Whether you choose to change with them or stay true to your first fashion choices determine your style. The main personalities we base our personal style on are all different. These are a few of the main fashion “categories”.

Preppy style usually overlaps with classic mixed with a little girly. A-line skirts, colored shirts, pearls and ballet flats are basics for classic/preppy dress.
Minimalists are as the word suggests -minimal. They are basic dressers. Usually all black or one solid color with accessories that are not over the top.
Romantic style doesn’t necessarily mean they are looking for love. when dressing for this style flowers, hearts, ruffles, flouncing, soft fabrics are usually their go to.
Bohemian or “Boho” styled women usually go for anything fringe, breezy/earthy fabrics, long gowns or skirts and loose fitting cloths.
Trendsetters or trendy personalities are usually the women who aren’t afraid to try something new! Fashion forward styles aren’t anything new for them.
Next is punk style or edgy which is to be anti-materialistic. Leather, spandex and leopard, skinny jeans, band tees and vintage.
Last but not least, eclectic style. They are a melting pot of each and almost every style. Patterns and prints mixed with bold accessories, minimal pieces paired with bold colors, leather and lace. Throwing caution to the wind, these women never say never!
