When it comes to fashion, we often think of super models walking down the runway wearing futuristic metallic outfits surrounding by blaring EDM and flashing strobe lights and flash bulbs, and we invariably think, “that’s not for me.” However, that’s not what fashion is. That’s merely one facet of fashion known as “high fashion,” and it’s not meant to be worn by a mainstream audience. It’s mean as a sort of work of art and a prediction of new fashion trends rather than something to be worn on the regular by regular folks. In truth, fashion is a universal school of thought, much like philosophy, that we all interact with, whether we know it or not. That’s we I believe we should all care just a little bit more about what we wear. Here are some guidelines about how to elevate your style without shooting for the moon.
First and foremost, stop going for bargain bin clothing. Walmart has a lot to offer us with its “always low prices” mentality, but, I’m sorry, style is not one of the. Hokey graphic tees are the bottom of the barrel in the world of fashion, and the quality of these items aren’t all that great, either. Instead, consider something a little higher up the ladder, so to speak. Even doing some clothes shopping on Amazon can yield some surprisingly stylish results. You don’t have to shop at high end specialty retailers to look good. You just have to have a discerning eye.
Another important element of stepping up your look is to simply look a little harder at your options. We don’t often really look at colors much anymore, and that’s a shame, because color plays a major role in so many facets of life. Fashion, in particular, is largely dictates by pigments. Color coordination is easily one fourth of the battle when it comes to creating a striking look. For example, complementary, or opposite, colors make great pairings, because they make each other pop. Because blue jeans are so popular, let’s consider the opposite of blue, yellow, as a possible option for a unique and stunning outfit.
