clothing personalities, part 2 (classic and gamin)

classic
...
She is the epitome of elegance and refinement. The classic personality is very controlled, from the time of her youth; she expresses her heart and soul in her appearance. She does not like chaotic environments...it will always bring out the worst in her. As a person, she is warm and caring. She is always sincere.
...
Her body type is as follows:
Height is average (5'4" to 5'7"). Figure will be balanced and symmetrical. Her appearance is one of a mature adult, never "girlish". Body is not too thin, too delicate or too sturdy
...
Personality Profile:
Emotional nature, balanced, controlled and rational. Old fashioned person, home body.
...
Clothing:
Elegant, refined, fashionable, dignified, clean simple lines. Softly tailored or soft flowing. Ensemble dressing, not usually mix and match. Never trendy, faddish or severe in style. No crisp, bouffant lines.
...
Fabrics for her:
Matte finishes or low luster are best. Fabric weights are moderate. Smooth knots and double knits are great. Refined textures such as silk, soft woolen fabrics, cottons, smooth knits
...
Patterns:
Evenly placed prints, soft flowing abstracts, houndstooth, herringbone, polka dots, stripes, solids.
...
Accessories:
Jewelry, belts, handbags and shoes should be refined, elegant and fashionable. Sleek, slightly chunky, smooth circle or geometic, no angles. Classics do not wear dangles or funky stuff!
...
Shopping tips:
A planned budget is ideal. Because classics need to purchase quality clothing, your motto needs to be "Less clothes for more money". Focus on a base color scheme, especially if money is limited for clothing purchases. Investing in solids and refined fabrics are the key. Keep an eye on fashion trends, not fads, to stay current and fashionable
...
Proto-types:
Audrey Hepburn, Jackie Kennedy Onassis, Grace Kelly, Nancy Reagan
...
gamin
...
The gamin is the most misunderstood of all the personalities. Many of them want to be another personality. She is petite and often is unwilling to accept her petiteness and does not want to be called cute...and yet, she is adorably cute! Her personality is spunky and energetic. She loves fun and a good time. Many gamins take "the party" wherever they go.
...
Her body type is as follows:
Height is 5'5" and under, Build is small to medium, Her body can be straight and slim or chunky and stocky.
...
Personality Profile:
Energetic, drive, spunk. Dynamic, charming personality. Fast mover.
...
Clothing:
Very tailored, straight, sharp fine lines. Animated outline, snappy, chic, lots of crisp trims of contrast, braiding or beads. Eye catching details.
...
Fabrics for her:
Colors should be bold and sassy as she can create, Multi-color splashes or caricature work well, Prints should be colorful, animated and contemporary, Matte or low luster finishes of fabric surfaces are best. Oriental silks, crisp cottons, wool, etc.
...
Patterns:
Smart, colorful, animated, trendy and contemporary in look.
...
Accessories:
Jewelry pieces should be scaled to body proportions....smaller sizes are generally best. Gamins are the only personality who use contrasting hosiery colors for a more staccato appearance. Small and geometric, asymmetrical or irregular shapes. Contemporary and trendy looks.
...
Shopping tips:
A planned budget is ideal. Focus should be petite sizing. You are perfect for mix and match. Avoid monochromatic, unless you are combined with another personality. Coordinate two or three colors into your garments. One color needs to dominate as a foundation color.
...
Proto-types:
Sandy Duncan, Sally Fields, Carol Channing
