I don't know what I'm looking for...I keep making rediculious outfits!?

I went to the mall today and THOUGHT I was buying myself some good stuff. I am trying to change the way I dress (I usually wear really boring, non-descript stuff and babydolls), and stand out more, be trendier. I have to return about half of what I bought because it just doesn't work. On the one end I bought a skirt my mom says is way too slutty...then I bought a sweater she says is really "gay". I was in stores like Forever 21 and Charlotte Russe, so I don't know why I wasn't picking out good stuff. I want to look feminine, but cool (aparently I don't know what that is...). Can someone tell me WHAT pieces to buy?

    Go with some jeans and a cute top. That's my answer to everything.

    In all honesty. Don't pay too much attention to what others want you to wear. Take a step back and think of what you would want yourself to look like and go from there.

    Your clothes are meant for your body. You are meant to feel comfortable in them. They are for YOU not anyone else.

    I think you are shopping at good stores, but you're just getting the wrong things. You can wear bab dolls, dont retire them. But wear skinny and straight leg jeans with hem, tight. Only wear one loose fitting piece at a time. if its a flowey a-line dress, wear a tight tank or blouse. wear things that fit your shape, accentuate he waist, but and hips. try some things like this...........
