After yesterdays post in which I looked back on how my style has changed over the last year, I started wondering: where does personal style end, and wanting to stick out a bit begin.
I first started thinking about that this summer, when I was in Sweden and my "look" was sort of main stream. Then this fall I noticed that more and more of my classmates were dressing more like me. Ever since, I've been pondering the question: is it still my style if it's main stream?
I'm a firm believer in wearing what you want to wear. Logically, I should say that I'm going to wear what I like, when it's in fashion and when it isn't. The less rational part of me is saying: come on, we should change, we don't want to be like everyone else! But in a way, that's still letting the masses control how you dress.
All that was really just a long and convoluted way of saying: if you truly dress however you want, you should wear clothes because you like them, and not because others are or are not wearing them. (Although public nudity is against the law, so please don't go on strike from wearing clothes entirely. I don't want to be the cause of any arrests!)
