Our wardrobe sends messages loud and clear to the world such as:

” I like myself”, “ I care about the way I look,” “ I am an individual worth knowing“, “I don’t really care about myself”, “I don’t care how I look because no one will like me anyway” or “I am no one special, so I hate the world”.

What we say at a first meeting with a teacher, a classmate or a potential employer is only half of what the other person “hears”. Before, we even open our mouths, our appearance speaks for us.

Clothes have clout. They have the power to enhance or inhibit a positive image. If we package ourselves to reflect who we really are, we have better chances at succeeding in life, in making people like us, in communicating better with our teachers and even finding the right guy.

Corporations spend million of dollars “packaging” their products to attract a certain market, the size of the product, the color of the package, the models they hire to represent their products,- all are considerations that corporations make when they want to induce and persuade a consumer into buying their product. Personal “packaging” works the same way. We want to present an attractive “product” in order to attract the right friends, the right attention from peers, attract the right guy and finally land the right job.

So, we must learn how to choose a flattering wardrobe in our correct colors, select a flattering hairstyle, learn to apply makeup that complements our skin tone, implement a skin regime to keep our complexion radiant and be able to be perceived as important and last…….HOW TO SELECT CLOTHES that exemplify OUR TRUE PERSONALITY STYLE.

Each of us girls have a very different and distinct style than another.
To find out our own fashion style, think of your preferences and tastes as well as your lifestyle. As soon as you define your personality, your fashion direction will emerge and you will make your special fashion statement no matter where you go. Your closet will start to develop a signature of your own and your friends will begin to make comments such as “This is so much Donatella”, or “I know exactly what to get Donatella for her birthday” and etc.
You will feels so much at ease in your clothes and you will gain a level of confidence you did not know you had. “A NEW YOU “will emerge.

Please go to part two to take the quiz.

Mostly A’s you are Classic- Preppy
Mostly B’s you are Casual-Sporty
Mostly C’s you are mostly Dramatic-Diva
Mostly D’s you are Romantic-Girly

If you are Dramatic-Diva:
You never follow the crowd. Everyone expects the unexpected from you and you don't disappoint them. You're not afraid to mix the latest trend with an old favorite because you have fun with your clothes. Playful shapes and prints were made for you. You wear bold, hot colors and patterns with leggings and minis one day, and delicate laces with bold tweeds the next. Anything to be different. You've got style with a smile!
Is this you???

If you are Classic-Preppy:
You are well tailored, wear clean-lined clothes that never go out of style and you make clothing choices that are not based on what is “in” at that moment. You're not a fad follower and prefer the tried and true. You love fine detail, natural fabrics and time-honored shapes. You have a subtle way with clothes that is usually understated. You favor monograms and crested blazers and pearls are your preferred accessory. Your footwear? Tassled loafers, sleek boots, fine leather flats. Is this you???

If you are Casual-Sporty:
You wear, No-Fuss, ready-for-anything clothes. You love the active influence in fashion because it suits your fast-paced competitive lifestyle. You strive to be self-assured and fit. You know how to stretch those action oriented basics around which you've built your wardrobe with. Jeans, cycle pants, sweats, leggings, tanks and T-shirts all become fashion fun in your hands. You can make an active look go from the gym to the street with a few simple accessory changes. Comfort and convenience are musts for you. Is this you???

If you are Romantic-Girly:
You prefer soft, flowing clothes. Nothing body tight or exaggerated. You love delicate details—touches of lace, ruffles and bows. You collect antiques and sentimental favorites and mix them with modern classics. Your favorite fabrics include velvets, fluffy angora, soft wools, satins and lace which you love to mix with country tweeds and woolly knits. Tiered longish skirts, peek-a-boo petticoats, ruffled, full sleeved blouses with frilly high collars are for you; so are tiny prints, soft shawls, antique pins, ribbons and silky bows-Is this you???

As I mentioned before, we are all unique and not "cookie cutter" made. You will find out from this test that you did not score 100% A's or B's or C' or D's. But whatever the highest number and the secondary number is, most likely these first two are the two personality styles that you may want to get know more and start building a wardrobe with.

Example:If you scored high in dramatic and second highest score was in romantic; you can blend the two by adding soft accessories such as headbands with flowers, or necklaces with flowers (and so forth) to your bold-trendy outfits.

Have fun  becoming "YOU" only better.
