5 Fashion Do’s:

1. Do go Timeless: While it is good to follow trends. Being you and dressing stylish for all ages beats all trends.

2. Do go for a Pop of color: Most people are afraid to try color, but be fearless; when going for color, choose colors that match your skin tone. Determine if your skin goes best with warm or cool colors and start from there. Also when wearing colors together pick colors that coordinates.

3.  A Do: Must haves for every wardrobe:

a. A white shirt [ always a staple].

b. The right Undergarments[ Tucks, Bras et all]

c. A fitted blazer in black or brown: easy to throw or any outfit and always looks good.

d. A pair of black denim: very easy to pair with any top and can even be used in a casual outfit.

f. A high waisted skirts: alway chic and slims all body types.

g. LBD’s: Little Black Dress are staples  and is a must for every wardrobe as they ALWAY comes in handy.

h. A pair of Heels: whether a heel person or not, invest in a pair of pumps even if it is a few inches, there are just       some few occasions that definitely calls for it.

i.  Prints: these are just cool and can take you from work to the beach or dining and wining easily; just make sure you pick one that is sure to suit all occasions.

j. A good Handbag ; we all have various handbags, but you must have one bag that really speaks to you and is multi purpose bag.  Something classic and stylish that you could practically use on anything.

4. Do Pearls: They are classic and stylish need I say more.

5. Do always emphasize your best feature: Got Great legs, Wears short skirts.

5 Fashion Don’ts:

1. Don’t  wear too much pattern on pattern. Clashing patterns is a fashion offence. some fashion patterns go with others but don’t get carried away in the prints store.

2. Wear figure hugging clothes if you dont have a smooth shape void of all the extras and contours, that is just bad fashion.

3. Don’t assume that you must always match the color of your clothes with your shoes and bags. Just look for colors that go well together.

4. Vintage is in but never over do it. There  is nothing worse than dressing  like a teenager just cos of a few lessons gone wrong in color.

5. Don’t wear uncomfortable fashion. While it is true that some people may want to suffer for fashion, being chic and comfortable is always best.

5 Fashion Myths: Lies, Lies, Lies.

1. Black is Boring: Trust me this is a lie. Blavk is the most chic color to wear cos it can be worn to every and all occassions, just pair with the right accessories and you are well on your way.

2. Black never goes with Navy: this is so wrong. Black and navy go pretty good togther and make for a perfect timeless, elegant outfit.

3. Strips make all women wider: Not true, strips looks goo on people with narrow shoulders, slender hips and small breasts, but fuller figured ladies and busty ladies should stay clear of stripes.

4. Mix and Match prints is a no no: Well not quite so if you must wear mixed patterns keep the design or color  in the same as the other pattern. Mix and match smaller and larger patterns together.

5.  White from the waist down is bad. Not true ladies.  Depends on body types  Longer legs can rock it but when it comes to wearing white, I suggest wearing it from head to toe in say a dress form. monochromatic colors actually elongates the body.
