The function of fashion has developed over the course of time. From mere functionality to status symbol to self-expression, the value of fashion has transitioned within a society. Although the importance of it has been present for a good number of centuries, the concept of using it as a form of entertainment is a fairly recent one. Going sort of hand in hand with the self-expression agenda, using fashion for fun is in a way a symptom of progress.
In other words – now we can wear what we want and not give a damn about it! This thought may come as second nature to all of us relishing in the fruits of our lady ancestors’ labors to have the right to do so. Societal norms and pressure to fit in prevalent in decades past should serve as inspiration to stand out and wear the heck out of that bold and extravagant.
MAKE OUTERWEAR YOUR FASHION STATEMENT
Besides the advantage of being more visible to drivers whilst crossing the road (safety first!), a statement piece of outerwear is a great way to express your style while you’re out and about. Regardless of whether you prefer sparkle or can’t resist the neon colour trend, the point is to let your coat do the talking for you.
SPICE UP YOUR STYLE
Don’t be afraid to turn on the ol’ sex appeal. Within a sea of tame button-ups and cover-ups flooding the esteemed editorials it’s not unusual to turn away from something a little bit more risqué. Play up your femme fatale with a touch of red leather or leopard print and enjoy the power of your femininity to the fullest!
DO KNOT SHY AWAY FROM QUIRKY FASHION PIECES
You must have heard the saying “be yourself – everyone else is already taken.” Fashion can be an amazing tool to make that happen, especially if you look for unique pieces to complete your wardrobe. Individuality is a gift that does not take a lot to be expressed. Even a slightly quirky shirt or a pair of jeans would do, as long as they make you feel special and beautiful.
GO WITH THE FLORAL
Florals for fall… Groundbreaking. No really, it is usually rare to see floral print featured in autumn fashion but that’s not a reason why you should avoid it. On the contrary, go for it! Flowy floral dresses and blouses are amazing for creating that perfect fall layered look. Go girly girl chic!
Play with fashion. Test it, taste it, leave it, repeat it… As long as you enjoy it.
