the Fash Pack

A few sim­ple tweaks to an out­fit can el­e­vate your look from drab to fab!

No. 1 Magazine - - CONTENTS -

1. Roll ‘EM up

Give an un­der­stated blazer a fash­ion for­ward new look sim­ply by fold­ing up your cuffs. If the cuffs are too thick to fold neatly, sim­ply use a hair-band just be­low the el­bow to push up the sleeves in­stead. Et voilà you now have a look favoured by the fash­ion ed­i­tors.

2. Shrug Your shoul­ders

Off the shoul­der, cold shoul­der... Shoul­ders have been big news for some time in the fash­ion in­dus­try – but for the fash­ion ex­perts it’s all about the shoul­der shrug. Bal­ance your coat on your shoul­ders with­out us­ing your sleeves to nail fash­ion­ista chic.

3. Rock day­time sparkle

The key to wear­ing se­quins be­fore cock­tail hour is to pair with ca­sual pieces in warm tex­tures.

4. the Half tuck

Stop an over­sized jumper or shirt from swamp­ing your frame and mak­ing you look far larger than you ac­tu­ally are, by tuck­ing a small sec­tion into the front of your waist­band. It high­lights the waist and makes a ca­sual out­fit look more stylish.

5. Belt up

There are so many ways to wear a scarf, but which will garner you the most style points? We love this look de­buted on the Burberry cat­walks of au­tumn/win­ter’14.

7. Go nude

Earthy tones such as beige, nudes and camel are su­per ex­pen­sive look­ing – es­pe­cially when worn head to toe. The key to nail­ing the look is to stick to a sim­i­lar tone.

6. Steal the spot­light

The sim­plest way to add a bit of in­ter­est to an out­fit is to har­ness the power of the ac­ces­sory. From ear­rings to neck­laces and brooches – lay­er­ing up state­ment pieces will add in­ter­est to a sim­ple out­fit.

8. Bold Brights

When it’s dark and gloomy out­side it can be all to easy to find your­self stuck in a palette of black and grey. But bold bright colours needn’t be con­fined to sum­mer, a colour pop coat sparks a new lease of life into an other­wise sim­ple look, or for ex­tra style points clash your brights like the im­age above.

9. LUXE leather

Leather can look ex­pen­sive and luxe if worn cor­rectly. Avoid skin tight pieces and pair with a wardrobe sta­ple such as a white shirt or polo-neck.

10. easy style

Who can ig­nore the al­lure of the most clas­sic and stylish colour combo? If you’re hav­ing an in­de­ci­sion day when it comes to your wardrobe, opt for clas­sic mono­chrome. Spend a lit­tle ex­tra on key pieces as black and white will never go out of style.

11. fur with flo­rals

Look­ing to eke out your cosy fur coat a lit­tle longer? They go bril­liantly with ditzy flo­ral out­fits like the one pic­tured and make for a great tran­si­tional piece (es­pe­cially in Scot­land).

12. In­vest in a bum­bag

It made a ques­tion­able come­back but the bum­bag is not go­ing any­where. What­ever your opin­ion is, it’s sur­pris­ingly prac­ti­cal, we are big fans in the No.1 of­fice. Wear on your hips or across the body.

13. Cinch in

An­other trick used reg­u­larly by those in the know is to belt an item that wasn’t ac­tu­ally in­tended as such. Pop­ping a chunky belt over your out­er­wear gives you a waspish waist.

14. Laid back Suit

Up­date of­fice at­tire by pair­ing a busi­ness suit with train­ers to nail smart ca­sual.
