Take this Personal Style Quiz to find out yours. We update the quiz regularly and it’s the most accurate among the other quizzes.
One of the main reasons many of my clients feel lost when it comes to getting dressed is that they don’t know what their own personal style is.
They end up doing the following:
• Wearing their old clothes until they literally fall apart at the seams!
• Purchasing the same items repeatedly (having the same “style” since college—or high school!)
• Relying on yoga pants rather than cultivating any kind of style
• Buying whatever their friends (or pushy salespeople) tell them to buy, resulting in a mishmash of other people’s tastes in their closets.
When they’ve had enough of the above options, they hire me. Style Discovery is the first thing I do with new clients to help them find their personal style. The problem is that it can be difficult to transition from having no idea to being able to describe your unique blend of styles. That’s why I created Style Types. This is the first in a series that will be released over the next few weeks. (If you can’t wait, I’ve made Pinterest boards for each style type to help you find inspiration and start your own personal style board.)
Colors, fabrics, and shapes in a Romantic style are delicate and feminine. Colors are typically understated and timeless (think red, pink, white, tan, navy, etc). Silks, cashmere, seersucker, linen, lace, denim, and cotton are among the fabrics used. The accessories are delicate and classic. Clothes are well-cut and demure, not too tight or too loose. Lauren Conrad, Taylor Swift (early 2010s), Jenny Cipoletti (of Margo and Me blog), and Eva Mendez are some fashion icons. Also, you must try to play this Personal Style Quiz.

Sleek and chic
Classic lines and silhouettes define the Sleek Chic look. Colors are typically classic and mostly neutral (think white, ivory, black, navy, etc). Silks, cashmere, wool, leather, and cotton are among the fabrics available. Accessories are kept to a minimum; however, when they are used, they tend to be simple but impactful (a large silver cuff, a menswear-inspired watch, etc). Clothes aren’t too tight or too loose, but they do flatter the figure. Victoria Beckham, Angelina Jolie, Meghan Markle, Queen Letizia of Spain, and Miranda Kerr are some fashion icons.
Looser fits and comfortable fabrics define the Casual style. The outfits are simple, with an emphasis on comfort, and have a laid-back vibe. Classic and neutral colors are popular, but they are not the only ones. Denim, linen, lycra, wool, soft leather, and cotton are among the fabrics available. The accessories are minimal and straightforward. Clothes should be comfortable but not too baggy. Jennifer Aniston, Selena Gomez, Kendall Jenner, Mila Kunis, and Anine Bing are some fashion icons.
About the quiz
Body-hugging silhouettes, luxe fabrics, and grand details define a Glam look. Colors can range from traditional to trendy tones and patterns. Silk, satin, cashmere, lycra, lace, chenille, suede, leather, and other shinier fabrics are popular. Accessories are spectacular: large, glittery jewelry, logo bags and belts, gleaming metallics, and large sunglasses. Clothes can be form-fitting or have outlandish proportions (like a tight top with billowing pants). Chrissy Tiegan, Kim Kardashian, Jennifer Lopez, Beyonce, Priyanka Chopra, Lana Del Rey, and blogger Micah Gianneli are some fashion icons.
A minimalist style is distinguished by distinct architectural lines and silhouettes. Contrary to popular belief, a minimalist wardrobe does not necessarily imply fewer pieces in your closet, whereas a minimalist style is typically comprised of outfits that use fewer pieces. Outfits are made more interesting by using unique shapes or unexpected combinations rather than adding colors, patterns, and accessories. Colors are typically classic and mostly neutral (think white, ivory, black, navy, etc). Fabrics vary but commonly include silks, cashmere, wool, denim, and cotton. There aren’t many extras. Clothes tend to fit loosely, with size and scale serving as focal points. Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen, Gwyneth Paltrow, Olivia Palermo, Leandra Medina (Man Repeller), Emmanuelle Alt, and Kate Moss are some fashion icons.
