ARE YOU A MINIMALIST OR A MAXIMALIST?

No matter who we are, we all have our go-to style, wardrobe favourites and personal fashion rules that we must always adhere to. But where do you measure up? Are you this season’s discreetly chic Minimalist or exciting Maximalist? Take our quick quiz and see where you end up.



Q1

a Black, navy, cream, white and grey – and you almost never stray from them.
b If it’s good enough for a rainbow, it’s good enough for me.


Q2

When you think of the brands to fill your wardrobe with, you think:

a T by Alexander Wang, Joseph, Vince and Helmut Lang.
b Moschino, Dolce & Gabbana, Versace, Kenzo... the list goes on.


Q3

Prints?

a They are for walls, children and wrapping paper.
b I wear prints like colour – a lot and often clashing.


Q4

Which streetstyle are you more likely to stalk?







Q5

When you think of the 1990s, you think...

b I tell you what I want, what I really, really want – brand emblazoned underwear and DKNY graphic T-shirts.


Q6

Your vintage style icon?





Q7

Who is your favourite blogger?



a Camille over the Rainbow – the half French-half British fashion journalist who is the epitome of Parisian chic.
b The Blonde Salad – she’s the designer label queen and if Chiara Ferragni has it, I want it.


Q8

You’re given 3 hours to shop Flannels flagship, who would you recruit as a personal shopper?



a Phoebe Philo – the British designer at the helm of luxury French fashion house Celine is renowned for her simple chic dressing, love of Stan Smiths and hair tucking.

THAT'S IT!

Count up your a’s and b’s – which are you?


Minimalist Maximalist

Mostly a's?

You are a MINIMALIST.

You enjoy a refined aesthetic with your wardrobe consisting of classic staples and trans-seasonal investment pieces with a contemporary flair. With a predominately neutral colour palette, layering timeless designs with fluid lines like style icons Phoebe Philo and Sofia Coppola is your everyday norm and nothing feels better than a T by Alexander Wang linen T-shirt under an oversized Carven coat.

Mostly b's?

You are a MAXIMILIST.

Nothing feels better than when someone recognises a statement look and you aim to stand out with a love of bright, bold colours and vivid prints. If it’s branded, you’ll have it and something logo emblazoned from the Moschino collection is your Autumn/Winter 2014 season essential. You look towards Anna Dello Russo and Cara Delevingne for your style inspiration and a Kenzo sweatshirt is already in your Flannels bag.
