I love the idea of the Fashion Geek. Fashion is a big part of my life, and in a way, it is my job. Every day, I try to figure out what looks best on me. Fashion is so much more than just what I wear, and I have to do a lot more research than I do with the average person.
A lot of people with different interests have their own styles, so it is pretty easy for me to understand what the best look is for someone. But I’m also a pretty good fashion geek, so I know which clothes are right for a specific season. For example, I know to wear a black shirt with a red tie when I go to spring. I know to wear a black vest over a white sweater when I go to winter.
So you’re a fashion geek because you know what clothes are right for a specific season? Or are you just a fashion geek because you know clothes are right for a specific season? I’m going to assume you’re the latter.
Well, I would never wear a black vest over a white sweater! The white sweater is for spring, not winter. Now I know that to most you will think I would just be wearing a white sweater with a red tie – but that would never be right. I would wear a white sweater with a black vest over it.
There are two seasons in Fashion. The first was when fashion was pretty much just for the likes of Grace Jones and Madonna. The second was when people started dressing in fashions like Ralph Lauren. Those days are long gone. Today our clothes are more than ever about trends, fashion, and design. That means you have to pay attention to what you’re wearing and know how to dress it well.
Your clothes must be in good condition. If the clothes are in excellent condition, they must be in good condition.
The problem with bad condition is that it shows through and people can look at the clothes and see the damage. A lot of people are still wearing vintage clothing because they never got past the second season. But, they are also often not looking at it in the right way. To some, a vintage shirt is really cool and shows great attention to detail. To others, the fabric of the shirt does not match up with the shirt, or the color of the shirt is off-putting.
The problem is that people are so used to seeing damage to the clothes that they become over-confident about how good the condition is. For a lot of people, the best way to dress is to dress like a rock star. They know what they are paying for and they are willing to take the risk to get it. But, it’s easy to forget that you may have to pay some of the same price for a vintage shirt or a vintage pair of shoes.
The problem we run into with vintage clothing is that the trend has been to throw everything out. That means that the clothes you buy are no longer going to last forever.
Vintage clothing is one of those things that may not be so bad if you can go back to the thrift shops. But, it is very unlikely that you will find a vintage shirt that is not made from 100% cotton. This is because even though the trend of thrifting has been to throw everything out, the trend has also been to throw out everything.
