The Role Of Fashion In Society

Everyone is a part of it, even folks that would deny it. Most fashion lovers don’t stop to think about the possible meanings this ancient social phenomenon has for society at large. Although mostly associated with trendy clothing and accessories, the term encompasses just about anything that denotes something that appeals to large groups of people at any point in time. Here are some reasons as to the wider meanings this cultural phenomenon might have.

The meaning of the term could include concrete objects to passing mannerisms. At some point in people’s lives it becomes something that everyone one pays attention to, as transient as it might be. It’s something that’s visible everyday and everywhere, and changes rapidly with the seasons.

Human beings generally desire novelty as well as conformity. These are social demands that fashion fulfill well. It makes a society-based practice of the need for newness, with many people participating in it. The rapid changes in what is perceived to be trendy is also indicative of the fact that people always seem to have need for things that are novel. It’s clear that this phenomenon has valuable psychological functions as well.

At the same time its manifestation also satisfies the need to be distinctive, the desire to stand out from the crowd. Thus variety and novelty go hand in hand, two human desires that anything fashionable seems to sate. Anything from the latest shoes to cell phones or tastes in music are suitable as visible markers of uniqueness.

In a way it also helps to sate the need for conformity. Everyone conforms to the extent that everybody has some interest in what’s new and trendy. It gives the sense that one is part of a larger whole, a necessary social-psychological mechanism to fortify against the sense of isolation from the rest of humanity.

It also has a role to play in facilitating cultural shifts between all manner of customs. It thus prevents socially-derived customs from being static, and underscores the importance of adaptability in beliefs, attitudes and behaviors. So in a sense it reflects on the surface a deeper resilience involving adaptation to changing circumstances, something important in the history of the survival of the human species.

It is also a mode of cultural influence. People with high and sought-after status like film and pop stars or admired artists are sometimes unwitting trendsetters when it comes to what’s regarded as fashionable clothing or even eating habits. Even subcultures of every type adopt unique styles as a way of socially marking its distinctiveness and influence over its members.

Universally cultures divided by geographical and social space use fashion as a marker of difference and uniqueness. Through it a social group or nation communicates its rich history to the world. Even among the same social group there are usually a plethora of smaller groupings based along the lines of religion or ethnicity that express a sense of history and solidarity through this phenomenon. Thus despite its transitory surface appearance fashion represents enduring social and psychological qualities unique to humanity.

The Appearance On Vintage Fashion

Fashion trends have always been repeating this is why some of the clothes that we wear today can be called vintage. Runways and stores are full of clothes and other fashion items that have made a very strong comeback.

One thing should be clear, vintage fashion does not mean that designers have started to pull some outfits from their previous collections and have them washed and ironed. They merely adapted the old fashion trends to the new guidelines and have created a new fashion current. In the past years people that were seen wearing clothes from previous collections were considered cheap and with no sense of style. However, things took another turn when celebrities started to wear items from the top designer’s fashion collections on the red carpet and to various social events.


Vintage Fashion


The ones that can be considered responsible for this fashion trend and the personal stylists. They are constantly looking for something new and interesting to dress their clients in this is why they started to raid the second hand clothing stores. Such a place offers a wide range of possibilities and the price tags are considerably lower than in fashion boutiques. This trend was so popular that at some point celebrities started to raid the stores all on their own and pick their own dresses. Everybody seemed to be so fond of this trend that people actually began to attend garage sales. The vintage clothing stores were also raided in order to find the best outfits possible.

One can say that the most interesting fashion trend that has re-appeared on the market has been the big shoulder pads. The designers who re-launched the trend were helped by famous celebrities such as Kate Moss who wore their creations. There also were some other trends that have emerged on the market and that have captured our interest, like for example: animal prints, the bold messages, the costume jewelry and last but not least the trendy handbags.

Each of us can create a fashion trend of our own or simply discover our personal style. All that we have to do is to find out what are the fashion items that fit us. If we start looking for the right clothes in the right places then becoming our own personal stylist is not a hard thing to do.

Men Wardrobe

Men have a wide variety of options, when it comes to stocking their wardrobes. There are many styles to consider, and fashions are always evolving. Some pieces seem to remain popular throughout the decades, and designer jeans are just one example of items that fit that description. They are versatile, and they work well for many occasions. When shopping for clothing staples for men, it is good to keep in mind all of the components that add up to a functional wardrobe.

While maintaining a sense of style is important to many consumers, it is not the only element to consider, when browsing men  clothing. The latest fashions will fall short of high expectations, if they are not matched appropriately to the person wearing them. A man who is advanced in years might like the styles worn by men in their twenties, but is probably better suited to pieces intended for his age range. This does not mean he must sacrifice fashion, and in fact, there are many clothing lines designed to complement and showcase the physiques of older men.

Another important factor is how clothing fits a person. Men fashion changes constantly, just as fashions for women do.  If a garment does not fit an individual well, it generally does not convey the look it was supposed to. It is wise to learn about personal measurements and limitations, and to dress accordingly. A competent tailor can be of enormous help, both in discovering individual proportions, and in adjusting clothes to fit them beautifully.

Men suits, in particular, can be very difficult to wear, if they are not given proper adjustments by a knowledgeable tailor. It is rare for a man to find a suit that fits immediately, without the need for any alterations. A good, well-made suit is an investment, and it should last for many seasons. It is usually worth the extra time and effort required, in order to ensure that such an ensemble looks the way it is supposed to.

Suits are typically best worn with men dress shirts that complement them well. Classic styles are often relied upon for their traditional lines, which work well in many situations. Trendier styles, however, can be just as elegant and appropriate, especially if they are intended for use with suits or jackets. A fashionable dress shirt can be the determining factor, when assembling an outfit that is meant to impress peers and associates.

When a man wishes to dress in a stylish manner, without appearing too formal or overdone, designer jeans can be a key asset. There are countless designs that are quite appropriate in a variety of settings. Jeans are now worn in a multitude of circumstances, from first dates to casual business meetings. People of all shapes and sizes can usually find jeans that fit them, and that are suitable for many occasions.

A fashionable ensemble for a man is not fully realized, without a good pair of men dress shoes to complete it. Shoes can make the difference between a look that is mediocre, and one that is stunning and unforgettable. Whether one chooses to wear a three-piece suit, or a simple jacket with pants, a decent pair of shoes can help to produce a desirable effect.

For some men, dressing well and appropriately is easy to do, and for others, it can be a bit more challenging. It is usually a sage idea to consult with a trusted friend or family member, before putting an ensemble together. Most wardrobes are best if they contain several key pieces, like suits for formal occasions, and designer jeans for more casual use. Most men will find that once they have acquired the basic elements needed, the next logical steps are to put them on, and to enjoy them.
