Have you ever looked at your wardrobe and thought to yourself… ‘I have nothing to wear!’
With the arrival of autumn we’ve teamed up with the lovely Katie Powell – a Fashion Expert on QVC, stylist and personal shopper behind The Wardrobe Insider, one of London and Surrey’s leading Personal Styling agencies. Working round the clock to ensure women feel AMAZING in their clothes as well as helping them to understand what works for them, Katie is always excited to help her clients achieve unstoppable confidence through their wardrobe choices.
Katie has put together some great looks for Autumn/Winter to help you maximise the pieces in your wardrobe and highlight key fashion stories for the current season. We wanted to share some of the behind the scenes imagery from our shoot and for Katie to tell you a bit more about the inspiration behind the looks she put together. Here’s what she had to say:
‘I wanted to encapsulate some of the key trends for the autumn season, but in a wearable way and include some timeless ways of dressing that always look fab. What I love about personal style is the unique interpretation each person brings – your best friend could wear the same set of clothes as you, but the way you style it could be completely different and therefore totally bespoke. This is what sets style apart from fashion.
‘The outfits that you see in our Style Your Wardrobe Show are designed to give you a fun template to work from and some creative inspiration, but you may decide to use different accessories, other colour combinations, or perhaps a more extravagant 1970s outfit. It all depends on what you have in your current wardrobe and where you feel the gaps are.
‘I have always been passionate about helping women to have the right pieces in their wardrobe and to feel 100% confident with the look they want to create, so I am always fascinated to see particular patterns in women’s wardrobes when I do my ‘Wardrobe Detox’ experience. You will see that most of these patterns are showcased in the show, which was great fun to be able to bring them to life with some of the wonderful brands here at QVC.
‘Colour is the biggest area that I think most women are missing, followed by those key pieces that enable you to create and build different types of outfits, aka ‘the capsule wardrobe’. Through the capsule wardrobe look, I wanted to showcase the foundations to this concept and show that you can either use these pieces to create a really classic look or use them elsewhere in your style.’
If you’re looking for great fashion advice from someone who has a passion for fashion (yes, we did just say that), then why not tune in to our new Style Your Wardrobe show every Wednesday at 1pm and Saturday at 3pm.
Over on QVC Extra we’ve been working on a new project too. Our new and exciting show called Household Heroes. So what’s the show about you ask?
Household Heroes is your one stop shop in making light work of the housework, with a great selection of problem solving cleaning products and fantastic storage solutions. We also have our resident cleaning expert, Russell Bristow, on hand to impart essential household tips, as well as answer the most frequently asked cleaning dilemmas.
