6. What are some rules about dressing you follow, but you wouldn’t necessarily recommend to others?

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

Dress should b attractive and comfortable not uncomfortable n sombre

I dress for comfort and style. I make jewelry that surprises. I don't makeup my face every day but always wear earrings.

Wear as many patterns as possible. I say this because...well, it’s a very gingerly process. Choosing appropriate patterns to pair together into wearable outfits, that is. You’ve got to have an eye for it, I think it’s something I’ve taught myself how to do it successfully over the last couple years. I’ll even ask my roommate Emily, I’ll be like, “Hey...does this go with this?” Gotta get that outside insight, that second pair of eyes ya know.

Now a days I dress for comfort. I feel it always the best look for going out in public.

Nothing matchy matchy. But close.
Interesting jewellery goes with classic or more plain items, and often creates talking points... and draws attention away from 'problem areas'.
Sometimes I like the way I feel in a garment, more than the way I look in the garment. I'm starting to try and wear those clothes (in a bid to wear things that I feel confident in) more often.
I never iron anything until immediately before I wear it. Can't stand an ironing fest.
Typically always iron everything, but probably not that well.
