There are many occasions in a young lady’s life during which it is appropriate, perhaps necessary, to bring a date. I have found at times in these situations I have utilized men as an accessory to my outfit, as my perceived persona for that evening.
One cannot argue this point, as the man on your arm says as much about you to your counterparts as your well thought out handbag. For example,
if I’m going to a friend’s rock concert out in Brooklyn, I am not going to wear my Louis Vuitton monogram bag or bring a man that is dressed in buttoned up Ralph Lauren. Rather, I’ll opt for a retro vintage purse and man in tight jeans and Converse sneakers for starters.
I don’t believe this is such a terrible thing, as part of the fun of both fashion and dating is the ability to try new things: the funky chartreuse heels and the new mysterious dark haired boy.
This I believe is becoming especially true as men’s interest in fashion has become more mainstream and relevant. It is important to consider his look and wardrobe and how it compliments your own.
So what do you think — is it absolutely terrible to at times consider men as accessories? Or it is simply a single girl having a little fun and considering her perceived fashion persona? Tell me about the man that was the best accessory to compliment your style thus far.
