I wore this outfit to the Paul Costelloe S/S24 show and loved it! This Dhruv Kapoor shirt adds drama to any outfit with its enormous sleeves, while the Mulberry skirt really grounds it.
To accessorise, I wore my most comfortable Jimmy Choos with Glassworks socks underneath, and added an orange Ganni bag that reminds me of a strawberry - for summer!
Adding socks to strappy heels is a very easy way to make an outfit look more ‘fashion’. Experiment with different colours and patterns. For a slightly more casual look, try unbuttoning the shirt at the top - it’s small things that have the biggest impact’
I simply can’t get enough of green! This vibrant shade really stands out, and, paired with the orange, is bang on trend. While the outfit incorporates two bright colours, it’s a pretty simple look overall.
Don’t shy away from colour - just opt for simple shapes and basics.
I usually go for a higher heel with a wide leg trouser, just to elongate the leg and get the most from the trouser shape!
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: leopard is a neutral. Whether or not you agree, this outfit keeps it simple with the addition of white jeans and taupe sandals - keeping within the tones of the top.
For a pop of colour, I’ve added an orange bag.
Switch out the Birkenstocks for some strappy heels if you’re heading out in the evening. This is the perfect versatile day to night look.
I love this look! Jorts - jean shorts - are a huge 2023 trend, but are typically styled very casually - so pairing them with a blazer smartens them up enough for the office, or an evening out. Keeping the rest of the outfit black really allows the jorts to do the talking.
As these jorts are a longer style that aren’t so tight on the leg, I’ve paired them with a slightly oversized blazer to balance out the proportions. If you go for a tighter pair, try a more fitted blazer to avoid looking top heavy.
I’ve never had more compliments on a night out than when I wore this outfit. In person, the light really catches the gems on this amazing Free People top, and makes it really stand out.
As it’s such an eye-catching number I paired it with a nude leotard underneath, so as not to detract attention, as well as white jeans and beige cowboy boots that are similar to the colour of the leotard.
With such an eye-catching top, you don’t have to work hard on the rest of the outfit - keep it simple and let the standout piece do the talking. Try switching the boots for white converse if you’re planning a night of dancing.
This pared-back look screams minimalist with a twist. If you’re top-heavy like me, pairing wide-leg trousers with a tight vest give you a flattering silhouette.
For added interest, the gold chain brings out the metal in the matching belt and buckles on the shoes, to really tie everything together. Simple and easy!
While I’m convinced leopard print is a neutral, it can be considered a statement print. To keep it neutral, pick out colours you find in the print, such as this taupe/beige, to complete the outfit in true minimalist style.
Shirts are a big deal in 2023. They’re the perfect item for all occasions, and are super wearable for all body shapes.
Wearing one over a vest is super versatile - have it slung over your shoulders for some protection from the sun, wear it unbuttoned for a slightly more modest look, then button it up as it gets colder in the evenings.
Try to pair a couple of pieces that have a similar colour or tone, like the vest and shoes, for a pulled-together look. Go wild with the shirt!
This Commes Des Garçons tee is a staple in my wardrobe, as it goes with nearly everything. Black and white are true neutrals, but combined together in one item, they create a bit more interest. Paired with blue jeans, this is a fail-safe outfit.
Add a pair of over-the-ankle white socks for cooler days, and switch in some heels for a more rock and roll evening look.
Perfect for when you’re unsure about how warm it’s going to be, this combo clashes prints in a fail-safe way. I’d wear this to wander round a market.
Try experimenting with different prints on your bottom layer, as they add intrigue when poking out beneath plainer items.
This casual yet smart look keeps it simple with neutral tones, and benefits from a splash of colour in the jumper and different textures. It’s perfect for a relaxed occasion where you want to look put together.
Tying a jumper around your shoulders is an easy way to add that ‘je ne sais quoi’ and elevate a look - especially over a light jacket. To balance out the proportions from the extra fabric up top, make sure to wear wide-leg jeans.
Make like royalty in a sheep jumper - just like Princess Diana’s iconic black sheep one. By tucking the jumper in, you create more of a silhouette, making this the perfect casual look.
If you’re keeping it simple on your bottom half, you can go wild up top. If the jumper is too thick to tuck in all the way round, try a French tuck - just tuck in the front portion and leave the back and sides out for a chic ‘i just threw this together’ vibe.
Want to look smart but feel comfy? Adding a slogan tee and trainers makes this smart outfit a bit more fun - perfect for a trip into the office, depending on the slogan!
A blazer makes anything look chic. Experiment with the t-shirt to change the silhouette - tucked, untucked and half tucked all look very different.
This is such a fun outfit that’s perfect for an evening out at a bar or arty restaurant.
Different textures add an extra layer of interest - grained leather in the jacket, smooth leather in the boots, ribbed cotton in the top, and metallic shine in the trousers.
The silver trousers are undoubtedly the showpiece, but make sure to find an element of that lighter tone in the jacket or boots. Here, the jacket’s stripes help pull the outfit together.
