Fashion Personality

What's Your Fashion Personality Type?


A woman's fashion personality says who she is, and it's expressed by her style. Most of us lean toward one particular type of fashion personality, although we may sometimes wear styles that are more closely related to another. What's your fashion personality? Do you view yourself as having a classic, romantic, trendy, or casual style?

1. Classic Fashion Personality

Think Audrey Hepburn wearing her little black dress in Breakfast at Tiffany's--now that's classic fashion. Women who have a classic fashion personality love timeless fashion designs--tailored trousers; single-breasted, semi-fitted jackets; sleek pumps. Because classic style stands the test of time well, the classic fashion personality type is often able to wear her clothing and fashion accessories for years.

2. Romantic Fashion Personality

Shades of Scarlett O'Hara--women who have a romantic fashion personality type can imagine themselves in a Victorian setting wearing long, ground-sweeping hoop skirts. Ruffles, frills, lace, and other feminine details are all on their radar screens. Because the romantic fashion personality takes her style influence from the past, she sometimes looks a bit out of place in the modern world, but on the plus side, hers is the most feminine way of dressing.

3. Trendy Fashion Personality

Bring it on--the latest, newest, cutting-edge fashion designs in both clothing and accessories. These all catch the attention of the woman with a trendy fashion personality. Her friends are likely to consult her when it comes to fashion because they know she's always on top of the trends, and she's shopping for the newest styles before they even arrive in the stores.

4. Casual Fashion Personality

Comfy is the mantra of the woman with a casual fashion personality. She wants to live her life free of the restrictions of fashion, so she avoids high heels and shapewear like the plague and may not even own a dress. She may be a bit confused by style, but, on the other hand, she'll never be at the mercy of fashion. Tottering around on six-inch stilettos is definitely not her idea of fun; flip-flops and sneakers are much more to her liking.
