Sounds like I'm joking (kinda am) but my fashion sense is POOR. It's the second term of me starting sixth form, and I've felt like from the get-go, my suits have been awful, I regret buying them, I stand out like a sore thumb, etc etc, my life's so hard etc. Lmao I know this is incredibly superficial but it's a genuine insecurity which makes me feel uncomfortable for the entire eight hours of school. Legitimately felt like everyone got the memo to be stylish as f*ck and I seemed to miss that.
Point being, I was wondering if anyone had any style tips for someone who lacks any sense of fashion, please and thank you. If not, then it was nice to get this off my chest...a chest which is engulfed in a disgusting red blazer pfft

Yeah, a lot of people are going for monochrome or navy blue. No idea what I was thinking with the red suit get up.
I think outfit matters a bit though, like shoulder-padded blazers are legit making me look like theresa may and I'd rather not pff

Suits to 6th Form??? A bit too much tbh...
Sorry.. IDK if you're male or Female.. Imma guess male..
Either wear jeans and shirt or tracksuits... Wear a mixture of light and dark shirts (make sure they fit right.. Not too tight or too loose).. I prefer wearing black as it enhances the aesthetic of anyone... I would wear a mixture of dark and light jeans... (depends on the shirt) and don't get ripped jeans LOL...
Don't need some £300 shoes or anything.. I wear £20 shoes which look similar and also have a similar comfort...
Make sure you stand straight and have a confident but not overconfident posture...
Workout to make the above more natural..
Never get a box haircut...
There are plenty of youtube videos on fashion for more advice...

Hahaa our school forces us to dress smart
The boys have to wear suits and ties
The girls have to wear smart trousers or skirts then shirts (the blazer is optional)
I think it's better tho so you don't have to stress about how you look
I still wear trainers tho and the teachers haven't clocked yet

honestly i’ve been having insecurities about my clothing choice but i’ve learned to just shrug it off. as long as you’re comfortable with what you’re wearing, go for it! i personally like wearing wide shirts and jeans or long-sleeves polo since they’re super comfy!

Ahah, problem is, I don't feel comfortable in it. Wide shirts and long polos sound ace though

Just go on Instagram and see what "influencers" with a similar look and build to you with lots of followers are wearing. Try and find British ones though as obviously different countries have their own fashions.
