Online Styling

Our virtual styling services rocketed in lockdown! I am still busy styling clients remotely now and I envisage this going forward.

3 C’s of Dressing for #WFH

With the chancellor’s budget announcement last month, it looks like most of us will be working from home until September at the earliest.

Here are 3C’s of styling to consider when dress for working from home:

Colour. Comfort. Confidence!

  • Colour! Styling always starts with Colour. I love wearing happy cheery and uplifting colours and I encourage my clients to embrace colour too. 😉 God knows we need it with over a year in this pandemic.
  • Comfort is all about the cut and texture of the fabric. Breathable natural fabrics like wool, cotton, cashmere and silk are great, especially if you perspire a lot.  I also ensure the clothes I select for myself and clients flatter the body shape. So, I feel super comfortable wearing it from morning to night and my clients do too.
  • Confidence! It starts and ends with confidence for me and I try to impart that in my clients too. It’s so important to adorn our bodies in clothes that enable us to exude confidence inside out. If it doesn’t make me feel good, I won’t wear it and certainly won’t select it for my clients either. Confidence is everything!

I’ve spent hours Online Styling clients for their working-from-home clothes and thankfully they are not joggers or leggings. 😉

So, the next time you are thinking of what to buy or wear working from home, remember the 3’Cs:

Colour. Comfort. Confidence!

5 Festive Dresses

Hello there,

Hope you are keeping warm in one of the coldest autumns we’ve had in years!

We are fast approaching Christmas, and now is a great time to get your festive outfits ready so you are fully prepared for those social events.

Here are my top 5 festive dresses that will see you through all Christmas and New year festivities:

1. Day Dress

There is so much to do in the run up to Christmas, from school plays, carol services to Christmas shopping. A flattering day dress is the perfect antidote for such busy days.

Go for a casual knitted dress during the day. They are super versatile and comfortable. You can dress them down in flat boots as you run around doing your Christmas shopping and dress them up in heeled boots for smarter evening events. Either way you’ll look effortlessly stylish and feel warm in a knitted day dress.

2. Christmas Day Dress

Your Christmas day dress serves many purposes! It needs to be comfortable, special and practical. Avoid bellowing flute sleeves, we don’t want the gravy all over you. Christmas day is a long day, so something easy to wear and expandable is ideal.

A soft velvet dress with a stretchy waste is perfect to ensure you feel special capturing precious moments with your family, and comfortable once you’ve over indulged in all those delicious festive delicacies.

3. Party Dress.

This dress must me fun! A sparkly dress with sequin or glitter is perfect. It may sound like a dress for a 5-year-old girl, but every woman irrespective of her age deserves to have fun with her clothes and feel youthful. Steer clear of prints and anything too dark and dreary, remember Its a party! 😉

4. Drinks, Cocktail and Dinner Dress

Go elegant for festive drinks, cocktails and dinner. Satins, silk, lace and velvet are luxe fabrics that ooze sophistication and elegance. Opt for midi or knee length dresses to show off those pins sensually.

5. Desk to Dinner Party Dress

This season is all about, suiting and separates. Be brave in a tailored suit or chic jumpsuit. Dare to be unconventional!

*With so much to do in the run up to Christmas, we’d like to take the stress of deciding what to wear off your hands by offering you a selection of 5 festive dresses for just £100.
