Fashions may fade, but style, taste are eternal

Dress is an attempt to display individuality each day. Most people want to be exclusive and make fashion statements that will distinguish them from the next person. Although some of the most brilliant were first criticized by the world, they all understood that fashions fade and style is eternal. Trying too hard to be in fashion can sometimes cause a person to appear more tacky and cheap than fashionable and chic.

“Fashion style is important. Your clothes make your fashion statement, and how you’re perceived,” said Sher Matson, a freelance writer and author of numerous lifestyle books.

Combinations like snow boots and shorts, rain boots when it’s not raining; winter scarves with a tank top are a few runway looks meant to stay on the runway. Having a keen sense of style isn’t rocket science but more of a matter of knowing what looks good on your body.

Ladies, less is always more. Over accessorizing, picking the wrong prints, and wearing the wrong color combinations will always lead to disaster. You are no longer in the transition of becoming a woman. You are women. Wearing something simple and chic gives you quality, taste, and style.

“The key to developing a simple yet elegant style is buying clothing items that are basic and vital, taking advantage of the multiple combinations that these will allow,” said Maria Llorente, a writer for, a website that provides health, beauty and fitness tips to women.

Learning how to match separate pieces is a matter of experimenting with what looks good together with the clothes in your closet. Although it may seem strenuous, the final result will pay off.

Gentleman, know how to pair separates (shirts, pants, shorts, etc) together or knowing the proper fit of your clothes will upgrade your appearance.

Hip-hop moguls such as Sean “P-Diddy” Combs, Jay-Z, Kanye West, and Pharrell Williams prove that fashion for the urban man is no longer rugged and baggy, but a more polished-fitted-mature look that gives you an array of class and a touch of professionalism no matter what you have on.

“Hip-hop fashion has geared toward a more hipster-inspired style of dressing, which includes items such as slim-fit denim jeans, tighter-fitting “vintage style” t-shirts with shorter arm sleeves, polo shirts, and much other stylish apparel,” states an article about urban fashion on

When it comes to style a major contributor is attitude. Be confident in what you’re wearing. Your personal style is a reflection of you, but you don’t want to reflect an image that doesn’t represent you well.

Remember Rattlers, simple is always stylish, and in the words of Yves Saint Laurent, “fashions fade, style is eternal.”
