“As a 25 year old, 5’3″ AFAB genderqueer person, with a face that apparently screams ‘possibly a 14 year old unaccompanied minor in this airport??’, it’s important that I look professional enough (especially when I’m teaching) to convey some authority. Any advice you’ve got to help me achieve my goal of being the queer professor crush of everyone’s dreams?”
“The “dapper” butch looks I find when I try to google outfit inspiration don’t really fit my personality. I prefer an edgier, street style-esque sort of look, and I want to carry some of that style over into my workwear.”
This week we find fits for someone looking for a “style reset” that lets them embrace their punk and grunge roots while also not being mistaken for a teenage boy anymore!
“I’m a financial planner specifically serving queer, trans, and polyamorous individuals and families, so I need to dress business-y, but I also want to look queer. I spent the first 20-something years of my life just wearing band t-shirts and chucks, and I would really love to feel more put-together and intentional with my fashion than that.”
Warm and handsome outfit ideas for those still too chilly nights.
“Loving women and loving the land are the two things I told myself I would never do, and somehow, they got all tangled up in each other.”
Once again Sara Ramirez as Kat Sandoval has overwhelmed us. I’m here to help you steal her style.
Wildfang’s latest venture is a collaboration with LA brand Lucca Couture on a set of tailored suiting. Following the lead of fashionable #galpals Cara Delevigne & Kirsten Stewart, suiting and matching sets are back in vogue for the non-business, strictly non-dapper set. Hell, I want a suit (and I never thought I would).
“Who are these men noticing me? Who are these men giving me the long, soft stare, eyes holding mine like they got something for me, something they can’t talk about, something only eyes can pass along. Who are these men whispering ‘hi, papi’ to me? I don’t think I look more male today than I did yesterday.”
The term “brunch style” does not automatically imply a specific level of formality. My suggestions would depend on the occasion (Meet the parents brunch? Wedding brunch? Date brunch? Hungover with your friends brunch? Autostraddler meet-up brunch? Hip-hop party brunch?) and the venue (Five star restaurant? Pub? Trendy café?).
Whether you are considering binding for yourself, have been binding for years but want to learn more about binder brands and health, or want to prepare to support your friends and loved ones, you’ve come to the right place.
4. You were so much prettier with long hair.
Make a note on the back of your hand or the back of your girlfriend’s hand or write this on your cat for all I care: Jogger pants. Jogger pants are the future.
“When the doctor said that such and such a treatment was linked to health problems later in life, I didn’t even blink. I’ll hit 50 and keel over? Fine, I don’t care, get rid of these fucking pimples.”
This week Gabby taught us everything she learned while wearing leggings. But, like, she looked so hot doing it.
Mondays are really hard so let’s all take a break and enjoy the glorious gift that is The 100 Most Stylish dapperQs.
Okay, I’ll say it: I have trouble making butch friends. Actually, I have trouble feeling like I am a part of the butch community, period.
Hair is a part of my queer ritual.
There is something strange about the street harassment I receive as a butch in that it is often terrifying and extremely triggering, but something about it makes me feel justified. I am glad these men see me as a threat.
Camp is family, after all.
