Expression Through Fashion
I walk through the halls at my high school school and see how most of the teens at my school have conformed to the dress code of sweatpants and hoodies. Our choices about what we wear says a says a lot about our decisions of conformity within a society. I feel like in society’s it is much easier to conform and act (and in this case dress) like everyone around you than having that sense of individuality (that can be scary to have). I feel like my school has merged into one single identity and anyone who acts or dresses different is seen as “THAT girl”, and let me tell you that I am totally okay with being THAT girl. In my mind I am that girl who dresses cute and walks the halls like a celebrity (and everyone else is just weird for wearing ugly clothes)! I refuse to give up my sense of style and conform to the hideous uniforms of sweatpants and hoodies. I have never been the type of girl to wear sweatpants or put on a hoodie. I have always been the girl who doesn’t care what others think of her fashion choices. Since elementary I was wearing the most absurd pieces of clothing (neon, sparkly and glittery EVERYTHING, tutus) because it made me happy. Honestly nothing has changed since elementary, except OF COURSE my sense of style–THANK GOD FOR THAT! The bottom line is wear whatever you want! Who cares what others think of your fashion choices, experiment with clothes and have fun! It’s the many things girls get to look forward to in life! Also girls, wear whatever makes you feel happy and confident (even if that is *sighs* sweatpants and hoodies).
