Does your clothing really define you?

Does it matter how much we spend on our clothes? or What store we purchased our clothes from?

From a young age, we all felt the pressure to dress to impress. Starting off the new semester with last years shoes felt like the end of the world. This is a problem I sometimes still struggle with. Will anyone notice? Is it just in my head?

We as a society often get caught up in the expectation of perfection, and with social media platforms like Instagram, where influencers strive to paint a glamorous picture of their lives, its hard not to compare yourself to them. We’re encouraged to spend more money and look a part, but to who’s benefit?

Whether its a $10 pair of jeans or $200, walk into a room with the same poise. You may simply not have the luxuries to purchase from a high end store or perhaps you are just a person who would rather spend your money on other things. Either way, you are not less than someone that shops at Barneys or Neimen Marcus.

Fashion should never be solely based on the cost or the brand of your outfit. Your look should be based on how you want the world to see you. Confidence comes from within, the clothes are just bonuses.
