I need a style over­haul


Hav­ing just turned 50, I feel like I’m hav­ing a midlife cri­sis. I’m very happy with my husband and my job, and my kids are do­ing well – but I just feel like a frump who’s lost her way when it comes to what to wear, and it’s just

not me. I was al­ways a ‘ded­i­cated fol­lower of fash­ion’ but, now, I don’t trust my own judge­ment and I’m para­noid that, if I try a new look, I’ll look like mut­ton dressed as lamb! Bar giv­ing Gok Wan a call, I don’t know what to do.

Maybe it’s time to give your­self a lit­tle treat, with a trip to London or an­other big city. Depart­ment stores such as House Of Fraser and Deben­hams of­fer fash­ion ad­vis­ers, or per­sonal shop­pers, for free. Af­ter a dis­cus­sion, they gather to­gether a se­lec­tion of clothes they think might suit you in a pri­vate dress­ing room, and give great ad­vice. It might be a good start­ing point.
