“Fashion” is thus defined in the dictionary: “The prevailing mode in such things as are subject to change in form or style, as in ornament and etiquette, and especially in dress.” It is the name given to the prevailing style of living among the upper classes and the rich. Among the members of the “smart set “of any country, certain styles of houses, furniture, foods and drinks, times of meals, amusements, polite customs, and especially dress, are “fashionable“.
No one in society would dare take his meals at unfashionable hours, or furnish his rooms with unfashionable furniture, or, above all, wear clothes that were out of fashion. To do so would be considered odd and eccentric, or, as people of that class would say, “Quite impossible“.
Fashions in all things are constantly changing. Certain games and amusements, styles of furniture, rules of etiquette, foods and drinks, come into fashion and go out of fashion. What was fashionable in the days of our fathers is no longer fashionable to-day. This is especially true of fashions of dress which always means the latest fashion.
We the youth of today deliberately tend to change the definition of fashion according to different seasons. For winters, the more it is the attractive it is whereas summers to us, means, scorching hot fashion.
Summers are always special, not only for its soaring temperatures but also for the transaction of weather, food, lifestyle and of course fashion. It is that time of the year where you need to prepare yourself for the scorching heat and when your style mantra ought to be ‘less is more’. There is absolutely no denying the fact that it can go wrong sometimes. Wearing skimpy clothes to your office or stepping out in the sun in those itsy-bitsy dresses can damage your maintained image as well as your gorgeous skin.
This year the summers will get in with the colours of candy and fluid floss. Peach, pastel pink, mint green and aqua colours will dominate the scenario.
The flower rose is a big inspiration this time and the colours associated with it. The colours of rose will romance your mood and your taste buds will set in the coolness of aqua colours.
Silhouettes ranging from midi length to hot pants, the attitude does it all this time. Chunky accessories will never go out of fashion and will always be a girl’s best friend. So spend some good quality time ahead and line in style.
