What to wear to a black tie dinner or formal event

When you’re invited to a formal event, be it a black tie dinner or a corporate event, it’s easy to just wear a little black dress. But when the little black dress is this delicate, feminine and unique, that’s a guarantee you’ll make an impact and be memorable as the most elegant lady in the room. Paired with a stunning statement pendant and gold accessories, it’s a knockout outfit.

What to wear to work on a Monday

It can be really depressing when you have an office job and need to decide what to wear to work on a Monday, especially in a job that requires you to wear ‘formal’ clothes. That doesn’t mean you can’t be stylish, or that you must wear one of those (in my opinion) hideous ‘women’s suits’. Dress simply in a black dress, tights and oxfords. Add simple jewellery that doesn’t make too much of a statement. Add a great looking leather bag. The final touch for a bit of colour and classic style is a scarf that goes well with your bag, and well manicured nails. Dressing well is going to make you feel great about having to start the work week after a fabulous weekend.

Ladies Day at Ascot is a day for extravagant hats and formal dress. Taking inspiration from the blue skies we hope to be blessed with on the day, here’s an outfit idea for that most special of outings. This could also be worn to a wedding as a guest or even by the mother of the bride (or groom).

How to wear grey without being boring

Grey seems to be the colour of the season but this Stella McCartney ‘sweatshirt’ is anything but bland. Pair with sleek accessories and a pop of colour at the neck and on the hand to complete the subtle elegance of the look

T— is from India, and he’s a dapper gent. He’s sent me this photograph wearing the green scarf I made him, as a casual alternative to a tie. Paired with a classic corduroy shirt and tweed jacket, he’s definitely effortlessly stylish.


How to wear bold stripes with accessories

Wondering how to wear monochrome stripes with accessories? Styling a statement necklace in a bold colour can make your outfit pop. Just add black accessories with one accent colour theme running through the rest. Don’t amp up the makeup, just let the clothes speak.

What to wear for an art opening at a gallery or museum

Going to exhibitions and opening nights dressed to the nines is all very well, but have you ever thought that you can wear a piece of art just as easily as picking something to hang on a wall? A hand painted silk scarf is a painting, each scarf carefully designed and made as a one-of-a-kind piece impossible to duplicate. That one scarf can be worn in a myriad number of ways, making each outfit as unique as you are yourself.

How to wear pink without being too ‘girly’

Pink is so often given a bad rep, and it really doesn’t have to be ‘only for blondes’ or for ‘girly girls’. Wear it in your own way, and it can create a fashion statement without turning you into a cliche.

Wear pink with panache! Make it casual chic by wearing the Arati Devasher pink Birdies scarf with black… polkadot trousers, a tank top, and a chunky cuff, topped off with sleek patent Oxfords. The pink lip accents the colour and means you’re wearing it – it’s not wearing you.
