In every single fashion magazine they tell women was is classed as ‘fashionable’ and what isn’t. It seems that these fashion designers have the power to tell people what they should be wearing and how to wear it etc. Often what people wear can often mean they are labelled as something. For example ‘hipster’, ‘goth’, ‘preppy’ etc. Nowadays it seems that what people wear defines what they are to other people.
When a new fashion trend comes onto the high street, everyone turns into sheep. They think that if it’s fashionable and that celebrities are wearing them that they have to wear them to be popular.
One of the worst offenders of this crime is chinos. I can’t stand them. Whenever I am out I see loads and loads of people wearing them. They don’t look individual, they just all look the same. They are always in the same three colours: purple, dark red or beige. It makes me think they don’t have the confidence to not be a sheep and just follow the crowd. I decided to try on chinos just to see why people liked them so much and why they were so popular. Admittedly the colour was nice and they fitted my legs well but my bum looked so flat so I didn’t buy them. This could also be said about many other things like crop tops, coloured denim, leather shorts etc.
In my opinion if someone wears something and they look confident in it they look better than someone who is wearing something just because fashion magazines consider it fashionable. Fashion to me is how you style it, not how someone else thinks it should be styled. I would much rather stand out than fit it and follow the crowd
