What was your biggest fashion realization?

Mine was that people never "oooh" and "ahhh" over people's clothes. People are attractive because their clothes are clean, warm, and good fitting.

I ditched edgy as fuck for clean denim, and good fitting sweaters.
>>
>>8938018
I noticed that too, funny enough I was speaking about this today.
Girls compliment each other on flower print leggings (she was also fat) whilst I'm wearing a nice fit, that's just the way it is.

If a man was to compliment my fashion taste (or I did) they'd think I'm gay instantly.

I realized that you should just cop the expensive and/or high quality version of something, otherwise you just keep buying cheap-ass jeans that fall apart when you could have got something like Acne's in the first place.
>>

>>8938040
Op here. This is my point exactly. Just make your silhouette as trim as possible, and wear unoffensive clothes.

You can't get more attractive than that.

That you can't be truely /fa/ without a good body. Especially your posture and stance.

That you can be /fa/ even with an average or ugly face. Even if /fa/ is too insecure and biased to admit that as a fact.

That the only way to be less insecure is to stop craving for attention.

That most of the population thinks I'm gay, even when I'm out with my girlfriend.
I was at Jcrew with my girlfriend and had her pick out whatever coat she wanted and I'd get it for her. The woman working there said "oh you two can have the big room so you can go in together", which never happens at department stores with a male and female customer. Then when we came out, she said "oh i'm so happy you have such a great friend to help you decide". Fuck.

yeah, I realized that a long time ago. It was also when I started dropping the pretentious attitude I had around me as well.

The reality is this for me - I'd rather spend my money on a bunch of cool and interesting pieces than something like drugs, vidya, or some other waste of money. Other than the fact that the only place I could probably shop since I'm so skinny is like UO or H&M, although parts of this do it for others, I don't drop 200+ On a pair of jeans for another person. I do it because I like it, and it feels good to get a quality product.

I mean, why do any of you buy name-brand food when usually the generic is just as good? It might taste slightly better, but is anyone gonna really notice if you serve them Wal-Mart mac n cheese instead of Kraft? Probably not.

But I notice, and at the end of the day YOU are the most important person in the world, and when you are happy and pleasant, than others will be happy and pleasant around you.

I've had a couple realizations recently.. One was that I need to stop buying so much crap for the sole reason that it's on sale, or clearance, or whatever so I feel like I'm getting a good deal. Often times I end up regretting the purchase (whether it be only $20, $40, whatever) and never wearing the garment because it was an impulse buy and not something I actually needed / fit in to my wardrobe. Those small price tags add up over time.

Second recent realization goes along with OP's. Sometimes, less is more / simplicity is best. A fit that I've been doing recently that has really been working for me is plain, well-fitting white crew neck t-shirt, dark slim jeans, and some type of simple shoes (usually my Clark's desert boots). Looks classic and clean.

Third realization (not a recent one, I discovered this years ago) was that fitness is just as important as -- if not more important than -- what you're wearing.

I think that having no scent is ideal. Wash yourself, don't apply stinky perfumes or hair products.

Of course I was raised in a Middle eastern neighborhood where every dude applied a liter of perfume to themselves every day and dressed like they were in a Jersey Shore / Godfather crossover. They made me repulsed at the scent of cologne.

I promise you that there are more fragrances out there than you can fathom, and you just need to investigate which ones suit you best and are pleasant to your senses.

And when I say "you need to," I mean.. It's fine if you don't want to wear one, but don't be convinced that you hate how they all smell. Finding and wearing a fragrance that you enjoy is a very fun, subtle way to enhance every-day life.
>>
>>8938270
But that's the point. Having a skill at something artistic, especially art or music, is the most effective way to sharpen your mind and make it more intelligent, if that's what you want. Like knowing constellations and be able to say something about the stars in the sky, or be able to pick a leaf and say what tree it is from. Y'know?

Source? That just sounds like pretentious bullshit. The reading part already covers the sharpen your mind and make it more intelligent. Playing an instrument will make you smart in some ways sure, but hardly in ways that will contribute very much to your general appearance, unlike being well-spoken and having general knowledge.

I dunno I feel that in myself, after I picked up sketching and doing pieces of art in my own free time, I have become better at things like judging distance, hand eye coordination etc. What the poster realised in his list was that it doesn't all stop at your appearance, it goes deeper than that, it isn't only about making yourself look and smell good, it is also being fashionable in character. I'm not trying to be an asshole here I'm honestly invested in that list that he made, like, it was really spot on.
>>
>>8938143
I know these feels to an extent, but only when I'm out solo or with friends. When I'm with my gf people don't think I'm gay (why would they?). If they do, they are thinking it completely to themselves. You and your gf must be very anti-PDA or something.

But yea I can't tell you how many times I've been approached (whether by gay guy, or a fag-hag type) giggly "Um I have a question.. Are you gay?"

I get asked way less now that I live in the city. Before, living in a rural area, it was a lot worse.

It gives you something to talk about. If I had no hobby like playing an instrument, I would seem bland, I might as well have watched every episode of House Wives of Orange County
It is as much of a vital part of character as an occupation. It is also effective when battling depression or low self-esteem. It is in my case

But now we're talking having a hobby, or being an interesting person in general. You can achieve that in thousands of ways without having ever so much as touched an instrument.

So you weren't arguing about the hobby thing, you just hate the idea of playing an instrument???

I'm most definitely not arguing against having a hobby, I just didn't agree with the original list that had "play at least one instrument, for your own pleasure" as a fashion realization, like it's something everyone should do because it helps in their general appearance. My immediate thought was playing the violin or the piano, just because that's what the stereotypical rich and cultivated people do.
>>
>>8938667
Well then you're wrong. I dunno what the list maker was thinking, but I'm the only person I know who plays an Instrument and I have an empty wallet most of the time. All the rich people I know don't play instruments, they take vallium

>>8938690
>All the rich people I know don't play instruments
Most rich people today aren't cultivated. Think upper middle class/upper class back in the day, playing a classical instrument used to (and still is to some extent) considered 'classy'. I do actually happen to have rich friends who play the violin and the piano.

I agree mostly. I'm not so sure about men because I pay more attention to women's fashion, but I've seen some heavier women pull off clothing extremely well, but I think the confidence of those women helped a lot and I imagine all of this would work just as well with men.

Big women who dress for their shapes and know their palettes will always seem much more fashionable than big women who try to squeeze into smaller clothing, dress in over-sized clothing, or purposely dress in a more provocative way that doesn't flatter their shape to show that bigger girls can be just as sexy as thinner ones. Even the ones that use shapewear or are lucky enough to be heavy and have a relatively flat tummy can be pretty /fa/.

Not quite sure how /fa/ feels about her, but I like the way Trainor dresses most of the time.The way the colors and the A-line shape dress help shape her body. It doesn't hide the fact she's big, but it's still looks good on her. I don't think I'd like this fit nearly as much if it were on a thinner woman with less pronounced curves.

But, yes, its definitely much MUCH easier to be /fa/ with a good body. Most fashionable, interesting pieces are made with thin/average sized people in mind, but not having a good body doesn't mean you can't be fashionable. You just have to work a lot harder to get there.

It's about the clothes, imo.

>>
>>8938750

Or they could work hard and dress for the body they already have.

It depends on the person. They can go in whatever direction they chose. I was simply stating that being heavy doesn't necessarily mean its impossible to dress well.
>>
>>8938787
Or they could work hard and get a better body so it's easier to look good in clothing, but also you have a better face and get to enjoy benefits not pertinent to aesthetics like lower risk of heart disease and diabetes, and improved stair-climbing ability.

If you choose to work hard to dress for a shit body instead of improving your body, you're not effay.

Rule 1 of good fashion is a recognition of the fact that the clothes are not the center piece; they are the frame. Your body/face is the art that is being framed. When someone looks at you, the clothes should not be what is grabbing their attention.

Rick's #2 rule of fashion confirms. "Working out is modern couture. No outfit is going to make you look or feel as good as having a fit body. Buy less clothing and go to the gym instead."


The attitude that fashion is about clothes, instead of using clothes AS A TOOL, is a bad attitude to begin with.

Nah, as long as they go after the right look, being fat and dressing well is a fuck of a lot better than being a fat slob.

Best look for a fat dude is to grow a nice beard and go full lumber jack, and that only works with guys who are built, but chubby. Not just regular fat people.

Fat people who just try to emulate what they see on skinny people however never pull it off. Pic related. It's also an absolute shit fit. I don't know why designers even make XL and XXL sizes.

This is, and this is an actual fact, entirely subjective. Whether you'd like to believe it or not.

Go back and reread my post. Not once have I even compared heavy women to thin women. I said, and I can't make this any more simple, that heavier women can be fashionable if they put the effort into it. Some are lost causes, but it isn't impossible.

Apples are fruits and passing off an opinion that they're not would obviously be wrong.

I'm not really, but the argument you're trying to make is hardly relevant to anything I've posted. Fashion is fashion regardless of who it's on. If you really think that fashion is something that has to follow a certain set of rules or guidelines, so be it.

I realized that fashion becomes unpractical past a certain point, like OP said. There's a limit to how edgy you can dress and not have it hurt how most people see you. I'd love to move past wherre I am now and experiment more, but if I do i actually risk people seeing me more negativley. Also, being fit and groomed is infinitley more attractive then being /fa/.

I think most important thing to realize for all the retarded neckbeards and 'enlightened' 17-23 somethings here is that this board is /fa/ - Fashion. It's not /fa/ - Attraction Rules or whatever shit you retards think fashion is. It's not about looking good, it's not about attracting females/opposite gender/preferred gender/god knows what degenerate tumbleristas came up with etc., it's not about faking a lifestyle of an old money inheritor while you make 60k or less, it's not about appearing dark and sophisticated while you do a liberal arts degree at some shithole of an alma mater etc.

Yeah, it's significant, but fashion isn't restricted to any certain body type. If you're not tall and slender, you can still dress well, you just won't be able to pull of the things that tall and/or slender people pull off.

It obviously wouldn't work if they're too fat or disfigured because there aren't going to be any good options for them, but being bigger and not having a good body doesn't necessarily mean you can't be /fa/. It depends largely on the individual. I think people who dress themselves with their body type in mind, focusing in on features they want to accentuate and draw attention away from, experimenting with colors and shapes, and finding their own style, people who seem to put actual effort into the clothes they wear, are pretty /fa/

That's controversial. I can't stand people who claim there's no difference between 'white-label' products and more expensive ones, as if not buying always the cheapest shit was dumb. Man, you're free to make your own choices and buy whatever you want but please don't tell me there is little to no difference between this and that because you're either detail-blind or retarded. Of course the more expensive stuff is not always better (see beats, macs, etc.), but there's no great conspiracy out there to make you pay more for the same quality.

Not so much the way I dress as it is my general appearance that has caused this type of attention.

>5'7
>Slim
>Nice physique
>Coiffed hair
>Pretty-boy face

Btw I'm not trying to "talk myself up" by saying those things about myself. In fact I'm sure I'll get plenty of hate on this for the 5'7 part (something I'll never get about this board).

But I dress rather dad-core (for lack of a better term), or just basic, classic fits.

As for why you've never been asked if you're gay,, Some people just have that "look" about them and others simply don't. Apparently, to some people, I just have that look. Hasn't bothered me or been an issue for years; it used to be more annoying before I gained more confidence in being able to pick up girls.

never think about pieces of clothing in a vacuum. /fa/ especially constantly perpetuates this thinking, there's way more talk of individual pieces. it's the fits that matter.

everything matters when putting together an outfit that looks good (=actually makes you look better than you do). color schemes in particular i've become really anal about. you will quickly get a feel for what pieces of clothing look good, but to put it all together is different story.

the other day, I'm walking past old asian couple on a bus stop, and the man just kinda turns away and tries to make himself as small as possible, woman looks at me, he says something to her as I approach, and she does the same
????????????????????????????
>>
>>8938018
I think this is pretty much the same thing you said, but people will treat people who dress and look better but they won't know it.

You know when people say shit like "I like him but idk why", it's because of your looks. Even if you aren't obviously good looking, if you dress well people will just subconsciously treat you better.

For men specifically:

>a decently dressed man with a natural disposition > a very well dressed man who looks like he's trying too hard

Also, men generally care more about looks than women. Everyone who thinks that they'll suddenly get any woman they want because they have nice hair is fooling themselves. It's the boost in confidence that having nice hair gives you, not the nice hair.

Fashion is about all of those things. If how other people perceive you isn't a concern, then you wouldn't bother spending $200 on some jeans. We're social beings. Every aspect of our public persona is influenced by the people around us.

Agreed. She's a fucking spiteful, jealous bitch who probably made that song after someone commented on her weight or something.

>>8938343

He never said anything about dress being the chosen / only / ultimate method of communicating the self to others, he only said that it does communicate SOMEthing, which is true.

Whether you want to admit it or not, the way a person is dressed says something about the person, and everybody, even subconsciously, makes assumptions or generally analyzes what they see others wearing and creates a mental image of some sort. It's inevitable.

Clothing as communication relates to that analysis, it's how you can change things up and present yourself in a way that you might feel reflects some parts of you that you want to highlight to others.

Of course, it depends on the person and the situation. The most interesting people can be dressed like average joes, and vice versa.

"Fashion is one of the most effective forms of instant communication and self-expression, but it doesn’t compensate for having something interesting to say."
>>
>>8938018

I think one of the main in recent experience has been that personal style naturally follows life experiences, it isn't something that you somehow discover or cultivate through the internet alone,

Funny thing is I always knew this and would preach it to others but hadn't realized that I don't actually take my own advice, or involve myself in any of my other interests outside of fashion.

"Personal style" became some kind of warped aspirational formula / step by step evolution for me, resulting in alot of confusion and disappointment. I thought I'd been doing everything right but the end result wasn't what I expected.

Been taking it easy on fashion and clothing, and branching out into other cultures instead. Much more pleasurable and organic.

Been going to a few concerts recently and realized that I had quite a biased judgmental viewpoint when it came to how others dressed. Why did these people choose to dress this way? What are they like as an individual? Lots of cool and interesting people that I probably dismissed as looking, therefore being, "x" or "y". Still constantly have to remind myself not to be such an insecure fuck who judges everyone else within this narrow scope of "my personal high fashion tastes"

I am more and more convinced that a man would suit me better as a SO than a girl, everytime I think about women I only see them as inferior to us. Be it on an intellectual level or anything else. Most women crave for attention, are whores, their only hoobies when they are young is talking bad about others, sucking dick, doing "drugs" that their "boyfriend" is handing them, drink and party...thats about it.

I wish I was gay, at least I wouldnt find the thought of me or someone else putting his /my dick into my/his ass repulsive. But I am afraid I wouldnt find a nice boyfriend either, maybe its my attitude and my sheer fear of being hurt...and the constant pain that is my inability to drive myself to do something that is good for me...I am just feeling so empty.

Mine was when I stopped spending £300/400 a month going out drinking and smoking and started spending it on nice, simple and good fitting clothes.

I realized how badly worn my old clothes were after buying new ones and after I got a vaporizer to help quite smoking I realized I was smelling better (Aftershave was lasting longer and didn't have that smokey smell on my clothes)
>>

What do you do?
>>
>>8943338
What do you mean? I am genuinely curious, I will take any real offer for help to get out of my desperate situation, seriously!

Do you mean I project my own unworthy self onto others? You have to be more specific bro, I can't read your mind and I am not too much into psychoanalysis.

So what is your story? I would really like to know what kind of guy you are so I can maybe relate to you in a way...I know it sounds dumb but I can't talk to anyone about this.

my terms may be alittle off, i just thought i would get the ball rolling on you researching yourself, as you seem to be exploring your discontent on a surface level, but haven't come to a solution yet. im by no means a professional, i just know psychology has helped me feel better.

intro to cognitive therapy:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HoFNs-3r0Go

basically, your perception may seem realistic, but its actually rooted in primitive emotions and defensiveness. think about it does it make logical sense that all women are just giant untrustworthy chavs? hopefully not. also youre either a:not gay but trying to avoid women in self defense b:in denial about being gay...
>>
>>8943549
projection: perhaps you are projecting how untrustworthy you are, or how cruelly you've hurt people in the past. If thats the case try to hold yourself to the same standards that you hold the female population. maybe im way off, but thats what projection is
>>
>>8943549
I know what Cognitive Therapy is, I just didn't get your point about projection.

I'm thinking about going to a local therapist tomorrow.

I'm glad to hear others have overcome something like this, but it is so deeply embedded into myself that it almost feels as if this is actually me, I can't imagine getting rid of my cynical view on the world and my self defensive act of playing everything down and making it seem like I don't care anyway, I mean, I don't care right now mostly but I know that I could and I should care about things, like my graduation next year and how I get to it, learning to make music, getting to know people. Instead I am just waiting for death as a matter of fact, altough it will not come by very soon likely, I am only 18 years old...I thank you for that advice of yours, truly! I hope I don't sound pathetic :)

>>8943554
I don't hate women or something, but it somehow strikes me everytime I get to meet some new one, it doesn't matter if ugly or not, self-conscious or not, that all of them are the same, just stupid bitches who have no value to add to my life.

I don't think I've hurt anyone very cruelly (at least not people that were close to me), I am just not that kind of guy who especially likes spending time with others. I mean I get along with others pretty good, I look good, I consider myself smart but I just don't really want to have any friends, but on the other hand I want, but without any restrictions for me. I know that I am wrong in a lot of ways and maybe I'm wrong thinking that way about women, but I just can't control my damn thoughts.
>>
>>8943605
sometimes i get really frustrated in boring small talk and find saying something off the top of my head to change the subject, or even being a little obnoxious to knock people out of mundane politeness can go a long away. also im 22 and with adhd its reallly hard to keep a conversation or even spend any large amount of time with people before wanting to go home to draw/make music/play vidya, but its important to socialize a little bit anyways. remember its perfectly reasonable to feel like an outsider and dont expect 4chan to be able to steer you into grace :)

good luck at the therapist im sure they'll help you more than i

that ultimately everything has been done before and it's just a big cycle (saw an ancient vase with an amazon in slim fitting black trousers printed on it, illustrations of romans with skirts over skinny trousers, egyptians with sidecuts) there is only so much a human can do with his fabric and body and the configuration of a society and it's institutions is the only thing that matter when it comes to what's acceptable
the fashion industry, magazines, movies and famous musicians dictate what is en vogue now and people dress like that, it becomes the new uniform for a certain smaller or larger group but again you can deconstruct what these fuckers wear into the same basic shapes and ideas that have existed since thousands of year
i also realised that there is no coherent culture anymore in our world and that therefore it ultimately doesnt fuckin matter what you use protect your naked monkey ass from the enviroment
i wear what i personally think looks good with no regard wether it's in trend, though i stay unoffensive because i believe there is no statement to be made through consumption of textile or rather it would be retarded to seek individuation through consumption
i embraced nihilism and realised the only thign i have to do is have fun and make nice things
clothing is just one form of beautiful thing and i try to look at it without bias of the time and place i was born and the time and place i currently exist in

That's not really hate although a little mad in wording. Girls are better described as boring. They are just genuinely uninteresting to talk to. My gf has lots of crazy stories but she sucks at telling them. The content is there but the delivery is boring. If she wasn't cute I wouldn't go out of my way to hang out with her.

>>
>>8943715
oh this actually makes sense
apart from thinking my ex was cute and sexual drive to her there was nothing else
well there was at first, but I feel like I progressed towards faster, or maybe we progressed in different directions

there are some girls I can talk to with interest though, very few, but there are some.
>>
>>8943715
Yeah, this seems more like my POV, I don't really hate them but I genuinely think most of them are dumb, it's not like most men are other on that part but I don't want to share my life with a man y know?

I mean even the "smart" girls are just boring, and after all they are all the same it seems to me.

And to add to this, I hate most men even more than most women so there's that, I just don't like humans that much in general.
>>
>>8943734
See, I have honestly never met a really interesting girl, I seriously don't even know how to fucking tell if she is "interesting" on an average girl kind of level or if she really has thoughts that can add to my perception of things.
>>
>>8943734
I know a girl like that too. Coolest girl I know. Sings well, plays, makes her own jewelry, tries her best to keep up conversationally. Great music taste. She's not very hot tho and is kind of socially awkward.

yeah i should rephrase perhaps
theres only so much that can be done in the category of practical (read wearable without impeding yourself) clothing using traditional fabrics
and when viewed as consisting of basic parts, i mean not seeing a fit that may be novel in regards of the configuration of it's part only as something new, but seei it as something that can be taken apart into pieces that resemble what has existed since ages

The only girl like that I know, to kinda 'open' her I just opened myself

you know, like pour yourself out, speak what you really mean etc etc, dont think about framing it some way or being polite or shit like that. and some fucking conversations we had were kinda obscure and so interesting, like on drugs but without drugs, just being sincere

Dunno if makes sense

and that which configuration of these pieces seems acceptable in the eyes of the general member of a culture is completely dependent on how various factors play together so it's kinda random-because each of the factor is controlled by people and things that don't neccesary depend on each other or work together- what is acceptable and en vogue which is why we shouldnt care, because caring about random shit that just is because it is feels stupid

you become efficient about what you do, dress functional and inoffensive while staying disconnected from arbitrary trends, but retain a sharp aesthetic to reflect your efficient mind (which is just about the only thing in the world that can make sense, becose it fukin invented sense) just do things you like and as much as you can as long as it doesnt impede you at interacting with others to the level you feel you need to not feel lonely

None of that is in the definition of fashion. Fashion is Social. Full stop. If fashion was wearing clothes for myself I would wear oversized sweatpants/sweatshirt with slippers wrapped in a snuggie when I go to parties. Unless you think that wearing jeans instead of seatpants is "trying to be attractive"?
>>
You know what my realization was? If you put too much stock in anything you read on fashion web sites, you will look like a fucking loser and act like one too. Look at the fits, learn a thing or two, and cop as you please, but try not to rot your brain too much.
