I’m not a fashionista. I don’t own a lot of clothes and my closet is mostly my own. But I’m really into the new “trends” that are happening in clothing and accessories. I think they’re a lot of fun and I really enjoy being on the hunt for new brands and new styles.
I remember being in college and going to an oldies radio station and listening to the women’s wear section. I was so into the styles and fabrics and colors. I never really stopped, but I knew I was missing something.
I think in the past two years I’ve really stepped outside of my comfort zone and started to make a little more effort with my wardrobe. I’m a lot more conscious of the quality of the items I wear and what makes it comfortable. Most of the time I just feel like a slob, but having a few more colors and styles helps me feel more like a grown up.
There are lots of things we are all guilty of and most of them are quite self-indulgent. We get so wrapped up in the fact that we aren’t wearing colors and patterns that we never notice how boring and common these things are. When it comes to fashion and style, remember that it’s not what you wear that matters in the end, it’s what you think about it and how you feel about it.
A lot of people really don’t realize that there are so many trends in fashion. That’s the whole point. For example, you have a bunch of people who are into the very fashy and very pretty, but there are others who just want to wear the same clothes they wore as kids (or in their 20s) in order to look stylish. These trends are usually harmless but there are a few that should be avoided at all costs. The first is the trend toward minimalist clothing.
Minimalism has become a fashion trend all on its own. People are so focused on what they’re wearing that they are afraid to change, so anything that makes them feel comfortable or is a bit different from what they are accustomed to is out. It’s almost like wearing white pants and a t-shirt.
I think this is a great time to be talking about minimalist clothing. This is the time for people to experiment with what they want to wear. It’s not a bad time to try something different but I think there is a danger of being so focused on your own style that you forget to think about others.
For example, I love the way that the new Blackwatch movie wardrobe looks. The style, which includes a little bit of everything and a lot of black, reflects the movie’s theme. Like all the movies the style is dark but it still has that “black” or “dark” feel. This style is similar to the films’ look.
I was thinking about this recently because I’ve been wearing Blackwatch’s black dress shirts for a while. As I was getting ready I had a vision of being in a dark, black dress. That vision came true but my real vision was that I was in Blackwatch’s black dress. The image of the black dress came from my favorite movie – Blade Runner.
