The Natural is a strong, sturdy woman who is casual by nature, and typically unconcerned with fashion. She is the hardworking gal who is dependable, loyal and supportive. Most people are comfortable around her, because she is comfortable with herself. I like to relate this Image Identity (Img.ID) to the Daisy, which has a rustic and simple with no need for perfection. Like the Daisy, the Natural’s features, frame and personality are strong, blunt and maybe even a bit rough, and so should her image be.
If you are a Natural, here is my caution for the week:
By definition, “Natural” calls for very little alterations from the origional. Change is uncomfortable, and comfort is the Natural’s highest priority. Typically, Naturals do not like to dress up or shop.
- Be careful not to repeat your outfits too often, and do not let your clothing wear out or become “un-kept.”
- Be aware of the level of formality of the events you attend and be sure to dress accordingly in order to show respect to those hosting/attending.
