STAR STYLE: Get Liz Hurley’s look on the high street

Liz Hurley really knows how to work a pair of jeans. They’ve become as much a part of her style staple as those gorgeous floor sweeping, thigh flashing Versace gowns she pulls off with style aplomb. It’s all very Dressipi – once you have worked out what shapes suit you and developed your own inimitable style you’ll find yourself with a set of 24/7 looks and outfits that work a dream in a flash. Lightweight tweeds and barely there bouclés have become the go-to fabric of jackets and tailoring. From single breasted boxy-cuts to figure-sculpting biker styles we’ve often spoken about the multi-tasking nature of this new fashion friend the tweed/bouclé jacket. We have the likes of Isabel Marant and Iro to thank for this casual modern take on what is really an entry level piece to the ultimate dream of owning a Chanel jacket. This piece really does turn a basic tee (ours is from Mango) and pair of jeans (Topshop) look into a more polished fashion look. A chic black court (Pull & Bear), multi-tasking tote (Zara) and oversized sunglasses (Mango) complete the look. Natalie x

1. Warehouse jacket £36.80:- This piece is actually on sale on the John Lewis website so it’s a bit of a bargain. The low v-neck  means it is perfect for those looking to break up broad shoulders as well as complementing a larger bust. What’s great about this piece is that it almost acts like  cardigan and can be worn open layered over your tee:

2.  BHS round neck jacket £38:- This is more of a paired down classic take on the edgier styles out there at the moment. A high round neck draws the eye up and is a great feature for balancing out your shoulder-to-hip proportions. This piece has a stylish 3/4 length sleeve and will be the perfect partner to a tailored work shift or figure-sculpting pencil skirt:

3.  French Connection boxy jacket £140:- This is a much more structure, square cut take on the style and is very much inspired by the shapes that dominated the autumn/winter catwalks. It adds flattering volume up-tp but if your silhouette  needs a shapely dose of curves sculpted into it it is better to go for a more tailored/fitted style:
