How come not a lot of girls post on /fa/?

You'd think they care more about fashion?
>>
4chan is male dominated so why would girls come here
>>
People who actually care about fashion don't post on this shithole of a board.
>>
>>10849275
most girls dont care or know anything about fashion

they just like shopping
>>
>>10849285
Haven't seen much girls in any other fashion forum neither, so what's your point?
>>
>>10849275
I was wearing my Qasas at uni and a women came up to me and said that she liked them and that she liked fashion.

I bit and asked her what her favorite designers were, she responded by saying, "Hollister, Banana Republic, and Forever 21".

I understand that she was probably just trying to talk to me, but my autism took over and I said, "cool" and walked away.

tl;dr women don't appreciate fashion
>>
>>10849296
I see them pretty often, but mens still dominante. Ask yourslef, why there is no to so many good dressed girls, most of them looking like shit? Plus, this

In my experience I have seen more girls post in here over the years than I've seen them in SuFu, KTT, or Caretags.

/fa/ waywt is mostly for the bery insecure ppl that kinda know they're fit is trash but still want the brutally honest criticism. also belive it or not we're probably the most active fashion related forum behind refdit, even if this place purely memes.

i've yet to see american women actually care about fashion
a lot of girls claim an interest in it, but maintain a wardrobe full of shit bought at zara, h&m and topshop or w/e fast fashion chain is hot at the moment.
the only girls i've ever seen with cool pieces and fits are usually korean, chinese, jap, etc. but even then i can't tell if they are genuinely interested in fashion or just trying to emulate their favorite k-pop stars through their disposable income lol

My gf posts here since I introduced it to her, but she just frogposts and pretends to be a fat robot. She's basically a troll.

This isn't really much of a fashion board because the tastes are very specific and budgets tend to be extremely low. So you get this limited scope that isn't very encompassing. It's also pretty immature fashion.

>>10849758
Met her at a new years eve party a few years back, kind of random really. I certainly didn't show her 4chan for a long time, but, I like to shitpost in bed so eventually she just saw me posting on my laptop and was curious.

My gf before this one thought 4chan was disgusting though. She left me because of my tiny penis though not 4chan.

>>
>>10849275
That's a misnomer.

Women care more about fitting in rather than fashion and they will utilize clothing to do it.

Most women are aware that the uggs, north face and leggings look is bad but every girl does it around them so they do it.

Same deal with the ombre hair or the neon hair trend.

They know micheal kors watches suck but it's a must have.

So the idea of finding niche designers and/or up and coming brands who put quality on their forefront rather than relying on brand recognition/resting on their laurels of the celebrity creative directors
>>

>>
>>10850105
Plenty of basic bitches wear Gap, Penneys, and random <whatever> brands also. It seems like you would fit in with more than half of those on this board who can't afford designer clothing on the regular while ridiculing the ones who can.
>>
>>10850155
>he buys into the designer clothes meme!

good goy
>>
>>10850155
I'm not ridiculing your owning designer clothing, I'm ridiculing your autistic echochamber where everyone who has a different taste than yours and dresses in brands mentioned above is automatically basic and a pleb, case in point.

Get it in your thick head that brands and price mean very little if you know how to style them, and if you buy all designer just to feel better about yourself and placate your sense of insecurity than you're a bigger eejit than the most basic of bitches.

But seeing as I'm on /fa/ I don't think I'm gonna convince you to change your mind since you'll just keep strawmanning and calling me basic because I'm not stupid enough to buy 4000 quid basic white tees, so whatever.
>>
I live in CA and I've never seen a white woman wear anything that could even be remotely considered /fa/ approved. Usually leggings and a hoodie as if they're constantly going somewhere to buy weed.

Lately they've started to wear black-inspired hipster clothing but even that is minimal effort on their part.

The only girls that I've seen consistently work on their style is asian girls from middle class and up families. Their outfits are always on point.
>>
>>10849280
Look at /cgl/.
>>
>>10850169
I'm not sure what you're referring to but the designer clothes I've purchased have generally been better in terms of fit, fabric and overall quality.

>>10850196
You've got style. Okay, that's appreciable. But those boots look like they're made of plastic and I'm having trouble taking that faux leather seriously. You sure you aren't shopping the same place as other basic bitches?
>>
>>10850281
What? I haven't posted any pictures. I look nothing like the girl in OP pic either.
>>
>>10850292
Point being you blend in with basic bitches because you shop the same stores where inexpensive plastic boots and faux leather is sold. I'm having trouble discerning you from them regardless of personal style.
>>
>>10849698
Or just knit them yourself faggot.
>>
>>10850321
Can you read? I don't dress like the girl in pic. You don't know what I look like. That's like saying 'you must be vegan because you have salad in your shopping basket'.

I sincerely hope that at least your mammy and daddy have style because you clearly haven't got any of your own.

And had you bothered to look up any of the 'whatever' brands I mentioned you'd see that Ferragamo shoes cost a pretty penny and are Italian leather, since you seem to judge quality by price alone. Please stop embarrassing yourself.
>>
>>10850068
palm d'or nigga
>>
>>10850355
You mentioned several inexpensive and mall-tier brands, so I can only assume you dress like the basic bitches who wear clothes from those same places because what else do you dress in? I wouldn't imagine much designer when the names you mentioned are so few in number that they seem likely to be birthday gifts from Dad.

Because unless you're Fanny Rosie it's a style that's difficult to be taken seriously in, impractical for everyday wear and unflattering to a lot of people.

I appreciate the pieces but I would never wear them myself.
>>
>>10851489
Super small segment of /cgl/ owns real brand dresses and those that do its only like 2-4 "cords" aka fits they bought second hand.

But they buy the dresses to have sex in them a few times to please whatever guy they're fucking then sell to the next girl.

Also you should see the amount of bullshit taobao clothing they get.

$25 shipped will clothe the average /cgl/ girl in cheap Chinese crap for 2 years while they blow their pay checks on booze, JoAnn's fabric and convention fees

Oh and pay a photographer if they don't feel like fucking him

One of the problems I see a lot on /fa/ is that the approach to men's fashion seems to focus on current it brands and the micro trends within those (like the Rick goth ninja hype that was impossible to escape) whereas women's fashion takes more of a trend trickle down approach, so they'll take the 70s look that was big in the autumn or that luxe geek look Gucci were doing and find the pieces at a fraction of a price in fast fashion stores, where the aim is a nod to the prevailing trends rather than to the hot brand. Which is an approach that isn't appreciated here which is why so much of /fa/ is scoffing over women and their basic bitch Zara shit
>>
>>10852761
But the knock off glasses are cool for an Instagram selfie and never worn again. /fa/ historically took the direction of the Antwerp 6 and Japanese ethos being averse to the throw away society of the greater society in Europe and America

Cgl and women overall take the concept of throw away society and turbocharged it with trendy goods from southeast Asia and China

>>10852805
You're saying that as if I said something to contradict it. A trend doesn't have to be 3 months, and I could have used a better term than micro trend, but I couldn't think of the correct way to phrase it.
Although you do have to admit peak Rick on here was about 2 years ago and it's kept more to specific threads now.

NorCal ain't shit /fa/m, they're nothing but old money and trees up there. I don't consider SF part of NC, since they're too lively. Anyways, back on the topic of Asians and their fits, SoCal tends to try more but I still see them falling back on the safety leggings and oversized outerwear of choice too often -- then again it's at least proven to be comfortable so they can't be blamed for it. bags are whatever works best down here, never see them touting some brand name bullshit unless they're getting it as a gift, and after a couple instagram pics it's never to be seen again since they probably don't wanna use it. clothes are whatever works best/makes them attractive(r, if they're already decent to begin with), with the occasional experimental person or weeb here and there. I see lots of girls dressed relatively well when they're not being lazy in comfortable clothing, and most the time a lot of them shop for basics at those mall-tier places still.
