Do you have a dressing style that is ALL you?

Link to comment

I don't think I do. Of course, I'm just 10 months into developing a style...my style...and I take great joy in trying different styles. I do, though, try to remember my age. But, I find much joy in filling out a wardrobe that reflects my style and personality. What is it? I don't know, yet, but I love working to find it.

I don't think so.  I like clothes that are pretty and colourful.  If a man wouldn't be caught dead wearing it, I'm interested. 


But "all me"?  I don't know.  I am guided in my clothing choices by my "fashion advisor" (my wife) and my sense of what my mother might have worn.

This is SO me, too. I love bright colors, flowers, butterflies, pinks, reds, yellows, greens....... And, geometric shapes and patterns.

I like pastels, but I dress androgynous, or 'tomboyish'. 100% off the women's rack, but not very elegant. 


I'll wear a revealing tank or Camis over a push-up bra. Very very short-shorts whenever possible. 

Stockings all the time, and HeyDude shoes. 

My hair is always styled, and I mostly keep makeup down to a minimum. 


I can't call it my own because it's how many of the girls in my community dress. I'm just not dressing my age is all.

Certainly nothing that traditional folks might expect from a member of the elderly crowd. I love skorts in warm weather, as well as short shorts. Leggings are my go-to in the cooler weather. Colorful - I love shades of pink, light to dark, and lavender. Tops will be somewhat longer and looser, v- or scoop necks or tunics.

I'm a little odd in my clothing choices.  

I do wear dresses or skirts almost exclusively, almost everything at least below the knee.  And I layer them unless it's just too hot.  I usually wear a light slip or shift as an under layer, then either a dress or skirt and a top of some sort.  If it's cold I work in more layers - long sleeves, sweater, etc.  Sometimes I'll add another layer of a jumper or a "split apron" (has a front and back but the sides are only tied together - it does add another layer though).  

I might wear leggings under this for warmth, or more often thigh-high stockings.  (love my thigh-highs)

In cold weather I might cover my hair/wig with a kerchief - babushka style, keeps the ears warm.  And shawls, I love them.  Maybe I'm a cottagecore wannabe.

Today it was fairly warm.  I wore a bra and half-slip under a short sleeved dress, with a sweater till it warmed up.  Some nice Swedish clogs for the feets.

 I spent the morning at a coffeeshop like this.  I suppose I'm just the local weirdo.

I'll never be a fashion icon.  I guess I'm kinda like a throwback to another era.  But oddly enough, I feel comfortable like this.

I think that is a pretty popular and easy style.  Band t-shirts are always in fashion, and leather too!


My style of dress is more like a style of undress.  😏  In warm weather, I wear as little as possible, so its mostly shorts and grass sandals.  I only bother with a shirt of any sort if I'm going someplace that makes you wear a shirt.  And I haven't worn a shirt at all since I got my nipples pierced recently.  My shorts are either the small cotton ones, or longer basketball shorts.  Most of the time, I have an androgynous version of the "teenage boy in the summer" look.

      @Jamielynn One factor in breast growth is body type and amount of body fat.  The modern western ideal of "slender but with large breasts" seems to be fairly unusual in nature.  The women in my life (just a sample) tend to follow the pattern of "slender = smaller breasts and thicker = larger breasts."     Yes, decrease testosterone and increase estrogen will yield secondary sex characteristics.  Within limitations.  Two of my friends are MtF, and both have HRT.  Even with HRT, neither has large breasts.... a full A-cup or small B-cup at most.  Both are fairly slender and physically active.  If they wanted something larger, they'd likely have to look at augmentation.

      I do too.  Actually, husband's parents used to have FOX on the TV constantly in their home until a couple of years ago.  But viewers are decreasing overall as people cut the cord on expensive cable services.  Something is just unhealthy about consuming that much media, no matter the source.  Remember the days when "news" was something that came on for a half hour at 6pm?  Or arrived in a rolled-up paper on the driveway on Sunday and Wednesday?

      OK, I'm confused.  I'm no scholar, but isn't a "whole" supposed to be 100%?  Yet 82% are Democrats and 46% are Republicans?  Unless I'm missing something, that's more than 100%.... are people double registered or something?   It seems like a lot of studies go for 1000 respondents.  I guess its just a nice, round number?  But for a state as big as CA, its a pretty small sample size.  And 1000 people from San Fransisco will give very different results than 1000 people from Northern CA smaller towns.  It would be interesting to know the polling locations they used, but I suspect that the study is basically worthless due to its sample size and limitations.

      Lots of folks have been feeling that way for quite a while, and for different reasons.  The trick is... become OK with that idea.    After all, the Founding Fathers were outlaws in the eyes of the British crown.  There's frequently a difference between "right" and "legal."  There's lots of things that are legal, but not right.  And lots of things that are right, but not legal.  According to Jefferson, "When injustice becomes law, resistance becomes duty."  The day the system makes me an outlaw, I'll be in good company.

      Thank you EasyE!  I have been researching this for years and have lots of links, but just google transgender brain and you will see lots of information (some conflicting) but concentrate on Bed Nucleus. This area of the brain is structured to sense what is happening around you and send signals to the rest of the brain. It was originally only thought to control anxiety, and the fight or flight reflex, but it has been found to be sexually dimorphic in structure, and is likely the centre of gender identity. In this case (still being researched) the signals it sends to the rest of the brain would be dysphoria. (if/when they can prove this it should mean GI and Dysphoria are not mental.) There is no way to change the Bed Nucleus atm, so 'it isn't going away'!   You need to read a number of papers as each of them has parts of the story, and it is still being developed.   Hugs,   Allie

      One of the reasons the far right is pushing so hard right now. The kids are alright, so time is short for instilling sweeping “conservative” and authoritarian dogma. 
    • EasyE
      I would love to know more about this. Do you have links where we can read more, Allie? I hear so many people (including myself) saying to folks around them "this isn't going to go away" (even though others don't understand this) ... I feel that too. It would be nice to know a little more why. Thanks!!! And thanks for all you do to keep us so well informed!

      2%, even better! That is over 6.7 million Americans and over 160.2 million people worldwide who are trans. No small numbers! We are everywhere.
    • AllieJ
      There hasn't been any accurate census of the trans population, and it would be difficult given the varieties under the trans umbrella. Governments grossly under represent trans numbers so they don't have to provide funding, but in countries where trans people are traditionally accepted the populations are usually estimated around 2%. This is almost all represented by trans feminine people, and doesn't include non binary. As most trans people either haven't figured out they are trans, or are in hiding, accurate numbers are likely never to be known. About 5% of youth in the US have claimed to be gender diverse, and I have read papers which forecast between 5 and 8% of the worlds population could be gender diverse.    I feel most comfortable with the 2% number as a minimum of people who will take some affirming action, but do feel the total number would be much higher.   Hugs,   Allie

      What an amazing story, @EmilyLouise48. You are blessed to have that support on your life. Thank you for sharing. 
    • emeraldmountain2
      1% sounds small, but it's significant. One study estimates the number trans and nonbinary Americans at 1.6%, which is over 5 million people! We are numerous, we are everywhere, and we are strong.
    • Vidanjali
      You might consider wearing a wide cloth headband or turban headband to feminize your look while your brushed back hair grows out. You can find lots of different patterns like these for example.
    • KatieSC
      Well, our percentage of the population is around 1%. We could be the 2nd set of one percenters in the country...All this mayhem about our very existence.
