Fashion versus Style!

As a Personal Stylist, I am an avid believer that style trumps fashion.  And so with London Fashion week 2019 in full swing, I’d love to shed some light on the differences between fashion and style.

  • Fashion is fleeting. Style is timeless.
  • Fashion says wear what’s on trend (even if it doesn’t suit you). Style says wear what flatters you.
  • Fashion says follow what everyone is wearing. Style says be unique and wear what suits your lifestyle and personality.
  • Fashion says buy it all! Style says be selective, create a capsule wardrobe of clothes you can wear numerous ways.
  • Fashion says wear it for a season. Style says wear it for years!
  • Fashion says wear this seasons colour. Style says find out your best colours and wear them.
  • Fashion says wear those uncomfortable shoes. Style says comfort is king!
  • Fashion says wear it even if it’s not you. Style says wear what makes you happy.

Fashion certainly has its place…..but for a timeless, flattering wardrobe of clothes that suit you; style always wins!

How to make the most of your Autumn/Winter 2018 wardrobe.

Checked blazers, animal print, the colour green and brown are synonymous with this season’s trend. I am passionate about having you ready for the season effortlessly. Here are a few wardrobe tips, so you are super stylish this Autumn/Winter:

1, Create space to see your autumn winter clothes. Pack away all your spring/summer clothes. Store away your out of season clothes in a spare wardrobe, your suit case, under your bed, in your loft or on top of your wardrobe.

2, Go through your clothes and give away anything that doesn’t make you feel or look good. Especially clothes that are too small, too big or dated. They do nothing for your self-esteem and we’re all about style and confidence.

3, Lay out the Autumn/Winter clothes you have and create various looks with them for work, rest and play. Take pictures of the looks, so you are ready for all occasions.

4, Write a list of any gaps you have in your wardrobe. Your warm winter essentials, anything worn out that’s need replacing or is dated. Have you treated yourself to a winter new hat, scarf or gloves in your favourite colour? It makes all the difference and brightens up the dullest winter day. Remember to also include a treat or two from this season’s trends to update and jazz up your wardrobe this season.

*If that all sounds too daunting, our London College of Fashion trained wardrobe stylists are waiting to help you Declutter/Detox and Manage your wardrobe with minimal effort from you. So you have your dream capsule wardrobe this Autumn/Winter.

Your Spring/Summer 2018 Style guide

Seems we’ve had the longest coldest winter ever, I’m sure we all can’t wait to ditch our woollies and swap them for some colourful lighter pieces.
With Spring on the horizon, here are trends to look out for this Spring/Summer 2018:
• Pastels! From lilac to baby pinks, this season is all about pastels. Soft tones that look effortlessly beautiful in the sunshine.

• Sparkles! Sequin and all things sparkly are not just for the festive party season, they have followed on to Spring/Summer day wear; so you will be sparking all year round.

• Polka dots are back! If you didn’t have enough of them in the 80’s, they are back with a vengeance. Thankfully designers have made design variations to the traditional polka dot, so look out for them.

• Bold colours. Red has followed on Autumn/Winter to Spring/Summer. For a bold, sassy and confident look; you can’t go wrong in red.

• Plastic! They say fashion repeats itself and this is true of PVC. For the brave fashion lover, PVC is a necessary addition to your wardrobe this spring/summer.

Client Emma’s feedback 25th April 2013:

‘Joy is amazing! I’ve thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of my experience.

It felt like a weight lifted from my shoulders after my Wardrobe Detox.

The Personal shopping was brilliant – so many amazing outfits to choose from. 

Joy just ‘got’ me and what I was looking for straight away.  I can’t imagine any other way of shopping in the future!

The Wardrobe management was also invaluable. Thank you so much.  Can’t wait to work with you again in the autumn (if I can wait that long!)’

A Slender New Year!

If you are anything like me, you have over indulged during the festive season and are keen to shift the extra pounds.

Here are a few style tips to give you a head start, so you look and feel your best this year.

Style tips for a slender you:

  • Colour: colour continuity is key to lengthening your silhouette. Wear the same colour top, bottoms, (tights) and shoes. Inject colour with your jacket, scarf or jewellery
  • Fabric: opt for more fluid fabrics such as silk or chiffon, steer clear of lycra or anything that clings to the body
  • Dress: wear more dresses and skirts: they are more forgiving and flattering. They also hide a multitude of sins – rather than trousers, which show everything!
  • Accessories: lay aside all belts (thin or wide) till you have achieved your desired circumference 😉 Belts draw attention to your midriff and emphasis it
  • Shoes: a pair a fabulous heels elongate your body so you appear slimmer

Snuggle up in Style!

Hello cold; who says we have to compromise on style in our quest to keep warm?

We live in colder climes, so it is best we make the most of our wardrobe and adapt to it stylishly 😉

A few tips to transform your wardrobe this winter:

  • Pack away your summer clothes, sandals etc; makes it easier to see your Winter clothes.
  • Separate your work, rest and play clothes. Helps you navigate your wardrobe with ease.
  • Get rid of anything that doesn’t fit you well, make you feel good or that you are tired of wearing.
  • Polish your boots! Best to have 3 pairs: flat long boots for casual wear; wedge ankle boots for dresses and casual/smart attire; and heeled boots for your dresses/skirts at those smarter do’s.
  • Bring out your scarves and ditch anything that isn’t colourful! You need to wear colour against your face all year round, particularly in dark winter months.
  • Get your fix of leather this season!  A leather jacket or skirt is a must have piece.

If you would like a professional eye to sort out your winter wardrobe and get you ready for the cold.

  • This season is predominately Black and White. Less colour more Monochrome. Wear a pop of colour with your accessories and shoes!

  • Out goes the feminine floral prints of summer, in are more masculine androgynous styles. Trousers, zips, studs and panelling are BIG this Autumn/Winter!

  • Leather is a key piece for your wardrobe this season. Pick up a leather jacket or a leather skirt in this fab texture; it will keep you warm as the nights draw in.  Leather skirts look chic with long boots and knitwear.

Rosalyn 18th September 2012

‘I have to tell you. I gave a talk last night and wore one of the dresses and jewellery you advised me to buy. I know it was ages ago, but it is smart, tailored and I felt very confident.

Someone who I had always known as being very critical came up and told me that i looked so elegant.

I was pleased and have to thank you for changing my wardrobe.

I just want to know how much I appreciated your advice’.
