“All I can tell you about fashion and style is this: buy and wear what makes you happy.”
—John Jannuzzi, Senior Digital Projects Editor, Lucky magazine
Excellent advice, especially given the capriciousness of fashion. Just consider a few of the currently “in” items that were extremely “out” but a short time ago: flats, flares (a.k.a bell bottoms), Birkenstocks, fanny packs, backpacks, non-skinny jeans … the list rolls on, and always will. Remember, fashion is about who someone else says you should be. Style is about who you really are, and you may or may not express that self through items that also happen to be fashionable. So never discard any garment you truly love. All that is out will soon be in again—and if you’re truly focused on style instead of fashion, in-ness doesn’t matter anyway.
