    Default Enneagram Fashion Style & YOU

    What is your personal style and how might you relate that to your type?

    Do you think your enneagram type (including wing & instinctual stack!) influences your personal style of dress/grooming?

    Do you think your MBTI type plays any role also?

    Below is a page concerning enneagram type fashion styles. It's obviously a generalization, but I found it pretty decent when comparing it to people I know and their type.

    Focus on the idea of how they are described as approaching dress/grooming over literal styles (as culture and location and job, etc, can influence this also). For instance, instead of taking "nerdy" too literally for the 5, see it as meaning there can be a bit of disinterest or obliviousness to appropriateness or attractiveness.

    http://notwhollyinvain.blogspot.com/...ion-style.html

    Here's the very brief run-down for each:

    1 - classic, simple, refined, geometric lines, minimalist, modest

    2 - romantic and strong, bold but soft, cute, accessorized, draws affection

    3 - professional, well-tailored, american sportswear, attention-grabbing, preppy

    4 - unique, vintage, edgy, often weird and random, trendy, clashing, raw

    5 - nerdy, unnoticeable, comfortable, functional, bland but odd

    6 - earthy, coordinating, stylish without being overdone, complementing

    7 - cheery, bright colors from nature, outdoorsy, fun, flirty

    8 - confident, stark, bold, well-constructed, precisely fitting, durable

    9 - relaxed, repetitive, elements from nature, harmonious, bohemian

    Didn't read through the extended descriptions because I'm off to class soon but initial impressions based on the pictures alone:
    1. None of those clothes seem substantially different in style from enneagram to enneagram. The main differences appear to lie in colour and accessorizing.
    2. I looked at the mirror to check what I was wearing ... and yeah, tatty blue jeans and a mostly nondescript blue t-shirt complete with nerdy inside joke. Hahaha. e5 represent!

    And finally ... I like the 1 aesthetic (based on your summary at least) but somehow manage to end up making them look untidy on me. Must be the sheer force of my personality.

    I also have a habit of picking up cute, slightly eccentric clothes, getting shy after I put them on, and covering them up with a totally drab sweater, so 5w4/4w5 seems to cover that, I guess.

    Sounds about right and yes, here and there I have a love for the colour red, sometimes flirty clothing, and some neutrals.

    The ones most like me (in order from most like me to least like me) are 5, 1, 9, and 7.

    Great stuff!
    Fives, if they are not super integrated, will tend to be creatures of habit and wear the same two pieces of clothing like every other day … because a Five can't be concerned with such "lesser" things like fashion or style. They have other things to worry about, thank you. For many Fives, they just don't care, and it shows.



    I used to wear a fancy watch that got me more compliments than I'd be comfortable with...also it was analog. More charming, less functional. I ended up giving it to my 6w7 brother and now I'm pretty happy with my sport watch that doesn't call much unwanted attention. If people wanna compliment something they'd rather compliment me, not the stuff I'm wearing.

    Type 5 with the stripey shirts, jeans, functional outfits, button-down tops, peacoat... yep... this looks like my closet.

    Type 1 looks like a couple things I'd wear too, bits of 6 as well.

    Ha that was pretty tough. From glancing at my closet just now, I can see strong elements from 5 and 4 and (pretty strong) hints of 3 and 8.
