So sit down and grab a mirror: it’s time to see whether you are a warm blonde or a cool blonde.

Cool Blonde Hair

Cool blonde hair is characterized by ‘cool’ undertones, such as gray or blue. Examples of cool blonde hair tones include ash blonde, ice blonde and silver blonde.

What about dressing for your hair color for the evening or for an event? Metallics will look incredible with your hair hue, especially silver.

Both black and white look incredible on all blonde haired ladies.

The Best Clothes For Brunette Hair

Brunette hair is known for being rich and full. Despite this, every brunette is different and the colors that suit you depend on a combination of your hair tone and your skin tone. This means that dressing for your hair color is vital.

Warm toned skin has green or yellow undertones, whereas cool toned skin has blue or pink undertones.

Confused? We got you! Check out our guide on how to choose the right color for your skin tone.

Those with pale skin or brunette-black hair are in danger of looking washed out.

Katherine McNamara knows that green is made for red heads!

When you’re a sizzling red head, you know that your vibrant hair is all it takes to make a statement. Therefore, you want to opt for colors that enhance your blazing locks, rather than dull them down.

Green is your number one hue! As a matter of fact, anything from sage to emerald green will look smoking hot on you!

For neutral hues, opt for navy, tan and cinnamon.

Surprisingly, purple and a full spectrum of blue will look incredible on you too.

Avoid orange and yellow like the plague! However, red can look flattering on you, it’s all about finding the right shade. Fair skinned red-heads should opt for bold crimson, whereas tanned reds should go for softer and more demure red hues.

5 Supermodel Style Secrets You NEED To Know

Supermodel style: the thing we think of when falling asleep at night…

Ever dreamed of looking as effortlessly stunning as Gigi Hadid, or perhaps you spend hours at the gym in hope of Elle McPherson’s bod?

Rather than spending hours working out and torturing yourself through the latest diet fads (erm maple syrup diet, no thanks!), there’s a far easier way to channel a supermodel: through your style.

Today, we are sharing the style secrets that the supermodels have tried to keep hush hush.

Although we can’t promise that you’ll be street style snapped by Tommy Tom, or spend your spare time sipping lattes with Michael Kors, we can promise that you will look hot!

Like hotter than a car on fire in the Sahara desert hot.

Oh… I’m waffling? Sorry! Here’s 5 supermodel style secrets you need to know…

1. Use Tactical Layering To Elongate Your Legs

karlie-kloss-street-style

Although Karlie Kloss’s legs may be approximately as long as the River Nile, her layering techniques have enhanced them even more.

To create the illusion of longer legs, simply play with lengths in your various layers. Karlie has made her torso look shorter by layering a button up shirt under a crop jumper. Because of the length and fit of the jumper, her defined waistline has been risen. The tactically worn trench then blends it all together seamless.

Supermodel style tip: Wear your trench open to create the illusion of even longer legs.

2. Vertical Stripes Are Your New BFF

All-over striped pieces can seem a little daunting for us. However, this supermodel style tip is the definition of flattering! Simply wear vertical stripes to either add curves or make a body part appear slimmer.

Rosie’s statement striped pants are made to add definition to long, slim legs. On the other hand, if you want your pins to appear a whole dress size slimmer, opt for very fine vertical stripes, such as pin stripes.

Vice versa, if you would like your bust to appear larger, opt for thicker horizontal stripes up top.

3. Jazz Up A Boring Top With A Statement Scarf

There’s nothing worse than feeling like all of your tops are about as exciting as the inside of an empty paint can. Rather than throwing a cardboard box over your head and declaring ‘I won’t leave the house’, simply layer on a printed statement scarf a la Bella Hadid.

The bigger the better is the rule with this one! We recommend a wool scarf to cover up the majority of that plain Jane top.

Here are some scarves that we could imagine Bella #slaying in!

4. Define With A Tie Belt

Cinching your waist in with a belt isn’t exactly breaking news. As a matter of fact, I could cringe at the huge, chunky, plastic waist belts that were in style circa 2006.

Luckily, the tie belt is a more refined and classy way to define that waist. Add it to a flared jumpsuit, oversized dress, or shirt dress for a little bit of boho chic and a tinier waist. Lily Aldridge’s halter jumpsuit ensemble really shows off her slender waist and shoulders.

5. Treat Stripes As A Neutral

Ever wondered how supermodels tend to find print clashing as effortless as, well, breathing?! They are not simply sartorially blessed, they just treat monochrome stripes as they would any other color.

Repeat after me: stripes are a neutral.

Just like their neutral cousins, striped prints can be easily clashed with other prints, such as florals, leopard and paisley.

If you are feeling a bit shy about clashing prints with stripes, start out small and opt for a printed scarf. Go for the Spring roses wool scarf for a look that Claudia Schiffer would truly approve of!

Red

And the final rule for pulling off that supermodel style is…

Repeat this like a mantra and you’ll be ready for the paparazzi!

How To Choose The Right Color For Your Skin Tone

Ladies: There is indeed the right color for your skin tone. Don’t believe me? Watch and learn…

Ever thrown on a piece of clothing and thought ‘this just isn’t my color’; you’re not alone. For generations, women have been baffled by what colors  suit them. Many of us are all too quick to blame the other factors when we dislike a piece of clothing, whether it be the fit, the cut or the fabric. Although all of these factors inevitably add up, choosing a color that clashes with your skin tone is one of the most common mistakes that you can make.

So how exactly do you choose the right color for your skin tone? Today we decipher the color spectrum and bring you our favorite printed scarves that will suit your skin tone…

How To Determine If You Have A Warm or Cool Skin Tone

There is a never ending spectrum of skin tones, from alabaster white to stunning ebony. But although skin tones vary greatly, it is in fact the undertones of your skin that determine what colors will suit you.

There are several ways to determine your skin tone, the easiest, and perhaps quickest way is to look at the veins on the back of your hand. If your veins appear blue, you have a cool skin tone. If your veins appear green, you have a warm skin tone.

A more accurate way to determine your skin tone is to literally look at the undertones in your face. Hold up a piece of paper to your face, if your skin appears yellow, green or light brown, you have a warm skin tone. On the other hand, if you notice pink or blue undertones, you have a cool skin tone. Neutral skin tones will appear gray or ash.

Once you have a basic idea of your skin tone, it’s important to do a few more tests to ensure you have the right result. Hold up a bright yellow piece of fabric to your skin, if it appears glowing, your skin is likely to have warm undertones. Cool tones will have a similar glowing effect when next to blue fabric.

Testing out various foundations is also a great way to determine skin tones. Many brands have specific colors for warm, cool and neutral toned skin. Get to your local makeup counter and have a play!

How To Look Festive AND Classy

Disclaimer: No ugly Christmas jumpers were harmed in the making of this post.

For many, Christmas is some kind of excuse to look as tacky and ridiculous as possible. Cue wannabe Miss Claus heading out on Christmas Eve wearing head to toe red sequins with two baubles hanging from each ear. Erm… you forgot your reindeer antlers love! Not to mention figgy pudding print shirts, tinsel as a dress (yes really) and, god forbid, the worst of all **gasps** sexy Santa’s helper outfits.

If this is your kind of thing, go for it! However, I personally prefer to go a classier route when it comes to my Christmas get-up. There are many ways to look festive and classy, without appearing like you are some sort of sartorial scrooge.

Whether you are after a look for a Christmas party, or looking for an outfit for your Festive family feast, we’ve got you covered! Here’s how to look Festive AND classy.

Ditch…The Ugly Christmas Sweater!

Let’s be real here: even Gigi Hadid couldn’t make the quintessential ugly Christmas sweater look sexy! Unless you are headed to a specific ‘ugly Christmas sweater’ themed party, push that one to the back of your wardrobe. Yes: even the one with the 3d reindeer nose that your gran got you when you were 15…

Don…A Festive Scarf

how to look festive and classy

Instead of going heavy on the tack, opt for a pretty printed scarf that you can wear again and again. Scarves themselves are quintessentially Wintery and you can add an extra festive element by opting for a red scarf or even one that portrays a Winter landscape, such as our mystic branches wool scarf.

Ditch…Colorful Head To Toe Sequins

Although some colored sequin pieces can look incredible, head to toe colored sequins is in serious danger of entering the tacky zone! Sure, you want to look festive, but you don’t want to look like a Christmas parade threw up on you!

Don…The Sequin LBD

Take out the color factor and sequins can actually look really classy! A black sequin LBD is the perfect balance of festive and classy. One rule of thumb is to keep it simple with plain accessories and shoes. I adore how Olivia Palermo has toned down her sequin dress with nude heels and a matching nude clutch.

Ditch.. Light Up/Tinsel Jewelry

Unless you are ten years old, light up and tinsel jewelry is pretty much the antithesis of stylish! Sure, it’s fun to don earrings that light up as an office joke, but never, I repeat NEVER, wear them out in public. As for pieces of jewelry that play music…well; they should be banned.

Don… Crystal Jewelry

Christmas is made for glowing bling, but rather than having frosty the snowman plastered around your neck, opt for jewel and crystal pieces to make a festive statement.

Clear or silver crystal pieces will always be a winner, or, if you want to add color, statement emerald and ruby pieces are the classy way to embody the Christmas spirit.

Ditch… Santa Hats & Reindeer Antlers

Santa hats and reindeer antlers are cute for a bit of fun, but wearing them out in public is a whole different kettle of fish. Put it this way; would you go out wearing a Shrek mask? Would you wear bunny feet to do your grocery shopping on Easter weekend? Nosiree!

Don…Silk Hair Scarves

In order to look festive and classy, embellish your hair with a red silk scarf. Plus, it’s much more of a versatile piece that you can actually wear throughout the year.

Our exotic silk scarf is perfect for Christmas.

Ditch…The Mrs Claus/Santer’s Helper Outfit

I probably sound like the actual Grinch here, but every time I see girls out in public dressed as ‘sexy Mrs Claus’ I die inside a little. Newsflash: Mrs Claus would not be a sexy woman in her 20s dressed in skimpy clothes, she would be a sweet old dear wrapped up warm near the fireside. Shame on you! Mrs Claus would be appalled…

Don…A Classy Red Dress

If you want to look festive and classy, opt for a sleek red dress! Sizzle in one of this seasons’ silky slip dresses or go for a classic skater shape and be Christmassy AND stylish.

The temperatures are getting milder, so a jacket or blazer are a must! Long pants will also keep the chill at bay.

Make like a royal and copy Kate’s coral pants to add some uplifting color to your Fall wardrobe. Layer up with a nautical blazer and a suitably chic silk scarf. If the white tee is a bit too chilly, layer on a light jumper underneath your blazer.

Silk scarves and army blazers are a match made in heaven. The floral paisley silk scarf is the perfect embellishment for your favorite blazer.

Anyone else suddenly craving buckles now? 45 degrees is undeniably coat weather and what better way to ensure it look on trend than to go monochrome?

Margot layers up a plan top with a thick, black, longline coat and a buckled skirt. She adds a printed monochrome scarf for a little extra warmth. If 45 degrees can look this good, let that mercury fall!

Get The Fall Scarf Look

Silk scarves can be wonderful for dressing up a wintery coat too. For Margot’s look, opt for a monochrome scarf, such as the mixed print scarf. This thicker scarf is sure to keep the cold at bay!

For 40 Degrees- Kate Moss

Faux fur jackets are an incredibly stylish way to keep warm. Opt for an oversized shape so you can layer up underneath without looking bulky.

Kate teams her faux fur coat with her signature black, slim-fit pants. She adds a pop of Autumnal color with a burgundy printed scarf. Layer grey-toned pieces underneath your coat to really let the scarf do the talking.

Burgundy is one color that is made for Fall! Combined the exotic print silk scarf with a grey scale look to channel Miss Moss.

Freezing is just around the corner, so layers are a must! Jumpers, thick, woolen coats and jeans ensure you look stylish and feel comfortable at the same time!

Emma Stone adds a stunning pop of color to her look by layering a geometric printed jumper under her camel coat. She half-hides it by a black scarf, leaving the tiniest pop of red to catch the eye.

This one is all about creating an optical illusion. Layer the solid color scarf in black over a printed, vibrant jumper to tone it down.
