Can’t decide what to wear for today’s night party? Though you are someone who feels attractive and bold independent of their look, there are times when are attracted towards conformity. The accessory of a particular individual keeps on changing as they love creative photography. Millennials rarely had this easy radical swag and the flexibility of altering their entire wardrobes now and then.
The smartness of this Gen Z
Parents have this notion in their mind that just because they are buying so many clothes frequently, it would be very expensive and luxurious. But what they don’t know is that they don’t buy ready-made clothes all the time. They have taken fashioning in their hands. You must have seen those hack videos where they show easy ways for stitching, sewing, braiding and styling their clothes, pumps and hair.
And this is how they make cheap clothes for themselves which are valuable looked and extraordinary. Their price of the clothes becomes cheaper when they bargain and buy from wholesale markets as well as purchase it in bulk quantity. They call it DIY or Do-it-Yourself. It brings us back to the olden days of adjustment and conservative thinking where there wasn’t much care about the brand. What mattered was an innovation.
They also show how to do catwalk, walk on the runway and replicate posture that makes it easier for the others to implement in their day-to-day life. They portray their styles with swag like a scientific phenomenon and often they are so good that even you will feel like applauding their craftsmanship.
Several videos teach you how to match the shading of your clothes, which colour of zipper or hippie buttons, will be best for you. Their influence is so much that their advice is equivalent to the signature of a chartered accountant.
Monetization of their skills
Their affection for these skills leads them to the path of making their passion to trade. You must have noticed how several makeup brands are started by youngsters at tender ages. They learn to do the prediction of the style of a particular consumer. They also understand their couture, etiquette, apparel and struggle to establish their own unique identity. There are also cloth brands that have everything right from swimwear clothing to jewelry.
The marketing and advertising strategies are developed so much that they need to have a model which is different from mainstream standards. It is majorly all about breaking the stereotypes. There is the inclusion of XL models and body shaming is no longer an everyday joke. Once their brand becomes powerful, it sets trends as to whether one should be wearing a glossy outfit full of glitter or a simple and sober outfit will be the best. There are also a lot of apps that help you to pair the handbag, jacket, jeans, petticoat that enhance the shopping experience of today’s tech-savvy generation.
Owning one’s own body and fashion proudly
There is also an increase in sleeveless, revealing clothing. The positive influence of feminism and women empowerment has made it clear for the patriarchal society that what a woman wears is completely her choice. It is a wonderful time in the history of mankind where females know to own their bodies without any shame or conformity to the shaky societal beauty standards.
Unfortunately, there are still many women who fall prey to artificial beauty standards set by the so-called perfect influencers on various social media platforms. They use shaping jeans, tight synthetic clothes to fit in the culture. Halter dresses with uncomfortable textiles are also very unhealthy for them to wear however they give in the peer pressure.
But they see others in prêt-a-porter radical halter instead of the one stitched by their tailor and through the measurement that they gave. And this is how they go on choosing style over comfort. Such dresses allure them so much that they forget that dresses are supposed to fit them. If something is not of their size, they need to get a larger size. Instead, they are stubborn and set unrealistic goals of fitting into a smaller size quickly within weeks. They reduce the proportion of their food intake and lose weight in an unhealthy manner. The situation goes out of control when they have no insight into what they are doing is unhealthy for their body. They continue to do so and eventually fall prey to eating disorders such as Bulimia and Anorexia.
Were older generations smarter?
It drives us back to the fact that tailor stitching is the best and how they were smarter than us. The skirt and petticoat look was classic to Gen Z which was regular wear for the older generations. Though they were not much aware of the fashion and style back then, they looked elegant even in a simple leotard and knew the appropriate shade of it.
Their clothes had a certain value attached to them. Though some old-fashioned styles didn’t make any sense most of their clothes are popular and contemporary even today. The olden couture is coming back in newer clothes. E.g. they had a fewer stock of clothes but they were something that they valued. Today’s generation calls it being a minimalist. It is the same thing but given a different term. Influencers and businessmen use such terms in every commercial to sound like an inspiration. They use terms like haute-couture, hand-made apparel, one-of-a-kind to allure the consumer towards their products. They keep forming a new collection of the new season, different age groups and festivals such as jacket collection, jersey collection, shawl collection, sportswear collection, sari collection, jumper collection, purse collection, casual wear collection and many more. Such is the artistic yet their artistry also has cunning marketing strategies that they also use on Instagram.
A healthy choice of clothes
It is important to choose a breathable textile such as cotton over artificial synthetic clothes. You need to make sure that though the bodice has an impeccable motif and is has a superior trademark; it should be comfortable to you. Some young adults are always on edge as they have to keep up with their trend watching peers. In the rush of doing so, they go on selecting inexpensive products worn by a mannequin or hung on a hanger. The vogue, modern culture is such that it drags poor adults towards an unrealistic illustration of living a life. They may not be in the condition to buy expensive tailored bows, imprint ribbon, pastel colour garment, and lingerie. The effect of all of it may not be understandable to the tender minds now. They might think of this forced modification as a mode of life. Their high heels may make them feel confident for time being. However, such a condition would not last. There will be a point in their lives when they will look for the original version of themselves which is away from this urban pattern of existence.
Eventually, with the support of others, they will know that they are comfortable in whatever waistline they have. The tones and curves of their body will feel beautiful someday. They won’t be stubborn anymore to fit into that outfit and will let go of an unrealistic imagination. They will learn to give emphasis to the quality of their inner self rather than what others label them.
Whether it is modern or vintage, in the trend or not, of a perfect combination or not, whether it enhance their curves or not, whether they are in a gown with beautiful embroidery or a simple apron, they will be secure about their bodies and not let capitalism treat them as an item for their experiment.
Now, when you pass by an outlet of retailer, production or the ones who manufacture, don’t ask for something in size XS, but check for the availability of your size. And if it’s unavailable, walk off without any shame or embarrassment just like you do when you don’t get a fruit or vegetable that you are looking for. We all owe this love and care to our bodies irrespective of our gender or sex. Only when you are this confident, you would be able to make your nightlife colourful and peaceful.
