You might think that January isn’t the right time to be discussing investing in luxury clothing. The thing is, it’s an important part of my theme of ‘Celebrating You’ this month and with the sales in full flow, this could be the perfect time for you to rethink your clothes buying policy.
Now that the festivities are over, it’s time to find something else to celebrate. My suggestion is to spend this month (and hopefully, beyond) celebrating YOU!
Looking and feeling ‘sparkly’ over the festive period does not have to be in the literal sense. I want you to know that there are SO many ways to bring festive cheer into your outfits.
I’m here to tell you that it’s perfectly possible to be dressed down, feel comfortable AND stylish! There are, however, certain things to take into account.
To me, autumn means coats, boots and knitwear. Three of my favourite things to wear and buy. It’s so lovely to get cosy and warm when the temperature drops BUT how do you wear you knits without adding extra illusional poundage?
I’m a sucker for a good coat. In fact, I consider a coat to be a VITAL part of any autumn/winter outfit. What’s the point in getting dressed into a fabulous outfit, that you’ve taken care to pick out and accessorise and then bung your old scruffy anorak over the top?At this time of year, your coat often IS the outfit, let’s pay your coat wardrobe some attention.
Knowing the looks that ‘love you back’ is a key part of really stepping up and owning your style – so that wherever you are going and whatever you are doing, you feel like you – a really fabulous version of wonderful YOU.
I’m on a mission to help you to get confident and up level your personal style if recent times have left you feeling somewhat uninspired.
There are 4 key elements of style. I liken them to a puzzle. Each separate piece is important in its own right but when you bring the pieces together to create a full outfit, you’ll either have an outfit that ‘flows’ and that makes you feel great or one that jars, or feels wrong in some way (but you can’t put your finger on why).
Every so often, I hear things or read things about how we should dress, that make me mad and a bit sad. We are all beautifully different for a reason. We look different, we have different personalities, different taste, different lifestyles and different values.
