Love it or loathe it, there is no way to deny that fashion plays a significant part in all of our lives – and this is the case whether you actively follow it or do everything you can to ignore it. The fact remains that clothes are an essential, and in many cases, the way you choose to dress can say a lot about your ideals, beliefs and preferences.

Clothing has been used to symbolize position, status and authority for many centuries – in ancient societies such as Rome, only members of the aristocracy, ruling emperors and magistrates were permitted to wear the color purple, in much the same way that members of a certain organization wear specific uniform or colors today.

The Middle Ages also used fashion to denote status – those who are poorer would be forced to wear mittens due to the affordability, while the wealthy citizens were able to wear gloves, showing off their riches and disposable income.

In our modern world, the majority of people’s tastes tend to be a little simpler, but that doesn’t mean that we are not following fashion – in the United States alone, for example each person will possess seven pairs of blue jeans in their closet – this gives you enough for one per day in a week!

In addition, the humble T-shirt is a very popular item across the globe – an eye-watering 2 billion are sold in every single year!
