I once read a quote that went something like this, “Fashion is what’s presented in the stores; style is what you do with the fashion.” I couldn’t agree more with this! It’s not about expensive threads or fancy labels; it’s how you rock them. Now don’t get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with splurging on pricey items and quality materials but if you’re style isn’t correct, then you’re wasting money. It’s about being able to make both an expensive and inexpensive outfit look good. This, sweethearts, is called style.

For example, below are a few outfits I have worn that were all under $100. Check them out.
Style in a nutshell is your energy and personality. When you are wearing a trend, let your personality come through so that you own the trend. Trying to be or dress like someone else is a sure way to fail in the style department. Be as authentic as possible. Get tips from other fashion enthusiasts, pick out the looks that best suit you, and tailor those looks to fit your style.
