Did You Know?
Woah, not so fast! There are some pretty fun facts about fashion today you might not know about. Every year sees over 80 billion articles of clothing produced and sold around the world. T-shirts, pants, jackets, sweatshirts, scarves, you name it! When it comes to the United States you can already find people having interesting things to say about dressing down. One study found over 60% of Americans claiming to own more than 10 t-shirts in their wardrobe. How many do you have in your closet?
When in doubt? Just throw on a t-shirt! These are wildly popular for a good reason, being easy to wash, easy to stock and able to be mixed and matched with the best of them. Tuck a baggy t-shirt into a pair of high-waisted shorts for a cute casual look that’ll fit in anywhere or pick a splashy graphic t-shirt with a pair of colorful skinny jeans to be the trendiest girl in the class. A recent study found clothing accounts for over 50% of the budget for back-to-school supplies in the United States. Next time you’re out shopping, grab a few different colored t-shirts to give you plenty to play with in the schoolweek.
It’s going to get cold soon. Are you ready for rain and snow? Knit hats are extremely cute, able to be worn with just about anything to keep you warm and looking good. A study on fashion and self-esteem found over 60% of women respondents admitting they have a hard time finding a cute new look on a daily basis. The great thing about accessories is they can just be layered on everything. Throw on your knitted beanies with your favorite sweatshirt and leggings or use them to top off your jacket and jeans combo.
Speaking of leggings! When you’re tired of stiff pants but are finding it’s getting too chilly for shorts, leggings are there to give you coziness and comfort in one handy package. The back-to-school shopping season is the second largest seasonal shopping period of the year when it comes to pure spending, which should say something when you consider how crazy Christmas and Halloween gets! Leggings come in a huge variety of colors, textures and patterns, able to be layered beneath a baggy sweater, long t-shirt or even a pair of matching shorts.
Last, but not least…it’s time to up your sweater game. The cooler weather is calling for layers and plenty of cushy cotton, so check your closet and see how you can fit some pullovers into your usual routine. The average woman is said to spend a whopping $125,000 on clothing throughout the majority of her lifetime. Why not make sure your cute girls fashion leaves a lasting statement? Pullovers are useful when you’re too tired to do much with your look, but still want to appear trendy as you head to class and eat lunch. In fact, mix and match your sweater with a knit beanie and some leggings for a truly cool look!
