What is fashion?
Lately all I can think about is this one question “What is fashion?”. Are there specific rules that apply, or is it just some adverb we throw around daily. I have noticed that because of the social media and retail stores, fashion has become more and more approachable. But my question is, can we even call that fashion? Do simple jeans and a white t-shirt represent fashion these days? Or do we just look up to the models and influencers that wear their daily outfits and think how cool they look, and that we have to look like that, if we want to reach some criteria that infect doesn’t even exist.
I’m really sorry but I am getting more and more disappointed by fashion bloggers around the world. I know street style and street fashion are very popular at the moment but walking through the city you don’t even notice the girls that are “in trend” anymore. They blend in and every girl looks the same. Even fashion bloggers don’t have distinctive styles anymore, they just wear what the stores offer and what they see on other influencers. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not trying to say that I am different in any way or that my style is so much cooler and fashionable. I’m not even sure what my style is. I’m still searching for my own voice in the fashion industry and evolving my style. Couple of years ago I wasn’t even sure I had one, I’m still not sure.
The fashion industry is really huge and changing almost every hour. What is trendy today might be out by next week. Are you sure you want to buy new clothes that you won’t even like and might wear once and then toss it away because someone said that it’s not trendy anymore? I’m not sure I want to be a part of this. I’m sitting in a cafe, writing this post in my new jeans jacket and all black attire and I’m feeling great because I think my outfit is very cute and casual, but I’m not going to make a new fashion blog post about it because that is not fashion to me. Fashion is much more, it’s not a collection of basic pieces on super fit bodies. Fashion is art, and you can’t wear art on a daily basis.
