Our final installment in my style personality series is dedicated to the City Chic’s within us, or for my male audience, the International. With this being the last blog in the series I thought I’d just give you a little reminder about what your style personality is and how it can affect your buying decisions. Your style personality is that inner voice that pulls you to an item whether it be a car, a house, a shoe or a handbag. It comes well before the colour of said item, the shape and whether or not it will suit and flatter you. Generally speaking you will relate to elements within 3 or 4 of the categories but will have a real connection with at least two.

If you find yourself in this category, you may feel that you are a little bit of all of the other five categories, all wrapped up in one, this is the true ability of a City Chic or International, adapting your style to suit your location and the occasion. You enjoy clothes but are not fanatical about them. You dedicate time and thought to the way you look and you love to accessorise, often spending more on bags and shoes than the outfit itself. You could be described as a minimalist in both your home and work environments.

You tend to follow trends rather than High Street fashion and keep updated with the latest fashion staples by reading appropriate magazines and newspapers. Having tried out most of the other key styles and experimented with lots of different looks, you now know what suits you and you know how to use this to your advantage. Shopping is done with care and precision, never making rash purchases and ensuring that whatever you buy co-ordinates with other items in your wardrobe. You use bright colour with caution, tending to opt for a tone on tone look instead.

A word of wisdom, tone on tone does not work for all colouring types so if it’s dating you or washing you out, try adding a pop of colour in accessory form such as a statement necklace or handbag or shoe.

Think George Clooney, Halle Berry, Pierce Brosnan and Freida Pinto.
