I am delighted to be writing our first-ever Hot Tips. For this special feature, a hand-picked Mustcard entrepreneur will be letting us into a few of their secrets, as well as, teaching us how to make the most of the tricks of the trade. Each and every guru will offer the perfect mix of tips and inspiration that will have you brimming with ideas for you all to use at home. This series is a chance to meet the people behind the concept and discover their creativity. A unique opportunity to bring The Mustcard to life; I hope many of you enjoy it and it carries on to inspire you during your general day-to-day goings-on.

The first in the series will see us talking to a local expert about fashion trends for AW19 and how to keep your wardrobe and style current without breaking the bank.

Charlie Elmy-Britton is a professional personal stylist that is based in the south of England and well known for bringing out one’s style in the very best way. She isn’t one to dictate – instead you’re more likely to witness her nurturing clients to find their very own style that sits within and generally making them all look and feel fantastic. However, what I really love about her and her work is her attention to detail. It’s second to none!

Whilst most of us are grasping onto the summer with both hands, Charlie has already ditched the romantic summer palette of lavender tones and sweet lilac and replaced it with a much punchier wardrobe, fit for autumn.

Of course, she’s layering her classic autumn staples during this transitional period so that she doesn’t find herself freezing first thing in the morning or sweltering at the 3.30 school pick-up.  And she’s definitely not afraid to get her money’s worth from some of her more muted summer pieces by holding on to them for a little longer and mixing them up with some unequivocal AW19 trends. Shaking up a corduroy mini, chic pleated or even a slip skirt left over from the summer with hefty knitwear, minimalist chunky footwear or even some on-trend tights that show a little gratitude to the seventies bourgeoisie. And the great news for this autumn is we are set to be as BIG on skirts as we were during the sunshine months.

Hot tips for a season that is EXTRA bigger, bolder and braver.


We are totally channelling the 70’s – think chunky knits, fringing, longer hem lengths and slouchy boots.


Are all about making a statement and massively supersized – even the clutch!


The three main colours seen on the catwalk that have now infiltrated into designer and high street shops are Burgundy, Olive and Copper. It’s everywhere and couldn’t be better for autumn.


The waist belt is here to stay. Over dresses and knits.


Whether an evening dress or a day shirt the puff sleeve is the ultimate autumn/winter 19 style statement.
