i dont really believe in the clothing as optical illusion (like horizontal lines vs vertical lines) or in the color wheel theory of matching colors or the idea that certain colors go better with certain skin tones (like who makes up these, it seems rather arbitrary to me), but based on what now 6 years on this forum experience tells me that some silhouettes are more flattering
you insist on stacks and shorter tops, but it seems to me (and pretty much everybody who responds to your fits) that something is not working. maybe try changing a little and see what happens?
you dont have to get rid of the greaser look. but you can pull it off better or you can keep doing the same thing and hope people stop ragging on you
