It is always much easier to follow the crowd, not least with fashion choices but also with opinions; be they political or ethical as you feel a sense of solidarity and unity. Stronger together and all that. Society also reinforces this by the wearing of uniforms and strict dress codes for work and parties etc. Ironically, standing out from the crowd is much more empowering and projects a stronger more independent image.
There will always be occasions when we are expected to dress in a certain way and to 'toe the social line'. These lines, thankfully, are blurring over time allowing more individuality to creep in through the injection of colour or challenging silhouettes.

Happy New Year. New Year Resolutions? Any that you have stuck to anyway?!
Mine is to only wear and, consequently, buy things that I love. Investment pieces being key to this mantra. I don't know about you, but when any one mentions investment pieces it always conjures up images of wardrobe basics in classic colours that slip under the radar and can be worn year after year. It also implies a high price that you justify through price per wear. In short, expensive but boring.
