These high street hits will work double time through your day to night wardrobe. A tuxedo stripe black trouser plus cosy grey cashmere jumper and black courts update a classic work look. Switch to a waist-enhancing black top with lace detail to upscale for evening. These H&M mid-heel metallic courts and a shimmery detail bag will finish off your evening look. Style with jeans and a chunky knit come the weekend. Natalie x

Jacquard, brocade, velvet… textures fit for a queen and a perfect opulent trend for the festive season ahead. Make your party dresses work double time with jackets and accessories you might already own. If you snapped up a mannish velvet blazer, not only will it dress up jeans and blouses but it also adds a chic tailored finish to this dress. Throw in some extra sparkle with black glittery platform shoes and a mini gold bag. For party number two go for a sleek vintage-chic look with a faux-fur cover-up and delicate strappy metallic sandals. Picking up on the warm wintry tones of the dress finish off with a contrast textured day-to-night clutch. Natalie x

Warm and fuzzy – it’s one of the hot to trot catwalk trends that you’ll be snuggling up in this season. Seems like designers have been taking inspiration from Ice Age 1, 2 and 3. Kate Moss owns the leopard print fur coat look hands down. She’s often papped in her signature vintage piece. You can own the look too. The whole faux fur and leopard combination oozes retro glamour. This coat will work around the clock from cosy and casual looks to vamp-it up cocktail hour stunners. You simply have to snap up a pussy-bow blouse. It’s all part of the reworked 70s boho mood as well as the miix-and-match granny chic trend. There are enough v-neck pussy bow necklines to happily accommodate those shapes that are not suited to a high neckline. You can just as easily snap up an on-trend black skinny scarf (Zara has perfect ones) and tie it at the neck of your favourite white shirt for the same effect. Put some glitz into your daytime footwear – it’s very 80’s which is very now. Which way will you go…haute or high? Natalie x

If you’ve spent all summer honing and toning and tanning your limbs – and even if you haven’t – strategically placed pleats and splits are here to give a subtle flash of flesh without giving the game away. These split front skirts are a chic way to shake things up on the work wardrobe front (think tucked in fitted shirt plus high heel courts) or to go for a paired back evening look like here. Use the array of fabulous texture, pattern and bling this a/w season to dress things up. These 24/7 glitzy platform sandals are a must-have wardrobe addition if you are looking for a quick-fix new season update and a faux-fur clutch is the perfect over-the-top style statement. Natalie x

150224-star-style-Lea-SeydouX-RT-WIDE Ahhh the fabulous glamour of 007 and the Bond girls. From iconic bikini’s to red-carpet dresses, you simply have to love it. If by now you have seen the trailer for the new Bond movie Spectre, you would have seen French actress Lea Seydoux dazzling in a slinky evening gown that has a true old-world glamour feel to it. You can snap up the exact piece because it is by Ghost. If you want the exact same colour you can buy it to order from the Ghost website. Otherwise have a look at the John Lewis stock here on Dressipi: Ghost Salma dress £225. Oh Mr Bond! Natalie x


If by now you have not noticed, there has been a huge retro revival with designers taking inspiration from the heady 60’s. Well, why not! From Saint Laurent to Tophsop you can’t move for glittery Mary Janes and go-go boots. Perfect for the party season or upscaling a casual look. Skirts have swung two ways, from full and voluminous midi-lengths to cute and snappy A-lines in leg revealing mini lengths. Go for a luscious deep tone in velvet or have a bit of fun with these play-on-the-eye prints. Style with a fitted roll-neck jumper, heap on coloured faux-fur, add a lot of glitter .. and go-go.
