23. Do you think you have taste or style? Which one is more important? What do these words mean to you

Taste - general idea of what I like.

Style - using that general idea to inform how I dress and the things I do.

Im at the lower end of the taste scale right now.

I think style is very individual and taste is subjective. I think having one’s own style is more important than anyone else thinking you have taste.

I have both.
Taste is discerning.
Style is expression.
I have built a second career around peoples interest in my taste.

I think taste is knowing what looks good; having a good sense of how different visual elements look together. It's having an "eye" for aesthetics. Style is how your taste translates into your looks. I have amazing taste, but right now my style is lacking because I haven't put effort into updating my wardrobe. I will, but I have other priorities right now.

Need both.

Style..will follow some trends if I like them..but I dont need anyones anyone's approval but my own

Taste is innate.
Style is something that you develop.
You can apply taste to style but not style to taste.

A little bit of both, but it's more applicable to my own personal taste and style as I don't particularly follow popular trends. I like what I like.

yes, taste. quality.

They are similar, you can't have one without the other, if you have taste, you'll have some kind of style. Taste is more important to me.


I do not know the difference between the two. Tastes are different and a depending on my taste I think someone is stylish or has bad taste.

semantics are boring

I'm not sure how to answer this, I hope I have both. But I think I am developing both taste and style. I'm not quite there yet.

Taste is more important and is the foundation to style

I think so. I like understated, fitted clothes that aren't attention grabbing and slide into the background. I'm trying to get better about wearing beautiful clothing that fits. I felt frumpy recently because I'd changed weight. New clothes that fit helped tremendously.

i have better taste than style. in everything. not to brag, but i think i like and know about things that are cool for smart people to like or know about. and my style is okay, but it's mediated by a lot more than taste is (i.e. money).

taste is what you know is good, style is what you wear.

I believe I have taste and style. This is often affirmed by other people. Everyone's taste is different though. I think style has more to do with a way of carrying yourself and being self assured. You have to know yourself. It's singular to a specific person and inimitable.

I think taste and style are nearly synonymous, but that taste applies more broadly to intangible things, such as the way we represent ourselves when we speak or write or interact.

My style is relaxed but pretty.

I feel I have both - taste feels more like 'this or that' whereas style speaks to a collection and aura that radiates from that bigger picture of self-expression.

I have a little sense of style, and more taste. I think?

I think I have taste because I pretty know a lot about fashion and style

I think I have great style and poor taste, and I'm very comfortable with that.

To me, "taste" speaks of someone who dresses in a way that's conventionally pleasing. I imagine they have a well-organized closet full of Brooks Brothers shirts and merino sweaters. A tasteful person's clothes always fit, and their clothes never offend.

Someone with style has a well-defined aesthetic that may exist well outside the boundaries of convention or what's acceptable. A stylish person dresses to express their inner self and make themself happy.

I think everyone has taste and style. I don't know if mine is good, but it exists.

Do I have taste? Do I have style? When I read your book I asked myself these questions. I think first one has to define 'taste' and 'style'. If you define 'style' as a sort of personal Hand writing that becomes visible in different aspects of my life, then I would say "Yes I think, I have style." When I hear the word 'taste' I automatically think of People (men and women) that wear exquisit garments and live in elegantly furnished homes like the ones you sometimes see in magazines. But I think I am not that Kind of Person.

they mean most the same to me. style is more important I think as it refers to more of the wholeness of one's earthly presence whereas taste is more so to the particular items and refers to more of a picking and consuming to me.
