Style Icon: Iris Apfel

There is great difference between being fashionable and stylish. Being in fashion - just means that you are wearing a design that is widely accepted among a large group at any given time. But, where is the originality in that? Having true style is the exact opposite - it is being a testament to nonconformity. More or less, wearing what captures your mood or personality regardless of the general acceptance of your choices - makes one stylish. Iris Apfel is one such person that is elevated to iconic status for her use of color, mixture of couture with flea market finds, and application of over the top accessories. She inspires us to be true to ourselves and what we adore.
