I was impressed the other day. I had appreciated a girlís look and style for a while, so one day I asked her what she considered her style to be. I already knew where she shopped thanks to a conversation about a particular t-shirt. Her answer was quite impressive, ďIím goth-emo-punk-anarchist.Ē I didnít have a response to that as I processed the pink tips in her hair, the funky glasses, the black fishnet gloves, the Twilight t-shirt and leopard print pants.

What Am I?

Iím not only impressed that she managed to blend so many styles, including ďanarchistĒ which I didnít realize was a style, but also because she was so confident in what style she liked. Iím not sure Iíd have such a good response to the question. This begs the question, of course, does style have to have a name?

Iím just Me.

So, like many of you, Iíve decided to not take an official position on my style. If I want to wear jeans and a school sweatshirt one day, I can. If I want to don hot pink pants and some funky horn-rimmed glasses the next, Iím free to do that as well, although Iím not sure if the hot pink pants are the best option from all sides, if you know what I mean.

I donít think style needs to have a name. I think we tend to name different styles to help us identify certain looks, and thatís not a bad thing. If you love everything about a punk style and everything in your closet could mesh with that particular look, you would definitely be leaning toward ďpunk,Ē but that doesnít have to define you. You might dress like a punk, but play the flute beautifully and be working on the Anne of Avonlea series.

Likewise the girl who dresses in skinny jeans and a name brand sweater might be practicing a mean guitar in the evenings and writing her own dark poetry. Clothing is a collection of clever pieces of fabric meant to bring a bit of fun, warmth, and decency to our lives. They arenít a name tag Ė unless you want them to be.

Goth-Emo-Punk-Anarchist

So what of my friend with her many pronged style? She is definitely her own individual. Perhaps she felt pressured to give me a label for her look because I asked her for one. If anything though, I think she summed it up with her last choice. An anarchist is one who believes in no government. If anarchy were applied to fashion rather than politics, you might argue the point that there should be no labels, no fashion police, and no fashion rules.

If there were truly fashion anarchy, we would be free to dress as we please without fear of censorship, comments, or stereotypes. Given that freedom, Iíd probably just show up in my pajamas and huge sweatshirt every day. Long life comfort clothing!

Egh, most people just call me 'invader Zim obssesed girl'. But those are when they get to know me in the beggining. The my real friends just call me by who I am. 'Weird fun writer girl'. I learen awhile back that clothing never does matter. (I move to Texas two weeks before the hurricane and ended up losing most of my clothes and having people I don't know send me clothes). Clothing can very well express who you are or it can be something you just thought looked cool, I say this because I know people who live on both sides of that fence.

Great article!
