Simply put – style is personal. We all have a certain fashion disposition – be it a love for the contemporary, a devotion to the classics, or an affection for all things avant-garde. To help figure out your sartorial sensibility – and dress it – check out our guide below.
For the Classicist
Your style is well-defined and eternally chic. Opt for classic staples like a crisp button-down and tailored-to-perfection trousers that will never go out of style.
For the Individualist
You experiment with an enviable fearlessness. Never shy away from bold colors or patterns (like the ombre sweater below) and always seek out avant-garde cuts.
For the Modernist
Your look is an artful curation of tradition and trends. Embrace clean lines, a monochrome palette, and contemporary pairings like a casual tee under a dressy double-breasted blazer.
Our Theory Boutique opens Thursday, November 15, at 11AM ET.

AN INTERVIEW WITH WOMENSWEAR DESIGNER MIGUELINA GAMBACCINI
Miguelina is known for her ultra-feminine designs: romantic textures, airy colors, and international allure. Her Fall 2010 collection (which our selection comes from) is inspired by the Spanish dancers depicted in Colombian photographer Ruven Afanador’s book, Mil Besos, and gets a shot of edge. We touched base with Miguelina herself to get her take on style, inspiration, and travel.
Rue La La: What is about the Spanish dancers that you found so enticing during design for your Fall 2010 collection?
Miguelina: The passion of the Flamenco dancers and the freedom of their expression. I responded to the way Ruven captured their spirit through his work.
Rue La La: What are other sources of inspiration for your line?
