Usually when people think of fashion in everyday thinking. Think in jeans and sneakers, accessories and costumes work for a night of fun. But fashion is much wider than that. Think of all the different types of dance, for example. From flamenco to ballet, there are influences from fashion to take all of them.
Flamenco dance originated in Spain and is the samba, rumba, foxtrot and more. Typically, women wear long dresses with lots of ruffles and fringes, often leading fans and have flowers in their hair. The men wear high-waisted, tight black pants tailored, high-heeled boots and cropped jackets with bold embroidered fabrics and jewelry. This kind of detail can be seen in designer clothes today. In fact, women are often in short jackets and high waisted pants and can be found in flamenco skirts complete the form and swing in the summer or on the beach.
One of the best films of this year was Black Swan. It told the story of a young ballet dancer has to look innocent in his car to find the darkest black swan exists somewhere between the white swan that everyone can see. The film was shot very well and beautifully cast and managed to reinvent the fashion trend inspired by the ballet de tous tou and slippers. Instead of limiting the feminine aspect of roses, the film inspired by a dancer is darker than the black look, tattoos and long skirts dramatically.
The fashionable styles of the 1920’s have made a big comeback in recent years. Not only as a theme for costume parties, but as part of our daily use. The look trap knee-length skirts, feathers, beads and hats are often integrated into bits and bobs today in women’s fashion. As top hats, tails, and three-piece suits are still adorned by the men of today. The best part of a 1920’s look are the accessories. For women, boas, jewelry, headbands, long cigarette holders and gloves to the elbow. Very feminine, very sexy and completely classic. For men was hats, canes, pocket watches and cufflinks safe. Very masculine, very smart and completely elegant.
Today, many fashion icons are movie stars. They are people who can play in the locker room all day and as a result of an experiment with the elements they encounter. Incorporating accessories made for wear in everyday use. These brave new looks and trends that dictate fashion.
