OK so I must put a heavy disclaimer on the front on this blog, I have a Latino partner so some of the things that certainly HE thinks make me look more attractive put us back into the dark ages – you know, like stockings, very high heels, a super tight dress and lashings of lipstick!!! I do on the occasion oblige! Got to keep things nice and spicy ladies as you can see from the pic of my fabfit bum above!
We all want to look a bit more glamorous from time to time and channel our inner goddess so I’ve got a few tricks up my sleeve to share with you. Use, one, two or more of these styling tips depending on the level of SASS you want to bring to your day.
Scratch that! Forget about today! Today is quite literally a white out!
It's TIPPING down with snow and yours truly is working from home, dressed in athleisure (although in my defense I did brave it out of the house on foot this morning for my regular Pilates class so lycra is allowed) combined with my rather fetching and oh so cosy slipper socks, a giant fluffy cardicoat as I like to call it (bigger than a cardigan, not as practical as a coat) and my hot water bottle. The house is lovely and toastie upstairs but my little blogging zone has an artic gale whistling right through it!
Anyhow’s. Back to the glamour! Here are a few tried and tested style tips that will have you feeling all va va voom and combatting todays doom and gloom.
Was there ever anything more instantly glamorous than a red lip? Gwen Stefani has perfected it as her signature look and whether she is dressed down in jeans and a tee or on the red carpet she always looks HOT! Keep it simple and elegant with the rest of your make-up and you too can channel that Hollywood style icon look.
Throw on a piece of sharply tailored and stylish clothing, like a good old fashioned blazer to look and feel like you mean business. Its a favourite look of mine. I do love a structured suit or a jeans and blazer combo.
Oh yeah baby - if you got it, flaunt it! Even if you don’t, what the hell, give it a go. You don’t need to go all out Jessica Rabbit or Kim K, but find a key piece that accentuates your best assets and you will instantly raise your sass appeal. You can still manage to look sexy and sophisticated if you keep it to a pared down more polished, neutral look.
Accessorise to Mesmerise
Getting your glam on is easy. Just throw on an amazing piece of statement jewellery, a fabulous necklace or a pair of oversized earrings. It can be a real head turning look and one that is very easy to carry off in every day life.
Confidence ladies, confidence
Own your body and learn to love the lens. Work your angles! That’s what I do. In real life I sometimes resemble a dumpy little donut but this Cat knows how to strike a pose and is always trying to find her light! I’m sure you’ve already noticed the jauntily placed hand on the hip and leg strutting slightly forwards on an angle. Ain’t no happy accident! I've been perfecting it for years!
Perhaps not for everyday but adding a bit of sparkle into your ensemble will make you instantly look more glam and eye catching. Who doesn't love some sequins?
There is no denying that heels make women look and feel more glamorous and that men think so too! In fact, there are studies that directly coreelate the height of the heel to the increase in a women’s attractiveness – to a man that is! Stripper style platforms anyone? I'm sure I'm not the only one who has heels that have never been outside! SAy
For guaranteed glamour look further than the little black dress. I don’t really need to say much more. We all have at least half a dozen in our wardrobe right? Here's me teaming a blazer, with an LBD, killer heels and a red lip. Game. Set. Match.
I know that strictly speaking these are an accessory but they deserve a mention all to themselves. Giving you instant specs appeal! They just automatically make an outfit look more put together and give you a little bit of an extra air of mystery and intrigue. No-one need know that behind the glasses lies 50 shades of exceedingly over tired!
So there you have it. A few ways to amp up your own attractiveness. Style them your way, any day.
Like I said earlier, today is a mufty, stay at home cos it’s tipping it down with snow day. Regardless, I am wearing a few sequins on my top, a red lip and always my go to glamour accessory du jour – my fabulous Prada bejeweled glasses. So even though its cold outside, I’m still glamorous indoors!
Much love and fabulousness,
