Dressing Your Truth Experiment Fun With The Four Types




I sometimes talk with people who claim that anybody can wear anything and look good. I disagree.

Faith, my daughter and I decided to test that theory, by each dressing in all four types of the Dressing Your Truth Program. We used clothes, makeup, and accessories that we already had and really did try to dress as much as we could in each of the four type styles, even if we didn't like it. 
We both wore the same color of makeup for each of the types.

We started with Type 1:


Faith had a light aqua t-shirt, white shorts, a multi colored striped belt, a bright orange zipper bracelet and gold circle earrings.
(It was harder for me to find a Type 1 outfit, as I have been trying to clean out my closet since I started DYT and living with less). My shirt had multi color circles, which I pared with a white sweater and gold circle earrings.
We puffed our hair on top to give it an upward motion and we completed the look with blue eye shadow, light pink lip stain and a bright pink blush (which we hated so much, we tossed afterward!)

Faith said she felt most silly in the Type 1 outfit. I felt very fat! I think it shows our facial blemishes as being more red/pink and spotty.

Next was Type 2:

  

Faith wore dark grey leggins, an aqua striped shirt, and a grey scarf tied as a belt. She left her hair hang natural. 
I wore a grey shirt with a light grey wrap. I used the curling iron on my hair (something I used to do every day). Makeup was very minimal - grey eye shadow, and pink lip stain.

Faith wears outfits like this almost everyday, so is quite comfortable as a Type 2. I felt old, tired, and fat..... not really anything good at all in it for me.

Welcome to Type 3:


Faith wore a deep red shirt, an animal print cardigan, a gold necklace and big earrings. She pulled her hair into an edgy pony tail. (note: She had on a necklace the matched her earrings, but it was just too big and over powering her - she didn't like it and took it off before the picture.)
I wore an aqua/teal and brown animal print shirt with an aqua layering tee under it. I wore a wooden necklace and earrings (purchased at the DYT online Type 3 store). I scrunched up my hair like I usually do. Makeup was deep rose blush, chestnut lip stain, and plum and bronze eye shadow.

Faith really liked the way she looked as a type 3. But, although I think she can pull it off, I think it's a bit too much on her. I have come to love myself as a type 3. I feel comfortable, and put together. 

Last, but not least, we were ready for Type 4:

  

Faith wore black slacks with a black shirt and a black and silver shrug she got in Nashville IN. She pulled her hair straight back into a pony tail and wore sliver earrings.
I wore a black, white, and red zebra stripped shirt with a black shrug and black shorts. I combed my hair down (a very type 4 straight hairstyle). I wore a silver chain necklace, and bracelet and silver leaf dangle earrings (the only other ones I could find that was silver).

Faith still loves black (I think it might be a 'cool' teenager thing), but her make up looks like she's a performer - ready to go on stage. I hated everything about the type 4 style. The makeup felt extremely heavy. The hair was awful. I felt depressed. I think I now know what Gothic feels like! It just didn't work at all for me! It felt like I was trying too hard to be someone I'm not.

Overall, it was a really fun experiment that I got to share with my daughter - we had some good laughs! Follow this link to browse the DYT online store!


I really think Faith looks good in most of the styles (maybe that's because she's 15 and beautiful), but I think she's most living true to her nature as a Type 2!!!


For myself, I was raised dressing and told to act as a T2, spent my early 20's dressing as a T1, my late 20's - early 30's as a T4 with a T2 hairstyle...., have found myself the last few years in my mid 30's as a T3 .... and I think I've finally found my true nature!
