Yes, I'm serious.

Lately we are seeing a lot of perfectly manicured outfits. Clean lines and straight-forward styles are definitely at the order of the day, especially when we consider the whole normcore movement.

This style of dressing has almost become more respected, as it's assumed that at times it's more difficult to do simple very well. And there is truth in that - fashion editors and style aficionados believe in the power of editing an outfit.

But is it not a bit boring?

I am as keen on classic dressing as the next person (my go-to being a light blue, high-waisted denim and a white-tee), but then again, we need people who would wear a moonbag, a faux fur coat and a metallic pleated skirt with gym socks and heels, all at once. All. At. Once.

And I don't mean those who dress OTT just for the sake of it (often observed at fashion weeks). No, you have to truly believe, and be comfortable in the 'art', the almost magic you have curated for your bod.

In a nutshell, we need more gawkable outfits.
