Fashion in clothing means the current or prevailing style acceptable to most people, and widely used. Fashions come and go, while others later undergo a redefining process after some time to change their outlook (Kim 15). The decision on what to put on, for most people, depends on the current style of a particular dressing. Experts in the fashion industry refer to the 2000s period as a mash up decade (Bryan 21).

Crocs are common in the fashion industry today, and most people are comfortable having them in the city. In addition to crocs are bleached jeans. [...]
[...] Fashion impacts a lot of things in the society. Beginning the year 2000, fashion develops a rift in social class differences amongst people (Crane 34). It is in this regard that people who afford expensive designer clothes segregate themselves, and belong to a particular ?class'.
