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?

Any fashion savvy anon knows what this style is called?
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 would like to know so I can find people who like it as well on insta. In the pic the shirt and accessories are over the top compared to what I mean but I couldn't find anything else.

I'm having real trouble finding relatively affordable clothes that I want to buy.
I'm looking for things that are interesting, architectural, monochromatic.
Brands like Noctex, Nuit Atelier, older Allsaints stuff. Basically gothninja/ strega.
Looking for Korean brands in particular, I found this one called Ultra Modern on Yesstyle but no more so far.
Can anyone help this noob?

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.
This was helpful
your friend sounds like a cunt.
it could be hourglass depending on your shoulders/ upper body.

Basic gyaru uniform
It’s a terrible style then. Early 2000’s style
clothes that don’t match. Cant are those boots looking nice with anything and the dress is just awkward as hell. >>73029
fungus shoes. >>74316
Even if her clothes actually fit her this outfit is pretty lame. The bagginess of those leggings looks so bad
Clothes that are clean, well fitted, modern, and aren’t covered in tacky embellishments like slogans, logos, studs, no cutesy useless accessories, interesting and bold shapes, monochrome,
Maison margiela, Ann demeulemeester, couple Rick owns bits, yohji Yamamoto, I like loads of stuff just not things that fit badly, or don’t coordinate at all.
Also the fungus shoes are cool. Fungus isn’t a negative. >>74342
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.

i wasn't expecting to read this here! I actually just ordered a Margiela sweater, boots, and some ann d boots to add to my collection, what a surprise.
Sometimes I get into the loop of wearing cheap clothes like brandy melville or urban outfitters, and then I go out shopping and see other people wearing high fashion and immediately feel inferior. I'm just donating most of my cheap clothes now.
The tabi boots yessssss!! Vintage Dior is really something special too, like the ‘new look’
I absolutely love high fashion and couture too but you’re never inferior for not wearing it!
I’ve taken up sewing and pattern making to have the wardrobe I really want, it’s a good hobby and if you’re willing to learn everything you wear could be couture.
You can find some nice pieces at thrift stores
A good tailor really helps, and is often times cheaper than buying your size directly from the brand
Sure, Dollskill is cool if you want to spend twice the money than buying direct from the manufacturer
I'd rather trust an Instagram shop claiming that same top you saw on Aliexpress is totally one of a kind

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
this is what im dealing with, basically, but i'm a bit thinner, though my legs are bigger than hers so i look even worse

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.

All mine do except one. >>78118
What sort are you wearing that make your waist look thin? In my experience, they don't cling to your skin so they go from your boobs to your hips in a straight line instead of curving inwards.
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.

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.
Some aspects of this style are represented in korean and japanese "office lady" dresses. I don't think it is intrinsically frumpy, but having a certain body type and the right makeup will help a lot.
What things do you like about the style? Did their dresses have pockets? (I suspect not, but I didn't google)
File: 1525301772962.jpg (36.67 KB, 542x800, default.jpg)
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. https://www.iwm.org.uk/history/how-clothes-rationing-affected-fashion-in-the-second-world-warhttps://www.express.co.uk/life-style/style/672724/wartime-fashion-rationing-World-War-II-clothes-1941
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.

I've worn these for dressing up as a pirate in larp. Please don't combine these with ugly regular jeans like in the pic.

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.
AliExpress, I'm 5'0" and everything seems to fit.
Otherwise you could try children's clothes (not joking, I fit 11yrs+).

Not that anon, but how? You realize she said skirts right? Almost all tasteful skirts fit around the waist. If not, you get shit like this.

in my opinion, high waist is the way to go especially if you are petite. it optically lengthens your legs. low/mid-rise clothing can easily make your legs look short. it can look nice but you need to have a certain body type to pull it off imo.

anyone have recs on thigh high boots?
ive always wanted to get some but i dont want to shell out 120$ on a pair unless i know its highly rated. id prefer to go for much lower price since I think I just want to start off with plain black high heeled boots.
Some outfit inspo would also be highly appreciated as I want to make this my look in the fall. I always dress in gym clothes because I'm lazy and find it easier than bringing clothes with me all day before I hit the gym but I'd like to change that. I want to look like a proper lady, but have no idea where to put my cash.
Should I just do a fashion nova binge? (Sorry if this is all over the place fuck)

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)
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.
File: 1532190323910.png (221.62 KB, 1080x1920, Screenshot_20180721-122340.png)
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
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!

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. I recently got this dress from Mango and it makes me look way more feminine and actually my age. Does someone have recommendations on where to get similar styled clothes? 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

What do you guys think of this playsuit? Do you find it cute? Ugly? Does it look too much like labia?
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.

I'd take some cues from the 90s with the tight top, loose/baggy pants combo for a more figure flattering look.
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>>89382
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
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.
File: 1534717701361.jpg (80.78 KB, 1024x580, yin-yangscale_zps75e7ea63 (1).…)
It is indeed a theory. You can google it. It's by David Kibbe and the book is called Metamorphosis. It is about understanding forms, yin and yang.
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."
i'm actually kind of excited about finding out about this. i could never tell how feminine or masculine i read and this clears it up very well.
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

Yes! Unfortunately the most information you can find online is for women but you can find some interesting stuff for men too. I recommend reddit of you have some questions because they are really active and helpfulhttps://www.reddit.com/r/FeminineNotFeminist/?utm_source=amp&utm_medium=post_header

You can also look for outfit ideas in pinterest btw if you know your bfs type
ah ok that makes sense
i found these descriptionshttp://expressingyourtruth.net/style-men/
"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.

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?

if anyone finds hunting for clothes online fun, i really want a dress exactly like this in black. i know this actual dress is from trashy diva, but i'd like to find a cheaper version as i know i've seen similar dresses before. i'll post again if i find one.
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.

Take it somewhere else. Anon asked for a coat, not your morals.
They’re just asking for a coat not freaking out over fur.
There’s vintage and inherited fur pieces out there, and fur is a nice extra to managing invasive rabbits in Australia. The market isn’t entirely black and white. Anon just wants a coat.
Imo the better choice is felt treated with scotch guard in a classic cut like a princess coat or a tailored trench coat. Lighter, less bulk, really warm. If it’s really freezing something lined with fleece with tighter fitting sleeves.
Faux fur is made of plastic, which is way more harmful for the environment (AND a ton of your pwecious animals)
second hand real fur >>>>>>>>> new real fur >>>>>>>>>> faux fur

My twenties are starting to creep out and
"Dressing my Age" really bothers me, not in a womanchild way but "Mature" clothes just look absurdly unflattering on me, blazers, office trousers, almost every dress that doesnt have a bit of a Poof, i just look like someone's kid trying their aunt's clothes, even with petite sizes it just looks
I personally enjoy the way i dress alot but i cant help but feel pressure to change as i grow older.
Theres no workplace dresscode or stuff like that since im a baker so its just about social situations
Im 5´1 and around 110 lbs, just overall very petite and girlish in body
Style is a bit like pic related, i always end up getting compared to cassie from skins style-wise
Her outfits were so bad and so deliberately quirky! and different! and ugly.
Love yourself anon. She was dressed like a kindergarteners art project.

i guess pic related would be a better example, i do own quite a few items from the same brand
That’s adorable, and so much better than Cassie. She’s a mish mash of random garments, the outfit you posted is much more mature and sane.
Quirky can be good, based bug anon was excellently quirky. It’s when it’s forced that it sucks.

Anyone else just brand hoes for certain brands? Which ones?
I fucking love Lazy Oaf. It's cute and delightfully tacky. Just bought pic related. Now I can dress up like it's Halloween erryday.
Lazy oaf occasionally has a cool piece but that jacket is shit. The bones aren’t even cute.
(I’m a massive wanker who still likes rick Owens and Margiela so my opinion is worth dick lol) If it makes you happy wear it until it’s falling apart.>>100687
A bug brooch means you have bedbugs and roaches in your purse and hair, apparently. Anons are mental.
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.

Understood, anon. I am just a magnet for bad tacky shit. I can't help it. I always get roasted eveytime I post about it on /fa/ lmao. I love Tricky Ricky as well. Wanted to cop a pair of memebaskets.
I also own this fluffy Lazy Oaf kitty sweateru~
I hate it so much but I hope you love it.
People are too antsy over what other people wear. If you like tacky shit, revel in it. It looks fun at least, which is better than another safe combo from Pinterest with a million identical outfits walking around the city.
I’ve got a treasure trove of tacky brooches and Bakelite bangles. Uglier than sin and so much fun. Best one is a big orange Bakelite parrot. Size of a fist and shiny.
At least it’s an interesting and personal style even if I dislike it. Boring is far worse than a fluffy jumper or silly prints.
Nothing really, more pointing out that I’m a basic bitch with really basic taste (at least by the standards of /fa/ they’d roast me as hard as anon gets roasted for lazy oaf)
There’s nothing wrong with liking any clothes.

Not to me! personally I really enjoy pairing lingerie-esque items with a pair of high waisted jeans or a skirt to make it more casual.
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.

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.
Pic related would unironically be my ideal…

thank you anon! it’s one of my favorite clothing brands, glad to hear i’m not alone on this site.
if you don’t mind me asking, what’s your opinion on this piece? it’s one of the cutest ones imo but also one of the items i’m the most worried about being considered childish, regardless of styling.
again i suppose i could use it as loungewear if nothing else but $49 for something to just lazying around in at home seems a bit much…

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.
sorry if my english sucks but i hope this helps.
>>101309>not wanting to bring attention to hips
Why? That's an aesthetically pleasing trait on women.
wtf the fuck
I highly agree with this anon.
Personally I have a very similar body shape to you, and those denim a-line skirts look hideous on me as my hips stick out waaay too much.. it looks weird. I imagine there would have a similar result on you.
Soft fabric a-line skirts are the way to go like anon mentioned. If your height is shorter than average, midi length a-line skirts worn on the waist will make you look amazing.

I hope this is the right place to ask this, I'm saging it anyway. I've recently taken an interest in fashion, I'd say in "Haute Couture", but I know absolutely nothing about fashion, so I'm not even sure it's actually "haute couture" I'm into. It's just "not everyday fashion" I'm talking about (pic related is what I'm looking for). Could anyone recommend me where/how to go looking for more of this kind of, uh, pictures ? I draw for a living so they make great inspiration.
heyyy that's a really nice pic! thanks for your time anon, ill definitely try it out (also your english doesn't suck!)>>101434>>101483
it's cool if you like your hips anon lol like >>101437
said, i just dont like mine, no hate to big hips in general>>101474
im 5"10'ish, so lets hope they work for tall people too haha but yea denim skirts only work for me if they're super stretchy, and i usually end up covering them with a long shirt anyway

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.
also spend some time browsing thefashionspot forums. i wish there were more spaces for women to talk about high/non-fast fashion and avant-garde designer stuff, tbh.
attached pic is from a 1986 mugler show.

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
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.
reformation isn't worth the price
source: I have a bunch of shit from there with holes
I would start by googling "shirred mini dress" or "square neck mini dress" to see if anything comes up. you could also search on poshmark/depop to see if anyone is reselling. topshop or asos might have similar dresses too
Thank you both!
I see where you're coming from first anon… but reformation stuff isn't actually that good quality LOL. They say they're sustainable and charge a huge bunch but at the end of the day the fabric is still coming in cheap from china.
I will search what you've suggested anon #2 :)
Sorry for responding 8 days late anon, I like it for the most part. I'm not too big on animal graphics on shirts but if you wear it similar to what that girl has I think it's fine. Have some matching pink/purple hair pieces.
Honestly, at the end of the anon-chan wear shit that makes you happy. For 49 buck bitch u wear that shit out of that sweater outside

alright help, how to dress when you have absolutely no hips? Pic related is me, for reference I'm 5'6" so not short.
My boobs aren't exactly small either, so with my lack of hips or ass I feel like it makes me look really unbalanced.
I’m 5’6” and “top-heavy” too.
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.
Holy shit wow
Have you found smth similar u like? asking for a fren
I have the same stats(except my chest is 2 inches smaller, but it used to be bigger)
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?
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

Try boyfriend fit jeans, anon. They're a more loose, casual look but not frumpy.https://www.currentelliott.com/what-are-boyfriend-jeans>Borrowed from the boys, the boyfriend jean cut involves a slouchy, relaxed fit, as if they were actually his but tailored for her. By understanding the history of the boyfriend jean, women can learn the evolution of this cut and how these jeans should be worn for a menswear-inspired, yet feminine look.

Im not happy with the image people have from me with my clothes.
Don't get me wrong, I absolutely love my wardrobe, it took me a long time to curate it (also because poor), its pretty much Spring Vintage with 00s and 90s influences.
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.
Should i ditch my yellows and pinks to try to fit in? Try to go uwu sadbbygurl nicole dollanganger? Screw everyone but accept my hard time fitting in with my "crowd"
Ikr, but I like the feminine look and the "metaller" look, it just depends on the day. I don't know if you would be confortable, but you don't have to commit totally to one style or use just one style in an outfit.
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.

I am also like you but I think it's really cool when someone dresses unlike you would expect them to based on their interests.
If you want to be more edgy you can check out Larme fashion, sometimes it's all about pretty pastel dresses but sometimes it's more dark like this.
File: 1546798592320.jpg (68.67 KB, 513x513, 20190106_101557.jpg)
Anon I love these looks. I don't know anything about Japanese (?) fashion. Is there a certain subculture of Larme that is dark like that? How do I search it to find more? Pic related calls it "urban goth larme", is that legit? Tytyty!
File: 1546807687870.jpg (152.89 KB, 920x1380, 7a60a809052835f8bd9282d711bd0a…)
Sorry if not quite on topic, but can anyone ITT make their own clothes? How did you get started? I really hate the clothes I find in stores today, and I don't have the money to have them made or buy couture.
Anon I feel you.. I go to a lot of punk/psychobilly gigs and my friends dress to that genre. I just stand out so much and always look like I don't belong there.
This might be the reason I'm always insecure of how I dress. I'd like to be more interesting looking but I love the minimalistic look also. Sigh.
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.

I'm 26 and work a government related office job with a business casual dress code that leans more towards casual than business. I really, deeply love twee fashion but I know it's not really looked upon favorably in fashion communities. Is there anyway to make it look more age appropriate?
Had the same problem, just switched to a darker palette and smaller prints.
More dark green and burgundy, no more cutesy prints like bunnies or deer. Classic styled jewelry, plain leather bag.
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.
Thanks, anon. Will definetly look into these pieces.
I think a huge mistake I used to make in winter is using jeans or pants that make your legs even thicker instead of going for thighs that usually slim our figures

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?

Where the hell can I find more casual, simple dresses in the cut like pic related? I mean, every site I go to is littered with some goofy ass bottom hem, asymmetrical something, or has weird, unflattering sleeves. It's even hard to find a simple kimono sleeve that doesn't look completely ugly or has any of the above listed added to it. I need some site/shop recommendations. I'm in dire need of dresses for the upcoming spring and summer.
To make things harder, petites ONLY please!

I appreciate the enthusiasm! It’s interesting trying to find myself (fashion wise) in a foreign country, but these give me a lot of inspiration and ideas to incorporate into my wardrobe. I’ve always been a creepy/girly type of girl, so this might be something to delve into. It’s honestly kinda nice to shop in France, the clothing quality is heaps better than what I’m use to in burger land.
I'm so glad you liked them and got some inspo. So did I whist making them tbh so ty for that fellow creep-girl!>the clothing quality is heaps better than what I’m use to in burger land.
Ugh so jealous. I walked into Kohl's to make an Amazon return and I was actually pissed at how absolutely shitty eveything was. Not that Kohl's is the bastion of quality but it's so gross. Anything decent costs hundreds and even then it might be cheap bullshit. I feel like more and more is taken away quality-wise every year from products and fashion in general and it makes me so mad.
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
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.

Is there a way to avoid looking "frumpy" in modest clothing when your face is ugly?
I dress like pic related with some variance (basic idea is always a long sleeve tucked into a long skirt though), but I'm not nearly as cute or willowy. Thing is I feel even worse in things that are popular where I live now, like athleisure and "art hoe" 80's shit (I'm basically diet amerifag btw, Canadian).
Should I just suck it up and accept that I'll always look dweeby no matter what? Or is there some way I can make the outfits look a bit more elegant?

Love your outfit. The vest says "Let's have lunch" but the culottes say "You're paying".
For real though, what type of environment would you wear this in? What's your everyday style like? Would you want to dress it up classically, or down in a modern/trendy style? Let's try to style it! It really is a nice suit. What's the brand? How much did you snag it for? What's the fabric content?
I was planning to wear it for a school event where everyone is in formal/business clothing. Most of the girls at my school dress really cute, so I wanted to try for once. My everyday style is very boring with mostly dark colors. I try to blend in as much as possible. But I wanted to make a change recently and wear brighter colors.
I wouldn't mind more of a modern style for it. I don't want to look super formal.
The brand is Ann Taylor, cotton material, and I got it for $10. I would like to wear it, I just haven't allowed myself to wear noticeable/flashy colors, so I have no idea what to add onto it and how to avoid looking tacky.
Imo go for neutrals or white.
The suit itself is bold and doesn’t need much.

Is there anything that can make big broad shoulders and rib cage look smaller? I’m an inverted triangle and I desperately hate it and even losing quite a bit of weight did not help.
I'm going to see The GazettE, I guess they're classed more as visual kei which is why I was stuck on ideas. But you're right about the sweaty mess thing so I'll probably just aim for something simple but dark >>106503

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.
Runway: worn on the runway.

Fashion is a hard place to be in good luck
I went to fashion school for a year (out of two)
I had zero drawing and sewing skills, and basically learnt everything there from the beginning. Turns out I hated everything except pattern creation, so i quit. Up to this day, that one year of pattern creation has been extremely helpful for everything fashion related. I basically see flat clothes and immediately know what they will look like on any type of body.
Only like 5% of the students get an actual job in the field. Most of them just do it because they like sewing. There's also the rich kids who get clothing lines funded by their parents, but i don't count those as real jobs. It's a field where connections and pre-existing money matter more than talent.

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.
For example something like pic related, but the dress I have has a bit more definition/cinching around the waist (and I would wear dark long sleeves under it, and boots and tights since it's winter here).

Dress looks more like this but the buttons are black and only on the bust.
that dress is a little too dressy imo
the whole point of >>106892
is the casual slip dress look
Am I the only one tho thinks the nightie over a T-shirt and sneakers looks like shit?
It’s everywhere and it always looks like they got dressed in the dark.
Just go for it anon. Fuck people if they think you're overdressed. Although I doubt that will happen, more likely is that you'll get compliments for the effort. Maybe some stares though.

What can I accessorize with pictured?
I really enjoy the basic blacks with the bold belt. However, I’m hopeless when it comes to hand bags and jewelry - so any help is appreciated.

This was fun lol
I think silky cami tucked in to dark wash jeans with pointed boots is a good look for this.
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.
It’s -15 C roughly. Covered head to toes, unfortunately.

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.
I'm starting to regret leaving so much of my wardrobe back at my childhood home now lol. I still have some stuff, but I'm still so freaking conflicted. I'm gonna try to get a few more wears out of what I have at least! Thanks Anon!>>107335

Now you got me googling this, they really do have cute outfits in that show. >>107390
is right just wear it why even ask?
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 don’t understand how a human being can not know how to buy a jacket. Have you spent your life naked or having someone else purchase things for you?
You don’t even have to stand up you can just google ‘tennis skirt’ and ‘denim jacket’ and buy them.

Please don’t do this to yourself
If you’re really going to try this look please ditch the tights at least and at most skip the dye job
Everything about that hair style says “trashy, attention seeker, and unemployable”
If you really want two toned hair, maybe try an undershade of blonde

skip the dye job, replace the tights with plain ones. That style of docs is hard to pull off with shorts unless you have long, skinny legs so keep that in mind.
i'm underweight so it's ok. i wear them with ripped jeans right now.>>108530
alright, ill ditch the tights bud. and ill keep the undershade thing in mind>>108543
Nah go the whole hog and wear those kitty tights. There’s no point trying to make a ‘15 y/o at my first concert’ look more mature. Tights and shorts always look silly and overly casual so why not embrace the silly and wear the cat tights. It’s a childish look so it’s weird to try and age it up.
You’re like 18, dress in the embarrassing stuff now.
This shit is more like 13 instead of 18. I wouldn't have worn any of this in my late teens at all, it's definitely a good time to get a feel for better aesthetics and mature looks but I know some people are just helpless.>>108522
Whats with the 2011 lady gaga hair and hell boy shirt and ripped jeans
Naww anon I was trying to be kind to kitty-tights-chan. Heaps of adults just dress like kids all the time now. Maybe it’s a small town thing but it seems to be all over shit like Instagram as well.
All the cutesy slogans and cartoons. God help you criticise them even itt though. Thirty year old women in adventure time tops race to call you the fun police who wears grandmas twinsets.
Am I the only one who doesn't see what's wrong with this? Looks quite cute. I get the hair is a bit out there, but other than that it's just a normal outfit.
Where do you guys live that this garners such strong reactions?
It’s not that it’s bad or unusual imo, it’s just extremely young and not particularly inspired. It’s a look that makes me say “yeah and? We all remember 2006.”
The tights and shirts combo always looks awkward and it’s just not very interesting.
It’s not bad and anon isn’t going to look like shit. They may even look good in the outfit. It just feels..eh.
I'm trying to find a dress to wear to a wedding and fucking everything is either
- light pastels that are barely not white
- "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!!)
- pink (not too light!! photograph it first!)
No metallics, no light pastels, nothing too lacy (omg it's not your wedding), nothing too shiny, nothing too glittery or sexy. No all black, it's not a funeral, anon!

Idk if you wear prints but try to find something like a cute floral dress. That way, even if the main/background color is a light pastel, it won't read as too light. I'm assuming the wedding is in spring/summer right?
It's my cousin's wedding. I'm not in the bridal party, and I'm not bitter about it. The navy dresses I've found look a bit bridesmaid-esque and I don't want anyone to have the wrong impression.
It's first week in April, so that weird in-between winter/springtime. Wedding at 5pm and I assume based on the dress code that I need to get a cocktail-length or longer dress. I like the two dresses posted above, but I'm not sure those are right for an evening wedding. (are they?)
Grey silk is a nice thought. I like grey.

these two just look like black clothes from normie stores with some gothy acsessories. the first one is just a black top, black mini, black tights. I've seen items similar to the mesh top in the second image on boohoo, fashion nova, etc. Just go on a normie online store, even somewhere like f21 or asos and filter things by colour or search for key words. >>109254>>109255

i've really fallen for a certain kind of vintage fashion. unfortunately, i'm short and quite pear shaped so i'm losing weight before i actually attempt anything like pic related.
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. (though not all are good.)
i have no desires to look costume-y, but i love these kind of silhouttes

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. https://www.net-a-porter.com/us/en/Shop/Lingerie/Shapewear

Looking for some inspiration for the Shopify store I’m building as well as a small section in a boutique in Los Angeles. I’m building on an urban grunge chic for ages 18 to 34. Here are some inspiration for outfits and accessories but if you guys have brands I should be eyeing let me know what you think.
thanks you two. it's also nice to know someone else is wearing this style, makes me feel goofy.
and i'm not bigger as such, just extremely pear shaped (thighs bigger than waist) and i don't think it helps me pull of the look being so extremely shaped.
what do you think of bullet bras? i honestly love the shape they give. i know they're super weird now but it's a look
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.

How does one dress Cute and Colorful without looking like a Jillian Vessey Trainwreck?
“Looking my age” isnt really a concern because i just look like a kid playing dress up in ”adult clothes” (im 5’1 and underweight)
also my job area is 97% home office so thats not a problem either.
wear stuff that fits and
flatters your body. i cannot stress these things enough. people like kelly eden and jill look bad because they wear stuff that doesn't fit or flatter them, that's why they both look aged as if they're wearing baby clothes.
Good point about anon likely not being as big as they think. Also good point on a wiggle dress. A bit of shapewear at any size helps but they do look fantastic. Wrap dresses too. >>110938
Pick a couple of colours, and pair them with neutrals. Don’t wear an all pink outfit with frilly accessories, wear nice jeans, the top, cute sneakers, and a feminine bag. Maybe a pink or blue sweater.
Take one or two elements of the ridiculous clown gear and pair them a normal outfit

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.

most jfashion models are small and underweight too and manage to pull off heels sand skirts fine, but my main point was just using an example of jfashion from japan, not watered down weeby Instagram stuff.

kitty tights chan back at it again if anyone remembers me - decided against dying my hair half blonde if anyone is curious.
here are my shameless recent cops
Solid hair colour will look better with what you wear imho
And if it's any consolation I think most your clothes are rather cute.
++ I like your care-free attitude tbh! More people should try it.
i aspire to be as unapologetic wrt slightly tacky clothing choices (not a backhanded compliment, i love your shit just that it's how society in general sees it), i used to be more carefree when i was like 14 but have grown more afraid to stand out as i have gotten older, I'm not even that old (22) and the thought of me missing out on wearing shit i like bc I'm afraid of anyone thinking i look odd or whatever makes me quite sad. soz for the blogpost
in short, you go, kitty tights chan, the hello kitty shit is very cute!
nta after you grow up a bit more you'll give even less of a fuck than you used to!
a woman who wears hime-kei/hime-kaji to work.
i mean i can't wait to be like 60 bc then all of the societal pressures of looking acceptable just go out the window it seems and in general older ladies are just hard as nails, love that! but hopefully i'll reach that point sooner haha
thank you based anon for replying, you sound very cool!
I’m 28 and I recently said fuck it and started wearing tacky and edgy clothes. Don’t care about what people think anymore, just want to wear what I always wanted to. >>110972

I got mine at H&M and they're really good.
If I could make my own brand I'd make affordable, high quality alt-fashion. A lot of focus on wearable goth stuff. I love the victorian style but it's just not for me.
I'd also make sure to have a good range of plus size items, I used to be fat, and not being able to dress how I liked SUCKED.
sorry for minor blogpost
Vintage (30's-60's maybe) inspired fashion made with durable, thick material that mimics the fabric and such used at the time. I'd have to do more research than I currently have done (inb4 that one anon who is an expert on the 40's comes to booly me) but it would be fun.
Most current vintage inspired brands cost a lot but are cheap on material…although the sizes offered always seem to have a good range and I'd like to mimic that. Also making a line of vintage type underwear and girdles!
what kind of swimsuit are you looking for anon? Is it one to swim in, or one to look cute in at the beach?
I have an honestly pretty ugly one I wear to the pool but it's far more functional than the ~cute one I used to have. It's a zoggs one with built in boob support. I got it on sale from a site called simplyswim which I think is based in the UK.
if you go to amazon and type in vintage style suits you can find some cute styles. i got a navy blue bikini with a high waist and sweetheart halter for about thirty dollars, it has this sweet, tiny sailboat print. wish i had a pic on hand for you, but it gets lots of compliments.
if you're talking more seventies vintage the crocheted bikinis are still going strong on wish, and those are really accurate to the time period.

You could get some little socklets as a compromise
nude tights that match your skintone are fine with a closed-toe heel, especially in colder climates. it's fucking gross when I have to see prickly bare chapped legs in winter when womanchildren decide not to wear tights. we laugh about it all the time in my office because a lot of young women don't know how to dress business formal and make this mistake
formal events are FORMAL events. wear tights or have legs that look like you're wearing tights
Are the other people wearing burlap sacks or jeans and cartoon T-shirt’s? Cause otherwise nothing about maje looks very grandma or fancy.
They’re mostly skater dresses with a bit of lace, not a gown and opera gloves.

I should have specified. I meant more of their newer pieces I’ve seen that are tweed material. I really love these tweed pieces but I was worrying about aging myself but now I realize they don’t look that crazy fancy, just so much more put together than I’m used to ever seeing at school or in my town in general.
At my university people tend to wear “athletic leisure” kind of clothing or like jeans and a basic t shirt.

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.

can you girls help me choose between two handbags?
they’re a similar style and i’m having trouble choosing. the kate spade one is more expensive but it’s cute. the ted baker one is beautiful but i have so many ted baker bags already it would be nice to have more variation.
pic related is the kate spade bag. i tried replying with a shit ton of different pics of the ted baker one but lolcow won’t accept it.
kate spade: https://www.zalando.se/kate-spade-new-york-our-original-bag-medium-satchel-handvaeska-k0551h08t-j11.html
ted baker: https://www.zalando.se/ted-baker-jaanet-handvaeska-pink-te451h0bt-j11.html
I like this one much better TBH https://www.zalando.se/ted-baker-janne-handvaeska-te451h0bw-j11.html
From the two that you are considering, the Ted Baker one seems like a better choice
I love Kate Spade bags but I'd go with the Ted Baker one, I think the more pastel pink shade would look better and match with more outfits.
The bag that the other anon linked is also really cute too.

just found out billie eilish is my exact height. both happy and angry because while it means someone who's short like me is able to pull off these fits, that makes it even sadder to know i can maybe afford to buy 2 or 3 affordable pieces of clothing a month while her wardrobe is obviously full of designer shit. fml

sadly i'm into it… i really like over the top weird fitting flashy clothes, but it's hard to find something good and affordable at my height. at least i'm not also morbidly obese or something.
pic related always makes me chuckle though.

I've been loving Freddy Cousin-Brown's style lately, what do anon think of her? To me her look is ideal cause it has so many pinks and pastels but still manages to look grown up and feminine https://www.instagram.com/freddy/

Yeah, I like it- reminds me of toned down rock-a-billy and larme-kei meets 90's valley girl. Agreed that she has the personality of potato
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.
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.

how do i find sneakers to wear that look fashionable and not frumpy? i don't know if those white adidas sneakers are still in style… i just want something cute and comfortable to wear during the summer when i'm not wearing sandals.
i like how white running shoes look like but i don't want to constantly have to worry about them getting dirty. something that would still look cute with a casual dress. i feel so ignorant about shoes.

Slim running shoes as everyday wear makes you look like a horse girl, imo. Something chunkier is better I think. Look at Veja, Vince, GGDB if you're willing to spend that much, and other fashion sneakers that are more chunky. I'm sure they carry cute ones on Nordstrom

I feel like Keds are always really cute.
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.
File: 1556067204107.png (387.4 KB, 900x667, veja.png)
i think i'll just get the adidas superstars or these veja ones the next time i go to nordstrom. what does horsegirl style look like, though? i need to know so i can avoid accidentally dressing like one.
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?

Same OP as quoted, I feel like this pic is more accurate to my body except my thighs are thicker and my upper abs don't have as much fat on them/have definition.
My thighs hold the most stubborn fat and then my torso is just kind of shapeless.

File: 1556302188246.jpg (459.21 KB, 1000x1000, DELA9046.jpg)
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
Same anon >>84860
I'll try making this piece with one of my friends finally
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.
Or try things that >>113831
File: 1556568428714.png (90.45 KB, 208x300, Britney_Old2-208x300.png)
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
To be blunt, if you're poor and don't have other real designer/high end stuff everyone will instantly know it's fake though
Look at a brand like rebecca minkoff, maybe, i'm sure they have similar designs for less $$
File: 1556716869425.jpg (768.31 KB, 3840x3840, large-2-55-handbag-black-aged-…)
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.
Coccinelle and Furla bags are ugly honestly.
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.
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.

Late response but I know exactly what you're talking about. I try to dress this way as well but it always looks weird when you're not exactly the tallest and slimmest. I think makeup + hair like >>106199
said is very important, but accessorizing with purses and bags + necklaces + taller shoes does wonders with these looks.
Depending on what it is, I use the following:

Does anyone have any pinterest or resources or ideas? I'm a cardigan, blouse and skirt kind of girl a lot of the time and I love jumpers and pinafores, so I wondered if those were alright as long as I choose longer skirts.

I got a job in a call center and have like..three outfits that don’t feel weirdly costumey.
What do I wear other than pencil skirt/blouse/blazer? I’ve been thinking some paper-bag waist or high waisted trousers like pic related with plain coloured cotton T-shirt, and nice jacket and shoes. I’m so hopeless and don’t wanna screw this up!
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.

>>114573>having a dress code for the shittiest job ever
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.
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. >>114728
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?
It should be okay. Already dead tbh haha.
Plus I’m probably more of an asshole than any customer.
creep their social media, then wear a variation of what they would wear
or just wear something you're comfortable in. no one's going to care what clothes you have on unless you're in a bathrobe or something
leggings or jeggings with cute flats
So ever since I got my first high paying job I've been wanting to buy more nice clothes to replace my thrift store crap. I've been going to nice stores but at home I love cute stuff.
I found an online store like this storehttps://modakawa.com/
But I was wondering if some kind anon will link me to more cutesy/unique stuff like this?
Thank you for telling me before I blew money on any of it! So is there any high quality online shops for these kind of things?
sorry, but i dont think there are, at least there arent any i know of, these kinds of clothes are specifically designed like this. if you really want them, try to find them on aliexpress or taobao, clothes like the ones you linked are dime a dozen on sites like that. they will still be shit but at least they will be cheaper.
websites like the ones you linked sell the exact same clothes but inflate the price.

can anyone recommend a good backpack for work/school that ISN'T one of these square-shaped kanken things?
i currently use pic related and i love it, but it's not practical for the densely populated urban city i live in. the square shape makes it impossible to ride public transit without my bag getting jostled and smushed and getting in people's way. it's just awkwardly shaped just takes up too much space for such a small bag.
recs for cute, less structured backpacks?
superdry has some cute ones with glitter starts in atm, i can vouch for quality, they last ages, however if you are on the short side (like under 5'2"), they could look bit big on you.
Herschel also has cute backpacks but they are bit pricey.
Baggu has cute, minimalistic backpacks too (the drawstring model!)
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.>Uniqlo
Amazing basics and undergarments. Sometimes have very interesting clothes, but it mostly looks super mumsy which is what's trending in Japan right now.>H&M
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.>Esprit
Same story as Uniqlo but more expensive.>COS
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.>NAFNAF
Very girly, usually good quality but some of the clothes can be extremely tacky.>Mango
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.
These are some popular stores I've found good quality items in.

Anon, will you wear them outside or just at home and maybe to weeb conventions?
Because I know this is a Japanese fashion staple, but every normie will think you put your retards socks on. Or are loose socks acceptable where you live?
I can't imagine anyone walking around in loose socks without people pointing and laughing behind their back…
Also maybe I am retarded since I've read that loose socks are supposed to make your legs look thinner, but all I see is a fat My Little Pony cankle. I don't get it.
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 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.
Pic related is what I've been mostly using; I love that it looks small but opens up to a huge compartment. Is this type of purse always called a 'satchel'? Does it go by any other names?
I'd like to keep the price under $150. I feel like there is a Marc Jacobs bag out there that may fit my description but idk?

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.

Look at the Lo and Sons Pearl
It's small and fits a lot into it
The rose quartz colour in nappa leather is about $198 on sale, though, I'm not sure how firm your budget is

I’m from Canada too. Idk if you have this in your province but Home Outfitters is going out of business and they have such good clothes on clearance! I got ~ 20 very good quality designer items for $200. I usually dress feminine like blouses, skirts and pretty dresses. they had a lot of that there, as well as hipster and trendy stuff too. Though, keep in mind most of the clothes are from the fall/winter 2018/19 season so they’re a bit out of style but a very good bargain. Just find some timeless staples.
I got something like pic related that was originally $300 for $50. I also got shirts that were around $20-50 for $4.

I'm not sure what body type I have exactly (some websites say rectangle, some pear, some hourglass) and i tend to gain weight in my stomach. What kind of clothes would you guys recommend?

I really hope retro inspired fashion doesn’t go out of style soon. Im digging the vintage vibes!

Thanks for the rec anon! That bag is super cute but I hate the snap closure in the middle.
Does anyone have any more good leather crossbody bag recommendations? I love silver hardware and zippers.

Rebecca Minkoff Micro Bedford Zip Satchel
Sooo good. When it wears in a bit it's so nice. I watched some reviews of it on yt & it holds a lot while still being small & the hardware is silver!!! Why are so many companies using brass or gold-toned hardware? I hate it.
Time to wait for a good deal……

Idk if this is the right place for this but I hate the way Priscilla Ono dresses. Why add all that bulk to a huge body? Her clothes almost look good but they're always so huge and bulky.
(Rihanna's makeup artist in case you were wondering)
i have the same body type as you. i love high-waisted short skirts though, i even wear it in the winter. i just wear tights + thigh high stockings and thigh high boots with very short skirts (it makes stubby legs look longer).
but since you hate skirts/dresses, i would opt for very tight skinny jeans and a form fitting top that has a bit of detail to it, like maybe a frilly necktie or ruffles to balance the lower half of your body.
Oh that’s great. Just need to find a way to conceal my massive hip dip so I can maybe get a nice curve, haha.

Thank you, that actually made my heart smile a little and give a big ‘fuck you’ to my dumbass self-doubt.
i think the best thing to do is to get some staples you are really comfortable in and then incorporate cute/stylized in a smaller percentage.
i find when i buy a bunch of stuff i think looks cute but put it on and don't feel comfortable in it that it ends up sitting in the back of my closet, never to be worn.

I'm a big fan of honey cinnamon and ank rouge. They're clothes are cute yet simple. I wish I could find more cute blouses in America like these

So I bought these Doc Martens Polley Virginia shoes but now that I have them in hand I’m so confused on what to wear them with.
They really do require thick socks so that complicates outfits as well. Anyone have any input on styling these ?
Ahhhh these are so cute! I love Doc Martens. I can decide whether to get Averil or Kendra show style.
I typically wear very tight jeans and a leather jacket with my Doc Martens because it seems edgy and cool. But those ones look very cute. Maybe get grey socks with a lace grill at the top and an dress that has a wide skirt and tight top? I feel like lace would look super cute with those because they look a bit like Mary Janes

what's your style usually like? seems like there are a lot of cute things you could do with 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.
pic related would be style goals, but i live in a hot climate. a typical outfit would be a baggy black band t-shirt, black jeans and black chelsea boots. i ought to wear more colors than just black, but i like how i don't need to worry about color coordination.

Question to UK anons, can anyone recommend high waisted black leggings that aren't see through, but also aren't made for exercise?
I've had cheap ones from New Look, H&M, Asos etc. but those are always too thin and see through & end up as my pj's (+ H&M ones get holes so quickly).
I'm looking for a pair that's made from a soft material that I could wear out instead of jeans, avoiding the sporty ones that feel like they're made of foam.

Just bought this dress. I was thinking about matching it with sheer black pantyhose and maybe black/brown oxfords and maybe get some kind of black bow tie brooch. What do you think about it?

Yeah I noticed that while scrolling through aliexpress. what about these kind of clips in gold.

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.
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.
Next leggings are p good, would recommend
Matalan also are surprisingly not bad

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.
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.

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.
>>120993>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.

ughhh yes ashley bestdressed is literally so perfect im obsessed w her, style & everything she's so sweet
This looks like reformation clothing
Ashley (bestdressed on YT) has a video creating clothes like this I think
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

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

I adore Fashion Mumblr's style!
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.
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 >>121315
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 point

i feel like this and then i see something like rihanna at LV SS19 and i realize i'm kind of designer cucked for some styles.
>>121315>what is conspicuous consumption
sorry about your mental retardation. branding on bags is for clout, anon. people buy them so others (mostly lower middle class) will see them and think "ooh that girl has x brand and spent x amount of money on a bag, i wish i could do that!"
if you like the style then good for you, but the company is making them so people can show off, and that's why most people buy them.

This is from the H and M Oktoberfest Collection only available in Germany and Austria. Idk maybe it’s also available in other European countries but I only saw it advertised in these two countries so far. I missed my chance in getting it while staying in Germany and Austria, which makes me so sad. All the stores closed before I finished my sightseeing, and the stores I went into didn’t have my preferred colour (pictured). Are there any ways to get this shipped to North America? Will the H&M in Switzerland sell these types of dresses? I want a cheap Oktoberfest dress and this one is so pretty. Any German anons have advice?
You probably live in northern germany, nobody cares about your input.
I know plenty of (elderly)
