How Fashion Affects Us
Fashion is the most popular form of autonomy and self-expression in a certain context and at a certain time, of attire, footwear, accessories, hair style, makeup, and appearance. In its broader usage, the word also suggests a style defined by the fashion business as what is fashionable at that time. The culture is the main factor that determines how acceptable a style is and what will get the reaction of those who are the part of the audience or the spectators. If a style is deemed inappropriate or unfashionable, it will be perceived by most people as something that goes against the values of the culture.
We can see fashion from different perspectives. On the one hand, we can see fashion from the perspective of the fashion designers who create new styles and fashion trends as we come out of the common waking phase and enter adulthood. We can see fashion from the perspective of the spectators who merely observe the fashion and what is happening in the world of fashion. And we can also see fashion from the perspective of people who are into fashion and what they do to create new and updated fashion statements. We can also see fashion from the perspective of the many different types of people who are not into the concept of fashion as we see it, but just observe how fashion is being done, such as the housewives and the children who have no interest in fashion. But as a collective whole, we can say that the culture is the driving force that shapes and determines fashion.
In our daily life, most of us wear clothing. To some extent, fashion has become an important part of the way we live. We can see fashion from the perspectives of the spectators, those who just observe, listen to, and appreciate the way the fashion is being done, like when we go to the malls to buy new clothes to wear on the upcoming day. Or we can also observe the people, especially the women, who are into fashion and have their own clothes to wear every day to maintain a particular image of beauty that is seen in the society. Then we can also observe fashion from the perspective of the people who are into fashion and want to be fashionably and stylish as they dress up their bodies in different and interesting clothes every day to make a fashion statement.
