Back to school — the essential style guide for teachers

Thu, Aug 20, 2009

Build your work wardrobe with comfortable and practical pieces which will ensure you always look good. Here are the must have pieces to have in your autumn/winter work wardrobe.

Start with a blouse or long sleeved top that suit your complexion. For instance, if your complexion is clear (ie, dark hair and blue eyes) get shirts in white, green, or blue shades. If your complexion is warm (red hair, fair skin, and green eyes) get a shirt in cream, purple, oranges tones. The shirt is great for layering with waistcoat, cardigans, dresses, and tops, etc, or to wear it on its own with a necklace.

Thu, Aug 13, 2009

You will get more wear out of them and save money in the long run.

Top tips for racing in style

Thu, Jul 23, 2009

The key to racing style is to love what you are wearing, so that you will feel and look comfortable and carry yourself with confidence.

The outfit should suit your colour, your shape, and the environment. Go with what works best for you. A dress should be neither too short nor calf-length. Remember that by the time you have accessorised the outfit, applied make-up, and styled you hair, you might have done too much.
