Fashion has been defined before now as a non-verbal way of communicating. This conveys much about an individual’s personality, background, and style. Before now, fashion has only been for the affluent alone, but it is now within reach of the commoner, especially the youths of today.

At the beginning of time, dress fashion, an evolution of different people’s ideas from different places, was popular for a very short time. But as time went on, it was accepted by and in society as a style that could be in the form of attire, behavior, and lifestyle.

This subject matter has taken its roots in different countries, which does not only center on clothing alone but also on the living style of individuals in that country. It adds variety to life as people tend to have different fashion senses. This is detected not only limited to clothing but also includes accessories like shoes, perfume, hairstyle, mannerisms, etiquette, and an individual’s attitude towards life.

Fashion is mostly associated with glamour. It makes people feel confident about themselves and feel bold as well. It helps individuals with inferiority complexes boost their self-esteem as they express themselves through their fashion sense, that is, their attire, behavior, and lifestyle. Fashion enhances an individual’s life; it allows one to think independently, dress fashionably and maintain self-esteem.

Overall, the way an individual lives, is termed fashion. Meanwhile, fashion constantly evolves because as season changes, tastes transform, and fads come and go. Different events in the world have influenced the fashion sense today. Different people adapt different fashion senses from different locations.

As much as fashion has its positive side, it also has its negative side, which everyone must note. This is the fact that people tend to imitate other people’s fashion sense without understanding the true essence of the individual’s fashion sense. If and when this is sorted out, can the fashion sense of such individuals be really seen and well interpreted?
