omg anon same!
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 wish I could wear 50s/60s Mad Men style without looking like a freak and/or tradthot. It's really flattering for every body type I think
Me too anon!
I try to wear 40's and 50's inspired clothing/hair but some days I feel like I give off weird trad vibes.

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 really enjoy putting time into my hair/makeup/clothes and it seems perfect (obviously I'm glorifying it lol, and no I don't want to be a 50s housewife. just wear the clothes)

I really miss 90's/2000's tomboy aesthetics. Avril Lavinge in her early career, Lindsay Lohan's character in Freaky Friday, the shirts that looked like a T-shirt on top of a long-sleeved shirt, tons of bracelets, skateboarding, etc.

early 90's versace is soo cool. runway shows from the 90s are great, the overexaggerated use of colors is really inspiring.
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.
>Too bad metal is just not as big a thing as it was back then.
Sure it is, at least in my country.
In fact I find there are more "posers" now then there used to be, Chads walking around in Metallica T-shirts for the fashion statement.
We also have a metal festival in our country that grows bigger each year.
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.

I miss mori girl. All the cute layers, earthy coloring, focus on comfort. It's so nice. Sad that the community seems to have died off.
Also, I can't relate to people who say "I wish I could wear this but it's not cool anymore/people will think I'm [x]".
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.
Some people are trying to start a community on discord over on cgl. There is also a pretty active comm on facebook! On insta, seems like there are a lot of mori girls from Russia for some reason…
I'm getting more and more into mori; sucks that it is a bit dead but I'm having fun with doing my mori thing.

more into 80s goth/dirty crust punk
But "goth" girls online like to tell me how bad I am at blending or how bad my eyebrows are. I like makeup with clean lines or just smudgy. I can't stand the thick eyebrows either. Pencil thin eyebrows, like you said, don't suit everyone, but I prefer them.>>96904
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.

Effy, tumblr-esque fashion. Still alive on some sites like weheartit but largely dated. Skinny legs, black tights, short skirts. Fishnets, casual sex, nobody understanding you. Look at all the views on videos about how to act like effy, how to do your makeup like her (the green eyeshadow on the bottom waterline was a cultural reset for british girls kek), the endless tumblr gifs of effy smoking. She's trapped in a certain time and so's the aesthetic

Honestly, scene. Idek why, as an esl I barely knew any English back then, so it's not like I participated or was involved with the aesthetic. I just remember seeing the pictures here and there and using them for roleplaying characters and thinking they were really cool girls.

Mid to late y2k fashion like pic related. It looks stupid and shitty but it's still somehow strangely endearing.
The few that exist out of cities have an even crappier selction. 100% clothes from formerly fat people and dead fat people clothes lol.
Then again, a city in my country is a village in most others, and my country has less of a population than many cities.

That's pretty much how I feel about it too, I ended up wearing a giant green parka that falls to my mid-thigh to death for years (á la Nicole) instead because an elongated silhouette just suits me better. I still have it and love it but it looks so dingy with fraying sleeves and torn faux fur inside and I'm not creative enough to patch it up in a decent way. I've gone back and forth on just buying a new one for at least 2 years now.

Creepy cute and pastel goth from 2013 Tumblr, I know it can be kind of cringy but I think the pieces work well separated on today's fashion.
It's sad how there are cute styles that don't last very much, maybe because there isn't a subculture that comes with them (like emo, goth, etc)

Alright what was the worst decade for mainstream men's fashion ?
the 2000's or the 70's
Kek, these are actually two of my favorite eras.
I’d say y2k and the 70s are equal on the scale in terms of what looked flattering and what didn’t.
But I don’t think it’s fair to judge either based on cherry picked photos of middle aged men in leisure suits and gimmicky red carpet looks.

Can crop tops on boys be a thing again? The 80s were the best time for men's fashion imo.>>141227
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.>>141224>>141225
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.

Mfw I really like it but the uwu ddlg vibe throws me off. I happy to see that milkmaid dresses/tops are trending
…am I the only one who instead sees people often associate it with lesbians or otherwise female/female romance? It seemed like an extension of the "lesbian farmers" meme; a nice combination of implied self-sufficiency and pretty yet natural femininity.
Sorry if any of this offends (or comes off as fetish-y to) any actual lesbianons, as I am but a disgusting bisexual. To me the fantasy sounds pleasant.
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.
Whatever DDLG innocent yet slutty implications this has I can't really justify as an adult ass woman. Sucks to suck.

Perhaps it's just the channel where I first saw it giving me a bias, then. Admittedly even when it is aesthetic/fashion images included they're often more farm-leaning than nymphet-esque or sexy.

>>142039>people associate ddlg with lesbians
I was quoting what those anons are associating cottagecore with. What I was saying is that I often see cottagecore associated with lesbians, not ddlg/nymphet/trad shit.
Sorry for the miscommunication.
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.
I mostly see the lifestyle aspects of it associated with f/f romance rather than the fashion. >>142041
I'm one of those idiots who thinks you should just wear what makes you happy but I think you could probably make that kind of top work in a conventional sense in your early to mid 30s if you styled it in a certain way.

I’m almost 25, and sometimes I also feel like I’m too old to wear a lot of the styles I like. But you can totally rock the whole feminine/rustic look at any point in your life, it’s not limited to 15yr olds on Depop. This vintage seller always comes to mind when I think of women my age and older going for a similar aesthetic, minus all the ~uwu smol fae~ crap: https://instagram.com/adoredvintage?igshid=7ghw51u0fu17

I just bought a juicy tracksuit, it looks a lot like pic attached! I have such nostalgia for being in elementary school in the mid-aughts and owning soooo many cheap velour tracksuits that I’d wear with white sneakers, coincidentally I’m also buying a pair of white nikes for my birthday so I can remake my fave look from a decade and a half ago :’) I don’t like athleisure but I can’t make masks work with my usual style so leaning into the trashy 2000s glam leisure is gonna be fun, I bought a short sleeve and a long sleeved jacket to match the pants!!
to anon and everyone else who thinks 25 year olds are too old to wear anything
at mid to late twenties you're a young woman and you're at exactly the right time in your life to wear sexy or fashionable clothes. Somehow us young woman and teen girls alike have been memed into thinking you can only wear certain clothes when you're a teen (even when these are sexy/revealing styles that should not be worn by minors for fucks sake) and that we're an old granny at 25 rather than a hot young woman. (and you bet we have men to thank for this shit, don't let anyone convince you you're too old at 25 ffs)

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!
This, also, the confidence a grown woman can have is an entirely different beast than that of a child.
I was too embarrassed to wear lolita fashion and kinderwhore fashion until I turned 25. I get called all the nasty shit I used to be terrified I would be called, but now it doesn't mean anything to me like it would have when I was a kid
I think the industry tries to rob women of the confidence we would have otherwise naturally grown into

This is very 2000s twee "i shop at modcloth" indie girl style, like a more colorful zooey deschanel.
Its one of my favorite dated aesthetic it was just absolutely lovely, very few stores still sell these kinds of clothing.

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
Anyway again, here's a pic I slapped together

Not her and I participate in both fashions, but I'm betting the reasoning is along the lines of, "Men will always sexualize you, why give them something to work with?"
To which an answer may be, men will always sexualize you, so either figure out how to avoid them at all costs (and share how plz), or give up worrying about what scrotes think and just wear what you like

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 also miss how apolitical most people on the internet were and the mindset of "labels are for soupcans xD" but it looks like it's lost forever.
I miss it a lot but I think it should stay dead. There’s no point if it’s not 2008 and you’re not listening to bring me the horizon and I set my friends on fire. And have mountains of Gir and Skelanimal merch. Seriously tho, I miss how creative people would get with the hair colors and outfits. >tfw I tried piercing my own snakebites
I was fucking nuts
I do miss the kandi kid/raver shit that was popular too. It’s kinda blended with the jfashion/Kawaii shit going around at the time. Reminds me of Gutterface/Joji kek. I loved learning how to make the bracelets and seeing other people’s kandi collection .

I wish it would. "E-girl" and "e-boy" isn't the same. It feels insincere and manufactured to me. Not just because it came from the internet. There were some styles that came from the internet like seapunk that still felt authentic. Maybe I'm just a boomer but the "e-girl" style doesn't sit right with me.

Sorry for being off topic but I looked her up since I remember following her back on FB
She's still active and well… at least she's not as fat as she used to be and has a bit more mature style.
I see she is still all about these cringe ass usernames kek
I would've never recognized her though, her face looks vastly different, maybe it is weight loss
i think it's because the egirl style is essentially just people imitating a movement/whatever that died 3 years ago. maybe its also because the whole egirl image is wrapped up in such a thick layer of internet thottery.
i dunno. maybe i'm just bitter because i'm too young to have experienced the whole scene thing in all its glory. i bet that 15 years from now there'll be girls talking about how they wished they could've been egirls.

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.

Same person here, but I also like the trad goth and deathrock styles. Goth is also really a music genre, but I'd like how they did some 80's hair, but the style is almost similar to punk. Trad goth styles is way better than the mall "goth" and especially than what e girls think what "goth" is to them.

but just now i realize all those lookbook famous girls were very underweight anachans, is it just a 2000s thing? Honestly I feel like even the classic "ana" look of being absolutely tiny and dainty is dead and most internet wannarexics want to look thin but still fit an hot, you know the insta thot look.
I think weebs have taken over the dainty worship. >>147061
Huh, I googled her and she still has an active insta. She's still pretty but doesn't look quite so perfect so I'm wondering if she photoshopped or wore more makeup than I realized back in the day. Like, I had no idea she had freckles.
I always dreamed of having the puffed up hair that girl does but couldn't pull it off lmao. God I love the late 2000's to early 2010's gyaru. It had this unbeatable bitch queen energy that I can't resist. >>141223

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.

Go for it! I used to hang out at the mall for hours with my similarly-dressed edgelord friends before I moved and before COVID and it was such a blast. Maybe you could meet people through dressing up. A lot of accessories can be DIY'ed and you can find cool Tripp clothes on ebay for cheap. Demonia also makes some cool shoes but theyre a bit pricy.

ntayrt but I think they're refering to how styles, that used to have roots that suggested a lifestyle (such as punk and goth being anti-consumerist and diy) have been replaced and watered down by aesthetics that just prioritise making the wearer looking palatable and nice to men/a mainstream normie audience. Like how modern punk and goth fashion has been watered down to egirl fashion and has become rather consumerist

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.>>152326

I love cybergoths. They're unapologetic about their hobbies and make a point of not caring about what anyone else thinks of that.
I'm just a regular goth myself but I went to cybergoth dance parties a couple times and was surprised to see that there's still full on cybergoths around. This was last year and I hadn't seen any since the late 00s.

I agree with >>153316
- go for it! Thanks for reminding me how much I love this style. If you feel self conscious, maybe you can go for an oversized slouchy sweater with cigarette pants? But honestly a lot of body types look great with the classic nipped in waist look, so don’t limit yourself before trying it out.
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).

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).
cultural appropriation much?
sorry, i'll see myself out

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
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.>>96747
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?>>96773
My what dreamy dresses..!>>96955
The best part is that tomboys/skaters tend to dress like that regardless of the Zeitgeist, although it is certainly less widespread nowadays.>>96970>>141033
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

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.
← Everyone went berserk for that dress and that coat, everyone had them. That was my eras "basic" lol.

You sound a lot like her even if you're not>Does no one else go through the transtemporal phase as a teen and young adult? I wanted to believe in transtemporaility, but it simply wasn't me. As someone else observed, my particular writing style is… I don't want to say affected, but similar to letter-writing, a unique but charming turn of phrase takes effort to cultivate and maintain. Obviously, if transtemporality were a thing, my natural affect would be Victorian and it wouldn't slip when I'm upset. I admit in recent years I have not done nearly as much reading as I should in order to keep my linguistic garden well-kept. I need to work on that so that I can still sound poised when I'm emotional.

Shit, didn't see this. I love the dresses, but dislike all that surrounds it; the dirty hair and shoes, the deranged facial expressions, and so forth.

I used to think most of these characters had cool clothes. Funny to look back today and see how dated most of these outfits looks. This was around 2007, one of my favourite years.
Somehow out of the boys, only Tony's clothes look particulaly dated. men's fashion is so boring.>>160172>they reminded me of every idiot who went to my college
That makes sense, TV shows are marketed to the majority. You probably just weren't the target audience.

Idk, I feel like a lot of teenagers used to look like pic related between 2005-2009, whilst the Skins fashion was more of an "early 2010" look. So I thought the Skins characters dressed very well back then (although most of their outfits are hideus today)
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.
Also lowkey miss early 00's loose rock pants/skater clothes/breakdance hiphop style. Mainly because boys and men never wear that stuff anymore. Skating, breakdancing and oldschool hiphop with turntables activities are gone too. Maybe also a corduroy pants, jackets.

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.

Cassie has a timeless thrift shop style that's still kinda charming and Effy looked like she belonged in 2014. Honestly I still love how they both dressed.
Funny how the most fashionable characters look the worst now, like Michelle? Tony? Ew

i used to want to look just like shmegeh when i was younger. something about how she looked so sickly was so appealing to my 13 year old self. i even bleached my hair and eyebrows to try and emulate her aesthetic. i know she's obv a shitty person but this was around the same time i would sleep with a picture of dylan klebold under my pillow every night, so there was definitely something wrong with my judgement. i do still like the whole "black eye looking makeup with the saturation turned way down" thing. if this came back (minus the anachans) i would be very okay with it.

I fell in love with this style of dressing, edgy but not emo. Jenny was really the reason I wear fishnets with shorts.
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. This recent wave of invented style names being attached to stuff is driving me nuts. 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. Your brain is either soft from years of being into japanese fashion or melting from too much time on TikTok. Like other anon said, not everything is a thing. /endrant

Mad Men was mentioned above already, but I hate how at a certain level/in certain professions womenswear has had a very difficult time getting out of the "what a man would wear to work if he was a woman" power-styling of the 80s. I work at a very "black or grey suit" office.
I also love the versatility with which the women in this show would wear their little Hermes scarves. I've tried both the babushka/Grace Kelly styles of tying it around my head in certain weather for the sake of my frizz, but I can't pull it off.

I enjoyed this style very much in the early 2010s. I spent the whole of my early to mid 20s dressed like this. Looking back this feels really dated now but it was just so comfortable and cute at the time. I preferred the knitted uggs however and I always had some that were Grey or beige.
i always do bronzer + brighter blush lol it just flatters my face shape i feel>>160066
i felt this so deep within me it was like my teen self circa 2013-2016 was suddenly blasting out of me. i miss these days so much. i'm still young enough to channel this into my everyday casual style at least.

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.

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.

I only stopped wearing them because I realized they're not the most flattering on my bodytype a few years ago, but otherwise I'd still be wearing them and I'm in my midtwenties.>>166380
Exactly. It's the media and marketing getting us to think this.
I hate this stupid idea that you need to stop wearing all these clothes once you hit a certain age. I'll wear whatever I like if I can, one more reason to stay fit.
It's annoying af, even on lolcow people are like>That outfit is sexy/revealing, therefore it's more suitable to teenagers than grown women in their 20s
Seriously, fuck that… skimpy stuff is more appropriate any adult woman than a teen
I’ve started wearing sexier clothing the closer I get to 30 because I know how to do it in a way that is refined.
Like I may look hot, but I have enough experience behind me that you can’t take advantage of me.

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.
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.https://www.vogue.com/fashion-shows/fall-2007-ready-to-wear/luca-luca
it's so unabashedly alien ski instructor / apocalyptic shimmer. I wish more of this would be accessible to normies.
