Style Identity: What style means to us

You probably hear the term ‘style’ all the time. Whether it’s about fashion, a ‘house style’ that keeps a brand consistent or a way that someone does something in their own way. One thing these all have in common is that they are all about being different. About being an individual.

If this is where the term came from it seems strange that for some being stylish is wearing something that everyone else is wearing at the time. Something that is ‘in’. But in reality, style is about an expression. Something that should make you stand out from the crowd.

Next time you’re putting together an outfit, why not ask yourself this: “if I took a picture of myself and blurred out my face, would people still know who I was?” This is what we at Haych are trying to create. A versatile style that anyone can wear but that anyone can personalise, alter and accessorize to make it fit that individual’s ‘personal style’.

To us at Haych, identity is everything and its why style is so important to us. It’s not about just about looking good it’s about self-expression.

Here are our favourite celebrity style icons who express themselves through their clothes.

Donatella Versace 

“My style is not that big. I wear heels, tight pants, and I wear diamonds.” — Vogue Festival, April 2013

Fran Lebowitz

"What people don’t know is: Clothes don’t really fit you unless they’re made for you. Especially when you wear men’s clothes, like I do. American women think that clothes fit them if they can fit into them. But that’s not at all what fit means.” — Elle, March 2015

Miuccia Prada

"Fashion never opened itself to the ‘ugly.’ I started it, and I have been criticized a lot for this. But that has been the success of Prada … My true point of view in fashion is to go against the clichés of beauty and sexy.” — W Magazine, December 2015

Jayden Smith

"I wore the Batman suit to heighten my experience at the wedding and prom which was fun, but also at the wedding I felt as though I needed to protect everyone there and needed to have the proper gear to do so. ... My style icons are Batman, Robin, Nightwing, Superman, and Kanye West." — GQ, June 2015

Orson Welles

“Create your own visual style… Let it be unique for yourself and yet identifiable for others.” 

So next time you're shopping, think of the image you want to put across and what you want to tell the world about yourself. If you want to stand out and make waves, do it!
