Quiz Results – No peeking!

Below are the results of the quiz. Don’t look if you haven’t taken it yet! I’ve created one outfit for each result to help give you some ideas for what to wear. Enjoy!

Mostly A’s: Burgundy

Quiz-Fall 2012 Colors-Burgundy
Product Information: Sweater, Dress, Ring, Socks, Bag, Earrings, Shoes

Burgundy is a great color to wear when you want to stand out without seeming like you’re trying too hard. For this look, I chose a cable-knit sweater you can wear over a burgundy bow-print dress. To further incorporate this beautiful hue into your look, try these lovely oxfords and some trendy frilly socks. Lastly, accessorize with these adorable button earrings, a bow ring, and a simple black handbag.

Mostly B’s: Green

Quiz-Fall 2012 Colors-Green
Product Information: Jacket, T-shirt, Belt, Pants, Necklace, Hat, Shoes

To complement your busy day, try a comfy-cool look like the one above. Wearing two different tones of green will evoke your laid-back mood, but also shows the world that you didn’t just roll out of bed… even if you did. (Don’t worry – it’ll be our little secret!) To offset the two shades of green, pair these pieces with a simple grey tee and wide leather belt. Finish the outfit with some hi-top sneakers, an eye-catching necklace, and a baseball cap.

Mostly C’s: Pink

Quiz-Fall 2012 Colors-Pink
Product Information: Belt, Shirt, Jacket, Bag, Shoes, Sunglasses, Skirt

You’re feeling fun and flirty today, making pink the perfect color to complement your current mood. I love the idea of pairing a spotted high-low skirt with pieces in different shades of pink, like a cotton candy-colored blouse and hot pink suede oxfords. To keep the look from going full-on Barbie, toughen it up with a black leather jacket. Complete your ensemble with a patent tote, black belt, and sunglasses. And if you’re feeling up for it, try out a bright pink lip, too!

Mostly D’s: Brown

Quiz-Fall 2012 Colors-Brown
Product Information: Pants, Sweater, Collar, Sunglasses, Watch, Bag, Booties

Just because you don’t feel like getting all glammed up today doesn’t mean you can’t look stylish. First, throw on this color-blocked brown sweatshirt over some black skinny jeans. Next, slip into some brown ankle boots, and put on your everyday watch and black sunglasses. Finally, a bright blue bag adds a necessary pop of color while a studded removable collar adds that unexpected, fashion-forward touch. Finish the look with a trendy top-knot to keep your tresses up and out of the way.

    Love the last outfit! You can never go wrong with a pair of skinny jeans and comfy sweater! Ankle booties are a great transition from season to season. I just got a really cute pair from Chinese Laundry for under $100! Bargain for something that I will be wearing all year.
