This little manifesto to individuality is not so much about me or fashion as it is about the nature of humanity. We humans love the general excitement associated with the change of trends. In fact, if one individual was to wear a less common style of pants for long enough it’s highly possible that others would eventually start to follow. That would be the birth of a trend. The idea of something new and unique is a major turn-on. Ironically, in today’s social media society these looks are quick to be over-saturated and opposite of individual. This can be frustrating.
Is trending good or bad? Neither. It just is.
This is where ‘staple pieces’ can come into your wardrobe and to the rescue. These are single garments that are well-constructed and highly flattering to your personal physique. In the world of fashion the key to looking confident is the ‘fit’ of your clothing. No matter what the current trends may be in your community – stay true to yourself. If this summer’s bold yellow invasion isn’t your thing then try pairing a different pastel with one of your staple wardrobe pieces.
Long story short, this summer challenge yourself to pave your own trends. Validate your own inspirations and incorporate them into your look. National trends and their media saturation can serve as a platform of inspiration for you to find yourself!
