An ivory blazer or tuxedo jacket is a fabulous weekend-to-wedding-guest piece. Shape up denim looks with a bit of sharp tailoring and add a coloured or print flat to this monochrome look. Natalie x

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. Use it to add an element of interest to a casual jeans and basic tee look, or to vamp up a sleek day-to-night lbd. You can do the same with a statement clutch and pair of lust-have drop earrings.

At the autumn/winter collections in Paris this week one of the biggest trends to emerge is the “no rules” approach when it comes to day or night dressing. It’s glamour all the way with heavily embellished or opulently patterned floor sweeping evening dresses being styled with fur trimmed slides or the shoe of the season a flat black leather ankle boot, preferably a lace-up or military style. Closer to home have a look at some of your favourite party pieces and see if you can give them a dress-down spin with a casual trainer. Look for oversized evening clutches in leather or suede for that bit of edge. Natalie x

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

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

With the thought of the Oscars on the horizon, here is a trick all the red carpet stylists use when styling their celebrity clients. It’s the barely-there sandal, which is exactly what its name means. In either black (thanks Saint Laurent) or nude or metallic, this simple sandal style with a strap at the ankle and over the bridge of the foot has the effect of elongating legs. Have a look next time you’re time-wasting and scrolling through red carpet coverage on the Mail online. This sandal also takes this polka dot dress from cute to chic. Add a biker jacket if you like or a tailored tux style. 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
