- Your clothes say so much about you, so the first thing we’ll do is uncover your ‘style personality’. We’ll also chat about your lifestyle, what you spend your time doing, where you like to shop, and what you’d like to get out of the style consultation.
- We’ll then have a look at your face shape to give you some hints and tips on the types of glasses and hairstyles that will suit you best, as well as clever make-up tips to enhance your features.
- Next we’ll look at your body shape, height, scale, and proportions (please be reassured that this doesn’t involve eight-way mirrors or getting undressed – all of this is easy to see with your clothes on!), and I’ll ask you to show me any clothes you have brought along.
- Dressing well is all about being able to pull all of this together to create looks that really work for you, that accentuate your ‘good bits’ and show off the real you. So that you can remember what you have learnt you’ll receive your copy of the Colour Me Beautiful book which we will annotate to show you exactly which styles, cuts, fabrics and patterns will be most flattering for you.
- I’ll also make recommendations for items that would be good additions to your wardrobe and which shops to find them in.
- You’ll leave knowing how to confidently choose clothes that suit you and that you feel and look great in.
Learn how to choose the cuts, fabrics, shapes and styles of clothes that fit, flatter and function for your lifestyle. Style is not about following fashion, but more about working out your unique look, a way of dressing that feels like ‘you’. Learning to then dress your shape is the icing on the cake. You’ll end up with clothes that have truly earned their place in your wardrobe, that you wear time and again and look and feel fabulous in.
