What is a fashion style?

What are the four types of fashion?

Fashion is the relationship to the outside.

It’s about “what’s out there” (fashion items, in stores). It’s a matching process between what’s out there (fashion’s main concern) and what I’m wearing. Does what I’m wearing fit with what’s “out there”, with what’s considered “in fashion”?

It’s about “what’s in here” (my sense of self, my identity, my perception of who I am). The matching process is what is in here and how that is reflected and expressed in what I wear. Do my clothes fit my self-image, at least for today?


French fashion style, also known as Parisian style, is all about timeless and minimalist clothing that gently implies effortless elegance, grace and simplicity. All with comfort in mind. No wonder it is one of the most inspirational fashion style types in modern fashion.

NYC style

Maybe it’s just because I live in NYC, but NYC style deserves its own category. This is a decidedly metropolitan style that integrates trends but at the same time requires functionality. NYC style tends towards darker tones (New York City is dirty ;)) and being such a walkable city requires shoes that can walk to the train or walk a few miles a day.

If you want to achieve this style, I would definitely follow my blog as I often talk about fashion trends that are popular in New York. I have a post about some NYC outfits that I’ve been seeing all over the place lately.

Parisian style

Parisian fashion style is all about being très chic while embracing minimalism. Think of it as an effortlessly cool, classic, carefree aesthetic that exudes subtle hints of sophistication. Parisian style is the ultimate blend of dressy and casual, with monochromatic basics that perfectly complement your rotation.

Instead of a full makeup face with foundation and heavy lipstick, French girls opt for tinted moisturizers or concealer, along with the “clean girl” hairstyle. This masculine-feminine outfit features neutral tones, blazers, white button-up shirts, jeans, white sneakers and delicate jewelry.

What is style?

Style is something that is unique to everyone. Style is the person’s own choice in clothing, accessories, and other things. Style is not entirely dependent on clothing; it can refer to anything that makes the person look stylish. In another perspective, style is the extension of fashion that does not change as fashion does.
