EIGHTIES SHOULDER PADS ARE GOING TO MAKE YOU FEEL FABULOUS BUT YOU DON'T NEED TO GO TO THAT EXTREME IF THAT STYLE REALLY ISN'T YOU. JUST MAXIMISE WHAT FEELS BEST ON YOU, ACCORDING TO YOUR OWN PERSONAL STYLE.  WHETHER THAT BE A FIERCER PAIR OF BOLD BLACK SUNGLASSES, A LONGER VINYL TEXTURISED SKIRT  OR A SUPER HEIGHTEN PAIR OF GOLDEN HEELS. ENHANCE WHAT SUITS YOU BEST.

Dressing with A.T.T.I.T.U.D.E aka POWER DRESSING is a fierce style which is vastly revamping my entire look. Due to our current testing political nerve I've a mad desire to permanently walk with a Pro-Woman sign visibly slapped on to my face! (Did anyone else totally miss the world's National Womans March?! 

I've always been an extroverted and opinionated character, especially growing up. And I distinctly remember being told at school by my peers to ‘Lose the Attitude’ (being the only girl of ethnicity the majority of the time, probably labelled the stigma towards me during the nineties). Don’t get me wrong I absolutely loved my secondary school life, BUT I don't actually think I had 'Attitude'......Exceptionally loud yes, but more along the lines of the silly-all-dancing-singing-joker character of the group. So even back then, and now, I've never been one to shy away from expressing myself. (cue the leather hot pants)

How would you describe your style? I would describe mine as cute, kooky and vintage obsessed….But the one thing which was visibly missing from the wardrobe was....THE DRESSING WITH ATTITUDE TITLESo 2017 has to be the year that we finally feel super proud of our beautiful female bodies aka SHAKING WHAT OUR MOMMA'S GAVE US! Think styling ultra vintage /inspo with stems of empowered attitude..........
TAILOR YOUR STRIKING NEW STYLE. STICK TO RUNWAY INSPIRED AFFORDABLE BRANDS, IF YOUR NOT GOING VINTAGE FOR THAT SUPER SHARP EDGE, FLATTERING LOOK. FOR EXAMPLE - A GORGEOUS WELL CUT SUIT WILL DO EXACTLY THE TRICK.
WHEN WE THINK OF 'DRESSING WITH ATTITUDE' OR 'POWER DRESSING' WE IMMEDIATELY THINK OF THE OVER-DRESSED OR THE SMART OFFICE LOOK. (STEMMING FROM THE 80'S REFERENCE) BUT I REALLY DON'T THINK THAT NEEDS TO BE THE CASE IN 2017. YOU CAN BE DRESSED WITH VIBES OF POWER OR WITH A CERTAIN SENSE OF AUTHORITY IN A PAIR OF JEANS. IT'S THE WAY YOU WEAR THEM JEANS AND WHAT COLOURS AND DETAILS YOU PAIR WITH THEM JEANS, TO MAKE THE LOOK APPEAR EFFORTLESSLY STRIKING AND FULL OF ATTITUDE.

BOLD STRONG COLOURS. WE ARE INSTINCTIVELY DRAWN TO CERTAIN COLOURS AND RESPOND TO THEM WITH FEELING. THE RIGHT COLOURS WILL MAKE YOUR EYES SPARKLE AND YOUR SKIN GLOW. TRY A COLOUR TEST IN FRONT OF THE MIRROR TO DETER WHICH SHADE WORKS BEST FOR YOU. I PERSONALLY LOVE BLOCKS OF YELLOW, ORANGE AND PALE BLUE AGAINST MY SKIN TONE. YOU CAN ALSO OPT FOR THE MORE EFFECTIVE YET SUBTLE POP OF COLOUR WITHIN YOUR
LOOK.
DRESS FOR SUCCESS. THE WOMAN WEARS THE DRESS RATHER THAN THE DRESS WEARING YOU THIS YEAR ROUND.  LET YOUR INNER SELF ASSURED CONFIDENCE SHINE THROUGH.
