A Little Background
Ever since graduating college and moving into the “real world” I’ve been in style limbo. College was all about trying out whatever trend I felt like, and building a style all my own. Once I started my first job as an engineer, though, I got it into my head that I couldn’t dress the way I used to. That was in part due to the requirement to wear long pants to work each day, a struggle when most of my closet was filled with dresses at the time, and the desire to not stand out any more than I naturally did. Being a 23-year-old, just-out-of-school engineer entering a manufacturing environment is intimidating.
It’s been two years since I started that first job. I’ve moved on to an even heavier manufacturing environment, and even being a couple years older doesn’t help much when trying to get a job done and not always being taken seriously. So much of what I have bought in the last two years has been to blend in, and it hasn’t always reflected my personal sense of style or made me feel comfortable with what I was wearing.
I got to a point not too long ago where I was at a total loss of what my sense of style even was. My outfits were simple and boring at best. I was dressing for function with no look at form. I thought I’d lost the passion for fashion I’d had since high school and I didn’t know how to get it back. But recently I’ve been doing a bit of self-reflecting and finding that my style has been there and evolving all along, I just no longer flowed it into my own outfits.
