Look good, feel great...your image is our business!
What is your image saying about YOU?
Visual impression: Soft, feminine and pretty
Psychological impression: Gentle, caring, romantic and captivating
Romantic or feminine ladies often have a soft, feminine non-threatening appearance, and are most often blonde with an hour glass figure. Your clothes are designed to appeal to men in particular and to show off your shape and your femininity.
Natural and synthetic blends will appeal to you, especially those which are soft to touch, are smooth and light in texture, in gentle pretty colours, and drape beautifully. You love wearing dresses and skirts rather than trousers. Footwear will invariably be pretty and often not very practical, often with extra detailing like bows, or in suede, velvet or other tactile fabrics. You are likely to wear suits which are designed to look like a two-piece dress. Trousers do not feature highly in your wardrobe.
You love wearing make-up and enjoy trying out new looks. Small to medium-sized jewellery in a smooth design, perhaps with a touch of sparkle; you love diamonds! You will love soft, swirling curls which either frame your face or fall over one eye.
You are most likely to feel more comfortable in dresses, or clothes with soft or curved lines. You look good in jackets which are fitted or nipped in at the waist. Coats and non-matching jackets may be worn as an accessory rather than for practicality. If you choose trousers (which won’t be often), the fabric will be fluid and soft, although you may choose tight leggings or capri pants with kitten heels to show off your shape.
· Fabrics... smooth and light, soft to touch, e.g. cashmere, angora, silk and satin
· Patterns... delicate floral prints, spots or squiggles
· Make-up... soft and feminine, you spend time over your look
· Jewellery... dangly, pretty items with lots of intricate detail
· Colours for clothes... soft, pretty pastels
Romantic clothes are not appropriate for the business arena. If you follow your natural clothing instincts, you will be seen as too fluffy and unprofessional. Man-made fibres, or blends with natural fibres, are your best choice for business wear. You will always feel more comfortable in a dress and matching jacket or should go for a fitted and matching suit, to help your show off your figure. You should aim to tone down your make-up a little and avoid too much shimmer (or should that be ‘shimmy’?) in the office. Hair accessories need to be removed for business.
