Fashion quotes

Fashion changes, style remains.

- Gabrielle "Coco" Chanel

Jargon is the verbal sleight of hand that makes the old hat seem newly fashionable; it gives an air of novelty and specious profundity to ideas that, if stated directly, would seem superficial, stale, frivolous, or false. The line between serious and spurious scholarship is an easy one to blur, with jargon on your side.

- Lehman, David

I base most of my fashion sense on whether or not it itches.

- Gilda Radner

Fashion is a form of ugliness so intolerable that we have to alter it every six months.

- Oscar Wilde

Every morning I woke in dread, waiting for the day nurse to go on her rounds and announce from the list of names in her hand whether or not I was for shock treatment, the new and fashionable means of quieting people and of making them realize that orders are to be obeyed and floors are to be polished without anyone protesting and faces are to be made to be fixed into smiles and weeping is a crime.

- Frame, Janet

Fashion is general. Style is individual.

- Edna Woolman Chase

Fashion is architecture: it is a matter of proportions.

- Chanel, Coco

I cannot and will not cut my conscience to fit this year's fashions.

- Lillian Hellman

Revolution is not something fixed in ideology, nor is it something fashioned to a particular decade. It is a perpetual process embedded in the human spirit.

- Abbie Hoffman

Silence is the element in which great things fashion themselves.

- Carlyle, Thomas

In olden days a glimpse of stocking was looked on as something shocking but now, God knows, anything goes.

- Porter, Cole

A truth looks freshest in the fashions of the day.

- Tennyson, Lord Alfred

If, in looking at the lives of princes, courtiers, men of rank and fashion, we must perforce depict them as idle, profligate, and criminal, we must make allowances for the rich men's failings, and recollect that we, too, were very likely indolent and voluptuous, had we no motive for work, a mortal's natural taste for pleasure, and the daily temptation of a large income. What could a great peer, with a great castle and park, and a great fortune, do but be splendid and idle?

- Thackeray, William M.

I love those historians that are either very simple or most excellent. Such as are between both (which is the most common fashion), it is they that spoil all; they will needs chew our meat for us and take upon them a law to judge, and by consequence to square and incline the story according to their fantasy.

- Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De

A human being fashions his consequences as surely as he fashions his goods or his dwelling his goods or his dwelling. Nothing that he says, thinks or does is without consequences.

- Cousins, Norman

Women thrive on novelty and are easy meat for the commerce of fashion. Men prefer old pipes and torn jackets.

- Anthony Burgess

May we agree that private life is irrelevant? Multiple, mixed, ambiguous at best -- out of it we try to fashion the crystal clear, the singular, the absolute, and that is what is relevant; that is what matters.

- Sarton, May

If the cut of the costume indicates intellect and talent, then the color indicates temper and heart.

- Carlyle, Thomas

Bravery never goes out of fashion.

- William Makepeace Thackeray

It is impossible for a stranger traveling through the United States to tell from the appearance of the people or the country whether he is in Toledo, Ohio, or Portland, Oregon. Ninety million Americans cut their hair in the same way, eat each morning exactly the same breakfast, tie up the small girls curls with precisely the same kind of ribbon fashioned into bows exactly alike; and in every way all try to look and act as much like all the others as they can.

- Northcliffe, Lord
