Hello my fellow readers,
Rebellion is an act that can be expressed through many different ways. Whether it’s through art, music, or action, rebellion is always visible and powerful, however, in some forms, it is more powerful than in others. The best form of rebellion, in my opinion, is fashion. As cliche as it might be, fashion allows individuals to express themselves to what they put on and take off, authorizing their look to scream without making a sound, or make a statement without having to go to extreme extents.
Rebellion through clothing, or “fashion rebellion” for me is typically a slight or a major change to my style without any in-betweens, something that will cause surprise or shock. Throughout my life, I have been classifying my style as “classic” and “timeless,” and it has been true to a certain extent yet, as of lately, I have been challenging myself to take risks in my style and in my clothing choices. I have been playing around with my look by wearing pieces of clothing that I would rarely wear, or add more jewelry, which I was usually afraid to do. In general, jewelry played a big role in my fashion fears because I have always been afraid to overdo it, which ended up in minimalism. However, with the recent inspiration from Iris Apfel, I have been daring myself to wear more, to experiment more, to style better.
Rebellion doesn’t have to be violent or aggressive; it can be pleasantly surprising or daring, in a way one would never expect. It is beautiful in its own way; to me, it is similar to rejuvenating an individual, opening up their horizons to discover new perspectives, and all of that can be simply done through fashion, a form of art that allows for any individual to express themselves.
In this post, rebellion was expressed through my accessories and the bright color that is not liked by many, but loved by me-pink. To me, adding more bracelets than I usually would and going for such a bold, statement-making color is my version of rebelling. It expresses a different side of me that you, the readers, often see, however, it’s not usually seen in reality. Expressing my “blog persona” outside of my blog can sometimes be a bit challenging yet, it is always fun and adventurous. I feel as if I am rebelling against the trends, against the standards and normality. I am expressing myself, and there is no better form of rebellion than expressing to the world who you truly are.
