This summer, our favourite chic celebrity, Nadia Sawalha, has shared six subtle style tips that will have you looking and feeling fabulous.
She has covered off everything from necklines right down to feet to help you create the style that sets you out from the crowd.
From Your Neckline…
Drawing attention to the neckline is a great way to put emphasis on a woman’s best feature – her face. As Nadia demonstrates, there are a number of subtle ways to achieve this; so subtle people won’t even notice what you’re doing.
One trick is to look for jewelled necklines to bring out the sparkle in your eyes. Another is to use contrasting colours on the strap and necklines to make your skin look brighter. You can also use ticker lines to minimise the appearance of broader shoulders.
To Your Shape…
With the sunshine comes skirts and dresses and as Nadia says, it should also bring out the shapewear. There is no need to be hesitant about using it as it can be a life saver ahead of the big night out. It is perfect to achieve a smooth silhouette look that will flatter your figure.
But whilst dresses and skirts are ideal for your classic look, you can’t beat a good pair of jeans – the trick is to find your perfect pair though and this is where you can have a lot of fun. As someone who has spent a lot of time enjoying fashion, of course Nadia will advocate trying on numerous different jeans to find your right pair. Whilst some styles will look great on the hanger or manikin, you need to be true to your body and what works for you.
Never forget the smaller details like your accessories. These can inject life and colour into an outfit, take a dress from casual to classic or give your style balance. Attention to this detail is vital for Nadia who advocates using contrasting colours to add emphasis.
Oh, How Could We Forget the Shoes?
Stilettos are every woman’s dream but they are the ultimate pleasure/pain indulgence. Nadia has instead suggested an alternative – wedges. These come in many different styles and colours and they give you those all-important extra inches (oh and they also do a pretty good job of making your legs look slender).
