How to get OSCARS ready?

All the beautiful people in Hollywood don’t just roll out of bed looking amazing, they each have a talented entourage responsible for their head-to-toe style.

The red carpet has always been all about the ladies, but this year in Hollywood, it is all about the men! And with awards season in full swing we want to talk about the classic style of Leonardo DiCaprio, the lead actor of ‘The Revenant’, who has been nominated for 2016 Oscars and we really hope Leonardo will win it.

Observing Leonardo’s style over the years we can state with confidence that it has not changed much. Wearing classic cuts, tailored suits, that fit his body very well, made him always looking sharp and handsome and we love how he does his sleek hair too.

You may ask… ‘How can I too look my best in sharp tailoring?’

Well-tailored suit is an equivalent of an LBD for a woman, it is never going out of style and that is why we’ve assembled the best tips to help you achieve your own menswear moment. Now you have no excuse but to look great!

1.Do your research before you buy a suit

Pick up a magazine and get up to date with what is happening now, so you buy something that lasts. Get an inspiration or a certain look/idea from movies and street style.

2.Get clear on what colours suit you

Although black is a default colour for suits sometimes navies or greys work best and more flattering. It all depends on your skin tone, eye and hair colour. Get some professional help if unsure.

3.Invest in budget-breaking suits

Get the best suit you possibly can, as it will last longer. Try on a variety of labels and see what silhouette is the most flattering on you.

4.Start buying the right size clothing

Chances are you’re a size smaller than you think and your suit pants are way too long. Get a good tailor and don’t be afraid to spend the extra money on alterations.

5.Get the right jacket shape for your body
For a slim build, think about a slim lapel and maybe a skinny tie. If you have a bigger, broader build go for a wider peak lapel and a substantial bow tie when you’re wearing a tux. When it comes to looking great in a suit, it’s all about proportion.

6.Get your pant hem right

Make sure your trouser is cut just long enough to sit on the top of the shoes, causing a  very minimal amount of crease at the front, i.e. a slight break in your pant hem. This small detail will make an ordinary man look like a true movie star. Have your tailor hem your suit pants so they’re slightly longer in the back. It will ensure you don’t show too much sock when you walk and won’t look too short when you’re standing still.

7.Right underwear

Having a good style is having right undergarments. Nobody wants to be remembered for a wardrobe malfunction on the big night. And that is why the first layers in your outfit and comfort are important factors in confidence.

Tommy John’s range offers the perfect mix of comfort and class with their famous stay-tucked-in undershirts and no-adjustment-needed men’s underwear, as well as a funny videos depicting what could happen if a star gets caught adjusting himself (… not a good look!).

8.That extra half an inch

Keeping everything crisp and elegant will make a difference. Do not forget about a bow tie, a pocket square, leather belt, cufflinks and a tie clip. Remember it is little things that make you stand out from the crowd.

9.Feel good

One carries himself differently when he feels good in what he is wearing. So enjoy, have fun with it and love your style!

Do not know what to wear?!

Many people ask me this question over and over…What colours should I or should not wear?! Is what i am wearing ok? Should i not wear this?

Imagine if you knew what styles/cuts and colours work best for you and how easy it would be to dress well, with the impact…

Just imagine how easy your mornings can be when you know what to wear and how to highlight your best features and make them work for you. 

what colours?

If looking and feeling good is one of your New Years resolutions for 2016, then it is time to act!

People make a lot of mistakes when it comes to style.

You may think….Why does this even matter?

It matters because these mistakes can sabotage the chances of:

  • getting a promotion/higher paying job
  • closing an important sale
  • getting that beautiful partner you were dreaming of

Common style mistakes that hold you back:

  1. Not dressing to your body type
  2. Not wearing clothing that fits
  3. Not dressing for the occasion
  4. Mismatching patterns
  5. Mismatching colours
  6. Buying a lot of clothing (quantity) – but not the RIGHT clothing (quality)
  7. Failing to pay attention to the details

During our style sessions we discuss each of the above.

However – this information is useless if you fail to take action on it!

How To Avoid Bra-Blems?


measuring tape

All women know, it can be super frustrating having bra-blems. And I think all of us (women) can agree that these issues can make you want to rip off your bra the moment you walk in the door at the end of a long day! Sound familiar?

Well, no more! I would like to share with you few simple and easy fixes that would make you to fall in love with your bra again! click here for tips

“If you want to know what style of breasts you have, check Breast Shape Dictionary (see Fit Guide section) at ThirdLove to find a best bra style just for you! Also check out their great bra collections once you know the style that works best for you!”

Apparently 80% of women wear a wrong bra size according to Journal of Chiropractic and Osteopathy. I often get asked ‘How often should I get refit?’. The answer is once a year, because we are women, and our bodies change all of the time. Lots of things affect your bra size: pregnancy, weight gain and loss, holiday eating, stress, illness, medications, hormonal shifts, menopause… the list is long!

So if you have not measured yourself this year it is a perfect time to do so. Don’t be surprised if your bra size is not what you thought, as I mentioned lots of women wear a wrong size bra. You may even be in between sizes and choose a ½ size cup for your closest fit.

Wearing the right bra size does wonders for your figure, helps you feel more comfortable and confident and it’s best for your breast health and posture too!
