It is all around the magazines, ceaselessly featured on tv, and even some newspapers are in on the sport. Recommendation on what to put on and what to not put on. The folks we encompass ourselves with are typically all too completely satisfied to share their ideas on our outfits. It is laborious to keep away from, as a result of the message is in all places, and if we do not observe the development, we’re informed we have “let ourselves go”.
However does it actually matter? In spite of everything, the primary objective of clothes is to maintain us heat and protected from the surroundings that surrounds us. Garments are supposed to be useful. With out fur or feathers to maintain us snug, we depend on totally different supplies to do the job for us. It actually is sweet when garments look enticing, however regardless of how interesting one thing is, if it does not really feel nice towards the pores and skin and if it’s a ache to put on, why ought to we topic ourselves to it just because it is vogue?
One vogue assertion has divided girls’s opinions for many years – the excessive heeled shoe. Some girls put on them as a result of it is usually thought that they make legs look good. Some put on them as a result of they make you look taller. Some truly discover them snug to put on, while others cannot handle to stroll quite a lot of steps in them with out twisting an ankle. They’ll trigger foot issues, leg and again ache, all within the identify of vogue. Is it value it?
The reply just isn’t as easy because it appears. Usually talking, the older we get, the much less we care about what’s in and what’s out. We have selected what we wish to put on and what we really feel snug in, so after we go on a buying spree, we’re more likely to get extra of the identical or comparable. We could get the occasional “fancy” merchandise for particular events, but when we like our denims and trainers, that is what we’ll return to on a each day foundation.
Like every trade, vogue is about cash. The fixed change in traits that makes folks change the content material of their wardrobes all year long is designed to maintain us spending our money. If vogue magazines informed us that the most recent must-have is, in reality, the identical must-have as final 12 months, and the 12 months earlier than that, folks would solely exchange that merchandise if it have been broken or if it did not match anymore. To maintain clients on their toes, and to maintain folks within the trade in work, vogue should hold evolving.
That does not imply that we’ve got to observe alongside. Not until we wish to. There is not any level in buying garments simply because they’re fashionable if we can not afford or lengthy to take action. Sure, fairly garments may help after we wish to appeal to a companion, however until that companion is a part of the style trade or somebody who follows the most recent traits to the dot, they’re unlikely to care all that a lot.
My recommendation is to go for what you want, no matter what the media let you know to put on. If you wish to look good, absolutely anything will work if it is appropriate in your physique kind and skintone. If you happen to like to decorate to impress, go for it. If you happen to like your excessive heels, go for it (although I would not put on them on a regular basis – give your toes the break they deserve). If you happen to like your garments made for consolation, be happy. Do not let anybody let you know you have let your self go simply since you like your hooded tops. They do not should put on them.
Everybody must be free to decorate how they like. If you happen to like what you put on, it helps you’re feeling assured, and that is way more enticing than the most recent designer gown.
