About This Quiz

Inevitably, there are stereotypical ideas for how people should dress based on their age. In society, it is assumed that teens wear more scandalous clothing than the elderly, while middle-aged moms dress a bit more modestly than 22-year-olds fresh out of college. In many cases, these assumptions are true, but they don't have to be! 

Take Bella Swan from the Twilight series, for example. She's a young and beautiful high school girl who catches the eye of one of the most sought-after guys in her class, Edward Cullen. Stereotypically, you'd assume that Edward would go for someone popular who dresses in fashionable (and maybe even a little provocative) clothing, but Bella completely shatters that stereotype. In her oversized sweaters, loosely fitting jeans and combat boots, Bella has a style all her own. It's plain, simple and modest, though it does evolve a bit as time goes on. If she took this quiz, her style age might be closer to 50 years old than 17, her actual in the movie. 

So, are you a Bella Swan, dressing in a style that is older than you are? Or are you over the hill, dressing like you are still a preteen? Take this quiz to tell us about your style, and we'll guess which age it corresponds to!
