Fashion and style are two inseparable words. They always go together but it doesn’t mean that they have the same meaning. While a fashionable girl wears a head-to-toe Balmain Summer Spring 2012 ensemble, a stylish girl wears a vintage denim jacket from her mother in the 80’s, a simple white tee and trendy snake-skin shorts. They are basically two very opposite words with different meanings, sense, aesthetic and purpose but they somewhat go with each other. A yin and yang so to speak. And I will discuss the difference and dissimilarities with fashion and style.
So what does fashion truly mean? One word that comes along with fashion is trend. They continually evolve and change. The only thing that is constant in fashion is change. Fashion is difficult to follow with if you are not committed enough because it changes every decade, season and even weeks. The current trend in bags right now is the doctor bag that has a distinct structural shape and form, but as soon as the fashion weather Gods changes the season it will be put in fashion oblivion and all the fashionistas will have a new bag to crave for. Coco Chanel once said, “Fashion is made to become unfashionable.” Whether the current trends like a wide leg pants or a chiffon flowy skirt does not fit your style, personality and body type it doesn’t really matter because they are what is “in” right now and if you are a real devotee of fashion it is mandatory to follow them.
While fashion seemingly dictates what you should wear and what you should not, style on the other hand is different and somewhat personal. You don’t have to follow every trend that has walked on the runways or featured in the magazines. You have your own personal will and it’s neither certain nor definite because you define it. A true stylish girl respects the rules but knows how to bend and break them to match it with her own personal style and aesthetic. Having a great style does not necessarily means following seriously what the fashion world commands but it’s about experimenting, having fun and being you. Style is something that reflects your personality and can show the world who you truly are behind those cat eyed sunglasses. It’s about being flexible to any trends but you shouldn’t imitate it completely but add your own flavor and flair to it.
It’s your personal choice if you wish to follow every trend. However, if you want to make a make big statement you shouldn’t follow everything but you take inspiration from them and make them your own. You should be fearless and bold with your own style and most of all have fun, after all fashion is made be enjoyed.
Fashion is a thing which keeps on changing every now and then. But the question is that what you should do to keep up with the ever changing world of fashion. In today’s world everyone wants to look their best. People are ready to sacrifice anything to look great. But before rushing out to buy the latest trend in Paris make sure that it suits you.

Fashion changes with occasions, geographic locations and seasons. Make sure that buy from an online fashion store which you trust. Not only the clothes but also the hair and make up changes with seasons. A hairstyle if spotted by a celebrity will become the fashion statement of the year.

Today everyone irrespective of age love to make a fashion statement on their own. Even while going to the gym people want to look their best. If you follow some tips, you can look stylish without spending on expensive clothes. Mixing and matching pieces can work wonders on you.
As they say it on the hit reality TV show Project Runway, “In fashion one day you’re in and the next day you’re out.” Fashion trends change every season. What is in right now, like a satchel bag, might be considered a fashion faux pas next season. And what better way to know what it is in the runways of the fashion capitals of the world, like in Paris, New York, London, Milan and Tokyo than see it in an actual fashion show. A designer showcase his collection in a show where every fashion savvy individuals, fashionista’s and fashion magazine editors get to see a glimpse of what he has to offer in the fashion world. A great show ends with people in awe of his creations and they will eventually buy his clothes.
The first fashion show took place in the Paris couture houses during the 1880’s. It is exclusive for the crème de la crème of the society but in this century, that isn’t the case. In today’s modern time, everyone can enjoy fashion whether you’re a simple girl living in a small town or a full-blooded fashionista walking in the streets of Paris wearing all designer items from head to toe. Fashion is universal and it is for everybody to enjoy. One of the greatest things that we have right now is the freedom of expression, though some of us might look at fashion differently and sometimes mock it but to those who are avid followers of it, they take fashion very seriously. Mainly because it’s their avenue to express who they are and what they are. In fashion, you can be what you want to be, wear what you want to wear but most of all, you can be yourself. Freedom of expression is very important since it defines us for who we are. Our clothes tell others more about who we are since we can never deny it that first impression last. In our material world, we are judge by what we look like, how we present ourselves and what we are wearing. It isn’t dumb and stupid that you dress up and express yourself through fashion. We are merely the painters and tailors of our own lives. Fashion isn’t definite but we define it.
Vogue Editor-in-Chief, Anna Wintour once said, “Fashion isn’t about looking backward, it’s always about looking forward.” And that is the use of a fashion show, it simply dictates us what is in and what is out. It is very important in the fashion world because that it keeps the fashion industry alive. Without people buying their creation, it is pointless. But it doesn’t really mean that you follow all the trends every season, you just have to be creative, artistic and just be yourself and you can make your ultimate collection.
As the saying goes by Margaret Mead, “Always remember that you are absolutely unique. Just like everyone else.” We, humans, being in the category Homo sapiens, have something in common. We have the same physical attributes, we have a soul, and we have a spirit. What makes us different from other species gives us a common ground with our species. Our earliest counterparts had already the ability to walk upright and have evolved larger and more complex brains. We have the ability to speak and learn language and the ability to express ourselves in different forms of art. One of which is in our clothing. We make it our fashion statement. We also feel compassion for others and have a sense of religion, a concept of worship to a higher being, transcending the physical and the emotional to the spiritual.
Throughout time, it has been part of humanity to express oneself and to be different in a good way from others of the same kind. It has been part of human history to be unique, to stand out from the rest. Others who were born ahead of us marked history not just because of their significant contributions to humanity but on also how they adorned themselves in such feat. Take for example Solomon, the wisest man in the world. Jesus Christ, Himself, described him as “not dressed as beautifully as the lilies amidst in all his glory.” Cleopatra, who was known to the queen of Alexandria, the fashion capital during the first century BCE, adorned herself with ready to eat earrings! Talk about dual purpose. But that was her fashion statement and so as beings of the same kind, although different time, we struggle hard to be unique.
We may like it or not but we are shaped by our environment. Music, art, language, and even technology are some forms we used to express ourselves, to make known to the world our inventive spirit. Day by day, we have a choice to make. Choices range from what clothes to wear, shoes to put on, color of the tie, earrings to ornament our ears, to put on make up or not, so on and so forth. The lifestyles we choose, the sports we play, the places we go, and the people we are with affect our decisions that ultimately make up our fashion statement. We wear different clothes for different occasions. We event mix and match not just to suit our own apparel but also to compliment our mate, to fit in yet be unique from our peers. The gadgets we choose that fit our occupations, that fit our lifestyle, makes them part of our uniqueness, our sense of being an individual. Our choices now do not only determine our future, they determine who we are as a person today, fitting in but standing out.
Fashion may have a lot of meanings according to different kinds of people. The typical meaning of fashion to a lot of people is that it is what clothes and accessories are in today and those that are not. People most especially women get influenced by the latest and newest fashion show held by the most famous fashion designers in the world. Models are arranged on how they go out the runway according to the designers preference and what story he or she would like to portray with his collection. It is up to the audience to decipher the meaning of his or her creation.
In a fashion show, there is a runway wherein models both men and women showcase the designers newest collection for that particular season. The most famous ones are the summer collection or spring collection and the winter collection or the fall collection. Each collection has its own unique styles and designs that make it stand out and differ from the rest. But there is also a fashion show that is done by not so famous designers or those that have just started into the fashion making business. These shows also influence the fashion taste of most of the people.
Aside from the typical fashion show where models catwalk the designer clothes in the runway, there is also a different form of fashion show like when models just hold still in a certain area and in a certain position and the audience are one ones who will roam around and look at the different clothes worn by those models.
There are also competitions wherein they look for the next top designer from a pool of competitors. Each competitor will need to tailor his or her own design and showcase it in a fashion show. By the end of the contest, whoever is left standing and whoever wins the judges’ hearts with their designs will be named the winner. Another competition would be looking for the next top model by judging them on how they carry themselves and the clothes they wear in the runway of a designer’s fashion show.
But here is a good thing about fashion. You can make your own bold statement. Just because that is the emerging trend, doesn’t mean that are obliged to follow them. You can choose the style of your choice may it be in line with the trend or not. What matters most is that you make it look good on you by holding that chin up and wear it with confidence.
So if you want to know more on the latest trends and fashion in the world, you don’t need to go and see a real fashion show personally. You can see it in the television and at your own comfort!
Every girl wants to fit in. Every girl wants to stand out. How do they do that exactly? It is by making their own fashion statement. What is fashion anyway? It is a general term that pertains to a trendy style. Now, where do they find the latest fashion ins and outs? Of course, it is from the runway shows where famous designers showcase their most creative and new designs for the specific season. Runway shows take place every season to depict what styles are in.
There are two remarkable fashion trends that are seen lobbied in runway shows for 2012. They say that history repeats itself. As for this year’s fashion there is a reminisce of a time in history that has not been recognized for a long time. First is the 1920’s inspired flapper dress. This kind of style is a dropped waist dress. Fashion analysts and critics say that this kind of dress highlights the female body’s profile. The second fashion trend that is in this year is the flat heeled shoes which compliment the 1920’s flapper dress. They are also known as kitten heels. They are more comfortable to wear than compared to the high heeled, stiletto type of shoes.
The focus of this year’s fashion will be on the feminine side. Another fashion trend is the princess chic wherein there are floral prints and colors that range from pastel colors like baby pink, baby blue and yellow. But then again, you cannot say that he or she fits whatever is in for fashion. Certain clothes make certain body structures look great but make other body structures look bad. That is why it is very important for one to know what type of body he or she has so that he or she will know what clothes to wear to fit it.
The runway has a very big influence in the fashion world. What models wear when they walk down that runway will be the basis for the next fashion ins and outs. But no matter the trend, keep in mind that simplicity is the secret. You can pick one element that is in this year and from there, play around with what to match it. Fashion is more than just following the latest trends and fads. It’s more of getting to know your body, what fits your type of body and how you carry what you are wearing. Next thing you have to do is to carry yourself and what you are wearing with confidence.
The runway is just merely a guide in dressing up but it is up to you to on how you will express your own fashion statement. As the saying goes, if you have it, flaunt it!
