Introducing the Whimsical Endearing Spirit Woman of Style
(AKA Romantic Fashion Style)
The style personality of a Whimsical Endearing Spirit embraces clothing styles that incorporate soft pleating, fabrics that delicately drape around your body and you enjoy taking extra time to ensure you are properly presented as a lady ought to be. Your style is romantic, charming and whimsical. You do not gravitate toward bold colour palettes or colours that overpower you, nor do you feel comfortable in fashion silhouettes that have structured lines that do not add a visual element of softness to your overall look. If you choose to wear jeans you prefer to pair it with a softly pleated blouse or cashmere sweater with a matching camisole on the inside. If you are wearing a business suit for the office or meeting with a client you prefer to soften the look with neutral makeup (soft makeup) and understated accessories, such as pearls or diamond stud earrings. You overlap with the Classically Chic and Conservative style archetype who are most comfortable in outfits that are timeless and exude feminine confidence.
However, before we start I would like to preface this article by stating that you may not always fall neatly into any one specific style personality. Interestingly, you may intersect between 2 or 3 alternative style personalities that suit your personal style preferences. If you would like to learn and discover more about your authentic style personality I highly suggest you sign up for my FREE Energy & Personal Style Re-Alignment Webinar (Coming Spring 2019) which I have created to assist women who are experiencing life transitions in exploring and redefining their personal style, from a holistic and authentic approach.
Romantic Fashion Style – Tip #1: The style personality of the Whimsical Endearing Spirit (romantic fashion style) naturally gravitates towards feminine delicate materials, such as silk, satin, cashmere, finest of cotton; signature embellishments include: ribbon trimming, luxurious draping and pleating, chiffon and soft ruffles.
Romantic Fashion Style – Tip #2: You are most likely inspired and intrigued by the fashion and style sensibilities of the Victorian Era. White gloves, fancy hats delicate corsets and antique jewellery are a source of visual inspiration for you.
Romantic Fashion Style – Tip #3: If you are a romantic fashion style your everyday clothing should drape and softly flow against your curves/physique. You most likely would not feel comfortable in structured fabrics and lines that create hard edges against your body; rather you will feel most confident wearing outfits that have a softness to them and drape effortlessly across your body. If you were to wear a formal pant suit for professional reasons you would feel a need to soften the look with elegant, delicate jewellery, a modern hairstyle and neutral makeup.
Romantic Fashion Style – Tip #4: Jewellery pieces that would look best with this style personality are antique heirlooms, pearls, diamonds and gold.
Romantic Fashion Style – Tip #5: You naturally exude femininity and prefer soft, neutral colours in your everyday wardrobe and accessory selection; however, adding vibrant, pops of colour to your outfit and accessories is always a clever way to keep your look fresh and modern, but your anchor colour palette will always fall within soft neutrals and flirty pastels.
If you haven’t done so already, I highly encourage you to check out my Color Synergy Series (Part I) and (Part II), where you can learn more about the visual impact and power color has in our everyday personal style.
Romantic Fashion Style – Tip #6: Be careful not to indulge too much with ruffles, lace and ribbons if you work in a conservative, corporate environment. Too much softness will dilute your perceived professionalism and ability to convey your personal brand with authority. If wearing a suit to a business meeting, giving a presentation or meeting with a client do make sure to choose sophisticated silhouettes that are structured, but not overly edgy.
