Fashion is such a personal choice. What may be the perfect thing for you is something another may never even stop long enough to look at.
It always makes me wonder each year, spring & autumn, when the designers have their fashion shows, what they were thinking. Have you ever seen any of the outfits, regardless of which successful designer is showcasing their creations, in a store? Maybe it is only me but it is almost comedy hour for a lot of them.
But it is such a lucrative business. People attend the fashion shows, seemly always sold out, to be first to know what will be available the following season.
The models are paid a fortune if lucky enough to be chosen to be on the runway. These models are beautiful, attractive people but why are they not allowed to smile, have an expression of at least enjoying what they are doing. They all look angry with everyone. Also, who do you know that walks the way they do in real life?
These designers dictate the colours that you will be wearing come spring or winter. Going shopping you find most clothes are in shades of their chosen color.
Not all colors suit everybody. While dark colors like black and purple look amazing for some, they are the worst choice for others. Florals not always great, either.
One style right now that is hideous to me is the women’s dresses where it looks like they forgot to finish it with sleeves open, shoulders showing even if you have bony unattractive shoulders.
Men are so much luckier with fashion as basically they always have comfortable clothes. Whether they are going out for a casual lunch, to work, out for an evening they are always cozy and comfy.
If it is a freezing cold night they can put a t-shirt on under a shirt and be warm, out partying they have flat shoes. Why do women have to suffer sore feet from the high heels, being cold as a dress offers nowhere to add another layer.
As long as women accept these choices then there will be no alternative. I love it when someone goes against tradition and does their own thing. At big functions that are on television like the Oscars etc. they are judged harshly by the press on what they wore.
Dressing up for special occasions is fun, you feel good, but not be limited in your choice.
So to all the women out there, be your own person, wear what you like and not was is expected from you. Bottom line who cares what others think.
