7 Thoughts on Style & Taste

About a month ago I read a New York Times article- Straight Talk: A New Breed of Fashion Bloggers and I discovered Marcus Troy– a Black Canadian journalist and style blogger. I was immediately intrigued. As I was browsing through his archives I came across an interview where he discussed how to distinguish the difference between confidence and arrogance. I liked his response so I started following his site. A few days ago he posted his thoughts on style and taste based on his random Twitter rant. I missed his tweets but I read his thoughts and found 7 universal style and taste tips worth sharing.

  1. Style is not about the name brands you wear. Style is about how you put things together.
  2. Style is also about vision and a unique point of view in my opinion. Taking risk, being bold and confident in what you wear.
  3. The importance of style blogs are for style queues, ideas & reference points. But true style comes from within. No blog can give you that.
  4. I’ve encountered so many ladies who have the biggest misconception about style. It’s not only about the purse & the shoes in my opinion.
  5. Style is also about knowing Time & Place and knowing your age in style. Just my opinion.
  6. As you age, your clothes will change but your sense of having style should stay the same.
  7.  Taste is also universal but so deep. You have to have a vast understanding & knowledge about things to have taste. You get what I am saying?
