Social Media: A Fashion

Lately you may be noticing, especially on Pintrist and Instagram, social-media-themed fashion posts. Social media is beginning to make it’s way into the fashion market.

Outfits revolving around social media   systems are entering more than one sector of this market. As you can see in the pictures below, there is everything from quirky t-shirts to high-end fashion to accessories revolving around social media. Below are pictures from some of these sectors.

The posts I tend to see most often deal with nail polish and amusing t-shirts. Pictured below are some examples.

Included in this are a number of tutorial posts. People often post pictures or videos with the steps to paint ones nails or make the t-shirt. Below is one of these tutorials.

It will be interesting to see how this new pattern of posts pans out. What do you think? Do you think it will fade away, become more frequent, or stay the way it is?

  1. Interesting concept…but not my cup of tea, stylewise. If the goal is to try to “advertise” these social media outlets by making them into a fashion statement, it seems like a waste of time and money because they are already so well known as it is.


  2. Maybe the social media companies are the sponsors of this trend. I do not think that is appealing and I don’t think that it will last long because it honestly doesn’t look good on your nails, t-shirt and etc. Also, if you comply to this trend, you are advertising for these companies for free.


  3. This is very interesting, but I can’t imagine wearing Facebook earrings. I have seen the nails on Instagram and it just seems like so much work on something that will probably chip in a few days. This just shows that social media is infusing itself in our everyday lives and combing with other markets like the fashion industry. Although I would never wear anything related to social media, I guess some people like to.
