Many people believe fashion is just about pieces of fabric and deciding what to wear every morning, but it’s so much more than that. Fashion is a reflection of who we are as individuals and represents our identity. And, even if you feel like you don’t have a sense of fashion, there’s a good chance you do.
So, if you need a little fashion inspiration and want to start embracing your inner Coco Chanel (or any fashion icon, for that matter), now is your chance. From Katherine Hepburn to Lilly Pulitzer, here are a few fashion quotes that’ll get you excited about your own personal style.
You Can Never Go Wrong With a Little Pink
Do you ever feel like you’re in a fashion rut? Is what you’re wearing every day not bringing you an ounce of joy? If so, it’s time to switch it up. While it may seem silly to equate your mood to what you’re wearing, fashion does have the power to affect how you feel. The next time you’re feeling glum — or need of a little pick me up — throw on a bright color (like pink) and see how it changes your day.
Your Life Is Your Sense of Fashion
Fashion seems like something only people who live in New York City are interested in, but the truth is fashion is all around us. Though we may not feel like we have a distinct sense of fashion, we all do. How we think, feel, and respond to the world around us is our sense of fashion. So, the next time you get dressed or are trying to decide what to wear to a fancy party, remember you do have a sense of style. And don’t be afraid to show it off!
Always Be Yourself
This is one of my favorite quotes of all time because I love the message behind it. The legendary Katherine Hepburn, who was known for her unique sense of style, is talking about fashion in this quote, but she’s also talking about being herself. Whether you’re trying to decide what to wear or who to be, the most important thing is to stay true to who you are. Why try to look like anybody else or be like anybody else when you can just be you?
You Are More Important Than Your Clothes
Fashion gives us confidence when we need a little boost and is a fun way to express our personality, but it doesn’t change who we are. In fact, what is most important when wearing a beautiful dress or a fancy pair of shoes is how you feel inside. Don’t get me wrong, fashion is a fantastic way to show off your personality and sense of style, but it means nothing if you don’t own who you are as a human being.
Fashion Is All Around Us
You don’t need a lot of money — or a lot of clothes, for that matter — to be fashionable. Though it may seem like you need the most expensive clothing or the new shoes that are in season, the truth is none of that matters. Whether you decide to wear a dress, a pair of pants, or your sweatshirt from 2005, you have a sense of fashion. All that matters is you wear what you want, and you like what you put on your body.
Hopefully, after reading all these quotes, you feel a little more inspired to get dressed every day or show off your unique sense of style. The bottom line? Wear what you want to wear and don’t let anyone tell you otherwise!
