From fancy night out to everyday wear, let's discuss fashion!

Anyone looking for fashion advice or who'd like to share their day-to-day fashion can come here!

On a regular day in the summer (no work) I wear Victoria's Secret Pink leggings (in black, grey, or maroon) and a tank top. Booooring. I'm trying to find more dresses to wear and cute tops with jeans. I want to look nice!!

Where do you guys shop and what do you guys wear?

I am the least fashion-y person ever, but I do love this thread existing so I can ask: where do people buy jeans at? Do more expensive ones actually last longer or is the price markup mostly for brand name value?

Hi Dizzy! I personally buy my jeans (this is gonna be embarassing) at Hollister. I buy them when they have $25 jean sales and they last me a pretty long time! I used to buy Bullhead at Pac Sun when they had similar sales but the quality has gone downhill. Although Hollister is kinda a teeny bopper store I really like their jean quality!

I'm interested in what other people say though!

Surprisingly, +1 for Hollister jeans here. They're the only jeans I've bought the last 3-4 years and I love them. They do a bunch of different styles and I just think they fit great and last decently well, although I do think the 'super stretchy' jegging ones don't last as well as their proper denim jeans.
I also generally like to dig through the sale pile at the back of the store for cute tops and dresses :) Literally like 80% of my wardrobe is Hollister even though I'm definitely older than their target market :shrug:

I'm a cheap but lucky bastard that buys her jeans on Stradivarius / Bershka / Any other Inditex shop for 19,95.-€ and they all have lasted for years. Most of my wardrobe is Zara, though.

I'm gonna assume we are only talking about summer clothes: I live near the sea so I don't wear jeans or leggings except for when I have to go to uni or to some sort of intership. For everyday is shorts, skirts or dresses. I like my clothes to be simple but with some little details that makes them "unique" not plain but not something I would have a hard time trying to match.
I buy in sales from zara but for everything else I go around to little shops here or stradivarius or to the market, not from the internet ,as I have to try on before .
For jeans also zara/stradivarius/, nothing high brand, they usually last me 3/4 years, for me it's okay as usually that's the time in which I get bored with them and if it's not some winter thing I refuse to spend more than 25 bucks.
English is not my first language: half of the mistakes are typos ,half are me

Huh, wow - I don't think I've ever even been in Hollister, I think I just assumed they'd be way too expensive. $25 sounds good though - I'm gonna have to watch for those, thanks!

I don't really watch fashion youtubers/go on blogs but I'm in love with making things and obscuring trends. I'm always excited for what's next. I made a shirt at this fashion class that was actually decent, so I'm pretty proud for that.
I actually love the overall trend, where do people get cute above the knee overalls? Thanks. :love2:

Loving this thread.

Personally, I have a very hard time buying jeans as I have incredibly long legs, but I am very slim. This means that most jeans are either long enough but huge, or small enough but far too short :roll:

I've had the best luck with jeans from American Eagle and H & M. H & M is especially great as it doesn't break the bank.

I haven't worn proper jeans in like, 6 years; jeggings are where it's at! Jeans are just so awful, and thick, and always cut me up the crotch and I just can't stand them. I only ever buy longer leg jeggings from Next in the UK, because I find the sizing is true and I can pick up any in my size with longer leg and they'll be perfect. I wouldn't waste money on proper denim again tbh, so uncomfortable.

Most of the time I only ever used to buy jeans as there's very little else out there for women that is a casual, versatile trouser which comes in various fits. Besides a black work trouser (black trousers will always scream work to me and not clothes I want to wear by choice lol) then there's just nothing. I don't wear dresses or skirts either but I feel quite content with my 4ish pairs of jeggings; I usually have a very dark wash, a black, a khaki and then a lighter blue denim. Then I usually refresh my jeggings every other summer or so, keeping hold of just one of the really battered pairs to wear on flights or in hotels in the evening or whatever.

When I'm home, I literally wear pjs and that's it haha.

Yeah, I wear leggings 6 days out of the week, basically. I work two jobs but the more professional one doesn't allow leggings. (Actually, they have no dress code, but in order to look professional I wear jeans and a nice top rather than leggings). So over the summer I was doing that job full time so I bought a bunch of jeans. Then I went to my childhood house and found even more jeans. Now I have way too many jeans, and all I wear is leggings! Oops. Maybe in the winter I will wear the jeans more because they're warmer!

I don't really like wearing dresses or shorts. 99% could be due to the fact that I got a tattoo on my thigh and hid it from my dad. So I had to wear long pants at all times when I was around him, which was a lot. So I kinda got really used to the long pants, and even tho I lived away from him after that, I still felt most comfortable with long pants. Now I only wear shorts or a dress to go out to the club or a nice dinner with someone, because I feel oddly exposed if I wear them on a normal day. Weird!!

I like to get dressed in the morning so I don't normally hang around the apartment in pajamas, but I do always wear leggings, so my clothes are still pretty comfortable haha.

I need to buy new sweaters: anyone have a recommendation of where has good sweaters that won't break the bank? i was thinking forever 21 and h&m basically....

I usually shop at h&m, forever21, zara and dynamite for clothing. I shop for makeup at nyx and sometimes sephora or just from shoppers (a grocery store/pharmacy type store).

I'm from the UK and usually for me it's H&M, Primark, New Look and that's about it for when i'm going into town. Online I like Disturbia, Asos, Pull and Bear. Anything monochrome or dark coloured is cool with me. (Don't know how I will survive the summer tbh, I've gained the label 'gothic' which is not completely true but there we are.) I do constantly feel like I'm going to set alight when I'm outside. I don't know how Dan does it. Commitment. :rofl:
