Pic related, I adore this entire look. I like stockings, heels, boots, sneakers, dresses, pants, pretty much anything. I used to feel like I could only be confined to one thing but I grew up a bit and realized that I could look good in any style. I hope it doesn't come off as snobby because that isn't my intent. I felt, for lack of a better term, liberated by not having to stick with one style all of the time.

At the same time, I'm also very into the 80s hi-cuts as they suit my build more than hipster or skinny jeans, boyshort panties, etc. I miss when bikinis were cut like that and I've been so happy to see that they're coming back in style because I was getting to the point where I debated asking mom if she still had her from back in the day.

I would love to wear high-fashion girly like this, but I'm really heavily tattooed and I'm worried I'd look ridiculous.

I really like simple feminine fashions, like ankle-length skirts with fitted tops/slimknit jumpers. I struggle to find good quality skirts though, as they all seem to be made of this stretchy cotton material (viscose?) which isn't suitable for English winters. I also never know what shoes to wear with these skirts… any suggestions?

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

I really like berets, high socks, oxford shoes, checked clothes, oversized wooly sweaters, shirts and high-waisted skirts (without going full schoolgirl/delicate lady mode, I often dress androgynous as well) but I have no idea what that style is called.

I had a friend who was a similar build and she looked absolutely kickass when she would wear sundresses like pic related that flattered her bust and small waist. With a cardigan and usually flats and she had a textured bob haircut that was great with that body shape too. A lot of retro or pinup styles look great with your shape too, it doesn't have to be generic rockabilly Imelda May tryhard trash but subtle pinup silhouettes are great for flattering that figure. >>73678
Yeah I had this too and honestly it never changed until I moved to a bigger city rather than a small town. If the majority in the town or wherever you live dress very bland and generally frown upon alternative styles then I think there's sadly no hope as you'll always be the odd one out and you're up against generations of this being the norm. In a bigger city people usually may not always think your style is for them but will either not notice, not care, or admire it even though it isn't to their taste, they appreciate that it's different to see.

I’m hoping for some advice as well. I’m a neat hourglass with naturally muscular / kinda broad shoulders. The main issue I have is finding tops that flatter both my waist and shoulders.

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

Also the fungus shoes are cool. Fungus isn’t a negative.

Happy to help and hey, it’s a lot easier to say ‘lose weight’ than to actually lose it. Good on you for making the effort.

Depending on your torso to leg ratio you could also do very well with black tights and a skirt (any really) paired with all-black shoes, or from tucking a blouse into high waisted jeans.

No matter what shape you’re made in there’s something out there that looks excellent on you and feels good. If it’s not too expensive you could even consider getting your clothes in a larger size and having them tailored to fit so that nothing sits awkwardly between wide shoulders and a narrow torso.

what kind of casual styles/brands/cuts works well for smaller waists but fat arms and legs? i would love to just throw on a pair of jeans and a t shirt but i look like a fatass because my waist is the smallest part of me and if it isnt highlighted, i look like a blob. i cant wear tight dresses or belted dress all of the time, nor do i want to

i cant even find many shirts that hug the midsection, as everything is like, straight cut or loose bc skinny girls that have skinny limbs look great in that shit, but no matter how thin i get, my arms and legs still look disproportionate. i know a lot of JUST pear women can look great, but my arms are kinda chubby, so casual stuff is a nightmare

I’m going to shill for a brand I like that I found through amazon, oddly enough! They’re called Mordenmiss, and they seem like they’re trying to fill a gap for bigger girls, too, which some might find useful so I thought I’d give them a shoutout.

I’m 5’6” and about 124lbs, and I love both strega and mori, this company has a lot of pieces that can work really well with strega in particular as I’ve not had much luck with thrifting. I generally get their one size fits all or if they have a size, a large so that I can layer well. They only thing I wish they’d make are those wife beater petticoats you see on aliexpress, but they’re also surprisingly receptive to user feedback so who knows? If we flood them with pictures maybe they’ll start making their own.

http://www.mordenmiss.com/ or just go to your local amazon and search for mordenmiss.

pic related, it’s a top I wear all the time.

It definitely is real, not all ankle boots are made in the same shape and not all will fit you. Try a bunch of different ones until you find ones you like. Not all of them will go well with all types of trousers either.
It could also be a heel height issue, if they're too flat and the rest of the outfit is bulky it will make it look unbalanced.

It's still larme kei even if the colors are darker. That's exactly what the style was created for, looking cute but offering styles that are appropriate and flattering for women in their 20s and 30s.

I'm obsessed with 1940s British fashion. A time of war and rations, women had to be inventive and simple in order to express themselves. They were a generation of working women who had to go to factories or work in the fields. Yet, they still managed to make their functional dresses feminine and attractive. I love the construction and the patterns, there's a mix of urban and country.

But I feel like the era has been co-opted by "plus size" American women and now the style is seen as matronly or frumpy. I cry.

I like the structured lines and ingenuity. I have a tall, slim figure so I think the style would suit but I'm afraid itll be seen an outdated.

I'm a history major, so this is basically my shit.



I love how even in war, fashion was still at the forefront of culture and society. That women were still adapting and expressing themselves, despite the rations and restrictions. Pockets and bows were banned because they were considered unnecessary

>“Imports were limited and raw materials and manufacturing capacity were needed for the war effort. As the war went on people became very creative.”

>Indeed, armed with handy tips such as how to unpick old jumpers, create decorative patches for concealing holes in worn-out garments and protect against the menace of moths, we became a nation of tailors.

I think it makes me proud of my country and what we have gone through.

>“It is often assumed that it was drab time but people used bright colours and patterns, partly as a way of putting on a brave face and cheering yourself up during wartime,” adds Amanda.

I love color and wear bright clothes often, including dresses. I usually stick to the more wrap-around 70s style but I'd love to add in some more structured, militaristic pieces.

>Another impact of rationing was to improve the quality of British-made clothes, which had to last, and make production more efficient.

For an apple shape, I recommend wearing stuff that directs the eye away from your belly. If you have slimmer shoulders and and presumably skinnier legs, an oversized sweater look might work.

Personally, I think dresses like pic related are nice for plus size apple types, try finding one that cinches under the bust instead of at the waist, which would help divert attention from the biggest problem area. Basically, avoid anything that’s going to define your stomach, go for styles that are flared at the ribs and try using interesting patterns elsewhere on your body.

Can you guys give me some advice about putting outfits together and improving my shopping habits in general? I have a really hard time coordinating my clothes, but I'm also kind of addicted to thrift shopping.

I have a closet full of unique vintage pieces, but I seldom wear them. This is because I have a bad habit of snagging cheap but cool pieces without considering what I'm going to pair them with. In addition, there's a lot of different aesthetics and eras catching my eye that I want to tap into. But I feel like the styles I'm into have no consistency, therefore there's no solid "look" I'm going for… Lastly, I'm kinda lazy, and usually when I leave the house I just end up wearing really comfy, normcore tier shit.

The plus side is I'm not spending myself into ruins. I only go to thrift stores when I know I have enough to treat myself, and everything else I own is cheap department store stuff, a lot of it which I've owned for years. I just feel like a fucking mess with a diverse closet and nothing to do with it.

Any suggestions of what I should do? Even if that means ending thrifting altogether and selling my clothes? (also let me know if this post is more appropriate or the advice thread)

No. 89180

I would recommend choosing a cohesive color palette and getting solids that work with various vintage finds across eras. Pick colors that you like wearing, sell off the cool things you have that don’t fit your palette, and then use that money for staple pieces etc.

I wear a lot of vintage styles, and my wardrobe is primarily comprised of black, grey, wine, pink and white. Having a lot of neutrals makes it easier to start bringing in other colors when I want to, though, so I have some green and blue in my wardrobe too. I look like shit in yellow and orange so I don’t have any in my closet.

How to woman?

When I was a cringy teenager I'd mostly wear 'alternative' fashion styles like Goth or Lolita. I was alright with coordinating, but not exactly with choosing anything that actually suits me.
After I had a fitness phase and was okay with just walking around in sportsgear 24/7 I now realize that I have no idea how to dress myself and I feel like I am shooting myself in the foot. My boyfriend said he wants to be able to show me off like a Ferrari, but I don't know how to dress for my bodytype. I have very broad shoulders, ribcage and hips, small boobs, relatively long legs. My best feature is probably my ass+legs. I'd currently describe myself chubby muscular (off-season), but a few months out of the year I have a 4-pack.

What kind of style would suit me? What clothing items would suit my body? Other than that I am cookie cutter long blonde green eyed whitie, not a striking beauty so I can't get away with too far out there stuff.

Unrelated, but I've tried out the body visualizer for the first time now, and it really pisses me off how you can't make a busty hot woman's body lol. When you increase the bust, the ribcage gets large, the tits sag, the face becomes witchy and something weird happens to the hips. Wtf
Also you can't build a super jacked man, no matter what, he'll always have skinny woman legs

No. 89222

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

No. 89249

This sounds like a really good game plan. I think one of my issues is indeed colors being all over the place. My most worn pieces are black, white, and blue, and I have some neutral tones as well. But many of my thrifted items are a weird mix of pastels and earth tones and various patterns haha…

Anyways, I'm about to do some deep cleaning before the summer ends, so I'll definitely go through my closet and sort out what I won't actually wear. And in the future when I shop I'll focus on getting practical pieces that match with a lot of things, like you suggested. Thanks again anon, you're a life saver!

Can I ask for opinions/advice? I need a new handbag. I’ve been looking at Rebecca Minkoff’s Mini Mac for a couple of weeks and and it seems not ~too classy~ for my basic bitch needs but it’s also kinda edgy (not into that). But it’s the only bag I could find atm that comes with metal accents that aren’t gold. How do ya’ll feel about RM? Also, do you know any places I could find second hand HE-bags that aren’t ebay? I’m not really into any of the current styles. Idk why but I haven’t been able to make any gd decisions lately!

I'm the exact same way anon, lately i have been buying a few pieces from shein. Theyre stuff is pretty trendy and not super expensive but I have no doubt its cheap chinese sweatshop teir.

I own some aliexpress thigh highs and they are godwaful to wear but i usually coord it with plain spandex and one of the tops i got from shein for an easy street to gym transition. All and all I would say light but formal tops have saved my wardrobe.

I used to order a lot of pieces from Romwe. Had no issues with delivery, and everything fit fine and was decent quality.

I stopped shopping there though cause the site got really weird, like they started selling men's and children's clothes (???) and all this random ass house crap. It's not even a women's fashion site anymore, it's another Ali site.

I normally wear a lot of pastels and a lot of pink (general weeb fashion), but because I'm short, it makes me look like I'm 12.

Cute, girly and pastel but with feminine cuts.

Keep your waist defined, tops that are boxy or sit badly on the chest (y’know the tube-boob look?) are unflattering.

Been seeing a lot of braids or loose hair styles which help counter a more masculine style outfit, and little accents like nails, jewelry.

I’ve seen a lot of cropped shirts and fitted black turtlenecks being worn with vintage denim
Use a belt, or switch up your shapes and wear a boxy top with bottoms that make your legs look ten miles long.

Boxy tops are cruel because they only suit long thin bodies. Short or thick figures get lost and look bulky

The pleats on the front look pointless. They don’t add much aside from a flap at the crotch.
The hem line will make it impossible to sit or bend without showing your ass cheeks, and the crotch depth on playsuits ensures that it will also jam itself into your crotch when sitting or bending, unless it’s made of a stretchy fabric. (Which would be a whole other issue here because jersey would cling horribly and the scuba fabric everything trend is just ugly af)

The garment on the model doesn’t even fit nicely tbh. It’s bunching at the waist and ribs because the darts don’t fit her bust.

What do you guys think of Kibbe's theory of body types? Aly Art has so much videos about this theory.

In my opinion it is very interesting and legit. I learned a lot and I'm more confident what fits me and my style. I am a soft gamine btw

For example this model is a flamboyant natural and she looks hideous in this pink childish dress which emphasizes her harsh features. But this dress would look good on gamines on the other hand

No. 92598

This is actually the first body type video that clicked for me, I’ve spent a lot of time wondering if I’m rectangular or Apple or whatever fruit, but she really broke it down in a way I could get. Apparently I’m a soft gamin as well, thank you for sharing anon!

No. 92600

Same for me! I wonder if we could make a new thread with Kibbe related stuff. It isn't only body types but hairstyles and makeup too and I love discussing based on a theory. It would explain a lot why some people look good with a certain style while others don't

No. 92601

i don't see how it's a theory. is there something i'm missing? it just seems like a subjective way of recognizing patterns in different body types, same as the old fruit thing. it does seem more useful and less vague than the old way, but it's not like there's anything empirical that would make this "theory" "correct" and the old way "incorrect."

i always thought the fruit method was too vague. you can be an hourglass and 6' with a long torso and square violin hips or you can be an hourglass who's 5'2 with round hips and a short torso. you're telling me those people are going to look good and bad in the same things? so i like that this method takes lots of factors into account besides just your shoulder/waist/hip ratio.

i took her test and i'm a theatrical romantic and it checks out because the clothes and styling she recommended are the ones i've gravitated to over the years.

gotcha. thanks for clearing it up! i shouldn't have been so cynical. i guess i'm a little tired of hearing shit like "the spoon theory."

No. 92606

Look at Alys playlist. She has so many details and tests you can make if you are insecure

No. 92607

i took her test and watched a few videos and i'm almost certain i'm theatrical romantic. i'm tall with long limbs and high sharp cheek bones but the rest of my facial features are big and soft, my shoulders are very round and narrow, proportionally small waist, very wide hips, fairly big boobs, small hands and feet. to me that seems like mostly yin skeletal structure, mostly yin features, yin flesh, and just a few yang features which would be theatrical dramatic. this is fun lol

No. 92609

It is ok. I mean you are somewhat right because it is not scientific paper which you can prove.
David Kibbe just made up his own "theory" of body types. For some it's a good orientation and others think it's bs. What I like about Kibbe is that it is so diverse that everybody can identify with a type

No. 92610

yeah that makes sense.

is there a male version of the test/theory? i feel like just using the regular female version for a man wouldn't quite work. i want to see what my bf would get. actually now that i think about it with these types i feel like he would be an inverse of me. eerie.

i found these descriptions


"Kibbe says he wrote the men's section in the book Color For Men (the edition of Color Me Beautiful for men). That only has the base types no subtypes, though. He considers himself a Theatrical Romantic and works with men as well as women."

so it's a shame i can't sperg out with subtypes and tests. from the descriptions i think he's right in between natural and romantic honestly.

No. 92661

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

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

getting a new pair of doc martens and i can't decide between these two: 1461 Bex (on the left) and the Adrian Smooth (on the right). i love the chunkiness of the 1461 Bex but i also love how the other ones look like loafers. in the winter i wear a lot of miniskirts with tights and i think both of these would be cute with those outfits. for versatility, which of these would look better with pants as well? which one would you guys choose?

No. 92903

The left ones look like my fathers shoes to be honest. Both are chunky and have the same effect you desire to achieve if you wear a dress or pants. The right ones are more feminin and versatile in my opinion. Overall it depends on your style anon.

No. 92932

This is strange because I've wanted the Adrian loafers forever but was just recently considering getting the 1461s, haha.
To me, loafers suggest more of a preppy style and the 1461s seem a lot edgier. If you wear more alt fashion I'd get the 1461s, but if you have more of a "classic" style then the Adrians are probably better.

I can’t deal with fast fashion crap any more. Bad sizing, bad craftsmanship, bad fabric, bad business practice, bad prices for what it is (fifty dollars for some polyester and six seams is a joke. Only an idiot would wear it)
But it’s so hard to escape unless you make all your own stuff down to knickers, or if you can afford insanely expensive things. It shouldn’t take a $600 dress to get a french or flat-fell seam and no garment over $100 should be zigzag stitched but here we are.

Hey ladies,
So, I feel like I have a lot of neat/cute clothing pieces, but I have no idea how to put them together

or i get overwhelmed/nervous to “dress up” and I always end up wearing my goofy ass ripped jeans and over sized hoodie— which i think is comfy and cute sometimes!! But i am tired of lookin the same every time I put on clothes lol idk

That shit is why I generally don't seek fashion advice from LC. Some anons are lovely, but others will act like you've insulted their mother if you post certain clothing items, most noticeably when it's stuff that looks best on skinny frames, like baggy clothing or most J-fashion.

I have a hunch that such anons are probably overweight, aged-looking or dumpy themselves, ie they flat-out can't pull off certain things and need to "dress for their age/body" at all times. They either seem to assume all of us must be the same way, and want to "help" by dissuading anons from wearing clothing that'd be unflattering on themselves, or they just get irritated whenever they're reminded that there are others who actually can pull off things they can't, so they go on attack mode.

Does anyone have any recommendations for dresses/skirts that would look nice and feminine without heels? I don’t want to damage my feet just for the sake of looking cute, and I also consider comfort to be the most important aspect of my clothing. So far I’ve found that tshirt or bodycon dresses work really with sneakers, but I would love to hear more suggestions for cuts that would look nice with non heeled shoes that aren’t necessarily flats as they can be difficult to walk long distances in.

No. 101150


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

My biggest problem with finding clothes is that I'm extremely picky when it comes to comfort:
>I always feel cold, but find nearly all pullovers to be too scratchy
>I have a very sensitive neck, to the point of feeling like I'm choking when something touches it lighty, so no turtle necks, scarves, etc - but on the other hand I also don't want to show cleavage
>everything remotely tight on my waist like skirts or skinny jeans triggers my ibs
>leggings or yoga pants always feel too tight and make my skin itch
>I probably own over 30 pair of shoes yet have only one that doesn't give me blisters
>can't even put my hair into a ponytail because even that gives me a headache
I wish I could just wear a loose tshirt, trackpants and my favourite sneakers all year long… What should I do? I buy things but then end up only wearing them only once because I can't stand the feel of them. If something is itchy or tight it literally ruins my while day.

as far as i can tell from this pic you have a large hip to waist difference so i made this collage to show why you should stay away from these corduroy/denim a-line skirts that are trending now, like the one that the other anon posted. you should stick to soft fabrics if you go for an a-line and buy more tailored skirts (like the pic on the right) if you want a harder fabric.

archivings on tumblr aka http://archivings.net/ is prime for this, the guy behind it has scanned fashion magazines/photobooks from the 70s onward for years. the 80s was a great time for this look specifically. his "scan rejects" and miscellaneous blog is good too, and a lot of the stuff he posts fall in line with it. you'll get to know designers/their work as you go through. designers you will probably want to look at, outside of pic related for this stuff, include Thierry Mugler, early YSL (look up "le smoking"), early Dior, Jil Sander, and Gaultier. maybe some Comme Des Garcons and Yohji Yamamoto.

rarebooksparis on instagram puts up a bunch of fantastic old photo book scans as well.

Can any anons please tell me where I could maybe find a dupe of this reformation dress? why does nobody make this style its perfect… and my wallet will not let me get the real thing

No. 101883

with the risk of sounding like a spoiled giga bitch, when i browsed their website i couldn’t find this specific one but others similar to it were around $218. for a high quality dress that should last you a really long time and that you really really want, that’s not insanely expensive. if you restrict yourself and don’t buy a shit ton of forever 21 items that will be distressed beyond repair within a year it shouldn’t leave too big of a hole in your wallet.

i don’t know how small your budget is or how much you usually spend on clothes, but the real deal is always better than the knockoffs and it’s usually a better investment in the long run to own a few items of high quality than to spend money over and over again on less expensive ones that won’t last nearly as long.

What are your measurements/weight, if you don’t mind?

When I put my stats into this thing, I feel like it’s not how I look at all. But I can’t tell if it’s just denial/BDD or I’m really just a board with tits.

Anyway… my go-to is a loose-fitting blouse or sweater with fitted pants or skirt. It’s a bit imbalanced, but at least my bobbies aren’t front and center, but I don’t look frumpy either.

Glad to hear you share my struggles anon, my measurements are B:35 W:24 H:31 and I weigh 110, the pic is pretty accurate to me I think.
I've definitely been wearing the loose sweater fitted pants look for awhile, but it's not exactly the most exciting look… I feel like wider pants (to give the illusion of hips) and a tighter shirt might even us out better? I just have so much trouble finding pants that fit since my hips/waist are so small, I haven't been able to try it out yet.

Would absolutely recommend wider pants either highwaisted that flare out at the hips or if you want to go lower, then pair them with a big belt. Also a line skirts are a good choice. I feel like dark tight tops with lighter wide pants or skirt is a very good combo for this body type.

Could any of you anons give me some advice on more tomboy-ish fashion? Recently I've been more inspired to cultivate my personal style (aka dress how I really want), but I have trouble doing so because the only 'fashion' influences I can think of are male. I really like somewhat edgy, but casual alternative styles like how Kurt Cobain or teenagers in 90s alternative/metal scenes dressed, but I don't know how well those styles would translate on a female frame, especially because I'm on the taller side. I know most anons on this board tend to like more feminine styles, but I'm wondering if anyone has experience in translating male fashion inspiration into something a girl could wear without looking frumpy. Or am I just doomed and should start trying to find more feminine fashion inspo instead?

No. 104028

Why is it so hard to just go out, buy the clothes you like, and if something doesn't specifically work you can change it and then maybe ask for opinions with specific problems?
It just seems kind of contradictory and pathetic that you say you want to dress how you like in an incredible casual style, using a picture of the literal human embodiment of "I do what I want, whatever people think", but you need strangers on the internet to order you about and give you formal rules

If you're scared of being frumpy then just do what you do in any type of fashion and just be mindful of the things that make you frumpy aka if you need a defined waist then only buy fitted girls tops

I have problem that its completely dissonant from my interests, Metal, horror movies, weird shit. I find it hard to make friends because people are judgemental, don't even say they are, life is just like that you know.

But anyway, if you like just the music and don't feel the need to dress metaller, you shouldn't do it just to blend in, find people that are not judgemental about your clothes instead.

Looks like the goffs fights over liking only the music and not dressing goth or liking dressing goth but not listening.

It isn't really a subpart of larme that is like that, it's just a section in the magazine that had looks like that and it was titled Urban Goth, but western bloggers tend to put labels on everything. Lots of people like to break down Larme fashion into styles like "pheromone fetish", "classic French" and whatnot but it's not really classified at all in the magazine. These edgy looks aren't very common in the magazine, it was just this one section. However larme looks often have edgy elements like leather skirts, chokers, lingerie like clothes etc. so it's kind of a mix of sugar and poison. Lol sorry that was kinda spergy wasn't it?
Here is a blog post with scans from the issue which had that urban goth section. This blog has a lot more scans of other issues as well. https://emiiichan.blogspot.com/2016/09/larme-024-rhapsody-of-night-and-fog.html

Yep. It’s way better. A basic sewing machine can be had for under $100. Patterns are free online and cheap in thrift stores, fabric can be picked up cheap.

I like sundresses, and make mine from vintage fabrics from the thrift store.
Everything fits better, no more fake pockets, no more jacked-up prices for shit seams, higher quality garments (better jersey for your shirts, proper seams even for basic garments, never have to go back to shitty clothing stores like f21 or whatever crap)

I didn’t get lessons, just dicked around for a year until I got the hang of it. There’s heaps of YouTube tutorials out there to help. I like MellySews for patterns and written tutorials.
Good luck!

I have thick legs too.
What I do is wear lots of flared skirts or dresses with thick thights/leggings under it. (normally you won't lose that much heath from your legs but you can wear thermal leggings for those really cold days)
Make sure your coat goes no longer than your hips or get a coat that's a bit flared to the bottom and has a defined waist.

I’m irritated because I live in Paris now and the fashion here is starting to influence my own fashion choices and overall style. I came basically dressed like a casual goth or alt girl with bright green hair and now I have jet black hair and dress like a casual chic clone that wears various shades of black and grey. I use to hate the oversized coats and scarf combos I’d see constantly, but seeing it so often now I want to incorporate it into my wardrobe. The true irritation I think lies within myself, that I dress as a reflection of what’s around me/the groups I’m in instead of just for myself, and my idea of fashion was always to use it as an expression of who I am as a person to reflect that to the world around me. Anyone else struggle with their fashion identity, or maybe you don’t have this issue, and what do you think influenced you personally/culturally to feel this way?

No. 106109

My main criteria is above anything, you can never go wrong with a lbd. Depending on the type of occasion you can get something sleeveless, high collar, lower cut, short length, past the knees, it’s personal preference really. If it’s a truly elegant dinner I’d suggest nothing above the knee, it might be better to go floor length to be on the safe side but if you have nice legs calf length (mid length/midi online) can look okay. I’d suggest something with a higher neckline depending on the dress, lower cut v’s can turn into casual very quickly. Strappy heels with manicured toes are always trendy, but you can always do a closed pump if you don’t feel like showing off your feet. But you should MOST DEFINITELY wear heels. Minimal jewelry, try to keep any necklaces, bracelets, rings etc on the dainty delicate side, preferably one of each if you feel you must have some sort of jewelry on. Earrings should match the aesthetic your other jewelry is given, ala if your ring is emerald use small emerald earrings, if you wear pearls

You might be able to find something nice at an outlet or wholesale type warehouse deal, but I try to go for boutiques or high end department stores as the quality tends to be better than “prom dresses r us”

No. 106113


I would avoid largely synthetic fabrics (polyester, acrylic etc) with the exception of viscose if you're not sure about a brand/store's quality as they're usually poorer in appearance. They are ok in smaller percentages:
80% 30% acrylic.
However, they're not always shit but it's depends on the production of the fibres (usually more expensive for synthetic fibres not to be shitty) - natural fibres tend to be of a better quality regardless of price-point. I trust cotton, wool, linen even in random sites they're going to look better. Most things will be cotton though.

It's pretty difficult to sus production quality without having the item irl but for me the most important is the fabric.
You might want to observe:
- thickness and opacity (thin cotton fabric is not great either)
- observe in the modelling pictures by zooming if the seams and stitching is neat and straight (crappier mass produced items is sometimes obviously sloppy here)

Also for mid-tier-ish brand for some Scream Queens-esque clothes Valfre quality from what I've gotten has been good.

- High Fashion
- Luxury
- Premium
- Ready-To-Wear vs. Mass Market

Avant garde: basically weird for the sake of weird. Garments as art, all very high concept and not intended for just wearing.

Designer: from a designers brand/house. Is used to refer to things from Michael kors garbage bags to a YSL gown.

Couture: made for you. Frequently misused to mean designer.

High-end: the higher end of the brand/designer scale. Think Chanel compared to Kate spade.

Luxury: supposedly high quality luxury materials and construction. Often used to make bonded leather sound like it’s not cheap and nasty.

Ready to wear: designer garments made for the store racks.

Mass-market: on the racks at Kmart.

I've been trying to experiment more with my wardrobe and try flowier and girlier silhouettes since I normally just wear pants and tshirts/sweaters and it's getting kinda boring. I'm a student and most days I just go to class and am doing things around campus. Is it considered overdressed or trying too hard to wear casual dresses and skirts? I know that's kind of a dumb question but I rarely see students at my school wear something other than jeans/leggings unless it's for an interview.

Gave you some non-western boot options if you don't wanna play that up. The bag is a Fossil Sydney Satchel in the color Raisin. The gold embossing on your belt brought that bag to mind. I love my Sydney Satchel…. The boots I found on Google images, although apparently the black booties are from Urban Outfitters!

If you don't like, lmk and I'll probably try again! Also how cold is it where you live?

Thank you for your help! Gosh, I wish I owned the belt pictured. I only have regular brown belts.

I love silk tops, and it would be nice to wear more feminine clothes like it - as opposed to my usual tomboyish looks.

Can I get some opionions or guidence an wearing open-toed heels with pantyhose?
I'm going to a wedding tomorrow and I don't have any formal winter closed toed heels/boots, and I'm strapped for cash. I have a pair of open-toed wedges that are all black and black tights. Yes/no?
Btw I live in a warm climate and right now it's 54 degrees F. So I may be a little cold, but not anywhere near as severe as other places rn.
Pic related is almost exactly what I have, same fabric and all, but with a heel strap and a wedge-style heel.

Any other anons grappling with the fact they're too old to wear their favorite clothes/style anymore? I used to be in the camp of wear whatever you want whenever you want, but I'm nearly 22 now and starting to look my age. Excessively cute clothes like frilly skirts, thigh highs, and cropped cardis just isn't gonna look right and I don't feel comfortable going out in it like I used to.

Don't worry about it. The only maturing people should do when it comes to wardrobe is understanding time/place/occasion. Kids and teens can get away with dressing however all the time, but adults should at least have some outfits to fit more conservative/business/etc occasions.

I used to feel that way. I'm 24. Then an older friend took me shopping and I tried on "mature" business casual clothes and other things I'd never tried, and found a new passion and wardrobe. But I still wear thigh high socks and cute comfy PJs when I'm at home.

The brand doesn't matter, you just have to look for specific items. You can even find clothes like these at a second hand shop, you just have to know what you are looking for. Do you like the colors? Then you don't need to focus so much on finding the exact same item, just look for an item in that color and in any cut/style. If you like the combinations of items in an outfit then look for a similar cut of item but any color. Do you get what I mean? It's more fun to try to mix and match outfits with various items than try to find a brand that will fit your exact aesthetic, which is almost impossible.
I really recommend shopping at a second hand shop although you all might laugh at me. I find more interesting stuff there (and cheaper) than in shops although the sizes are sometimes a problem

I'm trying to find a dress to wear to a wedding and fucking everything is either
- light pastels that are barely not white
- nude
- "millennial pink" (not a fan of this color, esp not on me)

Navy would be great, but guess what the bridesmaids are wearing?

On another note, if I ever get married, I won't give a shit what anyone else wears. Honestly. After reading all these rules about what women should and shouldn't wear to a wedding, I've devised a list of colors that are apparently OK:
- burgundy (not red omg can't upstage the bride!!)
- orange (but who wears orange)
- yellow (only bright yellow! or mustard! have fun looking like death warmed over)
- green (haha olive skin? go to hell)
- blue (not pastel blue, omg too light!!)
- purple
- pink (not too light!! photograph it first!)

does anyone have advice on where to get this type of trousers? in the uk if that makes a difference. i'm mostly into 40s & before and american styles more than british so actual pieces in good condition are hard to come by.

i've been living in leggings for years and before that i had terrible cutesy fashion sense so i basically don't know what the fuck i'm doing. i hate all the 'retro fashion' shops though because they're either horrible looking 50s reproductions for obese women or 60s onwards. i like the kind of masculine edge to a lot of bacall's outfits.

You can try charity shops and vintage stores (not retro repro shops,) but that may be time consuming.

honestly vintage fashion is kind to bigger sizes, its not like all women back then were tall and thin. keep in mind that shapewear was a thing for a majority of all vintage looks prior to the 70s, so nearly every woman has some kind of girdle and bra to give themselves a specific shape.

do your research, look beyond just what the actresses and models of the time were wearing, maybe look into some books on vintage fashion.

Spanx and similar type are pretty seamless under tight clothing. Anything made out of synthetic, smooth fabrics should be okay.

Some higher end lingerie brands make good shape wear if you like lace and trim. Sometimes I look at brands like Agent Provacateur and find dupes or wait for sales as I like how sensual some of their corsets and waspies are.

Unfortunately anything you buy that won’t ripple, pinch, or pucker can be expensive. Gift cards are your friend.

No. 110816

Only certain eras and styles. Fifties swing dresses, sure. A twenties gown or a wiggle dress on a larger size will look horrific.

Most genuine vintage garments are smaller, and there really weren’t many plus size ladies getting around in the world war rationing era. Regular larger sizes like an Australian 14 you may get but anything bigger will be hard to source. A 100kg woman would be shit outta luck for most anything other than a man’s coat.

Vintage clothing isn’t nearly as forgiving as modern interpretations of forties/fifties dresses. less or no stretch,

you're right to a point anon but whenever someone here thinks they are bigger or says they are chubby i take it with a grain of salt. most farmers have pretty big body image issues, i've seen girls called "fat" for just being above 100lbs. i doubt anon is 100kg. if you're within a healthy and normal BMI you'll be fine in most vintagewear. and i think wiggle dresses can look quite cute on a fuller figure. obviously this is a modern interpretation of a wiggle dress, most true vintage clothing is on the smaller side, but i don't think it looks too bad.

Well that pic is an example of what not to do. I think you can be perfectly “colorful” without dressing like a blind clown. Have outfits of 2 nicely contrasting colors at most (3 if accent).

fellow weebshit jfashion dresser here and this really isn’t the right place to ask for advice on this style, most anons here are former weebs or weebs in denial, they don’t like clothes like this.

my main advice to you would be look for people genuinely interested in Japanese fashion to take inspiration from, look at old issues of KERA magazine. Avoid Anzujamu, who only wears aliexpress watered down jfashion knockoffs. Avoid western jfashion imitation brands like lazy oaf and sugar thrillz. Get an idea of what colors and cuts look good on you and focus on building your wardrobe around that. No matter how good you look, some people are going to think you look like a mess no matter what and you’re just going to have to accept that and ignore snide comments.

I need your help with a pretty complex problem of mine.
Let's start with generalities, I am 25 years old, I kind of look younger, often people mistake me by a sophomore. I am 1.70, with ~70kg but still a nice body, wide hips and small waist. Overall I like my shape and would like to valorize it, but don't know how to do. When I dress "my age" I feel it ages me by a lot, I feel uncomfortable in feminine clothes with pastel or bright colours and I absolutely hate floral patterns and frills on me (kind of envy those who suit them well, though).
i like a lot the punkish-I don't know how to call the still in attached picture- style and hoboish stuff and I now it both fits my personality and I can look good and youthful in them.
Now that it is spring time again, I need to change my wardrobe and plan to give away a lot of stuff I no longer feel comfortable in or simply are worn out.

Thing is, I no longer know where to look to buy stuff I like, what to look for and I don't know where to find a list of items "to absolutely keep". I know which colours I like and fits me (which are black, white for exceptional summer wear, darker shades of green -such as emerald-, red and dark blues)
Another big, big, issue I always had was with trousers; I have big hips (which I came to hate because of stupid fashion made for slim girls) and an ass I really like, but jeans or trousers I own looks really awful on me, they add me way more weigh than I already do. Do you have any recommendation for which shapes, outftis or fabrics might suit my figure without looking like a pear? Do I have to commit only to long skirts? Which brands look at? Which tags should I look for when looking for inspiration or shopping?
Hope this is all and is clear enought for you to help me. I am truly desperate.

First off avoid anything that has a really big seam straight down the middle, cause that'll make you look like you have a camel toe even if you don't. The most important thing though is to make sure the pants actually fit. Most girls wear leggings that are way too small for them so they bunch up and/or stretch in the crotch area and create camel toe. Wearing a panty liner can also help smooth things out.

Where can you still get high quality clothes which aren't fast fashion tier? I have noticed that some places like Zara are pretty expensive, but still lacks in quality. Meanwhile the clothes my grandmother bought in the 80's are still in great condition and don't have sloppy stitching etc. They weren't even from top tier super expensive brands like Chanel or whatever.

No. 113532

You'd have to pay a bit more overall. In my experience you can get better quality clothing at a department store, but vintage/charity shops where I live usually only have grandma clothes from the 70s in huge sizes and shitty H&M nobody wants though I have friends who have found good stuff by browsing every day.

Uniqlo is good quality. They have nice basics but some of their clothes look really mumsy because of what's trendy in Japan (midi corduroy skirts, long wide trousers, oversized clothing, socks with peeptoe sandals and other weird shite like that).
H&M can go from terrible to surprisingly decent, I have some quality clothing from there. Touch and try on everything, see the fabric content, never order anything online, their thicker stuff like winter coats is usually going to be crap but the thinner clothing for spring is good. Their sister stores & Other Stories and COS have higher quality items with less annoying embellishments but are pricier as well.
Mango is usually nice, Zara can be good for some stuff but is usually dog shit.
Esprit is usually quality but you need to try on everything because where I'm from that's where middle aged aunties shop and it shows.

No. 113539

I used to love her style, but honestly lately she looks bland. Her outfits are unflattering to her body. I'm not sure she even considers fit or style when deciding on outfits because they look badly thought out, even on her instagram which also looks so soulless it's funny. Many of her outfits look indistinguishable, you can have a certain look and stick to it but Freddy's is just overall pretty boring. She just sees the colours beige, pink and white must have them.

Speaking of her personality I agree, she strikes me as the type to want to be seen as being quirky rich movie trope girl (by the interior of the rest of her house you can tell she was more likely lower-middle class until her YT fame). Also off-putting that she remarks on how poor/cheap/gross inexpensive clothes are when most her viewers are tween girls.

But that's just my honest (probably harsh) opinion. She is definitely pretty though and she does have some cute outfits. Overall her vibe is "boring" but I think because she over-does the same-y-ness of her looks.

No. 113685

not sure where you live but if superstars (or stan smiths) are still in in your are consider them bc they are really easy to clean w acetone so the fact they are white doesn't matter much.

white canvas sneakers like keds or converse or vans would look super cute but bit more difficult to clean so maybe consider another colour you'd get a lot of wear out of if that's a big minus in your books. i think vans also has some non-canvas slip ons? those could be easier to clean.

do not buy the ones you linked unless you want to look like either a freshman horsegirl going to her very 1st lecture or a stay-at-home mom to little Laykyyn and Nayvee, also they seem very overpriced for what they are.

obscenely long hair (not taken care of or strictly braided), those metal square glasses, dad's quarter zip fleeces or athletic jackets in overly saturated colours, navy jeans, dated looking trainers or boots, if you live near countryside then you know the type. basically is over 20 but still dresses like she did when she was 9 and jonas brothers were the biggest thing. nothing inherently bad, just the embodiment of frumpcure and it seemed like that was what you were trying to avoid.

honestly just observe what girls around you are wearing as some "fashionable" items are that very locally, if you see like 10 stacies wearing an item, can't go too wrong with it then you know? maybe stalk local "fashion influencers" IGs?

I'm having a hard time not hating my body. I'm skinny but I have no waist. Think Britney Spears but like, if she never worked out (skinny fat). The only recommendations are to wear flare or bootcut jeans (which are kind of out of style and tbh not my style), to avoid anything at the waist, and no crewnecks. I'm able to find dresses as I love floral dresses but I need more casual clothes like jeans and shorts. Anything high waisted is unflattering because I have no waist. Anything super skinny at the ankle is unflattering because my legs are kind of like upside-down triangles in that my thighs hold quite a bit of weight but my calves are super skinny.

So with my body type provided, how do I dress casual (not in dresses) and also get more of an hourglass shape?

Does anyone have any tips for wearing an oversized tshirt without looking huge when you're busty?

No. 113826

So, this might come off as a little harsh, but oversized clothing really does not look good on bustier/curvier people. Even very thin girls who are stockier because of height look silly in it. Boobs press out the shirt and take away the silhouette of oversized clothing is a meme trend anyway but I've seen bustier girls look good when wearing tighter underclothes (shirts, jeans, shorts, etc) paired with an oversight knit sweater or coat. Unfortunately oversized tshirts will look frumpy af if you have big boobies and that's just how the world works.

I agree it can look bad. I am somewhat busty and if I want to wear a loose t shirt like the pic you posted I will usually wear a super tight sports bra to flatten my tits out.

Also you could wear a flannel/jacket around your waist to define it. Or a cool belt like in pic related

No. 113837


imo oversized clothing looks super flattering on curvier/bustier women but only if it's a drapey/flowy type fabric. boxy silhouettes look fucking awful tho

No. 113839


This is my solution though I'm not very busy as I barely pass as a C cup. I just take two sports bras and double up. I put one on regular and the second one backwards to help make them look smaller for oversized shirts and it works out pretty well. It's not painful and it doesn't make me sweat, and technically I think you could put on more but I wouldn't really recommend it.

Anything that hangs off the busy makes you look much larger because there’s no waist definition. A bigger woman wearing a top that drapes off her bust or shoulders will look like a beanbag with some hose pipes sticking out. Make a waist.
Oversized looks cute on small people. If you’re busty or not thin, instant box-shape.

This, you've got to accept that shapeless-oversized is for flat skellies.
I'm not busty (but am broad in both shoulders and hips), and have found the tried-and-true tucking big shirts or sweaters into jeans looks cute still. Waist is indeed key if you're not a skinny banana.

What kind of shorts/jeans should I buy if my waist is non-existent and I'm basically straight up and down? High-waisted shorts and skinny jeans just bring attention to my rectangular shape but other types of jeans (bootcut, flare) and lowrise shorts aren't very cute imo.

I think ankle jeans that aren't super skinny kind of help but I'm petite and already have short legs, so I don't want to bring attention to that either. NO idea on shorts though. Would appreciate suggestions on both please!!

is buying a replica purse as tacky as it seems? i've been really wanting a chanel wallet on chain but they cost about $3000. you could buy a gently used corolla for about that much.

i've been browsing r/repladies and it seems that replica purses are getting to be much higher quality these days for about a tenth of the price. i kind of want one. but i wish i could get a version of it without the logo because i'm scared someone's going to ask me if it's a real chanel purse and i don't want to lie about something like this lol.

If you get a high quality one no one would be able to call you out

I mean, morally it's probably wrong, but whatever this world is shit

Look at a brand like rebecca minkoff, maybe, i'm sure they have similar designs for less $$

No. 114135

People absolutely will and do call you out, plenty of celebrities with money have Birkins and Chanel bags but it's still seen as a tacky way to flaunt your wealth, at least where I live. Brands like Coccinelle and Furla that are popular have very small logos and minimalistic design, LV and Chanel are too expensive and passé to be worth it.

They make replicas now that are near indistinguishable from the authentic ones, see: therealreal repeatedly selling reps that passed their authentication service. But like I said if you're poor it doesn't matter because it will be obvious that it's fake.

I think it's tacky if you're constantly wearing all designer and ugly sequined gucci shit all the time but a simple chanel or hermes bag isn't necessarily tacky, especially if vintage. I have a a few bags from Chanel and worn with the right outfit they look cute. 80% of people who wear them are tacky new money who should be saving their money instead of racking up credit card bills, tho.

No. 114142

You shouldn't be buying designer bags (or any non essential clothing item) unless the amount you're spending on them is negligible to you, and if you've recently come into money you absolutely shouldn't be spending money on handbags. Unless you know you have a very sizable nest egg you shouldn't be spending money on non essential luxuries.

Aside from new money, there are women out there who are saving for months for a bag and have 5 credit cards - how is that a smart financial move? There are absolutely newly rich instagram/youtube influencers are racking up monumental amounts of debt, or will eventually be forced to go into debt because they're incredibly short sighted and their "jobs" will inevitably fizzle out.

that isn't what new money means. why use terminology you don't understand?

No. 114148

Pretty sure you're the one who can't comprehend it.
New money = someone who has recently acquired their money. Which is literally what I explained In the first paragraph before going off on an aside in the second.

Many people who have recently become rich have no idea what to do with their money because they've been poor as fuck their whole lives. So instead of saving it or investing it, they live beyond their means and splash out (buying luxury handbags, cars, summer homes, PJs, etc.) but don't realize that their "fortune" can absolutely disappear in a short period of time with that kind of spending, especially if they have all of their eggs in one basket, hence why new money rarely becomes old money… many people like this do in fact go into debt to keep up appearances while they're inching slowly towards foreclosure and bankruptcy.

Ok, here's my recipe as someone who works in an office where I had to create an entirely business professional but casual versatile wardrobe from scratch.

Firstly, invest in a few good pairs of slacks, skirts of varying length, and blazers in the 3 main colors (black, grey, navy)

Also get a few colorful lightweight blazers for spring/summer (pink is always good)

Neutral cardigans are great because they are lightweight and can be dressed up or down depending on occasion. I have black, tan, and pink cardigans.

Get shitloads of shells (tanks) in all different colors, patterns and cuts. They are pretty cheap online from sites like Postmark or Threadup. If you have factory outlets near you those are pretty cheap as well. You can wear these with pretty much anything and look great under a blazer.

For jewelry, statement necklaces are a must. You can wear the same shirt twice in a week just by adding a statement necklace and swapping out for a different blazer/cardigan.

Shoes… not sure if you wear heels, but neutral and black heels with a pointed toe are a must. Casual flats with a pointed toe in black, tan, and navy are also good.

I avoid buying "trendy" office wear because you're buying seasonly expensive items with a potentially short lifespan. You can still look on-trend if you've got the right patterns going on. Plus, most of my wardrobe can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion, so you are not just spending money on something that has 1 purpose only.

Hope this helps!

i didn't even realize there'd be a dress code for a call center because majority of your job is just talking to people over the phone rather than talking to them face to face, you know?
i used to work in an office and there was one woman there who dressed in way too many layers you could tell she was uncomfortable because she got up from her spot the most and just moved around in her seat a lot more than other people.
i typically dressed in a some slacks, a blouse, and some nice slip ons. i'd carry the same cardigan with me just in case it got too cold. being overall comfortable will always be my biggest priority. if i tried on an outfit that looked really cute and professional, but i could tell i wouldn't last more than 3 hours wearing it, i'd revert back to looking for more slacks and blouses.

so weird, we could always wear whatever at call center because we wouldn't be in direct contact with customers anyways. In fact, there were a lot of muslim ladies working there because they were allowed to keep their scarfs on unlike many other work places.
The only fun thing about call center was that it was so casual and hating on the callers with the collegues.

No. 114729

Is rather be more casual as well but they said at the interview they’re like, fighting their staff to not wear shorts and flip flops to the office. Plus I’ve always had a sort of stuffy, overdressed vibe anyway. Not too uppity, just a line skirts and blouses or nice jeans and a camisole/cardigan.

Apparently they get clients and upper management in-office now and then and current staff dresses like shit. To be fair, I could smell three applicants during the first and second interviews but they could have just been deliberately bad interviews to stay on the dole.

I’ve been unemployed so long I really want to just get into management with the call center, keep my head down and get my money. Too close to thirty to be fussy over overdressing for the office, y’know?

Your mileage may vary, but as a college student with no money I've found good stuff in a lot of places. Also depends on what you like/your style.
Amazing basics and undergarments. Sometimes have very interesting clothes, but it mostly looks super mumsy which is what's trending in Japan right now.
I've found great stretchy jeans, shorts and underwear here, as well as some nice shirts. Quality can vary, can be a really good quality piece for a bargain or hot garbage. Never order online, always try on in person and touch to feel the material.
Same story as Uniqlo but more expensive.
Boxy Scandinavian style, sister brand of H&M. You can find many workable pieces but they're mostly very minimalistic.
>& Other Stories
Another sister brand of H&M. Slightly better quality than H&M but often comes with a markup, accessories and fragrances are nice, as well as some pieces on sale, otherwise not worth the full price.
Very girly, usually good quality but some of the clothes can be extremely tacky.
Used to be great but is now getting more and more "professional older lady" as time goes on, and the prices are rising. Nice trousers and some accessories.

I feel like I’m in this weird limbo where my tastes skew younger than my age group (late 20s but I’m still wearing like, trendy off shoulder crop tops with high waisted shorts or baggy pants with a loose shirt tucked in sort of thing), and I sometimes feel like I should elevate or dress more maturely, but I both hate and don’t look good in that business casual wear that young professionals tend to wear so I’m kind of at a loss. I’ve always dressed more weird and to whatever catches my fancy but it sometimes gets tiring or frustrating for people to not treat me as an adult or to not take me seriously because I dared to wear floral shorts and a cute top or something.

No. 116256

I think you're overthinking things. If you want to wear trendy clothes go ahead and wear them. As long as you dress appropriately for work literally nobody gives a fuck.

If you're uncomfortable wearing business casual/more formal clothing, wear a nice blouse with jeans and go from there. You can ease into that style and you'll learn to dress nicely for work without feeling like an idiot.

Also: this board is packed with people who are intimately familiar with niche Japanese fashions. The fashion advice you get here might not be the sort you're looking for. Might be best to just head to H&M, try on everything until you figure out what you like, and go from there.

I don't wanna reclaim nymphet/ddgl style like the autistic lolitas did with their pedo medieval kiddiewear or else it becomes an autistic circle jerk like l*lita.

I like silver hardware, especially zippers, I'd like the bag to be black as well. Canvas or another soft fabric is ideal but leather is ok too.

Sorry if this isnt the right thread (thought it was more related to fashion than youtube milk). What do you guys think of Internetgirl and her style bundles? I think it's a pretty cool concept, though obviously a bit flawed. I dont really watch her videos so I dont know a lot about her, but I really like watching videos of people unboxing her bundles (its relaxing I guess). Basically her fans can buy a 'bundle' and send her a description of their style and she'll choose a few outfits for them based on the description. Apparently a lot of her fans were disappointed in their bundles because she didnt 'get' their style or something. I understand why people would be upset if they paid $150 for clothes they didnt like, but also if you're asking her to style you shes not going to be able to read your mind especially if you like styles that she herself doesnt wear and isn't familiar with. Dont know if anyone is familiar with her/Youtubers who do similar sorts of things. Honestly I'm a bit curious as to what I'd get if I ordered a bundle because my style is a lot less 'girly' than her/a lot her viewers, but I dont think dropping $150 out of curiosity is worth it kek

Also a lot of her fans/herself seem to be the pseudo-goth/punk/grunge type where they use those labels interchangeably and think it's all about wearing fishnets and black lipstick… but that's neither here nor there.

i think some of your boho shit could work. students like teachers with a flowy style, it's not too obnoxious if you get what i mean. just make sure you find some super comfy shoes and don't wear anything too suffocating. since you're on a budget, don't be afraid to take a look in some thrift stores. i've found amazing outfits in tip top shape, even items with tags still on them.

I agree with other anon that thrift stores are the way to go for staples like blouses and skirts. Literally all my skirts are second hand.
As for recs from a fellow Leaf, personally I've bought most of my non-thrifted shirts from the sales rack in Suzy Shier. I'm sure their shirts will accommodate a short woman with a larger bust since I have a wide ribcage and shoulders and they often fit just fine. Honestly even in other more "youthful" and casual stores like Ardene I've found sweaters on sale that pass well as professional. It's just a matter of looking.

As for non-skirt bottoms, maybe take up even hand sewing when it comes to pants so you can at least hem them.

i take a lot of inspiration from men's fashion. women's fashion seems really complicated to me, and most days i can't be bothered. that said, i'd like advice on getting started with a more femme/'cute' take on my usual aesthetics.

big influences for me include rick owens (even tho i can't afford that shit), random people i see at local punk shows, and 2010 nu-goth shit, because my tastes have not changed since i was 15, which is probably bad. favorite brand is actual pain.

if you don't want to do the neon look, i'd look at some of madonna's 80s outfits. a decent bit of them actually still hold up pretty well today if you take away some of the accessories.

No. 120466

I think going for a look a la Madonna like the other anon suggested is a good idea, or try looks that you'd see in fashion magazines. You could even look at music videos for ideas as well. It's way more than tacky neon stuff. I'm into 80s fashion as a regular style expression, and find that to be kind of fake looking the same way that 20s costume flapper stuff is. I like the tacky shit and really dated stuff too so take my advice with a grain of salt.
Make sure you do your hair up in an appropriate style and it'll really make the whole outfit look more 80s. I tend to like pairing a loose shirt or shirt/coat with shoulderpads with a thinner bottom half like a miniskirt, pants, etc. I strongly recommend looking at actual stuff from the 80s like films, Vogue, anything, to get more inspiration for looks. Some of it, esp from Vogue, will be really silly looking, but you'll find something. A dress or skirt with a peplum can be spiced up into something 80s, if you have one, as those were quite popular. Leotards/bodysuits can be layered with a matching skirt or high-waisted jeans. There was also a resurgence in 40s styles that you can implement into your look, as long as it looks more 80s than 40s. Remember as well that you can look outside the mainstream and do more 80s goth or punk looks, if you're into either. Doing a preppy or yuppie look may be fun for laughs, although not all of it is very flattering.
For accessories, big hoops, big plastic jewelry, lots of bangles, etc, all work well and are easy enough to find. If you have time and cash to spare, thrift stores are really easy for this.
I would really emphasize the contrasting tight and baggy or boxy clothes because I've found that's a very easy way to make an outfit look 80s but still flattering compared to the really loose and boxy shit, and doing your hair up in a flattering but still 80s style.
Have fun! I know I just wrote a shitload for you to read, but I really love 80s aesthetics, and I think it's a fun period in style to work with once you get past the really ugly frumpy stuff and outlandishness. It's just a little hard to suggest specifics to you without knowing what you usually like or your haircut, face and body type, etc.

Does anyone know the name of collars that look like this? Sort of boxy?
Also if anyone has advice on what a round-faced girl should wear pls tell me. I've been wearing turtle necks but I recently realized it actually makes me look rounder. I'm not chubby or anything, 17bmi, but my face is just REALLY round.

think it’s just called a square neckline, or square neck shirt

They were really popular last year so it shouldn't be so hard to find in any store.

Otherwise, why don't you do what Ashley did here and do a quick cheap alter to a thrifted item?

Can someone suggest some other blogger or styles that are similar to this? I really like Faiiint's outfits since they're dark but still appropriate for work.

I love alternative stuff and am an altfag myself but it can be difficult to find "influencers" or whatever that don't basically wear "costumes" constantly.

No. 120774

you consider this alternative? It's just black clothes. The whole outfit is bad, everything clashes and the bag and sneakers are the worst, maybe that's mean but you'd do best without taking inspo from this "style" tbh

No. 120805

That vagina top is the worst for me. But yeah the bag and sneakers, wtf. Runners, a 2005 bag, jeans, and a work blazer huh

No. 120867

I was gonna say this yesterday but didn't wanna shit on anon for needing inspo for allblack outfits that make the model's legs stubby lol. She really put whatever was not in the wash and called it a day. And that ugly bag…

Anons im having a crisis, i hate 90% of my wardrobe, being somewhat petite and careful with the things i own i still have all my highschool clothes in a near perfect state and totally wearable, but i just feel uncomfortable wearing them in my 20s while not quite childish they are pretty much 14 years old age appropiate, high necklines, knee lenght everything, I want to feel more "womanly" per se, sexier.
I have an edgier rocker girl ish style if that helps.

No. 120996

You don't have to wear skimpy clothes to feel womanly. Check pinterest for ideas.

No. 121002

>high necklines and knee length
Damb, that's what I wear now and I'd refer to my style as granny-ish. I guess old age really is like a second childhood or something…

I feel like edgy fashion is super easy to transform into being "sexy" though? Maybe just go for more form fitting pieces, and also shop around for ideas like >>120996 suggested. If replacing your whole wardrobe is a financial issue, then slowly selling parts of it here and there can aid in affording new outfits.

No. 121025

Slightly off topic, but how do you let go of old clothing? I'm now in the process of decluttering my wardrobe and I've caught myself still keeping some things I'll never wear again anyway. I asked my friends if they want to keep some of the stuff before I throw it out completely and that kinda helped.

No. 121026

I came here to ask the samequestion!
so far I have thrown out :
Things that have an unremovalble stain or rip no matter how small, things that have faded in color, things I haven't worn in 1+ year, things that don't fit my style anymore.
Yet there's still so much, I'm having a hard time letting go of the things I decluttered. The ones I am giving to friends and family are easier to get rid of, because it doesn't feel like I'm "losing" them if someone I love is using them. But the ones I'm going to donate to strangers and the ones I have to throw away feel like such a waste, and it makes it even harder to get rid of more clothes and shows

do you have a textile recycling facility or bin nearby?


No. 121032

Something I do is put everything I don't think I want anymore in bags and bring it over to the attic (or any other hard(er) to reach place). If a long period of time goes by and I literally forget about the clothes that's a pretty big sign to me I can now easily get rid of them without the fear or regret.

No. 121033

Replace some of your knee-length bottoms with really well-fitting skinny jeans (preferably high-waisted) and shorter skirts, ta-da. High necklines are super chique and womanly imo.

No. 121034

I think you should ask your hairdresser for a haircut that flatters/slims your face tbh

This is a shot in the dark but I need help finding a specific top and I don’t even have a picture of it lmao! It’s a white halloween themed cropped peasant style top. I saw a girl on tiktok wearing it with black shorts and jack-o-lantern creepers, she has dark hair and tattoos too. Some of her other posts are tattoos she’s done on other people. This is so vague but I NEED that top in my life

what is this kind of fashion called? and what's a good store to buy these kind of simple basic items?

Basic bitch athleisure. It’s not even a style it’s just what’s comfortable, cheap, and black from Kmart.

it’s kind of like korean streetwear i think, some good places to buy stuff like that are mixxmix (kinda pricey but really great quality) yesstyle and aliexpress. you can also just type in “korean street fashion” and you’ll see a few shops that sell that kind of stuff but the three i suggested i can vouch for in terms of quality

No. 121290

I rock this style.
And by this style I mean I don't know what to wear so I only wear basics.

Go to your nearest h&m and you should find a basic section.

congratz you've just become a walking advertisement for LV for a grand total of $2000.

In all seriousness, I'll never understand the hype around clothing and accesoiries plastered in obnoxious logos. Why'd you wanna PAY to be FREE advertisement for a brand and on top of that wear the brand's image instead of your own?

I used to watch "luxury" youtubers and hilariously they all regularly complained about the quality of their LV/Chanel/Dior/etc. bags and accesories. If they bothered to look beyond the big names they could buy themselves really nice bags that are far superior in quality in the same (or lower if you wanted) price range.

No. 121326


It does “fit” i guess because it’s so basic but I was just wondering what people wear with bags that they may have that are similar. It’s a basic bucket bag but I’m not very stylish. My parents gifted it to anyways


Meh. This was my first LV and I agree that the pattern that is “LV” is tacky in its own way but I don’t mind it too much. None of my other bags are as gaudy in terms of branding imo, and I did want this

Quality wise a bag like this isn’t “worth” the money because you can buy quality for much less. No leather (besides I guess like specialities) or basic hardware costs thousands of dollars.

It’s all name and yeah sure, quality In “high end” bags can be amazing as well but price doesn’t equal quality after a certain price po
