delicate, fragile, gentle, extremely feminine
FABRIC AND TEXTURE
-You enjoy wearing soft, smooth woolens because rough, course textures seem too harsh and bulky for your delicate tastes.
-You lean toward sheer cottons–organdy, dimity, dotted Swiss–but you would feel right in almost any crisp, fresh, cotton.
COLOR AND PATTERN
-Usually you look and feed better in soft, pastel hues.
-Bright reds and intense blues and greens tend to overpower a dainty girl unless they are used as accents.
-Select the more delicate prints and more subdued stripes and plaids.
-Big, bold stripes and vivid, splotchy prints would be a strike against you!
-Try feminine details in a dress or blouse–frilly necklines, exquisite lingerie touches, and soft shirring.
-A severe, tailored style might be too “hard” for a dainty miss.
-Adorable little hats were made for your type, because you can get away with flowers, froth, and frou-frou (for dress-up, of course–not with your plaid suit and sneakers).
-You prefer smooth, lightweight leathers for your shoes and handbags. A heavier leather somehow looks clumsy on you.
Remember that these personalities don’t accompany any particular lines or yin/yang balance, archetype, etc. If you have a dainty clothing preference, you can incorporate these ideas into the clothes that work for you.
