Are you a classic beauty? A dramatic diva? Or perhaps sporty chic? How we dress gives viewers a hint (or in some cases a full statement) of our personality. So what's your style profile? Most women are a combination of a several, but there are a few dominant traits in every woman that makes her distinct. Check out the below profiles and connect with your inner style goddess.
Classic. Classic women have timeless looks that never go out of style. They prefer to dress in silhouettes that create a clean, smooth line. Being the antithesis of trendy, they pick up 'fashions of the moment' in the details of the accessories.
Dramatic. Dramatic women prefer vivid colours and patterns that catch the eye. They love to dress in cuts and silhouettes that flatter the figure for a striking appearance. Creativity is their anthem and is reflected in their makeup and hair styles.
Elegant. Elegant women enjoy creating looks that are polished and classic. Quality fabrics and clean lines play a key role in their style choice. Subtle ruffles and feminine details can be found in their wardrobe, but nothing too extravagant or over the top.
Natural. For the natural woman, comfort reigns supreme when selecting clothing. Fabrics that move freely with the body, in carefree colours and earthy prints give a bohemian air to her look. Simple hair and makeup characterise her, highlighting her natural beauty.
Romantic.. Romantic women create looks that are soft and feminine. Satins, lace, and flirty trims are sprinkled throughout their wardrobe. Soft makeup and pastel colours contribute to their ambiance of romance and love.
Sporty Chic. Smart trainers, cropped trousers, and vintage tees. Whether dressed up or down, sporty women prove that it is possible to dress comfortably and still look great. Simple hairstyles, whether cropped or pulled back compliment their look and makeup is usually minimal.
``How we dress sends a message about who we are, or at least how we want the world to perceive us. ... So as you face your wardrobe and prepare to dress for the day, project yourself onto a billboard in a City Shopping Centre.. How will people respond to that image of you and what assumptions will they make about who you are’. Take this as a wake-up call for people who never think about what they are wearing.
And always remember Italian Actress Sophia Loren's words: ``nothing makes a woman more beautiful than the belief that she is beautiful.''
