How to create an outfit in 1-2 min

Today I share in the video below a simple 1-2 minute process of putting an outfit together. As I mentioned during this video, I personally think that there isn’t a right or wrong way or process for putting together an outfit. I simply share what works for me.

Before I talk any further, I wanted to mention that in order to create an outfit effortlessly and quickly while enjoying the process I’m going to assume that you had already de-cluttered your wardrobe and that everything you have in there currently serves your lifestyle, body and that you enjoy wear; if not, let’s have a chat 🙂

In a nutshell this is the process I talk about:

  •  Pre-plan in your mind how would you like to feel in what you’ll wear today (or tomorrow; depending on how long in advance you’re planing)
  • Visualise what you have a in your wardrobe and brainstorm some ideas
  • If you’re not wearing a dress, pick your bottom first based on how would you like to feel today and the occasions that you’re dressing for
  • Then pick your top and/or jacket
  • Finish your look with accessories

In the video below, I go through every single step in detail. I’d love to hear your thoughts and if you have a personalised way of creating your outfits, I’d love to know about it.

Practical and effortless tips on layering your outfit

Layering can be a fun and an accessible tool you can utilise at any time (considering the weather is not too hot) to add life to your clothes, create optical styling tips and change your looks.

The 3 things to consider when layering that I discuss in this video are:

  • Make those layers visible and obvious
  • Play with the different lengths of your clothes
  • Play with finishing details (i.e. picking the collar of your shirt out)

If you’re heavy in the top part of your body; keep layers to minimal (2 layers), layer with thing fabrics and fine jewellery or scarves and introduce layers to the bottom part of your body (i.e. play with the length of your top and add a long-maxi cardigan).

I’d love you to give these tips a go and please let me know how you go.

How many accessories is “too” many?

How many accessories is “too” many? Is there really such a thing?
I have two answers in this video for you……

On one side, I’d “no”. It depends on your personality and confidence. If you feel confident on who you’re and have a dramatic/ creative / exuberant personality; accessorising in a big way would resonate with you. At the end of the day you have to stay true to yourself. And when you dress and accessorise from that place of authenticity and self-expression it can be so liberating, exciting and inspiring to others.

And on the other side, I’d say “yes”. However, that’s my personal opinion. It doesn’t mean that’s the right or wrong answer. I resonate the most with simplicity and less is more. When people over-accessorise all of the sudden its seems to me that the accessories are starting to own them; rather than them owning the accessories /the look.

Does this make sense? I’d love to hear your thoughts. Please share your insights in the comment below.

Thanks

How to Get Out of your Style Rut

After having kids and not knowing much about myself I got stuck in a style rut. It wasn’t that hard to get out of that disempowering state. By exploring the following areas I become more confident and empowered and gradually I got my style mojo back:

=> Learning about myself (body shape, proportions and personality)

=> Understanding my colours

=> De-cluttering/ Refreshing my wardrobe

Recognising that you are in a style rut is the first step to climbing your way out of it. Then it’s about prioritising yourself to the top of your list (even if it’s 5 minutes a day) and allowing yourself some exploration time in regards to who you are, what you like/dislike, value and appreciate in clothes, and then put into practice some new tips you pick along the way.

B watching this video (click picture above) and practising the tips I share here, you can too get your style mojo back. And remember that I’m here to support you, so any questions please ASK!

 

 

Chunky/Statement Accessories: Yes or No?

In the video below I share the styling tips & tricks to rock those chunky or statement accessories not matter your body shape or size.

There are two things that I’d consider when wearing chunky or big accessories:

Consider Your Body Frame. If you’re a:

  • Small scale: choose small to medium accessories (still chunky but in proportion to your small scale frame)
  • Medium scale: any size accessory will work for you. However, if you’re short stick with small to medium accessories since large ones can make you look shorter.
  • Large scale: choose medium to large accessories.

Think about balance. If you’re wearing an outfit that is big and voluminous, keep accessories to minimal. If you’re wearing something sleeker mundane or neutral in colour, go for a little bigger and bolder with a chunky cocktail ring or big, bright handbag. You don’t want them to compete with each other.

If you have any questions or if there is any topic in particular that you’d like me to talk about it please let me know……..

How to break fashion rules with Accessories

If the colour of your new dress doesn’t compliment your skin, if the neckline of your top makes you look wider or if your cropped jacket shortens your torso it’s time to learn how to accessorise to make your garments and colours work for you.

Yes, accessories can add a pop of colour to your outfits, interest and also a touch of your personality to your looks.

However, there is more that we can do with accessories; we can bring balance to our body, elongate legs, lengthen our torso, soften our shoulders and much more. This is what I covered in today’s video.

I’d love to hear your thoughts when it comes to accessorising. If you have any specific questions, please let me know because I can do a Q&A just for you!

How to Build Your Best Wardrobe

It’s so refreshing to open your wardrobe and find a clutter-free zone, filled with everything you need and nothing you don’t. Because I truly DO NOT believe that more choice means better options and greater satisfaction. It actually creates anxiety and limits creativity.

In today’s video I share with you two formulas that I personally use and I also share with my clients when it comes to building a new wardrobe, downsizing or refreshing your wardrobe. These two formulas are: the SAP Formula (Staples-Accent-Pop) and the 20/80 well-balanced wardrobe formula.

Any questions, please let me know. If you implement any of these formulas, I’d love to hear about you. Thanks

Your Clothing Personality Unlocked

Our personality is often a strong indicator of what type of style suits us best.

We normally are a combination of 2 or 3 personalities when dressing or choosing an outfit. It’s ok if you feel that you don’t have a particular style; this is very common. It’s definitely within you, however because of different circumstances in life such as motherhood, weight fluctuations, career change and lifestyle you may have lost that sense of style and confidence on choosing things that represent who you are. Or perhaps you’ve never paid much attention to your beauty, image and appearance and how clothing and accessories communicate a message.

When you get clarity about who you really are from the inside out, identify the fabrics, details, textures and colours that make you feel great, know your body shape and how to dress it; then putting an outfit together and shopping gets easier and easier.

So, you can click the image below to watch this week video and get ready to unlock Your Clothing Personality.

 

Your True Colours

Colours can re-energise you and make you feel lighter and more vibrant. Colours can put you in a happy and positive mood. This is exactly what we need when we’re dressing every day, when we’re connecting with new people or when we’re networking and talking to potential clients and collaborators. My intention with this video is to inspire you to wear more colours and to teach you how to choose your true colours. Colours can also make you stand out and shine and this is something that we need to be ok with.  Not allowing yourself to wear colours that look amazing on you is like playing really small. It’s like allowing your fears and worries to dictate how you’re going to show up in the world.

And remember that you’ll find lots of practical information in the soon-to-be-launched book “Dear Confidence: Unleashing your Personal Style & Brand”.
