TIP OF THE DAY NO.23 – LOOKING GOOD – DRESSING WELL

It is true that many patterns tend to make one look older, especially floral prints. (Maybe this
has to do with memories of our grandmother’s aprons?) Other prints tend to overpower the
wearer. While shopping with one of my clients, she tried on a floral dress she liked. When
she looked in the mirror, she kept admiring the dress, never looking up at her face. I asked her
if she thought this dress did something for her. Now looking at herself, she had to admit that
the loud colours and the big flowers overpowered her
.If you fall in love with a print that is on the loud side, wear a solid colour next to your face, or
leave the print for the skirt. Here is a general rule that will guide you: if the pattern is small,
the colours can be bright and multiple, but as the print gets larger, the colours should become
lighter

.Note: Prints or designs of any kind require simple, quiet accessories in solid colours.

See you tomorrow

DRESS TO IMPRESS – PRINTS- ARE THEY RIGHT FOR YOU?

Hello Everyone

Some time ago I started to give you chapters of my book

and today I want to continue;

   WHAT PRINTS ARE RIGHT OR WRONG

To choose a suitable print that will enhance your colouring and personality is not easy. Many of them are too busy, too bright or too large. I was told that most men prefer solid colours, their reasons: “Prints make a woman look older” or “Prints make me think of curtains or tapestry>”

It is true that many patterns tend to make one look older, especially floral prints. (Maybe this has to do with memories of our grandmother’s aprons?) Other prints tend to overpower the wearer. While a woman client and I were shopping, we saw a dress made from a beautiful coloured floral material. She liked it so much that she tried it on. When she looked in the mirror, she kept admiring the dress, never looking up at her face. I asked her if she thought this dress did something for her. Now looking at herself, she had to admit that the loud colours and the big flowers overpowered her.

Anyone seeing this woman would have noticed the dress – but the wearer would never have been seen. In order to avoid being overwhelmed, choose a subdued print. A flattering print is one that is soft in colour or widely scattered.

If you fall in love with a print that is on the loud side, wear a solid colour next to your face.Leave the print for the skirt. Here is a general rule that will guide you: if the pattern is small, the colours can be bright and multiple, but as the print gets larger, the colours should become lighter.

Note: Prints or designs of any kind require simple, quiet accessories in solid colours.

Until tomorrow when we talk about FIT

                   STAY WELL AND LOOK YOUR BEST
