It's an outright lie when people say they don't care what other people think, especially if they are talking about their style. Now there is a difference between caring what people think and accepting what people think, and I think that's where we usually get lost in between.
When someone flaunts a personal style, they definitely care about what others think. That's why they have a style! Sure, you can wear something for your own pleasure, but the point of fashion is to tell your story to others. Fashion can tell people who you are, who you like to pretend to be, or who you want to be. It's up to you to find your personal style, even if your personality does not match it yet. But the point of it all is to communicate to the world. So don't tell me you don't want attention.
Accepting what people think and being able to handle any opinions they might have about you is real confidence. If you feel the need to explain or defend your style to a critic, you probably felt uncomfortable wearing it before anyone said anything.
I think that is why fashion bloggers, designers and models feel the most comfortable with the styles that really stand out. They can wear it, feel completely comfortable and they like every reaction, no matter if it is bad or good. They know they don't owe anyone an explanation for their style.
Not everyone can feel confident wearing this bold red with fringe.
Rumi's style is always wearing slip like dresses as day wear. Sexy but risky.
Most girls would feel uncomfortable wearing such an open top.
Wengie is one example of a fashion blogger who likes dying her hair in unique colors.
You have to have real confidence to pull off these leather leggings. Kristina definitely does!
It's more about your mindset rather than the clothes you wear it the hairstyle you have. People can see when you are not comfortable with your look. Most of the time, they will not critize you if you hold your style well in confidence brimming from your aura.
