Hm.

I didn't get to choose my outfits as a small child, of course. Mum forced me to wear horrible child formal wear constantly. I hated it so much, which is pretty amusing because formal style clothing is what I most often choose to wear now.

Elementary school I only ever wore velvet and denim. Sometimes entire outfits of one or another. I don't suggest doing that. It was probably a sensory driven choice. Velvet is extremely soft, and denim is an engrossing texture. But neither are in fashion.

Middle school was my leather jacket phase. Yes, I love Grease. And they were plain jackets. I hadn't discovered patches or spikes yet. Occasionally I wear leather jackets now, but they're usually classy things with zippers in the appropriate places. I've been thinking about making myself a punk style jacket for funsies to wear on days off work. I collected tons of patches and spikes in teen years that I still haven't gotten to use on a garment!

Back in high school, my friends told me that my fashion sense was described with the quote, "Match? Like...like...fire?" I tended to wear gaudy silk dress shirts with ruffles, cravats, and bright colors. I wore a lot of different vests, and most of my pants tended to be pinstripe or plaid. Coordinated well, these pieces could have looked really nice. But I tended to wear clashing colors, and plaid with conflicting patterns of stripes or argyle. I also had a huge thing for hats then, that hasn't quite gone away yet. Top hats, newsboy hats, sun hats, golf hats. I even had this utterly terrible white cowboy hat with rhinestones studding its entire band. It was horrible, and I adored it and wore it frequently, to my shame now.

It wasn't until my college years that I actually became adept at coordinating outfits. I only picked up the skills for coordinating fashion after years of playing Gaia Online, a roleplaying site that had humanoid avatars you could dress up. I got really into the gothic lolita/aristocrat scene and even purchased some outfits in Tokyo during a visit. I also got into the Steampunk genre, which is also inspired by the same period of time: the victorian fashion era. So victorian fashion influenced me a lot.

Now I tend to wear more sophisticated, mature combinations. I'm still going with the various ruffled clothing items, vests, cascading tail coats, fancy loose sleeves, or sharp suit blazers. But I have a much better sense of which patterns and colors to combine, and I tend to stick to demure colors, like shades of black, grey, white, dark red, and dark purple. Unless I'm going to a club, because then you can wear horrible, bright, eyecatching color combinations and have a lot of fun doing so!

wow your sense of fashion in your youth sounds very unique, i wish i had that sort of thing growing up
And hey i used to go on gaiaonline forums too even while i was on CR - use to be one of those people who'd make tektek avatars for people and get paid

My fashion growing up was horrible:
When i was really young, my parents use to put me in 'alice in wonderland' ish dresses
In school, we had uniform in both primary school (elementary) and in high school so i didnt really have many clothes for leisure time or anything. I also joined all the sports teams during high school so i owned a lot of sporty clothing like running shoes and tracksuits.

It was probably when i got to college when i started buying a lot of clothing but i couldn't match stuff to save my life xD
Now that i'm in university, i think i'm quite aware with current seasons and what not, but i dont like updating my wardrobe. I wear different type of stuff everyday, sometimes sporty, sometimes overly casual - but putting my outfits together like an idiot.
I also love layering with coats and jackets - even in summer, sunshine isn't gonna stop me

No, it tastes terrible.

Mine; jean pants, jeans pants, jean pants, (hot/cold/rain/shine) and T-shirts...white, maybe discolored cause I don't sort my laundry, or random T-shirts with a print on it. Never anything fancy. Work, just a colored T-shirt to hide with the masses.

Hahaha I wish some of you guys had pictures. These bad outfits from the past sound pretty incredible.

When I was a kid, pretty much anything went. Before the age of 11, I had no concept of good fashion. My mom used to buy me a lot of clothing from chinatown marketplaces, so I would wear sweaters with things like pokemon or power rangers on it. Except everything was horrendously discolored to avoid copyright. Ever seen a red and green pikachu? I had a handful of super cute country girl type dresses for special occasions, but I also owned things like this monstrosity of a skirt that was orange, made of some kind of fake velvet, and had suspender straps. I would wear it with my power ranger sweaters lol


I'm pretty good at coordinating outfits now, and I think I look good. But I know I'm not fashionable lol. Nothing I wear is trendy at all, and sometimes it looks like I'm cosplaying, even though I'm trying to make the most casual outfit possible while maintaining a sense of identity. I've just been picking out stuff I like, but I think I've been accidentally following fujoshi attire

This sums it up pretty well.

For me, fashion is about artistically designing yourself everyday, to feel more confident about yourself. Some people love to pick out clothes and come up with different styles for their body type-and then there's me, who doesn't really have much style sense at all. Which is fine, but I'd like to get the hang of it one day

A unique statement made through garments.

I don't consider anything we wear in society to be fashionable nothing I wear reflects my style of fashion.

I prefer clothes with tons of not hundreds to thousands of intricate details.
I also love belt buckles and belts on clothing (not around the waist) as they can be used to tighten and maintain clothing side.
I like long and baggy clothing with lots of flexibility.

I like clothing that's not practical and is flashy or consists of fabric going down like a cloak or other types of clothing used in ancient periods.

Simply put...I'm weird i love clothing from the past and cultures far and wide that one would generally not dare wear today.
Anime attracts me in this sense and video games the clothing design is "over the top" which hurts people's eyes but is EXACTLY what I want and look for in the ideal pursuit of fashion.

I plan to have my own clothing tailored in the future I don't care what people think of me or the looks I get clothing should make you stand out and it should look good to you and make you feel comfortable if others don't like it well fuck them

lol I was thinking the same thing.

As for me, it's pretty much just solid-color T-shirts and jeans. That's it.

I've thought about trying to dress up a little more (I've played around with the idea of getting a sweet bowler hat, just for the lols), but I just feel like I don't have enough of a reason to.
