  4. Fun stuff! I will use this quiz everyday!!!! Most E’s and D’s is the kind of style I admire the most !

  5. Today it told me to wear jewl tones funny thing I wore purple today didnt even take the quiz until I got home lol. Can you do more quiz like this

  6. Oh good, I’m glad you guys like it! Thank you all for your responses! They are really much appreciated :]

    As for the leg wear, I understand where you guys are coming from. When I made these I tried a few different options, but these final outfits just ended up working best. But I will definitely take your suggestions into consideration for next time. Thanks!

  7. i did this for how i’m feeling now, which is bummed and super stressed since i’m leaving for school in two days, and it was perfect! but beyond that…i really really love this. i can’t tell you how many times i’ve looked up and down this website desperate for a shown outfit that i own all the pieces to! i NEVER know what to wear. and even though all of these outfits themselves weren’t perfect for me, personally, this quiz is the best thing i’ve ever found on this website. and i visit like everyday, so…you know i love it! thanks 🙂

  8. Love this! It totally captured my mood, mostly A’s and few others. But agree, would you please do a post on bootcut jeans or flare jeans I mean I love my skinny jeans but I just got a gorgeous pair of bootcut jeans and would enjoy a post (:

  9. Well, I adore the outfits, and I love my skinnies just as much as the next girl, however I would appreciate a little more variation in leg wear. 4/5 seems a bit redundant… What about winter shorts? Skirts? Cuts of jeans that aren’t skinny (bootcut, flare, wide-legged)?

  10. Perfect! I got mostly A’s. I’m totally wearing an outfit like that tomorrow! Please do more quizzes! This one was extraordinarily helpful.
