I have never really been a fashion genius mogul and all other adjectives depicting my prowess in fashion. That said, I appreciate really nice dressing. Myself I try to keep up with the fashion trends. Here is my problem. Popular culture is real and its impact in Kenya undeniable. I remember in high school I had some really nice sweat pants and shirt that I used to sleep in. Get that sleep in. now my very mature boyfriend now shows up for a date dressed in a very colorful sweat pant… maniacal. The mature part has nothing to do with his actions just his age. So sad.
We have become so susceptible to all we see on T. V to the point of insanity. We do not take time to filter through what fashion is age appropriate. The problem lies in the teen drama series we have been watching. Pretty little liars , gossip girl, 90210, twisted the list goes on in those 50 shillings movie stores. I hope you noticed the word teen for teenage. Whatever lifestyle they portray is for teenagers. You are in your 4th year in campus and you want to come dressed in unfinished tights and a Pokémon crop top with a red bandana on your head and pink sneakers to complete the look. My dear the chaguo la teeniz awards no longer exists, grow up. A girl in high school would pull that off nicely but not you no! no!no! it’s just not making the cut. Fashion bloggers you are the sensei to the art of dressing. Be real with these humans that simply means stop misleading them. Show us how to wear cropped tops depending on our ages. Do not just put a style out there without guidelines. Trust me I am proud of you so far. Kenyans are outdoing themselves in the social events. Blankets and wine masaku 7s you know where all social climbers and wannabes want a picture with a celebrity for IG, Face book, tweeter I don’t know, but that is a story for another day.
I am not saying that we should get stuck up on official clothing since age is catching up with us. I am saying let’s dress as should.
