There is another out of print set of books that also has a four type system:
Jane Segerstrom's Look Like Yourself and Lo...  c) 1980
Style Strategy: Winning the Appearance Game  c) 1988


 




  • dark haired, dark eyed, with dramatic enthusiasm
  • square shouldered, straight forward, with a no-nonsense attitude
  • medium contrast, sports enthusiasts who adore the outdoors
  • classic, cool with a tinge of royalty in their outlook and bearing
  • small, fair, quiet, possible pixies or innocents




Type 2
  • tall, slightly angular, dark haired and dark eyed with pale, elongated faces, with high contrast indicates a need for colors with depth and even a measure of brightness
  • more classic featured and average height, poised and gracious, almost regal... patricians, they choose highly refined, luxurious fabrics, graceful lines and colors which flow together, always a cultured look
  • sturdier somewhat athletic build, naturally casual, they wear less formal clothing, but their selections are simple, well-cut designs of genuine worth, brown suede instead of burgundy velvet
  • romantic epitomizes those with eyes which are large and warm, lips curving... the southern belle, willowy and graceful, red is often their favorite color and luxurious fabrics their clothing forte
  • smallest and fairest, with youthful faces, lighter skin and hair, more delicate bone structure and alice-in-wonderland eyes, humor and dash is check by gentleness, their wardrobes hold spirited touches, the new or quaintly picturesque
 

  • tall, dark and handsome, angular and fascinating
  • equally tall, but with finer skin and fewer angles, more polished regal appearance, their clothing selected from high fashion or classic lines, always exhibits and unusual touch (ornate medallion? turban?)
  • sturdy, broad shouldered, relaxed, with lighter complexions and more casual attitudes, either strong, bright colors or earthtones, well cut tweed suits, coats or jackets
  • highly decorative, long lashes, a straight nose and rich coloring, sensuous beauty, garment choices of slinky fabrics in low-cut styles
  • smallest, twinkly eyed and decidedly spicy manner and colors, what happy gypsies!
     Type 4 
  • tall and slender with aristocratic noses and some angularity of face, formal, sophisticated, aloof, don't need approval, high fashion is their forte as are extremes in line, contrast, silhouette and accessory, nothing soft or indecisive here
  • less dramatic and having a different beauty, apparent gradates of a finishing school, smoother skin, light eyes (perhaps blue) and oval faces, elegant, beautiful fabrics in well-designed styles, understated classics which appear expensive and can be worn for years
  • wider and squaqer, less delicate and refined, more approachable and natural, most comfortable in elegantly casual styles
  • soft, more rounded form, long lashed eyes, even features and graceful movements, faces, figures and coloring are highly decorative, so this type especially must keep clothing simple
  • smallest, like ballet dancers, small boned, trim and compact, as potential for drama lowers, costumes simplify and contrast lessons


but don't listen to me, EXPRESS YOUR TRUTH! Jane
