What's Your Fashion Style? Plus a Sneak Peek into Upcoming Men's Fashion Post
What is Fashion to you? What style best suits your personality?
The answer should be whatever you are confident and comfortable in wearing. You can be a casual fashionista or a walking piece of era art.
This year we are seeing a whole lot of different fashions. I see people dressing in a 1920's modern style, 1950's-1970's modern style, and of course a lot of 1980's fashion. I have also been seeing a lot ofthe bohemian look the Aztec look, the gypsy look, the "I just walked out of a GQ Magazine" ad look, and a lot of skulls and cross bones usually accentuated with studs, leather, fringe and more. I love all these different looks but please be careful. Wear what suits you best. Take into consideration, your body type, your skin tone, your personality and what you love wearing.

The True Definition of Fashion
Fashion has many meanings but the bottom line is literally the final paragraph. Please read, you may find this interesting:
- The make or form of something
- A prevailing custom, usage, or style
- The prevailing style (as in dress) during a particular time
- A garment in such a style <always wears the latest fashions>
- Social standing or prominence especially as signalized by dress or conduct
Fashion is the most general term and applies to any way of dressing, behaving, writing, or performing that is favored at any one time or place.
STYLE often implies a distinctive fashion adopted by people of taste.
MODE suggests the fashion of the moment among those anxious to appear elegant and sophisticated
VOGUE stresses the wide acceptance of a fashion.
FAD suggests caprice in taking up or in dropping a fashion.
RAGE and craze stress intense enthusiasm in adopting a fad.
Any mode of dressing or adornment that is popular during a particular time or in a particular place (i.e., the current style). It can change from one period to the next, from generation to generation. It serves as a reflection of social and economic status, a function that explains the popularity of many styles throughout costume history; in the West, courts have been a major source of fashion. In the 19th and 20th centuries, fashion increasingly became a profitable, international industry as a result of the rise of world-renowned fashion houses and fashion magazines. – (Edited from http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/June 19, 2013.)
