When did we last have a nanchette thread?
>>10498150This is cool, I feel like girls nowadays don’t really have this haircut anymore
>>10498116Is 34 too old to wear nanchatte?
>>10498872no, but it's too old to give a shit.
>>10498872I think it's not too different from people who continue to wear their college logo sweatshirts and caps after they have graduated.
>>10498872No, but.I have repeatedly told people here to just wear what they want and what makes them happy. And I think it's still true. I didn't really get into nanchatte until I was 25, and then really ramped up my wardrobe at 29. But I just had my second kid and gained a bunch of weight and now all these insecurities are actually starting to get to me. For now none of my clothes fit me but as I lose weight over the next 6-12 months, what then? Where do I wear it, and what point should I I care about normies think? The ideal answer should be "never" but it still bothers me. I guess one solution would be to pick more mature looking styles or integrate nanchatte pieces in with more normie clothes. I think I have plenty more use left out of my nanchatte things. Sorry for the blog there. To kinda bring it back and really answer your question, I think that depends entirely on you. Yes it is a youthful style but I think you can adapt it in a way that suits your personal style, your body, and your face (as applicable). If you like the clothes I think you should go ahead and buy them. Be a kawaii old lady if need be, who cares.
>>10499402>>10499363>>10498872nanchatte is really only one degree away from western preppy style if you're feeling self conscious about your age, instead of sailor collars and short pleated skirts go for things like blazers and cardigans and longer plaid skirts, or even plaid pants.
>>10499429Agree with you, excellent advice
small dump incoming
>>10499402>>10499402I would just avoid super mini skirts and focus more work casual oriented blazers and jacketskeep things fitted but not tight, avoid cheap looking items, and you shouldn't run into any issuespic related for general ideas for shape and sillouettes, obviously these aren't quite "nanchatte", so jazz it up in the details and accessories loose sweater vests in particular are coming in on the normie trends for winter there are was to make nanchatte more "mature" looking without throwing it out entirely
>>10499429I find that just skipping the little bow tie is more or less enough most of the time
>>10498116>do you like schoolgirls?no (yes)
>>10501519Sauce on the top right vest? That's so cute
Do you think navy loafers could work? Or should I just stick to black, brown, burgundy?
>>10504774Why wouldn't they? I have a pair and wear them all the time. If you wear burgundy, navy is a lot easier to coordinate.
>>10498116Not sure why everyone wants to dress up in the uniforms of literal children. Its kind of weird. OTT sweet is more respectable than this
>>10504862Its about the themes and youthful spirit, it doesn't have anything to do with wanting to look like a child.
Stop replying to bait. Why does CGL fall for this every time.
>>10504814OK, good to know. I was just wondering 'cause I only really see black and brown. Burgundy's not too hard either, it's almost brown.
>>10504862Bro who cares? I've never gotten any weird gross comments while wearing nanchette, meanwhile I've had gross ass old men ask me if I'm looking for a daddy while wearing AP. So you can fuck off with your normie attitude towards cute clothing.
I don't know if you've all seen this already, but I think this DoCoMo promo video really captured the nostalgia aspect of nanchatte https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1ykdpG0VsX0&ab_channel=oricon
>>10504960Its important to never wear childish things so that you don't present an lgdd image. Its literally one step away from schoolgirl lgdd
>>10504862Please go back to Twitter.
>>10505091You mean ddlg? Also, no fucks given honestly. I'm into ddlg anyway. At least my bf is my age so it's not too sus. It was probably way more obvious when I was seeing dudes older than my dad.
>>10505138This is cute, I love that her bag straps are also red. Is there a brand that does changable bag straps?
>>10504862>OTT sweet is more respectable than thisAs someone who actually likes OTT sweet, you are completely wrong about that.>>10505738Fucking barf.
>>10505749Stay mad. I'm not open about my kink off anon so nobody would ever know, unless they somehow found my sex work socials and recognized me/my room and tied it to my EGL socials. Which is how it should be. The kinksters that tie the fashion and their kink together, openly, and talk about their kink off anon in spaces where minors could be present, that's barf material and just makes us all (kinksters and lolitas) look bad.
>>10505757no1curr. keep your blogpost kinkshit out of the nanchatte thread.
I always love it when the ribbons have cute designs.
>>10505091honestly who gives a shit? like damn almost every thread is inescapable from the "don't do ddlg" shit. i am once again asking... who genuinely gives this much of a fuck about it? Its a damn kink. Okay. So what? As long as the people are of age, who gives a single fuck whether it presents that kind of image?damn. mind your own business. let people wear their damn clothes. It doesnt fucking matter is2g i'm tired of ddlg being brought up in so many damn threads y'all asses are more focused on it than actual littles holy shit
Does anyone have any recs for the cute bow ties, swearters/coats and socks?I've been trying to find black loose socks in 180CM forever. I can find them in up to 120 but only white ones go up to 180.
>>10507225What kind of price range are you looking at? The Japanese brands like eastboy, conomi, lucypop, kuri-ori have nice things, but would be pricier than most of the Taobao brands!
>>10507267Do you have examples of good Taobao brands? NTAYRT but I want to buy a good quality winter seifuku but a lot look cheap but I'm not willing to spent £200
>>10507267Looking for any price range between high and low. So Both japanese brands and taobao. No real price range in mind, wanna get a good look at what is available first.
>>10505827Same here, I always feel awkward mixing my tie and skirt designs though, even seeing how good it looks on others.
>>10507280>>10507291梗豆KYOUKO制服馆 is a fairly good store to start with on Taobao. Their prices are reasonable and they have a pretty big range from western to sailor styles. They also have an ongoing collaboration with Sanrio if you're into that.One thing to note when buying from Taobao is to check whether the item is "in stock" or on preorder. If it's on preorder the price could be the down payment and you'll be expected to pay off the rest at a later date.
Where do you where nanchatte? I'm interested in the fashion but I'm concerned about people thinking I'm actually in high school. How does this work out in the west?
>>10509095I just wear it as regular clothes desu, Like shopping, going to a café, even for an outing like a museum or an amusement park. I haven't really had anyone think its an actual uniform, my mom has commented on how it "reminds her of a british school uniform" but most people just seem to think its a preppy style. I wouldn't wear it to a workplace tho, but my job has a uniform so I don't have the chance anyways.
Does anyone have the link for the discord server?
>>10509095If you don't wear a blazer, it doesn't look that much like a school uniform.
>>10505757Drop dead, holy shit no one cares you're a whore
>>10509095I wear it casually, when I wore it in high school/college I usually just got compliments for it being "navy themed" (sailor collar) or preppy. It's my go-to summer/fall style and few people care
>>10509555It's pretty dead but I could post one if you're still interested?
>>10510335hi yes please
>>10511100https://discord.gg/uyed5bEX here is a 24 hour link, hope you find it in time!
Is there a JFashion brand that mixes goth/punk with Nanchette? Nothing OTT, just slightly alternative. In fact I'll try any brand that isn't lolita if anyone knows any.
>>10519175I mean, bodyline has some punky looking things that could work.
my nanchatte haul....took advantage of bodylines omikuji coupon
>tfw no nanchatte gf
>tfw no nanchatte bfbut unironically, i've never seen any guy do it well
>>10528206>i've never seen any guy do it wellGuy here, my biggest problem is finding sweater vests that show off the blade of my tie more. Also I drift towards plain colors so everyone thinks I'm just wearing business casual anyways.
this thread would be much more interesting if we posted our coords. here is mine, forgive me for not having a proper nanchatte bag or shoes but will update this coord when the respective items arrive. this is an h&m blazer with the front button replaced with a more "school looking" button.
>>10529531cute! I actually like the choice of bags.
>>10499402>>10499429Agreed. Dark Academia is having a moment in the west right now. So it's a good time to wear that shit.
>>10529599I really like the dark academia look - it's a good name for how I dress when I'm not in lolita but I find the subculture super-cringe. Hopefully it'll mean more tweed and tartan will be sold by more mainstream brands.
>>10529608Are you me, anon? I’ve worn this style when not in lolita since college. I always got my stuff from thrift stores, but I noticed places like Uniqlo are selling nice wool tweed skirts and pants now.
>>10529608>>10529640same but also worth mentioning the “academia” style has always been in existence and every so often has a resurgence in main stream fashion. without getting too much into /fa/ territory preppy/ university school looks where even big name fast fashion brands make stuff that can be worn as nanchatte have been made. pic related, before i knew nanchatte was a thing i was buying stuff like this when i was younger.
>>10529640>>10529687AYRT, I'm from a famous UK university town and am now an academic myself so I've also always been surrounded by the battered-tweed-and-tartan look. When I go home it's great to pop into the second-hand shops as I usually buy up pre-1970s school blazers and boating jackets. This is why I was glad when I first found out about "dark academia" but as I said earlier I do find it a bit cringey. I love nanchatte and wish to combine it for my relaxed looks when I'm not in lolita. Even in lolita I find my style slowly turning into a more "tweedy-otome" look.>>10505803This is my favourite image in the thread. I'd love to trot about my city in a more winter style outfit and a big woollen scarf
>>10527575I need more vest inspo! Please share when it comes anon>>10529531Cute! Agree with the other anon, the bags actually make it feel more authentic to coming home from school and hanging out with your friends
>>10529593>>10529834 hehe thank u <3 <3also i am that same anon who posted the bodyline haul.. which arrived super fast!! the 30 dollar shipping is totally worth it. a few things about the itemsthe cardigans are a heavy sturdy knit much better than uniqlo's paper thin cardigans plus there's functioning pockets. gives your body a perfect boxy silhouette while still being slimming. the vest is quite thin, feels delicate. i guess theres a reason it was only 1100 yen. But the silhouette is the correct boxy shape when put on which is important. bows are detailed and have adjustable length. keep their shape very well.loafers are cute .. but tight!! luckily i dont have potato feet lol or else i dont think i couldve got them on. go up a size if you have wide feet is my advice.for a starter nanchatte wardrobe bodyline is pretty decent! waaaaaaaayyy more affordable than say, conomi. when i have decent lighting in my room (need sunlight for clear pics) ill post a vest coord 4 u anon!
>>10531047Uniqlo women's cardigans don't work for nanchatte but you could check out Uniqlo men's cardigans! There is one that is 100% wool, it is extremely sturdy and warm and the shape works for nanchatte. Unfortunately, being men's cardigans they don't have cute colours, but the black, gray, and navy ones are still suitable.
>>10498872Nanchatte isn't too far off from my office clothes, except I wear a solid color pleated skirt instead of plaid. I've had people ask if it was a school uniform before. I don't see why it isn't suitable for older women.
>>10531047Ooh I’d love to see the cardigans on if you have the chance!
always been terrified to ask a gf to wear this ..much to my regret..is 44 too old,I don't want put on a register!
Is there a nanchatte brand thats slightly more lolita? Like heart shaped pockets on a duffel coat or a strawberry embroidered somewhere. I know milk has some stuff like that, but they usually take it too far and put strawberries on the whole dang thing.Maybe i have to just get normal stuff and add a strawberry myself?
>>10538751why don't you wear it yourself scrote
>>10538761there's a lot on tb/ali.
>>10538761to alice does a lot of stuff like that
>>10538761I remember Kokokim used to have some pieces
>>10538761Secret Honey has stuff like that rn.
>>10547869That's cute! That reminds me, any recs for blouses with details like pintucks? I've noticed most Japanese nanchatte brands only sell plain blouses.
Seems like DML is also getting into the frillier uniform side.
>>10498116>tell gf I love nanchette fashion for girls>she says "wtf you like school girls?">"no (yes)">that sucks>she shows me basically the same but with gucci and other turbo expenssive brandsI hate consoomers
>>10549326eww. no. take this garbage to jfash general.
>>10549343Bro just wear nanchatte for guys so you match
>>10549343You sound awful. Put on the short skirts yourself.
>>10549611I don't understand your point, she was ok with it as long as it had a super expenssive brand printed on top.
>>10549373School uniforms belong in nanchatte.
>>10549626In no place is that a school uniform. School uniform inspired, maybe. But it's not nanchatte.
>>10549626That low-quality abomination is not a school uniform.
>>10507207whatever you say sissyposter
>>10549983You are saying that in a thread where people recommend Bodyline skirts.
>>10549982and anons have been asking for frilly school uniform parts like that, chill
Does anyone have any advice on where I can get Nanchette fashion for tall plus size people?
>>10549626that's not a school uniform. it looks like a shit OL outfit.
What are some good affordable brands to buy from if you're in the US (for me Florida), but you're also on the taller (5'8"), curvier, and thicker side (I'm 200 lbs but I'm currently in the process of losing the weight) of life?Thanks.Also, can we get some more mature coords? Since I am pretty tall, and I'm fatter than I used to be compared to when I was a teen I feel like my go to styles now look a bit goofy on me.
>>10550328Why not just lose a bit more weight? You're tall already so 200lbs isn't an awful starting point to work down from at your height. Measurements are really more important than weight though of course. I think Hard Candy was a taobao brand with plus sized nanchatte stuff .
>>10498872No, and a lot of styles with a longer skirt sans bowtie would look smart in a lot of professional situations. With the skirt hiked up, it's more fun and fresh for casual wear. >>10499334>>10501510>>10505138>>10505799>>10505803Almost all of these, minus the bow in some which does look collegiate, would honestly just be assumed to be an office worker except by those familiar with the style.
>>10549614That's some of the best place to buy nachette if you can afford it. Most your major brands, like Gucci, make items for school uniforms. Rich people buy them. There's just very few private schools outside Japan, and more and more are forgoing the skirt/blazer combo for a modern unisex dress code. Most wearing the style whether for fun or because it's their actual dress code cannot afford Gucci, anon. Tell her that you think the outfits are nice, and you'd appreciate her wearing them. Explain that you just don't like actual school girls.
>>10553288>There's just very few private schools outside Japan???
>>10553288what the fuck are you on about?
I'm excited everyone, got this beautiful Eastboy duffle on seamail right now. Heard about eastboy from this thread and wanted to be more nanchatte, plus I needed a thicker coat.Now I just need to get cute socks and loafers !
>>10556075that's cute! I love my Conomi duffle coat, I hope you like yours!
How do I start wearing nanchatte as a future elementary school teacher?
>>10498872The good thing about this style is that it involves things pretty much everyone has in their closet and that it covers wide levels of taste and aesthetics. Even finding more unique items like neckwear or loafers doesn't take too much effort or money.If you already have button-ups, blazers, and pleated skirts then you're pretty much there. Just don't add too much plaid if you're really don't wan't questions.
>>10557097You may have to wear longer skirts (like knee-length) and tights to make it more work-appropriate, but other than that it's very feasible since it's an academic style.
we really need a resource document for stores because people asking over and over again is tiring. didn't we have a list at some point?
>>10558871There's this https://pastebin.com/x80V1hTKbut it's quite outdated. I think it's mostly focused on Japanese shops too.
>>10558871>>10562949Focusing on the few well known Japanese shops is probably the way to go. There's so many stores on taobao now and so many that are replica/low-quality it's going to take significant effort to make a good list ugh
>>10562949I agree, especially since I came to this thread precisely to inquire about western shops! Otherwise there ought to be a copy pasta format for every thread, including editions or a link to the archive, so that it's easier to refer to older posts and prevent repeating old news.
>>10557097I used to teach preschool. Those all look very cute and wearable as a teacher except maybe the shorts. Be aware that elementary school can get messy, so you’re better off wearing things that are washable.
>>10553235Second from the left is super cute, I love argyle sweaters in nanchatte
Any ideas for rainproof jackets that look cute with nanchatte? I have a duffle coat but it only really works with snow and light rain.
What is it about nanchatte that makes it so appealing for everyone?For me, I think it was growing up with ugly uniforms/ dress code in public American schools. Seeing cute uniforms on anime characters as a kid, especially Sailor collar uniforms, Ive found them to be very cute.
HAVE ANYONE SAID "MACHETE THREAD"?
>>10549343Go away loser scrote nobody cares about your shit opinion
>>10584717nayrt, apparently you do
>>10584693It's put together (very easy to coordinate, most blazers go with any skirt pattern, button ups go with everything, etc.) but still feels creative/unique since it's not a common style and there is a variety of accessories. Compared to some other fashions I like (like lolita), nanchatte is way easier to put together and feels very "complete" as a look
>>10584693On top of being cute, it's also super comfy (imo at least) and easy to put on for everyday wear.
>>10584693It's a preppy style and preppy is equated to wealth/status, a good uniform is purposefully made to be flattering on just about any body type, the anime bleed-in that gave birth to thousands of new uniform types and presented an idealized school experience
