hey, so i am transgender male to female and just want to ask a few questions. this applies mostly to teenage girls between around 14-18.

So I'm just wanting to know general do's and dont's when it comes to fashion, such as what to wear with what and what should be avoided etc. such as jeans with certain types of footwear and tops which would all look good together. link to online sites if you wish. (I am not too keen on dresses)

Secondly, where do you girls buy your clothes from, and where would you say the cheapest place is?

Thanks in advance.

I watch bestdressed on youtube. Start with her closet essentials video. Go through instagram profiles of fashion influencers and or celebrities and see what you like. Check out thrift stores and I heard that forever 21 is really cheap in the west so if that's where you're from..
Hope I helped

Yeah. I've been looking around. Quite cheap. However I'm at the beginning of everything, and don't look anything like a female - and people my age can be really judgemental and horrible - of any age actually. Any ideas of how to go about this and still feel comfortable?

I love “bestdressed”! I used to have zero style but now I just copy her and I look super fashionable haha

I get my stuff from H&M but mostly I buy second hand using depop or just second hand stores. It’s better for the environment and you can find really cool stuff there

I get most of my clothes from primark, h&m and charity shops. I'm not particularly into fashion so stick with very plain clothes, the occasional patterns and check shirts. You mention you aren't comfortable with dresses but maybe for summer you can try maxi skirts as they go with a lot of different tops.

Went to H&M this week, there's quite a lot of fashionable stuff but really expensive in the east so yeah. How should one buy nice clothes since there's really *****y stuff in the sales, no thrift stores and really expensive stores!? Ugh!!

Oh haha im from Germany and here it’s apparently different. I get really cool clothes off depop for cheap (try out the app!) and H&M isn’t too expensive either. But like I said, I mostly buy second hand.

But it’s also important to not buy clothes too cheap and not buy too many, because then you’re supporting really bad work conditions
