Fashion Flash!

By Bridgette Montgomery

I’m a believer that fashion is important for your career or anywhere you go. It might sound insane, but fashion now-a-days is a big deal. No matter where you go or who you are with, you are more than likely going to be judged by others for your apparel. So why not try looking nice? People dress to impress! Most people say they don’t care what others think.  It is good to have your confidence in yourself, but you wouldn’t want to go to a job interview with sweatpants on or you wouldn’t go out on a date with your pajamas on, right? What you are wearing when someone first meets you is your first impression to them. Do you want to create a bad impression to them? Not everybody cares, but a good majority does. “When you first meet someone, and you’re wearing sweat pants, you come off as lazy, or don’t care about your appearance. But, if you were wearing maybe a cute dress, you come off as a happy, energetic person, ” stated anonymous from debate.org.

Creativity, self esteem and self identity: Do I have to say more? What we dress like matters: it’s our business card. We are able to show through clothes our personality, what we like, what we don’t and relate to similar individuals. There is also variety and all the fashion styles are a type of art. Fashion keep us creative, entertains and even gives us confidence.” Another anonymous source supports that fashion is important in this debate on debate.org. Like the quote states above, fashion reflects your personality and what others will connect you as. If you wear sweatpants all of the time, you will get the label lazy from the peers around you. If you wear running shorts, people will look at you as an active person. If you wear a nice sweater, everyone will think you are classy and comforting.

Yes, fashion is important. Fashion: when most people hear that word lots of different things come to mind- supermodels, money, fabric, the quote “Coco before Channel”, or the movie Devil Wears Prada. You most likely don’t think of it as an art, career passion or even a lifestyle. Fashion can promote creativity; that is very important in culture, society, and religion. It can make you look and feel more professional. Most people may not think fashion is important. Those people should find another way to be creative, like joining an art class, or getting in to photography. Maybe people think the clothing choices aren’t all that great, I agree for the most part. Fashion can make you more creative in everyday life. Most people question how fashion could possibly improve someone’s creativity. Every morning you get up and get dressed. You put some creative thought in what you wear. No matter if you’re going out with friends or to work. On a daily basis you have to put thought into what you wear.

You can be creative in what you wear in so many different ways. For example, you may want to dress like your favorite celebrity or even dress up for Halloween. Some celebrities have a “signature” look like Kim Kardashian, Kylie Jenner, Taylor Swift, Miley Cyrus and Katy Perry. In addition, fashion is very important in religion. Fashion is important to religion because they may have to dress a certain way or dress with more of their skin covered. For example, Muslim women cover their faces with head scarves. They could also be classified as a “fashion statement” because it is taking away the way you dress for a purpose. Fashion is very important in job interviews; you need to dress to impress. If you are wearing tacky mismatched clothes, chances are you aren’t going to get the job. If you are dressed professionally, and have nice clothes on, you are probably going to get the job by your looks.

Also, lots of people snap judgment on how you look and dress. When you begin paying close attention to what you are wearing, you will begin to notice details in other areas of your life. This includes the quality of others’ work and, most importantly, the quality of your own work. This newfound focus can also be applied to your social life such as bettering your ability to recall certain details about someone you recently met. Dressing well is an activity that will eventually result in you becoming more responsible due to gaining a finer perception.

For the United States, there is many different ways people can show culture here with their fashion sense. There isn’t a specific type to choose from it is all different and fitted to many different people’s taste in fashion.
