Erica’s Style Tips
1. A great look starts with great underwear.
Never underestimate the power of a good bra. Make sure you invest in good quality underwear that supports your body. A great pair of Spanx or any support underwear can smooth you out and firm up problem areas.
2. Don’t be afraid to get basic alterations.
Many celebrities get their clothing tailormade to fit their bodies so they can look amazing. Major stores such as Harvey Nichols offer complimentary tailoring to their customers to create the perfect fit. A custom fit takes away that discomfort and potential fidgeting or ’hoisting’ so that you can feel as good as you look.
3. If you give a girl the right shoes, she can conquer the world.
So wear what makes you feel good. Don’t get too caught up in trends or buying a new outfit but opt for what you know makes you feel beautiful. Whether it’s your favourite pair of jeans, black dress or great pair of heels – wear them.
4. Do the squat, bend and reach test.
If you do choose to go out and buy yourself a new outfit, make sure you do the squat, bend and reach test. For jeans, trousers and skirts you squat and bend to see how it feels. Then for tops, jackets and coats you bend and reach to see how much movement you have. For dresses, you do all three.
