Style vs. Fashion
Once you figure out your style, the sky is the limit. It is about having clothes that reflect you as an individual and don't follow what mainstream society is doing. The same thing goes for trends. Trends are over in a flash. Don't go out and spend a lot of money on something that will be out style in a month or two. Find pieces that will stay classic for years. It is okay to have some trendy items in your closet just please don't go trend crazy. If you are really into chevron prints, get one chevron top. Don't get a chevron top, skirt, dress, bag, earrings, etc. That is trend overkill! Fashion is trendy. Fashion is what you see on the runways in New York, Paris and Italy. Style is Audrey Hepburn, Grace Kelly, Jackie O. These are ladies that women today try to emulate because their style was classic and timeless. Enjoy your clothes be fashion forward, but keep your closet about 90% classic/timeless pieces and 10% trendy pieces.
