You may feel that every time you open your Instagram account you are bombarded by images of young, super slim glamourous woman who literally look good in a bin bag. I am here, as your personal stylist, to tell you that trends do not have an age limit and that fashion is for everyone of any colour, shape and size. It is just a matter of finding your fashion and what works for you.
We are constantly told by the media that we are too old for short skirts or that we should only wear age-appropriate clothing. I mean, seriously, do you think that Vivienne Westwood or Iris Apfel every took any notice? No, and nor should we.
“Fashion is very important. It is life-enhancing and, like everything that gives pleasure, it is worth doing well.”
The truth is that if you are feeling confident you can literally carry off anything. I personally would draw the line at hot pants, but that is just a personal thing. We all have clothing that we shy away from, whether it is pattern because it seems too daunting or skirts because you have no idea what to wear them with. This is where I come in as a personal stylist because with just a little bit of guidance and support it is easy to find what suits your body shape and colouring and, once you know, it is happy shopping all the way.
Tips To Find Your Personal Style
- If you want to wear a patterned dress, then start with a smaller print as it is easier to carry off.
- If you want to try a wide leg trouser then wear them with trainers or a loafer to make it comfortable but ensure you feel stylish. Avoid heels as you won’t walk with the same confidence and there is nothing worse than a wide leg trouser flapping about your ankles!
- Be brave and try just one thing you would not normally wear; a jumpsuit is a great place to start as anything that involves one piece dressing is a winner in the mornings. Go for a dark colour if you don’t want to feel too bold but wear it like you mean it.
Once you know what suits you it means you can build up a wardrobe of clothes that are all chosen to complement each other so you can pop a dress on and add a sleeveless knit when the weather turns or put on a wide leg trouser and add a gorgeous soft sweater with some fabulous trainers. You don’t need a huge amount of clothes you just need the right clothes.
The common misconception about having a personal stylist is that it is a huge luxury and that you will end up spending a fortune. This could not be further from the truth. In the long run it will stop you from repeat buying the same clothes and save you time because you will have the tools to choose well and make better decisions.
