If there’s one thing I get asked a lot as a fashion blogger (and I’m sure, if you are one too, you’ll get it as well!) it’s
It’s not that I’m not qualified to tell people the do’s and don’ts of getting dressed (an MA in fashion and working writing styling tips for designer-clothes at luxury department stores gives you a certain insight for sure), it’s just more that it feels a little pointless. Fashion advice can easily turn into fashion rules, and it’s an industry almost always linked with breaking the rules, so where’s the sense in that?!
When you don’t feel confident in your clothes it’s painfully obvious. You get that shifty awkward eye thing. You probably get a little clammy and sweaty-upper-lip-alert situ going on. And you might as well be wearing a post it on your head that has “Wanker!” scrawled in a burning red Sharpie.
Menswear brand Oscar Jacobson sums this up really nicely:
When you feel what you are wearing, it seldom feels good. But when you don’t think about it, when you can walk, sit and move without having “something in the way”, that’s when you can relax. That’s when you can… “not give a damn”.
