You don't have to be a celebrity to make a fashion statement. Lady Gaga, Madonna, and Jennifer Lopez are only a few of the famous faces who have changed the face of fashion with their infamous statements. You can too.
A fashion statement is loosely defined as something original worn to make a bold statement about fashion knowledge or draw attention to oneself. Girls who started wearing pencil skirts in the 1950s were making a bold fashion statement in their clothing, as it differed widely from the accepted fashion trends.
Fashion statements can mean a variety of things. They can be a statement of liberation, such as women wearing pants in the 1950s and 1960s. They can be statements of personality, such as funky vintage wear that reflects your aura. They can even be statements on the state of fashion, such as Jennifer Lopez's infamous belly dress.
Making a Statement with Fashion
No matter your reasons for wanting to make a fashion statement, stay true to yourself. Choose clothes that reflect who you are, regardless of fashion trends. Marching to the beat of your own drum is the best way to strike a new fad in fashion.
