After I've made "the realization" everything in between makes sense to me at a whole different level. I've never really understood fashion before. I would try different things and could tell you what looks good on me or not, but that's only a part of it. I've always made the mistake of dressing according to "the style that has become popular" when people that really understand fashion know that the style that is fading in an exponential level. In short, you want to stand out to get noticed. The trick is the futher you're willing to play this attraction game, there's a fine line between "weirdo" and "interesting". And its all about balancing how to make yourself stand out while finding something that fits your self image.

Case in point, imagine 10 guys approaching the same girl. 9 of the guys were wearing similar styles. Then there's this one guy that just gets it that wears something totally different, boarderline ridiculous. That one guy is so ahead of the game because its most likely that she's already seen him and have triggered a message in her brain that goes something like "whoa...what's up with that guy?" And you can bet when he goes up and says hi, she'll have more to say to you than just hi back and be interested to find out the person behind the clothing, compared to the other 9 guys that were blending in that when they walked up to her, they might as well have stepped in from the shadows and more likely triggered a response back from her like "hi...and what do you want?" because it'll be the first time she's even seen you. This is a good way to prove how not smooth you are.
