Become a Dress Master of Misdirection
Powerful steps on how to create a stylish wardrobe.
Our philosophy is simple, feel stunning, every day
Step four: dress Shape
Hour glass, pear shape, apple shape, athletic, lean & long
Use balance & proportion to disguise & misdirect
Reveal & profile the areas of absolute gorgeousness, limiting the more challenging parts of your body. drape over your jelly belly, wrap over necklines to emphasise a great boob, take the eye down by wearing longer tops & jumpers.
Step five: dress Code
A few no, no, no!
Sheer tights with a fine knit or chunky knit dress is a no no, the contrast in material feels & looks wrong. It’s two contrasting seasons fighting for prominence. Chunky wool tights or opaque tights are the only answer!
Black tailored trousers and a nice top? Its a fallacy. Sorry ladies, there’s rarely such thing. If separates are your preference, be imaginative.
Black kills most colours due to absorbing the colour and neutralising the desired look. Leave black trousers to uniforms, functional, practical – ideal
Try wearing metallic or matching strappy sandals with cocktail dresses.
Black shoes with coloured dresses is the antithesis of bad wardrobe planning.
Metallics, shine and sparkle add glamour, enhance & reflect the dress colour.
Leggings under a size 12 – do what you want, the world is your one big jegging, legging jamboree – just please no camel toe…
Anything over a size 12 requires a two-inch warning. Only acceptable between a longer tunic, top or jumper when tucked into long boots – flat or high. But only two inches of leggings, we know this to our detriment. Leggings show no mercy. Avoid mid-calf length leggings they cut at the thickest part of the leg and emphasise this area.
Boobies need v-necks like ducks need water, but just a bit more. High necks will give you a shelf appearance.
No rucksacks with big boobies – nobody needs that extra baggage. A hand held handbag is far more flattering to bring the eye line down & lengthen the look. Boobs are great so let them feature in a gorgeous way.
Layering is the secret to clever styling. Light coats are necessary for a casual look, drape wraps over knitwear. Knee length coats and jackets are often a better solution.
Jelly belly, it’s a badge of life, best kept in firm holding knickers! Give your silhouette a chance for a smooth definition and clothes will flow over instead of clinging showing the bulges. Be wobble free with swagger stomach.
No big boobs, no worries, backs are also sensual. A low-cut dress draping down to the waistline is a total showstopper, elegant & timeless – err … did we mention perhaps drop the bra – now that would be a disaster.
Don’t mix your metallics, silver embellishments on your jumper, use silver jewellery.
Metallics, silver, platinum, steel, pewter, are a cool colour, gold, rose gold, bronze or – god forbid – brass are warm shades.
Animal skin. Oh yes, we all love animal print, don’t mix too many together, one piece is good, 5 is not quite as subtle.

Step seven: dress by colours
Complementary are opposites on the colour wheel (see above). These include red and green, violet and yellow, blue and orange.
On the colour wheel, they seem quite striking and daring, but in reality, these shades work well together and won’t seem as statement as you may first think.
Monochromatic shades are those of a single colour in various gradients. They work well because the look is easy on the eye. They are a solution for appearing leaner.
Jet Black/white chocolate cookie
Moss green with mint green
Navy & baby blue
Berry & pink
Slate grey & dove grey
Brown & beige
When two or three shades are side by side on the colour wheel, they are known as analogous colours, like red, orange and yellow. These work well together because naturally, they blend into one another.
Traditionally, we’ve been told to keep red and pink separate as they have varying tonal values. It works as a striking colour clash.
The term triadic is given to three shades in the colour wheel that are equal distance apart from each other. Pink, green and orange are good examples of this. A daring combination that will get you noticed
Understanding colours and where they sit on a colour wheel is going to change the way you currently dress, coordinate and purchase.
The natural order of colour is red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet. If the two ends of this list are connected, the traditional colour wheel is created.
This is the easiest way to understand how different colours work together, every outfit you co-ordinate with the wheel in mind will match.
Don’t invent it, nature dressed it!
Hue is the colour.
Tints add white to a colour to make it lighter. Your clothes will be less intense, pastel shades, calmer & quieter colours.
Shades are created when black is added to a colour, it will give a rich intensity to clothing.
Tone adds grey to the colour, so depending on the strength of black or white added, the clothes can be lighter or darker. Tones reveal subtle qualities and are more often how we see colours in every day.
