Shelley from Dotti loves helping people find the perfect piece for their everyday look or special occasion. We spoke to Shelley to learn some of her amazing fashion tips and find out a little more about her and her style.
Working in fashion, Shelley’s favourite styling tip is all about wearing what you love. “Wear what makes you happy. The most important person to please is yourself. If you love how you look, you will exude confidence!”
Along with gorgeous clothing, Dotti also have a range of accessories. When she needs to bring an outfit to life, Shelley’s go-to accessories include a scarf, and something you can wear for free. “A 500-megawatt smile! Aside from that, a scarf can lift any outfit with a pop of colour.”
Dotti stocks a range of on-trend, quality clothing, in an array of styles and colours. So, what would Shelley choose if she could only wear one outfit for from the store the rest of her life?
“Our Harper jeans in any colour! These jeans were designed for comfort. I’d pair them with our long-line Arizona cardi which is toasty warm and has pockets (OMG pockets!), and one of our basic Turn Back Tees to complete the outfit. It’s a style and comfort power punch!”
When it comes to her favourite occasion to get dressed up for, Shelley thinks any day is reason enough to feel fancy! “Your life is an event every day. Dress every day with the intention to SLAY!” We love this vibe!
Fashion trends come and go, and Shelley definitely welcomes some more than others! We asked her to name a trend that she loves and one that she loathes. “I live for long-line cardigans, dressy or casual! I loathe low-rider jeans. For me personally, I need ‘muffin-control’ rise in my jeans!” We all need a bit of that sometimes.
There’s a lot to like about fashion, but what Shelley loves the most is how it always comes back to its beginnings. “Fashion never really strays too far from past successes; it just slightly alters or embellishes them. For example, our Dotti staples, our biker and denim jackets, they’ve been in fashion since the 1950s. They’re not going away; they’re just being slightly tweaked each new season.”
So, the next time you’re in need of a stunning outfit for a special occasion, or just want to level-up your everyday style, make sure you visit Dotti and say hello to Shelley and the team. They’ll have you strutting out of the store with gorgeous new clothes and newfound confidence!
