You may have heard of the phrase “In Vogue”. Given that we have a multinational fashion and lifestyle magazine of the same name, only common sense is needed to understand that fashion is all about being in trend. It changes from season to season and with new styles replacing the old, constantly. In the light of this constantly and very quickly changing fashion world, how can you keep up?
It’s simple. All you need is a connection to the right sources, an active social media account, and of course, an abundant bank balance.
A short note
In trend, fashion wear never comes cheaply or easily. It’s a limited edition model sold by world-famous designers based on the season. Well, yes there are a myriad number of designer wear spoofs out there.
If you can’t afford the apparel you see on the ramp, there’s hope. Apart from mainstream designers, there are quite a few independent boutiques too. Mix and match is the way to go!
When are you ‘in Vogue’
Well, it’s simple, isn’t it? The term is generally used to describe a man/a woman who is in line with the latest fashion trend. While this is the traditional definition, there are also quite a few rule-breakers in fashion. Trendsetters and divas, as we call them today, make their own rules when dealing with the clothes they wear.
All said and done. There are basically two types of people. One, the folks who religiously follow fashion trends. Two, the non-conformists, who like to spunk it up with their own sense of style. Non-conformist or not, both have a tab on the current trend and stay updated.
Given the level playfield of social media today, anyone out there can hit gold overnight. You may be a normal 9-5 person today and a superstar tomorrow. The internet has truly made it quite possible.
