I've been seeing this line pop up consistently over the past two years, 'I'll start wearing black when they invent a darker color' usually accompanied underneath instagram photos or tumblr pictures with an obviously all-black outfit displayed in the picture. I find this concept funny, people claim to love fashion and style yet they walk around wearing generally the same things; leather leggings, black blazers, combat boots, tee-shirts, anything that creates that 'model off duty look'. I would DIE if my closet only contained black and the components of the previous list. What is fashion without colors, patterns, prints, textures and amazing silhouettes? The masses have adapted this trend of 'normcore'. I know, I know, if you see me around the university at all you're probably thinking, 'Um, you're always wearing sneakers, denim and a chunky knit , who are you to talk?'--I am guilty of the this allocation, however, even if I am wearing shades of grey, a button up or just happen to be wearing all black (such as this outfit) I will always mix it up with interesting shoes, a bag or maybe an entire bottle of self tanner. That way if I am wearing all black, instead of being cloaked over a fluorescent white canvas it will be more orange ;) . It is rare that you will see me donning an all black look. I'm obsessed with mixing prints and colors to see how they flow and clash. What has style become? What is style? If you look the same as half of the people walking down the street what's the point? I am truly fathomed by this. I love taking inspiration from outfits and people I see, but I would never want to blend in with them.
