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


My taste is in comfort and practicality. It's hard to find anything to call my style because every shop seems to have the same five items with different prints.

I think style encompasses taste.

I don't think i have any of those. I don't really know what they mean anyway...

Someone told me I had ‘swag’ once. I think that probably means confidence in pulling off something that could potentially be terrible. I think that probably means I have style more that taste. ‘Tasteful’, although giving something a certain qualification, also has many negative connotations for me, as being a bit bland or within the rules. Style is more individual and interpretable. I like swag best though.

I think style is something that everybody has, but taste is not. Taste is refined, mostly invoving quality clothing and classic pieces. But taste is also knowing to pair your 200€ silk shirts with converse or vintage boots.

I think i have both, because i have an eye for fit, quality and details.

I think I have both taste and style. Neither is really more important to me, but I guess taste probably comes first as you need good taste to have good style. Taste is choosing good items of clothing, style is choosing what looks good with what.

I mostly think I have taste. Style is much more important because you get to see yourself and describe yourself without communicating

Both, meaning is individual, I wear what I like

I think I have both, but that style is more important. When I think of "style" versus "taste", I think of a creative expression that is impossible to replicate.

Both. Taste means you know what looks good. Style is your personal flair.

people often say, i do have good taste.
i would say taste is something inside of you. it differs from person to person and other people can't influence it easily.
style is the realisation of taste - it can be developed but also influenced or manipulated by others.

I think I've got reasonably good taste.
And every now and again reasonable style, but style is so fleeting, and unless it is a classic style doesn't really fit with my sustainable ethos (which invariably means I don't buy clothes every 5 mins so don't keep up with 'the stylish folk' per se).
Taste, implies values and transcends seasons!

Taste is what you choose, style is how you put your choices together for impact.

I am not sure, I just wear what I think compliments my body

Taste = is what I like
Style = is the way I put my taste together.

I have both.

Yes I do. Everyone has their own taste and style. I'm much more sure of mine as I get older, and I don't think one is more important than the other particularly. Taste to me is about what you are drawn to, and what you instinctively go for e.g. certain colours, types of books/art, and style is more about what kind of looks you go for whether it is more wild or minimal or tomboy etc. Both of them are your own, but influenced from many different places.

I'm not sure where this falls in terms of "taste" or "style" but I think I have a strong sense of spotting a piece of clothing that feels very "me". I really get a kick out of materializing myself in clothing and items.

I have taste. I have an eye for nice things, so I can appreciate them.

Both words seem a bit superficial.

taste is input.
style is output.

taste is how you observe and select.
style is how you combine and create.

I've tried to answer this a couple times, but I don't really think I can.

Taste is unique to oneself and may or may not be flattering. One's culture usually dictates style.
I have taste and once in a blue moon achieve style.

I think taste feels like more of an old fashioned word than style.

I think my style is non style. I choose pieces I Like and mix them in sometimes controversial ways. I do not subscribe to the colour of the year, or seasonal fashions dictated by some corporation. Im no fashionista.
