Fashion: a prevailing custom or style of dress, etiquette, socializing, etc. Right, right, right…My definition of fashion is summed up in one word – EXPRESSION. It's the freedom to express one's personality and culture through apparel and beauty.
Right now, fall fashion is making its way onto the runways. Most people think of fall and the first thing that comes to mind are warm colors and soft hues. But today, it's all about being different, mixing and matching colors, pairing the latest trends and not being afraid to try something new. With the weather beginning to cool, outerwear and layers are making their way onto the runways. Forget about your bikinis, flip flops, and tank tops. It's all about boots, scarves, and sweaters now.
Accessories should always be top of mind! Throwing a printed or colored scarf over an outfit adds a lot to the overall appearance. Simple layering can leave you with a more stylish and polished look. It is a great way to replace jewelry, allowing for a warmer accessory alternative.
Another must have this year is a pair of leather boots, either ankle or over the knee. Trust me; applying these two approaches will definitely boost your autumn attire. These additions are just some of the easiest ways to turn a dull and boring outfit to something a lot more interesting and fun…not to mention, accessories can range from casual wear to professional clothing.
One very bold yet fashionable and popular accessory is the bedazzled detachable collar. This is a fun way to play up a plain shirt or knit sweater without looking too trendy. Other accessories that are making their way out to the public eye are cross bracelets. With their simplicity and chic look, cross bracelets are the perfect addition to any outfit, making them a hot-sell. A large variety of detachable collars and cross bracelets, along with other accessories, can be found on Etsy.com.
Two other things that cannot be forgotten are hair and makeup. The way hair is styled is like an accessory in itself. You can always play around with different hair styles to compliment an outfit. From all sorts of braids, up-dos and down-dos, the hair is also used as a function to help shape the look of a person's face. For example, hair accessories work well with shoulder length hair to make it appear longer. On the other hand, makeup is used to enhance a persons beauty. Applying makeup is always fun, and it is the easiest way to cover up flaws as naturally as possible. Of course, there are both appropriate and inappropriate uses of makeup. Too much can be a disaster, but as far as too little goes, you can never actually go wrong with staying all natural.
Today's fashion is all about being daring and putting yourself out there by trying something new and completely out of the ordinary. Staying fashionable can make you feel good about what you are wearing and how you look. Every person has a different sense of style, communicating to others their personality and character.
