What Not to Wear UK is a television show that follows fashion gurus, Susannah Constantine and Trinny Woodall, as they provide fashion and style advice to people who are in dire need of a wardrobe overhaul. The show originally aired in 2001, and was a spinoff of the US version, which also bears the same name.

Each episode of the show starts off with a brief introduction of the person who needs a fashion makeover. The person is then secretly filmed going about their daily routine, while Susannah and Trinny watch it together, pointing out all the areas where they could improve their style.

The show's hosts then appear in the person's home, unannounced, and surprises them with the news that they have been selected for a "fashion intervention". They take them through their wardrobe, assessing their style and giving advice on how to dress for their body shape, skin tone, and lifestyle.

Throughout the show, Susannah and Trinny share their vast knowledge of fashion, providing tips on how to make the most of the clothes you have, and how to choose the right clothes for different occasions.

One of the main features of the show is the "3-2-1" rule, which dictates that every person should have three basics, two statement pieces, and one knockout item in their wardrobe. The hosts explain how to choose these items, and where to find them.

Another characteristic of the show is the brutal honesty of Susannah and Trinny. They are not afraid to tell people when they have bad fashion taste, and offer them constructive criticism on how to improve their style. They often challenge people to step out of their comfort zones, and try new styles and looks that they would never have considered before.

The show also features a fashion makeover segment, where the person is taken on a shopping trip to find new clothes that will complement their body shape and personal style. Susannah and Trinny show them how to shop effectively, how to mix and match different items, and how to accessorize outfits to make them pop.

Overall, the show is about empowering people to feel confident and comfortable in their own skin. Susannah and Trinny help people to find their own style and express themselves through fashion. The show is a great source of inspiration and advice for anyone looking to revamp their wardrobe and up their fashion game.

What Not to Wear UK is a series that is currently running and has 4 seasons (21 episodes). The series first aired on September 11, 2002.
