MOSTLY AS: THE CLASSICIST
You love nothing better than a crisp white shirt and a pair of skinny jeans. For you it’s all about classic staples, timeless shapes, a neutral colour palette, perhaps with a splash of the season’s ‘it’ shade here and there. Sticking to clean lines and shapes that you know fit and sit well is your secret. Autumn/Winter 2018 is all about animal print, so you can congratulate yourself now for knowing those leopard print flats would always be chic. The best way to shake things up is to experiment with textures with your favourite shapes – perhaps a velvet blazer or pencil skirt – or accessories that are bold but semi-practical, such as this season’s must-have: the oversized clutch.
MOSTLY BS: THE MODERN MUSE
You’ve got your finger on the pulse of all the latest trends. For you it’s not about this season, it’s about the next. You love a statement pairing (hello, head-to-toe silk maxi dress and white leather boots). You try and centre your seasonal wardrobe around one focus point – usually a vibrant coat or killer pair of shoes, but let’s be honest, one statement piece is never enough. And life is too short to not embrace fashion’s greatest moments as they’re happening. This season, mix on-trend prints and layer one on top of the other for artfully effortless style.
MOSTLY CS: THE LAIDBACK LUXE
You’re far too busy brunching, lunching, and generally living your best life to be too concerned with your fashion credentials. At least that’s the impression you like to give. You’re all about that pared-back vibe that can be pulled together in thirty seconds. Truth be told, this style takes a fair amount of cultivation and choosing just the right pieces is important for that #OOTD. Luckily, you’re blessed with the ability to combine vintage couture with something straight off the high street and aren’t afraid to mix things up.
