Stand Out in a Crowd with These 5 Fool-Proof Fashion Tips

Prior to today’s Julien Macdonald Spring 2016 show at LFW, I had a bit of time to people-watch.


A few audience members caught my eye not because of who they are but because of how they put themselves together.


Which prompted this thought:  we spend the majority of our time preparing or waiting for events to begin, events which are often short-lived or anti-climactic.


Why not flip the script and catch others’ attention while we’re in down-time?. We owe it to ourselves to star in our own life-shows, whether we’re in line at the grocery, meandering in the front yard or waiting for a fashion show to begin.

Here are 5 foolproof techniques to get noticed and be remembered long after you’ve left the crowd behind.

Wear Red.

Red accessories like hats, bags, scarves and shoes are fail-safe attention-grabbers.

Add Neon to Your Wardrobe.

Wear Something Unexpected.


White hair on a young face, such as this audience member, caught my eye in a crowd of otherwise traditional hair colors.

Large, Colorful Spectacles Draw Attention to Your Eyes.


Think Kelly Green.
