recommendations for a beach cover up, kimono, or dress? I haven't been to the beach since I was a kid but I'm probably going in April. I have some anxiety about it. I have a black suit and a white one, but I think I should get something to wear over it in case I have to get drinks, etc.

I looked on Amazon for cover ups and they all looked kind of matronly or basically like stuff my mom would buy. Do younger women wear these things and look ok? Genuine q, since I have no recent knowledge of beach stuff. Or what kind of beach clothes should I get, if not a cover up?

Ah fuck I don't want to do this

I wear any of these two, either a comfy jumpsuit or a short dress. You will want short stuff because changing rooms can turn into a disgusting mess, so long dresses/pants will be a bitch to put on. You will also feel too tired to deal with denim anything, buttons, fliers, or scratchy fabrics, so make sure it’s cotton clothes and with drawstrings or something you can just put on without struggling.
It’s better to go to the beach with a swimsuit in white or light colors because exposing yourself to the sun wearing dark colors can be harmful for your skin or at least I read that once and now I’m schizo about it
Wear sandals, they’re more comfortable than anything with socks, keep a cap or hat around, lots of sunscreen and water. Also don’t forget to pack extra underwear or even extra clothes and towels, I think it’s better to keep a claw clip around instead of hair ties because putting on a hair tie with wet, salty hair makes me want to kill myself.
I hope you have a good time, nonnie.

thank you nonna, this really helped calm me down. I'm going to take your advice. I really love my new white swimsuit (it was a gift to myself bc I spent Christmas alone again) and I checked to make sure it won't turn see-through. Now I am extra glad I got that one.

Thinking about buying second hand Lacoste pieces. What do you think of the brand and did Lacoste also develop a shit/trashy reputation in your country? I feel like preppy prenium brands like Ralph Lauren suffered from the logomania of the mid 2000s and now have a chav brand rep

I'd wear a cute longsleeve summerdress. Maybe a lace one or a low back/cut out back if you want something more fancy. Dress it up with a nice pair of heels or sandals, a small crossbody purse or clutch and nice jewelry and you're all set. The weddings I've been to were all on the more casual side though so probably don't take my suggestions if your is very fancy/formal.

I’m 27 where should I shop? I like both dark, “goth” kind of looks but girly stuff like lace detailing, not too revealing or bold etc. as well as lighter girly basic/classic stuff like a lot of the tops Brandy Melville has with the small floral prints or plaid skirts.

It definitely seems I’ve outgrown Forever 21 where I used to be able to find things I loved regularly. H&M is hard to find even basic cute sweaters, everything is drab and ugly now. I feel like everywhere I look, everything is either very loud and skimpy or ugly and boring. Every store where I used to be able to find at least some cute items at have nothing for me now. Please help me.

Other than the dress, you could buy the pieces for these outfits basically anywhere. I see a gray plaid mini skirt, black shorts and skinny jeans, red flannels, and plain sweaters, turtle necks and t-shirts. Even the jewelery and shoes are literally things you could find at target or on amazon.

>>252276
It sounds like you're overthinking it nona. The most important thing is that jewelery should match the other jewelery you're wearing. If you want to bring in colors or design elements from your outfit you can, but you don't have to. The only other thing I can think of to watch out for is making sure necklaces don't clash with the neckline of your top.

Are you looking for physical stores or okay with buying online? I use second hand apps like depop and thredup a lot and I like it. It's easy to search for specific things whether by actual clothing features like "lace detailing" or by a more general vibe like "goth". You can also filter by size, brand, price, etc. FOXBLOOD also has some pretty good wearable goth stuff imo. I'm not sure if they ship outside the US though. Also can't go wrong with ASOS if you want an alternative to Brandy Melville for adults with affordable pricing.

Is anyone here 18/19 and remembers using the internet for the first time and watching YouTubers like mylifeaseva, or seeing 'tumblr aesthetic lookbooks 2014' everywhere? I remember it was like my first time on the internet and all of the clothes looked so pretty and aesthetic. I really wanted to dress like a cool american/californian girl but i was too young to buy my own clothes and pick what I wore.

Now I'm old enough to choose my clothes, I really want to wear like
>white converse
>'boho' clothes, like tassled cardigans/boots and tatty denim shorts
>skater dresses with long cardigans
>ANKLE BOOTS
>studded denim
>shorts with tights

Yeah I think I just want to dress like a millennial substitute teacher kek

I'm 21 but I had the same experience (bethany mota my beloved), and I've been feeling nostalgic for that style of 2013 clothing too, it was comfy. I wanted to get ugg boots so badly this winter but they're so expensive. Shorts with tights are also the best, luckily they never went of fashion where I live

I love ugg boots so much! I got a floral skater skirt second hand and i think with tights and ugg boots it would be maximally cosy and girly. And shorts with tights should never go out of fashion, neither should long cardigans and those chunky knit scarves.

I’m pretty sad that youtubers like Bethany mota and mylifeaseva won’t make the same stuff again, all carefree and idealised aesthetic videos, but this year I definitely want to emulate an ‘i love fall <3’ pinterest board from 2014

Solid dark colors instead of the plaid/tartan patterns. More structured pieces instead of the slouchy jacket. Longer skirts that hit above the knees instead of mid thigh. The dress is cute, but I’d forgo the lace and perhaps either get one with a longer skirt or longer sleeves. Go for items with good quality material, something that looks thick and heavy rather than artificial and shiny.
Why not ask your moid what he’d be interested in seeing you wear and use that to gage if he has any fashion sense or an idea what you like. If he doesn’t, disregard and wear whatever, he may not even notice the outfit change. If he does it could be fun to dress each other up.
Ultimately it doesn’t matter, wear what makes you happy and what you can afford and ideally if you can the best advice for a wardrobe that looks mature/put together: get your things tailored.

The dress is a bit teenagery but everything else is fine. Disagree with >>252439 you don't need to wear ~structured~ pieces and skip on patterns(?!). You're only in your mid 20's, you don't need a ""mature"" wardrobe unless it's for your job, this is totally fine to wear in your free time.

Like I said wear whatever makes you happy. I just meant that style (to me mind) would look more mature with dark block colors and structured pieces. To me that’s timeless and very versatile,(whereas patterns and loose fits can be dated and hard to match) which is important when trying a new style because what if you don’t like it? All that money on things you’ll never wear again and can’t be absorbed into a different style. It all comes down to personal choice, just offering another take. Naturally everything I’m saying is informed by my situation, as anyones would be. Make the choices that best fit your context. And get your favs tailored.

Me! I actually found a vintage men’s suit I liked and had it tailored. It’s a heavier one than in your pic (wool) but it makes me feel like a smug sexy college professor. It’s truly all in presentation and confidence. I wear far more outlandish shit and still get compliments because I act like everything I wear was made for me (I guess it kind of is in the case of tailoring). A lot of people admire it when someone can rock an uncommon look, and those who don’t are petty and not worth your time anyway.

I may be misinterpreting what you mean by romantic, but couldn't you just wear a black bikini with some extra ruffles? I think it looks cute and feminine but not too much like lingerie. If both the bikini and coverup had a lace or crochet design it may be too much. I'm also not a huge fan of overly intricate swimsuits because of the weird tan lines you can get (although that doesn't stop me from wearing monokinis).

I don't think it's too bad, it was around $45 for the suit to be tailored and considering I got it for only $20, a total cost of $65 is awesome to me since buying something new would easily be $100+. It also depends on who you go to. The little old Asian lady tailors (often attached to drycleaning businesses) usually do a great job for much less than a "fancy" place would charge.

I think there are a few aspects that help people avoid this.
>Fit. Clothes should flatter your body and not look like a pile of hand-me-downs you threw on. Be picky about how things lay on you, have something tailored if you love it but it doesn't look right at first. Loose/baggy styles are fine so long as you can still tell you have a body underneath them.
>Accessories. When you're wearing a loud outfit, to avoid that being the sole focus wear jewelry that also draws attention to the hands, face, neck, etc.
>Makeup. I'm never going to say women have to wear makeup but it can help make your face pop where it may otherwise be washed out. You can choose just one feature to emphasize and pair with your outfit like eyeshadow color, lipstick, blush.
>Hair. Don't let it be an afterthought and think about how it pairs with your outfit. Wearing your hair down when a major focus of your outfit is your top's collar, for example, can take away from its effect.
I feel like Indian fashion is a great example of this. A lot of Bollywood stars wear extremely colorful, vibrant, busy prints and patterns, and while it's a lot, I think it usually works. They typically use a lot of makeup and accessories, but even when they don't, they tend to look good because everything complements their body and they look well groomed/put together. Just remember that whenever you wear something unconventional it will always lead to strong reactions, many positive but others not so much. If an outfit makes you smile and feel confident that's all that really matters.

I'm like 1 foot tall so this is a big problem for me. Keep in mind I am a very casual dresser, so this is relative. I hate Kibbe but I learned about how important fabric weight and draping can be through Kibbe. I've found that I look best and least overwhelmed with very drapey fabrics. Stiff and structured garments seem to "wear me." Also as soon as I am uncomfortable with any aspect of the outfit I know it will be "wearing me." If I am fully confident in it then I wear the fuck out of my outfit.
Another thing that helped me personally but by no means is a hard rule, is dressing for the area you live in/are going to. I tried a few things that I saw online that looked really cute and not out of place but when I tried wearing those fashions in my life, I was uncomfortable with the look. Think t-shirt and denim cutoff shorts paired with high heeled sandals (same vibe as picrel). This probably works for a lot of women but in my middle-to-lower-class area, I stuck out like a sore thumb. I mean I knew I wouldn't exactly blend into the background at the grocery store in heels, but I felt very, very uncomfortable which was a sign that the shoes were wearing me. It's taken a bit of that embarrassing trial-and-error but that's the nature of personal style and I try not to get too cringed out by it. If you have a more confident and boisterous personality, the heels might not be an issue for you as it was for me, so it's very personal. The way I remedied the situation was by toning it down a bit & buying a pair of like 1.5 inch sandals that give the same feel of grungey outfit + feminine shoes without making me feel self-conscious.
I'll post a pic of the first pair of heels vs. the second pair if I can find them bc the contrast between them is kind of hilarious. I feel like it's very difficult to gauge how I am going to feel in a particular LEWK or style until I try it irl, as opposed to being able to gauge it just by looking at photos, if that makes sense.
This isn't going to be true for everyone obviously, but this is how I've learned over the years not to let clothes wear me. I still deal with this issue every time I get dressed but it gets easier and easier over time.

LOL this is embarrassing but here is an example of the types of shoes that I thought I could wear casually (I was young ok?? And spent way too much time on Tumblr. This was a huge lesson learned kek) vs. what I can easily wear and feel cute in. I didn't really know that the first pair were like, clubbing heels, (I really like bright green kek) because my perspective was a bit skewed from looking at too many fashion bloggers who wear crazy shit regularly. The contrast of the two pairs is admittedly hilarious though. Now you see why I try not to cringe myself out of existance for wearing the green ones to the grocery store lol but it's a learning process and every failure is a new lessin learned. Eventually you will know from experience what kind of clothes you can wear and vice versa. This turned into a blogpost, my lord. I'll shut up now but that was an interesting question, >>253373. This was part of my personal styling ~journey~; if you want to wear outlandish shit I say go for it and see how you feel! It's the only way. Maybe you will enjoy the looks and attention that your outlandish clothing brings! It's cool when you get comoliments from ither people who you think dress cool too.

Recently had an interesting experience ordering clothes online.

Found this brand that sews its clothes in Ukraine (https://www.lipinskaya-brand.com/en/) and was a little intrigued. Debatable whether a Ukrainian sewing operation is any better than a Chinese one but I'm Ukrainian living in Norway so Slava ukraine and all that. I ordered a dress and a body totalling about 70USD.

(https://www.lipinskaya-brand.com/katalog/platya/koktejlnye-platja/sinie-oblegayushhee-plate-mini-little-art-382/ this dress specifically - love a little over the top eastern european number. )

Then the war broke out and I just sort of assumed that those $70 ended up being a donation to the UKRAINIAN RELIEF FUND and I'd never see the goods, fine by me. A month goes by and I get a notification on my phone that there's a package waiting for me from Odessa, from some man named Alaksander. Don't know anyone in Odessa, but okay.

You can see where this is going. It was my order, sent from a private person, with the addresses written by hand. The clothes fit like they were made for me and have great stitching. Hate to say great customer service 5 stars would buy again but great customer service 5 stars would buy again.

Reading this back it sounds like a sponsored post but actually I wouldn’t recommend ordering anything yet, considering how Odessa just got its shit handed by Russia… Wouldn’t want Aleksander forced to fulfill orders under duress.

For me the area matters a ton too. A while ago I started experimenting with more outlandish eyeshadow. My uni is in a big city so looking like a freak there is not a problem at all and I feel confident. Commuting to it is a different story, since I live in a small boring town. I feel like a freak when I'm walking to the train station kek. The feeling of sticking out like a sore thumb subsided over time but it took a while.

Does anyone have recommendations for cute bras that don't have wires (or at least very minimal wire) but still have padding? It seems like my options are either uncomfortable quadruple-padded pushup with metal jabbing my underboob or super supple barely-there mesh bralet that offers zero support and zero nip coverage so I may as well be wearing nothing in the first place.

I know it’s a basic bitch brand, but I found a few like this from Victoria’s Secret a while ago. Some of them are a bit too push up-y, but they had a nice selection of padded/wireless bras last time I was there. The ones I got are pretty comfortable.

Can any fashnonita help me find a dress almost exactly like this if not this one? I'm not an avid clothing shopper and I'm going insane trying to find one like this that's of high quality not Amazon bootleg quality. I'm looking to spend in the $300-600 range preferably but I could go higher for the right one. It doesn't have to be the same color (though I wouldn't mind if it was or even if it had a nice nature-y print on it) but I really want this exact style of dress for my music festival wedding. It looks like it would flatter my body, be easy to not ruin it in a porta potty because I could just take it off, and it has the sort of hippie vibe that I like. Plus it doesn't look so fancy that I would feel the need to baby it all day long while trying to dance and party and I could even wear it again as a duster or something, but I could still dress it up nicely for my wedding pics. Feel free to laugh at my taste because I know this style is out of fashion right now but if anynonny could help me find something like this I would be so grateful! I searched for this image but all I could find was the photographer and model's names, no information about the dress.

The closest I found is a Chinese Ebay dress kek. But if you're willing to pay up to $700 and it's for your wedding why not commission a dressmaker on Etsy or something to make one?

I split the clothes into neutral lights, darks, and atheliesure/basic girl shit: I hope that reads okay. I'm really new to this and I feel like it needs to be worked on. Any advice is appreciated!

Anyone feel like their fashion choices don't match your facial/body aesthetics? I can't explain it well, but my face is very round and I have big but deep set eyes, kinda like Shelley Duvall and curly short hair. I could almost say I would look good in vintage styled clothes, but what I feel most comfortable in is really baggy black clothes and alt style makeup looks. But my appearance just doesn't work with what I want to go for, instead of that 'sharp' look I want I look awkward, like a deer in headlights. I also like extravagant clothes but I never feel confident enough to pull them off, which I know you'll look like you fit your style if you wear it confidently, I just don't want to look frumpy

Gosh I was thinking about this the other day when I was wondering why is it that I can't wear shirts with bold, curvy or floral patterns on them (the attention goes immediately to the pattern instead of my face and I sort of…disappear in a way? Idk how much sense does this make). As I thought about this, I got this idea (and sorry if this is obvious kek I was happy with my revelation as a person with zero spatial awareness and no attention to visuals) that if a person's body and face contains a lot of straight lines (straight eyebrows, thin lips, long face, tall, or just thin body), geometrical patterns and stripes look better on them because they match their natural features. And the same goes for the opposite, if a person has a lot of softness and curvy lines in them (big, round eyes, big lips, fleshy body) then they should look good in floral prints. Obviously this is simplified and there are a lot of exceptions but you get the idea. Picrel is a fellow straight liner drowning in a floral shirt. I wonder if there is a subtype of alt style that has 'romantic' elements like lace or puffy sleeves or things like that that would harmonize with the roundness of your features?

Yeah. I like cutesy clothes and frills but it clashes with my sharp facial features. I feel like I look prettier in sexier clothes so I just try to mix the two. It's hard to find cutesy clothes with sexy silhouettes that doesn't look like gross kink shit so I try to accessorize in a subtly cute way or choose cute or romantic colorways. I don't really care if other people think it suits me, but I do care about what I see in the mirror. No matter how cute something looks on a model, if I wear it and look dumb I just can't enjoy wearing it. I look like a freak in something like picrel for example.

I think that makes sense, I actually love floral patterns though I don't like a ton of bright colors, I have a few black flowy shirts with pops of color in the flowers. I'm jealous she would look good in the dark clothes I'd like to wear. Another thing I always wanted is really straight sleek dark hairstyles, I think even shaved heads on [some] women make them look even more elegant and feminine, so I did it myself but I didn't have the features to make it look cool, I just looked ill…

We sound similar anon, I have defined features more associated with a sexy look and while I haven't minded leaning into that sometimes I just want to look sweet and innocent. I think you can get away with cute clothes if you style yourself elegantly. Either a sleek bun or flowy hair. Makeup can also soften a lot by enlarging eyes, dewy blush, a pouty lip. You obviously won't transform into an uwu j-pop starlet but you'll come across more like a refined princess or mermaid which is still nice. I think Fanny Rosie is a great example, her looks are really not cutesy at all but she's beautiful and her more "womanly" features still work due to styling.

Hey anons, I've dressed like an emo for about half my life but I really like lovecore, not sure how to incorporate it into my current style though (I wear a lot of tracksuits, crop tops with moons on them, hippie style pants, just outdated shit). I ordered a red dress with a peter pan collar and embroidery recently and am planning on wearing it with combat boots and polkadot tights. I changed my piercings to all be pink which helped a lot imo, and I wear my heart necklace pretty much all the time. Does anyone have tips for styling lovecore outfits with a bit of an edgy twist (that don't scream e-girl!)? Pastel goth really isn't my thing btw, the only ways I've found to incorporate lovecore is buy dusty/not too bright pink accesoires. I don't have a very cutesy face so full on lovecore outfits just wouldn't suit me. Basically, how can I incorporate lovecore into my regular style which is just baggy black pants with a black crop top and a black cardigan.

Not sure how strictly you wanna stick to the labels of emo or lovecore but here are some ideas I had for incorporating lovecore into your wardrobe, esp with an edgier twist. First just add more pink and red even if in the form of smaller accents. Both pair pretty well with black. It's easy to find a striped sweater with those colors. Also maybe opt for a cute heart sweater paired with something edgier like ripped/fishnet tights. I think the key for making this work is the juxtaposition between cutesy elements and edgy ones in the same outfit. Slips, esp with a lace trim, feel very reminiscent of old valentine cards for me and it's easy to find them in red. Red velvet skirts/dresses would also work well with this aesthetic. Heart shaped anything. To keep it simpler, you could just have a basic solid dress or plaid skirt but have heart shaped accessories like a bag or locket. There are also a lot of tights with heart designs. Just some ideas I had, hope this helps

OP here, looking back I phrased my post really stupidly. I meant I wanted to incorporate more elements of that specific style into my current look (only really said that in the last sentence), and just wanted tips on how to do that. Not that I wanted to have one certain style for the rest of my life. I don't want to be any kind of 'core' and don't even have social media, I know about the core stuff via youtube. To answer your question, I have no idea why someone would want to adhere to a specific style so closely. I think it's mostly teens and young adults who haven't quite found themselves yet and want a sense of belonging. Most corefags will grow out of it probably.

Why are kurt geiger employees always so rude? My mom wants to check their stuff out sometimes and they always suck. Aren't they like a "luxury" brand for middle class people so they can pretend they are rich? I don't really care about designer brands but employees in actual high end stores are way nicer. I saw some sandals I liked today but I just don't feel like buying them because of how much the sales people sucked lol.

That's your reason right there. People who are actually rich tend not to really care about showing off their status or even explicitly don't want to show off their status because of all the issues that come with being known as the rich person. People taking advantage, fake friends, being targeted by seedy types. It's mostly middle class people who want to come across as "better" to their peers by flashing their (relatively) expensive designer purse or brand name clothes. It's why you get people basically going bankrupt all so they can try to keep up with the Joneses. Not surprising a middling brand would attract those types.

No. 259251

As long as the material is decent and the colours are toned down I don't think those dresses look costumey, I really like the one you posted. tbh I don't see the point of wearing combat boots and baggy jackets with a style like that, it's mismatching in an awkward way and ruins the silhouette of the dress. It would look nicer if you leaned into the look, like with a fitted waist length cardigan and preppy shoes like loafers or mary janes. It might look overly dressy to some but sometimes you've just gotta go hard or go home imo.

Eh, I think trying to tone down the vintage vibes makes it worse honestly. I can't picture it looking great with combat boots or a baggy jacket. It doesn't match the cut of the dress nor the feel. Like the other anon said, lean into it.

>>259233
90% of the time the costume look comes down to hair and accessories. Avoid pearls, pin curls and kitten heels and you'll be fine!

You might find it hard to style with flats because of the signature length, which looks awesome with heels but does read vintage. Try taking up the hem to just above the knee and it'll be a much more versatile piece. You don't have to cut it, just tack it with a few stitches and iron flat to see how it looks.

Swing dresses came back in the 70s and 90s so you could draw from both those eras. For 70s picnic vibes you could do sandals, wear your hair down, straw hat, loose crochet cardigan and long beaded necklaces or stacked bangles. Besides your 90s boots and baggy jacket, you could do a fitted sweater that shows the collar and Mary Janes, maybe a burgundy lipstick.

I have a whole lot to think about when it comes to "-cores" and "micro trends". For context I'm 25 and generally dressed quite mature from a young age.
I hate and love micro trends, because I never had to words to describe how I wanted to dress but it's easier now to search those styles online to look for inspiration.
What I don't like is just dressing a certain way because it's trendy at the time and wasting clothing and resources to fit a trend that's over in a couple of weeks and then tossing that clothing for the best and latest. Sustainability in fashion is being thrown out the window when zoomers consoom every new trend that pops up off of tiktok and get a $200 shein wardrobe to match it.
So as a categorisation I like microtrends, but taking them and blindly skinwalking to fit whatever's trendy just makes me cringe

I don't really have experience with proper office wear so apologies for being stupid, but I've been trying to find blouses/buttondowns for a new job and I'm wondering if it's common for all of them to be so insanely boxy and unflattering? I see so many tops like left picrel where the shape is literally a rectangle when I want something like on the right. They make me look like I've gained 40 lbs and have no waist. I've tried tucking them into my pants to essentially cinch them around my body, but if the pants sit on my hips then the shirt remains shapeless. If they're high-waisted then the fabric still sticks out at odd angles and looks sloppy. I'd really prefer not to have to wear bodysuits all the time to look more sleek but is there any other option for me? Should I only be looking for "fitted" blouses? This is ridiculous

Look for blouses with darts in the back. Because it's cheaper and people still buy it, a lot of brands don't bother actaully sewing garments anymore. It's not a fashion statement, it's to cut prices.

Around 5-6 years ago when I was working an office job I bought some shirts from Brooks Brothers that were fitted really nicely and were made of nice fabric.

My solution is more drapey blouses in thinner fabrics. They aren't fitted but don't give the same boxy look. Zara usually has some nice basic ones every season.

Forgive me if I sound retarded, I'm not really an avid shopper. But now that I've finally got some money, I want to buy some nice clothes that'll last a while. Problem is, it seems like every brand I look at reviews for has the same complaints about being poor quality. Lately I've been shopping at Aritzia because I like the look and fit of some of their clothes, but everywhere I go there's people talking about their clothes being bad. I haven't the faintest idea of what constitutes as good/poor quality, as I've just recently started buying my own clothes, but I don't want to feel like I'm wasting my money. Does anyone have any recommendations for where a 20 year old college student could shop at for basics that can still look slightly cute?

Sage because I don't know if this should go in the confession thread lol. I've been wearing babushka scarves pretty much every day (with my bangs and sometimes braided hair out) for the past month and I love it. I hate the way I look in hats and this keeps me form wanting to dye my hair 24/7! Especially when it's just tied in the front and has two Dutch braids plus my big earrings sticking out, call me ratarded but I love it! I have been wearing all black for so long and this helps me look more cheerful also it helps protect my braided hairstyles I sometimes wear so I can wear them multiple days! I can incorporate more colored skirts and general clothing items in my wardrobe too which I have never been able to, it makes it so easy! Plus they keep my head warm while walking home on cold friday nights.Babushka kerchiefs for the win!

I love ribbons, lace, buttons, and anything delicate and feminine, while maintaining a dark color palette and goth vibe. Basically, I want to look "creepy cute."
A lot of clothes that I see online that suit this style are either cheap, too revealing, costumey, or all of those things at the same time.

Have you tried looking into lolita fashion? Gothic or classic (specifically that 90s era fruits mag) is probably closest off the top of my head, despite being expensive it doesn't look cheap. If you want something more everyday then look into Jirai, it's based off that whole creepy cute "cute looking but crazy gf" thing (picrel) but that's only really in japan, western girls who wear it just wear it because it's cute

Aritzia is honestly just fast fashion with some nicer designs and a higher markup than somewhere like Zara or Mango. There’s no shame in shopping from there if you like their clothes, but it’s definitely not built to last, and is on par with any other fast fashion brand for the most part.
It might be helpful to learn what good quality clothing looks like in terms of construction (checking the seams and how it’s put together, testing the buttonholes with a gentle tug), which materials are most durable and which ones work for different purposes (a linen sundress vs a crisp cotton Oxford vs a silk camisole top vs a thick heavyweight denim) and go to stores in person to feel the variation in quality with your actual hands.
That makes it easier to shop secondhand or thrift nicer pieces, and vintage or luxury consignment is always an option if you are able to spend more, so that you don’t have to dig through pounds and pounds of cheap polyester garments that will fall apart at the seams in the wash.
It’s easier to find brands you like when you know what decent quality, durable or investment pieces look and feel like, what the composition of materials should be, etc.
If you want to buy secondhand luxury or designer, I would go with Grailed (decent markdowns on less coveted pieces that have been up for a while, some sellers will haggle with you, within reason) or eBay sellers with good feedback who only sell those types of pieces over a greedy and frequently deceptive scalper goblin market like Depop.
Department stores can be a good place to scope out different clothes of varying quality. Their stuff ranges from cheap and poorly made to decent quality with decent construction.
If you are a college student and don’t have a ton of expendable income, well made and versatile basics that can be dressed up or down in different contexts will never steer you wrong. It’s better to get something boring like a cream knit sweater, button up or blouse that can both be worn when going out and in a dressier professional context, and pair of trousers or jeans over something flamboyant that is difficult to wear and plan an outfit around.
A couple of pairs of decent quality shoes in a neutral tone that can pair with anything, and you can cheap out on most accessories.
You don’t have to become a minimalist or build a capsule wardrobe, but people who do live that lifestyle tend to have good pointers on building a simple and interchangeable wardrobe that is a little bit higher quality, and they have their own favourite brands to recommend depending on their personal taste and their use case for their wardrobe.
If you window shop in some department stores or wherever else, you can take lots of fitting room pictures and see which cuts and silhouettes you like best on yourself and your frame, save a little folder on your camera roll so you know what to shop for when you do want to drop the money on something.
Sometimes two pieces of clothing look identical on a mannequin or a shelf and look wildly different on you for reasons you might not pick up on. Drapier tailoring vs darting at the waist, a lower seat on jeans or trousers, different blends of similar materials.

No. 260464

>>260118
Also, in terms of actual brand recommendations, that really depends on what you like to wear and what your lifestyle is. A young professional working an office job, someone who is a bit masculine, or someone who likes luxurious materials and glamorous silhouettes, someone who wants to look normal but put together, with nice details such as good tailoring and a subtle accessory.
Let me know what you like to wear and where/how you will be wearing it, and I’ll drop some recs.

Thank you so much for the in-depth advice nona. I'm definitely a newbie when it comes to examining the quality of clothes. I don't really have a style right now, but I'm leaning toward something like "romantic academia" (tumblr term, I know). I prefer clothes that are basic but still slightly feminine, like with a few frills here and there. I hate cropped shit on a lot of the feminine blouses I see. I prefer neutral or muted colors, don't really like colorful prints. Mostly I just want to look nice at school instead of slapping on a hoodie and pants and calling it a day kek.

Thanks for your honesty, nonnas. I asked my best friend and she said it was great, but she doesn't have it in her to tell the truth if it hurts.
All my clothes are super plain (mostly just the same things in different colors) so I try to dress them up with colorful shoes/jewelry. Can you give me some advice about how to do it better? Like, say with this jeans and top, what kind of accessories would you wear?
My other idea was to wear black flats and dangly earrings instead of a necklace, with my hair up?

There's a saying "black makes color look cheap, and color makes black look boring" so try stay away from mixing black and color in one look. A pair of brown trousers or mid wash jeans would update your picrel outfit a lot.
If you feel comfy in black, pairing it with white always looks fresh and classy.
As for jewelry, minimalism is really in right now as is layering. Combining dainty pieces like picrel is pretty common.

I have a maxi skirt in navy blue, like picrel but with dark green and red stripes throughout (very subtle, it just looks navy blue unless you get very close). I find it very hard to style though because of the color, the only color I can think of that would look good with it is a dull orange but I need dark colors around my face in order to not look like a corpse. I have worn it in the past with black tops/cardigans but I don't think it looks good together, it clashes and not in an interesting way. Suggestions?

maybe find something that has the same navy blue colour? If you need darker colours and you don't want to go for black, what I wouldn't do with navy blue, get a shirt that is the same colour. A dark green might also fit, or you can try something lighter, maybe off-white. Don't know if it's okay for you, I would look dead with any white colour, but I haven't seen your skin tone. You could also go find a fitting red, but red is difficult, but I would think that a darker red with the right undertone could work.

Forgive my autism but why would light colors make you look like a corpse? I think this color would look great with a white blouse, and white usually makes your skin tone look darker and warmer.

I'm going to a family thing, it is a birthday and we're going to a semi-nice restaurant so I'd like to look a bit more modest and put together. I'm thinking a fitted top, long cardigan, nice jewelry/hair and some cleaned, nice looking combat boots are alright but is picrel too casual? Should I go for a midi/maxi skirt instead? Maybe this is a retarded question, they are nice quality pants though (no stretchy jersey material, nice cotton) and don't look old and beat up like most other clothes I own. They're also high waisted and will be very covered by the cardigan so maybe?

I'm going to Florida later this month and idk what shoes I could wear that would match cute summer dresses, skirts, and just regular Jean shorts and a cute top

I hope anons answer, I'm also in the same boat. Literally all the "comfy casual" shoes I've tried have destroyed my feet after longer than an hour's use. I've only been able to wear sneakers without crippling myself but I really need something that looks more polished

it's all about where the pants fit you, they should be at your natural waist. that might not be where they fit you off the rack and you may have to hem them. also kind of the point is that they make your legs look a jillion miles long so if you feel like you look short, no you don't

I have broad shoulders and big boobs, but want to achieve a look similar to picrel. What tops could I wear? Large jumpers or oversized shirts make me look obese because they hang off my boobs, but I don't like wearing fitted tops that accentuate them either.

A few things. Look at the sleeves on tops, is there a seam at the shoulder? That's called a set-in sleeve. This helps to visually minimize the appearance of shoulders and present a more "polished" look. Compare shirt on the left with the one on the right. See how that helps to lean out her frame? Go for that. Don't just go for the huge blousy shirt, go for relaxed shirts that still have some structure to them.

I question if the chill and comfortable look with loose shirt and skirt can across the same way by larger busted women. It's a common look in Korean fashion I'd think because women on average have smaller busts there. Maybe layering an open longer sweater or shirt of a thicker fabric over a shirt with a neckline, keeping the skirt and boots could work. Also could wear lighter fabric button up with top button or two undone. Higher necklines can make your bust look larger. Try to look at silhouette and if they have darts. This video has good tips, I'd see if other ones on youtube help you either.

No. 262989

I feel like I'm imagining something totally different to anons… how short do you think counts as being cropped? I include anything that doesn't end at your hips, ie tops that end at your waist. You don't need any specific body type for that, you just need a high waisted bottom and then the crop top naturally ends right where the bottoms begin. Visually it looks no different to a long shirt tucked into the bottoms, how tf would belly fat prevent someone from looking normal in an outfit like that?

No. 262993

>>262989
NTA, but not everyone looks good in high waisted shit and not everyone wants to wear high wasted shit. The crop trend forces you to wear high waisted everything or expose your belly.

Don't change the goal posts now nonna. I replied to your post about cropped shirts and high waisted pants. If that's all you want even Zara has some.

No. 263006

Jeans with proper pockets and good material, which aren't ridiculously expensive just because it's for women, which don't emphasize curves and are the correct length. Button ups and flannels in the correct length, but also without insane tailoring and which actually fit broad shoulders. Pantsuits and blazers which fit properly and are the correct length, but don't give cinched waist and actually have enough room in the shoulders and back. T-shirts which actually have thick fabric and a normal round collar which aren't super long, instead of a feminine collar and too short. I have to go to the men's section since almost all women's clothes is shaped trapezoid, only accommodating small shoulders and big hips, with no room for biceps if you workout. But I'm also not the height of men in my country, so then everything ends up too long and all tailors have disappeared so no that's not an option.

Same, especially when I live in a place where 25C+ isn't the standard year wide, having a wardrobe full of crop tops would just render it useless for most of the year. If it's not warm outside I always wear camisoles, couple that with being 5'9'' with not exactly a short torso makes crop tops only possible and appropriate for summer hanging out with friends type of situations. Even though I'm blessed with a flat stomach a crop top is just so inappropriate to me for most situations. God forbid it's a loose one and I dare to raise my hands, I could flash somebody kek.

tanning does nothing but give premature wrinkles, spots, and possible skin cancer. no one should ever just be laying out in the sun with the goal of roasting their skin darker. sad that it's so accepted in the west and seen as "being healthy" when it's causing pure damage to your skin.

anon you did not just make me go on a wild ride to research dark skin and fair skin and type all this shit out like a sperg in this thread lmao. darker-skinned people are able to stay in the sun longer because our amount of eumelanin is able to process UV rays, fair skin is only a result of evolutionary pressure of dwelling in the barbaric snow for too long and needing to retain enough vitamin D. from what I also read, vitamin D absorption might be related to bone density, african americans or darker-skinned individuals have higher bone density (stronger bones) than fairer skinned people so why would it make any sense if darker-skinned individuals are vitamin d deficient? it’s because ethnically we have different metabolic conversion of the same vitamin, so it doesn’t mean we are vitamin d deficient. enjoy your red pizza faced skin-shedding master race skin that needs more vitamin D because it’s inherently weaker! go fuck yourself anon don’t ever pull that shit on me again

you said all those words for nothing. this is literally common knowledge that darker skinned people take a longer time to absorb vitamin d than lighter skinned people, and it has been documented in africans who live in northern climates.

Do you know what happens when dark-skin people go to live in Northern latitudes in Europe?

Doctors even prescribe the use of tanning beds in my country and even with all the knowledge today, if you are pale or don't want to stay for too long in the sun, people act like something is wrong with you. It's still hard to find foundation in paler colours in my country because having a tan is still associated with being healthy and the ability to be on holiday lying in the sun often.
I'm also quite pale, I will turn red and then I will look like I haven't washed myself in weeks. Also, I never liked the sun, my skin starts to hurt very fast and I get headaches when it's sunny outside, so why should I punish myself with something that isn't good for me. I'm still angry at my parents that they never cared and I had my first sunburn while I was only 5 years old, I could have had skin without moles, but no, they had to be shit parents.
Fun thing, my grandma is over 90, her skin looks younger than that of my mothers because my grandma never sunbathed, smoked and always was pale.

It's not just the danger, backflips/somersault type moves have nothing to do with skating ability. It's akin to a gymnast lifting weights in a competition.
Surya was a gymnast who switched to skating and she refused to adjust and play by the rules. She got shit because she willingly performed an illegal move and was not a good skater. Good acrobat, perhaps, but not a good (competitive) skater.
Also the "amazing move" can be performed by literally anyone who can do a backflip and skate somewhat OK. The only difference is you just rotate yourself a bit less and land flat, on 1 foot if you can. There's a scrote who learned how to backflip on ice in a day.
That's not to say it's not a cool move, it just doesn't have a place in competitions and not that big of a deal as people make it out to be (probably going by the fact only a handful have done it, which is more due to the rules rather than ability). You can do it on shows to your heart's desire but it has no place in competitions.
+figure skating will always be elegance and skating skill first and athletics second. There's a reason why it's also considered a performing art.

I loooooove long skirts, I'm wearing one today! If I wear a nice blouse I look effortlessly elegant, if I wear a t-shirt tucked into it, it's like a comfortable, casual-cute look! So versatile, and I love the look of it flowing around as I walk.

I think midi skirts are better for travelling though. My skirt today hits my ankles and I have to hold some of it up when walking up/down stairs and dealing with my skirt length + luggage seems like a nightmare. Midi lets me have the length I want but without as much of the nightmare (but I still prefer the look of long skirts over them).

I have literally ZERO clue about fashion. I just want to look like an actual adult, but also not melt in the heat. Yes these are men's clothes, but apparently a men's xxs/xs fits my shoulders perfectly, with the seam actually at the shoulder, instead of a few inches too close to my neck. I'm not going to battle with women's clothes again, when you try a bigger size, the shoulderroom just never seem to get bigger, just the waist and I like big pockets and I cannot lie, you other nonnas can't deny. I'm not looking to be convinced to not wear men's clothes, it doesn't feel assuring, it's just really annoying. I'm just wondering whether this looks absolutely retarded or not. I've mostly been wearing cargo shorts and t-shirts due to the heat, but that made me look a bit too immature.

Yeah, that particular outfit looks stupid. The colors go together okay-ish, but every single item is at a different level of formality, and it really clashes.

I don't like bodycon stuff cause i don't wanna show the shape of my whole bottom half so much… but anything thats not bodycon is either not flattering the bit of waist space i have or still showing off my bum too much. I think lower rise stuff is also just unflattering on me in general.

Not that anyone cares but no dancer ever wears this except for principal dancers who get to wear whatever the hell they want, which usually isn’t aesthetically approved wrap cardis and leg warmers but random neon leotards and ugly dance warmup gear that they got handed down from older girls in the ballet company. As a soft summer toned ballet dancer, I really wish all of the gear was muted like tiktok girls seem to think but most of the stuff available at actual dance fashion stores was bright and usually tacky as hell.

a black belt with a gold buckle would pair great with the dress. in terms of tights it really depends on the season. sheerer black tights with black socks would look good. you could add some type of knitted cardigan to add some texture. in warmer weather, no tights and the black sock combo looks good as well. you could also pull from the colors in the floral patterns of the dress for the socks instead of using just black. cute fit!

I don't think this would become a standard in modern society, I just like the aesthetics of covering up most of the face/body in intricate pattern. Many would believe it's 'restricting' to women to be forced to cover up even if they wanted to for themselves. Scrotes will unfortunately think any fashion choices made by women are somehow catering to them.

Already sounds more age appropriate than the 90's teenage boy thing I've got going on kek (picrel). What are adult looking warm weather outfits, with no feminine stuff? I don't want to look like Honter, but also don't want to look like a teenager either (so no super oversized stuff). It's fine if you want to wear feminine things, amazing if that makes you happy, but it's just not for me. I'm not looking to be convinced to grow my hair out, wear make up and buy ill-fitting clothes from the women's section. The names of these sections aren't laws and or prescriptive, it's not illegal anymore for women to wear men's clothes!

Oh you're the person from the kibbe thread aren't you. No one is forcing shit on you, but "feminine" clothing isn't all the same and since you are a woman the cuts will fit your body better most of the time. You don't have to rigidly stick to one box, shop or aesthetic. As you said, it's all just clothing in the end so why not explore? Especially since current trends aren't about extremely body fitting silhouettes like in the past.

>and since you are a woman the cuts will fit your body better most of the time
Most clothes at the women's section are made for women with tiny shoulders, who have at least some boobs and hips, not inverted triangle. When you go a size up, only the waist gets bigger and the garment gets longer, the shoulderroom never gets bigger. How often do I have to explain that? You can suggest different masculine aesthetics, I'm just not interested in feminine aesthetics, because that is what has been pushed onto me all my life and I've been beaten for not wanting to conform. Why do I need to explore something which is already being forced on all of us through female socialization? If I want to hear this bullshit, I can just go back to conversion therapy. I'm sick and tired of this pressure to "do both", because wanting to be exclusively gnc or masculine is just sooo taboo. I don't feel comfortable in feminine shit, it makes me look like an AGP. I don't fucking care that there is oversized crap at the women's section nowadays, when the shoulders still have no fucking room and oversized shit just makes me look like a teenage boy. When I buy men's shirts in size XXS-S, the seam actually hits the end of my shoulder without being oversized, instead of being bunched up halfway to my neck, strangling my upperback and being a tent around the waist. Call shit ugly all you want, but why the fuck do the suggestions always have to be "please perform femininity for me, please get back into the box of acceptable amounts of androgyny, please do both!".

If you remember that anon from the Kibbe thread, then don't you also remember her difficulty finding female clothes that fit her shoulders? You're right that fashion trends have evolved beyond bodycon, but mass produced clothing is always going to aim for the "average" female form and that does not include wide shoulders and other "unconventional" measurements. I think she knows better than some random anon which clothes are actually proportionate to her body. Plus she already said ITT that she's not interested in feminine fashion, so why tell her to explore? On top of that your writing style is so weirdly hostile. If she wants to dress masc and thinks that how she looks best, then just let her be.

The look would be fine, but I wouldn't be able to recreate it with clothes from the women's section without it looking ill-fitting.

Stuff for hot weather just seems like a minefield.

Don't need to get it tailored, size xxs-s fits me just fine, at most need to hem it a bit sometimes (which I just learned how to do myself). That's what I'm trying to say, why should I struggle and feel defeated when trying to fit in clothes from the women's section, when I can already fit in men's shit easily and the seam actually hits where my shoulder ends, instead of being halfway to my neck and bunched up? I can't help it that somewhere between the 80's and the 2010's the industry decided that women cannot have broad shoulders.

I never even mentioned height as a problem? Most women in my area are around 6 foot tall and I'm short in comparison, so that's not the issue. I just have a ridiculously big ribcage and very wide shoulders, I measured, I know it's fucked and out of range of what is normal for women. /fit/ would be jealous of my frame. I've decided to embrace it and started lifting, but that also means everything has gotten even broader. Since when does off-the-rack women's clothes take into account whether someone is a powerlifter or bodybuilder? There's a reason a lot of female bodybuilders and powerlifters who have no problem being feminine just live in stretchy bodycon stuff, the rest just doesn't fit.
>>264502
The shirts generally have a feminine collar, are thinner fabric (requiring you to wear a bra or pasties at least), the formal shirts don't fit my shoulders, arms and upperback and swim at my waist, I got a faux leather jacket from the women's section which doesn't fit my shoulders and strangles my upperback but fans out at my nonexistent hips, it looks comical. I don't like to wear the oversized trend either, because that makes me look like a teenage boy, I want to wear things that actually fit well. Why is it so difficult to understand, that things have to fit right at the shoulders? The seam has to hit the end of the shoulder, otherwise everything looks bunched up. Women's clothes is shaped like a trapezoid. If you go a size up, only the waist and length gets bigger, shoulderroom stays tiny.
>You don't look like a man no matter what you wear.
Nice that you and other RFs have that opinion, problem is that when I had longer hair and tried to fit in a woman's blazer and shirt, I was asked at work whether I'm an AGP a couple years ago. The ill fitting clothes, in combination with my features, makes people think they are "clocking" me. I've heard enough of it since puberty (people would constantly ask me whether I'm intersex) and I really don't want to deal with it, especially not in this climate. Women's clothes also have fake pockets, shallow pockets, no inside pockets, worse thinner fabric for a higher price etc. I swear you can go to the men's section and the women's section at the same shop and you will notice that either the men's is cheaper or will be higher quality at the same price. Short fashion cycles are created by retailers to drive purchasing of cheaper, shoddier clothes for high price. Maybe some women are amenable to this because they enjoy adopting new looks rapidly, but it completely swamps out availability for quality clothing at a fair price for the not insignificant number of women who want quality staples. I don't want to run around like a headless chicken or spend extra just to find something good at the women's section, when I can just go to the men's, since I'm privileged to be flat and have straight hips so I can fit. Even women's workwear (for manual labor) has this problem, you wear it for safety, but as soon as you get the women's version it's suddenly a worse quality and not as durable. The differences are so vast, that you really cannot convince me, unless it's the women's section at a secondhandshop, because the 80's knew that women with broad shoulders exist and vintage clothes have better quality than whatever you can get new at the women's section for a fair price.

>also dont use fabric softener. no idea if dryer sheets are harmful but they're not necessary either, and they might give you acne or dermatitis.
>if you line-dry, don't do it in direct sunlight unless thats the only way stuff gets dry (if you live in a high humidity climate).
>heat ages fabrics. lower heat in the wash/dry cycles is always better.
>mechanical tumbling also ages fabrics. when you transfer clothes from the washing machine to the dryer, notice which ones already feel almost dry. take them out and let them air-dry. two benefits: that item doesn't get dryer abuse, and the items in the dryer probably dry a little faster.
>if it says hand-wash, and you really care about it, actually hand-wash it in a sink, bucket, tub, whatever. the pro-tip is to wear these items sparingly and then wash all of them at once like once a month or once a season or however often makes sense.
>get a little mesh garment bag for putting bras inside of in the washing machine if you don't hand-wash them. do NOT put them in the dryer, lay them out flat somewhere to dry.

I feel like a lot of warm brown shades are really summery, see picrel. I also feel like fabric type, sheen and weight is important to consider as well. A dark green velvet dress or a burgundy jacquard skirt will read fall/wintery, while a burgundy silk cami paired with denim cutoffs and heeled strappy sandals, or a dark green cotton sundress with white shoes/accessories will both read summery.
