THE STYLE LOUNGE | NEW YEAR // NEW STYLE RULES

This year it's time to tear up the fashion rule book and elevate your personal style, all the while being more considerate of the environment and aware of the harmful impact fast fashion has on our beautiful planet.

"The key to style is learning who you are" ~ Iris Apfel

Lavish Alice double breasted boyfriend suit in papayaSelf love, the most important rule of all. Spend time  each day getting to know and love yourself; leave that ego behind. The more you focus on yourself, you will care less and less what other people think, and that's when the fun in life really begins. Imagine being so confident within yourself that you could wear whatever you wanted because other people's opinions don't affect your decisions.

Female tailoring will give you a confidence boost. The power suit pictured in the beautiful shade of papaya is available for purchase on our website. Click to view

 

 

"Fashions fade, style is eternal" ~ Yves Saint Laurent

When shopping, consider the different ways that you can style an outfit; think long term style goals. "I've got nothing to wear" is probably the most commonly used phrase for a lot of women who also have a closet full of clothes! Purchase staple neutral garments, such as a this gorgeous bodice blazer suit (pictured below) and create different styles with it. Click here to shop the look

"Trendy is the last stage before tacky" ~ Karl Lagerfeld

Don't follow trends! Be savvy with your style, allow yourself to be inspired by what somebody's wearing and tailor to your own style, rather than copying trends that are on nearly every fast fashion website. The rate at which clothes are being produced to fulfill consumer demand is very harmful to the environment, consider how eco-friendly your style choices are - how much wear will you get out of them?

"Fashion is about dressing according to what's fashionable. Style is more about being yourself" ~ Oscar de la Renta

Have confidence in your style choices and don't allow the opinions of others to thwart your style. If you want to dress flamboyantly to do your weekly shop, do it! Have fun with styling and creating individual looks. Play around with your wardrobe and pair things that you normally wouldn't, you will be pleasantly surprised by what works, that you thought wouldn't!
