Been lurking for a few hours out of curiosity since I never cared about fashion until 4am
so far I have learned
>more guys on this thread than I imagined
>I have no sense of fashion or 'cores'
>pic related, my christmas shit
ITT: bash on the amerifat's no taste
your pic is really small
are you actually fat? this determines whether it even matters what you wear
also most dudes on /fa/ do not give a fuck about women's fashion because they are vain and are constantly looking for things which benefit them, women's clothes need not apply
OP just state your height and weight I can't guarantee nobody will ask for pics of you / your feet / back of your left knee / whatever but it'll give an estimate as to whether you can be /fa/ or not
hint: don't lie it's anonymous
hint 2: you're not fashionable yet judging by your OP pic
well, the lounge pants are real monsters
>are you actually fat?
nah not actually fat but I liked the terms I picked up here
>do not give a fuck about women's fashion
gotcha, just thought i'd figure out what is trendy these days because I have to agree that 'murica is behind on fa even though idk dick about it
It's not that America is really behind; it's that the general populace favors less contemporary movements in fashion. There are so many primitive values preserved in the culture that impede styles seen in east asia and some of eu. The best American /fa/sufu posters are just as good as the best EU /fa/sufu posters.
Last week fucked around and got a triple double
I would imagine everyone obsessed with fashion would stay current with the rest of the world
saying that mildly might apply to big cities but damn i'm tired of seeing uggs and northface
pretty qt ratio
everyone on /fa/ calls everyone on /fa/ fat so dont sweat it too much
if u wanna be a true nxtlvl fashionista then pay attention to actual designers and shit and buy lavish pieces
if you wanna look cute, dont get fat and put some effort into how u dress (check lookbooks n shit for inspiration if you have no ideas). don't be a "basic bitch" as the term goes aka brown riding boots / uggs, yoga pants when you're not doing yoga or at home, north face fleece, etc etc.
change it up a bit, check out a different site / store, dig around. u will find some shit.
go to /cgl/ and ask
"hey girls, how do i dress ITA?"
and pretty much follow their advice
disclaimer they like to buy from taobao an online ebay store en masse through shopping services because its like forever 21 suppliers for cents on the dollar
>I have no sense of fashion or 'cores'
yeah stop being portuguese
kids at my college?
no, typical white converse shorts and baggy shirt with 'messy updo'
the 4 other girls in my program dress goth, lesbian, white trash nascar, and black
>my fashion terms
>I don't go to college for fashion design, sweatpants for days
ignorant and quick to assume negative bias' towards people who like clothes?
<<<< here is a woman that posts here (used to), is beautiful, blonde and she's holding an iphone....typical ditzy blonde right?.......she's a med student
she's pretty, but I can imagine her in sweatpants going to college because she's super busy
Sorry. I just don't understand the weird lines of fashion that brands have, like huge wool toga looking things. Even the 'casual' lines are odd to me. The things I picked out are casual for me, but looking at other threads and these lookbooks they seem like they would be taboo to something i'd wear and feel dressed up.
I don't reddit, I chive if anything
>she's pretty, but I can imagine her in sweatpants going to college because she's super busy
shes not wearing sweatpants to college because she is studying in Germany
students here dont go to class wearing sweatpants
Well, i did go to college wearing sweatpants. But I am on a little side campus, so no fashion show like on our central campus. Somedays i just dont care at all, and so are other people. Some guys even walked barefoot in summer
>the dirty south
explains the vocabulary and the behavior
also explains the lack of effort in apperances
honestly, just continue what you're doing currently
it's better to go to school barefoot, and dressed in that heneley blending in with everyone else
than to be that one girl in alabama dressed head to toe in dior that she got cheap on yoox or something
anyways, nice knowing you. hope you enjoyed your one day stay
>implying living in the south makes me like every sterotype of the south
luckily I don't have a southern accent thank god
no one goes barefoot here
I'm going to college for computer networking, probably change that later
might be a tiny campus but this is the only one that learns subnetting.
the fashion here isn't the normal sterotype of 'swamp people' and nascar anyway
glad I entertained this thread to some extent at least
Honestly the best advice I can give you OP is to lurk. You'll get the hang of things after a while. LURK LURK LURK. Sometimes we have grill inspo threads and sometimes we have grills that post in WAYWT threads. Just lurk, ask questions, if you see a guy wearing something you like, check the brand out, look at their women's sections. Make sure you have a definite budget for whatever item. Also never buy designer items at retail price, wait for sales or look some up on ebay/rakuten/yahoo auctions
that fact that you brought up college as something that differentiates you from other rednecks just goes to implicate just how much a redneck you. I have cousins in Houston, Alabama & Nashville and my uncle drives a truck. When I tell people I'm not redneck, I tell them about my cousins in Mumbai and Barcelona, not the fact I'm going to college. If you're not redneck, it's implied you're in college.
i agree, but most of /fa/ is to autistic to pick up on these kinds of social conventions. so they end up wearing a julius blazer with some yohji trousers to their granma's funeral making all their aunts and uncles squirm in embarassment
yeah, I don't dress up to walk around the house on my day off
yay some actual advice
thanks anon. not that I dress up all the time working but it's nice to have decent clothes when I can, because people actually do dress up here in piss poor south.
my family is pretty wealthy, just not me. I work for what I have at least.
thanks for not being ignorant
quality of your small town education aside, you still have the mannerisms and the behaviors of the group of people that you're putting down
like i said earlier, the society dictates what is acceptable as far as fashion goes.
something acceptable in antwerp may not be acceptable in rural america or rural germany
you may differ from your peers, but your peers dictate what is an acceptable amount of deviation from the norm in your small town
do you really want to appeal to people living in fashion forward cities on the east and west coast through social media sites most people in your area don't frequent
or would you rather have friends, a boyfriend and family not making fun of you on xmas?
humor is a method of informing someone that they're not conforming to the the social norms of your immediate society and quality of life will suffer as a result
No problem OP, I can't say I know a lot about women's fashion because what this guy said is essentially true
>most dudes on /fa/ do not give a fuck about women's fashion
But what's usually true in general about fashion is that you gotta work with whatever body type you have. Especially women.
i'm still going to wear this alien sweater on christmas.
no I can't say I don't conform to this 'small town' but at the same time I don't let anything dictate what I wear. Just whatever I like, idc about some name brand all over me if it compliments me.
this is why I like /fa/ so far.
yeah, not that I care that i'm not skinny but finding clothes for curves is awful
neither but I enjoy going to oxford, they know how to party
still going to look fabulous in it
does this help yours?
that's fine, you don't have to reply
have work soon
bye /fa/ it was fun actually
You look like you might actually be kinda cute. WB/10
If you want some actual decent advice you should go to www.reddit.com/r/femalefashionadvice
/fa/ is overrun with autistic 12 year old hypebeasts, and other assorted fuccboi retards with zero sense of style.
Stay away from shapeless/slouchy tops, unles they show some shoulder. The way they will drape onto your hips will conceal the thinness of your upper body and make you look fat.
Stick to form fitting tops to accentuate your hourglass figure. Pants that are form fitting in the thigh with larger leg openings will flatter you best. Ditch the juvenile bitch tennis shoes and buy some flats or something else a little more sophisticated.
Christ, you speak a lot of sense, thank you. I (used to) live in a midlands city of England, it was pretty big, some fashion forward individuals, we even had a shop that sold a lot of Rick Owens, SLP, BBS and more. Even then, wearing high end clothing was almost looked down upon, people liked it, but they would also mock you, and you honestly didn't fit in. Even SLP, which is pretty standard looking clothing for the most part, just a lot skinnier and feminine, was mocked.
The point I'm trying to convey is, even in a slightly fashion orientated city in England I was still ostracised, I cannot imagine how worse it would be in the Southern states of America. Sieg is right, if you want to dress like you're into fashion, nxtlvl or whatever, move to a city where you won't be mocked, looked down upon, or even beaten for it. People on this forum will argue that you should wear what you want and to 'fuck everyone else' but at the end of the day, your safety is more important than being a special snowflake.
