Winter Fashion Trends 2013

Winter Fashion Trends 2013 Autumn has struck and sadly we need to pack away our summer frocks and get ready to layer up with some fabulous must have pieces that will take us through to winter. With every change of season fashion becomes a history lesson: always learning from the past while looking to the future. Forecasting coming trends helps inform our choices when we go to buy. What will be seasonal, what will last, what will be capturing our attention and inspiring our tastes 6 months or a year from now?   I like to check out the new and upcoming trends that will take us through

Spring Fashion Finds

Spring Fashion Finds

Spring Fashion Trends 2012 With every season it is best to pick out the trends which can easily translate to your wardrobe, choosing garments that will enhance your own unique style and will work with existing pieces in your wardrobe. I don’t believe that any of us should jump in boots and all and fall for every fashion trend that comes along. It should be a process of selection. It should be a process of making a personal edit, and breaking it down to adapt it to your liking and taste. What looks great on your best friend may look

Style your look with great accessories

Style your look with great accessories

Putting on clothes is one thing, but styling an outfit is a whole other thing totally! I do believe in some cases it’s not what you wear but how you wear it. Take a plain T or tank for instance, add a scarf, a necklace or perhaps a blazer and you have totally changed the look of what could have or would have been a very plain outfit. Styling ourselves is a very personal affair and like art can be quite subjective. I have met many women who do not like to accessorise for two reasons; either they don’t know

Body Shapes

Body Shapes

Know your body shape Buying clothes can be a challenge but if you are not exactly sure about what type of garments to buy for your body shape then shopping becomes even more difficult. I have created illustrations of the the six body shapes with some guide lines for you to follow. Horizontal body proportion is the relationship between your bust, waist and hip measurements. This method for analysing the body was the first to be used in figure and style assessment. Every aspect of figure and style analysis is based on balance and proportion. If one part of the body

How to dress like a grown up

How to dress like a grown up

Age appropriate dressing for the fifty plus There are a lot of women in their Forties who are just as fearful of not dressing  “age appropriate” and looking like mutton dressed up as lamb as those in their Fifties and beyond. Admittedly, we are aging beautifully thanks to great skincare, makeup, and attitude, but the real problem lies in the delicate balancing act of not dressing like either our mothers or our daughters. Anyone else know what I’m talking about? It all comes down to being self-aware and realising that you might be stuck in a time warp, your look

This goes with that.

This goes with that.

This goes with that!    When combining prints and patterns never mix three together unless they are of similar colour and theme and one is more dominant than the other two. Ensure all items of clothing are going to the same place eg, an outfit of a dark tailored suit, sequined low cut top, heavy shoes and no makeup will look out of sync. You want your total look to speak the same language.  Fabrics of like quality work well together, smooth with smooth, texture with texture.  Work around your core colours, if you have a warm complexion select chocolates

A budget-conscious guide to updating your winter wardrobe

With daylight savings behind us and the temps lowering, it is time to consider what to wear this autumn/winter. I had a massive cull last year and tossed a suitcase full of clothes out. Things like, tired and worn out coats and boots, along with some knits that were also looking worse for wear.

Take a look at how you

What your clothes say about you?

What your clothes say about you?

What your clothes say about you? You are your brand and your clothes are your advertisement. Have you ever looked backed on some of the outfits or hairstyles you have worn, thinking you were all that? I know I have! It bothers me to see people still wearing that same unflattering clothing and sending a bad image message, especially when it is so easy to update your look. Did you know that a poor image can ruin your reputation in less than five seconds? Studies have shown that our appearance accounts for more than half of people’s first impression of
