|Some of my favourite sweaters!|
Next, there's also the comfort factor. During the autumnal months, there is nothing more cozy than wearing an oversized sweater with leggings and boots. And while that particular outfit might not always look like it took a lot of time and effort and is really well put together, it will still look cute, and you'll be extremely comfortable!
So, you might have realised that I have somewhat of an unhealthy obsession over sweaters, lately; and I'm not going to lie, I've literally felt the need to buy a new sweater, every time i've seen one I liked, so basically every week. Yeah, I know. Not good. Well, I blame pop culture. With pictures all over tumbler of girl wearing sweaters and looking amazing, and makeup gurus on youtube, who are my age, talking about their look for sweaters in silly youtube tags that I sometimes watch, (e.g. the I love Fall tag) can you really blame me? I always like to believe that I don't let other people's opinions influence my own because I strongly believe in being an individual with your own thoughts and beliefs. However, the reality is that other people's opinions influence my own decisions all the time- and unless you live under a rock, it's quite frankly impossible not to be influenced by pop culture; because the whole point of it is that it is what is popular in our current culture. Well, at least that is how it seems at my current age. Maybe when I'm older, I'll be able to let go of following trends, even if I do it subconsciously, most of the time, and become my own unique person.
Well, there's my rant of the day done. I knew it was a good idea to talk about sweaters! As you can see, somewhere along the line, I stopped talking about sweaters and started talking about my views on pop culture and how it leads people to sometimes make decisions that they wouldn't have made in other circumstances. That's right guys. I'm not just talking about buying a lot of sweaters, which you don't necessarily need. I'm talking about how young people will drink and smoke, or take drugs, due to what they hear in songs or what they see in movies.
