Fashion is a form of autonomy and self-expression in a certain time and environment and at a certain context, of clothing, shoes, footwear, cosmetics, hairstyle, and other body posture and attitude. The word itself denotes a style defined by the fashion market as what is currently fashionable. A new fashion is defined as something used or worn to advertise or make a fashion statement. If you are trying out new shoes and find them attractive then that would be considered a new style. The idea is that you want to change your everyday or normal attire to something that is fashionable to make a fashion statement.
You should not get hung up on what is considered to be a fashion trend, because each year new trends come and go. One year old fashions may become popular again next year in some fashion arena, but fashion is something that changes so fast you never know what will be a hot item for one season and widely used item for another. Another interesting trend that people often discuss about is the clothing as art project. Many designers are creating new styles of clothing as if they are putting them together in their own living rooms as visual art. There are some very talented designers who have produced clothes that are highly wearable pieces that can be worn to a variety of occasions.
The best thing that you can do to keep yourself updated with the latest trends is to stay informed through various mediums. Try watching TV shows on different channels that discuss current fashion trends, and visit the various fashion weeks and boutiques to check out the latest fashions and to get a feel for what is in and what is out. When it comes to buying fashionable apparel, it pays to do some window shopping before actually making any financial commitment. There are many great sales on fashionable clothes at retailers during off seasons and at great prices so take advantage of these sales prices and enjoy a comfortable wardrobe.
