A GUIDE TO WEARING COLOUR IF YOU DON'T LIKE COLOUR

A question I'm often asked is how to wear colour. And it's a question I LOVE to answer :) I totally get that it often isn't as easy as that for many of us. I've always gravitated towards items of clothing that offer colour by the shed load. I'm a sucker for anything brightly coloured, a magpie if you will, for all things loud and proud and for something that will allow my outfit to stand out in a crowd. I remember, when I decided to have a clear out of the clothes that didn't work with absolutely every other piece in my wardrobe, and what I was left with was a v monochromatic wardrobe with a few stripes, navy's and...

Age Appropriate is so OVER...

What counts as age appropriate when it comes to dressing? Women are constantly questioning their choices and instincts when it comes to getting dressed and end up feeling anxious about what they wear. “I don’t wear short sleeves or sleeveless anymore”, “I don’t think I can wear shorts anymore”, and just simply “I’m too old for that” are common themes.
