As we head into the new Spring/Summer season, I thought I would give you my top 5 style tips to help get your wardrobe ready!
1. Dress for your shape, not your size & know your neckline!
When you choose your new season dresses and tops, make sure you choose pieces with necklines suited to your shape. If you are a curvy girl with a curvy bust, you need to choose lower necklines with space. So, think V-necks, round or scoop necks, sweetheart & halter necks. If you are more angular and have a smaller bust go for high neck, boat neck and off the shoulder pieces. Wearing the right style for your shape is key to building a successful outfit.
2. Accessorise, Accessorise!
Stand out from the crowd in bold accessories. One of my all-time favourite things to wear in spring/summer is a hat. I wear a fabulous straw Panama hat and every time I wear it; I get compliments. This season go for a fabulous panama in white or natural straw or a fun floppy wide brim. Add your favourite pair of sunnies and espadrille wedges and you are all set for Saturday brunch. Spring/Summer really is the time to have fun with your accessories.
3. Dress Up, Not Down!
Life is way too short to wear boring clothes. Do not dress to fit in, dress to stand out. This year has been a little unusual and we have probably spent more time at home in our active wear than normal – now is the time to ditch the active wear and house clothes and dress up in fabulous Grecian inspired dresses, tailored pant suits, cute shorts and classic blazers – all paired with statement shoes of course.
4. Bold Colour & Bold Patterns!
This season go for bold colours and bold patterns. I am loving the stunning blue florals that are appearing in stores as well as the 70’s paisley prints that are here for Spring/Summer. And its love at first spot with all the monochrome polka dots that have announced their arrival. As for colour – the bolder the better. Pop the pastels away and choose hot pink, cerulean blue, canary yellow & emerald green. But, if neutral is more your thing, choose crisp white ‘s or earthy tones and accessorise your outfit with bold coloured accessories – hello new statement bag!
The best thing you could wear this season is a smile. A smile costs nothing, looks good with every outfit and is always in style!
Enjoy the spring/summer season and remember the most import thing you could wear is strength, dignity and confidence.
