Hi Gals, hope your having a lovely weekend, the last 3 posts have all been Style Dispensary session' on how to wear these trends this S/S season.I invited you to ask any Style questions you might have in these 3 areas and to share your favourite colour combinations, Couture Millinery Atelier asked -
For several years I have wanted to purchase a dramatic red gown, but am afraid to do it, thinking that for me a platinum blonde, it would be too much, what do you suggest?
Answer - To stop red's looking too brash with platinum blonde hair, opt for orangey red's or red's with pink undertones. As in the picture above featuring the beautiful Marylin Monroe in her sweater.
Katie from 3rd Avenue Style asked-
Style Dilemma- So how does wearing clashing print's work if you are say not so petite? I love the clashing prints look but worry about adding extra pounds to my look!
Answer- Opt for wearing a dress in a smaller print and then create a panel down the centre by wearing a larger print in a cardigan of the same colour, thus elongating your shape with a paneled effect, simular colour's create a more groomed style, which is also flattering for more curvy women. The 2nd trick is to wear bold print on the hemline of your skirt or dress, thus drawing the eye down.
Avoid large print all over, horizontal print and print which divides the body up into too many sections, reducing the length of the body and increasing the width.
Jaimie from La vie J'aimie asked me where this top came from. This very stylish number was a summer 2009 buy from Boden, POWER to Boden's timeless look, that it still tick's all the boxes for dressing this S/S!
These picks are for KITTY over at Dollie Daydream who shared her lovely favourite colour combinations with me, pinks, peaches and creams.Soo pretty!
