IF YOU ANSWERED
Think Kate Middleton and Michelle Obama—classic dressers who always put a stylish twist on tailored and functional pieces. Clean lines and solid colors are de rigeur in your wardrobe and you don’t stray too far away from your closet must-haves. Accessories are also kept to a minimum.
Always up to date with the latest goings on in fashion, you are always out to try the next best trend. You dress without constraint and your shopping habits are pretty spontaneous. The Kardashian brood is right up your alley because while each of them have their own individual tastes, keeping up with the trends is something they spend most of their time on.
Confident and commanding in your fashion choices, you are all about style, much like Gwen Stefani and Salma Hayek. Highly structured pieces and statement accessories sit well with your outfit choices.
Much like Jennifer Aniston and Cameron Diaz, who, away from the red carpet, dress pretty casually, you stray away from fussy fashion. Softly tailored, loose with a bit of structure, and comfortable are your fashion watchwords.
When it comes to dressing, you have a lot in common with actresses Kate Winslet and Naomi Watts who have a penchant for feminine details such as ruffles, soft colors, and delicate jewelry. You’re sweet and feminine and that reflects in your dressing choices.
Much like Chloé Sevigny and Katy Perry, the impression you leave is unconventional and innovative and you aren’t afraid to step out of your comfort zone. Unexpected combinations (whether its prints or colors) create strong fashion statements.
All hail the free spirited queens who enjoy a little 1970s throwback. Loose fitting silhouettes by way of maxi dresses or wide leg trousers make up most of your wardrobe. Accessorize with large eyewear and a pile of bangles on your arm for good measure.
Pop culture, music, and a little bit of athleticism help build your look. Much like Rihanna and Beyoncé, your clothing options show off a whole lot of street cred with a dash of glitter and rock star attitude.
