Never take your style for granted. You could be the bell of the ball and the queen of the catwalk one week, only to be as fashionable as Pat Butcher the next. Your flared jeans that looked stunning in the summer will be naff by autumn. And your striped tops that were mesmerizing last year will look laughable when compared with the latest Vivienne Westwood collection.
Few things can be relied upon in the world of catwalks and glamour girls. Tastes change quicker than wildfire spreading across a city. Even materials are different – PVC is sooooo 2006, dahling!
Simply flick through a few older fashion magazines to see how quickly time can change tastes. The style tips will read like they’re from another century.
In a world of uncertainty, surely we all need something we can rely on? But what?
If there’s one thing that’s never gone out of fashion, it’s good health. Just look at the Amazonian catwalk models who strut their stuff. They’re flawless and unruffled – and ridiculously healthy.
But while models would have you believe their glamour is effortless, their good health is hard-earned.
The routine of good looks
A typical fashion model’s day consists of waking up, eating a healthy breakfast, hitting the gym, eating a healthy lunch, being outfitted for clothes, hitting the gym again, eating a healthy dinner and hitting the gym before bed.
Beyond their pampered lifestyle lies a strictly regimented diet and exercise plan, the likes of which would seem insane to you and me.
Your fitness regime doesn’t have to be quite so rigorous, unless you’re planning on heading down a catwalk anytime soon.
Fitness for you
Firstly, your health begins in the shower. Invest in WEN cleansing conditioner to enjoy softer, silkier hair and purchase organic soap and body wash to keep yourself fresh.
After this, fill your breakfast with a few healthy choices – muesli, orange juice, kumquats and other fruits will make you feel brighter during the day. Your other meals should follow this vague pattern, although they should give you more protein and minerals.
Exercise doesn’t have to be a Full Metal Jacket-style ordeal, either.
If you’re worried about straining yourself from the off (or you simply can’t be bothered), don’t start with a rigorous regime. Instead, take 15 minutes out of your day to stretch, run on the spot and develop your muscles.
After a few sessions, you’ll be gagging to add an extra five minutes to your routine, working up a sweat all more. After a few extra time allotments, you’ll have graduated to a full-time fitness fanatic.
If you stick to this regime for a few months, you’ll be able to look stylish in almost anything. Good health is the key to great fashion, so get into shape and you’ll be the bell of the ball all year round.
