“Every woman should have one black dress, a fabulous pair of shoes and bag”

Carlos Martins is a devoted stylist at Styling Up. His style is mainly casual chic and he dreams of styling Evan Rachel Wood and Jonathan Myers.

He studied fashion in 2000 but his professional path took him to interior design. He has been an interior designer for over 6 years, but he kept dreaming of becoming a fashion stylist and he worked in theaters and contests as a wardrobe stylist ... he loves combining colors, fabrics, textures, and  he’s an art and design lover.
Carlos loves everything that is edgy and chic. He started working at Styling Up right from the beginning and in our website he has already styled hundreds of awesome outfits. You can find style recommendations from Carlos in our style shop. Get to know this stylist a little better in the interview below.

How and when did you start in the fashion styling career? Tell us your story.

As a fashion designer I worked at some projects in the area like wardrobe for characters in theater and contests. I also work as an Interior Designer at BoConcept. I made some interior projects and others like commercial stands at Lisbon Fashion Week.  Right now,AAAARight now, Rightcss  I´m collaborating with Styling Up at big scale, customizing outfits for all kind of clients and I’m also working at a worldwide fashion brand, very known for its casual and luxurious pieces, as a consultant.

What does fashion mean to you?

Well... for me Fashion is like a statement of art. It’s a large step for someone to become unique and singular!

What are your favorite brands & designers? Why?

My favorite designers are Marc Jacobs, Tom Ford, Dolce&Gabbana , Alexander Wang and so many others, because they all have an unique vision about concept and style. Besides of fashion, I also love other visual arts like design, sculpture, and so on.

Pepe Jeans Dress

How would you define your personal style?

My personal style is a mix of concepts and brands… so, mainly, I define my personal style as trendy. I’m always looking forward for trends and trying to discover new ways to approach my kind of look and style. Like every other person, some days I feel like I need to conquer the world with a new vision or statement, and on some other days I just get on a more casual and discreet mood. This is why I say that my style is my own statement… I follow my own rules, concept and style.

If you could pick 3 fashion must-haves that every woman should own, what would they be?

Funny, this is the old question that anyone wants to know an answer for...  It really depends because every woman is different, but I think that every woman should have one black dress, it doesn’t matter if it’s simple because you can style it up with accessories; a fabulous pair of shoes and bag… This always works and regarding the last two (shoes and bag) it really makes sense that you pay for quality (eg: a pair of Louboutin).

Which season do you prefer to style for: Autumn/Winter or Spring/Summer?

I love styling for the end of summer’s season, when everyone is relaxed, and thinking about the sun, the beach, parties and romance… everything is going on smoothly and perfectly and we can take some fashion risks with colors and patterns and mix all that.

All in One Jersey Jumpsuit, Diesel

Of the clothes you recommend in Styling Up's website, which is your favorite for this Autumn/Winter season?

Actually, I love several outfits for different reasons: This dress from Pepe Jeans, though it’s casual, I think it makes a beauty statement; This Jumpsuit from Diesel is very trendy and sophisticated and I think that this color is great for this season and I think it’s awesome to wear to a party or cocktail; This pleated dress from Missguided is great for someone who wants to be unique and make a statement wearing a more bright color… I also find the color very refreshing.

 If you could be a fashion stylist to one person, dead or alive, who would it be?

Probably Evan Rachel Wood and Jonathan Myers. Both are young and have a peculiar attitude. They also represent so many things I enjoy, like for example indie movies, music, art and they both also rock at big parties. I would love to create their next style.

What do you think about fashion blogs and magazines? Which ones do you check out regularly?

I love both fashion blogs and magazines, because we can learn so much about fashion, designers and what will be trending next season. Since everyone has different ways of looking at fashion, it’s great to read about different perspectives and discuss it.
The blogs I check up frequently are the following: The Sartorialist, The Style Examiner; Alfaiate Lisboeta, and so many others. As for magazines, I recommend: Dazed and Confused, Kaltblut Magazine, Dsection Mag and V Magazine.

What's my body type?

Many of you have already asked this question over and over again. And we heard you :) . As you probably already know, Styling Up is a website that provides a free online fashion styling service to all women. After registering in our website, users will only find clothes that fit their size and flatter their body type. So, in our website we already know our users body shape, but we never shared that information with them, so they didn't know their body type.

Now, users and non users may calculate their body shape in our body shape calculator page, just by entering their bust, waist and hip measurements, in inches or cm. After clicking in "calculate my body type" button, you'll be redirected to your body shape.

We consider 6 body shapes: Hourglass, Pear, Inverted Triangle, Diamond, Oval (or Apple) and Straight (or Rectangle). Each body type has its own characteristics and, to dress proportionally and to create the illusion of an hourglass shape (if you don't have it already), you should really know what's your body type.

For example, if your body shape is Inverted Triangle, in other words, that means that your bust and shoulders are broader than your hips. To create the right proportions, tou should look for bottoms that balance your lower haf with your uper half, like full or A-line skirts or wide legs / boot cut trousers. This is just an example of how knowing your body type can really help you feel better about your body and help you embrace your body type and feel more confident about yourself. No matter what size you wear.

Our body shape calculator lets you easily calculate your body type, just by entering your bust, waist and hip measurements
In our body type calculator page (click on the image above) you'll not only be able to find out what's your body shape, but you'll also have access to a tips page especially dedicated to your body shape. You'll find some tops and bottoms recommendations and also some pictures of celebrities that have the same body shape as you. Most importantly, you'll also see some of the clothes recommendations of our fashion stylists, especially for your body type.

So, what are you waiting for? Take your bust, waist and hip measurements and go find out what's your body type, and take a peek at some of the clothes recommended by our stylists.

See you there! x)

“For me fashion has something to do with breathing”

Raquel Lança is a passionate fashion stylist that has been working with Styling Up right from the beginning. She's also a daily blogger at her own blog, Clínica de Estilo.

Though she first graduated in Tourism and worked as a travel agent for several years, her true passion was always related to fashion and style, and she always knew that it was her dream to become a fashion stylist.

She fought to pursue her dream and she did it, and now Raquel works full time as a fashion stylist. For her, fashion “has something to do with breathing”, and she says that like it or not, style is always your first impression ticket. Check out her interview and get to know her a little better. You can also find style recommendations from Raquel in Styling Up’s style shop.

How and when did you start being a fashion stylist? Tell us your story.

I remember that, since at a very young age that I love fashion. Back then it was very hard to do something besides being a fashion designer. Since I didn’t actually had any drawing skills to become a fashion designer, my hobby was to style everyone, not only members of the family, but also friends. Every time there an important event was coming, I was called to help.
I used to work as a travel agent, and I did it for 12 years, but since I was very unhappy at that job, I decided to take a graduation in 2010 as a fashion advisor to fulfill my big passion! And a new life started…

What are you currently working on?

I mainly work with real people and help them when they’re going to a big event. I also help people in creating wardrobes for themselves, or just help cleaning their wardrobes, by choosing the clothes that best fit their style, body type, quality, etc.
I also dedicate myself, every day, to my fashion and style blog, called Clínica de Estilo. And that also requires much dedication and time.

What does fashion mean to you?

Well I guess it has something to do with breathing... I cannot live without it!

What are your favorite brands & designers?

My favorite brands are Balenciaga, Pucci, Valentino, Helmut Lang, Zanotti, Manolo Blahnick, Aquazurra, Zac Posen and Balmain. They are all very different in style, but I guess that’s also a personal characteristic of mine, because I can’t identify myself with just one style.
Like most women, shoes are my true love so I’m always seeking new brands and new designer shoes.

 How would you define your personal style?

I am a very eclectic person and I don’t have a specific style. Each day, I choose what I’m wearing, based on my humor, where I’m going and what I’m doing. I really like to dress  according to the situation, and when I feel I’m not matching my very own wardrobe expectations, I’ll keep thinking that I should be wearing a different outfit… just like a lunatic!!! :)

 If you could pick 3 fashion must-haves that every woman should own, what would they be?

I think that all women’s wardrobe should have are a fabulous trench coat, a pair of dark blue jeans and a simple white shirt.

What was your greatest challenge as a fashion stylist, and how did you solve it?

The greater challenge as a fashion stylist is always when someone really likes a piece of clothing, that we already know that’s not good for their figure. This does happen often. What I usually do is: I ask them to try that piece of clothing on, and then I ask them to try another one that I think is most flattering for their body type, to see if we can reach an agreement. If that trick doesn`t work, I’ll try to negotiate later with another piece.

What’s that great fashion tip that you can share with us?

Be yourself, don`t imitate others! Style is a very personal matter, because it tells people who you are. There’s usually just one opportunity to make a good first impression, and everyone should always look at their best.

Which season do you prefer to style for: Autumn/Winter or Spring/Summer?

I prefer Autumn/Winter mainly because there are lots of accessories to choose from, like gloves, rain-coats, hats, scarves, etc.
But I also love the Spring/Summer Season because of the sandals… and I love sandals!

Wet Look Leggings- Miss Sixty

Of the outfits you recommend in Styling Up's website, which is your favorite for this Autumn/Winter season?

For me these Wet Look Leggings from Miss Sixty (on the left) are a statement for this Season. With these, you can create outfits for work, leisure or evening… they just have to be styled perfectly. They’ll look great with faux fur, a white shirt or a big jumper. I believe they’re a great investment for this Autumn/Winter Season!

What do you think about fashion blogs and magazines? Which ones do you check out regularly? 

I think fashion blogs are great because we can get all the information/news we need at a click distance. The only aspect that I find negative is that most of them only focus on trends and nothing more… and the common reader, when reads that, thinks that those trends are good for them and that may not be true, because we all have different body types and styles. Not all trends suit our body type and style!  I usually check out a lot of fashion blogs daily, but they’re based on different countries like Brazil, Spain, Italy and, of course, Portugal. I also buy “Harpers Bazaar” and “Vogue” every month.

What would you say to all those youngsters who want to start a styling career. Any advice?

Be prepared to work very hard every day! And be humble to learn from others.
