If you are conscious of your upper arms, you are not alone. This has been a much requested video. Firstly, I am not a fan of the terms 'bingo wings, flabby arms, fat arms etc etc.' It does nothing for ones confidence. So if you are using these terms, I highly recommend cutting them out using language that is kinder to yourself. With that said, I understand that some people do want to cover up their arms and so my latest video will help you do that. Enjoy and happy styling, Sa
Summer is on the way along with warmer days and a lighter, brighter wardrobe. Shorts, skirts and sleeveless tops are lining the rails in the shops but not everyone is keen on showing off more skin when the temperatures rise. Style can be a tricky thing to navigate when you want to keep cool but cover up. There's a few points that you want to keep in mind when adding to your Summer wardrobe, namely colours and fabrics. I discuss these in more detail in my latest video along wi
Sound familiar? Love it, couldn't wear it seems to sum up my thoughts of the festive season. With lockdowns being once again imposed my outfits that I had bought or planned to wear over Christmas and New year would only ever be seen from the comfort of my own home and via social media. I am sure many of you can relate. Whether you missed out on weddings, the Christmas office party or just raising a glass to the new year, we all missed out on occasions this year. As a little h
A shirt dress is one of the most versatile pieces you can have in your wardrobe. Great for all seasons and the best part? They are universally flattering, much like the wrap style dress. They are also readily available in both high street stores as well as designer stores. Shirt dresses tend to be worn in one particular way, buttoned down and perhaps tied with a belt. However there are numerous ways in which they can be worn. I demonstrate several of them in my latest video.
If there's one thing worth investing in it's a good Winter Coat. Do you know what styles suit you? Maybe an oversized teddy coat or a classic trench? Knowing what suits your shape is key if you want to avoid making expensive mistakes. In my latest video I share some of my most worn Winter coats as well as one that I am currently in two minds about keeping or selling and I would love your thoughts. Let me know what you think and don't forget to like the video if you enjoyed i
Are you as obsessed with Catherine O'Hara's character, Moira Rose, as I am? Not only a funny, eccentric and ostentatious individual, but also an absolute style icon! When I find an inspirational person like this, I enjoy breaking down the style elements to get an understanding of the thought process behind what the wardrobe department envisioned. I discuss colour, silhouette, and style personality of Moira Rose in my latest video and even have a go at emulating her style myse
I distinctly remember a friend asking me 'Sarah, how old is that top? I remember that from years ago?' as I wore one of my favourites. I recall feeling a sense of shame and embarrassment at the thought that someone might consider my clothes 'old'. My top was old but it was well kept and certainly didn't look old. The white was still white, it had maintained its shape well and it wasn't a high fashion item so it couldn't have looked out-of-date or dowdy. Yet, it was the last
As Autumn makes its presence known we are seeing the chunky knits and Winter woolies adorn the the racks of the shops. With a new season, of course, comes a new trend. This time it's all about the shoulders. Shoulder pads that is! The trending silhouette is that of the inverted triangle, a strong, structured appearance on the upper half. But is it really worth spending your money on it? As always, I encourage my clients to 'buy less, choose well and make it last.' With that
Who is The Style Coach™ anyway? Over the last few weeks I have noticed the numbers who are subscribed to my YouTube and Instagram increasing and I figured it would be a good idea to get to know who it is behind The Style Coach™. I don't know about you but I like to know a little bit about the person behind the product or service before I hand over my hard earned cash. I have spent over a year making videos on how to dress for your body shape, how to wear the best colours for
Body shapes come in many beautiful forms. Most of us are familiar with the hourglass and pear shape but we don't often hear people talking about how our bodies are in terms of their proportions. For those lucky enough to have longer legs and a shorter torso dressing and looking balanced is easy. However, if you have shorter legs in proportion to your torso you might like the idea of playing around with layering and styles to bring more balance to your shape. In this video I s
Can you keep up with the ever changing trends? Well, it's a new week which means a new trend. This time it is all about the statement necklace and chunky chains. If you have been following me for a while you will know I am not a trend follower or a slave to fashion. I prefer to develop a style that is personal, unique and has a bit more longevity than just a season. In my latest video I talk about the latest trend, who should invest in it and how to style it. I hope you enjoy
Every now and then I take a deep dive into the style of a celebrity. It can be a source of inspiration and who doesn't love learning more about some of the biggest star's style? I do a little colour analysis as well as a style personality analysis of the chosen celebrity. This week I took a closer look into the style of Jennifer Lopez. She has been somewhat of a style icon for many years and seems to be defying age too! Knowing what suits oneself goes a long way towards this.
Whether you are looking for reading glasses or sunglasses it can be a tricky business finding the frames that suit you best. There are many things to think of beyond the shape of your face which is where most people start and finish their search for the perfect specs. However, there are a few more things I like to take into consideration when it comes to choosing glasses. Beyond finding the right shaped glasses for your face I think it's always wise to take into consideration
