Style is important these days and it seems like people either make too much of it, or don't give enough thought. Either way, what's missing more than anything else is authenticity. People are afraid to be original and seem more inclined to mimic the outfit of a celebrity or, to put no effort into their style at all. I mean, to each their own, but in my opinion, if you're going to put on clothes, you might as well put on clothes that YOU love and that express who you are.
I talk a lot about authenticity, I think it’s one of the most important attributes one can develop. Authenticity in life makes you clear, honest and fearless. You become more aware of who you are, more passionate about the things you want, and bolder in taking the actions required to get those things. Authenticity in style makes you bold and original. You stand out. Not like a sore thumb, more like a shining example of self-confidence and personal dignity. With authenticity, what you wear is uniquely you and it shows.
Fads and trends come and go, but authenticity is timeless. Keeping up with the latest of every designer brand of everything is exhausting and expensive, not to mention, it lacks any creativity. Be authentic and rock what you like. Rock a piece from any collection, by any designer, ever! Rock it with confidence and It’ll look brand new. Authenticity doesn’t mean wearing the same kinds of things all the time either. It means trusting your gut and your intuition and going with the way you feel in the moment.
Authenticity is whatever you want it to be and whatever it needs to be when you need it to be something. That’s where originality comes from. That concept is something that drives us here at HATer.
