Do you have style or are you fashionable?
Believe it or not there is a difference between style and fashion. Fashion is not style and style is not fashion.
What is Fashion?
Fashion changes over and over again. You can be fashionable and where the newest fashion trends out there but never be stylish.
Taking fashion too serious can possibly make you a fashion victim.
What is Style?
Style is .. Not being afraid to stand out!
Women of style usually have a trademark, and are recognized by it. Like a great black jacket, or maybe a mix of colors that look amazing on her.
They’re the ones that would take an item of clothing and wear it in a way that it was never intended to be worn.
Style is .. Knowing when to stop.
For example, many people love animal prints.
The difference between stylish and tacky is wearing one, maybe two pieces, at a time. The secret to being well dressed is underdressing. Allowing you to wear distinctive clothing that stands by itself.
Style is .. Going with what works for you.
If it feels comfortable, then you are going to get a lot more wear out of it.
Even though something is right off the runway, unless you feel confident in it, leave it alone.
Style is .. Not always obeying silly fashion rules.
Style is .. A good fit.
Keep an eye out for how clothing should fall. You should know where those pants should fall or how that jacket should hang on you. Also size is a matter that changes based on the clothing item, or the fabric, or the designer. Pants made by one designer in a size 8 might be a size 6 in another brand.
There is a backbone to fashion known as “classic dressing.” It allows a woman to remain stylish throughout every season of her life. These are the women that are not wearing outrageous fashion from the runway, or not following the fashion editorials on magazines. They have they’re own signature style and know what looks right and what doesn’t.
Fashion magazines themselves never meant to be taken literal on every page.
Are you making fashion your own & making it style?
Or are you following the rules of fashion?
