24 year old anon,recently lost a ton of weight and will need to buy an entirely new wardrobe
I'd like to dress more cute and feminine now that i have the confidence to. The only problem is I have no idea how to shop and would end up wearing stuff meant for middle aged women i got at kohl's and jcpenney.I checked out express and h&m at the mall because I thought it would be what younger people wear but all the clothes looked like influencer bbl shit
What sites and shops would you guys recommend?
Sorry for not being more clear. I like a well fitted blouse,skater skirts and complementary legwear
I generally prefer more simple and elegant designs as opposed to busier stuff.
I wish I could think of something more specific but I'm pretty clueless about what to look for
Ty. Price isn't too important. I'm willing to spend more but not designer prices >>205383
Last I went to a "by the pound" store, we don't actually use pounds here so I wasn't aware of how much (or rather little) a pound was. The clothes I wanted, just a bag of them, after weighing came up as 50 fucking euros. I didn't buy them lol.
I feel like thrifting only works in specific areas. Estate sales aren't a thing here as far as I know, I've never heard of them anyway.
how long did you spend looking? this is about the cheapest you can possibly get clothing for, so there's really no answer other than to spend time lookong for stuff that is worth buying.
The first time I went, I spent about $100 on some very big sacks that probably weren't entirely worth the money, but I still got some nice things & stuff for my sisters that they liked. If you're selective and spend at least 3-4 hours looking through everything in the place, and only buy what ypu really like, it's a very good deal. A tip is to ask an employee when they bring out new stuff, so you can get first pick when they do. Depending on how busy it is there may be some competition.
These places, aside from vintage-wholesalers, are where depop and ebay sellers get their stuff. If you see a hipster dude in a vintage sweatshirt lounging & waiting for the new stuff to come out, that there is a depopper.
I think I just went into a bad overpriced store because I only got like 5 or 6 items. If it's by weight it doesn't really matter what exactly>>205498
I get right? It was a store in the capital city of my country and as I said we don't even use pounds here, makes me wonder if the "by the pound" was just to bait people in.
Yes I know and I always had a small amount of clothes from growing up poor and having a hard time finding clothes my size to this day and never cared. But I feel like most of my clothes aren't formal enough for my job so I probably have just 3 tops I can wear that don't make me look unprofessional. I'm not really sure how to explain what I mean here but basically I feel like I went from having a small but decent amount of basic clothes to having to wear almost the exact same shit everyday like some American cartoon character.
Nowadays there's way more choice for someone my size that aren't just jeans with holes and basic but comfy large tshirts but it's almost only on online stores for most widespread brands available in my country so I can't try anything and have to order clothes and hope I won't have to return anything. I don't want to buy anything that I'll never wear just because it's my size by some kind of miracle because it happened a lot these past few years and I regret wasting money like that.
I mean, different clothes weigh different amounts. If you tried to buy 5 big leather jackets or wool coats they could easily be 5 or even 10 pounds each. Where I went, textiles are $1.50 a pound, so that would be 10 pounds per item x 5 items x $1.50 a pound = $75. So that kind of stuff, big heavy wool & leather, is still going to be more expensive. But it'll be like 30 cents for t-shirts, $1 for flannels and maybe $3-4 max even for the heaviest knit sweaters.
The price although good is a secondary perk anyway - what matters is that, when they bring out a fresh load of stuff, these are donations that nobody has looked through before you. That means that you have a real chance of finding genuine gems. I've found a genuine Giorgio Armani vintage sweater myself, some genuine vintage Christian Dior, several vintage Starter jackets, etc, but it really really does take a lot of looking.
I've met some sweet old retired ladies at these places who go there every day and actually make quite a lot selling vintage & designer on ebay. Sharks but you would never guess. If you make friends with them they'll just start giving you nice stuff, they actually find way more than they want to bother with because they're there day in day out. Also important is going there when it's not busy, this means early in the morning and weekdays especially.
I can't speak to your specific country's situation, of course.

So, I counted what I have in my closet, here's what I have:
>6 pairs of jeans, there's two pairs I barely wear anymore
>2 pairs of trousers that aren't jeans
>6 pairs of shorts but it's been a while since I wore any of them because I hate shaving and waxing my legs
>2 sweat shirts
>11 sweaters but I need to get rid of some of them because I've worn them too much. Maybe I'll use them as pyjamas though.
>9 blouses, but not all of them are my size so I should think about selling some of them
>17 tshirts, mostly graphic tshirts and crop tops so they don't look professional no matter what. I can't wear them at my job but they're great for summer though
>two basic black dresses for summer and a fancier one I bought when I was invited to a wedding, but I almost never wear them
>3 black blazers with very different cuts
>3 skirts I absolutely never wear
>one denim jacket, one leather jacket, one army jacket, one cute jacket for when it's rainy and a really worn out coat I need to replace soon
>1 pair of sandals, 2 pairs of high heel boots, 1 pair of really ugly flat boots, 4 pairs of sneakers
I plan on giving some clothes I didn't count here to some stores that can give me coupons so I can buy new clothes for less. I also made myself a list of things I should get to complete my wardrobe. Most of what I have looks very basic and I'd say half of the things I have are at least 5 years old. Would you say I have more than enough clothes or I could buy more stuff?
>>205706>idk why you say you have little clothes when you have 17?! Shirts.
I knew I had a lot of tshirts compared to the rest but I didn't notice it was that much, I'm surprised too tbh. I accumulated them over the past 10 years because my size never really changed and on top of that there are some tshirts I completely forgot about and only found them recently hidden in my closet because I didn't put them where they should have been. On top of that I usually grab the first things I can get in my room so there are tshirts I like and wear way more than others so I thought I had like what, 10 tshirts maybe?
I feel like I should redo that list once I get rid of all the clothes I don't want to keep and once I bought things I'd like to wear more often.

i've lost 50 lbs but am still somewhat fat and losing weight.. i really need some tips/tricks for how to look thinner on my way down. i'd also love any examples you have of kinda bigger girls who dress well so that they look thinner/look good still, without looking like a frumpy grandma in the process :( thank you so much.(:()
Dont layer clothes is number one, second is if you have a big belly then wear form-fitting pants and baggy shirts and vice versa if you are bottom heavy
Third is to not try to hide your figure because at most times you will just look like a blob

Yesterday I went shopping and I wanted to buy a pair of skinny black jeans, something as basic as possible, and no matter what I tried everything was either too small but the size right above was way too big, too big despite trying the smallest size available, or the legs were too long while the jeans were too tight around the waist. I hate the fashion industry so fucking much. And because of covid some stores can't let anyone use their changing rooms anymore, and if I order clothes online I'm worried I'll get a wrong size and I'll have to pay to ship clothes back. On the other hand I noticed I have an easier time finding tops my size, mostly because I can finally find bralettes my size that aren't made for 10 years old girls so I don't have to just wear completely opaque clothes anymore, and it's easier to find tops with normal collars.

idk your budget anon but look up solovair if you're looking for something that'll last. it's the company that made the original doc martens or something. the quality is much better than the crap dr martens churns out today
this is way too generalized if you want good advice. what's your price range? what size are you? a nice dress and a coat is really all you need for this, but you can wear a pantsuit or just some nice slacks and a blouse.
you could pick the most formal piece of clothing you have and try to build an outfit off that.

- pair with a complementary neutral heel and a loose crop jacket or shrug made from light material so it doesn't overwhelm the look

How would you style a lime green top? I bought a knit top in a similar color, on impulse but now I'm not sure what to pair it with. I was thinking light wash wide leg jeans or maybe a skirt in some bright color like purple.

the jojo image reminded me that clothes in bright neon colours look really good when they're paired with neutrals, kind of like an accent colour
khaki, neon lime green, and white together kinda make me think of tennis, but it's still a solid color combo and you could play up the preppy vibe with a blazer and a pleated skirt in light neutrals or something along those lines. or, depending on the fit of the top, you could go for a more edgy, Y2K-revival fit like your idea with the wide-leg jeans or some other wide-leg trousers made of a more structured material and chunky platforms/sneakers. i'm not sure about pairing it with purple, though if you want to go that route you could look at 60's mod fashion like picrel for inspo (ignore the filename lel)

Thanks for the advice nonna! And 60s mod is exactly what I was thinking with the purple suggestion, I love how colorful and ridiculous trends were back then.
your best bet is going to a department store like macys or saks. $150 is kind of low for a coat and shoes, you can easily get a nice dress for $50 but the coat and shoes will be the most expensive part of the outfit. I've gotten nice coats at target before but I'm not in the US anymore so I can't speak for the selection now. Check out TJ Maxx or Marshall's too - the only thing with these stores is that you arent guaranteed to find anything, expect to leave empty handed.
I would suggest that you go into a physical store to at least try on different kinds of dresses to see what you like to wear. You dont have to buy anything, you can try on some different things and then go home and order something similar online.
also if you aren't used to wearing heels, def don't choose this occasion to be your newest attempt at it. just get something comfortable.

all my examples are from downton abbey but the costuming is fantastic so. 20s is all about breezy fabrics, pleats, and embroidery. look for beading, sequins, embellishments and choose fits that are loose on your frame. the fashion of the era was all about that long drop waist torso, the body silhouette was long and slim, tall and boyish. no hourglass waists here - that's what your grandma wore. lots of eastern influence on the fabrics and colors of the time, deep red, navy, drapery. a little bit of military influence as well here and there, especially on hats and gloves. big shoulders.

Literally just wear longish dresses with big collars and a lightly belted waist, and mary jane shoes. Hate to shill cheap chinese goods, but alien kitty on aliexpress has many such dresses. I find that hair and makeup matters more when it comes to looking 1920-ish.

this is completely impossible to answer without seeing you. but your best option is to choose a feature you like and highlight it. i chose pics of gwendoline christie for an example because she is very tall and not especially curvy. she usually emphasizes either her legs or her shoulders. but the biggest thing anon is that when you really like your clothes, it shows.

I also liked this advice:>Fortunately, the times when stylists recommended that all full-figured women wear black clothes are gone. Nicki Minaj shows her response to the stereotypes of the past.
>Don’t wear any patterns or animal prints, instead wear solid colors, bold, oversized silhouettes, and as few decorative elements as possible (no fringe, bows, or other stuff like that). And of course, any look like this goes great with a belt.
huh is it considered having big feet if they're proportionate to my height? I'll keep wearing sandals regardless but I'm curious

This may be good advice, but it seems a little unfair to compare these two women with clearly different bodies as examples of a full figured woman dressed wrong and right. The woman on the left is
wearing an unflattering outfit, but I'm not sure it would be fixed by putting her in what Nicki is wearing there.

I’m tired of wearing tshirts. What should I wear nonnies? No I’m not a troon I’m just tall.
File: 1634614486412.png (823.95 KB, 908x1462, graphict.PNG)
I agree with some of the other anons here. Tucking in your shirt will help make your legs look longer and give you a defined waist.
Before you try and completely redo your wardrobe, I always think it's good to make use of what you have. Try layering an oversize flannel or denim jacket over a t-shirt and pair it with bottoms of your choice, as long as you don't match the color of your jacket to the color of your bottoms you'll be fine. It might help you get a sense of what sort of style you'd like to follow. Picrel is an example of a way to wear a graphic tee that's a little more exciting than just jeans, but it may not be your style.
You should try picking shirts that are more your size and not as long or loose fitting, because like the other anon said it makes you look kind of stumpy. If you want, you can invest in some fabric scissors and try trimming some of the shirts you have (follow a tutorial online). Also you mentioned your jeans are 5 years old, you should probably invest in some new, higher quality ones. I recommend getting something without a print or pattern on it (like regular old denim) so you can match it with your tops better.>>210045
You should wear safety shorts or leggings underneath so your whole ass isn't out. If you still feel uncomfortable maybe try skirts with longer cuts.
Just start reading. Pick up some books on brands you're interested in or read Wikipedia. Vogue has great resources for runway shows, with a gallery of images and a short article. But I agree with the other nonny
, making a thread would be a great option.
Thanks for the feedback my nonnies!! If there’s anything else just let me know I’m open to it. >>210093
I’m laughing my ass off because your comment is so ironic in more ways than one.
IATA who said skinnies were dated and I didn't mean to imply that nonny
should go with what's trendy. Skinnies were really trendy back then and nearly everyone wore them even though they aren't flattering on most women. I agree she should focus on how it works with her figure plus how comfortable she feels in them rather than what's in style. Thankfully different leg cuts are always available no matter what's on trend. The rise gets more complicated since most brands are stuck on high rises atm, but being tall she has the benefit of any rise working for her.

Why not try a dress or a skirt instead? Kinda hard to make mom jeans exciting. But you could go for a fun sweater like picrel.
