Style Archetype: Eclectic

I recently shared the details about the Classic Style Archetype but today is all about another fun style archetype: the ‘Eclectic’ style!

According to Merriam-Webster, here’s the definition of:

 eclectic | e-ˈklek-tik

1 :  selecting what appears to be best in various doctrines, methods, or styles

2 :  composed of elements drawn from various sources

More Info about the Eclectic Style Archetype

Pulling various style elements, patterns, textures, and looks from different sources into one look is what embodies a true eclectic style.  It’s like a mix of vintage and raiding your Grandma’s closet! ?  Some well-known style icons that live by this look include Helena Bonham Carter, Katy Perry, FKA Twigs, and of course Sarah Jessica Parker who’s best known for her eclectic looks on Sex and the City.  Designers and fashion houses that fall into this niche are Betsey Johnson, Vivienne Westwood, Dries Van Noten, and Alexander McQueen.

Here’s a mood board of images that reflect the ‘Eclectic’ Style Archetype.  Does this represent your style?  Feel free to comment below!
