Seeking: international visual guides of fashion subcultures

Where can I find more visual glossaries of international fashion subcultures, particularly the ones that are lesser-known or more specific? They'll have photos or video of the style, some background on what the style is about and where it's from, and some description of key elements. Some examples of what I'm after are Refinery29's Style out There playlist, this guide to Japanese fashion, and this list of men's fashion.

I want to dress like an adult, but I'm paralyzed by the idea of spending

I've recently started working in a new office where everybody dresses quite well. Prior to this, I was in full-time student mode, so I never cared about what I wore. I want to start looking more put-together. It shouldn't be this difficult to buy about 5-6 basics to update my office wardrobe, but I am SO. PARALYZED. at the idea of having to spend money on more than 1-2 items at a time. I waste hours and hours looking at clothes online and never buy a single item. This needs to stop. [more inside]

What will I do with you, pink and blue?

The advice "The generally accepted rule is pink for the boys, and blue for the girls" can be found quoted many, many places online (all clearly originating from one ur-source), attributed either to the Ladies Home Journal in 1918 or Earnshaw's Infants Department (invariably identified as "a trade publication"). Which was it? Was it, in fact, either? [more inside]

Where can I buy affordable fashion and/or accessories while in Milan?

I'm staying in Milan until Tuesday evening, and I'd like to pick up something for a close friend's birthday while I'm here. I can't spend a huge amount of money (maybe $100-$150 max), but I'd love to get her something unique from Milan. She's kind of a fashionista, and she tends to have an Anthropologie-esque style. I'd be looking for something like a blouse, dress, unique accessory, or personal product. Where should I go? Any specific suggestions and/or products you can recommend? Thanks!

Remember those sheer, layered dresses from the late 90s?

Around 1996 I bought a dress from a mall store (Express or similar). It was short-sleeved, ankle-length, comprised of two or more layers of sheer, silky, solid-colored pastel fabric, and the style was that you would knot or tie up the top layer to reveal some of the bottom layer underneath. I can't seem to find a picture of it anywhere online - can anyone find an image of one of these dresses?

Shirts should not be see through.

I like cheap tshirts. When they get ruined during lab work (tiny holes seem unavoidable!) Or playing with my toddler, I am not sad. But my standard cheap tshirt haunts (Target/Khols) have predominantly see through cute tshirts. Why are basic v neck shirts see through now??? Any tips on stores/brands where one can still find a basic tshirt that doesn't reveal bra color?

Dressing (and knitting) for success

I'm in the very early stages of researching and writing a knitting project guide. What books can you recommend on the topic of learning to dress well? I'm looking specifically for books that help people of either gender plan, and possibly even make, a functional, flattering, stylish wardrobe. I have asked a very similar question of AskMe before, but that was 10(!!!) years ago and so many more style guides have come out since then.
