WEEKLY DISCUSSION: What Matters To You? Brand Names Or How You Look In An Outfit?

brand names

I am not one of the many who use price or brand names as an indicator of quality. Even if I have not had horrible experiences with expensive brands making me look like a clown, I learned from Economics that, price should never be confused for quality.

Celebrities all over the world including our emerging African stars seem to have high taste for expensive brands, thereby forgetting how they actually look in these brands.

I attended an event recently where a popular Ghanaian actress’ style was beyond tacky but from her friends, that was the all expensive Valentino and I dare say anything bad about it.

Either it was a Valentino or not, I do not think that really matters. What I saw and cared about was how dysfunctional and tacky the dress presented her.

But I guess to some of us, even if we will wear Gucci and not look our best, we will opt for that.

When it comes to style, the first thing I pay attention to is how I look or how an attire will present me in front of others and the mirror.  Price tags and brand names do not guarantee glam or adorable style—I have learned.

So let’s get talking…When it comes to you, what really matters? Is it the brand name or the way an outfit will complement you?

Whiles at it, can I know your favourite brand names?

  1. For me once I look good in an outfit that’s it. I sometimes do wear brand names, but I’m not too carry by that shit because I know so manyppeople that wear brand names and look a Hot Mess so it really doesn’t matter to me.

  2. I like nice quality stuff including designer, but I don’t care for them. As for me as long as the item looks good and fits well, it is a go! Designer stuffs do not make one glam. I don’t understand people who believe paying so much for item guarantees perfit fit or makes them classy. Being classic is all about the fit than the price tag.

  3. Why must words such as classsy and classsic be wiped out. This is unbelievable. I intentionally added the exta s in both words to see what happens with them.

  4. Well i do live according to my means, though am not poor nor rich am just average woman who works hard for a living. Fact that i earn between 3000 to 4000 with sweats doesn’t mean i should waste my money on latest trends. I do buy anything that fits my slimed tone body not because friends are wearing branded, so i should do same. No that is so not me, i think about the future and what i can invest the money in. Is called Sh3fata.

  5. BECOS SOME PPLE HAVE THE MISCONCEPTION WHEN THEY DNT WEAR BRANDED CLOTHES, THEY FEEL INFERIOR, THE DESIGNERS HAVE ALSO DECIDED TO SELL THIER NAME WELL. THESE DAYS YOU CAN FIND A DRESS MADE OF A CURTAIN OR A SACK WITH A HUGE PRICE TAG AND PEOPLE RUSH TO BUY IT IN THE NAME OF ” DESIGNER WEAR” THE TRYING WANNABES TOO ARE MASSIVELY PATRONISING THE IMMITATED ONES.
    FOR ME FASHION MUST BE SIMPLE AND AFFORDABLE TO EVERYONE.
