Do You Know Which 'Style Tribe' You Belong To?

We've been watching and learning, and we've found out what the style cults are this season. Choose your tribe, and we'll tell you how to dress the part.



​The Expressionists

​Eclectic and non-conformist, this tribe thrives on mixing genres and pairings. Think patchwork, headgear, dresses with jeans—basically creating your own, individual style niche. The more eccentric, the better!

​The Girly-Girls​

​They favour feminine silhouttes and form-flattering pieces (and may or may not have a lot of pink in their wardrobes). Florals, pinks, and pastels are worked in with sheer and lace; as is hair and their make-up done to perfection.

​The Models Off-Duty​

​They already know what's trending in the style world, and have that effortless-cool vibe that just works! Their outfits of choice? Worn-in jeans, fitted or slouchy tank tops, a biker jacket to upgrade a basic, and boots or sneakers with everything (including dresses).

​The Normcore Lot ​

​They're stylish, without being, like, obvious! Dressing down, but not dowdy, is their mantra, and oversized shirts, basic tees, and casual footwear are their faves.

​The Minimalists​

​Solid colours and sharp lines, worn with simple accessories, or none at all—this clan is as stripped down as it gets. The look is clean-cut, non-fuss and stylish, with a strong focus on tailoring and fit.

​The Boho Crew​

​Very Coachella couture, this tribe swears by its fringes, flowy skirts, denim shorts, John Lennon glasses, band shirts with skirts, gladiator shoes... Playing mix 'n' match with unexpected colours and silhouettes is their forte.

​​The Grunge Gang 

A throwback to the '80s, plaid shirts, baggy denims, graphic prints, utility boots and oversized sunglasses are synonymous with this clan. You'll spot them a mile away by their just out-of-bed tresses and Devil-may-care grins.
