Seven ways to keep warm this winter: be warm, comfortable and stylish. Brrrrrrrrrr, winter is really here. Below are my top tips to help you choose warm clothes. It’s all about layering, but you don’t have to compromise your style and I hope you find my blog useful.
Personal Styling + Home Styling
There is always something new to see and read on my blog, especially Instagram. As a multi-award-winning personal stylist in London and Surrey, I cover a wide range of things that interest me, focused mainly around the following: exploring interiors + art + architecture + style + fashion + travel + food + things that touch my imagination daily.
If there’s one wardrobe item that is synonymous with autumn and spring, it has to be the trench coat.
The trench coat dates back to before World War 1, when it was designed as an alternative to the heavy greatcoat that army officers wore. It was adapted to be worn in the trenches, which is how the trench coat got its name.
Since then it has evolved and developed as times and fashions have changed and it is still a mainstay of many a wardrobe across the world. But do you have one on your coat rail?
Each season different colours take centre stage and for Autumn/Winter 2018 we’re going GREEN.
The perfect shade for Autumnal weather, the key to embracing this trend is to choose YOUR GREEN and wear it in a way that complements your colour characteristics.
Here are my guidelines to incorporate this trend into your wardrobe for the season ahead…
Navigating Autumn weather can sometimes be tricky here in the UK as it changes so often (sometimes within the course of a single day!).
It usually isn’t cold enough for a heavy coat yet but you still need an outer layer to keep the chill out until the temperatures really start plummeting.
This season there are a lot of lighter weight outerwear options: unlined coats, a trench coat or mac and I thought I’d give you the lowdown on a couple of other key outerwear trends: Blazers and Bombers.
Why not raise funds for your PTA, and give the school mums a really great night out too? Do some mums throw on the same clothes every day, wear slouchy clothes, wear dull colours to avoid drawing attention to themselves? Wouldn’t it be wonderful to know how to dress for ourselves so that we feel good in what we wear, to be comfortable and practical, yet stylish, and to gain the boost that often disappears when we have children.
Autumn/Winter is around the corner and with it the opportunity to shake up your style, but where should you start?
Whilst we’re inundated with ‘hot new trends’ and ‘what to wear now’ articles it can be difficult to know where to turn, and what to buy.
We all have that one friend who seems to always look effortlessly stylish. Whatever the occasion they always get it ‘just right’ and seem to be able to look put-together and chic without seeming to have spent hours and hours getting ready.
