“Who,” Rather than “What”

The Sartorialist (a fashion blog) has a beautiful post today about an androgynous image:

Often I read comments on this blog like “Shouldn’t clothing enhance a woman’s form and femininity? ” or something of that nature.

I think this is a very narrow view of what clothing should/could do for a person.

Clothing only needs to keep you protected from the elements, past that what you do with them is your option.

This young lady is a great example of self-expression and intellectual dressing.

Nothing she is wearing really speaks to WHAT she is physically ( fat or skinny, tall or short, male or female) but her look speaks volumes about WHO she is mentally.

Is this fashion? I don’t know but it surely is an extremely evolved version of self-expression.

Bravo!

See the image.

    Ok, massively old post, but as I’m currently raking through the archives, I just wanted to say I love this!

    “Clothing only needs to keep you protected from the elements, past that what you do with them is your option.”
    - I might print that out and stick it on my mirror :D

Be nice. Judgmental comments will be quietly deleted and blacklisted. There's plenty of room for those elsewhere on the web.
