For a casual style, a woman with a classic fashion personality is not a fan of wearing jeans and tee. In fact, she is drawn to chic and sophisticated pieces that can be worn in a casual style like a pair of sleek pants, form-fitting sweater, striped shirt dress, trench coats, button-down blouses, knitted tops, and even straight leg pants. You may also opt for a pair of denim jeans, but skip those acid-washed, patchwork design, distressed, and faded style of jeans and stick to plain shades of skinny jeans. Boot cuts and flared styles look too bohemian for you while boyfriend fits look too slouchy and baggy for you. Also, skip those sneakers and too casual sandals and stick to classic pumps with comfy heels as well as a chic pair of ballet flats.

The classic fashion personality type is most interested in investment dressing as you’re not afraid to spend money on clothing or accessories that will last a long time. A peek in your closet reveals many neutral colors, especially black, white, gray, nude, and frequently classic shades of red and navy. Flashy colors and neon shades are definitely out of the equation. You also tend to prefer solid colors, rather than prints and most of your dresses and skirts fall to the knee. Think of a monochromatic look for you that always looks timeless and elegant. Picking for the shades of black and navy can be incorporated into a monochromatic fashion style too, which is another way to look longer and leaner.

Since a classic fashion personality always aims to look perfectly polished and elegant, you may think of beautiful fine fabrics like wool, silk, lace, satin, chiffon, velvet, fur, cashmere and such that look ethereal and sleek. Though you may wear some leather ensembles in chic styles, you may want to avoid looking edgy and rocker-chic to your looks. Like fashion blogger Jessica Ricks, you may opt for a leather skirt in midi length to wear with your feminine chiffon blouse perfect for a work attire. Skip those heavy embellished pieces, studs, spikes, and fringes that don’t look classic and decent.

Though you prefer solid colors, you can still wear classic prints like houndstooth, stripes, checks, leopard, plaids, polka dots and skip those flashy ones like abstract, geometric, graphic, and even novelty ones that don’t look classic. Though your selection of prints may be classic, you also wish to take note of its colors as a leopard print should be in the shades of camel and black rather than purple and blues, as well as your stripes in the shades of black, white, red, or blue rather than a rainbow-color style.

When selecting your accessories, stick to chic and classy ones like a jeweled necklace, simple stud earrings, chic watch, or even a simple gold bracelet. Skip those plastic necklaces, quirky pendants, rocker-chic chokers, and neon-colored cuffs that don’t look classic and chic. You may also wish for a chic structured bag and a pair of classic pumps that will add some polish to your style.

Indeed, a classic fashion personality is one of the timeless and elegant styles that a woman can have. So, dress for your personality to convey your elegant style with grace.
