Is style just fashion?

Just Fashion

Reflections on style and fashion
Style, even though it corresponds with “fashion”, is really, really not fashion. This, without denying that fashion is an element (no more, if at all) within this space that we call “style”.

From these things, it is clear that style is not all the same fashionable clothes on the shelves, or hangers in stores, in the same fashion stores, and that their pictures adorned the magazines a few months before they arrived in stores.

Luxury radiation

Such prestige, for example, is well expressed in the clubs and clubs of “high society.” So will a man with a white jacket and a blatantly unfashionable golf shirt, with a “style” and the lady next to him with an old-fashioned dress in contemporary fashion terms, with a very clear style.

The source of prestige

As I have already mentioned, the source of luxury is not necessarily the attire (I have already said, outdated). Much more so, the clothing items of this couple, may have received their own prestige from these couples! In other words, in clothing itself, in itself, there is no prestige – but it comes from another source – from the people themselves, but how? Why do they have the ability to radiate luxury to the outside world – and more with outdated clothing?

The discovery …

There is here, I seek to argue, that this is an internalization of social values. In other words, in socio-cultural conditioning.
