Wedding Outfit Inspiration For Women

462880ec2ebdd054d76f0311b885655aCookie cutter weddings have become a thing of the past and with that so have the typical wedding guest outfits.

With so many different wedding themes it’s hard to keep up with what wardrobe style is appropriate for which wedding and we’re here to help.

Luck to enough to be attending a beach wedding? The great things about beach weddings are that you can dress a little less formal than you would at a wedding here. For our beach wedding inspiration we found a timeless off white jumpsuit and paired this with a statement necklace and a stylish clutch. As far as shoes go, you have to be comfortable with walking in the sand therefore heels are not ideal. Instead, a stylish pair of sandals is perfect for a beach wedding. The statement necklace and sandals are a perfect pairing because the necklace dresses up the look that would otherwise be very casual because of the sandals.

Themed Wedding Style

A countryside wedding brings the beauty of nature and the sophistication of glamorous day into one place so when attending a wedding such as this one; your outfit should do the same. The printed dress has a great demure sleeve and is both stylish and classic at the same time. A light pink clutch and matching wedges accompany this dress perfectly and tones down the print.

Lastly we have the black-tie wedding. When shopping for a black-tie wedding outfit you will be able to find a variety of dresses in the evening dress category. When shopping keep this in mind, black-tie does not mean you’re limited to a long black dress. If you decide you want to wear a short dress keep it classic and elegant. Keep to one shade as prints are best left for country weddings. Think bond girl!

No matter the wedding them there is a perfect outfit out there for you and if you’re still struggling to find what that perfect fit is for you, book a styling appointment with us today!

3b34e7d26f9aa5c519d54c3acd088da0Have you changed your handbag recently or are you still carrying around your winter handbag because it’s too much work to move everything from one bag to another? Even a new handbag can give you a boost and can make your outfits feel different. At the moment there is a handbag in every style, every colour, and one for every occasion available from high street to designer. When going through your wardrobe there are some essential handbags that you want to make sure that are in your collection.

Now is the perfect time to shop for handbags because lots of these are in the sales! We’re going to guide you through the process of picking out the perfect handbag.

The everyday bag is essential because most women need a bag every day. This should a medium sized bag usually in a neutral colour like tan, mink or black that can easily match multiple items in your wardrobe.

The evening clutch is every lady’s lifesaver. When you’re going out you don’t want to haul around a huge bag, a nice clutch or a small purse is perfect for those nights out when you just need your wallet, phone, and lipstick. You’d be surprised how many people don’t have a go-to evening clutch. As a rule, if your outfit is delicate your bag should be the same.
If you travel a lot or are in situations where you have to carry a lot around, a classic tote is a must have for you. You can find a variety of stylish totes that are perfect for your travels.

Lastly you need one fun and funky handbag! Don’t be afraid of colour. It’s summer and a bright coloured handbag is exactly what your wardrobe is missing. Adding a colourful handbag to your outfit can turn it from drab to fab instantly. When picking out a colourful handbag find a style that you’ll get the most use out of, whether it’s a clutch, a medium sized bag, or a classic tote. Adding this splash of colour is essential to brighten your outfit and your mood.

On our style board, we have included stars next to the bags that would be the colour pop piece for your handbag collection.
When you’re shopping summer sales this weekend and you think to yourself “Do I need another handbag?” we’re here to tell you, yes, yes you do. Swap the contents of your current handbag immediately after buying it!

98d30210e43fca1b001f6fce1e64b98cGirls just want to have fun right? And what better way to have fun then by going on a weekend getaway. While you plan all the activities for the weekend we’ve got you covered on what to pack for your weekend away!

A playsuit is a one-stop shop to stylishness. If you had a long night the day before and you don’t want to put much thought it to your outfit you can throw on a playsuit and be ready to go. These come in a variety of styles that you can find for any occasion, time of day, or look. You can wear a fun and printed style like the one we found and simply pair it with a set of bangles and then add a stylish pair of sandals or flats. You can also find neutral colours with no prints or patterns, which are great to pair with a statement necklace and an up hairdo. Don’t feel comfortable in shorts? Feel exposed in dresses? Playsuits are great in-between garments perfect for easy weekend-away summer dressing.

For your afternoon look try pairing a denim skirt with your favorite blouse. A denim skirt gives you stylish but casual look and because it’s denim you can pair it with a variety of tops. If you want to go for a more casual look pair your denim skirt with a t-shirt and add either flats or a funky pair of sneakers (or even stay in the same sandals). This will create a look that is casual but also comfortable for whatever plans you have for your afternoon. However, if you want to go less casual pair your skirt with a blouse and a pair of wedges. Wedges are an essential item for any weekend away as you never know how far you’ll have to walk.

At night, wear white! Summer white is a very popular colour this season and it’s great for a night time look. You can pair a stylish white dress with a fun clutch like we did or you could go a different route with a white jumpsuit or maxi dress. Either way don’t fear wearing white on your weekend away. Use your accessorizes will make this look match the vibe of wherever you’re going that night. Going abroad for the weekend? White will be your perfect companion!

The great thing about all of these looks is that they can mix and match depending on how you dress them. Any of these looks would look great with simply a pair of sandals or a pair of flats. You can also rotate your jewellery from look to look and still look stylish.

Whatever adventures await you for your weekend away, you’re ready for them…morning, noon, and night!

To find a capsule weekend wardrobe with minimal fuss and totally stress free why not book a personal styling session. Available at locations across the UK.

Style Doctors guide to summer sales

, , , , , , ,

sale-shopping-style-doctors-personal-shoppersIf you’ve been out recently you’ve probably noticed sale signs everywhere, that’s because summer sales are in full effect!

Sales are a great opportunity to stock up on some of the fashion essentials and also a great chance to try something new since it is on sale!

No wardrobe is complete without a little black dress. During the summer sales picking up a little black dress will be one of your greatest finds. A black dress is something that doesn’t go out of style and you can wear it any season. You can dress your little black dress up with items you already own such as a nice printed blazer and your favourite heels. If you want to go more casual, pair your black dress with a stylish pair of sandals.

Is your wardrobe lacking the proper sandals for any occasion? The summer sales have you covered. When sandals go on sale BUY them, and there’s no need to stop at just one pair, buy two or three. Sandals aren’t limited to just casual looks any more; there are stylish sandals that can be worn as both day and night time looks. We found some great sandals at Zara that accomplish this versatile look. Only buy sandals that you can imagine wearing with a wide range of outfits.

style doctors summer sales guide

You can’t go wrong with the ‘always in vogue’ colour black during the sales and adding a black bag to your wardrobe is simple a fashion essential. You may not want to wear much black at the moment but you’ll be happy you made that purchase when the winter creeps-in. In addition to a black bag, use the summer sales as an opportunity to get something you typically wouldn’t. Try a colourful handbag to mix up any neutral looks you may already have in your wardrobe. There are lots of great colourful bags out at the moment, most of which were full price less than two weeks ago!

If you don’t already own a great pair of jeans for summer a lighter denim colour is a good option to buy in the sales. A great pair of jeans will pair up perfectly with items already in your wardrobe from a great blouse to a basic tee.

We love these printed trousers too and there is an abundance of these around and they’re here to stay. If you haven’t worn printed trousers before team these up with a classic one colour top or blouse in one of the most muted colours in the print.

When shopping the summer sales be sure to look out for pieces that you can mix-in-match not only with each other but also with the great pieces you already have at home.

The summer sales won’t last long but the pieces you invest in will.

When there’s a great sale you owe it to yourself to indulge a little!

Music Festival Style Inspiration

c8cd43221231aaa9b1e19f1342e181dfMusic festivals are one of the greatest parts about the summer time. If you love music you’re probably overjoyed by the amount of music festivals each year but you’re probably overwhelmed because you don’t know what to wear to all these different festivals.

We’ve created three different looks that accomplish the music festival vibe that allow you to switch up your look as you hop from one music festival to the next.

Music Festival Inspiration Style Doctors Personal Stylists

Boho chic is an easy look that you can recreate. The key item in this outfit is a long flowing skirt. You can find these skirts in a range of colors and styles. You can pair a neutral coloured skirt with a printed crop top or printed blouse if you’re not as comfortable showing some skin. If you prefer that your skirt be printed then do the reverse and match your skirt with a neutral top.

If you know anything about music festivals then you know that no music festival look is completed without a floral headband. Floral headbands are made in so many shapes, sizes, styles, and colours that you can find one to pair with almost any festival look! We’ve paired it with a simple earth tone dress that insinuates the feel of nature. The floral headband is also great when paired with a fishtail braid and it truly gives off the music festival vibe.

Some festival looks don’t require much effort (perfect for a festival) like in our “Touch of Tribal” outfit. We’ve paired a cute bubble crop top with a classic pair of jean shorts and finished with a great tribal sandal that is used as the statement piece in this outfit. A look like this could also be paired with jeans and a flowing blouse if you want to go for a completely relaxed look.

No matter the amount of festivals you’re planning on a attending this summer the outfit options are endless.

Why not book a style session with one of our expert stylists to find a festival look totally stress free? Packages start from £50.

Weekend Away Style Inspiration

tumblr_n7ap2cJkIJ1qc1ogno1_1280Got a weekend away booked? No idea what to pack? Want to look stylish but without having to take lots of luggage? We’ve got you covered.

For the bottoms you can work with three different styles that will fit different occasion. You want to have one nice pair of jeans, the perfect length shorts, and a classic pair of chinos.

When picking your jeans, it’s all in the fit. The perfect fit in jeans will keep your look clean and more put together even if you’re just pairing it with a basic tee.

Shorts can be tricky but they are very much in style right now. The key here is finding the perfect length. Two inches above the knee is usually a good rule. The great part about shorts is they come in a variety of styles. It wouldn’t hurt to bring 2 or 3 options of shorts on your trip. With shorts you can either dress them up or down. You can pair your shorts with anything from a classic tee to a button up with a well-fitted blazer. The possibilities are endless.

You can’t go wrong with a classic pair of chinos, you can dress them up as casual or as smart as you’d like which is a great trick for a weekend trip since you’ll be engaging in a rage of different activities.

Screen Shot 2014-06-23 at 9.53.49 AMThough we have three solid versatile bottoms, when it comes to the upper half it’ll depend more on your personal style and what look you’re going for. This is the part of your outfit you use to either dress it up or down.

We suggest two button up polos; one in a neutral colour and one in a more fun colour. You can pair a polo with any of the bottoms suggested. For a more casual look put together the fun coloured polo with a pair of neutral colour shorts, accessorize this with a pair of loafers and your favorite pair of sunglasses and you’re ready for an easy day of exploring.

If you’re going for a smarter look, pair your neural coloured polo with a pair of chinos and a blazer for more of an evening look. This look is perfect for a nice dinner while on your getaway.

Similar to the polos, adding a basic tee your outfit can create versatile looks. You can pair your tee with either jeans or a pair of your shorts, add in a nice jacket and create a casual look that can be worn many places.

These pieces are great foundations for your weekend trip but don’t forget to add pieces of your personal style wherever you go whether that’s your favorite sunglasses, a funky fedora, or an elegant bow tie.

Now you’re all packed and ready to go.

BONVOYAGE!

Make a statement with these printed blazers

Tags

, , , , , , , , , ,

celine tee printed blazer style doctors personal stylistsNo matter the season a printed blazer is the perfect touch to any outfit. You can add the fab back into a drab outfit that you may have let go a few seasons ago by adding a blazer into the mix. The lovely part about a printed blazer is that it does the work for you. You can pair any of these blazers with your favourite pair of jeans and a crisp tee and you are sure to still make a statement because the blazer is truly the stand out piece in your ensemble.

These blazers can be found from designer and high street stores and there is a style out there to suit every budget and shape.

Do you wear a lot of black? A statement blazer is a great way to lift an otherwise dull outfit. Team one of these over a simple black t-shirt for a fresh new look.

Now that summer is here are your cardigans feeling more drab than fab? The combination of the structure that comes with a blazer and the element of fun that comes with a print will certainly brighten your day.

The key to wearing one of these printed blazers is finding a print that matches your personal style. If you’re not someone who wears bright colours look for a black-based blazer. Do you wear lots of white? The top row will compliment your neutral palette well.

With these blazers it’s easy to either dress your look up or down but remember, the hard work is done, the statement is in the blazer alone!

These blazers look great dressed down with a pale wash jean for the ultimate in smart/casual chic this summer.

So whether you’re adding heels or your favourite pair of tennis shoes to this blazing look, a printed blazer is a definite must have!
