Styling tips for fashion perfection
Highlight your assets: Do you have creamy-porcelain skin or a golden-dark complexion? Try wearing bright jewel-tones to show off your amazing colouring. If your skin tone is more in the middle, go for earthy tones that compliment your pretty medium complexion. And don't be afraid to show some skin! If you've got great legs, show them off. Do you love your shoulders? Then wear something off-the-shoulder.
Don’t blindly follow trends: Not all trends are for everyone. The trick is picking the trend that works for you, and forgetting the ones that don’t.
Accessorise: Statement jewellery and shoes are a girl’s best friends. Accessories can make an outfit pop and turn even a thrown-together number into a look that is in-style and fabulous.
Get the size right: That goes for underwear, too. Feeling great in an outfit is 90% fit. Choose underwear that you're comfortable in and that looks good under clothes, and don’t be afraid of tight fitting garment! If it doesn’t fit perfectly, but you love it, take it to a tailor.
Know your measurements: This is especially important for online shoppers. Sizes vary wildly between stores, and even if you convert from international sizes, knowing your exact measurements will always help you get it right. Most online stores will have size guides with cm or inch measurements.
