A huge part of being a leader of a nation, a company or a movement, is dressing the part. The role of leader is instantly attributed to people who look and act like leaders because what you wear tells other people how to treat you. So, if you want to be treated like a leader, then dress like a leader!Read more
It’s a huge confidence boost, wearing beautiful clothes makes you walk tall…
Wearing beautiful clothes and accessories is a massive incentive to look good. Just the feeling of fine fabrics and stunning design gives you confidence and it certainly makes you push your shoulders back and walk tall. Then all your internal organs breathe a sigh of relief as they suddenly have room to expand and start working properly. You start to feel really good and naturally you look even better.
Just look at all these lovely ladies (I was there, too!) who volunteered to model in a fashion show for Cancer Research UK – not one of them slouched her way along the catwalk! We each felt uplifted by the quality and feel of clothes themselves, and we all looked fabulous because we were all wearing the best colours for our skin tone.Read more
How many outfits? You have way more outfit combinations in your wardrobe than you can possibly imagine. For instance, when I was creating the notes for my Colour Analysis course, I came up with a list of 47 outfits using only 3 colours with 3 jackets, 4 tops, and 4 bottoms.
When I physically demonstrated this on the first live Personal Style event, I discovered that I had made a rather large boo-boo. The rather enthusiastic group of ladies stayed behind after the first day’s training and, using the actual jackets, tops and bottoms I’d brought along, they came up with more.

I just sat and watched them in amazement.Read more
In part 1 we asked, “What sort of special event is it?” and if you’ve received a ‘proper invitation’ then we’ve already discussed exactly what to wear. In Part 2 we looked at the colours to wear if you haven’t received such an informative missive. In Part 3 we looked at how to dress for your personality type. In Part 4 we discussed Step 1 – how your current wardrobe could potentially yield hidden treasure.
Now we’re going to complete this 5-part adventure. How to have a wardrobe that works for every occasion. You now have three piles of clothes from Step 1 of weeding out your wardrobe. So let’s complete the entire process with Step 2, what to do with the pile for removal, how to decide what to finally keep and how to make the most of what’s left.Read more
In part 1 we asked, “What sort of special event is it?” and if you’ve received a ‘proper invitation’ then we’ve already discussed exactly what to wear. In Part 2 we looked at the colours to wear if you haven’t received such an informative missive. In Part 3 we looked at how to dress for your personality type. Now you know what to wear. The next step is to find it.
Hidden treasure – First of all, check your own extensive wardrobe and see whether you haven’t already got something appropriate for this special event. If you have already sorted out the contents of your wardrobe, then you’ll already know exactly what you’ve got in there. If not, this could be the perfect opportunity to take the whole thing apart and discover some forgotten hidden treasure.Read more
