Fit Tips Recap
Last Year we held two successful fit clinics facilitated by Kathryn Brown and this month, we wanted to review a few basics to help you shop for the spring season and find your best fit.

Dress the body you have now, not the one you were or that you want to be! We can put body shapes into 5 main categories:  Hourglass, Rectangle, Triangle, Inverted Triangle and Circle. We have trained staff who can help you recognize and dress these shapes.

Identify your body type and remember to balance your top and bottom... clothing  can camouflage problems and create balance.

  • If you want to look taller, the first thing you can do is shorten your sleeve length. If you have very short legs, try wearing an elbow length sleeve. The rest of us should try the 3/4 sleeve. This works almost every time.
  • To balance your head and upper body try wearing the correct neckline or collar. If you are on the thinner side or have a small chest, wear a higher neckline to give the illusion you have more real estate on the upper floor. High necklines will always add bulk to the upper body, so if you are top heavy, try a lower neckline below the "dent" in the collarbone.
  • If you have longer legs you can create a better proportion by wearing medium or long length jackets, long sleeves and dropping the waistline.
Colour reflects change in fashion and most women can wear most colours in the colour wheel.  Remember wearing the fashions of the 80s? Then there is a good chance you will need stronger colours as a mature woman. Add wonderful spring colours of Turquoise, Red, Coral, Yellow and Blue to your wardrobe. All will give you colour and help you look your best. 
Start shopping for Spring 2016 styles and selection now!  New styles are arriving daily including fashion tunics from Papillon and much more from all of our lines.

Please get your friends to sign up for our monthly newsletter, so they won't miss out on all the events , fashion shows and trunk shows happening this spring!
