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.

Below are style trends for Autumn/Winter 2012 that guarantees you have an up to date wardrobe this season….Enjoy!

Autumn/Winter 2012 Style trends by Joy, senior stylist: Potential U

  • 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.

  • The main colours you will spot on the high street are dark green and bright red. Great festive colours that will brighten up your wardrobe this season!

  • It’s all about tailoring and suiting this season. Tuxedo style jackets, compliment your jeans or trousers well!

  • Peplum dresses and tops are following on from Spring/Summer 2012. Perfect to disguise those lumps and bumps, giving you a perfectly propositioned hourglass shape.

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’.

Jayne 30th August 2012

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.

FAQ

As we style the nation, we are asked numerous questions on style and fashion.

Below are answers to your frequently asked questions (FAQ) and some client feedback.

Enjoy!


Q: Why do I need a stylist?

  • I want to look my best but I simply don’t have time to shop for myself.
  • I’m tired of my current look and feel I’m in need of an urgent image overhaul.
  • I can never find what to wear when I’m are getting dressed, and nothing I have looks great on me.
  • I can’t find what I like when I’m shopping, and I’m overwhelmed by the endless choices in the shops.
  • I don’t know what flatters my bodyshape and what colours suit me.

If you can relate to any of the scenarios above; you need a stylist?

Client Feedback 29th October 2011

‘I’m enjoying wearing my new clothes. It’s made me more confident and simplified my wardrobe. I’m no longer standing in front of a pile of clothes wondering what on earth to put on!’ Deirdre

Q: I can’t afford a stylist! Isn’t it just for celebrities?

A: Having a Personal stylist isn’t just reserved for celebrities or the wealthy, it’s for anyone who wants to look their best and needs expert advice and assistance in achieving this.

Contrary to popular believe stylists save you money and stop you from making those expensive wardrobe mistakes. We see too many wardrobes with unworn clothes stuffed at the back and people wearing in ill-fitting clothes. Our stylist’s give you one to one advice on the best styles that complement you. We are not about fashion, rather about selecting styles that flatter you, so you look amazing!

Client feedback 20th October 2011

’I have made some very expensive mistakes in the past and have ended up with a wardrobe full of clothes I never wear.  Using Potential U has eliminated all the costly errors and stress of shopping.  My new winter collection is fabulous and I feel confident and comfortable’. Zoe

Q: How will my stylist know what suits me?

A: Our first objective is to know you and understand your lifestyle, then discovering your colours and bodyshape is key to styling you. We know you are not a mannequin, we all come in different shapes sizes/proposition and we are passionate about working with you as an individual .

All new client consultations are initiated with a comprehensive style questionnaire; this enables us to decipher your styling needs so we can best select clothes that complement your lifestyle.

This is then followed by a Colour and bodyshape analysis consultation. We select colours that give you a youthful glow and styles that flatter your bodyshape. (We recommend a Colour and bodyshape analysis consultation prior to Personal Shopping.)

We make it our business to select clothes you require for every aspect of your life: Work, rest and play. From city professionals, business owners and home makers we believe you deserve a style that best suits your lifestyle!

Client feedback: 16th June 2011

‘As usual, it was all so easy, as you had done the hard work for me.  It was interesting to see which clothes worked and which didn’t, and I am extremely happy with the clothes that I have. Everything fits with what I already have, which you helped find for me before, so I have a bigger variety of outfits now.  Thanks so much.’ Lynn
