Clothing is often referred to as our chosen skin – often the most obvious medium we use to say what we want to say about ourselves to the world. What do you want your clothes to say about you? This may sound like a frivolous question (and it’s certainly a privilege to be able to even have this conversation) but what we wear can give us confidence and help us to be the best version of ourselves. We all have to get up and get dressed every day (shame). We all buy clothes and our money will be given to the garment/fashion industry so it feels important to use it as an opportunity to buy wisely and wear clothes that really reflect who we are.
I think that there often comes a time, particularly for women, when clothes become a chore. We wear them for function and not for expression or joy. Often this rut in personal style can come because other more pressing seasons in our life (like, becoming a parent - HELLLOOOO LEGGINGS). Sometimes the fashion industry, with its 52 micro-seasons a year (yes, really) can leave us spinning with so many emerging trends completely baffling our ability to know what we actually like when we eventually try to claw our style back.
