Own it

How do you look at fashion? Are you more of a name brand type of person or do you think that names don’t matter? I️ see style as a way a person can put together two totally different pieces of clothing and make it look like a million bucks. If we looked at fashion as just name brand clothes, we wouldn’t have unique styles like we do now; fashion can show a person’s personality.

For a while there was a huge hype on the Jordan brand of shoes, but why? All because the famous basketball player created the line. That started a trend but was it fashion? Many people would say it’s fashion because you can wear the shoes with any type of clothing. This is true, but the trend started to die out after so many releases.

Fashion will never die out. It’s a never ending industry and it will continue to get bigger the more people realize what you wear shows who you are. You can be the poorest person in the city and have the closet of a bum. However you can still get compliments for your jean jacket, sweats, and Air Force Ones all because of how you wore it.

So the next time you go to the store and want to follow the fashion trend, remember you are your own trend. Fashion is you and how you wear that shirt you just bought.
