I’ve been a fan of Topshop for awhile, but recently discovered that they have an amazing, robust section of content and inspiration, including one of the best tools I’ve discovered yet: My Topshop Wardrobe.
More than just a style quiz, My Topshop Wardrobe takes into account your taste as well as your lifestyle, your figure and even what you hope to get out of the quiz.
The quiz also asks you to choose five words to describe your style (i.e. rocker, minimal, glamorous, casual, etc.), what your body type is and and which features you’d like to highlight, and what types of outfits you’d wear for weekdays, weekends and nights out:
I was quite pleased (but not surprised!) by my result, “The Chic Girl”:
Clean silhouettes and classic investment pieces? Yep, that sounds about right. Here are a few of the pieces that make up The Chic Girl wardrobe, all of which I would most definitely purchase:
The quiz also features a style guide with tips on pieces that work well on your body, as well as ones that might not. There’s also an edited selection of sample outfits to help you visualize how your Topshop wardrobe can all come together. It’s sort of like a capsule wardrobe, Topshop-style.
My item recommendations were all spot-on, and the outfits were all things I’d love to wear. In fact, I frequently use the outfit recommendations to inspire my own clothing choices based on similar styles I already own. I love the way that My Topshop Wardrobe uses the same pieces in multiple outfits, which makes the whole concept feel much more realistic and approachable. I’m trying to take a smarter approach to shopping (ahem, Kon Mari method), and seeing how pieces can form the basic building blocks of a wardrobe helps inform that approach, I think. I’ve even saved a few pieces to my list and plan to pop over to Topshop soon to give them a test run! (Don’t forget, if you don’t have a full-fledged Topshop nearby, much of the line is available at Nordstrom, too!)
What do you think? I’d love to hear what your result was and if you agree with it, and if you like the pieces Topshop suggests for you!
