Fashion Week Inspiration

Be inspired by London Fashion Week and step out in your favorite feel-good frocks. You can walk your own catwalk everyday if you choose wisely and put in a little extra effort. You’re worth it and you’ll feel FABULOUS!

Make the sun shine in your wardrobe on a dull, dreary day. Do whatever it takes to put a skip in your step, whether it’s a bright colour, a gorgeous fitted jacket, a dynamic dress, or super flattering jeans that fit just right.

Are you running errands, attending school meetings, back to work, volunteering or staying home and just taking time for yourself? Whatever you’re up to this week, you can still feel gorgeous by stepping up your game with a few basic wardrobe essentials.

Fashion Fundamentals

A Comfortable T-shirt

Never underestimate a great t-shirt. They are great layering pieces. A soft long-sleeve tee is perfect under an open cardigan. Both Mint Velvet, Jigsaw and Mango have excellent choices.

You can find this colourful wardrobe basic virtually everywhere and it’s a crucial element to your wardrobe. You may need to revamp your collection if your tees are worn or dis-coloured. Feeling stylish is all about being polished but making it look effortless!

The Cardigan

Every girl should have 3-4 interchangeable cardigans. You could choose a knit, jersey, or cotton version. Use them to add dimension to your ensemble by layering a silk top or your basic tee underneath.

Look for ones without buttons if you’re planning on showing off your shirt or wearing a long pendant necklace.

A cardigan is also very useful to neutralize a bright colour or pattern. Prints are fun, but too much of a good thing can get in the way of your look. By throwing on that extra layer, you can still enjoy your favourite florals, but your look will be softer. If you’re wearing a tapered jean or trouser, choose a cardigan that is light weight, loose fitting and falls below the belt and pockets. By wearing a longer top, you can pull off a higher heel and look more chic and elegant.

The Day Dress

Let’s have lunch! Show-stopping looks from Mango, Reiss, Mint Velvet, Zara, and French Connection are on the radar for work, play or lunching with the ladies. Their collections are effortlessly cool and casual.

When shopping for the perfect versatile day dress, hunt for year round fabrics and patterns that can be layered under a cardigan or a jacket. If you’re going from day to night, be sure the fabric can be dressed up. Silks and jerseys are perfect choices.

By adding a leather or a black tailored jacket and altering your footwear, you take your day dress to the dining room.

 

Zara

 

The Cool Weather Jacket

Sometimes when you are going from one thing to another, or on the school run, no one ever sees your brilliant ensemble underneath. They just notice your jacket. LOVE your jacket…it’s one of your Investment Pieces (think cost per wear).

Every time you put on that outer layer, work it and love it. You may need a couple of great jackets based around the contents of your wardrobe. If you tend to wear longer pieces, your jacket should go at least to your thigh.

A shorter jacket is great for jeans, short skirts and trousers, but be sure your cardigan or jumper doesn’t fall too far below the jacket hem. With a shorter jacket, your shirt can peek out a bit, but it must look intentional, proportional and coordinate with the line.

 

Mint Velvet

 

 

Trend Alert

“Supersize Me”

Another trend this season is “oversized everything”. Venture out with caution when tackling this comfortable trend. Remember only one super trendy article of clothing should be worn at a time.

Also, be careful with proportion on this trend. If you’re petite, an oversized coat or jumper can swallow your small frame. Taller frames can carry this trend better, but still be wary.

Work Out Wear

Being Fit and Fabulous!

We can’t forget our exercise gear. It’s a forgotten fashion staple (like lingerie can be). Get your 30 minutes of cardio in with Sweaty Betty, Nike, Gap Body, or Stella McCartney exercise wear.

The key is to feel good about yourself when you’re sweating and working hard. Look for fun colours and polished details to add a feminine edge.

Also, a few new items for your workout will inspire you to get up and going!

Use it or Lose it!

Don’t hide your clothes in your closet! Actually WEAR your statement pieces.

Since your basics are simple and comfortable, you can wear them to Waitrose or Starbucks. You can wear them at your desk buried in paperwork and you can wear them at home doing homework with the kids.

Everyone is allowed a few cooking, gardening, dog walking items. Only a few though! If most of your wardrobe falls into this category, it’s time to edit them out. Charity shop… here you come!

Think about the ROI, “return on investment”. The ROI is how you feel about yourself and how you are perceived. You only have one chance to make a great first impression. If it’s time to recreate your look, this is only the beginning…

It’s February…Embrace Red!

February is always perfect timing for this passionate hue. If you’re not quite ready for spring’s pastel palate, red is still current and fresh, especially when paired with the stark contrast of black and white.

  • Wear your jeans with a colourful jumper and boots
  • Go into London and window shop the latest catwalk trends
  • Wear an asymmetrical skirt with black opaque tights and booties
  • Winter floral patterns – keep them coming!
  • Blue is a great transition piece … especially blue grey, cornflower blue, and navy
  • Amp up your playlist! There’s nothing like endorphins to keep us going. Good tunes start your day off with a bang and will put a skip in your step all day long!
  • Splash your face with ice cold water when you wake up and remember your vitamin D!

It’s almost time for Spring Fever. Be ready by looking and feeling your best!

Transition into Spring/Summer 2013

Fashion can be confusing. The fashion magazines, websites and shops all screaming S/S ’13 while the reality is that it’s January, and it’s cold.

However, by observing the catwalk trends of S/S ’13, you can shop for transition items or accessories to wear now and also later as it warms up.  These key pieces will carry you into the new season while still keeping you warm and on-trend.

Key Pieces To Wear Now And Later

White, White And More White

Think pure, clean and crisp!  After a season of dark drama, it’s time to lighten up.  Look for white shirts, white knits, and white lace – right now!

Play up this contrast trend by combining your white top with a black cardigan or jacket.  Pull out those opaque tights and tall boots to add warmth to your S/S outfits.  You can still shop for the “New Arrivals” by winterising your choices.

Stripes With Stride

Yes, your heard right… stripes are in.  Careful patterns of white and black horizontal and vertical lines are totally trendy and current.

If you’d like to steer clear of stripes on the body, it’s time to accessorize with this playful trend. Try adding a scarf or a handbag to update your outfits.

Happy New Year!

2013 is more about re-discovering your true self rather than resolutions. The New Year shouldn’t always be about completely transforming, but more about loving who you are and how to enhance and look your absolute best.

What is a makeover? It’s not as much about change, but more about working with what you have. Whether your focus is your wardrobe, your hair, your fitness level, your diet or your lifestyle, it’s time to work with your fundamental qualities and add to them. By working with your assets, your core values and your interests, you’ll feel fresh and invigorated!

Where should you begin?

 

  • Get a new haircut.
  • Embrace your wardrobe and focus on figure flattering basics
  • Wear comfortable shoes
  • Buy a new pair of trainers and workout wear
  • Buy transition items in the sales that will take you from A/W into Spring 13
  • Try to get a bra fitting every year plus embrace shape wear
  • Clean out your make-up bag and buy a few new colours
  • Analyze diet, cupboard and menu options, and then make healthy choices
  • Take a class on the weekend or during your free time – try something new!

It’s time to pay attention to your wardrobe and making that fabulous first impression!

Christmas Day Chic!

Christmas Day is about being comfortable and relaxed, while looking fabulous so that the focus can be on others and the joy of giving.

Think “smart casual” with a polished, yet playful edge. Have fun with bright knits and cosy textures. Pair your jumper with classic trousers or a skirt, a great pair of booties, and a warm wool coat with a faux fur collar for a look that is both classic and polished.

If you are entertaining on Christmas Day, look for colour or go for a slightly embellished jumper, dress or skirt. A touch of lace will also work well. But keep it simple – just a bit of sparkle will be enough to celebrate this special day!

If you’re planning to stay at home with family, look for warm, stylish and relaxed options. A great look that is versatile for family, friends, the local pub, or a drop by from unexpected guests is an embellished skirt paired with a colourful jumper.

If you prefer trousers, a chic option is straight leg black trousers or a patterned trouser with a solid top.

Silent Night!

The Splendour Of Christmas Eve

Now’s the time to start shopping to get your Christmas Eve outfit together so it’s not a last minute panic to find something suitable.

Whether you’re attending a church service, celebrating with friends or staying home with family, you’ll want to spend Christmas Eve in style. It’s about being chic yet comfortable.

This special evening is about feeling warm and relaxed. Aim to look festive while playing with holiday colour and a little sparkle.  Simple trousers, a classic dress or a skirt paired with an elegant jumper or blouse is ideal for a church service followed by dinner, or for a fun night out.

Bring a little colour into your evening look by playing with burgundy, deep purple, navy, emerald green, ruby red, and even turquoise.  Winter white is also a classy and beautiful option for Christmas Eve.

Remember to keep accessories to a minimum, especially if you’re wearing white.  Less is more… bring out the elegant simplicity of the fabulous fabric and silhouette.

Cover up with a long wool coat or a faux fur mid-length jacket.  Also, make sure your shoes are comfortable. It may be a long night visiting friends and family, exchanging gifts, or being out on the town.

Some holiday promotions and sales have already begun.  Take advantage of the incredible savings – by finding a deal, you can afford to splurge a little on yourself while shopping for others!  Act quickly though because inventory is low at this time of year and sizes sell out quickly. Some retailers are offering at least 20% off right now.  It’s going to be cold for a while, so it’s time to stock up on all your winter essentials.

Just Jumpers

As the weather gets really cold, cosy knits are the hot topic for your shopping list. Casual or dressy, it’s always about style.

When it comes to knitwear, it’s not only about the colour, it’s also about the feel and texture of the jumper. Feel the texture and the weave. If you have sensitive skin, be wary of lambswool, merino wool, angora, mohair and anything that is 100% wool.

Blends of fibres are generally an excellent option when you’re seeking comfort and cosiness. Look for a percentage of wool mixed with cotton or a synthetic fibre like viscose or polyamide. Blends are often machine or hand washable… brilliant for keeping cleaning costs down.

Jumpers come in all price bands – favourite jumpers can be found at M&S, Banana Republic, The Gap, Zara, H&M, Mint Velvet and Uniqlo.

If you’re in love with a jumper that’s a bit itchy, simply layer a paper-thin long sleeve tee or polo neck underneath. Basic black, navy and grey jumpers are all investment pieces! If you find one that is a perfect fit for a reasonable price, there’s no need to splurge on premium designer brands. Save your money for something that truly stands out like a fun statement skirt or a fabulous jacket.

Style and fit are crucial elements to finding your perfect jumper. There’s more than one ideal silhouette depending on what you’re wearing on your bottom half.

The Classic Knit

If you’re wearing a flared trouser or a full midi, maxi, or A-line skirt, your jumper or cardigan should be fitted and fall at your waist or just below.

Tunics And Long Cardigans

Wear a long tunic sweater or cardigan with tapered trousers and be sure it covers your bum if you’re wearing leggings. This style is probably the most practical and comfortable because tunics and long cardis are normally more generous and forgiving.

Finally, make your jumper work with your figure. Be careful with bold prints, patterns, and cable knitwear (ie. the classic Christmas jumper!). All detailing can add volume on top.

In order to create a sleek slim silhouette, stick with a thin weave and solid or block colouring. You’ll be cosy and chic all winter long!

Stay warm!

The Weekend Wishlist

It’s All About The Little Black Dress

When in doubt, you can never go wrong with a classic LBD. Hit the high street this weekend for an updated spin on an absolute classic.

There’s a huge variety of silhouettes from which to choose, so take advantage of the incredible options and go with what works best for you and your frame.

The LBD Bodyshape Guide

If you are curvy, look for round, scoop, sweetheart, cowl or draped boat necklines. Your LBD should fit your hips and you may need a tailor to alter the shoulder, bust and waist areas.

Semi-fitted silhouettes look wonderful on shapely figures.

More angular body types suit square, V-neck, polo neck or asymmetrical necklines. Make sure the shoulders fit and you may need to tailor the hips and sometimes the bottom and thigh areas.

Shift dresses, drop-waist, and draping styles work best on angular body types.

It’s all about the number of darts and side seams.  The more darts, the more your waist is emphasized.

A-line and trapeze dresses look good on angular bodyshapes and can also work well for bottom heavy bodyshapes because the hemline falls away from the legs and creates the illusion of a slimmer line.

Wrap dresses are flattering for most figures but are better if you have a defined waist. If your body type is more angular, try a fake wrap dress where the fabric overlaps or fans at the waist to create an illusion of a waist or wrap style.

A Princess Line can be extremely flattering. The three panels give the illusion of height and, if block colouring is used, the line can be incredibly slimming, especially if the outside panels are a darker colour and the center panel is lighter or brighter.

Want to create the illusion of a smaller bum? Try a 50’s style dress that skims over your hips or go for a halter neck with a little embellishment.  The added sparkle takes the attention away from the bottom.

The Art Of Accessorizing

Accessories make an outfit. Style up your basics with a few key pieces!

It’s time to turn up the volume during the party season and have fun with the best accessories on offer. On trend accessories are everywhere this winter, but it sometimes takes an event or a special affair to rock the latest adornments. Now that we’re approaching party season, have fun upping the style stakes!

You can take a simple silhouette and and make it current, stylish and uniquely your own.

Take a LBD or a jumper in a neutral colour (a couple of your key investment pieces) and change your classic look by adding a few key accessories.

The “How To Guide To Accessorizing” With Attitude!

1. Start with a solid blank canvas: eg. dark denim, trousers, a black jacket, jumper, cardigan, a silk blouse…

2. Work with what looks flattering on you. Determine what trend or look you’re going for.

3. Look at the cut of your outfit. Does it have a plunging neckline, a polo neck, long sleeves, or is it sleeveless? Are you going to wear your hair up or down? Do you have short or long hair?

If you are wearing sequins, metallics, or beaded work, your accessories should work with your look and not compete with it.

4. There is a lot to think about, but always remember “less is more”. Pick one or two trends and statement pieces that will reflect how you want to look. Do you want to channel classic, chic, glam, retro, equestrian, preppy or gothic?

If you’re wearing a low neckline or need an accent of colour along the chest, try adding a fabulous necklace.

If it’s a true statement piece, go light on the earrings. Have fun matching your earrings to your neck piece, but try to be more creative than wearing “a matching set” which can look too contrived. It’s a good idea to keep within the same metal group unless you’re going for an intentional mix of gold and silver.

Once you’ve determined that your metals are working together, you can coordinate them into your other accessories.

A statement cocktail ring or a chic bracelet (not both on the same time) is a must have.

Whichever statement piece you choose, it should work with your earrings, necklace, handbag and shoes.

If your dress is already sparkly, go for a patent clutch to play off the shine. Avoid having too much embellishment on your handbag so that it doesn’t compete with your fabulous dress.

 

Optional accessory: scarf or wrap

Banana Republic

Only have two to three maximum standout pieces. Otherwise you’ll blend into the Christmas tree you’re standing next to.

There’s a difference between a true statement piece and a little bit of sparkle. Your shoes may have a little glitter on the heel, but it’s special and discreet.

You can still enjoy a fun necklace, clutch and cocktail ring. It’s pretty much a judgment call and what you feel comfortable with.

All Over Trends:

Pick one or two trendy pieces at a time. Sidestep wearing an equestrian look head to toe unless you’ve come from the barn and have mud on your boots!

The same concept should be applied to all trends. If you go “all over Goth”, you’ll look like the “Girl with the Dragon Tattoo”.

Also, if you’re going for retro, be careful not to look too much like you stepped out of the set of “Mad Men”. Just pick a few trendy pieces and you’ll stay current and fabulous.

Don’t try to be perfect, just have fun!

“Style is what we say about ourselves without ever opening our mouths.”
