Each person is unique and special in their own way and while we might share similarities with others, we are all very different. Fashion is a great way for people to express their identity through their own personal style. As Marc Jacobs once said,
“To me, clothing is a form of self-expression. There are hints about who you are in what you wear.”
A lot of people put pressure on themselves and think that they have to follow ‘trends’ in order to look good, but it is important to dress for yourself not others. It is important to find your own unique and individual style to portray your personality, wear whatever makes you feel good about yourself. A great deal of information can be found out about a person just based on the clothes they wear, and it can reveal a person’s cultural and social identity. You can often tell where in the world a person comes from based on their style, as each country and culture express their own unique fashion sense and style. Fill your wardrobe with colours you love and don’t be afraid to wear patterns or brighter colours.
It is important to wear whatever you feel comfortable in, if you’re not comfortable then you won’t feel good about yourself. Wear your clothes with confidence, once you feel good about what you are wearing your mood will also be better. Social media can lead you to believe that you have to look a certain way to conform in today’s society, but if we all look and dress the same the world would be a very boring place!
At the end of the day, clothes are so much more than just pieces of fabric that you put on every day. It gives us all an opportunity to express ourselves.
