Ten Top Tips

I thought I’d share with you some of the generic styling tips that I pass on to my clients that I think you will find helpful. Get a full length mirror.

Creating A Column of Colour to Look Taller and Slimmer

We stylists often extoll the virtues of dressing in such a way as to create a "column of colour". This is because it’s one of the easiest ways to look taller and slimmer - and let’s face it, most of us would like to be one of, if not both, of those! Monchromatic column of colour In its purest form a column of colour is created by wearing a single colour from top-to-toe. This ...

women at a party
The festive season is almost upon us and, after last year’s restrictions, I think many of us are in the mood to party. Certainly, there’s been a shift of focus within the fashion world from stay-at- home lounge wear to more glamorous “out-out" wear. So what will you be wearing for Christmas and New Year parties? How much you relish the opportunity to  put on a bit of ...

  Style and  beauty are not just the prerogative of the young. There is absolutely no reason why a woman well into her fifties, sixties, seventies and beyond cannot look attractive and stylish. But, whereas the young may manage to pull off some dubious fashion choices, we grown-ups need to dress with a little more care. Fortunately we have good sense and experience ...

What to Wear this Autumn-Winter

This month’s blog was originally going to be an in-depth look at the key trends for Autumn-Winter, but then I got to thinking about what really interests the women I work with; looking and feeling good, rather than slavishly following fashion. Of course, they want to look current but they’re less interested in what’s “in” for a particular season and more interested in what work...

What I Wore on Holiday

I have just returned from a wonderful ten day holiday in beautiful Croatia.  Given the pandemic, this was the first time I have had to pack for a proper holiday in quite some time! I have previously run workshops on how to pack for a holiday within cabin luggage allowance, so I am pretty good at putting together a very limited capsule holiday wardrobe. This time around thoug...

Dressing For Your Proportions

I think that most of us appreciate that to dress well we need to understand our shape. But did you realise it's equally important to understand your proportions? Whether you are short-bodied or  long-bodied has a big part to play in putting together flattering outfits. Broadly speaking, if you have balanced proportions you will measure the same from the top of your head to y...
