Personal Expression: Are We Too Quick To Judge?
BY The Conversation Team
If you saw our latest episode with Ashley Madekwe, you know that this week’s conversation is all about expressing yourself through fashion. In her interview, Ashley speaks of the style shaming she has sometimes experienced. “If an attractive woman wears a pair of heels in the day time she can be frowned upon by other women,” she says, “like it’s not appropriate to dress like that all the time.”
The freedom to dress as one wishes is a virtue designer Sophie Theallet mentions in her interview with Soraya Dayani. She admires women who have an air of nonchalance and who are free, “to be able to express sensuality in other ways other than what they wear. To also know their bodies and to be clever with it, that’s freedom.”
Do you ever feel judged by other women when expressing your personal style? Do you think we, as women, judge each other too harshly?
