New Idea sat down with homegrown designer Leona Edmiston to talk styling tips, best accessories and dressing for your body shape.
What is the key accessory women should look out for?
Accessories are so important because they can change a look and adapt your outfit, I love scarves and jewelry, jewelry for me can transform an outfit from the everyday to the extraordinary. Statement jewelry always makes you feel fabulous!
One of the hardest things to do is to find the right shape of clothing for your body shape, what advice could you give women when looking for this?
We are all such different body shapes, not everyone can wear everything, you have to stick to what looks flattering on you.
Try on different shapes in a store so that you can see yourself in the outfits and someone can be there to assist you. Work out what you feel comfortable and confident in. If you look great and you have chosen the right shape you will soon get compliments and you will know when you have got it right.
Are there any other fashion tips that you would like to share with our readers?
of coarse! I always say, a solid colour will define and outline and a print will blur the silhouette. A print is a lot more flattering and forgiving. Your eye isn’t drawn to a strict shape it moves with the print. For women worried about there shape this is a great tip to live by.
