1. Focal Point

The slight fullness at the hip using Fabric that is quite substantial establishes the true hip Focal Point of the Elaborate Classic Style.

3. Line

The silhouette is Alpha or fitted, and relates to the body at four points: the shoulder, the waist, the hip and the foot. Lines are medium long.

2. Fabric

The heavy ornamented Fabric of the skirt substitutes for a print and achieves a powerful statement. A belt smooths the junction of the Fabric types.

4. Ornament

The wrist jewelry and earrings add intensity. Note the mix of gold and silver at the wrists—Ornaments that do not match just add interest for this Style.

1. Focal Point

The flare of the jacket at the hip provides the Focal Point for the Elaborate Classic, underscored by the introduction of emphatic Colour in the pant.

3. Line

The strong fitted Alpha Line of the jacket is combined with a slightly Omega pant that balances the drama of the outfit, respecting the Classic element of this Style.

2. Fabric

Elaborate Classic Fabrics have shine, smooth finishes, balanced weaves, firmness and medium heavy weight, as evidenced in this stunning outfit.

4. Ornament

The shine in the Fabrics is just as much Ornament here as the hat and purse. The rounded lines of the handbag and hat also balance the dramatically clean Lines of the outfit.

1. Focal Point

The dropped waist seam joins the bodice to a stronger design statement in the skirt that pulls the emphasis to the hip Focal Point of the Elaborate Classic.

3. Line

Lines are medium long and very deliberate in order to add intensity to the medium-Alpha silhouette of the Elaborate Classic. Note the slight shoulder emphasis.

2. Fabric

The glittery medium-heavyweight Fabric adds intensity. The Fabrics also demonstrate a balanced weave and firmness, necessary to support the Line here.

4. Ornament

The single necklace adds drama. It would be even more effective if the shape of the pendant mirrored the low-middle Focal Point rather than widen out at the end.

1. Focal Point

Although it cannot be seen in this photo, the leather band will have to be used in some way to mark the hip Focal Point of the Elaborate Classic.

3. Line

The leather details illustrate the Elaborate Classic’s length of Line, the way the energy moves into the center, and the way the shoulder is also emphasized slightly in this Style.

2. Fabric

The firm weave adjoined to the leather strip demonstrate how necessary firm, medium-heavy, balanced weave Fabrics are to achieving the Elaborate Classic intensity.

4. Ornament

Ornament is sparing for the Elaborate Classic. Here the strong statement of the leather stripe and a small earring fulfill the need for Ornament.

1. Focal Point

The large ornately embroidered exterior pockets clearly and creatively emphasize the hip Focal Point of the Elaborate Classic.

3. Line

The Fabric differences mentioned above necessitate the width of the belt, although this width does contradict the medium Alpha nature of this silhouette.

2. Fabric

The common weave, weight and smoothness of the silk-wool turtleneck and velours-Lamé skirt would be more effective if they were the same Colour or shine.

4. Ornament

The belt would become Ornament rather than a “Fabric bridge” if it were an unrelated Colour. In the absence of a strong shoulder, the earrings work to carry the eye upwards.
