What Style Are You? Exploring 5 Women’s Style Profiles
Whether shopping local malls, thrift stores or the streets of Manhattan, the clothes you buy and wear tell something about your personality. Where you shop certainly doesn’t tell as much as what you wear, as there are good deals, a variety of styles, and sizes that range from petite to plus and every size in between. Explore five women’s fashion profiles to find a style that fits. Find out what the way you dress says about you.
1: Good Karma Crunchy: Being crunchy has much more to do with the natural way you dress than the texture of any food. A crunchy style revolves around practicality, comfort and a conservative look. Natural wool sweaters coupled with soft corduroys and clogs make up a well put together outfit for a walk in the park. One with nature, crunchy fashion is unassuming; perhaps made from organic cotton, dyed natural colors and offering a peek into the feminine silhouette behind a fitted cotton tee and adorable ankle-length batik skirt.
2: Totally Trendy: If frequent trips to the mall leave you feeling like you read fashion well, simply because your favorite outfit matches the mannequins in every other store window, you are totally trendy. There’s no need to buy long lasting, very good quality clothing at expensive prices if your wardrobe changes with seasonal trends. Solid staple wardrobe pieces like a good pair of jeans, a little black dress and an array of tanks and tees interchanged and accessorized according popular items in store circulars and fashion magazines is totally trendy.
3: Cheerfully Casual: Casual dress doesn’t mean dressed down, it means comfortable and flexible for a variety of everyday situations. More dressy than sweats but less formal than slacks, khaki pants or a nice pair of jeans compliment a casual outfit versatile enough to attend a pre-school story time or after dinner book club. Businesses offering casual dress days allow employees to “dress down” from more professional dress for comfort, a relaxed atmosphere and a break from more formal-less comfortable-professional or formal dress.
4: Paris Chic: You like the best and you’re not afraid to show it, with scarves, chunky jewelry and brand name accessories. Whether you are wearing a great fitting pair of jeans and a crisp white button-up or a designer gown, when you are Paris chic you are well put together, confident and well accessorized.
5: Stiletto Sexy: Stiletto heels aren’t necessary but they certainly put the stamp on sexy. For decades stiletto heels have been the signature of sexy, worn by the Rockettes, house wives breaking the barriers of house dresses of the 1950′s and today’s less conservative types who let their bodies do the talking. Less is more for the sexy dresser who exposes cleavage, a curvy silhouette and undergarments that peek through.
