It is true that there have been an increasing number of people wearing stylish clothes with a view to pursuing fashion. There are several factors contributing to this trend, which have various negative influences on people’s lives.

Despite the high demand for fashionable garments bringing incentives to the economic development of a society, the negative effects of ceaselessly catching up with the newest fashion trend on people’s lives are numerous.

It is often the case that a person ends up working excessively long hours in order to cover their huge expenses on clothing. In addition, people in pursuit of fashion are easily encouraged to be greedy and materialistic because they may find it difficult to give up the happiness resulting from satisfying their material needs.
