Pic related, I adore this entire look. I like stockings, heels, boots, sneakers, dresses, pants, pretty much anything. I used to feel like I could only be confined to one thing but I grew up a bit and realized that I could look good in any style. I hope it doesn't come off as snobby because that isn't my intent. I felt, for lack of a better term, liberated by not having to stick with one style all of the time.
At the same time, I'm also very into the 80s hi-cuts as they suit my build more than hipster or skinny jeans, boyshort panties, etc. I miss when bikinis were cut like that and I've been so happy to see that they're coming back in style because I was getting to the point where I debated asking mom if she still had her from back in the day.

I would love to wear high-fashion girly like this, but I'm really heavily tattooed and I'm worried I'd look ridiculous.
I really like simple feminine fashions, like ankle-length skirts with fitted tops/slimknit jumpers. I struggle to find good quality skirts though, as they all seem to be made of this stretchy cotton material (viscose?) which isn't suitable for English winters. I also never know what shoes to wear with these skirts… any suggestions?

Any fashion savvy anon knows what this style is called?
I really like berets, high socks, oxford shoes, checked clothes, oversized wooly sweaters, shirts and high-waisted skirts (without going full schoolgirl/delicate lady mode, I often dress androgynous as well) but I have no idea what that style is called. I would like to know so I can find people who like it as well on insta. In the pic the shirt and accessories are over the top compared to what I mean but I couldn't find anything else.

I'm having real trouble finding relatively affordable clothes that I want to buy.
I'm looking for things that are interesting, architectural, monochromatic.
Brands like Noctex, Nuit Atelier, older Allsaints stuff. Basically gothninja/ strega.
Looking for Korean brands in particular, I found this one called Ultra Modern on Yesstyle but no more so far.
Can anyone help this noob?

I had a friend who was a similar build and she looked absolutely kickass when she would wear sundresses like pic related that flattered her bust and small waist. With a cardigan and usually flats and she had a textured bob haircut that was great with that body shape too. A lot of retro or pinup styles look great with your shape too, it doesn't have to be generic rockabilly Imelda May tryhard trash but subtle pinup silhouettes are great for flattering that figure. >>73678
Yeah I had this too and honestly it never changed until I moved to a bigger city rather than a small town. If the majority in the town or wherever you live dress very bland and generally frown upon alternative styles then I think there's sadly no hope as you'll always be the odd one out and you're up against generations of this being the norm. In a bigger city people usually may not always think your style is for them but will either not notice, not care, or admire it even though it isn't to their taste, they appreciate that it's different to see.
This was helpful
your friend sounds like a cunt.
it could be hourglass depending on your shoulders/ upper body.

Basic gyaru uniform
It’s a terrible style then. Early 2000’s style
clothes that don’t match. Cant are those boots looking nice with anything and the dress is just awkward as hell. >>73029
fungus shoes. >>74316
Even if her clothes actually fit her this outfit is pretty lame. The bagginess of those leggings looks so bad
Clothes that are clean, well fitted, modern, and aren’t covered in tacky embellishments like slogans, logos, studs, no cutesy useless accessories, interesting and bold shapes, monochrome,
Maison margiela, Ann demeulemeester, couple Rick owns bits, yohji Yamamoto, I like loads of stuff just not things that fit badly, or don’t coordinate at all.
Also the fungus shoes are cool. Fungus isn’t a negative. >>74342
Happy to help and hey, it’s a lot easier to say ‘lose weight’ than to actually lose it. Good on you for making the effort.
Depending on your torso to leg ratio you could also do very well with black tights and a skirt (any really) paired with all-black shoes, or from tucking a blouse into high waisted jeans.
No matter what shape you’re made in there’s something out there that looks excellent on you and feels good. If it’s not too expensive you could even consider getting your clothes in a larger size and having them tailored to fit so that nothing sits awkwardly between wide shoulders and a narrow torso.

i wasn't expecting to read this here! I actually just ordered a Margiela sweater, boots, and some ann d boots to add to my collection, what a surprise.
Sometimes I get into the loop of wearing cheap clothes like brandy melville or urban outfitters, and then I go out shopping and see other people wearing high fashion and immediately feel inferior. I'm just donating most of my cheap clothes now.
The tabi boots yessssss!! Vintage Dior is really something special too, like the ‘new look’
I absolutely love high fashion and couture too but you’re never inferior for not wearing it!
I’ve taken up sewing and pattern making to have the wardrobe I really want, it’s a good hobby and if you’re willing to learn everything you wear could be couture.
You can find some nice pieces at thrift stores
A good tailor really helps, and is often times cheaper than buying your size directly from the brand
Sure, Dollskill is cool if you want to spend twice the money than buying direct from the manufacturer
I'd rather trust an Instagram shop claiming that same top you saw on Aliexpress is totally one of a kind

what kind of casual styles/brands/cuts works well for smaller waists but fat arms and legs? i would love to just throw on a pair of jeans and a t shirt but i look like a fatass because my waist is the smallest part of me and if it isnt highlighted, i look like a blob. i cant wear tight dresses or belted dress all of the time, nor do i want to
i cant even find many shirts that hug the midsection, as everything is like, straight cut or loose bc skinny girls that have skinny limbs look great in that shit, but no matter how thin i get, my arms and legs still look disproportionate. i know a lot of JUST pear women can look great, but my arms are kinda chubby, so casual stuff is a nightmare
this is what im dealing with, basically, but i'm a bit thinner, though my legs are bigger than hers so i look even worse

I’m going to shill for a brand I like that I found through amazon, oddly enough! They’re called Mordenmiss, and they seem like they’re trying to fill a gap for bigger girls, too, which some might find useful so I thought I’d give them a shoutout.
I’m 5’6” and about 124lbs, and I love both strega and mori, this company has a lot of pieces that can work really well with strega in particular as I’ve not had much luck with thrifting. I generally get their one size fits all or if they have a size, a large so that I can layer well. They only thing I wish they’d make are those wife beater petticoats you see on aliexpress, but they’re also surprisingly receptive to user feedback so who knows? If we flood them with pictures maybe they’ll start making their own.http://www.mordenmiss.com/
or just go to your local amazon and search for mordenmiss.
pic related, it’s a top I wear all the time.

All mine do except one. >>78118
What sort are you wearing that make your waist look thin? In my experience, they don't cling to your skin so they go from your boobs to your hips in a straight line instead of curving inwards.
It definitely is real, not all ankle boots are made in the same shape and not all will fit you. Try a bunch of different ones until you find ones you like. Not all of them will go well with all types of trousers either.
It could also be a heel height issue, if they're too flat and the rest of the outfit is bulky it will make it look unbalanced.

I'm obsessed with 1940s British fashion. A time of war and rations, women had to be inventive and simple in order to express themselves. They were a generation of working women who had to go to factories or work in the fields. Yet, they still managed to make their functional dresses feminine and attractive. I love the construction and the patterns, there's a mix of urban and country.
But I feel like the era has been co-opted by "plus size" American women and now the style is seen as matronly or frumpy. I cry.
Some aspects of this style are represented in korean and japanese "office lady" dresses. I don't think it is intrinsically frumpy, but having a certain body type and the right makeup will help a lot.
What things do you like about the style? Did their dresses have pockets? (I suspect not, but I didn't google)
File: 1525301772962.jpg (36.67 KB, 542x800, default.jpg)
I like the structured lines and ingenuity. I have a tall, slim figure so I think the style would suit but I'm afraid itll be seen an outdated.
I'm a history major, so this is basically my shit. https://www.iwm.org.uk/history/how-clothes-rationing-affected-fashion-in-the-second-world-warhttps://www.express.co.uk/life-style/style/672724/wartime-fashion-rationing-World-War-II-clothes-1941
I love how even in war, fashion was still at the forefront of culture and society. That women were still adapting and expressing themselves, despite the rations and restrictions. Pockets and bows were banned because they were considered unnecessary
>“Imports were limited and raw materials and manufacturing capacity were needed for the war effort. As the war went on people became very creative.”
>Indeed, armed with handy tips such as how to unpick old jumpers, create decorative patches for concealing holes in worn-out garments and protect against the menace of moths, we became a nation of tailors.
I think it makes me proud of my country and what we have gone through.
>“It is often assumed that it was drab time but people used bright colours and patterns, partly as a way of putting on a brave face and cheering yourself up during wartime,” adds Amanda.
I love color and wear bright clothes often, including dresses. I usually stick to the more wrap-around 70s style but I'd love to add in some more structured, militaristic pieces.
>Another impact of rationing was to improve the quality of British-made clothes, which had to last, and make production more efficient.

I've worn these for dressing up as a pirate in larp. Please don't combine these with ugly regular jeans like in the pic.

For an apple shape, I recommend wearing stuff that directs the eye away from your belly. If you have slimmer shoulders and and presumably skinnier legs, an oversized sweater look might work.
Personally, I think dresses like pic related are nice for plus size apple types, try finding one that cinches under the bust instead of at the waist, which would help divert attention from the biggest problem area. Basically, avoid anything that’s going to define your stomach, go for styles that are flared at the ribs and try using interesting patterns elsewhere on your body.
AliExpress, I'm 5'0" and everything seems to fit.
Otherwise you could try children's clothes (not joking, I fit 11yrs+).

Not that anon, but how? You realize she said skirts right? Almost all tasteful skirts fit around the waist. If not, you get shit like this.

in my opinion, high waist is the way to go especially if you are petite. it optically lengthens your legs. low/mid-rise clothing can easily make your legs look short. it can look nice but you need to have a certain body type to pull it off imo.

anyone have recs on thigh high boots?
ive always wanted to get some but i dont want to shell out 120$ on a pair unless i know its highly rated. id prefer to go for much lower price since I think I just want to start off with plain black high heeled boots.
Some outfit inspo would also be highly appreciated as I want to make this my look in the fall. I always dress in gym clothes because I'm lazy and find it easier than bringing clothes with me all day before I hit the gym but I'd like to change that. I want to look like a proper lady, but have no idea where to put my cash.
Should I just do a fashion nova binge? (Sorry if this is all over the place fuck)

Can you guys give me some advice about putting outfits together and improving my shopping habits in general? I have a really hard time coordinating my clothes, but I'm also kind of addicted to thrift shopping.
I have a closet full of unique vintage pieces, but I seldom wear them. This is because I have a bad habit of snagging cheap but cool pieces without considering what I'm going to pair them with. In addition, there's a lot of different aesthetics and eras catching my eye that I want to tap into. But I feel like the styles I'm into have no consistency, therefore there's no solid "look" I'm going for… Lastly, I'm kinda lazy, and usually when I leave the house I just end up wearing really comfy, normcore tier shit.
The plus side is I'm not spending myself into ruins. I only go to thrift stores when I know I have enough to treat myself, and everything else I own is cheap department store stuff, a lot of it which I've owned for years. I just feel like a fucking mess with a diverse closet and nothing to do with it.
Any suggestions of what I should do? Even if that means ending thrifting altogether and selling my clothes? (also let me know if this post is more appropriate or the advice thread)
I would recommend choosing a cohesive color palette and getting solids that work with various vintage finds across eras. Pick colors that you like wearing, sell off the cool things you have that don’t fit your palette, and then use that money for staple pieces etc.
I wear a lot of vintage styles, and my wardrobe is primarily comprised of black, grey, wine, pink and white. Having a lot of neutrals makes it easier to start bringing in other colors when I want to, though, so I have some green and blue in my wardrobe too. I look like shit in yellow and orange so I don’t have any in my closet.

How to woman?
When I was a cringy teenager I'd mostly wear 'alternative' fashion styles like Goth or Lolita. I was alright with coordinating, but not exactly with choosing anything that actually suits me.
After I had a fitness phase and was okay with just walking around in sportsgear 24/7 I now realize that I have no idea how to dress myself and I feel like I am shooting myself in the foot. My boyfriend said he wants to be able to show me off like a Ferrari, but I don't know how to dress for my bodytype. I have very broad shoulders, ribcage and hips, small boobs, relatively long legs. My best feature is probably my ass+legs. I'd currently describe myself chubby muscular (off-season), but a few months out of the year I have a 4-pack.
What kind of style would suit me? What clothing items would suit my body? Other than that I am cookie cutter long blonde green eyed whitie, not a striking beauty so I can't get away with too far out there stuff.
File: 1532190323910.png (221.62 KB, 1080x1920, Screenshot_20180721-122340.png)
Unrelated, but I've tried out the body visualizer for the first time now, and it really pisses me off how you can't make a busty hot woman's body lol. When you increase the bust, the ribcage gets large, the tits sag, the face becomes witchy and something weird happens to the hips. Wtf
Also you can't build a super jacked man, no matter what, he'll always have skinny woman legs
This sounds like a really good game plan. I think one of my issues is indeed colors being all over the place. My most worn pieces are black, white, and blue, and I have some neutral tones as well. But many of my thrifted items are a weird mix of pastels and earth tones and various patterns haha…
Anyways, I'm about to do some deep cleaning before the summer ends, so I'll definitely go through my closet and sort out what I won't actually wear. And in the future when I shop I'll focus on getting practical pieces that match with a lot of things, like you suggested. Thanks again anon, you're a life saver!

I'm the exact same way anon, lately i have been buying a few pieces from shein. Theyre stuff is pretty trendy and not super expensive but I have no doubt its cheap chinese sweatshop teir.
I own some aliexpress thigh highs and they are godwaful to wear but i usually coord it with plain spandex and one of the tops i got from shein for an easy street to gym transition. All and all I would say light but formal tops have saved my wardrobe.
I used to order a lot of pieces from Romwe. Had no issues with delivery, and everything fit fine and was decent quality.
I stopped shopping there though cause the site got really weird, like they started selling men's and children's clothes (???) and all this random ass house crap. It's not even a women's fashion site anymore, it's another Ali site.

I normally wear a lot of pastels and a lot of pink (general weeb fashion), but because I'm short, it makes me look like I'm 12. I recently got this dress from Mango and it makes me look way more feminine and actually my age. Does someone have recommendations on where to get similar styled clothes? Cute, girly and pastel but with feminine cuts.
Keep your waist defined, tops that are boxy or sit badly on the chest (y’know the tube-boob look?) are unflattering.
Been seeing a lot of braids or loose hair styles which help counter a more masculine style outfit, and little accents like nails, jewelry.
I’ve seen a lot of cropped shirts and fitted black turtlenecks being worn with vintage denim
Use a belt, or switch up your shapes and wear a boxy top with bottoms that make your legs look ten miles long.
Boxy tops are cruel because they only suit long thin bodies. Short or thick figures get lost and look bulky

What do you guys think of this playsuit? Do you find it cute? Ugly? Does it look too much like labia?
The pleats on the front look pointless. They don’t add much aside from a flap at the crotch.
The hem line will make it impossible to sit or bend without showing your ass cheeks, and the crotch depth on playsuits ensures that it will also jam itself into your crotch when sitting or bending, unless it’s made of a stretchy fabric. (Which would be a whole other issue here because jersey would cling horribly and the scuba fabric everything trend is just ugly af)
The garment on the model doesn’t even fit nicely tbh. It’s bunching at the waist and ribs because the darts don’t fit her bust.

I'd take some cues from the 90s with the tight top, loose/baggy pants combo for a more figure flattering look.
What do you guys think of Kibbe's theory of body types? Aly Art has so much videos about this theory.
In my opinion it is very interesting and legit. I learned a lot and I'm more confident what fits me and my style. I am a soft gamine btw>>89382
For example this model is a flamboyant natural and she looks hideous in this pink childish dress which emphasizes her harsh features. But this dress would look good on gamines on the other hand
i don't see how it's a theory. is there something i'm missing? it just seems like a subjective way of recognizing patterns in different body types, same as the old fruit thing. it does seem more useful and less vague than the old way, but it's not like there's anything empirical that would make this "theory" "correct" and the old way "incorrect."
i always thought the fruit method was too vague. you can be an hourglass and 6' with a long torso and square violin hips or you can be an hourglass who's 5'2 with round hips and a short torso. you're telling me those people are going to look good and bad in the same things? so i like that this method takes lots of factors into account besides just your shoulder/waist/hip ratio.
i took her test and i'm a theatrical romantic and it checks out because the clothes and styling she recommended are the ones i've gravitated to over the years.
File: 1534717701361.jpg (80.78 KB, 1024x580, yin-yangscale_zps75e7ea63 (1).…)
It is indeed a theory. You can google it. It's by David Kibbe and the book is called Metamorphosis. It is about understanding forms, yin and yang.
gotcha. thanks for clearing it up! i shouldn't have been so cynical. i guess i'm a little tired of hearing shit like "the spoon theory."
i'm actually kind of excited about finding out about this. i could never tell how feminine or masculine i read and this clears it up very well.
It is ok. I mean you are somewhat right because it is not scientific paper which you can prove.
David Kibbe just made up his own "theory" of body types. For some it's a good orientation and others think it's bs. What I like about Kibbe is that it is so diverse that everybody can identify with a type

Yes! Unfortunately the most information you can find online is for women but you can find some interesting stuff for men too. I recommend reddit of you have some questions because they are really active and helpfulhttps://www.reddit.com/r/FeminineNotFeminist/?utm_source=amp&utm_medium=post_header

You can also look for outfit ideas in pinterest btw if you know your bfs type
ah ok that makes sense
i found these descriptionshttp://expressingyourtruth.net/style-men/
"Kibbe says he wrote the men's section in the book Color For Men (the edition of Color Me Beautiful for men). That only has the base types no subtypes, though. He considers himself a Theatrical Romantic and works with men as well as women."
so it's a shame i can't sperg out with subtypes and tests. from the descriptions i think he's right in between natural and romantic honestly.

getting a new pair of doc martens and i can't decide between these two: 1461 Bex (on the left) and the Adrian Smooth (on the right). i love the chunkiness of the 1461 Bex but i also love how the other ones look like loafers. in the winter i wear a lot of miniskirts with tights and i think both of these would be cute with those outfits. for versatility, which of these would look better with pants as well? which one would you guys choose?

if anyone finds hunting for clothes online fun, i really want a dress exactly like this in black. i know this actual dress is from trashy diva, but i'd like to find a cheaper version as i know i've seen similar dresses before. i'll post again if i find one.
This is strange because I've wanted the Adrian loafers forever but was just recently considering getting the 1461s, haha.
To me, loafers suggest more of a preppy style and the 1461s seem a lot edgier. If you wear more alt fashion I'd get the 1461s, but if you have more of a "classic" style then the Adrians are probably better.

Take it somewhere else. Anon asked for a coat, not your morals.
They’re just asking for a coat not freaking out over fur.
There’s vintage and inherited fur pieces out there, and fur is a nice extra to managing invasive rabbits in Australia. The market isn’t entirely black and white. Anon just wants a coat.
Imo the better choice is felt treated with scotch guard in a classic cut like a princess coat or a tailored trench coat. Lighter, less bulk, really warm. If it’s really freezing something lined with fleece with tighter fitting sleeves.
Faux fur is made of plastic, which is way more harmful for the environment (AND a ton of your pwecious animals)
second hand real fur >>>>>>>>> new real fur >>>>>>>>>> faux fur

My twenties are starting to creep out and
"Dressing my Age" really bothers me, not in a womanchild way but "Mature" clothes just look absurdly unflattering on me, blazers, office trousers, almost every dress that doesnt have a bit of a Poof, i just look like someone's kid trying their aunt's clothes, even with petite sizes it just looks
I personally enjoy the way i dress alot but i cant help but feel pressure to change as i grow older.
Theres no workplace dresscode or stuff like that since im a baker so its just about social situations
Im 5´1 and around 110 lbs, just overall very petite and girlish in body
Style is a bit like pic related, i always end up getting compared to cassie from skins style-wise
Her outfits were so bad and so deliberately quirky! and different! and ugly.
Love yourself anon. She was dressed like a kindergarteners art project.

i guess pic related would be a better example, i do own quite a few items from the same brand
That’s adorable, and so much better than Cassie. She’s a mish mash of random garments, the outfit you posted is much more mature and sane.
Quirky can be good, based bug anon was excellently quirky. It’s when it’s forced that it sucks.

Anyone else just brand hoes for certain brands? Which ones?
I fucking love Lazy Oaf. It's cute and delightfully tacky. Just bought pic related. Now I can dress up like it's Halloween erryday.
Lazy oaf occasionally has a cool piece but that jacket is shit. The bones aren’t even cute.
(I’m a massive wanker who still likes rick Owens and Margiela so my opinion is worth dick lol) If it makes you happy wear it until it’s falling apart.>>100687
A bug brooch means you have bedbugs and roaches in your purse and hair, apparently. Anons are mental.
I can’t deal with fast fashion crap any more. Bad sizing, bad craftsmanship, bad fabric, bad business practice, bad prices for what it is (fifty dollars for some polyester and six seams is a joke. Only an idiot would wear it)
But it’s so hard to escape unless you make all your own stuff down to knickers, or if you can afford insanely expensive things. It shouldn’t take a $600 dress to get a french or flat-fell seam and no garment over $100 should be zigzag stitched but here we are.

Understood, anon. I am just a magnet for bad tacky shit. I can't help it. I always get roasted eveytime I post about it on /fa/ lmao. I love Tricky Ricky as well. Wanted to cop a pair of memebaskets.
I also own this fluffy Lazy Oaf kitty sweateru~
I hate it so much but I hope you love it.
People are too antsy over what other people wear. If you like tacky shit, revel in it. It looks fun at least, which is better than another safe combo from Pinterest with a million identical outfits walking around the city.
I’ve got a treasure trove of tacky brooches and Bakelite bangles. Uglier than sin and so much fun. Best one is a big orange Bakelite parrot. Size of a fist and shiny.
At least it’s an interesting and personal style even if I dislike it. Boring is far worse than a fluffy jumper or silly prints.
Nothing really, more pointing out that I’m a basic bitch with really basic taste (at least by the standards of /fa/ they’d roast me as hard as anon gets roasted for lazy oaf)
There’s nothing wrong with liking any clothes.

Not to me! personally I really enjoy pairing lingerie-esque items with a pair of high waisted jeans or a skirt to make it more casual.
That shit is why I generally don't seek fashion advice from LC. Some anons are lovely, but others will act like you've insulted their mother if you post certain clothing items, most noticeably when it's stuff that looks best on skinny frames, like baggy clothing or most J-fashion.
I have a hunch that such anons are probably overweight, aged-looking or dumpy themselves, ie they flat-out can't pull off certain things and need to "dress for their age/body" at all times. They either seem to assume all of us must be the same way, and want to "help" by dissuading anons from wearing clothing that'd be unflattering on themselves, or they just get irritated whenever they're reminded that there are others who actually can pull off things they can't, so they go on attack mode.

Does anyone have any recommendations for dresses/skirts that would look nice and feminine without heels? I don’t want to damage my feet just for the sake of looking cute, and I also consider comfort to be the most important aspect of my clothing. So far I’ve found that tshirt or bodycon dresses work really with sneakers, but I would love to hear more suggestions for cuts that would look nice with non heeled shoes that aren’t necessarily flats as they can be difficult to walk long distances in.

My biggest problem with finding clothes is that I'm extremely picky when it comes to comfort:
>I always feel cold, but find nearly all pullovers to be too scratchy
>I have a very sensitive neck, to the point of feeling like I'm choking when something touches it lighty, so no turtle necks, scarves, etc - but on the other hand I also don't want to show cleavage
>everything remotely tight on my waist like skirts or skinny jeans triggers my ibs
>leggings or yoga pants always feel too tight and make my skin itch
>I probably own over 30 pair of shoes yet have only one that doesn't give me blisters
>can't even put my hair into a ponytail because even that gives me a headache
I wish I could just wear a loose tshirt, trackpants and my favourite sneakers all year long… What should I do? I buy things but then end up only wearing them only once because I can't stand the feel of them. If something is itchy or tight it literally ruins my while day.
Pic related would unironically be my ideal…

thank you anon! it’s one of my favorite clothing brands, glad to hear i’m not alone on this site.
if you don’t mind me asking, what’s your opinion on this piece? it’s one of the cutest ones imo but also one of the items i’m the most worried about being considered childish, regardless of styling.
again i suppose i could use it as loungewear if nothing else but $49 for something to just lazying around in at home seems a bit much…

as far as i can tell from this pic you have a large hip to waist difference so i made this collage to show why you should stay away from these corduroy/denim a-line skirts that are trending now, like the one that the other anon posted. you should stick to soft fabrics if you go for an a-line and buy more tailored skirts (like the pic on the right) if you want a harder fabric.
sorry if my english sucks but i hope this helps.
>>101309>not wanting to bring attention to hips
Why? That's an aesthetically pleasing trait on women.
wtf the fuck
I highly agree with this anon.
Personally I have a very similar body shape to you, and those denim a-line skirts look hideous on me as my hips stick out waaay too much.. it looks weird. I imagine there would have a similar result on you.
Soft fabric a-line skirts are the way to go like anon mentioned. If your height is shorter than average, midi length a-line skirts worn on the waist will make you look amazing.

I hope this is the right place to ask this, I'm saging it anyway. I've recently taken an interest in fashion, I'd say in "Haute Couture", but I know absolutely nothing about fashion, so I'm not even sure it's actually "haute couture" I'm into. It's just "not everyday fashion" I'm talking about (pic related is what I'm looking for). Could anyone recommend me where/how to go looking for more of this kind of, uh, pictures ? I draw for a living so they make great inspiration.
heyyy that's a really nice pic! thanks for your time anon, ill definitely try it out (also your english doesn't suck!)>>101434>>101483
it's cool if you like your hips anon lol like >>101437
said, i just dont like mine, no hate to big hips in general>>101474
im 5"10'ish, so lets hope they work for tall people too haha but yea denim skirts only work for me if they're super stretchy, and i usually end up covering them with a long shirt anyway

archivings on tumblr aka http://archivings.net/
is prime for this, the guy behind it has scanned fashion magazines/photobooks from the 70s onward for years. the 80s was a great time for this look specifically. his "scan rejects" and miscellaneous blog is good too, and a lot of the stuff he posts fall in line with it. you'll get to know designers/their work as you go through. designers you will probably want to look at, outside of pic related for this stuff, include Thierry Mugler, early YSL (look up "le smoking"), early Dior, Jil Sander, and Gaultier. maybe some Comme Des Garcons and Yohji Yamamoto.
rarebooksparis on instagram puts up a bunch of fantastic old photo book scans as well.
also spend some time browsing thefashionspot forums. i wish there were more spaces for women to talk about high/non-fast fashion and avant-garde designer stuff, tbh.
attached pic is from a 1986 mugler show.

Can any anons please tell me where I could maybe find a dupe of this reformation dress? why does nobody make this style its perfect… and my wallet will not let me get the real thing
with the risk of sounding like a spoiled giga bitch, when i browsed their website i couldn’t find this specific one but others similar to it were around $218. for a high quality dress that should last you a really long time and that you really really want, that’s not insanely expensive. if you restrict yourself and don’t buy a shit ton of forever 21 items that will be distressed beyond repair within a year it shouldn’t leave too big of a hole in your wallet.
i don’t know how small your budget is or how much you usually spend on clothes, but the real deal is always better than the knockoffs and it’s usually a better investment in the long run to own a few items of high quality than to spend money over and over again on less expensive ones that won’t last nearly as long.
reformation isn't worth the price
source: I have a bunch of shit from there with holes
I would start by googling "shirred mini dress" or "square neck mini dress" to see if anything comes up. you could also search on poshmark/depop to see if anyone is reselling. topshop or asos might have similar dresses too
Thank you both!
I see where you're coming from first anon… but reformation stuff isn't actually that good quality LOL. They say they're sustainable and charge a huge bunch but at the end of the day the fabric is still coming in cheap from china.
I will search what you've suggested anon #2 :)
Sorry for responding 8 days late anon, I like it for the most part. I'm not too big on animal graphics on shirts but if you wear it similar to what that girl has I think it's fine. Have some matching pink/purple hair pieces.
Honestly, at the end of the anon-chan wear shit that makes you happy. For 49 buck bitch u wear that shit out of that sweater outside

alright help, how to dress when you have absolutely no hips? Pic related is me, for reference I'm 5'6" so not short.
My boobs aren't exactly small either, so with my lack of hips or ass I feel like it makes me look really unbalanced.
I’m 5’6” and “top-heavy” too.
What are your measurements/weight, if you don’t mind?
When I put my stats into this thing, I feel like it’s not how I look at all. But I can’t tell if it’s just denial/BDD or I’m really just a board with tits.
Anyway… my go-to is a loose-fitting blouse or sweater with fitted pants or skirt. It’s a bit imbalanced, but at least my bobbies aren’t front and center, but I don’t look frumpy either.
Glad to hear you share my struggles anon, my measurements are B:35 W:24 H:31 and I weigh 110, the pic is pretty accurate to me I think.
I've definitely been wearing the loose sweater fitted pants look for awhile, but it's not exactly the most exciting look… I feel like wider pants (to give the illusion of hips) and a tighter shirt might even us out better? I just have so much trouble finding pants that fit since my hips/waist are so small, I haven't been able to try it out yet.
Holy shit wow
Have you found smth similar u like? asking for a fren
I have the same stats(except my chest is 2 inches smaller, but it used to be bigger)
Would absolutely recommend wider pants either highwaisted that flare out at the hips or if you want to go lower, then pair them with a big belt. Also a line skirts are a good choice. I feel like dark tight tops with lighter wide pants or skirt is a very good combo for this body type.

Could any of you anons give me some advice on more tomboy-ish fashion? Recently I've been more inspired to cultivate my personal style (aka dress how I really want), but I have trouble doing so because the only 'fashion' influences I can think of are male. I really like somewhat edgy, but casual alternative styles like how Kurt Cobain or teenagers in 90s alternative/metal scenes dressed, but I don't know how well those styles would translate on a female frame, especially because I'm on the taller side. I know most anons on this board tend to like more feminine styles, but I'm wondering if anyone has experience in translating male fashion inspiration into something a girl could wear without looking frumpy. Or am I just doomed and should start trying to find more feminine fashion inspo instead?
Why is it so hard to just go out, buy the clothes you like, and if something doesn't specifically work you can change it and then maybe ask for opinions with specific problems?
It just seems kind of contradictory and pathetic that you say you want to dress how you like in an incredible casual style, using a picture of the literal human embodiment of "I do what I want, whatever people think", but you need strangers on the internet to order you about and give you formal rules
If you're scared of being frumpy then just do what you do in any type of fashion and just be mindful of the things that make you frumpy aka if you need a defined waist then only buy fitted girls tops

Try boyfriend fit jeans, anon. They're a more loose, casual look but not frumpy.https://www.currentelliott.com/what-are-boyfriend-jeans>Borrowed from the boys, the boyfriend jean cut involves a slouchy, relaxed fit, as if they were actually his but tailored for her. By understanding the history of the boyfriend jean, women can learn the evolution of this cut and how these jeans should be worn for a menswear-inspired, yet feminine look.

Im not happy with the image people have from me with my clothes.
Don't get me wrong, I absolutely love my wardrobe, it took me a long time to curate it (also because poor), its pretty much Spring Vintage with 00s and 90s influences.
I have problem that its completely dissonant from my interests, Metal, horror movies, weird shit. I find it hard to make friends because people are judgemental, don't even say they are, life is just like that you know.
Should i ditch my yellows and pinks to try to fit in? Try to go uwu sadbbygurl nicole dollanganger? Screw everyone but accept my hard time fitting in with my "crowd"
Ikr, but I like the feminine look and the "metaller" look, it just depends on the day. I don't know if you would be confortable, but you don't have to commit totally to one style or use just one style in an outfit.
But anyway, if you like just the music and don't feel the need to dress metaller, you shouldn't do it just to blend in, find people that are not judgemental about your clothes instead.
Looks like the goffs fights over liking only the music and not dressing goth or liking dressing goth but not listening.

I am also like you but I think it's really cool when someone dresses unlike you would expect them to based on their interests.
If you want to be more edgy you can check out Larme fashion, sometimes it's all about pretty pastel dresses but sometimes it's more dark like this.
File: 1546798592320.jpg (68.67 KB, 513x513, 20190106_101557.jpg)
Anon I love these looks. I don't know anything about Japanese (?) fashion. Is there a certain subculture of Larme that is dark like that? How do I search it to find more? Pic related calls it "urban goth larme", is that legit? Tytyty!
File: 1546807687870.jpg (152.89 KB, 920x1380, 7a60a809052835f8bd9282d711bd0a…)
Sorry if not quite on topic, but can anyone ITT make their own clothes? How did you get started? I really hate the clothes I find in stores today, and I don't have the money to have them made or buy couture.
Anon I feel you.. I go to a lot of punk/psychobilly gigs and my friends dress to that genre. I just stand out so much and always look like I don't belong there.
This might be the reason I'm always insecure of how I dress. I'd like to be more interesting looking but I love the minimalistic look also. Sigh.
It isn't really a subpart of larme that is like that, it's just a section in the magazine that had looks like that and it was titled Urban Goth, but western bloggers tend to put labels on everything. Lots of people like to break down Larme fashion into styles like "pheromone fetish", "classic French" and whatnot but it's not really classified at all in the magazine. These edgy looks aren't very common in the magazine, it was just this one section. However larme looks often have edgy elements like leather skirts, chokers, lingerie like clothes etc. so it's kind of a mix of sugar and poison. Lol sorry that was kinda spergy wasn't it?
Here is a blog post with scans from the issue which had that urban goth section. This blog has a lot more scans of other issues as well. https://emiiichan.blogspot.com/2016/09/larme-024-rhapsody-of-night-and-fog.html
Yep. It’s way better. A basic sewing machine can be had for under $100. Patterns are free online and cheap in thrift stores, fabric can be picked up cheap.
I like sundresses, and make mine from vintage fabrics from the thrift store.
Everything fits better, no more fake pockets, no more jacked-up prices for shit seams, higher quality garments (better jersey for your shirts, proper seams even for basic garments, never have to go back to shitty clothing stores like f21 or whatever crap)
I didn’t get lessons, just dicked around for a year until I got the hang of it. There’s heaps of YouTube tutorials out there to help. I like MellySews for patterns and written tutorials.

I love trenchcoats but look like a burrito whenever I try to use one.

I'm 26 and work a government related office job with a business casual dress code that leans more towards casual than business. I really, deeply love twee fashion but I know it's not really looked upon favorably in fashion communities. Is there anyway to make it look more age appropriate?
Had the same problem, just switched to a darker palette and smaller prints.
More dark green and burgundy, no more cutesy prints like bunnies or deer. Classic styled jewelry, plain leather bag.
I have thick legs too.
What I do is wear lots of flared skirts or dresses with thick thights/leggings under it. (normally you won't lose that much heath from your legs but you can wear thermal leggings for those really cold days)
Make sure your coat goes no longer than your hips or get a coat that's a bit flared to the bottom and has a defined waist.
Thanks, anon. Will definetly look into these pieces.
I think a huge mistake I used to make in winter is using jeans or pants that make your legs even thicker instead of going for thighs that usually slim our figures

Do any farmers know of any good reputable websites or brands that sell proper leather chokers? Preferably similar to pic attached. I like the aesthetics of it, but if it breaks after a pull or two I'm not down. I took a look at CreepyYeha but I'm not super keen on them. Also the site has to ship to AU.

Nude or nothing.
Black or white would look weird, socks would look too schoolgirlish.

Sadly my wedding is in two weeks so I was hoping for something that would arrive faster.
I've gotten stuff from uh Shein before that was cute but kinda also fell apart so fast.

I’m irritated because I live in Paris now and the fashion here is starting to influence my own fashion choices and overall style. I came basically dressed like a casual goth or alt girl with bright green hair and now I have jet black hair and dress like a casual chic clone that wears various shades of black and grey. I use to hate the oversized coats and scarf combos I’d see constantly, but seeing it so often now I want to incorporate it into my wardrobe. The true irritation I think lies within myself, that I dress as a reflection of what’s around me/the groups I’m in instead of just for myself, and my idea of fashion was always to use it as an expression of who I am as a person to reflect that to the world around me. Anyone else struggle with their fashion identity, or maybe you don’t have this issue, and what do you think influenced you personally/culturally to feel this way?

Where the hell can I find more casual, simple dresses in the cut like pic related? I mean, every site I go to is littered with some goofy ass bottom hem, asymmetrical something, or has weird, unflattering sleeves. It's even hard to find a simple kimono sleeve that doesn't look completely ugly or has any of the above listed added to it. I need some site/shop recommendations. I'm in dire need of dresses for the upcoming spring and summer.
To make things harder, petites ONLY please!

Maybe incorporate the new silhouettes and ideas in with your beloved gothy/alt details? For example, casual chic coat but with gothy accents/edgy buttons/a cool edgy brooch? I haye using the word edgy but you know what I mean!
Pic related: I've never been to France so these styles may be way off but I hope you get what I mean!

I appreciate the enthusiasm! It’s interesting trying to find myself (fashion wise) in a foreign country, but these give me a lot of inspiration and ideas to incorporate into my wardrobe. I’ve always been a creepy/girly type of girl, so this might be something to delve into. It’s honestly kinda nice to shop in France, the clothing quality is heaps better than what I’m use to in burger land.
I'm so glad you liked them and got some inspo. So did I whist making them tbh so ty for that fellow creep-girl!>the clothing quality is heaps better than what I’m use to in burger land.
Ugh so jealous. I walked into Kohl's to make an Amazon return and I was actually pissed at how absolutely shitty eveything was. Not that Kohl's is the bastion of quality but it's so gross. Anything decent costs hundreds and even then it might be cheap bullshit. I feel like more and more is taken away quality-wise every year from products and fashion in general and it makes me so mad.
My main criteria is above anything, you can never go wrong with a lbd. Depending on the type of occasion you can get something sleeveless, high collar, lower cut, short length, past the knees, it’s personal preference really. If it’s a truly elegant dinner I’d suggest nothing above the knee, it might be better to go floor length to be on the safe side but if you have nice legs calf length (mid length/midi online) can look okay. I’d suggest something with a higher neckline depending on the dress, lower cut v’s can turn into casual very quickly. Strappy heels with manicured toes are always trendy, but you can always do a closed pump if you don’t feel like showing off your feet. But you should MOST DEFINITELY wear heels. Minimal jewelry, try to keep any necklaces, bracelets, rings etc on the dainty delicate side, preferably one of each if you feel you must have some sort of jewelry on. Earrings should match the aesthetic your other jewelry is given, ala if your ring is emerald use small emerald earrings, if you wear pearls
I would avoid largely synthetic fabrics (polyester, acrylic etc) with the exception of viscose if you're not sure about a brand/store's quality as they're usually poorer in appearance. They are ok in smaller percentages:
80% 30% acrylic.
However, they're not always shit but it's depends on the production of the fibres (usually more expensive for synthetic fibres not to be shitty) - natural fibres tend to be of a better quality regardless of price-point. I trust cotton, wool, linen even in random sites they're going to look better. Most things will be cotton though.
It's pretty difficult to sus production quality without having the item irl but for me the most important is the fabric.
You might want to observe:
- thickness and opacity (thin cotton fabric is not great either)
- observe in the modelling pictures by zooming if the seams and stitching is neat and straight (crappier mass produced items is sometimes obviously sloppy here)
Also for mid-tier-ish brand for some Scream Queens-esque clothes Valfre quality from what I've gotten has been good.

Is there a way to avoid looking "frumpy" in modest clothing when your face is ugly?
I dress like pic related with some variance (basic idea is always a long sleeve tucked into a long skirt though), but I'm not nearly as cute or willowy. Thing is I feel even worse in things that are popular where I live now, like athleisure and "art hoe" 80's shit (I'm basically diet amerifag btw, Canadian).
Should I just suck it up and accept that I'll always look dweeby no matter what? Or is there some way I can make the outfits look a bit more elegant?

Love your outfit. The vest says "Let's have lunch" but the culottes say "You're paying".
For real though, what type of environment would you wear this in? What's your everyday style like? Would you want to dress it up classically, or down in a modern/trendy style? Let's try to style it! It really is a nice suit. What's the brand? How much did you snag it for? What's the fabric content?
I was planning to wear it for a school event where everyone is in formal/business clothing. Most of the girls at my school dress really cute, so I wanted to try for once. My everyday style is very boring with mostly dark colors. I try to blend in as much as possible. But I wanted to make a change recently and wear brighter colors.
I wouldn't mind more of a modern style for it. I don't want to look super formal.
The brand is Ann Taylor, cotton material, and I got it for $10. I would like to wear it, I just haven't allowed myself to wear noticeable/flashy colors, so I have no idea what to add onto it and how to avoid looking tacky.
Imo go for neutrals or white.
The suit itself is bold and doesn’t need much.

Will it be cold? Can you pull off a white turtleneck under the jacket if so? A modern cut, not a mom-from-Wisconsin one if you know what I mean. Heels or white/cream/etc. loafers would be cute too!>>106324>neutrals or white
Pic related- examples of cute loafers and bottom right is example of cute turtleneck with suit. Of course it doesn't need to be cropped if it would be inappropriate. I tried to find the right color combo of pink + neutral but it was hard.
