See the most common myths associated with fashion trends today

Fashion is pop culture, its wearable art; it’s entertaining and it is so ahead of its time as it reinvents its self time and time. But fashion has been criticized, abused and misunderstood so much that many believe it is a major drain on your wallet.

Fashion have been tagged with cost, body size, spending power, trends, and names among others

The criticism has become widespread that PN Lifestyle decided to shed some light on some of the most common myths associated with fashion and style.

  1. Looking good will cost a fortune

We agree high trends like H&M, Zara, Gucci and Prada among others worth a fortune, but you don’t have to own the big names to be fashionable. If you really have a craving for the big stuff, you could as well buy them on sale when there are a lot cheaper or better yet get items that rival the looks of designers charging a fortune for their wares.

Fashion is a statement that should not cost a fortune, the idea is to be simple and cohesive and most importantly be comfortable in whatever you are wearing. So we totally disagree with the notion that you have to spend a fortune to be look your best.

  1. Brand names matter

This is very typical of girls these days, when you don’t own a brand name, you are out of style but this is false. These fashion trends matter only as much as you want them to. You don’t have to buy an item simply because of its ubiquity, like people do these days. Instead look to brands for what they do best and the need they meet, and not the names.

Fashion is instant language; the way you dress is the way you’ll be address. Come out smart, neat, decent and see how well you’ll be received. The difference between style and fashion is quality, not the big labels you have on.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  1. Skinny is more fashionable

You don’t need to be skinny to be stylish. Even the fashion industry is trying to kill this misconception. A lot of bold and beautiful women are walking the world’s runways.

Fashion is architecture, size does not matter anymore it.

  1. The more bling the better

If you are not an entertainer performing on stage (no disrespect) then you have no reason whatsoever looking like a clown. Its okay to mix and match items to pull off a new look. Over-doing it however, is downright one of the worst fashion mistakes ever and probably something you should avoid. You mustn’t shine like a mini asteroid storm to be fashionable. The right proportion of everything is perfect.

  1. Men’s fashion is boring

This is not true. Fashion is what you make of it, and men’s fashion is not an exception. Gone are the days when only women knew how to walk the ruffles. Men fashion has revolutionized, it is more exciting as they can pull almost anything and get the hell away with it.

  1. Some people are born stylish

Fashion is not just beauty or the clothes you wear but about good attitude and carriage. If you look back in history of the most stylish women, they were never the trend followers. They were unique in their style, they broke the rules.

So this fallacy is simply faux. No one was born with fashion; anyone can be stylish all it takes is confidence, authenticity and original. Be you!

  1. You will never spot a fashionista in flats

ZARA COVER

You don’t need heels to be elegant and in style. It all boils down to being comfortable in your skin. If you feel awesome in flats then pull that look you prefer effortlessly. But we completely disagree that only ladies in heels are elegant. Flat are also just right for a myriad of events.

Save your individuality while keeping up with the trendiest of fashions. You don’t have to follow the latest fashion trends blindly just to be fashionable.
