Are You a Slave to Fashion? Here are 6 Ways to Stop Being One This Year.

Everyone has a different view when it comes to style. Although I love all things fashion, I do not allow the never ending trends get to me. I am not a slave to fashion, technology or anything. To me, that’s the unhealthiest place to be. Being fashionable ought to be fun and creative. If you have been a slave to fashion and you want to make a switch in 2018, here are 6 ways you can do that.

 

Realize that fashion trends don’t last

You know how it’s like when the latest outfit gets released and it becomes really popular, but then after a few days or weeks the hype fizzles out? That’s how it is in the fashion industry.

Today one outfit is fashionable and everybody wants to wear it and the next day it gets outdated. Going after the latest fashion trends is like chasing the wind. You can never catch it. It is OK to go after trends you have an interest in but don’t get carried away with the endless stream.

Choose only what feels comfortable

What’s fashionable is not always comfortable. Sometimes they are too tight or too revealing or too inconsistent with your personal style. Extremely fashion conscious people, most often than not, throw away comfort and focus on being trendy.

But when you think about what a terrible experience it is to dress uncomfortably for hours,  then you will know how unwise it is to compromise your comfort for being in style.

 

Define your own style

You are a unique being. Fashion is a medium of expression. You can define your own style that perfectly expresses your unique personality. There’s nothing like being able to choose what works best for you.

Fashion trends were created by people who followed what they believed and reflected it their own personal style. People loved it and adopted it as their own. Why not start your own trend instead of following someone else’s?

 

Embrace your individuality

Another way to get over being a slave to fashion is by embracing your individuality. We look up to magazines, what’s on social media and what we see on television. But the truth is that as an individual you have your own perceptions of what is fashionable.

You can be your own source of fashion ideas and inspiration. Yes, what you see in magazines, social media and television can give you inspiration but they should be used only as a means to awaken ideas that will help create your own kind of fashion trends.

 

Don’t be afraid to be creative

This is something that I love the most about fashion. It gives you the avenue to be creative. The combinations of outfits and layers you can come up with are endless. And most of all, mixing and matching clothes is fun. It’s something that I enjoy doing and I’m sure many do too.

Originality

Being original is the key when it comes to distinguishing yourself from others. All people nowadays want to be like no one else. Everybody wants to be original but only few are truly original. Originality comes not from shopping magazines and buying products but from your heart and soul. You need to use your brain and be yourself no matter what others think or say about it.

Without any doubt, style is always fashionable and it is style that makes people beautiful. But you simply can’t buy style. You can only feel it. The best to start doing it is to quit listening to others and start listening to yourself. That is the true philosophy of style. Style is more important than fashion. Style makes fashion. Fashion comes and goes but style always lasts and stands.

 

Clothes

Always buy clothes that fit you. It means that you should not follow any advice but that of your friends and close ones. Never follow any trends or something like. Trends are dead and everybody now decides for himself and herself what is stylish.  You definitely should know for yourself what better suits you. Being original is the best style and it is always fashionable. When you’re buying new clothes, don’t only think about comfort. Always look for clothes that are not only comfortable but that look good on you as well. Try to maintain one style and don’t change the way you look significantly from day-to-day.

 

Haircut and Facial Hair

Your haircut and facial hair in case you’re man as just as important as what you wear. You should pick one haircut that you think suits you best and maintain it. Ask your friends and close ones which one of all your haircuts suited you best. Never forget to think for yourself because you’re the one who knows best what suits you better. Most men look for their facial hair by themselves. Nevertheless, barber shops are now in style again. You can go there and an authoritative specialist will advise you what to do with you beard and/or a moustache. Because, after all, you visit a barber for a haircut so, why don’t let him look after your beard as well?

 

Different Seasons

One thing that can easily ruin your style is how you change your clothes season by season. You can’t wear your cool coat in the summer just the same as you can walk in your awesome jeans when it 10 degrees below zero. Therefore, you need to adjust your looks so one season won’t make you look completely different from how you look during another season.

 

Attitude

Style and beauty are not only in your looks. Your behavior, approach to other people, and your whole attitude either make you beautiful and stylish or not. You need to express interest in other people and be naturally curious desiring to know them better. If it’s difficult for you to meet new people, visit datingladies.com/profiles/ and look for somebody to keep you company. The psychology of style is that you need to feel style rather than wear it. Style is the way of thinking. If you think you go style, then, well, you got it.

All in all, now you know what to do to be stylish, fashionable, and beautiful. Never forget that everything is about originality. Good luck!
