the 16th Art: The Art of Dressing

64 Arts

To choose garments and jewels to embellish the body, according the place and circumstances.

Who’s up for a little window shopping?

The art of dressing can be summed up in one word: STYLE.

And style is a very personal thing. While it used to be that a select few designers or magazine editors would determine silhouettes, hemlines and palettes which the majority strove to emulate, these days the number of designers is multitudinous, the off-the-rack clothing options nearly unlimited and the diy-aesthetic so entrenched that having a personal style is more achievable than ever. The globalizing effect of the Internet is not to be ignored, either!

In fact, why don’t we start there?

I don’t consider myself a fashionista or trend-follower (I tend to choose what I like from what’s available and ignore the rest), I enjoy following a few fashion blogs that keep me up on what other folks are wearing while existing on their own wonderful wavelengths:

Gala Darling

Doe Deere Blogazine

Jazzi McG

Nubby Twiglet

Even though I don’t share these ladies’ style preferences, I still love seeing how they put outfits together and live their style choices.

Do you have any fashion bloggers in your RSS-closet? Do you share their style or just like to look?

  1. I don’t have any fashion bloggers in my feed but I have a daughter who wants to work in the fashion industry when she graduates. I’m sure she would love exploring your links. My style is pretty simple. I love comfortable classic clothes in neutral tones.

  2. I don’t have any fashion bloggers I follow. I know what I like, and that’s what I buy. Every now and then a new and fun thing will grab my eye, and I will try it. For the most part I like classic lines from the 40s and 50s, so that’s what I look for.

  3. I actually do have a few fashion blogs in my RSS reader, but I just like to look. I kind of like my mom, stuck in my own way of dressing. 😀
