What's Your Favorite Style?

Sally Stone

Recommended Posts

I'll start this off by telling you all that my favorite feminine style is female business attire.  I'll pair a knee-length pencil skirt with a nice blouse and a cropped jacket.  A variation of the same style would be a sheath dress with a shrug or cropped jacket.  And, since it's business attire, it's always easy to get away with higher heels.  If I want to stay on the dressier side, I'll wear pumps, but I can dress the look down slightly by wearing boots or booties.  The bottom line is there are so many options with a business-oriented look.

I'm a farm girl despiser the fact that i'm in jersey as well.  Fortunate to be on the family farm and i am often seen in jeans and a rather plain top or tattered barn coat doing chores.  In the winter if i heart a skirt it is close to touching the ground and when it gets colder i wear fleece tights as well......  Mmmmm cozy and comfee........  When out or about in public i usually wear a nice skirt and top, sometimes paid with a jacket as you describe but i rarely wear heels now.  This older gal gets away with that and again it's a matter of comfort for me.  I loved the day when i was in a business suit at the hearing for my name change and was asked if i was an attorney.   I guess clothes indeed make the woman.

I honestly don't have one yet.  I have had very little experience wearing much female clothing. Well to be truthful.  NONE as of this post outside the house.  As a guy I was always in a company uniform of one business or another for most of my days (nights-worked night shift for almost 30 years)

This consisted of jeans/work pants and a t shirt.  I am now in a job where I get to dress in "golf attire" and truly love this.  Most of my golf polos are of a very sleek and silky nature.  As are my slacks.  

I have started wearing my female under garments full time since coming out.  My wife is strangely ok with this and still does our laundry together. (I'm not allowed to)

Folds it too.  ( I am lucky there)

I have recently ordered a couple pairs of Dansko female clogs to wear with my work clothing.  Simply black and brown for now to match the clothing I already own.  In the hospitals I work in I see plenty of male nurses and doctors wearing these types of shoes, or very similar, so its not too outrageous but they do make me feel more feminine.  Every little bit counts.

In my near future I feel I will convert my guy "golf" shirts and pants over to a more feminine style.  Most likely still a shirt and pant outfit.  Maybe swap in a skirt some days.  Maybe just girl golf shirts.  LOL

(I play a lot of golf too so they will at least be useful when I am dressing far more feminine for work.)

I can't say they are my favorites, and I am not Goth, but if I reach of any outfit these days it seems to be some type of black T shirt and black slacks.  My most common source of T shirts are support purchases for Trans groups I am part of.  The one I grabbed when I tossed off my pajama top reads "Trans Voices Matter".

I usually go for a more preppy, kinda tomboy goth thing, but also a light and cute pastel style


basically flannels, graphic tees, and black ripped jeans

Let's see... daily wear is usually a t-shirt with something clever written on it and jeans. Mostly dark colors and blues. I can get away with splashes of maroon though. I love my maroon jeans. Then I put a sweatshirt or a sweater on top if it because I'm cold. My current favorite is gray, kind of shapeless and has a fox wearing glasses featured predominantly on the front. Sometimes I spice it up with a long sleeved shirt. I'm sensitive about my bust line though so there's usually a high neck line with minimal cleavage showing.

More formal wear will be a nice shirt. Usually blue or black with blue accents or a blue pattern. Then add slacks this time of year. Going formal I'll add one or two accents. Generally a necklace or wristband with a decorative scarf (again, sensitive about my lack of a bust line).

No matter what, I'm nearly always wearing my favorite pair of boots. They're kind of medium-dressy ankle boots with a couple of decorative straps. They go with almost anything, but I also have party shoes, formal shoes, sneakers and athletic shoes as the situation requires. 


In the summer, it will either be a t-shirt or a tank (I look great in a tank top) with shorts. Sometimes I rotate in one of my skirts. I have a lovely peasant skirt that is easily one of the coolest things I own on a hot day. Summertime is always sandals unless I'm dressing for a specific formal function.


For the most part, I look like a librarian. Not the sexy kind. Glasses. Conservative dress. Usually with some drapery. I've got a real thing for drapery when I'm decorating myself to go out.

This time of year, with the cold weather, on top I'll have a cami, women's long tee, and hoodie.  On the bottom, for nicer occasions, I'll

go with women's Chaps or Candie's pull-on dress slacks; otherwise, slim jeans (over leggings if it's really cold).  For accessories, I always wear my butterfly necklace close to my heart, and alternate various rings, anklets, etc. as the mood strikes me.  My hair is now long enough for a barrette, which means it's a little easier on my hair than wearing a ponytail every day.


For sleep, I like a nice cozy women's nightshirt.

Warm weather: long, loose t-shirt with shorts (except when I get in the studio, then I loose the shorts and wear the t-shirt and my panties).

Cold weather: t-shirt with sweater, fleece or flannel shirt over it, and jeans.

I'm not certain anyone would ever accuse me of being stylish. But I'm comfortable and that counts.

I am often in black too, much of the week. Likely a black polo neck jumper, black leggings with a short black tube skirt. I wear black (sometimes burgundy) thicker or fleece tights or leggings in the winter. A long woolen top (I have one in white, one in purple and one in black) or a plain t-shirt with one of various skirts (these are patterned). I do have jeans but I seldom wear them as the alternatives I find far more comfortable. I have various fleeces in different colours and a couple of coats, one being a very warm quilted anorak which I love and also have a matching color trapper style hat which is very cosy. Bedtime it is pyjamas or fleecy top and pyjama bottoms during the winter. skimpy wear in the summer.

I have had my M2F daughter who is now 13 grow her hair long, i recently had it permed and her stylist (out stylist) thought it would be best to hold it back in a barrette and she gave my daughter a very nice one. She looks real cute, she has bangs with her permed hair being pulled back in the barrette. It looks really nice on her, I love the looks on her.

I wear my hair like that too. I usually hold it back with this:




Though I change it out from time to time. It's a cute look and easy to set in place. It also keep the hair out of my face.

Hello Sally,                     I am new to this site, so I will answer as best as I can.  The style I prefer is the 50,s look, the flared skirts/dresses with a large nice petticoat underneath, usually worn with stockings & high heels. Those rock & rolls days, carefree style & what I call the real girly look. love,  Helenmarie

      It’s another slow day at work and I’m having trouble staying awake. I pray to the Goddess that this mug of unicorn blood will restore some vitality.   
    • Shay
      @Elizabeth Star in the state of Ohio it is or at least I don't want to go through process more than once of I can.  
    • Jamie68
      It was last on my list also, at least the gender change on SS card. I just got my name changed on SS card since it's a long process to get a birth cert. from Puerto Rico. It takes over a month. They sent back my application once already saying my money order was wrong amount, and also said I needed a lawyer to submit it, which is incorrect. I resubmitted about 3 weeks ago. Still waiting for response.
    • Jamie68
      Yay! It's an awesome feeling. Congrats.
    • Elizabeth Star
      You have to change your birth certificate first?  That’s currently last on my list.    It’s always good whenever you can be yourself. A good haircut can doing amazing things for self affirmation and easing dysphoria. At least it did for me. I agree with what Jackie said about the comfort zone. You may learn something new about yourself.

      @Mroz All the good advice and vibes above are spot on, and as you are probably finding out as a spouse / support person already, learning, listening, and empathy are all really important. When there is a new couple in my support group, I usually mention these things...   Everything about transitioning takes time for both partners, so do things in bite-sized portions and at a manageable pace. Make sure to give yourself mental breaks from transitioning too; don't let it become your whole world even though its a really big part of it now.   As a spouse / support partner, don't feel bad if some things just "don't sit right" anymore between you two. Some things can be accepted like getting used to snoring or conceding to the fact she spends way too much time gaming. Other things might take a little more creativity to overcome or are deal breakers. Just remember that neither of you are wrong, its just a question of compatibility. And believe it or not, we all change as we grow older, so compatibility questions will crop up eventually; you just hit the lottery this time!   Both of you should see a therapist, and I generally advise it being separate professionals. Your partner will be focusing on a lot of physical, social, and emotional issues of transitioning and will need a therapist well-versed in non-binary and gender-based topics. As a spouse / support partner, you will have a whole set of different issues usually starting with how to reconcile your own sense of self with a new reality you were not expecting, and how to do that while still being supportive of your partner.   Everything else is just going to happen for both of you, and no two transition stories are alike. Have a plan but don't over-plan, have goals but keep a flexible time table, and have some fun with it! For every "bad" story we all share about transitioning, there are at least two more good things that happen, so live for those moments! Good luck on your journey together!

      Good luck @Jazz-per Be who you are.

      @Shay  The Church..!!! Omg that's amazing   May Rod have even the slightest relief from his sufferings today
    • Shay
      @Elizabeth Star congrats. I'm still waiting for my new birth certificate to come so I can get my SS and Driver's licenses changed then tackle insurance, estate planning and credit cards..... Sadly no dress makes me look good yet - I'm still in the gas to the floor and clutch in - with family and wanting surgery.
    • Shay
      @Maddee my mentor is my music producer who is currently suffering from a brain tumor. He was the only one who really encouraged me musically and although I had 2 brothers (they never supported me) he was my older brother in truth who advised me and looked out for me. He produced an album for me that almost got my band signed to Atlantic Records (dang band imploded) and then we went to Nashville where he and another friend who played in The Dillards recorded demoes and we just ran out of money. Over the years we co-ran Leon Russell's old studio in Tulsa called tThe Church, where Tom Petty first recorded with Mudcrutch and tRoger Linn created the Linn drum and all the Beatles as well as Bob Marley recorded.  Only his brain tumor he was stuill advising and encouraging me and using ProTools via DropBox to mix my songs. His name is Rod Seagram and if you look up The American Music Association - he was one of the founding board members.

      OMG - I love Mahavishu and especially Paco - not familiar with Free Fall Lover - can't wait to check out.

      After almost two months of silliness I finally got my new social security card. I just to ooo and ahhh at it all day. It also meant a trip to our main office so hr could see the physical card and get a copy for file. Just so happened I am also wearing my green, skull covered dress. I think I like that office a little better sometimes, I got 5 compliments on my dress.

      Ronny.  He was like 30 years older.  Pro security contractor.  Marine. "Injustice collector".  Played semi pro football into his 40s  We rock n rolled together.  Hung out.  He took me to ball games.  Secured my gigs.  Lot of living advice.  We weren't a couple but it was something.  I knew he was gone before anyone told me. Everything went to hell without you. RIP  
    • Kathy2020
      Boho skirts and sandals do the the trick for me. Its not the most glamorous or sexy look, but for around the house or running quick errands, its so comfy and self-affirming! 🙂
    • Vidanjali
      Speaking of which, @Maddee be sure to take yours with food else you may experience nausea. Nonetheless, some folks cannot tolerate opioids at all regardless of whether they are taken with food. And @Jani is right on - don't wait til you're in hideous pain to take something. Rather take them preventatively according to a protocol as Vicky shared. 🙏
