The Classic is one of the main types. The look is balanced, cohesive and elegant. The silhouette is fairly tailored and fitted – neither loose nor cinched. No accessory or garment steals the attention from the Classic’s face – the outfit is perfectly balanced to the person wearing it. Rather than being a type for style fads or extremes, the Classic looks best in a nearly timeless look where quality is more important than quantity, one that looks as beautiful today as it will tomorrow – whether that is expressed through a shift dress and pearl earrings, or a pair of chinos and a semi-fitted silk blouse with a simple silver necklace, the Classic look will remain elegant.

Worst looks are avant garde, very relaxed or any other extreme.
