Internet

With social media becoming more heavily used worldwide, the internet is influencing people on fashion and how we gain ideas and thoughts from the internet. The internet influences us in so many ways in regards to fashion, from browsing websites to fashion/beauty blogs to youtube videos, to even your emails. We are influenced by all these forms of media, that allow us to get inspiration, sharing ideas as well as shop for new items.

Browsing websites has a huge influence on online shoppers, as this allows us to look at new arrivals/collections from an online retailer, shop for new clothes/shoes and accessories, as well as making wishlists and shopping new trends. We can also discover sale items, promotions and discounts, which allows people on a budget to still feel fashionable and on trend, but for less money!

Fashion and Beauty blogs are another way in which we gain inspiration from the internet. Whether it be new hauls, a tutorial, being alerted about new trends, a wishlist or someone putting together an outfit from various websites. These blogs can inspire and influence us in so many ways, as well as being able to share our own personal styles and fashion tastes.

Youtube is something that is constantly growing and developing everyday, with thousands of new videos posted daily! From browsing youtube, we can gain influences and inspiration through watching a selection of fashion related videos, whether it be haul videos, outfits videos and lookbooks, get ready with me videos, or even from music videos and celebrities!

Lastly, it may not sound like such a bit internet influence, but receiving emails to your inbox does play a role in how we are influenced and inspired. If you're subscribed to certain websites newsletter or mailing lists, you are always sent emails regarding new arrivals online, discount codes and promotions, new trends available, as well as when there is a sale. From these emails, this is when we click and have a browse online, and look for new items and products to add to the shopping bag and then purchase.

How does the internet influence you? What methods do you use to update your fashion and wardrobes? Would you be able to cope without the internet?
