What Does Fashion Mean

Fashion does not always mean that, you have to wear what the others wear. How about thinking, I will make the world wear what I wear? You can always make your own style statement, is it not?

If you had this misconception that fashion is only for the slim and trim, then think again. Even the clothing industry has now realized that a perfect body is not what everyone possesses. So clothes that fit one and all have been designed and that is good news for those who wear plus-sized clothes.

Several new trends have sprung up in the clothes’ market these days. New innovations not only in style but also in textiles and fabrics have emerged.

For instance consider leggings, which have made a super comeback and are seen just about everywhere. Leggings of all kind like textured, of different fabrics are in vogue. Basically the layered look is in. The other layering styles include wearing two tops, one over another or sporting a jacket over a top and many more such styles. Capris are steadily doing better and long skirts are the top choice of women wanting to look feminine and elegant.

Another trend are the military patterned clothes. They stand out in the crowd and look very fashionable too. They somehow give you a feeling that you are dressing with a purpose! Well, the purpose here, as we all know, is to look dashing!

These days, ‘bold’ is the word to look out for. Bold colors, bold prints, bold patterns, bold cuts are ruling the fashion scene currently. It gels so very well with the bold attitude of the youth today, who care a damn about what others think and that has reflected in their fashion too. The apt word for the fashion today is also ‘shocking’, as every other outfit is different and has something unique and attractive and it never ceases to surprise you.

When it comes to summer, fashion in this season asks for sober and pastel colors. Floral prints are also in for this summer. And in the scorching summer heat, one is bound to sweat. Sweat not only leads to body odor but also spoils clothes. Sweat-resistant clothes or clothes that emit fragrance are a great boon to people who wear tight clothes or who live in weathers that are hot. This way, the clothes last longer and can be used over and over again without getting spoilt. Especially fabrics like silk stain easily and the stains do not go even after a lot of washing and dry cleaning. But sweat proof clothing solves all these problems. In fact these days, clothes are stain-resistant and even waterproof.

And smart clothing has acquired an altogether new meaning today. It simply does not mean dressing in a chic manner but dressing in a technical manner. Imagine this, clothes fitted with solar panels so that they generate the necessary heat to keep you warm in the extreme cold as and when you want. Simply great, is it not? And some clothes have high tech mechanisms to control most of your favorite gadgets. Can you beat that? Certainly not!
