Here are a few of the descriptive words in today's thesaurus: distinctive appearance; a particular design of clothing; elegance and sophistication; impressive and good taste (not as in food).
In today's Melbourne Herald Sun I found a challenging photograph depicting "street style" worn on Melbourne streets last week. I say "challenging" because none of the above descriptive words can be used with the outfits photographed. I am NOT challenging the wearers of the outfits, but rather the outfits themselves.

Has something happened to the English language without my noticing it? Has someone been changing our every-day words to such an extent that they no longer mean what they say, or say what they mean?
Or have I lost sight of what is "style"?
