Fashion 101: What’s Your Style Persona?

What makes one dress stand out while the other falls short? It’s called style. More often than not, style and fashion are lumped into the same category. However, they are very different. Fashion is the clothes we see in magazines, what the mannequins are wearing at department stores and what is “trending.”

Style is using fashion to create a look that mirrors your personality. It’s an outward expression of who you are and how you want the world to perceive you. So what does your wardrobe say about you? Let’s dive into some of the many styles. Maybe you fit into one, maybe you don’t or maybe a few pinpoint you. The awesome thing about style is that like you, it is always, evolving.

The Minimalist

Sharon Ojong

You stick to mellow hues, mostly grays and whites, and some people would call you a jeans and T-shirt kind of girl. If you dress up, you’re wearing a simple dress with a small, delicate necklace and just a dusting of makeup to bring out your naturally gorgeous features.

The Bombshell

Hot pink lips, teased hair, sky-high heels and a short dress to top it off. Ladies, you have met your match. You play up your curves, never leave the house without a full face of makeup and aren’t afraid to show it all off. You’ve got the latest statement jewelry, a closet full of jewel-colored pieces and leopard is your favorite “neutral.”

The Cool Mom

You’ve got the latest haircut, most expensive clothes and a Marc Jacobs touch to everything. People compliment you all the time asking how you do it all while looking so good. You’re that shopper that scours the Internet to get the best deal online when shopping for women’s shoes and when you go out for a night on the town you still make all the heads turn.

The Working Girl

Veronica Odeka

Pumps, a button-up blouse and a blazer are your ultimate power pieces and you rock them all. You always look professionally put together, and your closet looks like you just stepped into Ann Taylor. On the weekends, you prefer ballet flats to short heels and you wouldn’t be caught dead in anything with spikes, skulls or a pop of bubblegum pink.

Wild Child

You’re out to make a statement. Chains, leather, the latest biker jacket, floral headbands are all familiar to you — the more the better. Your wrists are stacked with an eclectic mix of rocker jewelry and your favorite color is neon. Nothing is too trendy, too cool or over the top. You want to stand out and you’ve got the personality to pull anything off.
