Seductress Style

Seductress style is inspired by classic icons, movies and fashion from 30's, 40's and 50's; harking back to a time when glamour was at it's height. Form fitting suits, dresses, minimal accessories acting as the perfect accent to complete the look. Minimal patterns, textures and colours - black, white, red, beige, leopard print, tweed and leather are my favourites for this look you, it's about keeping it simple yet seductive.

Seductress style is about confidence and classic style; embracing your femininity and most importantly enjoying fashion! Any of the women that capture seductress style, to me, appear effortlessly beautifully yet perfectly groomed which is no mean feat! The key is not to look as though you've tried too hard to create any look! Don't to go too over-the-top with accessories, let the clothes do the talking! Hair and make-up should be kept classic with red lips and cateye for the final touches to create the look.
