As fashion month gets into full swing around the world and Summer draws to an end, many of us will be thinking about our Autumn/Winter wardrobes.
The start of a new season is the perfect time to take a step back and review your own personal style. We can all get stuck in a rut, or style of dressing that almost becomes like a ‘uniform’ which we end up wearing day in, day out. However, with a few simple steps you can transform your personal style to leave you looking and feeling refreshed for the months ahead!
1. KEEP IT CURRENT
Not all of us are slaves to fashion, however it is important that you keep your look current. Glossy magazines and online sites are packed with image inspiration for the coming season and top tips on what is going to be ‘on trend’. Focus on the trends that appeal to you and then decide how you are going to incorporate them into your look in a way that is still ‘you’.
2. SHOE BUSINESS
Your footwear can make or break your outfit. Throw away those battered boots and invest in a new pair, in one of your neutral shades, to see you through Autumn/Winter. If you can afford to invest a little more they will last you several seasons before they need replacing.
3. GOOD FOUNDATIONS
Ideally you should be measured and fitted for a new bra around every six months. If you’re overdue then head to the fitting room before you buy a single new item for Autumn! Good foundations are key to ensure comfort and smooth lines on your clothes.
4. KEEP IT COLOURFUL
There are some gorgeous shades around for the coming season so take this opportunity to try some new colours! Even after a colour consultation it can be easy to gravitate towards the same few colours as time goes on so take this opportunity to take another look at your colour swatches and add some new shades into the mix!
5. BUY WHAT YOU LOVE
Don’t buy anything that is just ‘fine’, you (and your wardrobe) deserve more than that! If you put something on that you feel truly fabulous in, then go ahead and purchase it. When you wear something you feel amazing in you will exude confidence and this will guarantee you look amazing too!
