Monday’s Musing: Following Fashion Trends vs. Finding My Own Unique Style
Here is where I get tripped up.
I see current fashion. I think, “Wow. That’s an amazing look. I wish I could wear that. Those shoes are super. Oh wait, I would be cold if I wore that. How would I walk the girls to the beach if I wore that? Those rocks and that sand can be tricky. I better stick with what I have on.” The end. That’s as far as I go.
However, in my short time of thinking endlessly about fashion and style, I’ve come to realize that I’ve been distracted by current fashion. I see what everyone is wearing and think I’ve got to have that if I want to look good.
What I’m only now learning is that a sense of style is what I need to focus on. Following fashion trend can come later or not at all even. But style is Me! Style represents my personality and when I walk through the door and meet someone for the first time, my style is telling a visual story about who I am.
So the big question is, “Who am I?” The next big question? How the heck do I translate that into a belt or a pair of shoes? That’s all part of this style adventure.
