PICK AND MIX: One dress, any which temperamental weather way

Posted on: June 16, 2015

pick-n-mix-150616-RT-toSQv2Everything’s a little temperamental at the moment and by that I mean the”weather”. So when things are temperamental the best thing to do is give yourself choices. Because things can blow hot and cold. This is where layering up is always a great style option. In the grand scheme of things layering up when it comes to dressing really just means investing in a great go-with- everything cardigan. Something you can slip under a jacket and over a dress. It will carry you through the day with all that on-off hot-cold situation that is going on at the moment. It will dress down a dress that you would otherwise have thought is something just for a smarter occasion. Nothing is ever really just for smarter occasions (unless it’s a ballgown or an ultra-bling number) because you can always knits to tone things down. Shoe wise, you’ll need something closed and if you want a welcome break and modern update from the run-around-ballerina then these ghillies (that’s what they are called) are the shoe of the season all thanks to the likes of Isabel Marant. They are a little high maintenance thanks to the ankle straps but the high street has some fabulous numbers so you can give them a whirl. Use your clutch bag by day especially if it something a little less structured and has a shoulder strap. And there you have it – you’ll be prepared for all temperamental hot-and-cold eventualities in the course of 24hrs. Natalie x
