I was thinking recently about why people fall in the fashion trends and end up wearing a uniform in the meaning that everyone wearing red, jackets same style, shoes certain shape as per the last trend, regardless how aesthetically it looks, or if suits them.
So, there it goes, what is actually fashion – which I love by the way!
Middle English (in the sense ‘make, shape, appearance’, also ‘a particular make or style’): from Old French façon, from Latin factio(n-), from facere ‘do, make’.
My understanding of Fashion is – don’t overdo it !
Keep it tidy, if the top is oversized then the bottom goes skinny.
Wide trousers goes with tucked in shirt so you can have a waist.
Be very aware of your body type, don’t just dress for the latest trends, because you can end up looking ridiculous, rather then stylish.
Show your good parts and hide your worst parts, everyone got some of both isn’t it ?
Ankle trousers are classic for example – can’t go wrong with that, good hair, good make up, glowing skin and a touch of perfume very important.
It is better to look stylish than fashionable I think.
I like to play with colors and textures, but always try to look well put together. Whatever your style is keep it neat.
Nails, girls and boys never mind what you wear if your nails are bitten, chopped or the nail polish is half way – well this is a deal breaker to me .
Also shoes – mainly clean is preferable very much, even if you have expensive shoes if they are dirty and not maintained you will look messy.
I personally always look at the shoes and the nails of a person and can’t stand non maintained nails and dirty shoes. Rater go with no nail polish than with cracked and peeled nails, and clean those shoes for God sake!
I know that the majority of people can’t afford to spend 2-3 K for a handbag or a pair of shoes – I can’t for sure, but you don’t have to, there are plenty of good choices on the market.
Taste can’t be bought with money, looking like a clown in expensive clothes is much worse that looking stylish in high street clothes, trust me.
Self respect – priceless !! I see drunk girls falling over and vomiting in expensive or non expensive outfits – OMG!! WHAT! Come on, this is absolutely ridiculous SELF RESPECT people!! All good impressions and all the effort to look good are TRASHED completely.
What I am trying to say here is that Fashion and Style ate not only the way you look but the way you behave, the way you treat yourself and others.
Make your choices wisely, try to be the best version of you, to be able to gain respect from people you have to respect yourself first.
