We all want to get good cost per wear from the pieces in our wardrobe and if you have watched my online workshop you will know how much importance I place on a versatile wardrobe. For this post I am using an old shift dress from Eileen Fisher, I have in my wardrobe. But I have given alternative options including a navy dress if you don't like or want to wear black.
To be really versatile I would suggest a simple style with a short or 3/4 length sleeve that you can layer under and over. A mid weight fabric such as crepe or viscose will work day and night.
By using accessories cleverly no-one will think it is the same dress you are wearing again.
Outfit 1 is for the Office.
For an office look I have added an open front jacket, silk scarf and quilted handbag with heeled boots.
Watch the video - below are items from my wardrobe that are still available or similar where I could find.

My red Dress - also still available in deep green (came up a little small on the bust for me)
Velvet leggings (incredibly soft & don't slip down!)
Most of the outfits below I have created from items I already had in my wardrobe. By adding just a few new pieces and building up a collection of accessories it is easy to create some new festive outfits.

It’s been a hot one this week and I’m not a big fan of shorts. I prefer a loose dress or a pair of wide leg trousers, full length or cropped, in a lightweight floaty fabric like a soft cotton, viscose or Lyocell. But I have lots of readers asking how to wear wide leg trousers, especially crops because they can make you look square and boxy. There are some tricks that you can use though, to create shape and balance. Here are 5 styling tips for how to wear wide leg trousers and crops to flatter any shape.
1. Create long lines with a tunic style top and a long necklace to elongate the body.
2. Use statement accessories, or details to draw the eye where you want it to focus.
3. Add a chunky wedge sandal to create balance.
