What is the difference between style and fashion?

We all know what fashion is: These are the clothes and accessories that the media (fashion stores, television series, films, etc.) advise us to wear to have a look, an allure, impeccable or to the taste of the day. This is what celebrities usually wear, and therefore what we want. It's also these super fitted pants in Nîmes canvas that look incredible as long as you wear them below a size 38 or this splendid handbag that costs the equivalent of three months' rent.

It's hard to appreciate this kind of fashion tyranny. This kind of tyranny that makes some teenage girls feel like they're never well dressed enough or that pushes them aside. Believe it, it is better to be stylish than to be “in fashion”. Having the latest “it bag” is one thing; having absolutely remarkable personal style is another.

For many women, being fashionable or having style means having a wardrobe full of clothes. In reality, having style is feeling perfectly comfortable with your appearance. You should always be the one who shines and not “the latest fashion suit” you’ve been wearing lately. There is a real difference between expressing your uniqueness through individual style and being trendy or fashionable. Today, Mademoiselle Grenade gives you a little difference game so that you can really understand what style is and what fashion is.

Style Vs Fashion

Style is timeless while fashion expires as soon as the trend has passed. Style is personal unlike fashion which is worn by everyone, or almost. A personal style evolves, you just have to add pieces to your collection. Fashion needs to constantly renew itself: There is always a new trend to invest in.

When you are authentic and honest, your personal style helps you feel real. You are yourself and your style expresses your true nature. On the other hand, when you buy and wear a fashionable piece, it is not impossible that you feel like you are wearing a costume or that you feel like someone else.

By expressing your personality through your clothes, you can't be short on style. With fashion…one day you're trendy and the next day you're not.

Style is knowing who you are, what you want to express and not caring about what people say.

In the fashion world, there are many people who would like to sell us the latest trends but don't wear them. On the contrary, they cling to their personal style. Anna Wintour, editor-in-chief of US Vogue , is the perfect example: You'll never see her wearing pants or with a haircut other than the one she's had for years. Her haircut is what characterizes her in a certain way. This is the summary of his personal style.

“Fashion is what you buy, style is what you own!” »Carine Roitfield

The same goes for Carine Roitfield, the brilliant ex-editor-in-chief of Vogue Paris known for her high heels and smoky-eye makeup. Here's another editor you'll never see in pants. Is it a coincidence? Should we see a sign there? It is not a question of adopting the dress and banning pants at all costs. This is not the message we want to convey.

Instead, remember that these women have been selling us, for years, the latest trends as fashions to adopt as quickly as possible while they both mark the world of fashion with their own stylistic imprint. They both march to the rhythm of their own styles.

Wouldn't it be time to decide what our personal style is? We should all know which cuts and shapes highlight us. More importantly, what are those shapes and cuts that don't flatter us.
