I have too many meme fits, so I'm rehauling my entire wardrobe and starting from scratch.
What timeless basics do I need, and other than that, how do I future proof my wardrobe?
Just buy stuff you like and try to stick with a theme. People always tell me my clothes look great and what is my style? I don't have one I just buy what I like and try to keep a daily outfit limited to a max of 4 colors/shades as try to make it so their black/white values are similar. Effay will have you look like every other memer.
You need to know the rules to break them. But just get what you like. Personally I hate black because it takes no effort and thought to have "style". Easy to maintain and match endlessly. A black hole of black clothes. That being said I have a few black articles just because even if you try to avoid it, they come to you naturally.
Naa not weird just basic and boring like everyone else. Everyone wears dark colors because it's easy and it hides stains well. How many men do you see with pastel outerwear or pastel anything for that matter? A girl I know just bought me a purple overcoat and I get stopped daily to ask where I got it.
Also don't be afraid of the women's section, especially at thrift shops. Often when some clothing is super swag/patterns/floral it'll get put in there despite being a men's cut. Don't buy a bunch of clothes all at once. You can't build a real cool wardrobe that fast very likely unless you live in a great vintage city like sf /la/nyc. Very cool+original+fits you well + affordable comes by rarely. Usually it's just one or 2 at a time unless you really take your time. Usually when I go into a shop I'll buy something every 5 or so visits and it'll usually only be one thing. That's life.
>"try to make it so their black/white values are similar"
Do you mean the color value or the color saturation? And also, isn't that one of the main points of fashion, to create interesting contrasts between pieces? Or are you saying you should keep the value/saturation similar, and mix up the saturation/value?
Not trying to be a dick, just curious what other people think.
