2017-03-03-one-look-rtChunky knits are just what the weather ordered this weekend. Something cosy but perfectly chic. We love this hint of a breton stripe knit from M&S. Style with slim or straight leg jeans to complement the volume. There’s a 60’s style feel to these black flats from Topshop and they’ll also work a dream come next winter too with a little denim mini skirt, opaque tights and a faux-fur cropped jacket. Speaking of chunky knits you might also like this pink striped piece from Miss Selfridge £28, or this grey cable knit by Fat Face £25Natalie x

Before you relegate your favourite hoody or sweat top to gym gear or general lounging about the house gear…stop. Upscale one of athleisure’s favourite pieces with a bit of tailoring. This longer line pinstripe jacket from H&M has a borrowed-from-the-boys feel. Whilst it is tailored it has more of a roomier fit – perfect for throwing over a bulkier top. Leave the hood to drape over the collar at the back. Take inspiration from all things Chanel with this jewelled tweed trainer-skate shoe hybrid. They give a glitzy girly spin to this perfect weekend look. Natalie x

Those statement sleeves that we saw for autumn/winter are here to stay. There’s a slight twist and variation – think a little more structured and a little less frilly – but overall it’s still all about the cuff. A basic jersey stripe t-shirt dress gets a style make-over with this new detail. Balance out the drama with paired back trainers and add use a cross-body bag to bring colour into the mix. Natalie x

Give your every day pieces a style rethink. Basics are good as your core wardrobe foundations, but every now and then you need a little style pick me up without going top-to-toe trend heavy.
