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.

Any anons have experience ordering from Instagram “boutiques”? I follow some stores and a lot of new online stores/boutiques have been popping up on my Discover page. Some that are on my discover feed atm are @allprettygirlsboutique, @shopmegoosta, @luminosaclothing and @breathofyouthclothing (which aren’t my aesthetic personally except for maybe luminosa) — all of which look relatively trendy. I’ve heard of newer fashion lines overpricing wholesale items from aliexpress and I’m wondering if this is the case with all of these new boutiques as well?

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

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

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.

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.

>>155946
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.

Bottoms:
-red skirt
-black skirt
-navy skirt

legwear:
-white knee socks
-black tights (already have)
-white tights

tops:
-white collared long-sleeved shirts made of natural fibres
-red sweater and cardigan
-white blouse
-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

looks like she’s wearing a sticky bra/a second bra under the fashion bra. common practice for people who want to fool you into thinking they don’t photoshop their cleavage, they just use other tricks. you can see that it’s a plastic clasp holding something together, which makes me think it’s a sticky bra meant to simulate or enhance cleavage by pulling the boobs closer together. her boobs do not look like they’re full or big enough irl to fill out that bra, it looks like it’s laying almost flat at the bottom but she has cleavage. she probably though no one would notice or forgot to shop it out.

Does anyone else think vintage fashion is going to make a HUGE comback after quarantine and the whole corona stuff?

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.

I think they've definitely influenced the rising popularity of wearing vintage, but it's always going to be a niche interest because many people don't have the patience to source vintage clothing and they'll continue to resort to fast fashion retailers out of convenience. A lot of people simply don't have the confidence to wear vintage either, as another anon pointed out. I find that pretty unfortunate.

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.

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.

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.

you just have to try placing it on different areas of your head, like more to the back if you want to create the halo effect, or more to the front, slightly tilted. once you figured out the right placement just pinch the fabric to mold it into the right shape and straighten out any weird folds. should be fairly easy if it's a wool hat. i have a wool beret and it's my go to hat, it looks cool with a lot of different outfits. keep experimenting, maybe even give your hat a steaming if you can, you'll figure it out.

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.

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).

If it's available in your country, check out Zalando Lounge. They're always selling clothes at discounted rates and I've seen expensive and premium brands selling 100% cotton, cashmere, wool etc. clothes on it somewhat regularly. I've got some really nice, high quality pieces on there for highstreet prices. But you need to keep an eye on it and be patient because every sale only lasts a few days and they add new sales every day.

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.

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.

>Look abroad

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).

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.

The cropped grandma cardigan trend is just about the worst trend to put any money into. With other trends, once the trend dies out you're left with a piece of clothing that's simply not trendy anymore but still fine to wear, but after this trend dies out you're left with a piece of clothing that's considered dumpy and grandma-ish again.

I tried on pic related recently, and it was absolutely gorgeous on the clothes hanger (pic doesn't convey it honestly) and I loved it so much but once I tried it on it looked so stupid on me. Still sad about that one.

>>159861 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?)

Well, they might need better fit for skirt and some of the skirts can too long for an outfit. If you are short you wanna have a short skirt and avoid stuff that makes your leg look shorter than they are. The girl on the right has too high of socks and too long skirt. It makes an awkward look in general. She should have went with ankle socks or boots with heels. It isn't the fashion but the choices of length on the legs that makes them appear this way.

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.

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)

I want to change my personal style, but I'm 24, I'm not a teen still figuring out what I like, just a shy adult who always wanted to dabble in the kind of big titty goth gf style.

Is there any way to transition to a new style in a way that feels natural and won't make everyone around me think I'm having an identity crisis? I used to wear a lot of chokers and fishnets and I wear mostly black (boring though, long-sleeved tops and leggings mostly) so it's not a massive leap.

Maybe get a crazy haircut. But do it progressively like don't dye and cut it all at once, just take your time. That's what I did and everyone is just like "oh I like your hair" and not "WHOOOOAAA what happened to you??" Getting a haircut also inspired me to change my style because crazy hair goes better with weird clothes than cutesy or normal clothes. Also you will look way cooler with crazy hair and wearing office attire or just any classy attire. But maybe that's just my opinion. (I'm biased)

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

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.

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.

For some reason it's really hard to find this refined style of mary janes, I've only seen retailers selling variations which are really wide and chunky looking, or with a really tall heel

Does this really clean your clothes well? Basically what this guy does is put his clothes submerged in cold(!) water and detergent, let it sit for 4 hours, pour out the water, rinse once more to get all of the detergent out. After that multiple steps to dry.

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.

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.

I've heard on multiple occasions that you can get 2nd hand brands for good prices on yahoo jp auctions, does anyone have personal experience with that? If so, can you tell me about how it went, how much you bought and how much you ended up averaging per item? Was it overall cheaper than sourcing the items from ebay and etsy and places that sell 2nd hand designer etc.? I'm not looking for niche jfashion stuff like lolita or himekaji but mostly european and japanese designers like Margiela and CDG.

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.

Theyre all basics but look nice and mature but not old lady. Definitely try everything on and make sure it fits well and you like it. I love some jeans from uniqlo which has horrible ratings saying theyre incredibly unflattering and i hate their skinny skinny jeans which everyone raves about.
They have incredibly soft sweaters now that i love but the could be too warm for christmas dinner with too many people.

I keep seeing them recommended as a staple but with size US9.50/10 or EU41 they make my feet look like long clown feet.

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

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.

I used to get mine from American Apparel back when it actually had an online store until I grew out of them.

I wouldn't freak out. I've bought jeans from Madewell in the past and they've always been true to size. All jeans stretch out over time because cotton can expand but can't retract very well. Most of the mom jeans on Madewell have a high cotton content, so it will be a stiffer fit that will kind of mold to your body over time. I think you made a better call than buying some cheap jegging shit that'll wear out and look bad quickly–just take care of them and wash them properly.

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.

Does anyone have any recommendations for trendy brands with tall sizes? I love miniskirts, but I'm 5'8" and it is 20 inches from my waist to the tip of my finger while most normal size miniskirts are about 15 inches in length. ASOS and Topshop have really limited supply when it comes to their tall skirts. I'm starting to think I should buy normal size midi skirts and just hem them.

No. 162259

Not really an answer but I’m convinced anything to do with sewing in particular to pants is a witch’s craft lol. Once I turned these fucking cargo shorts double my waist size into cute shorts but it was so much fucking weird trial and error, and lots of weird crotch V that I could not for the life of me figure out what was going on. Denim also just sounds like a fucking headache to deal with since it can be so thick.

No. 162270

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.

No. 162346

>>162314
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.

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.

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.

I don't own cashmere because I can't be assed to properly launder it, but as someone who used to work at Uniqlo, I would recommend you check out Uniqlo's cashmere. It's some of the cheapest you can find (although I see right now Jcrew has some on sale for cheaper). It's one of Uniqlo's biggest items, I used to even have people ask me when we were getting some in the summertime lol. People fucking love it and always raved to me about how much they liked Uniqlo's cashmeres, so I guess it was good! We usually have cashmere go on markdown around Jan-Feb when spring stuff starts getting released. Sizes are extremely limited, but you can find sometimes cashmere on markdown for as little as $20 if you're really lucky.

I promise I'm not trying to just up Uniqlo's sales, I don't work there anymore and hated working there but I think it's worth mentioning since customers really seemed to love the cashmere

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.)

my question is that… the people who have aesthetics who post on instagram, how? it seems very time consuming. i am 23 yo and I want to have a nice wardrobe but it seems like a lot of effort to maintain an aesthetic.

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.

I was typed as a Kibbe Romantic. How do I combine well fitting and flattering clothes for a romantic with “grunge” and “soft girl” types of clothes? A lot of it is very shapeless and baggy. Any good influencers on IG for romantics?

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.

Anyone into designer bags?

Would an authentic Prada nylon bag be worth it? Scouring therealreal and it would set me back 400-600, which is a lot less than I’ve ever considered paying for a bag (planning on getting a Goyard after graduation), but do you think Prada nylon bags are worth it?

ok so i really need some fashion advice. I'm a total fashion noob, never been into fashion and only
wore what I liked. So I recently got rid of all my cartoon animal printed shirts amd got some new stuff.
Now my wardrobe consists of mostly black turtle neck pullovers. Boring.
I'd love to get some more exciting clothes, but I don't know where to start. I'm afraid if I just create a moodboard
I will never leave my black-turtleneck comfort zone.

So where can I start?

It will. I don’t see this trend lasting anywhere for a while after spring. But just because it’s not trendy anymore doesn’t mean it isn’t wearable. In the fall it would still be cute. If you can afford it and still have other options in your closet it wouldn’t hurt to buy it imo.

>never been into fashion and only

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.

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?

Im looking for a crossbody bag or one of those wallets on a chain purses that also can fit a phone and its case. Im in europe; so preferably something sold here or a european brand. Ive been suggested Dagne Dover and STatus anxiety and really like Dagne Dovers clutch wallet but with Vat and covid i'd prefer to buy within EU.

I prefer quality over brand name too. It doesnt have to be leather but should be in something neutral like brown, black, navy etc and im looking to spend 65-200 euros. To be extra specific ones with zippers instead of just a single clasp as i find when theyre too full/heavy the weight is just too much for the magnets it stays open. Two clasps might be okay.

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."

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.

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.

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.

I used to save a bunch of twee fashion photos like >>156027 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?

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.

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.

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.

I buy a lot of designer shoes and purses, and the resell market on Poshmark is excellent. I normally buy stuff on sale, enjoy it for a year or so, and then when it's impossible to find anywhere, off to Poshmark it goes for more than what I paid for it but less than the original price (unless it's a coveted piece, in which case yeah I'm scalping). You can easily flip these for more than $433CAD, and yes, that's taking normal wear and tear into account.

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.

The colours and patchwork style would make it easier to match I think, depending on your personal style.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Do you think going to a personal shopper for fashion advice is worth it? I feel like I have no time to figure out what suits me. What I do know is that I like checkered stuff, colorful stuff, and short dresses. Can't make a wardrobe out of that. I hoped the Kibbe system would help streamline the process but no.

Money not an issue from the prices I've seen online.

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?

No. 172708

>>172697
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 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.

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:
Threads sewing
Evelyn Wood
Professor Pincushion

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 supplies
https://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.

Ladies, what percent of your income is okay to spend on your wardrobe? How often do you add new pieces to your collection? I'm looking for some perspective!

Growing up poor meant that I bought utility-only pieces for YEARS even while I was earning my own money, and I'm only now realizing it's possible for me to create my own look and buy things i actually like. I'm still feeling some resistance though, because I've never really entertained the idea of spending more than $20 on a shirt. (thrifting is not a thing where i am from)

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.

>thrifting is not a thing where I am from
what do people do with old clothes, just burn them? There might be hospital charity shops or church sales rather than a "thrift store" but I'm pretty sure secondhand clothing is a thing everywhere…although if you dont have a lot of time to spend looking then it's a gamble finding anything good of course.

Thanks anon! Definitely makes sense. I'll consider this (and then do some shopping!)

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!
