In a perfect world we would all be able to wear whatever we want to and wherever we want to without people judging. I don’t know how you feel about it, but I don’t believe in a perfect world.
Fashion is not only a way of expressing yourself. It is so much more powerful. It has the power to include people into a group and at the same time exclude others. A certain outfit can empower you to accomplish things that you would have never dreamed of. That certain colorful jacket can lift your mood in an instance and that shirt can boost your self-confidence in just a second.
Still I wouldn’t dare going on the street in that outfit and in fact I didn’t (that’s why I took the pictures in my apartment). I would be too much afraid of all the looks from other people. Would they think it’s too revealing, too short or too sexy? Why don’t we all just dress as we like it? Because we’re all scared of judgement.
While I don’t think that anybody is free of that fear, I do think that some are braver than others. I think that there are a lot of people who go out dressing just as they like it. Still we do rather want applause for our outfits than contempt, thus we go out wearing that certain it-bag and running after trends.
I think that everybody is afraid of judgement, some more than others. I certainly am, I’m not gonna lie about it.
What do you think? Do you care about what others think of you or are you one of the brave ones who doesn’t give a damn on what others think? Would you go out like that and am I just being paranoid? 😉 I am really interested in your opinion!
