These items are tried and tested winners on my clients and friends. Lots of them are on sale and going for a song. Be sure to browse the colour and size options and read the reviews.  1. Madewell Puffed Buckle Leather Belt Interestingly, several clients are refreshing their belt collections. I’m a frequent belt wearer. It’s an effective way of finishing off an outfit and adding an interesting touch. I fully support embellishing a belt capsule. This particular belt goes down well with clients who enjoy silver hardware. The buckle is chunky, yet lies flat and isn’t bulky. It’s wor ..read more

Your Climate Affects Your Wardrobe

Dress appropriately for the weather to create a more authentic, manageable and enjoyable personal style. By wearing what works best for your climate, you will be comfortable, at ease and prepared for the elements all day long.  Do not build a wardrobe for an imaginary climate. That’s spending money and storage space on items you won’t wear. That said, make sure your outfit needs are covered when traveling to places with different climates to your own. When your climate changes, adapt your wardrobe accordingly over time. Sometimes the changes are subtle, but they can also be dramatic ..read more

These seasonal items have been winners on my clients, and some were winners for me. Some of the items are coming in at smashing prices. It’s a great improvement seeing a range of natural fibres in collections this year as opposed to endless polyester. Long may that last.  1. The Loft and WHBM Blue Items If you’re a cobalt blue fan, there’s a fair amount of it in stores across solids and patterns at the moment. Items at the Loft impressed me quite a bit. The eyelet skirt is as pretty as can be, and has woven and knitted tops to match. The pants, top and dress in the Corfu Weekend patt ..read more

Lots of Linen: Yay or Nay
YouLookFab
by Angie
1w ago
There is an extreme amount of linen in Spring and Summer collections this year. This makes sense because linen was big in the ’90s, and ’90s trends are a big influence on fashion right now. The question is, how do you feel about it?  My feelings are mixed. I quite like 100% linen for a hot Summer’s day. I wear linen shirts, and occasionally a pair of linen pants. I used to wear linen dresses, skirts and jackets, but don’t anymore. There’s simply too much creasing and I’m no longer unconditionally at peace with the crease. I don’t mind a linen blend, but in warm and hot weather, my heart i ..read more

Outfit Formula: Summery Sets

Co-ords — matching pants, skirt and shorts sets — are having an on-trend moment. They were fringe last season and are mainstream this year. Most sets are patterned, but solids are also coming through. The vibe is a nod to late ‘90s fashion, and a practical one at that. It’s super easy to have separates ready to wear as a set. No fuss, and good to go with the addition of shoes and a bag.  I love wearing co-ords! Their matchy-matchy vibe is fun and dramatic to my eye, and a super simple way to look pulled together and feel comfortable in hot weather. They were my favourite ‘90s look that I ..read more

Link Love: Food-for-Thought Fashion Reads

From stylish television being all the rage to the pressure to dress a certain way when working out, today I’m sharing three articles on different style-related topics that are worth a read: Alyson Walsh wrote a food-for-thought post on “the stark(ers) reality of older bodies.” I thought this was an excellent question in this article on why the best workout clothes are ones you already own: “We all have bodies to move, so why must there be a certain way for them to look while we do so?” “They Give Us Beauty and Magic: Why Prestige Dramas About Fashion Are TV’s Newest Obsession.” Fab Links fro ..read more

Build Your Collection of Statement Pieces

by Angie
1w ago
Statement pieces are eye-catching items of clothing, shoes or accessories that reflect your personality. Often unique, but not necessarily big, bright, shiny, or voluminous. People notice them and begin to associate them with your signature style.  Statement pieces create energy and interest. Some are wardrobe workhorses. Wearing them frequently creates an honest and memorable reflection of your style. If a statement piece is expensive then frequent use whittles down the cost-per-wear. Style is about creating a positively reinforcing feedback loop between the way we feel and the way we l ..read more

Six Style Themes with Staying Power
YouLookFab
by Angie
1w ago
Six important themes have become a persistent part of fashion and style. So much so that they are more of a frame of reference than themes or trends. Representing a new normal, they have staying power and are getting stronger over time.  1. Sustainability and Ethics Sustainability is extremely complex, with no easy solutions, and many compromises. That said, most designers, retailers, and brands are producing more sustainably and ethically than they used to. Some more than others, but generally the industry has come a long way. There’s also a lot we can do as individuals. Reflec ..read more

If you enjoy wearing blue and white combinations in the Spring and Summer, then these simple and easy to pull together outfits might inspire you. You’ll probably be able to shop your closet to pull a few of them together.  Personally, I love wearing all shades of white with all shades of blue in warm and hot weather, and it’s a go-to palette. Unlike the outfits here, I add brights like citron, shocking pink, lime green, orange, and tomato red shoes, belts, and bags to the look. But not all the time. I enjoy keeping the look neutral too. Onto the outfits. 1. White Pants, Blue Top, Black Ac ..read more

The Practical Polish of a Tidy Square Knot
YouLookFab
by Angie
2w ago
A square knot (or reef knot) is a simple, effective styling tool that makes a visual difference. Take the two ends that need to be tied. Tie right over left, and under. Then left over right, and under. Pull, and tighten. Easy to tie and easy to untie too.  If you need to make a symmetrical bow, tie a square knot first and then complete the normal steps involved in making a bow. Sometimes this can make the bow too bulky. It all depends on the thickness of the fabric of the ties. Neckerchiefs love square knots. Tie a neckerchief with a square knot around your neck, wrist, bag, or in your h ..read more
