“Fashion is a form of ugliness so intolerable that we have to alter it every six months.”
― Oscar Wilde

When I was in high school I really didn't care about fashion. My friends though were very fashionable people.

If I'm going to Church I always wear dress pants and a nice shirt. It's unusual for Mexicans to wear suits to church so i rarely wear them. When I'm going out somewhere I put on a t shirt and some shorts, that's about it. It's too hot here in AZ to put on anything else.
In the winter I usually add a scarf.

Only the comfy. I went to prom in sweatpants and a T-shirt, if that says anything.

I wear sweatpants and gym shorts, along with a t shirt. I wear blue jeans when I need to do some physical labor. I never wear a shirt unless I'm in public.

I wear cloths that are from japan cause its wayyyy better than cloths here in america. Its more unique and stylish. I find that most of the people wear the same exact things here and its all the same.

My usual attire consist of dress shirts, ties, black BDUs, and a pair of combat boots with leather gaiters. I often make alterations to my favorite shirts with the addition of fabric, trimming, patches, shoulder boards, collar tabs, and cuff titles. I find the uniform patterns of WWII to be aesthetically appealing, with accoutrements of Sam Browne belts, aiguillettes, and leather.

First rational post on this whole forum. I used to think that dressing didn't matter. But then my mom yelled at me for looking like a hobo. She was never able to explain to me why it was important to dress nicely, but after thinking about it, I came to the same conclusion.

What you are describing is not fashion per se. It's more along the lines of self-awareness than anything else.

I never really bothered about fashion. So long as I look average I'm all right. I've got a few nice shirts here and there but I don't wear them much. The only stuff I bought of my own volition was a grey hoodie and Alex Mercer jacket replica for the sake of being able to dress up like him.

I could not care less.
Fashion is alright, as long as you don't push it on others.

Unnecessary kind of pressure you push on yourself if you ask me, always trying to live up to someone else's idea of what looks "hot" or whatever, and be "in" with the most recent comings, tell you what, they'll also be going again and then you have a bunch of clothes and accessories you can throw out in a dumpster.

Ah yes fashion, a whole industry built on encouraging people to discard clothes that aren't even worn out. I say find out what's comfortable and what suits your body shape and stick to that. If you want to do a bit of pandering to fashion, change things like buttons to update clothes, use scarves or even the odd bit of jewellery if you wear that, to accent your ensemblé. I get away with wearing black leggings or yoga pants to work sometimes and so do other staff. I wear them because of comfort and there will be times I have to run around, bend, climb and sit on the floor at work. The cloth is soft and flexible for such things. I'd have never chosen them based on showing of my figure.

I don't like to follow fashion trends, I will though if I think it looks nice and want to look the way everyone else who is following the trend does. That seldom happens though, exceptions include Doc Martens and Creepers... well, that's about it. There's probably some more I don't remember. I dress to suit my mood and my personality. I'm not the most confident person so what I wear is my way of showing my personality

I like to be content and comfortable. Two key things for your fashion senses lol.

Basically:
Fitted t-shirt (summer)
Over-sized sweatshirt (winter)
Skinny jeans (almost all the time)
Colored shorts (very hot hot days)
Flip flops (lazy days)
Tennis shoes (all the time)
Diamond earrings (all the time)
Snapback that looks good but unfamiliar with the team (bad hair days)

Not sure if it's just me that think men who wear really skinny jeans look gay. Just my opinion cuz they look so uncomfortable.

Normal sized jeans or shorts
Basketball shoes or runner's shoes
Normal or fitted t-shirt (usually with humor)
No hats
Amethyst pendant
No watch
wristbands (usually with humor)

I got into fashion about a year ago when I realized I had like no clothes. Almost 6 years of military school and military college does that haha. So when I was in grad school I just had my suit for interviews and my jeans and t shirts for normal every day. I had my jacket for when it got really cold and otherwise hoodies were my go-to. After I got out of school I realized I knew nothing about how to dress without a uniform so I started learning.

What I've realized is that fashion is actually a ton of fun. It's a way to express myself as an individual and there is a lot out there for people to enjoy that is much more comfortable when you start paying attention to brands and quality. Not to mention it lasts a lot longer. Since I started paying more attention my clothes fit better, are more comfortable, last a lot longer, and I look a lot sharper in my own unique way. So its well worth the time to look into it.

Another added benefit is it sets you apart from the crowd. If you go to business meeting or an outside the office function the best way to get noticed without a) making a fool of yourself or b) standing out with a neon sign over you is by how you dress. Its subtle and catches your bosses attention in a great way. When everyone else is wearing the same kakhi's and white or blue button down shirt and you're in kick ass black jeans, a white button down oxford, polished leather boots and belt who is going to get attention?

I still walk around in hoodies and old jeans when I don't care but I also know how to dress for effect now and that has been a huge benefit over the last year.

My every day style:

Dark jeans, leather belt, leather boots, a t-shirt/button down/long sleeves (depending on weather I might add a sweater), nice watch and class ring, my pendant, and a leather jacket if its cold out.

My work:

Suit and Tie.
