We are having some fabulous sunshine right now and I hope you are enjoying it. But Summer will soon draw to an end and many of us will be thinking about our Autumn/Winter wardrobes. This week I have packed away my Summer clothes and my wardrobe is now full of Autumn/Winter things, cosy knits, layers, boots, opaque tights – in every colour but black!

 

Bye bye Summer clothes – until next year!

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!

 

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’. My personal favourite glossy is Grazia. Cheap as chips and full of great style and fashion tips.

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. I am having a thing with ankle boots right now and here are three recent purchases. From left to right, metallic flat ankle boots from Primark, rust suede sky scraper stiletto heeled boots from Asos and low heeled animal print boots from Zara. So I have the option of flats, low heels and high heels to mix and match with my outfits.

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.

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! One of my favourite Pantone colours for Autumn 2016 is Spicy Mustard. It is not an easy colour to wear and doesn’t flatter everyone. If you think you can’t pull this off in a garment, try a splash of colour such as a belt or a cute clutch bag.

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! It never ceases to amaze me the number of women who tell me they dislike an item of clothing they are wearing. Just why would you wear something that you don’t enjoy???
