Belts are the new "it" Accessory

Dana Rogo

When we think about belts, the first thing that pops into our mind is "a belt is used to hold up our pants". The belt ensures that your pants won't fall down and accents your outfit. This comment holds true for the most part however, as we transition into Fall, belts are the new "it" accessory. Women may not need belts in the way that men do but that doesn't mean we should dismiss the accessory. In fact, a belt helps complete the outfit.

A belt can add a polished look when your blouse is tucked into your jeans. It can give you a waist and a beautiful figure when paired with a dress. A belt can also help dress up a cocktail dress or dress down a flowy dress depending on how you style it. Because of the high demand of this accessory, you can grab some great finds at your favorite stores (including Fitz Pullins Inventory Room!). 

Some new styles for the Fall are rose gold chain belts, Gucci and Hermes leather belts with metal hardware, and slim belts with sleek buckles. When we shop, we tend to ask ourselves, "What else can I wear with this?" Luckily, these belts are transition pieces and can add a little extra any way you chose to style it.


HOW FASHION TRENDS START

What is a trend?  A trend is a social process in which style changes. A good example of this is how we dress, of course my first obsession.  If a change is short lived its known as a fad.  Trends typically last long term. A lot of fashion changes are fads because they do not stick around for longer than 2 seasons.  A good example of a trend would be pleats.  They lasted a LONG time and then gone, some people are thankful. 

Trends are created by, you guessed it, TRENDSETTERS.  Think Madonna, Michael Jackson even Miley Cyrus, Chanel ahhh and of course J.Crew.  This may sound simple but for some it is not easy.  Trendsetters COVET change from time to time and in fact, often.  They are open to new originative styles and ideas embracing the new.  Personally, I find most trendsetters to be fascinating and can be found within the creative class.

Most wide spread trends are, of course, started in large cities like New York, Los Angeles and my beloved, Atlanta.  On a more international scale, Paris, Tokyo, Milan and London are filled with trendsetters, trendsetting. 

This important anthropological phenomenon is why I started the Bandwagon Effect.  Here in the southeast we have to embrace and not be afraid of TREND and become more bold with our style and how we approach everything we do.  Let's try new things, adopting an attitude of change is good.  Here at the Bandwagon Effect we are looking for those who embrace this spirit. In the next few days I will post my second feature Jacksonville style "One to Watch".  

I would love to hear from you with your ideas of what is hot, what is now and what is on TREND here in Jacksonville and all over the southeast. 

Stay tuned for more fashion as we continue to roll this Bandwagon down the streets and pick up more momentum on our goal to inspire and feature those who inspire through their bold trendsetting nature.

KEEP UP THE TRENDS AND KEEP FASHION NEW AND BOLD

Keep it Right and Tight

I am in Atlanta for, of course, the apparel mart.  You know, fashion shows, new lines to check out and beautiful people everywhere (more on that later). I have been waking up each day and running about 3 to 6 miles. In the past I have always used the phrase "I'm on vacation" to eat whatever I want (you all know exactly what I'm talking about). Once I return home, I am wondering why I can not fit into my favorite jeans. Did they shrink in the wash? Did I grab the wrong pair? Did Mel (one of my BFF) pack up mine instead of hers during one of our wine nights? NOPE... I packed on some  extra cushion.  I have always preached about "Keeping it Right and Tight". I am here to tell you that I have slipped a bit.I am not going to take this anymore and throughout the trip committed to run or exercise each day no matter what.  I made it a priority to do this each day.  I feel FANTASTIC, who knew? I wasn't listening to my own advice and take it from me, a little work makes the day more fun because you feel like you have actually accomplished something , your head is in right place, and best of all... you can keep rocking your FAVORITE JEANS!!So, like I said, Keep it Right and Keep it Tight

Introduction

Fitz Pullins

Welcome to The Bandwagon Effect. A new blog of culture, fashion and trend.  Headquartered in Jacksonville, Florida, it will not be limited to just Northern Florida, we will delve into the world of trends inside and out from all corners of the globe.  Definition:  The bandwagon effect is where the rate of uptake of beliefs, ideas, fads and trends increases the more that they have already been adopted by others. In other words, the bandwagon effect is where the probability of individual adoption increases with respect to the proportion who have already done so.[1] As more people come to believe in something, others also "hop on the bandwagon" regardless of the underlying evidence.

We will be exploring the phenomenon of trends and how trends can change a city, a country or even the world.

Grabbing ahold of what inspires us and changing our perceptions is what The Bandwagon Effect is all about.  We aim to do so here and help inspire you, show you new things happening around you and far from you that can become trend and change our world. 

We immediately hope to change our headquartered city and inspire all living here that fashion, trends and owning your own identity can feel good, improve our self esteem and help us all live to our fullest potential.

 Jump on my Bandwagon and come along for the ride.

  Xo-Fitz Pullins
