autumn style: 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

summer style: 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.

summer style: navy blue for ladies day at ascot races

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).

summer style: wear boho denim to glastonbury music festival

Glastonbury, the ever popular five-day festival of contemporary performing arts that takes place near Pilton, Somerset, has been an annual pilgrimage for music-lovers since its inception in the 1970s. These days it’s the millennials who are attending, but style is always at the forefront. Here’s an outfit that hopes for sun, but prepares for rain, and celebrates the bohemian roots of the famous festival with denim and folk embroidery.

spring style: camel coat for a casual look

A camel coat seems to be the item that everyone wants this season, and styling them with casual jeans and a pristine white shirt can be both classic and boring. Amp up the style with a colourful statement necklace and pair with camel bag and shoes to keep the casual vibe going.

summer style: wear red with a statement necklace

Wear a statement necklace with red clothes, and it can be off-putting – you could end up looking like a pillar box with baubles on, after all… when chosen carefully, a red outfit can make a real style statement, and when its fire-engine shade is accentuated with pale shades and vibrant accessories, that bright red doesn’t seem so daunting after all. Caution: this style may invite fulsome compliments.
