Once you have completed the questionnaire, count how many times you have answered A, B and so on, and choose from the list of results below to determine your predominant style personality. 

Mainly A:  Creative
You are great at combining different items of clothing and accessories to give yourself a unique and interesting look, and you rarely throw anything out because you know you will use it at some point, even if it has to be remodelled. if you’re not careful, though, your creative tendencies could result in your being inappropriately dressed for certain occasions.

Mainly B:  Dramatic
You always want to make an entrance. you love to be noticed and often wear clothes with a wow factor. Whatever the latest fashion, you will have 
a go at wearing it, even if it doesn’t particularly suit you. Shopping is one of your favourite pastimes. You like to party – spending a quiet evening at home reading a book is not your scene.

Mainly C:  Romantic
You love everything about dressing up and planning your wardrobe. Your clothes are pretty and you adore all sorts of details: bows, ruffles, flounces, appliqués and fringes. You love to experiment with new skincare and bodycare products, and never go out without your perfume. You will spend longer than anybody else looking after yourself and your grooming.

Mainly D:  Classic
You have a fairly formal wardrobe. You like to appear well turned out and elegant, and your tops are usually tucked in. You are quite content to keep to the same hairstyles, and hate it when your hairdresser moves away. Your make-up routine is fixed and you rarely experiment with new shades. You have a few favourite stores that you visit when you need new clothes. 

Mainly E:  Natural
Feeling comfortable in your clothes is the most important factor for you when choosing what to wear; anything that constricts, digs in or pinches is not an option. You prefer casual styling to formal business wear, and you hate a cluttered look – simple lines and designs are more you. In keeping with your no-fuss attitude, clothes must be easy-care and ideally non-iron.

Mainly F:  City Chic
You enjoy your clothes but are not fanatical about them. You dedicate time and thought to the way you look, and you love accessories, sometimes spending more on bags and shoes than on an outfit itself.  Having probably tried out most of the other key styles and experimented with lots of different looks, you now know what suits you.
