Spend and save shopping tips


, , , , , , , , , , ,

soend-and-save-stylist-tips-for-shopping-style-doctors-personal-stylistsThere is one true love in my life, bound by an breakable partnership; Sir.Val, my Valentino shoulder bag! And what makes me smile every single time I peer to my side and see him looking as blissful as the day I first acquired him (no change to spare from £600) is that he is one of 3 High end designer products in my wardrobe.

Consider me the Matchmaker of high street fashion meets high end. I am not an on-trend kinda gal, however if the fashion at the time suits my wardrobe personality then high street is my bestie. How to blend the two is the task most get confused with. You may also wonder ‘how do I lower my acceptable level of quality to incorporate a pair of ripped £50 jeans? Think about your staple ‘go-to’ items; the pieces that require timeless quality. I would invest in items such as handbags, scarfs, the perfect knit, belts and jacket/coats. These pieces are ones that you would pull out every season and still expect them to feel well loved yet brand new.

How many of you have over 15 scarves? And if you say no then allow me to call your bluff. Yet, how often would we instantly reach for the same 2 or 3? This is because that ‘favourite’ scarf naturally works with our complexion and also makes every outfit look ‘WOW’!

Now, how do I put that timeless cashmere knit crew (I love a Ralph Lauren turtle neck) with a lower quality, high fashion item? Simple- get creative! Find amazing skirts, trousers and printed bottoms in places such as Topshop or New Look. As an example, I would happily pair that perfect knit with an Oasis pleated midi skirt. Top the look off with a think waist belt and ankle boots.

One last notable tip- if your pockets are not so deep and you want to experiment with top quality designer products then start digging through your local vintage store. There is a good reason why Pollini and Bally bags are found in abundance, it is because they stand the test of time! Quality is everything, even if it is second hand.

Dressing for your new shape after a baby


, , , , , , , , ,

back-to-work-workwear-style-inspiration-style-doctors-personal-shoppersWe understand that after pregnancy when your shape often changes, you may not be back to your previous size, your wardrobe no longer ‘feels right’ anymore. At Style Doctors we are all about dressing for the here and now and whatever shape you are now we encourage you to embrace it and dress with confidence.

Try not to compare yourself to what you used to look like, this will only cause you to be dissatisfied. If you feel comfortable and happy with your shape and outfit, it will show. Don’t forget that if your shape changes those jeans you had when you were 22 might not even be in style anymore let alone fit. Your wardrobe doesn’t need to change much but it’s important not try and squeeze into your old clothes as it will just make you feel uncomfortable and also it just does not look good. So no holding onto the past and take the change as being something new and exciting (after all shopping is fun). The same applies if you’ve lost weight after having a baby or if your whole body shape has change, which it often can.

Back to work

When getting used to your new shape it can be difficult to know what to wear for that first day back at work. Don’t worry, we will now share with you some style advice that will leave you wondering why you were ever worried about what you were going to wear. Going back to work is never the most exciting thought after time away but if you have a stylish new wardrobe you’ll be delighted to get back to the office to show everyone your new look.


Main Image: Standard | Shop the look: Floral blouse | Blazer | Cigarette trousers | White blouse | Lipstick | Belt | Nail varnish | Burgundy bag | Watch| Pointed ballet flats

When making your new investments a classic jacket is one of your main pieces, be wise in you colour choice as this needs to compliment your various work looks. Whether you’re a pencil skirt or cigarette trouser kind of girl, there will be plenty of different styles to flatter you new figure. Lots of women make the mistake of wearing baggy clothing thinking this will hide any parts of their body they dislike, when actually you should be shaping and defining your figure (this can be done really well by adding a belt). Having a selection of blouses will switch up your look, from a crisp white shirt to muted coloured prints – you will look professional as well as stylish. To finish off all you’re missing is that comfy and chic pair of shoes and a timeless handbag to carry all your essentials.

Most of all it’s all about the fit. Once you have a wardrobe full of clothes that fit and flatter, you’re ready for anything.

If you’re struggling to dress for your new shape and would like to know what would work best to flatter your figure and boost your confidence, book a session with one of our expert stylists. Whether you’re looking for a new work wardrobe or even outfits for everyday wear, we have various style packages to suit any of your needs.

Autumn 2015 Make-up Tips


, , , , , , ,


Autumn is around the corner and it’s time to start thinking about switching up your make-up bag. Swap the bronzed glow and embrace the pink flush (perfect for an English rose look). If you struggle to change your make-up routine and would like to introduce different products and looks, we’ll be sharing some of the latest beauty trends with you, but firstly I’d like to share the most important tip which is to always apply an SPF sunscreen before anything else! It’s vital to protect your skin in every season (even winter!)

Make-up Tips

Minimal makeup is very practical for when you don’t have a lot of time (especially before work) so luckily for you it’s one of the new trends for this season. The barely there look is perfect for enhancing your natural beauty. To create a subtle look I’d suggest a light coverage for a fresh skin feel (caking foundation never looks good), a soft rose blush will also give you that bit of colour you will need in the colder months. To enhance the eyes a light matte colour shadow will be enough to define the crease, along with a precise eyeliner flick but ever so slightly as you want it to look as natural as possible. To finish the look off or you’ll need is a coat of mascara to open up the eyes and a soft pink or nude lipstick.


Shop the pieces: Brush | Lipstick | Eye Shadow | Mascara | Nail Polish | Blusher | Eyeliner | Foundation

The cold means you can start introducing darker colours back into your life including your make-up products and the best way of doing this is with the lips. This season it’s all about the darker reds and berry coloured lipsticks and the biggest trend is blackberry lips, which we know is quite bold but as long as you keep the lips the focal point and the rest of your make-up simple it should work a treat.

If you prefer to keep your lips simple and have your eyes as the accentuated feature on your face, the smokey eye look is perfect. Opting for matte greys or brown tones will give you a softer feel in comparison to black which can sometimes look quite heavy. When applying eye shadows it’s important to blend the product as much as possible to ensure that there are no harsh lines, finding the right blending brush that works for you is the first step.

If you would like to know more make-up trends or just need help finding the right beauty products for you book a session with one of our make-up artists. They will pick out all the staple items you need and also show you how to apply them and they’ll leave you looking and feeling amazing for the new season.

Win This Amazing Perspex Art Deco Necklace


, , , , , , , ,

art-deco-style-perspex-necklace-competition-style-doctors-personal-stylistsWe’ve teamed-up with talented jewellery designer Sara Whittle for our latest style competition! We’re big fans of statement accessories at Style Doctors and you can win this amazing perspex Art Deco necklace by entering below.

About Whittle:

Whittle is a Portuguese brand established in 2013. The brand was created by Sara Whittle, Fashion Designer and Image consultant.

Each creation is the outcome of an adventure, a reflection of a continual cultural search for something unique. The alliance of creative ideas and a focus on detail are trademarks that set her individuality as a designer.

These pieces come from a inherent curiosity and the joy of creating, in an effort to combat the monotony and generate space for the original.

Her designs are understated yet refined. That can be worn more like an accessory than as jewellery. Providing an powerful contrast between the pieces themselves and the fabric they are worn with.

‘I studied fashion design in England and then I internship with Ann-Sofie Back and Fred Butler (Acessorize designer). I guess that was the moment I thought I actually didn’t want to be a fashion designer. After graduating I moved to my homeland Portugal where I did my last internship with Valentim Quaresma ( The #7 International talent support award winner) a conceptual jewellery designer. Working with him made me realize the importance of the branding surrounding a business.

Meanwhile making clothes kept me returning to accessories and I started assisting a few stylists who were asking me to make custom pieces for editorial shots. One year later I opened my own brand Whittle.

There is something really amazing about making accessories. People invest in things that have an impact in terms of fashion but aren’t as expensive. Today with the immeasurable amount of materials that you can choose to work with, combined with technology you can have excellent results’.


This is a striking collection inspired on Art Deco lines. Each piece is based on simplified geometric forms, made from Laser cut and engravedperspex.This necklace is also supported by jump rings (for the perfect fit) and ties up with a black satin ribbon that can be worn at various lengths. All jewellery is handmade in Portugal and will come to you beautifully packaged.

Width: 14.5 cm = 5.7 in
Lenght: 10.5 cm = 4.1 in

Style Competition – Win A Unique Statement Necklace


, , , , , , , ,


We’ve teamed-up with talented jewellery designer Martina at Isla Clay for our latest style competition! Her ceramic jewellery is totally unique and will finish off any outfit. We’re big fans of statement accessories at Style Doctors and you can win one of her amazing statement necklaces by entering below.

About Martina:

‘I create geometric ceramic jewellery using mostly white earthenware clay. The characteristics of my work are abstract, sometimes asymmetric shapes, carved with geometric patterns and coated with non-toxic colourful glazes. Sometimes the pieces are carefully planned using sketches, other times I let my intuition guide me when creating new pieces. Anything can spark a new idea but often the sources of inspiration for me are colours. I have always been amazed by how certain colours can complement each other, like good partners, they sort of bring the best out in each other. Once I have found such a combination the design often comes intuitively.’

The Necklace:

A beautiful ceramic statement necklace with carved geometric pattern in lime green. Made of earthenware clay and fired twice around 1000°C. The geometric pattern was carved while leather-hard and inlaid with black underglaze. The necklace is coated with non-toxic glazes. The black satin ribbon end with a silver plated toggle clasp. The necklace is light and comfortable to wear. The back where the necklace was touching the kiln was left unglazed.


Ribbon length including the clasp: 35cm, width 7mm. The ceramic piece is app. 9.5cm long, 5cm high and 4mm thick.

Finding your colour palette


, , , , , ,


Have you ever had a hard time choosing the right colour to wear and finding your colour palette? Trying to find the perfect colour that highlights your skin tone in just the right way? We have all been there. Deciding whether to get the jacket in white or black…while one makes you look more edgy, the other pops and grabs attention. There are many factors that go into choosing the right colour; how you feel, what others think and finding a balance between the two.

When asked what your favorite colour is, what do you say?  We may love many colours but the colour we choose when answering this question is usually a reflection of our current mood. For most of us, our colour preference is an ever changing and ever evolving state of mind. Whether you choose to wear black because it makes you look and feel more sophisticated or if you decide to wear red because it gives you a feminine and chic look, the colour you choose reflects your personality.


Choosing the right colour to wear can be a very daunting task. We tend to gravitate to the same colours over and over because we feel comfortable in them and like “playing it safe”. However, taking risks and going for different colours can be just the thing you need to add a little personality to your wardrobe. Wearing warm colours such as orange, yellow and red can accentuate your skin tone and make your eyes and face come alive. Neutral and cool colours such as white, black, grey and navy are much more versatile and match with all colours and colour combinations. Color mixing is also a great way to bring multiple colours together to create a complimentary or contrasting mix and to see how colours play off each other.

Whatever you decide to wear, always be sure you feel good in it. Don’t be afraid to try new colours and experiment. Just like our moods, our colour preferences fluctuate with the seasons, the weather and the occasion.

Book an online colour consultation here to make sure that you know exactly which colours work best for you.
