shondalanda / A Modest Proposal: Wear Whatever the Hell You Want

Written for women, but honestly would apply to any of us.

https://www.shondaland.com/live/style/a ... -you-want/
So I am here to let you in on a secret: There are no actual experts. No one knows what it is you should be wearing — not the fashion police bullies, not the rule-makers, not the writers of mad-at-pants manifestos. And I am here, many paragraphs into this long-ass rant about style shaming, with a modest proposal: Wear whatever the hell you want, whenever you damn want.

Another one in the same vein:

I found these articles in the top google results for the search query: “wear what you want”.

I really like the last statement of the second article:
Wear whatever makes you feel amazing, not what makes other people comfortable.
It’s not your responsibility to babysit the egos of others.
Quite true :D

Did you see some of the links referenced in the "Wear whatever" article? Pretty discouraging, like this one that mocks women for wearing puffy coats that are more comfortable/functional than fashionable:

If I could find a knee-length (or longer!) coat like that in my size and price range, I'd cocoon myself up in it and never take it off.
