Fashion has no rules, it's an evolution and it takes confidence to try out new things, regardless of what the masses think. Most folks are pressured to dress conservatively, and when you attempt to break the fashion barrier, well, your creativity defies the purpose of those who try to set your agenda. Fashion journalists write as though they are an authority on what we should wear, they are only able to see trends, share an opinion, and try to get the masses to agree. Think for yourselves, wear what you want, reinvent, and pay no mind to the status quo perception of fashion. Individualistic people prevail, not the retail industry and trends. But................ I just couldn't be seen in a pair of crocs. Nor could I ever wear a pair of trousers that looked like they had divorced my ankles and married my knees. And you will never see me bare chested except poolside or on a beach. There are so many threads that ask the question, "what should I wear?" Or something worded similar. Wear what you like of course, but you won't see me wearing trainers with a suit, nor could I wear something that looks like a pastiche. Wear a zoot suit, great, but not something that you've hired from the fancy dress shop, unless you're off to a fancy dress party. For the same reason I couldn't wear a white neck tie on a black shirt. Those are just a few of my foibles, I didn't add some, there's many of you that love a couple of items that are simply not me, I shall wait to see what you make of this thread, so come on, tell us what has you reaching for the eye bleach? Is it the hat worn back to front, the leather jacket matched to a pair of Jesus sandals or do you hate to see a shirt collar worn over the jacket collar? But remember, what you don't like, others can adore, it's why we are all so different, yet interesting, stay civil, please.
