I’ve never been one to make New Year’s resolutions. I’ve found that some people really love to make them, some don’t care either way, and others really oppose the whole idea. I’m normally one of those who really could care less. Until, I decided I need a more positive outlook when it comes to my style. And I realized that this wasn’t something that was unattainable. These three style resolutions are very realistic and can be followed by anyone of any size.
In 2014 I will…
Ignore the Fashion Critics
There’s nothing to criticize when it comes to true fashion. Fashion is all about self-expression and no one has the right to tell me if what I’m wearing is stylish or not. And to be honest, who are they to judge? Oh…I’m sorry. I didn’t notice your college degree in criticizing fashion.
Wear What I Want
If I see something I like, I will buy it because I like it. Not because it’s the “trend.” There’s nothing wrong with trends, but there’s also nothing wrong with wearing something because it’s appealing to me. It’s my style for a reason. And if I’m comfortable in it, that’s all the more reason I’ll wear it. I’m tired of people telling us what we should and shouldn’t wear.
Not Fear Fashion
I’ve written about it once and I’ll write about it again. There is no reason in the world to fear fashion. It can be fun, adventurous, safe, or calm. It’s whatever I want it to be. I should not be afraid to be seen in bright bold prints or denim and a pair of flip flops. I will express myself in the way that I feel fit, with no sense of fear or regret.
What are your style resolutions for 2014?
