10 Things You’ll Only Understand If You Don’t Have A Mainstream Sense Of Style

I’ve always had a slightly offbeat sense of style. I mean, not that long ago in high school I was rocking bright neon tights with rainbow checkered skirts and weird graphic tees. I’m not quite wearing that now, but I am rocking pink jellies, ultra ’80s shoulder padded blouses, and and DIY denim jackets. While I’d like to think that my style has improved, it still has its roots in being a little weird, a little wacky, and a little rebellious.

There are so many different types of not-so-trendy types of style, but there are definitely a few commonalities between all of them. Here are 10 things you’ll understand if you don’t have a mainstream sense of style.

1. You’ve definitely experienced people staring at you because of your outfit.



2. As much as you like your wacky style, you look back at some of your outfits and seriously cringe.

3. Your closet is such a weird combination of clothes.

9.  You’ve had to deal with someone straight up telling you that your outfit is weird.
