What is the difference between fashion and style?
Fashion is more collective and Style more individual.
Individual versus Collective:
Personal style belongs to a person’s own form of self – expression. Such an individual can be a designer like the well-known Coco Chanel or any person outside the fashion industry. The way in which they dress and express themselves are their personal style. Fashion has to do with the global trends and the fashion industry and business side.
Timeless versus Trendy:
Fashion is timely, but style is timeless. A person that is fashionable follow
the fashion closely and wears the latest trends. An Individual that is stylish will follow some trends but will always stay true to their personal style instead of absorbing the latest trends.
