Zeitgeist two

In my first blog post I talked about how new lifestyle trends are being an influencer of the Zeitgeist. I think that people these days are being more aware of the environment and this is resulting in a change of clothing styles. Designers are using clothing that are “green” and more people are starting to care about what happens to clothing when its no longer useful to them. For example, the company SVILU only uses locally produced organic fabrics to make bohemian styled clothing. The clothing is very relaxed and simple which is exactly what I think an environmentally friendly person would want to wear. In my last blog I also talked about people are more concerned than ever with being comfortable in their own skin. People are starting to feel confident in them to show more skin when wearing clothing. One designer who has picked up on this trend is Tom Ford, whose 2015 spring collection was extremely revealing. After his collection came out two celebrities, Miley Cyrus and Rihanna were seen wearing two of his more revealing dresses. Both, Miley and Rihanna are very confident with showing of their bodies and this has influenced ordinary people to do the same.

  1. I agree that people are getting more revealing, with crop tops, mini skirts, deep v-necks and cut out skirts and dresses (I see a lot of those on the Kardashian and Jenner sisters).
    It´s funny to look at people wearing these in Iceland though, especally now in winter, but the weather doesn´t stop anyone from wearing those in the weekend pub crawl, they wear what they want.

  2. Both times you’ve mentioned the green movement and revealing clothes, do these two trends overlap? Will they overlap? Do they share any influences?

  3. This is a really good point. I actually have not thought about this before however now that I think about it, revealing clothing is actually a trend itself. Once a celebrity or multiple celebrities wear a revealing dress (or dresses) to an event, the next day people are reverting back to revealing clothing. It’s like one of those trends that comes in and out of style. But you make a great point about people feeling confident in themselves when these celebrities wear revealing clothing. I think in a way it’s a good thing for people, it helps their self images.
