Most days I wear working clothes- brass-plated boots, jeans, a fitted tank top, and a beat up sweatshirt. My clothes often get covered in things like paint and machine oil and they have to be somewhat resistant to catching fire. My hair is rapunzel-esque, so I put it in a bun to keep it safe and out of the way.

When I bother dressing nice, my clothes are mostly classic with touches of steampunk, fantasy, and pirate. I wear leather boots with fitted coats or blazers. I wear nice jeans or lacy skirts. I like earcuffs and steampunk earrings. If it's raining, I throw on my pirate hat. I sometimes carry around a tankard or have beads and feathers stuck in my hair.

Cool t-shirt/tank top and jeans/shorts pretty much sums it up for me.

*poke* Revive dead thread?

I wear a strange combination of earthy-tone bohemian thrift-store finds and self-made stuff. I recently started getting mori girl fashion and I've been sketchy a ton of stuff I hope to make soon, maybe even sell on my Etsy page. I make my own jewelry and accessories too to match my outfits. Beats crappy Ardene's buys that fall apart after a week.

I prefer to be a little bit dressy all the time (not super dressed up, but nicer pants than jeans and a buttoned up shirt). The way I generally dress would probably best be described as modern dressy/classy influenced by Steampunk/Goth/militaristic styles (I wear military jackets a lot, as well as non-military blazers). I recently got a faux leather vest and a pocket watch, which I plan to use together (as well as separately sometimes). On some days I won't dress up quite as much and will wear a nerdy t-shirt under a jacket or unbuttoned dress shirt. I also have a thing for long coats. The main ones I wear most frequently are a black overcoat, a brown duster coat, and a vintage WWII-era RCAF greatcoat, and I'm going to make a Vash the Stampede duster this summer for everyday wear. For shoes, I generally wear somewhat dressy shoes or else leather boots (although sometimes red Converse, inspired by the Tenth Doctor). I'm not a fan of hats, so I hardly wear those, but I usually wear scarves when it's cold enough (I have an Aperture Laboratories scarf and a Ravenclaw scarf). I usually wear a necklace with a cross shaped like Wolfwood's gun from Trigun, and sometimes a Mockingjay pin or a Star Trek "Command" rank pin. Obviously, I'm quite fashion conscious for a guy...

...most of the time. Above is how I dress during the school year or any other time when I'm going to be around people my age. During the summer, when I hardly ever see anyone I know other than my parents, I don't really give a crap how I look, and usually just wear shorts and t-shirts.

Very few pictures exist of me in my daily clothes. Here's the only decent one.

Done: Captain Malcolm Reynolds, Eleventh Doctor, Captain Levi (SnK), Captain Jack Harkness, Vash the Stampede, The Kid (Bastion), Booker Dewitt, Arno Victor Dorian, Jaime Lannister

In progress: Connor Kenway - 10%; Bucky Barnes/Winter Soldier - 15% (on hold); Mal Reynolds (improved) - 15%

Future/considering: Daryl Dixon, improved Vash, Shay Patrick Cormac, Mako (LoK), Edward Kenway

Cameron1138, I love the outfit! Very handsome!

I personally find long pants very uncomfortable so I wear short ones with socks, tights or stockings. In winter I just wear many layers to keep warm. As for shirts I love collared button-ups. For shoes... First of all, they have to have heels, and preferably platforms. Chunky platform shoes or boots are my favorites. (I love, love boots.) Oh, and I also like headdresses and hats. As for colors, I usually wear black and white, occasionally with a bit of red and pink. X)

I'm currently trying to redo my wardrobe as I've changed styles. XP Cutting my hair short soon, too.
Next costumes:
Journey Traveler
Midna imp form
Odolwa Moon Child from Majora's Mask

I'll revive this thread.

I dress in mainly cute Japanese fashion like fairy-kei or gyaru. People tend to stare at me a lot for my clothes, but oh well.

I look pretty decent in anything cute, though I prefer androgynous visual kei / boystyle any time I possibly can without repeating outfits too often. Kinda depends on how I do my makeup and hair that day.

I'm trying to change the way I dress. I used to be a creature of baggy jeans and t shirts, but when it came to my attention that I look like a 12 year old it had to stop. I've been experimenting for the past couple months-- Button fronts, weird vests, punkish stuff that looks beat to death, sweatervests, and so on. I'm too cheap to buy new shoes, so everything is either red/black checkers, Harley boots, or the dress shoes I use for half my cosplays. I look ridiculous and it's great.
