The cowl neck is so big right now. I have a cardigan very similar to this in dark grey, but I bought it super large for the sake of silhouette contrast.

The posted picture had a shawl collar. A cowl neck looks like this.  (Shudder)

Also, am I the only person that thinks underwear that are see through on the butt are very unattractive?

Yes.

Also, I do not know if I am warming to stuff or if I've just been smokin' tweeds or what but Liz, those things are all pretty good.

These are really the only ones I can find with a noticeable flare to them. I don't really like the faded wash but the style and fit seem pretty good anyways. Then there are these which claim to be flared but I can't really see it at all. Sorry dudes, I guess it is just not meant to be.

What is up with the high back on those jeans?  When I was looking for jeans in Sydney I was having the same problem.  Every fucking pair looked like some kind of fucking farmer's jeans from the back.  So goddamned awful.

edit: I wound up getting a pair of Lee Riders "Heritage Edition" when I was in Japan because they looked about 250% better than anything I'd found in Australia.  Can't remember if they were straight or boot cut.  I think straight, but not sure.

If it's any consolation I also want them but can't have them. The first sweater is actually relatively cheap when compared to the rest of the stuff, $68 or something. Oh and the silver tank is only $32. The rest are pretty pricey, though. Sorry!

Man there is just something about bodices and tops with those seams under the boobs that start at the cleavage and angle down towards the waist as they approach the armpit. It makes your boobs look saggy and not as nice. Otherwise it is (in my opinion) cute, but otherwise unremarkable.

The lady's tits look saggy in the top-left pic Liz posted because the lady has saggy tits, not because of any kind of fashion faux pas. (she is a common model on that site)

Well, yes, but I figured that was obvious. There's nothing disguising it, though, on that shirt. The thing about the dress is that it is cute, but I think the seams thing is kind of a visual minimizer technique, too, so on girls with tiny boobs it makes them look a little droopy AND smaller.


I would still probably check out that chick if I passed her in that dress on the street. Maybe I would even whistle. (It is really funny to watch people get confused when a girl does that.)

More colours, but subtly. I'd take the aforementioned accessories and make them red, so maybe a red belt or... no, a red belt. Perhaps one of those irritating hats that might be called beanies, if you can pull it off sufficiently suavely to not look like a bad boy band singer. And you look too nervous! Confidence is sexy. (I like your hair.)

Maybe try some darker jeans, that are maybe a little bit less flare-y near the bottom? Also; sweaters! Like has been mentioned lots of times in this thread.. Something as simple as a nice black or grey v-neck sweater can look really good, if you don't want a lot of colors. This guy in my class whose style I totally admire almost only wears black, grey, white and sometimes brown (plus dark jeans, so I guess dark blue as well), but he does it so well and looks all kinds of awesome.

Skinny jeans will not change your life, and are totally over as a trend any way. I would consider something slightly more slim fit though, you aren't fat, so don't wear baggy clothes. If you have a body that is at all nice, flaunt it.

I like the jacket, the T-shirt isn't bad but you could be layering better, and the jacket is nice but you should probably get it a little smaller. The loose fitting jacket isn't doing anything for your profile, especially with the loose jeans and shirt. Shoes are nice, but get a better haircut.

This makes no sense. People still wear skinny jeans constantly and they are more popular than ever, that's why they aren't cool. You waited so long you missed the chance to do it while it was interesting and are just wearing tight pants.

Yeah skinny jeans are definitely not my type.

What? You haven't even tried them! I'm not talking about the super skinny jeans, but the more fitted-without-being-clingy ones. I know it would suit you. Don't be ashamed of your body, there is absolutely nothing wrong with it. If you feel insecure about being too skinny, remember that big unfitted clothes will make you look skinnier than you are.

So you're saying skinny jeans are uncool because they are popular? That is just as bad as wearing something because everybody else does it. Why can't people just wear what suits them without having to be so trend fixated?

if it makes you feel any better, i have no idea what's cool or not and i like to think i dress pretty well for who/what i am.

for example: i can't even wear baggy jeans, since there's usually more air than fabric touching my skin, i always have to look down and make sure i'm still wearing pants because i feel almost naked. so i usually go for something that's a little more snug so i can always be sure that i have pants on without having to check.

god that sounds alot less stupid in my head.
