I follow fashion, but I put my own spin on it, as I'm told, so I don't worry about stuff like that too much.
But then again, I live in rural Michigan. A lot of people don't get me.
I was being redundant.
No, you were being clear. I agree with you 110%.
First of all, I totally understand what you're saying and this following argument isn't directed towards your opinion, I'm just ranting in general. With the skinny jean trend, very few people can pull off the look, however, the problem (in my opinion) lies not with fashion's need to change, but the fact that people are so damn stubborn about what they should be wearing.
You don't HAVE to follow fashion. If a trend looks good on you, then wear it, but is it really necessary? Why should you put yourself into something unflattering just fpr fashion's sake? It won't make you seem more trendy or hip, just like a conformist.
Also, I REALLY don't understand places like urban Outfitters. Yes, some of the clothes are very cute, but the "ironic" t-shirts that are mass produced? Now I'm angry because they're selling Holgas; every "indie" kid and his/her mother is now going to own that camera in the attempt to seem up with the trends. Seriously, some of my favorite t-shirts were bought at the salvation army for $2 and they last far longer than Urban Outfitter wear (granted, I'm not the most hip girl ever).
Something about the entire fashion industry makes me vaguely angry. In terms of "hip" clothing, I feel like very specific and rather awsome personal trends are mass produced and then just become repeditive.
OK, this made very little sense and I'm just procrastinating. Eh.
