When you drop a stone in a serene pond it creates a ripple effect on the water that can go from one end of the pond to the other if the force of the stone is strong enough. A collective of the ripples then create a pattern. A similar thing happens when you wear certain clothing. You create a ripple in the sea of people that are dressed a like. In a group effort to be so different we have managed to look more alike than ever before. So when someone different actually appears that presence is much like that stone in the pond causing ripples to go through the stagnant sea.
I like to look at clothing as an expression of the person wearing it. You can tell whether the wearer is really into style or if the article of clothing was just purchased because everyone is wearing it just by paying attention to small details. You can tell if someone really cares for a certain clothing line or if they just want to wear it because everyone else thinks it’s cool.
