A capsule wardrobe and style guide for the NATURAL style personality
Do you like to look relaxed and like you haven’t tried to hard? Do you favor a casual style which is comfortable, but which still looks put together and stylish? Then it’s likely you have a natural style personality.
Most people will have one dominant style personality, but will also relate to other style personalities too.
By combining your dominant style personality with your secondary style personality, you can create a look which is unique to you.
But, don’t worry if you’re not too sure what your own style personality is. You can always take our fun quiz to determine your style personality.

So, what are the elements of a natural style personality?
1. Comfort is important to you.
You want easy-to-wear pieces in relaxed fabrics which allow you to move freely.

2. You love the quality and feel of natural materials.
You aren’t one to indulge in fast fashion in man-made fibers like polyester. Instead, you prefer fewer pieces in fabrics like leather, suede, linen, silk, wool and cashmere.

3. You are drawn to the colors of nature.
You are unlikely to go with bright primary colors or black. You’re likely to favor greens, denim blues and autumnal hues – colors you can find in the countryside.

4. A low maintenance beauty and hair routine is important to you.
You like to look good, but you don’t want to spend hours in the bathroom and in front of the mirror before heading out.

5. You aren’t too bothered about following fashion trends.
But you may add in the odd current trend to your existing wardrobe to keep it current. It’s important the pieces you do buy are timeless enough to last for a number of seasons.

6. You definitely prefer flat, comfortable shoes over heels.
The relaxed, yet stylish, vibe created above by is a great example of an outfit for the natural style personality.
This outfit is casual, yet well put together, with little finishing touches, such as the detailing on the jacket, which make it special.

Her jacket, for example, with the structural shape and cut-out detailing on the neck would also appeal to the architectural style personality, while her ballet flats are the perfect shoes for the classic style personality.

Natural style tops
You will want to put together a collection of shirts and tees which can be either dressed down or which can be put together with smarter pieces.
Classic white shirts, denim shirts, check pieces, neutral tees, tunics and long cardigans should allow you to put together a wide range of outfits.
When you want to dress up your look, the classic white shirt and blazer combination is one which is a fail-safe. But, to dress down, you could simply choose a tee, jeans and sneakers, or a double-denim outfit.

Natural style jackets & coats
As a natural style personality, you won’t want anything too fussy, unlike if you have a street/urban personality, for example, wherein you like to experiment with different styles.
Stick to natural, timeless styles such as a denim jacket, a moto jacket in a neutral shade, a classic trench and a blazer.
The denim and leather pieces will go with most of your wardrobe, while the blazer will allow you to add a smart touch where you need to.
Simply adding a blazer to a white or neutral tee shirt and a pair of jeans will elevate your casual looks when you want.
Adding a few tailored pieces to your casual wardrobe will ensure you can dress appropriately for all occasions.

Natural style pants & jeans
It is likely that you favor pants over dresses and skirts. They’re simply easier to move in and you feel more confident in pants.
Make sure you find some perfectly fitting jeans, chinos or combat-style pants, and maybe some linen pants for warmer weather.
Opt for styles such as bootcut and boyfriend which won’t date and which will allow you to wear with casual shoes or heels to give your closet flexibility.

Natural style casual dresses & skirts
Even though you are likely to favor pants, you will want to make sure that you do have some skirts and dresses in your closet which you feel comfortable in.
A shirt dress will take you from day to night, while a wrap style suits every body shape and will allow you to feel comfortable, yet you can style it for daywear or evening.
You could, for example, wear a wrap dress for vacation time with sandals, or you could wear heeled sandals or booties for an evening out.

When it comes to skirts, opting for natural, completely timeless pieces such as a denim skirt and linen pieces will mean you will be able to continue to wear them for many seasons to come.
Because you don’t like to spend a lot of time shopping, it’s particularly important for the natural style personality to opt for pieces which will be on trend for a long time.
Natural style shoes
As a natural style personality, comfort is definitely important to you. You don’t want to suffer to be on trend! While you like to look stylish, you hate to feel restricted.
As such, you will want to put together a shoe collection which features more flats, wedges and low heels rather than high heels which are likely to sit unused at the bottom of your closet.
Bev (above) chooses a pair of block heels, which are easier to wear than stilettos.
A pair of white sneakers will go with everything, while natural tan sandals will be perfect for your vacations and warmer weather.
Even when you do opt for heels, you don’t have to choose shoes which are formal. A pair of shoe boots will keep your look current, while a pair of heeled sandals will also work for evening.
Natural style accessories
You don’t like wearing a lot of jewelry. Usually, if you do wear anything, you are likely to keep it very subtle – perhaps only adding a watch and a pair of stud earrings.
Scarves will be your best friend when it comes to accessories because they can elevate even the most casual of styles.
Choose a couple of scarves which will pull the color palettes in your closet together. Then, you can team with everything from your leather moto jacket to your blazer.

When it comes to bags, you are likely to prefer a crossbody style which will keep your hands free.
But, do add a clutch bag to your closet for evening as you won’t want to be carrying a large bag around with you at dinners and events.
