Hi, I'm new to the forum and ive been wanting to change up my style for quite a while and step up my game. Its hard for me to find clothing that fits nicely because i'm short (5'6) and overweight.
For a while now i have been wearing Graphics tees, Levi 510s, cheap cardigans, and converse. The Levi 510s seem to sit too low on me and they make me look even shorter. (It also make me look like i'm sagging) Even when i get them hemmed
I need help finding jeans that will look better on me. I prefer a less baggier style of jeans. I understand that all jeans i buy have to be shortened from the 30 to 28.
For shirts, I want to start wearing button-up shirts. From what ive seen in patterns i like checks and other not overly complicated patterns. I'll also wear pretty much any color but i like darker colors for obvious reasons. I also prefer to tuck in my button up shirts but from what I gather it makes you look shorter.
I would also like a pair of brown shoes. I was thinking Brown Leather sneakers. Something that's not formal and more sporty but still looks nice. But shoes are hard to find for me because i have a wide foot.
I have no idea what to wear for outer wear. right now i either wear a cardigan or a sweatshirt because of the ease of it
Any help or suggestions would be great. If anyone disagrees with any of my opinions and options please let me know and give me your advice.
