ASK AMI: Fashion at Age 16

alinisthename asked: wht should a girl at age 6teen wear? :)


Teenagers shouldn’t restrict their styles to just one genre unless if it’s influenced by music, someone they look up to, ambitions or hobby. Experiment experiment experiment while you still can, don’t let your teen years pass you by just coz you are stuck in one look unless that’s the style you’re really sure you want your whole life. And I quote:

“You don’t need fashion designers when you are young. Have faith in your own bad taste. Buy the cheapest thing in your local thrift shop - the clothes that are freshly out of style with even the hippest people a few years older than you. Get on the fashion nerves of your peers, not your parents - that is the key to fashion leadership. Ill-fitting is always stylish. But be more creative - wear your clothes inside out, backward, upside down. Throw bleach in a load of colored laundry. Follow the exact opposite of the dry cleaning instructions inside the clothes that cost the most in your thrift shop. Don’t wear jewelry - stick Band-Aids on your wrists or make a necklace out of them. Wear Scotch tape on the side of your face like a bad face-lift attempt. Mismatch your shoes. Best yet, do as Mink Stole used to do: go to the thrift store the day after Halloween, when the children’s trick-or-treat costumes are on sale, buy one, and wear it as your uniform of defiance.” - Role Models by John Waters (via)

Read all sorts of mags to be inspired, listen to musics to get your groove on & read books from science fiction to poetry to manga coz you’ll never know what you’re missing in life. From there, you’ll develop your own interest & personality. That, will shine through, through your everyday style. Bonne chance love!

Ahh before that, here’s a checklist I found for what closet staples a girl should have. Closet staples are the basics that you can use to mix & match with all the other items in your closet to create your own style. Do keep in mind that it’s a universal check-list made by Matchbook Magazine. You don’t necessarily must have all 50 pieces if you are living in equatorial countries.. But of course this is a closet check-list for girls of all ages ♥
