Are you the woman who finds shopping frustrating and intimidating OR the woman who's open to trying new style trends until she finds the look she likes, OR PERHAPS, the woman who knows what compliments her frame and personality and owns her signature style regardless of others acceptance!? It's important to understand, it's not the language of the clothes but the expression of you who are when you ROCK them... that my dear is what style is, & once it's mastered, you can SLAY for days! So let's discuss, How Do YOU Define your Slay?!
Below, Harper's Bazaar defines different Fashion Personalities, which are you?
THE CLASSICISTS - These women prefer basics - the T-shirt, blazer white shirt, suit, and trousers - and look effortlessly chic in simple staple pieces. Embrace tradition. Sticking with things that have stood the test of time is often the key.
THE BOMBSHELLS - Sexy is the manta for these women. And for them, picking pieces that show off a curvy, feminine figure is the norm. Look for the clothes that accentuate the hourglass. Deep V's and high slit are de rigueur...
THE BOHEMIANS - Bell - bottoms may have given way to breezy gowns, but these free-spirited style setters love earthy, ethnic - inspired looks. Stay chic. Dressing like a modern-day flower child isn't license to look sloppy. Master the mixxx.
THE LADIES - Grace Kelly's white - glove look may be a little old-fashioned, but her prim, polished, and pulled-together air still resonates with today's refined set. Keep in feminine but not flirty. Pick a silhouette that shows off your waist but maintains your grace.
THE MAVERICKS - New designers? Avant - garde cuts? Bold looks? Bring them on. This fashion-forward group is not afraid to experiment. Don't follow the pack. Look for pieces no one else has and start your own trends. (People will follow!)
THE MINIMALISTS - Sleek, simple shapes in a monochrome, toned-down palette are what keep this clan looking sharp and smart. Black is your best friend. The no- frills hue always works, whether in a skirt, top, pant, or dress.
THE ECLECTICS - It's all about having fun with fashion for these playful women. Bright colors, madcap pairings, loud patterns are part of the package. Never say never. Follow your heart when it comes to picking out your clothes. Forget what's appropriate!
Take this Fashion Style Quiz to help discover your style! Be honest and open...
Now just keep in mind, this is a just quiz not a life sentence to a particular style. Personally, I often find, sometimes my "fashion personality" changes (AND THAT'S OK!). Sometimes I feel like rocking an avant garde chic look and other times I may feel like a coachella hipster or black and white "Minimalist". No matter the category you've been grouped into, you always have the FASHIONABLE RIGHT to try new looks or stylish adventures. If you're more of a "Classicist" and feel the need to add a little spice to your look, a bold, colorful accessory - necklace, or shoes - can always help you step out the box but still stay true to your style.
