Fashion Tips from Fashion Icon – Iris Apfel

Here are three of my favourite fashion tips from Iris Apfel:

Dress to please yourself

This is a great tip. Many times we are carried away with the styles in vogue, that we forget to dress for ourselves and not for social media or the public. It is nice to know what styles are trending just incase you like them, but the first thing to have in mind when playing dress up is to dress to please yourself. That way you will step out feeling confident and comfortable.

Explore fashion

This is another fab tip. To create your own signature look, you need to explore what is out there. I love exploring fashion by trying new styles and pieces to see how they fit into my personal style. As a fashion blogger, it also allows me to try out new trends. Exploring fashion is a great way to discover likes and dislikes.

Go for signature pieces

Iris Apfel is known as the Queen of Accessories, and you just need to Google her to find out why. This fashion icon wears a lot of accessories and she makes them work. I would love to see her accessories collection. I bet she has loads.

When it comes to investing in my wardrobe, I spend a little more on signature pieces that would send the test of time. I like to spend a little on accessories, especially hand bags. Going for signature pieces allow you create the perfect capsule wardrobe.

Here is me wishing Iris Apfel a fantastic birthday for tomorrow. 100 years on this planet is something and she looks like simply gorgeous. Happy birthday to the Queen of Accessories.

 

 

Style Icon: Enya

I listen to songs by Enya everyday on my Spotify. I love her music so much that I have an entire playlist dedicated to Enya! At the time of writing, the playlist has 55 songs, and I am forever discovering great tracks by her, so I am certain the playlist will grow even more before the end of the year. Enya’s music is just on of the things I like about this talented Irish singer-songwriter and musician. Another thing I really love about Enya is her simple sense of fashion. Her personal style is very chic and so feminine. She does wear a lot of colour. I have noticed she tends to stick to monochrome, and it suits her perfectly.

Style Icon: Enya

Enya has the figure to slay most looks and she always does on the red carpet. I love this stunning white dress she is rocking above. This was her look at the Grammys in 2017. I can’t fault the look in anywhere. From her hair down to the accessories, she stayed all the way.

It is incredibly hard to find any information about Enya online, especially when it is outside of her music. This style icon is incredibly private, even though she has been active in the music industry for over 40 years. It would have been nice to read some of her recent interviews and find out more about the woman behind the amazing music, but there are no traces of her granting an interview online. So I guess Enya will remain a mystery to us. Which I am sure is what she wants, and I can’t blame. The press usually do more harm than good. Let the music speak for itself.

What do you of Enya as a style icon? Are you a fan of her music? My favourite is The Forge of the Angels. You can read about last month’s style icon: Dr Wendy Osefo here.

Boring Or Bad Tattoos 

Tattoos have become incredibly popular as of late and more people than ever are choosing to permanently style their bodies with awesome artwork. One thing to be aware of is that you can make a bad decision with your choice of tattoo. For instance, a lot of men are being criticized for opting for tribal tattoos which don’t mean anything to them and are not part of their culture but they think look cool. Other people just get bad tattoos because they choose the wrong artist. You need to make sure that the tattoo artist you choose has the right tattoo supplies to provide fantastic final results for you. 

Clothes That Don’t Match Your Body Shape 

Next, you need to think about your clothing choices. It’s important to choose clothes that match your individual body shape. If you don’t do this, then you can end up in a situation where your style looks cheap and hides the best part of your body. For instance, a fitted suit is always going to look better compared to one that hangs off the shoulders. You might also want to consider opting for clothing that accentuates features that you are proud of. For instance, if you feel more confident with your lower half, then it makes sense to choose items of clothing that make an impression here. An example would be a killer faux leather skirt or wet look skirt that catches the light. 

Large Squares 

It’s important to note that patterns can have an impact on the perception that people have of your body. The patterns and styles that you choose can make you look larger or smaller. If you are self-conscious about your weight, then you need to make sure that you avoid large squares. These are always going to make you look frumpy and larger in general. Instead, you should think about smaller patterns on your clothing. 

The Wrong Jeans 

Finally, you need to make sure that you are not picking the wrong pair of jeans for you. Jeans are always going to be a popular item of clothing. They can accentuate your curves and show off your figure in all the right ways. However, you do need to think about key details such as the right cut. You should also consider going for a size that is one smaller than is comfortable when choosing jeans in-store. If you don’t do this, then the jeans are going to stretch and this will completely ruin your look. 

We hope this helps you understand some of the key mistakes that you can make with your fashion choices and that you should try and avoid them as much as possible. If you take the right steps here, you can guarantee that you always look incredible.
