what to wear
So hello! My name is Loulou and while you are hiding let's use the time to learn how to start dressing in a completely new way and stop feeling so disconnected from your style and yourself. I've created an easy to remember but impactful guide that will completely transform how you style and see yourself.
Dreams and desires matter, they shape our perception, they shape why we get up in the morning, they shape what keeps us awake at night. So when you dress yourself everyday if you feel that your clothes do not match the change you wish to see in your life then I believe its time to change your wardrobe.
Probably the most important element when creating a smart casual look is to put opposites together. This is the tip that all stylists work by. Do as it says; match smart & casual. Dressy skirt with a casual t-shirt and trainers or jeans with a blouse and blazer.
You are hoping that the winter days will start coming to an end, that your well worn jeans and jumpers will get a break and this summer you will really embrace feminine dressing that you say you will do every year. However it appears that the fashionista's of the world don't appear to have to worry about what to cook the kids for dinner, cleaning the bathroom or getting the boiler fixed.
1. Give yourself a compliment. I'm sure you are probably your best critic, so its about time you became your best cheerleader! However its not so easy to start switch that on so try starting your day with a compliment to yourself as you are getting dressed. B
It's almost Valentine's Day, which means there's plenty of love in the air and many of us will already be thinking of what to wear. Whether you're heading out on a first date in the evening or spending a chilled out day with your loved one, it's a welcome opportunity to dress to impress.
I believe we can all look and feel great in our clothes but we do have to get the shopping bit sussed so I challenge you to face your fear and start to recognise why you might be finding it so hard.
A lot of us wish that we dressed with more character, style and passaz and blame our clothes and lack of time as the trouble makers for our uninspired appearance. I am here to help you perk up your style and help you realise that there is a lot more excitement in your wardrobe than you give it credit for.
So for those rolling their eyes and giving me the 'women shouldn't need to dress up to be heard' look - I disagree. Someone told me how they dressed down so clothes didn't get in the way of what they were trying to say. I think that's nonsense.
I was never the best at sport, I wasn't the best academically and the boys appeared not to be interested in me, but fashion and clothing gave me a creative outlet and a way to define myself. An opportunity to say 'I'm not as boring as you think', or maybe a more likely story, 'not as boring as I feel.'
So here are my seven reasons, taken from advice given to me over the years, as to why I think you should start dressing like your mum and I think these reasons, regardless of your age are going to help you to feel stylish and gorgeous everyday.
Here's a brutal truth that no hipster will ever admit: festival dressing is tricky. You see, the aim is to appear all nonchalant and cool whilst secretly planning and packing for days in advance, streamlining your essential kit into one 'oh, dunno', type bag. And it can total really quite a hefty stash even without all this batsh*t "British Summer" weather we've got going on right now.
Gloves are so much more to hands than socks are to feet. A mislaid sock is a perennial thread in the web of wardrobe nuisances, but, classically, a mislaid glove is suffused with poetic symbolism. There is even something vaguely poignant about it, for the glove is an encasement for our hand, and what other outer garment is so full of intimacy?
When I got the call I exalted. I pranced around my boxy university room in Edinburgh totally joyous (this news also prompted one of the best high-fives I've ever received, but I digress). As I sank down into my spinny chair trying to stop shaking so that I may return to critically analysing Chaucer, a thought struck me; what the hell do I wear?

I believe every woman is different and has her own personal style DNA and therefore needs individual, personalised advice on how to create visual balance. I have always been passionate about giving women the relevant advice and the tools to dress themselves in the best way, to create a streamlined look using a woman's individual body shape and colouring.
My mission is to empower all women to dress for success by encouraging them to dress towards their body strengths rather than weaknesses and stop comparing themselves to others and playing the daily guessing game " does that look good on me".
I bet, like me, you've been struggling to know what to wear in this weather? As one who doesn't go to the supermarket without careful consideration to my whether my jacket vs shoes vs skinnies combo is a winner, the lack of warmth, sunshine and general malaise has been causing me no end of agro when getting dressed. In short, this weather has given me the fashion hump!
Black tie is dress code for formal evening events, although in recent years elements from its core ingredients have been snatched by the high street for various evening looks. It's not unusual to see a play on a single breasted black barathea with thin satin lapel combined with jeans. Cool? Hmmm?
