Do you wear fashion or does it wear you?

May 21, 2018

The latest trends can often look stunning and enticing on the models on the runway, but if most of us wore those garments in the ‘real’ world, we might feel somewhat ridiculous. So, how does one close this gap of being fashionable yet still relevant and smart looking in the real world? Is it possible to incorporate fashionable garments and accessories into one’s everyday wardrobe looking and feeling pretty good and confident about it? You are not alone, if some doubt creeps in at different stages such as “Am I too old for this” or  “ I don’t have a model’s body, how will it look on me?”  So, how do you make sure that in this world of ever changing fashion, fashion does not wear you but you wear fashion?

For example, red is red hot, so is the off the shoulder look. Knowing which red suits you (blue red or a tomato red) helps eliminate a colour that would look sickly on you, and you could chose a red that makes you look vibrant. If you have shoulders which are wider than your hips, I would recommend steer away from the off the shoulder trend, unless you use your hair or other accessories to break up your neckline. However, if you are an hourglass or wider at the hips, it would definitely be very flattering.

This type of expert advice can really be of immense benefit when assembling your wardrobe staples. Considering your lifestyle, you body as well as your own unique colouring (eyes, skin and hair) is underestimated yet crucially important. Knowing which latest trends to incorporate and which to leave alone is the key to unlocking your own personal look and beauty. A great fashion stylist is trained to carefully evaluate what your unique requirements are and assist in curating  a wardrobe in which you will look and feel amazing. A fashion stylist who is aware of the latest trends can help you select items which will portray you on trend AND  in the best possible light.

You WILL look fashionable and you should expect lots of compliments with the right advice.
