Saturday is perfect for shopping so read these 5 Essential Spring Tips quickly before going out and hitting the shops – smile!
This week there was another lovely personal styling event with Melanie Albisser at Modissa in Zurich. She gave us all some more great tips with regard to Spring Styling. This is the 2nd styling event of the season. Last time (link here) the focus was on shopping tips for every shape and the following 5 topics were covered:
- Trouser cuts
- High Waists in general (trousers and skirts)
- The Oversize Trend
This post covers 5 new tips essential for Spring Styling.
5 Essential Spring Styling Tips!
This Spring jackets should be either really long or bomber.
Most important is the length – any jacket over a dress should be either waist length or at least as long as the dress, if not a touch longer. When wearing jackets over trousers make sure it does NOT stop at the widest part of your body..
2. Thin Fabrics
Thin fabrics must be worn floaty / wide and NOT fitted! This Spring is all about lovely thin floaty fabrics – essential in every wardrobe this coming season!
This blouse is a lovely example of this years thin fabrics.
3. Long Cut Blouses
Unless they are made of extremely thin fabric like the one above, don’t try to tuck them in. You’ll only add unnecessary stomach width – smile.
Instead have fun with them, let them be comfy and worn out over carefully chosen trousers.
4. The Pleated Skirt
The Pleated Skirt is essential in every wardrobe – you just need to be careful how you wear it. Simple and waisted should be left to the super skinny. If you’re on the look out for a pleated skirt that will make you look slimmer go for one that has the pleats sewn down partially from the waist down – as in picture.
5. Long Dresses
Long dresses make you look longer. Gone is the saying “I am too short to wear such a long dress”. Plus long dresses are a must have this season…I’m going to once again show you my personal favourite and I am short – smile.
