Who am I?
Finding yourself through Fashion inspiration
Fashion is a form of self expression- a persons outfit can tell us a-lot about them. A lot of people express themselves and their love for fashion by keeping up with the latest trends.
Trends are forever changing, so trying to keep up with them is difficult and exhausting for some people. You either love it or you hate it! However, people can be left feeling that if they don’t keep up with every trend then they do not fit in with the people that do around them, this has become a problem with young girls at secondary schools and colleges feeling this way. When these girls are struggling to keep up with whats current, they may be unable to find a style that right for them that they love, this has led to some people feeling lost and unsure who the truly are.
The story behind this fashion shot show the meaning behind “fashion is self expression”. It shows that finding this fashion expression can be a difficult journey, but once it is found it can help you feel more confidence with yourself!
Who am I?…
Questioning and unsure who she is. What’s her personal style? How can her outfits reflect her personality if she does not know the answer to these questions?
She knows who she is…
Confident and smiling. Her own style shining through, even in a college uniform, it’s clear that this girl knows who she is.
She’s confident, she’s cool and she knows her fashion.
A simple uniform transformed into a stylish look. A three tiered black skirt as the staple piece for this outfit, paired with a matching headband and plain white blouse. She also wears black ankle boots to finish the look. Get the Look:

Searching through Instagram, why can’t Kass find inspiration? Influencers like Emma Chamberlain are loved and famous for their outfits and there’s so many unique styles on the official Fruits Magazine official page, but she can’t seem to find any for herself.
What’s my style?…
After giving up with searching for inspiration, wondering what her own fashion subculture is? Will she ever find it?
Is this me?…
Is this Kass’ fashion sense? She doesn’t seem too sure, but she does like her outfit. A warm wool bear jumper, over a cute decorated skirt, with matching wool leg warmers.
