What’s your fashion vocabulary like? Mine’s not very big, relatively speaking, and especially for someone who makes clothes. I know the basic garment types and so on, but terminology like types of neck lines, skirts, tops and so on, I’m very short on. I know a lot of what generally exists out there, but not by name for the most part. So one of the things I had on my 2015 To Do List was to expand my fashion vocabulary.
This post elaborates on the sixth of ten elements of my fashion philosophy, which is if I were caught on security camera, there’d be no trouble describing me.
Do you have some fashion philosophies? Some guidelines or trends by which you buy/make clothes? I do, and I share mine below in summary of an overarching philosophy, elaborating on each element later.
If you don’t have some fashion philosophies, you might consider formulating some. You can develop it by thought, or start by analyzing what you have in your closet, and deciding what you might like to change. What you wear does make an impression and does form some portion of your identity. Not having some conscious fashion philosophies is a bit like not having an identity for which you have some say in. Are you the type to run around without an identity you give yourself? 🙂
If you do have some fashion philosophies, or will be getting some, please do share. You can link to this post or leave a comment.
