Every so often we need a reboot. It may be your career, your social life or your relationship. It could be a new health and fitness plan or redecoration of your house. You might also be stuck in a style rut. If you’re feeling down about your sartorial choices, here are some quick and easy fashion fixes to elevate your style.

A Red Lip       Do you always go for a nude lip? Or have you been stuck with the same pink for years? If so, it’s time to revamp your lip colour. If you wear the same hue every day, you’re stuck in a rut! Why not try a bolder colour? A red lip may sound scary to nude fans, but there really is a red lip to suit every skin tone. The rule of thumb is: if you have warm undertones choose a red with an orange or yellow tone and if you have cool undertones, choose a red which has blue undertones. Also, cool blue tones make teeth appear whiter. And if you have a very dark complexion go with deep plum reds and oxblood. Keep eye make simple and add a hint of blush.

An Inverted Bob       Don’t try and rock the same hairstyle for the rest of your life. It just won’t work! Follow in the footsteps of Victoria Beckham, Charlize Theron and Jennifer Lawrence and update your hair with an inverted bob. This style is shorter at the back and longer at the front. Layers are stacked at the back and left long at the front to frame the face. The look works well both tousled and straight. Highlights add another dimension. A fresh new cut is a great way to create a modern fix to your style. Who wants to be stuck with the same haircut for the rest of their life? Take the leap and go for the chop. Eliminating all your dead ends is the easiest way to feel instantly updated.

It’s All About The Details       We’re always told accessories make an outfit, but they are often left as an afterthought. This season, think about how you can use accessories to step forward in style. Don’t forget the golden rule to use your BeltNBags to make the outfit. Think of accessories as the spicy extras that make a good food dish great. This season smaller bags remain a fashion staple. Go structured for the chicest of looks. And choose plush hardware and cool prints. Invest in luxe belts to create different styles to your capsule wardrobe. Choose a studded belt for gothic chic, a skinny belt for Parisian flair and a wide leather belt for Hollywood glam. Use different belts with jeans, dresses, shirts and skirts for an instant fashion fix. Here are my tips on how to build a beautiful jewelery collection too. It’s the small details that can transform an outfit from regular to spectacular.


A slouchy dress       Lounge and sportswear have been dominating the catwalk for some time now. Invest in a slouchy midi dress for standout style this season. Pair with worn-in sneakers during the day and ankle boots for a tougher look. Nip in the waist with a belt or leave it loose for a relaxed look. Dress it up with a fitted biker jacket or elevate it to evening wear with statement rings and a necklace. A slouchy dress can be both feminine and edgy. It’s the ultimate style staple for Fall/Winter 2016.

Happy styling! I can’t wait to see your new look!
