For people that use fashion for purposes other than conformity, it is important to have a thick skin and confidence. If one is not looking exactly the same as others, then he is going to be vulnerable to attention that is not necessarily positive. For one thing, there will be a lot of questions that people are going to throw at him. Women will go through similar things with fashion choices. If they dare to be different even beyond what they are allowed, then they are going to be under a lot of fire.
One example of someone who has had to answer some nasty remarks was Amy Schumer. She had to go through some body shaming because of the photos she has released on the web with her in a bathing suit. However, she has fired back with a remark that defended her right to wear what she wants. One common theme is that women are often shamed for wearing what they want. One thing that should be considered is that if fashion is self expression, then shaming someone for wearing what she wants is censorship. After all, it is everyone’s right to wear what they want so that they can express who they really are.
One of the glaring issues in society that people face is the search for acceptance. Many people are in need of self acceptance more than other forms of acceptance. One of the best ways to discover their own sense of self worth is by wearing the clothes they like.
