What Does Style Really Means

The more I observe the way people dress, the more I can see the diference between fashion and style.  I think fashion is about dressing according to what's fashionable, the latest trend. 
Style on the other hand is more about being yourself, a form of selfexpression that has nothing to do with clothes. Style is whatever you want to do, if you can do it with confidence. Style does not change every 6 months, style remains and its within yourself, the way you wear the clothes, the way you walk, the way you speak, etc.. Style is not consumerist or elitist, It's more about finding who you are and remaining true to yourself..

Some of my favourite quotes about style:

'The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman is seen in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides. True beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It’s the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she shows and the beauty of a woman only grows with passing years.' - Audrey Hepburn

'Style is a reflection of your attitude and your personality'. - Shawn Ashmore

'Fashions fade, style is eternal.' - Yves Saint Laurent

 'In order to be irreplaceable one must always be different.' - Coco Chanel

'Fashion is what you’re offered four times a year by designers. And style is what you choose.' - Lauren Hutton

'Don’t be into trends. Don’t make fashion own you, but you decide what you are, what you want to express by the way you dress and the way you live.' - Gianni Versace

'Style is a way to say who you are without having to speak.' – Rachel Zoe

'Fashion should be a form of escapism, and not a form of imprisonment.' - Alexander McQueen

'Over the years I have learned that what is important in a dress is the woman who is wearing it.' - Yves Saint Laurent

'Clothes aren’t going to change the world, the women who wear them will' - Anne Klein

Funnily enough I had to describe the difference between fashion and style to a friend the other day, coz until then she had no clue what the difference was...lovely selection of images here, its great to see this collection of women as most of them are icons that the fashion/world continues to be inspired by. x
