Bill Cunningham, the original street style photographer, has it right. Taste does not equal style. I’d also like to add that being able to afford expensive clothes doesn’t mean you have style either—mixing high-low or even just low-low and looking chic is a much more of a challenge. When I was in college, sure, I had an occasional nice thing or two (mostly bags, thanks, Mom!) but really, I was scrappy and dressed myself in a great deal of Forever 21, BCBG, and J.Crew. And a lot of vintage. That carried through my early twenties. I loved designer clothes but never had a “designer or nothing” attitude. Today, I still feel that way. I love-love-love finding great vintage pieces and shopping at Zara alike. Outlets are my happy place—to the extreme disappointment of my husband, as we usually only go on vacation. And, yes, I wear a lot of designer clothes but never just to, you know, wear them. I buy them to have and to hold, ‘til death (or moths) do us part. (Yes, I did just consecrate marriage vows in that last sentence in regards to fashion. What?)
