6. What are some rules about dressing you follow, but you wouldn’t necessarily recommend to others?
Cover your stomach. I believe myself to be pretty chubby, which is why I do it, but encourage other girls to think differently and be confident... I just wish I could convince myself of the same thing!
I tend to wear baggy, loose fitting clothes, and I tend to wear what many people might wear as a dress as a tunic or long top over trousers. I do that to hide the fact that I have a round, protruding belly. I wouldn't necessarily recommend wearing baggy, loose fitting clothing to other people as I do think it has a tendency to make the rest of your body look bigger than it actually is - something I often think when I look at myself in the mirror after having taken off a loose-fitting top or dress. But for me it works, and I'm generally comfortable with the way I look. I also wear a lot of black - again because it suits my shape and makes me feel slimmer. But I don't necessarily think that wearing black all the time is a good thing to do. People start to notice it. My boyfriend always comments on how black my wardrobe is - not in a rude or disappointed way, but it is an observation. He's encouraged me to add little bits of colour to my outfits, whether that be a scarf or a necklace (he bought be a blue gemstone necklace to wear with my black dresses!) and that's been good for me. Maybe it will encourage me to start wearing more colour.
I recommend my style to anyone who asks.
Always try and look sexy but not slutty
I like modesty in the way I dress. My definition of sexy is probably quite conservative for a lot of people.
Too loose is better than too tight.
Always bring a scarf with you,the weater may change and you don't want to get sick.
Comfortable doesn't mean ugly.
Don't try too hard.
Having tight fitting clothes that hold in my fat lol
Experiment with different layers, and don't worry about whether or not it's necessarily "flattering" -- if you feel cool, you probably look cool. Also, don't mix leather colors (shoes/bags/belts) or hardware carelessly. Be careful about mixing "vibes" -- not patterns or textures or even weird color combos, but I don't ever wear something that says "fiesta" with something that says "mod," for example.
I love wearing hats year round; lightweight fedora in summer, wool fedora in the fall and winter. I wouldn't recommend a hat for every head, however. Hats are not so common that every person is comfortable in one. Nor do hats suit every face.
Wearing red lipstick when my hair is dyed red. Wearing black pants for weeks on end.
Never wear somthing too tight or too skimpy.
Don't wear jeans to work (not because I'm not supposed to, but to make a clear line between work and free time, and because I look young and I'm not taken seriously in casual clothing). Don't wear high heals.
If it is too tight in the butt or too short, it is a no-go. Never wear heels. Purses must have shoulder straps for hands-free use; backpacks preferable.
Try to make yourself look smaller, less fat, try to disappear
I love to feel attractive and I like to look like someone who cares. I care, and I want to surprise, like I'm having fun with my looks. Never, never trying too hard.
I won't be in pain or discomfort just to look good. If I have to keep adjusting, checking, or rearranging myself I won't wear it.
I wear the clothes and shoes that I want regardless of temperature or season; I will always sacrifice practicality for fashion. I don’t wear a bra in any setting or for any occasion unless I'm wearing something sheer. I enjoy wearing leggings (actual leggings, not tights—leggings are opaque, tights are not) as pants, power clashing, and overdressing.
rules i follow are dress for yourself. dont let anyone tell you what you should wear or what looks good on you.
COMFORT first, not caring about the way i look at all.
Be a bit clashy. Lots of bright colours or some contrasting prints are great. I would recommend this though.
Never wear anything you are not comftorble with. High heels are not for me. Accessorise, but only a little, with a man's watch and dainty gold jewerly. I prefer a monotone palate, because it will last forever. The rule if you're wearing a loose bottom, than wear a tight short and the otherway around works well for almost anybody. I am not known to break that rule, except with boyfriend jeans. I love big coats, and coats/jackets in general because they make a statement and make my basics more intrensting. I also love my wide brimmed black felt hat for bad hair days. Be timeless, but stay current. A new belt or adidas stan smiths may be enough to update your look this season.
Wear something that sets you apart. Wear something that is interesting for the sake of it being interesting.
Try to look like an "artist" (though this can be interpreted however one feels on any given day.)
Dressing according to the season or weather sometimes it might go wrong
Only wear pieces in your chosen color palette: black, gray, white, and earth tones.
Dress in what you feel good in. This is a hard one because not everyone feels good in work clothes.
Make sure something matches. My biggest pet peeve is when someone's outfit is comprised entirely of different colors with no one color in common to pull it together.
black is appropriate for each situation
