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.

5 Spring Fashion Tips

Spring fashion is always fun. I love the fact that we can wear lighter pieces and style them a bit brighter.

Here are 5 spring fashion tips for your styling inspiration this season –

5 Spring Fashion Tips

Make sure you are wearing the right bra

This is one bit many of us forget to pay attention to. Your bra and the rest of your underwear has the power to make or break any look. So make sure you are wearing the right bra for your size and outfit. The last thing you would want is to run-in your whole look thanks to an ill-fitted bra.

Balance your proportions

When styling your outfits, make sure you balance your proportions. The best way to go about doing this is to add opposite volume, so if you are wearing a pencil skirt, make sure your top is heavier to balance the look. Going for an oversized pieces for the top and bottom will create a shabby look.

Avoid match-matchy looks

Sometimes matchy-matchy looks can be very stylish, especially if the pieces are styled properly. However, I avoid match-matchy looks these days because I find they way too loud. I rather complement pieces than match them.

Work on your signature style

Having a signature style makes dressing up even more fun. Once you have a signature style, your entire wardrobe would work together and you will find it a lot easier to find what to wear. Shopping will also be done strategically since you would know areas that need filling. It takes a while to develop a signature style, but once you do, you will find it easier to maintain and build up.

Mix patterns and prints

I love mixing patterns and prints together to create a signature look. It works every time especially this time of the year and the summer months. I usually mix patterns and prints in the same colour and I love the looks I create.
