Styling Tips | The Art of Sizing up or Down

Styling Tips - Lace Trim Cami

There’s an art to buys clothes that fit you in a way that flatters you. Now I’m not talking about fitting you in a way that shows off your figure or compliments your waist. More in a way that shows off your style and enhances your best bits. As a stylist, I never went for the size that it said on the tin, I love to play around with proportion finding the size that looked best on me, be it a 6 or a 16, if I want to size up or down to change the style to my own taste, that’s my prerogative.

Styling Tips | The Art of Sizing Up or Down

So back to the styling tips. I shan’t give too much away as it’s all in the video and I find it much easier to explain things by talking than to write but this video was suggested by one of you lovely lot and for that reason, I am super excited to share! She asked me to explain which items I always size up or down in and talk about the different ways in which I prefer to wear certain things. I never really saw this as something that any one would be interested to know but I guess the fact that I only really wear Mens t-shirts might surprise you?!

Remember to let me know if you have any video ideas, any styling tips or tags you want me to do and I am more than happy to oblige!

    I’m so glad I found your blog via these awards! I definitely love sizing up – sometimes the number on the label is just irrelevant.

    I love this post, we should concentrate less on what the number on the label says and more on how great that item of clothing makes us feel regardless. I adore buying jumpers to be oversized as it just makes them so cosy!

    I tend to buy things no matter what the size. If I like something but they only have a 16 and I’m an 8 I will buy it anyway and kind of make it work
