I'm so fed up of wearing the same "uniform" but if it ain't broke, don't fix it -right? I am a skinny jeans, nice shoes, slim fitting top kinda girl but I would love to mix it up. I have been the same since a teenager! Long hair, simple make up - not really got into trends but tried to look stylish ifkwim.
nope but I only recently have discovered being feminine. I would say that is my main look now too. Except my shoes are mainly ankle boots (skinny calves that look like tiny pencils in most knee boots <sob>) and I nearly always am in a fitted double button breasted coat because of the freezing weather where I live.
I did the floral dress and chunky boots thing to death last year and now cant even look at a floral dress (unless its a short chiffon kind of thing)
Lately I'm uniformly in self-made denim shorts turned up so they are really short (I have 5 pairs) worn over leggings, with a slubby t shirt or silk camisole top, and a long line fitted blazer with vintage button.
For winter, I'm liking the buttoned fitted double breasted long jacket look, with a short chiffon dress that you can just see under the coat, tights, shoeboots. There was an picture in W magazine and I fell in love with it....
I am not certain I have a signature look as I dress very much according to mood. I veer between classic (hepburn-esque trousers Kathrine or Audrey, season dependant, twinset or blouse but with a twist), the ubiquitous Top Shop skinnies and tee (accessorised with chunky knits and scarves aplenty) and original 50s dresses and shrunken cardis. I also love the tux jacket over LBD with shoe boots and opaques for winter evenings out.
Skinny jeans or cords with nice knitwear- cropped cardis, long cardis, Ts and tank tops, or smartish trousers as above. Occasional just above knee skirt and riding boots or ballet flats. Occasionally leggings and long tunic/dress- but never White Stuff! But I am mid 50s.
Fat Skater/Surfer Boy, depending on the weather. Not helped by having an ipod or a Nintendo DSi on my person. I have very girly hair though and I'm not butch, which throws people. And at work I dress in corporatewear so they don't recognise me when they see me outside of work.
