Summer Trends 2011

Here is a snapshot of a few of this Summers Key Trends and how to make them work for you.

COLOUR BLOCKING

  • Keep colours not in your palette, away from your face – try coloured trousers or skirts.
  • If you are not brave enough to wear head to toe colour, add pops of colour with accessories – bold bags, necklaces and scarves will ensure you look on trend.
  • To keep your look chic – select your best neutral and team it with one colourful piece.

WHITE a summer staple – A Friend or Foe?

  • A fab, fresh look for spring. But remember, pure white close to the face is not flattering for all – it can leave you looking washed out.
  • Remember, light colours will draw attention and widen, so be careful on which parts of your body you wear them to create balance.

THE NEW NAUTICAL- This is a classic look that comes around each spring.

  • This year bring it up to date by introducing new colours into the mix such as corals, turquoises and all shades of green.
  • Also, try mixing spots and stripes.
  • Just make sure, you think about where you wear your horizontal stripes.Here is a snapshot of a few of this Summers Key Trends and how to make them work for you.COLOUR BLOCKING

Sales Shopping

Integro loves………..A Bargain

However, all that glitters is not gold , so here are our top tips for successful sales shopping.

THINK, would you have bought this if it was full price – if not, why not?  If the answer is just because it was outwith your budget, otherwise it is perfect, then go for it and enjoy, but don’t make the mistake of buying something just because it is cheap.  Spending £10 on something you will never wear, is throwing your money away.

Shop for your wardrobe and lifestyle – where does this garment fit into your wardrobe?  If you get it home and then have to buy something new to wear with it, it’s not a bargain.

Don’t let an overenthusiastic sales assistant talk you into clearing her shelves for her.

Keeping this in mind, there are some fantastic reductions out there.  This is a great time to acquire classic, quality pieces at a fraction of the price and also some on trend pieces to keep your look updated.

Don’t lose your head in the bargain frenzy of the sales.

Focus on our Successful Dressing  Mantra :

Is it a good colour for me? Does it flatter my bodyshape? Is it my style?

Happy Shopping.
