" A lot of people have defined what appeals to their fashion personae and what influences their style and they always base it on they feelings and surroundings and forget the most important one ,the "temperature" it defines your weather ,changes the textures of your clothes and how short or long will you rock it, so we're that element sets what you will wear."
