This is an excellent tool if you already know what looks good on you, but you don't know how that translates into a coherent Style ID.
It's also great for analyzing friends, family, and celebs.
To use it, you'll need internet access and a PC with Microsoft Excel.
The Style ID Calculator was fantastic! Turns out I'm a Natural-Ingénue-Classic. - R.G.

Yesterday I went on a spontaneous shopping trip. I had my style identity in my head and grasped the exactly right pieces as fast as never before. It was awesome! The knowledge I learned from here made me feel like a pro! :D

I would like to say that as someone who tested this excellent tool it works best, like the color analyzer tool, if you get the input of objective others about what looks best on you. Frequently what looks best on us and what we like are not the same thing.

Thanks for this, Rachel. My daughter used it to analyze me and I am so pleased to have some style confirmation. Would love to see more and more of your style pins. Thanks again!

It is so exciting to have this available. Image consultants charge hundreds of dollars. With Rachel's color tools and now this style guide, we can all figure out a total look for ourselves with an objective friend or so. I don't believe that there are any image or color tools that we can use by ourselves because we can't see ourselves with total objectivity. Moreover, I think using good tools and objective friends yields a more accurate result than working with an image expert because our friends see us in a variety of clothing and in different situations.

So bummed that this isn't available for MAC users. Please let me know if that changes, as I would love to buy this tool.
I was able to view the tool by downloading OpenOffice for mac. It is a free package very similar to MSOffice. Here's the link: http://www.openoffice.org/download/

This is a free software with a really good reputation. I've used it for years. Now I know I'm a Dramatic/Natural! Wouldn't want to be anything else!!!

Wow, I'm sorry, the above comment is mine, I tried to put the comment in the name field!!!

The second version doesn't work for me, I put 3 points on the boards: dramatic natural, dramatic-natural-gamine, ethereal dramatic, ethereal and the result I get: ingenue, romantic, classic. Completely the opposite of me :/ and I put -2 on the ingenue. First version was better because told me te truth - ethereal, dramatic, natural.

Hi, Jo. This was a problem some people found in the 2nd beta version. The version that's actually for sale no longer has this problem. :-)

OK :) Rachel, I wish you add some more info -clues about characteristic of specific style, an info about type of fabric or patterns defined not only by pictures, for instance - if someone looks awful in plaid fabric - does it mean he might be ethereal?.... just like you did with colour types: if you look good in bright blue you are TSp. :)

Will we still be able to ask you for an analysis? I think I've already ascertained I absolutely cannot judge myself: I'm a dark autumn, and I had come close to think myself some sort of summer X'D

Could you do it with a trusted friend?

You may be thinking of some Artemis images I had on a Pinterest board?

I hope I get a chance to provide this kind of info soon!

Ive been 'diagnosed' as a natural ingénue with some romantic...do you have any idea what I should be wearing please?

How do I use the style calculator? It didn't come with instructions, and I don't want to do it wrong.
7/7/2017 11:22:06 am
Hi, Madeleine! The first few pages of the spreadsheet are instructions. Can you email me so I can help you?

So I have gone through the Style Calculator and it told me something I have inwardly suspected all along - I actually lead with Ingenue! Very closely followed by Ethereal, with Romantic/Classic tied for third, then Dramatic, and lastly Natural (very heavy for me, and a lot like the types of clothes I have used to hide in!), and Gamine (very little connection at all, unless mixed with my primary Ingenue). But this explains why I never really found myself in Kibbe, because his system omitted my two primary essences. Soft Classic was as close as I was able to get, but it was still missing something - the Ethereal.
