Red leather and denim, classic combo!
|Red leather and denim is a classic combination, but I added a camel coat and leopard print handbag to throw off the simplicity of the look!|
I often talk about fashion on my blog, but never really go in depth about style; well today I was inspired by to talk about the difference between the two! I often display fashion on my blog, I show you guys different trends, and must have items, seasonal shoes and pieces, but I never talk about how to style them. Here is the reason, fashion is just the apparel and shoes you buy, style is how you distinctively, and uniquely display the fashion items you bought. I often post my photos of outfits, and I'll be honest a lot of people just don't get my style and it's simply because it's not a cookie cutter, simple, matching, look. I personally don't like to buy clothes that "match", I like to mix textures, patterns, genres, and I like to put pieces together that someone without style normally wouldn't. I shop at the same stores as most people however, I never look like anyone else! I have a style that I call my own, but it is not predictable. I never wear one type of clothing, like some fashionistas will always wear pencil skirts and crop tops, or dresses with heels, all the time. That type of "style" is too predictable and boring quite frankly so, I personally like to switch it up. One day, I'll be in a chic evening look, and the next day I'll be wearing something urban and edgy...either way, my looks will be worn with confidence.
Style is about developing a look you are comfortable with, that you can identify for yourself. Don't get dressed for others, do it for you and do it the way you want to. When I am styling a client, I know what the client wants or needs, so I wouldn't dress them the way I dress myself, but when it comes to me, I'm free to wear whatever I want, and I do! I recently had to make this statement on my IG and I meant it: "I wish people understood I don't get dressed for approval or to give others ideas of what they should wear I simply put my clothes on because it's what I want to wear...".
So when it comes to fashion vs style, I say don't just shop the trends, but know how to put them together to develop a style that suits you! `
