5 Remarkable Things I've noticed about truly Fashionable/Stylish People


I like to think I have good observation skills and in a world where everyone now seems to be obsessed with fashion, how do we differentiate the really stylish people from the "fake-it-till-you-make-it" crowd? This list is not meant to discriminate. It's meant to reveal more about people who have an indepth love for fashion, or are just really good at it. Let's get to it!

1. They tend to prefer the term "Stylish" to "Fashionable."

So henceforth, we will refer to them as "Stylish". I think it's because "fashionable" tilts a little more towards being a fashionist i.e, following every rule of fashion. Truly stylish people believe in individual style.

2. They don't fit into a particular style.


"Preppy", "Bohemian" and "Afro punk" are all styles of fashion. I've found that truly stylish people love to experiment, so they don't box themselves in. I've also noticed it's a bit difficult for them to describe their style due to this versatility. They tend to give vague descriptions like "Funky". There are different kinds of funky. Narrow it down a bit, will you?

3. They understand that it's quality over quantity.
Truly stylish people would rather invest in a few quality items than have a lot of cheap trendy clothes. In the world of fashion, a good instinct on when to save or splurge is very important for a balanced wardrobe. So they love sales a lot. Half the price for the full quality?!? #HellYes!

4. "I love your sense of style" is a much greater compliment than "You're so pretty!"

I'm just like "thanks" *Side eye*. But when someone compliments my outfit or style? My "famous" vibrant smile comes out in full beam. A rare moment, because it hardly does. Am I implying that I belong to this list? Maybe... ;)

5. They don't use the "stylish factor" as a status quo.
Looking at a person beneath their noses (even if they're shorter) just because the person isn't as well-dressed or as fashionable as they would expect, isn't something they do.(Or should I say we?)

Just because you're dressed head-to-toe in high fashion, and the person beside you is not, isn't a reason to judge him/her beneath you.

Did it even occur to you that the person might not be interested in high fashion? Just because you take fashion seriously doesn't mean the whole world should too.
That being said, Do you pass the "Truly Stylish" test?
