You don’t really need to have a specific style philosophy in order to look stunning; the best tip you’ll get from anyone who understands the female body, style and ultimately fashion is that you should wear whatever works for YOU and you only.
Everyone’s got a best feature – whether it’s their face, legs, buttocks, or shoulders, there is always something that stands out - and they should accentuate those features by choosing the right clothes and accessories. Play around with garnishes, styles, embellishments, edgy details and other fun additions and see where the experimenting takes you. Although, don’t do it like you’ve preened to within an inch of your life; there's nothing more repulsive than looking as if you’re trying too hard. Therefore, learning to manage your clothes and the range of accessories available to you is a key to always looking intriguing, exciting and fresh.
The talent behind accessorizing
If you don’t have it (the talent, we mean), you’ll learn it; the idea is to focus on a few timeless accessorizing tips that will work to your advantage every single time.
Follow the morphology of your body
Size does matter but not in the way you think. Depending on your body size, you should look for accessories that work with your frame and emphasize your best features. Opting for accessories that are either too big or too small will just make things awkward. Petite girls are always advised to go with accessories that are smaller in size (clutches instead of baggy bags, bud earrings instead of statement hanging earrings, thin necklaces instead of chains, etc.) as there is no visual disproportion blocking the view. The same applies to girls that are fuller; if your frame is thick, go for accessories that compliment your body.
Embrace The Chameleon
There’s nothing wrong about continually switching between styles and adjusting them to your mood, absolutely not! After all, fashion is all about a personal sentiment, and it is a way of expressing your strongest emotions through the pieces you wear. With that in mind, if your temperament dictates more than one style – embrace what you feel! Although, do not become too hectic because you want to avoid the “cheap” label.
So, whenever you feel like pulling off a Hollywood 1950s diva style, wear accessories that speak class: silk, pears, diamond-stud earrings, clutches... For an outfit that oozes glam, rely on bib necklaces, chandelier earrings, large rings and oversized sunglasses... beautiful! On the days when you are feeling playful, trust headbands, hobo bags, chunky jewelry, fringe details, lace, ballet flats or gladiators and maxi dresses to ace your game. When the edge hits you (again), there’s nothing like a choker necklace, thick cuff bracelet, studded handbag and black leather booties to make things perfect! Speaking of edgy, what most of the “style shifter” girls complain about are their tattoos that tend to get in the way of their chameleon moments (or work!). However, with professionals offering quality and safe tattoo removal in Sydney, there’s nothing holding them back, really. As for workday accessories - choose a classic watch, delicate necklaces, kitten heels and shoulder bags.
Match your accessories with the context
You probably have your favorite accessories sitting in the cabinet, just waiting to be worn (we all do) but not all accessories (no matter how much we love them) fit every occasion. While a myriad of bracelets hanging on the wrist and a statement, hand-made floral necklace would work for an engagement party, baby shower or a wedding even, such a combination won’t work for a business lunch (no matter how casual), the first time you meet your partner’s parents, a job interview or a funeral (you get the gist). It’s essential that you match your accessories to the context of your occasion because otherwise, you’ll just look plain odd. Also, when you are trying to emphasize the outfit – wear understated accessories. If, however, you are looking to upgrade your dull outfit and give it a twist – chose bold accessories that will catch the eye.
Good luck accessorizing, girls!

It was an Allstar turnout of award winning emerging designers at the Catwalk Edit event over at The Old Chelsea Town Hall on 19th February 2015 with over 60 designers exhibiting their collection and showcasing them on the catwalk.
We took the timeout to start an early coverage of London Fashion Week A/W29015. We were very much spoilt for choice, as there were so much to look at in regards of women's wear, accessories and the current design trends in separate-able wear. This is where an outfit has multiple looks by removing such items as the sleeves or a part of the neckline to give the outfit a alternative look.
DePloy demi-couture of Marylebone showed a great example of separate-able wear on the catwalk.
The opening day of London Fashion Week A/W2015 was very much a surprise for us at iDeLick Media as we were put into a position of become a former of Fashion International Relationships. We just finished a video interview with a designer with many features and articles in Vogue which I recognised as the brand Vitussi.
Vitussi, who is the designer Vito along with Millinery/Hat Designer, Sinead Madden of from were very receptive to a 'Ah Ah' moment when they recognised there was a familiarity in their designs and I had the pleasure of capturing the moment when both of their designs were brought together for a little impromptu photoshoot with Sinead as the model.
