Hair accessories are a big trend this coming season
STYLE S.O.S. (The Philippine Star) - July 28, 2015 - 10:00am

DEAR RISSA

I sometimes get bored with my hair. How can I  make it more interesting without cutting or coloring it?

Hair accessories are big this coming season. Few ever really think about it, but they can make a difference to your look. Headbands, leather hair accessories, jewelled clips and barrettes, and floral hair clips are just some of the upcoming fall/winter 2015-2015 hair trends. Try the brand Scünci. Unlike other hair accessory brands which feel plastic-y and child-like, Scünci is more fashionable and grown-up. They have a lot of beautiful jewelled clips and hair accessories that instantly dress up your look. Apart from being a big trend this coming season, hair accessories have become fashion accessories, too!

Simplify your wardrobe

DEAR LUCY,

How do I make sure my clothes fit well? I once read an article about you wherein you were quoted as saying all the clothes in one’s closet should fit well. That makes sense to me, but how do I begin going about that?                             

AMY

Yes, it simplifies life when your closet is filled only with items that fit you well. That said, be very picky about what goes in. When you buy something that needs to be shortened or lengthened, tightened, tailored, taken in a bit here and there, do that at the onset. It is worth the extra effort. You need not have too many things, but make sure the ones you have are of good quality and that they flatter you. Know your assets, and build a wardrobe that showcases these. Invest in the right underwear, it is very important that your bra fits well, that you have seamless underwear, also shapewear/corset at the ready when needed. Have a set of pants/trousers in lengths that work with flats and another set that can only be worn with heels. The right length is very important. The basic rule is to get rid of anything that does not fit well or, at the very least, if you really want to keep it, have the necessary alterations done. Have a few clothes that gracefully fall still when your weight fluctuates (for instance, after a trip when you have indulged too much).

A closet filled only with clothing that flatters you is assurance enough that whatever you pull out will make you look good.
