STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Better Bold Than Never

May 8th, 2015 at 2:10am

When is confidence ever out of style? Okay, that phrase may or may not sound like it came straight out of those tween girl magazines that I used to hoard back in middle school, but still, confidence isn’t a fad—it will never expire and it definitely will never be out of style. Confidence could mean literally anything to anyone, but to me (when applied to personal style and fashion), it’s being fearless in however you choose to express yourself and being completely happy in your own skin, regardless of what the haters everyone else thinks!

For her outfit, this Fashionista chose to rock a gorgeous navy fur coat as her statement piece. Generally, when you walk around campus, you don’t see everyone making that kind of bold statement. There’s a reason why being bold stands out; not many people go for it. It should be more of an incentive to put yourself out there, right? I mean, what’s the point of conforming? What’s the point of being just like everyone else?

So, this week’s style advice would be to express yourself with absolute confidence. While you may not be an avant-garde kinda gal and wear fur outerwear, like this coat or vest, it’s up to you to dictate what you wear. Maybe you’ve never tried wearing prints because you’re afraid other people would automatically spot you and judge you, but honestly, who cares? One, you look amazing; and two, what you choose to wear doesn’t concern anyone else but you! If you’re willing to try rocking a killer statement piece but not sure how to start or are into fur pieces, take baby steps and try this floral bomber (perfect for spring!).

What is your STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK? “Don’t be afraid to wear a bold statement piece; as long as you feel confident and keep the rest of your outfit simple, you can pull it off! When your life feels like poop, just remember: when you look good, you feel good.”
