Plan your weekly outfits and win £200 worth of H&M Vouchers

Plan your weekly outfits and win £200 worth of H&M Vouchers

Do you find mornings incredibly stressful?  Can’t find anything to wear? Do you arrive late for work in a bit of a state?




We’ve teamed up with Melanie Wall, Stylist and Colour Analyst based in Hertfordshire who shares her advice on planning your weekly outfits so you don’t find yourself stressed out first thing in the morning. 

She advocates setting aside some time on the weekend to plan your weekly outfits; saving you dashing around in the morning trying to locate a missing item, discovering all of your tights are still wet in the washing machine or finding out your new puppy has chewed your favourite pair of heals or in Mel’s case her new rabbit (named Jimmy Chew).
 

How to Enter

To celebrate working together we’re holding a giveaway for one of our lucky readers to #win a £200 Gift Voucher from H&M, one of Mel’s favourite shops.  But we’re going to make you work for it, not too much though.

A weeks worth of outfits

We’d love to see the outfits you have planned for the week you can Tweet us, post to our Facebook, Instagram it or blog it for a bonus 5 entries!  Further details are included in the entry form including Terms and Conditions.

How to create a collage

If you’re not sure how to capture several outfits in a photo there are loads of different apps and programs that allow you to quickly create collages.  Below are 3 that we can personally recommend and have used ourselves.

pic frame app for creating photo collages
1) PicFrame – (iPhone/iPad app) allows you to create collages from pictures that are already in your camera roll.  Simply choose a frame, then click the segments and pop in the picture.
picmonkey online photo editor
2) PicMonkey is another favourite of ours, we tend to use it on our desktop machines but there is also Android and Apple apps, we haven’t used the apps but if it’s as good as the desktop version then we can definitely recommend it.

Canva online photo editor and document designer3) We’re also big fans of Canva here in the office – anyone can become a designer – again it’s a very simple interface and has the option to create collages and it’s no surprise it’s available both in the iTunes store and Google Play.
 
Good luck to everyone and if you have any questions please do get in touch.

Planning in advance is always good advice

planning your outfit ahead with a selection of accessories is a real time saver....
Sophie Foulds | 26 February 2017 at 05:32 PM
Plan ahead tip!! :-)
Chloe | 26 February 2017 at 03:21 PM
I am like Mr Bean and wear the same outfits during the week, a self imposed uniform. Xx
Leanne Joy | 26 February 2017 at 01:33 PM
Planning ahead and taking a photo is a great tip as I always forget the accessories

Anthea Holloway | 23 February 2017 at 02:23 PM
Plan in advance is always a good tip to follow.
Mary Campbell | 22 February 2017 at 04:29 PM
The tip about wearing two outfits in the same week, but at opposing ends of the week, with a scarf, is genius. If you're stuck for new outfits and short of time, it's a lifesaver! :)
jade bremner | 20 February 2017 at 12:28 PM
Taking pictures of your outfits is such a good tip

My favourite tip is the one about changing your accessories.
Ema J Lowe | 14 February 2017 at 08:40 PM
to plan ahead for the week.
christina kennedy | 14 February 2017 at 02:54 PM
Setting time ahead is a great idea as I come home to a bedroom with clothes all over the floor everyday as I never know what to wear in the morning. Ideally I would do this but need a wardrobe that I can easily pick pieces that go together. I like all your outfits, wish I had your style actually
james wright | 14 February 2017 at 12:19 PM
changing your accessories
Sarah Steeples | 14 February 2017 at 12:04 PM
I love the tip to wear the same outfit at the opposite ends of the week and disguising it with a scarf. I will be doing this from now on!
leanne weir | 13 February 2017 at 07:43 PM
I like the bonus tip to change your accessories to go from day to night.
Kate L Jones | 13 February 2017 at 05:10 PM
I love scarves so it is handy to re wear a dress and change it up. It saves on the packing space for me too as I travel most weeks for work
adeinne tonner | 12 February 2017 at 06:45 PM
The tip that is my favourite is to change your accessories
Teresa Lee | 12 February 2017 at 06:32 PM
Step 1: Think about the week ahead
Angela Kelly | 12 February 2017 at 04:13 PM
I think the best tip is changing your accessories. I never seem to think of this.
Dawn F | 11 February 2017 at 02:51 PM
I like the 'take a change of shoes' tip. Very useful for sore feet and easier than having to change the whole outfit for different occasions.
Ann Paterson | 10 February 2017 at 07:00 PM
Planning ahead
Natalie White | 10 February 2017 at 12:56 PM
I like the bonus tip to change your accessories to go from day to night. It's definitely something I need to get better at!
Sarah Mackay | 09 February 2017 at 09:30 PM
Love the tip on changing your accessories
Soph H | 09 February 2017 at 07:46 PM
I think her tip about planning ahead is the best - totally relevant to me as I am rubbish at it!
Emma Gibson | 09 February 2017 at 06:13 PM
Changing up your accessories.
Cherry Edwards | 09 February 2017 at 05:53 PM
Planning your outfits for the week is a great tip because then you can just hang them all up in order with accessories hung on the hangers and no matter how early it is in the morning when you get dressed you just can't go wrong - well that's the theory anyway!
Alison Ellis | 09 February 2017 at 05:39 PM
I just grab the first things in the morning
Holly Gibson | 09 February 2017 at 05:37 PM
I like the idea of taking pictures of outfits so that I can actually remember what they look like on!
Farhana | 09 February 2017 at 05:09 PM
Wear a jean to make your dress casual
Janice | 09 February 2017 at 05:07 PM

Jennifer Haden | 08 February 2017 at 08:37 AM
I love her advice about thinking about your week ahead and what each day looks like x
A S,Edinburgh | 07 February 2017 at 11:54 PM
I think my favourite tip is planning ahead; I always find it makes life so much easier when I do that, even with things that feel like they shouldn't take much thought.
Char Keddy | 07 February 2017 at 07:45 PM
I always think about outfit planning on the weekend or at least the night before. No point trying to figure out clothing when I'm half asleep, lol!
Sinead ORourke | 07 February 2017 at 04:15 PM
I like wednesdays outfit.
pete c | 07 February 2017 at 01:12 PM
favourite tip : change your accessories
Cara Bemrose-Williams | 07 February 2017 at 09:49 AM
Planning your outfits out for the week is a great idea- I hate scrabbling around trying to find things in the morning! I'm on a limited maternity capsule wardrobe at the moment but anything that saves time in the morning is a win with me!
Helen Moulden | 07 February 2017 at 08:06 AM
I think it's thinking ahead and what your diary looks like. That would help my planning a lot!
