Kitsch: It's Ugly, But It's Fashion

Kitsch: It's Ugly, But It's Fashion

According to famous dictionaries, Kitsch is defined as “art, objects, or design considered to be in poor taste because of excessive garishness or sentimentality, but sometimes appreciated in an ironic or knowing way.”

I think the best way to describe it is with the word “eccentric.” Kitsch is often considered as ugly, but is actually fashionable. Taking the risk to dress as a rainbow is part of becoming a Fashionista. Wearing backpacks, shoes or coats as part of your outfit can become you a lover of this trend.

The Kitsch party is listed with many designers like Dolce & Gabbana, Moschino and Alexander McQueen. Recognized for their colors, extravagance, and of course, the fun into their clothes.

Mixing plaid prints, flowers, and dots in a single outfit is scary, but with a good combination of colors can be achieved. The problem is that in this trend less is never more, even more is never more.

If we see how fashion worked in the past, we will realize that Kitsch has always existed. If you do not believe it, look at the sheets that your grandmother no longer uses, they are very colorful and full of flowers; Or the crockery you never understood why you couldn’t use it. It’s vintage, but a bit uglier.

Many artists dress up with this trend for red carpets and yes they look great, like Katy Perry. Even Baddie Winkle is super famous on Instagram for his quirky Kitsch style.

It is a challenge to dress in an eccentric way, but it is always good to amuse with the clothes. I love to see famous people who leave their comfort zone to walk in red carpets or along the streets of their city.

Personally, since I discovered Kitsch I can not stop thinking about colors, I can not even use black and white without adding at least color to my nails. Now this is part of my life.

  1. Thanks for share your thoughts about this ugly style but seriously I just wearied that dress and I didn’t feel so ugly !

  2. Since here you talked about quirky Kitsch style and how this fashion style seems a little ugly or not modern. When you look deep into this fashion style to my knowledge I think of it as a mixture of some modern trends. For instance plaid skirts is common in this style, Plaid skirts are a major part of E-Girl Fashion style and we can definitely see the hints of it in Kitsch styling. Overall great article about a newly trending fashion style which is catching up to the young generation and even making its way to the red carpet.
