Fashion and style are all about self-expression. The clothes you wear and the way you style yourself are the costume you present to the world, the advertisement you show other people to tell them who you are! Because of that, it’s really very important indeed that you find a style that suits your personality, so that you can show the whole world exactly who you are inside.
The Importance of Individuality
Remember, your fashion is all about you! When picking out a style to match your personality, you should strive to set yourself apart from everyone else. After all, you’re an individual, and your fashion choices should reflect this. Don’t feel pressurised to conform to current trends if you don’t feel like they’re “you”. If you let other people tell you what you should be wearing, you’ve got this all backwards – choosing a style to suit you is all about telling other people about yourself! Anything you do has to be all your own, and no one else’s.
Don’t Mind What They Say
That said, if there is something that’s currently in fashion that everyone seems to like a whole lot, don’t worry if you like it as well! Your own personal style is all about what you like, and if something you like just happens to be something that a lot of other people like, then that’s fine, too. Trying too hard to be unique and alternative by deliberately shunning popular trends is just as shallow and just as silly as blindly following along with them, so don’t fret about what’s in fashion and what isn’t. It’s all about you, so go ahead and style yourself however you please, regardless of what everyone else is doing.
Most importantly of all, though, is that when you pick out a style to suit your personality, it should be something that makes you happy. If your personal style makes you happy and comfortable, and you feel beautiful and full of confidence when you wear it, you’re already onto a winner. Go on, get out there and show the world who you are!
