    Haha, sorry for my second thread in a few minutes :p:

    Basically I can only dress like a 90s grungy teenager or middle aged woman. How does a 21 year old dress? I don't trust myself to buy things that won't look like their for teens

    Look through some high street shops and that should give you an idea. But to anser your question: mainly casualy and fashionable, not to mention being trendy!

    Pah this is so hard I'm trying to overhaul my wardrobe with about 300 pounds and I want to get all the right things because I usually just buy what's on sale so that I don't have to walk around naked but the clothes are never that nice :/

    Yeah basically! I don't have a clue about fashion.

    What shouldn't a 21 year old wear? Maybe that's easier?

    Depends on your style. 21's not exactly old so you can probably get away with 'teenage' clothes, as long as it's not like a 14 year old or something. You said 'grungy' so that suggests young teenager.

    But if you mean you're wanting to dress in a more 'grown-up' way, you could look at the way other people dress. Either people on the street or celebrities. Personally I always think Alexa Chung dresses nicely, she looks young but sophisticated I suppose. But that's just cos that's my style, you have to dress the way you want.

    Jeans should be a staple in everyone's wardrobe, no matter how old you are.

    Wear whatever you like OP. There aren't any boundaries when you're 21 - dress to suit your mood, your style or your shape, the choice is totally yours.

    Try shirts? As in, not boring school shirts, but casual short-sleeved shirts and denim (is that the right word?) trousers.

    Am only suggesting the above because I've been wearing a blue (casual... nothing I'd wear to work or school) shirt and white trousers and it looks professionally smart without screaming out "teenager!" I kinda understood why women spend so long in clothes stores when you do realise you can change your demeanour and how others perceive you simply by dressing well... :p:

    PS: I'm 21 too.
