ladies, I am craving a dramatic Mugler-esque blazer/jacket. accentuated wasp waits, pointy or padded shoulders, basques… I just obviously do not want to pay actual Mugler prices, obviously. Do you have any recommendations for the next closest thing (aside from the H&M collab lmao)?

Mugler was recreating 40s fashion with an 80s /90s sexy flavor so just go back to the 40s and look for inspo then build your own wardrobe. That’s what he did.

No. 359731

Not even being dismissive of Mugler I love his designs but in case you wanted a tip, that’s what he did. That’s why the new stuff after he sold the brand doesn’t hit right, they left out the structured vintage 40s flavor

Just buy things with real embroidery not printed patterns, and also some lace embellishments. It’s an anti-fast-fashion style because you can’t get embroidery and crochet/lace in fast fashion. It will cost a bit more than some styles but not a ton, it’s a doable look.

Nonas, I'm really excited and nervous.

The colors in your picrel are pretty bright, I find it difficult to match bright colors with muted ones unless it's a monochromatic palette. So rather than something muted, I'd pick a bright color similar to one in the pattern, preferably one of the main colors. For example, it it were a skirt, I'd pick a green or a magenta top. I'd sooner match it with another bright colored pattern or something neon than with muted colors. Alternatively, you get something in the same style but more muted or with fewer colors.

You can't really match muted and bright like this, it just washes out the muted colours further. If you don't want to wear black you have to pick a color in the print and try to match with it. So one of the floral colors or green like the leaves.

What's the kibbe type if you have features that would look good in an older time period like medieval or victiorian, like when you have an 'antique' or 'old' looking face? I thought one of the classic types but my features aren't balanced enough. Thought dramatic but I'm far from looking sharp or well, dramatic and I look bad with slicked back hair and with straight cut clothing. My best hairstyles are long and wavy or curly but not in a messy way, and wavy and curly updos with tendrils around the face. As for clothing it's harder to figure out other than no sharp cuts, no tight clothing and nothing cropped.

I think my face looks like if you take a Romantic or SG face and stretch it vertically, but my body type resembles gamine (cannot pull off any of the clothing tho)

Does anyone have a good resource for determining your color season??

I've tried so many tests and quizzes online and I always get a different result. I even tried an app that used the paper test with the camera and I got a completely different result than what I usually get.

I mostly have blacks and pastels in my wardrobe which I think it's totally wrong because I usually get a type of autumn.

I'm also a (soft?) Gamine based on those AlyArt videos.

I just really want to clean up and reconfigure my closed with colors that actually will look good on me.

theconceptwardrobe has a quiz that breaks down the elements of color analysis pretty well. if you're finding it really hard to figure out which season you are despite meticulous research it's possible you're in between two. I am as well, in between deep autumn and deep winter. my undertones are neutral warm and my overtones are warm so I'm too warm to be a winter, but my skin has a lot of brightness/clarity which is a winter trait (whereas autumns are muted rather than bright). I'm in-between both seasons (true dark) but lean towards autumn, so I stick with gold autumn jewellery and makeup with more warmth to the colours, but can easily wear the deep winter palette as clothing and have it complement me rather than clash even though I'm warm toned rather than cool toned.

if you have olive skin (like myself) it can be very difficult to pinpoint your season because of the yellow overtones. but the good thing about having olive skin is that it's actually easy to pull off clothes even if they're technically out of your season without them looking horrible, you can get away with breaking color rules with an olive skin tone

can't recommend going to tailors enough. get a regular black blazer that fits you right in the shoulders, then get it nipped in the waist, exact to your measurements. it shouldn't be crazy expensive.

not just mugler, but the 80s were so heavily influenced by the 40s. the main difference was how boxy rather than triangular everything was. (then you have more nuances with sleeve length and the overall size of things.) it gets to the point of 40s enthusiasts buying 80s clothes and styling them in a 40s way, since it's cheaper than buying 40s vintage.
i love how fashion cycles. the 70s had so much 30s inspo, and now we see the 90s making a comeback.
my schizo take is that dior's 50s feel a little bit victorian. i won't elaborate.
>>359742
slight derail but tonnes of (shitty raschel) lace in fast fashion made lace feel tacky for decades. poor machine imitation of previously less accessible luxury makes even the real thing seem tacky. after polyester satin became a thing, satin (previously made of silk) stopped being associated with luxury. first it becomes accessible, then becomes overdone to death, then stops being coveted. its not accessibility im bitching about, but rather people overdoing it.

avoid white slips and white bras for thin white fabrics. they will shine through. something close to your skin tone is ideal.

Trying to figure out how to get my husband to buy me this dress for Christmas it's $200. He freaks out if I want clothes costing over $30 cause he's a man and that's what his clothes cost. Alternatively thinking of asking for a sewing machine so I can just make this stuff, my favorite clothes are usually right on the intersection of simple shape and high quality materials which for some reason is $$$. Only thing stopping me is r/sewing a lot of the stuff people make looks a little bad idk if that's just the way stuff looks when it's home made or if that's just cause its reddit.

That's a very basic outdated dress and it doesn't even look high quality, if anything it looks worse than your average Zara or massimo dutti garment. Don't spend 200 on a dress like that, if you're gonna spend that much look into more detailed pieces that actually look expensive.
I think older women usually see a dress with a high price tag and just assume it's high quality because brands didn't use to do this types of scams back in the day, most high end brands are still producing low quality garments and most of them are just as unethical as fast fashion brands. If you want a good quality dress for a cheap price, check out apps where people are selling their second hand clothes in.

Your husband hesitating to spend as much is very weird but you didn't tell us how much you guys make and if you struggle financially so I can't really judge if he's being stingy or simply trying to save up. If he's the only one working and he makes barely 1.5k and you guys rent then yeah ofc 200 is too much for him but if you guys earn more he's being insensible.

Sewing a garment yourself is often more expensive than buying if you purchase fabric new at full price, just keep that in mind if you go through with purchasing a sewing machine. Maybe look at the prices of high quality fabric per meter/yard at your local stores (if any available, plenty of stores just sell polyester) to get an idea of what you'll be spending per garment.

Cute dress but keep in mind high price tag =\=, fabric composition, stitching, details, lining etc. all matter and can't really be accurately judged from a picture.

I'm not exactly impressed, but I dunno how expensive clothes are over there so I can't tell how overpriced it is. I don't think it is a bad dress, tho a bit too boxy for my body type, but it being boxy should make it a little easier to replicate, not that I think you should go for something like that if you have never sew before, it's not too complicated, but it's not begginers stuff either.

I don't think it would be worth it unless you want a wide shouldered oversized 80s look or are moid-sized in some way.

If you need it tailored into a fitted modern suit, it would be the same as basically taking it apart to make a new suit out of the fabric because there's so many things to alter, even the collar, button placements, the sleeve and arm hole width, the length (and cropping it will make the pocket placement all wrong too) at this point it's better to have a suit made for you directly. Maybe if you got the moid suit for free from your dad or whatever it would be worth the trouble but besides that, it would be a lot of trouble for nothing. I'm not a tailor though

I changed 2 different bags for totally new ones after they got worn out from me wearing them too much, I feel they're a trustworthy brand although they're obviously fast fashion.

For the visible underwear, I think they think it signals sexual availability. For the low rise pants, the appeal for me was showing off a flat & toned stomach and to be seen as fit & attractive like the celebrities that wore the style. I was young with body image issues at the time..

i'm all over the place because it's kinda a whole new world to me! i think 90s (mens) streetwear is the one i'm feeling really hard after allowing myself to unapologetically like male fashion. it's all just looking at sneakers and hats for me right now though, it's much harder to find clothes i wouldn't drown in. at least having a big af head and feet is a blessing? like seriously how do you guys find pants, i've never seen anything shorter than 30 inseam even in the womens section. fellow non model height women how do you live? i don't want to get them tailored either because that's just sad.

No. 363696

Nonas, do you ever find it hard to wear some items because of what you associate them with? For example I love pleated skirts, but I see egirls/troons wear them and it makes me feel less comfortable. They're such an inoffensive item of clothing but I worry people will look at me weird for wearing them, as if I seem like some hyper-weeb type. Same goes for thigh high socks, suspender skirts, chokers and pigtails… Kind of depressing.

>>363678
It might be harder with the mens section but in the womens section petite jeans are the way to go! Also the kids section may be helpful to you. I also wouldn't worry about getting them tailored, it's cheap and no one's going to find that embarassing. I know I've had to get a million of my jeans tailored. Enjoy your fashion journey nona!

I feel the same way about chokers. Some of them are cute, but even the normal ones (not just the ones that look like collars) make me think of BDSM and I would feel gross wearing them. Doesn't help that the only women I've seen wearing them irl were all sexually submissive and loud about it. The idea of chokers just disgusts me now.

i need to preface by saying that i'm a bit of a vintagefag.
i frequently buy from house of foxy (uk) and emmy design (sweden). i havent bought anything from vecona (germany) yet, but they have some really cool stuff also.
hof is great. british-made in yorkshire, super flattering. i recommend their blouses. timeless classics and the historical inspiration is very visible. the dresses are good too, but the fabrics they use for dresses aren't always historically accurate.
emmy has great merino wool knitwear. i have dresses and cardigans, and they hold up extremely well despite being worn all the time. trousers are extremely flattering, too. it can be hit or miss with fabric (i'm talking about some trousers being too thin for my very picky liking), but everything on the website is depicted and described in extreme detail, so you know what youre getting. they don't just say where the item is made, but also what country the fabric is sourced. their factories are in europe. emmy dresses are great for tall people or people with long torsos, and the bottoms have a good waist-hip ratio. they have historically-inspired styles, but also a lot of cute quirky twee stuff.
i like what katie did for underwear. british brand, but they have their factories in india. they show footage from the production process, so you can see it isn't a sweatshop. i can't recommend their 40s bra enough- it's so comfortable that i wear it even with modern clothes on the daily.
if you're looking for basic leather stuff, i bought a jacket from konopka recently. small polish brand and expensive, but in my opinion it's a better use of your money to get something once, than to get plastic faux leather every couple of years. nice quality. they do furs too, though i know that's not everyone's cup of tea.
speaking of leather, les debutantes on etsy is excellent for gloves.
memery is a small danish shoe business (with excellent customer service). their heels are so comfortable, that i can wear them all day, and i'm not a heel person at all. again, vintage-inspired designs, but those are timeless in my opinion. they recently started making knitwear, but i cant review it as i havent bought any. american duchess shoes are also good in terms of quality and comfort, but their factories are abroad. memery has a local workshop.
i do declare seems to have really nice stuff, but i haven't bought from there (yet). it's a small business. goatspell, too.
some other brands i like browsing are linen nave, sondeflor, and little women atelier. haven't bought from them, so i can't give a review.
>>361284
i'd say don't bother if the suit is too wide in the shoulders (unless you want a shoulderpad 80s look). get one that fits perfectly in the shoulders, and nip the waist in with multiple darts.
>>363810
i have the same issue with chokers. but there is a really cool one (two rows, with dangling peals) from regal rose that i want… i think i'll get it. i think i could pull it off with a black flowy blouse with the top buttons undone, without it looking "slutty".

thanks for the tips! i think i'll avoid the petite dept for now because i hate how women's trousers and jeans (appear to be?) designed, even the baggy ones manage cling weirdly to your asscrack. also maybe it's just me but wearing things labeled as petite while i'm literally average height puts a sour taste in my mouth, i just hate that word so fucking much. i just ordered a pair of youth sized levis, please pray for me anons, i'll kms if they're too long. really it's a good thing because if every cool pair of jeans fit me i'd just wanna buy ALL of them, that would be horrible. constraint makes life easier in a way!

i've seen girls style pleated skirts before irl that looked really classy anon, one girl i knew was wearing this nice gray trench coat and combat shoes with it and she looked super pretty and not like an egirl at all. she had half pigtails too now that i think about it so idk how she pulled that off kek.

I'm taller than average and often have problems with pant waistbands not reaching up to my waist even now so that era was a real nightmare. Low waisted jeans and especially the super skinny ones were so humiliating, I get war flashbacks whenever I see them, I am legitimately terrified about low waisted pants becoming the norm again. I always had to wear tunics or XXL moid tees to avoid flashing my asscrack in class. Not to mention if you have a hip dip low waisted pants will make it look like you've got a big fat muffin top instead. the bootcut or baggy ones were cute on a few people, I kind of like the middle from >>362658 but the others look ridiculous like their pants are just sliding off their bodies.

>>362881
The entire point of fashion at that time was to get women to wax their entire bodies, starve themselves, hit the tanning beds and get surgery. Fuck that shit.

>>363810
I think in this current era, the difference between an edgy/cool leather choker and a cringe thot black belt is how expensive it is, kek. More seriously they have a completely different vibe depending on whether it's made of genuine leather/good quality PU or obvious plastic, and the type of hardware they use. I'm a former goth so fetish and lingerie inspired fashion is kind of my guilty pleasure, but at some point it somehow went wrong and everything became tacky, obnoxious and cheap. My retarded PVC outfit which has accessories from an actual fetish designer somehow looks less fetishy than things you'd find in a regular alt fashion store, it's just stupid. I guess since being a pervert became a flex, they just gave up on being subtle.

Very basic choice but I really like Carolyn Bessette's style. I think it really was casual and effortless: neutral colors, no patters, minimal jewellery and makeup… A lot of influencers try to emulate her but I think they don't make justice to her outfits because today even basic pieces of clothing have a different cut and quality than in the 90s. Bessette's style was very minimalistic but the pieces she wore were mainly from luxury brands so it's hard to get similar fitting pants or sweaters. I am not a fan of the bleached baby blonde highlights, but I still consider her facial features to be quite attractive, she looked fresh faced yet mature. She also had a rare but beautiful accessory: the Kennedy himbo (too bad he was a slut).

I know this is 5 months old but if not being able to dress up for a few hours a day affects you this much then it seems like you have self esteem issues. Not trying to sound rude, you're probably young based on your posts and if you were a neet before then it must have taken its toll on you.
Slightly ot, but since the first lockdown I've noticed that people have become obsessed with 'self expression' to a pathological degree, I genuinely believe that people obviously it's mostly women who feel the need to spend hours each day getting ready and that they're only being their 'real' selves when they dress a certain way have extreme identity issues and a distorted view of themselves. Dressing up can be fun and is somewhat expressive but you're still you when you don't do that. Whether you're in sweats, taobao lolita knock offs or naked you're always yourself. It's a very TIF sort of worldview as well, that your appearance must match whatever it is that supposedly lies on your inside which is an impossible task btw.
I think having a personal taste and style is different from the relationship most of online have with clothes. It actually put me off from fashion so much that it was one of the things that made me drop out from fashion school which tbf wasn't the best choice in the first place and I'm glad I switched majors.

I've been looking for the perfect pair of loafers, but it's been hard. I'm a semi-recovered jfashion weeb and I wear lots of long skirts and cardigans. I feel like the chunky square loafers with chains that are trending right now really don't match my clothes, but I want something with a bit more edge than straight-up granny shoes.

>no oversized lug soles (I think they're cute but I'm worried it's too trendy)

>a bit of heel
I feel like I've scoured the whole internet but these Coach ones are the closest I could find.. I'm not really a fan of the logo on them though. There's also a really cute Miu Miu block heel loafer I'm in love with but that's a bit out of my price range kek

Japanese women love to layer clothes and it can work well for them because they’re usually skinny with narrow frames. If you have wide shoulders, wide hips, a wide ribcage or thick legs, layering especially with voluminous fabrics like tulle skirts can easily make you look fat and frumpy. It works well for women who are ‘straight up and down’ because the volume creates the illusion of hips and a waist.

Extremely autistic post incoming but maybe somebody does get my issue: I like certain clothes on japanese women but if I see the pretty much same style on a western woman it gives off totally different vibes to me and I immediately dislike it.
For example >>369215 is cute and simple but if she was a blonde it would look like an obnoxious scandi style ig hoe who likely lives in a sterile grey beige apartment to me. Is there a difference between these outfits and the outfits I hate that I'm not noticing? Is it the bangs/hair color? The less curvy body type? I genuinely feel at a loss.

Thoughts on this outfit? Because I wear some version of this every day. In colder months it's a heavy or layered sweater with a pleated skirt and tights, in warmer weather it's a thin sweater with a pleated skirt and no tights.

But honestly the last time it happened I was on the brink of death picking up a prescription at CVS and I think I was wearing a 2xl hoodie and sweats. The only real solution to the catcalling problem is making it a crime punishable by death, or at least letting us start pepper spraying them freely

I prefer seeing outfits on East Asian women but that's because I'm also East Asian so it's easier to get inspo lol. A lot of western makeup also doesn't suit my features or tastes. But I've still seen non-Asian women who pull off the same vibes effectively, and I still appreciate styles that don't suit me personally, it's not really inherent to race but just what's trendy in different countries I think.

This is exactly what I mean. I'm not talking about westerners looking ridiculous in typical jfashion because they're simply too big, I mean that often scandi style and typical uniqlo jfashion share many clothes and yet it can look so different based on whether a japanese or a western woman wears it. Part of it is definitely tanning and harsher makeup, but I wonder whether there are other things you can do to look more cute and less office 'girl boss' (or straight up middle aged)

Absolutely an improvement. This board is much more cohesive and has a lot more personality. There's a subtle cuteness to it that feels really genuine, sparks of love and passion pinned onto a sporty, tomboyish, fresh and fun look. The blues are great, too. All this feels very timeless to me, though I'm sure your tastes will change again as you settle into yourself. I'm so proud seeing your style evolve, nona. You inspire me, too.

Sorry kek, perhaps "timeless" means something different between you and me? I meant timeless as in cute and appealing regardless of date or location, simply because the aesthetics, shapes, and colours are well balanced. Obviously the looks are "dated" and from a specific era, but just as people enjoy Edwardian fashion today, I can enjoy anon's style any time, too. Note that idgaf about trends or what have you, so surely that worldview influences my definition of "timeless." Words have meanings, though, and I wouldn't be surprised if my understanding is inaccurate. If you think there's a better word to say what I meant, please tell me.
>>369819
It is a learning experience for sure, and it's obvious that you are learning. It sounds like improving your sense of style has been beneficial in unexpected ways, too. That's great! I've never used vinted before. I normally just buy "normie" clothes that I think are cute, flattering, and pleasing to the touch. I wonder what it'd be like if I put in the money and effort to collect clothes that I really, really love? I need money first though kek. Until then I'll just enjoy fashion from afar. I hope that you will keep cultivating your wardrobe nona. I can't wait for next year's collage!

I like coquette style but I don’t know what to wear on the bottom half. There’s so many cute coquette camis and cardigans but I never really know what type of skirt or pants to wear as I feel it throws the delicateness of the look off somehow. Short pleated skirts look too ‘slutty schoolgirl’ and are too hard to wear outside anyway as they constantly blow up. I guess shorts can work but I’m not sure what kind of shorts exactly, especially as I hate denim. I see some floaty pink and white short lacey skirts but they’re mostly off aliexpress and look very cheap and tacky. I also don’t know wha kind or color of jeans to wear with a delicate coquette type top. All of these skits look weird to me and throw the outfit off, make it look cheap. I also don’t want to look like pedobaiter pastel nightmare, I want to look whimsical and innocent.

I originally commented about wearing a light wash of jeans, kek. I agree a lot of those skirts that you are talking about look like shit, but i think what you can do is to hunt around during the spring/summer months for cute stuff from somewhere like free the people, they tend to sell stuff like that sometimes. I'd also try to look online for second hand stuff, i think the key is to scour around in brands that sell a boho type aesthetic or very feminine stuff like loveshackfancy. I've gotten some really cute stuff from them second hand for a decent price.

For skirts, I'd recommend anything like LoveShackFancy. They are PRICEY though, so try to look when sales go up! Or try to look for similar styles from them from actual stores and not aliexpress or shein. For jeans, a light blue wash. Pale brown corduroy pants are good too.

I don't think you can. The material, color and fit make the boots look "too much" in all of those regards. Sometimes less is more.

Where's a good online store that carries long, billowy pieces (skirts and shirts mainly) that aren't excessively feminine or frilly? My style inspiration is pretty much Tilda Swinton's character in the Suspiria remake. While I don't want to wear literally what she's got on in picrel, that's the vibe I want: lots of loose fabric and draping that makes big, dramatic shapes. I already dress weird so I don't care how outlandish I'd look, I just want to be big and bold but also comfy. And sorry for the spoonfeeding request, I never shop for clothes online so I feel rather clueless about what's good and what's crap out there.

My first thought is to try and pair them with a top or sweater that is in a similar berry-red color (or features the color if it's multi), and I'd probably stick with black or white bottoms. Brown or navy blue might look nice with that color too, actually. I hate the way they're styled in picrel though, it looks ugly and uncoordinated. Something with more coordinated colors would balance them out if you like things to be matchy-matchy, or an outfit that's monochromatic to let the boots take center stage.

I'm much more attracted to male zoomers because any man in my country above 20, 25 dresses horribly but the kind of clothes I wear likely only attract moids above 40. But I hate female zoomer fashion. I tried to be open, went to stores like urban outfitters with my little sister but everything there looks like total garbage to me.
Right now I probably look like a poor old librarian and on the streets you either see the exact same zoomer outfit, boring scandi fits or girls trying to look rich and boogie, which I hate too.

Just download tinder and set your age range to your preferences. It's weird to try and dress up youthfully in hopes of attracting men. That's way too much effort.

Coquette is just a ripoff of former Larme-kei and Nymphet styles, just do some more research using that, and you'll find better examples. Everything in your picrel looks like you could buy it for one and a half euro on Vinted. Nothing looks like you could wear it outside without it falling apart. Also if you think all of this is fine innocent fashion but pleated skirts are slutty, you have perspective issues.

Another anon already mentioned light brown cord and light denim washes. You can get cute 50s style shorts from pinup brands sometimes. There's also A-line miniskirts with button or pocket details.

>>371036
You can't. Just own it and pull out your best leopard print kek. More seriously, I think it would be cute with oversized sailor stripes. In a way it would be like the casual version of your picrel.

I'm sorry to ask but what is your method for meeting moids ? Because from your post it sounds like you just wait for them to come to you on the street.

I noticed younger guys go kinda apeshit over cargo pants for some reason. that and the crop top x oversized shirt combo. Some kind of idealized cool girl style, tough but cute. It's not the sort of fashion you like though, right ? I guess the oversized piece x form fitting piece thing is applicable to other styles. Also, your hair and make-up play a lot. I second the advice of the other anon who said to just set your preferred age range on a dating app as it's overall easier than all that fashion telepathy shit.

Thanks for your effort nona. Except the red shirt one all those look more millenial-ish to me tho, especially the dress/skirt outfits? All teens/young 20s I see wear ugly old-looking baggy jeans and some tiny flimsy crop top (no matter how cold it is) paired with some chunky shoes and that slicked back hairstyle. On guys baggy pants look good but most of the female outfits looks so wannabe cheap/poor and messy. The rare ones who don't show skin wear super old-looking shirts or pullovers that look like somebody threw it away decades ago.

You're welcome anon! You're wrong on the millenial front though — all the dresses and skirts except the black denim one are recent Brandy Melville, the navy blue dress is from a promotional pic and is actually still available on their US site. From what I could find, the girls in the photos were gen Zers too and these are all pretty recent (2022/2023) pics from Pinterest. Also if you don't like the gen Z trends you mentioned - why bother trying to emulate them? The outfits I showed you all read as youthful and overalls/sneakers/jeans and a graphic tee are pretty timeless. As a gen Z, most of my outfits resemble the ones in the pictures more than the crop top / baggy jeans trend you mentioned. Don't worry so much about whether something's "millenial" or "gen Z", go for something that makes you happy and still reads as youthful! Trust me no guy is going to look at you and go "ackshually that look would better suit an individual born in 1993".

I was in a similiar position a few years ago.

I can't pinpoint what it is, it's not just the yellow stiching because that's the only thing I don't like about docs.

I've worn mine nearly daily for 5 1/2 years now, one boot is damaged by now, but I guess it has something to do with my work and that there has always been more movement and pressure on one shoe. They are still the most comfortable boots I ever had and honestly, I dislike the yellow stitching but I probably will get a new pair just because I can walk in them for hours and my feet won't hurt. I should mention that I have the virginia leather option and I think that it's one reason why they are so comfortable and I only needed a week to break them in. I might look into Solovair boots if I have a chance to try them somewhere, but I guess I will go back to Docs.

Well that's the point of colour season analysis. It's colour theory applied to fashion. That way, if you curate your wardrobe to mainly consist of clothing in colours from your season, you'll never have to worry about colours clashing because they're all complimentary due to being from the same palette. For example, these colours are all in the same palette and despite all being different, they blend well together. Nothing clashes. You can pretty much throw on anything from your wardrobe and as long as it fits right and doesn't have some hideous cut, you'll never look garish or make other people think you're colour blind.

I like the a-line long denim skirts better. The tight ones never fit well around my ass/waist and make me look like a square kek, plus they're uncomfortable to walk around in. I've got this one and I pull it off well but I wear it with chunky shoes or docs and black tight tops and weird belts, sometimes I also layer the skirt with a longer flowy black skirt underneath. It generally fits within my style of maxi dresses and long skirts.
I've seen a lot of stylish zoomer and millenial women pull off denim skirts this summer, but I come from a country with very tall people.

I don't know what's up lately but a lot of these fast fashion brands love to place skirts and pants way below the waist even if the garment looks better when it sits higher, like pic related I posted. I wear it on my waist and it looks way better. I know it's the y2k trend but low waist looks unflattering more often than not.

I'm a young millenial/old zoomer and I LOVE maxi denim skirts. Mid-waist, a line cuts are pretty flattering on most body shapes, they can be worn in summer with crop tops and t-shirts and with chunky sweaters in winter.

Mid rise is the superior rise for most body shapes and weights. It doesn't let your ass hang out like low rise, and it doesn't accentuate fupas like high rise.

Your mom must have been popular because Sassy was the cool girl magazine - (I was a loser and had a subscription to YM.) But I can also attest that in the mid-90's probably 99% of our clothing on a daily basis was simply jeans and a tank top with an open flannel shirt over it. We all wanted a boyfriend who wore a soft henley shirt we could steal, smelling of Farenheit cologne. Piratey ruffle shirts also had a moment, just waiting for those to come back kek. We never wore blush, that was too 80's (same with tucked in tops, so 80's) I remember the first snap crotch bodysuit I ever owned, a cream mock turtleneck like in Fatal Attraction. Wearing tight tops felt very modern because the 80's was all about volume. It felt weird to wear something that clung to your body. I remember twists on 60's mod stuff also being popular, that lasted into y2k. We wore an awful lot of makeup trying to get the "no makeup" look. All very matte, lipliner in earth tones (ugh.) It's weird to watch TV shows when they try to show fashions you're old enough to remember. They always try to make them more palatable to modern sensibilities and get it all wrong. 80's hair is always wrong. It was so huge and dry and fluffy and pretty ugly. Just watch Working Girl. I was watching Twin Peaks recently and that reminded me a lot of how people really dressed and styled their hair in the 90's.

I really liked reading your comment nonna. My mom actually was in her early 20s and had me when she was getting Sassy kek she was an art teacher at the time as well. She really liked the fashion editorials in it and I grew up liking them. A lot of my style evolved from my favorite issues and the spreads within (can remember the Twin Peaks one, this one focused around roses, and one that was all light blue.) I’m 30 now but I still look back at those magazines and love them. I also had some very cool girl babysitters who wore amazing clothes as a kid. I know what you mean re trends you were old enough to actually see being watered down in modern media set back then. I’m obsessed with real 80s stuff (mom also has a lot of various magazines from then) and it’s never done right in modern stuff except maybe Stronger Thongs kek

denim is simply too stiff, bulky, and casual of a fabric to function well as a functional and flattering long skirt. each one of these outfits could be improved by with a different material or pants.

No. 373162

Oh nonna! Very fun to read about your experience, too. I do remember one fashion spread… In Delia's, it was a navy blue military style sweater with epaulettes. I coveted that sweater so much but didn't have the money. Benetton ads were extremely memorable and the brand in general was quite cool at the time. I would only hope to get my sister's hand me down Benetton stuff. Another thing I remember is a Swatch watch advertisement but that was the late 80's I think, because I remember there being pictures of Timothy Dalton as James Bond. A mint green Swatch watch seemed like the most grown up accessory to me kek. Still don't own a navy blue military sweater but I have a Swatch watch now at least. I was watching A Different World a while back for nostalgia purposes and I thought man, what I wouldn't give for some of Lisa Bonet's clothes. They just don't make clothes like that anymore. She was always so well dressed (also doesn't hurt that she is gorgeous)

i had to look these terms up, and it such an ugly, unflattering, and incohesive style. sometimes wearing contrasting fabrics/fashions can be fun and look nice, but this just seems like you got dressed in the dark.

so much of zoomer fashion is just larping these days instead of actually living the lifestyle associated with the clothing and subcultures. the y2k revival trend in general is a bit strange and soulless. nothing about it feels organic and authentic, which is how much of these pieces (football jerseys worn by football fans, etc) functioned and existed during the 2000's. the clothes were just clothes. people who happened to like or do the same things tended to dress in similar ways. they weren't some contrived, blahblahcore tiktok fit like >>373178

This is off topic, but doesn't anyone else feel bothered by the fact that when a lot of these fashion girlies where brogues or mary janes, they always have to go for the most unnaturally bright opaque white sock that hit such an awkward and unflattering part of the calf?? I don't even need to post examples because they are right there in the post.

But to be back on topic, idk why i feel slightly irritated about stacies adapting this kind of style, i feel like a very awkward teenager would wear this unironically with no makeup and gross hair, not Bella Fucking hadid with her cat eye and slicked back hair. Also they don't seem to be embracing the frump, the pictures show them doing mild body checks to reaffirm their hotness that they lost jumping on this trend for clicks and clout. I don't really hate the blokecore trend, but i feel like it's something that shouldn't be a trend and they will all be laughing at themselves and thinking they look gross when this is all over.

If you're having difficulty with the colors, try working out your 'aspects' instead. A good website for this is theconceptwardrobe.com. For example, I thought for a year that I was a soft summer because that color palette has the colors I wear. However, I've since determined that my primary aspect is light and my secondary aspect is cool (the first thing I notice about myself is a bright/lightness, and I'm cool toned). Therefore, I'm a light summer. Soft summer has a muted primary aspect and a cool secondary one.

don't use apps, they're not very reliable. especially if you're olive skinned or a poc (who they basically just lump into deep autumn or winter).
warm + muted = autumn
warm + bright = spring
cool + muted = summer
cool + bright = winter. it's easy to find your subseason just by eyeballing once you know what season you're in. like if you're a deep autumn (which is high contrast with darker hair and eyes against lighter skin in comparison) the soft autumn palette will look way too desaturated and boring against you. the best way to find out your season is by doing drapes tbh (doesn't have to be your whole wardrobe, you can just do cream vs ivory white or black vs dark brown, etc) but the concept theconceptwardrobe is good at breaking things down

>>374418
I think drawing inspiration from something means a deep understanding of the style you're contemplating. If you like Bjork's pants, for example, you know that it's the combination of the cut, the color, the pattern, the fit, the fabric what makes you think ''Oh, I like that'', but all those categories may rank differently in appreciation (for example, you probably would like something shorter/larger in colder tones, but would keep the same flower pattern, anything). And when it comes to building a look it's exactly the same, you may like the combination as a whole but every aspects of it would catch your attention differently (''I wouldn't wear those shoes but the top is ideal''). So basically you need to slowly build a wardrobe by experimenting while following your intuition. I think it's impossible to become a copycat when your inspiration is alternative fashion and you need to thrif in order to acquire the pieces you're looking for. People that have no originality at all imitate everything from their inspiration source (hairstyle, makeup, clothing, color palette, shoes, accesories…), but someone with criteria that knows that inspiration and appreciation for something will only get you so far because you actually need to feel and learn what looks best will eventually build their own style. And you probably enjoy different styles, that's another aspect to consider, there's some uniqueness about mixing styles. Pic unrelated

Which boots to go for?? I can't decide between Jadon Pisa and 1b60 Bex. I found both on sale for around the same price and I've been wanting both styles since I was literally 13. I mostly wear pants but I figure the tall ones would be ok with wide leg/bell bottoms.

AYRT and you're right, jadons are definitely more versatile. I'm still very undecided though, I find both cool in their own regard. The height of the 1b60s is a bit awkward but I always liked the idea of tall docs. On the other hand, the jadons are iconic and have that tall platform.

Well, what type of shoe is missing from your wardrobe? Every day black boots, or flashier boots for flashy occasions? For the record, I feel like your heart is set on the 1b60s and you just want someone to validate your unconventional purchase. No judgement from me. Follow your heart and wear what you love, make your tween self proud.

I don't actually need boots, I guess that's why I can't decide. I have some sleeker suede knee highs, everyday chelsea docs and a fun printed pair of regular docs. I was dead set on jadons till I saw the price of 1b60s. My one worry is how practical they'd be to wear and style. I know I can throw jadons on pretty much anything. And to be honest I dress far less edgy nowadays.

You already have two other pairs of docs (and probably at least a pair of sneakers), that's enough pairs of shoes that practicality/versatility stops being a concern imo.

I like the style of old Hongkong actress Joey Wong but I fear that it only looks good on her because she is a beautiful star and otherwise is too laidback for a normie adult woman. I also don't really know there I can find clothes like these? It is somewhat similar to the style some 90s loving teens have but without crop tops and all that.

Another issue I have is that I know which summer clothes I like but anything suitable for cold winter is so ugly to me. Anything more warm than a denim or leather jacket looks so posh or just old imo. Most young women seem to wear nearly ankle length scandi style coats this winter and I hate those. I also hate pullovers, warm cardigans, basically everything I'm forced to wear due to the cold. Anons here seem to like japanese style, like long dresses and stuff, but I never wore skirts and dresses all my life, even as a little girl I was put in pants, so I feel like I can't do that.

Where I’m from, 90s and even 80s real vintage is still fairly easy to come by at the local thrift stores, usually Salvation Army and another school-owned and VERY fairly priced one where lots of old folks donate things or their things get sent when they pass. Just last year I got a super cute super comfy fine-check gingham button-front play suit with a sailor lattice detailed collar and wide pleated legs that make it look like a dress. It is by a label I was able to confirm as being from the 80s (G. Pellini) for around 4$ US. I noticed living in Europe thrift stores are more like true vintage and the prices are more boutique. Sorry for sperg about the romper it literally just makes me so happy to even think about it being warm enough to wear again, it’s so cute and fits so flatteringly.

Anons with really wide hips in comparison to their waist, where do you find pants that fit flatteringly and last? I usually have to settle for low-waisted pants but I want some high-waisted ones preferably, because when I buy low-waisted ones the leg part is too baggy. I have a 14-inch difference between my waist and my hips and the rare solution is being lucky and finding 60s vintage cigarette pants in thrift boutiques. I have to cinch in the belt so much when I find pants that fit my hips, but then it makes my thighs appear larger than they are because I’m more slender in those areas. I can’t really explain it but my waist goes from being small to flaring out immediately and there seems to be no modern, high-quality pants that can cater to that. I don’t know if it’s worth it to learn how to make my own pants.

As for Asian brands, small sizes for coats tend to be out of stock fairly often so it seems like I'm not the only one with that issue, but they helped me getting really nice trousers and sweaters before so I also occasionally check their websites. I'd like to wear neutral, business casual clothes that make me look my age. Kid's sections seem to be either the same things as what's sold to adult women but just a little smaller or the same size, or the most childish, ugly, bright pink frilly garbage ever, no in-between.

I’ve started making and knitting my own clothes and embracing the kind of raggedy hand knitted look. But for some reason I feel kind of embarrassed in public at times especially when I’m around very groomed stylish people, because I feel like I look like a hobo/slob. I don’t care as much as I used to. But I think it’s because I grew up poor and having raggedy or dirty looking clothes was always something I was terrified of being shamed for and I always made a huge effort to look as neat and groomed and clean as possible so people wouldn’t make fun of me. I don’t like the clean groomed girl look tbh and have no interest in wearing it, but I still get these weird pangs of insecurity at times. The only girls I knew who dressed like slobs were ultra rich girls who had nothing to prove. But ofc I wasnt one of them.

I've seen those in the sewing community, old ladies helping people by pointing out how some small details give away the fact that your clothes are handmade (nothing wrong with that, but sometimes people want them to look less obviously handmade). I've only been crocheting for some months and I plan to make my first knitted scarf next month so I'm an absolute beginner but I've noticed that I feel more comfortable wearing my stuff if I use good quality yarn (NO ACRYLIC EVER) and I make sure the colors complement me well.

Thanks nona, the clothes I like aren’t really the fitted kind. I joined a hippie commune of ravers and most of us make our own clothes and give pieces to each other. They are really good at knitting and sewing, and they dress in very free fitting, unstructured type clothing, which I also really like a lot. I also get pieces from them because they make really nice crochet and silk pieces from other clothes, everyone here dresses in that kind of raggedy style lol. But they’re mostly all rich kids and have no insecurity about being perceived as poor in public by others. For some reason I feel weird going out in public wearing the kind of stuff they do, but it’s annoying because I like it and feel very comfortable in it. It’s all my own neurosis, I just wish I could shake it and wear whatever I want without worrying about judgment.

What kind of "girly" clothes could look good on someone who is average-curvy and tall? The only stuff I see are kawaii or lolita adjacent clothes that only really look good on skinny petite girls and women. I love cute stuff and pastels but it's hard to incorporate it in a way that doesn't look childish or outlandish. Sometimes I think "just wear what you want" but then I see pastel fashion girls my size at conventions and it just looks… childish and ugly (and I'm into the style so I shouldn't feel that way, ya know?). Is it possible to make it look good or is it really just for petite women?

In my opinion the kawaii lolita stuff looks childish on everyone, even petite women… isn't it kinda the point? First off I would focus on what suits you : are pastel colors flattering on you ? I think they are really hard to pull off for a lot of people and they can make you look really bad (especially if it's a full pastel look). Finding something that suits your coloring and shape is the most important thing to feel confortable imo, so you don't have to exclude a whole style that you like but just adapt it to yourself. I'd look into preppy and romantic keywords on pinterest, those styles feel girly but mature at the same time (like I just searched up romantic curvy outfits and found a ton of nice inspo). You can tone down a look by using more muted colors, neutrals, with some pastel accessories, or mix up basic pieces with cutesy girly stuff, or wear pastel with fitted clothes in a more elegant/sexy way like picrel. It's all about finding a balance between girly and mature. I'd also look for vintage fashion inspo, you'll find more curvy models and Definetely try to find inspo from people who have the same kind of build and features as you do, for me it's way easier to shop and find what could suit me and differenciate what I'd like to see on myself vs what looks good because someone else wore it.

Maybe you could take some inspiration from the adult girly/大人ガーリー style if you're into j-fashion? There are lots of cute and feminine aspects to it but it's more mature looking/less costume-like than lolita or other kawaii j-fashion styles.

Otona kawaii/"adult girly", retro-inspired styles, and other subtle kawaii classics like big sweaters, tulle skirt etc.

Just avoid the very stereotypically childish things like big peter pan collars, high twintails, leg warmers and that stupid jirai kei make-up and you'll be fine.

Surely there must be outfits or styles you can think of that aren't kawaii/lolita/jfashion but are still girly or feminine to you, even if it isn't in a very youthful/childish way, right? Take those outfits and get similiar pieces but in pastel instead. People think too much in boxes so it's hard to imagine a more mature/grownup/mainstream feminine look in pastels when it's always presented to you in neutral or dark colors.

Boot indecisive anon here, I got the ankle boots (jadon pisa) and they don't fit. I got my usual dr marten size but they're too narrow and short as well. And they don't suit me kek, they look like clown shoes on my bigfoot self. Newer dr marten models all seem to be more narrow than the ogs. So in conclusion: if you have flat feet or can sometimes go half a size up, order jadons in a bigger size and get insoles, don't be like me.

Color wise, pastels can be tricky but I think anyone can make them work. You just have to find the right undertone and brightness for your complexion. I look horrid in pastel pepto bismol lana del rey 2014 pink, but light, muted greens and slightly darker muted pinks compliment my skintone well. On the topic of cute fashion, I don't see why the only options being presented are kawiwi and pastels. Western styles can be romantic and girly too. Cottage-core is dead but I'd consider it romantic and feminine. You could take elements from it like ruffle blouses, long skirts, flower prints, cozy knits and adjust to whatever your vision is. Searching modest coquette outfits on pinterest brings up cute, feminine fashion that's not too outlandish.

Well sometimes searching for inspo I have the same confusion lol.

The "indie sleaze" aesthetic is too broad and varied to be defined. It's only a style retrospectively.

I feel like this is only true through the lens of 2020s aesthetics/core-styles that exist within this tiny framework of hyper specific elements which define the style and from which next to no deviation is allowed or it gets labeled as something different entirely.

You're sorta right and wrong. Indie sleaze was a scene, first and foremost.

Most fast fashion brands did it at some point so you can just search any of them and filter by color since you have a precise color scheme in mind. I used to own picrel in 2008 or so (I'm a big fan of brown x teal x gold as well) and the listing I stole this picture from is only 3 euros !

I feel like this is a dress you shouldn't layer, any layering is going to cover up the beautiful neckline and the sleeveless shoulders which is what makes this dress stand out. Unless you want to layer a blouse underneath the dress but I'm personally not a fan of that look.

I don't know anything about fashion, but I have a hobby of browsing ebay for weird items. I came across this shirt and the pattern is atrocious so I will not be buying it, but I'm super intrigued by this unique neck. Is there a term for this? I'd like to search for another top with a neck like this that doesn't have such a hideous pattern.

It's barely an aesthetic to me personally. It's like a fusion of american apparel ads, heroin chic, coachella and whatever was generally popular from fast fashion brands of the time. I do think a lot of the fashion decisions made by the pioneers were unironically influenced by drugs, but also the clothes that a lot of popular rock bands wore, particularly in the UK. Cheap clothes were completely indistinguishable from expensive clothes, everything was practically thrown together with no thought. I personally don't think tiktok teenagers can do this justice at all since it was never really a trend meant or that involved them, it was primarily based around a music scene and lifestyle that they know absolutely nothing about. Everything was effortless and having no handbook or guide to do it correctly will just lead to a lot of them looking like they are cosplaying which is generally the case whenever a trend becomes popular with them.

Fashionable anons, is there a way/good placement to wear two dangle earrings on the same ear without looking stupid or hearing the earrings hit each other every step I take?

No. 382411

>>382408
don't button it up all the way, perhaps. If possible, rolling up the sleeves a little bit could help. Some kind of jewelry (necklace, brooch/pin). Wear another coat over it and make a big show of handing that one over.

I have only had this issue with a similar dress once, but the sleeves are 3/4 length, which I think helps. Obviously you need to test out how any of the potential solutions look irl,possibly none of them will suit the dress.

off topic and probably silly, but I hate it when dresses that have interesting details like this one are modelled by such gormless bland models. I hate the vacant stare idk. Guess in a couple years I will just be happy it's human and not AI.

Hello, this might be a stupid question but I really want to wear yellow, since it is my favorite color. I am very pale with brown hair so I usually try to play it safe with pink, green, gray, brown or blue.

skintight jeans/jeggings will never make you look super skinny since they're meant to cling to your legs and butt, that's why they were popular with the 'thicc' instabaddie types. if you want the tall skinny legend vibe you should go for narrow straight denim that leaves some breathing room.

I feel kinda silly posting this but since there's a fight about jeans going on anyway what the hell.
I hate shopping for jeans but I need new ones. Approx 5 years ago, I bought several pairs of the Old Navy Curvy-fit mid-rise boot cut and those were great. I was going to just buy more of them but they've been discontinued. They only have high-rise cuts for the curvy fit now and I can tell just by looking at the pictures that their other mid-rise boot cut jeans are not going to fit (plus they're over 30% polyester?????? the ones I have are only 14% polyester).
Nonnies, can you tell me where to look to replace my jeans? The absolute most I can afford is $30/pair because I need 2-3 pairs (I know that's a big ask but I'm poor). I've looked in the racks at like TJ Maxx and such but that stuff is all on-trend and I don't think I need to explain the problem there.

If anything my tastes shift closer to nanchatte businesswoman, though I still want that uniform look.

Years ago J-Box offered a service where you could get an authentic school uniform custom made by an actual tailor and shipped to you from Japan for around 400USD or so. I'm not into serafuku but I'd jump at the chance to get a good quality authentic skirt. All I see online are tiny miniskirts or maxis with a million thin accordion pleats.

depends on your wardrobe. If you are the red flavor of mallgoth and have many red x black items go with right, but the other two are more versatile in terms of accent color choice, especially the skirt but it looks a bit uncomfortable compared to pants.

I think the smaller ring chains on the left pants look better than the right where the chains hang weirdly due to the elongated ring shape.

I also got my "first" low rise jeans recently but it's a bootcut/flare type from a fast fashion chain, I was surprised at how good it looked and how comfortable it was and I haven't had any asscrack-related accident yet.

My office leans towards the "casual" side of business casual though, so idk if you could pull it off in a workplace where everyone is suited and booted. You could try looking up the company on social media and see if they have any staff pictures to find out what your new colleagues wear to work. Or you could even drop in as a customer and observe depending on whether you need to make an appointment or not. I'm sure there's gotta be at least one other person who carries their weight on their belly and is keeping to the dress code just fine, unless it's really small.

Flared leg only looks good on people who are Flamboyant Natural types or hourglass shaped women that wanna show off their body bc only fitting tops look good with flared jeans. I wouldn’t wear a baggy shirt/sweater with those. I’m a similar shape as you naturally and I try to stick to straight/slim leg pants that cut off before my ankle. I find that those are the most flattering on me. I think trying to trick people into thinking you have an hourglass shape is futile and that embracing your shape is better. Look into kibbe types and essences to get an idea of what type of shapes/cuts suit you. And you don’t have to religiously abide by kibbe or the essences but they’re helpful in ruling out what definitely looks bad on you.

This is really cute nonna thanks! It’s a government job and I’m just transferring from one agency to another but I’m not sure how strict they’ll be. Do you find pants to hurt your stomach? I don’t like wearing denim/tight pants because it hurts around my midsection, also it’s so hard to find something since I measure 40 inches but my hips are 28 and my legs are thin (so like your stereotypical hispanic aunt). At the same time though I’ve never worn dresses/skirts and I always feel weird when wearing them.

I’m 4’11” if that helps. I’ve tried taking a look at the kibbe thing but I can’t wrap my head around it, plus almost all examples are of thinner women. And I guess now looking at myself I might be more rectangle? All I know is I have no hips and ass but a bulging stomach.

Bydee is an Australian brand and I loooove their bathers. They make them from recycled fabrics and they hold up nicely. The way the site works is more of a "choose your own" thing where you pick the cut you like and then the fabric type. Picrel is the cut I went with and there's plenty of different styles to choose from.

Nonnas, how do you deal with wanting to wear styles/cuts that don't match your body shape? I am an average weight and height, but my chest is substantially bigger. I've gotten a reduction but it's still not a small size. I've hated it ever since I developed them because I am simply not a sexy person and don't want to be viewed that way (even though I appreciate more romantic/sultrier looks; they're just not my personality). For example, I love current normie Japanese fashion but I've tried styling myself that was and it simply doesn't work because I'm not a small frame straight line shape. However, I find the idea of dressing according to my more voluptuous shape nauseating. I have had bad experiences being sexualized because of my breasts all throughout school. Though some styles like a 50s vintage cut or more romantic styles would flatter me, it wouldn't portray me the way I want to show myself to the world, you know? I wish I could dress as modestly and effortlessly as let's say picrel but then I'd make myself into a potato.
Does anyone have any tips on how to bridge the gap between what one's body type and actual personality?

I'll be the first to admit that I dress pretty basic. But now that I've developed a capsule wardrobe, it's great. It's a lot easier for me to get dressed in the morning now and it's very easy to mix and match my clothing because I wear colors that blend well together. I have also gotten more compliments on my style, one of my friends said she loved my cute feminine style and she liked how she could look at an item in the store and think "anon would wear that". Another one of my friend said I always looked well put together because of my outfits! It's brought me a lot of joy nonas, I always dreamed of having such a stress-free wardrobe where I can throw different pieces together and not have to worry. Plus, I don't really feel the urge to buy new clothes anymore. picrel isn't mine

I hope this belongs on this thread but can anyone recommend fashion content creators that are good for someone who is looking to restart her wardrobe or style?

No. 387630

>how do you deal with wanting to wear styles/cuts that don't match your body shape?
I wear what I want because it makes me happy and confident, no other approach to fashion has that effect on me. I don't know about you but in my country/family surroundings ''to match your body shape'' equals wearing clothing that looks tight and enhances a typically femenine figure. Once I became determined to wear what I felt comfortable with and to experiment with styles that I found interesting I stopped feeling constrained in terms of fashion. My mother hates thrifting but it's been my main source of clothing for almost a decade, so finding some reassurance at home while I was growing up depended entirely on myself. I learned to value my own opinion above everyone else's because otherwise I would live my life feeling uncomfortable (never give in to other's opinions on shoes, you'll suffer physically and aesthetically for months) and turns out a lot of people love telling others what to do even when the people who follow their advice look visibly unhappy. I've also developed some sensory issues over the years and I almost entirely wear 100% cotton everything, that's an aspect of my style that nobody can change my mind about. Learning about color theory has helped me a lot. I'm a textbook sof summer so even if I look too hobo for an occasion at least I know the colors I'm wearing compliment my skin complexion and my hair lol
>I wish I could dress as modestly and effortlessly as let's say picrel but then I'd make myself into a potato.
What's wrong with potatoes? I love the trashbag silhouette, we don't have to show the curve of our waists all the time. There's no shame in dressing comfy and practical.
>Does anyone have any tips on how to bridge the gap between what one's body type and actual personality?
I think only the passing of time will help you develop a cohesive style. People who buy their whole wardrobe at once following a fad get stuck in a neverending cycle of trends and hoarding then dumping cheap clothes. If you want to find your personal style you'll have to experiment for a while until you reach a certain point where your new additions become a small improvement of your style. A good sign is when you buy less and you use those new pieces right from the start, and you never regret buying something.

sure nona! I was kind of embarrassed to give examples because my style is very boring compared to some anons posts. I live in a cold country so I usually wear jeans to prioritize comfort. Picrel are photos I found online and they're closest to what I wear on the daily, I try to add feminine touches like lace, flowy shirts, layered necklaces/bracelets and I wear a lot of pink. I like doing cute hairstyles too, my hair is super long now so they're fun to do. I know it's not very interesting but it suits me well and it makes it easy to find items that match. I'd be open to getting more adventurous though especially with my bottoms.

Nonnies, do any of you wear men's pants? What are your recs for choosing and wearing them? How safe it is to buy them online (in terms of fitting)? I'm 160 something cm tall and a bit afraid it's going to look funny because of the crotch area kek

No. 388437

>>388427
men's pants are really nice in terms of fitting because compared to women's sizing guessing game, men's tend to have inseam and waist measurements in inches so you generally know what to expect. The roomy crotch does make it obvious you're wearing men's pants but if you're going for a butch/gnc look that doesn't matter tbh.
Also if you're curvy, pear shaped etc you may have fit issues because they are cut for mens' sad asses. I share jeans with my bf a lot but I have no curves and narrow hips, and even then the jeans that fit me on the waist can be tight on the butt. So I'd recommend sticking to looser/baggy cuts. Also length- I usually go for 30 in (often the shortest option) and I'm 170cm. If you don't mind me asking is there a reason you're looking for men's pants in particular?

seconding prev anon, the butt/thigh narrowness is the main problem for me, it's not a big deal if the pants are loose but i've had bad experiences even with baggy mens jeans. i think they're worth the struggle, the quality is good and they're super comfortable if you find a good pair and are taller.

Maybe out of your price range, but I dress like this frequently and imo, 1970s Gunne Sax dresses are the pinnacle of this look, both in terms of style and quality. Expensive, but I finally bit the bullet in December of last year, and it was 100% worth it. I now own 4, lol.

I don't really know how to explain how this happened. It's like all of a sudden I wanted to experiment with dark colors, jewel tones, and more mature and elegant cuts. And I'm realizing just how happier and prettier I feel like this. Jfashion didn't really suit me and I was sick of wearing clothes cut for someone much more petite than me.
Some of these pics are aspirational (cannot justify buying new from really expensive brands like rouje) and I have a little more color in my wardrobe (i still love pink, along with reds, purples, dark blues and cool greens), but it's overall about the vibe and the cuts I wear the most.

I love this kind of style. It's still feminine and dainty but it's more simple and elegant. I'm also coming from jfashion, though I am technically petite enough to look okay in it I feel like it doesn't really suit my personality or reflect who I am anymore. I feel like it makes me look too young and cutesy which is what I wanted in my teens, not so much in my mid twenties. I've also lost some of the roundness in my face as I've gotten older, so the hyper cutesy stuff really feels wrong on me.

This dress is quite perfect, actually, but depending on the location you may need a shawl to cover your shoulders, mostly because some churches don't allow people to enter or sit on certain places with uncovered shoulders, but also because you may feel cold at some point.
Tbh, it also depends on the time, I feel like this dress is practical because with some accessories you can either make it a night dress or a day dress, meanwhile the other dress feels more like it's for a day party, but maybe not for a wedding because of the flowers, plus if it's a garden party/wedding you may end up getting camouflaged a bit with the background in pictures.

The fabric is slightly heavier and drapes better than paper thin shien polyester I guess. But I look cute in it so I'll keep it

Nonnies how do I escape the pit of always wearing black? I have very pale skin and black hair and eyes so I usually feel washed out by colours, even ones that should suit me according to colour analysis (I think I'm a winter) and it's so easy to throw on all black and just call it a day. Has anyone else crawled out of this cavern?

Recently started using a closet organization app, I think it's been very helpful to start defining a more clear style and to declutter my wardrobe. My style is all over the place, and I have a lot of stuff I never wear. I've already gotten inspiration on how to put together outfits with those lesser worn pieces which is exciting! I also donated a bunch of stuff that I just don't like anymore or doesn't fit the vision I have of my style going forward.

Does anyone else here use an organization app? Any recommendations? The one I use currently is pretty bare bones but simple to use, however it doesn't have any AI outfit suggestions etc, I'm wondering if those are useful at all?

The difficult thing is that it isn't just the raw material itself that influences how much the sweater will pill but also the way it's been processed, and you can't really tell that (as far as I know) beforehand unless it's already pilling in store, so you could get a really nice expensive merino or alpaca wool sweater that still ends up pilling because the yarn wasn't made well. A fabric shaver is pretty helpful with making sweaters look presentable again and they're inexpensive.

I've been thinking the same thing about that ethnic 'aztec' or 'navajo' print that was everywhere at the time. The galaxy and ethnic leggings were peak early 10s, and that says a lot about that era of fashion. I can't imagine them making a comeback but a few years ago we were saying the same things about early 00s fashion and how it was the worst decade in fashion history. I feel like late 00s trends are already coming back in style with colorful thights, ballet flats, stripes, thin oval glasses (…) and overall 80s influences. So the early 10s revival is coming. Indie sleeze was mentioned a lot but I think overall more casual styles will come back. For example the pumpkin spice latte girl style (casual boho) was also really popular at that time.

This is a weird question for the fashion thread, but you know the phrase there’s no such thing as an unmarked woman? How do you unmark yourself? How would you dress if you want to be completely anti-fashion? Like outside of fashion/trends/style entirely. I know some people will say just jeans and tees but those are also influenced by trends and cuts that go in and out. I’m not trying to look alternative or unique, I want to be generic, but in like a randomly generated NPC way. Like people look at you and think this person has no idea what they’re doing at all.

it's so generic i don't feel like looking for an example, i basically just wear sneakers, grimy jeans, a t-shirt/sweatshirt and an optional baseball cap. maybe with a slight military influence when i'm feeling edgy. i used to love beading my shoelaces, xd-randomly wearing ties, aggressively decorating my bags, etc. but the quirkiness just feels like way too much now, i can only describe it as a fear of looking childish and a weird toxic masculinity (i suppose because my current style would be considered pretty masculine?). maybe a single fun keychain or a necklace would be okay but i don't have other ideas. ultimately natural style progression is normal and good, i'll either have to let go of my old quirky items or find subtle ways to incorporate them.

this video is centred around men but i believe women would benefit greatly from adopting a similar mentality. i've followed creators of both sexes and the difference in how they present themselves to the world is astounding, there's so much emphasis on accentuating vs distracting (from your flaws), compensating, working against your body in general. if you don't have the features to pull off the latest trend there's a lot of emphasis on how to "make it work" so you can still look like everyone else. shit like 9000 different types of bangs that change the proportions of your face through optical illusions, minimising your chest or hips, winged eyeliner tricks for hooded eyes nvm the entire fucking makeup industry.

just recently i was watching videos about types of sunglasses frames and noticed the moids were straight to the point about what type suits what face shape, but with the female creators suddenly the glasses should make you look cuter, younger, distract from your horrid midface and ugly eye shape, etc. i always thought that stuff was bullshit because i'm really cool and smart but i know some of you actually buy into it, so please, just be aware of the way the media has been poisoning your self esteem from birth, you deserve better. anyway it's a pretty good video.

think back real hard on your past experiences, including your childhood. were there any days you remember feeling really confident, comfortable in your skin and your outfit? maybe you remember a movie character whose look stuck with you for a long time? look at your current wardrobe, even if you don't love your clothes, there must be SOMETHING appealing to you about them. the internet is good for inspiration but it's very overwhelming, plus liking something on other people doesn't automatically mean it'll work for you, so you should start within. good luck!

you have to understand that society treats female body types as trends, the ideal keeps changing every damn decade. i'm not saying that whoever came up with these body typing systems (they weren't actually invented by david kibbe btw) was free from bias, definitely not, but your own personal biases/insecurities play a huge role when you think certain bodytypes are mannish or otherwise bad. being smaller isn't better, being curvy isn't better. having broad shoulders is not worse. literally none of this is objective, it's all brainwashing. i may be in the minority, but personally at no point while reading descriptions of for example, romantic types, have i thought them to be "desirable", as in something i want for myself. if i could magically choose my own body type i'd choose natural any day.

Necro but I've been following the Pantone color of the year choice since like 2012 and they never seem to be a big hit, at least in fashion. The periwinkle 2022 is probably the only one that really showed up in a lot of clothing, and I think that happened a bit later, like 2023.

https://www.danner.com/women/work/flashpoint-ii-10-all-leather-black-8.html

now if you dont want a fire boot; if you want a good chainsaw boot, good for winter work outdoors or winter in general, id recommend the danner quarry, super insulated, comes in alloy toe or non alloy toe, not rated for fire

https://www.danner.com/women/work/women-s-quarry-usa-7-black.html

if you want a good all seasons/summer work boot id recommend the rainforest, its a logger style boot, like the flashpoint,not a fire boot tho, but i find if your just gonna wear it for looks and fashion, hiking its a VERY good boot!!!

https://www.danner.com/women/work/rain-forest-8-black-8.html

now understandably everything Ive shown you is super expensive, nothing under $300, if your looking for a more budget friendly logger style boot Carolinas or Gerogias have loggers for under $200

I want to see different aesthetics! Not just the same thing in 10 different stores.. Sadly though Japan is turning that way. Not fully, but a lot of the stores are turning into what >>397314 said. I would like to buy vintage Japanese clothes but sadly I'm too tall/ have too wide chest and hips for it. I've never found pants/shorts that fit my hips.

I'm an eurofag but I like that the variety of jeans available in chain stores has increased compared to what we had in the 2010s when if you wanted anything other than skinny jeans you had to drag your ass to levi's and drop hundreds. And if you wanted an edgy wash you'd have to go to more expensive brands. Now I've got a bunch of different cuts with different waistlines for all kind of outfits. Lack of variety was the reason I got into alt fashion in the early 2010s, but putting together normie outfits became just as interesting now that not everything is the same exact shape. I own so many variations of jeans + black tee now and they all look vastly different, it's pretty cool.

Go in store, you can't judge quality by online pictures alone. Things like fabric that's already pilling or snagging in store, wonky stitching, no or wonky lining, thin material, cheapening out on details like pockets, belts and buttons are things best or only seen in store. Remember that an expensive price tag doesn't mean the item is good quality and even brands/stores that are known for selling good stuff are usually a mixed bag. You really have to go there and analyse each individual piece. Oh and just because a piece is made from natural fabric, doesn't automatically mean it's good quality either!

I see a lot of women wearing kimono type loose jacket-dresses or abaya type things over jeans and a tank top. It’s pretty much covering up your whole body while also giving your pores some air to breathe. The outfit in your pic looks too heavy and sweaty for summer especially if the skirt is made of polyester and the jacket on top would have me baking too.

If you don’t want to go down the exotic absya type route, I’ve noticed that 25+ Japanese women like to cover up fully especially in summer, so you could look at Japanese street fashion ideas.

Is there a version or style of the y2k revival that isn't going to age like milk or isn't super fast-fashion tiktok sheincore? Picrel is a bunch of stuff I would call 'sheincore'. I think the main issue is that it's got too much going on and it's too cheaply made whereas something more timeless would have way less detail and way more functionality. I kinda hate all the fast fashion microtrends being pushed our way. A lot of this stuff would look hideous on an actual woman just going about her day. As for the positives of the y2k revival, I personally like the cargo pants that are in style right now and I think layering can actually look really great when not overdone. What are your thoughts on the shein/tiktok-ification of y2k and on how to actually style it in a way that's way more understated and timeless?

I think acubi is pretty neat. It's minimalistic and basic enough but you can add variety with irregular/asymmetrical forms, layering, combination of different textures (denim, velvet, lace, etc), some simple jewelry and go for slightly different looks - more casual, sporty, feminine/romantic or even business casual. I don't think it'll be a sin if you use a top or a hat that is not GREY heh, it probably won't be true acubi anymore but who cares

Good for you nonna! Really glad to see someone else make that change. I made the switch a few years ago and it used to be more difficult but now there's so many online options for thrifting like Vinted, Sellpy and Depop that it doesn't make sense not to. It's much easier than going in person. Even for fast fashion brands that are currently shitty, there's a lot of older pieces you can get from back when they still made quality stuff. Older Uniqlo tees are so cheap second-hand but soooo quality, I never see women's shirts with cotton fabric that thick anymore.
You can find higher end brands a lot cheaper than RRP, too. I really can't understand why anyone would buy from Shein or FF except maybe not knowing how to search for god thrift stuff.

Every excuse I see from consoomer-chans is just
>b-but I'm plus size
>I can only afford Shien
>Shein has cute stuff that fits me for so cheap and thrift stores are soooo expensive
It's cap. I was not only plus size a year ago but I'm also short so finding clothes my size was and still is a nightmare. You know what definitely won't fit? Unlined polyester rags from shein that emphasize every fat roll and panty line you have and/or make you reek of BO. Thrifting is fun like treasure hunt and every thrift store I've been to mostly has either men's or XL and up sizes. Worst case scenario I taught myself how to sew and first tailored my clothes, now I can make them. Useful skill you can learn for free and thrifted sewing machines also happen to be so much better than new plastic ones. Just no excuse whatsoever to buy from FF brands.

No. 404829

I'm making this change too nonnie. Part of it is for selfish reasons, i.e. i hate how bad the quality of everything is and i'm really picky about materials, but also its kind of unnecessary when there are already so many options for clean, good quality 2nd hand items.

Even stuff from alt glossies like i-D, the anti-fashion, wasn't revived well either.
>>404802
delias was way cuter and more form fitting, even in baggier models than acubi and most zoomercore "y2k" ever will be
>>404822
Learning how to sew is also an option, there are now tons of indie patterns cartering to plus sizes and they actually have trendy clothing. If you have space and money for entire sewing setup it's a better choice and you can save a bit of money compared to higher end ready to wear clothing but it costs your time.
Thrifting in my country is actual nightmare, no matter sizes you wear, as we get all rejected clothing from western european countries and in past 6 years there is worse and worse clothing. Back in the 90s and 00s you could get really good stuff though. Vinted is completely Depopified by scalpers so I stopped trying.

a lot of pieces adjacent to the "office siren" trend which was born from y2k revival will have longevity as gen z ages. things like busy graphic tees and coquette bows are juvenile and will naturally get dropped as zoomers continue to get older. cardigans, blazers, leather jackets, button down shirts, and loose fit jeans are classic pieces and don't evoke the same sense of pastiche that a lot of clothes from the y2k revival trend do. they look like good outfits because they are, and not because they could be plucked directly from a 00's sitcom costume set or as if they were obviously curated for some hyper-specific pinterest trend.

Maybe off topic, but seems like the best place to ask… is there any wardrobe / inventory management software that is usable OFFLINE, on Windows OS? I'd love to start cataloguing what I have, but everything I can find it some dumb mobile app that requires location access, Wi-Fi connection, an account with phone number and email, your firstborn child, spams you with advertisements, and also tries to make you sign up for a subscription model.

Thinking outside the box, a gallery type application would probably work, but as they aren't designed for this purpose, would be a bit clunky set-up. I just want to be able to visually see 'albums' that contain my clothing sorted by category e.g. bottoms -> skirts -> long skirts / short skirts, with a description and inventory count.

Anyone found or use something like this?

About 9 months ago, I bought this amazing vintage 80s Dallas leather biker jacket (identical to the one in picrel) for about $135 USD at a local market. It's in better condition than the one in the picture. The lining is perfectly intact, and there's only a few small spots of wear at the wrists. It's a great vintage piece. However, it's a little bit too small in the arms/shoulders for me, and it squeaks in a way that makes me feel like I'm trying way too hard to be cool. It just sits in my closet. I don't think I've worn it once. Buying it was truly a moment of shopping for the person I want to be, not the person I am. Lesson learned.

I am finally ready to part ways with it, but I'm not sure how to go about re-selling it. Should I just try to get my money back? Could I sell it for more? I have sold a few things on depop and eBay before, but those were all just normal clothes, not a quality vintage piece. I could use some guidance.
