Fashion is a big part of our lives. It adds variety to our lives and gives us the opportunity to be creative.
Fashion is a way to express your unique style, especially in clothing, footwear and accessories. It is the art of doing something, being different and dealing well with others. It encompasses a broad range of categories like behavior, speech and actions as well as lifestyle. Fashion and clothing are a topic of much intellectual debate. It is possible to define fashion and clothing as the many elements that make up our society. Fashion can be described as a style or norm of dress, socializing habits, and manners, while clothing is defined collectively as garments. Fashion and clothing would disappear from our lives and there would be no place for individuality. The distinctions between social classes would also be lost, something that was clearly defined in 18th century and is still evident today. Also, the dynamics of social life and relationships would be affected by the extinction of fashion and clothing.
Mod is shorthand for’modern’ and refers to a young lifestyle that emerged in London in the 1960s. It quickly spread around the globe. Fashion is both desirable and satisfying. Fashion is a strong influence on our youth. It’s not unusual for young people to be attracted to fashion and begin following trends immediately. Fashion has a constant impact on society. Fashion can change our attitudes and views towards social culture. Fashion is a way to create new lifestyles and raise awareness in order to restore old customs. Students can make a statement by wearing fashion and presenting it to their friends. Malcolm Barnard states in Fashion as Communication that “Fashion has always been understood as forms of communication.” (39). Students use fashion to express their beliefs and feelings. Fashion is a means of social contact that allows for scrutiny by all kinds of people. Fashion allows them to communicate with the world their true personality through fashion.
Because of its jazzy and wild expression, the 1920s are known as the Age of Flaming Youth. This period saw the freedom and energy of youth reborn in new ways. No style was too absurd to be a top fashion trend. The world is becoming more global. Celebrities are an integral part of the youth’s lives. To keep up-to-date, students look up to their favourite icons. They can be easily attracted to a wide range of trendy concepts while watching TV or surfing the internet. Students also idolize celebrities and want to emulate their looks. To enhance their personalities, they try to understand all of the fashion trends in their community. They talk about how they can adapt new things when they socialize. In their daily lives, they use a non-natural style of expression, speech, and mannerism that is somewhat artificial.
My point of view is that there are two types: There are two types of fashion: positive and negative.
Students are often negatively affected by the fashion industry. Students are conditioned to think only about the latest fashion, which leads them to spend a lot of money. They are unable to see the other essential needs of their lives. They are constantly distracted from their studies. Students are quick to follow any fashion or style that is popular, regardless of how annoying it may be. They are also caught up in the fashion chaos caused by society’s impact. In order to follow a particular fashion one must take certain actions. Some students push the limits to be in line with their peers. They become hopeless, rather than being creative and suffer from depression because they are in fashion. It is possible to think that Fashion money could also be used for charity or helping the poor.
Fashion sets a high standard for students. Students want to look and feel glamorous, just like celebrities. They spend a lot of money and time to make a good impression. They often fail to make a strong statement, which can lead to low self-esteem. This can lead to a conflict of ideas between their friends and cause jealousy and a deterioration in their friendships. Students begin to judge people based on how they look. Those who can’t spend enough time on their outer appearance eventually feel persecuted, which in turn affects their confidence.
Students who are more focused on fashion tend to be less conscious of their studies. They believe that if they follow certain fashion trends they will be distinguished from their peers, so they begin to give less importance to academic careers.
Being fashionable has its positives. Teenagers who feel confident and valued because of their appearance have a higher sense of self-worth. They also feel more confident and accepted in social situations. Students who follow a particular trend can recognize themselves and meet people with similar interests and style preferences. Trendy clothes can indicate a person’s status. Fashionable clothes are a sign that a person is more advanced. Malcolm Barnard, in Fashion as Communication, states that clothing and fashion have been described as communication forms for centuries.
