I agree. I wear what I want. I only dress for me, and if I feel good about an outfit I’ll wear it. Peoples comments nor looks wouldn’t make me change my style.
Its okay not to like something, but what’s with the need to comment on it? I do not see the point.
I agree :) and I especially hate the gossip when you’re walking like one meter before them :) (happened to me when I wore my la vie en rose something outfit :s)posted over 3 years ago
I think your way of thinking isn’t wrong but rather too simplistic and idealistic. Its easy to say just wear what you want but pressure from society definitely influences all of us. Our ideas of beauty are strongly affected by those around us. Of course we should all still retain some of our own individuality and wear things that, although maybe not unique, make us feel good. If theres someone always nagging you about the way you dress, its your decision whether or not to take their opinion into consideration.posted over 3 years ago
I agree with you. I try and dress the way I want to but unfortunately it’s very easily to be influenced by what other people think :( Sometimes you can consciously or subconsciously end up dressing in a certain way to impress other people or to fit in… It’s difficult when people stare at you openly or comment on what you’re wearing! But as long as you’re not wearing something inappropriate (like a miniskirt and stilettos to a funeral or something!) then be proud of what you’re wearing :)posted over 3 years ago
I try to seek a balance between dressing for me and dressing appropriately for the situation, because it’s naive to believe that there aren’t social rules for clothing. For instance, if I showed up to work (as a teacher) dressed like Lady Gaga, I might get major style cred but I would be instantly fired and probably arrested for corrupting the children.
HOWEVER, I don’t appreciate snark about outfits when I’m not being obscene or revealing, just different. (And even if I AM being appropriate, I’d prefer they just tell me, not gossip). Some people think we should all look and act the same and they try to criticize people into conforming, but I don’t stand for that. Once the dress code is covered, how I dress is my business.posted over 3 years ago
totally agree. come on itz my body and my style why cant i dress however i want?
i dress according the event or situation. sometimes ppl will comment that i overdress. LOLLL i was like……….. just because u guys dont bother to dress up doesnt mean that I will neglect myself like that AHHAHA
my mom is always commenting about my sense of style (or the lack of it) since young. doesn’t help when my parents are always impeccably dressed! i took it to heart when i was younger because as an asian kid, you tend to want to keep your parents happy and proud.
but now when i’ve grown up, the comments died down a little and they give me room for individuality. the picking still comes occasionally, from my younger sister. which, by the way, annoys the crap out of me!
students in the public uni i’m studying in hardly dress up due to a lot of rules, but so far i haven’t heard of any nasty feedback from them. in fact, one of my course mates told me that she loved how i take the initiative to dress up for class, because it is so refreshing in a sea of t-shirt and jeans!
who says a biology student should dress like one? and why do people even stereotype science students to be boring fashion-wise?posted over 3 years ago
yeah i know, those people are rude, its my life so just back off if they dont like it. HAte it too when my sister who doesnt read fashion comment on clothes i picked in the mall, like ethnic print romper, maxi dress, polka dots tank top and many more!

ugh! really? Choosing to step out of the house in a one-of-a-kind is what makes me … ME! Someone’s got a problem with my outfit? They must not know who I am!
How simple! I haven’t heard a complaint since like … junior high! Don’t change clothes, change friends.posted over 2 years ago
Some of the comments my more fashionably and appropriately dressed friends received were actually from people with zero creativity in clothing, simple-minded, and lived in caves.
So yeah, no reason to take some of the comments to the heart. Otherwise, I wouldn’t want others to only tell me what to wear, but what to do, or how to live my life unless I ask for it. :P Don’t like the tone of “dictation.” However, I am open to well thought responses or suggestions and I can think whether I would take those comments into consideration.posted over 2 years ago
