On a very personal level, I know that when I care for my physical and mental health in ways that are achievable, the pages in this years style chapter will just thrive. But that’s what fashion and style are, they’re truly personal to each one of us and our individual situations. For me this hobby turned career can be balanced more easily between importance and fun, my adoration for fashion can be rediscovered with gusto and the want to explore a different side of my style can be a natural next step and not something just out of my grasp.
I spent a lot of last year slowly working out, albeit likely a little later than I should have, what sort of career person I am. Not in the sense of where I see myself in 5 years or what I can do to better myself, but how I can act in the here and now to make a difference to my work and life, in real time. I wouldn’t go as far as to say I’m a true believer in the ways of manifestation but I do know that dipping into the idea of it has opened up a world of positive thinking that I’ve really been enjoying. I’ve been able to transfer a lot of what I’ve explored into boosting my self esteem, allowing myself to believe in my abilities and to open myself up to far more opportunities for growth. It might seem somewhat out of the ordinary to align something like fashion with the power of positivity but when fashion means so much to me and has offered to open so many doors, why not equate them?
Your style is a way to express yourself, a way to tell a story, a way to sway from the practical to the purely fashionable and for so many of us a way in which to mirror our self belief. There are many that won’t feel that way and may have a more practical interpretation of fashions impact but for the rest of us who adore fashion, maybe a few new fashion rules to follow is a way in which to expand our self confidence for the coming season. Whichever way you choose to view this industry though, I hope you have fun with it. After all, what’s fashion without fun?
