One of the most intriguing phenomenon in the world of the average fashionista is the decision to wear something impractical simply because it looks stop-and-stare-you-wish-you-were-me cool. The biggest statement anyone can make involves the abandonment of practicality and reason with regards to fashion. For example, you know you're a fashionista're caught wearing sunglasses indoors. As fashion week is rapidly approaching, it's intriguing to observe fashionistas in their natural habitat wearing articles of clothing and accessories that capture the attention of photographers because there only purpose is to beautify and please the eye. I've decided to make a list of items that fall under this category and if you're a true fashion risk-taker, I hope it inspires you to take the plunge.

NUMBER 1: Sunglasses Indoors (OBVI)
The sole purpose of sunglasses is to protect our eyes from the sun. NOT. In the world of fashion, it is a reflection of our personality and coolness level. If you're Anna Wintour or Andre Leon Talley, sunglasses at Fashion Week are NOT out of place. Can you pull this off?


NUMBER 2: Transparent Handbags
Isn't it every person's dream to know what's inside YOUR handbag? It's not like it consists of all our private "feminine stuff"and basically your entire universe, right? This may appear to be an invasion of privacy, but it's still a coveted purchase for fashionistas everywhere. You don't have to understand it for it to be cool.

NUMBER 3: Capes
Let me begin by saying that I ADORE capes. They're the ultimate chic coat. BUT, when do you wear them? In the Spring when it's not too cold nor too hot. It can't be raining or snowing either. Basically, it has no practical purpose, but to make us feel like fashion superheroes. That a pretty good justification though, right?


NUMBER 4: Peep-Toe Booties
I'm obsessed with peep-toe booties and they are ridiculously impractical. Boots are intended for the Fall/Winter seasons, but a peep-toe bootie involves bare toes that can catch frostbite if the temperature drops too low. Solution? Wear them in the summer. You may be hot, but looking hot and feeling hot often come hand in hand.

NUMBER 5: The Micro-Mini
Sure, a mini dress is SO 1965, but must we stand for hours on end in our 5 inch wedges? Absolutely. A micro-mini refuses to allow us to sit like ladies, but that's all fine and dandy when you're a fashionista.

So there you have it. These are some of my own personal favourite impractical fashion trends. If anyone asks, you did it #forthesakeoffashion. And that's not so bad now is it?
