The power of a dress

Let it not go unsaid that the power of a woman in a perfect dress is not the dissimilar to the power of a man wearing a well cut suit.  Think about it: a suit enhances masculinity as it says control and structure which are traits associated with masculinity; whereas with women a perfectly cut dress enhances traits associated with femininity such as creativity, softness, even quirkiness.  The key to making this work is finding the perfect dress for YOU. 

When people think of what a good stylist does, the most common thought would be that stylists put people in the right pieces and colours for their body shape and skin tone.  But what we really do, is put them in pieces that not only tick those boxes but also match their personality with the clothes, making them shine from the inside out. 

So the perfect dress that enhances each woman’s femininity needs to tick the following boxes:

  • It’s the right shade for skin, hair and eye colour
  • It’s the right cut that it shows off each individual’s strengths
  • It’s a true representation of that person’s unique personality e.g. creative, whimsical, logical etc
  • When the individual sees themselves in the dress, they don’t want to take it off

All these things can be super tricky, but by using a smart stylist it’s very easy to find that piece (or pieces!) that tick all of those boxes and yes, it’s an amazing feeling when you find that dress!
