Fashion rules? There are none!

The pandemic has been going on for about two years now and we’ve been on lockdown for about a year and a half. But now as we emerge from lockdown, we find ourselves wondering things such as “What kind of clothing is trending?” and “What should I wear?” The answer? Wear anything you want. 

Before the pandemic hit us, the clothing and shoes you wore defined you, especially at school. I remember in 6th grade (before the pandemic) girls would compare who had better shoes. Some had Nike, some wore Gucci or Luvuiton, and others had Adidas. Personally, I think clothing and fashion isn’t something that defines us, and we shouldn’t feel limited. Instead, it should be something that allows us to express ourselves. 

The pandemic has so-called “opened our eyes” and taught us to widen and broaden our sense of accepting people the way they are and to appreciate them for them. Now after a year and a half of lockdown, there is no more what is right, and what is wrong to clothing. And there never should have been. We’re entering into a new era, and its clothes are important — which is to say, as Ms. Slone says in her recent New York Times article, exactly how you want.
