#6 “How to dress gay?”

hey haha random one for you: any tips on how to dress more gay ?? i identify as a woman & am quite femme so that means I look super straight… I know I don’t have to look like a lesbian but it would definitelyhelp my dating life a bit😂😂

Thank you for getting in touch with Queeries!

First off, there is no one specific way to look ‘gay’, and the most important thing is to dress how you feel comfortable. Saying this, if you’d like to experiment some more with your wardrobe then have some fun with it!

Why not try looking for some items in charity shops or vintage shops? You’ll probably have to rummage a bit, but you can source some great finds here. Something such as a jacket or a shirt can really transform your whole look. Apps such as ‘depop’ and ‘vinted’ are great too for buying secondhand and vintage clothing and shoes.

Perhaps you could also try experimenting more with colours and patterns. Although previously a ‘fashion faux pas’, clashing patterns are making a comeback and can really help your uniqueness shine. Try out some different shapes than what you’re used to, such as maybe some flared trousers or padded shoulder blazers.

It’s also sometimes helpful to look at what other people are wearing. What celebrities dress how you would like to dress? Look at some of their fashion choices that you love and from there you can search for items to create a similar look.

The most important thing here is to have fun and dress yourself in a way that makes you feel the most confident and authentic.

I hope this has helped a little bit and we wish you the best of luck in your clothing adventures!
