Gorgeous Tops

Embellished sweaters and blouses are guaranteed to add a festive sparkle to your outfit. Neutral colours, nude pumps and a dark pair of jeans will keep your look simple and chic. Red tunics are also ideal for Christmas. If the weather isn’t to flash, add a pair of boots, leggings or stockings and you will be left with a sophisticated holiday look. However if the weather is looking up, switch your outfit by pairing sequinned shorts with a neutral blouse.

Shoes

Flats are essential if you are the host of a Christmas get together as you are probably going to be on your feet for the majority of the day. Luckily, statement flats are a hot trend. Metallic or sequinned shoes will look amazing with cropped cigarette pants.

Statement Accessories

Chandelier earrings will add the perfect finishing touch to your ensemble and are guaranteed to turn heads. You can also make a bold statement with a glitzy clutch; it will be one worthwhile investment that you can use all year round.

Dresses

When it comes to choosing a dress, don’t be afraid to experiment with patterns and materials. If the weather is hot why not try a simple maxi dress? If the weather takes a turn for the worse, a midi dress should be your backup plan. Look out for styles with embellished collars.

I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas!

After Styleyou | Chloe

Some of you may be wondering, ‘What will I do after I finish the Styleyou eCourse?’

Today we answer that question with Chloe Whiting. Chloe recently finished her Fashion Stylist course and has kindly offered to give us an insight so we can show you all the possibilities that can come from Styleyou!

Why did you choose to study with Styleyou?

I had been daydreaming about it for a long time! I was working in Retail Management and would always think when Stylists came into store, ‘Why can’t I do that?’. It was all the good, fun parts of customer service!

So I decided to  youtube dream wardrobes and stylists one morning, determined to find the best place to study. I thought I may of had to go overseas, and then I found Styleyou and Angela Stone!

How do you feel the course has helped you to prepare for your dream career?

It has given me the tools I need to understand all areas of Fashion and Styling. I can now step into a group of people and be able to help each of them as individuals. There’s a lot that comes into it, but it’s Angela’s talent through out the course and her teaching skills enhanced my performance as a stylist!

I feel so excited everyday! I’m so happy she has created this course and extended her abilities for us to learn! It’s the best!! The dream job… I’m serious!

You’ve worked with Angela Stone and the team since completing the course. How does that feel?

Working with Angela and the team has been incredible! It only gets better! Not going to lie though, my first day I was so nervous, but also really excited! I’m lucky enough to have these wonderful ladies as good friends! We have fun!!
 
I feel so empowered, real and excited. Helping our clients and all the incredible events we’re involved in! Working at Cup Week was my favourite gig this year and apparently I was working!

What was it like reading your first clients colours?

I was a bit overwhelmed and I did get a second opinion to reinforce what I knew! My client loved the experience and was ok with that! Putting all the pieces together of a colour reading is something you do in your own way. I went home and practiced on my mum and my friends. 

It’s such a mind blowing experience. It really changes your life just having the knowledge that your wearing what suits you!

Where to from here?

More colour parties, and in the near future, international shopping trips. 
 
My Facebook page, Chloe’s Manner, is a place I post to inspire people to look and feel good! It also inspires me everyday. I have recently bought a fashion sketchpad so if I see anything that I love, I go home and sketch and give it a touch of Chloe!

Highlights from 2014

2014 was a great year for the Angela Stone brand!

March marked the release of ‘The Style Guide’ and the launch of my wine label ‘Angela Stone Wine’. I was overwhelmed by your passion towards these projects. Thanks to you they were a success.

The Angela Stone Wine range has now completely sold out. It has certainly been an amazing journey, so make sure you stay tuned because we will be releasing a whole new range next year.

Most of you will already know that I have also launched an exclusive training course for emerging fashion stylists. ‘Style You’ is a platform I created for like-minded entrepreneurs to learn how to setup their very own styling business. I am so proud of all of 2014’s Style You Graduates, I know you are going to go far. With your talent and ambition, the world really is your oyster.

I just wanted to write this to say thank you, without your support none of this would have been possible.

I will now leave you with one of my favourite mantras…

One of the most powerful ways to eliminate worry is through passion.  Passion is the most potent means of overcoming our limitations.  Passion is the spiritual equivalent of gravity. It draws things together.  Attach passion and burning desire to the thoughts you choose and you will increase their natural magnetism. Where do you have passion? Focus your energy there and your worry WILL dissolve because of the shift in your attention. AS.
