Style & Nutrition

It’s hard to find time to self-motivate at the start of a new year…’busyness’ is becoming so prevalent in today’s society.  Many don't know that the greatest enemy of good thinking is ‘busyness?’.  We must find the time to think and learn, to make those crucial steps to improve our health and wellbeing from the inside and from the outside.  We spend £125 servicing our cars each year, well what about spending it on a body MOT at our Wimbledon Style & Nutrition event at HDV Cannizaro House on Sunday 28th January? Link to tickets Tickets include lunch and a fabulous goody bag. Maybe you had a binge-happy Christmas, overdoing the mulled wine, overloading on mince pies and resorting...

Best Buys Blanket Cape

Ihave a little secret to share.  My absolute must-have this Winter is the blanket cape.  You can forget about stuffing arms into tight jackets, overheating, creasing your silk blouse or ruining the all important aesthetics of your outfit.  The layering of each piece, the mix of textures and colours, as well allowing each item to show off and have a moment to shine is crucial.  It’s artistic, in fact, the outfit itself becomes a piece of art…actually let’s be brutal, fashion IS art.  The blanket cape is the ultimate ‘frame’ to your artwork.  I’ve selected my favourite blanket capes for you…so it’s time to sell on last year’s coats, make room in your wardrobe and get shopping....

My style guide The Maxi Dress

It’s all about the maxi dress this season, such a major trend to pin your sartorial hopes on, especially if you need to channel easy-chic…when you want to look like you’ve tried hard, without trying hard, at all, and I’m genuinely NOT joking.  It’s the ultimate stylist tip, the mega maxi dress, but the trick is in the shape and colour you choose, yet it’s not always as easy as it seems. It’s one of the greatest debates and I frequently find myself squashing objections. Some think it’s not for the ‘petite’, too overdressed for the office and certainly a no-no for weekend wear.  BUT the maxi can be ALL of these things to you, and more – it’s an extreme...

How to style colour

Ifrequently come across the same fears and anxieties from women who are afraid of colour and struggle to style it in their day to day life.  Worries soar with the arrival of babies and the ensuing toddler years as your individual shape changes and the time you had to think about yourself transitions onto others. Individual style and your unique identity is challenged, you can’t wear half your wardrobe, pieces become uncomfortable, restrictive and quite frankly you'd rather just re-wear yesterdays outfit which handily lies by the side of your bed.  Finding the time and money to go shopping appears to be a thing of the past, you just want to get OUT THE DOOR, on time...

My wonder weapons

They say that having the appearance of an even skin tone is key in female attraction.  As a personal stylist, I believe the easiest way to create a youthful glow is by wearing the right colours to harmonise with your skin tone, dragging it out of the dark and into luminous life!! Many of us don’t understand which colours and what type of hues suit our skin tone so stay safe and chain ourselves to neutral options such as black, grey, beige, navy and white. Ladies, (and gentlemen) you may like black and grey, but a lot of the time they don't like you. It’s vital to choose colours that bring a tint to your cheeks, reduce the appearance...

Will you bare your bralette?

bralette style
Does underwear as outerwear make you run for the hills? Will you bare your bralette or keep it slightly more under wraps, a few lace edges peeping out to show off your feminine side? (remembering to steer clear of the peep show look of course…) It could be seen as a trend for the brave – wearing them on top of T’s or on their own (a la Kendall and Cara) , but my tip for feminine appeal without salacious overload is to layer under a lace top, blazer or shirt.  It softens and updates the popular androgynous boyfriend jean/masculine shirt look too. If you need extra support, like me wink wink, my reco is to layer the bralette...
