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

I love reformation and love and lemons type dresses but they are so pricey. I am wondering if anyone found a way to buy similar dresses for much cheaper. I am not spending over 100$ for a dress I can only wear on occasions.
I tried to use depop but had no luck as people who sell their dresses second hand always want over hundred dollars for something they wore and rip the tag off?
Have you used asos and zalando before?
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.
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.

…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.
what is that supposed to mean? You are shopping for clothes online, you obviously have some disposable income, buy it your own damn self. Hey guess where you can get a good working used computer for dirt cheap?? ebay!! or literally anywhere!! A 5+ year old working laptop can be got for like $50 on ebay/craigslist with a little patience. If you keep spending money on depop instead of getting a real computer that's on you.
Funny that I hit the truth though…thank god for people who only use their phones to shop, everyone gets to gouge them blind cause they're so god damn stupid.

What kind of style are you into?
I shop a lot on Etsy and thrift online (but not on Depop like that other dumbass)
Maybe the fruit shape-theory is just flawed in the first place? I always thought it was strange to categorize all women's bodies in just a handful of shapes.>>183497
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.
>>183507>What kind of style are you into?
I'm trying to figure that out. I'm about to hit 30 and have been losing a bunch of weight that I gained a few years ago so I'd like to start caring about what I wear + dressing age-appropriately. Stuff like turtlenecks, flannel, more vintage-style dresses that cinch at the waist oh god I have no idea where to even begin>>183508
This is extremely helpful info; thanks anon! Are there any red or white flags to look for?
I had no idea people did this tbh. those bastards. I've personally had no issue with ebay, I also encounter less issues with ebay sellers over depop. no one on ebay has ever told me they can't post my item cause their bf broke up with them and they're depressed.

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.
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.
Thank you anon, I don't know why I'm so retarded I didn't think of just measuring where I'd like them to sit and ordering a bigger size. The only reason I didn't want to thrift is the pandemic, but that's also retarded because you would wash used clothes before wearing them anyway.>>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.

What brand is the shirt she's wearing/where could I buy one?

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

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.
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.

Could this skirt work with white sneakers and a simple, short sleeved white T-shirt? If I was going for a more leisurely look

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.
>>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.
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.

What are these types of jackets called and where can I get one?
It's called fashion because it's trendy. I'd expect people in fashion school to most closely follow current trends.
I think you've confused fashion for an art, it's not, it's just an industry.

If you wanna wear sneakers I'd recommend high top converse. A white top would work if you go for something with fine details, maybe a slightly cropped, form-fitting knit tee. I think a bit of statement jewelry like chunky hoop earrings and delicate layered necklaces would make it more interesting
