Which Girl's Style Do You Like Best?


#1

Four girls, four styles.

Which girl’s style do you like best?
–>
1,2,3,4.


#2

None of them overly thrills me. But I think I prefer the second girl.

The first girl reminds me of the look typical of the German exchange students our school hosted back in February.


#3

*The blond girl with the yellow shirt…that is relatively how my 13 yr old daughter dresses, without the sweater. I think it’s modest, also. *


#4

I wasnt thrilled by any of those either but would say a combo of 2 and three:o
Wish I could be more helpful.


#5

hmm. i personally would wear something like number four, but with something to make it a little less “lumberjack/Nirvana”. Typically I only wear skirts or dresses anyway, so maybe a plain dress instead of the white t-shirt and jeans. And minus the beanie.


#6

Okay, I know it’s not particularly “feminine,” but I’m partial to #4. It makes me nostalgic for my high school years, when “grunge” was the big thing. (yeah, yeah, I wore thermal underwear, acid wash jeans, Doc Martens, and a flannel shirt around my waist. Not pretty and prim, but my dad appreciated the rather non-boy-appealing look.)

Also, I live in Alaska, and that stocking cap looks like it would be sooooo warm.

As for just plain cuteness, though, #2 has the claim on that.


#7

I prefer #2. If it didn’t have holes in the jeans. I don’t understand that whole buying jeans that look old thing. (And I’m 23 so you’d think I’d get it…) Just seems like a waste of money to me.

I would like #1, but I can’t stand skinny jeans. For #3 I don’t like the high heels or tight pants, I like the shirt though. Then I just really don’t prefer #4, I’m assuming those are name brand clothes, but they don’t look like something I’d spend money on.

Just my opinions! :slight_smile:


#8

If only can choose from this four-I thought that-would be 4,
only- that white top and jeans, without that shirt.
Yes, white top and jeans I wear often.


#9

Me too…I don’t like clothes that come pre-“broken in”. If I am going to pay good money for 'em, I’ll put holes in 'em myself! :stuck_out_tongue:


#10

Is the model for 2 the same one in 4?:confused:


#11

Oh, StrawberryJam,:slight_smile: I thought that-they are not the same.


#12

I wish there was an option 5 or something. Maybe I am too old to post here. Or too old fashioned? I don’t mind 2 of the four, but that is only based on having 4 choices.

I feel like I have more options of choice on laundry detergent.:blush:


#13

None.

I dislike the fabric of the trousers on #1, #2, #3 and #4. It feels like they have less than trousers on. It’s more like pyjama bottoms or some kind of hose to me.

#1 would be lovely if the trousers had some form of their own. She would be the Style Queen of the four.

#2 would be great without the jeans being torn and with a bit more of feminity to it. She would then be the girl next door, which is an endangered species by now.

#3 looks nice but the trousers aren’t that great - it makes me wonder how on earth could they be comfortable to wear? They’re both too clingy and they seem to crinkle in some places. The blouse could use a more decided fabric.

#4 would be another girl next door if the jeans were less stretchy and there were no cap. A little bit masculine for my preference. IMHO, in that style of clothing, women should either 1) wear decidedly ladies’ versions of trousers or blouses or shirts, or 2) wear precisely the male shirt. This may sound surprising to you, but I think that when a girl wears a men’s shirt, then it’s obvious she’s wearing a men’s shirt (from her father or brother kinda - this sort of impression), whereas if she wears a slightly emasculated version of the men’s clothes, it just looks bad.

I don’t have the time to go through fashion sites and show you something both modern and nice to the eye, but remind me one day and I will. As it is, I just have too much work to do this week.

Some ideas (for girls mostly):

  • no bland stretchy fabrics for trousers, that’s just not good; use trousers that have a form of their own or wear a skirt or dress instead, really;
  • generally don’t go for the “silly” look - bring out the best of your age, experience, wisdom etc, trust me it’ll be better that way :p;
  • try not to offend good old good manners too much (no wearing a cap indoors, please)
  • don’t be afraid to wear something that looks like a ladies’ piece of clothing;
  • if you want to wear a men’s shirt, get a real one;
  • take a careful look in the mirror and make sure that cuts like in #3 don’t allow bra straps or any other underwear to show - people may tell you it’s no big deal in the modern times, but you don’t receive guests in sleepwear, do you?
  • if you call me shallow, I will lecture back.

Besides, the models aren’t quite teenagers, they look like they’re each 25, which makes them look silly, which is probably a contributing factor to not giving that great an impression.


#14

Now let us contribute to the development of both modest and reasonable fashion on CAF, given that it seems I just really can’t get myself to work today:

Sundresses:

1: amazon.com/Ruby-Rox-Juniors-Dress-Medium/dp/B0028AD75K/ref=sr_1_21?ie=UTF8&s=apparel&qid=1249911249&sr=1-21

You won’t look good in it unless you’re tall and probably at least 17 - and it’s not for everyday, either, but looks nice for parties, receptions etc.

2: amazon.com/Rampage-Juniors-Printed-Dress-Yellow/dp/B00284AOCU/ref=sr_1_43?ie=UTF8&s=apparel&qid=1249911272&sr=1-43

If the guys aren’t too hot-blooded where you live. I like it very much but people could complain about the shoulders and I see where they’re coming from.

3: amazon.com/Roxy-Juniors-Meadow-Mazarine-Medium/dp/B0024NLLB8/ref=sr_1_47?ie=UTF8&s=apparel&qid=1249911272&sr=1-47

Nice. It could use a waist, but it’s nice.

4: amazon.com/Womens-ONeill-Azura-Dress-Concrete/dp/B002H3HBV4/ref=sr_1_63?ie=UTF8&s=apparel&qid=1249911300&sr=1-63

It’s nice but people could complain about it being a bit too clingy. I say it depends on the final impression. It probably doesn’t look the same on every girl.

The rest of the dresses seems too private to wear outside (some of them might be OK for the garden or the beach), too pyjama-like, too exposing (particularly the cleave is too big on almost all of them).

Tank dresses:

1: amazon.com/Ruby-Rox-Juniors-Party-Turquoise/dp/B0028AD7A0/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&s=apparel&qid=1249911780&sr=1-2

Very nice. IMHO great for some dancing.

2: amazon.com/Kensie-Juniors-Artistic-Floral-Printed/dp/B0029U26KQ/ref=sr_1_11?ie=UTF8&s=apparel&qid=1249911780&sr=1-11

Good for the garden, a trip to the grocer’s etc. in the summer. Probably not good for strolling a crowded city centre.

I have a problem with the rest because some are too minimalistic, others seem too private (again, like a pyjama), yet others have the Lollita problem (like the pink), the cleaveage on some others is too much IMHO.

Party:

1: amazon.com/Tiered-Ruffle-Chiffon-Dress-Bridesmaid/dp/B001N11KFY/ref=sr_1_8?ie=UTF8&s=apparel&qid=1249911979&sr=1-8

A mature girl could handle this one without looking too flirty.

2: amazon.com/Style-Satin-Prom-Dress-Black/dp/B001ENWRC6/ref=sr_1_9?ie=UTF8&s=apparel&qid=1249911979&sr=1-9

This one is okay

3: amazon.com/Ruched-Ruffle-Satin-Dress-Bridesmaid/dp/B001E6ORFI/ref=sr_1_18?ie=UTF8&s=apparel&qid=1249911979&sr=1-18

This one would be okay on a girl with a smaller chest.

4: amazon.com/Ruby-Rox-Juniors-Party-Turquoise/dp/B0028AD7A0/ref=sr_1_34?ie=UTF8&s=apparel&qid=1249912018&sr=1-34

It was up there already.

5: amazon.com/Ruby-Rox-Ruched-Turtleneck-Dress/dp/B00127S4YE/ref=sr_1_57?ie=UTF8&s=apparel&qid=1249912041&sr=1-57

As long as the girl doesn’t put up seductive poses, this would be very nice. But with provocative make-up and an attitude to match, it would change radically. I like this one very much.

6: amazon.com/Satin-Halter-Prom-Dress-Bridesmaid/dp/B001GFESY2/ref=sr_1_75?ie=UTF8&s=apparel&qid=1249912064&sr=1-75

Very nice except it really should have more of a back. I would love it if it weren’t for the back. I imagine it might be OK in the summer. Wouldn’t suggest wearing it if the guys can’t be vouched for.

7: amazon.com/Necessary-Objects-Juniors-Twist-X-Small/dp/B001HK23IE/ref=sr_1_83?ie=UTF8&s=apparel&qid=1249912064&sr=1-83

This is something rather mature for late teens or early twenties, but it’s nice.

8: amazon.com/Juniors-Abstract-Floral-Tangerine-Fuchsia/dp/B00243FORU/ref=sr_1_87?ie=UTF8&s=apparel&qid=1249912064&sr=1-87

Very nice. I love it.

9: amazon.com/XOXO-Juniors-V-Neck-Printed-Animal/dp/B001WAKZBG/ref=sr_1_93?ie=UTF8&s=apparel&qid=1249912064&sr=1-93

Nice. The back is much better than the front. Some people could complain about the length and I can see where they’re coming from.

I have a problem with most of the rest. Once again, many have too much cleavage, some are too short, others generally look like there’s not enough fabric, a couple are too Lollita-ish. And a couple are just badly cut. :wink:

Baby doll (I’m actually surprised I found anything good in this category):

1: amazon.com/HURLEY-Street-Spirit-Maxi-Dress/dp/B0020Z4AKO/ref=sr_1_11?ie=UTF8&s=apparel&qid=1249912601&sr=1-11

You can laugh all day long at me, but this one will look good on some girls, even though it might look comical on others. It does take a slim figure to look good.

2: amazon.com/ELEMENT-Solana-Maxi-Dress-Pink/dp/B0020Z24UM/ref=sr_1_22?ie=UTF8&s=apparel&qid=1249912601&sr=1-22

Nice for the summer.

3: amazon.com/Hurley-HURLEY-Adele-Dress-Riviera/dp/B002AQ5ODK/ref=sr_1_21?ie=UTF8&s=apparel&qid=1249912601&sr=1-21

Tennis only. :stuck_out_tongue: Just kidding. I don’t want you to think I hate all short dresses. This one would be good if any.

4: amazon.com/RVCA-Merrick-Maxi-Dress-Purple/dp/B0029SEXTK/ref=sr_1_24?ie=UTF8&s=apparel&qid=1249912601&sr=1-24

Good but not on every chest size. Very good for a size like the mannequin.

5: amazon.com/ONeill-ONEILL-Mixer-Dress/dp/B002DZAF2S/ref=sr_1_26?ie=UTF8&s=apparel&qid=1249912695&sr=1-26

Nice. Especially around the house or the garden, but not like it can’t be worn outside. It’s okay.

6: amazon.com/Fox-Racing-FOX-Monarch-Dress/dp/B001WQ9B9W/ref=sr_1_27?ie=UTF8&s=apparel&qid=1249912695&sr=1-27

Nice but may turn out somewhat risque. Just be somewhat careful.

7: amazon.com/ED-HARDY-Beautiful-Ghost-Dress/dp/B002GTV3QI/ref=sr_1_33?ie=UTF8&s=apparel&qid=1249912695&sr=1-33

Nice. :slight_smile:

8: amazon.com/FOX-Set-You-Dress-Black/dp/B001UASB8M/ref=sr_1_46?ie=UTF8&s=apparel&qid=1249912695&sr=1-46

Maybe with a small chest.

On second thought, skipped from one of the above categories:

1: amazon.com/Strapless-Taffeta-Bridesmaid-Prom-Dress/dp/B0021JZ8P0/ref=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&s=apparel&qid=1249913125&sr=1-5

Just depends on the girl. Even red & black looks good on some types (e.g. Hispanic).


#15

I won’t be giving much opinion about jeans or other trousers because those really depend very much on the wearer. The trick is to avoid the skinny brands unless one can really look good and modest in them, to pick the right size (i.e. not two sizes too small), to avoid low-riders (there’s no good use to that fashion) and to put them on and look carefully before buying - preferably in company, like one or two other people who won’t be trying to convince you to go for the sexy fashion but will appreciate something which simply lies well.

Some examples that come to my mind are this:

amazon.com/Mossimo-Supply-Co%252e-Bleached-Utility/dp/B000PIH9W4/ref=sr_1_299?ie=UTF8&s=apparel&qid=1249913822&sr=1-299

amazon.com/Dickies-Girl-Juniors-Original-Rider/dp/B0016L88WE/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&s=apparel&qid=1249914216&sr=1-3

amazon.com/XOXO-Suit-Pant-Black-11/dp/B001C3ZHJS/ref=sr_1_8?ie=UTF8&s=apparel&qid=1249914216&sr=1-8

amazon.com/Dickies-Girl-Juniors-College-Black/dp/B0016L85SQ/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&s=apparel&qid=1249914216&sr=1-2

amazon.com/XOXO-Juniors-Trouser-Black-12/dp/B001N9RUY6/ref=sr_1_20?ie=UTF8&s=apparel&qid=1249914216&sr=1-20

amazon.com/BCX-Two-Button-Pant-Black-15/dp/B001FF4BQS/ref=sr_1_24?ie=UTF8&s=apparel&qid=1249914216&sr=1-24

amazon.com/BCX-Cuffed-Pant-Black-9/dp/B000W7368O/ref=sr_1_49?ie=UTF8&s=apparel&qid=1249914259&sr=1-49

amazon.com/Levis-Womens-Petite-Relaxed-Medium/dp/B0018R5BPI/ref=sr_1_18?ie=UTF8&s=apparel&qid=1249914416&sr=1-18

amazon.com/Bongo-Juniors-Flare-Jean-Medium/dp/B001L3NJV2/ref=sr_1_28?ie=UTF8&s=apparel&qid=1249914434&sr=1-28

(depending on the size with the last one)

amazon.com/Levis-Boot-Cut-Jeans-Breezy-Blue/dp/B001KXB2P8/ref=sr_1_82?ie=UTF8&s=apparel&qid=1249914519&sr=1-82

(not 100% sure, could be a bit less low-riding)

amazon.com/Silver-Jeans-Boot-Cut-Medium-25x32/dp/B001G7ZKSI/ref=sr_1_110?ie=UTF8&s=apparel&qid=1249914532&sr=1-110

(very elegant cut for a pair of jeans, I must say)

amazon.com/Silver-Jeans-Distressed-Boot-Cut-Medium/dp/B001JGARU2/ref=sr_1_129?ie=UTF8&s=apparel&qid=1249914597&sr=1-129

(should be okay)

amazon.com/Silver-Jeans-Label-Tuesday-24x33/dp/B00138MM5O/ref=sr_1_168?ie=UTF8&s=apparel&qid=1249914610&sr=1-168

(another elegant cut, should be okay with the right silhouette, yes, I know it takes some effort to keep one, yes, I’m in perfect shape myself either and I couldn’t probably wear this one if I were a woman :p)

amazon.com/Bongo-Juniors-Fierce-Straight-Jean/dp/B001GCUQT6/ref=sr_1_173?ie=UTF8&s=apparel&qid=1249914623&sr=1-173

(could be all right, depends on the back)

amazon.com/Armani-Exchange-Light-Tattered-Jean/dp/B0028U6FRC/ref=sr_1_192?ie=UTF8&s=apparel&qid=1249914623&sr=1-192

(ditto what above)

amazon.com/Obey-Electric-Pants-Women-Black/dp/B002KQANVI/ref=sr_1_195?ie=UTF8&s=apparel&qid=1249914640&sr=1-195

(not immodestly tight but IMHO would look better being less tight… anyway)

amazon.com/Roxy-Factory-Womens-Jeans-Midnight/dp/B001PMOJFY/ref=sr_1_204?ie=UTF8&s=apparel&qid=1249914798&sr=1-204

(might be good)

Anyway, the view is limited and I don’t have a woman’s eye. Just an example of what I think about jeans: not too low, not too skinny, generally not drawing too much attention to the curves, some showing off might be okay if it’s kept in control (e.g. the neverending legs idea if the rest is modest), bell designs can be cute, jeans cut after the shape of suit trousers look good too. Anything that has “hot” or “skinny” in the name does so for a reason. :stuck_out_tongue:

And I can’t see why it’s juniors given that most of the models are 25 and the designs fit precisely that age category anyway. :stuck_out_tongue:

Need to go do some work finally. You can find me at Clothes Police Dept. if you need me, though. :stuck_out_tongue:


#16

None of those styles seem very unique… they all have sort of an “edgy” or “grungy” feel… not bad, but just not a very good spectrum of different styles. :shrug:


#17

#4 but only because I’m a tomboy at heart. I wear mostly skirts now but that outfit is something I would have worn during my highschool/college years and will still wear on occasion when I’m not pregnant. Don’t care for the ripped jeans look though… as someone said, I’ll break them in myself thank-you-very-much.

All the rest are wearing too low cut shirts, IMHO. Girls today are NOT taught how to bend over at the waist while wearing a shirt like that. They all bend over and all you see is the inside-of-the-shirt-that-shouldn’t-be-seen parts.


#18

I like #3. I could see my daughters in that, though maybe with more practical shoes.

I think #3 looks polished and classy, but still young.

I really have no issue with clingy, “skinny” jeans. If they fit right and look nice, then fine.


#19

Exactly exactly!!! I agree on all points - I could have written this post myself!! :thumbsup:
(well - except for the 23 part, I’m more like 44 :o )

~Liza


#20

If I look at them through the eyes of my 18yo niece then I get this:

  1. Goth
  2. Prep
  3. Slut
  4. Slacker.

I’m so glad that teenage girls are not judgmental.
