I really have to start wearing colour. I wore a lilac cardigan one day a couple of weeks ago and the first thing two of my flatmates said as they saw me is "You're wearing colour! You should do that more often" Buying colour is so much more stressful than black/grey/dark blue, though.

eh..people use to say that to me all the time as well...
but eventually it got to the point that when i did wear colour they all said...

OMG!...you're wearing COLOUR?!...
*in shock*...

whatever...you can't please everyone...
now i just wear what i like and what feels good...
and no one says anything except that they like what i'm wearing...
...

i really have to do some alterations...
either get someone to pin stuff so i can do it myself...
or take them somewhere...
but it is ridiculous to have all these clothes hanging around that i cannot wear because they need altering of some kind...

Yes, that is extremely off-putting. I must admit I end up wearing things with holes.. Last vacations I spent all three months just sewing all the things I had stocked up and unwearable because of the holes or lack of buttoms, etc, and I COULDN'T FINISH!!!!
All the things that need to be sewned to get back to the closet pile up to half a meter, and the worst part is that I look the other way and raise the tolerance of destruction, so the ones that are aside for repair are COMPLETELY UNWEARABLE. But if I had zero tolerance I'm out of clothes!!!!

Does anyone else not have a 'summer' style? I love layering and the majority of my clothes are black/muted colors. So in the summer, I wear as little fabric as possible to keep from melting Forever living in denim cutoffs.

nice topic

I'm having a hard time coming up with my personal style

I love the 1920s and Victorian/steampunk and glam rock style, but i have no idea how to mesh those together. any suggestions would be awesome

^^just experiment...play dress up...have fun with it and eventually you will find what works for you...

i have to say that whenever i feel kind of tired or not in the mood to do something...
the more i dress up, the easier it is for me to get through the day...
my favourite clothes really do help me to feel better...
and this never ceases to amaze me...

:p

I had to..
But funny enough, it's not entirely false!!! I love war uniforms, and helmets and all that, but the connotation is terrible, and I always end up loosing them. Besides, I live in a country that has a tormented history with militars, I don't know if it's ready yet for me in a helmet..

I have a question for all the girls here.
Now I'm not a straight guy, but I've always wondered... do you girls like guys that are stylish and dress "fashionably" or do you find yourself more attracted to guys who are more relaxed and nonchalant when it comes to the clothes they wear?
(sorry if this has been asked before)

^Haha I had an ephifany like that once. I was wearing a yellow skirt and dark red flats... It hit me that I resembled this infamous chicken from a danish kids show.
I've never combined those colors since.
