Expecting the Unexpected
When a new trend is picked up from either two fashion capitals of the US (Los Angeles, and New York) how do you respond? Do you automatically reflect the same image you see everyone else is representing? Or do you take it upon yourself to use your influential personality to drive your sense of style? Hoepfully you thought the latter of the two options was much smarter. It’s more challenging to use your creative juices to try to make a style that no one has created (using the same trends). However, thats the beauty of it! If everyone thought alike, then our sense of style would obviously be the same. Make it YOUR obligation to think outside the box in order to change the fashion game and your view of what fashion means to you.
It’s no question that Wiz Khalifa takes chances, both Fashion-wise and career wise, but you can’t never get where you want to be without taking any chances. How does Wiz inspire your fashion style? Would he be considered a “Fashion innovator” in your eyes?
