This weeks photo sums up so many questions about Billie's style in comparison to Nina's.
Billie's clothing suits her strong and bold personality and Nina with her soft layers suits her hesitant somewhat relaxed nature. Both wearing what makes them happy and both are true to their own 'Personal Styles'. Billie's style is Classic, Creative and Feminine, while Nina style is Creative, Feminine and Boho.
One of my number one rules is - don't follow the rule book! What a contradiction that is your thinking - well it's something I learnt very quickly, that if we followed all the rules to suit our body's features you'd end up back at square one - nothing to wear!
In this photo Nina has balanced her broad shoulders with a long straight printed skirt. A waist belt has also helped balance her proportions. Billie loves her classic black staples - "Who doesn't!" She has created interest by wearing her bright orange lace top to break up the black. This certainly get's your attention. Her skirt length creates harmony by balancing her proportions.
Think about what's in your wardrobe, do you shop for the same styles? Or go to the same shops? Think about what looks great on you - your favourite garments. Ask yourself why they work on you? What do you love about them?
I love prints, often paired back with a block colour, usually white, navy or black. Add some texture and a splash of colour - nothing too bright for me! Add into the mix garments that even my proportions and there you have it - my 'Personal Style' is 'Feminine and Creative'.
Create harmony within your look by adding layers of accessories - a scarf, belt or feature necklace. This is always a great way to add that extra 'Personal Style' touch.
