Break the mold do as you please, don't waste your precious time worrying about how others view you. Life is too short to stress 'fitting in'. The people who belong in your life will accept you for who you are and thats what matters..this is true for every aspect of life. I'm going to target style/trends.
There is a new trend everyday and its understandable you want to keep up, but being a carbon copy is never going to be a good look. Learn to take certain bits and pieces for inspiration, add your touches to it. We can't all be; mermaid haired-spiked&studded-plaid shirt tied around the waist-jeffery cambpell lita-septum pierced-tatted out-bow tied up with geek glasses-& a cassie cut 'hipsters' OR gucci-loui-fendi-prada-loub-mk-mqueen-lim-wanged the F out 'swaggin', you know? If you like a certain mainstream style its cool but you don't have to do them all at once. People can tell when you're trying too hard.
I'm from New York everyone is from somewhere different yet they all look the same. Its as if NY is separated into two groups, you're either a label head or a hipster. Its boring. Mix it up. Stop dressing for approval. There are a few of you who've been dressing like this for years which is cool its your thing, but since 2010 people have been hopping on bandwagons so fast. Bootlegging is at an all time high. The point is, DO WHAT YOU WANT BECAUSE YOU WANT. Hell I've done more than 4 of those trends, I'm bald with blue hair right now 0_0.
