3 x Green blazers

3 x Green blazers

Last week, by coincidence whilst out on personal shopping trips with 2 separate clients, each of them bought a dark green blazer.  It wasn't something I was specifically looking for and in fact it was the shop staff that suggested them in the first place, but both myself and the client were very taken with them.

If you've already got your basic navy and grey blazers in your wardrobe and are looking for something different without being too "out there" then I'd suggest you try out a dark green.

I love something that's versatile and even though it doesn't initially seem it, I think this colour is surprisingly adaptable. Unfortunately I can't find either of the ones I bought with my clients to show you online but I had a look around for some others and these are the ones I came up with.

Hi Tech Winter Snowboarding Jackets

I love it when my clients give me a challenge! A recent one was to assist with snowboarding gear and not being a winter sports fanatic, I had to do my research first. I thought I'd share with you some of the things I learnt along the way in case you too are a novice in the winter sports gear arena.

Firstly, here's a checklist of things to look for in a snowboarding jacket:

Winter accessories & how to wear them

Winter accessories & how to wear them

Winter accessories can really help to show your personal style and also to help your outfit look finished off and put together. It's the small details that often make the difference....a great pair of socks peaking out from under your jeans, a beautiful scarf, a hat to add some colour to your outfit. Here are my top picks of winter accessories and how to wear them.

5 of the best - Winter Coats

5 of the best - Winter Coats

Now the nights are drawing in and the Christmas jingles will soon be playing in every store, clients have been updating their wardrobes with new coats on the recent personal shopping trips I've done.

Of course they all had varying briefs, so here I've put together a selection of the best coats I found to fit their critieria. I've concentrated on ones that are suitable to wear to work and fit over a suit jacket, though most of these will look great as part of a casual outfit too.

Superb Sweaters

Superb Sweaters

Brrrr.....there's a definite nip in the air.......time to kit yourself out with some sweaters methinks.

So, what will you choose this time? The same plain navy, black or grey that you always go for? Whilst I agree they're very useful basics to have, there are plenty of other options out there. So why not branch out this Autumn and experiment a little and choose something with a different neckline, texture or in a different colour to switch things up a bit?
