After taking a time out with July’s issue of Vogue Magazine, I am left contemplating fashion and some of it’s aspects. Even though it’s only August, I am slowly starting to get that mixed feeling that fluctuates between excitement for the upcoming season but also that pressure to start buying and wearing the New Season clothes. No one actually physically forces that feeling upon me but it’s there. I think that’s a downside in fashion, it can have this way of making you feel like you’re one step behind and you gotta buy this, that and the other to keep up!
Though in saying this, over the years as i’ve concentrated on choosing personal style over trend driven outfits, I have learned to quickly overcome this feeling. A feeling that i’m sure many of us feel, like we must keep up! Instead I choose to focus on the more excited emotion that I mentioned earlier. Because the notion of the new is exciting and at the end of the day fashion should be fun, with no rules and there to make it your own. Be inspired by the magazine editorials because inspiring their readers is something that I think they ultimately want to achieve or so I believe. I love shopping for new season items early, mainly because that’s when all the best ones pop up but if I feel like still buying something summery in August, then funnily enough thats okay too. I guess what I am trying to get across, is to make sure it’s your desire to shop new season and not because you feel you have to! Shopping should be fun and enjoyable, not because you think it will keep you relevant.
Tell Me what you think about this? Do you get inspired by all the new season pieces and editorials in July/August? For me, not so much July but August YES!
