You Don’t Have To Wear Color If You Don’t Want To

Don’t let anyone tell you you “should” or “need” to wear more color. It’s perfectly fine (and in fact chic) to only wear grey, black, white, camel, beige, cream or navy.

Always wear what makes you feel authentic and confident.

Don’t ever feel pressured to wear anything that isn’t you…and your style.

Just make sure you keep it interesting and stylish with textures, shapes, fit and decoration.

Style At Any Age

14 Oct

I took some time off last Friday to spend the afternoon with my Mum and Dad in the country. It was my Mum’s birthday. I bought her a pair of white boyfriend jeans and after we’d been to lunch we went home and played around with some ways she could wear them.

She didn’t have any white bottoms in her wardrobe so they added something fresh and different and gave her quite a few new outfits. This was one of the combos we put together.

(While she will wear the jeans cuffed they’re a little bit long and need taking up – but you get the gist)

For anyone wondering whether they are too old to wear…

1. A leather jacket
2. White jeans
3. Boyfriend jeans
4. Sneakers

Mum’s 75!

Mum’s wearing..

How To Cuff Your Jeans

7 Oct

Updating your look doesn’t always mean having to buy new clothes.

It might be, particularly if you’re on a tight budget, that new clothes are not a priority at the moment.  It could even be that you have plenty of clothes already, but you need some fresh ideas.

Clothes can be altered, dyed, reinvented or simply worn differently.

One thing to try is cuffing your jeans.

Play around and try different ways of cuffing to determine what works best for your leg length, shape and style.

Try rolling them neatly.  (You might even want to press them like these ladies below) 

Or just turning them up to expose your ankles, like I’ve done here

Be prepared to make mistakes.  If you leave the house, catch a glimpse of yourself and think this is not working – just don’t do it that way again. Try something different.

It’s when we never experiment and don’t make changes that we stay stuck. Remember,  if nothing changes, nothing changes

Don’t roll your jeans too high that they become three quarter length…which we all know is a length that is not flattering for most.

Wear One Piece Five Ways

2 Oct


When I’m working with a client at her home,  helping her overhaul her wardrobe, our aim is to be left with only clothes that work.  Pieces she loves, pieces that are flattering and pieces that represent her style and the image she wants to portray.

If together we decide something is a keeper my next challenge to my client is that she comes up with at least 5 ways to wear it.

(What often happens when people get bored with their clothes, is that they go out and buy new ones. When in actual fact what they could be doing is playing around with the clothes they have and coming up with new outfits)

Check out these images of French magazine editor, Virginie Mouzat and take some inspiration from what she’s doing with her clothes.   *She may not have the same style as you, but you can still be inspired by how she’s using her clothes.

In all five of the photos Virginie is wearing the same pair of khaki cargo pants BUT not once is she wearing them the same way.

You don’t need to have lots and lots and lots of clothes.  You just need to learn how to wear what you have in several varying combinations.

So next time you reach for that red skirt, blue dress or patterned pants, come up with a way to wear them differently to how you wore it last time.

Challenge yourself to wear each piece you have hanging in your wardrobe at least 5 different ways.
