In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “The Clothes (May) Make the (Wo)man.”
How important are clothes to you? Describe your style, if you have one, and tell us how appearance impacts how you feel about yourself.
Clothes are of changing importance to me, depending upon how I feel at any given time. This being said, a new outfit can have a great positive impact on how I feel about myself. I would describe my style as being eclectic, at best, haha!
An avid fan of charity shops and flea markets, I love shift dresses and smart, but simple workwear that flatters, rather than accentuates the lines of my body. Classic, rather than current fashions are more appealing to me. They say that style can never be bought, sadly I don’t think I possess a particularly “cool” style, but I think I have gained a basic understanding of what does and what doesn’t suit my body type, over much trial and error through my teens and early twenties!
It would be a lie if I were to say that appearance doesn’t matter a little to me. However, that is it, it only matters a little. After all, don’t we all feel that little bit more confident when we’re looking brand new and ready to face the world head on? 🙂
