Uniforms, the perfect fashion statement

Uniforms are everywhere, they have a great variety that significantly influences society and represent different roles in fashion. Its four most important and inspiring categories are military, school, sports and work.

Generally uniforms are designed for the social presentation of the body used by members of an organization while participating in the activity of the organization, that is, to associate people with a certain group and highlight. In one way or another, uniforms have also been considered as the opposite of fashion. The reasons for thinking this is that the design focuses on functionality, control, and tradition, characteristics that are opposite to what fashion wants to reflect focusing more on change, creativity, new trends that last very little and the search for an own identity.

Mainly the most influential uniforms all over the world are military uniforms, these have a constant and strong presence in fashion over the years. Golden buttons, camouflage print and stripes are some of the aspects that stand out in the designs giving a very interesting touch to the pieces. Also sports uniforms reflect power and strength through the fabrics, colors and textures used to make them. Among the clear examples that we can highlight in this way of style we can find Chanel’s autumn-winter 2015 collection, was inspired by the uniform of elegant hostesses and Thom Browne usually has strong references of school uniforms through its collections, among many more.

Pick one color you like (it’s better if you choose a light color like pink or pastel green) then choose your clothing and accessories so that they match the color you’ve chosen. If you want to mix colors, go for white and other pale colors, but make sure the main shade in your whole outfit remains uniform.

Micro purses

Another sweet touch that will go wild in and during 2018 is micro purses. These accessories, while having less space for your things, are more of a cute addition than an utility. You can use them to bring your makeup, or your most important things, and they will look good with the rest of your outfit. They’re also extremely comfortable to carry with you everywhere. Micro purses are the perfect accessory no matter where you go. Pick one that matches your main outfit color, and you’ll look fabulous!
