Style I am choosing to write about paragraph two, page 95 of the Hebidge article. I agree that taste does distinguish those who make the distinctions. However, I feel that the whole concept of analyzing what makes a person stylish or not is foolish. I feel that attempting to put a definitive issue on what is stylish is defeating the purpose of having style. Style does not define you, attitude does. Style is a reflection of an individual and if people are judging you and your personality solely on material things than I feel that this is where America’s shallow mentality derives.
I am not saying that style is unnecessary because it is natural for an individual to want the best of everything, but that is not always possible. I have a motto that relates perfectly to this topic. A lot of people have a champagne mentality, but only have a beer pocketbook. This means that a person may desire in their heart to have the best of everything, but not the means of attaining it. Also, the idea of forming distinctions of who is and isn’t stylish is at a loss because no matter what a person does there is no way to achieve a unanimous consensus on style anyway.
What is beautiful and stylish in the eye of a conservative is hideous in the eye of the nonconformist. In conclusion the issue of style is one that belongs in casual conversation, but cannot be classified because the beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and each beholder has their own concept of beauty.
