1. Focal Point

The wide belt with gold details approximates the focal point of the high waist, although it would be better if it were slightly higher.

3. Ornament

Rhythm, or repetition, is a necessary part of ornamentation for the Refined Natural, shown here with the gold details of the belt and necklace, mixed with the similarly scaled print of the jacket.

2. Line

The fitted jacket is very becoming for this Style but it's made even better by the layered fur piece on one side.

4. Fabric

The Refined Natural is a Style that can successfully use very different fabric types within the same outfit, as you see done here.

1. Focal Point

This slightly cropped fur jacket approximates the Refined Natural Focal Point of the high waist through the ending point of the lapels.

3. Ornament

The simple seaming on the jeans as well as the soft texture from the fur create the details that carry this ensemble. This look is ornamented mostly by the layering of the fur jacket.

2. Line

The silhouette of this look is quite Alpha, with the fitted jeans and fitted sleeves. The layering created by the lapels of the jacket and the flare of the jean bring the layers so integral to this Style.

4. Fabric

The medium-weight firmness of the jeans is very effective, contrasted with the moderately firm texture of the jacket. This is good because The Refined Natural mixes fabric types.

1. Focal Point

This simple lace shift may or may not have a high waist, but the Focal Point could be added with a scarf or belt.

3. Ornament

The fur stole adds texture, ornament, drape, and layering to this lovely textured dress. Even so, additional jewelry or layers would work well.

2. Line

The somewhat close fit of this dress provides the Alpha Line that the Refined Natural needs. The slight extension at the shoulder is also good.

4. Fabric

The textured lace combined with the textured fur is a wonderful textural combination. The fur also offers an extra layer of texture for this style.

1. Focal Point

While the puff jacket of this ensemble comes just to the waist rather than to the raised waist, the cut of the jacket appears to taper in at the Focal Point.

3. Ornament

The cabled sweater works great as both ornament and texture, and the tortoise frame sunglasses carry the color scheme. The red boots distract, however.

2. Line

This ensemble has an overall fitted or Alpha look, even though the sweater is somewhat loose. The horizontal lines of the quilting are wonderful.

4. Fabric

The jacket and sweater work well together, providing layers of different textures. The firmness of the pant helps to compensate for its smooth finish.

1. Focal Point

The Focal Point for the Refined Natural is the high waist. This fitted top may not have the Focal Point, but it can be added easily with a scarf or belt.

3. Ornament

The Refined Natural uses Ornament to add artistry to outfits and also, as is done beautifully here, to add texture, detail and layering.

2. Line

A well-defined Alpha or fitted line is necessary to the Refined Natural look. This design seems to show a defined Alpha line.

4. Fabric

Fabrics for the Refined Natural are best with a firm weave, texture and printed detail. The knitted lace works well as both texture and detail.
