Classic style

Only great minds can afford a simple style (Stendhal)

Classic clothing personality/fashion persona is a sign of grace and tasteful style. 
A Classic style is the basis of chic fashion. It has characteristics that appeal to a majority of "neat & tidy" women - especially those who appreciate tailored clothes and accessories. Minimalism, Preppy (ie. Loafers) and Elegant (think Chanel-style suit) style are variations of this fashion persona. Classic style also overlaps with Dramatic and Natural.
