Many people take fashion trends lightly, something that doesn’t require a lot of time or dedication to follow, but any person that is immersed in the world of fashion will tell you a completely different story. Being in the loop of what is happening on the fashion scene can easily be a full-time occupation, if you’ve got the knack and passion for it, but if you’re doing it for your pleasure, things are simpler.
Following up on fashion trends is easier than ever thanks to the blessings of internet and all the knowledge we can acquire on it. If you’re just getting into world of fashion and you need some guidance, here are some steps that can help you in your aspiration to be in the loop with latest fashion trends.
Start with Fashion Websites
When in doubt, consult the internet. Whether you need some inspiration on what to wear and shop or you want to know what the latest news of the fashion industry is, there are always some excellent fashion websites to lead your way.
Wonderful thing about fashion websites is that you don’t have to be a passive beholder and you can actually learn a lot, not matter how frequent your visits are. There are many popular sites to choose from, but we always suggest starting with following online fashion magazines and you can also check out websites of big brands that usually set fashion trends. But the search doesn’t have to end there, on the contrary, the universe of online fashion only expands, so you can explore even further into online shops and don’t forget the fashion apps that are becoming better with each passing year. A great perk of these websites is that you can get so much more than just insights into what (not) to wear – many of them actually give beauty tips, makeup tutorials and perks that are beneficial for all fashionistas out there.
Fashion Events as a Night out
If you’re looking for an entrance into the fashion world, then attending fashion events, runway shows and everything in between is a must. Depending on where you live, it might sometimes be hard to find inspiring events in your surroundings, but there are always people eager to show their creativity and talent as long there’s someone ready to see it. Naturally, if you’re able to go to the big events that shape the world of fashion, then you should definitely do it, not just because of everything you’ll see, but also because you can meet some amazingly creative people.
Who you know in the fashion world can make a lot of difference and can help you learn even more about changing tides of taste and style and it all usually starts with these fashion events. Of course, there are big chances that nothing spectacular will happen, but these happenings are usually amazing in itself and you can draw inspiration just from being in the epicenter of it all.
Find and Follow Your Fashion Gurus
Fashion bloggers are great teachers for everyone that has an unquenched thirst for everything fashion related and you can see that by their popularity. Many fashion-savvy girls (and some men) have made a fortune by sharing how they perceive fashion with the rest of the world. They can teach you what (not) to wear, which clothes are suitable for what event or part of the day and whatever else that comes to mind.
Each of those bloggers has their own unique sense of style, which means that not every one of them will actually suit your needs, so choose wisely. Also, many of these online fashion influencers will tell you exactly what they’re wearing and how you can find it by linking where you can buy them, which makes everything so much easier.
Mind the Way You Shop
We’ve all been in the situation where we’ve got a full wardrobe of clothes and still nothing to wear and that is not a good situation to be in. It’s more than recommendable to do a raid of your closet at least once a year. If you want to follow latest fashion trends, then first of all you need to have pieces of clothes that go with everything, classics that are suitable for practically every situation. Everything you haven’t worn in over a year, you probably never will wear again so you can toss it out or give it to charity. The truth is that sometimes less is more and you don’t have to go shopping often to continually make a fashion statement. Go window shopping often, but buy rarely and mostly pieces you know will go well with much of what you’ve already got in your closet and you’ll be golden.
Sometimes following fashion trends might seem prosaic, but once you get into it, you realize there’s much more than meets the eye. When you really get into the fashion world, you’ll be able to find your unique ways to keep educating yourself on the subject, but for now let these little guidelines lead the way and witness your progress. – Adam Ferraresi
