Of course learning how to dress well didn't come instantly. We figure things out little by little until we know enough. For me it's: 1. Wearing tops that fit. I worked out and got a bit buff, and learned to wear flattering tops. I got stuck here for a while before moving on to the next one. 2. Basic color coordination. Meaning avoiding bad color combos. 3. Wearing pants that are not baggy. 4. Footwear. Recognizing what's horrible-looking. 5. Considering my body structure. Realizing that shorts are not too flattering for me. 6. Intermediate color coordination. Avoiding not-bad-but-not-so-nice-either color combos like navy-black and brown-black. Avoiding the office drone look. Discovering how versatile gray trousers are. Just bought some dark gray jeans, can't wait to try new outfits. So that's been my journey so far and it's been fun. It spans around 10 years. By the way, I developed 1-3 before I discovered SF. I don't really consider myself Styleforumized as I learned a lot from just surfing around the net. I have a friend who's just started to try proper-fitting tops, I'm still trying hard to convince him to move on to pants that are not baggy. So how did you evolve?
