Blonde babes will know that there are a huge spectrum of tones in the blonde-sphere! These range from Gwen Stefani platinum, to Cara Delevigne mocha.

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.

Your Perfect Clothing Colors

Pastel hued tones are your best friend! Indulge in your sweet side with an array of baby blue, lilac and pink. If you fancy trying out red, opt for red tones with cool undertones.

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

Avoid reds and oranges with too many warm undertones, as these may wash you out.

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.

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.

How To Style A Scarf For Your Body Shape

Do you know how to style a scarf for your body shape?

Is that even a thing?

Yep: it actually is!

Nope, I’m not crazy!

Whether you are a perfect pair or beautiful and boyish, when you know how to style a scarf for your body shape, this accessory will be your new BFF.

Today we teach you how to style a scarf for your body type.

What’s My Body Shape?

So you’re probably thinking: ‘what exactly is my body shape?’ Although women come in a stunning array of shapes and sizes, your body type all comes down to your proportions.

Scientists and stylists alike have pin-pointed four main female shapes with certain body proportions. These body shapes are apple, pear, hourglass and rectangle.

Am I A Pear Body Shape?

You ladies are all about that bass! The pear body shape is characterized by a larger bottom half and smaller top half. Pear shaped beauties often have larger hips and thighs, a slim waist, a smaller bust and small shoulders.

Ask yourself the following questions:

  • Am I a smaller size in tops than I am in skirts and trousers?
  • Do I tend to carry my weight around my butt and thighs?
  • Do I have a slim waist?
  • Do I have a large hips to waist ratio?

If the answer to most of these questions is yes, you are a pear shape.

Am I An Apple Body Shape?

Much unlike the bootylicious pear shape, the apple shape honey has tatas for days! The apple body shape is typically larger on the waist and bust with slimmer hips and legs.

You know the drill…..

  • Am I a larger size in tops than I am in skirts and trousers?
  • Do I tend to carry my weight around my middle.
  • Is my tummy larger than my hips?

Yes? You are an amiable apple.

Am I An Hour Glass Body Shape?

Marilyn Monroe: eat your heart out! The hot hourglass shape has a large bust and hips and a slim waist.

Ask yourself:

  • Do I wear the same size in tops, bottoms and dresses?
  • Is my waist my slimmest part?

If so, you have an hour glass figure: lucky girl.

Am I An Rectangle Body Shape?

A rectangle body shape is defined by equal proportions on the bust, waist, hips and legs. This ‘straight up and down figure’ is often sported by models and athletes.

Ask yourself:

  • Is my body straight?
  • Are my waist, hips and bust the same size?
  • Do I gain weight equally around my body?

Bingo! You are a rectangle shape.

How To Style A Scarf For Your Body Shape

When it comes to learning to style a scarf for your body shape, your aim is to balance out your proportions to look more like the hour glass shape.

Scarves are a fantastic accessory to add volume on specific body parts. Alternatively, slim scarves can be used to cinch the waist in or draw attention to certain areas.

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!

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