It’s funny how trainers suddenly became such a tried and tested fashion staple. Where were they before and how did we all fall out of love with ballerina pumps? That’s fashion for you. A metallic finish adds a bit of zing to your sporty footwear and glamour to casual looks. Any linen blend trousers like this on-trend khaki pair definitely need to go into any holiday packing you may be doing. This top is a much smarter take on the basic tee and is a good wardrobe investment piece – think worn with a tailored skirt for work and then with a pair of skinny jeans and heels for a night out. A skinny polka dot scarf adds that little extra something whilst this bright red cross-body bag leaves you handsfree – perfect for shopping the sales! Natalie X

Next time you’re looking for a dress for an evening event think about something chic and simple in a hot summer jewel shade that will take you from city event to summer evening chic and right through to the winter party season. It’s always about how you accessorise when it comes to reworking your dress into a number of different looks. Just because this Ghost dress is long and dramatic doesn’t mean it won’t double up for a summer evening outfit when on holiday. Your wedge is the perfect partner to all this drama and some bright coloured feathered earrings add a boho feel to things. Obviously you’ll need sunnies if you’re going to channel that Hollywood chic! Slip into sleek metallics and a chic black sandal for a black tie event. Simply add a faux-fur cover-up for winter time party looks . Natalie x

Just because you bought a jacket, bag or a jewel for an evening or occasion look doesn’t mean you can’t downscale it to daytime to upscale those casual outfits. Still with me?

But, if you’re looking to add that little extra something to an ultra casual jeans + tee + trainers look simply introduce an evening element. Like this jacket. Perfect! Natalie x

Hands up who got caught in the rain this morning… minus umbrella or pastel pink trench like this piece from M&S? If you’ve already got your capsule wardrobe investment trench,  by that I mean something chic, sleek and neutral in stone, navy or black for example, why not spice things up with one of these summer shades. It’s a fun but very practical trend update to wardrobes. When it’s not raining, wear loosely draped over dresses for an occasion look or style with skinny jeans and skate shoes for weekend chic. A bit of glitter never harmed a day outfit or two. Natalie x

There really are dresses that do everything and this is one of them. It’s the perfect blank canvas for you to colour in by day, night, holiday and work with a change of accessories. The soft pleats at the front of the dress are great for skimming over and disguising the tummy area and the tie detail heightens definition at the waist. An understated tan leather sandal will work your entire holiday wardrobe perfectly. Use earrings to add a pop of boho colour and texture. Glisten in gold and sparkly jewels for a sleek evening look. Switch denim jackets for sharply tailored tuxedo jackets for weekend-to-occasion dressing.  Natalie x
