I am on StyleForum a lot but... - Page 2

Hilarious, I have OP blocked. Don't remember why. Maybe this is why...

Wearing what fits well is probably most important. Aside from that, wear what you like, regardless of whether other people will find it interesting or not. Now, if you are holding back because you don't want to dress too different from others, you have to ask yourself why. Is it because you are afraid others won't approve? Is it because you don't like to get a lot of looks/attention? Is it because your personal tastes just happen to be "boring" and dressing otherwise would be forcing yourself into a look you don't really care for?

Since I've been reading up on style, I've not changed my clothes significantly, but the little changes have made a big difference.

Style is trickier than not and easy to go overboard on when starting out. I usually tell my friends to start off by buying complete outfits that they think are stylish - even if it is the exact same outfit off of a mannequin. It is an easy way to bootstrap yourself up to a reasonable wardrobe without putting a lot of thought into it.

If you have a desired look/genre - commit to it. Don't waffle between being preppy one day, avant-garde the next, etc. Get the right haircut and all the other stuff. You can mix and match later when you have more ability/confidence. It is okay to tone down a bit from a look (maybe omitting the bowtie or the high buttoned coat or whatever), but don't tone it down a lot or you lose what makes it distinctive.

If you are more cash strapped and can't buy whole wardrobes, try and wear one more adventurous thing every day - whether a coat that is more edgy than normal, or a bright color that you think might be a bit loud - you can edge your way over to it. Go ahead and make mistakes.

My style is pretty tamed compare to some that post their outfits here. Regardless, in the time duration that I have joined the forum, I spent at least $5,000 on clothes/shoes already. A lot of it are from online buying at work. Damn you guys for posting up links to sales and such!

i used to layer and accessorize and color coordinate and shit, now I grab the first pair of pants, random sportcoat and unironed shirt shirt that doesnt smell that I see and step into whatever shoes have the trees out before i walk out this is probably better.

I think the reason is the op.

Let's face it the swagger is far and few in between.

I think some people just have problems putting together trickier outfits, or they simply don't the right pieces to take things to the next level. Often times I find myself in the same situation, mainly because a lab isn't the best place to wear good clothes (jeans and t-shirt most times for me).
I think the main factor is just the comfort level you have with wearing things that will get you looks in public-some of them not the ones you may be looking for. That's why most posters here still resort to Jcrew approved looks, it's safe to dress that way, and most people on the street will see that as well dressed.

aim to look good, not stylish

someone who is fit and wearing well-fitted basics will always look better than a fatty/bonerack in an "inspired" outfit

wtf does that mean ^^

someone with an appreciable amount of muscle mass wearing well-fitting basics will look better than a fatass in the "perfect" outfit, so dont worry about being divinely fucking inspired every time you walk out the door.

sure, fatty might be stylin, but he's still a fat fucker. aim to look good. didnt ro say something like "working out is modern couture"
