More and more people are finding it increasingly important to wear fashionable clothes. Is this attitude to wearing clothes a positive or negative development?
Mankind has come a long way since the beginning. One of their first inventions was clothing. In the past, clothes used to be a protection and a necessity, shielding humans from nature. In the modern world, however, clothes are not for survival anymore. They are in a way, cosmetics. Also, people are debating whether the trend of chasing after fashionable clothes is positive or negative.
First of all, Let us talk about the positive aspects. It is undeniable that fashionable clothes can boost the economy. Fashion encourages more and more designers and workers which in turn create job opportunities. Therefore, the attitude that fashionable clothes are becoming gradually more important will encourage people to apply for jobs as designers and workers. In recent years, the number of designers has risen significantly along with the number of fashion show. This attitude also allows people to be creative on how people are looking at clothes.
It is expected that some national cultures will change for the better. On the other hand, this attitude has its drawbacks. Most noticeably is people from lower class are forced to buy expensive items just to be accepted by others. It is important to have nice suits and shoes for them to be accepted. And while fashionable clothes might change the culture. It might hurt the countries tradition. As a result, people tend to wear them instead of their traditional cultural wear which shows cultural diversities. To sum up, the perspective of society about importance of fashionable wear is changing and I thinks this change is negative. Although it is true that such an attitude would bring several benefits but the drawbacks really outweigh it. To me, clothes should be simple and affordable for everyone.
