Fashion in clothing, shoes and whatever one wears has become very important nowadays. People love to do endless shopping at shops selling top brands, regardless of their insane prices. And although people love to wear branded and expensive clothing, they are most comfortable in their pajamas — how ironic! People wear torn jeans as a trend and ripped shirts as fashion!

A few of months back, a top brand abroad sold online mud-covered jeans for hundreds of dollars and people went nuts over it — they fell for its uniqueness. Trends these days are just beyond one’s imagination, no one knows what comes out the next day and make the world go crazy for it.

But who can wear clothes full of filth? This is the problem with today’s generation. People want to replicate others’ to look better, trendier, richer and whether, even if they have to wear a top full of flowers/wires/discs or jeans full of mud. And they wear it with such excitement!

Doing this doesn’t actually conceal their true image, it reveals it! You think by wearing high-end, branded clothes you will have a wonderful image? No way! It breaks it! Fashion is a curse that spoils a person’s behaviour, attitude and image. It makes you urge for more and more expensive items and you do not stop!

Fashion is a stone that crushes the mirror of personality, attitude and your true self.

I believe that modern-day fashion is a threat to our values as fashion crazy people stop paying attention to what is inside people, in their heart and mind, and only care about what is on their body. Those who make these branded clothes are no more than conjurers who try to tempt you to spend your hard-earned money and make them rich. Think about it!

Life is just too short to waste on unnecessary stuff. Spend less on your clothing and accessories; try to reuse things and buy only when you think you really need it. Think about it! Fashion will keep changing, if you keep trying to keep up with it, you will just get out of breath — and cash. Be comfortable in your own self and personality, and you will always be happy.
