Have you ever thought about the difference between FASHION and STYLE? We have and here are our thoughts …
The fashion industry changes so often that it's hard to keep up. This cycle creates a problem for the environment because there is more waste and especially for our bank accounts because we are always buying something to try to keep up with trends. Once high-waisted pants or crop tops go out of fashion people get rid of them. The shelf life of a fashion item is very short.
If you choose to wear only what's in fashion because that’s your style, then wonderful. But if you feel like you have to keep up with others and the fashion industry in order to be worthy as a person then you may want to rethink your approach. Find your style, wear what makes you feel amazing and what expresses what is in your heart and soul.
day22 wants you to embrace your style and choose high quality pieces (preferably ethical) that will last and that will make you feel great for a long time. Your personal style will most likely be completely different than your neighbor but that's what makes you beautiful and unique!
