I’m liking this idea for a regular feature on my blog. So if you have any items of clothing that you love, but you don’t know how to wear, feel free to comment and I’ll see if I can help you out!
The tricky thing about styling is that what suits me, may not suit you. Styling not only depends on what you like to wear and feel comfortable in, but also your height, the length of your back, the size of your bust (in fact, the length and size of most body parts), your colouring and your left big toe – okay, well of course now I am exaggerating but so much plays a part in clothes that suit and flatter.
Just a few examples – because of the length of my legs, I can’t wear dark coloured flats. You will see in most of my outfit posts, my shoes are a bright colour. The length of a dress or skirt will determine how high I need my heel – one centimetre in length makes a huge difference. When wearing my brogues, I have to consider the length of my top, and the length of my jeans – proportions are everything for height and size perceptions.
But thankfully, some items work for everyone, and thankfully, once you get an idea of what works for you, the rest is pretty easy. And of course you know I will also say, try something new, out of your comfort zone, just to see how it works;)
I couldn’t find the right picture to emphasise my point, so I got carried away on Google Images instead…
