4 ways to style up older wardrobe essentials
Pretty in pleats
Want to work your pleated skirt in a new way? Switch up your formal shirt for graphic tee and a blazer. Make it your own with a figure-flattering detailed belt.
To add a little twist to classic monochrome tailoring, luxe up simple black trousers with separates and shoes in tonal hues. Slip on an oversized for that fashion-forward polish.
Work one colour from top to toe, and up the chic factor with statement court heels in a similar hue.
