6. What are some rules about dressing you follow, but you wouldn’t necessarily recommend to others?
I always wear short sweaters as I am petite. It doesn’t work for most women my age.
I can get dressed in about two minutes any given day.
Stay away from trends at my age
Try to limit colors -- i wear primarily gray, blue, and black with a green, coral, red and oatmeal thrown in
never match tight bottoms with tight top (loose-loose is ok). usually long sleeves. layer. avoid christmas colors. think about shoes and socks.
I don't wear all flowing baggy, head to toe. I feel that on me it looks sloppy, and that i need some definition and contrast - either fitted at waist, top or bottom. But on some people it looks great!
It's not a rule and probably pretty common but I prefer wearing stuff with contrasting silhouettes. If I wear a wide legged pair of pants I pair them with something tighter on top. If I wear a flowy blouse I wear it with something tighter on the bottom.
I dress totally according to my mood but I guess I won't recommend this to others because it might not be applicable for everybody. A lot of people have told me that they can't figure out what my fashion style is because they have always seen me in varieties of clothing. Yes, I dress up as bubbly, casual, chic, classic etc. So if a person is seeing me for the first time, it is impossible for them to guess my personality entirely based on my clothing. However, I have come across a few people who cannot relate to this because they told me that keeping a fashion style constant makes them feel more comfortable and helps them in building up their personality in a certain way. Hence, I guess this really differs from person to person.
Never go out the door without looking your best . . . it can be paralyzing to mind, body and soul.
I am shy of bright colours.
I value comfort over everything else. Even style. I would rather be underdressed and comfortable.
I follow some stupid rules about coordinating colors and shapes that I learnt as a child and that are maybe a bit outdated
I usually wear casual but many people don't like that so if you don't feel comfortable of what you wear be free to change
It's okay to be the best dressed in a room.
I always, always wear my pants pretty snug. It's a matter of preference, really. I still wear a lot of skinny jeans and I like flares a lot, I can't make myself get into boyfriend jeans.
I wish I was willing to play around with baggier bottoms, like paperbag pants because they're really pretty universally flattering.
Absolutely minimal accessories.
May this one: I try to wear something that I made myself everyday. That may be a Sweater, a Shirt, a belt or even my Hand bag. Making Things takes a lot of time and also some skill. So it is not something everyone can do.
what feels most comfortable and what most expresses my mood that day. if I feel like baggy I will wear baggy no matter the occasion. if I feel like my most eccentric I will wear my most eccentric no matter the occasion.
Not wearing skinny jeans (especially leather)
For me personally, I like to cover my chest and expose my legs. My legs are long and in good shape, but my chest is on the small side.
I like to be covered up. Diane Keaton thing.
minimum skin showing
I really don't have rules exactly. Maybe it's a problem.
Same answer as in number 5.
I love the design of office clothes such as a suit or a shirt but I have never had an office job so I have to undermine the power of the office wear with something casual such as sneakers or a t shirt.
I don't feel like I am as conscious about what I wear sometimes. I am a feeling based person so I usually base things on how I am feeling that day. This way of working sometimes yields not such aesthetic results or somedays I have no clue how I feel and this creates stress and indecision. Maybe not choosing clothes based on feeling? Maybe finding a better way to choose what to wear?
Subscribing to fashion rules. Don't. Every new trend breaks the previous trend.
I have a relatively small wardrobe. Perhaps too small. But I like having a few pieces that I can rely on and wear to shreds.
I never ever wear anything that hurts my feet. Tall heels will never receive attention from me. Platforms are a yes. Go go? Hell yes. If it hurts now then imagine it after 8 hours of standing and walking!
I hate trying on
I don't care about looking respectable.
