About This Quiz

"Alexander McQueen, Prada, Gucci, Chanel..." Before you feel your wallet start to get lighter with these fashion brands, we want to know if you're a fashion expert! While you might love fashion, only a true fashionista could ace this quiz. Can you handle it?

The fashion world has a history that traces back decades. You'll also find that fashion trends work in a circle. One of the oldest trends came through the Baroque period; a time marked by complex patterns and stunning embroidery. The style has since cycled its way back to the runway and into clothing stores.

A similar concept could be said of the '90s. With the popular crop tops and high waist jeans of the decade, the mid-2010s brought about the return of the style. While the trends are making the statement, who could forget about the brands and stores that are selling them?

You won't find a fashion expert who doesn't recognize the high-end brands of Versace, Louis Vuitton, and Dolce & Gabbana. Stores like Zara and H&M are a staple for the perfect mix of high end and affordable. Who could look past the massive rise of the online clothing store, Fashion Nova?

With hundreds of trends floating around and thousands of brands and stores to shop at, do you have what it takes to make a fashion statement with this quiz? Or will you be on the list of the worst dressed?

Let's find out!
