your new true style

In most teen fashion magazines, they provide a few styles with clothing that represent the title. For example, a "romantic" style would include a floral, flowy dress with some pale shoes and pastel accessories, while an "edgy" style would have some ripped jeans, a tank top with a faded union jack on it, and some combat boots.
Now, when I look these magazines, I always think to myself that none of those styles really encompass who I am. Fashion and style is suppose to reflect who you are as an individual, not just a style of clothing.
That is why I have decided to make up a few different styles that can truly portray a personality through clothing. Also, notice that all of these styles may apply to you, or maybe even none of them! (Hopefully not) Here are the styles I came up with. Have fun and figure out your style!
Urban Glamazon
This fierce fashionista isn't afraid of bold, bright colors and loves her high-tops, as well as her pumps. She tends to choose pieces that show she isn't afraid to try new things and step outside of her comfort zone. She's independent and pure fun.

Bad Ass Beauty
