SO WHAT IS IN THE SHOPS?

A.... is for Animal Print:  look out for snakeskin, zebra print and of course the classic leopard print, along with some fabulous new bright coloured leopard, something for everyone.

C... is for Cordoroy: this 70's favourite fabric has made a comeback. A tailored cord blazer is a good go to piece for your wardrobe, but you will also find skirts, shirts and shoes in cord. My top tip is to be mindful that a chunkier cord can add extra bulk to your body, so try before you buy.

T... is for Tweed and Tartan: this is one winter trend you cannot ignore. The great thing about tartan this time is that it is available in a huge range of accessories, so if you don't want to go all out, just dip into the trend with a bag or a pair of shoes.

S... is for Slogans: whether you opt for a small logo or a full on statement slogan you will find something to suit your personality in the shops. A t shirt under a jacket is a good way to wear a slogan if you don't want to stand out, alternatively opt for a jumper and say it loud and proud.

PS... is for personal shopping. A PS session is a great way to try out new shops and styles. I offer a FREE advance consultation, getting to know you and your style personality, so that we can make the most out of our time together. Sessions start at 2 hours and are at a reduced price for bookings in October of £35 per hour. Please get in touch if you would like any more details.
