Free Styling Sessions
If you can't afford a stylist (which the large proportion can't), you can probably get to a store where they
will give you a personal stylist for free for a few hours. Topshop have this sort of service in some
of their larger stores in the UK, their Style Advisors need to be pre-booked, and its such a glamorous way to
shop too. You can either book online, or give your nearest store a ring to book an appointment.
Plus, with Topshop's fashion forward design team, you are sure to pick up some trendy goodies. Just make sure
that you buy something you really love, thats totally perfect. A good motto to keep is: 'if its 100% perfect, buy
it, if its anything less than that, try something else on'. Don't buy something merely because its practical, this
will give you a mumsy look, instead find the things you need but with a feminine/sexy edge.
Work out what colors suit you, and buy essential items in these colours. Most women will fall into one of these
two categories: earthy or clear.
The earthy girls look good in autumnal shades like reds, browns and greens, whereas the clear ladies will rock
pink, blue and purples. There are a couple of colors which transcend these rules, these are turquoise and dark
purple, which look good on pretty much every woman.
To find out which type you are, get out your clothes, accessories and some photographs. Work out which kind of
color suits you best by seeing which makes your skin tone and hair color really healthy looking.
Generally, those with redder tones to their hair, or freckles on their cheeks will be earthy, and darker haired,
clear skinned women are clear. But, there are some crossovers, so make sure to take lots of polaroids with
different coloured clothes on. Doing this with a friend is so much fun too, as you can each decide on which colors
look best. Make sure to write down which you think is best.
Oh, and remember that black or white looks good on only 3% of all women!
Stylish Hair is Essential
Your best asset, and certainly your most flirtatious feature is your hair. A good haircut and style can reel in
