The Style Synergy Quiz

Distinguish yourself with your style

Have you found that you’re not being given the respect you deserve in your position?

Perhaps occasionally nerves and self-doubt creep in, as you think: “Do I look out of place?” 

Meanwhile, you look at your clothes and you see very few that would show you in your best light at your next important work meeting.

If that sounds like you, then you may be looking to:

Carry yourself with complete credibility

Take your place at the table with quiet – or loud – confidence 

Build a wardrobe of outfits that sustain a state of competence and flow

That makes complete sense, because:

 When you wear looks that convey your distinctive essence, you enjoy the confidence of feeling fully congruent, inside and out.


It’s a little-known styling secret that style that is aligned with your true self is the style you carry best


This is also the style that removes constant moments of aggravation and annoyance caused by wearing clothes that would be better on someone else, instead keeping you in flow throughout the day so you can achieve your highest state of competence. 

Your Style Synergy Type clarifies the distinctive essence of your style

By taking this five minute quiz, you’ll discover: 

The name of your Style Synergy type – a punchy, memorable summary of your most credible, congruent style

The three key dimensions of your Style Synergy Type – Three phrases that articulate your style and define your most influential looks 

Five areas of style that convey your distinct essence – A list of five important areas to consider as you take the key dimensions and design your synergised style

You’ll receive a summary snapshot just like this one, which you may choose to save to your phone or computer

FAQ: What is the basis of the Style Synergy Types?

I’ve based the Style Synergy Types on one of the most well-researched and widely accepted personality frameworks called the Big Five, or ‘OCEAN’ model of psychological traits. The five traits are openness to experience, conscientiousness, extroversion, agreeableness and neuroticism. The quiz asks a few key questions about these traits, and how they tend to play out in our style choices.

I noticed after styling hundreds of women that there are clear connections between our personalities and style. When we align with these connections, our style feels fantastic to wear. Interestingly, this style is also the one that women consistently feel amazing wearing and carry better than any other.

The quiz methodology draws on you university studies in psychology and Honours-level studies in survey methodology.

FAQ: Is there anything other than style synergy that will help land my best personal style? 


Yes. Your Style Synergy Type is the basis of your style personality, and style personality is one of the three elements which create fabulous personal style that always looks great. The other two Style Essentials are your best colours and your body shape strategy. 

In styling sessions, we often personalise style personality much more than the insights through the quiz, but the quiz result gives you a fantastic clear perspective on where to start. 

FAQ: Will the quiz results include visuals of outfits I could wear?


I haven’t included visuals in the results. Style personality can be further defined and tailored, based on a woman’s lifestyle, taste and preferences. Brand-worthy personal style needs to align with each woman’s colours and body shape in addition to her style personality. I’m avoiding giving you misdirection and hoping instead that the key dimensions will be the help you need at this point.
