    Default Dress an NT!

    Let's face it, not all NTs are the most stylish people ever. For all you fashion experts (like you xNFJs), I would like opinions on how to pick out clothing for my shape (larger chest, slimmer waist, cool skin tone).

    I normally dress in jeans and a super nerdy tee shirt, band tee shirt, button down shirt, etc. But I want to be a little more stylin'.

    I am good at dressing other people, but not so much myself

    Anymore details, I can provide.



    [Add]: Alternatively, fellow forum members, you can provide advice on how us NTs, who sometimes have a fashion handicap equivalent to the physical one of Hawking hahaha, can dress smarter, nicer, whatever.
    Excuse me, but does this smell like chloroform to you?

    probably the best thing i can help you with is colours...i'd have to leave the rest up to everyone else.

    a lot of people use what are called seasonal colour palettes, of which there are 4: spring, summer, autumn, winter. you can read more about finding out which one you are here: Seasonal Color Analysis | How to Find Your Best Colors with a Free Color Analysis Chart

    but since you know you have a cool skin tone, you are either a summer or a winter.

    Summer Color Analysis | Your Personal Summer Color Palette through Seasonal Color Analysis
    Winter Color Analysis | Personal Winter Color Palette through Seasonal Color Analysis

    check out both of these pages and see which one sounds more like you. you can ignore the stuff like "light summer" or whatever for now, it's not really that important and i don't really go by that. If you aren't totally sure feel free to post a picture and i'll figure it out for you

    Season Color Analysis | Spring Summer Autumn Winter
    this link has colour charts for each corresponding palette, so it'll give you a good visual idea of the colours you should stick too, especially since they can be a little confusing...for example, I'm a summer, and i was told that i should stick to reds that have "a blue undertone". I was like wtf does that mean? But once i saw the charts and started trying on more colours that actually worked for me, i got the hang of it.

    so that's what i have to offer. Good luck!^^

    Hopefully it does help!

    Ooo, lucky you, you'll have a nice range of colours to work with. Keep in mind that these are the colours that you should put near your face, if you want to wear orange shoes then go for it!

    Fun fact: you have the only palette that should wear "pure white" or "pure black" around your face^^

    no idea really how to dress with a larger chest...but i think proportion balance is important...so maybe tops that add a bit of visual weight to the arms/shoulders...like lil cap sleeves or 3/4 length rather than strapless...fitted in the waist with an a-line skirt or jeans that fit all nice and snug in your ass but have a have a bit of flair or boot cut to even out the proportion.

    Agh, maybe I will get a breast reduction and get that model body! (Albeit a short one).

    What exactly is an A line skirt?

    Okay.

    You know what? This might help a little. I look really good in super purples, reds, all black, and white. Also orange, but more like burnt orange. Not hunter orange.

    What does that cause me to fall under?

    Okay, I am having a little trouble figuring out the body type thing.

    My legs are sort of short, but I am not heavy bottomed. I am like, vertical, with breasts. I don't think it is my ribcage that is wide.
