Are you born with style or can it be learned?

I don't think I have a stylish or hip fashion sense. Don't really care too much with keeping up with the latest styles myself. Can I learn to be more stylish or was I born with the no fashion sense gene?

style is something you have to adopt and learn...it's just an expression when they say "your born with syle" coz were all not..what they mean about that expression is that you have adored and adopt style since you were young. yes you can learn style and fashion, first thing you gotta learn is guts and confidence..because no matter how stylish the clothes are but you don't have the guts and confidence wearing it..it's no use..you have to feel good about yourself and your looks..you have to trust yourself...you are beautiful and stylish already, you just need to boost your confidence about that fact...whatever clothes you wear is stylish..fashion is really about confidence..good luck and i'm hoping you the best.. :)

Yes confidence does play a big part in your attitude.

of course, style is something we learn. we dont just get out of our mothers womb in complete ensemble right? as we mature, we encounter a lot of people who know how to do it, we learn different styles from other countries depending on their culture. it is really up to us to apply in our selves these fashion statements. but basically, we all learn style. some may have that innate sense of what is fashionable or what is "it" for the moment but style is really learned. of course you can learn to be stylish. start with reading a few magazines. they give out some tips on how to dress up or how to wear make up. good day.

True we aren't born with it but I think some people are just more natural/better at putting themselves together than others so in a way I think maybe there is something to being born with certain abilities and fashion may be one of them.

I adapted my own style in my teen years and developed upon it into my adult years.
