If, like us, dressing up is your ultimate favorite pastime, then we’re guessing you also regularly get random weird glances thrown your way. It’s an all too common fashion girl dilemma: You step outside your bedroom feeling awesome about your OOTD (which took you forever to put together), only for your sartorially inclined heart to be shattered into a million pieces as soon as someone sizes you from head to toe, presumably thinking “what on earth is she wearing?”
We’ll go straight to the point and tell you this, though: You don’t dress for anybody but yourself! Below, six of our favorite Preview girls chimed in on how they deal with it whenever people don’t seem to “get” their outfits.
"I always dress up for myself. When I decide on an outfit, I have to like it first. And when I like what I'm wearing, it gives me extra confidence and it makes me feel better. So when somebody's not really keen on my outfit, I just try to remember why I like it instead. If I'm happy with it, that's all that matters." - Pia Wurtzbach
"After almost 20 years in the biz, I think I've realized not to care too much about what others think. If you feel good about yourself and you feel that you expressed your individuality at that very moment, that's the only thing that should matter." - Heart Evangelista
"Deadma. As long as comfortable ka and happy ka sa style mo, then go! Rampa with your head up!" - Maja Salvador
"I understand that not all people will have the same taste in fashion. People usually use fashion as a way to express themselves as a person. If someone doesn’t get my outfit, it doesn’t bother me because I don’t dress for them; I dress for me. I always want to feel good and comfortable in my own clothes." - Kelsey Merritt
"Well, I like it. As long as I'm happy with what I'm wearing, It doesn't really matter. I'm a strong believer that it's not what you wear but it's the confidence in how you bring it that makes it cool." - Kaila Estrada
"As long as your outfit makes sense to you, makes you feel great, it doesn't matter. Fashion wouldn't be fun if everyone had the same perspective." - Mari Jasmine
