Olivia Hanlon Stokes - Personal StylistAre you just as fussy about being well groomed at home as when you’re going out?

I find when detoxing wardrobes of clients there is a big difference between the clothes they use for working, going out and what they are wearing at home. I am not referring to the clothes that you have maybe for painting or doing other grubby jobs that need to be done at home.

If a visitor or courier came to the door you would be embarrassed to be seen in the clothes?

The items could include jeans, slacks, ponti pants, knitted tops of different weights and sleeve lengths or lounging wear for the evening and there is a good range of clothing in this area now so you don’t have to wear your dressing gown!!. When it comes to meal preparation and you do not want to be spattered by food that you are preparing it is handy to have an apron to pop on and now there are plenty of trendy ones available and the cooking shows always show contestants wearing them so you can imagine you are a contestant making a wonderful dish.

Shoes should be comfortable and flat for most ladies or a stylish pair of slippers for the cold nights.
