This fact is what inspired graphic artist Emily Armstrong for her first project for StyleCaster Creators. She took a look at five prominent female archetypes in New York: The Socialite, The Feminist, The Blogger, The Hipster, and The Basic. She broke each one down into a series of captivating and cheeky mind maps which you’re about to see.

Hundreds of words, dozens of pens and markers later, we have a beautiful and funny series where you can discover (and poke fun at) the type of woman you are—wherever you live.
