Many people are all too ready to disregard a positive fashion habit as one that is “superficial” or “not contributive to anything worthwhile.” This would be a tremendous mistake. Of course, we are interested in fashion on this blog, so we believe in following fashion and what it can do for someone. We often find that people are too quick to celebrate the “what” of fashion and rarely speak about the “why.” In the interest of offering you a complete fashion guide situated on this blog, we would like to dig into the latter, so people who are unsure of developing a fashionable lifestyle can understand the benefits of doing so.
For this reason, we would like to explore the following four benefits of positive fashion choices:
Feel At Home
Feeling at home and confident out in the wider world is impossible, unless you are happy in the way you look. If you are happy and are confident in your dress, you will be much more forthright and able to approach people and socialize better. Without the difficulty of self-consciousness, you will be a much more magnetic person and people will naturally gravitate towards you.
The secret here is that you do not need to be the best looking person or even have the best body to feel confident in a justifiable way. You simple need to adorn yourself with fashionable items in the style that most appeals to you. In this way, and with every item you add in the morning, you are saying to yourself “I am worthwhile, I look awesome, and I am confident.”
Over the course of the day, these morning thoughts will blossom into great conversation, maybe a heartfelt social interact, and maybe even flirt with someone who really catches your eye. Taking a step outside in a new gorgeous sundress, is one of the best ways to start your day, and it announces to the world “I’m here!” after a long night of restful sleep. With this, you can bound into the location of your school or office with a smile.
The fashion community is one of constant encouragement and support. While someone looking in from the outside might feel as though it is intensely competitive and that people who dress well are simply looking to withdraw attention from other people, that is simply not true. If you look at an Instagram account of someone who hashtags their post #fashion or #beauty, you will find message upon message of people supporting each other, asking for fashion tips and advice to find goods they enjoy.
The fashion community is something which wants to help people feel good. The whole point of fashion existing is because it is a celebration of life. We never know how long we have on this earth and so celebrating ourselves and our form every day with beautiful fashion is one of the most celebratory and beautiful ways we have to appreciate our bodies and the color of life.
Believe it or not, fashion does not have to be overly costly and difficult to keep up with. With the prevalence of online markets you can be sure that finding some of the best vintage apparel can be done on the cheap. Apps like Shpock or Depop offer some of the best access to personal stores around the nation and with that comes the potential for finding truly quirky and beautiful items at engaging price points. If you are looking for the next hot new threads you can wear, consider giving these apps a try, and save yourself a whole load of cash otherwise invested on the high street.
The beauty of fashion is that there are no rules governing it. Of course, trends come in and out of fashion, and things we used to wear ten years ago now seem absolutely ridiculous (only to potentially come back in the future.) However, despite these guidelines existing, they are certainly not rules. We can apply our own personal stamp onto the clothes we wear at any time.
It is wise to match colors and try to keep relatively modern in your clothing to feel fresh and updated with the society around you, but it is more than possible to chase styles, which truly help you express your personality in ways which make you feel happy. You are the one wearing the fashion and so making it work for you is of paramount importance. A quick trawl of Instagram can help you find many people dressing in alternative ways, thus finding your community could be advisable.
The benefits of fashion are many, and we hope this article has gone some way in convincing you of this!
