Spring is in the air and a new season means a fresh approach to our wardrobes. This season is not about spend, spend, spend it is about making careful purchases to fill gaps in your wardrobe according to your budget and revisiting items in your wardrobe in a creative way.

In the UK we throw out 1.5 million tonnes of clothes every year and collectively we spend £47 billion on clothes each year.

At Colour Me Beautiful the philosophy is

  • Buy less, buy better
  • Don’t save your clothes for best – wear and enjoy them now
  • Think comfort, practicality and cost per wear

Look at the items in your wardrobe and think about mixing colours together in a different way to update your look. See whether altering the length of a garment will make it more flattering for you. Does everything in your wardrobe work with your own colouring? If not, can you rescue any items to make them work? If you don’t know which are your best colours, contact me for a colour analysis. If you’re not sure which clothing lengths work for your body shape and proportions then please get in touch to arrange a style consultation.

If you need to purchase key pieces for your wardrobe then now is the time to buy as this season there are currently lots of colourful jackets and trouser suits available and you will find the widest choice of colours to suit your hair colour, complexion and eye colour right now.

Creative style personalities will love the foulard print or scarf print trend. Search out printed scarves from your own or your families’ wardrobes and repurpose them into stylish tops and skirts. Seek out style and sewing books such as Chic on a Shoestring by Mary Jane Baxter for inspiration.
