How Does Fast Fashion Affect Clothing Choices?

Fashion is a very broad term that refers to many different things from trends in dressing to changes in hairstyle or even color. It is considered a style of dressing by many people today. However, fashion is not just about what is popular. Trends in dressing are influenced by societal views on beauty. However, in recent times, fashion has also become a kind of artform that can be used to express personal preferences, or to make a statement about cultural differences, class, or identity.

FASHION: Fashions are generally identified by their underlying trend. When considering how various styles exist without style, one must remember that “style” can be a complex idea with many sub-types. Fashions are normally separated into four categories: “serious”, “sexy/naughty” (think scantily clad supermodels), “homegoing” and “street”. Different styles may be associated with different time periods or social milieu.

LIVING WAY OF DEALING: This refers to how clothes are worn for practical reasons by people who live in a certain area or who have certain cultural or geographical backgrounds. Such clothes generally reflect the way people lived in the past, as well as their daily lives at the time of wearing them. Therefore, clothes that were common in the eighteenth and nineteenth century may no longer be considered as being fashionable. On the contrary, a fashion designer might consider a garment that was popular in the eighteenth century to be a sign of beauty or sexuality in the twentieth century.

ESSENTIAL FOR ALL: In the early nineteenth century, clothing was considered a necessary means of an individual’s existence. The term originally referred to the clothing of wealthy persons. In the late twentieth century, however, it has become more flexible, referring to any type of dress that is considered essential by society. The clothing styles of haute couture are always in vogue because they represent an attitude that is considered innovative and progressive.

ON THE EURASTERING: Fashion trends usually follow the seasons. Spring, summer and fall are considered as the “peak” seasons of the fashion industry. Autumns and winters are considered as “medium” seasons since they can still accommodate a wide range of fashion trends. Therefore, clothing choices for winter and autumn should always be based on cold weather considerations.

Worn clothes by celebrities may be popular among people, but they are not actually worn by real people in any given day. Celebrities make a living by selling worn clothes, but in the end, it is the real people who benefit from them. For this reason, it is imperative for fast fashion companies to support social causes and provide affordable, high quality clothes for everyone to use.
