According to the NHS, the effects of light and dark can have a significant effect on our well-being. When the days are shorter, our bodies become deprived of sunlight and can sometimes suffer from seasonal affective disorder (SAD), which has an impact on our mental health.
Lifestyle changes can help lift our mood: seeing friends, eating well, exercising, listening to music and getting out in the fresh air. But what about wearing the right clothes?
“Our reaction to seeing inspiring, bright, vivid things is mood-lifting, which has a physical effect on us, improving blood pressure and strengthening the nervous system. I love incorporating bright and stimulating colours into my looks as it can help to keep our moods positive and counteract the dark days and lack of sunlight,” says Natasha Musson, Wardrobe Consultant and Stylist.
It can be difficult to have the time, knowledge and confidence to find clothes that make you feel and look great, so you might look to hire some help. Natasha Musson - The Secret Stylist - started her career in fashion in the BBC Production department. Now a leading personal stylist and consultant, she works with a wide-range of clients across the UK. From styling on a one-to-one basis to high profile productions and corporate events. She advises on fashion trends, creating looks that include old favourites, vintage discoveries and hand-picked pieces from the high street and beyond. She specialises in creating looks that are tailored to an individual’s lifestyle.
Natasha says, “My aim is to define a style that parallels the client’s personality and lifestyle. Creating a style that is true to them. It will save time and money as I’ll be directing them to brands and styles that compliment them. I’ll develop an inner confidence in the clients, teaching them fabulous styling techniques they can use in the future.
“Creativity is key but also practically, I’ll teach them how to be resourceful with the garments they buy.
“Ultimately it’s a fun life changing experience they will never forget.”
Natasha ensures clients get the most out of their wardrobe and that when adding to it they make the right purchases. She has a great talent for making people understand and feel confident in their own style.
