Am I the only one who is secretly relieved that New York Fashion Week is over? Did I say that out loud? Come on, admit it, you are a little intimidated by the Fashion Week madness as well. I usually put this much pressure on my wardrobe choices and myself only when I am getting ready for a date. Think about it. New York Fashion Week comes and goes, wreaks havoc not only on designers, fashion brands, and editors, but also on regular fashion lovers like you and me.
Being confident in my own body and sense of style, I get self conscious about what I am wearing just for those ten days. My Twitter feed, Facebook and reading list goes fashion-mad with instantaneous commentary and pictures from the runway as aspiring fashionistas spill over NYC streets. While all the glamour, color and crazy [good and bad] outfits are incredibly exciting, at the end it feels nice to throw on skinny jeans, riding boots, and my favorite scarf without obsessing over accessory coordination or hair styling (I am the laziest person on Earth when it comes to that).
However what NYFW does for me personally is that it stretches my fashion mind while taking my personal style to a new level. As a result, I [the queen of practicality] bought a white coat, something that I refused to do my whole adult life. Fashion and style as we all know is subjective and extremely personal. Here at Stylitics we advocate and celebrate individual choices, we empower our users to exercise their own sense of style. However taking our cue from NYFW, we couldn’t rest without providing an alternate point of view as well.
So we rolled out Style Profile, the first step in making Stylitics a truly social platform, where our users can choose what to display and share and what to keep private. You have the choice. You can be like NYC, which already has its own personality, but nevertheless obsesses over NYFW each year. Sometimes the city embraces trends coming out of Fashion Week, other times it chooses to stick to its guns.
Style Profile is about showing how your style and taste evolve over time. It is about taking a pause and thinking about what truly influences your sense of fashion. You don’t have to overthink it, or you can. I did. You don’t have learn from others, or you can. I do.
Now get on it and share your style profile with us. We’ll choose the best and feature them for everyone to admire. Maybe we’ll even have our own Stylitics Fashion Week-like visual feast. Who knows, maybe you’ll be inspired by a thing or two and by the time next year’s NYFW rolls around, instead of fretting, you can confidently take out your outfits out on the town! As usual, we love it when you share your thoughts with us on Facebook and Twitter!
