A Natural style personality looks informal, unpretentious and comfortable.
The impression you give is of a woman who's comfortable and happy in her own skin. This comfort promotes confidence.
A relaxed way of dressing, without fuss, allows you to look friendly and approachable.
Simple, easy-to-wear outfits with smooth lines that give you the freedom of movement that you need.
You love the feel of quality natural fabrics - leather, suede, wool and cotton - and are instinctively drawn to gentle and natural colors, soft pastels, denim blues, autumn tones - natural colors taken from the earth and countryside.
Your makeup, hair and grooming program will be minimal so make it work for you. This is not due to a lack of interest in maintaining a good appearance but because you place comfort above high fashion.
A makeup routine with versatile natural looking products and a good haircut that's easy to style are essential for you. A little planning goes a long way.
You may have a Natural style personality but you are not a 'natural' shopper and can even regard it as a chore!
You like quality items but they must offer comfort over style. You expect your clothes to last but they must be easy-care, low maintenance and hard wearing.
You need clothes that you can put on and forget, life is far too important to spend bothering over fussy details.
Dame Judi Dench has adopted her own inimitable fuss-free style by teaming unstructured neutrals with a stunning array of wraps to fit the occasion.
Good quality casual clothes will always be your priority. To maintain freedom of movement in business or
formal occasions, you will probably be more comfortable in trouser suits, or trousers/culottes with a co-ordinating jacket. Choose a less structured cut rather than something too sharply tailored.
If you live in the country then the question of warmth has to be factored in and sweaters need to work in layers and sturdy shoes or boots teamed with woollen tights. Wool tweeds, waxed coats or sheepskins will come into their own in the winter months.
You will dress up if you have to, and it is worth investing in a few quality pieces that will allow you to adopt an easy elegance whilst remaining relaxed and casual. Well cut separates in beautiful soft silk and linen are dressy enough for most occasions without compromising your feeling of comfort.

Jennifer Aniston is frequently photographed in jeans and casual wear.
She always appears to bring chic to casual at ease with her appearance and never looking as though she's really had to try.
If you find yourself always reverting to t-shirt and jeans at the
earliest opportunity, treat yourself to a great jacket and updated accessories to
move natural casual into natural chic.
