An Essay on the Impact of Fashion on Students !
This is the age of fashion, we speak, behave, decorate our houses and our lifestyle in general.
Fashion as described in the English dictionary is “the prevailing mode in such things as are subject to change in form of a style, as in ornaments, etiquette and especially in dress”.
So all pervading is its influence, that it is but natural for students to get afflicted with this symptom of modernity.
In a way it lends variety to our lives, providing an element of excitement in trying out something new. It would indeed be a drab life, if we as were supposed to behave and dress similarly. Change is therefore not only desirable but also welcome, The hero, heroines of the tinsel world and the fashion models are the trendsetters who are the role models for our youth. They are the Icons around whom the ‘fashion’ revolves.
It is but natural that students, who are in their adolescence, get attracted to fashion and try to emulate “their role models. This invariably distracts them from their studies and quite often they rue this throughout their lives. It does not in any way imply, that they should not be smartly dressed. They should dress and behave appropriately, so that they do not distract others as well as maintain the sanctity of the educational institution.
It has also been seen that their indulgence in fashion creates a divide among the haves and the have-nots more glaring, which at times appears vulgar. It also leads to psychological imbalance in them, as they try to ape their affluent friends. However in the absence of means they resort to unlawful and unethical acts. There are thus instances of youngsters taking to crime, just to buy a fashionable dress or suit for being with in fashion.
They must therefore strike a right balance between being fashionable and what is good for them. They have all the time in the world to indulge in this luxury after having finished their education. The present time however should be devoted to studies, for it will never come back. This is because we all know that time and tide waits for none.
