Have you ever wondered what’s the difference between style and fashion. Why does it matter, or why should you have to dress according to what other people think anyway?
Fashion: a popular trend, especially in styles of dress and ornament or manners of behavior; the prevailing style(as in dress) during a particular time; a garment in such a style always wears the latest fashions; social standing or prominence especially as signalized by dress or conduct men and women of fashion.
So let us first start with fashion, the ins and outs of it, what it means, and what role it plays in our lives. Personally I believe that fashion is just a statement, its just the one thing that someone thinks is live at the time and puts it out for everyone else to latch onto. I don’t believe that fashion is really anything personal, nothing personally made for each and every individual, yet fashion is something to be kept up with,it is something that helps you stay current. Now that, I feel is important, staying current and on top of what fashion is. Most women today are very concerned if they are keeping up with what the latest fad is and that, they think is what’s going to keep them apart of the in crowd. No one is ever really concerned with standing out or making their own personal statement, which we will get into a little later. I am not by any means saying that fashion is not important or trying to discount how much it really means to the human community. Fashion is important, I just don’t think it is everything. In my opinion, fashion is the title, but style is the book. You can always have an astonishing title but its what you do within the chapters that makes the difference, that’s what determines whether or not you will sell any other books. Fashion is just a guide, but what you do with it is what makes the loudest statement.
Style: a DISTINCTIVE appearance, typically determined by the principles according to which something is designed, design or make in a particular form.
Now style, that’s important, that makes a difference, and that is what truly makes fashion. Style takes fashion and makes it your own, there is not a wardrobe consultant out there that has made it because they dressed their clients right off the runway. If you ever truly pay attention a difference is always made and you can normally tell a certain stylist’s work because it soon becomes apparent what their style is. Whether its in the jewelry or the type of clothes they wear and choose for the customer at hand. They even choose a style for each client, by making sure that each person stands out and makes a statement that is noticed on the blogs and by the magazines. Style is your OWN, its who you are, who you’re destined to be, and what your trying to say at the present time. This is how you show the world who you truly are without ever really saying anything. The reason why I always took fashion and style so seriously or why I fell in love with it, is simple, I don’t truly like to speak and in all honesty a lot of attention is not really my thing, but if I can make a statement and make a difference without ever saying a word, then I have fulfilled my purpose. Something that I try to make sure all of my clients know and understand, before I can style you is, I have to get to know you. That is sometimes the thing that people miss the most, style is all about who you are, what you like, where you go, what company you keep, and what you want people to remember. Most people put on clothes and think thats it, but please believe someone has something to say about you have or had on when you leave the room. So the next time your going out, consider all things listed and choose wisely.
Below you will find some of my top picks for this week.
I am so in love with paperbag pants right now, they are so cute and can be worn in so many different ways. This pair from New York & Company passed the test for me. The thing that I love the most about them is the versatility and how many different ways and places they can be worn. Now me personally, I would wear it with this really cute top I found at H&M.
Having a night out with the girls or just going out to a bar or party with your man this one piece from Forever 21 is a pick in opinion. Its cute, comfortable, and casual or dressy, believe I know…….I tried it on and purchased it.
Those are just two of my choices for the week. I love clothes and how they come together when done properly……….can sometimes make me melt.
Have a good week guys and remember to inbox, message, or comment any questions or concerns.
Put effort into your wardrobe, thought into your clothes, and finesse your appearance. –Jai-
