Here is the type of outfit I'm referring to: this is something I would enjoy wearing, and by golly (sorry, I had to) I will!
Obviously I like clothes and shoes more than the average person if I'm writing a style blog - but why do other people dislike style so much? Why do we criticize people who make an effort to look nice, or who try to express themselves through clothing? How did it happen that sweatpants, leggings-as-pants, even pajama pants, and UGG boots, are the go-to outfit for students and many others?
And does anyone else feel just a little bit offended that their classmates or whoever are basically stating, through sloppy and overcasual dressing, "I don't care at all what you think of me"?
I don't have the answer. Anyone care to venture a guess? All I can say: dressers-up, represent! Be proud to wear that pretty skirt, those adorable heels, that strand of pearls, that crisp white shirt. Or it may be that you prefer the boyfriend blazer with a band t-shirt and black skinnies. I'm not opposed to jeans and a t-shirt when the time is right - just please, please, leave the sweatpants and pajama pants at home. Or at the VERY LEAST, don't criticize the girl who actually made an effort. Dressers-up, whatever your style happens to be, don't let the slobs get you down...and don't get sucked in to their lifestyle!
