Most of my clothes comes from the high street, and for some that means I surely can’t be truly stylish. Lots of industry experts believe style comes from designer labels, vintage finds and good breeding. But I think the recent surge of ‘everyday people’ blogging about ‘everyday fashion’ has created a new kind of style – style that doesn’t name drop or look down its nose.
I think style is something you’re born with, and it manifests itself in all kinds of ways. A perfectly tousled hair cut, flawless eyeliner or a set of colour pop nails say ‘hello, I’ve got style!’ much more than a Mulberry handbag and a copy of Vogue.
I so don’t believe in that age old cliche celebs rattle out time and time again – “I mix high street with designer”. It’s right up there with “I eat healthily” and “I did not sleep with that woman”. If you’re truly stylish, you can rock a completely high street look and everyone will be asking who designed it.
