For as long as I can remember, I’ve always had my own style, but never fully embraced it until I got older. In high school, when my peers were wearing Nike and Jordan shoes, I was wearing Converse and FILA, because I simply did not want to look like anyone else. I remember painting a pair of my Converse in rainbow colors and everyone fell in love with them, that’s when I knew being different was okay when you’re confident in your own skin.
If You Love What You’re Wearing, That’s All That Matters
Stop seeking validation from opinions that are not contributing a cent into your wardrobe. It’s okay to seek advice when you’re not sure on which blouse/shoe you should wear, but if you’re receiving hate on an outfit that you have styled and put your all into, ignore the naysayers. Not everyone is going to appreciate what you like, and that is okay.
Staying True To Yourself
Whether you’re rocking your favorite pair of run-down sneakers with every outfit, still loving a trend that no one is wearing anymore, if you’re comfortable with your personal style, nobody can tell you anything that you don’t already know.
