The Comfort Woman is all about feeling relaxed and looking
casual. Athletic details such as hoodies and joggers in plush fabrics are this Style Personality's go-to items. The Comfort Woman was the first Style Personality to embrace athleisure and will live in leggings long after the trend has past. Shades of blue tend to compose the majority of color in her wardrobe followed by hues with a hazy fade. She is drawn to stripes and prints that feature a beachy element. The Comfort Woman can be confused with the the Classic, as they both prefer simplicity in their clothes.

I strongly believe that the strength of great personal style begins with knowing your Style Personality. I spend a significant amount of time identifying and educating my clients on how to create consistency in their shopping habits and personal brand identity. Everything from texture, silhouette, and color are nonverbal visual cues into your style identity.
Each week in February, I'll dedicate a post to each Style Personality's defining characteristics and aesthetics. Most women can see elements of them self in each Style and think in terms of occasion. A Style Personality is defined by the dominant emotion attached to how you want to feel and be perceived every time you get dressed. It determines your purchases, your brands, and the general curation of your wardrobe.
