Do You Like It, Or Did Tiktok Tell You To Like It?
Tiktok is a style playground with endless inspiration, but its influence on purchasing decisions can be overwhelming.
Don't fall into the trap of comparing your style to others or buying unnecessary fashion items labeled as "must-haves."
A Look Into “The Devil Wears Prada” and "Emily in Paris”
Back in the day, people didn't have access to Shein, speedy delivery, or influencer affiliate links. Although not always perfect, they put together outfits that represented their individuality. In "The Devil Wears Prada," Andy's fashion sense evolved alongside her personal growth within the industry. As she started dressing better, it remained a true reflection of herself.
Emily's outfits are excessive but don't reflect her personality or interest in fashion. With Tiktok's pressure on aesthetics and restrictions, fashion fatigue is common. Dressing for personal satisfaction can be liberating.
Take some time to reflect on your personality, values, and interests. What do you like and dislike?
Maybe you like the silhouettes of one style, but the color and accessories of another. You can also expand your reach by taking notes from top designers and stylists.
If you feel like buying something, think over it for a day or two. It's best to invest in things that will last you for longer. If a trend passes on too quickly, then it’s probably not worth it! It’s better to invest in quality.
