The Grown-Up Sportswear Trend

how-to-wear-the-sportswear-trend-style-tips-by-style-doctors-personal-stylists.jpgSometimes us super women also come down with a case of the Lazy Sundays, but we still have to keep up with the fast pace of our everyday lives. So here’s where the sportswear-as-a-second-wardrobe trend is going to help your Lazy Sundays turn into Stylish Errands Sundays

Sportswear has recently become the craze of the fashion industry and the most shopped class of style since designers have expanded the trend. Brands like Nike, Adidas, Reebok, and Fila hyped up the trend of sneakers and sport shoes so much so that when the newest trainer drops, POOF. It’s sold out in a matter of hours.

The Grown-Up Sportswear Trend

The sportswear trend hasn’t just crossed over to our casual wardrobes, but also into our work and evening wardrobes. The grown-up sports trend is easier than you think to recreate. Simply add a branded or graphic body, tee or camisole and team this up with a smarter trouser. Finish off the look with a tailored piece like a blazer to ensure that you look sharp.

Think ‘heavy’ rather than ‘delicate’ and ‘androgynous’ rather than ‘girly’ for this look. Sportswear-inspired clothes have come a long way in the last few years and you can look just as put together in a sports top as you would a blouse. As we always say…’it’s all about the styling’.

personal styling for teenagers style doctors stylists.jpgBeing a teenager is stressful. Between coursework, part time jobs, and activities, it seems like shopping can be pushed to the back burner. That’s not fair, especially if you’re passionate about how you dress and you enjoy shopping! Sometimes going to department stores with parents can be frustrating, especially if your tastes in clothing differ. We understand that growing up can be a challenge. Style Doctors are here to help style you from head to toe so you can take on life fashionably.

We love to get to know you as an individual and help you create a look that’s entirely your own, inspired by your favourite looks from glossy pages to runways.

Comfortable and Chic Clothes

We live in a society that’s moving non-stop. By the time you’ve finished work, the kids are home from school, and dinner is made, all you can think about is changing into joggers and a t-shirt. As tempting as this sounds, it’s not beneficial. Getting into the lazy habit of lounging about the house in ill-fitted, worn and mismatched cotton doesn’t do anything for your mood or your confidence.

Think of the lounge clothes in your closet. Do they fit you? Do the colours make you feel good, and energise you? How do these clothes make you appear to others? You may only be doing laundry and squeezing in a bit of yoga on your Sunday afternoon, but Style Doctors sticks to our motto of, “If you look good, you feel good.” And this motto should apply to all aspects of life – even if you’re just hanging around the house. So whether you’re watching the kids or staying at home with a friend, loungewear has the potential to be fashionable and chic. (And still comfortable!)

comfy-loungewear-palazzo-pants-shop-the-look-768x512

The key to mastering the loungewear look is making sure that it can be transitioned with a few pieces for wearing outside. Keep in mind the shoes and accessories you can wear with your outfit, and keep them easy to wear and neutral. Your lounging outfit will be comfy and simple, so you don’t want your accessories to be too over the top.

Your makeup should also fit this easy going theme. Think illuminators, BB and CC creams, and neutral eye shadows. There’s nothing wrong with an eyeliner or a pop of colour on your lips, as long as the look remains clean.

Fit is important, but clothes don’t have to be tight in order to fit correctly. Palazzo trousers, dungarees, t-shirt dresses, and joggers can all be flattering if the fit is correct. Like you’ve seen above, the best loungewear outfits can be transformed into easy street style looks with just a few additions – like shoes and bags.

So as long as you remember simplicity, fit, and versatility, your loungewear looks will definitely be on point. For more style tips for casual weekend outfits, or other fashion obstacles, reach out to our team of professional stylists. We love to hear from you, and look forward to helping you make the most of your wardrobe!

How To Style A Scarf

Tags

, , , , , , , ,

fur-scarf-feature-image-style-doctors-personal-stylistsIf you’re like the majority of women, you probably have a box or a bag or a hanging carousel of scarves that you’ve collected over the years. Maybe you wear some of them, and maybe you haven’t touched them in six months. Style Doctors wants you to utilise your scarves to their highest potential, so that’s why we’re here with some helpful advice and styling tips on how to wear a scarf.

Spring Cleaning

Alright, it doesn’t need to be spring time. But you do really need to go through your scarves and pick and choose which ones you actually wear and which ones you don’t really like. If you have 30 scarves hanging on the back of your bedroom door that you don’t wear anymore, they’re just taking up space. What’s more, someone else could be enjoying those scarves! So hand them down to family members or friends who you think would like them.

Know Your Scarves

Do you favour the thinner, pussy-bow-type scarves, or are you more of a blanket scarf girl? Do you rock the infinity scarf or prefer your scarves to hang down long on either side? Maybe you’re owning all of these styles! And that’s fine, but it’s important to know that you cannot wear all scarves the same way. They need to be styled differently based on shape, size, fabric, and print/colour.

Thin scarves can be worn delicately around the neck, sometimes tied in a bow or small knot. These usually come in silks or satin-y materials for a very romantic look.

Infinity scarves are very casual, and usually come in knits or cotton blends. These are great for accessorising a winter coat when you’re out and about, because they usually do create noticeable volume that can be distracting if worn alone. Pair yours with your coat or a jacket, and switch it out for a statement necklace once you get to where you’re going.

Here are some examples we’ve put together of how you can wear your favourite scarves:

styling-scarves-grey-classic-scarf-belted

Mint Velvet scarf | Michael Kors drawstring trousers | French Connection t-shirt | Karen Millen belt | Karen Millen coat | Kurt Geiger heels | Mango earrings

Classic Scarves can be in any material; usually a cotton or wool blend. It tends to be pretty long and open at each end, unlike the infinity scarf. These are perfect for wrapping around the neck in different knot styles, or letting fall loose on either side. You can also belt your classic scarf to create a sharper waist definition.

Blanket Scarves are a huge trend right now, and perfect for the colder winter months. They’re large in size, like a blanket, and are usually a heavier material like wool or something similar. They often come in pretty neutral hues and patterns, so they present the perfect opportunity to accessorise even more. Wear it like an open cape, or belt it for waist definition.

Here are some examples we’ve put together of how you can wear your favourite scarves:

styling-scarves-skinny-scarf

Hallhuber high waisted skirt | Hobbs blouse | MAC lipstick | Carvela trainers | Topshop scarf | Topshop coat | Calvin Klein clutch

Be creative with your scarves. Play with different colours, fabrics, styles and patterns to see which ones work best for you. Try wrapping scarves around your head like a turban, or through your hair like a colourful woven braid. Wear them around your waist like a belt or tie them to your favourite handbag. If you need advice when it comes to styling your scarves, or other winter accessories, reach out to our friendly styling team! We love to hear from you.
