1. For your shape, you’re right darker colours on the top are quite flattering. My suggestion is to wear lighter colours and patterns on the bottom to add interest to your outfits. I’ve offered a number of choices (including darker bottoms) to try to see which you like best.
2. Accessories will be important for you to create interest and add a bit of edge, which will be great on you! So have fun with jewellery, scarves, shoes and bags.
3. I added a few investment pieces for you with other very affordable pieces. A nice balance for you to choose from. The jacket from Aritzia will be amazing on you, you’ll love it! It also fits big so a size 10 will work well.
4. The outfits below are a small selection of the endless number of outfits you can create with these pieces. Once you know what you’re keeping, spend 30 minutes trying each bottom with each top… with the layer pieces and without. Play with the accessories on and off and all the different shoe options. Make notes of the combos you love. Take pictures of them if you like. Keep those notes and pictures handy so you have plenty of go-to outfit ideas in the morning.
