While I was going through my old pictures for my blog post research “how my fashion style evolved over the years” I could not stop laughing just of how I used to think, I was stylish and nobody could tell me anything about the latest fashion trends. I thought I knew everything about the latest fashion dresses, latest ladies fashion and everything that has to do about the latest fashion. Little did I know how my fashion style was about to evolve into the woman I am now.
I remember when my friend gifted me with the above denim Jumpsuit. I used to check the trendy fashion shops online and see what fashion bloggers were wearing at that year, 2012. I was still learning about the fashion world at that time and I made a lot of mistakes when it comes to the latest fashion trends for women especially in South Africa. A lot of South african fashion bloggers were in short dresses and short clothing items.
Monochrome was the latest fashion trend in 2013. At that time my friend and I used to own the latest fashion clothes and shopping every week just to have the latest fashion style.
I slowly started falling in love with black clothing in 2014, it did not matter if it was the dresses, pants or jumpsuits. I was all black at that time. I remember mom thought I was mourning for someone.
I went to stay home for 3 months after my tertiary years and my sister introduced me to bright colours, especially dresses. How my fashion style evolved over the years with her, she was always dress up into dresses and skirts. She never used to wear pants, only recently she started adding more variety to her fashion style.
2015 was the exploration year. I was done with tertiary and had my first job.That time I was playing around with different fashion styles. This was the year where I started feeling comfortable with my fashion clothes and I was doing my research about South african fashion trends. I was meeting different fashion influencers every time I was going out. I remember meeting according to Jerry for the first time and he had a unique fashion style and that really inspired by him.
Year: 2016 Battling with depression
Year: 2017 recovering from depression
Year 2018: I am a student of life, I never stop learning just because I feel like I am comfortable with my fashion style. I still want to push boundaries and learn more about the fashion industry. I don’t think a person can ever stop learning about clothing style as it keeps on evolving to something new.
Please share with me your stories on how your fashion style has evolved over the years . You can also post your before and after pictures of your fashion style. Much love.
