Make it a frill with a spill when it comes to spring/summer dressing. It’s all about the one-shoulder dress with a bold ruffle detail, a perfect twist to take you from day-to-night, beach-to-bar. This seersucker style from J.Crew also comes in a sugary pink. Channel some of that retro style with a platform sandal and oversized sunnies. Step it down with metallic flat sandals or espadrilles and a pom-pom embellished straw tote. Natalie x

I’m ready for a winter wardrobe! Aren’t you? Ease yourselves into the weekend with some new season flavours. There’s a hint of gothic drama with a mix of Renaissance woman style for a/w and this black lace trim top is an easy way to step into this trend now. Opulent prints like broody florals and wild animal prints create a kaleidoscope of pattern…a leopard print bag is always a good place to start. We’ve seen every imaginable reincarnation of the gold Gucci sandal and River Island’s take on that designer lust-have adds the finishing touch to your looks. Natalie x

Blend your prints with some of the new season’s neutral offerings. Belted jackets are showing up all over the place. Whilst these are great for creating definition if you’re not in the mood to be cinched-in, or, you are after a 2-in-1 piece, simply ditch the belt and wear your jacket loose as an alternative. Neutrals are a great way to balance out pattern. Transition this little floral number from Oasis into a fabulous occasion look by styling with a tailored pencil skirt in the same pink shade and a pair of silver sandals. Natalie x

When Zara does a good bouclé jacket it’s worth snapping up pronto. This chic piece has just popped up in store and online and with it’s black bow detail (which you can wear loose and untied), the gold buttons and the bracelet length sleeves it’s the ideal casual to work to occasion piece. So many times women tell me they feel that when it comes to their casual looks they tend to err far to much on the side of casual and less on on the side of chic or cool. If this sounds like you a jacket like this will transform your wardrobe. On the school run? Popping out for a quick weekend shopping trip? Coffee with a friend on Sunday? Throw on this jacket – it  will add that extra edge to your low-key looks. It will also give that final polish to occasion and evening dressing. In fact for an evening of drama style this with a floor-sweeping skirt (J. Crew has some fabulous ones), bodysuit (see these cold-shoulder one at Topshop) and gold chandelier earrings (River Island). Natalie x
