Are you tired of following the fashion trends? If yes, would you be interested in starting one by simply expressing yourself?
Fashion is a form of expression similar to art. And just like art, each person has a different way of expressing themselves. However, there is a tendency that others may not appreciate your style. But do not be discouraged because in fashion, there are no rules.
If you are determined to express yourself, then take this advice. Don't follow the fashion trends, start them. Think of it this way. You get to wear the dress that you like and pair it with the retro-modern jacket you have been keeping. You can mix and match to show your personality. You can also get inspiration from your favorite celebrities and re-create it to define you.
Below are a few tips to consider.
This may sound cliché. But admit it, people take this for granted. In order to start a trend, you should be you. Simply look at the mirror and ask yourself, “Who am I?” You may be the simple type, the rocker chic or the classic chic. Who knows, right?
Once you have done that, open your closet and identify which clothes really suit your personality. You do not need to throw away the clothes that don’t describe you. You can keep them and re-design it accordingly.
Let's say you want to wear outfit A; however, that style is not in. You are afraid that people will dub you as a fashion victim or trying hard to look cool. As mentioned, be yourself. If you want to wear outfit A, then go for it. Do not be afraid to come out of your shell. Be confident and wear that outfit!
Heard of the saying, history repeats itself? Same goes with fashion. What is hot now will again be popular but reinvented two decades later an example is the maxi dress.
This was introduced in the late 60s and became popular in the 70s. One of the first maxi dresses was made of cotton lace and was designed by Oscar de la Renta for the Elizabeth Arden salon. Since then, other designers like Biba, Cardin, Dior, Halston and YSL created their signature maxi dresses.
Now this is where being creative enters. Clothes from the 60s, 70, 80s or 90s are dubbed as retro clothing. If you have any of these in your closet or your parents, you can re-design or accessorize. Do not think too much and have fun creating new clothes.
But if you prefer shopping for new ones, why not try new designers. Visit shops selling clothes that are unique. It is always good to see and wear clothes that are not common. It will look fresh in the eyes of many.
Just always remember that fashion trends only serve as guidelines. You have a choice to follow them or simply create your own. Also do not let others dictate what you should wear. Instead, express yourself and shop for clothes that you love.
From the very start, the first humans breastfed their babies largely because formula wasn’t an option. Once considered the only way to feed a baby, modern times have given moms a choice of using their breasts for what they were designed to do or using manufactured nutrition in the form of formula. Oddly, it’s the first choice that many people in the western part of the world make out to be taboo. But something this important and necessary should never be shunned.
