I’m pretty sure we all have heard or read that quote from Yves Saint Laurent “fashion fades and the only style is eternal” and let me tell you, he was completely right! On today’s post, I want to explain in a few bullet points the difference between fashion and style:
– Fashion is about following trends, getting high demand pieces. The style is about including trends to our outfits without losing our essence and adding our personal touch.
– Fashion is an art that it might be difficult to keep up with because trends change seasonally. On the other hand, style is impacted by many longer-lasting factors. The style is affected by religion, politics, culture and subculture, weather, body type, profession, upbringing, etc.
– Fashion is always changing, probably the most fashionable dress you have in your closet right now might be an old piece in a few months. But style It’s about honoring your uniqueness and having your outsides match your insides.
– Fashion is the relationship to the external, it is concerned with what is out there in the stores, runways, etc. Style, on the contrary, is the relationship to the internal, it is about who I am, what do I want to express.
Don’t forget: “Style is a way to say who you are without having to speak”
Until next post loves!
