Micro Jackets


One of the easiest ways to breathe new life into a fatigued wardrobe is to play with proportions. Where convention dictates going large, why not look the other way? Reaching for an itsy-bitsy cropped jacket will effectively set one apart in a sea of oversized blazers and gigantic coats.

Sheer layering 


See-through clothes may seem a bit naughty, but when layered atop one another and paired with soft tailoring and a gentle colour palette, the trend relays more of a sophisticated wink than Vegas at dawn. Appropriate for work and play, simply dial back the layers as the weather (hopefully!) heats up.

Men’s Shirting


We all know that spring weather can lean towards the unpredictable, but that’s no reason to retire your party dresses altogether. Keep them working hard through spring by layering over a man’s shirt (boyfriend’s, dad’s and brother’s wardrobes are all fair game for SS23). Pair with chunky boots.

Low-Rise Trousers


Waistbands have been up and down with such frequency over the past few years, they must be feeling nauseous. It’s time to dip it low once again, but don’t fret if you don’t want to bare your stomach, long tops and bodysuits are all part of the look now.

Clip Art


A lazy girl’s favourite styling trick, this tip works far better on a dirtier head of hair, so eschew your early morning hair wash and put that grease to good use. Simply stack back-to-school clips around your hairline. Functional, yet fancy, proving hairpins don’t have to be decadent to have a great effect. Plus, if you have a good root around the sofa, chances are you’ll find a clip or two you can put to work. 

Tulle Touches 


Bring whimsy into the new year by letting tulle stay up past midnight NYE. For those with craft skills, let loose in the haberdashers and stitch the trim of your choice onto any item of clothing you feel is in need of a movie makeover. Or simply, make a bow and affix to your look with plenty of safety pins.

Giant Corsages


Corsages are back, and they’re blooming massive (literally). Over the years SATC’s Carrie Bradshaw, Gwyneth Paltrow and Victoria Beckham have sported botanic brooches, so it’s never worth retiring them completely. Their gargantuan size effectively counters their cutesy sweetness.
