TIP 1: ENJOY THE MOMENT

Firstly, this is the most wonderful time of year, just the mere thought of wearing less is inspiring! We've all been looking through magazines etc, at what we 'should' all be wearing in the up coming months. As a rule, I never EVER like to totally embrace any new season's looks, from head to toe. I find, sometimes just a gentle nod in the right direction, can really, subtly, be all you need to bring your look up to speed! For me, as a rule of thumb, head to toe anything, be it vintage, high-end, or high-street almost immediately seems unfashionable and 'try hard'. Always, always incorporate diversity into your look, variation can make all the difference. I quote Oscar de la Renta, "Fashion is about dressing according to what's fashionable. Style is more about being yourself"

TIP 2: LOOK AT WHAT YOU'VE GOT!

Always good to check through your existing wardrobe first, begin to re-aquaint yourself with what you already have, fashion is cyclical, everything has been around before, so do check out for stuff you may already have. A fabulous piece you may already own that's crushed down at the back of your wardrobe, could be just the thing to influence and re-ignite in numerous new looks!

An e.g. of an old existing 'fringed jacket' which I already had and is a huge story this coming season. I haven't worn this in years, but, thrown together with a silk tee, skinny black flared jeans and a pair of stacked heels and I've instantly up-dated my look for this spring.
