Shapes Over Styles
I just to have a certain style, when I was a teen I was, well, a punk kid. Can you believe it? I’m a little embarrassed. Anyway, the point being that I only wore punk style clothing like ratty jeans, studded belts, band tees and the like. I didn’t care so much about fit or shape. Now I base all my clothing decisions on shape and fit. I usually select dress that fit on the top and flare on the bottom to cover the parts of myself that I’m unhappy about (hello thunder thighs). I think that has been my biggest lesson in style. I don’t get hung up on things like whether I think I can pull off the bohemian or glam or retro or sporty look, I embrace all sorts of look as long as the fit is right.
Isn’t that pup the cutest?
How do you guys feel about this? Do you go for a certain look first (quirky or conservative or mod) then worry about fit or are you looking for great shapes first?
