Life is all about finding a place to belong. We naturally crave acceptance, and the easiest way to achieve it, is to follow the pack. Dare to do anything off the grid and risk being outcasted. This is the world we live in, and the natural course of what we do.
Why is this a problem? When you are stuck in this mold of what is "popular", you limit your own creative skills, and ability to think on your own.
When was the last time you thought about what you like without fear of judgement or outside influence? When we are kids, our intuition is raw, and it is easy to act without fear. As we grow and experience life, it gets more difficult to keep our spirits free, and think on our own. We are good at following directions and trusting what we are told to believe. However, when are we going to step out of that zombie trance and start thinking for ourselves?
Why does the world need you to be interesting?
Believe it or not, people are observing you, and your bold act of bravery, will inspire others do so too. In the fashion world, it is the "odd balls" that become the muse. They inspire creativity and new ideas. Challenge yourself and you challenge others, this is how the world should function. Don't listen to trends, there is no such thing. Bring something new to the table, and help the fashion world evolve in a more inspiring way.
How can you be Interesting?
Interesting is not to be mistaken as "being different, for the sake of being different". It is the ability to incorporate your unique character into your style. It maybe ridiculous, scary, strange, beautiful or weird, but whatever you call it, you should be one of a kind. There are no rules in fashion as long as you stay true to who you are. The process of figuring out who that person is, will be a guaranteed journey that keeps you interesting!
