In my opinion Fashion is a very personal.
I don't think to many people talk about how personal it actually is or even really care to acknowledge it. We find ourselves in a day in age where body shamming, mommy shaming, and numerous other forms of shaming make themselves overly apparent on the daily. I believe it is time that we start to open that door and talk about the personal in fashion.
Fashion is personal for many reasons. Here are what I consider to be my top two.
The first being Comfort.
The level and variety of comfort that you are most okay with is going to be different from the person sitting next to you. For instance, I do not necessary feel as comfortable in flats as I do heels. This mainly stems from the fact that I am short. It might be peculiar, but I do feel a little more self conscious in flats than I do heels. I still wear flats, however I find that I exude more confidence when I am in heels. This fact is personal to me as an individual and is what makes my fashion choices and tastes unique to me.
The second is Shape.
We all have a different body shapes. What may look good on me may not look good on you and vise versa. Our body shapes are not something to be ashamed of. They are who we are and should be celebrated, appreciated and loved. Taking the time to figure out what works for you is an important personal journey. You can read all the tips and tricks you want from any magazine article, but ultimately it's going to be about you and it's going to lead back to the first reason of Comfort. You may find that you love a style of clothing that most might say is not meant for your body shape or vise versa. Ignore others opinions because all that matters is you. For me it's more about color than shape. I feel very comfortable in black, dark blues, mainly fall colors. Typically if you put me in something pink I will not feel comfortable at all. Even if it is a cut that I love or the exact same fashion that I own already own in black.
It doesn't matter what is trendy today.
Just because it's trendy and everyone around you is wearing it.
Doesn't mean a thing if you are
1. not comfortable
2. doesn't accentuate your shape how you want it to.
Just be you and do you because you got this. Let your confidence roll out the tips of your fingers and add a spring to your step. You are a unique individual and
it's your body so make fashion work for you.
