As a celebrity stylist, makeup artist and just generally stylish human being, Jules Sebastian knows fashion.
But her best fashion hack – the one rule she swears by when it comes to her wardrobe – actually isn’t hers.
It came from husband (and singer) Guy Sebastian.
“Just don’t have crap in your wardrobe. If you don’t have the bohemian maxi skirt that you loved when you where 17 years old but would never wear now, you won’t wear it,” she told Mamamia, ahead of her upcoming styling workshop at Westfield Penrith for Westfield Fashion Weekend.
“I’m constantly clearing out my wardrobe and I’m pretty brutal. I just think ‘I haven’t worn this in ages’ or ‘I don’t know what I was thinking’ and get rid of it. Keep only the things you’ll actually wear, it makes it so much easier.”
Simple yet effective – and it’s all thanks to Guy Sebastian.
“You know where I learnt that? From my husband. He was just like ‘Then don’t have it’,” she says.
“How many times do you keep something forever even if you never intend of wearing it or telling yourself ‘Maybe, maybe one day’. Just don’t.”

The stylist’s prediction for the top Autumn/Winter trends hitting stores are florals, frills and lace.
“I think the colour is key to give these typically spring trends a winter feel. Go for tones like burgundy, olive green, brown or natural earth tones and pair with leather in the form of pants, skirt, jacket or boots,” she says.
Sebastian has been with husband Guy for 17 years and it’s not just excellent fashion advice that has made their relationship a successful one.
