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: Black & White

Quiz-Spring 2012 Trends-Black and White
Product Information: Top, Bag, Pants, Earrings, Striped bangle, Shoes

The black and white trend is all about contrast. I love this shirt because it offers a fresh take on the classic black and white horizontal stripe; if you’re feeling brave, you can wear it with a bandeau underneath, otherwise any black tank would work. Pair the top with classic straight-leg black pants and trendy black and white flatforms. Finish with a contrasting white and black bag, some bangles, and some mustache earrings for fun.

Mostly B’s: Bold Florals

Quiz-Spring 2012 Trend-Floral
Product Information: Top, Multi-flower ring, Gold ring, Rose ring, Pants, Bag, Shoes

You are not afraid to stand out, and these bold floral pants (seen in our latest campus fashion feature at Bucknell University) will let your personality shine through. Pair the pants with a sheer button-down like the one above. (Again, you can wear it like the model with a bandeau underneath, or over a tank for more coverage.)

On the runways, we saw head-to-toe floral looks incorporating contrasting prints. To make this trend more wearable, I decided to bring in contrasting florals with the addition to some flower rings. Finally for added balance, complete the look with a simple black bag and penny loafers.

Mostly C’s: Pastels

Quiz-Spring 2012 Trends- Pastel
Product Information: Top, Necklace, Bag, Skirt, Watch, Shoes

Your style tends to be soft and feminine, so this season’s color-blocked pastels are a fantastic fit with your look. Start off with this mint green top and peach high-low skirt. Then just add some simple accessories like a statement necklace, pastel watch, white bag, and of course these flats which showcase the color-blocked pastel look oh-so well.

Mostly D’s: Peplum

Quiz-Spring 2012 Trend-Peplum
Product Information: Top, Necklace, Bag, Shorts, Watch, Shoes

Peplum is a great trend for those who have a feminine, yet bold sense of style. Start by pairing this peplum top with some floral shorts. Accessorize with a beaded necklace, blue bag, and gold watch. To finish the look, throw on a pair of bright pink sandals. (And yes, again, we saw these on campus recently too – fashionista Brittany was wearing in a recent University of Iowa street style post).

What do you think?

    You should do a post on how to wear sheer tops. I see you feature them ALL the time.

    I’m LOVING the sheer sleeveless blouse, especially in ivory. It’s sold everywhere now.

    I got the black and white trend! Totally cool since I have quite many pieces in black in my wardrobe and a white jacket. Already making up some combinations in my head now :)

    I have a question-do you guys tend to think of parisian style as very girly and soft? because i notice that in a lot of your quizzes and stories. i think paris is known for being romantic and many of the women in the fifties and sixties were very feminine, like brigitte bardot, but now i feel like the style has changed a lot perhaps? women are more effortless in appearance, think lots of neutral colors and blacks and whites, motorcycle boots, leather jackets, messy long hair, etc. just an observation :)

    I got the peplum. But I haven’t had the courage yet to wear peplums because I am not sure ifit’ll look good with my body type. >.< But I guess i'll try.
    The peplum does compliment my style in some way but I think the black and white describes my style more although i also love pastels.

    I got black and white, which is probably true. In fact, I bought some jewelry this weekend that fits!

    I’m a bold florals and pastel girl at heart, but I love the black and white look. That shirt is so chic with a dash of graphic contrast. It seems more like a lasting look than a trend.

    I got black and white! I love the outfit (and black and white, great for all seasons!), especially the shirt.

    @ Isra: mine as well! I’m a huge fan of patels, though black and white is something timeless that every woman could wear at any occasion. The beautiful flower pants is on my whishlist!

    Wow! I’m supposed to do the pastel thing. Good thing I just bought some pastel mint tights! Just have to say, this sight is very cool. I’m telling all my geeky friends!
