2016-05-25-one-look-RTThese are great in-between weather pieces and capsule wardrobe basic must-haves. Zara has some good lightweight jackets in store now and a 3/4 length sleeve loosens things up a bit for summer outfits. A soft grey top will tie in separates perfectly whether printed, plain or ultra bright, just add heels and chandelier earrings to take this top and these trousers to dinner. Always remember that you can use your accessories to add prints and colours to any look. Natalie x

That summery atmosphere is filtering into the air, we’ve got the Chelsea Flower Show in full swing, an upcoming long weekend and a bit of sunshine. What better way to soak up this mood than in a bright coloured dress that channels all the glamour of The Talented Mr Ripley with it’s waist-cinching tie detail and romantic full skirt. It’s the perfect dress-up or dress-down number. Natalie x

Where would we be without our basic white shirts? Remember this humble wardrobe staple especially now that the sunshine is kicking in. Style (untucked) over a pair of ankle length denims. Vamp up with a slinky heel and add a pop of red with this sumptuous leather bag. Perfect for a smart-casual office look or weekend brunch. Natalie x

2016-05-18-one-look-RTWe haven’t given the denim skirt a look in for a while. Somewhere in your wardrobes you might have one from the last few seasons when this piece from A-line to pencil styles was one of the key wardrobe musts. Give your skirts a new season make-over. All it takes is a classic shoe style in an on-trend print for a bit of chic fashion fun. Tie your look together with a simple wardrobe basic: a t-shirt in a base tone (think black, greys, whites, navy, stone) and layer over a textured jacket. A black biker jacket would also look great here. Don’t forget to add that touch of daytime glamour with a statement accessory. Natalie x

Have a look in your wardrobes. Is there a favourite shift dress – printed or not- that you love to wear to work or in the evening? Give it an occasion refresher with some of summer’s must-have accessories for an every day look. Espadrilles are everywhere from wedge sandals to flatform style trainers. I saw the pale pink version of these navy Superga’s on Snapchat and instantly fell in love. They’ll dress down a fabulous print shift but still keep you looking chic. Blend in a  pale pink leather bag for a touch of colour. This one is from COS and they have some great low key but luxe leather styles in store now. Cover-up in a simple capsule wardrobe basic – the denim jacket and add a touch of bling. Natalie x

Last night I went to a fashion launch at Browns. It was done in conjunction with Gucci and every woman in the store was wafting about in a glorious array of Gucci sunshines colours and wild prints. It made me want to go to Italy and dress head to toe in Gucci prints eating almond granita with a hint of lemon. Failing that, now is a good time to introduce a print and summery colour to your wardrobes to vamp things up. This camisole top from Warehouse has a gorgeous pattern that makes florals look more painterly and less prim. Turbo boost this summery vibe with a bolt of yellow. Platforms are all the rage this season and they will balance out this cropped jeans length perfectly. Now you’re sunshine ready…Natalie x

Another day another a wedding. Looking for that little something extra when it comes to dressing up in style for spring occasions? Try this Reiss dress with its elegantly retro Jackie O’ style neckline and a flattering fit-and-flare cut. This style creates the illusion of a defined waist. Blend in soft pinks and rose gold touches to make those green-blue sea shades pop. Natalie x
