    Default Your style, as presented in picture form

    Just for fun, see if you can present your "personal style" in pictorial form, drawing from your various fashion lodestars.

    These photos kinda reflect what I've aimed for in my wardrobe. A lot of linen in the warmer months, sweaters aplenty in the colder months:

    Pretty much my personal style at my company on a daily basis for decades, and now that I am retired, the same style when called in for the occasional executive board meeting for important decisions.

    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.

    Those shoes aren't bad; yours must be really nice. What are they like? I like Cook.bot’s shoes, too. Guess I like shoes.

    But I’m not blonde:

    My only regrets in life are the people I haven't stood up for,

    Ha— I have a dress pretty much identical to this one. And animal prints are perfect for you— love those shoes.

    There was a thread just like this one a couple years ago, and Manny from Rogue Perfumery definitely won the leopard-print shoe category, men's division:

    Shemelimelle, I do admire your style! You're really beautiful and rock it so well. My approach and style on jewellery is very similar though - the more, the better! I love leather, brass and bronze the most though.

    Kotori, you must look lovely, too. Oh, but I have seen your photos in Chicago meet-up thread, and you do look super lovely indeed!

    I agree the shoes are nice. I tend to have concerns with the overall look, so I would agree there, and I think the shout-outs from Cook.bot and Kotori are super sweet and generous. Part of the problem lies in the under-sized clothing. It looks like his intention was to fit into these clothes, and it's not quite working, and he's not feeling good about himself or life in general. This is a case with a quick fix - the next size up.

    It's really just Schreiber's pants, which are slim-fit in that trendy Aughts way. They do look uncomfortable!

    Indeed, his jacket seems to be cramping his sizeable shoulders, and I’m sure I’d i were him, that would make me pretty upset. Now as for you, I suppose you assume your avatar is enough?

    Lovely!

    And Brooks, McQueen had some classic looks. I'll never be that cool (who of us will?) but that's the same kind of style that I aspire to.

    Nobody's as cool as McQueen!

    Thankfully, his style is classic enough to work well for other personalities.

    Lol feel like I'm tooting my own horn but yeah I ensure better fit. Shoes are decent enough, though the tight ankle cut does no justice to them (personal taste) like em a little wider so they fall nicely over the shoe

    Just a few of my style inspirations. I'm not quite there yet (at least at their level), but I'm getting there (minus the cigar).

    I must agree with Mr. Prince here. The whole style works very well on you. I especially love the sunglasses, they add a bit of mystery.

    I dont go for all that celeb GQ type look. I think it gets tiring and a bit affected.

    I just wear what I like that I liked a long time ago to now. Fedora hats and tank tops and skinny jeans (really low cut , low armhole, racer back type tanks, and really painted on skinny jeans).
    I mean, the combo sounds really bad, but , I think it works for me. All my clothing articles are cheap. I only splurge on accessories like hats, watches, eyewear, fragrances..etc.

    You'll see pics of me in my profile

    I might have guessed retro-chic black from your avatar

    My style varies by occasion. I’m equally comfortable in hiking boots, or formal wear. Motorcycle apparel is a regular feature in my off-duty wardrobe; function, rather than fashion, but I’m as like to be in leather or Kevlar as anything else, when not at work.

    Day-to-day, I guess my style runs fairly classic. Simple basics, but tailored. Pearls and perfume are staples, and I’m rarely without both.

    Yes, even on the bike!
