How Not To Be a Fashion Victim
Posted on 11 March 2015
It’s all too easy to get sucked into the idea that you have to be a slave to fashion. We are bombarded with images of celebrities wearing the latest catwalk trends and magazines full of gorgeous clothes. The trouble is, unless you have unlimited disposable income, you probably can’t afford to go out and buy new clothes every time a new trend hits the stores. So what’s the answer?
It-Items for It-Girls
It-items are the ‘must have’ garments, bags, shoes, and anything else the fashion industry tells us we need. But in order to look good, you have to understand that not everything is going to be right for you. Just because a certain dress or pair of shoes looks fabulous on a model, there is no guarantee that you, a normal weight and size, will look as good wearing the same items. In fact the opposite is more likely to be true.
In order not to be a slave to fashion, you need to develop your own style. This involves not rushing out to buy the latest it-item the moment you read an editorial in Vogue or you see your favourite celebrity wearing it on the red carpet.
The fashion industry would love it if everyone wore the same garments, but if we did, life would be extremely boring because we would all be carbon copies of each other. No, it is much better to figure out what suits you and dress accordingly, even if what you like isn’t exactly ‘in vogue’.
Classic Style Instead of Fashion Fail
The problem with high fashion items is that they are soon old news in the fashion world. Today’s cut off denim shorts are yesterday’s fashion fail, so don’t be tempted to buy up every new trend the moment it hits the high street. Instead, buy a few fail safe pieces such as a little black dress or a pair of skinny jeans. These can be worn with a decent pair of heels and a few accessories.
Never assume that wearing the latest trends is the only way to be fashionable. There is nothing wrong with this, but it is hard to be original when everyone else shops in the same stores and likes the same clothing. Instead look at different retailers such as clothing made in Britain by Lavender Hill Clothing. That way you won’t have to worry about turning up to a party wearing the same as someone else.
Mix and Match
Mix up your wardrobe and wear ensembles of old and new. Buy one or two new season trends and accessorise them with older items or bargains you have found in vintage shops. It is also good to accessories your outfits in order to create multiple outfits from one or two garments. For example, different shoes, belts, hats and scarves will completely change an outfit, which means you can wear the same things more than once.
Don’t be a sheep. Dare to be different and explore your inner fashion goddess!
