Style does not mean following fashion tends, but can be a way to express one's personality through a fashion sense. The way someone can put an outfit together can form a statement to represent who they are.
It is true to say that some people are perhaps more stylish than others, but the question remains as whether one is born with style, or whether it is something that can be acquired?
Such a wonderful question Erica :) I think a small proportion of a person's style is embedded in their upbringing/personality. As someone evolves and gains an interest in certain things (including style and clothes) these tastes do evolve. Your style of clothing does change depending on the roles you're called to perform in the workplace and/or in your business.
I agree with you, I believe that one is perhaps born have a certain flair for style, which can be 'found' over the years when reaching an age of expression. Putting a tasteful outfit together does not always work out, even for those that have been 'taught' fashion sense!
