"Your clothes tell people the way you want to be treated."
The truest statement about fashion there is. A reason to keep up on trends, create your own style. Without style what would people think? Of coarse, you might be thinking "Well I don`t care what anyone thinks about me." I think it is important to care. You don`t go anywhere in life without the help of someone else; a boss, a boyfriend, anyone you`re trying to impress professionally. Just think about it this way, two girls, similar talents and skills, but one is wearing a nice dress, hair done, and heels while the other is in a tee shirt, messy hair, and jeans. One looks screams unprofessional, not put together, and "I do not take care of myself," while the other says "I`m ready for anything, you keep up with the latest (what business isn`t looking for the newest thing?), and that you care about what others (customers) will think. What about boys? I think that is simple enough. Of coarse they will get to know your personality but will they approach you in a sloppy outfit? First impressions are always happening, so who knows who you will have to impress unexpectedly.
Looks show our personality and how we want to be percieved. A business woman dresses to be a profesionsal, an artist wears quirky styles to show their creativity, an athlete dresses to show their pride and their passions. This applies also to the dark side of fashion; the hoes dress skimpy to get guys, the older dress too young for their age, the insecure wear distracting clothes to take the attention off themselves.
You are the only one that can move yourself ahead, no one else. Whether we like it or not, care or not; your style reflects who you are and it rubs off on other people. To be that powerful, confident, put together woman we must go out and show it.
