We have all been fashion victims at one point or the other in our lives. While some were able to drag themselves out of it quickly, it took others a long time. And some people are unaware that they are fashion victims. Before we go ahead, who is a fashion victim?
A fashion victim is someone who has become a slave to trends. If you have been around for long, you would have noticed that not all fashion trends look good on everyone. It doesn't mean you are not worthy enough; it just means there are other options for you.
All you need is to follow trends sensibly, observe fashion fads that work for you, and know clothing that suits your body type. That way, you can avoid becoming a fashion victim. Learn more about other ways to avoid being a fashion victim.
Follow fashion trends sensibly
The popularities of trends are misleading sometimes. Your favorite celebrity might look great in a particular cloth, but the same may not work for you. Body con gowns are beautiful and flattering, but we all can tell how they look on plus-size and people with protruding tummies. Knowing what works for you is the best.
It's high time you took a break from reading fashion magazines and blogs. Your fashion designer and stylist are just more creative than you. Try to create your unique style based on the compliments you have received in the past about your dressing. For instance, some people are good at coming colors, while some are geniuses in combining textures. You have it in you; all you need is a push.
Don't buy trendy items straight away
Walking on the streets and seeing some clothes can be tempting. However, you need to resist the urge to buy it. If you don't see yourself wearing the cloth often, don't put down your money.
Set a budget for your clothing shopping
One way to limit yourself from being a fashion victim is to set a budget and only go with little extra cash on the shopping trip. That way, you will be forced to buy only the essential items.
Use trends as inspiration
You necessarily don't have to copy the trends you see from A to Z. Try to create a unique style by adding your personal touch to create a unique style. That's how some people become fashion trendsetters.
Follow trends that you feel comfortable with
Even if all your friends are into the trend, you don't need to join them unless you feel comfortable wearing the clothes. For instance, skinny jeans are attractive. But if you think you will have trouble wearing them, don't buy them.
