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?

I guess it depends how tall you are and what kind of general style you go for, such as fabrics/shapes/colours. I find it really hard to dress with tattoos too because it's either too basic as fuck, or if you wear lots of patterns/detail, you end up looking like a dog's dinner. I feel your pain girl.

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.

Any other anons know the feel of being fashion conscious in a small town? I wouldn't even say I'm particularly stylish or innovative at all, but I feel like everyone here has a uniform and I stick out like a sore thumb if I deviate from it.

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.

I’m hoping for some advice as well. I’m a neat hourglass with naturally muscular / kinda broad shoulders. The main issue I have is finding tops that flatter both my waist and shoulders. If it fits my shoulders, my waist is swimming in fabric and if it fits my waist I look like a sexy linebacker. Any tips, ladies? I feel like I may have to get a few high quality pieces to get tailored but I’m saving that as a last resort.

Not being fat as fuck would probably help a lot…a wrap dress that skins the slimmest part of your calves would be the most flattering thing. No spaghetti straps or skinny jeans, fluttery sleeves or a dolman sleeve soften and feminise big shoulders, avoid anything with any kind of puff or volume, linens, silks, and light woollens should drape nicely, avoid tight, shiny, stretchy fabrics at all costs. A line skirts or a small peplum should help balance your shape. Tunics and shift dresses are no good but anything that creates a wasps waist might be good.

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.

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

My body is fairly similar to this, different in some ways but I also have comparatively thick upper arms/hips compared to most women so I'm always having to work around that in outfits. When I'm not wearing A-line dresses then I'm wearing A-line skirts pretty much always. If you go for ones with stretchy material or a stretchy waistband then they're comfier than having to actually wear pants anyway

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.

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.

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.

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.

>>88339
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.

Usually, over here, you won’t see much of a clothing difference between these age brackets, except teens would be more prone to wearing sweatshirts and sweatpants or have a combo of plain T-shirt and jeans combined with expensive sport shoes (as brand name, pricey footwear can be often worn as status symbol).

Petite anons, where the fuck do you buy clothes? I can never find anything for my waist and shortness. I look better in shorter, high waist skirts but so many basically go down to almost my knees. When anything is too long it makes my legs look even shorter and frumpy. I'm 25 and have no choice but to shop at teenybopper mall stores if I'm not shopping online, and a lot of time I'm lucky if even they fit correctly. I got a couple skirts from yesstyle and they actually fit, but shipping takes so long from them, though I guess I have no other choice. I just wish I had more options for cute petite clothes. I guess Asian sizing works? Are there more options for that besides yesstyle?

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.

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)

No. 89180

>>89176
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.

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

I know, but at least it gives an idea of the measurements I am working with. In reality I have very broad shoulders and no violin hips, but the program is indeed very limited and doesn't work well for jacked people. Upping the exercise slider doesn't make the puppet more buff, just more defined.

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!

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.

No. 92601

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.

So I'm going away soon and I wanted some advice.

I'm thinking of getting a denim jacket (wearing it open) to try to hide my stomach with layers. With that a pair of black shorts and some colourful, patterned tops for a little colour that I'll half tuck into my shorts. I could also wear a floral dress with the jacket. I'm looking for a pair of good shoes because I'll be doing a lot of walking but something that looks nice like a pair of white canvas shoes and a pair of heeled sandals for the dress. I have a few mini backpacks but I don't think they'll match what I'm planning. I have 2 pairs of denim shorts already but I'm not sure what to wear with them (maybe a light, long sleeve shirt but that might highlight my weight). I'm trying to pack as light as possible but also give myself a good few options, like a little capsule wardrobe.

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.

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
Costume-y
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

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.

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.

No. 101150

I find that the higher the skirt, the better it will look with flat shoes. Skirts that end somewhere above the knee are usually the best, and you can pair them with pantyhose if you don't feel like shaving your legs that day.

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…

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.

No. 101883

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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’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?

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.

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!

Agreed.

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.

This color combo of pink + black + brown shoe is nice too!

Is it possible to wear a beret and not look like a tool? Either I wear it wrong and look frumpy, or I manage to make it sit right (off to the side) and look pretentious and asymmetrical in a way that doesn't seem as intentional as I'd prefer. I wonder if it's the beret itself, it was only cheap so maybe it's ill fitting or something.
