An Evolution

by | Apr 23, 2021 | Fashion

2020 through 2021 has been a year of big changes.  For one, we all struggled with the transition from “normal life” ie. eating out, seeing friends and family, and going to work or school to “quarantine life” ie. costco bags of onion rings and netflix (but no chill).  However, the biggest changes have been internal.  Even if with vaccines rolling out, and facilities opening back up, things will not be the same.

For example, fashion and self-expression has become a vice to some and a battle long lost to others.  And it makes sense, why wear anything fun in these times?  It’s not like you’re going outside much, and zoom only showcases your torso, so who cares?  I think we can all admit, quarantine life was enticing in theory, “I never have to wear real clothes again!” we rejoiced. And look at us now, staring at our skinny jeans forlornly, wondering if we have the guts.  

I’m not here to tell you to slap on some makeup, don your favorite skirt, and go dancing, nor am I here to tell you to bundle up in your duvet, and become a vampire.  It’s not about that anymore; the world has changed too much for society to still be judgmental of couch potatoes. Instead, we must learn to be comfortable in our own skin again.  And don’t get me wrong, that’s scary— doesn’t that mean we’ve lost ourselves?  To that, I say, no, change isn’t an extinction, it’s an evolution.  During quarantine you didn’t lose yourself, or become a clone of who you were, you’ve developed.  You’ve become more resilient, even if you feel lazier, more sensitive, even if you feel broken.

Grow into yourself and gift yourself acceptance during this time.  As the dumpster fire that is our world rages on, find some stability within yourself.  And if you want to wear skinny jeans, wear skinny jeans, but don’t go searching for a normal that’s passed.  Get your vaccine, put on some slippers, and enter a reborn world knowing who you are.

How Social Media Has Impacted Fashion Trends

How Social Media Has Impacted Fashion Trends

Every decade had its main fashion trends that stayed for the full 10 years, we all know 70’s hippy, 80’s neon, 90’s grunge, and y2k futuristic with a retro edge, but what about the 2010s. 2010 to 2012 was still y2k style, 2013 to 2016 was all boy bands, and then 2017 to 2019 were all repeats of the ’70s, ’80s, and ’90s. It was all over the place, and so far 2021 hasn’t been any different, starting with y2k fashion, then the 90’s, and finally its own style with hints of both the 90s and ’00s.

Let Idiots Burn In Hell

When you are expressing yourself through fashion, people will comment on your outfit. And maybe you will take their opinions and think them through, cry, or just ignore them like the badass you are. Peoples opinions are like flies, buzzing around you and constantly annoying. On rare occasion, they will be helpful, but on the more realistic side, they are the most frustrating thing that can occur when it comes to fashion. Whether it is simple, “Your outfit is very bold,” with hints of disgust. Or the straight up, “What are you wearing?” The one sentence that can send you over the edge.
