If the January blues have already settled in, it’s worth putting some time and effort into the things guaranteed to make you feel better. From essential treatments to luxurious items, here are ten fashion and beauty tricks that’ll always make you feel good…
Chipped nails and dry cuticles won’t do you any favours. Cough up £10 for a good old file and polish, and opt for bright red or dark purple for instant glamour.
Classic Silk Shirt
Grown-up, elegant and stylish, you won’t regret having one really great silk shirt in your repertoire for dull days. Team with leather pants and heels for an instant ready-to-go look.
Confidence-Boosting Spray Tan
Skin looking a bit lifeless? Get an instant feel good hit with a St Tropez spray tan – it’s cheaper than a holiday.
Nothing makes you feel polished like a well-tailored blazer. Look for sharp edges, defined shoulders, and make sure it fits you perfectly.
Ditch the sneakers – the best way to instantly feel glamorous and pulled-together is to slip on a statement pair of heels. Pointy stilettos, embellished pumps, strappy sandals… anything goes.
Step away from the straighteners and invest in a really good blow-dry to feel shiny, bouncy and pampered. Check out our favourite blow-dry bars here.
Wearing all grey and black will keep you down, so instead look to a statement, colourful coat to liven up your everyday wardrobe. We love decadent brocade styles this season.
A dash of red lipstick brightens up any face, and instantly makes you feel more glamorous. Forget reserving the look for party time – roadtest it during the day instead.
Essential to the feeling-groomed factor, getting your eyebrows done is an easy shortcut to looking polished. Don’t chicken out and go for waxing – threading is the only way for it.
You’re never going to feel good on the outside when underneath you’re wearing greying cotton knickers and a ‘comfy’ bra. From silky separates to lacy bralets, now’s the time to invest in – or at least start wearing – your best underwear.
