Peter Pan collar makes stuff look much worse, no kidding If you have time, fix the collar into a pointy one or cut the collar out and wear the dress with a velvet choker and a fair of flat with ankle straps. Ankle straps make flat less blah and more "serious"

But Peter pan collar will just get in your way Oh how i hate it, stock your wardrobe with a huge heap of "rock chic", "tomboy", "tough" stuff won't chase the peter pan collar away, srsly, only makes the situation worse

diesanni what about a leather jacket? a short, black form fitting one will work.

Or maybe just a jacket, hopefully on black to make it look more severe.

pixie WAY better! Now all you need is the shoes and you are ready!

Practically anything. A red/black/navy and white stripet l/s tee would look great. If it is for a casual look I would use sneakers like converse all starst and if it is more dressy I would wear flats or some kind of heels and maybe a nice scarf. A shirt (not white) would be cool too.


What would you wear with beige suede pants
?

I don't wear flats or heels, I'm a boy
Thanks for the advice, I was thinking about a striped -t-shirt too but I wasn't really sure. I need a darker stripe. I have two white and light blue but not too light striped t-shirts

I have camel/beige pants and I ususally wear white with it or blue, but not too dark or too light.

This sounds like it would look totally awesome but it's just not me. I'm too chicken for that.

Maybe some heavy jewelery? Something with big chains or maybe even (subtle) spikes may work. Since it's black you could try black patant leather shoes to give it some edge.

And i like the hair suggestions Petit Lucille gave.

Hi, I've got a nice fisherman jumper but unfortunately it's in a yellowy cream colour (and I can't dye it as it's 100% acrylic) I can't think of how to wear something that's creamy yellow

What do you guys think of the colour? I might be overreacting :p
