  • Carefully select all the items in your handbag
  • Choose an outfit that is classic, but with some individual statement.
  • Choose something that is comfortable but well fitted

Tips and Tricks

There is one particular outfit that always looks chic and allows for you to show of your own individual style too: this is the dress, jacket, boots combo.

Just make sure to update it for each season, whilst remaining true to your own personal style. Pop on some low heeled boots, or flats on a pair of tights or leggings (whichever is more weather appropriate).

Leather jackets are always fashionable as long as they fit and flatter your shape, and come in either black, tan or brown. Another fail-safe wardrobe essential.
