Today in sociology we got onto the subject of what being an individual truly is. And I could not stop thinking about individual style while we were talking about it. I know, I’m weird, but it is true. But what I was really thinking was “Is there really a way that someone can be completely individual in their style?”
We are all obviously influenced by our friends, families, and media. But how much are we influenced? I mean, why on EARTH would I think that jeans that are like a second skin would look good on me? Because the freakin’ media has brainwashed me into thinking that way.
It’s not entirely a bad thing, though. I feel like it helps me unleash my creative juices. Just so you know.
And when it comes to personal style, is there any way you can be completely unique? I don’t think so.
At least I couldn’t think of anyway that you could be completely individual. It seems like even when someone is trying to be “Off-the-wall unique” they are still following some sort of crowd. The “I-want-to-be-off-the-wall-unique” crowd.
Boho, Goth, Diva, Classic, Emo.
All categories of different styles that we all try to fit into. Some of them are more popular than others, some are more low-key some are more off the wall, but none are completely unique.
So help me figure this out, friends. Is there any way we can all be completely unique in our style? And should we be?
