Sometimes fashion choices are not always the smart choices for our body. If you like to dress stylishly but still want to look after your posture, muscles and joints you don’t have to compromise  to move around freely and comfortably. Here are some top to toe healthy style tips from Viv Slater of Move Well Massage to help you look, move and feel great.

According to the Financial Times' resident style editor, Jo Ellison, this festive season it's all about keeping the focus on your top half with "over the table dressing". The theory is simple; people will only see your top half when you're sitting down at your Christmas dinner party, so focus your attention there.

This is a great approach as wearing colours that really suit you on your top half ensures maximum impact; your skin will glow, your eyes will sparkle and you're sure to turn heads for all the right reasons!

With more and more designers starting to lend their name to glasses frames of late, now is the time to pay attention to your next specs purchase! 

Your glasses have just as much impact on your outfit as any other accessory, and as they are so prominently placed, it's vital to get them right! It's also important to consider the occasion you're wearing them for, as you may need more than one pair (any excuse for a bit of shopping!)


Dad, brother, boyfriend, husband, son: adventurers, story-tellers, providers, teachers, heroes...but sometimes not always great dressers.

Jeans are a staple in every woman's wardrobe, but the style you choose can make or break an outfit.  Selecting your denim based on your body shape means you'll be able to step out confidently knowing that they are flattering and fitting in all the right places.

Take a look at the tips below to determine which denim style is your perfect match:

If you’ve watched makeover shows on TV, gazed at personal transformations in glossy magazines, read about celeb personal stylists or perhaps even seen a friend or colleague really up their game in the style stakes, you may have thought that a personal stylist is just for a chosen few or those with an endless clothing budget. 

In reality, it couldn’t be further from the truth.

Whilst you may love, adore and wear colour at every possible opportunity sometimes you may just want to keep things classic and simple. This is when a little black dress (LBD) comes in.
Black may not be in everyone's personal colour palette but it is not the colour you wear but how you wear it that makes it a success. You need to consider the fabric your LBD is made from, how much flesh is on show and what accessories and make-up are worn in order to make it work for you.


Style, what me? I don’t have time for style.

Ok. Enough. Stop right there. It is a sad fact that many women lose a bit of their sense of identity (and sometimes a bit of their waistline) after the ravages of childbirth, the baked-bean years and balancing school runs with careers. But I’m here to help you discover that it doesn’t always have to be this way. And you don’t have to spend a fortune to bring back the girl you used to know and feel fabulous right now. All you need is a little sparkle and some insight into the you that somehow went missing amongst the Sudocream and Calpol.

Getting dressed at this time of year can be tricky. Days start out cold and crisp but end warm and sunny, frequent bouts of rain necessitate outerwear but it's not time for your Winter coat just yet. What to do?
Thick layers, hats and heavy coats are still several weeks away but in the meantime you may be looking for some transitional outwear to keep out the chill whilst we move from Summer into Autumn.

Here's three of the top choices for Autumn 2015...
