Style Vs Trend: Lookin’ Good In Hard Times!
I know this recession we’re in is fucked up and all, but history has shown us that a lot of great inspiration comes from tough financial times.
I think the same can be said about a person’s sense of style. Just cuz we’re all broke, doesn’t mean we all can’t be fly. If anything, I think one can argue that it’s easier to dress understated and dope when the purse strings are a lot tighter. The hypothesis is simple: The less money you have, the more classic and basic the closet will be. Hence, you won’t be tricked into buying full patent leather jean suits or skittles colored loafers. But still, some of yall don’t learn. And what you swear might be Style is actually an evil Trend that you’re gonna hate when you see a pic of yourself a couple summer’s from now.
