Fashion and Style? What’s the difference..

Fashion can be easily confused with style but they are very difference. Fashion is all what is going on in the fashion industry; the  trends and what is in vogue. While style is what is going on in your wardrobe. It is your personal taste and how you mix and match your pieces/accessories to create your signature look. With this current pandemic many people are taking a break from the fashion world and working with their work from home signature pieces. If you don’t have a capsule wardrobe, you may struggle in this current time with what to wear.

One of the many beauties of having a capsule wardrobe is that you have a wardrobe that is complementary. You never run out of what to wear with a capsule wardrobe and that is how your personal style is created. With mixing and matching of different pieces and accessories, your style is born. Fashion is what you get in the stores. Style is what you do with it.

Here are some easy ways to spot the differences between fashion and style –

Fashion is your relationship with the fashion world

Fashion is your relationship with the external. It is what you see on the fashion blogs, social media, runaway, on the high street and advertisements. Fashion is what the fashion designers give to you everyday. Fashion is very out there.

Style is your relationship with your signature look

Style is your relationship with the internal. It is what you see when you shop around. Style is your personal taste which creates your capsule wardrobe. Style is very personal.

Fashion is about them, style is you

Fashion is about everything else going on in the fashion industry outside of you, style is what is happening within you.

The best way to look at this is understanding the fact that fashion and Style are very different but they are both needed. You can’t have one without the other and you really shouldn’t. I love my Fashion and I adore my style. They both make me who I am.

Style Icon: Audrey Hepburn

Audrey Hepburn is one of the most stylish women ever, so her being a style icon should come as no surprise. I am surprised I haven’t featured her in the style category already as a style icon. This stylish woman was the real deal as far as fashion and style was concerned by in the day, and her style is still influencing trends today. Audrey Hepburn’s style was effortlessly chic, very stylish and feminine. She knew what looked good on her and she rocked it! This woman is definitely one of my favourite style icons. She is style goals all day, everyday, and I am a huge fan. Do you agree?

Style Icon: Audrey Hepburn

I love how Hepburn could look amazing in pretty much anything, even on her dress down days. The key to her style is in her simplicity. If you have a capsule wardrobe, you easily recreate many of her famous looks. This stylish woman was a huge fan of monochrome pieces and simple chic accessories. She was usually rocking an all black look. Audrey Hepburn loved her black dresses and skirts, and her outfits always stood out for the right reasons. She was and still is a force to reckon with in the fashion and style world. Some may find her simple outfits boring but I think they are super fashionable. Maybe that’s because she had such an amazing charisma.

Aquarius Individual Fashion Sense

Some call us weird, others call us wonderful. Many people we are inventive and quirky, and we are!

I am not so into Zodiac signs anymore, unlike when I was a lot younger. But I do know quite a lot about Zodiac signs and their meanings, especially mine which is Aquarius. I tick most of the Aquarius boxes. I am the humanitarian and philanthropist of the zodiac. We Aquarius do not shy away from lending a helping hand when needed. We are passionate, unconventional, independent and we have the need to express our ingenuity, which is why I blog I guess. Fashion and Style Police is a creative outlet for me, and it has changed my life for the better. It is definitely one of the best things that ever happened to me.

Being an Aquarius also explains a lot of things about my life, my personality and what makes me tick. It also explains my fashion sense. I have been doing some reading of fashion in general, and why we like certain styles. Why specific designs and pieces appeal to some and not others. And I have come to realise that our zodiac signs could play a role in our fashion sense.

 

So what is the Aquarius Individual Fashion Sense all about?

Unconventional and Original

The Aquarius personal style is usually unconventional and very original. We are usually free-spirited when it comes to fashion, which is why we tend to wear pieces in different ways. Having an original fashion sense is amazing, as there is never a dull fashion moment for a fashionista Aquarius chic. The possibilities are endless in the styling department.

Predict Trends

The Aquarius woman has the forward thinking gift, which is amazing when put to fashion and style use. Aquarians can predict fashion trends well in advance and can play around with various styles in the pursuit of the perfect look.

The talented fashion designer Mary Quant predicted trends well in advance. She invented the mini-skirt, creating a uniform for the 1960s women’s lib movement. But she forever gives credit to her clients.

“It was the girls on the King’s Road who invented the mini. I was making easy, youthful, simple clothes, in which you could move, in which you could run and jump, and we would make them the length the customer wanted. I wore them very short and the customers would say, ‘Shorter, shorter.’”
