Do you like to look relaxed and like you haven’t tried too hard? Do you favor a casual style which is comfortable, but which still looks put together and stylish? Then it’s likely you have a natural style personality.

Most people will have one dominant style personality, but will also relate to other style personalities too.

By combining your dominant style personality with your secondary style personality, you can create a look which is unique to you.

What is a natural style?

Read on for all of the qualities of the natural style personality. Overall, natural style is one that favours comfort. It is about natural colors, natural materials, simple styles and minimal patterns.

What is natural style dressing? 

Natural style outfits will create a visual impression of freedom, a carefreeness that looks like you haven’t tried too hard. You combine an easy chic style that looks comfortable and timeless.

SO, WHAT ARE THE ELEMENTS OF A NATURAL STYLE PERSONALITY?

Below, we take you through all the likes and dislikes of the natural style personality so you can see if this resonates with you.

1. YOU LOVE THE QUALITY AND FEEL OF NATURAL MATERIALS

You aren’t one to indulge in fast fashion in man-made fibers like polyester. Instead, you prefer fewer pieces in fabrics like leather, suede, linen, silk, wool and cashmere.

You could look out for clothes in natural and sustainable materials, like the tencel midi dress (below).

2. YOU ARE DRAWN TO THE COLORS OF NATURE

You are unlikely to go with bright primary colors or black. You’re likely to favor greens, denim blues and autumnal hues – colors you can find in the countryside. The cardigan below combines an on-trend green shade with cotton and rayon material.

3. COMFORT IS IMPORTANT TO YOU

You want easy-to-wear pieces in relaxed fabrics which allow you to move freely. Jersey is a good fabric for you as it is stretchy, moves with you, and generally doesn’t need ironing.

4. YOU AREN’T TOO BOTHERED ABOUT FOLLOWING FASHION TRENDS

But you may add in the odd current trend to your existing wardrobe to keep it current. It’s important the pieces you do buy are timeless enough to last for a number of seasons.

5. YOU DEFINITELY PREFER FLAT, COMFORTABLE SHOES OVER HEELS

The relaxed, yet stylish, vibe created by flat shoes is ideal for the natural style personality. For warmer weather, a pair of Birkenstock sandals will be perfect.

6. A LOW MAINTENANCE BEAUTY AND HAIR ROUTINE IS IMPORTANT TO YOU

You like to look good, but you don’t want to spend hours in the bathroom and in front of the mirror before heading out.

CASUAL STYLE CAPSULE FOR THE NATURAL STYLE PERSONALITY

If that all resonates with you, then this guide should prove a fantastic resource for you, particularly if you are looking to put together a wardrobe which you can mix and match to easily put together outfits to suit your natural style.

These key pieces will allow you to create very casual looks, but you can also elevate your natural style through the use of more structured jackets, scarves, shoes and boots.

Let’s take a look at some of the individual clothes, shoes and accessories you could use to put together a natural capsule.

Also, read our ultimate guide to creating a capsule wardrobe.

NATURAL STYLE TOPS

You will want to put together a collection of shirts and tees which can be either dressed down or which can be put together with smarter pieces.

Classic white shirts, denim shirts, check pieces, neutral tees, tunics and long cardigans should allow you to put together a wide range of outfits.

When you want to dress up your look, the classic white shirt and blazer combination is one which is a fail-safe. But, to dress down, you could simply choose a tee, jeans and sneakers, or a double-denim outfit.

NATURAL STYLE SWEATERS & CARDIGANS

As a natural style personality, you are likely to prefer draped styles that don’t constrict you. Wearing a long, loose sweater over your outfit can pull together your look, keep you warm, and create nice, long, lean lines. Or opt for shorter styles that you can wear with wide pants or jeans.

NATURAL STYLE JACKETS & COATS

As a natural style personality, you won’t want anything too fussy, unlike if you have a street/urban personality, for example, wherein you like to experiment with different styles.

Stick to natural, timeless styles such as a denim jacket, a moto jacket in a neutral shade, a classic trench and a blazer.

Denim or leather pieces will go with most of your wardrobe, while the blazer will allow you to add a smart touch where you need to.

Simply adding a blazer to a white or neutral tee shirt and a pair of jeans will elevate your casual looks when you want.

Adding a few tailored pieces to your casual wardrobe will ensure you can dress appropriately for all occasions.

NATURAL STYLE PANTS & JEANS

It is likely that you favor pants over dresses and skirts. They’re simply easier to move in and you feel more confident in pants.

Make sure you find some perfectly fitting jeans, chinos or combat-style pants, and maybe some linen pants for warmer weather. Leggings are also perfect for the natural style personality.

Opt for styles such as bootcut and boyfriend which won’t date and which will allow you to wear with casual shoes or heels to give your closet flexibility.

NATURAL STYLE CASUAL DRESSES

Even though you are likely to favor pants, you will want to make sure that you do have some skirts and dresses in your closet which you feel comfortable in.

A shirt dress will take you from day to night, while a wrap style suits every body shape and will allow you to feel comfortable, yet you can style it for daywear or evening.

You could, for example, wear a wrap dress for vacation time with sandals, or you could wear heeled sandals or booties for an evening out.

When it comes to skirts, opting for natural, completely timeless pieces such as a denim skirt and linen pieces will mean you will be able to continue to wear them for many seasons to come.

Because you don’t like to spend a lot of time shopping, it’s particularly important for the natural style personality to opt for pieces which will be on trend for a long time.

NATURAL STYLE SHOES

As a natural style personality, comfort is definitely important to you. You don’t want to suffer to be on trend! While you like to look stylish, you hate to feel restricted.

As such, you will want to put together a shoe collection which features more flats, wedges and low heels rather than high heels which are likely to sit unused at the bottom of your closet.

A pair of white sneakers will go with everything, while natural tan sandals will be perfect for your vacations and warmer weather.

Even when you do opt for heels, you don’t have to choose shoes which are formal. A pair of shoe boots will keep your look current, while a pair of heeled sandals will also work for evening.

NATURAL STYLE ACCESSORIES

You don’t like wearing a lot of jewelry. Usually, if you do wear anything, you are likely to keep it very subtle – perhaps only adding a watch and a pair of stud earrings.

Scarves will be your best friend when it comes to accessories because they can elevate even the most casual of styles.

Choose a couple of scarves which will pull the color palettes in your closet together. Then, you can team with everything from your leather moto jacket to your blazer.

When it comes to bags, you are likely to prefer a crossbody style which will keep your hands free.

But, do add a clutch bag to your closet for evening as you won’t want to be carrying a large bag around with you at dinners and events. You could also look for timeless tote and woven style bags.
