Trendy – If you live for the latest and greatest of fashions, you are a trendy kinda girl. Most trendy women are open to new ideas, and in fact embrace them with eagerness. If you’re trendy you probably don’t like when fashion moves slowly, and you’re always looking for something new and creative to add to your wardrobe. You probably love designer or name brand clothes, and it’s more likely that your closet is crammed full. Most people will confuse your style and think of you as a fashion victim. The reality is that most trendy girls are not slaves to trends at all, in fact if you’re trendy you’re more likely to know which trends to follow and which to avoid, more than any other girl. You’re probably very aware of everything that goes on in the fashion industry, and you most likely start wearing the newest styles before they even become trends!

Girly – If you’re the kinda girl whose always dressed up, wearing heels and who would never been seen without makeup and a great hairstyle, you’re a girl’s girl. You probably prefer to wear soft, pretty colours like pink, purple and yellow. You’re likely to enjoy juvenile inspired clothing, with details likes bows, polka dots and pleats. Your closet consists of mostly dresses and skirts, and has little-to-no black or neutral hues in it, and flats are almost an insult to you! You enjoy being noticed for your pretty outfits, and you wouldn’t be caught dead in anything casual like sneakers and tee’s, unless you’re working out. People may sometimes think of you as a bubbly ditz, but your sunny clothes only match your sunny personality.

Garcelle Beauvais

Sophisticated – You crave timeless appeal and clean, simlpe silhouettes when it comes to clothing. Your hues of choice are mostly in a nuetral palette, but you recognize the importance of a shot of colour now and then. Black is probably the most dominant hue in your entire wardrobe. A good fit is important to you, and you probably know your tailor like you know your best friend. You never feel the need to be flashy. Or trashy for that matter; you wouldn’t dare to wear anything too revealing. You probably own more than one suit, and adore pencil skirts over any other skirt. Your style is reminiscient of the 40’s and 50’s when sleek elegance was all the rage. You always look put together, and most likely have more outfit options than anyone you know, since all your clothing is simple and compliments each other.

Ladylike – Basically a lady is a cross between sophiticated and girly. A little more feminine than a sophisticated style, but less juvenile than the girly style. You probably love to wear dark gem hues and like a girly girl, you’re not likely to be seen in pants, unless they are dressy pants. You adore dresses and skirts, but you always wear them with class. You would never wear anything vulgar or tarty. You enjoy dressing elegantly and you’re more likely to appreciate luxury goods over designer duds. Most of what you wear will never go out of style and you’re likely to also be vintage, since a lot of your style was more prominent in past decades. Black is a strong hue in your wardrobe, since it pulls everything together.

Glam – If your wardobe consists mostly of glitter and other “look at me” pieces, you’re probably a glam girl. You love being noticed, and won’t wear anything less than bold. You’re not scared to wear a plunging neckline, and you most likely have tons of sparkly jewelry. You’re daring so you’re not afraid to try new things, but you’re probably not happy when minimalism is trendy. Shiny, glossy fabrics are probably a favourite of yours, such as velvet or silk. You’re likely a party girl, and the life of it and everything you buy reflects that.

Vintage – If you have a love for all era’s and enjoy looking unique, you have a love for vintage clothing. You’re not a picky person when it comes to style, and you will try anything that’s from a past era. You’re most likely the type of person who just enjoys clothing, since your vinatge style has a very wide range. You’re most likely a very artsy, uninhabited type of person who really isn’t sure what their main style is. You can go from a 20’s era get-up one day, to a funky 70’s style the next, and there’s nothing more fun to you than mixing vintage pieces with new trends.

Bohemian Luxe – There has been much misinterpretation of what Bohemian actually means when it comes to fashion. Basically, if you’re the kinda girl who deems yourself as artistic and deep, you’re a bohemian girl. Other terms for this style is “Gypsy” or “Hippie” which should help you get a better idea in your head. You enjoy wearing neutral palettes, mostly in earthly hues. Brown is probably very prominent in your wardrobe, and you go nuts over embroidery and prints. You’re much like a vintage except you’re vintage look isn’t as broad. Furs, shearling and suede are popular fabrics for you (faux or not). Your look is not cheap bohemian as seen in the past, but rather luxe, with rich fabrics and details. You enjoy being comfortable, wearing loose fitted clothing. Flat boots are a favourite among the bohemian crew. Bohemian luxe is the new, current style to wear of this persona, meaning your style choices should have an old world royalty influence to them.

Ashlee Simpson

Rocker Chic – Not to be confused with the teenage image of rockers, punks, or goths, the Rocker Chic look is a grown up taste of what the 90’s saw in teenagers. Black is very prominent in this wardrobe, but it’s accompanied with bold, bright colours. Skinny pants and off the shoulder tops are current favourites for this look, as well as most boots (knee, calf, ankle & booties all work), and mini’s. Plaids and checks are widely used in every colour, and studs and large sunglasses are go to accessories. You were most likely a rocker/punk/goth in high school, and have now evolved your style to more appropriately fit your age. You most likely enjoy being expressive and bold, and don’t mind when people look at you.

The Natural – If your main goal when it comes to style is to just be comfortable, you fall into this category. You would never sacrifice your style, but you know your limits and would never wear something uncomfortable just to look good. Popular pieces in your wardrobe are likely to be jeans and other basics like tee’s and sweaters. If you’re on the more preppy side of casual, you like classics like blouses, cardigans and A-Line skirts. Your main style is easy and simple, and you don’t feel the need to be flashy. You probably don’t like to follow or partake in many trends, but your casual nature doesn’t stop you from being put-together. Your colour palette probably ranges in subtle hues, as opposed to brights, but you’re more than likely to be open to most colours.

Urban – If you’re considered a city type of girl, you’re urban. Fashionably speaking, urban styles are edgy and reflects a city lifestyle. You don’t like to go with the trends, and prefer to wear your own unique outfits. Your look probably consists of a lot of black and silver, mixed textures, strange layering etc … it’s almost a futuristic feel now. Architecture is a big part of this look, and jeans (mostly dark denims) are very popular. Piling on jewelry of different styles, degrees and materials are a long favourite of the urban girl. You’re probably the type of person who struggles to find good clothing because this look is completely unique. Many confuse the urban look with being in-line with the Hip Hop community, and that the look is solely that. Urban in the fashion world does not actually spring from Hip Hop, although many of their artists have adopted the look. Basically, since urban location is otherwise defined as ‘city’, urban in fashion can only mean a city inspired, street style.

Girl Next Door – The girl next door is almost like the Vintage girl in theory; she doesn’t have one specific look. Instead she’s got a young, fresh sense of fashion, where anything goes (well almost anything). Whether dressed up or in everyday casual, the girl next door can pull it off, as long as the look is not dark and drab. You’re the sort of girl whose closet is full of everything! Mixing trendy or younger apparel with the sophisticated classics makes you look fresh but not juvenile. You probably wear a lot of white and black and then a nice mix of colours. Most neutrals don’t allow you to shine, so you feel less comfortable wearing them.

Scarlett Johansson

Bombshell – Sultry and sexy, but classy is the definition of the Bombshell. You love glamorous, sexy clothing, and almost always reveal a little skin. You’re not tastelessly overt, instead the Bombshell is a womanly sort of sexy. You prefer close fitted clothing that hugs the body, black is a necessity in your wardrobe, and you’re not afraid to wear a mini – ever. You almost always manage to look dressy and sultry, even when you’re in jeans. It’s unlikely that you would ever have a shoe that wasn’t a high heel, unless you have sneakers for keeping your body hot at the gym. You’ve probably turned quite a few heads, and your friends probably envy your level of confidence.

***Always remember that your unique style is personal, and not all celebrity icons will influence or define your style. Make sure you always wear what you feel the most comfortable in, and never let a celebrity’s style influence yours if it doesn’t work for you. Celebrities are meant to be thin and beautiful, and not adding up to their standards is quite normal and expected. Hopefully, most of you already know which style best represents yours, however if you adore the style of a certain celebrity that does not represent your personal fashion sense, go ahead and try out another style. It is never too late to experiment and express the true you. Who knows, you may develop a new style or perhaps enjoy mixing your old taste with you new taste. If you have any questions or comments concerning this post and its content, feel free to drop a line. If you know of any celebrities who would also fit into a certain personal style, let me know and I will search out pictures and examples to use on my blog in the future. Thank you.
