When you finish your education, before you move onto the next step in life, you might consider taking a gap year. But you may still want to pursue your love for fashion. Can you do both? You certainly can! Here are some of our best tips for following your dreams of fashion while taking a break from the stresses of work life.
Travel To Fashionable Places
Our first tip is to think about where you are heading on your travels. If you want to keep up with the world of fashion we recommend you choose destinations that are related to style and glamour. There are plenty to choose from whether you head to the bustling stores of New York or the expensive styles of Paris, you only need to pick where you want to go. Once you’re there you can examine and study the different fashions. You may even like to travel to a few different places and examine the contrasts.
You might be surprised to learn about where the latest trends are originating from. For example, the hijab might have started as a symbol or religious belief but it is now being embraced as a statement of style.
Start A Fashion Blog
When you’re on your gap year, you will be travelling a lot. This can make it difficult to find steady work and that makes paying for your gap year a task filled with tribulations. But, one thing you can easily do is set up your own online fashion blog. On this blog, you’ll be able to introduce your readers to fashions you are interested in as well as keeping up to date with the industry. Who knows, you might even attract the interest of some famous designers? It all depends on how much work and effort you are willing to put into your blog.
