As always there are two sides to a coin and the same holds true when it comes to fashionable dresses. While some prefers branded and original designs, few prefer to go with latest and popular trends or styles predominant in the fashion industry at present.
What you wear eventually makes you who you are. People dress according to their likes and personality and this has stood to be true for several generations now. A recent survey that was taken suggested diversified results in this context. Originality vs. Popularity has proven to be a tight battle.
And majority of people who were interviewed feels that more than looking good as per what the society thinks in a particular era, feeling comfortable and confident in what they wear is more important. Most people apparently wear a style that they like and something that makes them feel comfortable while wearing them.
Some people suggested that eventually what you wear according to your likes makes the style all the more original. Of course, popular designs are prevalent in every era or decade, but that doesn’t necessarily mean your personality would suit that featured design. You might also feel uncomfortable while wearing it and compromise just to stand out in the crowd. Fitting of the dress is also very important. It should neither be too loose nor too tight.
"The only real elegance is in the mind; if you’ve got that, the rest really comes from it."
Looking good and stylish depends upon self confidence and right attitude. It has nothing to do with popularity of the style or the originality of the style. The best thing you can ever do is experiment with your fashion sense which projects a very daring and bold image on your part. And when you carry your style around with the right attitude, you can pull that desired outlook brilliantly.
One can conclude by stating that majority of people haven’t lost their senses and blindly followed things as per market trends. They believe ultimately, it all comes down to what you like and what makes you comfortable.
