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)?

No. 359730

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. I got this skirt from loveshackfancy that I've had my eye on all year at a crazy sale price and I really hope it fits, I've never bought anything from this brand before but I've been in love with the skirt's print since I laid eyes on it and am so happy it'll be mine soon. just needed to gush a little.

No. 360033

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 !

Casual office setting in very icy canadian winters. I'm just looking for layering advice that won't make the outfit boring and outdated. I'd like to channel the 90s/office siren/sexy librarian vibes.

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.

That's what I thought, buying it would be pretty much useless then.

The reason this worked back then is because those girls weren't trying so hard.

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.

Nonnies do any of you know where I can find more pictures of Mugler F/W 1982, the catsuits look so cute but I can only find a few images of them which makes me sad.

I loved that mugler show. the fact that it actually looks really warm is a big plus. my favorite is the f/w 86 star knits, super cool and cozy looking in my opinion

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? I really want to get a second ear piercing just to wear 4 dangle earrings at once, but so far every placement I try out doesn't work. Sorry if this is a stupid question but the stupid question thread gave me no answers.

Perhaps ordering dangling earrings by their length as the get closer to the lob like picrel might help. I'm personally not a fan of multiple danging earrings (unless they're hoops or closed chains) in one ear, but you do you anon.

samefag, but here's an example of how awkward dangling earrings can look if they're not spaced out, descending, or the same length. Also nonnie, does the sound bother you that much? I have never paid attention to it on other people. I don't think you have to worry too much, unless it's a sensory problem for yourself.

Oh I see! The earrings I was thinking of are the bigger ones like picrel, so the hitting sounds are kinda loud kek but I was hoping against hope that there'd be one non-awkward configuration. I'll pivot into looking to layer them by sizes and lengths, thank you anon!

I posted this dress before and so far when I’ve worn it people have offered to take my coat four times. It’s extremely awkward every time, how do I style this so it’s more clear I’m wearing a dress?

No. 382411

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.

A necklace should signal it's a dress.

It's weird though, I don't feel like the picture looks like something you'd easily mistake for a coat. Does it look very differen on you?
