Contemporary style is often defined by clean lines with a casual atmosphere, open spaces, neutral colors, and elements and materials inspired by nature. It is all about finding shapes and silhouettes that flatter you and make you feel good about yourself.
Classic style is a design that has stood the test of time because it is flattering on almost everyone and is never out of style.
Discretion: The outfit doesn’t show off too much skin; it leaves something to the imagination
Flattering: It accentuates the wearer’s best aspects and hides the problem areas
Effortless: The person wears the outfit, the outfit doesn’t wear the person.
Tailored: This can also be called the “Goldilocks rule”; the clothing cant be too tight, nor too loose. It must fit just right.
Cultivated: The outfit must be accessorized in a way that compliments and doesn’t detract from the wearer.
