There's so much buzz about aesthetics and trends in fashion. Whether it be dark academia style, e-girl/e-boy fashion, "basic" fashion or so on. Some people try so hard to stick to a certain aesthetic. I choose not to. The only way to develop a sense of fashion is to wear what you like. THAT is how you truly develop your own style profile. Remember that your outfits may show your personality, but they don't define who you are and what your interests should be. Find the balance between the two.

When I was in middle school, I had to wear uniform. As an expressive person, I used other aspects of my clothes to express my personality. A statement pair of boots, subtle jewelry and even a cute (yet functional) backpack can bring personality to any outfit.

This has helped me SO much. In high school I started doing this and many people told me that they loved my outfits. Wanna know why? Planning. Check the weather and choose your clothes for every day of the week. This allows me to look more put together because I don't have to rush to out something together in the morning.

A lot of people say "quality over quantity". This can't always be the case. because most of us have budgets and can't afford a $200 pair of jeans or a $50 button down shirt. There can be a balance of the two. For example I've found good quality plain white tops for $20 and under, which makes it easier to stock up on them. Overall, the idea is to find good quality, well made clothing for decent prices. Finding discounts and using coupons is also a life-saver.

Some people think that you can't look stylish while being comfortable. This is far from the ruth. In fact, I think that we look much more confident and stylish when we're feeling comfortable in our outfits. You can dress up a sweatshirt or a pair of sweatpants and look both fashionable and comfortable. Also, don't be pressured into wearing something or not wearing something because it doesn't "fit your body type". Clothes are made for wearing. Period.
