Become uninfluenced

If your style needs a little oomph and liberation then this is for you. We live in a time where trends come and go all too quickly and social media feeds are inundated with curated images of mass perfection. It's easy to feel overwhelmed and lost by the relentless influence of fashion. How can you become uninfluenced when everyone around you is trying to sell you something even if what is being sold is just an idea? How can one embrace individuality when we’re just trying to look like someone else? Let’s break down the art of becoming uninfluenced by fashion in today's world and extricate your personal style from the constraints of trend-driven conformity.

The first step towards becoming uninfluenced by fashion is cultivating self-awareness and understanding your personal style identity. Take a moment to really reflect on what truly resonates with you and what repels you and use this as a guide. Secondly, seek inspiration beyond the mainstream. While it's tempting to turn to social media influencers for style inspiration, true creativity thrives when we look beyond the scroll of our phones. Seek inspiration from different sources like art, architecture, nature, and history. Classic Six is inspired by classic historic figures! Hi! 

We have all heard of fast fashion but slow fashion is where you should be paying your attention. Invest in high-quality pieces that are timeless, versatile, and made to last. Prioritize sustainability, ethical production practices, and supporting brands that align with your values.

Becoming uninfluenced by fashion means embracing experimentation and embracing your creativity without fear of judgment or criticism. Don't be afraid to step outside your comfort zone, mix unexpected pieces, and play with different textures, colors, and proportions. Remember that style is a journey of self-discovery, and every outfit is an opportunity to express yourself authentically.

Finally, becoming uninfluenced by fashion means practicing mindful consumption and redefining your relationship with material possessions. Instead of chasing after the latest trends or accumulating an excess of clothing, focus on building a curated wardrobe of pieces that bring you joy and serve a purpose in your life. Adopt a less-is-more mentality, and invest in quality over quantity. And put your phone on Do Not Disturb after 8PM.
