you can buy discount designer duds on E-bay or at designer consignment store so having more money doen't mean youll be able to buy better things...maybe if you have money you'll be able to buy it sooner. It's just like people have been saying it's not what you have it's how you work it.

It's all about finding out what works best on you and finding your own personal style! You don't have to spend thousands of dollars to get a nice wardrobe!

It comes from within.

it is about having the eye to combine items and self-confidence when wearing them, which can not be bought unless you rent a stylist. :)

style is either something you have or you don't, if you do have a passion for style (because some people don't and clothing and accessories really don't matter much to them) you can 'make it work' no matter the size of your bank account! ;)

Right there with you Nyara, if style could be bought Victoria Beckam would look good.

You dont need $$ to have style-but Ill give you that it's easier to achieve. but look at Britney and Dolly Parton-they have tons of money and no style. This quote sums it up to be: "Style" is individuality mixed with charisma. Fashion is something that comes after style. -John Fairchild

Yes, it can buy you a stylist who can help improve your style.

GOD NO!! Money doesn't buy class and it SURELY doesn't buy style.

Other: Yes and No. Yes because when you have money then you can afford the quality. No since I've seen women have tons of money and they still dress horribly. I believe style comes from within and knowing how to dress yourself; if you have the knowledge and taste it doesn't matter where you shop, you will dress nicely.

Yes for people that 'buy' stylists LOL.. But only a true fashionista is 'Instyle' ;p

I think its a little of both. But I really think its all about confidence and just feeling good in what you wear. :)

Hmph, I've been known to hook up some fabulous fits on a budget. But, I would love to have enough money to buy a couple of unique items that cost MOOLA!

Having money TOTALLY DOES NOT equal style. Look at DOnald Trump! He has a ton of money... And also the most TACKIEST taste. Having money does mean you can afford a stylist... But, when it comes to true style, you either have it or you don't.

I actually think you can do both. If you have money you can really buy high end style but if your creative than you can do it on a budget.

I think you can buy fashionable pieces, but style isn't something that can be bought. Sure, someone can style you, but you have to have the interest and the right eye to be able to style yourself.

I don't think money can buy style. Style is using what you have or bought to reflect who you are. It doesn't matter if its vintage, from a bargain store or high end, its how you rock it that matters!

I've seen plenty of people who try to BUY style by purchasing whatever the "it" item of the season is. Style is not something you can buy, by copying an outfit from a magazine or a website. People can have style from shopping at budget stores. Style is about how you create outfits from what you own and the confidence you have when wearing them. Style can NOT be bought. That would be called: "copying" and not "style".

I'm inclined to say that money helps but I think a true fashion-savy person could put together an outfit out of nothing. It's a catch 22: you don't have to spend money to look great BUT you can also look great if you spend a lot of money.

Money defintely helps, but you also have to know how to use it

Sure if I had tons of money I would wear more designer pieces, but I think I have plenty of style now!

Theres now way money can buy style...Its something that your born with. Its all about how u wear it, not what. Its should look effortless. I hate when outfits look too put together... Its sad that stars always depend on their stylist, they dont know whats hot...shame.
