How important is fashion clothing to you?

Post by buttercup »

As i get older i find fashion clothing serves me no purpose at all other than going out which i do very little of, this in turn means i get very little wear out of it before its out of fashion, so i no longer buy it.

Some things fortunately will never go out of fashion, jeans and the little black dress spring to mind.

How important is fashion clothing to you, will you hit the sales this year for fashion or practicality?

I like to look good and be comfortable. I work in an office, but fortunately, we can dress casually. I wear outfits but sometimes I like to mix and match. Pants and tops most of the times. Dresses on occasion.

I do watch other women and notice what they are wearing. I ask myself if I would look good wearing what she has on. Why or why not......that type of thing.

I am not young, skinny or sophisticated.......:wah:....so I don't worry about "fashion clothing". I ain't going down no stinkin' runway. :wah:

I been wearing jeans for the better part of sixty years.

Sometimes they're in fashion, some times not. The difference seems to be the price.

I never really looked good in the little black dress.

If there is a sale at the Wrangler store, I am there.

I'm a Jeans kind of girl myself. I do, however, love to shop in the "gently used" shops. I found last week a beautiful leather jacket and it cost me $5. :)

I guess I shop most often at PAC Sun and Macy’s Men’s Store. I have some stuff from American Eagle, Aeronautical, and even thrift shops, but most of my stuff comes from the first two I named and the brands can really vary at those stores.

I really love some fashion trends but I don't care what's currently 'in'. I don't really have a style and some days I just look like a mess because I don't care, but I am trying to make more of an effort recently as I am interested in clothes when I can be bothered.

My husband Is a complete snob when It comes to clothes and It must be mostly 'Tommy Hilfiger'. I do have some Hilfiger but not as picky as him.

I do attend some functions where I have to look half decent so go for black trouser suits and a little bling.

Also on the race-courses I have to look half decent so I tend to wear Jacket and skirt to work there... I find my BNP slogan tee-shirts do not go down too well.

At home I like Cargo pants and tee-shirts. My favourite tee-shirt says on the front... 'I ALWAYS GET WHAT I WANT'...

Well, I work at a high school, so I have to have a dress code of sorts. (although it is pretty lax, no shorts, no beer shirts, etc.) I find that I have a lot less trouble and more respect from the students the more I dress up. I'm certainly not going to be buying gucci on my salary, but nice Dockers, and shirt and a tie from JC Penny's go a long way towards giving me a good image and being a proper model for young adults.

There's another teacher at my school, female, that always wears beat up T-shirts and torn jeans. Technically, there's no rule that she can't do that, but for the reasons I gave, I just think it's kind of inappropriate.

Can't be doing with labels, complete and utter waste of money. I tend to look out for bargains in high street stores and charity shops. I don't generally buy something because it's in fashion, it's generally because the cut or design will actually suit my body shape.

By Fashion Clothing I assume you are talking about name brand like Izod, Marie Whatchacallit etc. This is one male that has always enjoyed looking good in my clothes and when in the work force paid great attention to the correct three piece suit, shirt tie and shoes. Having been retired for almost 20 years it's been "Joe Casual" but still wanting to look "Joe Casual Cool" Good looking clothes in California are cheap, cheap, cheap and that means they are not always designer labels, however there are discount outlets that sell designer clothes at 70% discount if that's someones thing. I am wearing at this moment a pair of Brick Red Docker cotton trousers with a solid white short sleeved top and sandals and my $12 undesigner sun glasses. I know I look good, several people told me so despite my wife's opinion< but that's the fun of being retired----who gives a s--t.

I wouldn't buy Gucci either, I don't do labels, its just a crock and a waste of money.

I think she dresses inappropriately as well, she is a professional and should dress accordingly.

When I worked as a receptionist/admin I was always dressed to the nines.

dresses, suits, skirts and jackets, high heels.

now I just dress casual unless I go out somewhere special.

Fashion is important if its worn well......some think they can wear all kinds of things, meanwhile it just doesn't suit them.

Fashion is a serious health risk. Today I am in pain. Well, slightly sore.

Last night I was down the pub and wearing a pair of plimsolls. But they had been subjected to a fashionable remake. The soles were absolutely smooth. Very cool.

It was raining. I swent out onto the metal fire escape for a fashionable fag. No grip. Feet went out from under me like I was on ice (Cool!). Had to jam down an elbow to stop myself going down the fire escape on my arse. Now have bloody and sore elbow. But looked very fashionable as I collapsed.

Conclusion: Fashion is bad for your elbows.

Luckily not. :) All happened rather fast.

Elbow is sore and stiff, but everything seems to be working and nothing feels broken. I heal well, fortunately.

chucle. "Fire Escape" does describe what the smokers are doing, as well as the location, rather well. Hadn't thought of it before.

(Darkly) Beware the fashionable plimsoll.

Odie: Thank you. :) Everything seems ok. Just a bit sore.

Plimsolls Really !!!!

It reminds me of when the nephew was first remanded pending trial to the prison. They have a system there where they have to earn stars and he had to get a gold to earn the right to wear his own designer trainers. Mean-time he had to wear prison regulation plimsolls and a tabbard. I whinged all through a 2 hour visit about those damn plimsolls Insisting they made him look like a retard.

At my age...early 60s...... I'm careful about what I wear as a lot of the current fashion is very 'girlie' and of course aimed at teenagers. I think I probably follow trends rather than fashion. CAn't remember last time I wore a skirt....I tend to wear jeans, Cargoes, cropped or tailored trousers for a night out (very rare). NOT Skinnie stuff though. I like the current trend for longer tops (covers wobbly bits). In general my clothes have to be comfy and practical with all the 'grandchildren minding' I do.

I mainly go to Marks & Spencers (90%), Next or Debenhams.

Footwear is normally trainers or trainer type shoes (Sketchers)..... don't wear 'heels' anymore

Demonstrating an unerring eye for fashion trends, predicting the movements and setting the direction for others to follow has always struck me as the prime reason I exist. I completely change my in-use wardrobe every three or four months, cycling some items back for the day I decree them to once again be vogue and replacing with clothes from (usually) obscure importers who bring forward potential looks in the hope that some few might catch my fancy. Twenty years back I considered myself two years ahead of the field. With the rapid uptake of trends recently I'm content to merely show what will sell next year. It's surprisingly inexpensive and wonderfully satisfying to know the effect one can have just by stepping into the right club in the right outfit on the right night, yet I doubt whether my annual clothing budget exceeds £6,000. Others spend so much more and achieve so much less.

Talking someone into a recognition that, for example, a 15th century style autumnal-toned hooded smock with integral liripipe will be definitively right for her this year when the summer ends can be an uphill task, but very rewarding when it works. When a match like that comes along, and wouldn't have suited anyone else, that's the moment when all aspects of fashionable merit have been met.

You're elegant sartorial influences are the single reason ( well that and the recent BBC documentary series on Elizabeth the 1st) I will be propping up the bar at my local establishment in my newly aquired ( ER-Bay ) doublet and hose, although I must add that I find lacing my wife up into her bodice and ironing her wide-tuffed trumpet sleeves rather tiresome.

I'll tell you what, it can be hell finding a codpiece that doesn't pinch since the Asian imports knocked the bottom out of the domestic suppliers. I've been known to sew in an under-gusset before now just to know I'll get through the evening. At least I've enough poulaines to see me out.

You do know you're going to have to put up a photo album after that post, don't you.

The furthest historical reference of 'dressed to the nines'...



The phrases 'to the nines', or 'to the nine', were used to indicate perfection - the highest standards. That was in use in the 18th century, as here from William Hamilton's Epistle to Ramsay, 1719:



'How to the nines they did content me'.

It may go back further .. If some-one cares to research further but I got uber stuff to do like wot you probably do..

That, while it doesn't surprise me, was not exactly what I had in mind. I was hoping to see how many bells you considered appropriate this year, whether you wear them just at the calf, and how you hold your bauble[1] when entering company - I've observed some distressingly slack grips on baubles in recent months.





[1] The Morris, degraded as they have become, refer to this as "the stick", but bauble is far more proper.

Yes, I agree with you. There is a huge difference in the views of a college girl and a mature working girl towards fashion and clothes. A college girl on one side experiments with various types of dresses like capri, shorts, etc funky dresses but a mature girl opts formal dresses. I am a mature working girl, so I always prefer to wear along with formal shirts because this is what gives me a look of a sincere career oriented girl. That's what fashion is for me. I am too old to wear funky dresses so I buy such dresses only because we all need to change our way of walking, way of talking, dress up, etc time to time according to the time and place. Am I wrong? What do you think about it guys??

Hmm...It is not about fashionable clothes, but its about what you wearing and how you look like in that clothes. If you are wearing fashionable clothes they must be suitable and also comfortable with you. Be fashionable like you have three men walk behind you.

I really love to wear the fashionable clothes but according to me fashion clothing is very important for me. I love all the new fashion trends that come in after every month and every year. I think stylish dressing sense will give a great look to everyone's personality.

I find the whole concept of 'fashion' rather comical.

Fashion is supposed to be an expression of individuality, yet everyone seems to be intent on copying everyone else in order to be seen as being 'fashionable'.

That's not a use of the word "everyone" which I would care to adopt.

"Everyone", as in the "Dedicated followers of fashion" is concerned.

So & So wears Such & Such.

So & So is fashionable.

Everyone else is copying So & So.

Everyone else is fashionable.

Therefore to be fashionable I must copy So & So as well in order to be fashionable so that I, too, can express my individuality.

Yet these are the types who would object to having to wear a uniform.

I am in fashion when Wrangler Jeans and Flannel shirts are in vogue.
