Are Your Clothes Highlighting What You Want Them To?

24 Nov

Before you make a decision on an outfit or a new purchase, have a good head to toe look in the mirror and think about what is being highlighted and then next, decide whether that is the area you want featured.

A belt can play up a waist, a sleeve might accentuate an arm, the length of pants may lengthen (or shorten) your leg, a shoe may draw attention to (or away from) the ankles and as in the case of the image above, the position of a pattern, pocket, seam or shape can *spotlight an area. (Which is absolutely fine, if that’s what you want to achieve)

In the photo above my eye is instantly drawn to the hip area and in the images below the first thing I notice is the woman’s beautiful face.  (I’m sure this also has something to do with the red lips)

You can notice the **effect the diamond on the dress has by comparing the three outfits.

*Fabric, and how it’s cut, can also have this effect – particularly if it’s shiny.

**The effect the diamond is having on the outfit (ie accentuating the curve through the hip area), may well be exactly what the wearer is wanting to achieve.

How To Wear Leopard Print

26 Sep

I know that it’s not everyone’s cup of tea – a few of my clients have told me they feel it’s “old lady”, “frumpy” or “flashy” – but I’m mad about leopard print.  In fact, along with stripes, leopard is pretty much the only pattern I wear. .

If you’ve been thinking you’d like to give leopard a go, but you’re not sure how to wear it, here’s a few tips…

  • Opt for a flattering size and shade for you and your body shape
  • If you’re concerned about overload, keep it fairly simple and minimal – wear no more than one piece at a time. (perhaps an accessory rather than an item of clothing).
  • Treat it like it’s a neutral color
  • Try clashing it with other classic patterns, like stripes or checks

From my Instagram, below are some of the ways I’ve worn the leopard pieces in my wardrobe…

How Sixty Looked In The Fifties And How It Looks Today

28 Jul

The photo above is an example of how 60 year old women dressed in the 1950’s.

According to More Magazine,

“Styles were shapeless, colors were drab, and the choices were ridiculously limited. Hats kept that wash-and-set ’do in place.”

In 2016, they dress like this (Well at least these 60ish year old’s do)

Fashions On The Field

7 Nov

What a great story…

Emily’s Mum made the beautiful navy blue dress she wore on Oaks Day in the Fashion’s on Field competition, inspired by a dress she saw on Pinterest.

It just goes to show, you don’t need to wear fancy designer clothes to look stylish. You just need to know what suits you and what fits you properly.

*The other part of the story is that, as part of her prize, Emily was given a fancy new car (Lexus) to drive for 12 months and just last weekend the old car she’d had since she was 18, died.

You can read all about Emily and her lovely dress here

(Emily went on to take out the overhaul competition on Thursday)

*Note Emily’s bag and shoes don’t match.   READ: Matchy Matchy here
