Don't want to dress like a kid, but need some serious fashion advice. Let's assume I have a few pairs of jeans and some tshirts and that is my entire wardrobe. And a pair of tiger's eye stud earrings as my only accessory, not counting the plain watches I use at work. Where do I go from here?

Also what should a white girl with long, straight blonde hair do with it? her hair.

Because if you're just getting started with fashion most people here can't be bothered to help you out with basic questions that can be searched up with google.

People on reddit will be more inclined to help you since they want their imaginary points.

Train your eye, look at countless pictures for inspiration. Personal style takes time to develop. In the meantime, dress basic. I hate the hugbox attitude, but http://www.reddit.com/r/femalefashionadvice/search?q=mtf&restrict_sr=on would be a good resource.

it doesnt matter how on point your clothes are, if you arent at an attractive weight, youll never be /fa/
also, dont buy a lot of clothes at once. only buy a few things at a time. and make sure its versatile stuff you can incorporate into plenty of fits, especially in the beginning.
do some weight lifting so you have muscle definition, but dont go overboard, obviously. and dont do too much shoulders if your already worried about shoulders.

good advice. what would you recommend? i'm honestly used to tshirts and jeans. feel weird about wearing things that aren't pants. like skirts wtf.

so a decent pair of pants and a top that looks okay together? something casual. also, what should i be doing with my hair when i need it up for work? i've just been throwing it in a ponytail and all the other girls do these crazy things with weird accessories and stuff. what can i do that would be somewhat fashion without being hard or look like i'm trying too much?

Raglan sleeves and ponchos might help a bit with making your shoulders seem smaller. Basically avoid shoulder seams when possible.

just buy some shirts and pants then.

slim fit pants. chinos, jeans, joggers, whatever.
just make sure they are on the slim side.
check the sticky for basic color pallets, and make sure they all match.
do whatever for socks, if you like colorful or whatever, but no white socks.
leather sneakers like CPs or something will look good but not try hard. personally i love when girls wear leather shoes.
get a basic plimsoll as well, like the classic vans.

Some essential oils can be bad for your skin and are much more scented than perfumes. You can try an EDT if you're looking for something lighter. scent isn't necessarily a dealbreaker but we do focus a lot on the thoughts/emotions/identity we can channel through scent on this board. One transitioning poster often asked what feminine-smelling deodorant she could use instead of taking the plunge of wearing feminine fragrance. There are also numerous unisex scents that could mix really well with your skin chemistry and personality.

A long time ago I had made an infographic of items an adult woman should collect throughout her life, for a transitioning MtF as well. I'll see if I can find it.

If you can, see if you can get fitted for a proper bra. They can be expensive but a well fitting bra will really change the way clothes fit your body and perhaps the way you feel about yourself.

Reddit's /r/abrathatfits is a good resource for measuring yourself and finding sizes and bras that work for your breast shape. eBay, Amazon and Bratabase are good places to look for bras if you wear a rarer size.

Lies. The only time my allergies kick in (outside of poison ivy or rotted animal(long story)) is with perfume. Old ladies are the worst, but college aged children are a close second. Too much perfume is tacky and leads some to believe that you must fart constantly or eat like shit. I don't use shampoo any more, but I'll still wash myself with a bit of strawberry scented product that men and women seem to love the scent of.

Op, major tip for you. If you don't want to destroy your knees trying to train yourself out of heel striking, just try walking long distances. Look up proper posture and heel striking. You want to use the balls and side of your foot. Do at least 5 miles a day at your own pace until you have it down. Your leg muscles and tendons will feel weird at first because our generation has such shitty posture that even our legs and footfalls are fucked up.

Just fixing your posture will make you look twice as confident, and even trick your brain into believing you're a boss (look up posture studies cuz they be all kinds of interdasting). BUT! SUPER SECRET TO BLOW YOUR MIND. You can get an amazing ass JUST by squeezing your glutes while walking ANYWHERE. Start doing this once you have your posture down pat, and you'll have glorious hips and a lush ass. Don't be afraid to spread your shoulders for purpose posture. My shoulders are wide as the grand Canyon and ain't no body give two shits, and I do barbell weight training three times a week.

Good luck, lady friend. I wear all kinds of stupid bs like Aztec tiger head sweaters in a field of stars or printalloverme vaporwave tees and get nothing but compliments because my posture says I own it.
