12 New Style "Types" To Know Now

For true followers of fashion, you rarely describe yourself as merely "preppy," "punk," or even "casual," and for good reason — you put way too much thought into clothes to warrant a one-word categorization. For most of us, our style encapsulates an amalgamation of inspirations, references, and aesthetic quirks that are far more nuanced than your traditional "style types."
