FASHION vs TAWDRINESS

Do you know the difference between Fashion vs Tawdriness? Have you ever thought where ends the line between style and tastelessness? In a world, where is accepted to judge on appearance, one of the most common fears – look ridiculous, absurd or inappropriate. On my previous article – Fashion vs. Social Trends – I wrote about how fashion entirely depends on acceptance and why it is so important to follow the trends.

However, the fashion industry has actively offer such fun products, which are in demand, even if they cost a thousand pounds. Sleepers with kittens, clutches as gums, crop tops with teddy bears – every fashion related person is actively buying with the words “Oh, what a cool thing!”. Let’s be honest and argue about how humour, combined with pop culture, formed the modern fashion and when is it better to quit with jokes.

Humour, fashion and intelligence are closely related. Handle things safely and without excessive reverence, mixed extraordinary accessories, clothes and shoes – one cannot do this without a sense of humour and a drop of estrangement. Many style icons were not just eccentrics, but brilliant and educated people.

Think of Lady Gaga, Peggy Guggenheim, Diana Vreeland or living legend Iris Apfel. The first fashion kitschers were surrealists at 20s of the XIX century, precisely a century ago. Lobsters as a dress prints, buttons in the form of candy and peanuts – Elsa Schiaparelli flirted with public perceptions of poor taste and invented shocking ideas together with Salvador Dali and Jean Cocteau.

350 - FASHION vs TAWDRINESS

In the late ’70s for not a joke, but the rebellion of the punk movement has proposed the slogan “Anti-fashion is fashion”. This idea was realised in the 80th and 90th by Vivienne Westwood, Jean Paul Gaultier, John Galliano and Marc Jacobs. The most radical things were done by Moschino. The former illustrator of Versace wanted to make fun of overvaluation things, deride and undermine materialism and capitalism and founded his clothing brand in 1983, but though soon it itself was turned into a successful business.

Kitsch and humour perfectly meet the needs of a wider audience for something elegant, but at the same time not too bombastic: in such cases, and comes to the aid of bright and funny. A good example is a love of Americans’ stars to “semi-formal” and “ironic” along for secular outlets. However, if you do not take into account the eccentric pop idols and aesthetic views of stylists, a large part of the luxury brands audience still takes itself seriously. And sometimes fashion comes out from the streets. These Adidas Stan Smith trainers are the best example.

    I totally agree with you when you say that kitsch and humour meet the needs of a wider audience. I’m that audience too! And I love a bit of fun when it comes to my personal style!
    Loved your dress and your clutch hun!
    Have a great day

  • I’m obsessed with this outfit!!! Love your personal style!

      Aww, thank you so much! You’re very sweet!

  • Pipesnbuttons

    I think there is a fine line, but as long as you know how to dress appropriately, I think it’s ok! Moschino is always super fun, but to dress like that all the time is just too gaudy and simple. I like to try all styles. Some work and some don’t. I love your clutch tho!

  • Drumul vietii

    I love seeing this type of outfit.
    It looks great on your body!

  • Looks very stylish and trendy. Goes well with the season aswell..Nice!

  • The dress is beautifully cut and very stylish. It looks great on you.

  • Jazmin Thadani

    That purse is so fun!

  • Naomi Trevino

    Wait a great topic! I feel like a lot of things are generic these days. I love his outfit too by the way!

  • True, there are some great fashion that came from the streets, and that shoe happens to be my fave. I just add it to my summer dress to make it more casual. That is a very cute dress by the way, love the ruffle and the colour choice.

  • Hi lovely,

    I totally agree with you, so thank you for sharing!
    By the way, I’m loving that fun clutch of yours, and the location for the shoot was so cool..
    Just adored the whole outfit and mood, keep it up!!

    Thank you for the inspiration
    Have a great weekend 🙂

    I love a bit of fun in a personal style. I think it shows off people’s personalities. You look fab in this outfit

  • I love this post! I think it was Karl Lagerfeld who said something like ‘there is a fine line between being fashionable and being tacky’ and I think your post really relates to that. I think a bit of tawdriness is really fun in an other wise classy outfit, such as this LBD and cute pop art clutch. However, I won’t be wearing head to toe Hello Kitty or teddy bear prints anytime soon haha!

  • What a great post hun! Totally unique and informative. I enjoy reading all the facts that you have mentioned here. I think for me is all around how you feel and how you want the others to perceive you. Because your image is a reflection of who you are. So I agree, there’s a fine line between fashionable and tacky, but I think the most important thing is dress like you, and not try just copy the trends. You have to stick with your pesronality and style in order to be you, and not a copy of someone else.

    Enjoy your week!

    I’ve been wanting to get a pair of adidas for so long but haven’t done enough research. I love these! And I think you are right. Most people think they have style and very few do. And that’s where the tacky comes in. But I love how you styled your outfit and those sneakers.

  • Hey Darling,
    I loved so much this post:) Not just because of your Outfit but I totally relate what you think:)
    The Mini Dress is Beautiful and love the V Neck part:)
    And the Clutch just sooo Fun:)
    I was Looking for a Similar Adidas , Love so much that Model:)

    I love how your posts always dig deeper and look at the bigger picture about fashion. I feel like fashion goes around in circles. What was trendy in the 70s is now coming back in style in 2017!
    P.s. I really like this clutch, I saw it on your Instagram and fell in love!

  • whoever read the writing of Goffman about fashion, knows that fashion is a hot cauldron that only those at the avant-garde can handle. Why? because fashion, just like art, IS NOT AFRAID OF RIDICULOUS. In art and real fashion at the tip point of the summit, does not EVER relate to absurd. There is the common sense for that kind of analysis, but when common sense enter the discussion, we’ve left the fashion territory for the mass. The so call “fashion industry” is in charge of making us digestible versions of that art, that we don’t fully understand, or we don’t even care about. But then, we are in the market territory, not longer in the artistic one.

    I agree that the likes of Galliano and Jacobs took fashion to a pop style that spoke on its own. I liked many of the pieces and some other I did not. I do like your bag and how it is the perfect mix of both art and fashion while not overdoing it for your whole look. xo, Jessica

    We should stay true to ourselfs no matter what:) I love the kicks and fun clutch, its nice to see a bit of humour in fashion!

    Yes so true babe!! With so many trends and different offers in the fashion world some people just follow whats in and sometimes they don’t even match to who they are. Its always so important to stay true to who you are but is also okay to experience new styles as long you find your own on the way:) BTW love this OOTD
