Why is having a personal style important to you?
How else are you supposed to display your identity? Clothing/fashion immediately lets others know what type of person you are inside. Creative/ fashion related people are smarter than we realize because of our interests. People who are more creatively inclined are typically more politically aware, in essence more intellectual, for example. If I see someone walking down 6th ave wearing a Vetements hoodie or a piece from Gucci F/W 2016, I would think highly of them/ be interested in who they are, versus a girl walking by in a Pac Sun crop top and high-waisted denim shorts with colored vans. Could write a 12 page essay on this in MLA Format.
