Dressing right takes strategy we just can’t wear what we want in order to look our best.
My name is Michaela and I shall be writing a regular fashion and style column for 50connect. Over the coming months we’ll be looking at what you should consider when you are buying clothes.
What does she know? You may be asking. Well, I am the co- founder of Joy of Clothes, which aims to make it easy and fast to find the clothes that work for you, your colouring and your body shape. You can choose from a wide range of women's clothes retailers and fashion designers - from high end retailers such as net-a-porter, Selfridges, Harrods to high street retailers such as LK Bennett, Coast and Reiss. I think we've created a unique method of looking for lines that will create balance and harmony in your overall appearance.
I have always been passionate about giving women the relevant advice and the tools to dress themselves in the best way, to create a streamlined look using a woman’s individual body shape and colouring. Now, with the help of my website and interactive tools can bring my skills and experience to a broader audience, and empower women everywhere with the expert know-how they require to dress with complete confidence for every occasion. One of your interactive tools is STYLE ME an exclusive fashion software enables you to build your own avatar based on your body shape and colouring, you can then "virtually try on" thousands of recommended styles and colours before clicking to buy similar styles online. Over 3000 looks have been already created. And the other one is our new online fashion STYLE QUIZ, that makes it even easier for women to discover the styles , clothes and trends which flatter their body shape.The Style Quiz asks women sixteen questions about their style personality, preferences , celebrities and body features. Joy of Clothes then prepares a personal style file including advice on what to wear for their body shape, which colours make them look and feel slimmer and younger, which celebrities share their body shape and personal colouring and finally personal stylist picks from top retailers including Net-a-Porter, Matches Fashion, Harrods, Reiss, LK Bennet, and Coast. These stylist picks are updated every week so women never need to shop alone.
Dressing right takes strategy we just can’t wear what we want in order to look our best. Dressing right is all about creating visual balance in your look. There are an infinite number of physical features and each person has their own unique combination of these. When it comes to looking good, it’s not your size or shape that matters, it’s the fit of your clothes. But fit doesn’t equal suitability.
We have created a unique method of looking for lines that will create balance and harmony in your overall appearance. Fashion and style will allow for flexibility and creativity. These rules apply to everyone no matter what age, life style, work or play or budget. The goal is to create the illusion of a perfect body shape and the most perfect body shape is the neat hour glass figure, because it is the most balanced in its proportion. Therefore all the other body shapes follow this guide line to create body harmony. Joy of Clothes will make it easier to analyse current and upcoming fashion trends by eliminating the ones that simply don’t work for you.
My ebook is called Style Me- your personal stylist", that is currently available on ITUNES and AMAZON. This ebook all about how to create visual balance, how to create visual balance in your look, how to create your own STYLE DNA and that dressing right takes strategy.
