So do you mean the sculptural style, texture or colours?

I feel like clothing from Aje might appeal to you if you like the sculptural side. Pic is some of their pieces so if the shapes appeal to you then check out the website.

They are a little expensive but good quality and maintain a classic 'art - gallery' semi-stylish curator look.

This is sort of a difficult question because no one "style" encapsulates this look. I see draping, sea foam green, art deco, bronze, straight lines, beaded crystals, soft and feminine elements. Some of the items in picrel are more timeless/vintage styled but could still be worn today. This was fun I hope you don't hate it kek

Can we talk about bags? I'm in desperate need for a new one and need some inspiration, stores, brands, etc.
I'm looking for a bag that offers the following:
- real leather
- black
- shoulder strap
- closed with a zipper
- DIN A4 has to fit easily into it
- style shouldn't look elegant or posh, more grunge, goth, crumpled, but not childish (like Killstar, etc.), something like picrel

It doesn't have to be from a recent collection, I don't mind out of fashion stuff and if you have recommendations for stores (in Europe would be nice) that sell designer stuff cheaper, I will gladly listen.

nta but the givenchy pandora bag might be dated by trend but it's still a nice bag and fairly timeless in terms of look. my issue is the material. i have one in the wrinkled sheepskin (it was gifted to me) and it's very… thin. i was shocked at how fragile it feels. i haven't used it once because i worry about its construction (plus i really don't use leathers or anything but woven travelbags). if you buy the pandora or anything by givenchy don't get the sheepskin

You could try wearing a thin pair of leggings underneath, especially if you're going for baggy jeans that are currently trendy that'd be easy to do. Or wear trousers/pants made from something other than denim.
>cant wear bras with wire
>cant wear off the shoulder tops/dresses
I don't see the problem with this? They're not common in day to day clothing.
>i struggle finding cute clothes where my bra straps don't show.
Just let them show, no one cares about seeing a bra strap. Alernatively use transparant straps (I'd rather just let my brastrap show but it's an option.

Correct me if I'm wrong but to me it sounds like you can wear nearly any dress or any skirt+top combination you can grab at the store.

I'm not someone who changes her bag very often and therefore I'm looking for a durable, nice, practical bag. I love the Alexander Wang Rocco bag, but because of the studs it's a rather heavy bag and I'm always carrying around books and stuff, so there is enough weight in my bag already.
That Givenchy bag is really nice, especially the wrinkled sheepskin version, but if it feels thin, it might be the wrong choice for me (now I'm sad). Guess it's time to learn how to make bags, kek.

Question, what are some cute slightly androygnyous styles that are also lowkey? I've had a revelation that I really like oversized, drapey things but not really a lot of bulk either.

No. 290059

Try to look beyond copy paste aesthetics. I have a specific personal style and you can't find it as any aesthetic or -core online. Being caught up in aesthetics makes it difficult to see the potential of clothes

No. 290084

Why do you think you can't pull it off? Are they reasonable, grounded reasons, or do you just hate yourself? Secondly, what's the worst that'll happen to you if you wear a potentially unflattering outfit? You're not going to get stoned for wearing the wrong jeans.
As for concrete advice, what helped me the most in curating my wardrobe is knowing which silhouettes look best on me. I'm an hourglass so I like a cinched waist, A line dresses, cropped jackets. Beyond that I shop for materials that feel nice, and colours and prints that make me happy. IMO You're never too old to have a fave colour and as an adult it's your God given right to fill your space with it. As >>290059 said, copy/paste aesthetics are only useful to a point. Try to branch out and select individual pieces based on their merit (uniqueness, function, feeling, if it flatters you). The best way to do this, I think, is thrifting and shopping secondhand. It's a lot easier to find random/interesting things that stand out from the pile, compared to a mall or something, where these days the clothes are always grouped by style/aesthetic.

No. 290103

Thirding this. Don't confine yourself to a single aesthetic or what you think you "should" wear. It sucks the fun out of fashion. Branch out, explore, go shopping with someone who holds different opinions, buy something you usually wouldn't and try to incorporate it into your closet. Sometimes it doesn't work out and it's a lesson learned but in my experience if I really love a piece of clothing I find ways to style it with what I already have. It forces you to think creatively and go out of your comfort zone.

No. 290152

File: 1664077433109.jpg (752.61 KB, 1080x5297, AndroNonnie.jpg)

Try men's silhouettes but with silk or chiffon, like the tan shirt and the green pleated pants in picrel. Accessories can really help feminine-leaning clothing take on an androgynous style, such as the Oxford shoes and black boots combined with the soft fabrics which empasize long & feminine legs/ankles in picrel. Choosing more traditionally masculine colors will also help tip otherwise neutral or feminine clothing into masculine territory.
I'm sorry if this isn't what you were asking, idk if you mean "style" as in styles/cuts/silhouettes or more like naming of specific ~aesthetics~ & when I think "low-key" I think "casual" rather than draped generally, but I hope I got your jist nonnie!

File: 1664078706326.jpg (860.33 KB, 1282x7776, AndroNonnie2(1).jpg)

Here are some more ideas: a chiffon blazer jacket can be styled very casually. Or satin cargo shorts maybe? Camo is one of my favorites for playing up masculinity/androgyny (I always say jokingly that it makes me feel NLOG kek). You can try some pieces in satin so you can keep it low-key maybe? Or like the very bottom pic, the shorts aren't super flowy but they aren't crazy thick/structured and will relax with wear, paired with a flowy, boxy (always boxy if you want to look andro) button-up blouse. I really like small details on otherwise masc/andro clothing, such as small side slits at the hemline of shirts and shorts, or smaller less visually intrusive buttons.
This also depends on your hairstyle and general ~vibe~ of your face and body, in my opinion, so your mileage may vary! If you wanna drop more info I can possibly tailor the looks and come up with different stuff! I really enjoy this kek

I'm getting mine done in person and it'll include:

-Color analysis for both clothing but also skin & hair

Google Seasonal colour analysis or something along those lines to see if you can do it somewhere locally. My mom did it once and took me along and it was just at some ladies' home lol. Basically they have you sit with no make-up on in natural daylight and drape different coloured pieces of fabric over your shoulder, and make you look in the mirror to see how a colour affects your face. Like certain colours are going to make your face look more tired and aged and bring out your imperfections and others are going to make your face look more bright and healthy. You could replicate it yourself by doing that with clothes you already own, if you have a good eye for telling the temperature and brightness/muteness of colours and how they affect your face. I saw it on my mom and I could kinda tell what colours looked worse on her after that lady had pointed it out a couple of times but it's not easy imo. Like in this pic >>290174 I can't tell at all honestly. My mom got this paper palette afterwards like picrel and it's true, those colours do look best on her.

I understand feeling a bit insecure when you're trying out new clothes, especially if there aren't many other people with a similar style in your everyday life. I hope that you won't let these worries stop you from dressing how you want. Also if it doesn't fit properly, maybe you could get it tailored?

I'm not very attractive, a bit tall, and have a troonish build so I feel like a monster if I wear baggy clothes, but at the same time I feel like more gender non-conforming looks suit me better than overtly feminine clothing that emphasizes my unfortunate body and height.

Go to the men’s section. Buy or thrift. If you wear a baggy top wear fitted jeans (slim fit or straight or flared) and if you wear baggy jeans wear a fitted top. This’ll give you a nice silhouette and will stave off the homeless anachan look. Wear funky, fun stuff, interesting prints. I like that colored and printed pants are in right now - hot pink, deep purple, newspaper print. You could always pair a wacky pair of jeans with a generic men’s top.

What about an (updated) style like Avril Lavigne's? She has a different build but in pics she was often wearing fitted tops with baggy bottoms. Obviously her style is also different than what you described but as another tall nonny who struggles with baggy clothes, this type of fit seems like a decent alternative.

That's the Kibbe method, it's aimed at middle aged women and up, just saying because you're probably not middle aged. But if you insist on figuring out your type, there's plenty of guides online and even tests to help you figure it out.

No. 290974

Yep that's called Kibbe typing. You can do a test that measures your body proportions relative to each other which determines your type. There is a Kibbe thread somewhere in /g/. Honestly though I think it's more useful to define your best feature and then figure out how to compliment it. For example I have long legs, so I often wear pinstripes, match my shoes to my pants, etc. Personally I got a lot more use out of the concept of style essences, which can help you find out what prints and details look best on you.

No. 290992

I really like this video because it's about the parts of your body that you want to enhance and not about what's "right" or "wrong" for you to wear.

No. 290996

if you aren't really sure about your kibbe type, you can start out with implementing more classic lines. they won't be a perfect match unless you are one, but they should look fine on most women. don't let kibbe box you in of course, sure wanting to dress for your proportions is normal but don't get too autistic with it if you don't like the silhouettes suggested for you. kibbe typing doesn't really take face into account for the most part though. surely by process of elimination you can figure out which ones you definitely aren't and then can narrow in on types you fit better. You can trace a photo of yourself or post a photo to get typed.

For jeans, I think gap supposedly has a curvy line that has a smaller waist. But in general, you’re gonna have to get the waist taken in. Maybe that will add $15-20. Measure your waist where you want the pants to hit, measure your hips circumference, and measure individual thighs. Write this in a notes doc you can reference easily. Always check size charts when buying and compare to your measurements. Some brands “skew” towards being big thigh friendly and some absolutely do not. Over time, you’ll develop an intuition for which brand and styles work. Example, skinny jeans from Naked and Famous are murder on my thighs but their Max style is super relaxed and comfy without being too big on the waist.

I'm gonna buy and wear more dresses now. I'm sick of not being able to find trousers that completely fit me no matter what the price tag is since I gained a little bit of weight. I'm still skinny, but my ass and stomach are bigger now so I usually either find trousers (jeans or otherwise) that are too long for my legs, or that are the perfect length but I can't even fit my hips inside. The few pairs I have are a bit uncomfortable but the stores I bought them from are either abroad or have closed down in my country and I hate ordering shit online. Uniqlo in my country doesn't always have my size for trousers because the sizes are adjusted here for the local customers compared to Japan but I really like their dresses, they look casual and basic enough to go with any pair of shoes, jackets or accessories. And they're long and comfortable. Now I need to buy good quality stockings for this fall though.

No. 291766

if it makes you feel any better i was given a pair of doc martens for my 14th birthday and i wore them up until i was 19 (including when i worked at mcdonalds where they got heavy wear). i was going to throw them away but my younger sister took them and has continued to wear them for the past 4 years for her mcdonalds job and they’ve been fine. the soles are completely worn down and have holes in them now but that’s not bad for nearly 10 years of continuous wear. i have since bought a pair of the platform boots (but don’t wear them as often because they’re so heavy and honestly uncomfortable) and they’ve been fine, i’ve had no issues quality-wise. at the same time my friend bought a pair a few years ago and she barely wore them a few weeks before the sole of one of them fell cleanly off. i’m not sure if all manufacturing has moved overseas or if i just got lucky (or my friend unlucky).

What type did you get? The vegan leather or any metallic/glitter ones are definitely worse than the plain genuine leather ones.

Manufacturing moved to Asia nearly 20 years ago but the general consensus online seems to be that the quality has continued to decline throughout the years, so a pair made in 2018 is likely to be worse than one made in 2008 despite both being Asia-made.

Ok that sounds good enough for me, that's what I expect from my pair.

At the store I've been told by an employee that if there's a manufacturing issue I have a year long warranty on my pair. I hope I won't have to use it.

Nona, you can always deviate from what you want to emulate based on what you like. If you like the bracelet, wear it. It might look odd if you're going for a super professional look, but for a casual day-to-day look it most likely would not stick out at all no matter what you're wearing, because it looks like a pretty casual accessory if that makes sense

No. 291890

I think it's cute and it looks fine. As other anons said just keep in mind that it won't work if you're trying to look super professional/glamorous/etc., but for daily wear it's perfectly fine. Pair it with some earth tones. Find other jewellery to match if you like it enough. Unless you're going to an event with a strict dress code (like a wedding or something) nobody is going notice or care. And anyone willing to bully you over a bracelet is an asshole whose opinion doesn't matter.
I know we all love fashion ITT so it's important to all of us, but some of you seem really hung up on what other people think of your style choices. It makes me sad. I want everyone to feel confident enough to wear what they enjoy, without letting imaginary insults from strangers take bites out of their self esteem.

NTA but for daily lolita my go-to outfit is a plainer jsk or skirt (no petticoat) with a cutsew or turtleneck, lace tights, and my faux victorian boots. The boots are brown so I mostly use neutral offwhite tops and try to pick main pieces with a suitable color palette. My personally style leans more muted sweet with lots of BTSSB rather than AP pastel explosion so the colors tend to work better. I just bought another pair of those boots in black, so my color options can expand. I guess the overall look is more "otome" than lolita but it means I wear the pieces I love. My philosophy is that I enjoy what I wear and not every outfit has to be social media suitable and perfect.

No. 292083

it's not a versatile bracelet but i would definitely not think anything of anyone who wears it, i would assume it's sentimental or just something they wear routinely with no regard for how it matches (which is fine, there are tons of people who wear things that don't match EVERYTHING because they're just personal staple pieces for them for multiple reasons). i don't think anyone will judge you for your bracelet

I just wore normal coords with a smaller petti but paid more attention to fabric and details. I wore mostly cotton JSKs that have basic cuts. and avoided buying more fragile pieces with lace overlays, satin, etc. that are easily damaged. A solid set of undergarments to protect your clothes from the inside is something I recommend along with good leather boots that are suitable for walking long distances. Pick fabric accessories like wristcuffs over jewelry that tends to be fragile and get caught in stuff.

For socks I mostly wore basic OTKs with a frill or lace at the top that you can get on aliexpress and other such places, but Innocent World socks are also everything-proof in my experience. Innocent World in general has a lot of very sturdy pieces.

So today at my local thrift store, I bought a Reformation skirt for 10$. However, I'm having some trouble making sure it's 100% legit. I am following a guide online that someone wrote for their dresses. There are no misspellings on the care tag and the size tag is sewn in next to it. The fabric tag on the waistband is stitched down on the sides, which is a sign of the real deal, according to the guide. However, that's different compared to this depop listing of the same skirt, which just has one stitch at the top of the tag, as well as white thread instead of black on the care tag. Is that suspicious, or am I just reading into it too much?

Then, there's also the issue where when I bought the skirt, I hadn't properly read the tag, and didn't realize it was a size 20 when I am a 10. Is it worth having someone take it in for me? Would love some advice.

Don’t think anyone would bother making Reformation reps. All reps I’ve heard of are for designer brands and Reformation is a mall brand. You’re fine. As for whether it’s worth it to tailor, depends on how much you like the piece! If you really like it then go ahead. If you’re iffy on it then maybe donate the piece back. If you know some sewing you can try taking the waist and sides in, it’s not that hard.

Not sure if this is the right thread for this, but I’m shopping for a pair of slim black sweatpants/joggers for my nigel’s birthday. Currently it’s between the “Nike Sportswear Club Fleece Joggers” (68 dollars) which are made of 80–82% cotton/18–20% polyester
OR the lululemon City Sweat jogger (128 dollars) which are made of 52% Polyester, 42% Cotton, 6% Lycra.
OR Roots Organic Original Sweatpants (84 dollars) which are 80% organic cotton, 20% recycled polyester fleece.
I know nothing about clothing material except that polyester is not the best. Looking at the lululemon ones, they seem the worst but I really like the brand and have items from there that have lasted more than a decade with minimal damage. All the pants look more or less the same but the feel of the lulu ones is nicer than the feel of the nike ones (i went in store to check)
thoughts anyone?

No. 293725

Polyester will be warmer that cotton, I know that much. A polyester & cotton blend will be okay, it won't feel like plastic. The original sweats by Roots appear like regular sweatpants because there's not a cuff on the bottom, idk how much you care about that tho. If you're looking for regular sweatpants and are a Burger I highly suggest LA Apparel 14 oz. Heavy Fleece Pants, I have some and a hoodie of the same fabric and they are fantastic. Looking for fabric weight per yard is a good indication of how thick fabric will be (ie LA Apprel Sweats are 14oz/yd) but I looked and none of the pants you posted have that info. Those are all teally nice nonna! Personally I would go with the Lululemon because there isn't a giant stupid logo on them. Ridiculous pricing, but that's personal preference.

No. 293734

I prefer cotton to polyester and I hate polyester fleece. Personally, I would look for something 100% cotton, but that's because I feel like polyester is way too warm for my taste. It also depends on the kind of cotton they used, there are huge differences, but most companies won't tell you what cotton it is. If you own lululemon and are very happy with how they lastet and if for your taste it feels nice, I would go for them.
So, for my personal taste I would only buy 100% cotton roughened french terry (don't know if you call it that in English) for sweatpants, but I'm very biased when it comes to fabric, happens when you have to work with it, kek. If you made good experiences with one brand and feel like they are still up to that standard, go for it, honestly, nothing wrong about it and yes, it's a "lot" of polyester, but for some people it's the perfect choice and polyester comes in different forms with different purposes. And like nonna before, I hate such huge logos, after all you paid good money for that brand, you don't have to be a walking advertisement.

No. 293754

Merci so much! This is good info. Sadly not a burger but I looked at the pants and they look super cozy, love that its 98 percent US cotton. I know the lululemon has a pretty high price but I'm willing to pay more if it's good quality because he tends to buy cheap H&M shit that get ruined in like a year from wear. The Roots ones do have a big giant logo kek I was thinking about that, I don't mind them on the salt and pepper colour but it looks bad on black I think.
Side note: the wesbite for the pants says
>Our experienced sewers earn up to $25 an hour and no less than $16
Is that supposed to be good? 16 dollars an hour is nothing. I mean it's a dollar above minimum wage kek
wow thanks, its cool you're super knowledge about fabrics. I did a quick search for 100 percent cotton ones and couldn't find any. It gets cold here so I'm not too worried about them being too warm, I just don't want them to pill or get super rough after like two washes like cheap ones do.
Thank you so much nonnas, I think I'm going to just go for the lululemon ones!

16$ an hour as a sewer is a lot, in my (first world) country I would earn minimum wage in that job, that's now 12 € (around 11,50 $), before that it's been 9,50 € and we have high rents and everything got so expensive, you can't live from that kind of money. I'm a learned dressmaker and I would never earn 25$ only for sewing, kek.

Make sure to hang dry them if you don't already! It extends the longevity of clothing soooo much & you don't get pilling as easily.

No. 293875

Many apologies, but I want to piggyback off this–what sweatpant material is near immune to pilling and fairly resistant to getting stuff stuck on it that isn't a strange one (like velvet)? Is cotton really just it? I've been wanting tapered, big ones but pretty much to this day have failed. I ended up finding a brand new pair of Vuoris at the thrift store in a bout of dumb luck, though the smooth material is super prone to getting hair stuck on it, plus doesn't really retain the shape so looks baggy even if it's slim-fit.

No. 293878

I think so. If teens, who are the easiest to push trends onto and care the most about trends aren't wearing them then I'd say they're out of fashion. You can still wear them and be cute though, who cares.

The less texture, the better. Sorry I can't be of more help nonna. I'm surprised that the smooth material of the pants (?) you thrifted
are picking up a lot of hair. Make sure you vacuum a lot, too.

No. 293884

Yes and no. Yes they are out but anyone who's not a fashion victim will see that there's still plenty of women and even teen girls wearing their skinny jeans because most people can't and/or don't want to change their whole warderobe on the whims of the fashion trends.

This is the unpopular opinion but I'm not actually a big fan of cotton pieces, especially bottoms. I started switching to 100% cotton pieces when I realized how much nicer this random cotton shirt I got felt and how my other clothes suddenly felt like plastic in comparison. But after a while of wearing my new cotton purchases I noticed that I had a much tougher time getting stains out of my new pieces (turns out natural fabrics indeed stain more easily when I googled it) and my cotton jeans ripped noticeably quicker than my polyester blend jeans. So I'm personally leaning towards believing that cotton/polyester blends are actually a decent choice.

I don't own a dryer and therefore have to let it dry indoors and I put on the heating in the room the stuff hangs to dry, only solution so far, as I can't put it outside because of 24/7 smoking neighbours

sometimes it has something to with the dye they used, when it's more "on" the fabric, hair can stick to it. Fabric production and resources used is a very big area and depending on what they use and how they process things you will have different outcomes. For example you have different length of cotton fibres and the shorter the fibre, the more pilling you will get, as there are more fibre ends sticking out of the fabric. If I have the choice, I prefer pima cotton (extra long stable cotton) and if you like a silky and more "shiny" appearance, look out for mercerised cotton. When I go shopping I take a small fabric piece that always loses a lot of lint with me and go over the thing I might want to buy with it, to see how much keeps on sticking on the fabric. I also test the things I would like to buy if they lose the dye very fast with a slightly wet piece of white fabric.
Polyester just has the advantage that the person making it can decide which characteristics the fibre should have and they can make it that way. That's why most sportswear is made of polyester, it dries faster and you can equip it with stuff like "anti smell" things, etc.

Please, just post everything you like, kek.

No. 294352

the easiest rule to follow is to combine more fitted clothes w/ looser clothes, ie a baggy top and more form-fitting pants, or baggy/wide-legged pants with a tighter top. this is why her center outfit looks the least cringe (imo), cause at least it kinda has that balance that the other two lack, until you get to her goofy shoes.
the other option would be to create kind of a "shapeless" silhouette through all oversized/baggy clothes, but those are harder to give advice on. the two outfits on either side are truly hideous, and part of that has to do with how chaotic the silhouette is

No. 294586

Nta but a good pair of leather shoes/jacket/bag/whatever can last you decades (although it's very difficult to actually find that quality today). I'm not denying that leather requires SOME animal cruelty but it can minimize it when people make the deliberate choice to own no more than truly needed and take care of their belongings for decades if not a lifetime. If everyone did this down the line it'd result in the least harm to animals possible. Your fast fashion also disposes a lot of chemicals into waterways affecting animals and their habitats, just not as directly as killing a cow for it's skin, except most fast fashion lasts only a fraction of the time leather can. I'd also rather buy a bag or a pair of shoes once made by someone who's compensated fairly for what they made than repeatedly buying clothes that were made by poor girls and women under inhumane working conditions. You know they even get locked up, forced and blackmailed in those factories there to make the tshirt or shoes you buy at Zara? Funny how that never seems to be a concern for vegans who pride themselves on not having purchased a pair of boots a cow had to be killed for.

No. 294603

so meat is thrown out, you idiot? all parts of animals are used because it's wasteful to raise them just for leathers. and you didn't hear about vegetable tanning ever? which is way more enviromentally friendly than typical process using lot of harmful chemicals with heavy metals. microplastics are massive problem and PU and other shitty fake leathers are made from fucking petroleum, they last less and can flake easily. and real leather has bigger chances of degrading than plastics that can take 500 years to degrade. real leather lasts years and you won't replace leather shoes/jackets/bags as much you do with plastic crap. i don't care about fucking animals, domesticated cows and other farm animals were domesticated for human use. i guess you're one of these militant vegans who would let domesticated farm animals out just to wreck ecosystems "because muh no suffering". you probably don't care about people too, dumb cow is more important than curbing consoomerism and avoiding materials that wreck environment more. until 00s real leather was even used by fast fashion chains and some of these pieces i see listed second-hand still look decent.

I wear my stuff until it falls apart. I only sell stuff that doesn't fit anymore and I don't donate in my country as most of the stuff goes into the trash or to religious organisations. I'm in the process of making everything I wear (except for shoes and underwear) myself in the future. At the moment I only buy second hand. I've seen enough to keep on supporting brands like H&M or Zara or follow fashion trends that look ugly on most people.

that's just it, the fashion industry is one of the big factors to environmental pollution, but it's more important to be trendy than owning what you really need. The last bag I bought was cheap and made out of faux leather, after 2 years the upper layer comes apart and I can put that bag into the trash. My leather shoes I've been wearing for 5 years now, a little bit of leather care and they look like new, if I resole them in the future, I can wear them the next 5 to 10 years.
Honestly, I think it would help if people that like fashion would have to make one basic outfit themselves under the circumstances people in the country there clothes come from had to make them, guess 90% would never buy at Primark, H&M, Zara, etc again.

So I tend to do skinny fit trousers and a long loose top and boots. Or a top tucked into a maxi skirt.

I love unique clothes too. Like cool prints or mismatched buttons or more Avant Garde stuff. I thrift a lot to find unique pieces.

And I didn't mean poor people that buy that bullshit because they have not other choice, I mean people always wanting to be trendy, buying new stuff every week, spending so much money on their clothes a month that they could afford sustainable, well made pieces.

Because women are forced to participate in fashion as part of beauty standards, most beauty sites aimed at women will be relatively normie. Men who are into fashion are doing it out of choice, not obligation, which is why male fashion blogs tend to be more in-depth. Without gatekeeping, most female fashion forums will become general "what clothes wear" forums over time. If you want, start an "expensive/designer fashion" thread and state that it's for discussion of high fashion, I'm sure several nonnas will join you there.

If you're looking for a community, try /r/ffacj_discussion. It's slow but unlike /r/femalefashionadvice you won't get pilloried for wanting to buy expensive clothes. /r/expensivehumanfashion is gender neutral and mostly operates on their discord, but is much more active. PurseForum is exclusively focused on designer brands and relatively active, but it's mostly for purses and shoes, and it's a very particular aesthetic.

the-rosenrot.com has the blog of actual fashion designer with good commentary. youlookfab.com is aimed at old ladies but posts a lot of trends and pricier outfit recs. bluecollarredlipstick is a blog and an instagram of an artsy woman who posts both on fashion and interior design and the connection to art history.

i am lucky i like wearing some mens stuff here and there so i can still enjoy mens content, but i have never found any womens ones that are similar, its disappointing.

As for lolita, idk what kind of style you like, but I would consider investing in one or two pieces from a classic lolita brand like victorian maiden, maybe an op. I have picrel from victorian maiden and it can very easily be worn outside of lolita, so maybe look out for pieces like that.

I used reverse image search on anon's pic and that site was one of the first results, so I looked through it and found the skirt. It's not 100% reliable though, I tried searching for the other anon's ballet flats too but nothing turned up kek

No. 296271

It sounds like the styles you like are modest, feminine, and fun. Lolita and vintage can both be pretty overwhelming if you don't have much of a fashion sense yet, so I would recommend starting with things that are more toned down. It'll be easier to style and you'll feel more confident. I'd start out with 1 or 2 pairs of nice neutral colored shoes, some cardigans (boleros are pretty in right now and should suit your taste), and some casual dresses.

If you don't know what brands/styles you want start with, explore for a while on Pinterest/insta/TikTok. Some keywords to start with might be "twee" (not super trendy right now but whatever) "softgirl" "girly" "pastel". To make sure you don't go for inspo that's out of date, try to make sure it was posted in the last ~3 years. Also, try buying your clothes in person first. That way you can feel the fabric and make sure clothes fit you how you would like. If you're feeling spendy, a lot of department stores even have personal shoppers available.

No. 296274

I think the difference is that the skirt was a professional photo, whereas the flats seemed personally taken. It's worth it to try no matter what kind of photo it is, but just generally speaking it's easier to find professional/commercial photographs through reverse image search.

Whenever I wear pearls I tend to match the colors more than anything, so whatever goes with that off white pearl color. I also used to wear pearls more when I dressed vintage (like 40s). The fact that your necklace is made of small pearls I think makes them more versatile than normal sized pearls that look more dated and heavy. It depends on the necklace though. I think simple, minimal, clean outfits or more layered textured outfits (like mori kei) could work.

Hi nonnies, I've been looking for a jacket that's:

>not thick, plasticky, nor fleecy; I'm a huge fan of 100% cotton feel.
>oversized though also drapes nicely + is loose on the shoulder/armpit area (drop shoulder?)
>not too long

I looked in two thrift stores and the only thing that vaguely resembled what I want was a sweatshirt. I snatched it and it's the comfiest thing I've ever worn, but yeah, I still want a jacket.

Yeah I feel like a newsboy cap only works with outfits that look like they wouldn’t be out of place in 1915 London. I’ve known a couple guys to wear them and they didn’t do this, and the result was always terrible. Compare picrel to what you picture when you think of a fedora-wearer.

I think it's the fabric, pattern and accesoiries choices that can make a dress look casual. Colour-wise a jewel tone or dusty colour (whatever looks good on your skintone) would be nice.

First thing I thought, faux leather pants and heavy boots, ankle boots with these heavy platforms would look great too, they're pretty popular nowadays; so we have very similar idea here. I'd either fully tuck the shirt or french tuck it. Small leather backpack or handbag as an accessory.
Otherwise, kinda similar but less edgy because not leather, pants and shoes like picrel, shirt fully tucked, black beret maybe?

You're kind of like me. I generally don't care about what I wear too much and am not that creative and so I stick to basic pieces/neutral palettes. This has led me to wear east coast ivy league prep style clothing. It's really basic and my clothes usually consist of a sweater, jeans, loafers, basic t-shirts, and cardigans. However, this is a very costly fashion style. If you wear the wrong, cheap pieces you'll look incoherent or like a tryhard. If you overdo it (wearing pieces like tennis sweaters outside of the court), you'll look like a preppy caricature. Requires a lot of research and has a list of brands to buy from. It was simple enough for me and the research was fun. Also wear more colors that suit your skintone; this is especially easy to follow in a neutral palette. The image you attached is pretty frumpy. Make sure you have clothes that actually fit you and flatter your body.

It unironically feels rebellious to wear too amongst all the gaudy Depop type outfits people wear now.

Preppy can be either VERY casual or highly affected and can also be more cutesy and scruffy. Not kawaii or egirl cutesy, more cheeky. Think rolled up pants cuffs, patched up blazers, unbuttoned or rumpled collars, pattern mixing, worn down shoes, short hemlines, sportswear worn with more formal clothing for a high low mix. Business casual is meant to look rather boring and sexless-the most you can get away with is a loud print. While a blazer, an Oxford shirt, and a pair of loafers may be items the two styles share in common, one would wear different items or style them differently in both contexts. As much as J.

my friend wears super cute clothes, she has basically picked a "theme" for her life (a plant she likes) and bases her whole style around it, it sounds a bit silly but i really admire that and i think her whimsical vibe suits her perfectly. plus i can't imagine anyone ever has trouble finding gifts to give her lol. i also want to have a "thing" like that but i'd wanna pick 50 different things because of my commitment issues ughh (picture is just an example btw, neither of us dress anything like that but it's still cute)

do you like doing themed outfits nonnies?

No. 299999

Being obsessed with one thing to the point it translates into the clothes you wear is quite childlike in my opinion. It reminds me of little children wanting to have everything they have to be about dolphins or horses or space. But I guess it could be cute when it's someone who's a bit whimsical or eccentric.. but doing it for the sake of wanting to have a themed aesthetic like your friend is just.. no.. Your friend probably has the right, genuine energy for it to make it cute, you don't if you have to strategically, deliberately settle for something to get the aesthetic.

No. 300005

I assume picrel, in which case the fact that she chose cherries is suspect

No. 300006

I don't see it as childish but I agree with the other nona (>>299999) that it's really obvious when someone dresses this way because they're eccentric and think everything is cuter with cherries on it versus when someone is trying to emulate that.
However, the overall thing you want is achievable. What do you like so much that you would wear at least one image of it every day? If you like horses, congrats, every store on this planet sells something with a horse on it. Go nuts. If you like pangolins, you're going to spend many years slowly accumulating the odd knick-knack or piece of jewelry. Be patient.
Most importantly, be genuine, or you won't be able to stick to anything.

No. 300018

Themed outfits might be a little too cutesy. I am personally obsessed personal color analysis and kibbe so my outfits typically have a specific cut and color. If you want your look to be cohesive just narrow down what colors you like and pick some fabrics, really.

No. 300025

you're right, authenticity is the problem here. i guess i've always been "eccentric" too but i come off more like a freak and not cute/cohesive, but maybe that's ok.

as someone who does dress mono-thematically like this, it happened gradually. I like the color red and heart motifs and over time, just buying what I liked without much thought the majority of what I owned was red and/or had hearts on it kek. I think there's a good chance of you growing bored of the theme if you force yourself to buy a ton of stuff at once, and it's definitely not for everyone. tbh I wonder if it's somehow autism-related

No. 300036

I feel you nona, it's not even about picking a specific object or theme but even just a general vibe I'd like to have. I just wear too many different styles but also I feel like none of them scream "me". Like my physical traits don't lend themselves well to cute/girly outfits, but I also look weird in classy attire, and streetwear looks forced on me too.

No. 300054

stop worrying so much about which classification your style falls under, it's weird and you sound like a pathetic zoomer obsessed with having an 'aesthetic'. Just pick out stuff you like and mix and match it together and you will start to notice that you gravitate towards certain colors and patters and shapes.

No. 300059

I'm not obsessed with it, I've been living all my life dressing in various styles and I didn't mean to make it sound like a big deal. I just wish I could find a style (or even several) that actually complement me

No. 300070

maybe just pick two styles you like most so you're not stressing about it? i don't really understand why you think that your clothes don't suit you, unless you're a kibbe nerd and you're rebelling against your type or something. you don't have to dress like the same '-core' every day to be authentic, you are allowed to like different things on different days and it's not weird or trying too hard. you are also allowed to wear things that you like without worrying about whether it's the ~most flattering~ thing you could possibly wear. if you like frilly lace, just wear it.

I can guarantee that if someone saw you and the other anon out and about they would not think you dress preppy, but for the office. Obviously short mini skirts in tartan are not business cas but >my clothes usually consist of a sweater, jeans, loafers, basic t-shirts, and cardigans.

No. 300251

NTA but I agree. If an ultra defined, themed aesthetic does not come naturally to you then that just isn't you! And whatever you are already wearing is much more "you". I find it helpful to just not think when shopping. The less I worry about what's my style or how a piece fits into my wardrobe the more fun I'm having and the more interesting my fits are. I hate most online fashion spaces because they take everything so seriously. Your personal style does not need to have rigid and defined rules. I get rules for some specific subcultures like lolita, but there is no point in limiting yourself that much in daily life. Fashion is supposed to be fun!

I live in Ohio where it sometimes gets -15F in the winter. The reason the aritzia puffers are so warm & so expensive is that they use “responsibly sourced” goose down. Down is much warmer than any poly fill material could be, and it costs a lot to get down from mills that aren’t excessively torturing their birds before slaughter. Imo a good down coat is a must-have in a cold climate and is just one of those things you have to shell out some big bucks for as an investment and plan to keep in your wardrobe for years.

I know anons love Iris Van Herpen here but which big name fashion brands or houses are your favorite or the best in your opinion? I love Dior, esp when Galliano did their couture collections. Im also liking the Maria Grazia Chiuri years, but I consider Raf Simmons to have been a bust even if profits grew during that time. Picrel is a cottage core look from Galliano’s years as creative director—that tiny man was ahead of his time. I’m usually not a fan of cottage core stuff either. I also love Galliano’s usage of rococo, mod, and 1920s(?) fashion.

I remember a fuckton of detailed cute tops and blouses being sold in 2012 or so and I happened to be kind of broke then, sad. After the peter pan collars were over, there was this kind of lacy dainty era of tops with delicate ribbons and whatever. So I look forward to this resurgence, whenever it will happen.

Of course I am an adult now with more income so it shouldn't matter to me what H&M or whatever the fuck is selling. It's more how I remember looking and wanting and deciding I needed to spend my money on a pair of decent professional shoes (here I mean a pair of €60 shoes for interviews) vs. on stuff that looked pretty but might fall apart. But I have all these weird memories of finally being interested in owning pretty things and then just having to browse and turn away. They aren't even bad memories. idk how to describe it but they feel quasi-cinematic. kek sorry

nonnies, please help. I have to attend a wedding and I thought I would feel confident in a dress I had already, but I'm going through something hormonal. I have a big cyst on my ovary (next ultrasound will determine what gets done about it), and I look puffy where normally I have a slim/flat stomach. I've been working out as normal and dealing with the pain but it's driving me insane that am going to my friend's wedding and potentially looking weird or bloated.

Some of it is my BDD but I don't care, I want to look pretty and not weird. The dress isn't bodycon or anything but now I feel like I want to cover up. I will reply later with a pic because this fucking moid sitting behind me keeps gawking at my screen whenever I pull up dress, fuck him. It's a spaghetti strap dress kind of like picrel, just shorter (right above my knee) and with more chest coverage.

Is there a type of blazer I could get to make myself feel better? Not necessarily to cover the abdomen but as a mental comfort for my BDD? Or is there a universally flattering dress I can buy somewhere? Wedding is in a warm climate. Dress code is "festive" or basically whatever we want. I'm 171cm, size small but with larger chest (28 or 30E cup size). So I need to be able to wear a bra. I have a strapless bra already. I just want to look cute and confident even if my abdomen looks puffy, nonnies

Piggybacking off >>297433, careful with the color. I have a pink one and the stains don’t lift much. The material it is made of makes it naturally water resistant, but I’ve heard that you still have to be careful and gentle when washing of course. I would take mine to school and the blue sweaters I would wear left blue stains all over the back and bottom. I really hate it, and I only noticed it until it was too late. It also just has a lot of stains on the edges. That being said (I’ve also had mine for 5 years), it held up. The only thing wrong is that the zippers inside tend to fray a lot.

I miss 2010-2016 fashion because it felt unapologetically cute. It had simplicity while still having detail. I’m not even minimalist in my fashion, but I feel like lots of the fashion I see nowadays is shit flinging to see what sticks and being bored. I also feel like maybe I’m really stuck in this kind of fashion because it was something I felt I understood inside and out. I’ve seen how fashion developed after this, but I didn’t feel like I was part of it anymore. I’m glad lookbook still exists so I could look at old outfits like this and old lolita coords.

The outsole and heel, you can't see well on that image because it's on a black floor but the outsole is a black platform and then a heel has this glass look to it. Picrel is on a lighter background. Olympia Le Tan are stilettos. Toe box and heal seam on the originals are also more ballet shoe like.

There's no such thing as durable clothing that's easy to maintain. If you don't take good care of your stuff, it falls apart. I have many fast fashion items that I have owned and worn for 10 years. These days most expensive brand clothing and cheap brand clothing use similar quality of material, and although the QC and finishing is usually better on more expensive brands, if you can tell when something is cut wrong or seams are crooked, etc, there's not much difference. IF you go out looking for any one basic item, like a plain white collared shirt, you will notice that there's absolutely no difference in trendiness/fabric quality/cut quality between a $400 shirt from Nordstrom and a $20 shirt from H&M.

Minimizer bras exist(they push away and compress your boobs, like a sports bra) but the best minimizing bra will be any unlined seamed bra that fits you correctly and provides enough support. Have you been fitted right? If not check r/abrathatfits. Their calculator was a game changer for me.

Oh I realized I didn't explain why minimizers don't work. They flatten your boobs from the front, spreading them out over more surface area and widening your entire torso in the process. A good unpadded bra with support pushes your boobs more to the front and upwards and creates a slimming effect.

Same here nona. I feel like i look half a foot shorter and 20 pounds heavier in jeans that aren’t skinny or at least slim leg. Love the look on women who are super tall but not for my average height self. Plus, it’s so much easier to wear boots with skinny jeans and you never have to worry about the hems getting gross in wet/snowy weather. My skinny jeans are not going anywhere, zoomers be damned.

No. 309591

Pay attention to seams. How is the stitching? Are there any loose threads? Are the seams reinforced? If there’s a pattern, did they match up the pattern? Seams are a good indicator of quality.

Design warning signs to look out for: drawstrings, non-functional pockets or buttons, exposed zippers, sheer and flimsy fabric, tops that only have a pattern on one side, unlined dresses/jackets/skirts. While these are not always indicative of poor quality and can sometimes be stylistic choices, they tend to show that the designer cut corners.

I've started dressing like that again sometimes for uni because I enjoy sleeping in. I don't think we have to follow every zoomer fashion rule, following the rules won't make us any younger honestly. I'd say go for it if you like skinny jeans, life's too short to not do the things we enjoy.

No. 311561

Kind of. Might be different for you, but sometimes I see something that I superficially like or a style that I think looks cool, so I screenshot it to look at a little while later and then realize that it looks kinda juvenile or impractical and I wouldn't really have a setting in which I could wear it, so I end up ditching the idea of looking for it.

Maybe you’re using clothing as a way to reinvent yourself or not be bored instead of confronting your real issues, so you keep getting into a cycle of trying to buy a new identity and then getting bored with it because you realize it isn’t fulfilling .

I've considered getting one or two of these shirts since they look easy to style with what I already wear often, being white or light colored shirts, black pants, boots, casual jewelry and sometimes a hat. Dunno if there's a point in going into the specifics. I already own button down shirts in both white and black, and I wonder if a sleeveless one would look cute when the weather gets hotter, but when I looked to see if I wanted to buy one, most of them seemed rather thin and poorly fitted, so I decided not to buy any, since it would just look baggy and sloppy rather than cute and casual. Has anyone made these work? I like wearing white button downs with black pants because of the versatility, and I wonder if I'm honestly just being autistic about this and there's no point in even fussing over something so minuscule when I already noted that most of them seem poorly fitted or of low quality material.

No. 311775

All white collared shirts for women are made of tissue paper instead of fabric. Most aren't even finished anymore, it's just a big square box with holes for your arms and head.

You should go for cuts that flatter a bigger chest, like v-necks and wrap tops. Personally, I like turtlenecks but I know that's controversial kek. I prefer tops to be tight, to accentuate my waist and avoid the frumpy look. Also, avoid very heavy fabrics, heavy chunky knits, structured shirts etc. Flowy, thinner fabrics drape better imo. Look for shirts/dresses with darts that help create a nice silhouette in the chest. Avoid detailing around the chest and neckline, like pockets, frills etc. Maybe vidrel will be useful to you.

Does anyone else find it super annoying how styling tutorials are almost always about fighting against what you naturally have?
Like if you have large boobs, stylists tell you wear this to make them look smaller, if you have small breasts they tell you what to wear to make them look bigger etc. Same with makeup, it’s usually all about trying to create the illusion of the opposite of what you naturally have.
I even see stylists and makeup artists trying to ‘correct’ features that are desirable a lot of the time. It’s really irritating.

oh definitely. I have a pear body type and I only see shit about "making yourself look more like an hourglass" bitch i don't want that ? I like my body shape ? If anything I'm trying to find what's gonna make it look best, not trying to hide it… it's so annoying. Not saying that all advice like that is bad, there definitely are things that make some shapes look better but it gets seriously sad when it's constantly suggesting you hide anything that isn't hourglass

No. 311875

It depends on how large your bust actually is and your overall silhouette and build.

Commonly given advice like "minimal details in the chest area" might not work for a tall, wide shouldered woman with a more dramatic inverted triangle body type for example, I am something like a 30I with this body shape and it looks better if I go for a 80s type silhouette and proportionally large details that will fill the wide surface, rather than small things that will make me look comically wide due to disproportion.

If you are a more "common" kind of busty with an all over balanced body shape see >>311869 and also, V-necks and wrap tops are indeed solid advice for every body type. My own personal controversial piece of advice is keyhole/boob window tops (if you have a good bra there won't be too much cleavage) they look elegant if you pick a color like wine red or beige in a ribbed knit and wear them with pants, and another thing I rarely see recommended is getting a good quality denim top that can hold your breasts by itself, it's good for summer.

Same feeling. I love being dorito-shaped, I don't want advice on how to look more like a regular potato chip

Try manually bending the sole and wearing it in so that your foot/ankle has less work to do. Getting the bottom of the shoe to bend easily is key to breaking in shoes.

No. 311891

This doesn't make sense. You can break in plastics and coated leathers, it just won't be as quick or comfortable as a natural leather. You really think a coated leather shoe or a plastic shoe NEVER breaks in? Materials are going to bend and wear with use.

No. 311894

Plastic and plastic coated materials don't break in like leather. Leather literally molds to your feet, softens, changes shape, and stretches. Yeah they'll 'bend' and wear out with time but that won't make them any more comfortable.

It's not just the waist that would be an issue though. I either find pairs that fit me when it comes to the waist but that are way too long AND large for my legs, or it fits for my legs but I can't even actually wear it because my ass can't fit inside at all. I think if I were to buy a pair of jeans in that situation I would have to change too many things for it to actually look good on me. I thought about just buying pairs that are a bit too long and just make them a bit shorter but they would still look bad on me for other reasons.

> By the way, Zara and Mango have pretty okay jeans
It's been years since I went to Mango, I should check the store nearby because the last time I went there I had a much smaller budget and I was too skinny to wear anything from there. As for Zara, I hate it. I feel like I can't find basics because of how often they change their collections, everytime I find good things there it's a coincidence. Last time I went there a few weeks ago I only bought two tops because all the pairs of jeans I found looked like pic related at the ankles and there's no way in hell I'm wearing this at my job.

Mostly so it’d be easier to look up stuff on Depop and stuff like that. In-person it wouldn’t matter, but when buying online/using an app it’s easier to search the brand so I don’t have to filter through a bunch of stuff that’s not my style. And I have a hard time describing what I’m looking for so having the brand name would help when I’m searching online.

Wear dresses and heels. I recently discovered that there are casual dresses you can just throw on and go, it looks classy and it's less work than choosing pants and a shirt.

I like dresses that have stretchy tops. If you have large breasts and a small waist I suggest LuLaRoe, all their stuff is surprisingly comfy and looks good on hourglass shapes.

I’ve come to realize I hate pretty much all modern western clothing and cuts. I wish it was socially acceptable and practical to wear traditional historical clothing from whatever culture you want, it’s just so much more beautiful whether eastern or western.

I also wish it was easier to find pure silk versions instead of just polyester larp garb.

You could create similar outfits with modern clothes, maybe found in second hand shops. Like, get a silk cami or strap dress, then layer a kimono-style dress over it and wear with a belt. Lots of people are done with modern fashion, look up history bounding.

Yes. Their clothes are:
-dirt cheap (you can find them for less than 20 dollars online easily and they flood thrift stores)

-stretchy (super great if you have boobs that deform most dresses)

and best of all, the "Amelia" style of dress has pockets.

Because all the saleswomen are middle aged uggos who don't know how to accessorize. Like the other anon said, this brand is a pyramid scheme. Sadly most pictures of the clothes reflect that.

Nonnas, I need some guidance. I live in the south and my childhood friend is getting married this summer!
We chose what we wear, its a causal comfy wedding more so than traditional. What should I wear? Ive lost 75 lbs and just dont understand my body or how to look classy and dressed up.
>what fabric should i wear to avoid sweat stains?
>i am big chested and tall, whats considered appropriate length?
>can I get away with boots ? I know thats stupid, but i hate heels and usually think flats only accentuate my wide ass feet
>how early should i reach out to a tailor for the dress?
And also,
Anyone recommend men style blogs/ stores? My bf has also lost so much weight and he avoids shopping at all cost. Should we just rent a suit?

I have these two ideas for you, the pink dress is cute, I honestly think it's better to look overdressed than underdressed.
I don't know about sweating tbh, just wear a really strong deodorant and take any pictures with your arms up before the party begins, then check yourself out in the bathroom from time to time if you're very self conscious about it, maybe keep some wet wipes and napkins around to clean yourself throughout the party.
I think these two dresses are nice, I'm also looking for ideas with pants, I will post them later.
These dresses are fancy but classy, the length of both are nice, not too long, not too short. And you could wear boots with them as long as they're not straight up frumpy combat boots with wear and tear.
You could wear some nice, simple tights with some really nice boots, I will post examples of nice boots just in case.

Samefag, I prefer these sorts of boots because they're slick, they also don't have ridiculous needle-like heels so you can walk around, specially if the place has grass, I absolutely hate stiletto heels at garden/beach parties, not only on myself but on other women because they look ridiculous, they sink in the dirt and then they get all dirty.

Advice on mixing styles? I keep wanting to change my style from hippie-ish to folk inspired and back/forth. I love both but folk clothing and accessories are usually quite expensive because of the age so I can't just go out and buy a whole folk wardrobe much as I wish I could. What is a cheap way to mix in style X with style Y without having it look strange/out of place? I will say I'm lucky in the regard that my normal style goes fairly well with folk elements because they have similarities (lots of flowers/similar patterns/fringes and embroidery, fairly similar silhouettes in the sense of being quite loose).

No. 313263

My general rule of thumb is:
Similar motifs and patterns
cohesive metal tones
cohesive colour scheme

This is great advice. I'd also personally try to stick with only one "loud"/statement piece of clothing or accessory, so it doesn't look like the styles are trying to dominate each other.

No. 313325

Voriagh, Little Women Atelier, Linennaive, Kaneko… Most of these type of brands are expensive though.

If you don't mind synthetic fabrics you can probably find fancy stuff on Taobao as some chinese lolita brands such as Miss Point and Foxtrot also sell more subdued vintage inspired pieces. If you have a lower budget, browse secondhand fashion sites for vintage pieces (lots of pieces with 30s-40s vibes that are actually from the 80s and therefore cheap, also look for brands that sell dirndl, they sometimes carry more unconspicous long skirts/dresses made of plain linen and some nice blouses). Pinup brands like Hell Bunny, Collectif, Banned etc. sometimes sell suitable pieces as well, especially around fall when they pull out the tartans and all that, and you can find them secondhand for decent prices.

I'm still building the wardrobe but here's a inspo post. And I can't really say how I came up with this 'Mari Lywd goes grunge' other than I have a very vivid imagination and this idea gave me the giggles for a week.
I'm going to focus on texture, dyes, customizations and high quality statement items. Unusual fabrics for structured items like over sized leather blazers, iridescent two-toned velvet dresses that hug and amplify everything. Prints don't matter as long as the colours match; gold jewellery shaped like coins, hardware & figa hand charms. Whatever you think you'd discover in a welsh bog, I want to wear as an accessory or in my wavy hair.

I still wear whatever I like around the house & gym but I'm moving away from lolita and want to keep some fun/whimsies to my everyday dressing in the form of an annoying pun-telling horse ghost that doesn't know when it's not welcome.

No. 313874

I'm not sure if I've been depressed tbh, but whenever I have too many intrusive thoughts I go for the safest options, it's always good to keep some blouses or button up shirts around, loose ones with neutral colors or with colors that you really really like, so you can put on some denim pants and any shoes, preferably something like flats or moccasins even.
Whenever I feel sad I try to look as decent as possible so I can make myself feel better, as in wearing clean clothes that kind of match each other.
So yeah, don't go all black, try to add some colors or patterns, like maybe an animal print sweater or with flowers, get some funny socks, try to match your hair accessories with your clothes and glasses, being all matchy matchy with your stuff is a good way to lift your spirits because then, when you look at yourself, even if you're wearing some frumpy pajamas, you will feel like you're at least somewhat trying.
And you may not think it's important but it's actually important to have underwear that doesn't have any holes or random bleach spots, having clean and neat underwear is nice, you don't need to wear shit with lace and sheer parts, just having some cotton underwear that's clean, doesn't have any holes, fits you nicely as in it isn't too tight or too lose and matches even if they're not from the same brand/store, feels great.
So start from the smallest stuff, like your underwear and hair accessories that you use to keep your hair out of your face, match your home slippers, your socks and such, doing so can make you feel better because you will feel like not everything is out of control.
And make sure all of your clothes are okay, if they have random holes that shouldn't be there, damaged patterns and such, then you will have to donate those, if they're too tight or too lose, donate those as well and get new stuff that fits or maybe learn how to recycle your old clothes or even sell them.
Cleaning up your closet and making it all matching and "limited" helps a lot with keeping everything organized but it also helps with making yourself look more sharp I guess.
I'm rambling but that's just what I tend to do so I feel better, I hope this works.

Depends on which country the brand is from. If the country is somewhere obesity is common, the sizing will be bigger and it has more to do with buyers being fat/tall rather than vanity sizing.
For example, Asian brands have super small sizing while American brands have much bigger sizing because the average Asian and American women obviously have different bone and body structure along with weight and height difference.
Your best bet is to find a brand that's fitting to your bodytype and get the pieces tailored to fit even better.

Hello guys

Is anyone here who sews, stitches, does embroidery and/or even make their own fashion pieces interested in starting a discord server or a subreddit where we can share and give/get advice and critism for the pieces we make. But also appreciate/ critique design, art and literature and it’s many movements.

I’ve been looking for a (not necessarily fashion but a) design community that are mostly made up of art students or ppl who work in the industry that can healthily and not just brand addict s or people who shame other for their tastes and also give and receive advice (that are mainly women). I looked on Reddit but to my dismay found only the r/womenswear and threads similar to it that are just basic outfit piecing threads and r/EHF that is conveniently problematic and subsequently a ultra private community

I’m a graphic design (soon transitioning to product design) student myself who’s recently got deep into fashion and hoping to make a couple of pieces for a large project that I’m doing that isn’t solely fashion, since I don’t really have many friends that do design and willing to do it at uni i thought to turn here as a lot of the people are pretty nice and mature!

If enough people respond I’ll try and make either a subreddit or discord server!!

Would these look awkward with any particular styles or pants? I plan to get them for the versatility, though they are a bit of a chunkier and rugged look than usual so I'm not sure if I'm in over my head. Asking as someone who has had a history of horribly mismatching shoes with clothes and I don't want to default to only wearing jeans with them to play it safe.

No. 315341

my thought is that if you want them for the versatility, these are a bit heavy for when it's nice and warm during spring and summer so that immediately cuts of a large part of the year. Unless you live in a year round climate I suppose

You can try ironing on some of these denim patches inside the garment or if you sew, use scrap fabric and sew the shit out of it inside the pants (look it up for instructions). This is only semi-related but maybe it will help someone- If you have the issue of shorts riding up your crotch area when walking, you can sew a strip of fabric along the length of the crotch and it will eliminate the issue. I can't seem to find a pic of what I mean but there are also products- google "polyester boning for shorts". Actually, come to think of it, you could also use the denim iron on patches for this purpose as well.

I like the boots and the dress together. I'm getting Stevie Nicks vibes. I don't really like the gold with the cool-toned colors dress though, but I really, really dislike anything gold. I think it could be cute with a crochet hippie vest and tons of matching gold bracelets, bangles, maybe even a little chain belt? Like a maximalist bohemian look. I have no idea what your preferred style is though. Along that same vein, a cute kind of bag could be something suede with fringe (the different textures of the bag and boots could be neat), or maybe a white hand-tooled leather bag with gold hardware? Not sure how you feel about mixing metal colors but a silver bag might look nice? Not sure about that though. If you want an extremely elevated look, picrel could be nice. I like how it plays off of the crescent shape of the boot jewelry.

thank you everyone for your advice and I'm mortified to realise that of course gold doesn't go with cold tones, I'm gonna take the jewelery off them.

i tuck in the straps into the bra (strapless bras options are the wrong shape for me and I'm done trying new ones) or wear bra-sized multi way bikini top and make it strapless. if the armholes are low then i wear either a matching tube top to the dress/top or one that is close to my skin tone. low backs/lace or mesh backs are not possible, so if I am wearing one i just make whatever im wearing look like it's supposed to be part of the outfit.
and I want to mention that the bra band does 90% of the support, so if you are wearing bras where you think you need to have the straps support you, and are thinking you cannot tuck the straps into your cups, you are wearing the wrong size and need to size down in band an up in cup.

I've been thinking of somewhat changing my style (which is not really cohesive anyway), but I'm facing a personal morals dilemma. I have a lot of clothing and it's good quality but I don't feel like all of it reflects me anymore. Many things were bought by my mom and while she has a good fashion sense, I wish the clothing was more outlandish and edgier and reflected my personality more. I care about being low-waste, consuming less, and being thankful of the things I have, so I don't really wanna shop for new pieces. Even though I'm excited about altering some clothing to suit changing styles, it also feels like a burden because I am very swamped with work and with my schedule altering all the pieces I want to change will take a long time. Not everything can be altered to suit my changing tastes, either. Picrel is sort of what I want to transition towards: I want to express my alternative side more with modest/draped clothing but still maintain my love for feminine and romantic fabrics. It seems like it would be hard to change some of my clothing into looser styles. Lots of pieces are 2016-18-ish, if you can imagine the sorts of cuts that were popular then.

Does anyone have any thoughts f helpful advice for changing styles while working with what you have and buying less?

Can anyone link me to a good quiz/analysis to find my seasonal color? I've been looking for a while but a lot of them are super gimmicky or ask me for me for my email. Pls help!

No. 317595

>a lot of them are super gimmicky
Because it's a pseudo science, so it's by default gimmicky in the first place, as is Kibbe. Moralfagging aside, if you're really into it you could take an irl appointement with a color analyst, here they're called "image consultants", sure it's not free but it's better than the usual shitty quizzes

No. 317604

It's not pseudo science because it doesn't present itself as science. I'm not saying it 100% works as presented online but cmon everyone has colors that better suit their skin tone, undertones, depth etc.

No. 317611

Eh it's just colour theory. Going by your logic anything they teach in art school about colour theory is pseudo science. Also >>317595 is right, it doesn't present itself as a science.

The only thing I'll say I think it's subjective and trend-sensitive to a degree. Sometimes we think gold and silver (warm and cold) look great together and sometimes we think it looks horrible together, for example.

I really hope cargo pants don't go out of style. I know they've been in for a long time, but I'm worried it'll go back to skinny low rise jeans which doesn't suit my legs AT ALL.

Vent: I feel like regardless of my efforts I always manage to come off as frumpy. I try to dress preppy-ish, so Oxford shirts, mary janes, colorful scarfs, a-line skirts and in theory I always feel like my outfits are supposed to work but there is always, ALWAYS something off and I don't know what it is. Like today while I was dressing up I thought I'd look great but then I looked into the mirror and I looked like a 40's librarian. My boyfriend also made a comment that 'I dress like a conservative schoolteacher' and he added that he really likes it but somehow made me feel bad because that is not the vibe I'm going for. I'm starting to think that the styles I like simply don't translate well onto my body or something

No. 318291

That does sound frumpy, sorry anon. There's a fine line with vintage preppy styles and looking like a librarian. Nothing wrong with that imo but if that's not something you want to project, maybe try changing your silhouette. More form fitting clothing, shorter skirts or skorts, modern elements, more accessories, makeup or a different hair style could all help. It's hard to say without seeing your closet.

Maybe you could try to go more posh/modern with it? Try some different oxford cuts something like picrel, try some above the knee a-line skirts, etc. What accessories do you wear aside from colorful scarves? Maybe your look looks a bit too dated, what do you do with your hair? Sometimes if an outfit looks older your hair can really throw off the vibes.

No. 318302

maybe you're using too many accessories or novel elements and it comes off as excessive. The scarfs specifically, try your outfits without them. Do your shirts fit you well, do you have a larger bust?

It's entirely possible those types of cuts just don't work for your body type full stop honestly.

Bit early but what are some nice and comfortable summer shoes or sandals that I can pair with long skirts? I usually just wear boots with them because I hate sneakers with skirts but it's way too hot for the summer.

I'm probably going to be known as the gaudy consultant but I don't care.

No. 319611


A good rule is that you should show off either your top half or your bottom half, to avoid looking grumpy in these style. So if you have an a line or swing skirt, pair with a tighter turtleneck or a form fitting blouse/sleeveless button up/nice v neck t shirt. If you have a shirt and a baggier sweater vest up top, wear some skinny-type trousers and a nice belt and maybe french tuck it if you wanna show the navel area of the trousers. Mary Janes are great for this look BUT they can look a bit clompy and librarian with some outfits, so I'd consider getting some boots/shoes with a slight heel (1-2 inches) to elevate the outfits that seem a bit too frumpy. Also yeah, scarves can make or break an outfit because they are so associated with fat grumpy teachers and librarians. Look on Pinterest for inspo nonna, you got this

i found this brand unlogical poem through pinterest and now im sad because 1) im a poorfag who cant afford nice clothes and 2) most of their stuff runs in tiny sizes anyway

off topic but looking for unique clothing online from small independent brands has made me realise that anyone can have an interesting and 'unique' sense of style if they just throw enough money at it. if i had the skills for it id start making my own clothes for sure

No. 320005

>i had the skills for it id start making my own clothes for sure
No one starts out having the skills to make clothes.. so why not learn? Plenty of free resources on the internet. A pencil skirt like in picrel is one of the most basic, easiest garments. You could be making and wearing some of your own clothes relatively quickly.

id like to learn sewing. its just,.idk. i can sew enough to fix holes in my clothes but i do such a piss poor job of even that that i think investing in fabric to try to follow a simple pattern would be a total waste of money and time. clothes making seems to require a lot of space, time and money to initially invest in materials, and then a hell of a lot of patience on top of that. i like to think that when i have a bit more of everything to invest in resources i could maybe think about making a simple garment, though

Thrift your fabric and hardware. All you really need to buy new are needles, thread, and bias tape.
Sewing machines are easy to find secondhand too because of how many old ladies die and don't have children that can sew. Also don't bother buying patterns full price. Wait for sales or look for them free online (Mood has a bunch).

No. 320337

Sewing can be relatively affordable if you're willing to be thrifty. When I started out sewing I practiced on old duvet covers people gave to me or purchased at the thrift store for 2 or 3 euro and even today I have garments made from thrifted fabric, threads, patterns and zippers. If you live in a city you probably have fabric markets where you can get ugly polyester fabric for almost nothing but that's good enough to practice on. As far as a machine and basic supplies goes, almost everyone has a woman in their family who has a sewing machine you could lend or alternatively you could hand sew if you really, really don't want to or can't get your hands on a (cheap) sewing machine.

Space wise you don't need more than a table to work on and space to store a sewing machine, a few basic supplies and a bit of fabric. You don't have to hoard tons of fabric and supplies like you see seamstresses online do. So yeah it's true it requires a bit of space (but nothing major) and it's true that it's time consuming, but that's true for a boatload of hobbies. Hobbies don't have to be time efficient, you're not working for a boss. Anyway, at the end of the day it was just a suggestion. Do with it what you will.

Okay so I'm a huge autist when it comes to fashion and I'm going to participate in a big student show/event soon, where I've basically been told I should wear black if possible. I have a plain black button up shirt, but no completely black trousers (I don't have any skirts or dresses). Closest thing I have is a pair of loose trousers with a dark green check/tartan pattern (similar to picrel except wider and the pattern is more discreet). Do you nonnas think that would be appropriate/fancy enough for a big occasion, paired with that black shirt ? Or should I look into borrowing plain black pants ?

I'd try borrowing someone's black jeans or skirt honestly. I suppose it's entirely possible the dress code isn't that serious and plenty of people will show up in different colours but if you're the only one who's not entirely in black that's gonna suck a bit. But you're the better judge.

No. 320484

Definitely borrow them, I'm sure they would look nice but you don't want to be the only one dressed in the wrong colours. Tbh unless you're seriously strapped for cash you should consider getting some black pants… They're basic staples and are often the dress code for things. I've had plenty of jobs where the only rule is to wear black pants and they supply a uniform top, for example.

I started wearing trench coats and cute hair scarves Audrey Hepburn-style and suddenly I get many compliments. The truth is I wear the scarves to hide my shitty hair kek and I'm tired of trying to make it look better when it's obvious I can't improve it past a certain point. I always thought scarves wouldn't serve my face but they actually fit me so if you hate wind and you have shitty hair like me and you can bullshit your way into looking nice I highly recommend to try it out.

The VSCO girl aesthetic is what I would say is very outdated. It’s very 2019-2020. I don’t think anyone uses that term anymore even. Pic related is VSCO girl. Coconut girl has more y2k influences, it’s supposed to imitate the colorful and kitschy nature of our childhood summers in the 2000s.
