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
