Five Style Tips I Wish I’d Known as a Teenager: by Suzi Grant
Posted July 28, 2017 by Bethanie Lunn
So with that, I asked for Suzi’s pearls of style wisdom for dressing well and looking put together – the kind of things you only know with the experience of time…
- Leave your eyebrows alone! I over plucked them as a youngster and now they’re too thin.
- Less is more: showing your cleavage AND your thighs is not a good look. One or the other but not both if you want to look stylish
- Less is more when it comes to makeup too: the very young don’t need it and it will save your skin as you get older
- Get your colours done: or at least know what suits you and what doesn’t. I wish I hadn’t waited till I was in my 40s, it would have saved me a fortune knowing what makes me look my very best, skin tone wise
- Have a really good makeover at a place like MAC Cosmetics so you can find the right look for you, easily
- Invest in your foundations! A good bra and pretty underwear is something I have always been bad at spending money on
- Get into hats, they’re a great style accessory and protect your face from the ageing effects of the sun
- Wear sunglasses for the same reason, they protect your eyes from the harmful rays and make you look set apart
- Learn to sew! I wish I had. I love vintage and markets, and spend a fortune having things altered to fit better. It will save you a fortune in the long run
- Get into wearing sneakers for walking and popping pretty heels on at the end of your journey. It saves you having bulging calves and a sore back in later life!
- Get into accessories. Headscarves, headbands, bangles or necklaces can all be picked up for a song and can turn an old outfit into a brand new look.
Simple advice that makes a big difference, I feel. We could all learn a lot from her. Suzi dresses how she wants to and ‘doesn’t care a jot’.
If you want another good read, take a look at Suzi’s post on How to enjoy gigs on your own! Being ‘single’ shouldn’t stop you from trying things or from missing out, hell no – it gives you every opportunity to get out there. Suzi’s tips and shared experiences are brilliantly confidence-boosting.
