@Stansmith Why is sp so boring? I don't see how sp would just be about functionality... I think core type would have much influence here. But people always seem to imagine sp in terms of being an e6 or e1 or something....
To me, sp dress is about autonomy. It's about personal identity & how emotionally comfortable you are with a visual translation of it. For some sp types, that might mean no fuss, because they generally see themselves as utilitarian. But as a 4 core or just as ME, I can't stand plainness. I feel dead, disconnected from my inner "spirit", so there's an emotional discomfort that far outweighs any possible physical discomfort. Functionality is the least of my concerns in my dress. Whatever expression I do with my dress is more about not being repressed than actively seeking to communicate to people, although I think part of me does make it a passive voice (I may let it speak for me, being a quiet person). It's asserting the ownership over my physical self.
I'd be sx/so based on the ideas of sp from others here.... However, I get a lot of compliments for being creative & risk-taking without being tacky. I notice a lot of the sx types cited veer into "tacky" or "tasteless". I'm not as sleek or timeless as an so might be either, though. I'm more "dress to express" than "dress to impress". But considering I can live under a rock & not watch TV or know who many new celebrities are, I do seem to know how fashion is evolving (even before it actually manifests), more as part of a cultural zeitgeist & sense of what almost "logically" will emerge next, rather than gathering literal info on the matter. I have more interest in avant garde or street style than famous people too, and counter-cultures & sub-cultures are rather fascinating as far the distinct looks they produce.

I'm glad that you agree with me about how Sx doms generally dress. Also, I think that you are correct and I believe that So doms do tend to follow the current fashion trends. I would also like to add that I believe that the so/sx people generally tend to follow the more "loud" fashion trends like Will Smith did in "Fresh Prince" for example, and the so/sp people tend to follow the more plain fashion trends.
Yeah it makes sense that you would dress like that. I've noticed that 4w5's tend to have a very unique style of dress and so do a lot of sx/sp. If you combine them both together, then you basically have a Tim Burton mother fucker on your hands.
Eh, at least personally, I am usually fairly put-off by most celebrity trends. They're often bizarre, impractical, unappealing, and occasionally celebrities look like they fell out of a dumpster, which is sort of mind-boggling considering the amount of resources they tend to have. IMO many celebrity trends don't jibe well with so-harmony. There is a lot of sx going on in Hollywood. But yes, probably lots of so-doms on tumblr and pinterest.
What I notice with sx, so, and sp is that each has a certain "flavor". Sx tends to have some edge, so has more softness, and I agree that sp has utility - I also tend to see out of sp more "classic" styles. But I think it's also in how clothes are worn, not just what they are.
sx/sp 9 ISTP brother tends to dress preppy/casual/sleek. He's slender and muscular, and is usually in a close-fitting v-neck t-shirt, sometimes a button-down over that, classic khakis and boat shoes. Corduroys in the winter.
sx/so 6? INFP? that I know at work wears brightly-colored summer dresses most of the time, with lots of jewelry and funky shoes, light makeup.
sx/so 6 ENFJ that I know at work wears tight-fitting yoga pants or close-cut jeans and tight-fitting feminine cut t-shirt tops, sometimes smoky eye makeup.
sx/so 7 ENFP? aunt is a huge fashionista and wears all sorts of Prada and Dior and tight dresses and slim pants and animal prints and crazy heels, makeup.
sx/sp? 9? ESFP? friend from school has tons of colorful tattoos and wears tight-fitting jeans, tops, and dresses (she's a bartender), with dark eyeliner and bold lips.
It seems like sx/so style is more flashy and sx/sp is more dark/edgy...
Living in NYC you see a pretty diverse range of outfits. Most hypebeasts (the stereotypical ones who look uncomfortable in what they're wearing) I see seem like So/Sx's.
1. When did I ever say anything about people that dress flamboyantly being correlated with feelers exclusively? I never said that.
2. No Lady X, wanting to stand out like a sore thumb through your dress code is not like most women. It is an sx dom thing. Wanting to look sexy through your style of dress is normal for a woman though.
this is more So/Sx imo (or even a more gregarious Sp/Sx)
some styles of dress I would find appealing
various ethic garb is also a guilty pleasure
