Paula Style - - Beauty -

SEVEN OF THE SEA­SON’S win­ter fash­ion high­lights can all be seen in this photo of Kylie. New, sharp short mod­ern hair, the un­der­stated eye, strong lip colour, the white shirt, the pussy- cat bow, ropes of pearls and the hound­stooth jacket. This shows there is a gen­tle sense of retro peek­ing through for wardrobes but with a dis­tinctly mod­ern edge. This ap­proach also ap­plies to home­wares so we have bal­anced our book with a smat­ter­ing of beau­ti­ful ex­am­ples from cush­ions to couches. Women who love clothes also share a healthy ap­pre­ci­a­tion for chang­ing their home from time to time: be it a new se­lec­tion of cush­ions and can­dles to an up­date of room colour or re­con­fig­u­ra­tion of chairs and so­fas. What counts though, in the pur­suit of en­sur­ing a bal­ance to your styling, is the abil­ity to take clas­sic pieces then add a quirky un­ex­pected item to pre­vent pre­dictabil­ity. Ex­am­ple: In fash­ion styling our hound­stooth coat has moved for­ward from the 90s, when a skirt or dress would have been the pre­ferred co-or­di­nat­ing op­tion and is re­placed to­day with the nar­row pants and high heels or boots.

Fem­i­nine touches fin­ish the look – Clas­sic Blazer with Satin Trim, Short Mi­cro­jer­sey Shirt and Basque Leg­ging in Roma. An­ton Side Ta­ble by Serax from Daw­son & Co.
