If you answered mostly A’s – then you are the timeless traditionalist:
An acute sense of the classic seeps into your style in that your garments and ensembles are traditional staples of female suiting. From the unassuming neutral coloured skirts, trousers and blazers that are comfortably worn with white blouses, a strong and reliable sense of classic style is born. This attire is never garish and buttresses rather that overshadows the working womans acute acumen.


If you answered mostly B’s – then you are the contemporary connoisseur:
On the pulse of sartorial stylings and trends, your suiting and formal attire is not dictated by but more so draws inspiration from modern culture. Colours and fits are virtually limitless and patterned pieces are not void from the style palette. Conscious that suiting garments can be worn together or individually, your ensembles always have a unique edge within the formal remit.


If you answered mostly C’s – then you are the rogue rule-breaker:
Far from being confined to a particular style, you are most comfortable by picking and choosing what works for you – regardless if the result is either traditional or modern. Yet with this, your own sense of style shines through which brings a cohesion to your ensembles. Your wardrobe is equipped with plain and patterned pieces and garments such as fitted waistcoats and tailored overcoats make an appearance.
