“Style is very personal. It has nothing to do with fashion. Fashion is over quickly. Style is forever.” – Ralph Lauren
There is no one else on the planet who has the same style as you; they may be similar, you may have the same taste in clothing, and you may have the same style icons, but what you do with all that is completely unique.
You could walk in to a store and buy the latest outfit straight off of the runway, and be fashionable, but being stylish means making that outfit your own; in means being comfortable and confident in your sense of self, it means knowing who you are, and having your clothes reflect that.
“…You can have no money and have great style. You can have a lot of money and have great style. More often, you have a lot of money and you have terrible style; and you just plaster yourself in what you think you are supposed to be wearing and you’ve lost yourself. I actually hate to see my designs worn head to toe the way I show them on a runway… Style, for me, is someone who figures out who they are, what works on them, what they feel good in, and develops that, develops their character, and the outer expression of their character is what is style…”– Tom Ford
