Let’s preface this by saying that I’m not necessarily the most fashion forward person on the planet.
Not unless watching What Not To Wear qualifies me as a fashionista.
What I do know, however, is that with the increase in warm weather comes a decrease in clothing.
And, ya know, I’m fine with that for the most part. It’s hot, I get it. But when your body coverings aren’t really…covering…you’ve got a problem.
And call it your style (heck, I agree), but the clothes you decide to put on your body send a message to everyone who sees you, and it’s up to you what that message is.
Now you don’t have to dress like a nun (unless, of course, you are a nun), but unless you’re going to own up to the persona your skimpy outfit reflects, don’t dress that way.
And this doesn’t just apply to skimpy versus more modest clothing. Certain people dress a certain way to reflect the type of person they believe they are or want to be. Clothing is often an indicator of class status and personality, only one of which do you really have a choice about. Why do you think we dress nicer when we’re around other people?
If you want to dress with your body parts hanging out, then I guess that’s fine. I just won’t look. But please don’t complain about the people you’re attracting because of it. You made that choice. Your clothes become you.
Stay classy, friends.
