The Romantic Fashion Personality

A perfect example of the romantic dresser is the prim and proper character of "Charlotte" from "Sex and the City" fame played by Kristin Davis. Charlotte, like the romantic dresser, is very feminine. She likes comfort and pampering and usually projects herself as being fragile and in need of a knight in shining armour.

Frills and ruffles
Skirts and dresses make up the bulk of her wardrobe and you will also find lots of frills, bows and lace trims detailing on most of her fashion accessories. She is partial to soft, light to medium weight fabrics such as silk, crepe, angora and jersey. She likes gored skirts, pleated skirts, dresses cut on the bias and embroidery is also a big fashion trend with her.

The romantic dresser sticks to the pastel colours and loves paisley prints, florals, gingham and polka dots. Deep cut blouses or dresses with plunging necklines such as a sweetheart neckline or V neckline appeal to her. She loves girly, whimsical detailing such as tiered frill skirts, patchwork and overlays of lace, bouncy tiers and upstanding frills. She would therefore love English Fashion Designer Luella's spring 2009 ready to wear collection which was very fun and feminine indeed.

Floral Jewelry
Her jewelry and other fashion accessories like her handbags are just as dainty, delicate and curvaceous as her clothing. Her jewelry is delicate and pretty to the eye. She adores delicately made handmade jewelry like orchid necklaces or hibiscus necklaces handmade from leather and hand painted in pinks and purples.

The floral theme transcends her entire wardrobe and may include floral brooches, handmade corsage brooches and floral adornments for her hair. Her handbags are small and feminine and would include floral print bags, bags with frills and ruffles, tartan patterned bags and bags with gingham binding. Her scarves are knitted felted luxury wool scarves finished by hand with ruffled edges.

If you are still having problems envisaging who wears romantic fashion then think of "Elle" played by Reese Witherspoon in Legally Blonde.
