What is your style when it comes to clothing (skater, scene etc)? Why do you dress the way you do (comfort, looks)? If you had to wear one piece of clothing from a different style, what would it be?
November 28th, 2010, 05:30 PM
My style is kind of skater but mostly my own kind, I wear clothes for both looks and confort, because you have to look good and feel great too.
November 28th, 2010, 05:30 PM
I guess my style would be kinda like.. an edgy classic? :C I love QUALITY stuff.. stuff that's sewn really well- lots of seams and construction.. but with a bit of a twist. For me both comfort and looks really matter- you should be comfortable in what you wear.. but also presentable.
I dunno what other style I'd choose, really.. :C Maybe.. something from men's fashion like a fedora would be kinda cool to wear. Or like a tie.. heck maybe even try to do something to pull off a bowtie might be pretty interesting for a girl.
I love this sorta thing but I don't have enough clothing to consistently put together looks like that ALL the time.. I wear fancy-er stuff once in a while though.

My dress sense would fall into the alternative/indie (more commonly categorised with "scene") style.
I own 57 T-Shirts (at last count) because they are comfortable and I like how they look.
I also own 10 different pairs of jeans, styles restricted to skinny & straight leg, but they are of varying colours.
Shoes. Oh boy, do I have some shoes. I have a few pairs of dress shoes, for fancy occasions and stuff, all Italian leather, the way I like. Other than that I have a variety of skate shoes and the chucks as well, both high and low cut ones. My favourites being the Neons. (Pink outside, yellow inside, blue tongue, green laces. heck yes!)
I think I may have too many clothes for a straight guy really.

My style is kind of a cross between 80's new wave and "nerdy" clothing. For looks and comfort, I guess, because I find pretty much anything comfortable except jeans or tank tops, I've never liked wearing those. (Although I find things comfortable that most people don't. Like, I wear ties all the time and most people think they're really uncomfortable. And skirts, I really don't see how people think they're uncomfortable. At least they don't cling to your legs annoyingly like pants do.) And I do like how both of those styles look, but I like them both so I kind of mix them together in a way that most people probably think looks terrible. :P
Were I to wear something from a different style, I'd probably just wear something outdated, but otherwise relatively normal. I just don't like things that are too stylish.
November 28th, 2010, 06:57 PM
My style is simple--shorts/pants and a T-shirt, but I mostly wear shorts because of comfort.
November 28th, 2010, 07:49 PM
Shorts and T-shorts. Shorts are comfy and easy to wear. *gets shot*
But really, it is. When you see me in real life, you'll probably see me in a white T-Shirt and some shorts. When going out or something, though, I wear something fancy like ...long sleeves or something. xD And yes, I know the fact that I used "something" 3 times.
November 29th, 2010, 08:00 PM
I've got this "indie" looking style going on, and i honestly love the look, even though we get assumed as hipsters, lawl.
If i had to pick a piece of clothing from a different "click" i'd probably go with... scene? or not.
November 29th, 2010, 08:11 PM
I love fashion, so dressing up daily is a must for me :) not anything too fancy, but I do like to look nice. I'm a big fan of layers and my favorite outfits include: a skirt, tights, boots, a shirt, a sweater, and a scarf + jewelery (earrings, rings, and a bracelt). If I'm not wearing a scarf, then a long necklace :D
if it's too cold for a skirt, pretty much the same thing but with jeans.
November 30th, 2010, 05:47 AM
Really, I don't care about what I wear much as long as it is comfy and my friends complain that I should be more into how I look because I'm a female (Yeah, they care too much about their appearance), but to be honest I really, really, really, don't care. For me, I really know what it's name would be. The lazy style? ...I don't know. I just find a shirt, some comfy jeans and a hooded jacket with some converse or trainers and get going. Yeah, my 'wardrobe' isn't exciting. It's barley there. Eh, if I had to change something just for the fun of it I'd try wearing some trackies (sporty!) or something like that for the difference.
Yeah, I hate clothes shopping.
November 30th, 2010, 06:35 AM
I would love to get into wearing cool clothes but to be honest I don't want to waste my money on clothes when I could be buying music gear, so unless I suddenly come across a tonne of money, chances are I won't be fashionable any time soon. But I'd love to be, there's so many cool looks you can do and if I could I'd love to try some of them out.
As for what I wear now, I'm usually in jeans (or sometimes black cargo pants), a band t-shirt and a jacket (sort of like a track jacket but bigger and with a hood), which depending on the temperature is usually worn open. In summer I'll usually just wear a pair of shorts and a white t-shirt though.
November 30th, 2010, 07:28 AM
I usually wear regular stuff. Random jeans, random t-shirts, random pullovers, random everything. Nothing interesting, really. I've been wanting to include some band shirts into my wardrobe for quite a while now, but still didn't got around to do it.
November 30th, 2010, 08:40 AM
pretty much kura's answer. i like to dress casually and comfortably, adding on a touch of urban classic- but nothing over the top. i'd like to have more quality clothes, but i dont get to shop much and when i do i'm on a limited budget. i manage to stay cheap and look nice :o3
November 30th, 2010, 09:29 AM
I have my jeans, my t-shirts, my hoodies and my collared shirts + suit for anything fancy. I have never worn that suit in my life, it probably doesn't even fit me any more. I'd like to wear some of my decent shirts more, but I'd stick out like a sore thumb (everyone at my college wears leather) so I won't.
Funnily enough, most of the clothes bought for me by my nan/aunts & uncles when I was about 10-14 didn't fit me then, and most of it doesn't even fit me now. So I'm pretty much set for the next year or two, by wearing stuff that's 4+ years old. Just a load of rugby tops and hipster shirts, but I have no intention of either playing rugby or becoming a hipster.
Males have it easy.
November 30th, 2010, 11:44 AM
I mostly wear dress shirts with the cuffs undone and jeans. But really, if they're clean and they fit I'll wear them.
November 30th, 2010, 03:08 PM
Okay I searched the internet forever trying to find something similar to what I wear and this is the best I could find. D:
For shoes I'm likely to wear either boots or sneakers. I don't really have a certain sneaker brand I buy. I just go with whatever looks nice. At the moment I only have one pair of gray Converses. As for boots I have many pairs and I tend to wear them more so then the sneakers. I always wear either jeans, jeggings, or leggings. I tend to incorporate scarves into my outfits or when it's really cold I love to wear those hats that have ear flaps. :D I have a jacket just like the one in that picture except it's black that I'll wear. Most of the time I tend to just wear a nice shirt with a cardigan or sweater over it. Although I feel like when I say sweater people get the impression of a knitted Christmas or bulky ugly sweater which isn't what I mean at all.
Anyways I dress the way I do because I think it's both comfortable and stylish. As Kura said in her post, I can't always dress like this. Some days I'll put on a sweatshirt and sweatpants and call it a day. I like nice clothing and I do try to look nice, but if I'm really tired, sick, or freezing I'm not going to bother.
Here's a picture of the hat with ear flaps in case you're wondering.

For pants I usually stick with jeans. Most of them are slim fitting and some of them are a little big, but I never wear skinny jeans. I don't think they'd look good on me. I have a few different belts I switch between and whenever I get a new one, one tends to fall out of the rotation. They're the sort of belts you'd find at hot topic, they aren't anything overly 'edgy' but they aren't the plain suit and tie belts either. I don't really have a set shirt style, sometimes it'll resemble abercrombie and other times it'll just be a plain white beater. Thermals stand out as something I wear a lot that other people don't tend to as much, and I like flannel as well. I try to wear a hoodie as much as possible, and depending on what else I'm wearing it could be a plain gray zip up or something with a skater logo on it.
If I had to choose one thing to try and stick with I'd probably go with thermals and flannels on top of a nice pair of slim fitting jeans.

Collared shirts and Khaki and other non-denim pants lend a somewhat professional but laid back look for me.
Of course I own some T-shirts too, and that makes me look even more casual when I wear those. XD
Pair that with a bit of nail polish and you've got my style down. It's modern I guess. I really don't know or care enough about fashion to really know them well.

Clothes. That' my fashion. I wear whatever I can fit into, including things that are 10+ years old.
Although I almost wear my handy fedora in public. It's almost like a symbol - easily recognizable, y'know?

I dress in Headfirst For Halos-nese.
What does that mean?
Mucho black with splashes of color here and there. All my pants are skinny jeans or something comftorable/dressy-ish. I'm short and I think the whole "my pants get ruined because I can step on the hems" works for me, even though some of my family members disapprove of this style quirk of mine's. I prefer fitted shirts over baggy. Some other stuff, but I'm not willing to type it all here for the sake of people's attention spans.
That being said, I dress something similar to this most of the time:

I usually wear jeans and a long sleeve shirt. Without meaning to, I dress a lot like Sheldon from The Big Bang Theory :3
I really only own about 2 pairs of trousers that aren't jeans and though I own a lot of T-shirts, I really don't like wearing them compared to a long sleeved one.
Replace those trousers with jeans and that'd be me. Laptop 'n all.
December 1st, 2010, 01:20 PM
I will wear almost anything, and somehow make it look fashionable. I love looking great and I think I have a unique sense of fashion about me. I love men and women's fashions both. They're just great to look at, haha. But my "style" is Indie, if I had to name it. Nick would agree with me on this. ;)
I'm aware I'm not fashionable in my sig, I didn't feel like dressing up that day shuddup.
December 1st, 2010, 01:22 PM
I just get into anything I feel comfortable in. And I just get into my jeans in five minutes whenever I have to go out. XD; Well, most of the time anyways. A combination of Black Jeans and a hoody has been my main attire this week. But yeah, I wear whatever happens to come across my sight when I chuck things out of my closet.

Something tells me that I would like the way Sydian dresses if I see him irl.
I'm currently hunting for a military jacket like this, except in olive green:
Also, grey/grey-ish boots like these:
December 1st, 2010, 04:46 PM
I like my things to usually be expensive. So as long as they are, fancy(not overly so, but I have standards), and to my liking, then I'll wear it.
.___. I know this might make me look terrible, but I'm really picky when it comes to fashion. xDD;
December 1st, 2010, 05:30 PM
I can't exactly put myself in any category but I usually go with the flow as a skater kind of style, however I can easily get tired of it at times, since I happen to live in a skater area, that's when the plain old shirts and jeans come in, I still like my skater clothing, shoes, etc though. I'd really like to make my own sort of style for myself, however since I'm always low on money that won't be anytime soon.
December 1st, 2010, 07:23 PM
Hmmm...I don't know how to describe my style...it's celeb-style? lol I really like fashionable trends and brands (only with certain things). I love skinny jeans, sweater dresses, boots, dresses, scarves, etc. I spend a lot of money on clothes and really enjoy it. It really depends on what it is. I buy $5 t-shirts and buy expensive designer jeans, so it really depends. You can buy cheap stuff and look good. I value looking good and taking care of your self. I present myself the way that I feel, which is great all the time.
When it comes down to it, I love clothes and I love fashion.

Yeah, usually just shorts or slacks along with a T-shirt or collared shirt (Jeans irritate my skin). Many of my T-shirts are free giveaways at events at my school and I usually get the rest as gifts for Christmas and such. Honestly, I care more about how comfortable my outfits are rather than how stylish they are.
Unless I'm cosplaying.
December 4th, 2010, 12:24 AM
Bahahaha, I stopped caring about how I look years ago. I'm not out to impress :P
I can usually be found wearing some stupid band tee under a hoodie and jeans.
December 4th, 2010, 03:43 AM
A mix of emo and scene, with a hint of skater.
Tops: Metalcore/Screamo band tees, striped tees, graphic tees, plaid shirts
Jeans: Skinny jeans (suuuuuper tight skinnies I might add; girl skinnies)
Belts: Studded, plaid
Hair: Traditional emo fringe
Accessories: Beanie, gloves, bracelets
Colours: Black, purple, dark blue

I have a secret affinity for fashion; in that I really like creating unique looks for myself... I mean, I dunno. My style is definitely unique compared to most teenaged girls. I really like to incorporate a lot of men's wear into modern female attire. I love me my fedoras, vests, ties, and blazers, but then I love me my skinny jeans, necklaces, and boots. And scarves. I wear a lot of scarves. On the other hand, I don't like wearing skirts/dresses, short shorts, anything frilly, etc. So yeah, I think I dress like a gay guy. Hmm.
In general, I'm keen on accessories and layering.
December 12th, 2010, 08:29 PM
I love fashion and I always will. <3; I like the goth/emo/punk image. It rocks.
December 16th, 2010, 10:22 PM
I don't follow any trends. I just throw on clothes that I like and are relatively cheap.
December 19th, 2010, 07:34 PM
Gosh! I love fashion so danm much.
Buying clothes, bags, shoes,and etc will make me go in debt one day! :(
but hey i'll look good in debt! :P
I'd say my style is Over the top girly and glammy? x
I love pink, ruffles, flowers, animal print, skirts, sequin, and big faux fur coat..
oh god maybe my style is Drag queenish! :P
I get most of my ideals from old holly wood glam movies <3

Don't know, don't care. I just wear whatever the heck is in my closet at the moment that I think would look good on me for the day. I spend very little on clothes because I really do not give a crap about what's "in" at the moment. I go with myself, not the crowd!
December 20th, 2010, 12:58 AM
I dress in a suit, tie, pants, hat and borderline trenchcoat, since that's what I like. It's fun looking different from literally everyone. Oh and I hate pretty much all "popular" clothing, since it's just so boring.
December 20th, 2010, 01:35 AM
When it comes down to pants, I only got jeans and some shorts in my closet. I almost always wear jeans and a t-shirt except when it's extremely warm outside, in which case you'll see me wearing shorts. I don't like to wear long sleeved shirts and sweaters, but with the climate here in the Netherlands you don't have much choice. I do wear t-shirts over long sleeved sweaters, but I make sure the long sleeved one's either gray or black.
I don't like to wear the exact same thing as everybody else does, but I guess I did end up with the same coat which most guys also seem to have:
A Nickelson. This one to be precise:https://www.herenmodecompany.nl/user_files/webshop/products/images/product_1280821104.jpg It's still lovely coat, it looks good and it's nice and warm. And that cute Hindu girl working at the store gave me a 20% discount
I wear Armani glasses, they aren't super expensive and look great:
I also wear a Diesel Watch and a 55cm golden necklace.
December 28th, 2010, 10:01 AM
Normally I like simple style, with regular comfortable T-Shirt and shorts.
But I MAY plan to change my fashion to Metalhead style soon when I grow older, since I'm a Metalhead.
