Candid photos can reveal the truth about our appearances, such as unexpected hair styling, poor posture, or poorly drawn brows. It’s essential to be aware that others see us differently than we see ourselves. Taking care of our appearance and ensuring that we are presenting ourselves in the best possible light can positively impact how others perceive us.
A physical transformation can bring a sense of rejuvenation and can have therapeutic benefits, signifying a fresh start. In celebrities’ cases, a change in appearance often represents a shift in their career or public image. This can be due to changes in fashion trends, lifestyle choices, or cosmetic enhancements, but seeing their before-after shots is fascinating.
By now, we’ve all come to realize that fashion trends are cyclical. This has a lot to do with nostalgia and throwback culture, and it’s also kind of easy to recycle something that once dominated our styles in the past. Today, we’re playing around with the idea of bringing back skinny eyebrows from the early 2000s. You might think we’re crazy, but don’t knock it until you see how these brows can freshen up any look — just take these gorgeous celebs as an example.
Life can get so absurd sometimes that it can make us laugh harder than a comedy show. Especially when it comes to online orders that are far from what we’ve expected or surreal fashion that has suddenly turned into a trend. And while confusion or annoyance might be our first reaction to these sights, we can choose to be grateful that they exist, as they make our life way more colorful and exciting.
Fashion changes really fast, and what looked trendy only a decade ago may look somewhat ridiculous nowadays. From colorful geometry patterns of the ’60s and ’70s to voluminous shoulders of the ’80s and skinny eyebrows of the ’90s, we’ve seen so many fashion trends, and it’s time to recall them all.
Fashion is the mirror of time. The values and standards of the time they are worn in are captured in fashion. Noble French, British, and Spanish women of the past amaze us with the beauty of their dresses. But few people know that the dresses from noble people of the past had their own little secrets.
People nowadays make a big effort to look like everybody else and it’s all due to social media and the fashion trends there. However, we forget how unique we all are and that our authenticity should be celebrated and not hidden. And we have a lot of examples that show why being yourself should be applauded.
Glossy magazines keep posting thousands of articles about what’s trendy and what’s not with each season (or even more frequently). However, the choice of stylists and fashion designers doesn’t always look appropriate in everyday life. Internet users decided not to hold themselves back and spoke out about all of their thoughts on what fashion trends annoy them the most in a thread.
Time machines don’t exist — everyone knows that. But if you look at how certain hairstyles, colors, fabrics, and even accessories like hairpins, crochet tops, and headscarves are coming back into fashion, you get the feeling that the 2000s are actually back on track.
Fashion trends constantly change, quickly become outdated, and sometimes disappear in a blink of an eye. Like the tiny purse trend — would any of your friends be happy getting a bag as a present that only has enough space to hold their keys?
People are directly influenced by the way they decide to dress. Based on fashion trends, people will make judgments about someone who is wearing a particular item of clothing or style, whether it is a simple T-shirt or one with a big logo. What few of us know is that the ones who wear big logos are interested in much more than just fashion.
Fashion trends change in the blink of an eye. The tendencies change, and every decade has its own unique features. In one period, clothes may be more revealing, and in others, they’re more conservative. There are times when people wear bright colors and strange elements. Sometimes, when you look back, you get really surprised by the things that used to be trendy.
When we follow a certain fashion trend, we can’t really have a voice from the future come back and tell us: “You’re going to regret this in a few years.” Everyone thinks that their new look is amazing. For example, a few years ago, fashion magazines claimed that women should wear very thin eyebrows and that men shouldn’t shape their eyebrows — they had to keep them natural, even if that meant having a unibrow. Thankfully, times have changed, and both guys and girls have realized that the things they once thought looked great because magazines said so weren’t actually that nice after all.
The saying, “Rules exist to be broken” — is extremely true for fashion. Today, it’s no longer possible to follow the rules of style that were instilled in us by our mothers and grandmothers. It’s time to reconsider this outdated concept of style — some things should be forgotten completely, and others should be just slightly updated.
According to statistics, about 30% of people who decide to redecorate their houses prefer contemporary interior design. But it might be pretty difficult to bring these ideas to life because we often receive plenty of controversial advice, and fashion trends are constantly changing.
Nothing changes as fast as fashion trends do. But people desperately try to keep up with them anyway. It’s stylists who have the most up-to-date knowledge of fashion and some of them (luckily for us) are ready to share what they know on the Internet. Alexandra Gazinskaya, a stylist from Krasnoyarsk, has more than 50,000 followers on Instagram and believes that there’s no universal advice for everyone so she never gives recommendations like, “You should wear these clothes and don’t even try to put on these.” On the contrary, she reveals simple fashion tricks that will help you keep up with the ever-changing fashion trends.
Experts estimate that by the year 2025, the global beauty and personal care product market size will reach $716.6 billion. Celebrities are the people who probably take the most care of their appearance, almost more than anyone else. They constantly use the services of beauty industry experts and they try to be on the same page with all the latest fashion trends.
Over time, many things that were once commonplace may become obsolete, yet they can still hold a special place in our hearts as a reminder of happy memories. Even simple things like outdated fashion trends, old family heirlooms like sewing machines, or phones with physical keypads can evoke a strong sense of sweet childhood nostalgia and transport us back to a time when life was simpler and more carefree.
Fashion trends are constantly changing. For example, at first it was men who wore high heels, not women. It’s hard to keep up with trends, but there are things that are timeless. They can hardly be called fashionable, or even beautiful. Nevertheless they are definitely funny and worthy of being seen.
The term fashion victim, that has been used in the recent past, suggests that the fashion industry is responsible for forming our lives and our views based on what’s “in” style. However, people in the previous centuries were much more controlled by fashion than we are today. When something was trending they were obligated to wear it, especially if they were at a certain social status. This means that they followed trends and cultural practices that were not only uncomfortable, but also dangerous for their well-being.
Cardigans that used to be popular in the 1960s, dresses with large prints from the 1980s, and flared jeans from the 1970s are things we see on the world's runways today. Most experts agree that each fashion cycle lasts an average of 15 years. People need about 2 years to notice the trend, after that it will gain momentum for the next 5 years and after becoming popular it will peak for the next 5 years. Finally, its popularity will start decreasing and the process of fading away will take 3 years. As time passes, the trend might come back. There are several common trends that are on their way out and knowing what these are will help you avoid mistakes while creating the perfect look.
We are used to seeing weird clothing on runway models, and our most common reaction is usually "It’s fashion, baby!" However, sometimes even regular shops offer strange clothes for everyday wear. Are they taking fashion trends way too far? Bright Side gathered several examples of fashionable clothes that you shouldn’t buy at any cost.
