Junior Fashion Editor Alexandra Venison answers this week’s most pressing fashion questions from how to dress to impress while remaining modest, to updating your wardrobe without having to completely replace it…
Q. I want to invest in a piece I can wear to work and then head out straight afterwards to party with my friends. I need something that I can feel comfortable in, but also dress up. Any thoughts?
A. We love jumpsuits this season and luckily they’re all over the market. With the weather cooling they’re the perfect option for hopping about, whether you’re going to a restaurant, bar or club. Yes, you may be a little bit more covered up, but, as they say, there’s nothing more intriguing than a bit of mystery.
Q. My wardrobe is full of black pieces, which I love but I really want to stand out more from the crowd. How can I accessorise my look, so I don’t need to go out and buy a whole new wardrobe?
A. Look to quirky accessory designers Charlotte Olympia, Sophia Webster and Olympia Le-Tan for some embellishment inspiration. They create both shoes and handbags that will get people talking and you will fall head over heels in love with. Although they create quirky pieces, they are also classic enough that the piece will become an investment you will treasure for a lifetime!
