Help me, Metafi-ites! My outfits are utterly plain, and I'm looking for tips on how to become more stylish while flattering my tall figure. I don't know much about what's in or what you have to worry about when you're putting an outfit together since I get overwhelmed with all the choices and information out there. Trying to have more fun with clothing being a young n' single grad student! My daily outfit consists of a solid color cotton or button down shirt, black or khaki shorts/capris/jeans, and flip flops or ballet flats. Lather, rinse, repeat.
Here are my three constraints:
1) Budget. I don't have much to spend. I typically shop at TJ Maxx and Marshalls, and Target/Gap and J Crew sales and outlet stores.
2) Funky measurements. I'm 6' tall with a long inseam and pear shaped figure. Size 6/8, 34" inseam, and have broad shoulders, flat stomach/small waist, wide hips and a proportionally large booty n' thighs. Lately all the tees I've tried on in stores have looked too long on me, but I'm not sure how long a shirt is supposed to look...
3) Keepin' it classy. Nothing too flashy or revealing - gotta look professional!
Fashion tips to flatter the amazonian figure, stores to shop at, wardrobe staples, little tricks for jazzing up/combining the same pieces/adding cuteness are all welcome. Please and thank you!
