Why A Style Coach?

We have all met someone in life who has a sense of style. Their appearance, is in harmony with their body shape, height and natural colouring, as well as personality and character. They are fluent in the language of dressing and look good whatever the budget!

But why does getting dressed seem so easy for some, and a daily chore for others. And does it even matter?

The clothes you wear, do not define you as a person, but they are a reflection of your attitude and how you feel about yourself.
When it comes to non-verbal communication, clothing is responsible for the majority of our first impressions. It displays our economic status, social circle, level of sophistication, morality and mood.

Social media, TV and advertisting bombard us with thousands of images of what we should look like, and not what the majority of us do. Women are predisposed to feeling more inadequate and tend to underestimate their attractiveness. If you lack in confidence and self-esteem, these images only reinforce poor body confidence.

Experiences such as divorce, illness or bereavement can leave us on the back foot with a lack of the feel-good factor we once had. And a busy family life leaves little me time.

If you look good, you feel good. Who doesn’t want to feel more confident, happy and youthful!

Many women dress older than they are or wear clothes larger than their actual size. Trying to disguise any perceived flaws often highlights them more. We stop wearing things that don’t make us feel good, without knowing why. Trust your instinct and learn to like what you see in the mirror.

Colour is an instant way to make yourself feel and look better.
The right colours can give a youthful glow while the wrong colours can be ageing.
We are all born with either a cool (blue) undertone or a warm (yellow) undertone to our skin. Knowing this will establish the best colours to wear next to your face or the body as a whole.
Cool skin tones can wear blue, red, green and berry shades while warm skin tones can wear burnt orange, rose, blues and golden shades.

Hiring a professional style coach allows for an unbiased viewpoint. It eliminates emotion and other expectations that may arise in the hands of well meaning friends or relatives. Being friendly and non-judgemental also play a big part in building a relationship of trust.

The job of a style coach is to help steer you away from old, repeated negative responses and replace them with a new focus.

The focus on finding the best styles for your body shape, colours that flatter your natural colouring and give you a youthful glow, aswell as tricks and accessories to highlight your best features.

Almost everyone I work with say ‘I wish I had done this earlier’ Next time you open your wardrobe, get dressed or go shopping, think about the value you place on yourself and how it reflects the best of you from the inside, out.

Tips to finding your style
• Create a vision board on Pinterest and find styles you’d like to try out
• Consider your best assets and find ways to highlight them
• If something looks, fits and feels good. Ignore the dress size.
• Choose a monochrome colour pallette to give a streamlined look.
• Use bold prints and accessories to confuse the eye over a larger frame
• Walk tall and sit straight- It makes clothes look better, and creates presence and poise!

Colour Your Life!

Wearing the right colours for your skin hair and eyes can enhance your natural colouring and bring your features alive as well as visually reducing blemishes, clean up the complexion and give you a more youthful appearance and who doesn’t want a bit of that!

Wearing colours that don’t work for you can create an appearance and complexion that is ageing or hard. It could be said that wearing the wrong colours can mis-represent who you are, even how you feel.

How To Establish Your Skin Tone-

We are all born with either a BLUE (cool) undertone in our skin or a more YELLOW (warm) undertone and it is from this that we can establish the most flattering colours to wear, next to the face or as a complete look

 

Take the test-
Take a look at the inside of your wrist or forearm to see if the skin has a blue tint (indicating a cool undertone) to it or a yellow-green (indicating a warm undertone)

Or this-
1. Take off any traces of makeup and look into the natural daylight with a hand-held mirror

2. Wear a white shirt or hold a piece of white paper to your face.

3. If your skin tone in contrast to the white looks YELLOW or a warm golden, then you have WARM undertones to your skin which means you will look best wearing warmer colours.

4. If your face looks BLUE to pinkish, your skin tone is COOL which means you will look best wearing cooler colours

5. If your skin is a mix of blue and green you have a NEUTRAL skin tone which means you can wear a mixture of both warm and cool colours!

6.You can also do the same with GOLD or SILVER fabric. Gold being great for warm skin tones and Silver for cool.
