On the Street....Ninth Ave., NYC

So what is more important, fashion or style?

I attended a few fashion shows today and I have seen some very "fashionable" young ladies. But, they always come up short when compared to the young ladies doing their own thing.

I know what this season's trends are suppose to be and this young lady doesn't really fit into any of those forecasts and yet she really stood out from all the other pretty young things.

Wow that is fantastic, she looks amazing! I feel like you have to do you at all times, when ever I try to get too trendy with something I'm not comfortable with I look ridiculous.

Fashion is important if you want to be accepted by others, style if you are comfortable in your own skin and know what suits you. Style wins in my book by a country mile.

Hands down, no question...style is more important. Fashion changes daily; style is forever. :-)

Definitely something to be said for personal style. She looks so confident!

When someone does they're "own" thing it says, "I know who I am & I don't care what you think!"

Love it!

i love the contrasting colors, the wide brimmed hat, and the loose fitting jeans.

Oh! I love those trousers - are they denim or cords? either way, gorgeous.

I work in a Fashion School midtown and I am always much more inspired by my students than the trend-flockers on 5th by Bryant (in the past) or near Lincoln Center now!

 

Anonymous Marianne said ... (3:07 PM) : 

Wow, that is a great look. I love the floppy hat!

She's walking proof that style is more important than fashion. After all, by the time something becomes a trend, everyone is wearing it. It's gals like her who can help create trends.

I'm glad you made this point, although in this case I'm not that taken with her choices. Obviously, she's a lovely young woman with beautiful hair.

 

Anonymous Valentine said ... (3:09 PM) : 

Looking fashionable is nice.
Looking stylish is great.
But I think what anyone who is really passionate about clothing and the opportunity that our outer appearance provides for expressing ourselves and inspiring new modes of thought hopes to achieve a synthesis between the two--to take the fashionable trends and twist them, corrupt them, alter them to create a personal sense of expression that transcends the latest craze. To be both fashionable and stylish is to prove that you are interested in the current innovations of the fashion world, yet still have the capacity to express your personal style through a medium--ANY medium, really--catered to a large group of people. If you truly possess style, it should be able to shine through any fashion trend you experiment with.

I find it sort of sad, that some people chose to follow trends instead of their own style. If you happen to like a trend then I get it..but to just follow it sort of shows your personality. Style before fashion, always.

Style, because it sets the fashion!

I love her color combinations. She could easily take that palette into interior design. I'm thinking kitchen with houndstooth tile and vintage-style appliances...

well actually the high street as well as many runway shows scream 70s and trousers of all sorts are making a 'come-back' so I really find this young lady 'trendy'. well stylish too, but for me this style is very much in trend.

Neither. Dress how you want to dress. Whether that's plucked right out of the trend bucket or the t-shirt and jeans combination. Besides, we're talking about fashion here - everything is recycled. There's no way that the girl you photographed woke up and wasn't aiming for "fashion".

 

Anonymous The Refined Savage said ... (3:35 PM) : 

I don't get it. I know lots of people try too hard and wind up as fashion victim but just putting on a hat doesn't translate as style to me. Sorry.

Style is more important because it transcends fleeting fashions. Style is a combination of the elements you've chosen to wear and the ease (or confidence) that comes from knowing you've chosen what works for you.

I'm no hypocritical: I buy Vogue and like to see what are the trends of the season. But I adapt them to my budget, to what I already have in my closet and, most of all, I like to look pretty in what I wear.

That's what this picture is all about: looking nice... quite simple I guess...

Blogger Taleah said ... (4:10 PM) : 

Technically, she is following some of the trends this fall. She has the button down blouse, flares are on their way back in, and hats and clutches are huge. Perhaps, it's the way she has put it together that makes it her own. She looks fantastic!

 

Blogger Mademoiselle Robot said ... (4:10 PM) : 

I definitely would take style over fashion/trends anytime and I love this girl's outfit.

However, I think it does fit within the current trends, namely the 70s trend. She just made it very personal rather than just buying the latest Chloe trousers and blouse.

 

Anonymous Mia said ... (4:11 PM) : 

Are you kidding me? She screams trend the clutch the hat 70's inspired

 

Anonymous Sarah Eagle said ... (4:12 PM) : 

I absolutely love the cut of the pants and how perfectly they fit her. Plus, the contrast of the color of the pants with the beautiful burnt orange bag and grey floppy hat is so pretty.

Style is ALWAYS more important. I hate seeing looks worn right off the runway or off a mannequin. It's what you DO with the fashion that's important.

I love flare jeans.They make legs seem higher than they really are!I like 70s look.For a person the most important thing is the style.You are more comfortable if u have ur own style.If you shop from Zara for example,want it or not you will buy clothes that they are inspired from fashion shows.For me style is more important because it reflects ur personality.I dont prefer a personality covered with fashionable clothes!I dont mind if flare jeans arent in fashion this year,I love them and I'll wear them:D

Sometimes what's in doesn't work for everybody. I find that wearing one's own style that is flattering for them and still stylish (though not quite cutting edge or trendy)is completely acceptable. Like you said, it helps a woman stand out in a sea of women all going for a similar look.

 

Anonymous grace said ... (4:39 PM) : 

If you're young and very tall, you really can wear anything you choose and pull it off. To me, this photo illustrates this more than it illustrates superb style.

This is very much high street trendy. Not very creative at all.
And the jeans fit a little too tight at the butt. They kind of look uncomfortable.

I think they both have their own place, but it's always tragic when someone spends all of the their time (and way too much money) on the latest and greatest without ever looking like they have a good style.
Style is always going to be more enticing if you ask me.

Style is much more important. But it has to fit you and sometimes fashion comes in to help because the stuff that's fitting your personal style best is to be found much more easily.

I always loved the style of the 40ies, 50ies and sixties but I didn't know how to get my hands on the clothes. Now that fashion is influenced again by this era, it's a lot easier for me to get my stuff.

She looks fantastic and has her style down and the necessary confidence.

Blogger SabinePsynopsis said ... (5:38 PM) : 

So true. Fashion can support/inspire your style, but if one doesn't have any (own style) it's easy to become a boring follower. This lady exudes doing her own thing, which is eternally stylish.

Blogger Emily McGuire said ... (5:57 PM) : 

I think this look fits a really obvious trend this season; flare-cut jeans with a 70s vibe.

You're not born with style; it's learned and acquired through socialisation. Some people are just deemed "better" at it than others, just like some people are better at Maths than others.

Fast fashion is not the only kind of 'fashion'; fashion refers to the ephemeral, transient nature of the system to generate CONSTANT CHANGE. Developing one's style is a process of turning-inward to understand and embrace oneself in the context of one's surrounds, less dictated by the perpetual change driven by the heirarchal system and more so by the self.

I think she fits into the fashion trend this year pretty well... the vintage silky shirt and the HAT, let alone the BUTT! :P

Wide leg pants or wide leg jeans are all the same to me!! They are classic!

But what i love the most on her is that orange red oversized clutch which seems a total OUT for this season.

She is a very striking young woman indeed. I'm particularly taken with her blouse which is marvellous with the jeans.

I'm not sure that fashion and style are the same sort of entity. Asking which is more important seems not unlike asking whether dinner or saucepans is/are more important. As saucepans are a tool for getting dinner on the table, fashion is a resource that can be used to express style. But it's only one of many resources. Fashion can be bought (if one has the money), style takes work/thought, even though it looks effortless.

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:11 PM) : 

Everyone can follow the latest trends, there's nothing hard about that. But creating and keeping your own personal style, that is something that everyone should desire. I admire anyone who has their own personal style, and doesn't care about what's cool at the moment.

Personal style is more important than fashion. While fashion is important to inspire and show historical design and try to teach aesthetics, personal style is individual, can be timeless, and is adapted by the individual to fit their life stage, means, and creative expression. It's so much more interesting and inspirational to me.

I know what you mean... sometimes i see women wearing things i could never pull off. Its just "their" style. 1- she's attractive. 2- she's got an amazing figure which she knows how to dress. 3- she got some classic items on in the right colors (neutrals)- silk blouse, leather bag, chic sunglasses, and the hat looks substantial (wool maybe?). A baseball cap would have thrown the look off. As far as the pants, when you have an ass and legs like that its hard not to look amazing in whatever you put on. She's got style for sure tho!

she looks stunning. Is a kind of urban sophistication and elegancy. I love it.

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:49 PM) : 

She's not so far off from this season's trends. The oversized day clutch has been very popular, and the wide/boot leg jeans are making a comeback.

I think it's all about owning your fashion choices; if it shows that you love what you're wearing it doesn't matter if it's trendy or not.

 

Blogger kayang said ... (8:51 PM) : 

I kind of disagree with one of your statements... I feel like she is doing something that is very "in" at the moment. But that doesn't take away from how amazing she looks. I love her jeans!

Am I the only one who notices her great shaped bottom?? Really, isn't that what makes this photo worth looking at? If she had a flat as a pancake or poorly shaped bottom end, would we all think she was so wonderful? I do like the blue color and her nice hat, but stuffed with the wrong insides, sorry folks, those pants wouldn't work. Beautiful people tend to look naturally more fashionable.

I would have to go with style. Fashion is forever; there is no way around it - but style comes after fashion. You collect the pieces, buy, trade, find what have you - but its up to you to find your own style and what sets you apart (how you where them). Style is about where you're going, where you've been and what you experienced along the way.

I think to put it in the easiest terms no one said it better then

I think that fashion is what you wear, but style is what you do with it. Style is an expression of your personality, and fashion is the pieces that you use to show your style.

Also, it's the way you wear your clothes, the way you carry your body, that can make a world of difference between two girls wearing the same outfit.

I dont really think this is original..as soon as i saw this it reminded me of the whole Rachel Zoe and Nicole Richie phase in 2006,2007. This style was very 4 years ago.

but nonetheless, i am still amazed at your photo skills. and i do still like her ensemble. :)

I know someone has style when I want to know everything about them. This woman has it, she looks absolutely fascinating - gorgeous in both traditional and unconventional ways.

Distinguishing between style and fashion is something that not many people do. It's one thing to wear outfits you can find on a shop's mannequin - it's another to use clothes as a form of expression. You don't need money to have style. You just need to experiment with clothes until you find your right look.

Fashion is the wave you surf, and style is the hook or the rack you hang your surf-board on at the end of the day. They're both means to a joyous end. Isn't this young lady something beautiful to behold?

Before I knew squat about anything in the fashion world or how a well dressed man might coordinate, I went to NYC for the first time in October of 2000. At the Guggenheim Museum I passed by a man with piercing blue eyes, a double barreled shot-gun of a nose, sandy-blonde hair in a floppy cut, tortoise-shell glasses, a gorgeous thickly woven shirt and contrasting tie. He was the bees-knees. His suit was immaculate, and the cut of his jib was bullet proof. He sailed past quietly, and I never forgot him.

It took me some ten years and gradual dandy-study to realize I'd passed by Hamish Bowles. Hamish, wherever you are, you are an inspiration in style AND fashion, and you made an already special trip to New York just that much more, a surprise gift from memory, so many years later.

Like Mr. Schuman, please stay inspired and inspiring.

Blogger margaretmarks said ... (12:09 AM) : 

With fashion, the clothing may be beautiful and look great on you but it is always wearing you because it is a kind of dictate. There are only so many ways to make it yours and guaranteed someone else has sone something similar. With style, you own it. You stand out of the way of trend and have found that fashion 'feeling' that suits you, regardless if you're wearing something from the current season or something from 1974.

I think fashion (trends) are supposed to facilitate the expression of one's true individual style -- instead, many people take fashion as a dictation of what they should be wearing. This girl is beautiful!

Blogger Liz S said ... (2:06 AM) : 

That's great 70s style there. It was in fashion in the 70s and she wears it stylishly. It is now in fashion also but on someone else it might look silly.

It's about using fashion from any era in a creative way that suits your personality, body shape, height, facial structure. It can also involve many other subtle aspects such as the mood you're in, the time in your life/career, partner's likes and dislikes, time you have to spend looking for clothes.

It's also about knowing instinctively what goes with what--
I think this is in the genes, but it can be learnt, but takes much passion and time to "get it". Some get it faster than others--some really don't care and that's ok too.

Those are some seriously groovy jeans!

There are few things sartorially sadder than a fashionable person who looks utterly lost in, or owned by, his/her ensemble. Fashion is, at its best, just a tool that can be used or adapted to express one's style. And when it's in conflict with one's style, avoiding it like the plague can create a statement of its own.

I like her look very much! The jeans reminds me of hippie pants in 70-80th, but the overall impression - classy: blue jeans with white blouse. And I like the simplicity of color pallet: black, red, white and light blue. I think the style like this one can carry through years.

The own style is always more important than fashion and the hardest thing is to combine style and fashion in an appropriate manner.
