I really dislike CLove as a person, but love her 90's looks and Hole's music…
Personally I never got the 'but it's a dated look' argument against alt styles. Just wear whatever and make it work for you. You can also make it look more modern by adding slight touches of current trends if it's a problem.
Don't copy, get inspired and you will be good.

90s/early 00s goth makeup

>wtf anon that's not dead at all

no! you don't understand! goth is popular and 90s revival is popular, but both camps mostly go for modern makeup, just different intensities and color palettes of ig makeup with the thick brows/cat eye liner/precise eyeshadow. i miss mean skinny brows, unfussy smudged eyeliner, and weird brownish red lipstick. i realize it didn't look good on everyone but on some people it looked fucking amazing and i'm not changing mine!

This is mostly talking about male aesthetics but I know girls in this subculture nowadays wear this sort of stuff too when they're heavily into it.

I miss seeing the 80s/90s full blown thrash and black metal get up with long hair, battle jackets, and bullet belts. Too bad metal is just not as big a thing as it was back then. Men who look like this turn me the fuck on for some reason and they just look so cool to me but god are they rare as ever in my area.

I love the menswear too, it just looks so put together all the time. I already dress quite "preppy" or classic and it gives people the wrong impression of me (they think I'm super conservative).

I once dated a guy who had one of these, he told me it's tradition to never wash these and that no proper owner of one of those jackets would ever think of washing them. I find them disgusting now.

Men walking around in Metallica shirts are usually not into metal.

And that guy who told you that is gross because people do wash their jackets and vests. Maybe thats only a thing in your country. (Lemme guess, eastern europe?) Regardless, it's not a popular subculture in the rest of the world.

Wear what you like in your free time. You're young and beautiful, that's your privilege (and even if you're neither of those things, not dressing as you please is a waste of time). You probably wouldn't normally be seeking fashion advice from whoever would talk shit, anyway.

Battlejackets are still well and alive. Thrash isn't though. So a lot of metalheads are basement dwellers or hitler youth looking motherfuckers. Idk, see if DRI or Napalm Death are coming through your town. Or go to some grindcore/power violence/crust punk shows.

Even sucky second hand shops deserve a look anon, I worked in a sucky one where the menopausal manager didn't notice that a lazy oaf shirt was tagged as like 3 quid because she didn't know the brand and I just looked the other way as I rang it up.

Can crop tops on boys be a thing again? The 80s were the best time for men's fashion imo.

They're both pretty bad, but I'd choose 70s men any day. Frosted tips are gross, but long hair on men can be nice if the guy has good hygiene. I don't know, I just think the 70s were endearingly dorky. The 2000s were just cringey.

I thought this shit was tacky even when it was popular. These low-cut bedazzled jeans went out of style of a reason. Everyone's asscrack was hanging out, and the stupid rhinestones either dug into your leg or fell off. Good riddance.

Ladies forgive me for being shallow and simple-minded but about six years back when I decided I wasn't going to kill myself, I realized I had to work towards actually making my life one that was worth living. I had to find joy, and one thing that brought it to me is the brand For Love and Lemons, for whatever reason. I'm not a fashionable girl, never owned a handbag, but something about the white lace was so chic to me in a non-fashion way. It was something simple to strive towards. Now I'm 27 and actually have a career and can afford this shit. I bought the milkmaid tops and the little lace dresses and I'm like. Well fuck. I've aged out of this style.

I never see nymphet or cottagecore associated with lesbians. I know there's the "me, my gf, and our home in the forest" stuff on Twitter, but that's more earthy and mori or forest elf/witch (think AtelierHeidi) than cottagecore or nymphet.

Sorry for the miscommunication.

No. 142056

I feel like there's 2 schools of cottagecore: house on the edge of the forest and house in the forest.
House on the edge of the forest is more like you've got a cute cottage with a flower field in front and the style is more pastel and lacey, think pastel Gunne Sax dresses.
House in the forest is more earthy-toned and mori-influenced with lots of layering, knit/crochet pieces, and boots. House in the forest is the aesthetic that everyone's Animal Crossing island aims to be.

No. 142066

I mostly see the lifestyle aspects of it associated with f/f romance rather than the fashion.

ntayrt but if you're worried about weeb vibes or making them look too costumey, I'd try to keep them hemline longer (mid-thigh shortest) and keep the top part loose. Pic related is a pretty safe bet, albeit maybe a touch too short). Skater skirts are just a variation of circle skirts which I think is pretty timeless and fine to wear at any age, maybe with a few adjustments of material/pattern/hemline to fit your comfort/age. As long as you stay away from the tumblr circa 2014 style of a burgundy circle skirt, band tee, and knee socks, you should be fine (altho I still love that style kek) But hey, on your own time if you want to dress a certain way and it makes you happy, go for it anon!

Totally, so in many ways, kinderwhore is a dark half to lolita; where lolita says, "I don't care if you're uncomfortable," kindwhore says, "You should be uncomfortable."
Kinderwhore is a sharp blend of ostensibly childish aesthetic with unpleasant overtly sexual overtones, a blunt commentary on how girls are brought up in our culture and left effected as adults because of it
I get most of my everything on eBay, it's a hot spot for vintage clothes, thrift stores can be good too if you're in a wealthy or older area
Anyway, keep your dress silhouette short and shapeless, some good search terms include "babydoll," "trapeze," "vintage a-line" and "vintage nightgown." You can have a waist, but usually if you do, it shouldn't be much lower than your nips
Leg wear can be straight up trashy, like Leg Avenue cheap black netting-lace even.
Shoes are usually stilettos or flats, an excellent and widely available option is heels modeled after classic childrens' shoes, like mary janes, penny loafers, saddle shoes, and sneakers even
Mini backpacks and stuffed animal purses are pretty classic, but satin pocketbooks also match well, hearkening back to the birthday party aesthetic Courtney Love experimented with briefly

Up on a pedestal or down on your knees, it's all a male fantasy: that you're strong enough to take what they dish out, or else too weak to do anything about it. Even pretending you aren't catering to male fantasies is a male fantasy: pretending you're unseen, pretending you have a life of your own, that you can wash your feet and comb your hair unconscious of the ever-present watcher peering through the keyhole, peering through the keyhole in your own head, if nowhere else.

The one thing I really appreciate about scene is that the girls (afaik) didn't feel the need to fake tan so much, although this seems to be a thing for the 2000's in general for as far as I can see. Like if I google "scene queens" it's all just girls rocking their own natural, fresh skincolors. Thát needs to be a trend to come back in 2020, no sundamaged skin, orange faux tans and calling pale skin "unhealthy". Let's just leave our skincolor be again.

Emo styles from the 1990's. Emo is actually a music genre, but the kids from the late 80's- late 90's would thrift shop at places and basically look like a mixture between geek chic and hipster. Emo was more clean cut than the "emo" fashion of the 2000's.

I looove late 90's/early 2000's edgelord styles. I think mall goth clothes from that time are really fun (tripp, platform shoes, spikes, long baggy clothes, too many accessories, vampirefreaks ect.) and I have been collecting clothing and accessories for years. It's just really fun to look like a wacky edgy freak. It doesn't really bother me when people stare or talk shit because dressing like this makes me feel cool on the inside lol.

It's odd to me that teens are trying to turn "mall goth" into a palatable hyperfeminine thing. The e-girl stuff is repetitive, they all wear the same outfit and copy each other because they don't want to go out of their comfort zone.(E-girl outfits consist of some mainstream band shirt with a striped long-sleeve underneath, a plaid skirt, fishnets, killstar boots, and a studded belt. Or a checkered/flame bandeau instead of the shirt.) I think they'll get bored of it when the next popular aesthetic comes around.

Honestly, I think that when it comes to this fashion, the dorkier the clothes are, the better. The baggy pants and oversized shirts are so fun to wear and if you don't look a bit ridiculous you're doing it wrong.

at anons about goth fashion i completely agree, however i’m less so worried about the whole “e-girl” trend because it’s just mostly teenagers being teenagers for the most part, i’m ok with them embracing whatever that is if it makes them happy without being malignant tumors, it’s just another trend imo. It only really annoys the shit out of me when you have grown women acting like 14-15 year olds about it, reclaiming the term “e-girl” like it’s a badge, then it just gets old fast. though honestly it really depends. i wanted to be scene so badly lmao now i’m mostly teetering on the 2000s fashion revival and goth lolita, even though i don’t think i’d ever wear goth lolita and military-esque lolita fashion in public often unfortunately because it’d probably be too hot and much of a hassle enough. i’m just now starting this year to really get in touch with visual-kei, mallgoth, and harajaku. i’m super excited, i’m hoping to get a new pair of boots soon! fashion is probably one for the best things in the world.

hard agree with the other two anons that you should give it a try– obviously most styles look good on slim women, but i think there's wiggle room with this one and it could actually be really cute on a rounder, softer figure. >>153419 suggested a slouchy sweater, maybe you could nip it at the waist with a belt for some definition? and a little beret on top, it might look really cute! do yourself a favor and try it out, it's a lovely style and i for one would love to see more people wearing it

>I'm jealous of people who look good with berets, I guess my head shape is fucking weird
Maybe try out different ways to wear them? I love berets and think they can be flattering on almost any head shape. Some people look better with bigger and more structured ones, while others suit smaller and floppier berets. The placement makes a difference as well. If you don't look good with a beret that's more to the front and to the side (like your pic), try wearing one that's more centered on the back of your head (like pic related, different style but you get the point).

I was totally into fairy kei when i was younger and i related to it in the first place because a part of the aesthetic where 80s/90s toys like polly pocket or my little pony. Good times.

The revival I most anticipate is the period of when Mustaches, PicCollage, obnoxious phonecases and "Stay Calm and X" were popular. I am genuinely curious to see the modern interpretations of these trends, and simply know they will return as the children who were born in the 2000s gain more influence in the mainstream street-fashion.

In terms of past styles, I truly miss early 2010s weeaboo culture. In my experience, this was a true peak, as online culture was genuinely blooming and growing at a rapid pace. The abundance of squishy and fairy-kei tutorials on YouTube, the lack of Japanese fashion anywhere which demanded creativity, reading a lonesome Legend of Zelda manga from the school library, Kyary Pamyu Pamyu, Vocaloid dance cover popularity… Fukkireta!! Oh my… Ah, what wonderful times. I occasionally indulge in these memories by watching videos by the likes of this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RQlO1h-T0UQ, for instance. So perfect <3 truly a peak in fashion history. Now fairy kei is just a hiding place for uneducated tumblerettes (even if I visit tumblr myself, you know what I mean, ahah).

Another "outdated style" which I have been indulging in recently is the early 2010s tumblr, crafty, photographer indie girl. I am drawn so to its melange of melancholic and artsy, and the spaces between just grown up and teenager, girly and mature, modest and trendy, weird and creative, and of course the very honest nature of tumblr's textposts at the time. I also slight miss when, around this period, legitimate ana's were en vogue. Now it seems to be more "fit" slim as opposed to mentally ill skinny. (this?? >>141034) >>141063 IT WAS

Finally, it really satisfies my past self to see the abundance of legitimate scene and emo girls in real life. The past few weeks I encountered a handful of tweenaged girls during my dailiy commute, who perfectly suited these characteristics, one of whom being extremely pale, sporting a perfect, pitch-black, poofy side-fringe, and wearing something akin to a BVB-shirt, ahah. The second had natural and remarkably choppy bangs which nearly covered her eyes, whilst donning a bunny hat with long paws, a fluffy skirt covered partially by her tee-shirt and socks over her tights– all in mismatching colors, of course.

Goodness I dislike the "kinderwhore" style. Perhaps it is the result of the influences modern styles have had on it, but the contemporary expressions I've seen of it appear to solely attract mentally ill fatties, or girls using it as an excuse to appear dirty and obnoxious, excusing their behavior with the style itself! Perhaps I have solely seen misrepresentations of the fashion, however?

My what dreamy dresses..!

The best part is that tomboys/skaters tend to dress like that regardless of the Zeitgeist, although it is certainly less widespread nowadays.

how adorable!!

Oh dear, I so fondly recall meeting with a friend many years ago, as she showed an interest in Japanese fashion, and I was most willing to teach her what I knew. We would explore her wardrobe, as to discover her style. Subsequently I would coordinate a core outfit, with some alternative options for different days and moods. The result was a "cult party kei" outfit, and I made one for myself as well so we could match, hehe. It was genuinely fun, I wish I still had friends who would like me to style them and vice versa! I love it so much, but none of them are interested lolol

I would respond more but this is already deserving of a mega sage lol. anyway picrel is the mustache-type of period i mean, right before the term kawaii became entirely ruined and widespread

>>96773 I spy Topshop. Yes. I miss what was common 2006-2012 (ish, it's a guess!) British high street fashion, specifically Topshop, which went to shit. Older UK anons should know what I mean. Short, muted floral-print tea dresses, leather jackets, pixie boots, woolly tights lol.

It was perfect for those in-between years, not wanting to dress like a little girl anymore, but not comfortable dressed as a "woman"/sexy. Much better than the thot & "basic" looks of today.

Decent quality, reasonably priced. I have £30 dresses, worn almost daily, that are still in perfect condition.
It's still in demand, second-hand clothes of that era can command far beyond their original selling price.

I've got same impression, can't stand Skins. But they're not dated at all, unfortunately Skins have a huge revival on Tumblr and spaces like that, every other stupid girl wants to have romantic beautiful drug addiction or anorexia and to be Effy or Cassie.
Also MySpace emo scene shit/early 00's Paris Hilton plastic looks are coming back. You can't escape teenage girls drooling for Anna Nicole Smith, Paris and Lindsey on Tumblr these days. I feel nostalgic for 00's fashion but ever since it turned wanted and not ridiculed it kind of was spoiled for me.
I like 90's rockbands kinderwhore-babydoll aesthetic like other anons mentioned, actually they were having a comeback in 2012-2013. They always look good no matter the year.

I watched it a bit as a young teen and thought it was cool, rewatched it later and found it ridiculous. The storylines were overdramatic even for a drama, the characters poorly crafted, pacing way off. I would have been one of those parents who wouldn’t allow their kid to watch it, but because of the shit quality rather than uncomfortable themes.

I do miss that era of fashion in a way. It was shit, but it was acceptable to look kind of thrown together. Growing up with the current aesthetics and beauty standards must be really tough.

Thank you. This is gonna be a rant but I'm a bit older than a lot of posters here (lolcow is my version of watching reality tv) and I have sold women's vintage online for nearly 25 years.

I can't recall if it was in this thread or one of the other fashion related threads here, but someone posted a pretty generic 1970s blazer jacket type outfit and someone asked "does this style have a name?" and my head exploded. Yeah, it's "everyday late 1970s fashion". Someone else responded it's soft something something. It wasn't anything, and that doesn't exist, shut the fuck up.

I'm old enough to remember the days when makeup application was easy and simple and even celebrities wore very basic makeup that took 10 minutes to apply. It was acceptable for your foundation not to completely match your skin tone and you could wear one color on your eyelids that you blended for a few seconds. Makeup was often applied with fingers instead of brushes.

Nowadays everyone frowns upon drugstore makeup and you are expected to shell out on Jefree starr palettes and you are expected to do your makeup with professional drag queen, makeup artist tier skill. This is all thanks to YouTube makeup tutorials. You see teen girls with makeup collections worth hundreds of dollars. When I was growing up even adult women didn't own that much makeup.

I see teen girls with flawless makeup and I like in a hick town in eastern europe. Either kardashian clones or e-girls, all of them seem to have mastered the craft kek
It always makes me feel self conscious for not wearing any makeup at all, or some dark lipstick at most, but I really can't be arsed to spend so much time on this shit.

I really enjoy the fun way in which older women used to dress many decades ago.

Nowadays as you age you are expected to wear boring, shapeless gaudy clothing with cheap floral prints and shark hems. You are expected to embrace frizzy hair with gray roots and crocs with socks and to just disappear.

Older women in the bygone era often looked so glamorous and they never really gave up on trying to look beautiful or trying to stand out.

They would curl their hair, wear intracate fitted dresses and broaches, wear brightly colored lipstick and interesting glasses.

Female beauty today seems to be completely focused on youth and sex appeal and women are expected to just fade into old age and stop expressing themselves in their clothing choices.

Same, I used to feel ashamed that my makeup skills were becoming obsolete as time passed. I only wear lipstick, simple eyeshadow and eyeliner, don't care.

Agreed anon. I remember my mom only having a few small eye shadow compacts, nothing like the $60 palettes of today.

With all the tutorials nowadays, it's no longer "acceptable" to not be good at makeup, but not everyone has the desire to do Instagram/MUA-tier makeup. I miss these looks because they were more accessible to everyone and didn't create ridiculous standards.

No. 162566

not to mention this is so much more innovative and expressive of a style than the generic baddie trend of today's. the more MUA-type looks i see the more i realize they're all completely formulaic and end up looking like the same shit in different packages

Weird isn't it? Scrotes into drag use that much contouring etc to try to look like us, then makeup companies want us to imitate the imitation of our faces.

The first time I wore makeup to a school dance, my mom applied makeup on my face with her finger tips; it made me confused and upset (because online I saw girls using elaborate brushes/techniques) not knowing that it's how it was done before.

This is Crackcosette right? I used to read her blog but it seems to be defunct now. A lot of the blogs I used to read are now completely inaccesible.

I miss fashion blog-culture from the early to mid 10's. Just random girls taking pictures of their outfits and some other things in their day-to-day life and posting it on their blogs and lookbooks. Maybe I'm blinded by nostalgia but those blogs felt more authentic and less pretentious than Instagram.

No. 171491

I miss the kind of clothing that started to trend on the runways around 2000. The best example I can find quickly is this collection by Luca Luca, even though it's kind of later than when I remember seeing it as a kid and when looking at the archives on The Fashion Spot.


it's so unabashedly alien ski instructor / apocalyptic shimmer. I wish more of this would be accessible to normies.

Actually, I wanted to have a y2k throwback party in 2020 with the dress code as "what you'd wear to meet aliens for the first time" but I guess that's indefinitely on hold

No. 171769

I get the feeling that as we age, people don't really care if you wear something that is "dated." I think it's more about how appropriate it is for a situation.

Already in college it felt like no one cared as much what trends were "in". Then again, I was not part of a big social scene there.

I think the question is just whether you can carry the clothes. pull it off. and respect some environments. Work is not the place to show skin or look like a slob. Don't look like a frump at a wedding. Stuff like that.
