NEW What to wear workshop – Autumn/Winter 2023 Colour & Style Update – Saturday 7 October – 2pm online

Back for Autumn is my ‘what to wear’ workshop where I share tips on navigating the colour and style trends for the coming season.

Whilst my mantra remains the same: just because it‘s in the shops, fashionable or on trend does not mean it will work for YOU and that’s OK!

Instead, I’ve done the hard work for you by searching and sharing what you can expect with tips on how to wear them.

These seasonal updates have been running for years now. Get some inspiration and guidance on updating your wardrobe. A new season is the perfect opportunity to reignite it after all!


If you’re not familiar with this workshop, it takes place online every year on the first Saturday of October. It’s then repeated six months later for the spring and summer trends on the first Saturday of April. 

Whether you’ve had your colours or style analysed before or not, these workshops are an opportunity to find out what the latest colours and styles are.


There’s no travelling and you’ll join from the comfort of your own home! So, book your ticket, grab a brew and a notepad and log into the live event!

I’ll share what’s in the shops and most importantly, what to look for and if the colours and styles will suit you!

It’s not about buy, buy, buy! It’s encouraging you to understand how can you be more sustainable with your choices whilst also bringing what you already have up to date.

This virtual event lasts around 90 minutes. You’ll learn the key colours, styles and trends this autumn and winter with a presentation I’ve prepared. Don’t worry – it’s not death by powerpoint as I’ll also share some of my top picks from the high street too.

To inspire you to check your own wardrobe, I’ll also share items from my wardrobe which tick off the new ‘trends’ you’ll hear about.


The Autumn/Winter 2023 event is on Saturday 7 October at 2pm. For reference, the Spring/Summer workshop takes place on the first Saturday of April (6th April 2024). Advance tickets will be available as soon as this event ends!


Tickets are £19.50.

This includes a copy of my AW23 shopping list, AW23 wardrobe checklist and summary of the colours and styles. There are all digital guides which will be emailed to you after the event.


This event has SOLD OUT.

10 Spring 2023 trends

Time flies doesn’t it? At the start of April, I shared the new colour and style trends for spring / summer 2023 at my ‘what to wear’ workshop.

Having hit the shops the week before, I found a number of items to help me illustrate some of the colour and style trends to the group. During the live workshop, I go through the presentation I’ve prepared all about what you can expect, what suits you and how to make it work for you. I also use the same presentation during the recorded video masterclass (the latest version is available here). The next live group workshop will take place on 7 October and showcase the autumn/winter 2023 colour and style trends.

I’ve showcased some trends I’ve found on the high street in my latest video which you can watch on Youtube:

Here are 10 spring trends featured in the video:

1. Blue midi off the shoulder dress – Next

2. Lime Green Ruffle Sleeve Tie Back Dress – Next

3. Blue/Yellow Striped collared shirt dress – Next

4. Pink Broderie ruffle sleeve Blouse – Love & Roses at Next

5. Khaki Wide Leg Cargo Trousers – New Look

Not all these will suit you of course! When you know what suits you, shopping really does become easier. You’ll learn this knowledge when you book a consultation, so do get in touch if the time is right for you.

If you missed the workshop, or you want to watch it again, the recorded version is available here until 30 September.

The Colour & Style guide for spring/summer 2023 is a physical handout you can pop in your handbag and available here. You’ll receive a copy of this if you book a Complete Colour Analysis Consultation between 1 April and 30 September.

What to wear workshop – Seasonal Update: Spring/Summer 2023 – Saturday 1 April – 2pm

Push through the sale rails and you might start to notice the colours and styles are changing. My mantra remains the same: just because it‘s in the shops, fashionable or on trend does not mean it will work for YOU – and that’s ok.

Spring colour trends and how to wear them

Something I get asked a lot about is how to shop for ‘your’ colours in the shops. When you know the shades of colours which suit you best, it makes it far easier to shop as you can pick out the colour trends that do work for you. Plus, this knowledge takes you through each and every season! It’s one of the many benefits to having a colour analysis consultation and you can wear colour all year round after all!

If you don’t know the shades of colours which suit you best, then this task is a little harder and could be where you make some costly mistakes.

The time of year influences the colours we tend to see. Think about the weather and the seasons, especially in the UK. For example, if you have lighter features then you’re more likely to find the shades of colour which suit you better in spring and summer. Whereas, if your features are much richer and darker, then you’re more likely to find shades in winter.

Not every brand is the same though. Some retailers do tend to favour certain shades over others irrelevant of the time of year. Plus, there’s specialist brands like Kettlewell who focus on colours for those who’ve had their colours analysed previously. (Get in touch if you’d like more details).

Colour trends

Woman & Home recently contacted Colour me Beautiful MD Cliff Bashforth. They were writing a piece about fashion colour trends and how to wear them. Read the article here.

I’ll focus on some of the colour trends highlighted in the article below. But, if you want to wear a colour which you feel doesn’t look right or isn’t in your swatches; here’s a tip. Keep it away from your face! Instead choose something like a bag, shoes or trousers/skirt. What you wear closer to your face should be a shade which compliments you and lightens and brightens your features. Something which doesn’t will cast dark shadows, make you look unwell or age you unnecessarily.


I’ve discussed this in my last blog which you can revisit here. What you’ll notice is how bright and bold the clothes are in the shops and vastly different from the oranges we tend to see in the autumn. This will be great for you if you have red hair or toned down a little for warmer skin tones.

Same rule I mentioned before – keep it away from your face or choose accessories if it’s not that great for you.


The article focuses again on the bolder greens out there but I’ve actually seen lots of shades of green this spring.

So, if you’re a fan of green and looking for some additions to your wardrobe then now’s a good time to look. Remember, green can have a yellow hue to it which makes it warmer so if you’re cooler don’t got to yellow based. If you’ve got white hair, you’ll want to avoid the yellow-y greens and go for icy shades.


The bolder pinks are better suited for those with more contrasting and brighter features. For others, you’ll need to tone it down or keep it away from your face.

If you’re following me on social media, I’ve shared a pink pleated skirt which doesn’t feature in my colour swatches (it’s too bright for me) but because it’s on my bottom half, it would have worked. Unfortunately, the fabric and the weight just wasn’t right and was too heavy for me so it didn’t suit my shape and frame. Colour might be the most visual reason for biting something, but if the style, shape or fit doesn’t work for you then it still won’t work. I go through all this and more during my style and image consultations.


An unusual ‘trending’ colour highlighted by Woman & Home and there was a few white pieces evidenced in the shops. I’d always recommend a soft white shade (think off-white) for most people pure white is too harsh for their features. We’re too early for Wimbledon, but how to wear white is something I’ve covered before! Read it here.
