"When I first moved to New York and I was totally broke, sometimes I would buy Vogue instead of dinner. I felt it fed me more." - Carrie Bradshaw, Sex and the City.
Subconsciously, we are all used to define “fashion” as luxury, covered in couture and sprinkled with glam. Our brain knows it’s not the deal any more, but you’ll be surprised to realize how much you truly are still under influence of 90’s ridiculous kind of mindset when it comes to penetrating into the nature of the phrase “it-girl”. So we couldn’t help but wonder – what are those qualities, thoughts and habits that will make us fashion gurus of a new generation, even if there are no cloths intended?
Exclusive model size and restricted beauty standards – these are concepts we barely ever hear nowadays. You and I are lucky to live in an era of complete beauty reboot. Our society is finally showing signs to extend its horizons and notice real beauty behind the million dollar ads.
Ambitious models that used to struggle living a normal life with their flaws are now turning them into signature style and becoming role models for thousands. While Fashion Houses are standing in line to pay them a fortune.
Every girl sees her wardrobe as a strategic weapon for long – term battles, yet not every girl knows instructions to those bombs of mass destruction. Results of such irresponsibility may be catastrophic. In other words your look may not only determine the fate of your next dates, but also eliminate their overall existence. At the end of the day it’s all still about meeting on clothes.
I’ve been shopping all of my life and I still have nothing to wear.
This, we are absolutely positive, is more than just a sentence but a potential threat every woman can relate to. So instead of cursing fashion designers while pulling out that lousy old pair of multipurpose jeans, take a better look through huge pales of cloth you already own. Trust us, you’ve never known you’re storing up such treasures.
Stability is the sign of excellence. Although sometimes it’s the worst thing that can happen to you, especially if we are talking about style. These celebrities mastered the art of fashion stability and seem pretty proud about it. Should we tell them it’s actually something to be ashamed of?
Don’t trust all those magazine covers and ad campaigns – being celebrity is really tough. How do they manage to look perfect 24/7? What makes those looks so flawless?
Reconsider plastic surgery and cut them a slack – everybody deserves a little secret.
Simple basic shirt doesn’t exactly sound like a revolutional fashion decision. Feels like we’ve already seen and worn each and every combination you can possibly create, using this clothing item. Yet, hot trends and deeper style investigation shows that we know practically nothing about its aces in the hole.
Fashionwise, there’s doubtfully any major event that can be compared to Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute Gala. Some people refer to it as “The Oscars of the East Coast” in terms of the concentration of famous people and their sensational fashion decisions. This year’s theme was “Fashion in an Age of Technology” and some celebrities just took it too far. Really far. Well, it’s better to see once, than to hear a hundred times, so here are the anti- fashion heroes of that significant night.
Can’t wait till long warm nights and sunny hot days hit? Well, you better have something hot in your wardrobe to hit back! Sounds like breezy summer outfits are nothing in comparison to complicated seasonal looks with multiple items. Well, if you really feel so – take responsibility for quality, not quantity.
Here are a few items that would be a perfect highlight to any summer look.
If you are sure that a couple of successful shopping hours can make your look complete or that the amount of clothes in your wardrobe is directly proportional to the fashion concentration in your outfits – I’m sorry, my stylish fella, but you are horribly mistaken. You can spend thousands of dollars on cloth and accessory, renew your wardrobe every season, but still remain horrendously far from the it-girl kind of vibes.
And right now we will figure out why.
