Since deciding to start caring a more about my clothing, and getting feedback from you effay lot, it's been going... slowly.
I've purchased quite a bit of new stuff, but now I'm worried I'm on the wrong track here. I thought I'd post an image of my usual non-girl clothes to remind myself of what I'm working with here, as I reassess what the hell I am doing. Fuck yeah, Palladiums.
Maybe it's just me, but it feels like every time I try to dress more feminine, I end up feeling like I'm dressing like my mom. To further hammer this home, my attempt at a feminine tanktop did not seem particularly successful in yesterday's WAYWT. I have plans to return a couple of items this afternoon that I'm worried are too momcore.
The point of this thread:
Could I get some inspiration, in the form of thoughts, or, pics for women's fashion that:
- doesn't have an asian model, those people could wear trash bags and still look good.
- would work well for an overweight female as I continue losing weight
- will help me decide on what proper basics I need
- will help me decide on if I want to pursue colorful clothing or darker shades
The tanktop in question.
I would love some feedback!
When I posted this, I was recommended to do away with this tank top. Not to mention, someone else wondered if it was a troll post.
It looks momcore imo because of your body frame (I know you're losing weight atm but still) and because your General choice in "girly" clothes are quite bad, like the last fit you posted in that waywt (no offence)
yo what the fuck are you doing?
you need to stop
the reason why you dont feel feminine is because you dont have a feminine body
gurl go back to gym and stop wasting yo money clothes you gonna throw out in 6 months
Do away with it. It isn't flattering
They honestly have really cute things for beginner fashion. Not the best quality but a slightly good start!
I did like these new jeans and shirt that I got, at all places, Costco. Jeans are currently getting hemmed as we speak.
A little embarrassing to shop there, but it's affordable, and I need to keep it that way while I lose weight. Expensive cops will come when I'm at a much lower weight.
she looked more attractive when she was heavier
big girls think that when they lose a small amount of body fat they automatically get fucking kate middleton hourglass-core
but in reality these bitches have linebacker shoulders, big ass calves and are generally fucking masculine as shit.
likt this bitch here is more man than half of the guys in this thread wearing rick
i bet her voice is deeper than yours too
she should go back up to chubbers
inb4 sieg you're an asshole YOU CAN TOTALLY DO IT GURL
yeah, she cant run her way into a different genetic structure
holy fuck this looks REALLY REALLY bad. Do you even lurk? Everything about this outfit is disgusting don't you try these things on at the store, it looks like you seriously are completely lost and have no idea what you're doing. We can't work with this, you need to develop some taste and LURK MORE to figure out what looks good and what doesn't.
fuckfuckfuck sieg is so on point it's actually not even funny. OP will never have the proportions to be Middleton-tier, but weight loss can go a long way in reducing calf/leg size, and at the very least big hips means a better chance at an okay hip/waist ratio.
I love tall girls, but there's a big difference between tall and big. College volleyball players are big. Karlie Kloss is tall.
Good on you for losing weight and improving yourself
The only tip I have would be to lose more weight. The diversity and range of clothing that will look good on you will increase exponentially when you are more slim.
Don't listen to people telling you to "lurk", /fa/ should not really be taken seriously or a reliable authority on mainstream fashion.
Just start with the basics, go flip through some fashion magazines at the bookstore or library or something. Looking for "inspo" pics (ew fucking cringe) is a terrible approach for beginners as they end up looking really bad because they attempt to emulate without foundational knowledge, which can be picked up from magazines and publications.
All depends on the body type I assume.
I really don't know what to suggest other than that.
there's a whole section for you. pls stop embarassing yourself here
I agree on the lurking. It's hard to lurk when /fa/ is very male-centric. Getting female fashion discussion requires being a little more direct than lurking.
I actually like being on /fa/, I'd be too worried that other fashion sites would be one big circlejerk of tumblr-esque women promoting beauty at all sizes and not being constructive at all.
So important to be thin. This is a good example of how being thin lets you get away with shit that would otherwise look like trash.
Thin girl wearing baggy jeans? "Boyfriend jeans"
Chubby girl wearing baggy jeans? She can't find any that actually fit.
Your weight is not an issue! Lurk and see how chubby girls with the least sense can look decent.
Your problem is that you are devoid of style sense. You are utterly clueless. get some non-lesbian girlfriends girl
>one big circlejerk of tumblr-esque women promoting beauty at all sizes and not being constructive at all.
thats what women want.
and that is what you're asking of us to do for you.
/fa/ will tell you how it is. just take your fatass to FFA on reddit and continue bleaching boots and wearing men's shorts with Hawaiian shirts
then complain about...i don't kate moss or someshit
maybe you can get hitched to a man child who wears the same size cargo shorts you do, who wandered off from r/gaming who wanted to fap at 26?
/perfect lower-middle class love story
>sieg talking about weight problems.
I've seen it all.
seig, you're a very angry person, but you speak the truth.
If there's one thing I'm determined to do, it's to not dress like a college-girl hipster. This came straight from an all-time popular femalefashionadvice post. /fa/ might not have all the answers, but it's angry and anonymous, and there's no better breeding ground for honest opinions.
I'll be honest this fit is real neat
the contrast between the nice shoes and shitty material of the shirt and pants are too much though
Also lose more weight
Also not your personal blog
hi OP, my mom's pretty cool. I hope I can be as fashionable as her one day
when you go shopping, try to go on slow days and get the courage to ask a sales person for tips! if you get on their good side, they might give good insight!
Don't be afraid to ask. Maybe try finding someone who's style you admire at work... and see if they would like to go shopping with you one day.
Go to a proper bra shop and get fitted
I'm going to suggest you start browsing basic beginner fashion sites...
just to get a feel of what aesthetics you might like
$350 rag &bone sweater still looks like shit on him
anyone have the pic of him in MMM?
>an overweight female as I continue losing weight
It's good that you recognize this, and I hope you get good results in your weight loss regime.
Prioritize this above all else.
>Fuck yeah, Palladiums.
I'm not personally a fan of Palladiums, but I can say that they do not work with that outfit.
>help me decide on if I want to pursue colorful clothing or darker shades
I think darker shades are generally more flattering, personally, so I would suggest to focus on those first.
Incorporating whites and greys obviously.
Also those pants and shorts don't look good either.
Get some skirts, not mini.
They look more feminine, and help hide your weight much better than pants/shorts will.
And ofc, simplicity first.
Avoid patterns or complex designs until you have your basics covered, if you can't dress in all solids yet - just limit yourself to 1 piece of patterned clothing per outfit.
Not the best pic, but I'm not going to sit here for more than 2mins to find a better inspo/example.
Also what's the point in buying clothes while your silhette is still changing?
You say you're losing weight, so wear your shitty ass clothes until you reach the weight you want to maintain.
THEN STOP GOING TO COSTCO FOR CLOTHES.
>Quality > Quantity
I don't give a shit if you "don't believe in designer brands". Instead of buying 10 $10 shirts, just buy ONE $100 shirt that makes you feel GREAT.
Seriously. Good clothes from good brands not only make you look good but make you FEEL good. But you have to give in and buy it.
If it's not for you then you'll find out fashion isnt for you. But most people do get a little tingle when wearing good brands and I'm sure you will too.
Just lose the weight and keep lurking.
Also in the mean time buy a nice purse or clutch from coach, burberry/mulberry, jil sander etc etc. and feel fabulous even if you dress like shit at least you have a nice bag.
before you start buying new clothes, ask yourself how you want to dress. how do you want to present yourself? thought about that yet? if yes, well great! next step is to tell us what it is so we could get a better grasp of what you're trying to achieve, since currently how you dress is a clusterfuck -- no flow, no continuity. items either clash, or plain don't look good.
it's easy enough to find inspiration, we're not your henchmen or anything like that. please take the time to look up things by yourself to find a style that you like, then come back here if you want to and ask for feedback after you've bought a few things and tried them out.
Doesn't matter. I'd feel like shit buying clothes from costco.
Yea yeah it's superficial as fuck, but it's the truth.
When you wear a coveted brand, you actually FEEL good as well. No joke. I'm sure most /fa/ users can agree.
Being well dressed makes you well dressed. Taste and style have nothing to do with expense and cost and everything to do with knowing yourself and understanding what works on your body and what you like.
I'm confused. are you OP or just some anon?
I feel bad if you don't get that feeling. It's not like what I'm saying is new.
also why don't you add to the conversation instead of displaying a superiority complex?
>Protip: you're going to have to lose a LOT more weight before you can wear those Palladiums without looking like a massive dyke. I would know.
Everyone's said all there is to say about your fit, so I'll just ask you this: at your fantasy weight, what kind of fit do you want to wear? Can you post some super-ideal pics of women you want to look like?
It's hard to help you unless we know that. While you may not be able to buy the kinds of clothes you'll ideally wear in a few months, you can start to look at shoes, accessories, and beginning picking up similar color schemes and styles.
However, we can't help you if you don't know what you want. I personally like masculine clothing, but I'm smaller than you.
that is the stupid shit someone from /fit/ would say
>cut off all contact with your friends for no reason then talk to them several months later after you start dressing differently
you're dumb lol
I was a fatass like you just 5 months ago. I am 18 y/o 5'5 165
Today I am 125 lbs, and am maybe about half way to becoming skinny. The key things are:
Eat correctly. Cut out all soda and candy(allow yourself a cheat day 2 times a month or so). Because you're a fatass, you can allow yourself junk food every once in a while, but don't base your diet on it. You dont want to eat more calories than you cant burn off, so dont eat a shitton and run a lot and you will see fat shed.
Work out at least 3 times a week.
Whatever you do, DON'T do these things:
don't eat any junk food, just fucking don't do it
after 2 weeks because you aren't seeing instant results
eat less workout more
finally when u aren't a fatass anymore, start finding your own personal style. to sum it up
1.) eat less
2.) work out
3.) stop being a fat ass
4.) start shopping for BASIcs ie: little black dresses.
That's because the mental gymnastics fatasses do to justify their shitty diets is incredible. Also fast food is addictive and it's simply to easy to slip up if you allow yourself to eat it on a cut. Technically, as long as it's within your calorie allowance, you could eat it, but it's pretty damn difficult to stay within that allowance.
I don't think that her weight is even a huge problem if she can focus on finding some flattering dresses and skirts to compliment her shape. Skirts that flare out like A-lines could look lovely. The clothes in her fits make her look sort of fat because they're not suitable for her frame. But really, to wear slim boyfriend clothing like that you do have to be fairy thin.
Not OP, but I do wish there was a fuccboi general for ladies, sometimes.
Because the women in my family dress like old women or like they just popped out of kim kardashian's ass.
And alt. fashion just makes me look immature.
And even though I'm pretty much in the same boat as OP as far as losing weight goes, I'd still like to learn the basics and get a good basis of where to start, y'know?
lurk more, develop a sense of how you want to dress, etcetera. most female fashion forums and blogs's subjects tend to go to one extreme or another -- from fast fashion to runway shows. i agree, a general guide for girls would be pretty great. there is some social misunderstanding that all girls know how to dress themselves, and really we're all just clueless people.
once you've found how you want to dress, the rest is pretty easy imo. although i'm not the best example to be referencing off on this, you get the idea. develop and modify things as you go along, and collect everything.
Does anyone have tips for girls who typically dress in a more masculine/tomboyish style? Should I just be looking at the fashion advice for men? I'm really not the type to wear skirts/dresses but I still want to look decent (but not exactly feminine)
Just curious, how do you want to dress? I see your fits from time to time and they look something in between Japanese girl's fashion & momcore
Don't mean that negatively, just wondering where you're trying to take things
people on FFA dress much better than you, and dress to their body type. cherry-picking a photo of a girl you think dresses poorly to invalidate the entire forum only makes you look even worse.
fa isn't going to give you fashion advice or a springboard you can jump off from; it's a place for people who already have an interest in fashion to cultivate their style. you seem to genuinely lack style. stop thinking you're too edgy and/or special to post on other forums (seriously - you sound like one of those obnoxious girls who say things like "i don't get along with other girls"). start with the basics, and check our forums tailored towards beginners instead of dismissing them.
at least sieg knows how to turn his trip off when he compliments himself. take notes stance.
I thought it was a troll post. You should literally not even be getting feedback on this outfit. You should just be getting rid of all that shit and start again. As far as I'm concerned, none of those individuals pieces could be used in any good outfit.
This is not intended to discourage you, this is just seriously what I think. Maybe you should spend some time on lookbook, come back with a couple of looks that you think you would like to wear, and bring them back to us. Lookbook is kinda basic, but it will be a good starting point for you.
you can do the pinup girl look
loose/crop top type shirts and high waisted shorts are in style and easy to find in most mall stores
(forever21, charlotte ruse - if you're poor)
People like that are cunts.
The kind of person who says that is the kind of person who is too lazy and self centered to even bother putting forth any effort socially. Just a fucking excuse.
Harsh advice but not bad. But fuck lookbook. Those fits are advanced in that they are ambitious but basic in that they are garbage. Just looking at this website now and it's 90% trash, 10% mediocre.
But yes, do check out a few websites for inspiration. I recommend styleforum or superfuture. And lurk here for female inspo and start fem inspo threads as you see fit. And read the sticky. One thing the sticky said that always resonated with me is to be constantly aware. Always be checking out other fits and analyzing them down to the smallest minutiae. And then apply those thoughts to yourself. Self-scrutiny is nothing to fear. Everything that you don't scrutinize will be scrutinized by someone else. Of course a lot of criticisms on /fa/ or anywhere in the world are not constructive and pretty asinine, but you should be able to find a nugget of truth in them and just try to let the rest roll off your back. But also, fashion should be about you. Make sure that you are constantly keeping yourself in mind and one day you will put on a fit that just looks so good and you will feel proud and all of your identity-related personality disorder symptoms will sort of turn positive and it'll be this glowing narcissistic euphoria. You will be the queen that you hail to.
Bluh I feel your embarrassment OP
>Tfw I am working on being trans.
>tfw obviously sub optimal body for women's fashion
>tfw know nothing about fashion and am complete idiot
Not trying to insult you by comparing our situations, but I am glad your thread has people referring to forums that might have better info. I was just lurking here on a whim, definitely feel I don't belong here.
