Before Nisha jetted off on a well-deserved holiday to Ibiza last week (all play and no work for once), I asked to have a sneak peek in her case to see what fabulous evening outfits she’d put together, and got her to give me the low down on why they were all her favourites. Brimming with lust-worthy Louboutins, Manolos, and glamorous designer dresses cut to love her petite Hourglass curves, every single look, she says, is one she turns back to time and time again, every combination is perfectly suited to not only her shape, but also her deep, dramatic Winter palette.
“I love packing for holidays. It’s not stressful for me at all, it’s exciting, as I’m well-practiced in dressing for my own body after years of styling others. I’m a very petite Hourglass, with a small waist and rounded hips, but pretty-much have to have everything I own tailored for me because of my height and frame! The pieces I’ve chosen for Ibiza, the black French Connection jumpsuit for example, the nude Louboutins and the brilliant red Halston Heritage Dress with it’s asymmetric neck, are ones I’ve worn time and time again, as I know they look great on me as they are perfect for my shape, size and colouring. For me they were all investments, purchases I felt absolutely amazing making because, as I’ve definitely proven to myself, if you look to only buy key items that are hero pieces for you, clothes or accessories you just know look better than everything else, then they will see you confidently through all occasions and more than make their money back. That’s the beauty of owning a completely perfect capsule wardrobe catered specifically towards you, everything makes you feel like you look your best, all the time.”
- 1 – “This French Connection jumpsuit is perfect for the first few nights of your holiday whilst you build up your tan, the deep v-neckline is perfect for me, as is the fitted waist, both showing off my shape. I normally add a statement necklace for added glam, and my bright pink Manolo Blahniks as I love a bit of colour blocking. Plus the point lengthens my legs!
- 2 – “Nothing looks better than a white dress, red lips and a tan; I’m a sucker for Grecian-inspired shapes (this dress is a favourite) as they seem to cinch in all the right places and fall flatteringly over my curves. My red and white strappy Miu Miu heels avoid it looking too bride-like and add a fun spin.”
- 3 – “Love these printed Whistles shorts. They’re high-waisted so perfect to show off my figure, and so summery and chic when added to a bright white (one of my perfect colours as a Winter) halter-neck bodysuit and my amazing nude Louboutins which give my legs some much-needed length!”
- 4 – “Asymmetric necklines and cuts feature a lot in my wardrobe, I love this red Halston Heritage dress, it’s my perfect red, bright, true and bold, and I’ll team it with my metallic silver Jimmy Choo sling-backs for that extra bit of height and glamour.”
