Though I’m not a famous fashion blogger, nor a famous stylist, I do sometimes get asked about fashion advice. Now I’ve got a lot to say mind you, about aesthetics and style, but I often get asked what’s the best fashion advice I have. I usually say something regarding general style and confidence, but that’s not really the best fashion advice I have. The best fashion advice I have is this – have a strong and healthy body. *notice I didn’t say “perfect” or “thin”*
On a strong and healthy woman – exercise and healthy eating habits – anything looks good. You can put a paper bag over some healthy figures and they make it look couture – and the opposite is true. I remember seeing pics of certain celebrities/models in high couture just before a major breakdown and they looked horrible. So my best fashion advice is this – eat well and get a move on, the rest is just details.
P.S. The winner of the Summer Lovin’ Giveaway has been decided and it was Rebecca!
