Although exists the peer pressure of looking good and other social conformism that has been laid so heavily especially on women all around the globe, participating therefore in the culture of fashion, following or not following its trends and rules can also become suffocating. Not to mention the industry’s emphasis on perfection, often within a narrow standard of beauty, or the social media’s obsession with joy, where everyone tend to achieve this unattainable nirvana-level of happiness. All of these factors can also exacerbate a certain pressure.
Well, today I’m talking about the trends we are dying to keep up with were all started by someone somehow. However, that’s their identity. Not necessarily ours. In fact, people who completely copy other people’s fashion identity do so probably because they may have no identity of their own. However, it has never been dramatic to copy, as soon as it’s a moderate inspiration but not a fashion idolatry, an identification to someone or something. This is why you should never feel like you need to become a slave to the trends by investing insanely in clothes that don’t really fit you or throwing away good clothes which you like just because they’re no longer in. At the end of the day, none of those trends were written in stone and passed down to us from some ancient ancestors. So who says you have to conform to another person’s idea of what is socially acceptable? We can’t all be fashion icons, and we shouldn’t lose our identity whenever a new style hits the market. Indeed fashion is beautiful. Getting dolled up is nice, but feel free to wear what is right for you, and not just what is socially acceptable. Thus, when you restrict yourself to a certain ”flattering” aesthetic that caters to all the traditional notions of beauty, you restrict yourself to a very small part of what fashion has to offer. Break out of this mould, don’t be guilty of confining your wardrobe to specific clothes.
Remember, regardless of what you’ve seen through this blog stated as “in-style” shouldn’t have any effect on how you feel about your own style. Because, what’s more important is to always step your game up,this is the attitude you all need: to be in love with your own style. Whether you are rocking pajamas or the most ugliest flip flops, you should run the streets like every week is Fashion Week because you’re the hottest and most sensational new designer. The beauty of fashion means it sets you apart from the person next to you so if we all dressed how a city, population or school wanted us to dress, there would be no individuality. Plus, without individuality we are all just finally a number which is something we struggle enough with. There is already so much pressure to be happy and successful, don’t stab yourself in the back with another pressure. My suggestion for avoid the trends pressure and finding your personal style is to get that comfort you’re actually seeking by shutting out the noise and surround yourself with good energy. Dress up like it has always been a narrative for you, keep creating characters and telling stories with your clothes, so you can curate your wardrobe to reflect this. Finally, turn off all of your devices and just be present, rest your mind, and take an adventure.
