Your Guide to What NOT To Wear

You see people wearing clothes that don't suit them almost every day. One must remember to wear something not simply because it has fashion but because it looks good on them. Here are some tips on what to do if you are not sure:


This is not the best hairstyle choice. The spikes at the back, although they probably took a long time to make, look out of place and overdone. The white hairclip at the front in my opinion is also out of place and looks much too big. My suggestion for this person would be to simply wear her hair down, maybe with bangs. The bright color looks very striking already and something as fancy as what she has right now looks
like simply too much.

This hairstyle here so much better. It looks like the person took a lots of time and effort to make it which is good. Unlike the first example this is tight for the person's face shape. And remember, dear friends: if yoyu are not sure, always go for a more natural look!

2) Gothic Clothes:

Unfortunately, both of these outfits are not very good fashion choices. Both of them were clearly going for a victorian or neo-victorian style, but they did not quite know what to do. The girl on the left is wearing a nice skirt, and her gloves are kind of neat. However, the outfit would have looked much better with a blouse or cutsew indtead of a t-shirt and maybe with diffrent shoes, like Tea Party shoes or even simple high-heel boots. Her hair also would have looked better if she got bangs and maybe curled it.
The second girl's outfit gas mostly the same problems, but she also fell into the trap of cheap fabric and lace. Although the design is for sure creative, something in better quality, even if simpler, would have been a great improvement.

This is a much better outfit. The dress and the hat look very nice, and she also is wearing lace gloves. This is a good example of how simple sometimes can look much better then more fancy. Great job!

3) Makeup:

This makeup style suits very few people, and unfortunately this girl is not one of them. Such looks should be saved for visual kei artists and only on stage. In real life, something much simpler and more natural look would be better.


For most styles like lolita and fairy-kei, natural makeup is usually the best choice. When not sure, always go for the simpler look. Always make sure your makeup is applied neatly: there are few things worse then wearing sloppy makeup!

4) Body Type

You must always remember to wear clothes that suit yur body type, especially if you are plus-size. Some clothes look good on one body type and bad on another, and this is normal. In the case above, a more poofy skirt (more petticoat) and a cutsew or blouse instead of the t-shirt. A ponytail is also not the best hairstyle here, but I talked about that already.

She is chubby, we are looking for FAT ones, but thank you for your submission :)

This is much better idea. The shape of the hairstyle and the dress are very flattering.
