Basic Style Personalities

Style is easy to recognize yet difficult to define. Style is about having an eye for harmony, an instinct for relationships, a willingness to experiment plus a refusal to accept make-do solutions. Style should be not just for looks but for living. Style should be about values and things that last. Its about being somebody, standing for something, being an individual. It should add beauty comfort and dreams to your life. Achieving a personal style is dependent on experience and self awareness and for many people the journey lasts a lifetime.

Most people have an inkling of the style to which they are naturally driven to even if they would be hard put to define it precisely. Classic, bohemian, preppy street wise, minimalist are the dominant fashion personality types. Which are you? We've defined basic style personalities as a guideline, a sort of inspirational field guide to defining and refining your style. Start with the origins or essence of a style to create your mood but do not be bound by it. Its the personal details that become the truest form of self-expression.
