“Polished”. “Put-together”. “Stylish”.
If we had a dollar for every time we heard our clients utter these words, when asked how they want to look each day, well, let’s just say that we’d be very, very comfortable.
Most women, it seems, are looking for that magic formula, that bit of je ne sais quoi. So that when they leave the house each morning, they are looking their very brightest and bestest self. In basic terms, they want to look like they have their shit together.
How you look each morning CAN determine where your day is headed.
Whatever you’re doing – heading to the office/the school run/coffee with the girls, we’ve come up with a little list of our top tips to have you looking your best every day. You’re welcome.
It’s been said “That Failing to Plan, is Planning to Fail“. Well, this is a little dramatic but looking good is a whole lot easier when you’ve allowed yourself some time to think about what you are going to wear. The night before is ideal. This saves SO much grief in the morning. Smart girls read the memo the night before. They plan it. They check it. They lay it out for the morning.
Know your wardrobe
Keep your wardrobe up-to-date by going through it every month or so. Throw out or donate the ill-fitting, the stained, the out-of-date. You want to try and make sure that your every-day wardrobe only contains things that you actually wear and that you actually like to wear.
Get down to basics
OK the term “capsule wardrobe” gets bandied around a lot but it really is a simple way to get on top of your wardrobe and lose that “oh God” feeling everytime you open your closet. Make sure you have all the “classic” basics. The white top, the grey top, the black top, the classic blazer, the dark wash jeans, the blue jeans etc. In other words, the pieces that tie everything else together. It’s all well and good having that beautiful amazing colourful embroidered jacket in there but seriously, if you don’t have anything to wear with it, what’s the point?
Give yourself Time
If you find yourself rushing out the door each morning with damp hair clinging to your face whilst clutching a slice of toast, you need to back up sister. By starving yourself of time in the morning you are doing yourself a big fat disservice. Seriously, It can be kind of magical when you have the time in the morning to blow-dry your hair, gently apply your make-up, all the while a gentle smile playing on your lips as you contemplate the day ahead. Well, maybe that’s a bit much but : Do yourself a BIG favour. Set. The. Alarm. Clock. Earlier.
That final glance
Our final tip. Don’t leave without giving yourself the “once-over” in the mirror. Check your hair, teeth, make sure your skirt isn’t tucked into your undies, plaster on that smile and shine. Brightly.
