Breaking Stereotypes: Clothes


June, 11…. 10:15 am… Saint Petersburg subway…

One of the main subway stations in the city. The rush hour is almost over, so the trains are not packed. A typical gloomy morning. All people are wearing black, grey and white. They do look serious. Big Business Deals are waiting for them… Suddenly a girl in a bright dress has just walked in. She is a bit plum. Her yellow dress is making people pay attention to. She is not a fashionable chick. About 30 years old. All people have just stared at her. She is sitting down and reading a newspaper. She is not smiling but looks happy. And she really is. Why? Because she doesn’t care about stereotypes. She just breaks them. Maybe she is going to work, maybe just to see the city. She is a bit fat but she doesn’t care what people think of her. She is going to have a sunny day instead of a gloomy one. She is an example to follow.

July, 15…. 15:30 pm…. Moscow subway….

Moscow centre. Not too many people. A sunny day. The weather is very hot. All girls are wearing short skirts and high-heeled sandals. The one is wearing a summer dress and sneakers. She is about 25, slim and not too tall. An ordinary pretty girl. All girls at the platform are looking at her as if she is from the other planet. «Sneakers and a dress means no taste. No Moscow city style…», whispering all the girls around. She comes obviously from a village. But the girl is smiling. Her bright eyes are shining. She is happy. Why? Because she doesn’t care about stereotypes. She just breaks them. And she is going to have not just a sunny day, but a double sunny day.

Why have I decided to write this article? To break silly stereotypes about the clothes. Why should we break them? Because You are who You are and Only You decide what to wear.   😉

  1. I love your post…
    It has taken me a long time, my children are old enough to have children of their own, and I no longer wear dark or muted colours to blend in with the crowd…
    I wear orange… because I like orange and it makes me smile. 😀

  2. I see many Girls are wearing Sneakers with Dress and elegant coats now in Germany and it is Kind of Fashion now, sometimes it Looks pretty good !)))))
    I totally agree, we create stereotypes and believe in them instead of living without taking much care about our look
