A dress that’s the perfect blank canvas is a great investment piece for your wardrobe. This navy blue fit-and-flare update on the shirt dress can take you from a weekend lunch (white skate shoes or a tan wedge) to a wedding guest or evening out look. Play around with your accessories.

Make more than one statement with this power pairing of key accessories and a chic little black dress. An animal print heel is a great wardrobe highlight piece.

The great thing about a floral print is that you can take your style from day to night. Wear this must-have Whistles dress with a pair of white trainers and a cross-body bag for the perfect weekend look with friends. If it’s still cold style with a black ankle boot and opaques.

Embroidery and appliqué are livening up our must-have wardrobe basics, from bright floral needlepoint on shoes and biker jackets to cute and cheeky patchwork appliqué on denim and outerwear. These details give a softer edge to tougher pieces. It’s like wearing an emoji. Whilst admittedly this Alice + Olivia parka costs a bomb I couldn’t resist showing it to you. You can achieve the same effect with your own parka – just add badges £6! But, you’ll also find some fabulous pieces on the high street like this badge detail coat from V by Very £60. They have a longer style too at £70. River Island has gone wild with floral embroidery, and all those blooms give a pretty blush to this khaki coat £48.

The details don’t stop here. Criss-cross ties, ribbons, corsets, you name it…all the pieces to give a cheeky twist to your favourite investment cashmere jumpers. Looking to the high street I am still on Zara’s wish list for these tie-front jumpers both in black £25.99 and a breton stripe. Go on, join me. I first saw these boots on thelondoner.com and that’s why they are here now – the perfect weekend style. Natalie x

Gorgeous ginghams have been given a contemporary spin making them the perfect print to update your looks. For this retro pattern revival think on-trend ruffle details, boxy top shapes, cut-out-shoulders and cheeky cropped lengths. Balance out the flounce and flair of tech skirt with paired back tees and sturdy denims. A back-to-the-80’s metallics stiletto vamps things up, whilst a skate shoe or trainer will add that street style cool. Use your bag to give a hot pop of red…and a slick of lipstick too. Natalie x

2017-01-23-1dress-2ways-rtIt’s been a while since we paid any attention to the humble ballerina what with sports luxe trainers, tie-around-the-ankle ghillies and cool kid skate shoes. Somewhere on the fashion agenda these last few months, the ballerina suddenly reappeared. It’s the perfect dress-down piece to a dress-up look. Especially if it comes in an animal print or a cool metallic. This Reiss dress ticks all the right evening and occasion boxes. Add a neutral leather tote and must-have ballerina and it’ll double for day too. Talking of shoes, there is quite a sale going on at The Outnet and these Nicholas Kirkwood heels are a great investment. What are you waiting for? Natalie x
