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...

5 ways to wear a slip dress

The slip dress; it’s never really been ‘out of vogue’ since its Kate Moss heyday back in the 90’s, but is it truly back ‘in’ fashion?  Fortunately, todays slip-styling options are plentiful, layering over, under, any which way, dress it up, dress it down, stripes, fluff and simple t’s.  Now we aren’t all glamazonian models – so the burning question is, can the slip dress suit the bigger busted, more regular gals? I set out to find my perfect slip dress… My slip dress style requirements: Stretch silk for comfort Measured cup size Secure support Eye popping colours Flattering lengths The journey was fraught with challenges; trying to avoid becoming a boudoir babe and reeling against the hooker look,...

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...
