A Week in The life of Style School Scotland

A WEEK IN THE LIFE OF STYLE SCHOOL SCOTLAND 👍🏼😍👚👖👗 No 2 weeks are the same but they all include the words in the pic – just in case you wonder what we get up to, here’s an average week ………………………….
MONDAY – Lovely start to the week with a meeting to Plan a Forthcoming Fundraising Fashion Show for a local Golf Club. 👍🏼😍👚👖👗Then, Back to our Pop Up Boutique in the afternoon for a quick Seasonal Shop with a couple of customers who love our Collections – every season they buy just a few pieces to complement their existing wardrobe. They love that Captain carries colours & themes through the seasons making it perfect to inject a couple of new pieces each season👍🏼😍👚👖👗
TUESDAY – Wardrobe Workout – we spend a happy morning in a customers wardrobe – she loves to look good & well put together but doesn’t have the time to organise outfits each morning so wanted her life simplified – we weeded out a few garments that no longer work for her and rearranged her existing wardrobe into groups of outfits which she can easily pull out each morning, in sections to fit with each part of her life – she was delighted that she can now easily lay her hands on the perfect outfit for any occasion.👍🏼😍👚👖👗 Next, we had 2 lovely ladies come together for a Colour & Style Image Revamp Session – they both felt stuck in a rut with their style and were despairing of how drab they felt. By the end of the session they were amazed and delighted with how easy it is to revitalise their wardrobes just by injecting some colour combos that worked to lift their skin tone & choosing styles, shapes & fabrics which flatter them – bringing their look bang up to date and taking years off them .👍🏼😍👚👖👗
WEDNESDAY- Fab, Fun Drop In Day catching up with lots of customers – loyal & new, popping in to Our Chic Boutique – they love the Collection for its Classic Styling, Quirky Details, Luxe Fabrics, Sensible Sizing (6-24) & Flattering Styling plus of course the Personal Service & Style Advice 👍🏼😍👚👖👗.
THURSDAY-We get our steps up with a Personal Shopping Session in Glasgow with a lovely lady who puts a wee bit away each week to pay for her annual treat – she just loves the experience -We preshop for her in the morning & then meet her in the afternoon for her trying on session where we fine-tune her outfits. It is wonderful to see her confidence grow as we build her a capsule wardrobe full of colours and styles that flatter her👍🏼😍👚👖👗
FRIDAY- A local firm has employed our services for an Image Management Consultation with a young graduate assisting her to develop her Personal Brand & reflect the Company Image. It’s a really rewarding session helping this young woman move from student to confident, perfectly polished professional.👍🏼😍👚👖👗
We finish off the week with another fun afternoon of drop in customers who love to shop local – always a pleasure, catching up with them all over a cuppa talking all things style & seeing them looking and feeling fabulous 👍🏼😍👚👖👗. Oooh and also in between customers – we begin the planning of our upcoming Train as a Stylist Course 🙂 xx

Get The Look – French Chic

Ever wondered how French women always look so effortlessly chic – what is that “je ne sais quoi?”

It’s a beautifully cut pair of jeans and a comfortable classy top as a base and then we add to it – a timeless jacket, a scarf that flatters…….Comfortable, casual, everyday chic!

The secret is to think of dressing in years, not seasons.

They don’t slavishly follow fashion or buy cheap, throwaway clothes. Instead, they give a nod to the trends but invest in timeless pieces which flatter their own individual silhouette and complement their existing wardrobe!   This effortless, ‘haven’t tried too hard” look actually takes quite a bit of work, but this is where Captain Tortue clothing comes in – they have done it all for you, with several Capsule Collections which mix and match beautifully, add in a couple of fully trained stylists to help you choose what flatters YOU and voila we have Shopping made Simple.  So why not give it a try?

Say goodbye to High Street hassles, parking palavers, changing room traumas and disappointing online shopping results.  Book a free 1-1 Style & Shop appointment at our Studio for personalised service with our French classic chic clothing range with a quirky twist in sizes 6-24.  All in all – an accessible, middle market alternative to the super cheap and the vastly overpriced.  Prices from £25-£110.

The magic of French Chic brought to our Pop Up Boutique.

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.

 

Top Tips to Break Out Of Your Style Rut

IF………style rut blog

YOU Have a Wardrobe Full of Clothes but Nothing to Wear

YOU get dressed in the morning and think “That will do”, instead of “I feel great”

YOU shy away from colour

YOU find Clothes Shopping a Nightmare

THEN YOU NEED OUR STYLE & COLOUR COMBO SOLUTION !!!

Try these quick & easy 1st steps until your Personalised Consultation ………….

  • COLOUR – Do You Know What Colours Suit You? It is the cheapest, quickest & easiest way to update your look – working

those Colour Combos not only make you look younger and brighter, but help you build a Capsule Mix&Match wardrobe, where

You always have something interesting & flattering to wear.

  • ACCESSORISE – Finish Your Outfit with an accessory. Don’t save them just for High Days & Holidays – that little

bit of attention to detail, really makes a difference, pulling your look together, helping with colour combining & giving an

overall polished presentation.  HANDY HINT – Hang up your accessories where you can see them, don’t keep them stuffed in a

drawer – they will give you outfit clues in the morning.

  • 5 MINUTE MAKEUP – If you don’t normally wear makeup, spending just 5 minutes in the morning can really lift your look and

take you from tired to glowing in an instant – a little bit of tinted moisturiser or BB cream, eyelash curlers to give you that wide

awake look, a stroke of mascara, dab of blusher and slick of lip gloss is all it takes.

  • BE BOLD – Surveys have found women wear 20% of their wardrobe, 80% of the time – so try something different, don’t just

reach for the same old jeans and sweat top every day, try a skirt or a pair of coloured trousers occasionally – trying something

new every now and again will breathe new life into your wardrobe.
