one-pieces (dresses, jumpsuits) are super low effort, throw on a pair of shoes, a bag, maybe some jewelry if you feel like it and bam, a nice outfit. Or you could go super basic with a nice pair of fitting jeans and a white t-shirt or blouse. Throw on some sneakers, maybe a leather jacket and you're done: Requires no thought or effort but it's still an outfit that looks good on everyone. Just make sure you pick pieces that fit you really well.

The 90s plaid A- skirt / overall combo with a shirt underneath it is the look I’m going for, but my friend said it’s not trendy anymore. Too bad cuz the cut and pattern looks good on me and I just bought 6 variations and colours of this look for $360. No refunds available. How would I make this look more trendy and up to date? I was thinking frilly blouses instead of a plain shirt and thigh highs instead of my typical combat boots

I feel like what makes kfashion is more about the hair, makeup, and being petite.

No. 125881

Most people don't care or notice much what you're wearing unless it's really out there. Expand your horizons, start small and try out what you like.

I got a rude comment once when I wore fishnets which saddens me a bit because I really like the look of them. I still wear them sometimes though cause fuck it.

No. 125889

First, let your anxiety build to the point where you feel like you're always being stared at.
Then, start wearing whatever you want. When you get that feeling that people are staring at you, you'll think "Must be my clothes", and the fact that you deliberately went out like that (instead of just existing as a spectacle) will make the whole thing feel impersonal and inconsequential.
I used to do this when I was overweight in a desperate bid to distract both myself and others from my body, and the habit just stuck even after I lost weight. It's rather liberating now (and of course people give you more leeway if you're not a landwhale). I can wear anything I think is nice, no matter how stupid it might look to others.

No. 125891

How do I dress for my figure?

I'm an underweight stick figure with no curves, people used to make fun of me for not having a boobs or ass at all and sadly at 23 I'm still flat everywhere. I also have a weird curved back which makes my tummy look fat. I also have weird bony x legs, the type of x legs that normally happens when you're overweight, and my knee caps are sticking out a lot. I hate my face as well but this is about fashion so I'll leave those details behind, so there's nothing I really want to draw attention to, every part of my body looks strange.

No. 127346

I mean skinny people are kinda in luck as a lot of things fit. Not without reason skinny people model clothing. I wouldn't worry too much about the general standards of dressing for your frame. You've pointed out a lot of negatives and honestly I think you're downplaying your own body. Try to accentuate what you like.

If you want some general ideas I'd say skater cut dresses give a nice illusion of curves. Avoiding anything too tight or too baggy. Lots of layering. Avoid all-black as that will slim you down. Patterns, prints or bright colors are a good way to go.

I'm tall and skinny as fuck myself. Personally I usually opt for leggings/pantyhose with skirts or shorts with more oversized/loose tops to balance it out. I dislike my scrawny upper body way more than my legs, but that's just me. If you go for baggier pants etc. one day formfitting tops will often balance it out. That's my motto anyway. It's good to switch up and just say fuck it and not follow rules though.

Honestly the fastest way to look feminine + stay comfy is simple dresses since it's just one garment that you don't need to pull up or fix too often. Flowy shirt dresses like pic related (colour and pattern irrelevant) are great imo. Otherwise, any skirt that isn't a pencil skirt is pretty comfortable.
I also really recommend dress pants/slacks! The tapered ones are pretty flattering, but holy shit. Way more comfortable than jeans and it makes it look like you put effort into your appearance.

Don't have any hair advice though, I just braid mine and use my ethnicity as an excuse hehe.

No. 127637

Speaking of ageplay vibes, I feel like my style might be inappropriate for my age (20). I'm really into sanrio stuff and hime gyaru/pink frilly clothes in general. But I feel like most of the other people who dress this way (in the west) are doing it for fetish reasons nowadays.

If this is your own label, imo most of your pieces are really nice but this looks like a sissy costume. Also it might help your brand to see things modeled on a bigger variety of people.

20 is so young so wear whatever makes you happy while you can, most of ye efamous jfashion wearers are at least in their mid twenties anyway. It's easy to distinguish the cute instagram fashion bloggers from the abdl kink accounts but you have to accept that to normies we all look alike

No. 127646

weebs feel better than others so they will claim it's ~not ageplay~ looking compared to a random 14 year old e-girl who loves wearing pink satin clothes. In reality if you don't glamorize the book lolita or japan's kiddie fetish I don't think it's a problem to dress children inspi wear.

For the upcoming new year I'd really like to turn my entire style around, sort of from mousey plain jane to a "stacy" lol
Problem is, I don't really want to dress too sexy e.g. I absolutely don't want to show cleavage, that just makes me feel uncomfortable (a bit of leg is fine tho). Secondly, most of the popular girls on yt or insta are very tan and have a sort of beachy look, while I'm a really pale brunette (and I don't live in a warm place).
Does anybody know any sort of style inspiration that would fit this description? I really have no idea where to start, I neither really know what's "in", nor do I know what suits me. If it helps, I'm very tall and more of a pear shape, tho my butt is a bit on the small/flat side. I'd really appreciate any help.

Instead of trashy instagram style why not go for a more classic elegant style?

No. 128838

Use Pinterest for inspiration. I wouldn't worry too much about trying to fit in with trends, go for whatever you feel fits your body and personal tastes.
You might want to look at basic minimalist/Scandi chic type of fashion. Simple, clean, not very revealing unless you want it to be, and would probably flatter your body type.

No. 128843

I never said I want to look trashy, I just have absolutely no idea what exactly I'm looking for, that's why I tried looking at instagram and co.
I mainly dressed more elegant/business chic when I was a bit younger, but while I find that style beautiful on other women, it just doesn't suit me, it makes me look boring and old af, like some bland mom. In general I look awful in anything beige or nude coloured, I need a bit more to not look "invisible" to others.

No. 128855

Go on pinterest and keep a board of outfit pictures you like. Pin anything you like that you come across on Pinterest, instagram (there's plenty more styles on there than just "trashy baddie") and other social media. Search for keywords such as fashion/outfits/fashion inspiration and filter on boards if you don't know where to start. If you find one picture you like, it'll automatically recommend similiar things.

No. 128858

I have a similar problem and am desperate.

I have a massive case of Millie Bobby Brown syndrome, where I look like someone's chain-smoking, divorced Greek aunt if you put me in anything overtly feminine and slap thick eyebrows on me. I look normal in slightly tomboyish, Parisian-style outfits and short hair, but I want to feel more feminine and don't know how. I don't suit "sexy" and I don't suit anything overtly twee/cutesy, but more serious clothes like business casual and monochrome outfits make me look like reviewbrah. Right now guys just assume I'm gay. I'm running out of choices.

Oh I just bought so much cheap chain necklaces and earrings from aliexpress. I got pentagram earrings and fishnets from dollskill too because they looked like fire on the model. I hope I don’t come off as costume-y when I combine it with all black outfits.

Maybe I’ll give these accessories to my little sister for Xmas if I end up looking like an edgelord.

Has anyone ever ordered from YesStyle? Are they similar to Romwe, Shein, Wish, etc., in that their products look drastically different in person? Are they extremely low-quality?

No. 128868

I've ordered a few tops and dresses from them before and have mostly had no problem. They do run small because it's asian sizing, so if you're larger it might not fit you. Also over all i probably wouldn't recommend getting any skirts/pants on there and to always read the reviews. If something doesn't have any reviews, don't gamble, it's probably bad.

No. 129010

Generally speaking fast fashion will be dirt cheap and have no real standing on ethically sourcing materials. They turn out new designs, new fashion trends, and bulks of clothes in a week. Most fast fashion companies have a huge catalogue of clothes and are often quick to retire old ones. That being said even other higher end brand might not ethical and even participate in fast fashion practice. It's just how fashion companies make money.

For Ted Baker in particular, it's a high end brand where pieces start off at 100, and according to their website they source all their material ethically. Their catalog is huge but I'm not sure how often they output new designs and discard old ones. Overall you wouldn't call this store a fast fashion brand. It's just too expensive.

So really just look at article of clothes, see how well it's made, see how quickly they adopt new trends, and then finally look at the price of clothing and if it matches to the quality

Are there rules as far as fashion goes, or is it generally subjective? So many of you speak in-depth about color theory, pattern-matching, which clothes best suit certain body types, etc.

I personally am clueless about all of the above. Luckily, I always receive compliments on my outfits; however, I feel like a fraud and worry that I might look ridiculous to those who are actually knowledgeable about fashion. How does one learn? I’d like to familiarize myself with the names of various types of garments/collars/sleeves, as well.

I often witness “fashion experts” completely contradicting each other when critiquing outfits and giving advice, which just leaves me feeling even more confused.

No. 129303

I swear no one here is a """fashion experts""" here. I think most of us here have an interest or affinity for fashion and have things to say on it based on exploring the interest.

In my opinion, I would say there's a certain set of "rules" a majority of people would agree with, however fashion IS subjective therefore even "fashion experts" are going to have different opinions and outlooks on fashion. (I think the rivalry of Dior and Chanel back when they where alive is a fantastic example of two "fashion experts" with completely different outlooks on what a woman should wear). Therefore don't worry about looking ridiculous to those who are knowledgeable about fashion. (What even is being knowledgeable about fashion anyway if we agree it is subjective?)

No. 129307

Maybe a stupid opinion but unless you coordinate your own originals or design your own clothes there's not much to learn about fashion is it? Like everything is pre-adviced for you and all you gotta do is literally look at pictures.

No. 129309

You can look at a picture and replicate it, but if you don't understand what makes it good (or bad) can you really replicate/imitate it correctly? You probably don't have the exact same clothes as the picture.

Also I wouldn't want to have to reference a picture everytime I stand in front of my warderobe.

Although I don't think there's a lot of actual learning involved with daily casual clothing, it's mostly just common sense and average eye judgement that certain things don't work or don't look good.

For dressing decently, I think you just need a basic eye for aesthetics. Doesn't even have to be fashion specific imo, art and graphic design skills (like balance and colour coordination) seem really transferable to me . But I'm sure more knowledgeable people are next level. Like, someone with a lot of technical knowledge about sewing and fabric will be able to choose higher quality clothes, someone who is very familiar with designers and fashion history will have more cohesive looks if they're going for a certain style or era, someone who spends a lot of time looking for inspiration will have broader tastes and be more willing to try new things, etc.

I think the style is just UK 80s casual womenswear tbh. Though Diana seemed to like pairing tailored pieces (like the green jacket and the riding style boots) with things like jeans and oversized sweaters. She mostly wore oversized clothing to hide her eating disorder, sadly, but she wore it well. You might want to look into some british 60s styles too, as that is kinda similar to the picture of her in the cardigan/blouse. I can't recommend any brands, but I'd maybe look into vintage clothing stores IRL or online and see if you can find some matching pieces similar to what Di is wearing.

What are peoples opinions on a pastel wardrobe? I've noticed that the vast majority of my clothing is pastels, or light pinks / creams. The style of the clothing pieces themselves tend to be pretty basic, nothing quite detailed with frills or lace, but I'm starting to realise these colours are seen as childish? I work in a company that allows for casual dressing so I'll wear white/light wash jeans and a pastel top/shoes and jacket almost daily. I guess I'm wondering if this comes off as overly girly? And then part of me thinks, well fuck it there's nothing wrong with girly fashion. But I don't necessarily want to give off a young vibe at work in case I'm not taken as seriously. The other girls in the office tend to wear work dresses or dark jeans and a shirt/blouse…but that's not my style at all.

So yeah, opinions on pastels in general?

I’m currently taking the Kibbe test. Some of these questions are ridiculously difficult; I have no clue if my shoulders are “narrow,” “sloped,” “symmetrical,” or “tapered.” How the heck does one determine such a thing? They just look like regular shoulders to me.

On a similar note, how did you guys figure out which “shape” your body is? I am 5’8 and thin with petite shoulders, small boobs, and pretty wide hips. My midsection curves in a bit (not “boxy” or rectangular). If I gain any weight, it generally goes to my thighs (though they are by no means “thick”). Any clue what shape this would make me, or should I break out the measuring tape?

I have a pair of vintage docs that were already broken in, and I still got blisters from them during the first while of wearing them since they had to adjust to my feet. So yeah, you're prob gonna be in for some pain. There's a lot of advice online for the best/easiest ways to break them in.

As for styling, I really like using them in edgier outfits, and to also make cuter, more feminine or pastel outfits a little more edgy too. I like the contrast between the styles. They add a lot of weight to your feet visually, which I feel helps balance out a lot of fits too. I feel like they're pretty versatile and can go with almost anything tbh. Are there any outfits you're thinking about that you're unsure of?

If you're afraid of looking childish you could try matching pastels with black. Like a leather jacket and combat boots. Or just get some more business casual pieces but in pastel colours. Like a pastel blue blazer, for example. Is your problem really pastels, or is it that you're not dressing in work-appropriate clothing? Even if casual is allowed it's not always best to actually dress super casual if that's not the vibe the rest of the office has.

Top kek anon, this is how I feel with lot of fashion advice questions "How do I wear -insert generic versatile item that goes with basically anything-" like how do you even answer that

I think generally measurements are used to figure out body shape. From your description you sound pear shaped, but I know there has to be a certain amount of inches in difference between your chest and hip measurement to be "true" pear shaped. I don't bother with kibbe, I think going by apple, pear, or triangle shape you can get a general idea of what looks good and then go from there. Like, I'm kinda pear shaped, so I know a-line looks good. But I also have broader shoulders so strapless tops don't look good on me. You just have to keep narrowing it down and you slowly figure out what does and doesn't work for you. It's a process, and the main thing is to find pieces that you actually like and enjoy wearing, and that you feel comfortable in. Don't fall for the trap of what you feel you should be wearing. (unless ofc it's for work clothing lol)

I have a size 0-2 waist and size 6-8 hips and cannot find proper fitting jeans for the life of me. I hate the look of skinny jeans and want the more “baggy” look but nothing is working out. Should I just deal with custom tailoring and suck it up? The waist area always scrunches up or I can’t get my butt to get into it.

No. 130561

Same, anon.
I love androgynous cuts and styling, but I have all the wrong body parts for it - narrow shoulders but wide (for my frame) hips, bigger bust, incredibly short legs. Everything that flatters me is ultra feminine, which isn't really my style.
I'm always struggling to find a middle ground between the styles I like and not making me look like a box on stumps.
Are you sure you're a size 0-2 (24-25") in the waist? Make sure you're measuring properly and not sucking in or pulling in the tape measure.
Having a couple of sizes difference between waist/hips sizes isn't unusual, but that big a difference would look quite odd, and to be frank, most people online seem to exaggerate their measurements a lot.
Either way, you want jeans with a lot of stretch so they can get over your hips - unfortunately, those are often skinny jeans, or jeggings, but a LOT of stores do "curvy" cuts nowadays - it was a much bigger problem say, 5 years ago - have you tried those? Do they fit?
If you're really a 0-2, it might be difficult as in my experience US brands, (except ones aimed at teens) are often badly vanity sized and a "0" is more like a 4.
I have a US 0 that fits like a UK size 10 (28" waist).

I'd say her style is a mix between prarie (long dresses, broderie, straw bags) and dark academia/school girl (plaid, hair bows, a-line skirts, berets) and maybe some more.

Anyway I think her style is fairly easy to pick apart in terms of items, you don't really need to know what to call the style (if it can even be called anything, it looks like a mixed bag to me) to know what to look for:

maxi dresses
pinafore dresses
a-line skirts
broderie dresses/blouses
prarie dresses

leather belts
hair hows
cutish animal jewelry
straw bags and hats

block heels
ballet flats
mary-jane shoes

patterns: plaid, tartan, gingham, houndstooth, (dark) florals, cute-ish animal patters

i have no idea if this style even has a name honestly, but going through instagram tags a common tag seems to be "フレンチガーリー" which translates to 'french girly', but googling that in english doesn't bring up similar results.

Thank you! I get inspiration from certain channels like Karolina Zebrowska, Bernadette Banner, The Long Haired Flapper, sometimes even Lindybeige; I'm interested in the utility of clothes and armor. I wanted to add Herr Urst's website because he has some pieces that don't look completely like Nazi larps, but I've realized that is his whole wardrobe, which is, frankly, embarrassing. Glamourdaze has good reference photos, too. Hopefully that somewhat gets you into the rabbit hole of vintage fashion!

my fashion is a mix between edgy, 90s-inspired grunge to pretty preppy schoolgirl academic. i sometimes mix and match the two aesthetics which is easy because both styles have plaid skirts! sometimes i dress up super funky like a Bratz doll with platforms, various bold mix-n-match patterns and crazy accessories but i dislike the attention it brings. it's for fun but i feel self-conscious when people stare at me. i couldn't find anything on the internet that matches some of these crazy outfits i wear. right now i am in love with my 5 inch platform white thigh high Go-Go boots, mini pleated tennis skirt with a black ribbon at the bottom, a white bubble vest jacket, and oversized fruit earrings (cherry, watermelon, or strawberry). i wear red lipstick to match! my fashion inspiration is the 90s, Clueless, Sailor Moon, and Bratz dolls. i wasn't sure what bottom right was, so i put my fashion inspiration there.

thank you for the sources! i am going to dress more vintage and classic when i'm older. unfortunately my fashion right now will look "wrong" on older women because it "ages".

Right now my hair is very long and I love it but on the other hand bobs are so cute too…I either like it really short or really long, anything normal is somehow boring to me.

I really hope I manage to lose weight and finally hit my dream weight this year. My best point is my waist, my shoulders and hips are pretty balanced but my lower body is always slightly bigger than my upper half, so I guess I'm a mix of an hourglass and a pear.

Stylewise I'm rather terrible right now, I dress like an inbetween of an incel and a middle-aged housewive, so I really want to dress prettier, girlier and less boring. But I'm also very tall, so while I plan to get some skirts and dresses, it's probably for the best if I mostly stick to jeans instead of going full on feminine and frilly.

I've been wanting to find some good cult party styled things around town, but most of the things I find are either super body huggy, too sheer, and rarely ever flow-y. I mainly search around thrift shops like Salvation Army and Goodwill hoping to find something nice. I find some good sweaters, but not really anything light or pale colored.

I can never decide whether I want long straight hair or long curly/frizzy hair. I guess I'm just happy if it's long (and it is, right now).
I like darker fashion, especially old school gothic Lolita and EGA, as well as boho fashion. Basically, anything romantic, dark and/or cute/girly grabs my attention. Crosses and chokers are my favorite accessories.
I do also like anime shirts and sweaters, detailed thigh-highs/tights, anything with a sailor collar, crop tops, and the more typical "e-girl" fashion we see everywhere with all the chains/spikes and layered tees as more casual options, but I couldn't fit all of that into the style panel.

Go to a Chinese department store and pick something out from their underwear section. The bras manifacuted for Chinese consumers are on another level - they have really thick padding and they cinch you in like nobody's business. I have an A cup and a cheap pink Chinese bra I had made me look like I was packing D cups.

The benefits are they are affordable and give you tits for days. The downside is that they are uncomfortable and not long lasting - an underwire poking out or a strap coming off after being worn out is not uncommon. Be careful of the material too, if they are REALLY cheap and you have sensitive skin they might cause irritation since they're more or less modified plastic. I would suggest wearing them on occasion rather than daily use.

I felt the same back when I was more into j-fashion, Lolita was cute but not practical for my office job lifestyle. Back then I wore more Liz Lisa, DreamV, Swankiss girly stuff because it was less "odd" looking. I still did feel like I stood out, and as I got older/career got more serious, I felt self conscious in that and started to just wear athleisure like every other woman in my city.

I know this post is old, but:
I had long, waist-length hair my whole life, and was nagged endlessly by my mom to cut it. (I don't actually know what her issue was - there was nothing wrong with it, except it wouldn't curl - a sin in the 90s/00s - and it was eternally wavy)

I thought about it for a long time, and I realized my hair would never be the kind of long hair I wanted as I started doing more adult things. It was thick and heavy and I was wearing it off my face a lot, but it was so heavy I couldn't really put it in a bun unless I pinned it with a ton of bobby pins. Finally I decided to have it cut into a pixie. I knew how my hair looked in updos and I thought, maybe this is a more flattering look.

I freaked out for a few days after I did it, but I've never looked back. I get a lot of compliments on my hairstyle. People say short hair is less attractive, but I think it has a lot to do with the type of haircut and styling. I researched and went to a pricier place for my first cut, so that it would be done right. And then after that I had to find the right person for the upkeep - this is vital. I had some not so great maintenance haircuts. The one thing is that after a week or two, it usually looks OK.

I just wanted to share this because I was very torn about cutting my long hair, but I NEVER wanted anything in the middle. I wanted something very short or I wanted to keep it long. And so far that feeling hasn't changed.

The weirdest thing about cutting your hair though: if you've had long hair since childhood, often it's still long in your dreams, even if your dreams are meant to be from your current everyday life.

What ear piercing would suit me/my ears?

I've been wanting to get more ear piercings for years. I only have the normal ear lobe one everyone has.

My issue is my ears stick out at the top, not a lot but they're not neatly tucked it like some ears, so I don't want my ears to end up looking unbalanced or like they stick out even more.

I have a small baby face, like Barbara Palvin or Ester Exposito (Spanish actress), if that helps in any way, but their ears are all different to mine so I can't compare their piercings

yeah, that stud isn't gaudy or overly attention-seeking, but you're kinda talking about the jewelry type and not the piercing itself. imo, it just looks wrong. i don't see how this piercing, the hole choice itself, is 'classy'. it just looks off, like an eyeball in the middle of a forehead. it also looks like a pimple if you aren't looking at it very closely.

Made one of my best decisions last year where I threw out like 80% of my pants and started wearing mainly maxi dresses and long flowy skirts.

As someone who’s bottom heavy with stumpy looking legs I’ve never felt more feminine while also being comfy as fuck. 10/10 recommend.

No. 134459

A conch piercing is the one just above your earlobe - the ring piercing here >>134452, not the stud, is it not?

If you were talking about those piercings where the stud is, then I totally understand, those do end up looking trashy a lot of the time. If I wanted to have one, I'd probably just wear a fake.

No. 134463

oh, you're right. doesn't change it much for me though. looks slightly less dumb but still out of place? top and bottom make sense to me just viscerally (though i still don't find them necessarily 'classy'), but the middle gives me anxiety. like it's going to fall off (obviously i know it isn't). i don't think i've ever looked at a piercing and thought 'classy', though, is my point. it's fine, it's just not 'classy' to me. piercings can certainly be cute and give off a certain vibe, but i rarely have seen people associate them with class.

Where I live a lot of malls are shuttering for the pandemic, and a lot of the fast fashion stores (like forever21) were on their way out anyway. I think this is profoundly different than both of those instances because you physically can't go shopping, and the need to shop online is so greatly decreased because bars/clubs are closed, and concerts and festivals are postponed. I know some people end up shopping online out of boredom, but without girls going to the mall to buy outfits for a night out/festival wear for the festival season, and not even having to buy like, cheap blazers and other "first internship" professional clothes for the time being, the need for clothes has greatly decreased.

I feel the same. My face has no colour whatsoever, it's nearly a bit greyish and that's not attractive at all. For example kpop idols do look cute, fresh and youthful but I as a white girl with harsher features look either downright sick or old, strict and boring.
I got a sunburn a couple days ago and the redness on my nose and cheeks immediately makes me appear younger and friendlier.
I sometimes use tanning lotion but it doesn't last long at all and matching foundation to my ever changing skin colour is difficult af. My clothes probably don't match me at all either.

No. 135696

Yes, exactly what I mean. You can try those gradual tanners that you apply like a moisturizer. They give you a slight glow and take time to develop, so there's no harsh difference between your skin tone at any point, and it won't fade in patches.

I've been going for runs in the sun recently and even with just a slight redness/tan I look so so much better. This isn't me hating my natural skin color. It's me objectively seeing that I look better a bit darker. It's like someone trying to convince me that a huge hook nose looks better than a straight nose because it's your natural nose.

Look up Alexandra's Girly Talk on YouTube. Her fashion videos are AMAZING. Her 2 most recent videos are particularly relevant

Anyone else a bit skeptical about the soft vs clear theory? Although her other theories seem reasonable, I'm not sure about this one. This is probably prefencial but I don't think she looks particularly better with bright, 'clear' colours and find them a bit garish and overly-saturated. Am I in the minority who thinks this?

No. 135808

I think it makes a lot of sense. Explains why I gravitate towards bright colors (dark hair, light skin, bright red lips) as I'm "clear". My mom suits pastels and more muted colors as her skin is tan and hair is brown, she's more soft.

There are exceptions that I've noticed, but I find that this soft vs clear theory makes a lot more sense than undertones. In other undertone videos from fashion youtubers, I end up disagreeing with their choices.

No. 135840

no it's 100% accurate. Try it for yourself (wearing no make-up and in natural daylight) and you'll see either clear or soft looks better on you and the other one will make your eyebags and the texture and uneveness in your face stand out more.

If you don't see a difference you probably don't have an eye for it lol

No. 136019

Being clear means having saturated and distinct colors, think disney snow white.
Thing is there are levels of clear and "soft", i prefer to call it ashy. She is not perfectly clear imo, she has some ashiness to her skin, so some muted colors still look good on her.
Look at pictures of someone like Monica Belluci. She is much more obviously clear and looks better in jewel/bold colors. An obvious ashy example could be Cara Delevigne, she looks better in muted colors.

I assume you mean upper left - layers, a diffuser attachment and finger styling. That's what I use on my shag.

No. 136612

This seasonal soft/clear distinction is shitty and misleading because its defining characteristic is contrast, which is translated in the theory to saturation, which makes no damn sense.
Muted/clear, similar to warm/cool, is based on the intensity of the colour of your skin and not the contrast between your skin and hair. That is unrelated. People with high contrast colouring can wear dark or light accents to enhance the contrast of their oufits.
I find it very difficult to tell if someone is warm/cool or muted/clear based on photo/video, but I think the pure colours she is wearing are a little too saturated for her. The drab colours are far worse, though, so she is closer to clear than muted.

No. 136617

I don't have super straight hair, it has a tiny bit of a wave so this might work differently for you, but what I do is take bits of my layers and lightly twist them into a shape when it's wet, then I use the diffuser to focus on each twist and manipulate the hair into the shape I want on a low speed mid heat setting. Takes a while but it looks nice when it's done.

No. 136631

No, that's not gonna work if your hair is straight, you need at least some wave to work with. Finger coiling won't do much for you. You'll either need big rollers or a blow dryer and a round brush to achieve that.

It is neither, but it's worded strangely in that article. I think they meant something like "Amy Winehouse wore […] ballet slippers, not pointe shoes or flats."

Real ballet slippers look like #1 (these were listed online as "soft split sole ballet shoes" online). Pointe shoes are like #2 and similar to ballet slippers, but with a hard tip so you can do pointe work. Ballet flats like #3 are fashion shoes with a hard sole styled to look like ballet shoes.

Gold plated jewelry (as on the website you linked) doesn't last long, especially rings since you're constantly using and washing your hands.

a regular perm will fry your hair and make you look like a grandma (speaking from experience, unfortunately. i had very thick and healthy untreated hair when i got it, too)
if there are any asian salons near you, i'd advise researching digital perms. they look more loose and natural, idk how damaging they are compared to a regular perm but i've been considering getting one for ages. i think the results will be more in line with your desired texture a la right photo.

Hi, I’m a different anon but I’d definitely look at the decades you like (seems like you like a lot of y2k-ish stuff?) and see what adults were wearing then. Like, those tank tops could definitely look cute with a knee-length denim skirt and sandals with a slight platform & thick strap in a neutral color, likewise the pants would look cute with a neutral tight T-shirt. I don’t think the middle outfit is completely unsalvageable, maybe if you wore the big T-shirt dress with grey leggings, boots and an oversized denim jacket it would look cute and 80s. Stick to one statement piece at a time!

Anon, I’m the same age and dress like this everyday. I know lots of gurls are age who dress like this and/or have collections of plaid school girl skirts. Anytime you feel weird, watch an episode of “friends”. Jenifer Aniston was wearing identical outfits (but showing 20% more skin, in her early/mid 30s on the show.

A) the skirt- 2nd hand clothing stores/vintage stores/online (H&M and hottopic has 2 or 3 cute schoolgirl skirts you can grunge up with safety pins). Any Chinese ~kawaii~ clothing site will have them for cheap, some even come with suspenders attached.
B) thigh highs-H&M/target/walmart/forever 21 sell them year round
C) top- go for tighter is better and if you don’t want mid drift go for a longer turtleneck so you can tuck it into skirt
D) wear tiny shorts under skirt (trust me), you can cut them out of cheap leggings to save $$
E) use a knife/scissors, take on side (one blade of the scissors) and run it along the edge of the skirt, going the opposite way of the fabric, push it hard like you’re trying to scrape the edges of the fabric away. This will pick up thread and loosen it causing distressing. So they grungey distress looks more “authentic”.
F) do not over-accessorize or you’ll look tacky af and it’ll be too busy. At most, small earrings/thin subtle necklace/choker, maybe a watch and/or 1 spiked bracelet. You can mix and match with suspenders/thigh high sock garters. Can use a beret hat/beanie/wide brimmed modern hat (no bucket hat, no baseball cap). Less is more.
G) for added 90s grunge, you can add (no more than 3 small sized) patches/pins onto the bottom right/left side of the skirt.
H) try to get some vintage-y shoes to match. Like saddle shoes, flats, creepers, sperry type, or the women’s version of men’s dress shoes, or old school converse. For more grunge go for shoes with platforms like platform creepers, simple platform high heelish boots (no more than a few inches up from your ankle), army combat boots, platform goth boots (below knee), etc. (boots at h&m, old school shoes from vintage stores/lord&taylor/work casual shoe stores, goth boots/platform creepers from demontia).
I) don’t worry about being too old to wear this or that, we’re still young and can get away with it, no one can really tell the difference, so don’t worry you gonna look cute af.

I read something interesting about star signs - how they themselves don't affect your personality, but the time of your birth means you face different things at different times to other people which may affect it. E.g it's autumn when you're born, the weather is warm, celebrations come at a certain stage of your life etc.

I keep reading conflicting info about hair color and skintone…I read somewhere that if you have warm toned skin, you got to pick a cool toned hair color because that would emphasize the warmth of your complexion, but elsewhere I read that the two have to match in color temperature…so which one is it?

I want to do more research on how to dress better, particularly regarding the topic of contrast-when to use contrast, how to use it correctly and dressing around the body's already existing contrast (for example,my hair contrast my skin since my skin is light brown,but my hair is a very dark brown)

What are some resources to learn about contrast,aside from Alexandra'sgirlytalk?

No. 138101

You might find 4 season/12 season color theory interesting. It´s not specifically about contrast, but if you figure out your season you get to know what your colors are and you can apply it to the clothes and make-up you wear.

No. 138106

Certain stores like to stick in certain color palettes, so when malls open back up, I would recommend hitting as many shops as possible and seeing which seem promising. Sometimes certain color palettes just aren't in though. I very cool skin and had trouble buying clothes for several years straight because everything seemed to be rust or mustard colored.

Being cool-yellow is suffering.

I think it's best to go with cool-cool or warm-warm.

there are cool yellows you could look for. IMO, yellow being unflattering probably has more to do with the pink/red undertone of your skin than the coolness, which can be confusing.

olive skin tones can lean cool or warm as well, but if you're a warm-leaning olive, you probably read as fairly neutral and could probably get away with a cool-tone brown or blonde, despite them being cool. the only color family i'd suggest someone with your skintone to avoid is reds, because it'll emphasize the green undertone in your skin.

Ripping out the seems wouldn't be too difficult. As long as you hem the armholes so they don't show the raw edges or fray it should be fine.

i've always heard ruffles but i'm not a fan. it just looks like you're trying to pad up your chest and seems insecure. and then there's straight across bikini tops that are more sporty but i think that's kind of boring and not very sexy, so i think something like this would do what ruffles are trying to do but more successfully. basically any bandeau that has curves/round shapes or some light ruching. it doesn't have to be strapless but this general shape. it looks feminine and cute without trying to overcompensate and you don't need cleavage. in fact, it would probably look weird on someone with big boobs.

You probably already know this, but stay the fuck away from Victoria's Secret/Pink. Aerie is just as trash as they are.

I would say there's no one true essential shoe, it depends on your personal style and needs. Chelsea boots aren't essential for everybody, but if it fits the aesthetic you're going for and you like them, then, yeah, it could be.
Just have a good pair of shoes for each possible occasion: a shoe to wear to fancy/formal events, a shoe you can walk all day in, a practical athletic/running shoe (if you work out), snow boots if you live somewhere snowy, rain boots if you live somewhere rainy, etc. What those exact pairs would be is different for every woman.

I don't get the obsession with fashion 'essentials' and 'basics' tbh. I guess it's fair enough if someone needs help getting their wardrobe started or just don't care and want a straightforward guide to looking decent but it seems like you'd end up wasting money on things you don't truly want. It makes more sense to try develop your own taste before buying a list of things the internet told you to. Is it really that hard to pay attention to clothes to figure out what you think looks good? I'm not particularly stylish but I still know what I like or dislike when I see it or try it on, and I could go the rest of my life without wearing most commonly recommended 'essentials'.

It also makes me nostalgic for New York, i’ve only been a few times and mostly stayed with family in Brooklyn, but I went to a concert on the lower east side once and I was actually blown away by how amazingly everyone was dressed. Can’t wait to visit again once Covid dies down.

Think of essentials not as items but as categories. You need footwear for rain, snow, casual dresses and skirts, formal dresses and skirts, casual pants, formal pants, shorts, leggings, and any activities that require specific footwear. Chelsea boots often work in rain and with casual skirts and some styles of pants, but other footwear could also cover those categories. Sometimes a shoe can cover multiple categories. If you don't ever wear a type of item, you don't need footwear for it.

Pretty generic skinhead shoe, I should've said I meant the style, like the army boot style.

No. 140468

I know what you mean anon, just wear them anyways. Lots of non-racists wear Docs.
The most skin-heady thing imo is the look of them tucked into pants, but even if you like that style, them just wear them. It's not like they have swastikas on them or anything. It must be a regional thing if other anons are saying they've never heard of the correlation, which works in your favor actually.

>get a dark tan

No. 140470

Ex-skin (a trad SHARP not an american bonehead just to clarify) here. You wont look like a skinhead unless you also dress like one. If really don't want to step anywhere near skin territory - if you wear them with jeans and a shirt, don't roll up the hems into cuffs, either wear them straight, tuck them in or wear something else instead. If you wear a shirt, don't tuck it into your jeans and avoid polo shirts. It's pretty easy to avoid dressing in that way tbh. Otherwise, wear whatever the hell you want and stop worrying about it. Now if you told me you wanted to wear them with an oversized bomber jacket, bleachers and a shitty nazi band tee I'd say you have a lot to be worried about. Buy them Docs, girl!

Depends where you're from. In Sweden we associate them with nazis but over the years maybe they are becoming more e-girl.

in my country some people would associate this type of boots with skinheads if you use white shoelaces, otherwise not at all. everything depends on whether you'll dress like a stereotypical racist skinhead or not. And since you imply you like gothic grunge, i'm sure no one will even think you could be a nazi with that styling

Yess, I think never fully outgrew the effy style, baggy muscle tees and short-shorts are still my jam in the summer.

The basic make up is also way fresher than egirl and modern goth stuff, just black lined eyes (or unblended grungy purples and reds lol, the classic lime crime venus palette) and red ou natural shades lipstick and minimal foundation, it always seemed like a more put together version of the heroin chic look.

"More put together version of the heroin chic look" is brilliant and my personal style. A sober Courtney Love but make it sort of gothy.

I get waves in my hair by (loosely) braiding my hair, misting it with a water spray bottle and setting it with a good amount of mousse and sleeping with that overnight, in the morning I softly scrunch out the mousse and ta-da soft waves. Maybe it works for you too.

I'll be laughed at but I love toopoor's fashion at the moment, she's really leant into a soundcloud goth style, all over neck and face tats and it looks amazing on her. I remember crying when I was younger over just not being able to pull off what my peers were wearing but I'm finally done with making sure I'm falling in line with others where i live and I'm happy drawing inspiration from weird music videos and stuff like that.

Depends on if your style is more soft or edgy because jeans and a t-shirt is pretty versatile, but I would recommend jewelry like simple/understated necklaces, earrings, or rings. Necklaces like pic related could work, but that many at a time is a little much for my taste

No. 140552

Yeah anon, I had trouble thinking of ways to help because you haven't really told us what side of comfy minimalist you mean. Normie? Genuine minimalist monochromatic sort of look? Most people already wear a simple necklace with that look so if you want a twist/little excitement you have to slightly lean into another style imo. I'm only good at alty type stuff and if you're already wearing a bit of black, silver rings/chain/layered necklace can really make it look good. If normie, i suppose my best advice would to be vary your accessories because a lot of normie girls wear the same necklace every day and it starts to take away from the outfit. Don't shy away from a cute statement belt or something like that. If I visualise me just wearing a t shirt and jeans right now, i'm thinking cute boots, maybe hoop earrings, idc what anyone says hoops can make even bummy outfits look cute, and a decent fashion as opposed to function jacket that shows your personality (try thrift stores). Imo this takes the outfit from (not an attack) something you could wear at a stock photo shoot from being simple and what you're used to to something interesting without taking you too far out of your comfort zone.

I can never make up my mind about a kind of style so I've always just looked either wild or basic. I've gotten fat so rn I'm mostly wearing basic stuff but I want to lose some weight and feel pretty again. But I never know what aesthetic to go for so I just mix and match and end up looking like I'm special needs.

I didn't even bother with the test tbh, and think other women dislike it as well. If you're still interested in learning your type, you could take a headless pic in leggings or a bikini then post on r/kibbe for a typing.

I just wear what I like anon and you should do the same kek. What do you like?

Preppy pieces in neutral tones look decent on anyone imo, if you don't wanna look into the kibbe shit, maybe just choose cuts that fit your body type. If you're not sure, maybe post your measurements here

No. 142003

The test sucks but you can learn to observe different qualities in others and yourself to learn how to work them. Things I like to watch for are:
- Are the bones prominent or delicate?
- Are the bones wide-set or narrow-set?
- Are the bones sharp or blunt? (this will depend on many factors like fat distribution and muscle density but you can get a general sense of someone being sharp or blunt when theyre around other people in particular)
- Where is the fat distribution concentrated?
- Silhouette re:vetrical line. Leggy (makes people look tall)? Thick upper thighs (this tends to "shorten" the way someone looks even if theyre average height)? Long torso? etc.

From there you can go towards looking at how different cuts of clothes work with individual features. Someone with short legs has different needs than someone with a short torso for instance. If you're super fleshy and curvy you wanna wear light fabrics that flow so it can conform to your curves instead of sitting on top like a sack. Conversely if you're pointy and bony you wanna tailor stuff with sturdier fabrics, you can handle more angles. If youre kinda wide but not in a curvy way, more muscular (usually also comes with narrow hips and height but doesn't have to), you might wanna look at clothes that drape in a more masculine way rather than the frilly feminine way. Things like that.

Don’t be afraid to play around with outfits, shoes, silhouettes, and don’t fret about what you think other people might think!

any girls here with flat chests have advice for shopping for dresses? i feel like every dress i find is all loose and ill fitting in the chest/ribs/waist area because of my tits, even a size small. i don’t even have a very small waist, it’s just all the loose fabric from my tiny ass tits.

If you truly are as flat as you say, bralette are your best bet. Or order online where the demographic aimed at Asians.

Also if your nips are always perky and you feel comfortable. Just don't wear a bra at all. I sometimes where low support sports bras and those work well

That’s why so many women turn to vintage fashion, historical reenactment, cosplay, etc. as an escape.

I wish I had the aesthetic beauty of Tadzio. He's the reason I bought a sailor dress. I agree that 2010s fashion has been the worse so far. A lot of clothes either look too bland, too cheap or uncomfortablly sexual. IMO, 2000s fashion has some ironic charm to it now.

No. 143487

Kind of an aside but 80's silhouettes, even in terms of body shape, were so shoulder-focused with narrow hips. I actually quite like the athletic look of that era due to its slight androgyny, though the fashion was quite ugly imo.

Anons, I’d like some skirt advice. I’ve always had a more tomboyish style and never wore skirts because they used to make me feel self-conscious, especially because I’m on the taller side and am always paranoid that people can see my underwear (I know now that people wear safety shorts under their skirts to prevent this from happening).

Recently, I’ve really been liking the aesthetic of pic related and got a skirt for myself in a similar style. I’ve been wearing it around the house and my mom keeps making remarks that it’s too short and I shouldn’t wear it. I do feel like the length is pretty short, but you can’t see my underwear unless I bend over. I shrugged it off because I know short skirts are sort of part of the style, but now I’m wondering if it is too short? For anons who wear shorter skirts, when is a skirt too short that you know you should size up? I tried sizing up with the one skirt I bought and while it was longer, it was too baggy around my waist and made me look frumpy.

No. 143613

Also for sizing up, if you can go to a place that sells for tall people. I'm assuming by tall you mean significantly taller. If so, you can also try knee-length or slightly above knee skirts made for short women. They usually end up in a good place if you're taller. They kinda fall flat sometimes since they're not designed to be mini though.

Hi anon, I'm 5'10" and wear short dresses/skirts with platforms/heels every day (well… pre-COVID). Realistically, it's easier to get away with when you're thin: I haven't gotten any real comments about the length of my clothes, but my heavier friends have, and we've talked about the weird double-standard there. However, I am of the opinion that a skirt is too short only when you think it is. Just make sure you wear safety shorts underneath to avoid accidents, just as you said you do.

During the winter months I also wear pantyhose like >>143612 suggested– but I only wear black clothes so my pantyhose are also black. They can be pretty hot in the summer so I wouldn't recommend that.

TL;DR: wear whatever makes you comfortable. Fuck the haters. There's no way your skirt is too short unless your vulva is hanging out, kek.

Thanks for the advice, anons! I guess skirts look longer on thinner frames because when your hips are wider they kinda flare out more and look shorter. Unfortunately my body type is weird where if a skirt fits my waist it often ends up being pretty short, but if it's a proper length it'll end up being too loose around my waist. But anyway, the advice was really helpful and I'm excited to start buying some more cute skirts for myself!

I used to wear mini mini skirts- often they just barely covered the butt and I definitely couldn't bend over without showing my underwear/safety shorts. (Any longer than that and I thought I looked dumpy and short legged in them) In hindsight I kind of regret this. I don't think it was too short for others (as long as I wasn't bending) but it was too short for my personal comfort. I could never do dumb everyday movements like reaching for my bag on the ground, bending over to pick something that I dropped, tying my shoes or even crossing my leggs without worrying about my butt/safety shorts showing.

Never got any comments though. I think you should take your mom's opinion with a grain of salt, she's from a different generation where different skirt lengths were appropriate and you're (I assume) a young woman, so you can pretty much wear anything you want. If you want to wear the style in pic related and you're willing to sacrifice some personal comfort, do it. It's really pretty and not that kind of too short.

No. 143808

From 16 to 20ish year old, I only wore skirts, everyday, no matter the weather. Personally I would check in the mirror, how the skirt falls when you sit, bend, kneel down etc and what is visable. If its like the one in the picture your probably fine though.

When I bike or walk and the model is flowy I always wear a tight cheap H&M skirt underneat to not have to re adjust the skirt all the time, and just take it off once i get indoors.

Depending on the material a lot of skirts become a little bit looser over time, so i wouldnt size up.

If your uncomfortable about sitting with the skirt in public maybe just drape your coat a little over your over it, maybe you can find some biker shorts that are comfy, or wear thights.

Not sure what your measurements are but my problem is similar. What I've found is that A line dresses with fitted waists and shirred backs/some sort of stretch are my friend. Sweaters and turtlenecks can look good but will definitely exaggerate your chest even more. It might sound anti intuitive, but lower necklines tend to be better than high ones, as long as they don't show too much cleavage. High necklines tend to make your chest seem even larger and you'll get the opposite result from what you want.
Longer (right above the knee or lower) dresses with fitted waists might seem to veer into the 50's style too much for your taste, but there's quite a bit of variety. Since you have a small frame you don't need to worry about looking too bulky when adding some volume to your hips to compensate for the bust. Dresses (as long as they fit comfortably) are also gonna be much better than skirts with tops. Somehow those always tend to attract attention to the chest, especially with high waisted skirts.

damn anon, that was quick! I didn't expect any replies, thanks so much!

No. 144479

Imo is over priced for how what it is. the quality at least from what I have felt is similar to really any other fast fashion like HM and those sorts. Plenty of other brands on slowly copying Brandy and for cheaper. Target has some newer stuff in the same vein, as well as Macy.

I bought a lot of brandy in my early 20s and it all fell apart. Its not worth it.

I think these dresses are cute but now that this style is getting popular due to the "cottagecore" trend, i feel like the art hoe aesthetic is gonna shift to this style and it's already ruining it for me. same with gingham patterns.

No. 144519

the quality is shit for what you pay for but they're so popular due to marketing (similar to UO). i have sweats and shirts from there and all of them started fading, piling, and ripping in less than a few months. although their dresses are some of the cutest i own, there are cheaper options since all the fast fashion brands are making dupes of brandy now.

Well I own two of the sweatpants and a bunch of their shirts and dresses, ive never had an issue with the quality? I wear the sweats quite often theyre the comfiest I’ve worn imo and the outside is quite thick and sturdy and haven’t gotten any rips or anything, their tops are quite thin tho but I’ve also had no issues with them..

Does anyone have a website they trust that does the package forwarding from Asia (don't know the exact name of this service)? Like those services where they order the item for you and then send it to you because the shop you want to order from doesn't ship to the US. I want a package forwarder I can trust. There are some FILA sneakers I really like but they are exclusive to FILA Korea and I can't order from the US.

This is just a small vent, but I feel like literally NOTHING looks good on me. I look frumpy in fucking everything. And it's not like I have a freakishly weird body, I have an average built, pear shaped body, long torso+short legs, which is quite common I think.
Do you guys know of a website or something where I could read about fits and shapes and fabrics and how to combine clothing items in general? I feel so lost

No. 144988


It's likely that you are just feeling self concious about your body and lack confidence.

You somehow have likely convinced yourself that you are not good enough to stand out but at the same time you don't want to be invisible.

I think this is a problem that a lot of women have when it comes to fashion, which is why so many women end up wearing nothing but skinny jeans or leggings with black or white t-shirts although they would like to get a bit more adventurous.

I would suggest slowly coming out of your comfort zone.

For me wearing anything other than black leggings and a loose top was really scary for a long time.

I started slowly. I went out and bought a pair of high waisted shorts, then I purchased my first crop top. I was loose fitting and had a tie around the waist. I'm probably bigger than you and a bit apple shaped.

Then I got a sewing machine and started buying high waisted jeans and tailoring them because they never fit me off the rack. I have moved on from loose shirts all the time and I now wear crop tops.

If I can do it so can you.

No. 144989


Brandy Melville is so generic and overpriced. I love that aesthetic but it's not special, it's basic as fuck.

You can literally find that style of clothing in any fashion forward women's clotheing store, Zara, H&M, Charlotte Russe, Forever 21, Asos ect.

Brandy is a great example of how advertising makes the brand. It's exclusive, mean girl image is what makes people throw their money away. The style is not unique at all.

No. 144991


The idea of low rise ever returning gives me a serious anxiety attack. I remember how godly uncomfortable they were and how they just wouldn't stay up no matter what I did or what size I wore. They sat right near my bladder which is sensitive as it is and I remember being oh so cold every winter. They would literally give you trench foot and cold kidneys.

Where I currently live in Eastern Europe I see middle aged women predominantly wearing low rise jeans and they never really gave them up. It gives them the most awful muffin top and although they pull their shirt all the way down to their hips you can still see the fat bulging over their waistband. It's not a fortunate look and I can't imagine they are as comfortable as they could be. Either that or they are extremely fit and they wear low rise like Brittany spears did in the early 00s. I'm not a fan of that look either, it makes them look like they are clinging to their youth and just can't let go of a trend that died out forever ago.

No. 144994

I'd worry more about tops. You could wear the same pants every day and nobody would know. Laundry is you main concern, sobase it off that. If you don't mind washing frequently, you could definitely just have a few solid blouses. More distinctive pieces will be more memorable, so keep that in mind. There's nothing wrong with people knowing you wear clothing more than onceafter you buy it.

If you're interested, kibbe is exactly what you described. I don't follow it religiously, but it has definitely helped me dress better and understand why the clothes I naturally gravitated to before because I liked their style, looked shit on me. There's a kibbe thread in the catalog somewhere.

Is it normal to have a gap like this when wearing high heels? If I go a size smaller, my toes hurt

No. 145132

Celebs wear them a size too big so that they don't get blisters since they usually only wear a pair of shoes once/a few times for an event and never actually break them in. I can't walk in heels if I wear them oversized and just break them in at home beforehand to avoid discomfort. If you can wear them safely and comfortably just go ahead and wear them a little big, it's fine.

No. 145144

I wouldn't say it's normal but you're also not getting your heels custom made for your feet specifically. So in that sense it's not odd that you're not finding heels that fit your feet perfectly.

No. 145462

Look for sterling silver pieces (not plated), you can easily find that at very reasonable prices. There's even sterling silver jewelry on asos. If you're into gold, you won't find pieces that are both affordable and will last a long time, because gold pieces in the lower price ranges aren't solid and will rub off. If you want to wear gold, I would recommend saving up and investing in solid gold pieces that will last you a very long time.

No. 145483

I buy from Ana Luisa, Reliquia and Etsy. The other poster is right that silver is cheaper and more durable at lower prices. I love gold, so when buying I make sure that either it's cheap enough for me to replace frequently, or beautiful enough that I'm willing to spend $100+ for solid gold rather than just plated.

I quite like Stradivarius's clothes, not sure about the stuff on their website but in the store they have really nice, high quality clothes. Their jeans are the only ones I like, and I've been wearing their simple tops for years.

Not sure where their clothes are made, I wasn't able to find that out but perhaps Spain.

Uniqlo also has good quality clothes albeit a bit too simple and they're still made in Bangladesh

No. 145609

I've definitely seen clothes in regular fast fashion stores (stradivarius, mango, bershka etc.) that are made in Spain or Portugal. I don't know how much more sustainable that makes the clothes, but it's out there if you want it.

No. 145735

Stradivarius is not high quality anon…. it's just not. I have a couple of tops and skirts from Stradivarius, and they're fine for what you pay for it (unlike say, primark clothes, that get holes in them after very minimal wear), but they're just quick and cheaply made fast fashion clothes. "Really nice, high quality" clothes is a whole another beast that we (unfortunately) can't get at stradivarius prices.

This is a silly question – sorry. I desperately want to dress nicer. Most of my life I haven't given much thought to my clothes and more generally my appearance (autistic lol). Most of the clothes I own are from when I was in middle school. Most of it isn't flattering at all and doesn't express my personal ~style~. But I feel so lost trying to buy new things. I have no sense of what looks good on me and what doesn't. I just wish I had someone to tell me what to wear. Would seeing a personal stylist or something help me?

No. 146332

I sympathize with this. Something that helped me to develop personal style was delving into fashion history. This might seem overzealous, but I learnt a lot about how cultural movements influence fashion trends, the use of fabrics and textiles as they relate to particular activities, why silhouettes evolve over time, and the influence of trends from the past on contemporary fashion. Basically, learning that there is a theory behind getting dressed made me feel like I could put together much more thoughtful outfits and actually take pleasure in the art of dressing instead of just feeling anxious and overwhelmed.
Constructing a wardrobe that you enjoy takes significant amounts of time and experimentation. It can certainly help to talk to someone that knows a lot about clothes in the process. If you can reflect on what you think looks good and why alongside the silhouette you think is flattering for your body then that's a good start too. I hope that made sense…best of luck anon

No. 146339

I was the same as you, I never bought any of my own clothes until I went to college, I just wore tshirts and jeans and that's it. Then I started shopping at thrift stores a lot, if you can find a cheap store or if they have big discounts like the ones near me, you can get a lot of different clothes for cheap. Just buy whatever you like and wear it for a bit and see what clothes you feel good in.
Also what helped me was browsing fashion magazines, they really sparked a love for fashion in me and helped me realize what sort of clothes I like, and what I don't like. If you know what you like, it's easier to find it

No. 146341

I just recently got rid of a lot of clothes from middle/high school cause I’ve stayed the same size so never really had a “reason” to get rid of them— my first recommendation is try on the things you have, and anything that’s ill fitting or simply just ugly and you can’t see an adult wearing goes. Figure out what you need to replace, etc, if you donated all your jeans or you need more summery blouses, go to the mall and try things on (ik this might be hard because of covid). I don’t know what your budget is like but I’d recommend going to nicer stores and NOT fast fashion like forever21 and h&m, so you can get an idea of what’s in trend and what adults like. Honestly, if you’re at a complete loss and like a store/brand but don’t know what to get or pair together, ask one of the shop girls what she’d pair with a specific top or whatever. Best of luck!

I know I'm replying to an old post, but I recently downloaded depop and holy fuck the majority of the stuff on the featured page is garbage. It's literally all grandma shirts and fugly denim shorts being sold for 70 bucks a pop but people eat that shit up because they throw a warm toned filter over it and call it y2k fashion.
And speaking of tags, it's extremely difficult to find a specific style or brand because people will tag anything as anything. I literally saw a disney princess children's bag tagged as "cottagecore" "brandy melville" "grunge" and "darkacadamia" among 500 other unrelated tags. I fucking hate depop but I've found a couple of gems.

A lot of the current/trendy fashion would suit your body. High-waisted anything is flattering to thicc hips/thighs with a smaller waist. Dresses that cinch around or emphasize the waist will look nice, same with tops.

If you want to avoid looking childish in general, don't wear anything that has a huge ugly name brand plastered on it, avoid most t-shirts (especially graphic t's), look for materials that are high quality and flattering rather than thin/cheap, make sure your clothes fit your body (work with a tailor if needed), implement interesting prints in moderation, make sure your clothes aren't wrinkly and use simple, pretty accessories to add appeal.

I like wearing tight thrifted pants or long skirts (knee length or longer) that make my butt look nice and a baggy jacket or hoodie.

Oh I do, don't worry. I have SHARP pins on my jackets/bags and wear a lot of anti-bigot clothing/patches. I get the issue too, and I take that on the chin whenever someone asks me about it irl. I'm always happen to talk to people about it and help them understand the difference between them and us, and that I just want to listen to good music, dance and dress this way. It's hard for other skins to figure out if someone's a racist unless they're walking around wearing a nazi band shirt which is more common than you'd think, sadly. And as much as I love the style, I will hang it up one day and go for a more relaxed and less politically charged style.

No. 147306

This is so stupid. Encouraging people to wear pins or patches to prove they don't hold xyz political opinion only supports the idea that choice of clothing style and political opinions are inseperably and absolutely always connected- which seems the undesirable outcome to me.

oh man I love the skinhead look and something about those Fred Perry shirts are sporty and badass. I work at a place that sells some Dr Martens and I side eye people who come in and look like skinheads. I scan for something to make sure the're not a nazi or something lol. Pic related because the jacket on top is super cute and I want it! The Amy Winehouse foundation collabs always have some good pieces.

I also don't know if there's a thread for it but I do some garment sewing. My garments are a trashfire as I'm not only a self-taught seamstress, but also highly impatient, so when I run into problems I try to just stitch my way out of them as opposed to seam-ripping and such.

It's nice to hear that some people like it. It can look quite masculine sometimes but I think I look quite cute in a polo and a skirt or a nice pair of jeans. And yeah I love the Amy Winehouse stuff too, but I've yet to own any coz it's so expensive. Maybe one day!

I understand why dresses like the strawberry dress or the recent popular LoveShackFancy pieces are widely liked because of how the designs are, but I just don't know why people rush to buy it when it isn't that wearable anywhere.

I'm literally wearing pic related right now just to work from home and grab a coffee. Anything is wearable if you want it to be.

I wish this store had short dresses. Are there any alternatives?

LSF has a few short dresses! You could also check out Reformation?

I don't get the hype. This dress is so ugly to me.

Not sure if these stores are outside of the EU but try stradivarius and pull and bear, they are f21 level pricewise and they have similair prints and boho/prairie vibes.

Actually just live her life, being a megabitch Stacy NYC hipster is such a dream.

In this video, this girl says skater skirts as well as thigh high socks were shit trends in the 2010s. In other videos she's said that high-waisted jeans and skinny jeans are also out of fashion or will be soon. I still think all these things are cute and much prefer high-waisted everything. Am I going to look old if I continue wearing them? :(

Also, I'm just wondering what people's opinions are on her fashion takes. I know it's just her opinion and ultimately doesn't matter lol

What she's saying is incredibly stupid. People are still wearing high-waisted everything, celebrities and "regular" people, and I, personally have been wearing skater skirts forever because they're cute as heck and add a bit of girliness to everything. You won't look old, anon. I can guarantee most people would disagree with her opinion.
