What’s Your Spring Style Archetype?

We do a version of this story every season because a) we know that shopping according to your style archetype will help you whittle down the options, keep your closet cohesive, and pass on the trend pieces that don’t feel authentically you; and b) it’s damn fun to write.

For this edition, we scouted the dresses, jewelry, and just-for-fun extras that’ll breathe new life into your winter-weary wardrobe.

Your Vibe: If The Row were a person.

The Palette: Nothing but neutrals.

Style Mantra: Understatement is underrated.

Spring Break Read: Time Is a Mother

You’re polished. Pared-back. Perfecting your capsule wardrobe was legitimately life-changing. You appreciate the mental clarity that comes with owning (and doing) less, and your personal choices reflect that. Go-to centerpiece? A single sculptural branch in an earthenware vessel. Preferred yoga pose? Savasana. This season, in your opinion, is for strappy sandals and elevated, skin-baring basics—in the same restrained palette you lean on year-round. You are the minimalist: Simplicity is your superpower.

Spring Break Read: Other People’s Clothes

You believe that life’s too short to be boring.
You love a big skirt, elaborate floral
arrangements, and sipping espresso out
of hand-painted porcelain—because why not? Confident and carefree, you think that fashion, like everything in life, should be fun. Bright colors make you happy. You’ve never met a motif you didn’t love. You wear what you want, when you want, slipping on whichever splashy sundress or psychedelic set speaks to you each morning. Spring is your thing: It’s when you can finally peel off the puffer coat and start honoring your truest, most exuberant self again.

Spring Break Read: The Vacationers

You’re probably an East Coaster. Grew up spending summers on the Cape. Rumor has it you dated a Kennedy—not that you’d ever kiss and tell. Back then, you had a thing for lax players and racket sports—and the latter is still true. You’re the reigning queen of the pickleball court and have convinced many in your (very large) social circle to pick up the sport, too. Stylewise, you’ve mastered the art of mixing the traditional with the modern, wearing your grandmother’s St. John jackets with denim and your pearls with gold pasties. You’re a dyed-in-the-wool prepster—and proud of it.

Spring Break Read: The Ensemble

You have a convertible, a SoHo House membership (the Little Beach House is your home away from home), and a rescue mutt named Luna that you adopted from the Labelle Foundation. In other words, you’re a bona fide LA lady. For you, doing a Melissa Wood Health workout in a matching set is a form of meditation—which you studied, briefly, at a yoga studio up in Topanga Canyon. Favorite new brunch spot?
Belles Beach House. Proudest
accomplishment? Being on a first-name
basis with the Erewhon baristas. Everything in your closet is cute and casual—two words that, not coincidentally, also describe you.
