The self-image of the twenty-first century woman has often been abused, bruised and defined for her. What counts as appealing is having a sexy alluring body. We have been defined by the clothes we wear and the designers that make them, don’t get me wrong there is noting wrong with clean, beautiful decent fashion.

But there are thousands of people out there who are striving to buy clothes, shoes and bags just to get an identity and develop a certain reputation among their friends.

The introduction of technology and social media makes matters worse for the 21st century woman, Instagram, Facebook and my least favorite snap chat shows a lot of vanity and have effects that show illusions of what a beautiful woman should look like.
The hype of big boobs,big buttocks and flat stomach has sent the twenty-first century woman under the cosmetic surgeon’s knife just to achieve this look and live up to expectations.

The commercial world has taken advantage of this self-image crisis and made billions of dollars off women. Each year they tell black woman they have to be light for men to like them then they tell white women they have to be tan to be considered beautiful. But your self-image should first be about you not what a TV commercial or clothing line tells you.

Early in life define your style, do you want to be simple, classy and elegant or wild,daring and hip. You could be either or both but let it be because it’s what you want not because it’s a trend.
