I am all about amping up the versatility factor of pieces in my wardrobe, in particular those 
that would otherwise be reserved for evenings and similarly elegant affairs. 

As far as I am concerned anything can be dialled down to everyday-appropriate with the 
right accessories - case in point, this Georgia Alice dress in all its pleated, metallic glory. 
No doubt a front-runner for any black-tie-or-equivalent event (I have personally worn it out 
and about with an edgy ankle boot and YSL clutch), for everyday off-duty purposes a little 
measured, minimalist thinking in the accessory department is all that is needed.

My picks? A sleek and practical tote, statement sunglasses and a simple white sneaker with 
slicked back hair and minimal jewellery. 

Dial down complete.

All black is never boring with the new updates on old classics we've seen in recent seasons. 
The key game-changers?  Mixing fabrics like silk and velvet with textured leathers and subtle 
punches of hardware to create dynamic yet wholly classic all black looks that will never go out 
of style. Simultaneously relaxed and refined, you won't regret investing in these pieces for a 
new take on those familiar basics we all love.

A tailored blazer, slicked-back hair and sneakers, plus a little playful flare to lighten the mood. 
Because we can't get too serious with our workwear too early in the new year, can we?
