And in addition: do you really care about what the fashion obsessed crew really think? True fashionistas believe everyone should dress they way they feel, express themselves in whatever way they want via their clothes and for what its worth, the more unique the better- it shows you have originality. Wear anything with confidence and a 'don't care what you think' attitude and you will always pull it off.
Don't worry about what the think-themselves-fashion-police people think, their views have been dictated to them from magazines and other people telling them whats right, not their own honest opinions.
And I say this as an ex-fashion/textiles student!
