How does fashion work, exactly? >.>
I was musing on my facebook the other day:
Ok here’s the plan: Someone go into the future and bring me a history book about early 21st-century fashion trends, one of the good ones with photos and detailed descriptions about how clothing worked. Then I’ll be able to figure out wtf to wear — it’ll be just like costuming >.>
Then I figured well, okay, people sometimes do retro-inspired looks, right? So maybe I can just, I don’t know… dress in almost-cosplay all the time if I pick my inspirations carefully?
Like, okay, say I use Tiana:
So can I just use, like… a yellow dress:
With a green cardigan and it’ll look okay? Like, you can wear yellow and green together like that? Does it need to be a darker yellow though? Does it have to be a long cardigan or can a shorter one work:
Or in keeping with the Disney theme, let’s look at Belle:
Can I invert the layer order and do a blue sundress:
With a white cardigan:
I just want a list of rules I can follow >.> oh yeah, and I’d like to not spend $80 on a single outfit, which is why I haven’t gone ahead and bought any of this stuff yet. But I’m beginning to think this plan might work! Now to print out pictures of like, every cartoon character ever and head to the local Wal-mart….
