    Default savvy/ dress-conscious

    Dear teachers,

    Would you tell me whether I am right about my interpretation of the expression in bold in the following sentences?

    I've never suspected you to be so dress-conscious.

    The exclusive unisex TATAMI range of shoes for the stylish and discerning, offers smart yet trendy designer Italian shoes, perfected for even the savviest of the dress conscious.

    savvy = marked by practical hardheaded intelligence

    dress-conscious = pretentious/ particular/ choosy about clothing

    Thanks for your efforts.

    Regards,

    V
