Fashion Month: Media’s influence on style

It’s Fashion Month and the media offers so much to fashion fanatics that it is starting to become endless. From magazines to the big screen, there’s no getting away from fashion, and who would want to?

Dressing up for a party or just simply walking from class to class, movies and TV shows have a big impact on how we dress.  One of my favorite fashion movies would have to be “Confessions of a Shopaholic.” Even though it’s not a common favorite for fashion bloggers, the movie is funny and absolutely full of fashion.

Most people like to bring the brighter side into clothing to stand out in the crowd.

Redford freshman Deja Wharton  is a girl that likes to spice things up to the top. Her favorite fashion movie is “The Devil Wears Prada.”

“The way they put things together, with their own sense of style really influenced me to just go with my gut feeling of how I want to dress,” she said.

Most of her fashion ideas come from the TV shows “Gossip Girl” and “America’s Next Top Model.”

There’s a reason to dress up and there’s a reason to dress down. Who said chill clothes weren’t a part of style?

Sophomore Demetrius Patillo from Detroit said, “Just watching TV influenced the way I dressed.”

Even music videos offer a chance to play copy cat with style.

Sophomore Tatjana Jackson from Allen Park said, “My motivation to dress is from Fergie’s music video Glamorous. The way she holds herself in this video is what keeps me motivated in my style.”

“Bonnie and Clyde” is also one of Jacksons’ favorite fashion movies.

The media can play an influence in your outfit decision but be sure to always add a piece of  “you” to the mix.
