Describe your fashion style or whatever

I saw this topic by Metalsnakezero called “Life as or with a goth” and I was inspired to do this to see where yall stand in the dimension of FASHION!!!

I’m gonna take a wild guess and say right off the bat most of yall are grungy and wear the shit out of flannels and I FULLY SUPPORT IT!!!

Me personally: I’ve been emo, I’ve been faux punk, I’ve been traditional goth, I’ve had this weird phase where i mixed black clothes with neon colored ones and was like a walking highlighter people we’re like weirded OUT when they saw me. Right now I’m kinda settling on just punk. Leather jackets/ all black/ black hair/ spikes/studs/pins/chokers etc. I just love everything about the signature punk style.

EDIT: yall can also list ur “phases”. Like if yall were ever metal heads or like manic pixie dream gorls yall know the drill.

i am Reformed Punk, so i still wear Propagandhi shirts and jeans and sneakers, but they are very nice shirts and very nice jeans and very nice sneakers, and I wear a very nice sweater on top, and they are also ethically-made because that is a distinction I can afford to make now.

When I was in high school, I had long hair and I did a thing where I put got2b hair glue in my hair, then rub it out with a towel so it was all mangled and malleable, and then I’d use more glue to shape it into a huge charger around the front of my hairline (imagine the Statue of Liberty, but not spikes). then in college i smoked a lot of weed and stopped trying to do anything aesthetically. then i was in a relationship with a rich woman and I was introduced to Fashion, so now that informs how I loop back and represent being a Reformed Punk through the lens of nicer clothes

Reformed punk, reformed goth, now whatever this ridiculous getup is:

I own three pairs of checkerboard Vans

GORLLLLLLLL LMFAOOOOO that was the weirdest story ever u sound fucking cool dasjkmasdkjsadkjsad U WENT FROM DEMOLISHING UR HAIR, TO SMOKING WEED, TO DATING A RICH WOMAN now those are the kind of transitions i’d never thought i’d see on this topic. But i mean i can relate to u cuz i didnt put glue in my hair but when it was long i would literally put extra strong putty on it and hairspray the shit out of it and every time i would shower and comb my wet hair the comb would literally get stuffed with gross left-over putty and my hair looked like a post-apocalyptic birds nest so it had to GO.


@dogsarecool so like…is reformed punk/goth like a preppier version of it? sorry if this is a super dumb question but ive never went through “reforming” my fashion styles i just kept adding more and more darkness and androgyny till it wasnt safe for me to leave the house and i had to settle for an everyday “artsy kid” look.

My current fashion goal is sewing patches that show my interests into a denim jacket I got second-hand from a friend. It’s going pretty well, but I need more enamel pins. I won’t be satisfied until that jacket can double as armor in some places.

Aside from that, I dress pretty casually because I’m very tired almost all the time, and stuff like dressing nicely and wearing make-up takes more effort than I can muster

naw, like I was punk about 1995-2002 and then I had a goth phase from 2002-2010 and now I’m not either of them


#8

Oh i’d kill to wear make-up. If I could wear make-up and not get murdered in cold blood by skinheads on the street I would talk to school looking like a clown like i would stuff my face so hard it would be hard to blink. But I mean its whatever fashion is art art is subjective love urself even if u wear like…a band t-shirt and baggy denim jeans who cares


@dogsarecool ohhhhhhh…awwwwww…I feel like I’m gonna be weird and gothy for life. I feel like when i have children im gonna have like hair down to my ankles and people are gonna be like “is that ur mommy” and theyre gonna be like “yeah i guess lmfaooooooo”


#10

I mean I still have my battlevest and UK Underground boots and shit, I just don’t rock the look all the time.


#11

also patches on denim are trendy as fuck now so i hope u have a lot of fun with it!


#12

I mostly don’t wear it because if I do, people are even more likely to code me as a girl, especially if I’m not binding or wearing baggy clothes and slouching. :c


#13

oh i totally feel u. It sucks. I have to walk out looking like a dude because if I don’t - death approaches - and the stupid thing is if i COULD wear make-up people would probably think im a trans woman which is even dumber. IGNORANCE IS AWFULLLLL


@dogsarecool did u ever play the guitar. I’m thinking of buying either a guitar or a keyboard.


I’m just sick of the idea that trans men/ trans masculine ppl can’t wear stuff like make-up or nail polish or whatever without people getting all up in their shit. The same with trans women/femmes where if they walk out barefaced and people are immediately like ARENT U SUPPOSED TO LOOK LIKE A GIRL. like stfu people can look like whatever they want to look like that doesn’t change or impact their gender identity.


#16

My daily look is usually plaid or band shirts (or both), with accessorising done with a multitude of beard braid styles. I’m waiting eagerly for it to start getting colder so I can embrace my new ridiculous fashion style of Viking From The Post-apocalyptic Wastelands of Australia.


#17

Metal trash my entire life, with no end in sight.


#18

Nice. Shorts that look like they’re from a High school gym class is totally my thing right now. lol You actually look how I looked for most of last Summer.
I totally get the reformed punk, reformed goth thing, because I did the exact same move you did. I wore a kind of bright colored short, but the inner goth in me could not divorce himself from his black shirt. I actually like that aesthetic though. Goth/emo it up then slap on some neon somewhere in the mix.


#19

Ayyyeee now that’s dope. I’m jealous of your hair. You got a awesome Bret Heart thing going on with those glasses.
You can never go wrong looking like " The Best there is, the Best there was,The Best there ever will be"


#20

ok - you look fucking cool like the beard braids and the waiting for a specific season to come is 10/10 cool (btw i do the thing with the seasons too - i wait for summer to come so i can dress in black and leather jackets and have people looking at me like im an alien its so fun)


#21

I’m being nice to y’all because I wear a lot of very tight yoga shorts - those Soffees are more presentable


#22

omgggggg i found another leather jacket friend!!! though we share leather jackets im sure our styles are totally different - i dress the way i do to stand out u dress like u do because u probably like that type of music. I kinda feel like my reason is shallow but in all honesty i just like the clothes whether or not they stand out


#23

my partner alternatively calls it grunge or “Looks like I know how to fix a car” plus Slytherin Cap and Backpack


#24

Not sure if you’re a wrestling fan, but you look like you should be managing an ECW tag team c. 1998. And I mean that as a compliment!
