First, get a girlfriend who can pick your clothes out for you

Just kidding.

I would say start with where you are, the sneakers, jeans, and hoody. But make each one best in class. And if you like color, have a color scheme in mind for the season before you begin, so everything will work together.

^ I figured, but I thought I'd put that out there just in case

I mean, make the jeans not just jeans you found on your bedroom floor, but a considered choice of the very best ones you can find--deliberately choose the cut, the color, the finish. I don't mean the most expensive, but the ones that best fit you and your taste. Maybe a cashmere hoodie. Maybe suede sneaks. Make each piece a little bit unique, and your pick for "best in class."

And if color doesn't seem evil to you (it does to many here I gather ), choose a piece with just a bit of a color you like.

You could always cut out pictures from magazines that grab your attention. When you look at most of the pictures, you will start to get an idea of what your style is. Then go to stores and look for similar items.

^ We have a whole thread that explains karma ... search on 'karma' with titles only selected, that should bring it up for you. Any questions you have, you can post there & we'll answer ...

I think it's important that you get comfortable with the basics, like knowing what works for your body type. Even if you're just wearing jeans and a plain white tee, if it fits well you'll end up looking like a million bucks.
From there, you can start changing things up and adding your personal touch to the outfits -- scarves, necklaces, arm candy, printed tops, crazy shoes.

Hi I dont know if this is the right place to post this question plz feel free to remove it if its not.

I have bunch of clothes that I am confuzed "where" to wear... I mean what occasion or what place to wear them.
do we have any forum thread that discusses this thing ? Like we can post the pictures of the clothes and ppl on tfs can discuss what event or what place would they wear them?

^ I just did a search & I don't believe we do have a thread like that. You could start one. Where could I wear this?
