As a fashion lover and wardrobe consultant, I am always very conscious of not becoming a clone and a slave to fashion. There are trends we see and initially go HELL NO, but in a few months we start considering it because everyone is doing it. The present bra top trend is nothing but ridiculous but after seeing a youtube look book with a girl wearing it, and people taking it seriously I'm beginning to wonder what it means to be really fashionable.
About 9 months ago I decided to stop buy clothes and start sewing my own clothes and making do with my old clothes. Since then I have gotten the most compliments about my clothes, my style and fashion sense, while I understand that making your own clothes give you a unique edge I must admit that I don't wear my Anemistyle designs very often. So what then are the basis of these remarks?
Definately not trend or designer label or edgy/uniqueness. My best bet is a refined personal style.
Cutting back my accumulations of 'trendy' junk and making good use of my favourite items over 9 months, gave me the space and time to refine my personal style and that is what being truly fashionable/stylish is. Kate Moss is not fashionable because of her numerous magazine covers but rather her personal style during her down time like at festivals or out and about in London with skinny jeans and boots, she's refined it so much that it is really simple in theory but very stylish in reality.
So do you want to be more stylish and not be a slave to fashion? Then you need do the following.
