One of the truths about fashion that people rarely consider is that there's no such thing as a totally neutral outfit. That is, even if you put on a plain pair of blue jeans and a white T-shirt, and even if neither of them fits very well and has never been ironed, you're still making a statement, even if that statement is, "I really don't care how I look. Truly, I have given up. Fie upon society and its materialistic values!" That's why whether you care about style or not, style cares about you, and you're going to have to face it sooner or later!
Fortunately, most people do care about style at least a little. It's nice to look good and to attract the right sort of attention. It feels good to know that you can dress your body in a way that is flattering and that sends a positive and appealing message to people around you. Whether you're trying to convey your authentic, salt-of-the-earth self, or whether you want to project power or embrace the cutting edge of fashion, identifying a street style that's true to who you are will make shopping easier and buck up your love life - and who knows, it might even do a little for your self-esteem! Let's help you find the style that's right for you!
