The way we dress is a 'tell, tell' sign about our personality; having said this, body language as well as our appearance all coincide together. All three are very important elements in which tells others a little about us. If a person is wearing jeans and a tee shirt, this tells us they are laid back and maybe not looking to get into anything today. On the other hand, if we see some one in a three piece suit, this tell us the person is going to work and maybe they may have an important job some where.
If we see a girl dressed skimpy, than this tells us she easy and a free willed person.
Long hair on men use to mean they were pot heads.
I could go on and on.
They way we dress leads people to assumption, in which they become judgmental and put us in to a category or some type of social placement.

Introduction :

- "Art produces ugly things which frequently become beautiful with time; fashion produces beautiful things which always become ugly with time !" ( Jean Cocteau );
- "Fashion condemns us to many follies; the greatest is to make oneself its slave !" ( Napoleon Bonaparte );
- "Fashion can be bought. Style one must have !" ( Edna Woolman Chase );
- "Fashion which elevates the bad to the level of the good, subsequently turns its back on bad and good alike ! "
( Eric Bentley );
- "Fashion is that by which the fantastic becomes for a moment universal !" ( Oscar Wilde )

"Development :

A. Fashion = a mode of dress or overall style:

- by definition, fashion implies a mode of dress or overall style - so a personality ;
- this overall style is accepted as the one that represents a personality's up-to-dateness;
- fashion is not necessarily the same thing as clothes;
- clothes are often used in individual ways;
- so being fashionable is different from using clothes in particular ways;
- the distinction "being in fashion" versus "using clothes in particular ways" is the same as that of "having a personality" versus "being a person"; ( I am a person, by nature; but I become a personality by my own choices )

B. Being in fashion = accepting the prevailing ideas :

- being in fashion is always the acceptance of the prevailing ideas;
- these prevailing ideas change considerably from year to year,
- and most women are not immune to these changes;
- the mechanics of fashion is this : a style once willingly adopted becomes a stigma of outmoded ugliness;
- more than the adoption of the new, fashion is also the certain death ( or, at least deep coma ) of what has gone before;
- fashion's mysterious cycle of death and rebirth, avarice and disgust is pretty well sex-specific;
- women alone are subject to fashion's curious workings;
- fashionable clothes often mark ,in some societies, sharp social class distinctions;
- on the other hand, fashion styles often mark very strong personality distinctions

C. Being trendy = defining the defined sex :

- it may happen that some men now wear earrings, sometimes make-up;
- and it's true man's fashion has passed through brightly-coloured dungarees to the beaten-leather look;
- but compared to female fashions, men's fashion has changed absolutely minimally;
- the fundamental outline of man's clothes and the fundamental elements of male fashion have remained constant for a long time now;
- on the other hand, women's bodies, and the messages which clothes can add, are the receptacle of the social definitions of sexuality;
- men are usually neutral to it, because a male personality is often defined by some other elements as well;
- but women are always regarded as the defined sex;
- and gyrations around women's clothing are part of the constant pressure towards display of these definitions;
- and in almost all human societies, female personalities are almost always defined by fashions and by styles;

Conclusion :

- my own understanding of the mechanics of fashion is :
1). that the constant generation of the new ideas regards previous styles as ugly and repellent / disgusting ;
2). that the previous styles come to signify a past form of behaviour ;
3). that the outmoded personal behaviour is always looked upon as a defunct style;
- that is why, even though I ,by nature, possess a male personality, I tend to keep being in fashion;
- of course, not extravagant, not eccentric;
- but just in good fashion;
- or, to quote Edna Woolman Chase, "in very personal style".

Fashion is a form of art. It's a way for us to be creative every day. Fashion helps us to show a bit of our personality through our appearance. Someone with a fun personality will generally have more "fun" clothes, with brighter colors or patterns. A more serious person will have stricter fashion, with more neutral colors and cut styles. Fashion isn't only what people say is "in style." It's really just how you dress. Fashion makes a statement. It can show what kind of a person you are. Looking good will generally give you more confidence and this attracts people to you as well.

People are relevantly unique from each other. Others are serious while others are humorous. Each individual differ from each other with their lifestyle. Each person just wants to express their own way of saying things. A person’s fashion can make a big impact on his personality. Trend on today’s fashion has a big influence on an individual’s lifestyle.Every day people wake up and wonder what they are going to wear. People use fashion to present themselves to the public eye. What we wear is an image of what we want the world to see.

We chose our style to express our personality. It's nice to be cool and to dress with the times.But what's cool now is probably going to look silly in a few years. Today we tend to dress based on the way clothes appeal to our personal taste. If we like it, we like it. If we don't, we don't. Fashion exists to provide information about ourselves, who we think we are and who we aspire to be. It defines our age, our sex, our occupation and often, our ethnicity. A man walks down the street in a business suit - and we gather information about him. A young girl wears a top and a short skirt - and we form an impression of her.

It's not a bad thing to want to look good. Fashion has always been around. It always will be. Many of the great artists of our generation are fashion designers. They are just like painters or writers, they just use fashion instead of words or pictures. Fashion defines us. It can show how we are as individuals.But fashion may not always reflect people's personalities because sometimes when we look at someone it's about what's on the inside, not necessarily what that person wears.
