I know my fashion sense is really in flux right now, and it feels like I've learned/changed so fast in the last couple months since I joined that everyone riding along with me is getting whiplash! I was just wondering if you could help me figure out what my "style" is on this leg of my style journey, and how to describe it, because I think that would help me focus in on what direction I should be going in in my future purchases, outfit styling, etc.
I've read these posts:
and I can't seem to figure out what my type is. I think I'm moving from sporty natural and modern classic pre-YLF, more toward artistic eclectic and trendy fashionista now, but I have outfits that would fit into nearly all of those categories.
Also, I read Aida's list and tried to come up with my own:
PRIMARY NEUTRALS: black & white, gray
SECONDARY NEUTRALS: brown, camel/tan, cream
MAIN COLORS: red, rust/pumpkin, turquoise/teal, olive, eggplant, navy
ACCENT COLORS: mustard, raspberry, jade green, cobalt blue
DON'T WEAR COLORS: pastels (rarely) and fluorescent brights
ELEMENTS OF LOVE:
red red red (main color, shoes, accessories, whatever), esp. black/white/red combo
bold jewel tone/autumn colors
color and pattern mixing (still learning the ropes)
bias cut skirts
ladylike/feminine clothing--ruffles, flared skirts
retro shoes (chunky stacked heels, ankle or T straps)
a little bit of 70's/boho (but not too much)
Asian-inspired modern pieces
statement accessories--shoes, handbags, belts that stand out
unique twists on classic pieces--like printed pencil skirts instead of plain ones
jewelry--still trying to figure this out but I prefer unique pieces over classic ones
wearing specs almost all the time
minimal makeup, straight hair
1. Polished professional
2. Trendy fashionista
3. Stylish but comfortable MOTG
So, how would you describe my style? I've included my favorite looks so far to help you out. (ETA: see my profile pic for one more favorite outfit!) Also, if you are into color theory, what "season" does this make me? Because I'm confused whether I'm a winter or autumn...black/white/red seems like a winter, but all my other main colors are more autumn-y.
