Welcome to our spring/summer instalment of Style Your Wardrobe, the fabulous new show concept to help you maximise the clothes in your wardrobe, give you stylish inspiration on new outfit ideas and round up the biggest trends for the coming season.
With the arrival of spring we’ve teamed up with the lovely Katie Powell, a fashion expert on QVC and personal stylist and personal shopper behind The Wardrobe Insider [www.thewardrobeinsider.co.uk], one of London and Surrey’s leading Personal Styling agencies. Working round the clock to ensure women feel amazing in their clothes and helping them to understand what works for them, Katie is always excited to help her clients achieve that unstoppable confidence through their wardrobe.
Katie has put together some great looks for spring 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…
“My favourite part of doing this show is being able to put such a variation of looks together that capture realistic style requirements for women of all shapes and sizes. Spending most of my week in women’s wardrobes gives me first-hand experience on what we all want and need from our clothes and the common concerns we all share on dressing for our body shape, being able to replicate catwalk style in our own way and feeling confident every day.
There is a gorgeous offering of wearable trends this season that I have covered in some of my 10 looks; an exotic update on stripes, metallic style for your daywear wardrobe, using colour to enhance your mood and 90s cool, which is a really comfy one to get involved with.

One of the most exciting aspects of the summer season has to be the social calendar, attending wonderful events, glorious garden parties and enjoying the sunshine, so I couldn’t resist doing a look all about finding the perfect occasion dress. Finding THE dress can sometimes be a minefield, so check out my Tiana B wonder that I think ticks all the boxes and will look wonderful on you all.
And if you’re looking for a new set of jewels this season, we’ve got that covered too as I picked out some of the most dazzling accessories in the ‘Accessorise your style’ look. You have to check out the Butler & Wilson couture pieces; they are to die for and will put the ultimate wow factor on any personal style!
But before you start choosing any pieces for this season, be sure to check out ‘Silhouette Style’ which is all about helping you to dress for your body shape; celebrating your best bits and camouflaging the bits that you may not feel so comfortable with. If you know your individual proportions, you can feel confident with buying the right clothes to suit them and feel fab in any outfit.
All in all, this is about helping you to step outside of your comfort zone, find something a little bit unique and giving you fun tips and tricks on all things fashion!”
