The Importance Of Defining Your Style
Defining your style type gives you a place to begin. It’s a way to uncover and come to grips with who you are, to determine what is appropriate and inappropriate to your personal style (and why), and to identify which exciting fashion direction or possibilities exist for you.
After working with thousands of women from coast to coast, we’ve found that everyone belongs to one or a combination of these five style types:
If you’re classic, you like simple, clean, and traditional pieces. You opt for a timeless look because the silhouette and colors rarely change. It’s always ladylike, classic, and often tailored.
Classic Style Type – Kate Winslet
Chic style is defined by a powerful look and sharp lines that seem to come together in an effortless way. It is often monochromatic and combined with bold accessories.
Chic Style Type – Angelina Jolie
Whimsical style is playful and appears to be “thrown together” but is actually a thoughtful combination of colors and patterns. If you’re whimsical, you’re usually young at heart and you’re look is ethereal and romantic.

This style is relaxed, lived-in, or funky, and incorporates offbeat accessories and usually lots of denim and suede. It’s a related look with an emphasis on natural fabrics and earth tones. This style evolved from the hippie look of the 1960s and the early 1970s.
