Femboy fashion is a trend that’s been rising in popularity over the past few years, with some people agreeing that it’s not just a phase and more of a lifestyle rather than an identity. If you’re like the femboy on the street who walks with such grace and femininity, then you have to ensure your wardrobe matches up with your persona. On this blog post we’ll be examining various ways on how to create an affordable femboy look without sacrificing quality!
For those on a budget, this article is for you. Femboy fashion can be expensive so here are some tips as well as some websites that offer cheap clothes for sale.
Read these tips for femboy fashion on a budget:
1. Femboy fashion is not just about the clothes you wear.
Have you ever noticed how femboys (or any crossdresser) are always seen with accessories? These accessories make up for the lack of femininity in clothing, and so it’s very important to keep this in mind when shopping for femboy outfits. If you’re on a tight budget, start with small accessories that can be worn everyday like a ring, earrings or even nail polish.
2. Femboy clothing can be found in thrift stores.
The next time you visit a thrift store, make sure you look through their femboy section for any clothes that may suit you. Some stores that I’ve been to have a section labeled ‘Femme Boy’ with all the clothes being sold for cheap! If you’re looking for something specific, then this is the best place to go. You can even ask the staff if they have anything similar to what you’re looking for.
3. Look up tutorials on how to create your own custom accessories and clothing.
Do you have a specific look in mind for your femboy fashion? My personal favorite is when someone does something different with the clothing, but still keeps it classy. One way to do this is to create your own accessories and clothing that will match. Visit a crafting store (I recommend Michael’s) and check out their tutorials section, where you can find step by step instructions on how to create something on your own that looks professional. You can even ask if they carry any materials or tools so you can get started right away!
4. Makeup is an important aspect of femboy fashion.
Mascara, eyeliner and lipstick are the essentials you need for a more feminine look. If you have good quality makeup, it will reflect a quality femboy. The higher end your makeup is, the better job it’ll do covering your flaws and accentuating your good parts.
5. Femboy fashion is not just about clothing but also about makeup.
My personal favorite is when someone does something different with the clothing, but still keeps it classy. One way to do this is to create your own accessories and clothing that will match…
Femboys are usually associated with makeup because they enhance their features so much that they appear more feminine than most other people (not including real female models). Think of it as a mask, because it hides everything that makes you look masculine, and highlights everything that makes you look feminine. It’s important to experiment with different types of makeup (for example: eyebrows).
6. Fat packs are worth the price.
One observation I’ve made about femboys is that many of them don’t draw lines and instead rely on their natural features to create an illusion. This can be achieved through buying fat packs for certain makeup brands. The cheap alternative would be using tape as a way to cover your skin, but it’s far from professional looking so save that for extended use only!
7. Go shopping alone (if possible).
If you’re a guy, then most likely you’ll get ridiculed for dressing a certain way, especially if you’re dressed very feminine. Make it clear that anyone who wants to come with you will have to accept your choice of clothing. Most of the time I go shopping, I go alone because if I brought someone with me they would most likely discourage me from buying something because it doesn’t look masculine enough (and thus not suit my identity). This may sound harsh but hear me out…
To some people, it’s more acceptable to dress as a guy who dresses girlishly (feminine boys) rather than someone who is genuinely female. DO NOT take this personally! Instead try to understand where these people are coming from.
Femboy fashion can be expensive. If you’re on a tight budget you can always visit thrift stores and look for cheap clothes that cater to your vision for femboy fashion. When shopping for accessories, consider the clothes you have and the accessories you want to wear instead of buying something that doesn’t suit your personality. Most importantly remember to keep a positive attitude because it’s very difficult for femboys to be accepted as true females without putting in a lot of work.
