Mostly As: As a member of the "older, wiser, cooler" group, you emulate the habits of Twiggy or Joanna Lumley, buying classic pieces that will see you through the seasons.

Mostly Bs: As a "mission shopper", like Kerry Katona, you always make sure you know what you're shopping for before you leave the house and rarely make impulse buys.

Mostly Cs: You are a "trendspotter", a WAG at heart with shopping habits similar to Victoria Beckham and Alex Curran.

Mostly Ds: You like to put your own stamp on trends and tend to mix designer and high street clothes to create the look you want. You are an "urban aspirant", like Sarah Barnes, from Hollyoaks
