When I was 15, I only wanted to wear plaid shirts of any color because I wanted to dress like an anime school girl. When I was younger than that, I used to be obcessed with plastic headbands because they looked like tiaras. Now, I'm just into whatever the heck looks good on me.
Over the years*
Plaid skirts* Y'all forgive me for these errors... it's still very early in the morning and I'm using still asleep XD
Back then before I was 15, I hadn't any taste or idea of proper fashion and just wore anything as long it was comfortable. I wore clothes that would make one barf (no thought given into it what so ever). Back then i was also physically unfit and lazy, i was quite the chubby one and I basically looked like a potato :'D my hair was so bad as well. I did not care for my appearance at all to be honest.
However, something happened during my teenage years where everything completely turned 180 degrees and i became the exact opposite. I became fitness, gym obsessed freak, i became so concerned and made such a big deal out of how my hair looks and what type of clothes i wore. I would only wear certain brands of clothing with only a certain combination of material, styles and colour. I own over 20 hair products (hairsprays, wax, gel, paste, gel wax, curlers... you name it).
I have a ridiculous sense and taste in fashion and hairstyle now and i actually think it may have developed into a proper sense. I would never go out if my hair was not perfectly styled, I would never even go out if my chinos that matched the outfit i was wearing wasn't done in the washing. That's how excessive it got.
I made sure my face was perfect, my body fat percentage low so that my face can be defined, i made sure my physique was up to standard (or at least was making sure), i made sure my hair was perfectly done and the clothes i wore were acceptable to look at. I have become narcissistic xD
Used to have short hair... eeuuuurrgh never fucking again lol. Long hair and beard (it's coming on) FTW!. Clothe wise, always used to wear T-shirts with stupid logos and colours, fleeces and jogging trousers and trainers lol, now jeans, brogues and and plain white T-shirts lol.
Plaid skirts lol. Sounds like a school girl. Anyway, well, for a long time in high school, I wore Hawaiian shirts. But I got out of that phase. I also tried growing my hair out but because I didn't want to sit with a hair straightener every day, I just cut it off. My hair when it's really long, is really annoying because of how wavy curly it is, so I tried straightening it but, it wasn't worth it everyday. Now I just put jeans and a hoodie on in the winter, and jeans and a t on in the summer. I live in a cold climate city
I'd wear really baggy clothes. Wait, I still do lol it hasn't changed much except I'm more willing to dress up now than before. I used to go to house parties in sweatpants and baggy t-shirts, which bugged my friends lol
I've always been a tomboy. The only time I looked different is when I couldn't dress myself, like when I was 5. I remember my 2nd foster mom wanting me to wear dresses and look super girly. And I had her buy me these Buzz Lightyear boots because I was obsessed with him, and I looked like a weirdo wearing "boy" boots with pink, frilly dresses haha.
I used to wear oversized tshirts because I was fat when I was little and I tried covering it. Then I went through a semi-goth phase, then I just kind of didn't care anymore and threw on whatever I liked and was comfortable, which is pretty much where I am today!
Throughout high school I wore mostly black--I wasn't goth or emo or whatever, it's just what I preferred. The past year or so I've branched out to different shades of grey and even white sometimes. I admire people who can work the whole bright colored clothing thing, but I can't bring myself to try it. Haha.
Borderline goth in middle school (I never put in enough effort for it to actually look good), bland teen movie extra in mid-late high school, girlier/prettier clothes in early college, and now I'm finding myself drawn back toward dark colors, but in a classier style, haha.
I think I'm slowly learning what I genuinely like, and how to make it look good.
When I was approaching puberty at around 10 or 11, I would not wear anything without sleeves to hide my bra straps since most of my classmates didn't wear bras then. Then at around 13-15, I got so obsessed with ripped jeans and kilts. Now I go scrounging for any oversized shirt I could find and customizing them to my own taste.
My look has changed because finally i know what suits me most. I know my body. Before i was like trying things. Did not know what looks good on me. I wore ridicilousness but I am happy that made me find my style <3
