How Fashion Bloggers are Democratizing the Fashion World

There was a time in fashion history when what was fashionable was only known to the elite aka rich and famous. When it was released they were the only ones who could afford those new styles. So much has changed since then and thankfully more people are able to get in touch with what’s in vogue.

Styles are no longer something beyond reach. Not only that, we can see the latest designs even before they hit the stores.

I believe democratizing fashion has helped evolve people’s orientation to what is fashionable. I also believe that it gives room for creativity. And as more pieces flood in we get exposed to the endless possibilities of ways we can mix and match those pieces to create something we call our own.

When I sit back to analyse how far fashion has come I see a pattern being revealed. I realized that we fashion bloggers play a very important role in democratizing fashion. We follow our love and passion for fashion, and have become one of the quickest means of disseminating and declaring what is termed fashionable. Just to give you a clear picture of how we are able to achieve this, here are some things that will interest you.

 

Fashion bloggers get you connected with what is trending

We are dedicated to informing our readers about what’s trending now in the fashion industry. By keeping our readers informed, we help them keep up with the latest styles and trends, and what’s happening in the world of fashion.

 

Fashion bloggers want to share what’s happening in the fashion industry

The reason why fashion was not accessible to all, was because only a certain set of people were invited to fashion shows and were aware of the upcoming designs and trends. Fashion shows were also not streamed online so there was no way for the general public to get involved.

As time passed by and things started to change, thanks to fashion bloggers and social media. Fashion bloggers not only share what’s trending on the runway, they also give tips, hacks and affordable alternatives that will help their readers mimic what’s trending in a way that is the most affordable.

Fashion bloggers are the voice of consumers

We are so fortunate to witness an era where our opinions about fashion matter. We fashion bloggers are so much closer to consumers, we know what the people are looking for. Our influence is so strong that fashion designers and retailers tend to listen. What this means is that fashion bloggers have turned out to be the voice of the voiceless.

Fashion is no longer one way traffic. We are able to voice out what consumers are agitating for, which gives fashion designers a clear picture of what the people want.

Style Icon – Kylie Jenner

Kylie Jenner is all over the news with her new reality TV show – Life of Kylie. I have seen a few seconds of a clip of the show, and it looks good. I am no longer a huge fan of reality TV shows, especially those of the Kardashian/Jenner family. Which is why I am not watching Life of Kylie, but I am sure millions of Kylie’s fans are watching.

Kylie Jenner has grown up before our very eyes, and her style has evolved in the last few years. This young Style Icon keeps making a fashion statement every time she steps out. And guess what? She knows it!

“I never thought I was normal, never tried to be normal” – Kylie Jenner.

Kylie Jenner is famous for experimenting with her facial and body features (which I don’t admire), but she is also fashion risk taker, and I like that about her. She is not afraid to play with her look, and the best part of it is that she nails it overtime.

If I were asked to describe her personal style in 3 words, it would be – trendy, provocative, stylish. When it comes to fashion and style, Kylie Jenner slays!

Kylie Jenner seems to be taking fashion and beauty lessons from her big sister – Kim Kardashian. The good thing is that those lessons are working for her. She actually looks like a mini version of Kim now with all the changes she is making.

Apart from this beauty’s stylish fashion sense, I also admire her working ethics. Some days ago, I came across the book – How to be an Overnight Success by Maria Hatzistefanis, and Kylie Jenner’s attention to her brand and her hard-working nature was mentioned repeatedly in the book. It is good to see Kylie doing well outside the Keeping up with the Kardashians reality show. As the youngest of the sisters, I am happy to see she has her business head on. Whatever she touches, turns to gold!

The Essential Guide to Dressing for an Interview

The first impression is one of the most important parts of an interview. Your resume and cover letter may get you in the door, but your in-person meeting will be the make or break factor. Since we know that putting together a stylish and professional outfit doesn’t exactly come naturally to everyone, here are a few guidelines to follow when preparing for an interview.

Dress for the Job

 

You want to dress for the job that you are actually interviewing for; if you’re interviewing for a barista job at the new, hip coffee shop in town, you don’t need to show up in a business suit, but if you’re in a more professional setting, you’ll want to look the part.

 

Add Details

 

Add elements into your outfit that reflect specific traits that you can bring to the position. For instance, does the position require someone who is incredibly detail-oriented? Then maybe add in a few impeccable details to your look that will stand out, like a perfectly placed pin on your blouse or a pair of polished cufflinks. There’s one statement piece you can’t forgo: the statement watch. Everyone needs a staple timepiece—look punctual and polished in one easy step. Browse the selection of gold watches for men and women from MVMT to find something that complements your new office-worthy digs.

 

Wear a Blouse that Fits

 

If you’re opting for a blouse, keep it simple with a neutral option that fits well. Women often make the mistake of getting a blouse that’s too tight or too loose. Tight blouses can pull in the chest and make moving difficult, while loose blouses look baggy and unflattering. If you find it difficult to pick out the right blouse, purchase a larger size and get it tailored to fit you perfectly. Pair it with a sleek pencil skirt or ironed trousers to complete the look.

 

Add Shoes

 

Whether you choose to wear heels or flats, make sure your footwear is clean and polished. If you want to wear a pair of heels, make sure they’re not scuffed from your night out. Wear a pair that’s comfortable to walk in and won’t distract you while you wait for your interview. Nobody wants to think of pinched toes or blisters during their interview, so make sure your shoes are worn-in before the big day.

 

Wear Appropriate Makeup

 

Unless you’re interviewing for a fashion job, keep it simple with the makeup. Save the intense cat eye makeup and red lipstick for nighttime and go for a subtler look.  Stay away from distracting colors and wear neutral tones that accentuate your features. One simple way to keep your makeup from looking too dramatic is to apply it in the natural light. Hold a vanity mirror up to the window and apply your makeup accordingly.

 

Accessories

 

Keep your accessories understated. Choose a simple bracelet, stud earrings, and delicate necklace to pull your look together. If your outfit is neutral, choose accessories with a little more sparkle or color to give your look more interest.

Manicure

Your interviewer likely won’t be looking at your fingers with a magnifying glass, but nobody likes to see dirty nails. If you’ve been neglecting your nails, it may be time for a manicure. Go for neutral nudes, pinks, or even red for a pop of color. Your nails need more than color; they also need to be trimmed and filed.

 

Hair

 

Check your hair before your interview. Leaning your head against the car seat, a gust of wind, or fluffing your hair before an interview can lead strands astray. Bring a hair tie, hairspray, or bobby pins just in case you need a quick touch up.

 

Follow these style guidelines and you’ll pull off a cool, professional look sure to get you noticed for all the right reasons. Nail the first impression and walk in with confidence so you can land your job.
