New Year, New You with our 5 Steps to Fabulous Programme!

Would you like to make 2018 the Year you stop feeling drab and dowdy?  Let’s turn all those negative thoughts into positive action and to get you started, we’ve designed our Five Steps to Fabulous Programme – whether you choose to do one step each day or one a week, we are sure the frequency will grow along with your confidence.  It’s time to break out of that Style Rut!5 steps to fabulous

STEP 1 Colour Combining – wearing colour with a neutral ie black is a safe start, but we want you to challenge yourself and take it one step further, by wearing colour with colour. It can take years off you, as well as giving your Wardrobe a Wow and make you feel Fabulous – try it and see.  Here are some suggestions, Berry with Blush Pink or Red or even Coral  OR  Cobalt Blue with Emerald Green or Purple or Orange.…as long as you stick to the same Colour Family ie cool or warm, it will work and the possibilities are endless.

STEP 2 Mix & Match – It’s easy to get stuck in a rut of wearing the same top with the same bottoms and for this to become a lazy (not to mention boring) go to outfit.  To avoid this happening this year in your wardrobe, separate those fail safe combos and experiment with new style formulas to feel fantastic.  So if you only ever wear that scarf with that jumper – mix it up, would it look good with a necklace instead or layered with a blouse underneath? Pick out one colour from a pattern and repeat that accent throughout your outfit for a fresh look.

STEP 3 Challenge Yourself –  Has your Signature Style become staid? If you only ever wear black trousers to work, why not move out of your comfort zone and try wearing a skirt or dress to work – thick tights and boots can work wonders if you don’t love your legs.  By investing a little extra effort and time in your appearance, we promise you will feel more confident and the compliments will flow.

STEP 4 Focus on the Positive – We challenge you to identify your best feature (we all have at least one!!!) and show it off.  Choose garments and accessories to flaunt your favourite features – ie  Great Legs – don’t hide them under a pair of wide leg trousers. Neat Waist- cinch it in. Lovely smiley face – wear a fab necklace to draw people up to you.  Bonus Boost – they will be so busy looking at your best bits, nobody will notice the bits you don’t love.

STEP 5 Work that Wardrobe – Make your wardrobe really work for you this year.  To make your life simple, only keep things that fit you and you can easily wear most days, hanging in there.  If it doesn’t fit you or your lifestyle, its got to go.  When  you can easliy see what your options are, you can identify gaps and build outfits with ease.
