Iconic Style Tips


If you follow us over on our Facebook page you’ll have seen that we’ve been asking you what has been the best style advice your Mum has given you over the years.

From ‘less is more’ through to ‘don’t show your underwear’ we’ve loved the pearls of wisdom you’ve been sharing and it certainly goes to show that Mum really does know best.

Today we look at style lessons from iconic women that we can all apply today.

“If your hair is done properly and you’re wearing good shoes you can get away with anything.” 

- Iris Apfel

Get the fundamentals right (in this case hair and shoes in Iris Apfel’s opinion) and the rest will flow. We all know how awful we feel if we’re having a bad hair day or if our shoes are scuffed and worn. Take care with the basics and you will look inevitably look put-together and feel much more confident as a result.

“You can’t control how other people see you or think of you. But you have to be comfortable with that.”

- Helen Mirren

We love this! All too often we all worry about what other people may think of us and how we dress. If you can shake this off and dress for yourself we can guarantee that your confidence and happiness will shine through - making you the best dressed person in the room, no matter what you’re wearing!

“Life is a party, dress like it.” 

- Audrey Hepburn

How often have you saved an item of clothing for ‘best’ only for it never to see the light of day? We love this advice from Audrey Hepburn - how fabulous would it be if we all dressed up every day?!The world would certainly be a much more glamorous place! Now we’re not suggesting you wear your ball gown to walk the dog, but perhaps next time the occasion calls for it, go to town a little and wear that fabulous dress/blouse/bag that you’ve been keeping for a special occasion. Beautiful clothes deserve to be shared with the world!

“Attitude is everything.” 

- Diane von Furstenburg

Isn’t it just? No matter your age, dress size or clothing budget, how you wear your clothes and the attitude you adopt really is everything! Adopt a positive, fun and optimistic attitude and this will flow through to your style and best of all, a change of attitude to how you dress doesn’t cost a penny!
