THE NEW KIND OF “COOL”

IMG_2728edited
With the new wave of cool- the unspoken minimalism, social media (instagram) visually cool rule, it’s so easy to lose yourself. It’s so easy to lose your own voice and follow other people’s own perspectives and (fashion) choices.

So, how do you free yourself from these false or unhelpful beliefs that the world throws at you and somehow become ingrained in the deepest recesses of your mind? As I took time off, I learnt that, everything is a self-portrait, so is fashion. I’ve come to realize and accept the fact that, I am colour. I am print vomit. I am more. I am not less. I am clashing personalities, a quirky sense of fashion and humor. I am an exaggeration in my fashion choices. I am not the new wave of suit and sneakers kind of girl. I am all in one and that’s okay. That’s okay by me.

So, when I woke up today, I felt a freeing feeling in the way that I respond to the world that deems being ‘less’ in fashion a thing. I will continue to dress my world, one hue at a time, two prints a day, with or without a nod from the world.

What I know for sure is, the world keeps changing its mind. Better create your own, solidify your identity, and be your “new kind of cool”- all ways, always.

Love.

    lovely outfit, when I looked at your protective style I thought to myself, I need that simplicity for my hair. I have learnt to do my own thing for my natural hair and not overwhelm myself with social media standards of “cool ” natural hair like you say .
