There is an expression here in Jamaica that goes "Fashion ova Style", I think it was coined over 10 years ago when I was in High School by a popular artiste at the time. I was at a Fashion & Finance Seminar last week and that same expression came up again and I've realized that people have no idea they are two different things. Below is how you can tell the two apart.
Fashion is anything that is in season or the latest things being worn by a mass of people. Right now , the popular thing seem to be skinny distressed Jeans and those really long structured Coats/Jackets.
Style is when you take what is popular and add your personality and "zest" to bring it to life. One person might wear the Skinny distressed Jeans with Heels , a button down shirt and statement accessory piece; while another person might pair it with a white shirt and a pair of Vans.
It is interesting to note that most people tend to link Fashion with negative attitudes;super expensive clothing , super skinny models , b*tchy people , stuck up and so on. Did you know you can have the most Fashionable outfits and still look terrible? The trick is to not jump and purchase something that is in without adding your own personality and also thinking about your own body type. I for example haaaaate those tight stretchy one piece suits which are fashionable now simply because I don't think they will look good on my body type.
Fashion can be fun as long as you don't get carried away and add your personal style to it!
