Why follow up-to-date fashion and trends? Why not wear just any old thing? Well, in fact, fashion is not something we can get away from. Those of us who do not design our own clothes end up wearing clothes that follow the latest fashion trends. Those of us who do not cobble our own shoes end up shod in a pair that some designer somewhere came up with.
Every time we put on clothing, we are making a statement about ourselves. If we are not aware of current trends in fashion, we might be unaware of what that statement might be. For that reason, anyone who wears clothes and lives in the social world needs to pay some attention to fashion.
By this, I do not suggest that we go overboard. But if you do not know the difference between skinny jeans and jeggings, then you have another think coming. When we choose one item, it is also true that we have ruled out a number of other, conflicting choices.
Take shoes, for instance. Let’s say that you enjoy wearing comfortable shoes and do not particularly care how they look. This does not mean that you should not consider the message you are sending to others based on your choice in footwear. Why not choose the most comfortable fashionable shoe on the market?
When we are fully aware of all the choices and what each represents, we can make an informed decision that suits our character, our values and our social needs.
