What’s my style? Find out from the 12 attitudes and Clothing personality types

Fashion that you follow and your sense of style reflects your attitude. If there are hundreds of fashion styles they all have their base on the attitude and personality of people wearing them. Whatever your fashion your attitude defines it, completes it. Here is a classification of the best of these attitudes and the personalities that inherently contain these attitudes. Which style would you say is yours?

Your Fashion style & Personality type

1. Trans-positive  / Gender Fluid

When you do not consider your gender when you choose your clothes you are confirming that you have this attitude. Under a trans-positive influence, Menswear becomes more and more feminine and womenswear masculine.  Young Rapper and actor Jaden Smith is doing his thing and flaunting this attitude willy-nilly. Check out the article where you can see the many times he has done it here 

2. Sophisticated

A sophisticate is a person who is very cultured and classy. The fashion of this person aims to maintain an elegant, well dressed image with luxury fashion brands and haute couture dressing, without in any way going overboard. She will take minute care of presenting herself with utmost perfection.  

3. Non-conformist

A non-conformist is a person with a unique attitude in life and values his individuality too much to sacrifice it for anything. If your attitude is this in life, it must translate to your fashion as well. Goth, rockabilly and other alternative styles all follow a non-conformist attitude

4. Smart

You always want to be very comfortable in anything you wear. You are casual, confident and daring in your fashion style but at the same time, your outfits are simple, elegant and well co-ordinated. In the end, you look well dressed and put together without any skin show, or over made up looks. A preppy fashion style defines this smart outlook towards fashion.

5. Conservative

This attitude of strictness and prudishness translates to wearing modest  clothes. Traditional, conventional are other names similarly used. Religious ideologies like that of Muslim women, conservative Christian and Orthodox Jewish women etc may be behind this attitude and the fashion styles that follow it.

Modest fashion is a representation of this attitude and celebrates covered up fashions. Check out more on this here.

6. Unkempt

The word unkempt means ‘not combed’ – with this attitude you absolutely are the opposite of a neat well-groomed style. This untidy ‘wild child attitude’ is mostly combined with faded jeans, loose clothing, untidy hair and an attitude of revolt. 

7. Adventurous

If you are innovative and do not mind experimenting with fashion or what is sure to come in the near future you are adventurous. When you are adventurous people may call your clothes outlandish, but you do not care. You know this will be the norm soon enough. 

8. Retro

Opposite of the futuristic attitude. You like to live in the past and bring on all the style elements of yesteryears into your garments. You are not alone. Wearing vintage clothing is a passion of many. There sure are rules to follow as you will find here.

9. Bargain Hunter

A bargain hunter refuses to pay the full retail price for anything. It is a psychological attitude towards money and carries over to your fashion style as well. You will refuse to buy fashion styles which are not value for money – you are very price conscious. You do not blindly follow fashion but may settle for classics which you can wear again and again year after year. Buying things that last is a positive attribute of this attitude.

10. Ultra feminine

When you cannot think beyond candy pinks and pretty dresses in fashion, this attitude is responsible. The styles that represent this attitude are Kawai, Lolita 

11. Avant-Garde

If you like to push all boundaries in your quest for finding your style you have an Avante Garde attitude. In essence, it is a radical artistic attitude emphasized with monochrome colors and minimalistic styling that permeates all things in life, not just fashion. Aesthetics and functional aspects are combined in the style that emerges from this attitude. 

12. Anti-fashion

An attitude of not caring for fashion at all; the attitude of rebellion against the overly fashionable. Underdressing is the key here. Minimalism rules. Read more about this attitude here

    Very good resume of Fashion Styles – I seem to fit into about five!!! but overall as I am a Londoner living in London I define my style as City Casual – that is smart, comfortable, with prettiness in prints and colours when I can find them , and an English classic style in coats. I love fashion as you may be able to tell. Obviously for formal occasions, cruises, weddings, I can change my style upwards and I love to do that.

    so happy i found you! now retired wo need for designer style suits and evening wear, im excited to experiment and learn new things.
    soon to move out of the US to some exotic place and dreaming of designing new fashions.

    thank you for giving us this amazong site.

  3. I enjoyed this is valuable information, also I learned that I I am a bargain hunter. Recently I was looking for a winter jacket and went to many stores but I could not pick any single one. Mostly I did not like them but I see almost everybody wearing that type jacket, may be for the fashion trend for this year. Also I did not want to pay the high price for the famous brand . Any way finally I decided I will make one for myself. I took fashion designer courses many years ago but unfortunately I could not afford the time to become a fashion designer. Finally it turned out I am constantly altering everybody’s clothes in my family including mine. I am fortunate enough to find out your Sew Guide Web site.
    Thank you
