This is the second in a series about making the fashion transition to fall.

One thing you have to love about the information age: it has equalized the playing field of fashion. Everyone can buy and be influenced by fashion the world over. It’s a bigger universe to draw on and we all have access to it. Despite the age-old tendency to localize fashion, New York, L.A. and Paris are no longer the fashion epicenters of the world.

Designers are everywhere. Clothes are more affordable. Originality and personal expression are more valued than ever. In this environment, a Midwest thrifter with a judicious eye can easily upstage the wealthiest fashionista in New York because money and location don’t mean as much as they used to. You can have all the money in the world, but it doesn’t mean you’ll know how to put yourself together in an interesting way.

As proof, this Thursday’s (September 6) Fashion Night Out has become a global sensation. If you’re just hearing about Fashion Night Out, know this: chances are you can find a local event to attend no matter where you live. Here in Indy, there are dozens of locations hosting the biggest retail fashion party of the year. It’s a great way to get a jumpstart on planning your fall and winter wardrobe. Find Fashion Night Out event in your area.

Check out this infographic about the most casual and best dressed cities in the U.S. published by Dress Code Finder.com. It doesn’t seem quite accurate to me, but they allowed me to add my two cents in their story. You can, too!

What do you think? Is there such a thing as a dress code in this day and age?

Life is short. Wear the good stuff.
