So, I really have not been in a constant need of finding all this kind of information out because I am pretty solid in what I like and what I don't. But, just as most things in life there are always things to be improved in all topics! This is much of how it was for me, just following along for the ride and learning things here and there, getting outfit ideas, and how knowing what 'color' you are can help so much in looking radiant!
So, I will begin with: My Color
My color is Warm Autumn; hence my eyes being brown, my hair being, honey
brown, and skin, ivory. After putting a 'color name' on yourself you are able
to then read down further in your category and find out what colors look the
best on those types of people! It may seem overwhelming, but it is so easy-
Next question was: What is your shape ?
My shape is some were between the 'pear' and 'hourglass' being slightly larger in
the hips than the ever so common hourglass figure has been explained to be. A
couple tips I learned for this type shape are as follows...
-Wear a belt about your waist.
-Wear high waisted skirts.
-Wear A-line skirts.
-Wear jackets that hit right above waist.
Lastly is: Your Style
My style is a cross between;The girly romantic; fluffy skirts, floral tops, and elegant bows.
Country western; boots, button ups, and dramatically solid.
Vintage/English Country; My personal vintage is more of an
antiquey look, a fresh battered jean skirt, calico tops, and
basic browns, more than wearing 40's and 50's dresses though
I do love them, it is just not what I own alot of- yet. :)
For my English Country this mostly comes out in the winter,
plaid wool skirts and my simple sweater collection.
As you can see I did mix all of my favorites- Girly/Romantic, The lace cardigan
My 'vintage', raggidness of the skirt and brown throughout
Counrty/Western, cowgirl boots and leather to tie back my hair.
SO this can be done without looking conglomerated! I think the best way to do this successfully is to do the 'finding your color' test so that you can know what colors best suit your 'color'! If you adore more than one main style and still have your basic colors that go with 'your color' then what better a way to mix those than by having clothes that coordinate!

Brown tights; Meijer clearance, $2.50
Slip, made by me
Light blue high waisted skirt; thrift store, $3.25
This skirt was slightly too short for my personal standards so I just seam ripped the hem open! Yay! I had
been looking for a shorter high waisted!

Lace cardigan; gift
No matter what your style is, let us always strive to honor God, not to mention your 'one and only'! Getting dressed can be fun (and is somewhat important) but, we need to make sure that we are not just putting on a front.That we are truly seeking God and His commands! We need to daily examine our hearts for pure thoughts and guidance from Him, helping to accomplish our every task while showing our faith to the world!
"Many woman do noble things but you surpass them all." Proverbs 31
