True, some things just aren't suited to us, and its good to know which styles and colours work and which don't but if we are honest, isn't it sometimes just a fear of being out of our comfort zone?
Some people get so caught up in a certain look or style that they think suits them and then that's it. One look for always. Doesn't that get boring? Fashion is something to have fun with. Yes, its great to have failsafe outfits for days when you press the snooze button a few too many times or just can't be bothered caring (which I have to admit is pretty often for me!) but its also important to make sure you don't get in a fashion rut.
What we wear has a big impact on how we feel about ourselves, whether we think we are 'into' fashion or not. It can even impact our moods. For example, I have a certain sister (not mentioning any names :p) who can't bring herself to wear black or a lot of dark colours as it makes her feel sad. True story. If you open her wardrobe you will see white and light gray for as far as the eye can see with maybe a few bright colours thrown in, in an attempt to break up the white!
So if a dark colour can make you feel depressed, surely wearing the same outfit day in day out can have an affect on your self esteem. So why not mix it up a little and step out of your self-imposed uniform once in a while. Who knows, it may just change your life.
