legs.

I've been actually trying to make a capsule wardrobe into something like this. So far I've been planning some 'basics'and I would like others input.
-white knee socks
-black tights (already have)
-white collared long-sleeved shirts made of natural fibres
-red sweater and cardigan
-yellow sweater (already have)
I plan to add some dresses, patterned collared shirts, and different coloured tights as statement pieces or pieces that help expand my wardrobe. I plan to build this over the course of years so that I don't just end up buying myself a new style I don't like
Maybe add in some hats and scarves to accessorize/differentiate outfits? If you live in a cold climate.
Jewelry and little details also make a difference, imo. Just embroidering on a collar or wearing brooches can transform an outfit into something more unique.

Good luck on hunting for your capsule wardrobe anon! I love the twee fashion style and I've been building a capsule wardrobe for the style as well.
For some tips I'd recommend getting some loafers or Mary Jane's for footwear preferably in brown. And for a coat get one in a neutral color like brown or beige. I think peacoats and duffle coats best fit the aesthetic.
Leg warmers are so cute. Luckily I do the two main forms of exercise where they are normal (ballet and skating) and can wear them all the time.
I used to be more into dressing cute while exercising, like wearing skirts and tights but I've gotten lazier over time and just wear normal leggings with whatever tank top or tshirt suits the weather. >>156383
Pennyloafers and Mary Janes are the best. You know a shoe is gonna be comfy and durable when it's commonly used for school shoes, they're so sensible.

Any recommendations on where to find a corset top similar to pic rel, but with more voluminous short puff sleeves? I want something nice and tight in the bodice, but with big structured puffs.

Does anyone else think vintage fashion is going to make a HUGE comback after quarantine and the whole corona stuff? Costume-tubers like rachel maksy and bernadette banner got immensly popular and trends like cottagecore also very much point towards old-timey styles, plus they are incredibly flattering for average women differently from the y2k inspired stuff that only flatters anachans.
No, I think it'll remain a niche. I could be wrong but I just think don't think the average woman would actually want to dress like that, but maybe I'm biased because I think most vintage fashion is hideous. Youtubers like Bernadette are popular because they're unusual and different, people gawk at them but don't want to dress like them. And trends have never relied on being flattering.
Just my thoughts tho.
Happened to me, I'm sick of fast fashion, like historical clothing and got into vintage a bit.
As the pandemic is making us consume less fashion for events it might make more women question their choices.
Eh hard disagree, most women I know do like vintage fashion but don't have the guts to wear it due to fear of being seen as too attention-seeking or grandma-ish.
Thats also the majority of the people who comment on Rachel's and Bernadette's videos "oh i think vintage fashion is so beautiful but im too scared to wear it in public! living vicarously thru u xoxo".

Maybe something ruffly like in your pic or a pussybow blouse? You can go for somewhat sheer fabrics like chiffon since you have to wear a vest. I think that would contrast nicely with the suit.
I also think shiny shoes could look cool for the same reason (contrast). Something like pic rel seems like it would be comfy enough to wear for work. Low heeled close toed shoes like boots or >>157146
look really flattering with looser long pants imo, but may not be comfortable enough if you have to spend time on your feet.>>157145>>157146

I don't live in a very cold place but I'm wearing a vest right now because it's cold, so I recommend a vest too, it's really warming me up; the material is thin but the vest is very tight which makes it so warm. You don't have to get one of those ugly vests, there are many stylish ones too. But definitely get a very tight one because it's so much warmer that way. And watch out that you don't get one that doesn't cover the lower back!
Yeah! Disclaimer: I haven't lived there but a few of my friends have lived in Vancouver before moving east for school and/or work. From their stories, it won't be cold during winter and it won't snow very much, if at all. It however gets very rainy so you will want to carry an umbrella and/or wear a raincoat there. One of my friends described Vancouver winter as a wet cold: you're first ok with the temperature but the longer you stay out, the colder you get. Despite that, I think it'd be good to have a winter parka in case it gets too cold or if you plan on visiting different provinces out east or to go skiing.
Where I live gets fairly cold (-10 celc or so is the average day) and it snows a lot. For really cold days, I have a long down parka so that I don't die. It won't get as cold as, say Montreal or Edmonton, but I'm always cold.
You already got good replies, but if you’re anywhere between Alberta and Quebec, you need a down jacket because it gets to -40 (F/C) some nights (and the not so rare day). Fleece tights or leggings (or thermals if you’re into that) for under jeans, and make sure all your skin is covered.
If it’s a west coast or maritime province though, just be ready for assloads of snow on the east, and impossible amounts of rain on the west.

Bought this beret but can't figure out how to wear it. It keeps looking really bumpy and strange. Suggestions?
What kind of material is it made of?
You might be able to stretch & set it: get it wet in warm soapy water (observe the wash tag though), stretch it over a plate so the hole is centered nicely, and let air dry, then steam it with a steam iron if it can take the heat. That should at least straighten it out a bit.

For anons who care about the longevity of their clothes, where do you guys shop that isn't like $100+ per garment? I want to buy better made clothes (like 100% cotton, wool, denim, etc) without paying out the ass. Picrel is my 'style' which is pretty basic (I like having a capsule wardrobe so I can just assemble outfits without any issues).
Before someone suggests thrifting, I have had literally zero luck doing that. My thrift shops are always full of the same brands typically worn by older people (sidenote: wtf is Coldwater Creek and why is it everywhere in Goodwill) and those clothes aren't particularly good quality either.
The beloved people’s princess! This dress >>158153
is iconic as it is what she wore when Prince Charles’ affair was made public. It’s known as the revenge dress. I love her. She is treasured here still
When fashion cycles it tends to come back with the current consumer market in mind.
Y2k fashion has made a comeback but as you can see it's far more inclusive of different bodies than it was back in the day. Low rise pants are an option again but they are not the only pants that are in style for example. With even more people being overweight and older women taking more of an interest in current trends than they did back then the consumer market has had to adjust. It's no longer only slim, young women taking an interest in looking trendy and wanting to feel attractive. The internet and websites such as Instagram are reaching all women and making women from all walks of life want to take part. What used to be known as 'youth fashion' and what was once meant only for the young and thin has expanded to a much wider market.
So when 2010s fashion does cycle around again it will be in line with the current consumer market.
Right now we are starting a sustainability movement when it comes to fashion, along with body inclusivity. This has come at a time where we are going to enter a very possible global recession. More and more people are seeing the impact that fast fashion is having on the people who work in sweatshops and produce these clothes and have to deal with the landfill when we throw them away. I think we are going to see more brands produce sustainably and less reckless buying. We are also going to see far more people swapping clothing and wearing used clothing. With the current global crisis lots of fast brands are actually falling into complete bankruptcy. I think sustainable fashion will only expand as the next fashion cycle comes around.
Anon, look at sweaters and basics from a newish brand called Quince, can also look into Everlane if you don't have issues with them.
In general "boring" "adult" brands like J Crew, Eddie Bauer, Banana Republic have a lot of sweaters and basics made of 100% natural whatever- but def look at fabric content, because there's also a lot that aren't. All three of them have huge huge sales and discount code opportunities running almost all the time. Land's End is another one to look at. If all you want is a plain black sweater you have it really easy- you'll get nice clothing at super discount (j crew, banana) or you'll get fairly HQ old school built to last stuff (eddie, lands) at a good price because you arent paying for the brand to fuss with styling, courting tiktok influencers, or whatever else.
Finally, get a sweater shaver, and then search on eBay/poshmark/etc for 100% cashmere, 100% merino, etc. You can get people's gently used HQ basics for thrift store prices (I do all the time).

Im not excited for that, sustainability is a fucking fraud for first world countries, I live in south america and legit everything you can reasonably buy is fast-fashion tier stuff, I was actually flabbergasted by the quality of some F21.
Also second hand is ridiculously hard to find something wearable, I have some hand me downs from my mum but our country used to be a dictatorship fairly recent so we genuinely didn't get "fashionable" until the early 2000s, aka thrift shop clothes are just jeans and tshirt, and the weird stretchy polyester dress sometimes.
Im pretty sure the fast fashion will move onto us while it crumbles in the US and Europe.
>>158258> I think we are going to see more brands produce sustainably
I think we're going to see more brands pretend to be sustainable, but there's nothing to gain from being sustainable for the really large brands/companies.>>158307>legit everything you can reasonably buy is fast-fashion tier stuff>flabbergasted by the quality of some F21>thrift shop clothes are just jeans and tshirt, and the weird stretchy polyester dress sometimes.
It's not really any different here in (Western) Europe right now though.
Eh I guess only the amerifags get to have nice stuff nowadays then.
Im having more luck buying stuff from asian brands, the shipping is a bit stingy but i love the styles and fabric.
Thanks for the advice everyone!>>158314
Hey anon can you recommend Asian brands. I love their sizing since I'm short with shorter legs but I'm also the anon who likes better fabrics bc they last longer.
From the comments I see here or on the internet in general, it just seems to me like people don't know how to thrift and expect to find high quality items for two dollars in shops that already do the picking and sorting for them (which is why they charge more, so that won't happen).
There isn't such a thing as a "good" thrift shop because they all get their clothes from a variety of sources, and "good" is subjective anyway. If by good you mean having higher quality designer items, people usually sell those online or take them to a consignment shop because they get more money for it there and people are better informed in general nowadays. Also, lots of people expect thrifting to be as easy as walking into H&M and picking up a cheap trendy item in your size for tomorrow's date, and then get frustrated when they find nothing.
General tips for thrifting:>Get your measurements!!!
Take out a tape measure (or a string and a ruler), find out your bust, waist, hips, shoulder, sleeve length, inseam and seat measurements. "I'm an M" or "I'm a size 6" means nothing when cuts are different from brand to brand. Some pants just give me a wedgie because the seat is too shallow for me even though they're technically my size.
So many people who say thrifting sucks do not do this and are shocked when stuff doesn't fit them. Or if an online thrift store has reviews, they will often say "I ordered a medium but it's too small!" which is really stupid.>Measure a similar garment you already own to see how it will fit, how long it will be on you etc
>Search the name of the brands you like
Ebay, Goodwill, Etsy, swap.com, any of the reselling sites (thredup, depop etc) are good for this, also FB Marketplace, FB pages, Facebook buy/sell/swap groups and Craigslist or whatever local flea market platforms you have
These are good also if you live in Podunk, Alabama or a third world country.
For weeb brands try Rakuten, Yahoo!Auction, Mercari, Zozotown, Ebay
>Example Ebay search:
"Sezane dress 6 -8-4-xs-s-m-34-36-38-red-black" gives you Sezane dresses in size 6 and removes other sizes and those two colors from the search
>Try to already have an idea of what kind of wardrobe you want, what you need for it etc
>Check often and try to learn when they get new items in
For example, my country's online thrift shops put up new stuff on Wednesdays and Thursdays usually. Email them and ask if you can't find out otherwise.
Especially neighboring countries/cities (or Japan/Korea for weebshit), use Google Translate if necessary.
>Get better at Googling/searching websites for items in your size, colour, brand etc
Nowadays there's search filters but they tend to be broken and stuff is often sorted wrong.
>Buy nice or buy twice, and take care of the stuff you have already
Even if something is used, it's usually better to pay a bit more for something better that will suit you and your wardrobe/lifestyle perfectly. Be picky, don't get things because they look close enough and you can make it work somehow. Inb4 I can't afford it, I live in a third world country on minimum wages and I can afford it so you can too. You don't have to have a huge wardrobe with thousands of options to look good and be comfy.
The one exception is sizing, if you learn how to hem and take in jeans by hand and have chunky thighs or a big ass you can buy a size bigger and alter them to fit you perfectly, and it's super easy, you just need some strong thread and a needle.
You don't have to listen to my advice or anything, but I'm super happy with my wardrobe now, everything fits great and it's all thrifted except for underwear. It takes a bit of work but saves a lot of money in the long run (if only because you're not constantly replacing things and buying them again).

What is this style called? I'm not joking anons
Me too anon. I think that when the 90s/2000s craze ends in a year or two, the 70s-esque style will prob trend.
I mean weed is now becoming more accepted and guys are letting their hair grow long lmao.
I'm not really fashion forward.
Do know what similar style would be called?

I live in a third world hispanic country as well and I hope sustainability doesn't become a trend here. I actually feel like most f21 garments are better constructed than most things I see on markets or most clothing departments because they come straight from the lowest quality chinese suppliers. I just wanna dress cute for less, I can't even afford a $20 f21 blouse because in my money that equals a big luxury.

Idk if I'm too picky (burgerfag) but I legit cannot buy anything at Forever21 anymore. Let me clarify that I used to buy everything there when I was 12 in 2010, but as I got older and became more practical the more and more I can't find anything to buy. It's not the fabric quality, but the lack of options that they have for when I'm looking for a specific item. Let's say you want to find a plain white button-down, you go to Forever21 and they have like 8 versions of that but each one has something excess (like frills, multi-colored buttons, patterned trim) that basically disqualifies all of their options because the add-ons limit the shirt in terms of styling with multiple outfits. Even novelty t-shirts for music & film are always the least versatile in terms of styling because Forever21 can't make a normal band shirt–they have to add distressing/tears, tie-dye, cut-outs, etc.
That isn't to say that F21 never has staple items, because I actually do own and wear a couple of items from there that are (mainly tops). But I've only found something to buy prob like once out of every twenty times I go there. Especially while they slowly devolved from selling basic sweaters to selling Cheeto bodysuits and denim jackets with "don't taco bout me!" & a ~kawaii~ taco on the back.

Dios mio anon, I completely feel those prices, my local mall recently has gotten a Cotton On which is basically an Australian Brandy Melville and im legit crying over the clothes, they are mostly cheap-ish cotton and linen but its just glorious to me, i save up my money to get a piece there once or twice the semester.>>158500
Tbh I think they sent us less uwu quirky pieces down here in the third worlds, the F21 left here in my region is mostly basic pieces with some statements in a corner.

I live in France and it's already a big trend here.
Mainly apps like Depop and Vinted. I know some stores like H&M also want to jump in the bandwagon by having second-hand sections.
I almost never buy clothes in physical stores, last time I went it was at Bershka, and it basically was the same trendy zoomer shit that you can buy on Aliexpress for cheaper. I wish we had an Urban Outfitters in my rural city just because their stores are really pleasing to look at
Cotton On isn't an Aussie Brandy Melville, BM just happens to be the popular style they're copying at the moment. I find Cotton On super overpriced for the quality tbh, I like plenty of their clothes but rarely buy anything.
I'd rather shop at BM for real but I better lose weight first kek, there's a store in Bondi.

I'll probably sound like a weeb for saying this but I really prefer the way Japanese women style their feminine clothing. All the malls and stores where either live sell gimmicky fast fashion club wear or clothes that a Karen would wear.

I don't like the right outfit, but I agree with you. Somehow there's trends of frilly and other feminine details in western fashion recently but somehow it looks incredibly not feminine. I wish we could have more girly, outrageous clothing too. Also, do you mind if I post some photos I have saved? I hope you don't cause I'm going to do it anyway.

Ayrt you hit the nail on the head I think since cuteness is extremely popular in Japan they've perfected the aesthetic? Sorry I'm shit at explaining lel. In America sexy and mature is what's most popular and anything really feminine is considered immature or for little girls.>>158815
This outfit is so sweet its the perfect blend of cute and feminine without looking like a DDLG monstrosity.

Need opinions on pic related, I like the cropped grandma cardigan trend, I already have one in purple and one in black. I saw this monstrosity and I kinda want it
It's a cute pattern/colorway but I think that neckline + white shirt makes her look broadchested in an unflattering way.
Then again in my unpopular opinion, pieces don't have to be flattering to be cool, this with black mock neck, black cigarette pants, black/neon combat boots would get a like from me on Instagram

Idk why I thought of Paris Hilton.
But after looking up the style, I mostly saw depression sweaters, denim pants, skirts with tights and uwu shy poses.
I guess anything with denim pants, skirts that are right over the knee paired with flats or short heels and simple makeup styles with a natural hairstyle.

Not my style, but it's minimalist, youthful and feminine. I feel like BM is the clothing equivalent of Glossier. I think people mainly shit on the brand because of its marketing techniques based on a weird beauty elitism (young, skinny, natural and effortlessly pretty)
Their promo pics have a weird "tween sorority girls" vibe that freak me out
Also Depop BM sellers are fucking insane with their prices

I’m in the same boat as you anon and unfortunately it’s just that dresses like these aren’t tailored to suit all body types. If your boobs aren’t too big then your arms are and it throws it off or the rest of your body is too wide/round for the silhouette to translate “correctly”.
What you can try is this style of dress (long, draping, a bit flowy) but with more form fitting design at least on the upper half. It will accentuate your shape and keep you from looking frumpy without it being skin tight. Because in the previous anon’s picture on the right you can see the dress looks like it makes more sense when the person wearing it has a more petit or slim upper body. Picrel is example of the difference in shape I’m talking about from Nastygal (https://www.nastygal.com/let-your-love-flow-midi-slip-dress/AGG68937-105-16.html
Isn’t Larme kind of super dead tho?
Most stores closed or migrated styles.

And? They still look pretty good in my opinion.
Because they are and the dimensions and heaviness (layering) of the pieces they wear only accentuate it. >>159932
The one on the right with the blue scarf and black tights looks fine, though. >>159927
In the older photo with the 3 women they also look fine and the coordinations are pretty.

It has a name, so I did some research. This was part of Beshka by Gianni Penati done in 1970's. According to Vogue's site, this fashion is known as soft retro 70s (When you look it up type fashion at the end). I hope this helps, it is very unpopular but you might be able to find soft retro modern looks that have similar style. Keep in mind though modern day fashion isn't a fan of these color combos.
File: 1605496876121.png (1.67 MB, 1524x1200, fa grid may.png)
I think it's dead on the western world front. I fell in love with it with the black-pink-red aesthetic but most of the japanese brand moved on with their color schemes. Western facebook/online communities tried to force styling rules like lolita but it's a casual style so it was always going to evolve.
I still wear it and there's often great second hand items on auction sites. I personally have evolved my style into a different colour combination but it still involves lot's of texture, defined waist or shape and accessories that aren't found in regular stores (HM, F21, Cotton-on ect)

My grannycore tradlarp heart is crying, why do I have to be too poor to afford those Son de Flor quasi-medieval dresses.
This fit screams weeaboo white girl from Oregon who is getting ready to call me a nigger for not turning at the stop light quick enough. I really adore these shoes though, wouldn't mind picking them up for my yearly conference meetings.>>159972
This fit is so cute. Don't care how gaudy the colors are either this is peak butch. Love this retro style back when people didn't care about experimenting with bold colors.
I don't know the 'white girl from oregon' context but what about that outfit screams weeaboo? Genuinely curious, that's just about the last outfit I'd associate with weebiness.>>159981
I like the upper half of this outfit set, not so much the brown sweater, shoes or accessories.

The basic bitch hairstyle and mousey dress combo translates to undercover weeb. Fuck the wool sweater is even included in the moodboard it's like every stereotype about book worms at once.

Oh man, you're about 70% right except we say cunt here in Australia. The shoes are by Tory Burch Jessa Hardware heel - Super comfy and they also come in a knee high boot.
I'm working on improving my hair styling so I'm still in 'basic bitch' territory>>160063
I'm not a fan of the style but the pre-order option to secure your preferred colour is nice. Have you considered Goyard totes?
I honestly feel like Telfars are kinda ugly and overhyped, but honestly I can't be that mad because of the price point and no bully, and this is a personal bias, but I'm more partial to the idea of supporting a gay, West African designer being African myself lol. Maybe that's a dumb Tumblrina thing to be hung up on, but that's my two cents.
Have you tried looking at Burberry? They have a few big totes on their website rn, but they might be a bit too old lady-ish?

NAYRT but would love to know how you’d dress up every day, maybe example outfits. Does it take you long? Do you have simpler go-to outfits for lazy days or just never have lazy days? Did you notice a difference in the way people treated you vs if you didn’t put effort in? Do you repeat outfits or have a wardrobe you can mix up?
Sorry for all the questions, I’m shit at fashion so rarely bother, people who dress up all the time fascinate me lol.

Hi, I usually dress up everyday because my clothes are just unusual so whatever I put on I'm "dressed up", I have a lot of blouses and dresses, and weird skirts and pants and even if I wear a normal tshirt or sweater I wear a vest or weird jacket over it. I haven't noticed people treating me any different. I just get compliments from girls sometimes.
I try not to repeat outfits, to always try something new, but I've noticed that when I do try something new it just doesn't work so I think I will be sticking to tried and true outfits from now on… I'm not some fashion know it all, I just pick whatever I have in my closet
I tried to draw you some outfits I got a compliment on but I realized I wasn't good at it so I stopped just at this one.
Almost everyday, regardless if I'm leaving the house or not. Dressing up nice just makes me feel really good and productive so I do that even if I'm not leaving the house lol. I have a LOT of repeat outfits though, because I'm very picky with what I buy.>>160638
I love it when anons draw for other anons, you're the cutest.

ordered some platform mary janes from asos on a whim, are their shoes any good quality-wise or should i just return them?
File: 1605971490246.jpg (21.01 KB, 282x532, IMG_20191218_145731.jpg)
Augh these are atrocious, why do adults want to look like children so bad it's weird. If you want higher quality shoes try Neiman Marcus or Bloomingdale. A little on the pricey side but worth it. ASOS has too much leeway for quality it's really up in the air when it comes to footwear.
Been watching a lot of 90's shows I love the r&b aesthetic from back then. So comfy and fun I keep going back to pics of Nia Long and Left Eye for my Spring 2021 inspo. Judging by the fashion houses I follow I'm not too far off the mark in trends for the SS21 season, seems to emphasize returning back to basics. Really cool to see the fashion industry finally give in to the demands of the people and switch their main textiles.
I’m the first anon who replied to you! I have a lot of vintage pieces so I’d wear those a lot (lace-up leather knee high boots from the 60s, peasant blouses, tapestry skirts, a big orange brown corduroy coat) and a lot of statement pieces (faux fur leopard jacket, band tshirts, free people bell bottoms). To think of like, outfits, some of my favorites from last year were platform sandal heels with huge free people bells, a band T-shirt and a denim jacket, or a faux fur jacket with a crop tank top, a plaid miniskirt and docs, or a long skirt with a band T-shirt layered over a turtleneck with docs and my leopard print coat.
I’d say I have a wardrobe I can mix up a lot! A lot of my stuff can be paired with more basic pieces to tone it down, or dressed up with similarly out there clothes. I do have lazy days where I wear just jeans and a T-shirt, however I’ve tried to find jeans that I like that are unusual fits to make it stand out a little bit more (low-rise or baggy jeans, button fly flares), and I always try to wear a cute pair of earrings. I also really like juicy tracksuits for my lazy days running errands which are definitely more “dressed up” than standard sweats. I do often get compliments on my dressed up outfits, I think people just like to see outfits that are different and fun!! I guess I feel like I am treated differently solely because my outfits do attract attention, dressing down and not having people approach me can be nice.
As someone who has had to hand wash clothes many times in life, yeah, that sounds a little off. If the clothes are not too dirty, then yes the detergent does most of the work, hand/machine agitation is for dislodging dirt and stuff. I've washed entire loads of filthy clothes by hand and hung to dry them & they came out clean and fresh, so it's absolutely possible, but not just by leaving them in detergent+water. Washing machines spin and agitate for a reason, after all.
His clothes must not get much use other than casual wear, but this is a YMMV kind of thing.

This is retarded but I feel like I'm in an awkward position where normies perceive me as goth or emo or whatever when my style is more of a casual dark witch type stuff, I wear dark practical clothes and silver jewelry, black dyed hair with shaved sides and some sliver/blonde streaks, and earplugs and piercings so I kind of see where they're coming from but I don't to have my style mixed up or get compared to TikTok kids trends and I don't wanna be that person, does anyone else have this problem? do I just embrace it?
Just roll with it.
I used to just like wearing black and everyone asked if I was emo or goth anyways.
What they call it doesn't really matter, does it? Because whether they call it 'goth' or 'casual dark witch' or something else entirely, in all instances they see the same outfit. And that's what it is about right, what the outfit looks like. If that makes sense lol.
I think most people just jump to 'goth' or 'emo' because those are the only names they can think of for a dark alt fashionstyle.

Does anyone know where I can find a metal chain link bikini top like pic rel? I ordered that specific set from a retailer in the summer, but it got lost in the post and sent back to the seller. They've been terrible at communicating so I'd like to request a refund from them, but I really want to find this style of bikini top to basically wear as jewelery on top of puff-sleeve blouses. Haven't seen anything that hit the mark on Etsy

I like that this design also features the O rings, thanks for your help>>161127
I was thinking that I would wear it to parties as statement jewelery on top of a blouse. One of the costumes in Russian Doll actually features a similar chain link bra styled this way (pic rel). I'll probably wear it to seduce my s/o at some point too, so it's actually more versatile than it seems lol
Look at photos of the look you’re trying to emulate to figure out what’s different about what you’re doing.
It’s hard to give advice without a pic but some ideas:
- if you’re mixing different styles, make sure they compliment each other, are a balanced ratio, evenly distributed
- not too many statement pieces
- limit your colour palette
- ensure the look goes with any other jewellery and your outfit as a whole
What country are you from?
Im not a big help; i looked but found because im in europe it was cheaper for me to just buy them here and not deal with VAT and shipping. It seems to be worth it for Australians though.
I recently watched a youtubers video about this. I dont want to shill it but you can probably find googling second hand luxury brand in tokyo videos. She gives a handful of the shop names and links their ebay links. I would try to only buy from physical stores with ebay/jahoo auctions only though because friends have still gotten good looking knockoffs. The stores always verify that its authentic and usually really picky with their quality ratings. Whenever you find a good deal; double check ebay/2nd hand online shops and compare shipping and potential custom fees.
In my experience the few hundred bucks i "Save" i would have to pay in VAT. I know americas custom limits are much higher but if youre buying a 2k+ purse, i would check the tax rate AND fees. Ive bought niche japanese stuff like lolita and paid 70 euros on a $200 dress because of the handling fees but again Americans dont have this problem.
>>161176>Theyre all basics but look nice and mature but not old lady.>huge fan of their bras because theyre all wireless.
They often have great quality clothing compared to other fashion brands for basic stuff. I'm a bit weak when it comes to the graphics tees because when they tend to Collab with others to make it's usually not in your face huge weeb
Highly recommend their inner wear especially their heattech

Just wanted to share, there are fucking cool.
if you want really chunky ones go for filas, I have eu 39 feet and they make them look about 15cm long lol. other chunky ones are airmax 90 and 97, maybe even try new balance? ime superstars have the same effect of somehow making your feet look smaller although they are less chunky. AF1s or converse are def clown shoe territory however.
As for if you need them - that's for you to decide! i personally love them and think they are nice to make any outfit more "dressed down" and young/sporty but if those are not the vibes you are going for/just don't like the look, don't bother.

I wouldn’t say they are a necessity but different iterations of the white sneaker have been on trend for like 8 years now and they match with a lot of diff outfits so they
are fairly ubiquitous
I have the same size feet as you and have had like 10 different styles of white sneakers over the years, so apologies in advance for going into mini review mode. honestly I lean into the bratz doll feet proportions pretty hard. Converse are a hardddd no for me. Nike AF-1s are probably the least chunky sneaker I’ve really liked over the years. Fila disruptors had a moment there but they aren’t as versatile as I’d want them to be as an everyday wear with my current style. I have a pair of Jeffrey Campbell platform sneakers that give off the same vibe but aren’t as aggressively sporty. I’ve owned a few diff adidas styles and they are comfy but just okay imo. Common Projects and Golden Goose are wayyyy too pricey and aren’t chunky enough. In fact I sold my Common Projects a while ago. if you’re looking for something chunky but wearable maybe try superga’s platform sneakers? There are also a lot of smaller brands doing their takes on the chunky white sneaker that could possibly work for you better than the extremely mainstream brands
Thank you for all your opinions/mini reviews this is what i was looking for.
Maybe i should try airmax but superstars are def one of the ones that made me look like a clown. Especially since theyre more rounded toe boxes.
I bought the Fila disruptors but in pastel colors not too long ago and they arent very versatile.
I thought the AF1 were also too long looking but court visions were by far the worst. I havent worn converse in years and they didnt look bad but they just werent nice on my feet.

This is basic but does anyone know a good place to get high waisted straight leg denim, a la mom jeans? I used to get mine from American Apparel back when it actually had an online store until I grew out of them. I tried to replace them with a bigger size but the pair I got from their Amazon store were super cheap and ripped after less than 4 hours of wear, and in the most random places not even at the seams. I guess I need to accept the old AA is dead and gone.
I'm returning them and want to upgrade but stuff like Madewell and is out of my price range.
Looking to spend max $75
most of the recommended "staples" are horseshit and only work if you want to look basic. what is a staple for you depends on your wardrobe.
i don't own anything white so they're not a staple for me, but red converse high tops are. i hate leather jackets and think they're super basic and tacky, but there might be some girl who loves them and wears them all the time and it works for her, so they would be her staple, etc you get the point.
mom jeans are called mom jeans because they're made to fit women, not men>>161259
I'm pretty sure most inditex stores (bershka, zara, pull and bear, stradivarius) still carry mom jeans at decent prices. All of their mom jeans I got were 100% cotton and lasted me for a couple of years of constant wear so they're pretty decent for the price. I think only one pair thinned out significantly between my thighs the rest are still perfectly wearable
I love buffalo london! are you the anon from further up the page asking about chunky shoes like those. if so, good choice! the ones you chose are really nice too, hope you love em>>161167

sweater dresses, babydoll cut dresses (but not like full poof, just like free fall from the tits down i mean), fitted over the knee skirts and comfy sweaters, slacks and comfy sweaters, more fitted dresses and a nice long cardigan and so on. i think buying bigger pieces that are black (such as any fo the aforementioned dresses) and pairing them with bolder accessories could be a good safe babby step (obvi nothing insane, like a red organza scrunchie or something). or yeah, black bottoms and coloured tops or vice versa. really depends on how strict your office is wrt dress code.

File: 1606770275528.jpg (30.74 KB, 1024x768, Shades-of-Green-1024x768.jpg)

Not sure about these ones (considering your complexion), but would like to add: coral, turquoise, "parakeet" and "lime" from picrel
No idea how all companies do it but i think majority of it goes to their outlet stores and general outlets like Marshalls/Ross/ TJ/K Maxx.
Ive noticed some stores, such as Victoria secret, save it for their Annual sales. My country has its own version of ASOS online only retailer and its returned products, slightly damaged or stuff that doesnt sell goes to its own branded in person outlet shop.
When i worked at a department store we were required to ship it back to the vendor if it didnt sell after being on clearance for a certain amount of time; the vendor gathers and sorts all their product and then its shipped out to outlets. I can imagine that if they dont gather enough of the same product they may just destroy it. No idea how it works for online shops; it could be that the product is just returned to vendor or it could be sent to its outlet shop if theyre low on stock/doing well.

Don't divide the fashion thread(s) even further please. There's already a seperate vintage fashion thread and fashion image inspo thread that both go largely unused and I don't think another seperate thread exlusively for tomboy inspo would do any better.
Just keep it in here, everything fashion-related can go in here. Having fashion topics fragmented over many different inactive threads is annoying and inefficient.

Anyone knows any inexpensive brands that look boujee and sophisticated but not give off instagram thot vibes like Fashion Nova?
What does boujee mean?
Mango, &Other Stories, Naf Naf, sometimes even Zara have nice pieces. Most of the time they're kind of trendy-looking though, you get what you pay for.
French brands are a bit more expensive but they have quality clothes without the luxury price tag.
For denim? Yeah, it’s a nightmare. You have to take the jeans apart and then stitch them and fell them, if you want it to actually look good. Unless you have a heavy duty machine or no feeling in your hands, I wouldn’t recommend it.
Other pants, like slacks made of thinner material, are much easier to alter because of the constructions. Denim jeans are essentially sewn at least twice on each seam.

What is a good alternative to polyvore for making outfit sets/collages? Are there any? Or should I just get a photo editor app?
It depends on the exact item, its material, and the existing shaping/darts/seams/etc. Generally, yes, I’d say anything sort of formalwear alterations is easier than denim (I do professional bridal alterations for a living but would never touch jeans). Adding a bust dart to a dress with no lining, taking in a side seam, hemming something, etc are easy starter alterations a beginner level seamstress can do with practice. Adding side seam pockets to dresses is also a good way to practice and there’s plenty of free YouTube tutorials for it.
It’s a little corny and vague dated (shoulder pads) but Judith Turner’s “The Sewing Bible for Clothes Alterations” is a really good basic primer and is easily found at hobby stores or online for like $25 USD.
then I'd say go for it.it shouldnt be too hard to find as a neutral.
and for any anons who're curious;
autumn = warm toned, low-contrast
spring = warm toned, high-contrast
summer = cool toned, low-contrast
winter = cool toned, high-contrast

They’re really hard to find at this time of year but I think a delicate white strappy sandal heel would go really well with the early 2000s vibes in these dresses. Picrel is the only one I can find on Steve madden rn but during the spring/summer it’s way easier to find ones with lower heels https://www.stevemadden.com/collections/womens-heels/products/gabriella-white
these are perfect anon ily ♥>>162633
they are for love and lemons knockoffs from aliexpress (pls no bully), the shop is called "SS&DD Store." i've ordered from them a couple of times and love them. my only warning is that if you're tall (5'8+) the dresses might be too short. fits true to american sizinghttps://www.aliexpress.com/item/4001084233544.html?spm=a2g0s.90423220.127.116.11a4c4dOFwskphttps://www.aliexpress.com/item/4001051704968.html?spm=a2g0s.9042318.104.22.168a4c4dOFwskp
but if somethings grey-ish all over/muted,then it's low-contrast. it's just a way of wording the same thing.
sorry if this is geting argumentative or off-topic anons.
First collect inspo and make a mood board or something that you can base your looks off of. Next look into rockabilly groups online and avoid doing the things they suggest. I know >>162035
says the opposite, but I think she means vintage communities, not rockabilly.
For example, if you like this pic, you could reproduce it with a similar dress and hairstyle, but you would want to avoid rockabilly style victory rolls or caked makeup. Tacky rockabilly also tends to have a lot of edgy/quirky motifs and bold color combinations, so part of the reason this piece works is because it's just flowers with a cohesive color scheme. >>162026

This is so cute to me.
Blue isn't exclusively cool, so it's not going to look great if you wear a warm blue on a cool toned skin.
I am cool toned too but I have veins like you too. According to my seasonal color (12 not 4) I can also wear some gold but silver is the safer choice. Which makes sense with my veins. So I think it's a bit more nuanced than the typical "blue veins = cool, green = warm" you always hear about.
If you know how to tell cool and warm colors apart in clothing you already have, try putting them around your face without make-up on and in natural light. You should be able to tell what flatters you and what doesn't.

Technical apparel designer here. The appeal of cashmere is that is much softer than “regular” wool because the fibers are incredibly fine. Personally I love cashmere for sweaters because I find most wool scratchy but cashmere and angora are the only kinds soft enough to wear without it being uncomfortable. I’m not rich enough to buy high end cashmere for retail prices so I usually buy if from consignment shops or vintage stores.
Not all cashmere is created equal, so just because something is “cashmere” doesn’t mean it’s necessarily well made. The grade of the cashmere fibers can vary a lot. If you’re buying it from a fast fashion brand, it may feel soft initially but it’s likely to pill and not age well. There’s so much important info that you can’t get from just looking at fiber content unfortunately.
Also, there are times when poly or acrylic fibers or blends are totally appropriate for a sweater! It sort of depends on what style you’re looking for. You can’t get a “chunky knit” look from cashmere because it’s too fine. Some times a sweater doesn’t need to be buttery soft to look and feel nice. (See pic related, which looks cotton or acrylic to me.)

Ah yes, my worst nightmare…..
Is there anyone else who looks atrocious in 70s colors? Color palette wise im a dark winter so all those browns and beiges have been a real hassle to me fashion-wise.
You can't build a wardrobe that's truly trendy unless you have the money to replace all your clothes every season. If you want to build a longlasting warderobe it's better to focus on either timeless pieces that you know you'll wear for a long time regardless of trends and/or your long-term style.
There's a kibbe thread floating around somewhere in the /g/ catalog, if you can figure out your type it can really help you recognize what clothes pieces work on your face and body-type. The examples are often a bit outdated/unfashionable imo so you need to be able to take the abstract info and apply it to clothes yourself. For me it really helped me recognize what clothes work on me but also understand why certain styles of clothing (for example skater skirts and babydoll dresses) really don't look that good on me even though I badly wanted them to.
If you're also interested in color-theory, look into the 4 or 12 season palletes. Like someone above said, it's a bit of a meme but it's definitely grounded in truth.
> I want to have a nice wardrobe but it seems like a lot of effort to maintain an aesthetic.
Building a nice wardrobe that works for your body and/or personal aesthetic IS a lot of effort, both in terms of researching what flatters you and also actually finding and buying those clothes. But definitely worth it if you like fashion and want to represent yourself in the best way possible.
When everything is too exaggerated, it’s okay to have one, maybe two statement pieces in an outfit, but any more than that feels like someone is ready to get on a stage and serve a cool monologue.
Even though some costume-y outfits looks nice, it can get tiresome to wear or to look at depending on the statement pieces and where are you wearing it to.

I don't know who to point you to, but mixing core elements with grunge neutrals can give you a soft romantic look but not overdone. Does image help at all?
Agree with >>164358
as long as you look clean and tidy, it’s fine. If you’re really self conscious you could just do very simple make up, literally 2-3 products, but that would be more for your confidence than other people. I never look at a make-upless girl dressed cute and think she should be wearing make up.

Sorry for flooding but I had a question for those who live in warmer climates; how often do you wear leather and do you get overheated a lot in them? Planning my wardrobe for the spring and I don't want to get too many pieces of one type and end up hating it. Also worried about moisture getting trapped within the fabric and stinking, a bitch be sweating half the atlantic in the summer time
Yes, that helps a lot. I love that jacket.
I was worried I couldn’t wear Docs anymore tbh because they don’t seem like they’re for romantics.
It just looks cheap and I think carrying a knockoff is really tacky, tbh it was hard to carry cause it was astral blue and match a lot of my clothes! I’d probably get a black minibag if I did go all in for a real bag. >>164628
Okay duly noted! I had never heard that abt therealreal, any other suggestions for 2nd hand designer?
So it looks cheap but you didn't realize it was fake for a really long time?
Anyway if you want opinions from people who know a lot about designer bags you could ask on the purseblog forum.

What do you think of fashion glasses? the ones that aren't prescription/ophthalmological glasses. I have a pair and the times i've worn them i have received lots of compliments. Personally i think that with a nice outfit they look great as an accessory, but for some reason i feel dumb for wearing them since those are like "fake" glasses lol.

I'm thinking about buying this skirt, but I'm wondering if this style will look dated a year from now?
>>164866>never been into fashion and only
wore what I liked.
I mean that's ultimately what fashio is, wearing what you like. There's nothing wrong with wearing black turtlenecks, minimalistic black clothing is also a style.
You could google search for a list of fashion styles but that's never going to complete you know. If I where you I'd just hop on pinterest and browse through fashion boards, browse through fashion tags on instagram, maybe follow some fashion blogs or youtubers. Just explore for a while and see what's out there and surely you'll find something that catches your attention.>>164927
It's trendy rn for sure but the cut and pattern itself are pretty timeless. I think it's non-offensive and timeless enough to buy it. It's also a versatile piece so you can easily pair it with newer trendy items next season(s). Not that you should get too caught up in wearing what's trendy anyway.
>>164927>I'm wondering if this style will look dated a year from now?
Would you seriously refrain from wearing/buying clothes you like because it may not be trendy in a year? I don't get this mindset but so many people have it… I mean, either you like something and want to wear it or you don't. What difference does it make if other people are wearing it or think it looks outdated?
Not to mention it's a very normal looking skirt, when has it ever been considered a fashion faux pas to wear something like that?

I just found out sunglasses with clear lenses exist, bought this pair from Uniqlo. I've always liked how glasses looked despite not needing them and sometimes wore fake ones in high school, but I never felt like I could get away with it as an adult. This solves my problem because they are actually useful and I have an excuse kek.
also sage to add;
Im not into coach, MK, etc. I dont mind Ralph laurens style but theres nothing i really like atm. I also dont like Tommy hilfigers, calvin klein etcs offerings atm and rather not pay for a name as i feel theyre nore branding than quality.
Im sick of buying bags that peel or wear down/off super quickly.
Probably 6, black, white, nude, strapless and 2 sports bras so you can wear one while the other is getting washed.
I particularly like having a bunch of them because I enjoy wearing cute ones with lace, different cuts and such for different tops/dresses and different textures/builds depending on how I feel like dressing up that day.
When i was a non standard size, i had two not counting sports bras.
now that im a standard size and can buy my bras anywhere that sells bras….
I have a few tshirt bras (grey, white, black), three wireless bras/bralettes that i use if i have a sheer shirt/tank that im ok with people seeing that looks purposeful because i dont like wearing layers in summer, a strapless in nude, 3-4 cotton sports bras for post gym or sleeping in front of others/friends and lots (7+) of sports bras that are meant for working out.
I'm not sure what you consider tall but im 175cm and I live in europe and i absolutely don't fit into a good majority of pants and back when I weighed 55kg and wore size S pants they'd always be too short for me
My mom is even taller and she struggled with that shit for her whole life so no, europe doesn't cater to taller women

I absolutely adore Victorian/Edwarian, and especially Renaissance fashion. Period pieces always leave me swooning because I wish I could get away with wearing the exact same outfits
Is it possible to wear these sorts of things in a modern way, without looking like you’re about to go to a Renaissance fair or cosplaying?

How do you keep a synthetic sweater looking good? Is it even possible?
I buy a sweater or two every winter and after every season I have to throw it out because it's just become so worn out. The yarn looks dull and even after using a fabricshaver there's fuzz and pills left.>>166222>Most Europeans aren't tall, or even skinny
Nta but the tallest countries are literally all in Europe and obesity isn't by far as bad or widespread as in America so that's objectively not true
You don't need a ballsack bag, but you may need the idea of a ballsack bag. Or rather, you may need the idea of a 'little black dress'-it doesn't have to be black or even a dress, it just needs to fulfil the function of 'oh, I need to go somewhere, I can just slip into this'
Closet essentials will vary a lot based on your personal taste, and what looks flattering on you. It's better to think of the function of the garment within your wardrobe
Okay, so that's like what, three countries out of how many in Europe?
And skinnier than Americans means nothing, the whole world is skinnier than Americans. Doesn't make fat Europeans any less real. The whole thing just sounds like a shitpost by someone who hasn't been to Europe and thinks all Europeans are the same.
do you think common eastern european is a fatty
europe has more contries than uk, france and germany
Eastern Europeans can't afford to eat so they don't count.>>166788
I live in Scandinavia, lots of fat people here even if it isn't the majority. Short girls are also very common.

I'm not a Disney whore by any means, but I like the shape and concept of Elsa's traveling outfit in Frozen 2. I kind of wish there were some normal professional clothing like this.
Not so gauzy, obviously not like a cartoon, but I'm a little obsessed with how "in charge" this silhouette could be with the right materials.
Am I the only one? I think it's the long blazer/jacket/cape with structured shoulders (those aren't actually apparent in the pic I attached), plus the fact that the outfit is flowy and not body-conscious.
"Elsa’s travel outfit includes a coat, dress, pants, and boots. The coat has very structured shoulders and epaulets to telegraph that she is the queen—anyone who meets her knows she’s the one in charge. The epaulets are meant to feel a bit like armor, imposing and strong, and were originally part of an earlier outfit that was designed but not used in the film. But they created such a beautiful silhouette that we wanted to incorporate them somewhere, and they ultimately became the element we designed her travel outfit around."
A quotation from the art book. I think they really nailed it about how this is elegant but still gives a light "armour" feel, and that's why I dream of an adaptation of this look for business.
I know reddit is horrid but /femalefashionadvice at least in the comments has always been really helpful for me. Ive never created a thread but normally get great advice in all the weekly/daily question threads.
Im not sure what country youre in and im not in the US so idk specifics for you but maybe fashion magazines webpage? Glamour/vogue/cosmo in some countries have forum pages.
I had a random site i found googling fashion forum but it was mainly ladies over 50+. They were fashionable but not on young people trends. It had light blue logos and headers
The fashion spot keeps popping up for me but i have no experience with it.
there are also more indepth forums for certain styles or luxury goods/purses.
I normally click around on youtube and read comments. Sometimes they have discussions on them.

Anon, if you're interested in wearing casual fits with this I think this one of the easier pieces to do it with rn. Apparently corsets are on trend too?? (But ppl are wearing it horribly over some oversize white t-shirt.) I was curious about casual fits with this bodice in particular from French Meadows, so I checked their tagged pics to see if anyone had an "out and about" photo. I attached what I think is a super cute casual outfit with it.

Yes, I like that lol.>>167242
The corset you can get from French Meadows! (Attached pic.) You can find them on etsy. For handmade/tailored corsets I think they're pretty affordable imo!
As for the shorts I'd look up something like: brown or terracotta, linen paperbag shorts. (Paperbag tends to have that nice relaxed fit and the texture looks linen-y to me but a cotton look would work too, of course.)
But paperbag obviously has the paperbag waist, so a more seamless fit if desired could be a-line shorts instead.

If ""Ëurope"" isn't tall then literally no one in the world is. In pic rel. out of 25 countries each and every one of those except for the shortest two, Israel and Russia aren't (entirely) in Europe. This picture isn't cherrypicking, any top ## tallest countries you'll look up will consist out of almost exclusively European countries. Yes Europe is more than those 10/20 countries but stop bundling 40+ countries together as one if you want to be more accurate ffs.
I'll take the ban for derailing farmhands.

I've wanted a comfy pointy witch hat ever since I saw pic related, but how to actually pull it off? I'm afraid of it looking costumey no matter what I pair it with. My wardrobe is mostly black and mostly skirts/dresses, for the record.>>167308
I think most people find it hard to imagine that the average height or weight is really all that different from what they're used to, and that goes both ways. You have to see it for yourself to understand that there are huge variations in what the average people walking down the street look like in different countries. I factually knew that the average person in the US was way shorter and heavier than in my country, but only when I actually went there did I truly realize it.
Have you seen "the DIY designer" on youtube? I liked a few of her easy DIY clothing alternations.
Its probably a bit of work to go thru ugly and cute though.

but now I'm disinterested in it completely, then I moved on to dolly Kei, classic lolita and cult party kei (all at the same time, not separately) ,though I dislike how pastels look on me and I dislike the idea of an overly bulky silhouette, particularly on my lower half , but I feel like I'm getting bored of that too. Should I just continue until I find a style that I like for over a year and then try it out, should I give up and settle with a normie wardrobe that is more utilitarian and function that I'm just okay with, or should I do something else entirely?

I hope this doesn't sound shallow but is anyone else glad to be female because we can wear so many more things? We have such a diverse array of clothing and items to wear and choose from and so many different things can look good on us. I feel like female fashion is a lot more interesting that way
Lol, yes. I know the other anons basically said no, but I love getting dressed and am glad it's more socially acceptable to give a fuck and be ott since I enjoy indulging. Trying to see the silver lining, y'know.
Side note, but it's hilarious when men seem jealous of all our clothing options, and it's just like "you can do whatever you want? But also… do you want to take this away too?? You're already getting accolades for doing the most basic makeup look. What more attention could you possibly need?"
>>167896> we can wear so many more things? > can
Men are men, if they want something they'll take it or do it. If men genuinely wanted to dress in more interesting clothing they'd do it and the options would be/are there, the average man just doesn't want to. Therefore you don't have to be flad you're female for that reason.
If anything I think we're at a massive disadvantage, because a girl or woman who doesn't pay attention to how she dresses is a "tomboy" or "frumpy" but a guy who doesn't pay attention how he dresses gets no such commentary.
I'm not a scrote, but okay.>>168133
I see what you're saying.
eh, i think if a man wanted to dress with a wider array of clothing he def would, but men are socialized so far from caring for things like fashion/how they look + clothing is often tied to identity and most men don't wanna be percieved as "queer" or w/e + societal pressures blah blah blah, so they don't.
tbh i do wish society, both western and eastern, was a lot more accepting when it came to fashion and looks bc i feel like a lot more men would be a lot less compelled to fit into specific labels if they were just allowed to dress however and it wasn't a big deal. like say, a normie high school jock wearing a skirt like it's nothing but he doesn't have a whole identity crisis over it, and it doesn't imply anything about his sexuality. idk if i explained myself properly.

I'd be careful getting rid of all your clothes just to buy into that specific style. Since it's so trendy it's also going to be out of style soon. Personally I'd take it slow and buy a few new pieces at a time and get rid of old clothes slowly by selling/donating them.
Why do you feel bad about buying new clothes? Is it the money or sustainability?
File: 1611435783307.jpeg (41.38 KB, 474x711, th (22).jpeg)
Ur right, I thought about leaving them in thrift shops but neighbor apps might be a better place to start esp. since its not a good time to have yard sales. >>168498
I don't want that specific style but just an edgier style, and I've been wanting to dress "edgy" and dark my whole life but I've always been too autistic to do it. I want to focus on basics that I can dress up or down and a few statement pieces. The edgiest pieces I own are skeleton shirts like picrel
For me its both, I don't have a stable job(ima student) and I feel like buying more would be a waste of my "perfectly good" clothes. And if I go thrifting I'd be taking clothes from people who really need them.
dont fall for plus size community bullying people who upcycle bigger clothing meme either.
Usually upcyclers are taking unwearable clothes and repurposing them or some thrift shops have an abundance of larger sizes and have pickers who pick all better "straight sizes" for online resale. At least ime locally in the midwest.
If you're really concerned about taking from those in need only visit chain thrift shops like savers, gooodwill, salvation army and avoid church thrift shops who might give those in need free clothing. Though the chains usually are known for shady practices and supporting local church thrift stores would likely give back more to local families in need.

Can you rock the try hard "french girl" look if you're not lanky af? I want to look put together yet casual, but I have big ass legs, I'm trying to picture myself in ankle pants and loafers and it seems like it's going to look ridiculous with my callipygous (kek) body.
i think it’s still attainable! there’s no reason why you can’t get a pair of looser fitting jeans in a cut that you like to pair with the average loafers/shirt/blazer combo. maybe cropped mom jeans or boyfriend jeans could work?
i understand what you mean because i have a small waist, giant thighs, and small calves, and even jeans that are supposed to fit loosely tend to stick to my thigh and then billow out at the knee and the silhouette can be really weird and embarrassing, but i think it comes to a point where you just have to say fuck it and just wear what you want anyway. if you style your outfit well with nice accent pieces, i’m sure you’ll look good!
Bad idea, the good brands are super overpriced and the shit brands are just cheap taobao garbage that's also overpriced.
Either buy secondhand from japan if you're a weeb or directly from a Korean store (stylenanda, chuu, myfiona) if you're a kboo.

Nah, anon. There are actually some french actresses who, though not overweight, aren't lanky skelly ana-chans. People have had the audacity to call Lea Seydoux "chunky" before. More curated vintage shops are good for this. They often have tailored looking pieces with old school charm, and not just in like only xxs these days. If you can't find good shops anywhere you live even etsy is a good bet lol. Wide legged pants look good with this style. You can get them high waisted and pleated and in all different styles.

I covet them but have never worn the Margiela's. I don't like plastic flip flops. The straps really annoy me. I have worn lots of tabi socks to go with geta footwear though and they never bothered me. The straps on the geta I wear are always soft fabric though. I have never had particularly dry feet and moisturized. Hard to say if they would bother you.

My body shape is pretty much like pic related but I don't know how to dress it, what styles/cuts would look best?
Right now I dress pretty tomboyishly (mom jeans, band tees, flannel shirts) and I feel like it looks very frumpy on my body shape.
I also live in Alaska and have to wear drab puffer coats and layers of ugly dad clothing a lot of the year, and indoors I just wear pajamas or whatever old T-shirt I can dig up.
I want to look cute and feminine for once in my life but I don't know how, a lot of the things I try on in store look terrible on me because I'm not tall and thin and I have a prominent belly (not weight related). Does anyone have any tips?

How versatile are bright/multicolor shoes? Do you think it will be hard to put together an outfit with pic related?
Another alaska anon! I'm not in the coldest part of the state, but hopefully I can help a little. The figure in the pic has a defined waist, so if you're trying to hide your belly, I'd suggest flared(a-line, circle, etc.) skirts with waistbands that hit at your smallest point, and tuck in your shirt. It helps hide a tummy without making you look shapeless or frumpy, and I don't think you have to be thin for it to be flattering. I usually keep warm with thick wool tights or leggings underneath and wool or cashmere sweaters (thrift them, online thrift stores like thredup are great for this if you know what you're looking for), and my big puffer jacket for when I'm outside. Nice skirts made from thicker fabrics tend to drape really nicely, so don't be afraid of tucking in oversized sweaters, it shouldn't look lumpy. I'm kind of tall, so I normally go for midi skirts, but knee length might be better for you if you're worried about looking short.
Of course this is all kind of assuming we have similar fashion tastes, so I apologize if it doesn't work for you. I do get compliments on how I dress pretty often, though, and it isn't expensive if you can thrift shop.

We all know about vanity sizing and just how sizing is fucked in general, but shoe sizes have their moments as well.
Was gonna get a new pair of air forces since mine were busted as fuck but was like nah since the original price went up. As I was gonna go off the site I saw that they have a "older kids" section, I converted the sizes and I only had to go up half a size (and my feet arent uwu smol either). They were half the price tf.
So if you are gonna buy shoes check to see if they have them in older kids/teen sizes, it could save you a lot of money.
The largest size they carry for older kids is EU40?? holy shit, those are full-on female adult-sizes?? Too small for me unfortunately but most women I know wear like EU38 or 39..
What an actual scam. I had no fucking clue.

just do a french capsule wardrobe and you'll look good no matter what. invest in a few quality pieces and you can mix and match.
>>170260>Darling, it's frumpy only if it doesn’t fit
Fuck off with this Justine Leconte energy seriously. >>170196
isn't stylish it's just bland NPC background clothes. Who's told you in black skinny jeans and a grey slub top that you look GREAT? Let's stop pretending that just because a style is boring as hell doesn't mean it's chic/minimalist, this shit is just dull, it's just a way to dress without getting noticed, it's the capsule wardrobe you pack for the witness protection program
Agree that it's dull and boring but it's not a bad start for this anon >>166699
she asked for essentials.
also agree, >>170196
is really bland. I mean for suck sake color won't kill you. Patterns won't kill you. This is such a 'I don't give a fuck about fashion' wardrobe.
shame stuff like >>170196
is what's used to represent it then.
samefag but like I said, basic akak 'easy straight forward wardrobe' doesn't have to mean boring. >I mean not everyone gives a fuck about everything you personally like.
What are you even talking about? Are you trying to imply people in the fashion general thread don't care about general fashion? I don't see how it's unreasonable to assume they probably do lol

i mean, there are colorful capsule wardrobes too.
Which part do you not understand?
1. If you don't want to be a cow, don't behave like a cow.
2. Why are you asking this? Do you want to dress in a way that is cowish?
I don't think wearing j-fashion itself makes you a cow but most people around you are still going to think you're weird if you dress up in like Lolita or Decora. Although if you look at Japanese streetwear, imo some of it is more wearable than others.
Personally I think that j-fashion is something that should remain something to enjoy looking at on the internet if you're concerned with what other people think. You have to be able to give 0 shits about what other people think of your outfit. If you can't do that you're going to be uncomfortable all day wearing it.
This was never about age though so why do you bring it up? Also >>171013
File: 1612937902028.jpeg (Spoiler Image, 353.26 KB, 750x725, 5738B373-CDE6-4ABB-8EEB-A59307…)
I just ordered this bathing suit- it’s basic but I haven’t bought anything other than a black one piece in years. Anons is it cute?
I feel like the capsule linked here >>170196
is missing a lot. Yes, I know it's meant to be basic. But I see exactly one "nice" item (the black dress). The rest is skinny jeans + boxy top. Maybe it's a step toward dressing better, but I think it's helpful for people in transition to start incorporating more business or professional clothing into everyday clothes (even if you're just going to uni). Start experimenting with a blazer, buy a couple nice collared shirts that fit your breasts and are not see-through (outlets are good for this if you are in the US). Go to a quiet store and try on different styles of jeans. Don't cheap out on jeans. Places like Primark have shit quality jeans, and their skinny jeans / jeggings are so unflattering. People wear them because they are cheap, not because they look good.
Skinny jeans are on their way out if you care about fashion - I'll still wear mine sometimes, but I kept hand-me-down bootcuts from my sister so I'm one of those horrible hoarders I guess. I really like the look of narrow bootcut jeans in a darker wash. I'm going to sound very mid-2000s here, but you really can dress that up or down easily. Skinny jeans are just never great outside of casual situations. I ended up at a club once in them (no time to change) and I remember how gross I felt for some reason, even though other people were dressed more casually than I was.
Another thing to do is think about what colors work for you. Sometimes these aren't your favorite colors. I wear more brown than the average person, probably. I can't wear millennial pink or baby pastels - I look sick. The capsule linked above could make certain complexions look sickly.
When you are going from no wardrobe to the next step, I think you can do it gradually, considering the value of things as you go.
Do you have a bra that fits you - 100% without a doubt fits you? That is more valuable than all the ballsack bags in the world. That is the first thing you need. It sucks getting groped by a bra fitter, but go do it, and buy some new bras if you have any doubt. Since I vaguely remember how many small band size + larger cup size women are here, this is my favorite bra: https://www.bravissimo.com/products/rebecca-bra-faj1/#beige-faj1nu
It's cute even in beige, never shows through, is soft and comfortable, and comes in 30 band size. I feel a little better about my shit life when I wear this one.
samefag but this, well, I see it's from Denmark
it gives me primary school teacher / mormon mom blogger vibes. If someone handed me this blueprint, I would be horrified. I guess I'm not into this kind of colorblocking.
Where you live may be a factor too. I'm not studying in my home country, and here too much color is uncommon. You'd get a lot of attention dressing like this in winter where I am. Once I realized I was the only one in an entire lecture hall wearing a bright color (red sweater). It was kind of weird.
It's sloppy if it doesn't look intentional. If you're going to wear athleisure (or anything, really) and not look sloppy, you need to make sure that your hair/face/nails all look well maintained. >>170196>>170491
These are both hideous for different reasons. A good capsule wardrobe will have an item for every need you might have. Mine is
>one black dress>one summer dress>two plain t-shirts (white and black) >two knit turtleneck sweaters (camel, taupe) >two turtleneck tops (black, white)>two crewneck knit sweaters (white, grey) >two warm cardigans (white, black)>one white button-up shirt >one black button-up half-sleeve shirt>two "cute" tops with nice necklines that show off my decolletage (dusty rose, black) >one pair of straight-leg blue jeans (I turn these up at the ends so my ankles are visible as I am petite and they didn't come in a short inseam) >one pair of slightly wide-leg black jeans (already ankle length) >two pairs of ankle-length ponte pants in black and grey for lazy/travel days (these have a seam down the middle of the front of each leg so they look pleated from a distance) - I will try to avoid wearing these since they're not "real" pants, but on my period I often can't wear buttoned/zipped pants due to cramps and bloating.
For summer I additionally have two pairs of shorts in black linen and denim, and I have two wool coats in camel and forest green. I have a pair of boat-neck tops in taupe and black that I've been thinking about phasing out of my wardrobe since they don't really have a role.
Another important thing to note is that I only purchase natural fibers and get my clothes tailored to fit me perfectly if they do not do so already off-the-rack. Tailoring is really cheap.
No? Anons itt are so weird about dressing down it doesn't matter if you wear athletic wear or sweatpants to run errands just make sure the shit matches. >>171007
This is a thread for fashion, what do you expect. Like >>171000
said it looks ridiculous in person and doesn't do anything to flatter the form.

Anyone know wear to get some decently quality pants like this or what to search for other than "suede flared bellbottoms" my old as shit F21 pair don't fit me anymore and I want to get something similar but nicer.
Nta but boring is kind of inevitable with a capsule wardrobe. It'd be very difficult to have a small wardrobe with exciting pieces that you can all mix and match easily.
Imo there's only two reasons to have a capsule wardrobe: you're a super busy mom or carreer woman and simply don't have time to waste on clothes or you give 0 shits about fashion and just want to get over dressing yourself in the morning as easy and quickly as possible. So I don't understand why capsule wardrobes are a much discussed topic in this thread.

I think it could be worth it if you can find a good one. I don't have personal experience with one but I'd look at reviews and go with one that has experience dressing your bodytype.
Why did Kibbe not work out for you?
First I can't tell my type (FG, D or DC), second I have a hard time translating the recommendations into clothes that fit my lifestyle, age and taste, not to mention the advice available on the Internet is contradictory and Kibbe himself on Facebook is impossible to understand. I do believe it is a useful categorization as several women I know identify strongly with their Kibbe type description and find the recommandations great for them. But they already knew what suited them and Kibbe was just a confirmation of that.
I'll update the thread if I bite the bullet.
I see, that makes sense. No I just meant body type in the broad sense. Like curvy/plussize, petite or athletic etc.
Let us know how it went if you decide to do it!

Does anyone know where I can get shirts like pic rel or even >>171587
I really like the "dad" style and Hawaiian shirts. Thrifting is out of the question because I've tried that and they don't really have anything interesting in my area.
i find that just starting out with some pretty standard everyday black pieces like black skirts, shirts (for me personally turtlenecks) or pants if that's your thing are a good base, goth outfits are usually made a little more bold with accessories, maybe some fishnets, belts, necklaces, painted nails, chains etc etc
but you don't need to go crazy and honestly I think it's a lot more classic goth than those brands that try to go crazy with lace
Anons, can you help me find some style of jeans/trousers that will suit me? I’m pretty sure I’m a pear shape since my bottom half is bigger than the top. Now the problem I have is, that any style of trousers/jeans I wear bunches up around the knees because of my big calves. I found that something like chinos are the worst because of their light fabric and I’m really self conscious about wearing skirts or dresses. Could a tailor do something about it? Do you have any recommendations for brands or a certain style of jeans? Any help is appreciated!

if you dont mind something sporty(but its a 2 piece usually) i think these surfer 2 pieces are cute and the bottoms can be more like shorts than a bikini bottom. it protects more of your skin which is a huge plus but probably not great if youre trying to get some sun.

I feel like you could get some womens swim trunks and wear them over a one piece if you wanted something more sporty and functional-looking. Swimdresses are a thing though if that's more your style! The only problem is that obviously the skirt portion would lift up when you get in the water, so it depends on how thoroughly you want the scar to be covered and whether or not you'll be getting into the actual water much. Picrel is just as example, I've seen some swimdresses with longer skirts.

Pic isn't mine, but my body type is pretty similar and I feel like I look blocky as fuck in skinny jeans, especially when I'm wearing a tight-fitting shirt.

I’ve gotten sick of the quality and the ethics of fast fashion but also the prices of high quality fashion. I will save up to buy things like jeans and shoes because I’m no longer growing, it’s cheaper to buy an expensive yet high quality thing once then a cheap thing over and over. So because I don’t want to spend ridiculous amounts of money on quality clothing but I loathe fast fashion, I started sewing. I was also tired of finally liking something, like a skirt but only liking the silhouette but not the pattern or vice versa. While my sewing skills are an advanced beginner, I have already made a skirt that is light years better quality than fast fashion, not only in construction but in materials, too. Sure, it takes more time but to have 100% control over your clothing is amazing. I only hope one day I can start creating my own patterns.

I learned the very very basics in high school. But not a lot. Let’s just say I had to relearn everything.
So I hope this info I have found will find you well.
YouTube helped so much. Seriously, it would be such a struggle without it. Here are some of my favorite sewing instructors on YouTubers:
There’s many free sewing books to check out on archive.org. My recommendations are the Singer sewing reference library series. They’re pretty dated but the information is still really good and super helpful. Basically just search sewing in all books/texts.
Here are some places that I buy extremely inexpensive but exceptional quality fabric or notions:https://www.wawak.com/
- notions and supplieshttps://www.fashionfabricsclub.com/https://www.fabricwholesaledirect.com/https://fabriclore.com/
-from India. I’ve done the math. Buy purchasing around $USD100 it approximately makes each item regardless of yardage around or under $5. Figure it out by cart total ÷ total number of items. So, even though it’s $20 shipping it’s still worth it because you’re still getting a better deal than most other places.https://www.dharmatrading.com/fabric/fabric-from-dharma-trading-co.html
-best prices on silk. I don’t dye fabric so I buy their colored silk.https://buttonsgaloreandmore.com/
-buttons are cool. These are bulk buttons that can be used for sewing or craft projects. https://www.mjtrim.com/https://www.pacifictrimming.com/https://laceheaven.com/
-lace is sexy idc what you say.
Finally, skirts are the best starting point.
I hope you find any of this helpful. Sorry for the blogpost.
Happy sewing, anons.

Why do I look like a clown in floral patterns, and what to do about it if I want to go for a kinda romantic sundress look? I love solid colour dresses, esp dark ones, and look absolutely bomb in horizontal stripes, but honestly it gets boring and I crave some botanical vibes.
I have a wide af jaw and my face has been called "severe" lol, I look a lot like a dirt blonde younger Miranda Otto (not Eowyn young unfortunately). I'm wide-shouldered but hourglassy so everything has to be pretty fitted, height is 5'6, Kibbe type is all over the place but dramatic classic is the closest probably.
I recently got pic rel and it works okay, it may just be my lack of confidence wrt florals but something still feels a bit off. Wat do? How much does it depend on the size of the floral pattern, right colour combo, and styling, or do I just need to accept that I'll always look like an evil career stepmom with no chill or interest in plants?

I’m not sure if it’s a set-in-stone rule, but for ladies with more bold classic features, I like to see them in smallish, well spaced florals like picrel. Something about a classic woman in those big bulky florals tends to lean a little intense or soccer mom-ish.
this, I would like a wideleg black or darkgray/darkblue jeans or trousers with those, the top could be black/white as anon said but I think also any beige-brown-tan color would be cute for the top. I'd like a more serious top like a buttonup or thick-ribbed fitted sweater to balance with the slightly wild shoes. I think a fringed suede jacket would be a nice extra since itd give you a real woman-cattleman kinda vibe but not on the nose, and you could take off the jacket if you didn't want to go full cowboy. More broadly I like the idea of taking a cowboy-boots-casual type of outfit and wearing these instead of the boots.
Pretty jealous actually because several years ago at a thrift store I passed on a pair of mule clogs with cowhide like that (it was real…very nice feel) cause they were a whole $20…big regret

pls no bully but anyone here like aritzia? I used to rag on them all the time for their random high prices but I think I might cave and buy a few things. I'm trying to find cute, simple, feminine but adult clothes like pic rel but I'm having a hard time finding things I like. I checked out rouje and sezane but their style is too boho for me. I also like missguided (lol) and reformation but I'm just generally a bad shopper because I'm so picky and set in my ways I unconsciously pick a lot of clothes I'm trying to grow out of.

I love Aritzia, a lot of my favorite pieces are from there. But I do find them a little overpriced for what a lot of the clothes are. Their sales are really good when they have them though, if I see new season items from there that I really love I just bookmark them until sale season happens. They're also a high price point, but you might like the brand & other stories if you are an Aritzia fan

I don't have a specific percentage in mind. If I need something, I buy it. If I want something and I can justify it by it's price, quality and how much wear I expect to get out of it, I buy it. There's a difference between needing and wanting.
As for adding new pieces to my warderobe, I go shopping for the sake of really getting clothes twice a year, once for spring/summer and once for autumn/winter. Beforehand I inventarise what I have and what's missing for the new season so I can get it on my shopping trip. Usually I buy 1 to 3 new outfits or a few single pieces. The rest of the year I do a lot of online window-shopping because I find that enjoyable and I occasionally order something if I want it and can justify it.
This sounds kind of excessive but I actually spend way less on clothes than most other people I know. (This is my perspective as a student though, I don't have a full-time wage)
>because I've never really entertained the idea of spending more than $20 on a shirt
And you don't have to if you don't want to. But if you want to buy more pieces than the bare minimum to dress yourself in your day to day life, then I think it's important to remember that's a different mindset of buying clothes. If you then buy, let's say a 40 dollar t-shirt, you didn't buy it because you NEEDED something to dress your torso in, you buy it for your enjoyment and satisfaction you'll get out of wearing that t-shirt. And it's okay to spend money on that if you can afford it. People spend money on hobbies and other luxuries all the time, this is the same. For example, I bought a beautiful summerdress last week for about 60 euro. I didn't NEED it, I have enough clothes and dresses to dress myself in this summer, but I wanted it because it was beautiful and fit my style perfectly. I justified buying it because I had the room in my budget to spend that money on it, I knew I am going to get a lot of wear out of it and I knew I am going to get a lot of enjoyment out of it. So it was worth it to buy for me. I hope that makes sense lol.
Thanks anon! Definitely makes sense. I'll consider this (and then do some shopping!)>>175622
They donate them to hospitals, shelters etc. We also have a substantial homeless population and needy people so no, there's no clothes burning, just passing your old stuff down to someone who can use it. The whole concept of thrifting is still not very popular here, although I asked around and found out there's exactly one thrift store in my city. Going to check it out soon
Generally I save money by buying out of season and personalizing them myself, since I also used to feel weird about it.
How I usually spend is once a month or so I just window shop and only pick up pieces that speak to me AND are cohesive with my established style. It has to be both. Then I wait until a sale and buy it. I don't go on big trips, just one or two items once in a while. It takes longer to build a wardrobe this way but after a year and a half I've switched over to something I'm pretty comfortable with.
Budget-wise it's the same as going on a big trip 2-3 times a year, but psychologically I feel better about not spending over $100 on one transaction. So that may work for you, too!
