iStylista Style Goddess style guide
Ever wanted you own personal shopper, do you need help on how to style yourself to your body shape, do you need the do’s and dont’s of what items of clothing should be in your wardrobe.
Istylista helps us to learn the secrets of how to style ourselves confidently by wearing the most flattering styles of clothing to suit our body shapes and make us look years younger by wearing colours that compliment your natural colouring.
iStylista.com was launched in May 2009 as the online personal stylist, using the expertise of its founder Chantelle Znideric, professional personal stylist to the rich and famous. The website gives you the opportunity to shop for the latest designer clothes with confidence and convenience that comes with having your own personal stylist.
To receive my own style guide i had to complete a questionnaire, which was easy to complete. I was asked a series of questions like my body shape, entering my upper and lower dress sizes, face shape and eye, hair and skin colour, i did get stuck on my body shape but the guide helped as once clicked on it will give you a more detailed write up to help you decide on what you are. I always thought i was a rectangle shape but after reading the descriptions of the body shapes i actually realised i was a pear shape. It doesn’t matter if once you have submitted all of your measurements and shapes and realise after when reading through your personal style that you have inputted the wrong information you can just go back to istylista website and log in, go to ‘My changing room’ and here you get to edit your details.
The questionnaire also asks about your lifestyle ie; housewife, worker or a yummy mummy and any additional style advises where you may seek more advice on them troublesome areas, for me it was my bust area and having a short and thin frame.
Once finished i could download my style guide, which was 26 pages long and shop online with the chance of buying some clothes that are suggested for me to match my body specifications. The guide also told me what sort of haircut suits the shape of my face. I found iStylista to be an interesting way of finding out more about what suits me and the report was very descriptive and comprehensive, leaving nothing out, it even suggest jewellery to wear.
The style goddess contents are :
– Your body shape classification
– 10 essential body shape styling tips
– Your key clothing shapes
– Your best fabrics and patterns
– 3 styling tips to enhance your troublesome body parts
– Your best neutral colour palette
– Your best additional colour palette
– Colour styling tricks and tips
– Your ideal lifestyle capsule wardrobe and style secrets
On having a short thin frame i was advised to wear the same colours and tones from head to toe so that it would lengthen my overall frame and add instant height and my ‘what not to wear’ advice was to avoid wearing very short skirts, trousers with a turn-up and ankle straps on shoes, as these styles will only shorten my appearance, this is obviously where i have been going wrong as i do like to wear trousers with a turn up.
My most flattering colours are those that have a cool blue undertone to them, neutral colours will complement my skin tone. I was quite disappointed to read that I should avoid wearing black, as it’s too cold and harsh for my skin tone as it drain’s my overall complexion making it appear grey, pasty and tired looking. Makes sense really, but most of my wardrobe is made up of black clothes but i am advised not to throw them away but to just team them up more flattering additional colours worn nearer your face and keep black to a minimum to achieve a chic look.
As much as i love Gok Wan i am so glad that now i no longer need to apply to ‘How to look good naked’ to get my own personal stylist.
