Style Talk: Fashion Is Good For The Soul

Fashion often gets a bum rap as too flighty, superficial, or materialistic, but that is such a shame because fashion is so much more than just a dress or an expensive pair of shoes. It is its own form of art and artistic expression as anyone who has seen any look from a street style compilation to a couture gown can attest.

Fashion is also a way to remember to always treat yourself well. When you take the time and effort to do your hair, pick out an outfit, or put on a bit of makeup it makes you aware of how good it is to feel good about yourself. Whether that good feeling stems from the tiniest of superficial thing to the biggest accomplishment of the day {even if your accomplishment was just putting on a dab of mascara} it reminds you that you matter to yourself.

When you care for yourself in what you eat, wear, and what you do it builds a stronger confidence within yourself, knowing that if you can handle perfecting cats-eye liner or pattern mixing, you can certainly handle life’s other little challenges.

I recently came across a quote by Simon Doonan, the creative ambassador at large for Barneys New York regarding what he hopes for when he is 75, “I hope I still have my vanity. Caring about your appearance is very life-affirming for yourself…“.  This appreciation for the feel-good aspect you get when you care for yourself is what I mean when I talk about the joy of fashion through clothing, beauty, makeup and style.

Besides, if we don’t take the time to care about ourselves why should anyone else?
