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

I think taste is permanent, style transient. I think you have good taste if you like things now that you like in ten years time. I am hugely into food, so I guess I often look at the distinction between taste and style more often in the context of food than fashion. I will always love a good macaroni cheese and a good burger because they taste good. I won't necessarily always like oyster foam or raw superfood salads, as they're just fads that will be here one year and gone the next. We don't like those things because they taste good.

Minimalism and neutral colors, I like having all items in my closet be able to match each other instead of single look items.

Yes- I think I do. Don't we all think we do?
Taste is more important because it extends beyond style.

It may make me look too fond of myself but I think to have both and that they're equally important.

I have style and I know I'm tasteful when it comes to recommendations for others dressing. Style is dressing beautifully and being complimented for it. Taste is knowing what to wear when.

I think I have good taste, most of the time. Sometimes, I have style, but it's hard for me to see the gestalt of my clothing choices. I don't really think of them as "fashion" choices and I mostly look at fashion magazines for the photographic choices.

I try to. Taste is more important. Taste implies being smart in all aspects of life.

Taste, yes, style, a bit.
taste is way more important.

Semantics.

I have neither

I certainly hope that I have good taste and style. Good taste to me is recognizing the quality and uniqueness of something, while good style is the ability to combine and put pieces together to create a look that you're proud of.
At the moment, with a college-grad bank account, I'm spending a lot of money at H&M and T.J. Maxx, but I do try to limit it and look at care instructions and quality of the product before purchasing.

Both.

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.
