I hear all the time that people don't like to be fashionable. Mostly because of the prices and how much it costs to be fashionable but..why else is it bad to be this way?

Well, I guess it depends on what you mean by fashionable, but here are a few reasons why some people are anti-fashion:
1. Following fashion trends = following the crowd. A lot of people pride themselves on being unique, so wearing what everyone else is wearing, or wearing something because a fashion magazine says it's going to be the next big trend can seem like you're being a "sheep".
2. There are a lot more important things in the world to care about than what you're wearing. Putting a lot of time, effort, and money into your appearance (including how you dress) can come across as shallow/superficial.
3. People sometimes assume that people who are very fashionable, particularly if they tend to wear "brand name"/designer clothing are elitist (and for some people this is true). Some people use clothing to show off their wealth and they may look down on others who don't wear or can't afford designer clothing.
4. Wearing "brand name"/designer clothing can make you seem like a walking advertisement for corporations. You pay more for the clothing because it's a popular brand, and then you are essentially advertising their clothing for them by wearing it. This is particularly true for companies that have their name or logo visible on their clothing.
