What is the difference between style and fashion? A perfect definition is a memorable quote from Yves Saint Laurent; he says “Fashion fades, style is eternal.” A new trend comes and goes every season and is not ordinarily individual. Many people will wear equivalent trending attires. Style, on the other hand, is personal, you may have a similar style to someone, but you probably will not look identical to that person all of the time because a style is personal and you take fashion and use it in a way that fits you. The primary interest in a fashions point of view is what is currently out there, what is popular. You may LOVE bootcut jeans, but bootcut jeans aren’t trending right now. Does that mean, you should stop wearing bootcut jeans? No, because that is your preference for clothing style. There are many different types of fashion style, and it is best for you to define which style type you are.
Your taste or preference of clothing style may not fall exclusively to one group of style, but you’re it will favor mostly one style. Defining your style does not mean that you cannot wear any other garment from the other types of style. Establishing your style will help you to build your closet and understand who you are as a person effectively so that you can be satisfied with your wardrobe and so that you can look and feel confident in your wardrobe.
