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.

Clever Holiday Packing

Planning an escape to warmer climes? Then you may well be re-acquainting yourselves with your summer wardrobe and although it is always exciting rediscovering old favourites which have been hibernating over the chilly winter months, you might also feel overwhelmed by the trauma of wondering how you can fit all that into the airlines baggage restrictions!!  holiday packing

Here is a sample capsule wardrobe, to give you over 30 different looks out of a few key pieces, saving you excess baggage charges, in fact we promise you could fit all of this into hand luggage 🙂

The key to the Capsule Wardrobe is knowing your colour pattern so all your best colours mix and match effortlessly.  Choose a couple of neutral colours as a base and then add accents. Book a Colour Confidence Consultation to find out YOUR Colour pattern.

  • Linen trousers or coloured Capri/cigarette pants – always chic (even when you haven’t got round to leg waxing or fake tanning!) & versatile. Choose a pair in one of this season’s key colours – try cobalt blue, orange or floral to bring your wardrobe bang up to date J
  • Skirt – ensure you choose a style & fabric that flatters your bodyshape & for those of you who have had a consultation, remember to think where the hemline cuts.
  • Dress – whether you choose a shirtdress, a tunic style or a wrap – don’t just see this as a stand alone piece – remember your layering – over trousers, vest tops, shirts or under cardis, pashminas.  Don’t forget different shoes & accessories will maximise this one garment!
  • Pashmina/Wrap – Our top tip for the summer. There are loads of these around in fab summer colours and prints.  Incredibly flexible, inexpensive failsafe with many uses, here are just a few

As a scarf ( tied to suit your bodyshape, bounce your colours and pull an outfit together)

As a shrug ( to cover up those bingo wings, whilst keeping you cosy and looking chic)

As a belt (slung to enhance your bodyshape),

As a skirt(tie at a length most flattering to you)

As a sarong (looks great over swimwear)

Bonus points are – a blanket for those long journeys, it’s easy to pack and if rolled correctly takes up no packing space!

  • Vest tops – buy several in your accent colours – an inexpensive, quick & easy way to add colour & impact to your summer wardrobe.  Try layering them to give you optimum variety.
  • Shoes – For a daytime casual look there is a wide choice of flip flops or gladiator sandals. Try a pair of wedges, they can carry you from day in to night if chosen wisely.  Choose either a neutral colour (nude are great for lengthening the legs!) for maximum wearability or to get on trend, make a statement with a bright block or even multi coloured  pair.
  • Swimwear – If the thought of de-layering to this level is giving you sleepless nights, let us help you. As masters of optical illusion, we can give you all the advice you need about the most flattering cuts, patterns and colours for each and every one of you.  Pssst – if you feel you have an urgent swimwear dilemma – drop us an email or post us a comment on facebook and we will do our best to help.
  • Accessories – As all of you who knows us are aware, we are major accessory fans.  An absolutely fabulous way to expand your capsule wardrobe even further.
