Fashion is fickle, at times ridiculous, and not nearly as diverse as it should be. So don’t take it too seriously. Laugh at it. A lot! Take from the trends what you find inspiring, therapeutic, practical, rewarding and fun, and leave the rest. 

Be the Boss

Don’t let anyone make you feel that your sartorial choices are inferior to theirs. Style is subjective, and beauty lies in the eye of the beholder. Conversely, don’t make anyone feel bad about their style, no matter how different it is to yours.

When style rears its bossy head, step away and focus on something else. Pinpoint what makes you happy and creates good energy in your life. Incorporate as much of that as possible. Style is there to serve you, not the other way around.
