So black became brown, which then turned to taupe but it’s time to move over… because modern women know it’s all about mint. Mix in a little camel or tan and turns out you’ve got the trend totally sussed.

nayna shareS HER expert tips on how to shop

It’s more important than ever to dress for your changing body. Getting your base right will smooth any lumps and bumps giving you a cleaner silhouette.

Take time out to try outfits at home and work out what suits you. Only buy something if it immediately makes you feel fantastic when you try it on.

We all have parts of our body we like and dislike. Celebrate the parts of your body you love and become clever at disguising the ones you don’t.

Be colour confident.  There’s no magic formula to finding colours that suit you - hold them up to your face and see what each one does for your complexion.

Fit is everything.  If it doesn’t fit right, or sit right, it won’t look right. If it’s comfortable then this will make you feel better and ultimately look better!

Try and invest in fabrics and yarns that are the best quality; you’ll still have them in your wardrobe for many years to come.

Choose accessories that co-ordinate with your favourite wardrobe pieces. Remember – a little goes a long way.   A statement pair of glasses are essential for me and making a statement with a signature ring or earrings gives the perfect finishing touch.

It’s not just about how you look, it’s about how you feel. Have a positive ‘cup half full’ approach to life and this will come across in the energy surrounding you.

EDVARD MUNCH: LOVE & ANGST

The Joseph Hotung Great Court Gallery, British Museum, Great Russell Street, London WC1B 3DG

11th April - 21st July 

Hands up, who hasn’t seen an Edvard Munch print in their student digs at one time or another?  His work appeals to radical sensibilities the world over.  Munch was the brilliant bohemian artist famed for his instability, intense love affairs and of course, his most celebrated painting The Scream.

He created four originals in paint and pastels, two were mysteriously stolen, then just as mysteriously found and a rare original lithograph provides the focus of this extraordinary new exhibition which majors on his near obsession with print making. 

Munch pioneered the growing demand for graphic art prints, wanting his work to become available to the masses which it was eventually. In that, he was a truly modern man of his generation. His innovative prints reflected his progressive ideas and the sweeping changes of society at that time.

This rare print along with 50 others on loan from the Munch Museum in Norway, plus memorabilia from his travels through Europe will reveal a little about the man behind the deep melancholia.  From ‘love to angst’ says it all in the exhibition’s title, taking in grief and anxiety along the way. Though he spent years in and out of sanatoriums, he managed to amass an amazing body of astonishing work.

Expect images of discombobulated body parts in true Munch style and some haunting self portraits but The Scream alone makes this THE art show not to be missed. 

All that soul searching can’t have done him too much long term harm, as he managed to live until the age of 81 , dying in 1944.
