All white summer essentials!

As we officially enter into summer, we can safely say the sunshine is here to stay 😉

White is a great summer neutral tone that looks fresh and clean in the sunshine.

Here are my all white wardrobe essentials, they will take you through Summer effortlessly.

 

All white summer essentials:

 

  • White T-shirt/shirt:

The sunshine always adds a beautiful glow to our skin.

Nothing looks better in the sunshine than a chic white shirt or t -shirt.

Wear all white from head to toe, or with summer pastels: pink and lilac, for a stylish look.

 

  • White Jeans: are perfect in the sunshine and go with everything.

There is a myth that white jeans isn’t for everyone; not true.

White jeans is all about the cut and the fit.

When styling our clients, we ensure we decipher your body-shape shape, so you leave with a flatting fabulous pair of jeans…… or two 😉

 

  • White trainers:

Comfort is king!

White trainers are super cool, comfy and versatile in the sunshine.

Wear with your summer dresses, skirts, shorts or jeans for a casual look this season.

 

  • White cotton dress:

For an easy breezy effortless look, a white breathable cotton dress is essential.

Wear with sandals, trainers or your flip flops on those super sunny summer days.

They are perfect on holiday too!

 

  • White shoes:

Are this season’s must have shoe.

If you are looking to update your style this season, white shoes are bang on trend and are a necessary addition to your wardrobe.

Body confidence!

As we transition through different stages of life, our body shape changes and so does our style.

I am passionate about us loving and embracing our body shape irrespective of our size or proportions.

Our hair, eye and skin colours varies and so too does our body shape. Pear, apple, hour glass, athletic…the question is; which one are you and how best can you style it.

 

Here are a few tips on how to dress your body shape confidently:

  • Athletic – Go creative! Steer clear of flat boring plain clothes. Use patterns and textures to add shape to your style.

 

  • Inverted triangle – Let’s see your pins! Show off your long slender legs in knee-length shirts and dresses. Steer clear of maxi dresses and skirts

 

  • Hourglass – Keep your clothes fitted. Make sure you don’t hide your gorgeous curves under baggy clothes, show it off in tailored sculptured pieces.

 

  • Pear shape – It’s all about your waist. A belt is a key accessory in your wardrobe. Use it to accentuate and flatter your fabulous body shape.

 

  • Apple shape – Show off your gorgeous décolletage! Whether its a v neck or round neck, show your neckline and avoid polo necks and high neck tops and dresses.

How to look slimmer in your clothes this year!

Happy New Year!

If you are anything like the most of us, you overindulged over the festive period. Your clothes feel a little snug, and you have great plans to  get fit and healthy in 2012.

6 Amazing Style tips to help you look slim and trim this year:

1:Overly baggy clothes make you look bigger than you are. Tailored, well-fitted clothes make you look sleek and well groomed!

2:Steer clear of colour blocking! Keep continuity of colour ie: wear the same colour top, bottoms and shoes. This will elongate your figure

3:To appear trimmer, avoid wearing pleated clothing! They bulk you up and add extra volume.

4:Wear heels; they lengthen your legs! Heels as small as 2 inches; make you look leaner and improves your body posture.

5:Avoid wearing horizontal lines; they widen your proportions! Opt for simple, plain or linear lines.

6:Large bold prints magnify! Go for small delicate prints.
