Current Jam: Honestly, I’ve just been humming all day, no song in particular.
Hey guys, happy new month, I hope the rest of this year brings you lots of goodies.
Today, I have come with a different kinda post and I hope you find it educative. Below are five things every fashion lover and enthusiast should know.
It is 2017, a with quite a number of fashion trends and fashion flashbacks. Style being a representation of one’s personality and mood, anyone can consider his or herself a stylist (because let’s face it we all style ourselves).
But before exclusively calling yourself a fashion lover or literate, there are a couple of things you should know (things that you won’t be forgiven in the fashion world if you don’t know them).
● FASHION TERMS
Just like any other aspect of life, fashion has its very many terms you should be familiar with. Imagine you’re in a gathering of ‘fashion lovers’ and a word like ‘Skorts’ is said, you should know what it means or at least have an idea otherwise you’d be lost in the conversation.
● CORRECT PRONUNCIATION OF DESIGNERS NAMESTrust me, wrong pronunciation of designers names is frowned upon in the fashion world. With designers from different parts of the world, names being their first form of identification, you do not want to butcher their names. As a fashion lover, you should not only pronounce designers names correctly, you should also spell their names correctly. (I’m still working on this tip myself)
● THE COOLEST FASHION BLOGGERSThis is more of personal preference, you should be able to list at least 10 fashion bloggers by heart and also say a few things about their style and blogs because fashion bloggers bring it all home, the fashion world can be overwhelming but following fashion blogs always simplifies fashion making it easier to follow and relate to new trends.
● KNOW THE FASHION EVENTS CALENDAR
From fashion weeks, to collections debut and many more. This way you always know what some of your favorite brands are up to all year round.
● FASHION TRENDSNot just current trends, but upcoming trends too it is important that you know what fashion trend is in and do a sort of ‘background check’ to ensure that you can say a few things about the trend’s origin, when it first started and the current twist to it.
With these 5 tips, you can confidently hold a fashion conversation without seeming off.
All these said, It is very important to always keep your eyes and ears down for any news and tips because Fashion keeps revolving and changing so try to keep up.
