Fashion needs to fit you, not the other way around  

Is it just me or is the average girl at school getting more and more fashionable?

There isnít a day that goes by without seeing the chunky necklace, slinky tee, wide belt combo a la Nicole Richie or Linsay Lohan on at least half of my classmates.

Everyone is channeling the Hollywood It Girl Style.

Or the It Girl Wanabe Style.

Not that chunky necklaces and wide belts are ugly; in fact, I own a couple of each myself. But what annoys me is the specific, generic combo of outfits worn at this specific time of year.

What I mean is, these fashions have been out there for a long time. Back in say, 2004, when they werenít as prevalent, no one wore them. Now, however, after a few Hollywood appearances, everyone is jumping on the bandwagon.

Whatís even worse, some of these new fashions are sported by people who donít even look good in them. Like those hideous gauchos seen on someone short, or skinny jeans worn on someone, well, not so skinny.

Of course, this is all in my personal opinion, and aesthetic viewpoint is going to vary from person to person. But itís true that sometimes, in the hot pursuit of a new fashion craze, girls forget what really fits their bodies and just wear what fits the trend.

The true fashionistas are the ones who dare to wear trends before they happen. They fit the clothes to the body, not the other way around.
