Get the hottest tips on fashion styling

THIS Fashion Season, we bring to you an assortment of styling workshops to bring out the fashionista in you. From hair and make up tips to fashion styling, the workshops will provide you with all the knowledge you need to dress well and feel good.
Professional model-turned-stylist Jerome Awasthi and fashion editors from The Straits Times Urban, Her World and Nuyou magazines will personally be giving workshops on make up, hairstyling, and most importantly, how to dress yourself well!
If you have some burning questions like, "Should I stay away from wearing white since it makes me look fat?" or "How do I wear big motifs without looking like an over-ornamented Christmas tree?", then you should attend the workshops and have your questions answered.
But since we are on the topic of how to wear white garments, here are some advice from The Straits Times Urban's fashion writer, Ian Lee.
"Anyone can wear white to their advantage. For anyone with a proportionate figure, wearing all white is as flattering as wearing all black. And for someone with an disproportionate figure, pairing white with a darker hue can conceal body flaws. Wear the darker hue on the larger body part to make to make it appear smaller. At the same time, wearing white on the other body part draws attention away from the area with the figure flaw. As a result, the body looks more proportionate."
As we all know, animal prints or jungle motifs can be tricky to pull off. Here's a tip from Ian on the proper way to wear such clothes.
"Go for prints proportionate to your body size. Leopard spots, snake skin prints and tiger stripes come in all sizes. A petite girl should wear small prints so that the print doesn't overwhelm the body. The converse is true for a lady who is larger built.
Pair prints with solids - a printed top with dark jeans and layered under a black blazer makes a smart yet trendy look.
Another easy way to wear the trend subtly is to go for accessories - a cuff, a belt, heels or a bag with animal prints let the wearer take a walk on the wild side, but in a sensible, restrained way."
If you would like to learn all about how to work the hottest Spring/Summer trends, update your weekend wardrobe or party wardrobes, or maybe even add on a fashionable touch to your everyday workwear, this is the workshop you should be attending.
