Signature Styling #13


Many of you have popped into the shop these past few weeks looking for winter wear, quite understandably.  But while we do still have a selection of coats, knits and boots in store, our focus is now firmly on looking forward to the new season. 

This "...topsy-turvey approach" that we take in fashion is questioned by Vogue's Nicola Copping in their January issue.  And at the recent round of couture shows in Paris, New York Times columnist Stuart Emmrich wrote in A Tale of Two Seasons about how strange it was to be reviewing the spring styles in the snow!   

It's a subject that's often returned to, as the fashion world continues to stay at least one step ahead of the real world.  And as this state of affairs is likely to remain unchanged, here are my top tips to help manage the seasonal switchover, and ensure you don't miss a trick!     

Become a stealth shopper...
Find out when your favourite stores take delivery of their collections, as well as when their sales start.  A little forward planning will help ensure you're the first in the queue for the new styles.

Think trans-seasonal...
Separating clothes into spring/summer and autumn/winter is becoming less and less relevant as the line between the seasons increasingly  blurs.  Layering and some savvy styling will ensure your wardrobe works all year round.   

Holiday shop...
Many online fashion retailers now offer permanent Holiday Shops within their sites, making it possible to purchase summer or winter wear whatever the season. 

Get on the list...
Join our Wish List! If there's an item you're looking for, then simply let us know and we'll get in touch as soon as it hits the store.  

Follow your heart...
If you buy what you love, and what you know will suit you, then whether it's a coat in the height of summer or swimsuit in the depths of winter, it will be the perfect purchase whatever the weather.

Look out for future posts in this series...
