You can’t go wrong with an LBD. Little black dresses – with their clean cuts and elegant simplicity – are the ideal basic for any woman’s wardrobe. It’s how you dress it up that makes all the difference.

 

At the office

Office appropriate doesn’t have to mean boring. If your dress code requires you are demure, look to the details to keep your style flag flying high. It’s your bag’s time to shine, so pick one you love, along with a snazzy watch and flashy nail colour to add a little pep. The key to rocking the office look is a single statement piece – whether it’s around your neck, wrist or dangling from your ears!

 

After-work drinks

Trade in your work bag for a sweet little clutch, chuck the courts and step into the stilettos. Now all you need is a splash of lip gloss and spritz of scent, and you’re styled to the nines to sip at martinis and flirt with the cute bartender.

 

A hot date

Use simple details to take his breath away. Sweep your hair up into a trendy top-knot or classic chignon – you can add a little barrette or head band if you’re feeling funky. Tempt him with a naked neck – but add dangly earrings for a fun, feminine touch.

 

Dinner with the in-laws

Nothing says classy more than pearls. Even if they’re not the real deal, get a string of quality knock-offs to wear around your neck, with matching studs to boot. If you want to avoid showing too much skin, pick a pair of patterned stockings to cover your legs, and round out the look with a sweet pair of ballet pumps.

 

Tea with gran

Remind gogo that you’re her sweet little girl underneath, even if you do look all grown up! Go for a fun flower in your hair, or on a colder day, a pretty hat, and if you’re going somewhere fancy you could even wear gloves. Don’t forget that final touch – the necklace with your initials she gave you for your 12th birthday!

 

Brunch with the girls

It’s time to let loose and have a laugh. Tie your hair back with a cheeky little hair bow, and toss your favourite scarf around your shoulders. Boots or sneakers will give your look a more casual edge – and don’t leave the house without a classic set of sunnies!
