Top Tips to Dress a Stone Lighter

Opps we did it again! That post Christmas holiday bulge is always upon us when we are turning our attention to booking that longed for holiday. Normally panic sets in and we try to diet in an unrealistic fashion. But help is at hand in the wardrobe to help you get back on track.

1) Does it fit?

The most important thing to consider when getting dressed or choosing an item in store is, does it fit? Fitted clothes offer a far more flattering image to the world of you. It is only you that will notice the lumps and bumps or worry about your waist or hips or thighs. We often are too self critical of ourselves noticing a specific area rather than the whole look from head to toe.. The fit and shape of the garment plus key accessories will make a world of difference.

Book a wardrobe consultation with one of our personal stylists to guarantee a wardrobe you love!

2) Do you make an effort from top to toe?

Not only a good fit when it comes to your clothes, but a good haircut plus good make up will set you up with a great basis for looking at yourself and to wear your clothes.

Find out more about our make-up classes and hair styling sessions.

3) Underwear is key!

Next up is some clever underwear! Don't be afraid to seek out the big knickers. For trousers, skirts or dresses a pair that flatten the stomach of clinch in the waist will give you a great support and enable you to ease those items on.

Our personal shopping service includes advice on the right underwear for you.

4) Does wearing black really make you slimmer?

The old adage of wearing dark clothes to make yourself slimmer backfires slightly as all it does is create a blanket rather than accentuate or change your shape. If you must wear head to toe black then your shoes need to be a different colour and if you have a slender waist pop a belt round it - again go for a pattern like this season's zebra stripe or a bold hot colour. If you have slender arms then make the black top ¾ length sleeves and add chunky bracelets or a row of bracelets to emphasise your wrists.

For a one-stop look to a whole new look check out our Total Revamp service - perfect for starting a new year!

5) Be bold

Bold prints create a diversion as they are enhancing to a garment and are uplifting particularly during the latter winter months. If you are pear shaped and have good arms then a short sleeved patterned top with nicely flared trousers will emphasise the arms. And if you are cold then wear a bright cardigan over your shoulders which will create more volume on top drawing the eye away from your hips. Always think of emphasising your slender parts, using underwear to do some nip and tuck work then choose colour over black.

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.
