Fashion is something we deal with everyday. Even people who say they don’t care what they wear choose clothes every morning that say a lot about them and how they feel that day.

One certain thing in the fashion world is change. We are constantly being bombarded with new fashion ideas from music, videos, books, and television. Movies also have a big impact on what people wear. Ray-Ban sold more sunglasses after the movie Men In Black. Sometimes a trend is world-wide. Back in the 1950s, teenagers everywhere dressed like Elvis Presley. Fashion is a form of self expression, at a particular period and place and in a specific context, of clothing, footwear, lifestyle, accessories, makeup, hairstyle, and body posture.[1] In its everyday use, the term implies a look defined by the fashion industry as that which is trending. What is called fashion is thus that which is made available and popular by fashion system (industry and media).

There are many reasons we wear what we wear.

    Protection from cold, rain and snow: mountain climbers wear high-tech outerwear to avoid frostbite and over-exposure.
    Physical attraction: many styles are worn to inspire “chemistry.”
    Emotions: we dress “up” when we’re happy and “down” when we’re upset.
    Religious expression: Orthodox Jewish men wear long black suits and Islamic women cover every part of their body except their eyes.

Identification and tradition: judges wear robes, people in the military wear uniforms, brides wear long white dresses.

    “The apparel oft proclaims the man.”
    -Shakespeare, Hamlet
