Where is your style going? - Page 48

yall scared of dope colors
post #707 of 761
I said this before, but because of my face and hair, colors make me look really, really campy. The new KKA pieces in turquoise and dark pink are so pretty, too. frown.gif

Minimalism and quality over quantity and design. Solid colors and the perfect fit.

thought it might be a laugh for everyone, so I'm posting the history of my waywts since i started caring about fashion and taking pics two years ago. really embarrassing to see what I thought looked good a while back and I didn't want to post some but what the heck. a lot of these were posted on another forum before i found out about SF.
I spoilered the pics so they don't take up a whole page (Click to show)
think this is from late 2010. horribly tight and too short jeans, cheap pleather shoes, robot pose.

january 2011. everything still too tight, colors funky together.

april '11. laughing at my creased pant roll smile.gif

2011.

april 2012. nearly a year between this and the last pic. an improvement i think, still trying for a clean-ish look.

april

may

early june.

early june, trying more out there stuff as I get bored with simple basics.

mid august, after spending the summer looking at a lot of fashion, getting really into YY, damir doma, and ann d. decided to stick with a neutral palette and play with different silhouettes instead of just skinny all the time.

yesterday's fit, got my YYPH on icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif


I'm pretty happy with where I'm headed. dressing in the minimal color of the last two fits (and what I've got planned in the future) has been really great. I'm feeling much more comfortable in my clothes than I ever have, think this is the direction for me happy.gif

´personally i think your earlier fits looked okay too
and i'm sure regular people think that they were way better than the yohji fit
(i know their opinion doesn't count, but blinding them out is difficult too)

they are hakamas, but it looks like a skirt if i'm standing still.

its not so much that all the earlier ones were bad, but i was dressing to please a set of rules, like "wear dark slim denim, slim buttondowns in white and blue, get some brown dress shoes for your jeans + slacks"

not that there's anything wrong with that, but i didnt feel like my clothes were my own and I was constantly checking to make sure everything was "just right" (is my break on my pants okay, hope my shirt stays tucked in, make sure my shoelaces are laying even). Now i'm much happier walking around, let my pants and jeans just stack, and be more casual biggrin.gif

Throughout 2011 my style became a lot more casual and a bit edgier, but I was still sort of firmly entrenched in the onii-kei (Japanese "big brother") glam style. Then in July, this happened:

thumb540x540

This was my first foray into a darker style, and it was really well received. After I started to dress like this, I began to feel very uncomfortable in my previous clothes. It was only then that I noticed just how much I had identified with my style then, and how difficult it would be to shed it. But I continued.

For a brief period I became very infatuated with black, drapey aesthetic popularized by brands like Julius, Rick Owens, and Damir Doma and played on by lower-mid-end Japanese brands like 5351 and Buffalo Bobs. This was my first real lesson that I am not immune to the waxing and waning of fashion trends. In the end, while I discovered elements of those styles that work for me, I was not that interested in becoming so dramatic.

It was around this time I discovered Kiryuyrik, which has proven instrumental to my style transformation.

2012 - Current

thumb540x540thumb540x540thumb540x540thumb540x540

My style has become a lot more masculine. I couldn't classify myself as onii-kei anymore, despite many others would still prefer to label me that way. I still have certain onii-kei elements, such as the jewelry, hair, and make-up, but everything has become less extreme. I've abandoned colour pretty much entirely.

Kiryuyrik is the brand I am most interested in now, with Shellac and Attachment also being favourites. I don't wear button-front shirts anymore and I don't wear any animal or floral patterns. I would have never believed this direction if I'd seen a glimpse into the future back in 2010, but I feel more comfortable in my clothes than ever, picking and choosing what I like and not feeling confined to a specific idea.

those last four fits are great brad, and especially the plokhov stuff. hope you keep looking at that brand, good look for you imo biggrin.gif
post #716 of 761
Plokhov is nice. I do like this outfit, but while I liked most of the pieces I saw at the sale, very little of it resonated with me on a personal level. I also have no idea what Plokhov actually costs. But I will continue to follow it.

those pictures are like a story of how patterns and ornamentation are steadily being annihilated

brad, I think you could add color without looking tacky. Meaning small spots of solid color, like one red glove for example.
Or larger pieces of really deep colors (think deep purple).


The toj is fantastic btw.
