I hear quite a few people say to me – I’ll do this colour and style analysis when I’ve lost weight.

I say, don’t delay because when you wear colours that suit you, you can make yourself look younger and slimmer!  So many of my clients will agree with this.

The longer you wait to do this, the less time you have to make the most of the information, including saving money and time, and you may be delaying getting compliments.

When you are carrying a few more pounds than you would like, you can mask your true personality because you are not able (perhaps through a lack of confidence) to be yourself.  Most people in this country do not like to stand out from the crowd, and wearing colours (rather than black, white or grey) can make it feel like you are standing out.

And, if you are carrying a few extra pounds, you can feel like you do not want to wear the correct style clothes for your body shape because you do not want to draw attention to yourself.  So, in this country we will wear unshapely, often drab, clothes, thinking it will hide our size.  This may not be the most flattering look.  Meeting an image consultant in confidence, will help you find a suitable look for the body you have now, and if you shed the pounds, the new shape you have.  Dressing well for your body shape is like creating an illusion.  People who know how to do this can actually make it appear as if they are thinner than they really are, and can still get compliments, even if they do not feel as if they deserve them.

So, what are you waiting for – book in now to get the illusion you desire, and get on with life.  When you feel happier about your look, you will enjoy life more.
