If you come to think of it, many of the products that we previously thought we didn’t need can actually be helpful to make our lives easier to live. The same goes with the clothes we wear. Starting only with the need to cover our nakedness and protect us from unfriendly weather, we invented fashion so we can create clothes that are considered to be stylish.
As long as you don’t make it your life’s focus and it doesn’t cost you your entire monthly salary, there’s really nothing wrong with being fashionable and being picky with the outfits we wear. Besides, being stylish can do wonders in terms of boosting one’s confidence. Whether we like it or not, many people have the proclivity to base their judgment on others solely on the clothes they wear. Not that it matters, but sometimes, this sad fact can be the reason for some people not taking us seriously if we look shabby or wear old-fashioned clothes.
That is not to say, however, that what people think should dictate what we wear and how we wear it. You still are your own person. You don’t have to be someone you are not or create a self-image based on the dictates of society. What’s important is you feel good about what you wear and still remain true to yourself despite elevating your fashion sense. Believe it or not, it actually doesn’t take much to make yourself over in terms of becoming fashionable. You don’t have to make a complete overhaul of your closet for it. Just buy pieces that can be paired with what you currently have and mix them according to color, style, and pattern.
It’s quite alright to follow new fashion trends. However, be sure not to get pieces you think won’t be ideal for your body type or complexion. You also don’t need to get designer outfits if you can’t afford it. There are tons of stylish pieces out there that look exactly like the ones you see on TV, online or in fashion magazines that don’t cost a fortune.
