Pic: Womenswear designer Louise Clark.

I recently fell in love with the threadpic designer and wanted to share her with all of you to highlight some women designers. This (and picrel) comes from Louise Clark's "Abstract Romanticism" collection. She is a UK-based designer who I sincerely hope gets the recognition she deserves! I think she's working for ASOS now, but in the future I hope she gets to make more collections. I love her feminine and modern silhouettes.

Is there a name for this type of bag? I like purses with short top handles, crossbody straps, and most importantly: top zop opening into abyss which holds a lot more than you'd think.

What would you call the dress/style of dress Else is wearing in this photo? I would like to find an image of the actual historical equivalent (not aliexpress).

What would you pair this skirt with?
I owned a skirt like this back in the y2k era as a 11 yr old, kek. Is it making a comeback?
If you do wear it, i would get textured tights, boots, and a longer sleeved top. But, really, its not that great of a option for women of age. Preteen fashion on adults is usually cringe.

What everyday shoes do nonnas wear? I have heels for dressy occasions and sneakers for everyday but somedays I want something in between that's still comfortable to walk in. I find most heel-sandals pretty hard to walk long distances in, are there any that are pretty comfortable? Do I just find some fancy sandals?Picrel is an idea of outfits I wear in the summer
Nta but that skirt looks like a piece of clothing a middle schooler who can't dress herself would pick. If you're a literal woman, wearing that type of shit makes you look trashy and weird. Same as a 18+ yo dude wearing an anime shirt, it's cringy on a child but it's even worse on an adult.>>327242
Second one is actually cute, anon should go for something like that.

I have the bottom bag too! Fossil Sydney Satchel, right? I LOVE mine in hunter green from a few years ago but I recently bought one in black and the quality is literally half or less of the green one. What gives? Is the black one maybe an outlet version or something? This is what prompted me to ask about the name of this type of bag- I was looking for a better alternative to the Sydney & "satchel" was conjuring a lot of structured school/work-type satchels (which are super cute but I love slouchy leather). I also really wish the black and the hunter green Sydney came with silver-toned hardware but alas… What color do you have it in nonna? Side note I love how far down the zipper goes on the sides, it's so easy to find stuff in the abyss because it opens SO wide. >>326720>Boston bag
THANK YOU! I just purchased exactly what I was looking for using this term. You rock!! Picrel is the bag (not my pic). The brand is HESHE on Amazon.
Zillenial here, born in 1998. My clothes feel outdated, and I’m really loving the casual “zoomer style”, especially the more relaxed office looks. I feel lost. While I love the new fashion trends, I have no idea what staples to buy or how to style the new shit. I’m used to wearing dresses with tights, loafers and blazers, but I’m looking for sneakers, dresses, pants etc. that don’t feel outdated, and trying to figure out how to style crop tops correctly
Can someone help me? What staple Gen z pieces should I buy, and how should I style them?
i'd prefer to dress like you do now than a fashion victim

i recently got a dress similar to picrel but nicer at a thrift store and its too tight on my chest and i cant button the last 3 buttons, is it retarded to wear something under it or should i just redonate it? its from an expensive italian brand too so i'd be sad giving it away but what's the point if i can't even wear it kek.
This only looks cute on petite and/or very thin girls, on everyone else it looks off. I don't think it's cute though. It would've been okay without the bib.>>327701
If it's obvious you're keeping it unbuttoned because it's too tight you should give it away, otherwise a white tank top is fine.

Does anyone recognize exactly what Charlotte is wearing on her head in this pic? It looks too soft and stretchy to be a cotton bandana. I need stuff to cover my hair on lazy days besides basic bandanas. I wish I could pull off a head wrap but it looks stupid on me no matter what I try. I cringe thinking about the time I wore one outside my house a while ago.

Checked out Only and the clothes look so nice, I can't believe I haven't heard of them before! The only thing I'm worried about is their reviews look quite mixed, especially in the UK (where I am) for returns and orders not arriving. Have you tried their pants or just shirts? I like picrel but I'm extra cautious buying pants online, especially considering the reviews.>>327878
COS looks really great! Their T-shirts are the exact fit and colours I'm looking for as well, if a bit pricey but they look good quality. Reviews on customer service look mixed but reviews on the clothes say they're good, plus there's a physical store not far from me! I'll go next time I get paid.
I've bought from Uniqlo before and still love what I have but I've heard that they've gone down in quality recently, when did you buy from them nona?
Thank you all for your recommendations! If I buy from any I'll check back in with a review.

I need some help finding websites that ship in the US that sell clothes that will fit a busty woman, I have a figure similar to picrel and I am constantly wearing baggy trashbags cause I can't find anything that is cute but fits a large bust without being baggy everywhere else. I do like the tradthot flower dresses that are in fashion currently, pls no bully. I want to look cute for once this summer instead of wearing XXL sweaters and baggy t-shirts all day.

Came back to say I returned this. For context, my most used bags are a Fossil leather bag, a canvas messenger bag, and a nylon Kate Spade bag. The quality of this purse was decent but it was too big for my small frame, and I noticed in one of the reviews, someone posted that the black top layer of the leather wore off after a year. What the fuck. So I went to Etsy where I can get a beautiful custom leather bag for under $180, I feel like I discovered a lifehack. >>327765
Also this was me and I went to Etsy for this also and bought a gorgeous hand-dyed cotton bandana with these colors to recreate this look.
No one asked but here I am kek

As in, cheaper leather pieces which will be cut and sewn to my specifications? That doesn't sound terrible tbh because the Etsy leather (bottom picrel) looks nicer than the Amazon leather (top picrel) and I will get a custom size (and engraving). However I am realizing right now that I actually have no idea how to tell if leather is shitty, unless it's obviously pleather or really thin. I purchased a leather planner cover made by a Chinese guy on Etsy that definitely isn't plastic-coated leather, it seems pretty nice and like it'll last. The handbag I'm looking at (similar to bottom picrel) looks like the same kind of leather. I'll be looking into it myself, but do you have any characteristics I should look out for in quality leather? Does the Etsy bag leather look crappy to you? Thanks in advance anyone reading this

Leather anons itt have been very helpful already but if someone can offer specific assistance it'd be appreciated, am looking to invest in a sturdy leather jacket but I don't like 80s cuts (too unisex and boxy) so vintage is off the table unfortunately. A lot of the modern ones are lined with polyester too which seems to cheapen them and would maybe be gross/sweaty? From reading online many people recommend Allsaints, anybody have other recs? I understand good jackets can run $2,000+ but I don't want a rag that's going to flake and fall apart in a year. Picrel is the kind of silhouette I'm going for.

If we're being brutally honest, is it okay and not cringe for a 22 yr old to buy trendy clothes? I know some trends are worn mostly by kids and teenagers, but there's some I really like, like baggy jeans, plaid skirts, and corset tops. Is that cringe for a grown adult with a job and a kid (me) to do?
holy fuck get some common sense, please. These trends are literally aimed at your demographic. Ban me for formatting, these posts piss me off.

What do you guys think of dungarees? I think they're so cute, comfy, and casual. There's so many ways to style them. Dungaree dresses are so so cute as well.

Love them, I want black shorts ones for summer
To be fair it is very confusing. You go from>omg you're 23 you're still a baby!
to>ew you're 30 lol that isn't for you, go wear a muumuu and pop out some kids you hag, tick tock
There isn't that much time in between those two ages. People (at least online) talk about under-25s like they're still in their diapers and teething, but young women over 25 already "look pretty good for their age". Make it make sense.
File: 1684952336385.png (2.89 MB, 1976x1350, vintage.png)
late response but there's a lot of fashion from the 50s that isn't your stereotypical "pin-up reddit polyamory-core" with bold tacky patterns and hoop skirts. I tend to dress a bit more androgynously with pants that fit round the waist but are looser around the leg. Pair them with neutral blouses, sweater vests, coats, etc, I'd just stick to colours that suit you but in plain tones or less gaudy patterns.
Shoes wise you can opt for heels, flats or loafers.
If you dress a bit more feminine pencil skirts are a great option that you can pair with the same blouses. The key to looking most authentic to the decade is through choosing items of clothing that are the desired shape. If you look at shapes from that area you'll notice distinct ways the body is flattered and curved. Picrel is some examples I pulled off pinterest, both from the era and more modern looks that suit the decade.

These types. They're just chunky sneakers but they're so comfortable. They got the nickname because before zillennials decided they were cool only your dad would wear them. (Because they're comfy as shit if you buy the right pair)

How do I style this skirt for A. family gathering and B. The mall with friends? What jacket should I wear with it if I get cold?
I'm buying it at the end of the month but honestly I don't know how to style it for the 2 occasions. Fashion wise nonnas please help!
fitted long sleeve shirt in neutral tones. cute skirt btw. Ah, I can see this looking nice with some lace grey stockings too.
i am not a fashion expert though, I was once mistaken for a homeless girl and people brought me food. But this doesn't look hard to pull off.
If but this in a more versatile color if i could. Brown is hard to style imo.
Don't listen to >>330712
wear sheer stockings if you really have to. Weird colors of stockings usually look childish imo.
File: 1685062113757.jpg (176.33 KB, 1000x1500, 00444295-01.jpg)
sheer doesn't hide much. why risk showing the scars with over-the-knee sheers when you could get 60-80 denier tights and enjoy skirts worry-free? you can also get flesh-toned opaque tights and layer thigh highs of your choice over them (might get a little hot though).
a sheer with a pattern can work well and would be cooler in hot weather. I had picrel for a long time and something about the zig-zag hid all my body hair and any veins or scars but it was practically sheer. chevron pattern sheers are also nice.

what kind of jacket would you style with this? i love this dress but i feel so exposed in it. i'm wearing it with white socks/babydoll shoes. i tried a flannel but it looked eh
File: 1685112186064.jpeg (58.16 KB, 900x1198, lbd.jpeg)
I think what you want to do is wear a white tee under it, short or long sleeve doesn't matter. not my style but it would go with what you have already.
If it was me I'd be wearing an enormous shawl or cardigan (like swimming in it) and black sheer tights with booties.
most people simply haven't met enough genderspecials to have a frame of reference for what they dress like so i wouldn't worry about it. unless you live in a super
liberal city like me.
Start slowly, perhaps start with just simple but dainty jewelry like earrings, necklaces, and bracelets. Also maybe grow your hair out because it's really difficult and rare to look feminine/pretty with short hair, especially since you have to wear glasses too.
You need to let your eyes adjust to your new feminine, cute style, so don't rush into it and replace your entire closet. Buy one or two things a month like a dress here, a pair of shoes there, a necklace there, etc. Also look on Pinterest for fashion/hair/accessory inspo and save your favourite pics. Tiktok has good inspo too but if you're looking more for the ultra feminine aesthetic without annoying voices and ads and lying, pinterest is your place.
Try going for soft, muted, pastel colours, and also colors like red, pink, and white. Clothes that accentuate your waist, boobs, and bum. Invest in a pushup bra too if you want to look more sexily feminine. Buy a pair of jeans and pair them with a skinny belt or a silver chain belt, any cute girly top you want, and white sneakers.
Aesthetics you can look into for good inspo would be cottagecore (a classic), old money woman, streetwear, coquette/dollette (just look past some of the weirdness bc they have some good looks), ballet core, bimbocore, soft girl, etc.
Try to avoid black sneakers because no woman has ever looked cute, dainty, or feminine in black sneakers. Avoid very baggy outfits until you have built a good closet because you might come across as even less stylish or kinda lazy. Avoid dressing in all black as well, unless it's specifically a very feminine silhouette.
I also look on Shein for ideas on what I'd actually buy and then find something similar at a local clothing store and buy it there.
Also! Get your clothes tailored! It's not expensive and it's a kind of life hack that the ultra rich do to make their clothes look like they were designed for them. It enhance your looks so much, I do it and it's so worth it.
This is just my own opinion and I hope this helps! I have gotten compliments/comments on my own femininity, cuteness, and fashion sense so I'm speaking from experience
using feminine 50x you sound like a troon. going straight into suggesting anon buy jewelry and start dressing super feminine and even suggesting colors is bizarre, you know nothing about her. cottagecore is not "classic" it's a current trend aesthetic. i like some aspects myself but classic, no.>>330958
figure out what silhouettes/clothing fits you like and even more importantly don't, as well as start looking for fashion inspo. see what you own already and what you gravitate towards, and what your needs are. clothing first and foremost is a tool. other people will suggest insta or image-based sites but i like youtube for fashion talk because you actually see people move while in the clothes they wear.
i personally found kibbe and color season analysis helpful in thinking about what i like, but if that's overwhelming to think about don't worry about them. i'm not a super fashionable person, i was just sick of buying clothes i regretted and disliked.
you want to build a closet of clothes you enjoy wearing, fit your needs, and look good together. i personally found the idea of everyone having different closet staples a very helpful idea: everyone suggests having a plain white t-shirt for layering, but then I realized I dislike layering so that wasn't helpful advice. start thinking about what staple tops and bottoms you would benefit from and could use as the basis for multiple outfits.
if you have short hair leaning into a more masculine or androgynous style might be nice. but you can do feminine looks with short hair too.
Solely to piss you off obviously>>330956>If it was me I'd be wearing an enormous shawl or cardigan (like swimming in it) and black sheer tights with booties.
I actually accept that gasp
beauty and style are subjective… Imagine that. That being said I would love to know more about your style since I don't really personally identify with a lot of the fashion choices here either. >>330970
This is good advice for the direction the original nonny
want to take her style in. I forgot we're not allowed to refer to femininity anymore though so fuck you I guess!
The world takes all kinds of people to go 'round nonnas, try dislodging the stick from your ass.
>>330994>youtube for fashion talk because you actually see people move while in the clothes they wear
I'm toayrt, I typically gravitate towards youtubers and what they wear because they seem more real to me kek>i was sick of buying clothes i regretted and disliked
I relate to this a lot. I would buy clothes and I end up not wearing them because I simply didn't like it. It's weird. I can see that it's a nice piece of clothing, but I either lack the skills or interest in actually wearing it.
, I appreciate the advice. I do want to appear more feminine and grow my hair. I kept cutting my hair short because I realized that I didn't like myself and I thought if I cut my hair short, maybe I'd feel better. But, I don't. To keep the impulse at bay, I was thinking to express myself with fashion. However, fashion is kind of complicated because everyone has their own style and I think it's mostly subjective but I think there's concepts that generally define a well put together outfit even if it's something I personally wouldn't wear. So I guess what I'm saying is that I don't have a style I particularly like yet
>>330970>it's really difficult and rare to look feminine/pretty with short hair
1920s-1950s women would like a word with you>coquette/dollette >bimbocore

you could get a rashguard surfer style top/shorts combo (or a real rashguard which is nice for colder water). plus it helps prevent sunburn which is my #1 issue with skimpy swimsuits.
I don't swim a lot so I usually just use workout clothes I already have if I'm camping or staying at a hotel with a pool or whatever.

what material should bathing clothes be made of? I wanna get some bathing shorts(preferly something designed for women so I dont have to shop in the men's section) but the websites I'm looking at dont state whenever the shorts are suitable for being in water. They call them bathing shorts but for all I know they are meant to be worn over regular bikini bottoms and then be taken of when entering the water I know you can find cute bathing shorts for women on aliexpress and similar site's but I want to buy something that is located in my own country for shipping and other reasons I have also looked at stores specialised in sports clothes and they do have some I just want to expand my options and sports bathing shorts don't have cute prints
samefag but I just noticed that people already have been discussing modest bathing clothes in this thread, my mistake! thats what I get for not reading the previous posts before postingwhich I usually do I swear
. But I still wanna know more about material that can stand water so I dont think this is too repetitive

Honest and unflitered opinions on this look being worn in 2023.

>>330695 I see you as an easily influenceable zoomer without personal taste. nta.
thank you so much for such a detailed reply! now i actually know what to look for. I did see some bathing shorts that was made out of cotton which I thought was a bit iffy so good to know I can avoid that>>331472
this is sort of similar to how i dress on work days I just use more colours and different shoes and bags. I think it's cute but I can see why other call it dated. But for me I consider it more casual than a fashion statement. its just a skirt + sweater most women already have it lying around so expecting women to never combine them is a bit much. I guess the silhouette would look less dated if it wasnt an a-line skirtin my opinion a-line skirt looks best and I cant wait for a comeback. Im personally not fond of the y2k look and i think its weird I know many who never dressed like that who immediately went out and bought a new wardrobe as soon as Y2K became trendy
. I do agree with the other anons though it needs more color and different shoes. Also I think it would look better if the skirt was a bit longer

I think all the discussion around that outfit is just the millenial/zoomer divide. If you're a millenial, you probably remember when that was trendy or still dress like that so of course you'll like it more than those of us who were too young to wear it back then.>>331500
Did I touch a nerve? I don't like the stuff you linked either. There's a lot of middle ground between y2k trendy shit and polyvore outfits though.>>331506
galaxy leggings, mustache pendants and all the neon 80's inspired shit from back then haunt me just as much as whatever the kids are doing today tbh. I like the look of a lot of styles from then like twee and tumblr grunge but it wasn't perfect kek
i think this is cute and prefer it over >>331472
because it looks less.. normie? like wearing the burgundy jumper outfit would be an attempt at looking put together and it just doesn't work now, whereas your example is dreamier and has a specific vibe that just carries over better.

samefag but thinking about awful 2010's fashion made me remember those cheap shitty "ironic" meme print sets like this that were EVERYWHERE

My main problem with this is the silhouette, booties can often cut off the legs. The girl is really cute though. Sorry if the editing is kind of choppy it was hard to match her pose.
That specific black/brown/burgundy color scheme is really dated, literally even just going monochrome black would update it passably. As a geriatric zoomer, that burgundy color—or “marsala”— was literally everywhere for like 4 years, it started trending during the seafoam green and coral era and then peaked in 2014/15. It’s the millennial pink of the mid 2010s.
Trash the boots like everyone else is saying and get black chunky or dainty heeled balletcore style shoes. Match the bag to the black shoes. That’s just if we want to keep the core vibe of the outfit untouched. honestly skater skirts and cropped sweaters are both fine separately but together it does come across as if you’re wearing a millennial costume. Your best bet is probably to buy an uncropped sweater and drop the waist of the look by keeping it untucked or wear the cropped sweater with baggy high rise or midrise jeans. Other denim styles are on trend now as well but low rise bootcut for example would not work with a loose cropped sweater like this on 99.9% of people because it will visually fridge them
File: 1685356244169.png (27.91 KB, 482x596, bag.PNG)
What do you think about that bag? It's cheap and made of plastic but it's cute and I have other bags I use all the time so I won't use it up to fast think if I buy it. It's also in black, white, pastel yellow and lilac but I like that color a lot. What do?
It was a very common and presentable look then, it might not be as common now, but it remains presentable as it used to be. I never liked the trends from back then so I obviously don't like it that much, but it's not exactly an eyesore, it's okay really.
If I saw a woman wear this in 2023 I would just assume she's not very fashionable/up to date on current trends. But not everyone needs to be a style sperg, it looks very clean and put together, there is no real bad assumption to make about someone dressed like this, she doesn't look lazy or obnoxious or anything.
Granted I look nasty most of the time due to my current job, so everyone else looks like a shining aristocrat in comparison kek. But even then, clothing store clerks often wear far more offensive outfits than that, I'd sooner get advice from a basic girl like this than from a piss haired themlet who dresses like a middle schooler at 29 like you often see on the street these days.

how would you guys style these blue bapestas?
pic not mine, i think they're really fun shoes but i don't want to splurge on getting a pair secondhand if it turns out they'd be ugly/unwearable and only good for shitty streetwear fits (i.e how most bape stuff looks to me)
A western european country where being basic is starting to be considered a crime, maybe it's just my area >>331953
It's a normal way to protect yourself from the sun but if you live in a place where being half naked is the overwhelming norm, if you're young they might assume you have self esteem issues or scars. Most people do not give a shit though >>331897
I can kind of picture them with khaki or light brown cargo pants, it would bring out the color and style nicely I think. And a baby tee or something like that but maybe that's too zoomerish for your taste. But they don't seem very versatile and would probably look weird with jeans outside of maybe a couple specific washes

Can someone give me recommendations for business casual shoes to the office that are also good for walking in a lot?
I was eyeing either a pair of Toms or Vans Classic Slip-Ons. I have wide feet with heels that don't stick out so shoes like high heels, ballet flats or loafers fall right off my feet

My eyes have been opened. Thank you.
The maxi/midi dress and wrap dress suggestions for my above comment were almost what I wanted overall…not quite but I think I could find something cut like that which might work. Happy to have terms to google. Thanks.
this is the obvious answer but there do exist stores that are specialied in selling authentic vintage clothes from the 50-70. Though they are usually a bit pricey because finding clothes from the 50 that is still in a good condition today is hard. If you live in a big city or close to one there might be a store like this. Try searching for something along the lines of "vintage clothes [city name]" on google. Etsy also has a market for vintage clothes so try looking there. Just remember to set the item type to vintage in the filters.>I do like the fashion and media of that period
being familiar with the period is going to work in your favour if you want to by modern clothes meant to emulate the 50's since you will be able to see what actually looks authentic and what looks like poor imitations. >>330558
posted some outfits that shouldn't be too hard to recreate using only modern normie clothes. Most stores sells those kinds of vests and shirts so you should be able to recreate them without having to buy vintage clothes or buy from special brands meant to mimic the 50's

Sorry I can't say much for removing it nonita, but depending on when you wear the jeans you could try incorporating visible mending to cover it up? It's mostly used for actual tears in clothes and can sometimes look trashy if you don't do it right, but it's a cute way to make your clothes more unique and only requires basic sewing skills. Maybe as a last resort if you can't get the acrylic off? Good luck nonita, as a former art student my strategy for acrylic stains was hot water ASAP and pray.

Does anyone else subconsciously give into trends without intending to? It’s like a lil robot takes over my brain and I end up buying things that I’ll probably hate in 6 months. It makes me feel bad. I’m talking about fairycore shit like picrel rn but I’ve done it in the past too. I try to stick to basics but I’m kind of a manic shopper and things happen. Thank god for depop
fr? ive got a couple of sweaters and ribbed long sleeves/crop tops and they seem pretty good to me >>332856
I dont think its too childish beyond the graphics section - there's pretty solid basics good for whatever ages but the general audience def skews more young
I normally dress on the more prep-y side but when y2k and "barbiecore" first gained traction I subconsciously bought clothes that matched those styles. Now I have a clothes that I don't like wearing and doesn't go with the rest of my clothes.
Nowadays I try to primarily buy my clothes second hand. It makes it harder to follow trends and "forces" me to only look after clothes that suits my tastes. It's also easier to avoid going on a shopping spree when you buy second hand because finding stuff you like (and in your own size) is more difficult so it's feels more rewarding when you find something you like
Ntayrt but they're right about colors being in style at certain times. Seafoam green / coral were super popular in 2012-14 and I remember being upset when they stopped making everything in forever 21 those two colors. Just like how the past year or two blinding neon green is everywhere and people won't be wearing that soon.
Agree it's stupid though and obviously trends are rooted in overconsumption. No need to get rid of them.

I need some advice with picking out a bottom for this shirt. The color is much more muted in person but I want to do something other than denim

Here’s an idea I saw. I don’t love this but it’s subjective so you might. Personally I think tucked into a skirt or slacks would be cute. It’s hard to say what color without trying different things though, maybe green or orange, or the right shade of tan
File: 1685880334093.png (1.66 MB, 1903x1543, foranon.png)
I personally don't get the Alemais hype at all. But this is how I'd style it, depending on if you want to have it as a statement piece or lean into the flamboyance.

Not sure if this would be the best thread to ask, but does anyone have advice regarding glasses frames that are in style currently, or kind of timeless? I’ve been wearing the same ray-ban frames for a few years and I finally have an appointment in the summer, I can’t wait to try something new once I get my numbers updated.

A long summer dress with a heavier fabric of some kind! I have a navy blue pair and they match perfectly with a dress that is very similar to picrel.
Just wear simple and modest stuff, nothing shiny, or neon, or with flowers or crazy patterns. Pick neutral colors (brown, beige, gray, white even but not too much white) or just black, simple and small accessories.
Preferably don’t wear tight clothes, you’re going to support someone who is grieving or you’re goin to grieve, not going to a catwalk or a bar, which means you should also avoid cutouts or low necklines.
Dress comfortable too because you may have to walk around a graveyard or stand still for a while, so avoid too high heels or sandals.

What the heck do I wear to a funeral? It always seemed simple but now that I'm in this situation I have no idea what to buy. A long dress seems so formal but a short dress seems inappropriate. I don't really want to do pants because then I have to buy pants and a shirt when I could just buy a dress. Idk idk idk pls help nonnas. To be fair, I was surprised at the last funeral I went to because a lot of the women were wearing denim with blouses and heels. Idk maybe a flowy skirt and a blouse would be nice, I already have some heels that could go with that. What would you do? My only guidelines are that I'm short, so I like to honor the rule of thirds, and that makes some lengths of skirts/dresses and certain types of shoes look really dumpy. I do prefer a defined waist. I tend to dress "edgy" but that's not a big concern for a funeral tbh. This is not someone I was close with so I don't really need anything super duper comfy or anything like that. And my peers and I are like, working class, so I don't need anything opulent or too dressy. Am west coast burger so if anyone has shop recommendations I'd appreciate it!

2014 tumblr is really in rn, I would do dark stocking tights and docs for shoes or any dark combat boots maybe even Mary Jane flats, some dark skirt or florals (shorter skirt with dark stockings is more modest), a dark denim jacket and any dressy dark top. Nothing too revealing though. Picrel for the stockings and docs. Think that outfit but with a mid thigh skirt and a dark top.
Hmm, I think boots are a little juvenile for this purpose but I like the dark tights + skirt idea. All of my heels are open toe. It's stupid to wear tights with open toed shoes, right?>>333222
Touché. I guess I meant to say I would feel uncomfortable in a gown, it seems too dramatic for me personally but maybe I'm being weird.

Don’t buy this from Amazon but just get something like this and be done with it. You’re overthinking it. If you have to go shorter than this, wear opaque tights. Shoe doesn’t matter unless you’re standing for a long time or it’s an outdoor funeral, whatever black shoes you have is fine.
Quality is great, not as good as Zimmerman but better than gorman or Sass & Bide.
I love the artist as well so I really wanted something from the collection.

Think business/office wear but in black. Aim for covered knees and shoulders, which may mean incorporating tights, blazers, etc. Find something you could repurpose for a job interview or something similarly formal at a later date. You can't really go wrong with dressing "up" at a funeral but dressing down too much could be a bit of a faux pas even if you didn't know the person.
I would personally opt for a black shirt and trouser since it's easier to dress both pieces down for other more casual occasions.

Something like this nonnie
. Maybe add a silver chain like a belt around your waist to accentuate it and wear thigh high black stockings. Go with skull earrings to show how dedicated you are to the theme of the occasion (death, darkness, etc) hope this helps
File: 1686039716549.jpeg (18.41 KB, 495x619, images (10).jpeg)
You could wear these. They're formal without being too formal + they're spooky and black which fits the theme. Buy some croc charms that are like knives, weapons, spooky stuff. If the deceased person passed away from something specific try to find a way to I corporate it into your outfit like if they died from being stabbed, look on Shein for knife earrings. Or if they had cancer, wear a bald cap
I stg nonnie
, I'm half asleep and was losing my mind reading "formal, but not too formal platform crocs". Made it all the way to "bald cap" before I realized. kek
Keking at some of these responses. Nonita, it's really simple. Mid length black dress, maybe heels if you want, I usually wear a blazer if it's going to be cold. >>333275
is the most solid advice, you can reuse the pieces individually so it's a good investment regardless.>>333604>>333606

It’s a funeral. Anon also said she doesn’t really know the person that died, she’s a guest, not a person actually grieving.>>333217>This is not someone I was close with
But I mean, here’s a nice outfit for you, anon, I hope you get to make it look nice. Have fun, drink a lot and maybe play some music while everyone is waiting for the coffin to get buried.

I think it's time to get back to fashion. What are you all actually wearing today?
My outfit is inspired by this picture, although with a less crazy waist and a modern blouse.

How would I make this university-friendly? Specifically for my morning lectures. We aren't allowed to show huge amounts of cleavage due to a girl showing up in her bikini top and sweat pants after going to the beach before class. Kek. So I need to cover my tits up.
Atm I'm thinking of pairing it with my brown leather jacket, a black t shirt, and black kitten heels. Hair loose and a red hairband. Plain silver stud earrings. Is that fine or am I gonna make my lecturer blow his brains out haha?
Picrel isn't the exact dress I have but almost the same. Advice please yall.
Thanks. I'll definitely add the black tights. The dress sits a few cm underneath my butt.>>333953
No need to call me prude. At least I don't show up to class in my bikini. Although I'll take your suggestion about the stilletos. Thanks >>333954
Aah tbh I'm not sure what material it is. My ex got it for me from his trip to Amsterdam. It kinda smells like plastic or rubber? Almost like the way a Barbie smells, hopefully someone knows what I mean. It's definitely not genuine leather unfortunately. My ex was a cheap ass.

A friend of mine used to unironically wear heels to uni everyday. Not stilettos but still chunky tall ones. She was tall too, over 180cm without heels, she towered above most men (and her own bf) it was great.>>333980
Glad I go to a down to earth uni where most girls don't even wear mascara
I actually bothered to wear something nice while going to work instead of sweatpants today! I wear a uniform so I usually just throw something lazy on before hurrying to catch the train.
I wore a black A line cotton dress, black tights, black leather sandals, an oversized 80s blue jean jacket, a black hat (a panama hat? I had to google hat types kekk) and tumblr weed smoker girl sunglasses uwu

Tips for styling picrel? I have a job interview coming up.
Kind of, I wear my long hair and do my makeup in a vintage inspired style.
Don't feel silly making effort! Wear those nice pieces you have nonas, it always makes me feel better to dress nicely even if it's for mundane activities. >>333986>tumblr weed smoker girl sunglasses uwu

Now that's an appropriate funeral top. kidding of course
This is even better than what I said. Anon should also walk in with a joint and a bottle of Prime to show that she's in with the kids and can bring new, fun, trendy ideas to the business.
Btw, omg anon, we should make a fashion/personal styling business together. Everyone is gonna be employed because of us. We could even run for government with the slogan "DRESSED FOR SUCCESS" and sponsor Mikayla Nogueira to speak positively of us to the masses

Eh not so much dressing for hot weather or wearing something short or with cleavage - I’m talking about full blown stripper outfits, and the girls I’m referencing are walking around at night (in the cold) wearing these outfits too, picrel. Men should have self control, but where I live it’s extremely dangerous for everyone (not just women) and I still see young girls out on the street dressed this way. There’s a lot of rape and SA in my city. I don’t know why they choose to present themselves this way for seemingly no reason at all, while doing casual things like grocery shopping or walking to a 7/11. Sure every woman should have the freedom to wear whatever they want - but dress for the occasion, not just for attention from the crackheads outside of 7/11 or your local grocer jfc
