Ladies That Lunch

For a chilled summer’s day out with the ladies, go for a chic look that’s on-trend without looking too formal. A wear-me-anywhere dress is the ultimate answer. Choose a simple, loose tunic with new age prints to add some catwalk clout. Keep accessories minimal for an easy laid back feel.

Go Classic

For a no-fuss go-anywhere look, start with skinny jeans in simple colours with minimal details. Go for stretchy, hold-you-in fabric in dark tones for an instantly slimmer silhouette. Add a luxe blazer and you’ve got that classic look nailed.

Party Perfect

For a night out on the town where you want to look smart but not overly dressed, an LBD will be your go-to. Opt for a simple cut that can be styled up or down with cover-ups and accessories. Add a statement embellished neck piece for a glamourous occasion or layers of long chains for a chic evening out. This dress is as versatile as it gets.
