What Is Your Personal Style?

Good afternoon;

      What is your personal style?  Looking through fashions in magazines and out on the streets it is enjoyable to make a connection between what you see and styles that you have chosen in the past, are wearing right now or hope to wear in the future.  My hope for this piece is for you to make connections to the various styles.


The country style consists of cowboy boots, denim, suede, plaid, corduroy, button up shirts, equestrian, vests, short shorts and white cotton.


The classic style consists of simplicity and chic wardrobe and accessories.  Cardigans, blazers, diamonds, boots, pearls, button down shirts, heals and ballet flats are often worn with this look.

Bohemian Chic

The Olsen twins and Sienna Miller are famous for their boho style.  This style consists of
chunky bracelets, vegan friendly sandals, cowboy boots, big dangly earrings, tunics, floral prints, printed maxi dress and scarves.


Black, black and more black. Goth styling is often tattoo inspired and consists of stripped pants, leather, zippers, plaid, dark red, brocade, hardware, chokers, fishnet stockings, studs and leopard prints.


Courtney Love and Johnny Depp are often styled in grunge.  It consists of plaid shirts, ripped jeans, Doc Martens, distressed denim, layered knits, plaid flowery dresses, leggings, cut off jeans, sneakers, tie dye and coveralls.  Grunge is also defined by natural fabrics.


Lace, pearls, Coco channel, ribbons, ruffles, satin and sequins help to define the glamorous style.
