Fashion is fluid, and for the past few decades, every season has had a distinct fashion item that a chunk of society flowed with.
From boot-cut jeans to skinny jeans, to mini skirts, to ripped jeans, to jumpsuits to peplum tops to bodysuit, the world constantly bounces from one fashion piece to another.
The mass cult following of trends is largely due to celebrity influences and other campaigns propagated by the media.
There has, however, been a decline in the frequency and in the impact of trends over the past few years, possibly because people are becoming more self-aware, leaning more towards individualism.
The individual wants to be appreciated for his or her uniqueness. As more and more persons realise that anyone can be a “star” in their own way, the formerly-high yearn to imitate the style of the stars is on a decline.
According to Nina Garcia, editor-in-chief of Elle, “style is a deeply personal expression of who you are, and every time you dress, you are asserting yourself” while Bruce Boyer says “real style is never right or wrong. It is a matter of being yourself on purpose”.
