Throughout my life and love of Fashion, I have heard many friends and family say that there are outfits or specific pieces, that they wish they can wear or could have worn. It has always been sad for me to hear this. I have been Peer Pressured, multiple times, into wearing clothes that were deemed as ‘cool’ rather than what I wanted… I hated it.
Luckily, there is something that I have learnt, that makes your outfits come alive. It is a well kept secret, that not many people like to share. Within this post, you will find out what the secret is!…. Are you ready?
In these photos, you will see that I am wearing a suit jacket. This is my husbands suit jacket. Not mine. I hope this proves a small point, about you being able to wear exactly what you want.
I just wanted to share with you some of my thoughts on being peer pressured into wearing clothes that you don’t necessarily love.
If someone is telling you not to buy something, but you really want to.. then buy it and wear it proudly. If someone is telling you that it is not on trend and that they dont like it… that means that it could potentially be a new trend that you have created and thought of, and that may be coming out in the next year or two.
If someone is telling you to be anything but yourself… DO. NOT. LISTEN.
I had an old friend, that told me once not to wear white jeans because they weren’t cool. I have wanted to wear white jeans my whole life but continued to tell myself that they weren’t cool, that they were chavy, but in reality.. they are beautiful. They would have looked beautiful on me and I would have ROCKED THEM.
Now, I still don’t have a pair of white jeans in my wardrobe.. but as I am currently re-inventing my wardrobe….. Watch this space!!
The Secret to Rocking any outfit… is self-love.
Yep. You read that right!
Loving ourselves for who we are is KEY to looking beautiful. Really love yourself enough to put yourself in an outfit you will feel absolutely beautiful in… or sexy, hot, fit, gorgeous, whatever you feel like being on that day/night.
This will not only transform the way you look, but the way you feel about yourself. Love yourself enough to wear Fashion that defines YOU and not the world. These are two VERY different things, and this needs to be addressed in your life if you haven’t done so already.
Being exactly who you are, should N E V E R be questioned.
Style is not a display of wealth but an expression of imagination.Unknown.
