Fashion Victim. Two words. So much meaning. To be labeled a fashion victim is like having the worst case of chicken pox. Some men are suckers for this phenomenon. Okay, let us dissect the word piece by piece. There are about three main meanings of the word. First, it means following all the trends and looking like one big mannequin.
Second it means wearing only branded clothes, who shops a lot and thinks he is fashion forward but does not think he looks absurd with all the trends on his body. The third one would be that this is a person who thinks that he is stylish yet he looks very much like a clown.
Fashion victims are across economical and intellectual boundaries. It is not about the clothes. It is about how you wear them. Here are some tips so you will not become a fashion victim yourself. Fashion victims tend to over do stuff. Remember, the mantra, less is more. Just stick to one to two trends and not all the trends in one season. The trick of the trade is to mix and match them. Not only would this present you with a lot of choices but it is also economical.
Fashion victims do not have balance of the basics and trendy items in their wardrobe. For fashion to work there should be the right mix of everything. If you want to buy something, make sure that that is what you really want it and it is not just because it is trendy. Trends just come and go. Fashion victims tend to follow someone, or something. A true blue fashionista is someone who is himself and not somebody else. When buying clothes, it has to be that it is what you want; it is your personality. Do not just get something because somebody told you to do so.
