INSPIRATION FOR THE PERSONAL STYLE

Internet Fashionistas get the trendiest inspirations for their style from the Street, Printed Magazines and on the 3rd place the Internet. This is really a great ranking for the media Internet which is so young (12 years commercial use) in relation to around 350 years of printed journalistic magazines in Europe about the newest fashion. (In the 1670ies the first fashion magazines have been published; much earlier, around 1520, the first printed series - without journalistic approach - about clothing.)

Shops are an inspiring source for around 10% of the internet users, followed by TV and Friends. Other Media, primarily music and movies, are important sources for defining style, followed by the self confident reflection of the online fashionista on herself ME: in dreams, obsessions, in her mind,... she creates the trendiest styles by herself. The potential of self creativity is high: the users named Design and Art as two other important sources for inspiration for their style: architecture, fabrics, colors, and even yachts inspire them.

ZODIAC

In the voting of the internet fashionistas about the fashion qualities of zodiac signs, the highest consensus reaches the sign VIRGO: it stands in this voting for the pedantic one, everything has to fit together. AQUARIUS is the trendsetter, the early adapter of the must haves; LEO loves exclusivity, wears only the top labels and best quality. AQUARIUS, PISCES, and GEMINI are the signs which are attributed to creativity and a very individual style; AQUARIUS, TAURUS, and CANCER are seen as the comfortable ones, who take it not so seriously to be fashionable: "to be fashionable is not the priority".

MUST HAVE: MATERIAL

Since 2004 the comfortable and practicable cotton is the most favoured material. In 2006 the votes for cotton increased and can be partly explained by the dominant importance of jeans. Cotton is followed by silk and chiffon. Similar to the must haves in clothes (and even shoes), the users vote first of all for “sexy” items: seductive fabrics, which present the body with its sexy lines and curves and let the skin shine through (41,83% in sum for silk, jersey, chiffon). Since 2004 fur becomes more and more important. Stiff falling taffeta is on the last place.

MUST HAVE: STYLE

„An open mind“ is the most important (life)style for the users of online fashion & lifestyle information and entertainment sources and reflects their individual philosophy.

MEN’S STYLE 2006

In 2006 the “Globetrotter” is with approximately 41% the winner of the "Trend leading Men's Style" voting. His adventurous style is similar to the “Nomade”, who was the favorite in the years before. The "Globetrotters" open mind, his love for living with foreign cultures, and the comfortable casual, sporty styling with grungy, retro influences have convinced the users. The "Dandy" is ranked on the second position and is a type of "Crossdresser". The "Samurai" is a new style in this ranking. This urban look is new and different to the bonvivant style of the "Sicilian" in the former votings.

"Dandy", especially the British "Dandy" with this relaxed, irresistible retro flair is ranked on the second position. This man has the genius of Sherlock Holmes. James Bond learned from him how to be cool. The “British” touch comes from check, tweed and new Argyle patterns.

"Globetrotter" in the grungy-classical clothes represent the favorite style of the online users. The adventurer loves to live with foreign cultures. Lime and melon of the refreshing oasis, sandy and earthy beige reflect his Saharan spirit.

"Samurai" is an urban style. His clothes have the obligation to serve the owner. The hardware is modern and luxurious: natural fabrics in cotton, silk, tropical-weight wool translate his classical cut clothes into a vision of future.

MEN’S STYLE 2005

The question „What will be the trend leading men’s style 2005?“ evokes a very clear vote:

The „Nomade“ ranks on the 1st place. He wears for example very informal trousers, a comfortable jacket in chocolate brown over a wide cut shirt – worn outside the trousers. His shoes are made for long city walks. Sporty sneakers with retro touch make the image of the modern nomade complete. His philosophy: keep your mind open. The „Crossdresser“ becomes more important in the 2nd and 3rd quarter of 2005. He is the style architect. He lives in traditional role models but at the same time invents his own individual future. His outfit reflects this kind of personal style architecture for example by very British suits in combination with a sporty vest– filled with downy feathers. The „Sicilian“ represents the bonvivant of the 21st century. He mainly lives for intensive amusements at his spare time. So you can recognize him for example by his tight cut suit in pastel tones, provocative ties and eccentric shoes.
