Scarfs

While the weather is still sunny accessorize with a scarf that is not so thick and heavy, so that it does not leave you sweating but still keeps you warm on cooler days.

Scarfs are a perfect way to jazz up a drab outfit as it adds a pop of colour to your outfit.

Hats

A hat makes for a great accessory no matter the season but are more prominent during autumn. While the weather is still hot and sunny you can wear it to protect your hair from sun damage or to hide a bad hair day.

Whether you add these pieces bit by bit because you are not ready to let go off the summer. Think of it as layering and as the weather slowly changes you add one piece at a time and then another layer and before you know it, you will be fully dressed for autumn.

WEARING PINK

Pink, reminds me of being a little girl and as an adult the last thing you want is to look like a little princess when you are wearing it. Here are a few hints and tips on how to wear pink like a woman and not like a little girl.

You just love pink but as a strong career women you do not want to seem to girly. Wearing pink in an office setting, opt for a fitted shift dress or a power suit in the shade that complements your colouring. Stay clear of girlish fabrics like lace, chiffon instead go for silk, cotton or linen.

wearing pink 1

If you are going for a brighter pink shades, can be a bit much in one outfit. So rather go for a splash especially if you are wearing muted colours, that hint of pink will liven it up.

wearing pink 2

Mixing pink printed pieces are great way to spice up the colour. Add elements like contrasting accessories to break the colour.

Contrasting textures are a great way, to be less pink Barbie, so pair a cute pink dress with a leather biker jacket for a more edgy look.

Keep your look stylish by colour blocking your pinks with neutral colours and complementing bold colours.

One Style 4 looks

STYLE

The Top Knot

From super slicked back, to loose and dishevelled, the top knot is still a favourite for work, party or just hanging out.

Placement is key when creating a top knot, it should sit flat on the top of your head and not too far back on your head and the hair in the back must be completely smooth.

Once your hair is up in a ponytail backcomb the ponytail for fluffiness and then twist the hair around your elastic band and secure with hair pins. Use hairspray to hold it all in place.

Look Taller, short girls, wearing your hair in a top knot gives the impression that you are taller as it creates a vertical line and adds inches to your size.
