How to prepare yourself and your wardrobe for spring 2023

Spring must be on the way because a) it’s getting lighter for longer and b) the number of emails about the spring trends I MUST buy are slowly increasing!!

There are so many trends right now which can feel both overwhelming and confusing about what to buy. Before you make shopping mistakes you’re likely to regret, let me help! I’ve done the hard work to save you time scouring the internet and the high street. You’ll find the latest colour and style trends, where to get them and how to wear them.

A new season doesn’t have to mean spending a fortune on new clothes to stay relevant and feel good about yourself. A simple change of accessories can breathe new life into old pieces and bring you bang up to date.

Whether you’re a do-it-yourself kind, or you prefer a more guided approach, these seasonal updates are available all year round. Here’s a summary of the options available.


This physical handy, double-sided A5 guide can be popped in your handbag for any shopping trips.

One side of the guide takes you through the new colours for your clothes and makeup. The other side contains a summary of the trends with tips on wearing them.

The key colours are organised by dominant colouring type which allows you to focus on specific colours suited to you from your colour swatches and colour palette (if you’ve had a tonal colour analysis). This makes it easy to focus on updating your wardrobe this spring and summer. For a spring boost to your makeup, there’s new combinations and colours to try on your eyes, cheeks and lips.

It’s available to anyone who attending a Complete Colour Analysis Consultation from April until September and those purchasing a ticket to the ‘what to wear workshop‘ on Saturday 1 April.

Add yourself to the waiting list and get a 5 day pre-launch exclusive access (when you register for seasonal updates) or you’ll have to wait until 1 April. Once your order has been processed, it will be posted (UK only) via Royal Mail.

There are a few copies left of the previous Autumn / Winter 2022 colour and style guide. So, if you’re shopping in the sales or pre-loved it can still be a helpful guide. It will be reduced from 1 March but only whilst stocks last. Get it here.


For a more detailed guide on the spring/summer seasonal colour and style trends, this pre-recorded masterclass can be watched as many times as you like!

I share the same presentation and slides used in the live group workshop (on Saturday 1 April). You’ll receive a link to the slides and the recording which you can click to watch. I’ll talk you through the latest trends, the styles for your personality type, the key colours and examples for each dominant colouring type which includes where to find them and some spring makeup colours for eyes, cheeks and lips from the Colour me Beautiful cosmetic range.

This typically lasts around 30 -45 minutes and is a useful refresher if you’ve already attended the live workshop or you can’t make the date. Available from 1 April unless you’re on the wait list for my seasonal updates. If you are, you’ll get 5 days ahead of everyone else to access the material at an exclusive price too! (Register your details, click ‘seasonal updates’ and hit the button to register).

The previous Autumn / Winter 2022 on-demand masterclass is still available, so if you missed out, it’s available until 31 March. Get it here.


The live event takes place via zoom on Saturday 1 April at 2pm and lasts around 90 minutes.

During this virtual workshop, I’ll guide you through what you’ll find in the shops this Spring/Summer 2023 and how to assess what you’ve already got in your wardrobe! I’ll talk you through my presentation and slides which I’ve put together illustrating the trends, styles, key colours for your colouring type and where to find them all.

There will be some examples I’ve taken from my own wardrobe to demonstrate that trends really do come and go along with my picks from the high street. Tickets cost £17.50 and are available to purchase here for the event on 1 April.

Tickets include a copy of the colour and style update guide mentioned above, wardrobe and shopping checklists (to help you assess what you have and what you need this spring) and a discount voucher.


New for 2023. A complete digital guide featuring the colour and style trends this season to work through on your own.

You’ll get:

  • A summary of the key trends and tips on how to wear them this season
  • A list of the trends organised by style personality type
  • 6 key trending colours for each dominant colouring type (lights, deeps, warms, cools, clears, softs)
  • List of brands and retailers featuring the colour and style trends
  • London Fashion Week colour palette coded by dominant colouring type
  • Wardrobe checklist to help you assess what you’ve already got and any gaps
  • A shopping checklist to help you identify what to buy this season

This is a digital and practical guide which will be delivered electronically and is available from 1 April. Join the wait list and you’ll get a 5 day pre-launch exclusive access (register for seasonal updates and watch out for the email on 27 March!)


Having a waiting list for the seasonal updates makes you feel special and means I can make you an exclusive offer. The offers aren’t available outside of my lists (ie they’re not offered on social media). So, if you’re not on the list then you don’t get access. This seems fair to me as a reward and thank you for signing up to be part my community.

It means that you’ll get 5 days exclusive access ahead of general sale at an exclusive price.

To qualify, you need to be subscribed, selected ‘seasonal updates’ as an interest and still be opted in by the time the offer comes around. On 27 March, look out for my email with your exclusive pre-launch details. (You’ll also get access to the autumn/winter updates on 26 September too).

Register your details here: wait list and select ‘seasonal updates’. You can do this if you’re already subscribed too or click ‘update your preferences’ in the footer of the last email you got from me.

Preparing yourself for spring

It certainly feels more like spring with the sun shining doesn’t it?

April means it’s time for my spring and summer style updates.

Now the shops are awash with different colours and styles, I’m sure your emails have been pinging with the hot new trends too. Whilst I don’t wish to burst your bubble, it’s worth pausing before you fill your actual (or virtual) shopping basket.

Lately, I’ve had many conversations in which people are sharing how fed up they feel with what they’re wearing. So, I can see how appealing it can be to want to shop for new togs.

As the well known quote goes: “fashion fades, style remains.”

This is why my seasonal updates help you get prepared and arm you with the information you need to shop wisely this (and every) season!

I’ve recorded this video which explains more and I’ve summarised how I can help you below with what’s available.


If you find yourself baffled by trends or confused about what colour to buy, then this handy A5 guide is for you.

Introducing the first of my new masterclasses for 2022!

I do understand it’s not always possible to attend ‘live’ workshops and events. Some people enjoy learning in their own time too. Clients frequently ask for recordings of the workshops but this isn’t always practical or possible.

I’ve been working on alternative ways and have created this pre-recorded masterclass so you don’t need to miss out.

Whilst it has been pre-recorded, I still talk you through the same slides I use in the group workshop. I’m showing you the latest colour and style trends that you’ll find in the shops and how to wear them.

During this masterclass, you’ll learn:

✅ The new colour trends and where to find them

✅ What the key colours are for your dominant colouring type

✅ The latest styles and trends and where to find them

✅ How to make these work for you and your personality type

This masterclass is available at a special introductory offer price here.


However you need help getting your wardrobe ready for spring, there’s now a variety of options available.

What will you choose?


How to stop impulse buying

It was great to do my What to wear workshop for Autumn at the weekend and share the new colour and style trends that you’ll find in the shops and online.

I find that everyone is different when it comes to shopping, but often there is a little common problem I hear time and time again. Impulse shopping!

Now, I’m not trying to take the fun out of life and be a party pooper! It’s a common problem I hear all the time but one which can be solved!

The scenario

You go shopping, hoping to buy something new. You find nothing that fits your proportions / in your colours / in your size / flatters your shape / makes you feel good / feels like you. So, you go home feeling deflated, fed up and totally uninspired. That’s not a great place to be!

Because, it all looks so tempting, inspiring and seductive with the adverts, emails and the rails promoting those ‘must-have’ pieces and outfits. Encouraging you to part with your hard-earned cash. After all, you want to look that good too right? Fashionable. Stylish. On trend.

Stop ✋

Shop with purpose

That’s why my advice is to always shop with purpose. You need a better plan and one your wardrobe, purse and self-esteem will thank you for!

New outfits and clothes don’t have to be new all the time. Sometimes you just need to feel inspired to try a different combination to create a new outfit. If you look hard enough, you’ll probably find ‘new’ things in your wardrobe. Those pieces you bought ages ago and actually forgot that you had. Or those items you bought but didn’t know what to wear it with.

You see, trends come and go and fashion isn’t quite so ‘new’. Yes, the styles may be ever so slightly different but only you know if you’ll get your money’s worth out of buying it.

My what to wear workshops occur every six months for Spring/summer and Autumn/Winter. It’s an opportunity to hear me share my tips on how to make the current seasonal styles work for you but also how to review what you’ve already got and style them up differently. On Saturday, not only did I showcase some of the new trends you’ll find on the high street, but I also picked out 16 items I already had in my own wardrobe which ticked off those same trends! That’s why it’s important to know what you’ve got in your wardrobe.

Shopping tips

These are questions I ask myself when I shop:

Is it the right colour for me?

Does the style work for me?

When would I wear it? (occasion/lifestyle appropriate)

Does it fit and flatter my body shape and proportions?

Is it comfortable to wear?

What else can I wear it with?

Final thoughts

As you can see, it’s all about understanding what works for you, your lifestyle as well as your budget. Even when you know your colours, choosing the right fabrics and styles is equally as important or you still won’t feel ‘right’. That’s where my style and image consultations come in.

Finally, don’t forget about accessories. These can be a great way to put some jazz into your existing clothes and do a nod to the new trends at the same time. Plus, they’re a much more cost effective way of adding something new to your wardrobe.

Remember; just because it’s in fashion, does not mean that it suits everyone. If it’s not ‘you’, don’t buy it! It’s about being authentic and true to yourself. Wearing something that doesn’t feel like you will only make you feel uncomfortable and unhappy and that doesn’t make for a confident feeling person.

My style and image consultations will identify your style, your shape, proportions and the cut and fabrics which suit you best. Contact me to book your session.
