wardrobe essentials

1. Invest in a blazer

The key piece

A lightweight blazer is so useful and suits every age and body shape – even petite figures. Softly tailored, flattering cream is a great foil for brights.

How to wear it

Rev it up with hot acid-coloured tops for  summer, or keep it cool with neutral tone-on-tone trousers or shorts. Pick a cut and length that flatters your body shape, and invest in the best you can afford.

Why it works

It transcends seasons and trends as it’s always in fashion. Work it with classic accessories and it will become your fashion mainstay.

2. Start with a chiffon shirt

The key piece

A bright chiffon shirt. You can’t have too many – they are roomy, comfy and uber-cool, plus they float over hips. Racy red is an easy colour to match with other shades in your wardrobe, and not too scarily ‘fashionable’.

How to wear it

Long over skinny pants or jeans for a casual mood, or tucked into tailored shorts or slim skirts for more of an office look.

Why it works

Every woman can wear one if the colour is right. A flowing chiffon shirt flatters both super curvy and petite women, and also instantly updates your wardrobe classics.

3. Pull it together with a pencil skirt

The key piece

The pencil skirt. It’s a fashion saviour and, in a cool neutral colour, it can make the switch from daytime street chic to night-time glam. Find an affordable piece, in soft stretch fabric, it will pull you in and define your waist- perfect for hourglass figures – to pull off an instantly stylish look for now.

How it works

Tucked in and layered up with confidence. Go for a collared shirt for a smart formal look, or loosely fitted blouses and Tees for weekend chic. You can even pair with a lightweight trench or cardi for extra cover.

Why it works

A perfectly fitted pencil skirt adds a touch of sophistication to any ensemble, and it has that timeless stamp of style that fits into everyone’s wardrobe with ease.

4. Impress with a dress

The key piece

The simple shift. Polished and immaculately cut, this classic dress says it all for ladylike ease and comfort! Why buy 10 things when you can rely on one? The right dress solves all your fashion dilemmas, is easy to wear and pack and looks sublime on long and leggy figures.

How to wear it

With lots of confidence – if you have the figure, flaunt it. Go for a style with soft drapes if you want a more forgiving line.

Why it works

It’s so easy to accessorise- all you need are sexy heels and modern statement jewellery. In this case, less is definitely more.
