Being Fashionably UniqueWritten by d'Italia
In a world that is continually changing and moving at a rapid pace, one can only do so much to keep up with latest trends. From weddings to seasonal fashion periods like Australia’s Melbourne Cup Spring Racing Carnival, designs are constantly changing. In the fashion world, a style could be “in” for a period of time that lasts anywhere between a few years and a couple of months. The only constant about this world is that there is no constant!
Being unique can be a challenge. Therein lays a very fine line between standing out fashionably and being plain weird. So how can one ensure that being fashionably unique does not result in jeers, rolling of eyes and harsh criticism from the fashion world? 1. Be confident in yourself. Let’s face it. Even A-list celebrities get criticised in the media every single day. Lindsay Lohan’s dress might be the talk of the town tonight, but tomorrow, if she puts on a daggy pair of jeans, she will still be slammed by the Hollywood fashion police. Being confident can make up to 50% of the attractiveness of a person. How you carry yourself is almost equivalent to what you are wearing, if you pull it off with grace, posture and cool self-assuredness. 2. Check out trends and tailor them to your own style Keeping an eye on trends in the fashion world does not necessarily mean having to buy every piece of designer wear that comes out in the market. If you find a design or style that you like, tailor it! Dressmaking is not a very expensive or time-consuming thing to do. Tailored clothing ensures your uniqueness and gives you the opportunity to wear a piece of clothing that best fits your body, style and comfort. 3. Wear quality fabric The quality of the clothing you wear plays a vital role in comfort, look and movability. Wearing all-natural types of fabric can assist in warming up winter nights, cooling down summer afternoons, and give you the freedom to move freely. Fabric like pure silk, wool and chiffon also reduces static and when made properly, falls on the body better. Remember, looking good is also about feeling good. © Copyright | d'Italia
