The other day we got the absolute pleasure to meet and interview Stylist and all round style queen Lydia. Having spread herself over personal styling and shopping all the way through to interior styling, Lydia knows a thing or two about style and styling for you. She believes personal styling is all about understanding the client. This includes their personality, what they like and also what suits their body type. It is”all about speaking”, getting their particular style to speak who they are and show their personality. Lydia also shared with us some of her wisdom and style tips, which will help get those creative juices flowing and get you looking your stylish best!
For all the women out there, we asked Lydia to share her best kept secrets in shopping for your body type. Seed is a modern women’s clothing option stocking a loose fitting style Its great for long body shapes and for adding shape to your figure. Veronika Maine is great for the shapely women with a more tailored and fitted style to help show off those curves. Lydia also expressed with us the importance of accessories to MAKE an outfit. Her choice of accessories on a budget include Lovisa and Collette. Both are great to pick up some style steals to add colour and personality to your outfit. If your looking for something a bit more expensive that is going to last the test of time, go and check out Molten. This Brisbane based jewelry and accessories store has sterling silver jewelry and leather bags to die for.
For the men, shops like Roger Davis and Scotch and Soda are Lydia’s best kept secrets. Although maybe slightly pricey, the items from Scotch and Soda exude personality through their loud colors and patterns. On the other-hand, Roger David is great to find the casual Sunday outfit or something more formal to dress it up at night. Lydia also expressed the importance of belts, bags, shoes and watches. These are the accessories which make your outfits go from an 8 to a styling 10!
For the kids, Bonds and Bardot Junior were very high on Lydia’s personal favorite’s list. They both have incredibly diverse ranges of comfy, cute and lasting clothing for your little one. If your looking for something a little more in budget Cotton On Kids and Target have great ranges of everyday kids wear that will get them through their messy day.
