Loafers) and Elegant (think Chanel-style suit) style are variations of this fashion persona. Classic style also overlaps with Dramatic and Natural. Style Tips for a Classic Clothing PersonalityShow off your Style With (closet essentials):Oversized sunglasses, Breton navy-striped tops, blazers, knee high riding boots, ballet flats, pearl necklace and bracelet, pearl stud earrings, white dress shirt, tailored city shorts, plaid shirt, v-neck sweaters, shift dress, tote handbag, classic gold or silver jewelry. How to to Improve Your Style/Word of Warning:Women with a Classic clothing personality tend to dress a bit safe and can look plain. It becomes rather predictable and boring (or very basic if you will). Try stretching your comfort zone by selecting your essentials in a different color than a neutral - for example, if you're into ballet flats see if you can try a new pair with in a bold color; or look for flats with gold metal hardware. Assess your coloring and experiment with your best colors (that are not neutrals :P ). Improve your outfit and implement an interesting twist that reflects a fun or casual aspect of your personal style. An example is to add some interesting touches with for example a scarf in an eye-popping color or an accessory with a trendy detailing (ie. strappy platform sandals or a studded clutch purse). Or combine Classic pieces with your other fashion personas. For example, if you're a little bit of Dramatic define that with a bold statement necklace or a pair of fierce stiletto pumps.

Dressing a Figure Eight:Soft drapable fabrics such as knit and jersey are key to working with your cuves. Wrap dresses are great especially those with a straight or tapered skirt.Sharp tailoring such as the little jacket in the 2nd outfit are great for giving definition to curve. Peplum on jacket is especially great for a figure of 8 as it accommodates the high hip.Jeans/ Pants with straight to mild bootcut are best.V necks and scoop necks look best on big busted 8′s.Make the most of your small waist with belts (Medium scale belts that tone with your outfit will minimize shortening your waist further).You can also try belting at the low hip forming a V at the front with the belt to lengthen and slim your body. This will only work with fitted tops though. Baggy does not work on an 8.You can wear a longer skirt but make sure that it does not flare until the knee or lower (See outfit 4).Wear shapewear such as control vests and corsets to control tummy and midriff area’s as these tend to be the area’s of concern.For accessories, try bangles and earrings and avoid too much detail at the neck especially if you have a shorter neck or bigger bust.Avoid tucking in tops as this will shorten your waist further; instead opt for untucked and finish the look with a belt.Try light fitted layers as these will cover a multitude of sins at the midriff and create a more interesting look – See outfits 2 & 3.Opt for a look that’s clean and uncluttered as fuss and frill will add bulk/ weight to this curvy frame

Click here (opens in a new window) for advice and tips on how to dress for your proportional body shape. When thin I have a 10" difference and when heavy an 8" difference. I meet the requirements of an Hourglass, yet I have NEVER looked like the example below with a distinctly nipped in waist: I look much more like the examples of an Hourglass below - there is a gentle curve at the waist but it is not pinched/nipped - almost a rectangle but with much more curve in profile - I have a pronounced bust and bottom curve :

I found this to be profoundly accurate.....
What's your colour personality?
Thanks for taking our colour personality test.
Autumn is your primary colour personality.
Summer is your secondary colour personality.
Autumns are intelligent, interested and curious to find out how things
work. Strong personal values and loyalties keeps them true to themselves
and they are more impressed by content than by fancy packaging. Bursts
of enthusiasm often sees them taking on too much work, but they will
persevere until it is complete. Their strong sense of self makes them
excellent leaders but they can edge on being seen as too bossy at time.
Autumns are sociable but like time out to enjoy the great outdoors and
Quality, history, durability and comfort are more important than contemporary
or modern considerations. Autumn homes will often be full of books and
magazines, chunky oversized eclectic furniture built for comfort, antiques
and all things historical. Surfaces from tables to sofas are often loosely
covered and accessories decorate all available spaces - their presence
comfortable to an Autumn but too cluttered for other colour personalities.
Like a squirrel hoarding precious food to see them through the cold
winter, Autumns tend to keep everything adding to the abundance of objects
in a space.
Often city dwellers, most Autumns are more at home in the countryside,
surrounded by nature. The enveloping warmth of fireside entertaining
will appeal. Connected to nature, Autumns are more likely to select
environmentally friendly alternatives to reduce the environmental burden.
Dark wood, leather, copper, terracotta and other natural materials are
commonplace in Autumn homes, bringing the outdoors in to be enjoyed.
Texture is often as important as colour in the selection of these natural
materials. Flowers are likely to be dried not fresh, adding to the richness
and depth of colour without the limited lifetime of a fresh cut stem.
Autumn homes are less formal and more comforting with a sense of closeness
due to the focus on advancing colours, dark furniture and bountiful
accessorising. Fireplace focal points add to the enveloping sense of
warmth and abundance.
Summers are the perfect host, calm and collected, with everything planned
down to the minute details - events at a Summer home will generally
be elegant and run smoothly. Summer homes are usually tidily kept and
are more formal than a Spring home because of the perfectionist tendencies
of Summers. Lofty ceilings, well proportioned rooms and careful architectural
detailing including coving between floor and ceiling are considered
important. Dark beams running across a ceiling or low ceilings will
make a Summer feel boxed in. Balance and order is important in colour
selection, room detailing and accessory positioning.
Summers are nurturing, comfortable looking after guests and family,
possibly appearing cool to outsiders until they are part of the circle
of friends. Highly perceptive they will notice small details that others
may not and act as natural peacemakers working in the background to
keep harmony. Practicality mixed with a reserved nature means that classic
elegance, traditional decorating, antiques, fine china, music and the
arts is more comfortable to a Summer than modernity and sophistication.
The appreciation of these elements will be incorporated into a Summer's
home in hanging embroidery works, musical instruments, such as a piano,
and so on.
The touches of formality lend an overall air of elegance - quiet and
restrained. Delicate luxurious fabrics and vases of traditional roses
or fresh summer flowers reinforce the elegant atmsophere.

What Colors Are Right for You?
Crossover Color Palette
Your decorating color palette contains the shades, tints and
tones that are most often referred to as "basic" or "classic." Simple
and natural are key words in your outlook on design and color. But a
word of caution — every home does need a touch of whimsy or energy, so
you shouldn't let your super-simple tastes make your surroundings too
Actually, the Crossover colors are versatile enough to use in
combination with any of the Colortime palettes, because they represent
the shades that appear most frequently in nature.
If you prefer to use white rather than sand or taupe, choose off-white since pure white can appear almost brilliant.
