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 clothing, knowledge of designs, outfit preparation, knowledge of textiles, and so on. You get the point. But there is not any exact rules that women should follow other than mostly just follow each other.
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. Also, once your fashion knowledge becomes more advanced, the possibilities and inspiration become endless and more creative. 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. More creativity just equals more possibilities with regard to your outfits.
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. Also, when a person becomes really knowledgeable about fashion fundamentals and styles, they can become a teacher to their peers and help their fashion sense.
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.
Some outfits might not get a positive reception but sooner of later one of you outfits will become a hit amongst family and friends. Who knows, people who see the outfit might begin to follow your lead and wear something similar.
