Does anyone have a pleated skirt like this? How do you ensure that it remains the same shape?

No. 183369

You don't really have to do anything, even if you iron it it will stay that way

No. 183370

>>183366
If it's a fabric like that the other anon is right, you don't really have to do anything and it will usually keep its shape.
With sturdier natural fabrics you might want to iron the pleats in the proper place after washing the skirt in order to keep them that way. Either way, the pleats on long skirts like that will be less tight/noticeable towards the bottom just because it moves around more and needs the extra width to accomodate to your legs and stuff while walking. But there's no real way around that.

Depop is still pretty overpriced most of the time. If you want truly cheap secondhand clothes you need to go to secondhand sites that aren't exclusively for fashion, especially trendy fashion. I use European sites so idk what to recommend besides Ebay but basically the more literal garbage you have to sift through before you find something you like the higher the chances of getting what you want for dirt cheap.
On sites like Depop most people who use it will already be aware of how much they can ask for their stuff. Big generic sites is where people who are clueless about the secondhand value of their items go. IRL thrift stores are the same way, it's the difference between Goodwill and a place calling itself a 'vintage boutique'.

does "cancer" just mean "not cool and pretty like depop"? yeah baby, you and everyone else thinks that, that's why stuff is 5x the price on depop. Depop sellers legit buy stuff off ebay to sell on depop and make 5x their money, that's how cheap ebay is. Like do you think depoppers just find all that cool stuff themselves? No, they mostly buy it off of ebay, take nicer pictures, and resell. It's a legitimate service because finding the good stuff on ebay takes time most people dont have. But if you want to cut out the middleman go to ebay yourself. Basically on depop ypure always paying the "cool tax".

Ebay hints: in the search sidebar tick "buy it now" only because auctions suck, restrict it to your region to remove international results, and be prepared to scroll like 100 pages. Ypu can try using the search's size filters and stuff but most ebay sellers dont use them right so I wouldn't.

No. 183426

>>183423
This. It's a sacrifice you need to be willing to make; either you spend the time and effort needed to scroll through a huge amount of listings in exchange for possibly finding a gem, or you decide it's not worth the effort for you and you buy from more expensive but also more user friendly sites.
Yeah, it can suck, but basically everything that makes ebay sucky, like the search filters being useless and half of the listings being the same chinese stock photos, is also what makes it such a promising place to look.
Personally I'm the type to scan every single page for hours on end because the thrill of finding good shit is worth it to me. I can't stand the thought that what I want could be just around the corner so I can do that shit for a really long time. It's really a matter of personal preference, you either have convenience but at a higher price, or a pain in the ass website for a lower price. Either is fine, but if you're outright asking for places to look and then dismissing the most viable options there isn't much else to do about it.

Uh no. I have used ebay for work and I have looked there before. I am not a fan of it. Depop is easier if you know how to use their search, it's not a cooler than ebay. It's a fucking website ffs. I don't like shifting through Ebay's layout and through million of stock photos. Not to mention, bidding is something I genuinely don't have time for because I have a life. Most of their listing is bidding if they are not bidding they around the same price on depop only some of the ebay listing are just straight stocks. That is my criticism.

Depop has a better layout and easier to deal with basic things like messaging. I can't imagine scrolling a shit load through ebay. Sure, ebay has them like what maybe 40$ cheaper but I don't have the time to win bids.

>>183466
…ok? So you won't use ebay because it's ugly and not fun? We know that, you said that already. But why are you asserting that ebay isn't much cheaper than depop, when at the same time saying you won't scroll through ebay? If you haven"t done the scrolling, you haven"t found the deals. There's no need to look at auctions, literally filter them out. Like, take the advice or don't, but don't call other people wrong when you literally don't know what you're talking about.

I'm sensing though that the real issue here is that you are shopping on your phone only, in which case, stop doing that or expect a shitty time. In addition to the "cool tax" on depop you're also paying the "people who only use they phone" tax. Yeah the ebay app is probably crap lmao I wouldn't know. Being an adult, I use websites and not apps.

The simple logic is, it's easier for people to list something on ebay and more unpleasant for buyers on ebay, therefore there's more sellers and fewer buyers and prices are therefore lower. The opposite is true on depop.

budget: 2nd hand, not sure if it's possible to shop sustainabe/non-fast fashion on a tight budget.
money isn't an issue: There's (designer) brands like Stella McCartney, Reformation and Armed Angels that are sustainable. Here's a helpful website to find brands: https://www.fairify.io/ You can search for a brand and it has a rating + report on why it is/n't sustainable.

I must say, the label sustainable always remains a bit, uncertain? I can't find the right word. For example, Acne Studios is claimed to be sustainable because it's part of the Fair Wear Foundation which ensures that labor standards are high and adhered to but at the same time they're not transparant about what factories they're using. Often times a brand is sustainable or is working towards more sustainable practices in one area, for example paying living wages for their workers while neglecting other areas for example environmental impact.

The "thrift/shop second hand" is probably getting annoying to hear because it's recommended so often but it's great. If you know where to look and don't mind patience you can great deals.

I really miss low rise pants. I know many people find them trashy but I find them a lot more comfortable than high and mid rise. I wear harem pants down low around the house but I was wondering if any of you nonas have found some good quality low rise that could be worn in public (besides thrifting/ebay)? Whenever I search for low rise I only get results for high waist pants and I hate that shit, but I know it has to exist somewhere because picrel is recent and doesn't look thrifted.

No. 183610

>>183586
The pants those women are wearing are designed to be high or mid rise, you can tell by the length of the crotch seam and the fabric bunching up at the ankle. They're just wearing a bigger size and styled them to sit low at the hips to get that relaxed silhouette. The woman on the right has even folded the waistband over (a risky choice imo, if the rest of the look isn't well-coordinated a folded waistband is going to look really frumpy. The outfit in the pic is tied together by the crisp white shirt, clean trainers, fairly delicate jewellery, fresh hair/makeup, and a bangin body, that's why it works).

Just get a pair of classic cut jeans or trousers with a wider waist than your actual measurements, let them sit where they would naturally fall around the width of your hips. The beige trousers in the pic look like Dickies which are affordable, lightweight work pants. I recommend you reach for the men's section.

I love low rise too, I have hated high waisted clothes since about 2010 when those high waisted skinnies started appearing.

>>183612
I agree. High waist doesn't work on my proportions either. I think you can pull them off if you have a long torso because it's supposed to give you the illusion of longer legs? But my torso is shorter and my legs are long so the high waist makes me look like all-legs Peter Griffin.

I think so and I hope so. pic related is the look I'm hoping to achieve myself lately so it's funny you'd say that. I guess by being modest it could be seen as matronly but I think it's cute and feminine on a young woman or anyone confident enough to put in effort. To me depends on the skirt and what it's paired with. Look at pictures like this one on pinterest and pay attention to what makes them different than the frumpy versions.

As much as I hate to say it, the only way to truly look fashionable in a skirt like that is to be anachan-tier skinny and have the right proportions to "pull it off". I still wear them regardless, but since I'm tall and a healthy weight for my height I always have people assuming I'm a mother (at 19). Ymmv though, of course

No. 183666

I think it helps a lot when they're high waisted like this. A skit sitting at your hips and stopping mid-calf isn't very flattering (unless someone is very tall), but you achieve a longer looking silhouette with this style.

Yes, it's the materials, silhouettes and accessories you go for that are going to determine the vibe. Either lace up flats or Mary Janes with a low heel and narrow, square toe will look the most stylish while also being comfortable imo. Pic rel is just an idea to bounce off of.

No. 183673

>>183658
This doesn't look good imo.. And it's not the modesty that makes it matronly/frumpy, it's the style of the skirt, the way it sits nearly below her boobs and the slit, the cardigan, the accessoiries, the colours.

Midi-skirts are difficult to pull of because they cut off the calves which is unflattering on most people. It's easier to just go all the way with a maxi skirt that ends just above the ankles.

Not sure if this is the right place to ask, but:

I'm a US size small/dress size 4 and looking to buy my first two piece swimsuit ever. I love pic related, but the size chart is throwing me off, especially because I haven't worn j-fashion in years.

I'd feel safer buying size L than size M, especially because I'm tall and don't want to risk it being too tight whatsoever.
It says size L is 85-88cm bust, 92-100cm hips, and 64cm waist for the skirt. Isn't the waist a little small in comparison to the other measurements? Does this seem like it would have stretch to accommodate ~2 extra cm?

I'm just confused because I'm pretty sure my bust and hip measurements are actually smaller, but my waist is probably around 66. I can't imagine myself being an LL, even in Japanese sizing…

Sorry for the stupid question, I have no experience with buying swimsuits.

No. 183707

Well, if it's swimwear, it should be that stretchy plasticy material so I think you could take a smaller size. The measurements you listed seem pretty crazy, I'm sure it's stretchy

No. 183708

>>183704
>Does this seem like it would have stretch
>Isn't the waist a little small in comparison to the other measurements?
I think that's because the waistband seems to be made from faux/plu leather, which is non-stretch. The material around the bust and hips does seem to be made from stretchy fabric so it makes sense there's more allowance there. To be certain, what does it say it's made from on the website?

Still if you suck in your stomach a little you may be able to just squeeze in the excess 2 centimeters, it's not a whole lot extra.

Thanks for the input, anons! It's 84% polyester, 16% polyurethane. I'm planning on losing maybe 5-10lb anyway so maybe my waist will shrink by summer either way, but I don't want to fully bank on that in case I fail at dieting.

>>183710

Well, I'm a bit over 5'7. I have one swimsuit from this brand that's like a mini dress, and it does indeed cover my butt! (It's a size L and fit me at a higher weight, but more stretchy than this looks.)

The top and bottom aren't connected, it just looks that way because of the hanging straps. It's a 3 piece (top, skirt, and a typical swimsuit bottom), so if it's a bit short, I'd probably just buy bottoms that are like black shorts to put underneath the skirt.

I liked wearing loose pants today like pic related (but they weren't high waist). The ones I have are hand-me-downs and have some flaws however. I wanna get more, I'm wondering are there other names for these? Any stores you recommend?

Please don't say straight or wide leg unless you're sure, but I don't think it's the same fit. My problem is having kinda wide hips and thighs so straight leg for example looks bad on me. Too tight in that region when I really like it loose all over! Just not too broad like wide leg.

Also these are cool. I'm iffy about the bunched bottoms, they're cool but might look weird unless worn with clunky shoes. Not sure about the low crotch region either (sorry forget what it's called lol). Both styles remind me of Kim Possible lol even though hers are too puffy and bunched for my taste irl.

I think what you're looking for are tapered cargo pants with a relaxed fit. That's what I searched and I found similar pants made by Levi's (pic rel).

Lol no, op was right, it is sad. If you had a friend who went to chef school, but they only ever seemed to want to eat mac n cheese, that would be like, weird, right? Not that crazy but it would make you worried about their future in that field?

To succeed in fashion you have to be ahead of trends and able to predict what is coming next. This is literally true in the sense that you need to have things produced 3-6 months before they will be available for sale, so you need to be targeting what will be popular then rather than what's popular now. Or ypu can make trends happen via promotions/placements but that's big companies only. So for you, being "aware of fashion" is knowing what's trendy now, but for someone in fashion, it means being forward-looking, and what i believe op meant was that their friend is not that.

and also…if fashion isn't art to you… maybe you just aren't an artist? Not everyone has to be. But since you apparently think "fashion" means "I will simply put the trendy massproduced apparel on my body" and there's no art involved, im not sure why you are even here, because what do you even discuss about that?

It’s not a reach. I noticed it too, with zoomers becoming interested in gyaru styles and gal centric media like anime and magazines. I guess it makes sense because of the way jfashion can reflect what goes on across the ocean, and the influences gyaru took on during it’s inceptions in the first place. Gyaru’s also been a bit more popular in scrote/degenerate anime and as a result, the degenerates who consume it (aka weeb zoomers, including nlogs) also want more of it or to emulate it. I think it will reach it’s second peak with either an actual gyaru figure, reference (like in a song), or a new shojo manga focused on a gal becoming popular. But again this seems strictly zoomers, I can’t imagine any regular person over the age of 26 discovering it within this year because of social media and choosing to revamp their entire closet to emulate 00s nostalgia when they likely already dressed normally through that phase at the time. It’s like how with the 90s resurgence we didn’t have people who lived as impressionable young adults at that time participating; either they were already dressing that way still or they were completely over the fads from their younger days.

You're misunderstanding that anon. She's not saying that fashion isn't an art, but that the fashion industry is a commercial industry that makes a profit by capitalizing on current trends. The average person wants to wear what is popular right now, they don't want to go against the grain. The experimental, cutting-edge sector of the fashion world is a niche that's a lot harder to break into by comparison. If the majority of fashion school students are either more interested in making money or not imaginative enough to push the envelope, I don't think that's surprising.

No. 185257

>>185249
No I get that, but literally to work in fashion at all even for mainstream commercial whatever stuff, you have to be ahead of trends because you have to produce before you can sell. Even in fast fashion that has as little as a 2 month lead time, you want to be targetting what will be trendy 2 months from now. So its not about wanting to push the envelope, it's that predicting future trends is itself the business. Especially as trends are changing ever faster due to internet stuff. Basically saying "well if i want to make money i should make what's currently trendy" is misguided because by the time your stuff gets made in 3-6 months it won't be trendy anymore and it won't even be the same season anymore.

If you mean that someone's gonna be making and selling the same leggings, graphic tees and floral blouses at target forever, well yes, bit i would call that the apparel industry rather than fashion. It is meaningfully different because that kind of thing is way lower margin since there's so many brands competing in the same field, whereas with per-se fashion your margins are waay higher because people will pay more for something new & different.

I think you're missing the space between apparel-industry and haute-couture. I'm not talking about "experimental" or runway fashion, I'm talking about normal fashionforawrd-y midtier clothing brands. Like a designer for zara or aritzia or such would right now be asking "ok, what will be cool next fall/winter so we can start production?" and getting that right is the difficult part.

Also that anon did in fact literally say that fashion is not an art…

Ok yeah, that makes a lot more sense and I agree that it's an important distinction.

It's luxury designers that spot the trend first.

This also has me thinking about where trends originate from, and in my biased opinion, the most fashion-forward people with the sharpest eye for aesthetics aren't even fashion designers or celebrities.

A formal event related to your education or career is not a good place to push the boundaries of what clothes are considered respectable or not. It's not a skimpy or slutty outfit in the least and I can't imagine a woman getting judged for it harshly in most settings, it's just a little too casual and a little too much skin for a ceremony like that.

Are you retarded? Anon can well that thing if she wants, though I think it would be better if she left it for her spare time. In her place I would feel fucking stupid if I came in that while every other woman came dressed in a (more or less appropriate) dress, suit etc. Wear this shit in your free time. Is picking up your diploma really the time to flex your attractiveness/sexuality (don't come at me, anon said she wants to look sexy)? Hell, why do you want to look fuckable during a professional event if you are not a sex worker?
That's like… wtf. Why is not looking pretty/nice not enough for anon? There is time and place for everything, and a ceremony during which you become a doctor isn't a time for that. I feel like if anon wanted to wear a black version of that thing to her grandma's funeral, you would still say it's ~internalized misogyny~ to say it's not appropriate.

You do know there is a difference between being a prude or "covering up" and dressing appropriately for an event, especially one that will be documented? The issue with that picture in >>185560 is that some of those dresses and especially footwear are also not fitting for a ceremony where you're standing on stage. But everyone there looks kind of young, I can't tell what that is even for.

Dressing appropriately does not mean dressing like a prude. But like it or not, there is value in showing that you understand the social and professional code for your field. Artists have one type of code. Tech people have another. Academics, doctors, lawyers - they all have some basic understanding of what constitutes formal/professional dress. My professor told a story of how one of her (very smart) grad students showed up for her Harvard interview in a miniskirt and black fishnets. I'm sure she looked great - but not for the occasion.

I bought my interview suit a couple years ago. The one issue is that it's not ideal for summer (it's an interesting tweedy brown/grey - sounds dorky but actually it's not at all, because the fabric isn't that heavy). I wear it with a floaty jewel-toned shell underneath usually. So if you think, when I say "get a suit!", that you need to buy a lawyery boring one, you don't. I think mine is from Elie Tahari.

A good resource is https://corporette.com/shop-page/shopping-guides/guide-to-basic-womens-suiting/
Now, this site is very conservative - it's too conservative for my field as a general rule, but still a decent resource that I share with other women on the job market. There are other parts of the site that talk about more casual kinds of business dress.

>>185691
This dress has a much different feel and I could see that being OK for a spring/summer ceremony depending on the front.

My sticking point with >>185218 is really that bra/bikini top with exposed middle. (Out of curiosity, do you have boobs, because that is also too low-cut imho.) That's not something - again imho - for work or university. But I'd wear the shit out of it on my own time if it looked good on me!

I'm totally in favor of abolishing dress codes, but I don't see the point in pushing boundaries at an event where the point is to celebrate a great accomplishment with your friends and professors. They are not going to turn and look at you like that cringe harry potter scene where Hermione is suddenly a woman (puke). They will wonder why on earth that's what you're wearing.

Can I ask why OP wants to look sexy at this event? I guess maybe this wall of text demonstrates that I can't quite understand wanting to show off sex appeal when this is a time for celebrating your intelligence and hard work. Just wear something else to the white coat ceremony, then change into >>185218 and go party. You deserve it.

all jokes aside, I could use your advice, nonnalina. do you think something like this is too low-cut to wear under a blazer for job interviews? I've only ever worn high-neck shirts underneath for professional occasions because I'm self-conscious of showing too much skin. I don't have a large chest but it's something that I'm worried about anyway. also I'm very fair-skinned so I don't know if white would be a good option for me or if it would wash me out. I can't try it on before buying and returns aren't free so I want to be sure it'll look okay. or do you think a pale blue would be better? something else I'm wondering is whether a string of small pearls would be appropriate or if it would look weird with this top for an interview?

Fellow curvy anon here, straight leg is my favorite cut of denim! You should try buying a pair that fits specifically at the thig/hip and get the waist tailored. That is how I shop for my straight leg denim, get that shit fitted to my thick part and then define the waist with the alteration. I'd also say stretch fabric is a meme, I wear 100% cotton personally. I buy them true to size and then after the first couple washes I wear them ever-so-slightly damp to get them to conform to my shape as they dry. I've gotten so many compliments on the fit of my jeans and people can't believe they're just regular Levi's that I simply got the waist altered of, at the store.

Are you cool or warm pale? I kind of like white on everyone; it just had to be the right white for each person.

I'm a paler olive skin (nc20-25, would classify myself as autumn) and find that baby blue and cool pastel tones make me look sallow, and white/ivory gives me more of a glow. This is a little depressing because I like the color blue a lot, and I had such an urge to buy this beautiful icy blue suit in 2020. Then covid happened and it looks like I might have a cool temporary fellowship (vs. going on the market) in the fall. So I just gave up on that suit. But I'm not sure it would have worked for me anyway.

One surprise color that worked for me was a pale lavender/grey. I expected it to make me sallow but it was nice.

Attitudes might vary but I wear 28-30E bras so a v-neck takes the emphasis off my chest (which I like). It breaks up the space better. Anything that looks like it might gape can work if you use fashion tape or tailor it. I had my interview suit tailored (mostly waist/hem stuff) and a couple other things. I never regretted that.

Pearls would look good, I think! Trust your instincts about accessories. I think you have good taste anon. Now I want to date the model you posted…

Many different factors I guess, alongside the usual fashion cyclicality

>Hippy lifestyle revival

With the second rise of New Age and Gen Zs + Millenials caring more about the environment alongside new concerns like clothing sustainability

>Covid, quarantine and the economic crisis that will follow

It has been found that people want to dress up more/try different styles as a form of escapism. The 70's are also known for their high platform mules and boots; studies have been linking the height of heels with economic crisis (really tall heels and platforms seem to become in-fashion during economic recessions), ModernGurlz made a YT vid about it if you're interrested

I guess there's also the fact that the cut of the pants and skirts also goes well with Y2K pieces like halter cropped tops and corsets.
I like it but I'm mainly happy about the flared jeans and platform mules. Not a huge fan of the 70s squiggly lines/waves design like the top in picrel

My measurements are around 32- 24 -40 and I'm 5'5. I feel like when I wear what I want to wear (long skirts with sweaters tucked in or cropped like pic rel) my hips make me look absurdly frumpy and my whole silhouette looks 20 lbs heavier than I am. When I wear clothes that are form fitting I just look slutty due to the nature of where my weight is and I feel like a fashion nova model in the worst way possible. I feel like I should know how to dress myself by now but I always feel myself gravitating back to just living the frumpy life and looking fat all of the time.

Tbh, thick tucked in sweaters in skirts are a pain and look goofy unless you have a rectangle body type.

Isn't it the exact reason why skinny jeans are out and flares are in? Always thought that skinny jeans only make your legs look long if they're high-rise, they also do that weird thing of bunching up around the knee area.

I have a similar body to you, and boy do I fucking feel you. A lot of my insecurities pertaining to my fat distribution/bone structure (and i don't mean being a fatass) kind of went away when i started looking at certain celebrities with a similar body structure instead of looking through the lens of 'skinny or fat', when the women i saw on screen were always 'thin' and i was always 'fat'. Clothes look like shit when you don't follow certain rules to your body type. I still feel like crap when i try to pull off a pantsuit that has no waist emphasis, but on the bright side, fuck do i look good in a bodycon.

I wish I had this figure, clothing that hugs the waist and hips are going to look great on your frame. A lot of 1970s trends are flattering for curvy body types. Consider getting your clothes altered so they fit you just right. You'll find you have more options it you shop for bottoms that fit the width of your hips, then have the waist taken in by a tailor. It's usually a straightforward and inexpensive alteration.

I don't get the hate against Kibbe. His theory is by no means faultless but he does make good points regarding lines and shapes of the body and clothes. His theory made me understand in concrete terms why tall western women tend to look awkward in frilly j-fashion for example.

My major gripe with it is that it’s way too prescriptive and limiting. Also outdated as fuck, Kibbe can’t dress himself or his wife well. Also feels like a bizarre cope that you can make yourself look as good as the famous women of your type if you just follow his rules. Not to mention it’s impossible to follow the rules to a T and even Kibbe contradicts himself and many of the celebrity examples break the rules.
Trust me there’s no actually fashionable women who endorse kibbe, in fact they probably don’t even know what it is. The community is full of women who are clearly dissatisfied about something about themselves and see Kibbe as a way to improve themselves. Also there have been lots of western women who look great in dolly inspired fashions (think Gemma Ward and the other baby dolls of the 2000s). Kibbe was a huge waste of time for me. Ditched that nonsense and I focused on clearing my skin, eating healthy and going from skinny to toned and now I just wear whatever I like and feel content while others are still trying to figure out if they’re a Fg or N or whatever

I feel like a lot of kibbe fashion recommendations are outdated or overly dressy/not used for daily wear. No one goes grocery shopping and to walk their dog in a prom dress. Not to mention styles that aren't curvy are often told to pretty much drape themselves and it doesn't help much with skin tone. Just fashion in general I feel tells women to hide their curves which is weird because western women are usually told they're not curvy enough and are given workouts/tips/surgery to help make their boobs and butt even bigger but also tell women to wear pants that minimize their butts and hips and shirts that make them look flat chested

I saw a video once talking about essence in a wardrobe and that helped me more than Kibbe tbh. I always wondered why I look like shit and it was because I dressed like a fashion nova babe when it didn't flatter my popsicle stick body kek. Now I dress in stuff that flatters my lines although I do wish I could pull off looking like a sexy baddie.

Everyone can tell the difference between a skinny girl with big tits and a fat girl who looks even fatter because of their tits

If people are mistaking you for fat when you wear loose clothes its probably because you are. Skinny girls with big tits just look skinny in loose clothes unless you have a weird view on women's bodies. You can tell if they're skinny by looking at arms, legs, face, etc. If you have fat arms, face, etc and loose clothes make you look even fatter it's because you're probably fat then

Any store/brand recommendations for office attire suited for small curvy figures? I have trouble finding the fine line between fitted and skin tight when shoping for professional attire. Anything that's too loose makes me look frumpy and too tight makes me look slutty. So far I've been sticking to turtle necks with some type of fitted dress pants but want to switch it up. If it helps, I used to buy my clothes at a store called dynamite but they've been phasing out their office attire and I haven't explored other brands yet.

Ntayrt (obviously) but I have big boobs and you're absolutely right–certain garments will make you look bigger. Particularly ones that are looser because they'll be tight around your chest and then drape loosely over the midsection making you look wider/bigger. I also have a slightly inverted triangle body shape which I feel like looks worse with looser tops. And I'm near underweight but this is still one of my issues.

To the other anon who wanted to know about minimizing, the best bet is a minimizing bra that actually fits or if you dgaf about breast tissue migration then really tight sports bras. You're not going to find a best-fitting bra that minimizes your chest unless your boobs are naturally shallow to begin with. If you're projected by default then keep in mind that shallow/minimizing bras will just smoosh your boobs to flatten them into a wider, shallower cup. You'll probably have some fit issues. I used to be self-conscious of my body, wore sports bras for the longest time, and now that I own proper fitting bras (Panache, Freya, the like) my boobs are more projected than ever in clothes. I think it's a small price to pay considering I used to wear 32 bands bc it was the smallest VS had but now I'm indisputably somewhere between a 28 or 30 which isn't sold in many affordable major retailers.
I've heard shallower bras like the Fantasie Rebecca Spacer bra have a minimizing effect but haven't tried it out myself. Maybe give that a shot?

Thanks for the advice and understanding nonny. A well fitted bra definitely helps, the more lift and separation the better. I've wanted to try minimizers but they're hard to find here.

Tbh this will probably kill your boobs but the most effective method by far was to use an XS sports bra from Nike. Something for high impact and possibly in a size smaller than what you should wear kek. It worked when a 28F in UK sizing and my boobs are definitely projected when supported. While the sports bra didn't make me flat chested, it held everything in to where my bf at that time was shocked when he first saw me naked bc I always wore sports bras which made him think my chest was on the smaller side. BUT it does give uniboob so that's not going to work for you I suppose.
If you don't want uniboob then you'll need something with a gore that 'tacks' to separate the boobs–this is typically not found in sports bras that will minimize your boobs. So my advice is to try looking for bras that are advertised as minimizing. T-shirt bras are generally good as well, except I wouldn't recommend Freya's Deco Vibe. I'd use bratabase if you want to check reviews on how the bra fits and whether it'll work for your shape.
Oh btw I just checked Herroom and it seems that they're having a sale atm, so try looking there and let me know if it helps.

What do you think about wearing shorts with leggings / thighs? When I was much younger I ran into an opinion it's a no-go and shows complete lack of taste and somehow it shamed me into never dressing like that anymore, but honestly looking at it I can't really see anything wrong with the look.

Meh. It just reminds me of a very specific phase of tumblr/lookbook indie fashion from the early 2010's. I don't think it's ugly necessarily when styled right but it's a very dated look. If you have skinny legs you can probably get away with it.

So I've read the book, which was a lot clearer than any of the info I've seen online about it (and seemed way less about putting people into boxes). For me personally, I liked the idea of dressing to harmonize with/celebrate what's unique about your body, rather than breaking it down into parts you have to camouflage. For example, I'm pretty curvy and petite, and I look 10x better in the types of fabrics that kibbe suggests for Rs, especially if I stick to cuts that softly hug my figure or have ruching/draping to emphasize my curves without adding a lot of excess fabric. I used to try to make my legs look longer and minimize my chest, and I think that dressing for the body as a whole (which is a big thing kibbe talks about) looks a lot nicer and has made me more confident.

Similarly, I have a friend who is a kibbe FN and I think she dresses really perfectly for it and looks amazing. She's very tall with pretty broad shoulders and I think it's very common for women with builds like that to be insecure and try to dress in ways that hide it, but she looks great in outfits like pic related that show off her height and strong shoulders.

I think that the celebrities and descriptors like "elegant lady" or "Spitfire chic" are mostly just fun and there to help you embrace the unique strengths of a specific type. Overall though, if you're good looking and have a good eye for style, you don't really need kibbe imo.

I see so many "is this dated" posts but the truth is that it's just about your appearance and not the clothes. The difference between "dated" and "style" will always be whether you look hot in the clothes. If you're conventionally attractive in some way, you can wear stuff from whatever era you want and look cool. Of course you'll need to pick pieces that are good looking so you do need to coordinate an outfit that is a good incarnation of the past trend you're replicating but other than that… yeah you just need to be hot.

In most cases it just doesn't add anything interesting to the look. When it comes down to it though, the nylons aren't going to make as much of an impact as the rest of the clothing, styling and accessories that make up the look. For example I don't like the outfit in that pic, and it's not really because the woman is wearing tights with shorts, but because all the other elements remind me of an era in fashion that imo is very dull and frumpish. If I saw someone wearing this today I would assume that she's not interested in looking stylish, she dresses to blend in with the crowd and go unnoticed, which is completely fine if that's what you're aiming for.

What the fuck even looks good anymore? The last time I cared about dressing nice, I think arthoe tumblr was just getting big and skater skirts were still a thing. Looking at what fashionable people my age (early twenties) are wearing now, I feel like I must have fucking Rip Van Winkled through a major shift in trends. Lately I've been seeing a lot of Y2K/late 90's larp and extremely drapey neutrals with weird sandals or platforms, neither of which really appeals to me. Maybe I'm just being salty because I don't know what's going on anymore, but a lot of current trends just look 3edgy5me.

there is this girl on tumblr whose style i became a little bit obsessed with, she shaped a lot of fashion blogging/posting microtrends on ig down to the way she poses for her "out and about" walking photos, panning down and capturing herself in motion like a candid photo by a friend. i wish i could remember her url, she had timeless and elegant sartorial looks which focused on crisp or breezy materials, luxurious fits and slightly andro silhouettes. it looks effortless but is kind of the pinnacle of style to me
the trends we are seeing right now feel cheap, gaudy, and like they will date themselves within less than two years (being very generous about it). neon checkers, cheap polyester garbage, egirl runoff, wanting to signal some element of self expression without any real self expression, regurgitating tiktok stars who are bastardizing dead subcultures with aliexpress UO-core nonsense… revival of a revival of a revival of a dead trend, cycling between 60s-70s-80s to, now, 90s-y2k nostalgia endlessly.
anyways, i think what "looks good" now isn't any of that, but also isn't the reactionary "who cares? i give up." normcore aversion to it. i think what looks good is something chic but simple, personal but effortless, it's hard to define it without sounding more pretentious than i already do because i think it comes down to refining and understanding your personal tastes, what works for you, and investing in quality pieces for something very wearable that will stand the tests of time. i think the only "trends" anybody should really subscribe to are personal trends from season to season, nothing to do with the lowbrow cultural runoff that people our age get sucked into and overpay for (like paloma wool's gaudy tiktok-core sweaters which don't even use enough natural fibres to warrant the price…)
i'll see if i can find that girl's sm handles for you because i think you would love her.
TLDR i guess i think we should mine from various decades (or even centuries), subcultures, art scenes, cinema stills, dead trends, things that we have never even really seen executed well, divorced from the "millennial marketing racket" (do you remember that article from the cut about the way that millennial design markets first, designs the product itself as an afterthought, and the approach to design we have right now is going to look garish as fuck and awful in a decade? it's all just manufactured to look good on a screen and entice you to buy subpar products. anyway.)
i think everyone should create their own approach to style, design, home decor, art that isn't beholden to all of this. whether that be timelessly chic or authentically quirked up. sorry for sounding insufferable…
i think everything that really takes off and becomes a viral meme trend is basically a marketing psyop. think about what will look and feel great in 5, 8, 10, 12 years. and what you love, feel attracted to. how you can make that work for you (body type, overall features, budget, lifestyle, the way your tastes are realistically going to change over time).

Wardrobe essentials are going to depend on the function you need your clothes to serve in relation to your lifestyle. You mentioned that you want to avoid looking either too formal or too juvenile, but what kind of looks are you drawn to? Without visual references "chic" is a bit vague. If your goal is to look stylish and not just decent, then creating a mood board of outfits that you like would help you develop a sense of your aesthetic values. Pic rel is something that I would include in my mood board because I like 60s/70s mod fashion and it works with my lifestyle.

A cool wardrobe requires you to know how to style clothes and put them together. A capsule wardrobe with some interesting accessories(just look up indie shops, etsy, local artists etc) might be better suited for your needs.

I'm not sure if you can have all at once anon. Cool and chic are kinda contradicting and it's tough to incorporate a lot of interesting designs while also mixing and matching easily (depending on what you think are interesting designs I guess). I agree with other anons saying that a capsule wardobe may be fitting for you.

To build a capsule you need to have a starting point to work from. Like you have to start with something to match other things to. Treat it like pizza and ask questions in order - classic or thin crust? (Where you're at right now is like chicago pizza mess pie). And by crust of course i mean shoes, since shoes are probably the thing you will have the fewest of (2-3 pairs or so vs 4-5 pants/skirts and 5-10 tops, which are like the sauce options and toppings respectively) - so it's the easiest place to start, and once you have the shoes you have a direction to go in terms of looking for other stuff. Shoes set the tone in other words. So from pic, what kind of shoes are you feeling? Just google the names and scroll through images. They're all valid so it's literally just what speaks to you, that's all that matters.

Also if i had to make just one suggestion, and this works with ypur current closet, find/buy a tan or dark-color tweed or plaid professor type blazer, and a pair of loafers, oxfords or saddle shoes in a brown/tan color. With those shoes you can just wear the blazer over your graphic tees and people will think you're kinda cool. It's kind of a classic hipster look (a lot of this look in portlandia) and maybe a bit girlboss but it works very well with graphic tees.

what are your preferred ways to add long sleeves to dresses? i just bought this dress that i love thinking i could make it work with some sort of long sleeve shirt underneath but it ended up looking bad. i know cropped cardigans exist but i’ve also seen interesting cropped mesh tops/shags/jackets on other looks. not sure what would look good with this specific dress though

because you mentioned bersha amd pull & bear ill assume youre in Europe.
Ive had the most luck with youtube. If you care about your countries fashion, watch videos from you country/ in your native tongue but if you also come from a country with bad taste, you can also watch in english. Try to focus on UK or europe based youtubers because ive noticed american, austrlian, singapore etc brands are either not here or dont have the same stock in.
If youre not set on staying in trend, watch older youtubers 30+, 40+ crowd. They often have more fashionable but not newest trend content.
Also look up capsule wardrobe, or wardrobe essentials videos just to get an idea.

Once you start being redirected on youtube for similar interests, sometimes you can find your style or brands better. I ended up on abercrombie hauls (from 40+ a fashion youtuber, despite being mid 20s myself)and i discovered i like a lot of their stuff.

I've only found femalefashionaddvice subreddit for specific items, but it seems like 90% of the users are from America and often suggest US based brands. They were helpful when ive asked but in the end finding a nice leather crossbody from an american company that charged $50 for shipping and it didnt include VAT, wasnt that helpful…

It looks the material is really light so that makes layering a bit tricky, if you wear a shirt underneath it has to be super light and form fitting so that it doesn't disrupt the lines of the dress. This is just an idea but if you really want to wear a mesh-style shirt underneath, you could take a pair of nylons and turn them into a crop top like picrel

bros do u have any tips on developing an actual style/wardrobe? all my clothes are super and shapeless (i literally just wear leggings and a huge zip-up jacket most of the time), and i haven’t really cared about how i looked until now. idk, i recently read a book called pretty honest which was pretty much just this lady giving the foundations of skincare, makeup whatever - like she made reason of everything of that made sense. and the book really opened up my eyes about how looking good isn’t some chore or something that’s only for particular people, but something fun and a way to make yourself feel better even if everything else is going to shit (you can have control over how you look if nothing else i guess). also, as retarded and autistic as this sounds, i’ve never really seen women openly expressing/ talking about attraction to men, and i’ve always felt uncomfortable with feeling attraction towards boys for some reason (maybe bc my dad’s always been really crazy abt keeping me separate from boys?) but this site really opened up my eyes to how it’s alright and normal to feel certain ways - so i think part of the reason i wanna look better is to look cuter i guess? idk

SO ANYWAY, now i want to put effort into what i wear i guess. the issues i’m having with getting into it is (1) idk why but i’m scared to stop dressing completely horribly, like every time i gets actually dressed nice for whatever event i get super embarrassed if someone compliments me and i’m worried how other people might react if i start dressing differently (even if it’s for the better) - so how can i stop with my way self-conscious thinking?, and (2) i’ve gained like ~30 pounds over the past year, and am pretty chubby - i mean i’ve always had issues with my thighs/arms but now they’re even worse - so i’ve always had issues (even before gaining even more weight) dressing myself properly without defaulting to my comfy homeless-person esque look, so any tips for finding the most flattering clothes for a chubby person (especially pants - i can never fucking figure out flattering pants)? if it helps i think i’m pretty much a pear - when i measure myself i get 36-28-43.

side-note: what are some cute places to get summer dresses?

anyways i don’t even know if i should post this here, but i don’t care and if i can’t it’s just gonna get deleted so that’s fine and i think this site is actually totally changing my perspective on many topics so thank u very much people! good night and thank uuuu!!

My style has evolved in relation to my interests, they provide a starting point where you can begin to consider what you think looks good and the image that you wanna get across. So what do you like? Are you into an alternative subculture that you wanna draw inspiration from? Is there a particular period in fashion that you admire? Do you wanna stand out or just look put together and on trend? Do you wanna accumulate more casual outfits, or clothes that you can dress up? I feel like these are pretty central questions when you're in the early stages of developing a sense of style.

You should probably just gradually start incorporating more 'dressy' items into your outfits until it's not jarring to see you fully dressed up. Eg rather than wearing a dress and heels, you wear a dress with flats and heels with jeans until you're comfortable enough to go for the combination. I've been dressing up my entire adult life and don't wear casual clothes much, but when I don't want to look like I tried too hard I take off accessories and jewellery, leave my hair out/unstyled and wear light or no makeup.

But tbh if you're just starting to develop a sense of style and build up a wardrobe you kinda need to accept that sometimes you'll look weird or bad or people won't react how you want. Nobody is born stylish, we all have blunder years and moments of shitty taste and cringe outfits, it's part of the process.

A small, shoe-related vent: I love the look of ballet flats but can't for the love of God wear them. I have pizza-shaped feet - super narrow at the heels, wide at the front - and flats either rub off the skin off of my heels or I just walk right out of them. And I tried those adhesive pads and heel grips and what have you, but they just don't work for me. Anyone else have this problem? I guess I should wear loafers instead but they don't look as feminine as ballet flats. Fuck my deformed feet

I don't understand what Americans mean by "petite", I thought it was referring to skinny and short women but I noticed that on some sites pants that are a 32/34 (0-2) are all put in the "petite" category.

The only authentic empire dresses I can find are designer. Too expensive. Cheaper variations (picrel) with a modified empire bust line and shorter hem are likely just as comfortable and definitely wouldn't stand out or look weird. They can look old fashioned (and in a bad way) when in floral print, but a plain one with sandals looks cute, usually.

>>188733
Um, I don't know, good question. Depends on the style, I guess. I've seen vintage bonnets shaped more like a cap or visor. But I think most old-style bonnets curved down at the sides while projecting far, so yes maybe they do limit vision. The one I posted wouldn't, but it also wouldn't protect from the sun either. It's probably why old school bonnets have never made a come-back, they look dorky. A lot of head accessories and hats these days are much smaller, worn lower on the head, or if big, worn tilted.

I've heard this from women who are into fashion history and it makes a lot of sense. I don't wear bras, most of my clothes are from the 60s and 70s so it works, but I also have dresses from the 30s/40s/50s and it just looks off without the added structure of a corset underneath. I'm going to invest in one at some point, something cute and a bit lightweight.

>>188749
I really like clothes that have decorative, corset-like elements which I noticed has been trending recently. Details like lace-up strings, sweetheart necklines, silky materials, or boning-like seams in the bodice similar to picrel can look dreamy and romantic. If it was made from a cotton fabric this blouse would look more pastoral and fit right in with the milkmaid trope that cottagecore draws inspiration from.

It's not a corset, that's an interesting pov though. What about it looks childish to you? The colours? I don't see it personally. The corset elements in the blouse indicate that it's made for a grown woman and not a child. Ruffles, animal print and pastels frequently appear in women's fashion too. I can't imagine a little kid in this outfit, it would look way too grown up. All in all I think it's a cool, bold look and the shades of purple complement her skin tone.

It's not hard to modernize vintage clothes, some day dresses from the 1930s can be styled in a way that makes it look young and modern. The jewelry and shoes you pair with it and the way you style your hair are going to determine the vibe. People would be surprised by the extent to which current trends like cottagecore are based on early and midcentury women's fashion.

>>189964
I agree with this. I make a distinction between lounge clothes, workout clothes, casual clothes for running errands, etc. I don't do it for other people, I do it because I don't want to look sloppy if I can help it.

Yeah I get what you were going for. Have you seen jeans from the brand Revice? They have styles like picrel where the waistband is cut in that sexy v-cut which I think is interesting. So no actual straps and more modest but you still get a similar effect. They also have a lot of patchy or color blocked jeans similar to your original image. Fair warning - I haven't purchased anything from them due to some dodgy reviews. They seem to order from China based on demand so sometimes deliveries take months or just never arrive. Although some people have gotten their stuff fine. Sucks because I'd like to order some things but it makes me hesitant.

So I've been browsing around for jewelry and I came across a surprising amount of expensive jewelry made from stainless steel. Think expensive as in 80 euro for a simple ring, 160-300 euro for a necklace etc. For that kind of money you can also buy sterling silver. In my mind stainless steel jewelry is cheap jewelry from China purchased on a summermarket or on aliexpress. Was I wrong and is stainless steel a material worth paying a lot of money for or are they just reselling aliexpress shit?

The high cost is probably due to the tiktoker thirst trap boy trend of a bunch of big silver rings.

The actual scrap worth of those things are nothing. Most silver rings scrap for like less than 20 bucks.
Check out a local antique store, thrift shop or if you have them, flea markets. They usually will have some antique booth or jewelery section of nice silver rings for 5-20 bucks. Unless its designer or a design you really love, its not worth it, buy silver.

I feel kinda stupid, but here it goes.
I'm fairly muscular + stout because of my last job, MMA/wrestling, and because I've been a fucking stupid meathead for the past decade or so, and I like to pick up heavy things and put them down when I'm stressed.
My personal taste is hyper feminine so I feel like a fucking idiot trying to dress up the way I'd like. Every other month I end up ordering myself a dress and then I put it on and look like bacon in shrink wrapped in plastic.
I think I dress okay, but I don't find it really true to myself and I'm fucking bored of it. I almost always end up resorting to something like picrel after larping as swole miss piggy for a spell before going out and then resigning myself back to my softcore butch librarian clothes. I guess I could try to get more femme accessories like ascots or bigger earrings, but I guess it's just annoying. I don't want to stop working out but I seriously have no idea what to do lol. it doesn't help that I feel so fucking short.

Girl, I wish I buff, stop degrading yourself.
But I also don't quite understand what you're asking. Do you feel the disconnect between the clothes that you want to wear/the clothes that look good on you? In that case, just wear whatever you want. Yeah, easier said than done, but if you think about it, clothing is just drapes for your body. In general, if your body is fat, you'll have to work around it with different shapes and fabric (if you want to appear slimmer), but if you aren't overweight/you feel like you don't have to hide some parts, just wear whatever you feel like. Seriously, that's most of what getting (ordinary, untailored) clothes to look good on you takes - being at a normal weight or having a good body. And people can tell a fit/curvy person wearing unflattering clothes isn't the same as a fat peron.
I have some pretty pronounced curves, but I always liked masculine styles and suits more. So after a while of wearing hyperfeminine things that I didn't like at all just because they fit my body and after getting over hating my figure, I said 'fuck it' and started wearing more androgynous styles, and I feel way happier now.
I guess it'd help to have some style icons whose body and style you feel closest to - mine is HBC in the 80s. I dont know if you know Reika but she's a japanese muslce idol and wears pretty hyperfeminine clothing a lot. Idk, check her out. Also, apologies if this was an answer to a quiestion you didnt even ask lol.

There's an episode of what not to wear with a bodybuilder - "Season 7 • Episode 23. A woman searches for a balance between bulging biceps and feminine fashion." Sometimes their specifc recommendations are a little wack/dated (this is from 2010) but worth watching.

No, and if that's your takeaway from the show, i don't think you actually watched it attentively or openmindedly. they literally gp to different stores every time, and usually multiple types, retail stores vs boutiques vs dept stores, within each episode so the people can see a variety of stuff and it doesn't get stale.

I will say, once you're out of the first 3 or so seasons (2003-5ish), the style gets more dated looking and there are a lot of very ugly dresses, but thats just what 2010 was like. And of course most things on the show arent still being made so you cant get the exact stuff (unless secondhand somehow), but the style stuff is usually pretty straightforward personal stylist stuff that remains true in terms of body type and personality etc, and its a fun portal into 00s adult fashion which i at least wasnt really old enough to experience fully at the time.

hey just saw this. here's the breakdown of what i ended up paying fee wise. i use dejapan, which i really prefer bc they don't make u load up ur account with money before buying, you can just buy directly from ur card.

spent like $180 total on yahoo jp for my 14 items (including domestic shipping). international shipping was like $80. got lots of clothes/somewhat heavy fabrics included, and i should've opted for the regular packing, but i decided to do double packing just bc, i think that also ended up making it heavier/more shipping cost. but whatever, for the amount of stuff i bought i was fine w/ the price.

the fees on dejapan are not bad at all imo, so long as ur buying lots of stuff, since atm international shipping is quite expensive, so if ur gonna buy, go all out.

>>188917
You are correct! You shouldn't really just wear a corset, you should be doing core exercises when you take it off. I work out 5-6 days a week in addition to wearing it. Also when you're wearing it, you have to almost train yourself not to just lean back against it, but rather to engage your abs for good posture. It's easy and lazy to let the correct do the work, really it should be a bit of a guide and a reminder to sit up straight. It's a tool, not a crutch.

It's not retarded, I've been thinking about this. Personally I hate pressure on my chest - that makes me anxious as it feels like my breathing is restricted. So I didn't get why women find corsets comfy like certain pro-corset youtubers. But people have different sensatory issues. I know that for example that some people with autism find tight pressure comforting. And I bet alot of ladies into historical clothing are autistic and have it as their special interest.

Late reply, but I’m also short/pear shaped and I don’t wear wide legged pants at all. They’re just way too unflattering and make me feel huge kek. High waist and boot cut pants look the best on me, especially paired with some kind of heel. I much prefer dressing for my body type than wearing trends. I think most people tend to notice if your clothes look good and fit well rather than if they’re on trend.

Help, I have a dress with a faux leather belt and I can't figure out how best to tie it. Two regular knots make it look really bulky and I don't want to tie it in a how, the material doesn't really lend itself to it. It's just one straight piece of leather, no buckle or rings or whatever.

How about a square knot like pic related (not a fashion pic obviously but you get the idea)? It will look a lot flatter than going with regular knots and it's a nice looking knot imo. You can also go with a carrick bend but the belt might be too bulky for that.

Without context of your normal work dress code, its kind of hard to suggest.
I have an office job which doesnt have a dress code but the bosses clearly prefer business casual over casual casual. During our heat wave i got a few pairs of bermuda shorts. They make womens chino bermuda shorts, which often come with belts that can look very work appropriate but also still fashionable. Ive been wearing them with embroidered tees which is still kind of cute without looking like im in my 50s. If i had to dress less casual i would probably go with a short sleeve button up.
I feel like bermudas look a lot better than longer jean shorts. I couldnt find any in person when i went shopping recently that werent skin tight skinny, trying to mimic bike shorts and or meant for older ladies.
I have a pair of longer dark wash jean shorts from Levi from a few years ago but they look more casual and frumpy.
I couldnt find any cute summer dresses lately that dont have any cut outs, slits or string straps or that are too sheer to be work appropriate.

No. 193726

>>193725
I see a lot of men wearing them, likely because their pants are baggier and would be falling down their ass if they didn't (thank god that look has mostly gone out of style). I typically don't since most of my pants are fitted enough not to have to worry about that, but I do have one looser pair that slides down my hips unless I wear a belt with it. I just wear a fabric Arcade belt with a plastic buckle since they're easy to adjust, washable and you don't have to take it off at the airport. They're not very expensive, I think I got mine on sale for $20-something. Although if you don't have any technical issues with your pants then no, you don't need one, it would just be for fashion's sake if you like the look.

If you dont need it, in dont think its that worth it.
Here, girls do wear belts with high waisted jeans. Its always tshirt, high wasited jeans, white nikes or adidas with a belt on.
Personally, 90% of the time im wearing a belt its at work and with (long) shorts. Either its when wearing slacks a bit to big for an interview or im wearing mens cargo pants because it was hot and it was the only work length approved shorts i could find when i was working food service.
I do sometimes wear a belt with high waisted jeans because two of the pairs i have look a bit weird and i feel a belt distracts from my long torso. I do have a nice leather belt but 9/10 times i wear a cheap thin braided belt i got from uniqlo becuase i dont have to worry about finding the belt hole and they work well with high waist, low waist and dresses.
I wouldnt recommend spending more than 20 bucks on a belt unless you wear it enough that you break a cheaper belt first.

Maybe it's helpful to ask people you know about what kind of colors they think look best on you? I feel like it's often easier to tell for other people than it is for yourself. I have the same issue with finding colors that look good on me and what I do know (that black hair looks absolutely garbage on me and that I suit dark brown makeup/clothes) is from other peoples comments mostly.
Chances are also that you don't fit any particular season and that's messing with your judgment. My hair is a weird mix of dark & ashy and bright & vivid, and my skin is very pale and cool in winter but more warm and gold-ish in summer. Every quiz on color season gives me a different result so I don't think I fit any particular one.

More of a fashion related rant, but anon upthread who loves Hill House got me into them because I adore smocked dresses and tops, and I always check to see if I can buy things cheaper preloved before shelling out for brand new. But people who have this brand's clothes on the secondhand market are insane, they do "rare depop" style markups on these things even on fucking ebay, even when the item is still in stock on the official website for 1/2 the price they are asking. Do these sellers on ebay and Mercari seriously think someone is going to pay $200+ for a used dress when they can buy it from the brand directly for $100-$125? I noticed a lot of Mercari sellers doing the same thing with the H&M wildflower collection which I hate because I have no desire to shop from H&M directly due to their practices and would have loved to take unwanted pieces off someone's hands, but I am not about to pay $80 for something that they got for $25-$40 and already wore.

The dress is really cute (love the sleeves especially) but I don't think you can wear it with flat/hiking shoes. It would look frumpy and could potentially be dangerous.
What are the others wearing? What is the bride wearing while hiking? Is the hike difficult?
If everyone is wearing goofy hiking shoes then I guess that's okay, though I think I'd still ditch the dress and go for a jumpsuit or a midi dress from a stiffer fabric so you minimize the risk of getting caught in rocks or shrubbery while hiking.
Picrel is the least ugly pair of hiking boots I could find, the dress is long enough to cover them while taking the pictures anyway. I think it would look pretty badass with a pantsuit or a jumpsuit and a fancy wool trench coat on top maybe?

Hope this is the right thread, but does anybody have experience with swimsuits like this bought from places like Yesstyle and Aliexpress? I think they're super cute (and I want a long sleeved swimsuit because my arms always get cold in the sea) but I do kayaking and other watersports so I need a swimsuit that won't rip, tear, or disintegrate after a few uses. Will the swimsuits hold up, or should I just go for an ugly but more durable rashguard from a local beach shop?

I can't speak for the ones that you mentioned, but Amazon has SO many bathing suit sets like that for around $18-$30 USD. With normal activity you'll get 2-3+ years out of them. This is especially true if you like it for the high waisted bottoms.
If not, then you'll have a harder time because pretty much all of them are high waisted. But you could also buy the suits just for the tops and pair another set of bottoms with it.
I personally do not like high waisted bottoms so I had to get some just for the tops. They remind me of a diaper. I hate how they look on me too, so I go with a low or mid cut. They're more flattering on me.

It can be expensive if you buy from established shops, you can find really good deals from regular people clearing out their wardrobes.

I also found all their bottoms to be very ill fitting.

Serious question: why do American men wear such baggy suits? Looks like pyjamas. Doesn't that defeat the point of looking smart? What makes an outfit look smart is the neatness, the tailoring. Is there a historical reason for this? US is an outlier on this. And don't say it's because the men are fat, because men are fat everywhere in the West and suits are still slim-fit.

No. 198414

I'm guessing it's because they think those suits are uncomfortable to wear. So they get them looser.

And also it's definitely a fat guy thing.

No. 198418

>>198414
So do you think suits became loose to look good on fat men then the style spread? Because skinny US guys wear baggy suits in European workplaces, making it doubly weird. Like, you're slim AND you're in a country with a different professional standard of dress, yet you're wearing a suit so big two men could fit in it? It looks hilarious to us, like a suit a comedian would wear.

I think it's a US fashion thing, up until maybe the 80s suits used to be wider and fit looser, because men had to wear suits more often in daily life and hence had to be more comfortable. Picrel is what was considered fashionable to wear in the 40s-50s. Also, if you remember Reviewbrah, he prefers pretty much the same type of style of suits (specifically not slim fit), and even though he said he wears a size or two bigger than himself, they still would probably look very wide on his frame. These are all just my guesses though.

No. 198426

That's not necessarily true. In the 60's, for instance, the European styles (Italy, for example) came to influence American styles. Men's suits became slimmer and cut to be more flattering. In the 70's, bellbottoms and big collars influenced suits, as well. The 50's just stuck out because it was supposed to be a period of economic growth for America, hence bigger suits with more fabric. That's why cars were massive, too.

yes, quite a while ago. they do have a made in uk limited vintage collection but those are even more expensive and worse quality that the og ones, as they didn't use the original materials. in general newer ones are harder to break in and more stiff, older ones are more supple and better quality. so it's absolutely worth it buying them second hand, if you can find them, if only for the fact that you won't have to spend time breaking them in.

No. 199783

>>199628
seems like those wouldn't be too awful for sweaty feet, as far as sandals go. you've got a strap around your ankle and a low heel so your foot won't slide too far forward, and it's closed behind the heel so it won't slide back. some slipping around is sadly inevitable in sandals unless you get something very practical like birks.

I dont know about youtube channels but my number one advice to preserve clothes is to not put them in the dryer. heat destroys. I put t-shirts in the dryer just enough that they won't get wrinkly. I also put in thick durable stuff like sweatpants that would take so long to line dry it isn't worth it. my second most important advice is to put anything strappy like bras or anything of a delicate material into garment bags while you wash them.
