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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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

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).

Im rewatching AHS and teen nostalgia hit me hard, I want to go back to dressing like Violet Harmon so hard.

2010s grunge-boho hybrid was blessed.

Decora delighted me. I was never deep into J-fashion but I always loved looking at pics of this style. I remember the one time I posted on /cgl/, I made a thread for decora pics and got yelled at because it was apparently dead. Too bad.

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.

Makes my heart a little heavy to think back to all these styles we had or adored i feel like nowadays everything is so distorted.

Absolutely love the 'elegant' 2000s fashion's obsession with ugly shades of browns and wrinkled satin,
not the best pic but still

Do you know who the designer is for that? It's cool, it gives me kind of militant dominatrix vibes. Used to love looking at runway fashion in magazines as a kid in the 2000s.

a literally had couple of pictures of decora fashion on my wall in 2009! such a fun style. there's still decora girls out there and they bring me such joy.

i used to love it in highschool.

mine would be 2000's over the top gyaru. kuro, yamamba, anything that took gyaru to this crazier level. most gyarus from that time are "normal" gyarus now (so, japanese girls with dyed hair and a more western style i guess lmao).
