How to Style White and NOT look big? (Part 1 - White Series)

Tuesday, April 02, 2024 Simone - Your Style Architect 0 Comments

Hey guys,

Finding some traction in my blog posts of late and thought I'd share these tips on how to style ( if you can call this a color) " White" and not look big? In my personal styling sessions, I often get thrown this question as many are of the mindset that styling black creates an illusion of being thinner - so styling white should be the opposite. Hence many of you do refrain from wearing full WHITE outfits.

Well, here's some tips you can avoid to trend a full White on White outfit and still look fabulous.

1) Personally, the style of the outfit/ silhouette is the first thing that comes to mind. A thicker fabric and one that is flowing rather than tight, definitely helps to create some texture and movement in the look and therefore take the focus away from key focal points that you do not wish to accentuate.

2) I believe in drawing the attention more towards your face, so showing a little more skin on the upper half of the body works, bring the focus to your face using accessories and great makeup.

3) Underwear is also key here! Many also have the misconception to wear white underwear with white outfits but to the contrary if the fabric is thin enough, it does show the silhouette a lot more than if one used nude toned underwear. 

4) A full white on white look actually works better to "slim" the look rather than working with pops of colour.

5) Wear items that are loose - if a full white outfit is tight fitting - every curve is accented and highlighted. Therefore, wearing items that fit looser ( again to Point 1) creates movement and texture and less emphasis on the body shape/ size.

Do look out for my posts on Part 2 & 3 of my White Series inspirations.

Wardrobe Edit - Watch The Sessions NOW!

Friday, March 22, 2024 Simone - Your Style Architect 0 Comments

 Hi everyone and I know you must be wondering where I have been this last one year? 

For those of you who have been following me on Instagram - I have been active with my outfit posts and styling tips just a little slower in posts given I had recently gone back to full time corporate work. Instagram is the main platform that I showcase my styling tips and tricks and #ootd. So please follow me there for more up to date looks ( @yourstylearchitect)

Nonetheless my passion for fashion still holds strong and figured it's about time I refreshed and updated my blog as well.

So for today, let me just share with you some fun times I recently had with a client when I headed over to her place for a Wardrobe Edit. She had never done one before so it took a bit of coaxing to get her to understand why one needs to do such an exercise now and again - cos it does open up one's eyes to note how we have been "frivolously" spending our money with no thought process and eventually ending up with the same styles / color over and over again. That is why many of us open up our wardrobes and still go on about " I don't have anything to wear" when one has a wardrobe FULL of clothes!

Enjoy and do leave me a comment on what strike you the most from the videos and what take away tip was most useful for you.
