What is fashion and am I be fashionable?

What is fashion? That can be defined in many different ways. I see fashion as modern/change, which isn’t surprising as the French word for fashion is La Mo, which is the short form of la modernité, which also means modernity. Fashion is what we see on the high street, the fashion magazines, the top designer stores, and on the runaway. It changes every season and to stay on top of fashion means to literally keep updating your wardrobe with every new collection that pops up. How possible is that especially now with all that we have going on?

Are we supposed to focus on fashion or style?

To be honest, I have never really been fashionable. Instead, I prefer having a capsule wardrobe that shows off my personal style. I stick to my personal style and not to the dictates of the never-ending fashion industry. Like many things, it takes a while to find your sweet spot but you know it once you find it. Being fashionable will clearly put many of us in debt, struggling to keep up with credit card payments and even store card payments. It amazes me every time when I am offered a store card for a fashion store. Why would I want to buy clothes on credit only for them to be out of season in a few months? That makes no sense. Now don’t get me wrong, I love looking good and I like to invest in my clothing and accessories, so I don’t have to keep shopping every few months. I also love spoiling myself and I have a lovely closet with more items I can count but I only shop for things I need. Going along with what is considered fashionable would be a waste.

How do you see fashion?

According to the editorial policy of Fashion Theory: The Journal of Dress, Body & Culture on Fashion History Love to Know Website, fashion is defined as “the cultural construction of the embodied identity.” Do you agree with this definition? How do you see fashion and would you call yourself fashionable?

Find Your Niche

Firstly, you want to find your niche. What content or angle do you want to come from? Perhaps you’re a good dancer and therefore want to post just dance and dance-related content. Or you might like to do home interior shots of your property and post them on your social media channels. Whatever your talent is or wherever your passions lie, focus on these when it comes to your social media. It’s certainly important to find that sweet spot when it comes to building a career because if you’re not in love with what you’re posting, then it might not work as effectively as you’d hope.

It’s important that you post content that your followers are going to enjoy so getting it right earlier on in regards to what you like posting, is important.

Create Quality Content

Creating quality content is next up on the list and with this, you want to make sure that everything you post is going to be relevant to the theme of your social media. It needs to showcase what you promote or cover on your feeds, and that quality should remain as it is going forward. Posting poor quality content is only going to put people off your feeds and that results in a lack of engagement or following.

Seek inspiration from other content creators on where you might be going wrong.

Be Consistent

Consistency is key when it comes to social media. It’s important to remember that hundreds of thousands, if not millions of social media content goes out every minute of every day. That means you need to be active in your consistency of posting content. Whether you like to post daily or weekly or even multiple times a day is up to you but consistency is key. The more consistent you are, the better it’s going to be for growing your audience.

Get An Agent

And finally, if you’re looking for additional support in your career, then there’s always the option of getting an agent. Agencies like unrulyagency.com can be helpful in boosting your success and growth depending on what you have already in regards to stats. There are lots of agencies out there but remember, they will all likely take a cut for the work that you attain.

Making a career on social media isn’t easy but it’s still possible. Use these tips above to help make a career for yourself on any of the social media platforms that you want to grow on. For some, it can happen quickly, whilst others take a bit more time to bloom.

 

 

 

 

Beauty Muse: Adele

The first Beauty Muse of the year 2021 is the lovely Adele. She is such a beauty! I think she has amazing facial features and her sultry voice always gives me goosebumps. Her makeup is always so flawless. I would love to be a fly on the wall to follow her makeup steps. Her signature eyeliner and nude lip makeup are always perfectly done by her makeup artist – Michel Ashton. He nails her look so well. I read his interview with CF Fashion Book some days ago and I found it very informative.

Here are some bits I really loved from the interview –

When you first met Adele, what inspired the look you did?
“Her beauty look has become as synonymous with her as her voice now, and that very first time I ever worked with her and put eyeliner on her, I don’t think we ever would have thought it would have become so iconic. Also, I think particularly the winged liner is just a look that suits her face so incredibly well because she has these big, beautiful almond-shaped eyes that she can really carry that off. I think the other reason it’s stood the test of time is that it’s a very classic beauty look.”

Adele’s makeup is so perfect, I agree. I think the winger liner suits her so well. The makeup shows off her almond-shaped eyes so beautifully. She is definitely a classic beauty. I love her look so much.

Do you have any tips for achieving the perfect winged liner?
“My biggest trick for people at home is to start on the outer corner of your eye and draw inward. It helps you create a straighter line when you’re doing that shape on the liner.

I will try drawing mine from the outer corner of my eye and see how I get on. It sounds like a great makeup tip. Normally, I usually start off from the inner corner, and sometimes I get it right. The eyeliner is such a tricky makeup to get right but once you get it right, it looks so good.

What do you think of Adele as a Beauty Muse?
