What Exactly Does Being Fashion Forward Really Mean

We all hear the same phrases time and time again, “You don’t have any fashion sense, ” “Those clothes don’t look right on you,” or “Do you just pick any clothes and create an outfit?” Fashion is more than clothes you can even go as far as to say that fashion is clothes, knowledge of designs, outfit preparation, knowledge of textiles, and so on. You get the point.

Being fashion forward is a much bigger accomplishment that knowing fashion. Fashion forward people are constantly updating their knowledge on current trends, new ideas, and always using creativity to piece together a unique outfit on a daily basis. Let’s take a look at some qualities of a person who is fashion forward and how this can improve anyones knowledge and perception of fashion.


One of the main cornerstones of any true fashion fanatic is the use of creativity in the curation of their outfits and buying decisions relating to clothes. Not only are the creative juices constantly flowing but a disregard for mainstream generic garments keeps a fashion forward person motivated to seek out new and stylish garments.


Reading a couple of fashion magazines such as Vogue is a great idea to give a general understanding of fashion. But in order to acquire a broad and/or specific aspect fashion knowledge, one has to actively keep their brain stimulated by reading books regarding textiles, new styles, and the techniques used to create many different clothing styles.

Being A Trendsetter

NO this does not mean that you will actually become a trendsetter, but is meant to say that you should never follow the current trends, especially if the trend has been around for a long period of time. Instead, using your creativity and acquired fashion knowledge to create an outfit is the best option.
