Hello April: Colour & Style Updates

Wishing you all a wonderful start to the month of April! Let's talk latest trends and colour combinations.

For many of us, Easter is a joyous time travelling for a short break, or otherwise enjoying time at home catching up with family and friends. Not quite as formal as Christmas, but still a great excuse for dressing up - if you enjoy it of course. Pastels are often associated with Easter: shades that some of us will find easier to wear than others. Read on to find out how to get the very best out of pastels.

On Trend this Spring: Let's talk about Denim



Denim is back with a vengeance this year. One tip we always pass on to our clients is to check your bottom in the mirror before purchasing a new pair of jeans. Pockets really do make a difference. If you are lacking curves, choose jeans with contrasting stitching, in fact, the more detail, the better - as it will give you extra volume creating the appearance of a more shapely figure. You could also consider other embellishment and embroidery on the back pockets. If you are blessed with beautiful curves and don’t wish to draw attention, look for tonal stitching on a neat pocket. Or better still, no detail at all (and always, always look for stretch in your denim).

Pretty Pastels


Love ‘em or hate ‘em, there’s always a pastel around at this time of year. The key is working out how to wear it to flatter your own personal colouring type.


  • Lights: this is your territory and you look amazing in pastel pinks, greens, yellows and blues. Team with one of your lighter neutrals such as stone.

  • Deeps: you will no doubt find that pastels worn on their own, wash you out. Add a little oomph to your look with the addition of a deeper shade such as charcoal or navy.

  • Warms: stay away from the cooler pastel blues and pinks. Instead try pastel yellow and team with aqua for an interesting combination.

  • Cools: cooler pastels work on you. The key is to add contrast to balance out your look. Try pastel pink with fuchsia or teal.

  • Clears: you too need to add contrast to pastels. Tap into your jewel tones such as sapphire and emerald green

  • Softs: mint is a fabulous pastel and teamed with pewter for a tone-on-tone look is perfect.

2023: It’s All About The Statement Necklace


2023 is going big and bold in the jewellery department and in particular, the statement necklace. It’s a perfect accessory for a simple dress and will add interest to a plain t-shirt or top. The key is to remember your scale.

Someone who is of a small scale may want to avoid very large necklaces. Look for something that works with your frame. It can still be chunky, but smaller and neater.

If you have a large bust, make sure that your necklace doesn’t rest on this area. It will only serve to highlight this! Instead choose something on a shorter chain that will lift the eye, and be sure to keep your neckline open.
