I still remember what Karin Eldor, fellow fashion correspondent at AskMen.com defined fashion victim "someone who takes all the trends of a given time and ends up looking like a store mannequie; or to put it in simple word, absurd".
So here are some quick tips on how to avoid being the victim.
You to Define Yourself
Wear what you think looks nice on you, not what others dictate is trendy. You should always feel comfortable with what you're wearing, so stick to items that suit your personality and regular style, all while keeping the occasion and setting in mind.
More Do Not Mean Good
Don't overdo it. Even if your body type does lend itself to wearing trendy garments from head to toe, it's not a look you want to adopt. Buy several fashionable items every season, and mix and match them with the basics in your wardrobe. It's a smart and cost effective way to look your best every day.
Don't Buy Because of Brand
Try to avoid referring to your clothes by their designer label. By dissociating the item from its manufacturer, you will condition yourself to look at the item itself rather than by swayed by a brand name.
So remember next time, before you decide to purchase a new item, ask yourself if you are buying it because it's "in style" or because it genuinely suits you.
Watch Out for Zoolander Effect
Don't suck in your cheeks to look chiseled and never wear your sunglasses on raining day or no sun, or going for clubbing at night.
