It's been a while! Somehow I missed sending 2 newsletters and I've only just made the end of September (ok, so it's now the beginning of October, but I'm pretending it's still September)! Really -- where does time go?
Back in June and July I had a wonderful time in the UK visiting family and friends. The weather was amazingly warm and dry, so I didn't use many of the usual layers I'd packed for this trip (I'm not complaining). If you didn't see it at the time you can catch up with the photos of the outfits I wore here on Instagram. The capsule wardrobe I created was the best yet. I often get bored with a limited wardrobe, but this year I had enough variety -- it worked well, but wasn't too much to carry.
I recommend you get an understanding of what's new and what's still on trend this year before you review your wardrobe for the upcoming fashion season. I'm certainly not suggesting you adopt every trend, but it really does help keep your wardrobe contemporary. If you've been maintaining your wardrobe regularly you won't need to buy many new pieces to keep your look fresh and modern. Sometimes all you need to do is wear your clothes in slightly different combinations. (Of course you may need more if your weight has changed, or your lifestyle needs are very different).
To help you understand the new fashion season this month I've got trend articles for you. I've got you covered whether you're going into spring and summer or autumn and winter. (You'll find the links below).
The next step is to list the activities and events you know you have coming up over the next 3 months or so, then go into your wardrobe with current trends and your lifestyle requirements in mind to review your wardrobe for the new season. If you need it, you'll find the link to my wardrobe workout articles below.
Do contact me if you'd like help with discovering your best colours, finding your style, editing your wardrobe (or creating a travel wardrobe), and shopping. I can help you in person if you're in Sydney, or online if you're elsewhere (I have a new online color analysis tool that makes it easier to assess colors from photos).
This time of year is busy for me, but I do still have 1 spot at the end of October and availability from mid November.
If you'd like to talk to me about what you need to do to update or upgrade your style I'm now offering complimentary 20 minute Style Makeover Action Plan consultations (so new it's not on my website yet). Simply reply to this email and let me know where you are and any days or times that are best for you and I'll get back to you.
Also, if you're in Sydney you'll often find me working at Decjuba in Avalon Beach on Saturday and Monday afternoons. I can't believe what fun I'm having there! You're welcome to drop by and say hello!
Enjoy this month's Style Snippets. Yours in style
