Fashion Is What We Need

Fashion is one of the most important things for teenagers. Trends are not about covering up the body or having something to wear; they are about creating an original style. There are many ways of expression through fashion.

For some, it is using makeup. For others, to use an old cliche, it is the clothes that “makes the man.”  Many who focus on fashion can even see it as a competition.  Sometimes these people try to outdo each other.

Fashion is meaningful because it is a constant presence in a person’s life. It is a daily task of choosing what clothing to wear and keeping track of what others are wearing. For them, modesty is not essential. What is critical is self-expression.

Most pop-stars like to impress the public. Most have a stylist that they pay to choose their outfits for them. Although many artists do not have a lot of money, they like getting a stylist because they want to make sure that they are wearing the latest trends in fashion. A stylist must keep up with the latest fads, and their sense of taste can either make or break an artist. Style becomes especially important for the artists during awards ceremonies, or when they have to walk the “Red Carpet.”
