Fashion. It comes and goes at such a rapid speed it is hard to keep up. Fashion houses churn out new collections every season, often several seasons in advance. Brick and mortar shops have sales at the end of the season, the start of the season and mid-season. It all gets so confusing.
Fashion is important. The right clothes create a good first impression. The wrong clothes leave you being followed around by store detectives and sometimes even accused of crimes you didn’t commit and not just fashion crimes either. Hush Style makes it easier to keep on top of the latest trends in the world of fashion with designer clothing at affordable prices.

There’s a myth that circulates that goes along the lines of high-quality designer fashion is out of reach for most. Social media influencers and celebrities snap pictures of themselves with the latest must-have item and plaster their social media with them. Often times, they’re given the item free of charge in exchange for promoting. When you go to buy the item, you discover it is two months’ wages.
Searching online might bring you to affordable cheap knock-offs but that’s no better than buying the generic high street version. In fact, it can be even worse with the lack of regulations in the counterfeit world. Authentic designer clothing isn’t out of reach. It can even be on-trend too if you know where to look.
Avoid Fast Fashion
Fast fashion is the greasy fast-food burger of the fashion world. Sure, it’ll fill you up. But at what cost? By the time fast fashion imitations hit the shelves, the item is already out of fashion and the influencers are promoting something else.
There have even been rumors of copyright infringements in the fast-fashion world with some brands stealing social media posts and printing them on tee-shirts. The cheap, low-quality clothing has to be made by someone. These workers are often exploited. Fast fashion is made to be worn once and then thrown away, joining the greasy burger wrappers in a landfill. Despite the physically cheap price tag, the actual price is too high for something that is already out of style before it hits the shelves.
To be a trendsetter, you need to ditch the fear. What becomes the latest must-have might seem a bit weird for the early adopters. Before you know it, the fast fashion brands will be pushing various imitations while you’ve discovered the latest IT item.
What appears in catwalk collections and for consumer consumption are often different things. What works on the catwalk is too impracticable to work on the street. Look for more practical items from the high-end designers. Not everyone lives near a fashion boutique so when shopping online, use an authorized retailer. Online shops are able to offer big discounts on designer trends. Check the item is authentic. Look for customer service phone numbers.
