    Good point! The system originally was for women, Kibbe only expanded later. For men the height limits are different because their overall altitude is. It's all moved up higher significantly. Like for South East Asian people, all the limits have to be lowered because they aren't as tall on average, same principle. For you it's completely possible to be TR at 5'11, especially because it's a subcategory. "Theatrical" gives a lot of Dramatic height after all, elongating the Romantic lines.

    What I consider when typing is what is the person's base type out of the five main ones is. The subcategory is just an addition. Looking at you it's prominent that you have more of Romantic's luscious curve than Dramatic's edges and thinness in a first impression. The second impression is that you're somewhat rectangular, that's where Theatrical as the addition comes in.

    Rob Lowe is a Theatrical Romantic, he has an uncanny resemblance to the general softness of your face look at that, with some slight sharpness added in the brows, chin, lip:



    And: Rob is 5'11. Boom. You better go out there and snatch some wigs, Lowe Junior.

    Just to make sure: The other type I consider for you is Soft Dramatic if the 5'11 really trumps everything else.
    It's just swapped around here. I.e., first impression of you is the height, second is the roundedness of features. You can go by what people typically notice you as. Wow, he's a lanky tower and striking (Dramatic main type)! Or, wow, he's really sultry and sexy (Romantic main type). People usually pick up the Kibbe type in their own words, it really helps.

    If you want to go the extra mile just try out the respective clothes, that'll be fun. Theatrical Romantic has much more ornament: ruffles, dots, any small rounded detail. It would ridiculous on any other type, but Theatrical Romantic pulls it off. I call it the Romeo style. Soft Dramatic is extra bold and has less delicacy, much more asymmetry - always good with drapes and cowls at the chest area. That would be the greek god style.

    Adam Driver is a Soft Dramatic. It really comes out how much more sharp edges he has, unlike with Rob Lowe you instantly notice: damn! He's huge! The nose, the brows, it all screams strict geometry. With Rob the first impression is how voluptuous the lines are. He's a heartthrob. Soft Dramatic has a majestic T silhouette, and highly irregular features instead, creating the impression of regalness:



    He carries the draping at the neck soooo well. Soft Dramatic can don the supervillan chic, always. Of course he blew up in TFA and people praised him for his looks, the movie stylist did everything right.
    Theatrical Romantic - and you can try this out and instantly see how it overpowers or underwhelms you or not - looks best with small-scale patterns and curves. Even just a rounded neckline works wonders with Rob, has a good fit in general:



    And here, he even makes cringe fashion and an odd color work - note how we still keep the Theatrical element with the suit's sharp edges. Just the shirt below (that's Dramatic Classic type) doesn't blend in:



    Gorgeous. He still looks like he can raise hell. Give Adam something small/rounded and it's completely at odds. It doesn't do him justice. He's diminished by the small curved lines while his body is extremely striking and begs to slice haters in half with all that sharpness:



    Rob makes even the weirdest, tiny retro knit look charismatic, it looks harmonious:



    That way, you can experiment. Maybe you already know what type of clothing works best, that'll settle it already Look for pieces that were complimented by others, either the color is best with your complexion or the Kibbe lines are on point. Much love, and thanks for bearing with me there

    My type is likely Soft Dramatic. My entire frame is extremely slim and large, no muscles, no significant fat either except for the hip area. Legs, arms, hands, feet, neck, face, all elongated and 100% anorexic-seeming no matter how much I eat, never got why. It also shows in the brows (after I grew them out!) and prominent nose.

    But then, confusingly I thought, my features have Yin's cuteness. Big eyes, chin, the lips too, also my waist can be cinched without a problem. I thought of Flamboyant Gamine and Dramatic Classic for balanced features or the big eyes explanation, but I'm too tall, noticeably so as Pole already pointed out. Last time I went shopping I put on a double-breasted DC trench, all straight lines, that looked so weird.

    I also can't qualify for FG because my head seems proportionately smaller than my body, and tomboy chic is lost on me. I recently found a family picture that I already posted in the unofficial member thread, where I have the Soft Dramatic drape and the big curly hair. Except the very tragic makeup, that shit works. It doesn't feel too much, just right. Kibbe says go big with SD for diva charm, I can do it.




    Dad is likely a Natural, Mom a Romantic of some sort. They're not in their seasonal colors but their lines make sense here. I look like a large stick figure next to them, the Yang is too muchhhhh

    This is super informative! Thank you! I see exactly what you mean now - and I believe your guess was right. Theatrical romantic seems quite fitting.

    Iím very well known to love wearing tank tops like the one pictured above when itís warmer and people tell me I pull it off. I also have a swearer similar to the one in the last pic. I could very well picture myself doing (and enjoying) a ďRomeoĒ style. This post is really just pushing me to go clothes shopping again.

    Update: I also have no idea what my palette should be. I know I have a warmer undertone to my skin if that helps.

    Kibbe is outdated and lacks important types, namely Ethereal and Ingenue.

    I could never find myself fitting into a proper Kibbe type because two thirds of my Style Identity are actually Ethereal and Ingenue!

    My full Style ID is Ethereal-Dramatic-Ingenue. (Order doesn't matter here.)

    I used to mistype my Ingenue side as Romantic.
    Both are feminine, but whereas Romantic beauty is sexy and sultry, Ingenue beauty is cute and youthful, which fits me better.

    Soft Autumn Deep (aka Toned Autumn)

    You are a toned autumn if your eyes are deep brown. Your hair may be a rich earthy blonde or golden brown. Your eyes are earthy and deep. You may be mistaken at times for a deep autumn, but you are not as deep as that. Your overall coloring is soft, deep and golden.

    The deeper and muted colors of the original soft autumn color palette became the Toned Autumn color palette. They are designed to complement the “soft and deep” autumn.
    Here's your palette.

    Also, when it comes to your Style ID: Face > Body.

    Sure, your body may give some clues about your type, but it is ultimately your face that decides it.

    Glad it helped Yes. If you wanna go for more glamorous Romeo style I think buying something like that might fit really well:

    Special occasions:










    Daily life, I selected something similar to what you usually like to wear:





    (except the V-neckline of course)



    ^this is so you. My god. Make sure to bring out your curly hair as well, it picks up the rounded lines as well that's why

    So you can do both, edgy and "prince-like". You can get If you're clueless what to select in the store, think of Orlando Bloom, Johnny Depp, and Michael Jackson and everything they could pull off, they're also Theatrical Romantics. You can never throw enough intricate jewelry on them so if you have a lot of bracelets or necklaces, go all out. I remember I noticed your Ankh immediately, likely because it is perfect for your style.



    (The hair needs more curl everything else is on point)





    ^everything is flowing. Theatrical romantic + waterfall-like fabric looks just right while other types could never xD



    Everything where fabric is gathered together is good like in the winter jacket^



    The beige shirt I'm guessing would look awesome on you as well. Your only guideline literally is: small ornaments to make you look like you just walked out of Shakespeare's play.

    Whatever silk scarf with a lot of detailed print on it you have, you can dust it off and combine it. At the neck, belt, your bag, as a bandana, everything. Go crazy

    I need some things that I want in my life now. I own so much but I have even more to lose. Big house, supercar, money, honor. Yeah... a superstar
    Art fills the walls in my room, my house is a gallery. Feel free to visit comfortably anytime. Iím just living like I used to
    Like my childhood wish, like the people on TV. Iím living it up but Iím still sad and lonely. A corner of my heart is empty. I need somebody, I ain't got nobody
    Petrus, Latour, Margaux, Conti, Jayer. I obsess over 1988 vintage, but (I need some) friends who are the same age as me. Instead I pour my own glass and drink by myself

    @Olimpia not so fast, he has to learn it himself Otherwise he'll have a hard time selecting his colors on his own.
    If you have enough respective colors at home you can take this quiz here trying to put on different colors, best done not in direct sunlight. Draping is usually good at a professional's office for actual color analysis but with a good eye you can come close. With the help of a friend, two more eyes can really make a difference. Select the colors that you think really make you look glowing, healthy, put together, the color blends in, balances any skin flaws. Warm undertone already helps, but keep your options open since the palettes might be a mix of warm and cool, or even neutral.


    Look if you can wear colors that are...

    Saturated, clear, aka bright | Light, pastel, slightly toned | Dark, deep, contrasting | Dusty, soft, muted | Warm, red/orange-based | Cool, blue-based.

    If you compile all the colors that look good on you, the pattern will become clear. If for instance, you find that black and dark purples are best on you while bright and primarily cool colors don't work, then you go with the "Dark" category. From there you can only be Dark Winter, or maybe Dark Autumn though not if pure white really works well.



    You can try to edit the palette you get next to your face in natural light, see if it looks good. I did it with my Light Spring palette and it is perfect. The colors that I wear best are all light & pastel.

    Sure, your body may give some clues about your type, but it is ultimately your face that decides it.
    I'm careful with this, and I know Truth is Beauty's criticism. She sees a lot of Ethereals and Angelics and whatnot while they are all in the D or SD category. She has a schtick of thinking female Dramatics must be entirely macho-masculine while Romantics are sexually objectified women, and leaves out that you can use the typology for men . She admitted it herself that she takes the opposite ends of the spectrum too literally as masculine and feminine. So people had to come up with new terms to escape that fallacy. We already have 13 types that can cover all essences. If you learn them properly you don't need something new that you can't explain yet when you didn't entirely see through Kibbe's line constructions and how much room there is. No need for three more main types or triple-subtypes. It's good to know how your percentage of straight vs curved lines is, you can work with that instead and usually fall into the 13 types already.

    Ingenue usually indicates a lot of Yin tiny curved line and will do well as Theatrical Romantic, Soft Classic, or Soft Gamine. Kibbe doesn't lack Ingenue, he eliminated it with good reason at the beginning of his writing process and has three varieties of Gamine to make up for it. It's sort of a pedophilic idea as well since Ingenue is described as a "woman like a child, a Lolita". So I'm glad Kibbe wasn't stupid enough to take it into his system. Again, we have Gamine as a category that meets the criteria we need. Ingenue is redundant, Gamine is already youthful and has many different representatives. And either way, if you identify as Ingenue because it's youthful, wait 5 years. Kibbe is for adults. I myself am still changing. I think again Ingenue was used to just type younger women that aren't fully in their base category yet How old were Kibbe's prime examples when he put them in his book? All around 30 and even 40.

    Dressing for your face and the lines that are present there because that's where people look is all well and good. But you have to pick up the lines from your body where they are supposed to be. Like Gamine won't do well with an accentuated waist that shows the curved line just because the face is rounded and that dictates the entire look. Gamine's body is straight while their head is 180į from it. That's why Kibbe says Gamine combines opposites, just like Natural melts the opposites. Some types can dress consistently according to the facial geometry, but others don't so you need mix and match.

    What mirrors the geometry of the face should be at the neck area, and the overall frame is dressed separately. Like I did for @Without Warning - I recommended him suits, crisp jackets etc because he's got a tall frame, it covers the Theatrical element. It will also FIT. The Romantic element is at the face with patterns and jewelry, complementing the roundedness of the facial features. If we put ruffles all over him and tinier clothings as Romantic suggests, it wouldn't work. That's why combining two types is so important, we can't say he's entirely Dramatic, we can't say he's entirely Romantic, so we put it together for TR and not something new. That also ties into the argument about percentage I made in the first paragraph.

    An addendum I wanted to make but I was too lazy at first, I finally managed to edit myself into my palette (Light Spring) All pastels.



    The watermelon and red are almost dangerously in the bright palette but it's still working. As accent colors, that's ok. All the other colors blend in fine, I look nice. Pinks and corals are my forte in particular, just like the greens.

    Light Spring has warm and cool tones because the skin tone's neutral base, the opposite palette is Dark. So I edited in black just for fun. It sticks out like a sore thumb, my level of overall contrast is that low. The Winter palette is my enemy



    I also applied the Light Summer colors which would be the other choice if the main palette is light. But meh. Look at that. It's not harmonious, some colors are off or just boring on me. As usual I carry the pinks but when it's already getting purple, please no, it's not good at all. My lips and left half of the face look different, eyes are not sparkly as usual The greys dull and flatten me out, it's all too cool and muddy. I also found myself looking at the colors first instead of the complexion, that's the sign that Light Summer is not for me.

    I need some things that I want in my life now. I own so much but I have even more to lose. Big house, supercar, money, honor. Yeah... a superstar
    Art fills the walls in my room, my house is a gallery. Feel free to visit comfortably anytime. Iím just living like I used to
    Like my childhood wish, like the people on TV. Iím living it up but Iím still sad and lonely. A corner of my heart is empty. I need somebody, I ain't got nobody
    Petrus, Latour, Margaux, Conti, Jayer. I obsess over 1988 vintage, but (I need some) friends who are the same age as me. Instead I pour my own glass and drink by myself
    I'm tired. Today, tomorrow, every day is filled with work. But if there wasn't anything tomorrow it'd be strange. Hello? Is there anyone there?

    In short, it's categorizing people according to their body's geometric lines which are either small+curved or large+straight, usually present in a mix.
    The proportions between these two determine which one of the 13 possible types you are.

    According to that, you can also know what clothing type you wear best because it picks up your geometric predisposition. The benefit is that they will be both comfortable clothes since they're fitted to your shape plus good-looking since everything is in harmony.

    For instance, a person with predominantly striking straight lines describing their body wears tailored, crisp suits flawlessly. Think Tilda Swinton or Tom Hiddleston. Curved lines dominant can make you wear intricate, small rounded patterns and shapes very well. Think Marilyn Monroe or Elvis.

    The 5 main types are:


    • Dramatic - most straight, long sharp lines, person is thus considerably tall. Base shape is the rectangle.
    • Natural - more straight than curved. Base shape is the rectangle with blunt edges. Body type can be muscular.
    • Classic - lines are in balance, very symmetrical features. Base shape is the oval.
    • Gamine - extremes of both lines, like straight body + curved lines present in the face, more petite in height. Base shape is the diamond.
    • Romantic - most curved lines, overall roundedness. One of the smaller types. Base shape is the circle.


    The subcategories add influence from another type. "Soft" adds a Romantic element, "Theatrical" and "Flamboyant" add a Dramatic element.

    Since I don't know your heights I might be off, but some people on here are clear-cut by the face alone:

    @Muddy Dramatic Type (!)
    @FDG Flamboyant Natural Type
    @aster Romantic Type
    @Owl (Soft?) Gamine Type (!)
    @Pink Romantic Type (!)
    @ashlesha Soft Natural Type
    @Without Warning Theatrical Romantic Type (!)
    @The Exception (Soft?) Natural Type
    @Park Gamine Type (!)
    @applejacks Soft Natural Type
    @thehotelambush Soft Gamine Type
    @Anglas Flamboyant Natural Type
    @Pole Soft Natural Type
    @woofwoofl Soft Dramatic Type
    @Olimpia Theatrical Romantic or Soft Classic Type
    @Viktor is probably Flamboyant Natural, the height of a Dramatic and the built of a Natural type.

    FN is the type that can go the tallest and most massive. Princess Diana, Gigi Hadid, and Hugh Jackman are good examples. Jason Momoa also has that type and he knows which lines suit him the best. Like I wrote about Adam Driver as Soft Dramatic type above, you can also go as large as possible here, and also extremely broad. Viktor's base type still is Natural so broadness is key, I bet it looks good on him. You add the elongated line of Dramatic to Natural's width and there you go:



    He could wear something even more unconstructed, more ruffled hair, but the shoulder emphasis is good. He looks very confident and happy in it, too



    (The colors here are also in harmony with his complexion, amazing) Flamboyant Natural can pull off the biggest long mane ever. See Chris Hemsworth, same type, same style.




    The hat is too rounded for his shape or maybe a bit too small, the rest is all on point. The jacket he has underneath may be too symmetrical but the wild fur coat covers it up. Shoes are perfect.

    Flamboyant Natural is described as the "Free Spirit Chic". Materials are all bulky, mix-and-matched, loosely woven, everything is oversized.
