Best Quotes about Fashion
The average American can get into the kingdom of heaven much more easily than he can get into the Boulevard St. Germain.
W. Somerset Maugham
Fashion wears out more clothes than the man.
All fashions are charming, or rather relatively charming, each one being a new striving, more or less well conceived, after beauty, an approximate statement of an ideal, the desire for which constantly teases the unsatisfied human mind.
If the cut of the costume indicates intellect and talent, then the color indicates temper and heart.
It is fancy rather than taste which produces so many new fashions.
Fashion is the science of appearance, and it inspires one with the desire to seem rather than to be.
He never chooses an opinion, he just wears whatever happens to be in style.
Tolstoy, Count Leo
Fashion is made to become unfashionable.
No doubt the artist is the child of his time; but woe to him if he is also its disciple, or even its favorite.
Schiller, Johann Friedrich Von
Fashions in bigotry come and go. The right thing lasts.
The pursuit of Fashion is the attempt of the middle class to co-opt tragedy. In adopting the clothing, speech, and personal habits of those in straitened, dangerous, or pitiful circumstances, the middle class seeks to have what it feels to be the exigent and nonequivocal experiences had by those it emulates.
When a person is in fashion, all they do is right.
Her hat is a creation that will never go out of style; it will just look ridiculous year after year.
Allen, Fred A.
Fashion is a tyrant from which there is no deliverance; all must conform to its whimsical.
Even truth needs to be clad in new garments if it is to appeal to a new age.
Lichtenberg, Georg C.
You must be in fashion is the utterance of weak headed mortals.
Spurgeon, Charles Haddon
If one considers how much reason every person has for anxiety and timid self-concealment, and how three-quarters of his energy and goodwill can be paralyzed and made unfruitful by it, one has to be very grateful to fashion, insofar as it sets that three-quarters free and communicates self-confidence and mutual cheerful agreeableness to those who know they are subject to its law.
When in doubt, wear red.
You don't learn style from watching people on a runway. Fashion happens every morning when you wake up.
Fashion for the most part is nothing but the ostentation of riches.
I once had a sparrow alight upon my shoulder for a moment, while I was hoeing in a village garden, and I felt that I was more distinguished by that circumstance that I should have been by any epaulet I could have worn.
Henry David Thoreau
Fashion exists for women with no taste, etiquette for people with no breeding.

Fashion is more powerful than any tyrant.
You know, one had as good be out of the world, as out of the fashion.

He who goes against the fashion is himself its slave.
Smith, Logan Pearsall
Fashion is the most intense expression of the phenomenon of neomania, which has grown ever since the birth of capitalism. Neomania assumes that purchasing the new is the same as acquiring value. If the purchase of a new garment coincides with the wearing out of an old one, then obviously there is no fashion. If a garment is worn beyond the moment of its natural replacement, there is pauperization. Fashion flourishes on surplus, when someone buys more than he or she needs.
We worship not the Graces, nor the Parcae, but Fashion. She spins and weaves and cuts with full authority. The head monkey at Paris puts on a traveler's cap, and all the monkeys in America do the same.
Thoreau, Henry David

Shaw, George Bernard

(daring) 1 year before its time, Smart, Dowdy 1 year after its time, Hideous 20 years after its time, Ridiculous 20 years after its time, Amusing 30 years after its time, Quaint 50 years after its time, Charming 70 years after its time, Romantic 100 years after its time, Beautiful 150 years after its time.
I base my fashion taste on what doesn't itch.
I cannot and will not cut my conscience to fit this year's fashions.
You couldn't tell if she was dressed for an opera or an operation.
Cobb, Irvin S.

Only men who are not interested in women are interested in women's clothes. Men who like women never notice what they wear.
Nothing is so hideous as an obsolete fashion.
Stendhal, Henri B.
High heels were invented by a woman who had been kissed on the forehead.
Fashion is architecture: it is a matter of proportions.
Eat to please thyself, but dress to please others.
