So many customers we speak to feel nervous about putting outfits together. When they put a garment on over their head, slouching, looking into the mirror all they think they see is a frump! They seem to almost take the view that whatever they wear is going to look terrible, so why bother trying?
In this week’s blog we want to stomp on a few of the most offending fashion misconceptions you or one of your loved ones might have, fashion is for everyone!
The biggest secret – and we know this might sound a bit cliché – is how you feel before you put on an outfit and how you feel when you’re in it!
How many times have you seen someone wearing an outfit you wouldn’t dream of wearing – clashing prints, too mixy matchy for your taste…but somehow you can’t put your finger on what it is about it but they look fabulous! There’s an air to them, they’re confident they look good and so they’re comfortable that they can pull the look off. No one is just born with effortless style. Style is personal and it grows with time. It is usually inspired by many elements – from personal life experiences to your mood of the day – it’s just another way to express yourself.
Put on a pair of heels and it can change the way you carry yourself, but how many times is it because of the way they make you feel rather than the way you look? Try altering your posture when you’re in flats or better yet when you’re barefoot – look in the mirror, shoulders back, chin up, chest out, et voila you can pull flats like any elegant ballerina could as she walks into the theatre before a show.
Take a look around and you’ll see this is definitely NOT true – the truth is it is a matter of picking the right outfits to compliment your body type. It’s a personal style to a person that makes them fashionable, not their body size. If something doesn’t look good on you, most of the time it’s really just because the fit is off.
Every “body” is different and what happened to sizes? Why not feel comfortable in something that fits you rather than trying to fit into something that doesn’t? That being said, even though bodies differ, they aren’t so different that a pair of pants doesn’t look like a pair of pants – it doesn’t matter who the wearer is. You just need to find the style of pants that flatter you!
Bright colours are on-trend and can actually look quite elegant – the key is to keep accessories and makeup to a minimum or neutral and let the clothes be the focus. If you heap on too many extra embellishments to your outfit, the bright colours of the garments will end up clashing or worse yet become an eyesore.
