One of the most frequent questions asked by clients is, "What is the difference between style and fashion?"

 

After years of styling clients, this is the best way to explain the difference.  

 Find your personal style, then have the confidence to add a wow, like this gorgeous skirt.

The style items are pieces you purchase to design your wardrobe, whether being classic, elegant, eclectic, bohemian, etc. Style pieces rarely date and can last for years.  These are the items to invest in, leather jackets, coats, blazers and jeans and make up 70-80% of your wardrobe.  This coat above is style. The shoes are the fashion, so we call this style with a twist.  The coat is your main meal (investment piece to be worn for years) and the shoes are desert, (a treat for a couple of seasons.)

Like our personality, we all have our style of dressing.  Our character and our style of dressing are often entwined.

 

Fabulous style does not necessarily involve spending a great deal of money.

Once educated on your personal style and colour, you will know to not waste a cent on styles that don't suit you.  Style is like a brand and once you have worked out what brand you love, stick to it.  A limited budget will also force you to be disciplined and think more carefully about the purchases you make.  

Your style is all about the way you wear your clothes and the condition of the clothes.  It is not just about whether you drape a scarf around your neck, it is everything about the clothes you put on.  Insignificant details become finishing touches that will make all the difference between a prominent and an average impression.  At first, it may seem to involve effort however it is worth every moment because it becomes second nature in no time.

 

 

Fashion is building your character once you have the confidence to project your personality.
