Prints to Flatter

  1. Vertical stripes : Perfect for lengthening and elongating the body. Avoid if you're tall and slim and lacking curves as they will only emphasise this.  Opt for thick stripes on areas where you're slimmest and thinner where you want to slim proportions e.g. pin stripe trousers.          
  2. Horizontal stripes : Great for adding breadth and width. Ideal for Pear shaped figures who want to balance hips.  Wear a top with horizontal stripes to add breadth to the chest and draw attention upwards.  Avoid if you carry weight around your tummy or are broad shouldered as this will simply add inches where you don't need it.  Also perfect for tall slim figures, opt for a tube style dress with bold stripes across it to create curves. 
  3. Asymmetric stripes / diagonal stripes : Can be very flattering drawing the eye up and out which can help create the illusion of curves. 
  4. Ditsy Floral prints : Generally the smaller the print the slimmer you need to be as otherwise it can look frumpy.  Remember an all over print is more flattering than a print on one part of the body as this breaks up proportions.  Small floral prints are suited to slim petite figures as it won't overwhelm the look.  To toughen up, mix with jeans or bright coloured jacket or cardi.
  5. Bold geometric prints : Ideal for curvy figures, particularly if all over a dress for example.  The more consistent the print, the more it will disguise lumps and bumps.  Block colours are less forgiving.  Most body shapes can wear an all over print, apart from petites who would be swamped by a big bold print.  Alternatively, if you prefer separates, wear the bold print on the slimmest part of your body.

Client Testimonials

I found out that the clothes I was always buying did not create a good image for my shape or age. If only I had invested in a personal stylist years ago!

It really was time to get my wardrobe into shape. My personal stylist knew what worked on me and what didn't. The advice was invaluable and now I have an outfit for every occasion!

The whole experience has changed my perspective about me and my life and my clothes. I feel so much more confident and I can't thank you enough.

She knew exactly what would suit me. I tried on outfits I would never have thought of. It was fantastic to go shopping with a true expert.

Every time I go out I feel brilliant and it's so easy to dress now. I have had so many compliments which has really boosted my self-esteem.

I now know what to wear and when which is so helpful having just had a baby. My body shape has changed but I now know I can still look good. My husband is very happy too!

She's done things to my eyes that remind me of pictures taken 25 years ago!!! I would recommend the make-up masterclass to anyone. The advice is truly fantastic.

Every experience was over and above my expectations and something I will cherish for a very long time. I can't thank the whole team enough - my personal stylist, my make-up artist and my hair stylist were fantastic, and the organisation of the services were flawless.

It's the little changes that make all the difference, and you've raised her self-appreciation and confidence, great work. It's the best Christmas present I have ever bought my wife.
