I struggle a bit with this. I wish I had a style, but I don't really.
I like boho, hippy-chic kind of clothing- colourful silk skirts, floaty tops, sandals. The style that suits me is more tailored. A-line skirts, v-neck tops, cardigans, mary janes. I try and combine them both and have ended up with a bit of a mishmash, so I guess I am just.. me.

I seem to have a mix of styles but team everything with a leather jacket or knee high lace up boots.
I guess you could call it "the rocker look" a lot of black, animal prints, leather, band tees and the occasional zombie accessories, I love ironfist, atomic cherry, that tshirt place in petrie and a few pin up clothes sites.

Totally practiacal here as I do a lot of outside/physical work, so jeans/shorts sporty tees etc, but everyone calls me a hippy 'cos of my ideas haha.
I take comfort over anything else!! I think I'm a boring dresser actually, maybe when the kids are a bit bigger I'll try for a 'style'

Practical here too. I don't own a single pair of high heels. I don't wear much jewellery. I rarely wear make-up and I have a very short pixie cut. If I wear a skirt or a dress people comment. I wear a dress if I'm going out for dinner sometimes but for day to day stuff...not usually...in summer I will...casual maxi dresses.
Shorts/jeans and plain, tight fitting shirts all the way. I'm a size 8 with no curves, straight up and down figure. If I wear something loose fitting it just looks like I'm wearing a garbage bag. I also have no boobs so find it hard to get clothes to fit in that department because I have nothing to fill out my tops with. My Dh describes me as 'sporty' but I don't go out in my 'sports clothes' so I don't see my look as 'sporty.'

I don't know but I am known for living in ballet flats all year round. In summer I mostly wear thongs though. I am usually in either jeans or a dress.

Mine is 'girly casual' OR 'stereotyped lesbian' (I can say that 'cos I am a lesbian )
Staples: jeans, short shorts, floral or bright coloured tops or dresses, thongs or boots depending on the weather, flowy cardis (for girly casual) or:
Jeans, converse, a dark coloured tshirt and a cap for sterotyped lesbian.
On any given day I will get told "you look so straight today/you look like a lez!"

Hm I don't think I really have a style either. Whatever I like & is comfy
Most cooler days I'm in jeans, top & jacket - long woolen cardi or something lighter depending on weather. Ballet flats or converse (black & white peace signs, they are awesome)
Summer I'm in a dress or short shorts & a singlet. And thongs or pretty sandals. Occasionally if we're going out I'll wear heels but not often anymore.
My hair is usually in a pony tail sometimes with headband - which apparently makes me look sporty.
Jewellery... I wear my wedding rings, diamond earrings & diamond necklace... All from dh. I occasionally add a chain or bracelets...
Pretty boring really. The other day I asked dh if we could go shopping so I can get clothes as cool as my converse shoes lol :/

I don't have any type of "eccentric" style or anything... Just simple and comfy really. Ever since my pregnancy I live in leggings (or stretchy jeggings/jeans)... They are soo comfy and I pair them with casual strappy flats or thongs. On top I wear a longer style top - all have to be breastfeeding friendly which I have been lucky enough to find without compromising on style! Either v-necks or with a thin underlay that can be pulled to the side. In summer i love waist high mini-shorts with a pretty singlet or of course 3/4 leggings lol. I also love maxi dresses. I used to be able to pull off the whole frilly skirt type thing but i just feel so weird in it now and cant say that type of feminine wear suits me anymore, dont know why! I buy a lot from Victoria Secret in USA.
Jewellery wise I used to love the fashion-statement chunky stuff ie bangles, long necklaces etc but since bub he just wants to attack them lol so I have become a lot more sentimental in my jewellery since becoming a Mum too... I can't not wear my Mum pendant I got on my first Mothers Day and my Pandora bracelet with all the charms signifying important times in my life
Sent from my iPhone more than likely while I should be doing something else!
