Fashion is ever changing and its up to one’s choice to whether to follow it or not. Getting pregnant does not mean you can’t dress up and look good. Fashion is not only skin deep, it gives you the confidence. To me, it is therapeutic.
Fashion trends are different all over the world, be it Japanese, Korean, American or Chinese. Each has its own style and uniqueness. Thanks to globalization and adventurous designers, we have fusions and cross-culture fashions too. One may choose to ride the fashion trends or just stay in their antique closet. For me, I prefer to select styles that suit me and sometimes venture into something new. I would not say I am very trendy and dress like some models strutting down the runways. But I do love reading up on fashion magazines to refer and get inspired with new ideas to utilize my existing apparels.
One is never too late to learn more about fashion since it is so dynamic. It is not an excuse to not dress up and look good when you are pregnant, plus-sized or just a kid. Fashion no longer caters only to skinny models that we seen on magazine and runways. Fashion has moved on, far beyond of what we can imagine. Plus size, kids and maternity wears have been emerging and expanding greatly over the recent years. Looking at our global ageing population, I can see ‘fashion for the elderly’ coming up soon.
Toddler/ Kids/ Children apparels have intrigued me – how can one even make such great designs for such petite sizes? Many would feel that dressing up the kids should be fuss-free, comfort-first and “why the need to dress them up? They will look great in anything and they will not complain anyway!” I beg to differ. Kids have tastes for clothings too. Just like how my younger sister started being picky about her apparels at the age of four. Plus, I find it fun to dress them up! Of course we still have to consider the comfort factor in order to protect their delicate skins.
Another fashion challenge that interests me would be for mother-to-bes. Carry that tiny-being with you may be challenging to find the intersection of comfort and fashion. Majority may choose to drop the latter and opt for the former. But I do believe that intersection exist. Looking great naturally lifts your spirits – good for your body, soul and of course your baby. Being a little more diligent in looking up on more ways to dress comfortably will help.
