Style vs Trends – Learn How To Create A Timeless Shoe Collection

While many use the words style and trend interchangeably, there is actually a difference between the two! Read on to learn what it truly means to be stylish and trendy, then check out our timeless footwear to keep in your shoe arsenal. 


What Does Being Stylish Mean?


A wise man once said, “Style is knowing who are you, what you want to say, and not giving a damn.” That man was Orson Welles and we couldn't agree more! Style is independent of the latest trends. While stylish people may incorporate trends into their wardrobe here and there, men with style do not always adhere to trends. 


What Does Being Trendy Mean?


A man who is trendy pays attention to the most current fashions, typically seen on up to date influencers, featured in magazines, or online retailer’s newest arrivals section. While there is such a thing of being stylish and wearing the latest trends, most trend-hunters have unwavering loyalty to on-trend wear and let designers dress them.


Now that you know the difference between having style and being trendy, we’ve curated our top picks that you can never go wrong with. Keep scrolling to create a long-lasting shoe collection.
