QUESTION 1: Hello Daniel, I am a 28-year-old woman with a dark skin tone. I have always been very experimental with my wardrobe and been very brave wearing bright colours. However with the coming year, I would like to change my look. Kindly suggest colours that will suit my skin tone without me looking garish.
ANSWER: Try pastel shades like light yellow, blue and fawn. These always go well with darker skin tones. Team pastel blouses with denim skirts or jeans. Accentuate your eyes and choose accessories that go with your outfit.
QUESTION 2: Happy Holidays Daniel. I am a 35-year-old mother of two children. I need a suggestion on how to style a pear shaped woman like myself?
ANSWER: Hello there and Happy Holidays. For a pear shaped figure like yours I would suggest something fitted and flared. One option is to pair a blouse with a fitted panelled skirt that has a flared bottom. If you’re more comfortable in trousers, you could wear a pair with a cowl-neck blouse or go for cropped trousers with a straight-fitted top.
QUESTION 3: Hello Daniel, I was wondering if pairing my tux with a bow tie this New Year would add a nice classy touch to my look.
ANSWER: Hello. I personally feel that very few people out there can pull off a bow tie. Most of them land up looking like waiters. A nice classy tie is always a safe option. But if you think you can pull it off, why not?
