Style Is Mine

On more than one occasion, I've seen people comment on other people having style, hoitily sniff into the camera "People are born with style. You either have it or you don't."
Well, I poo-poo your view and say we can all learn to have style and grace and poise. I entertain the idea that some are genetically predisposed to being beautiful, and being born into the right environment certainly encourages stylish behaviour (having money helps), but appreciating beauty is a trait totally available to anyone. And isn't appreciating a beautiful life the foundation to having style and grace? The rest of us just have to learn it like any other behaviour; like having manners, or to consider the feelings of another.
