What is Fashion?

What is Fashion?

Fashion is a way individuals express themselves. They express themselves through their styles of clothes, shoes, accessories, makeup, and hairstyles.  Neicy's Accessories specializes in the expression of accessories. Fashion is defined by the fashion industry as "what is trending". 

The French word "Mode" which means fashion dates back to 1482, while the English word denoting something "in style" dates only to the 16th century.  Elegance began to appear in content in the 12th and 13th century.

According to fashion scholar Susan Kaiser, everyone is judged by their attire and how the garments look on the body.  Garments will appear different on the wearer depending on the body shape, or whether the garment has been washed, folded, mended, or if its new.  I always tell my daughter, "Everything in your size if not made for you". 

The accessories market is booming and five of the trending accessories for 2023 are: Big Earrings, Metal Bags, Striking and Bold Sunglasses, Glamorous Chokers, and Comfortable Loafers.
