I wear any of these two, either a comfy jumpsuit or a short dress. You will want short stuff because changing rooms can turn into a disgusting mess, so long dresses/pants will be a bitch to put on. You will also feel too tired to deal with denim anything, buttons, fliers, or scratchy fabrics, so make sure it’s cotton clothes and with drawstrings or something you can just put on without struggling.
It’s better to go to the beach with a swimsuit in white or light colors because exposing yourself to the sun wearing dark colors can be harmful for your skin or at least I read that once and now I’m schizo about it
Wear sandals, they’re more comfortable than anything with socks, keep a cap or hat around, lots of sunscreen and water. Also don’t forget to pack extra underwear or even extra clothes and towels, I think it’s better to keep a claw clip around instead of hair ties because putting on a hair tie with wet, salty hair makes me want to kill myself.
I hope you have a good time, nonnie

Thinking about buying second hand Lacoste pieces. What do you think of the brand and did Lacoste also develop a shit/trashy reputation in your country? I feel like preppy prenium brands like Ralph Lauren suffered from the logomania of the mid 2000s and now have a chav brand rep

Nayrt and sorry if this sounds like grandma fashion advice but personally I'd go with any sun dress and wear a lightweight cardigan or one of those shrug/bolero things.

Yeah I'd go with either using a cute cardigan/shrug or maybe going for something a little boho with those puffy peasant type sleeves (sorry I know that's probably not the right terminology). Like pic related but obv not in white

I'd wear a cute longsleeve summerdress. Maybe a lace one or a low back/cut out back if you want something more fancy. Dress it up with a nice pair of heels or sandals, a small crossbody purse or clutch and nice jewelry and you're all set. The weddings I've been to were all on the more casual side though so probably don't take my suggestions if your is very fancy/formal.

I’m back, picrel is a screen shot of some of my pins. Am I too old for these styles? If so, how could I modify them to be more age appropriate? I like the velvet dress as too but my bf said it looks like something a high school goth girl would wear but idk if that’s a bad moid opinion and should be disregarded.
Other than the dress, you could buy the pieces for these outfits basically anywhere. I see a gray plaid mini skirt, black shorts and skinny jeans, red flannels, and plain sweaters, turtle necks and t-shirts. Even the jewelery and shoes are literally things you could find at target or on amazon.>>252276
It sounds like you're overthinking it nona. The most important thing is that jewelery should match the other jewelery you're wearing. If you want to bring in colors or design elements from your outfit you can, but you don't have to. The only other thing I can think of to watch out for is making sure necklaces don't clash with the neckline of your top.

Is anyone here 18/19 and remembers using the internet for the first time and watching YouTubers like mylifeaseva, or seeing 'tumblr aesthetic lookbooks 2014' everywhere? I remember it was like my first time on the internet and all of the clothes looked so pretty and aesthetic. I really wanted to dress like a cool american/californian girl but i was too young to buy my own clothes and pick what I wore.
Now I'm old enough to choose my clothes, I really want to wear like
>'boho' clothes, like tassled cardigans/boots and tatty denim shorts
>skater dresses with long cardigans
>shorts with tights
Yeah I think I just want to dress like a millennial substitute teacher kek
I'm 21 but I had the same experience (bethany mota my beloved)
, and I've been feeling nostalgic for that style of 2013 clothing too, it was comfy. I wanted to get ugg boots so badly this winter but they're so expensive. Shorts with tights are also the best, luckily they never went of fashion where I live
I love ugg boots so much! I got a floral skater skirt second hand and i think with tights and ugg boots it would be maximally cosy and girly. And shorts with tights should never go out of fashion, neither should long cardigans and those chunky knit scarves.
I’m pretty sad that youtubers like Bethany mota and mylifeaseva won’t make the same stuff again, all carefree and idealised aesthetic videos, but this year I definitely want to emulate an ‘i love fall <3’ pinterest board from 2014
Solid dark colors instead of the plaid/tartan patterns. More structured pieces instead of the slouchy jacket. Longer skirts that hit above the knees instead of mid thigh. The dress is cute, but I’d forgo the lace and perhaps either get one with a longer skirt or longer sleeves. Go for items with good quality material, something that looks thick and heavy rather than artificial and shiny.
Why not ask your moid what he’d be interested in seeing you wear and use that to gage if he has any fashion sense or an idea what you like. If he doesn’t, disregard and wear whatever, he may not even notice the outfit change. If he does it could be fun to dress each other up.
Ultimately it doesn’t matter, wear what makes you happy and what you can afford and ideally if you can the best advice for a wardrobe that looks mature/put together: get your things tailored.
The dress is a bit teenagery but everything else is fine. Disagree with >>252439
you don't need to wear ~structured~ pieces and skip on patterns(?!). You're only in your mid 20's, you don't need a ""mature"" wardrobe unless it's for your job, this is totally fine to wear in your free time.

I don't hate it conceptually. I can especially get down with the structured blazers/coats and double belts. I just wish they would stop trying to convince us that their fugly pleated ultra miniskirts are cute. I keep seeing them everywhere in celebrity photoshoots and it will never not look stupid
I hate the tiny skirt, it's so impractical for real life. I have a theory that there's going to be a massive tiktok trend of "upcycling" frumpy thrifted skirts into hideous two pieces like the one in the middle of the picture >>252493
posted, and like every other shitty tiktok upcycle, they'll just wear it once and trash it.

I may be misinterpreting what you mean by romantic, but couldn't you just wear a black bikini with some extra ruffles? I think it looks cute and feminine but not too much like lingerie. If both the bikini and coverup had a lace or crochet design it may be too much. I'm also not a huge fan of overly intricate swimsuits because of the weird tan lines you can get (although that doesn't stop me from wearing monokinis).

What would you call this type of person?
They're usually wearing "Smart Casual" clothing. Their wardrobes consist pretty much of basics and classic silhouettes. I would call them normies but it just doesn't sound right if you know what I mean. also they aren't as cheap
this is OT for this post but still relevant to the thread I think, but how to avoid falling into the fashion victim
trap of your clothes wearing you? I want to wear some really outlandish shit but still want to look good
File: 1648879763086.jpeg (128.26 KB, 853x1280, 643B35F2-1F5F-4356-BE59-7FF701…)
Nonnies I know this is pretty basic but what would be a cute way to style it. I figured it as a bit of a nod to my weeb days with the sailor neckline. So while my initial reaction is to put it with some basic bitch mom jeans I sort of yearn for something more youthful. (Tbh want to be called Unironically kawaii by a guy I’m talking too) but don’t want to be troonish or inappropriate
File: 1648880623944.png (303.54 KB, 372x349, 47328974302745.png)
I think flowy, pleated maxi skirts with this sort of loose-fitting sweater are cute. I wouldn't pair them with the crazy stilettos this girl is wearing though, just some cute flats or a kitten heel.
File: 1648882228075.png (634.17 KB, 628x440, 754074398535832.png)
I think there are a few aspects that help people avoid this. >Fit. Clothes should flatter your body and not look like a pile of hand-me-downs you threw on. Be picky about how things lay on you, have something tailored if you love it but it doesn't look right at first. Loose/baggy styles are fine so long as you can still tell you have a body underneath them.>Accessories. When you're wearing a loud outfit, to avoid that being the sole focus wear jewelry that also draws attention to the hands, face, neck, etc. >Makeup. I'm never going to say women have to wear makeup but it can help make your face pop where it may otherwise be washed out. You can choose just one feature to emphasize and pair with your outfit like eyeshadow color, lipstick, blush. >Hair. Don't let it be an afterthought and think about how it pairs with your outfit. Wearing your hair down when a major focus of your outfit is your top's collar, for example, can take away from its effect.
I feel like Indian fashion is a great example of this. A lot of Bollywood stars wear extremely colorful, vibrant, busy prints and patterns, and while it's a lot, I think it usually works. They typically use a lot of makeup and accessories, but even when they don't, they tend to look good because everything complements their body and they look well groomed/put together. Just remember that whenever you wear something unconventional it will always lead to strong reactions, many positive but others not so much. If an outfit makes you smile and feel confident that's all that really matters.

I'm like 1 foot tall so this is a big problem for me. Keep in mind I am a very casual dresser, so this is relative. I hate Kibbe but I learned about how important fabric weight and draping can be through Kibbe. I've found that I look best and least overwhelmed with very drapey fabrics. Stiff and structured garments seem to "wear me." Also as soon as I am uncomfortable with any aspect of the outfit I know it will be "wearing me." If I am fully confident in it then I wear the fuck out of my outfit.
Another thing that helped me personally but by no means is a hard rule, is dressing for the area you live in/are going to. I tried a few things that I saw online that looked really cute and not out of place but when I tried wearing those fashions in my life, I was uncomfortable with the look. Think t-shirt and denim cutoff shorts paired with high heeled sandals (same vibe as picrel). This probably works for a lot of women but in my middle-to-lower-class area, I stuck out like a sore thumb. I mean I knew I wouldn't exactly blend into the background at the grocery store in heels, but I felt very, very uncomfortable which was a sign that the shoes were wearing me. It's taken a bit of that embarrassing trial-and-error but that's the nature of personal style and I try not to get too cringed out by it. If you have a more confident and boisterous personality, the heels might not be an issue for you as it was for me, so it's very personal. The way I remedied the situation was by toning it down a bit & buying a pair of like 1.5 inch sandals that give the same feel of grungey outfit + feminine shoes without making me feel self-conscious.
I'll post a pic of the first pair of heels vs. the second pair if I can find them bc the contrast between them is kind of hilarious. I feel like it's very difficult to gauge how I am going to feel in a particular LEWK or style until I try it irl, as opposed to being able to gauge it just by looking at photos, if that makes sense.
This isn't going to be true for everyone obviously, but this is how I've learned over the years not to let clothes wear me. I still deal with this issue every time I get dressed but it gets easier and easier over time.

LOL this is embarrassing but here is an example of the types of shoes that I thought I could wear casually (I was young ok?? And spent way too much time on Tumblr. This was a huge lesson learned kek) vs. what I can easily wear and feel cute in. I didn't really know that the first pair were like, clubbing heels, (I really like bright green kek) because my perspective was a bit skewed from looking at too many fashion bloggers who wear crazy shit regularly. The contrast of the two pairs is admittedly hilarious though. Now you see why I try not to cringe myself out of existance for wearing the green ones to the grocery store lol but it's a learning process and every failure is a new lessin learned. Eventually you will know from experience what kind of clothes you can wear and vice versa. This turned into a blogpost, my lord. I'll shut up now but that was an interesting question, >>253373
. This was part of my personal styling ~journey~; if you want to wear outlandish shit I say go for it and see how you feel! It's the only way. Maybe you will enjoy the looks and attention that your outlandish clothing brings! It's cool when you get comoliments from ither people who you think dress cool too.
Recently had an interesting experience ordering clothes online.
Found this brand that sews its clothes in Ukraine (https://www.lipinskaya-brand.com/en/
) and was a little intrigued. Debatable whether a Ukrainian sewing operation is any better than a Chinese one but I'm Ukrainian living in Norway so Slava ukraine and all that. I ordered a dress and a body totalling about 70USD.
this dress specifically - love a little over the top eastern european number. )
Then the war broke out and I just sort of assumed that those $70 ended up being a donation to the UKRAINIAN RELIEF FUND and I'd never see the goods, fine by me. A month goes by and I get a notification on my phone that there's a package waiting for me from Odessa, from some man named Alaksander. Don't know anyone in Odessa, but okay.
You can see where this is going. It was my order, sent from a private person, with the addresses written by hand. The clothes fit like they were made for me and have great stitching. Hate to say great customer service 5 stars would buy again but great customer service 5 stars would buy again.
Reading this back it sounds like a sponsored post but actually I wouldn’t recommend ordering anything yet, considering how Odessa just got its shit handed by Russia… Wouldn’t want Aleksander forced to fulfill orders under duress.
ntayrt but these are great posts and you perfectly explained the way I felt about clothes and my personal style for years now, something I was never able to express in words.
For me the area matters a ton too. A while ago I started experimenting with more outlandish eyeshadow. My uni is in a big city so looking like a freak there is not a problem at all and I feel confident. Commuting to it is a different story, since I live in a small boring town. I feel like a freak when I'm walking to the train station kek. The feeling of sticking out like a sore thumb subsided over time but it took a while.

This is killing me, I too was terminally on tumblr and thought I could pull off casual t-shirts and huge platforms. Except I was like 16 and 5'9". Tbh I still love the look, especially velvet platform sandals.
Wat? I’m aware those two pictures are not the most extreme, I was using them as an example of matching a single makeup aspect (lipstick in this case) to their clothes. That being said, they absolutely are more vibrant than the average western outfit. >very bright and intricate is the norm.
That’s the entire point I was making?

i would like to have a pair if im not too lazy to tie my shoelaces every day. im considering getting a pair of zip up front boots that are on sale but i wonder with the metal ornaments it wouldn't mesh with a wide variance of what i have in my wardrobe.. my other option are chelsea boots but those look like rainboots to me and hate how huge it looks when worn.

OT but picrel is one of my fantasy/impractical looks that I wanna replicate even if it looks like a painfully pretentious and 'quirky' thing to do. Maybe it's bc I love 90s alt rock but I love the juxtaposition of feminine clothes with combat boots like what Courtney Love used to wear on tour.>>256309
These are cute anon I like them a lot! If you don't like the detail of the zipper then there's plenty of similar looking boots on Asos.

20 isn't old at all dumbass nor an age to feel like you have no choice but to be wearing "mature" clothes at, you're not 38. I don't know how you can want to wear lolita or faerie kei or some shit and the thing that's keeping you from doing that is your age (which is only 20????) and not the fact it's ridiculous ott japanese fashion that will make you look like a clown anywhere outside Harajuku.
Anyway depends on what you define as cute. I'd say Freddy my love on yt dresses "cute" (and she's mid twenties I'm pretty sure) but that may not be your idea of "cute"

Can any fashnonita help me find a dress almost exactly like this if not this one? I'm not an avid clothing shopper and I'm going insane trying to find one like this that's of high quality not Amazon bootleg quality. I'm looking to spend in the $300-600 range preferably but I could go higher for the right one. It doesn't have to be the same color (though I wouldn't mind if it was or even if it had a nice nature-y print on it) but I really want this exact style of dress for my music festival wedding. It looks like it would flatter my body, be easy to not ruin it in a porta potty because I could just take it off, and it has the sort of hippie vibe that I like. Plus it doesn't look so fancy that I would feel the need to baby it all day long while trying to dance and party and I could even wear it again as a duster or something, but I could still dress it up nicely for my wedding pics. Feel free to laugh at my taste because I know this style is out of fashion right now but if anynonny could help me find something like this I would be so grateful! I searched for this image but all I could find was the photographer and model's names, no information about the dress.

The closest I found is a Chinese Ebay dress kek. But if you're willing to pay up to $700 and it's for your wedding why not commission a dressmaker on Etsy or something to make one? It's not a particularly complicated style and it would be made specifically to your measurements. Look for people with similar styles like https://www.etsy.com/shop/AYAsacredwear

Is anyone else constantly disappointed by more expensive brands? I just bought some Realisation Par dresses for $500 and they are nice, but the quality is just okay. I got a dupe from aliexpress for one of their dresses an honestly the dupe's material feels slightly better. The only more expensive things that I own that I feel are worth it are from Lululemon, everything else has been meh.
Your picrel is listed as $190 and 100% silk crepe, ouch. Even on the model it looks cheap and gauzy.
Can't believe this vid is 5 years old, but it was my first lightbulb moment of how to recognize quality without relying on prices or reviews.

Picrel is of the Alba dress dupe (left) and the right is the Isabelli dress I just got. I think the pattern is almost identical, and the dupe's material is a little bit thicker. It's also not the best quality ever but they are about the same

Definitely not a balaclava, which is a mask. This just seems like a neck warmer/gaiter that he pulled up over his head.

definitely not a balaclava expert by any means but if that's a neck warmer, once he pulls it back down around the neck it's gonna be terribly wide all around right? here's a ''balaclava'' i found on etsy that looks similar. maybe sellers use the term wrongly nowadays? i know originally it covers nothing but the eyes, yet….
Uh, interesting. Maybe you are right, and different people use it differently. About stretching the thing, maybe it could happen, but if it's very elastic it could go back to its original shape.
I guess that anon could look for both balaclava and neck warmer and find the better option for her!
Get them! They're extremely comfy and durable I love stomping around in mine.
On another note all this shein garbage needs to end I'll take dumpy jfashion over it at this point. It's as if they took the worst articles from mid 2000s LA public school trends and ran with it.

Looking for crit on a wardrobe I'm building. I already have some of the shoes, tops, and one of the dresses but most of it I haven't bought yet. I'm aiming for a wardrobe where I can mix and match a lot of different clothes and shoes. I've had a problem my whole life with buying so many non-matching clothes or just items I can only wear in one specific outfit. I split the clothes into neutral lights, darks, and atheliesure/basic girl shit: I hope that reads okay. I'm really new to this and I feel like it needs to be worked on. Any advice is appreciated! (Didn't bother with accessories/jewelry for simplicity sake but advice is also appreciated with that)
Good call on the flats! And thank you anon.>>258140
Almost all of it is axes femme, I'm pretty much cheating since all their stuff goes so well with each other lol. I'm addicted to them. Also just browsing the higher quality taobao shops and Liz Lisa.

Apologies for the Euphoria skanky glitter vomit collage but what’s this kind of set called?

I've been a neet for 3 months but I've applied for a job, if I get it I will treat myself to this beauty. It's so beautiful, I love the color and the details on the pockets.

Try searching bandeau skirt set. Specifically that's a ruched skirt. Picrel is kikiriki, check them out they have a lot of stuff like this

Anyone feel like their fashion choices don't match your facial/body aesthetics? I can't explain it well, but my face is very round and I have big but deep set eyes, kinda like Shelley Duvall and curly short hair. I could almost say I would look good in vintage styled clothes, but what I feel most comfortable in is really baggy black clothes and alt style makeup looks. But my appearance just doesn't work with what I want to go for, instead of that 'sharp' look I want I look awkward, like a deer in headlights. I also like extravagant clothes but I never feel confident enough to pull them off, which I know you'll look like you fit your style if you wear it confidently, I just don't want to look frumpy
said there are definitely ways to compromise on what suits you and what you like. but i know what you mean. personally i think i mistake anxiety about standing out for looking bad a lot of the time.

Gosh I was thinking about this the other day when I was wondering why is it that I can't wear shirts with bold, curvy or floral patterns on them (the attention goes immediately to the pattern instead of my face and I sort of…disappear in a way? Idk how much sense does this make). As I thought about this, I got this idea (and sorry if this is obvious kek I was happy with my revelation as a person with zero spatial awareness and no attention to visuals) that if a person's body and face contains a lot of straight lines (straight eyebrows, thin lips, long face, tall, or just thin body), geometrical patterns and stripes look better on them because they match their natural features. And the same goes for the opposite, if a person has a lot of softness and curvy lines in them (big, round eyes, big lips, fleshy body) then they should look good in floral prints. Obviously this is simplified and there are a lot of exceptions but you get the idea. Picrel is a fellow straight liner drowning in a floral shirt. I wonder if there is a subtype of alt style that has 'romantic' elements like lace or puffy sleeves or things like that that would harmonize with the roundness of your features?

Yeah. I like cutesy clothes and frills but it clashes with my sharp facial features. I feel like I look prettier in sexier clothes so I just try to mix the two. It's hard to find cutesy clothes with sexy silhouettes that doesn't look like gross kink shit so I try to accessorize in a subtly cute way or choose cute or romantic colorways. I don't really care if other people think it suits me, but I do care about what I see in the mirror. No matter how cute something looks on a model, if I wear it and look dumb I just can't enjoy wearing it. I look like a freak in something like picrel for example.

We sound similar anon, I have defined features more associated with a sexy look and while I haven't minded leaning into that sometimes I just want to look sweet and innocent. I think you can get away with cute clothes if you style yourself elegantly. Either a sleek bun or flowy hair. Makeup can also soften a lot by enlarging eyes, dewy blush, a pouty lip. You obviously won't transform into an uwu j-pop starlet but you'll come across more like a refined princess or mermaid which is still nice. I think Fanny Rosie is a great example, her looks are really not cutesy at all but she's beautiful and her more "womanly" features still work due to styling.

Pastel goth? You basically want to replicate some goth/punk characteristics like fishnets, spikes, (faux) leather, PVC, rivets, chunky accessories, colored hair, platforms but make it rainbow instead of all dark.

I also think raver, music festival, clubbie sorts of styles can get weird and psychedelic in a fun way. A lot of it is pretty revealing but it doesn’t have to be
, particularly if you wear outfits that make your waist look smaller in proportion

Not sure how strictly you wanna stick to the labels of emo or lovecore but here are some ideas I had for incorporating lovecore into your wardrobe, esp with an edgier twist. First just add more pink and red even if in the form of smaller accents. Both pair pretty well with black. It's easy to find a striped sweater with those colors. Also maybe opt for a cute heart sweater paired with something edgier like ripped/fishnet tights. I think the key for making this work is the juxtaposition between cutesy elements and edgy ones in the same outfit. Slips, esp with a lace trim, feel very reminiscent of old valentine cards for me and it's easy to find them in red. Red velvet skirts/dresses would also work well with this aesthetic. Heart shaped anything. To keep it simpler, you could just have a basic solid dress or plaid skirt but have heart shaped accessories like a bag or locket. There are also a lot of tights with heart designs. Just some ideas I had, hope this helps
Thank you nonna, this is adorable! I especially love the heart bag on the upper left, do you know where it's from? The tights and accessories should really help! I also love the red dress over the black top with the heart tights, super cute!>>258793
I hate saying it but it's the only name that implies what I mean lol.
Lol I’m in my mid 20s. I’ve heard the term lovecore for years, but it wasn’t very popular. And it typically wasn’t referring to clothing, just aesthetic pictures of old valentines and stuff like that on tumblr. Yeah I think stuff like cottagecore, fairycore, even lovecore are stupid names but like >>258816
said, I can’t really think of another name that encapsulates what is meant by the term. All in all, it’s not a big deal and a pretty stupid thing to get mad about
Genuine question for all the -core fashion anons. What is appealing or satisfying about having such a strictly themed wardrobe?
To me it seems like a lot of time and money to have a very inflexible look. Or do you treat it more like Lolita where you put outfits together for the internet while dressing more uh "normal" in daily life.

Does anyone know where to find a dress similar to this that's good quality? I have found ones in fast fashion places but they are all very thin and not well tailored. Picrel is vintage 1940s btw.

Why are kurt geiger employees always so rude? My mom wants to check their stuff out sometimes and they always suck. Aren't they like a "luxury" brand for middle class people so they can pretend they are rich? I don't really care about designer brands but employees in actual high end stores are way nicer. I saw some sandals I liked today but I just don't feel like buying them because of how much the sales people sucked lol. It's funny though because the clothes I was wearing were more expensive than the shit they sell, except you can't tell because I hate being covered in giant logos and just like how some materials feel. And I'm not rich but if I was I would definitely avoid signaling it by wearing tacky stuff. I mean wtf is picrel supposed to be

Any way to wear swing dresses (vintage remakes) without it looking like a costume? I barely wear mine and when I do it's with combat boots and a baggy jacket. Thought I still feel (and probably look) like a teenager in that.
90% of the time the costume look comes down to hair and accessories. Avoid pearls, pin curls and kitten heels and you'll be fine!
You might find it hard to style with flats because of the signature length, which looks awesome with heels but does read vintage. Try taking up the hem to just above the knee and it'll be a much more versatile piece. You don't have to cut it, just tack it with a few stitches and iron flat to see how it looks.
Swing dresses came back in the 70s and 90s so you could draw from both those eras. For 70s picnic vibes you could do sandals, wear your hair down, straw hat, loose crochet cardigan and long beaded necklaces or stacked bangles. Besides your 90s boots and baggy jacket, you could do a fitted sweater that shows the collar and Mary Janes, maybe a burgundy lipstick.

what do you nonas think of the [off duty] ballerina look ?
I have a whole lot to think about when it comes to "-cores" and "micro trends". For context I'm 25 and generally dressed quite mature from a young age.
I hate and love micro trends, because I never had to words to describe how I wanted to dress but it's easier now to search those styles online to look for inspiration.
What I don't like is just dressing a certain way because it's trendy at the time and wasting clothing and resources to fit a trend that's over in a couple of weeks and then tossing that clothing for the best and latest. Sustainability in fashion is being thrown out the window when zoomers consoom every new trend that pops up off of tiktok and get a $200 shein wardrobe to match it.
So as a categorisation I like microtrends, but taking them and blindly skinwalking to fit whatever's trendy just makes me cringe

What's your personal style nonnie
? I dress quite andro and to add to what others mentioned about breathable fabrics if you're not a skirt person vintage shorts are flowly and loose, great for warmer weather and can be found pretty easy online. Loose blouses, I've tried to branch out into sandals. Sometimes you have to force yourself to accommodate to the weather, and this might be one of them.

I've always loved it since I was a little girl. I love the femininity, the soft baggy sweaters, open necklines, layering, flowy fabrics, leg warmers, wrap-style tops and skirts, how comfy it looks, the colors, and the simplicity and understatedness. The other anon was right tho it's kind of an ana-chan style because normal-sized people would look pretty sloppy in many of these outfits imo.
It's kinda hard to find pics of this aesthetic for some reason. Apparently balletcore is the next big thing.
You can layer sweater over a blouse, have it down one shoulder and wear jeans to balance it out. A nice casual bun and some delicate jewelry would also be nice.
I also like some "core"s but wearing the full outfit together looks like a costume. You can take a few elements for example delicate jewelery, flowy fabrics and pastel colors and wear them in a normal casual way.

I recently thrifted some pretty embroidered granny ribbons and want to incorporate them into outfits. They aren't wide enough to be used as waist belts like some jackets have and I really want to show them off in their full glory. And ideas? I'm okay at sewing (not from scratch, but adjusting I can do no problem) but I'd prefer for them to have multiple uses because I don't have very many of them.>>259747

You think they'd look good as a jacket or cardigan trim? Something like pic rel might not be too hard to add to an already made jacket.
Or you can glue them to some leather strips and make bag handles with them?

I don't really have experience with proper office wear so apologies for being stupid, but I've been trying to find blouses/buttondowns for a new job and I'm wondering if it's common for all of them to be so insanely boxy and unflattering? I see so many tops like left picrel where the shape is literally a rectangle when I want something like on the right. They make me look like I've gained 40 lbs and have no waist. I've tried tucking them into my pants to essentially cinch them around my body, but if the pants sit on my hips then the shirt remains shapeless. If they're high-waisted then the fabric still sticks out at odd angles and looks sloppy. I'd really prefer not to have to wear bodysuits all the time to look more sleek but is there any other option for me? Should I only be looking for "fitted" blouses? This is ridiculous

Another example of the sort of "blouses" I'm finding at Nordstrom, H&M and Uniqlo. I'm looking for business clothes not maternity wear, what the hell?
God it's tragic really. Guess I'll just keep looking. I didn't see any fitted styles when I recently went to H&M (and I tried quite a few) but maybe my store was out of them >>259992
Thanks anon, I figured there had to be some cheap reason behind it considering how bland and standardized a lot of fashion has become. I'll give that a go

Sage because I don't know if this should go in the confession thread lol. I've been wearing babushka scarves pretty much every day (with my bangs and sometimes braided hair out) for the past month and I love it. I hate the way I look in hats and this keeps me form wanting to dye my hair 24/7! Especially when it's just tied in the front and has two Dutch braids plus my big earrings sticking out, call me ratarded but I love it! I have been wearing all black for so long and this helps me look more cheerful also it helps protect my braided hairstyles I sometimes wear so I can wear them multiple days! I can incorporate more colored skirts and general clothing items in my wardrobe too which I have never been able to, it makes it so easy! Plus they keep my head warm while walking home on cold friday nights.Babushka kerchiefs for the win!

What is this style called? How can I dress this way without looking like I'm wearing a costume?
I love ribbons, lace, buttons, and anything delicate and feminine, while maintaining a dark color palette and goth vibe. Basically, I want to look "creepy cute."
A lot of clothes that I see online that suit this style are either cheap, too revealing, costumey, or all of those things at the same time.
Picrel i what I'm looking for.
You're not answering my questions, nonnas!
I'm thin, but I don't see how that would make the clothes look any less like a costume?
I want high quality, detailed, clothes that can be worn in everyday life, yet all I find are costume pieces?

Have you tried looking into lolita fashion? Gothic or classic (specifically that 90s era fruits mag) is probably closest off the top of my head, despite being expensive it doesn't look cheap. If you want something more everyday then look into Jirai, it's based off that whole creepy cute "cute looking but crazy gf" thing (picrel) but that's only really in japan, western girls who wear it just wear it because it's cute>>260383
If you have a good outfit visually and wear it with confidence then it doesn't look cheap, like nonnies said material is a factor but I've seen girls walk out in hideous shit but because they're so confident it doesn't look as bad as it would on some girl who hates herself kek
I'll look into it! Any brands you know of?>>260394
Your picrel is exactly what I want, ty!
Aritzia is honestly just fast fashion with some nicer designs and a higher markup than somewhere like Zara or Mango. There’s no shame in shopping from there if you like their clothes, but it’s definitely not built to last, and is on par with any other fast fashion brand for the most part.
It might be helpful to learn what good quality clothing looks like in terms of construction (checking the seams and how it’s put together, testing the buttonholes with a gentle tug), which materials are most durable and which ones work for different purposes (a linen sundress vs a crisp cotton Oxford vs a silk camisole top vs a thick heavyweight denim) and go to stores in person to feel the variation in quality with your actual hands.
That makes it easier to shop secondhand or thrift nicer pieces, and vintage or luxury consignment is always an option if you are able to spend more, so that you don’t have to dig through pounds and pounds of cheap polyester garments that will fall apart at the seams in the wash.
It’s easier to find brands you like when you know what decent quality, durable or investment pieces look and feel like, what the composition of materials should be, etc.
If you want to buy secondhand luxury or designer, I would go with Grailed (decent markdowns on less coveted pieces that have been up for a while, some sellers will haggle with you, within reason) or eBay sellers with good feedback who only sell those types of pieces over a greedy and frequently deceptive scalper goblin market like Depop.
Department stores can be a good place to scope out different clothes of varying quality. Their stuff ranges from cheap and poorly made to decent quality with decent construction.
If you are a college student and don’t have a ton of expendable income, well made and versatile basics that can be dressed up or down in different contexts will never steer you wrong. It’s better to get something boring like a cream knit sweater, button up or blouse that can both be worn when going out and in a dressier professional context, and pair of trousers or jeans over something flamboyant that is difficult to wear and plan an outfit around.
A couple of pairs of decent quality shoes in a neutral tone that can pair with anything, and you can cheap out on most accessories.
You don’t have to become a minimalist or build a capsule wardrobe, but people who do live that lifestyle tend to have good pointers on building a simple and interchangeable wardrobe that is a little bit higher quality, and they have their own favourite brands to recommend depending on their personal taste and their use case for their wardrobe.
If you window shop in some department stores or wherever else, you can take lots of fitting room pictures and see which cuts and silhouettes you like best on yourself and your frame, save a little folder on your camera roll so you know what to shop for when you do want to drop the money on something.
Sometimes two pieces of clothing look identical on a mannequin or a shelf and look wildly different on you for reasons you might not pick up on. Drapier tailoring vs darting at the waist, a lower seat on jeans or trousers, different blends of similar materials.
Also, in terms of actual brand recommendations, that really depends on what you like to wear and what your lifestyle is. A young professional working an office job, someone who is a bit masculine, or someone who likes luxurious materials and glamorous silhouettes, someone who wants to look normal but put together, with nice details such as good tailoring and a subtle accessory.
Let me know what you like to wear and where/how you will be wearing it, and I’ll drop some recs.

I've had the same pair for well over a decade and I was really into this colour at the time I bought them. If I were buying a pair now I'd get pink but I literally only use them when I have to go out to my garden for two minutes.
Haha thank you, it does looks a bit muslim/babushka-y but so long as you leave your hair out I don't think it's too bad. Wearing a somewhat modern outfit with it helps a ton! I usually wear crop tops with high waisted baggy pants and cardigans, chunky boots and a lot of chunky accessories. If your style is a bit more feminine or covered up it can give muslim/babushka vibes. But honestly I think that's a super cute look too, try it nona! why do I sound like an advertisement for headscarves kek>>260421
I'm not an East-Eurofag so it's not much of a thing where I live lol. I do get mistaken for Muslim from time to time though, but that sometimes happened even before a started wearing them (I have naturally dark hair and a very Turkish looking nose lol).

Do you wear no show socks with mary jane flats? Or tights? Or nothing?
Thanks for your honesty, nonnas. I asked my best friend and she said it was great, but she doesn't have it in her to tell the truth if it hurts.
All my clothes are super plain (mostly just the same things in different colors) so I try to dress them up with colorful shoes/jewelry. Can you give me some advice about how to do it better? Like, say with this jeans and top, what kind of accessories would you wear?
My other idea was to wear black flats and dangly earrings instead of a necklace, with my hair up?
(I promise the earrings are not tassles, feathers, sequins, or those little rubber spikey ball things Claire's used to sell.)

There's a saying "black makes color look cheap, and color makes black look boring" so try stay away from mixing black and color in one look. A pair of brown trousers or mid wash jeans would update your picrel outfit a lot.
If you feel comfy in black, pairing it with white always looks fresh and classy.
As for jewelry, minimalism is really in right now as is layering. Combining dainty pieces like picrel is pretty common.
I had not heard that before about black/color but it makes sense, thanks a lot! Even I knew something was wrong with that picture, that's why I came and posted it… I just couldn't figure out what.
And I can make this look with what I have, thanks so much!

Sorry for the shitty pic, I can't find any more of this particular style, but how are these types of drawstring supposed to be secured? I've been seeing them lately in athletic wear and I don't understand…
If you can't tell, it's a drawstring that is a fully closed loop. There is about an inch wide opening where it can be grabbed and tightened but there is no mechanism to keep it tightened???? What is this witchcraft.

Throughout winter I wear jackets like picrel, but what would be a good summer equivalent? Like a lighter jacket with the same vibe.>>261256
I'd guess just friction? The inner fabric where the drawcord lies probably has a grippy coating to prevent the cord from slipping. Idk though.
Middle is pretty Oprah, left and right are reading millennial bossbabe to me, which isn't a bad thing. Just quite formal for everyday wear, especially with the heels. You'd fit right in at an office but I would look twice at this outfit for hanging out at a friend's house or even going to a bar.
Then again I live in a country where it's not a crime to wear shorts to a wedding so my sense of casual and relaxed may be warped lol.
I don't think you need to worry about what looks "right" just wear clothes you feel comfy and cute in, rock the Kimmy Schmidt vibe if you want lol, fashion is meant to be enjoyed not optimised by committee.

Nah, you've got me spot on, I actually already have a suede fringe jacket! I think I want one that's a bit lighter material though, not leather as it's quite heavy. >>261270
You should seriously get one, it's amazing. The fringe hitting against the jacket can be pretty loud though, sometimes I wear it with my cowboy boots and I sound like a horse in a hailstorm.

I have a maxi skirt in navy blue, like picrel but with dark green and red stripes throughout (very subtle, it just looks navy blue unless you get very close). I find it very hard to style though because of the color, the only color I can think of that would look good with it is a dull orange but I need dark colors around my face in order to not look like a corpse. I have worn it in the past with black tops/cardigans but I don't think it looks good together, it clashes and not in an interesting way. Suggestions?
Forgive my autism but why would light colors make you look like a corpse? I think this color would look great with a white blouse, and white usually makes your skin tone look darker and warmer. Even an off-white or light beige if you don't like paper white. I also agree with >>261286
I think a deep red would work great.

I'm going to a family thing, it is a birthday and we're going to a semi-nice restaurant so I'd like to look a bit more modest and put together. I'm thinking a fitted top, long cardigan, nice jewelry/hair and some cleaned, nice looking combat boots are alright but is picrel too casual? Should I go for a midi/maxi skirt instead? Maybe this is a retarded question, they are nice quality pants though (no stretchy jersey material, nice cotton) and don't look old and beat up like most other clothes I own. They're also high waisted and will be very covered by the cardigan so maybe? I usually dress like a slob when going to family things so they're used to it lol, just want to look okay because we're going somewhere nice. these are not the exact pants btw, just something that looks similar
Thanks nona, will do!>>261486
Thank you, it is not very put together no but I'm seeing my family so I don't really need to. I will pick out something nicer though, as you and the other anon said it's just too casual.

If you ever want a relaxed fit pant somewhat similar to harem pants but nicer, I would recommend paper bag pants. They lightly cinch at the waist but are loose below. Good for dressy but still comfy looks.

I have broad shoulders and big boobs, but want to achieve a look similar to picrel. What tops could I wear? Large jumpers or oversized shirts make me look obese because they hang off my boobs, but I don't like wearing fitted tops that accentuate them either. I want to keep the modest look without looking frumpy. If that's possible.

A few things. Look at the sleeves on tops, is there a seam at the shoulder? That's called a set-in sleeve. This helps to visually minimize the appearance of shoulders and present a more "polished" look. Compare shirt on the left with the one on the right. See how that helps to lean out her frame? Go for that. Don't just go for the huge blousy shirt, go for relaxed shirts that still have some structure to them.
File: 1651876943658.png (237.48 KB, 358x639, 14302984092375.png)
V-necks. I know they may seem like the opposite of modest, but they don't have to be plunging down between your tits. It just has to be enough to create a more angular, tapered look.
File: 1651877268751.png (279.83 KB, 360x558, 68904823907542.png)
Accessories. You don't need to cinch your waist like a corset, just a lightly fitted belt (fabric or normal) will break up the blockiness and give you more shape while remaining fully covered.

Is this an attempt at CWC-core?
I question if the chill and comfortable look with loose shirt and skirt can across the same way by larger busted women. It's a common look in Korean fashion I'd think because women on average have smaller busts there. Maybe layering an open longer sweater or shirt of a thicker fabric over a shirt with a neckline, keeping the skirt and boots could work. Also could wear lighter fabric button up with top button or two undone. Higher necklines can make your bust look larger. Try to look at silhouette and if they have darts. This video has good tips, I'd see if other ones on youtube help you either. >>261693

parasols protect you skin wayyyy more than spf ever could
yeah I never really took skincare seriously until I lived in asia for a year and saw women religiously moisturize their skin and use parasols.
my mom looks way older than she actually is because she's one of those 80's sun worshippers and thinks the temporary tan is worth the wrinkles and blemishes. and so many people still seem to think that. which is fine I guess, but imagine mocking someone who actually gives a shit abt their skin lol

tanning does nothing but give premature wrinkles, spots, and possible skin cancer. no one should ever just be laying out in the sun with the goal of roasting their skin darker. sad that it's so accepted in the west and seen as "being healthy" when it's causing pure damage to your skin.
im pale as fuck and will never be tan. i tried tanning and i just turn red, so i gave up. instead i look at other fair skinned queens who dont care about what's trendy and just embrace their look. i am consistently mistaken for being 10 years younger than i am.

people who make fun of that stuff are severely insecure and you should make them feel bad if they say things to you.
Same. I don't give a shit about tanning anymore, I love the outdoors but always wear spf and hats etc.

anon you did not just make me go on a wild ride to research dark skin and fair skin and type all this shit out like a sperg in this thread lmao. darker-skinned people are able to stay in the sun longer because our amount of eumelanin is able to process UV rays, fair skin is only a result of evolutionary pressure of dwelling in the barbaric snow for too long and needing to retain enough vitamin D. from what I also read, vitamin D absorption might be related to bone density, african americans or darker-skinned individuals have higher bone density (stronger bones) than fairer skinned people so why would it make any sense if darker-skinned individuals are vitamin d deficient? it’s because ethnically we have different metabolic conversion of the same vitamin, so it doesn’t mean we are vitamin d deficient. enjoy your red pizza faced skin-shedding master race skin that needs more vitamin D because it’s inherently weaker! go fuck yourself anon don’t ever pull that shit on me again

Doctors even prescribe the use of tanning beds in my country and even with all the knowledge today, if you are pale or don't want to stay for too long in the sun, people act like something is wrong with you. It's still hard to find foundation in paler colours in my country because having a tan is still associated with being healthy and the ability to be on holiday lying in the sun often.
I'm also quite pale, I will turn red and then I will look like I haven't washed myself in weeks. Also, I never liked the sun, my skin starts to hurt very fast and I get headaches when it's sunny outside, so why should I punish myself with something that isn't good for me. I'm still angry at my parents that they never cared and I had my first sunburn while I was only 5 years old, I could have had skin without moles, but no, they had to be shit parents.
Fun thing, my grandma is over 90, her skin looks younger than that of my mothers because my grandma never sunbathed, smoked and always was pale.>>263551

Sorry to reply to racebait, but that gif is so cool. Iirc, Surya was the only person to ever do this in the Olympics. It must have been fucking terrifying for her.>>263611
Yes, but can I stay in my house the entire month?
It's not just the danger, backflips/somersault type moves have nothing to do with skating ability. It's akin to a gymnast lifting weights in a competition.
Surya was a gymnast who switched to skating and she refused to adjust and play by the rules. She got shit because she willingly performed an illegal move and was not a good skater. Good acrobat, perhaps, but not a good (competitive) skater.
Also the "amazing move" can be performed by literally anyone who can do a backflip and skate somewhat OK. The only difference is you just rotate yourself a bit less and land flat, on 1 foot if you can. There's a scrote who learned how to backflip on ice in a day.
That's not to say it's not a cool move, it just doesn't have a place in competitions and not that big of a deal as people make it out to be (probably going by the fact only a handful have done it, which is more due to the rules rather than ability). You can do it on shows to your heart's desire but it has no place in competitions.
+figure skating will always be elegance and skating skill first and athletics second. There's a reason why it's also considered a performing art. >I wish ice skating stayed a more athletic event, instead of being obsessed with underage girls and forcing them to become anachans who need to retire as soon as they turn 18.
kek>>263616>Iirc, Surya was the only person to ever do this in the Olympics.
Because it's an illegal move. She literally only did it because she had no way to win anyways. Competition was too great + she had a injury so her jumps were really bad.
Anon, I really don't give that much of a fuck about ice skating or why
she did the move. I'm aware that it was illegal, but I still think it was great and that she had to be talented to do it, that's all. I don't think it's that big of a deal.

I really want a long skirt, they’re so comfy and cute, or at least a midi skirt. I would pair it with some sped sandals and a comfy t-shirt, maybe add a sweater.
Actually, is traveling with midi or long skirts comfortable?
What to you mean by travelling nonnie

I loooooove long skirts, I'm wearing one today! If I wear a nice blouse I look effortlessly elegant, if I wear a t-shirt tucked into it, it's like a comfortable, casual-cute look! So versatile, and I love the look of it flowing around as I walk.
I think midi skirts are better for travelling though. My skirt today hits my ankles and I have to hold some of it up when walking up/down stairs and dealing with my skirt length + luggage seems like a nightmare. Midi lets me have the length I want but without as much of the nightmare (but I still prefer the look of long skirts over them).

I have literally ZERO clue about fashion. I just want to look like an actual adult, but also not melt in the heat. Yes these are men's clothes, but apparently a men's xxs/xs fits my shoulders perfectly, with the seam actually at the shoulder, instead of a few inches too close to my neck. I'm not going to battle with women's clothes again, when you try a bigger size, the shoulderroom just never seem to get bigger, just the waist and I like big pockets and I cannot lie, you other nonnas can't deny. I'm not looking to be convinced to not wear men's clothes, it doesn't feel assuring, it's just really annoying. I'm just wondering whether this looks absolutely retarded or not. I've mostly been wearing cargo shorts and t-shirts due to the heat, but that made me look a bit too immature.
Yeah, that particular outfit looks stupid. The colors go together okay-ish, but every single item is at a different level of formality, and it really clashes.
If you like the shirt, wear it with khakis and boat shoes or something. If you like the shorts, wear them with a polo or t shirt and sneakers. If you like the shoes, wear them with long pants. Please.

Not that anyone cares but no dancer ever wears this except for principal dancers who get to wear whatever the hell they want, which usually isn’t aesthetically approved wrap cardis and leg warmers but random neon leotards and ugly dance warmup gear that they got handed down from older girls in the ballet company. As a soft summer toned ballet dancer, I really wish all of the gear was muted like tiktok girls seem to think but most of the stuff available at actual dance fashion stores was bright and usually tacky as hell.
I also feel like people look worse with their hair pulled tightly back in a bun as companies and classes typically require you to have your hair slicked back with no flyaways.

I really like this type of clothes. It look so feminine, yet comfortable and warm at the same time.

Maybe during the peak of covid. Now bitches mad when people can't see your entire face in public again. I just want to dress like a power Rangers villain when I go to get groceries damnit

omg yes! i‘ve been trying to think of ways to modernise clothing from classic art. i just want this vibe back.
Yup agree. I especially don't like a belt on dresses that disrupt a pattern.>>264181
Honestly do you really want this to become socially acceptable, you know it wouldn't stop at being "socially acceptable" it'd become the new standard to dress with outrageous effort and inconvienience.

Already sounds more age appropriate than the 90's teenage boy thing I've got going on kek (picrel). What are adult looking warm weather outfits, with no feminine stuff? I don't want to look like Honter, but also don't want to look like a teenager either (so no super oversized stuff). It's fine if you want to wear feminine things, amazing if that makes you happy, but it's just not for me. I'm not looking to be convinced to grow my hair out, wear make up and buy ill-fitting clothes from the women's section. The names of these sections aren't laws and or prescriptive, it's not illegal anymore for women to wear men's clothes!>>264361
Still better than Honter or teenage boy>>264374
I have short hair and I've got no boobs, so it wouldn't look like that. No, I'm never going to grow my hair out again.
>>264407>and since you are a woman the cuts will fit your body better most of the time
Most clothes at the women's section are made for women with tiny shoulders, who have at least some boobs and hips, not inverted triangle. When you go a size up, only the waist gets bigger and the garment gets longer, the shoulderroom never gets bigger. How often do I have to explain that? You can suggest different masculine aesthetics, I'm just not interested in feminine aesthetics, because that is what has been pushed onto me all my life and I've been beaten for not wanting to conform. Why do I need to explore something which is already being forced on all of us through female socialization? If I want to hear this bullshit, I can just go back to conversion therapy. I'm sick and tired of this pressure to "do both", because wanting to be exclusively gnc or masculine is just sooo taboo. I don't feel comfortable in feminine shit, it makes me look like an AGP. I don't fucking care that there is oversized crap at the women's section nowadays, when the shoulders still have no fucking room and oversized shit just makes me look like a teenage boy. When I buy men's shirts in size XXS-S, the seam actually hits the end of my shoulder without being oversized, instead of being bunched up halfway to my neck, strangling my upperback and being a tent around the waist. Call shit ugly all you want, but why the fuck do the suggestions always have to be "please perform femininity for me, please get back into the box of acceptable amounts of androgyny, please do both!".

this woman is not broad-shouldered, but how do you feel about a look like picrel for yourself? its a bit similar to the green outfit you posted first and its more grown-up than most of the menswear-for-women styles that rely on baggy clothes.
Wait so you're telling me that you can just go to the men's section and buy men's clothes for yourself? I wish I had realized that sooner instead of letting my mom shame me for asking for more masculine women's clothes.
The only problem is that I'm probably too small for most men's clothes.
Don't need to get it tailored, size xxs-s fits me just fine, at most need to hem it a bit sometimes (which I just learned how to do myself). That's what I'm trying to say, why should I struggle and feel defeated when trying to fit in clothes from the women's section, when I can already fit in men's shit easily and the seam actually hits where my shoulder ends, instead of being halfway to my neck and bunched up? I can't help it that somewhere between the 80's and the 2010's the industry decided that women cannot have broad shoulders.>>264446
Yeah you can, at most you'll scare some men away from the men's section (which is funny), but you definitely can. They carry size XXS sometimes nowadays, which is not that big.

I never even mentioned height as a problem? Most women in my area are around 6 foot tall and I'm short in comparison, so that's not the issue. I just have a ridiculously big ribcage and very wide shoulders, I measured, I know it's fucked and out of range of what is normal for women. /fit/ would be jealous of my frame. I've decided to embrace it and started lifting, but that also means everything has gotten even broader. Since when does off-the-rack women's clothes take into account whether someone is a powerlifter or bodybuilder? There's a reason a lot of female bodybuilders and powerlifters who have no problem being feminine just live in stretchy bodycon stuff, the rest just doesn't fit.>>264502
The shirts generally have a feminine collar, are thinner fabric (requiring you to wear a bra or pasties at least), the formal shirts don't fit my shoulders, arms and upperback and swim at my waist, I got a faux leather jacket from the women's section which doesn't fit my shoulders and strangles my upperback but fans out at my nonexistent hips, it looks comical. I don't like to wear the oversized trend either, because that makes me look like a teenage boy, I want to wear things that actually fit well. Why is it so difficult to understand, that things have to fit right at the shoulders? The seam has to hit the end of the shoulder, otherwise everything looks bunched up. Women's clothes is shaped like a trapezoid. If you go a size up, only the waist and length gets bigger, shoulderroom stays tiny. >You don't look like a man no matter what you wear.
Nice that you and other RFs have that opinion, problem is that when I had longer hair and tried to fit in a woman's blazer and shirt, I was asked at work whether I'm an AGP a couple years ago. The ill fitting clothes, in combination with my features, makes people think they are "clocking" me. I've heard enough of it since puberty (people would constantly ask me whether I'm intersex) and I really don't want to deal with it, especially not in this climate. Women's clothes also have fake pockets, shallow pockets, no inside pockets, worse thinner fabric for a higher price etc. I swear you can go to the men's section and the women's section at the same shop and you will notice that either the men's is cheaper or will be higher quality at the same price. Short fashion cycles are created by retailers to drive purchasing of cheaper, shoddier clothes for high price. Maybe some women are amenable to this because they enjoy adopting new looks rapidly, but it completely swamps out availability for quality clothing at a fair price for the not insignificant number of women who want quality staples. I don't want to run around like a headless chicken or spend extra just to find something good at the women's section, when I can just go to the men's, since I'm privileged to be flat and have straight hips so I can fit. Even women's workwear (for manual labor) has this problem, you wear it for safety, but as soon as you get the women's version it's suddenly a worse quality and not as durable. The differences are so vast, that you really cannot convince me, unless it's the women's section at a secondhandshop, because the 80's knew that women with broad shoulders exist and vintage clothes have better quality than whatever you can get new at the women's section for a fair price.
I'm the same height and build, nonnie
. I have a hard time finding shirts because I like them long.

Late but if you're still looking then this brand has some fitted shirts and blouses that might be more up your alley, picrel is one of their blouses https://fas-bee.com/brands/VI8697/items>>260427
If you're looking for ryousangata/jirai outfits like the one in this anon's picrel >>260394
you are going to want to look at MA*RS, Rojita, Noemie on palemoba, dearmylove on dreamvs, Ank Rouge/JamieNK, Bubbles Tokyo, or Pium. Bubbles especially is really good for dresses similar to >>260373
but a bit more understated.

Hmmm, shirtwaist dresses?

How would you style this dress without making it too tennis-dress-y?

samefag>also dont use fabric softener. no idea if dryer sheets are harmful but they're not necessary either, and they might give you acne or dermatitis.>if you line-dry, don't do it in direct sunlight unless thats the only way stuff gets dry (if you live in a high humidity climate).>heat ages fabrics. lower heat in the wash/dry cycles is always better.>mechanical tumbling also ages fabrics. when you transfer clothes from the washing machine to the dryer, notice which ones already feel almost dry. take them out and let them air-dry. two benefits: that item doesn't get dryer abuse, and the items in the dryer probably dry a little faster.>if it says hand-wash, and you really care about it, actually hand-wash it in a sink, bucket, tub, whatever. the pro-tip is to wear these items sparingly and then wash all of them at once like once a month or once a season or however often makes sense.>get a little mesh garment bag for putting bras inside of in the washing machine if you don't hand-wash them. do NOT put them in the dryer, lay them out flat somewhere to dry.
im giving this advice because its the advice i needed when i first started spending real money on clothes and it seemed like everything was falling apart for no reason. i had a brand-new bra ruined in the wash by an ignorant past-self and i'm still bitter about it.
Appreciate the thought, I actually ended up doing what >>259998
suggested and bought a bunch of secondhand Brooks Brothers shirts (found them on ThredUp). They fit perfectly like they're made for actual women instead of building blocks and I like the thick cotton material so my bra doesn't show through. Thanks anon for the advice!

has anyone bought anything from cider? specifically their bathing suits? they have a lot of cute styles but i'm not sure about the quality of their clothing. some of the pics look like aliexpress listings so i'm suspicious, but i don't know where else to buy cute swimwear from
it's a bit like yesstyle where they buy from china and repackage/relabel stuff. It might even be a dropshipping site. From my experience, stuff from China is a bit hit or miss, but sometimes you can find great pieces :)
If you reverse image search the item you like on aliex, you should be able to find it cheaper!
I hope this helps :)(:))

Can someone tell me what type of shoes these are, or what they're called?
ankle boots (but those look quite low)
elastic at sides similar to chelsea or austrailain work boot
Jewel tones? Yep. >I'm not a fan of bright colors
That's what jewel tones are. I wouldn't consider them dark muddy colors like brown and olive.>most of my casual clothes are black
You're just not creative or haven't experimented. Find some colored clothes so you can dress for warm weather/year round.

I think this is what nona means by jewel toned vs bright, fluorescent colors like hot pink. I think jewel toned usually describes colors like navy, burgundy, evergreen, etc.

Geode's swimsuits have basic, nonrevealing cuts and shorts versions as well if you want even more coverage. Also Land's End has a modest section that covers the asscheeks. https://geodeswimwear.com/collections/all-products-cute-modest-swimwear-full-coverage-one-piece-swimsuits
