This is another one of those perfect dress-up, dress-down versatile pieces that will really go the extra fashion mile. The criss-cross back detail and the contrast floral patterns give this look edge. Vamp things up with a black sandal and sparkly clutch, or just add trainers and a pair of Ray-Bans for some daytime cool. Natalie x
Tear yourself away from the grey knits (even though we love them) and easy to wear denims with an indulgent floral print of the new season. Pile on the patterns with this lust-have leather bag from Mango (which feels very Gucci!). Steely sunglasses and run-around-flats take ladylike down a casual notch or too. Style with an oversized denim jacket or fitted biker. You know the style ropes by now – a slinky metallic sandal or killer courts make this just the outfit for any occasion. Don’t forget the clutch and a fabulous pair of earrings. Natalie x

QUESTION: I have bought this River Island dress attached (not quite that short on me – I’m only 5,5) and was wondering what I can wear with it for a baby shower dinner and a family BBQ. I’d probably wear tights with it as its getting quite cold! Looking for a jacket (it’s got flared arms) / shoes / jewellery / bag – budget is £40.
ANSWER: Really glad you’ve got a great dress to wear, and we are sure we can find some great items to go with it.
1. Mango, Coat now £69.99:- Try this trench for size, in a less restrictive fit, this lightweight coat means you can throw it on over most things and give your look a classic style update. A little over budget but we’ve saved on other items so if it works for you go for it!
2. ASOS, Shoes £38:- These catwalk inspired ankle strap shoes are great for your swing dress, and gives your look a preppy chic feel. Opt for the black pair if you decide to wear tights, or the snake print if you decide to go bare legged.
3. ASOS, Bangle £8:- This bangle is just the perfect style to accessorise your look. This piece is just enough for your occasion worthy outfit without too much bling.
4.ASOS, Earrings £6.99:- Add these hoops for a minimal but feminine accessory.
5. Warehouse, Bag £28:- A casual clutch always works for these kind of events, not too dressy and workable for carrying a few more items. Use the strap when your juggling drinks and baby presents! SarahA x
