The Classic Style Personality always personifies simple elegance. This woman collects basic, timeless pieces, which she mixes and matches. Trendy shapes and bright prints are never on her shopping list. She may not shop that much, yet she can always put together an appropriate look for any occasion. She invests in key pieces of high quality so that they last for a long time, and she wears them in a variety of ways. You may find variations of Chanel inspired flats, sleek loafers, and a similar style of sandals in her closet throughout her life. A fitted navy blazer and a comfortable pair of straight leg jeans with a white silk blouse will be a go-to look for her.
Her wardrobe colors will include mostly neutrals such as navy, white, gray, khaki, olive, brown, or black, depending on her warm or cool skin tone.
Memorable show-stopping outfits are not her thing. While she always appears neat and well put together, there is rarely any part of her look that stands out. Tailored classics in the best quality she can afford fill her wardrobe. She always appears neat and well-groomed. She accents her combinations with a few well-chosen understated accessories. Sunglasses, scarves, and high-quality handbags are often part of her look.
Hair and makeup are always natural-looking and may not change that much over time. For example, the Classic Style Personality may wear the same bob in varying lengths for most of her life. She is unimpressed by changing trends and sticks to what she knows works well with her shape and lifestyle.
I hope that you have enjoyed this project. You may see now that we can combine any of these style personalities, including bombshell, sporty, and or casual, on any given day. Understanding the attitude of particular looks may help you put together combinations of items that are appropriate reflections of your style and work well together. As always, I am sharing my photos to help you understand basic design principles. I am not a professional stylist, but I do enjoy sharing with you what I learn.
In these photos, I am wearing a Portofino black polyester (silk-like) blouse from Express last year over white girlfriend style jeans from Chico’s. The sandals are a black, white, and silver reptile texture by Vince Camuto last year. The little black straw bag with chain detail was a bargain I picked up on the T.J.Maxx clearance rack at T.J.Maxx this week.
