In my opinion… They are not! You can make a gorgeous outfit with very little investment or even using few pieces from your closet, a new piece you just bought and maybe a colorful set of heels you never thought you will get to wear again!
It is the sense of fashion and the real definition of its main element: personality. My husband always told me,
“……if you do not feel good wearing it, it will show, it will not look good!”
So you need to start by identifying who you are as a person, what are you expressing today through your cloths? Comfort, peace, beauty, freshness, happiness…. Then create that look using your pieces, an accenting top or skirt or even a dress that you just bought.. Just make it unique! No one should look like you, even wearing the same cloths!!!
I see people here and there at the malls or the street, walking with head to toe outfits, all in logos but no theme. I guess the only theme is the logo implying how much she paid for it. To me, it never captures my attention as this is not fashion. I would always add a scarf, a pin, a small vest, a choker, a funky pair of shoes and bag, or anything that says, although the dress is from xxx designer which you can buy, this is my look, my personality that is totally MINE!
That is my sense of fashion! What is yours?
