for Alaina

Alaina had a style consult and a follow up polyvore. We determined she is dominant Romantic, with some Gamine and Ingenue.  She is possibly a Light Summer.

 "bold romantic" - you have a sensitive spirit, as well as a bold side; you may protect your sensitive side too much, you will for for anyone, but fight for yourself too; follow Romantic guidelines, but add in bold, contrasting colors and fun animated patterns "

 (like Theatrical Romantic) yin inner lines with balanced outer lines (slight yang) - you may be a young woman in transition to becoming Romantic, or you are shorter or have a young heart; if you have a youthful petite figure, follow the ingenue guidelines, if you have a more full figure, follow more of the romantic guidelines"


When you take the McJimsey style quiz, the recommendations you get divide into two categories, the inner and outer design lines. 

Outer design lines are determined by your physical silhouette, thus coordinating with clothing silhouettes that are the most flattering.  This refers to the shapes of your garments because they need to fit your body.

Your inner design lines are determined by the size and characteristics of your facial features and hair, etc.  Thus you will wear accessories that repeat your physical geometry.  So your dominant type might determine your outer lines and your secondary your inner lines, or vice versa.

Alaina's Outer Lines are mainly Romantic (with a little Gamine), which means she should choose Romantic silhouettes for clothing lines:

go a little more youthful
you can add more pattern 

you may be able to do a bit more structure

don't wear black

choose shorter lengths

choose shorter lengths

don't wear black

Her Inner Lines are also predominantly Romantic (with Gamine as well as Ingenue) which relates to accessories:
