I recently watched this talk by British Vogue on personal style, featuring interviewees Alexa Chung, Amanda Harlech and Lucinda Chambers. Hearing their responses to questions such as “what is chic?” and “what is personal style?” is insightful. For one, the word “chic” gets used so often to describe style and fashion, and after listening to this talk I had the realization that what many define as “chic” is usually something entirely different – when it’s more like a sub-group of people who dress, well, understated, or what is most commonly seen as French. It’s a good talk and well worth the background-noise-listen as you browse your Tumblr feed or wash the dishes.
