Evaluating your style quiz answers

Now that you’ve taken our style quiz, find out who you are and how to define your look. Add up your number of A’s, B’s, C’s, D’s and enter them in the blocks below:

Mostly A’s: The Natural
You dress for comfort – you possess no tailored suits or jackets. Your color palette includes earth tones, white, the colours of nature. You possess none or very few prints. You like uncomplicated clothes- you refuse to spend more than 15 minutes in putting yourself together.

Warning: you could be seen as too casual and not serious enough about your job. Remember to dress for the position you aspire to be in not the one you are currently in. Your overly “plain” style may leave you to be unnoticed.
Tip: Introduce some darker neutrals as anchor garments in stiffer fabrics and more tailored lines.

Mostly B’s: The Romantic
You are a true romantic and always look feminine and pretty.
You love wearing loose-flowing, romantic tops, skirts, and dresses. Ruffles, lace, chiffon, pleats, floral prints are all wardrobe staples.

Warning: you could be seen as too “girly” and not taken serious enough specially in a dominant male environment.
Tip: Don’t put all the elements together e.g. ruffles, sheer fabric, pleated skirt, pastels. Use on or two of these and anchor with a tailored, darker neutral garment.

Mostly C’s: The Classic
You have an easy way about dressing and are always put together and chic. You stick very close to the basics. Fashion does not dictate your wardrobe – you believe in classic pieces.
You value quality more than quantity and style more than fashion. Yours is an understated look. You appear elegant and chic at all times. You prefer plains rather than prints, dark neutrals rather than colour.

Warning: you could appear boring and outdated
Tip: introduce some new colours and prints into your wardrobe so you appear more current.

Mostly D’s: The Fashionista
You’re the ultimate fashionista! You love to dress up. You buy all the latest fashion magazines and always know what are the latest fashion trends and colour.

Warning: you could appear too trendy and over the top in a tradionally corporate environment.
Tip: Use the trendy print, colour in edited versions iow not from head to toe. Anchor outfit with a classic piece e.g. tailored jacket or pants in a dark neutral.
