Don’t get caught up in the circus
Fashion people have a tendency to turn their noses up at simplicity and pass it off as pedestrian and mundane. This may be because of the message that fashion advertising sends–that accessories and patterns are what make fashion. Although accessorizing and layering can be appealing images, people forget that simplicity is one of the great virtues of modern fashion. Think of the philosophies of icons like Coco Chanel, Calvin Klein and Donna Karen–simplicity is an image of modernity.
Confidence shines the most in simplicity
When you strip away the distractions, you arrive at a person’s core. The raw image of minimalist fashion radiates very potent energy. That is why Calvin Klein advertisements are so compelling; the images of a model like Kate Moss in simple jeans produces a modern type of beauty. For so long, women were influenced to be abundantly ornate: influenced to wear heavy makeup, have intricately styled hair and wear painfully tight corsets. As the status of women grew in the last century, their image developed into clean and straightforward styles. The ultimate symbols of female status are the likes of Coco Chanel, Calvin Klein and DKNY. They capture the essences that are required in contemporary successful women: which are confidence, independence and drive. A simple dress, a one colored suit or a jeans and t-shirt combination is an “in your face” statement of empowerment. It means that a girl doesn’t need to do anything to impress anyone or to use her image for approval. Her skills and abilities are where her true value lies; and that is what simple fashion demonstrates.
Young people should dress in simple clothing; they are beautiful enough and don’t need any distractions
Since business like to target the impressionable youth demographic, young people tend to get caught up in the circus of fashion messaging. They buy into the hype of bags, jewelry, flashy coats and boots. Although there is room for those trendy items in fashion, they habitually neglect their natural youthful beauty. It is such a special time to be young. Your face and your body are at the pinnacle of their conditions. Distracting fashion can take away from your youthful vibe. Going to public places and seeing girls in flashy belts, boots and frilled tops can be distasteful. It gives the impression of a kid that is desperate for approval and attention. Young people should take the time to embrace their youth and just forget about high fashion. Letting their abundance of energy and healthy smiles is more attractive.
