What Your Clothes Say About You

Have you ever gone out shopping with a friend and she absolutely despises everything you love? This is why we say that people have very different “tastes” when it comes to clothing. However, this taste isn’t something that has popped out of the blue. The choice of clothes a person makes can say a lot about their personality. It’s not us who are saying this but there are studies to back this point up. An array of surveys and studies has been conducted in the area and they reveal that there is a psychological reason behind our choice of clothes (1).

There are many things that determine the way you dress including the climate, the occasion, your age, and your appearance. However, the most important factor is our personality. If you are someone who drools over floral prints there are other women who think that they’re “too girly” or too sensitive. This applies not just for clothes but accessories as well. While some people accessorize a lot, some others like to keep it simple. Fashionistas have divided all women into five groups according to their style of clothing. Read on to know who group you fit in.

1. Classic

If you like timeless classics that make you look elegant and beautiful, this is you. People who love the classic way of clothing stack up on dresses, skirts, and blouses that are beautiful and quite feminine. However, these clothes are more about their simplicity and fabric. You wouldn’t find too fancy designs or patterns on these clothes. Also, the classic dressers go for dull and darker colors like black, white, brown, or beige more often than bright ones like yellow or orange.

Classic dressers are often quite mature for their age and they like simplicity better than fast-changing and loud trends. These are the people who like stability in their life. If you like to dress up businesswoman like in classy skirts and blouses, you are a very confident woman. Celebrities who like classic clothing include Michelle Obama, Diane Kruger, Angelina Jolie, Chanel, Victoria Beckham, and Anne Hathaway.

2. Casual (Natural)

If comfort comes before style for you, you’re a natural or casual dresser. The way you dress makes you look like the girl-next-door. You love your pair of jeans and your cupboard is filled with printed t-shirts and track pants. Pair them up with some sneakers, you’re good to go anywhere. You’re the kind of person who would wear a sweatshirt and cap when walking into a club.

If you’re a casual dresser, you’re a fun person! You love to travel and you seek adventure as the most essential thing in your life. You don’t like to waste your time on drama and complicated things and you’d rather invest your time in things that make you happy. Audrey Hepburn, Selena Gomez, Jennifer Aniston, Natalie Portman, Ellen Degeneres, Mila Kunis, and Cameron Diaz are a few of your celebrity style sisters!

3. Romantic

Yes, these are the floral people! If you can’t stop saying “awww” when you see a pretty dress with laces and net all over it, you’re a romantic person. Pinks and bows are your favorite and you like everything girly. You like high heels and light colors with pretty prints and frills.

Your personality is a lot like your clothing. Bubbly and cute! You’re the kind of girl who dreams about boys and has filmed your own wedding inside your mind a hundred thousand times since your teenhood. You have your girl squad and you love to hang out with them. Marilyn Monroe, Naomi Watts, Scarlett Johansson, Taylor Swift, Emma Watson, and Eva Mendes are some of the celebrity romantic dressers.

4. Dramatic

Dramatic clothing is all about attention-grabbing colors and patterns. You love to wear your clothes, accessories, and makeup in a way that you’ll turn a few heads around. You want to be the trendsetter among the crowd and you’re not afraid to experiment with your clothes.

If you’re a dramatic dresser, you are bold, intimidating, and demanding — you’re the person who will stand up for yourself and for others if needed. Monica Bellucci, Megan Fox, Kim Kardashian, Emma Stone, Oprah Winfrey, and Jennifer Lopez are your celebrity style twins.

5. Trendy

You’re the chameleons in the women community and you follow the fashion magazines and ramp walks to update your wardrobe every now and then. You get attracted to new trends and you have an eye to pick up the best clothes while shopping.

A trendy dresser’s personality is very progressive. You don’t mind dumping a boyfriend if he isn’t good enough for you. You’re also not the one who will stick to a job just because it pays you well. You like to explore new things in life and make the best out of your decisions. Beyoncé, Miley Cyrus, Jessica Simpson, Hilary Duff, Paris Hilton, Avril Lavigne, Kristen Stewart, and Jessica Alba are a few among the trendy dressers.

No matter what you wear, always remember that comfort is the key. Style is only good as long as you can carry it well. You can wear a Ralph Lauren ensemble and still look boring if you don’t have the confidence. At the same time, you can totally nail a white t-shirt and blue jeans look if that’s what you feel good in. We hope you got the formula. Which type of dresser are you?
