As most of us do I suspect, I love to people watch, and I get great pleasure from seeing someone with style, someone who looks really good, really together. They may not be beautiful, or even fashionable and their clothes are often simple enough, even understated but stylish people wear them as if they are utterly at ease in them. I think it was Diana Vreeland who said something along the lines of 'You must make a great effort, then forget all about what you are wearing'. I love that someone makes an effort, then wears the clothes unselfconsciously, and without vanity. That is very attractive. That is style.
A really good fit, quality fabrics, good proportions, flattering colours - these things are worth making an effort with I think, rather than fretting about what is 'in' this season - though that can be fun to watch....
And it is about fun, and is not to be taken too seriously in the end!
