Want to know whether you're drab, eye-catching or overdone?

Before you walk out the door, stand in front of a full-length mirror and give yourself one point for each accessory you're wearing:Earrings, any other piece of jewelry, scarf, flower, hat, gloves, bright nail enamel, major makeup, glasses or sunglasses, a stand-out belt, stand-out handbag, eye-catching stockings. Add one point for each pattern, stripe or major visible texture of your clothing and one point each for embroidery, shiny buttons, emblems, contrast braid or other trimming.

If you score five or less, you're making an understatement. Six to 10 has eye appeal, 11 or more means take some off.

The test is from ``The Complete Petite' by Jan Attwood and Mary Duffy (McGraw Hill, February 1990, $19.95).
