Lately I've been reading a lot about the Kibbie style types - there are a variety of different styles like romantic, classic, dramatic, natural, gamine and then there are variations of each - theatrical romantic, dramatic classic etc
I took a quiz on the yuku website and most of my answers came out as romantic, but I can tell you right off the bat that the romantic frills and ruffles don't suit me in the least. I decided to revisit the quiz and be completely honest and found myself more as a classic with a dramatic edge. I then studied the various celebrity collages on the website and the dramatic classic type really resonated with me:
I was particularily inspired by this photo of Jackie O:
I'm not 100% sure if I'm a dramatic classic yet, but this is the style I resonate with. I usually love wearing classic peices like pencil skirts, shirt-dresses, fitted dresses with a classic gold chain belt. I've never liked big, clunky jewelery - in fact, I prefer delicate peices - diamond studs, gold ball stud earings, pearls, classic gold hoop etc. However, when it comes to necklaces, I like something with a bit of drama - perhaps even a hint of avant-garde. Here is a look that I wear to work often - a classic dress (now in my True Autumn colour) with leather chocolate brown boots from Nine West:
Curious to hear what you think about me as a 'dramatic-classic' type!!!
