Style Type Quiz

Defining your style type gives you a place to begin. It’s a way to uncover and come to grips with who you are, in order to determine what is appropriate and inappropriate for your personal style (and why), and to identify which exciting fashion direction or possibilities exist for you.

As fashion stylists and personal shoppers, we have worked with thousands of women from coast to coast, and here's what we've found. Everyone belongs to one or a combination of these five style types: Classic, Chic, Whimsical, Bohemian and Avant-Garde.  Take the  style type quiz to find out which one you are. Knowing your style type gives you clarity and a direction to go. For more tested style advice that will help you step into the movie star version of yourself, enter your email address below.
