I love the idea of taking a plain tee to the next level by layering a bunch of necklaces, but whenever I try adding a bold statement necklace, it just looks contrived, if you will. I think an easier way to incorporate jewels into a slightly more laidback look is to find one gorgeous piece that anchors your look and gives it a purpose. I like a big cluster of stones worn low on the breastbone rather than high on the neck. Not sure what to pick out among the multitude of necklaces on display? Stay classic with metallics – max out the tanning effect with gold, or if you’re cool-toned like me, silver will complement you perfectly. Try looking in your closet for recurring colours and prints – a foolproof way to appear put together is by accessorising with the same colour family.

The neo-kimono is not an item to be paraded around in at your Japanese boss’ Christmas lunch spectacular. It is something to be worn on a day-to-day basis to give any plain outfit a little extra oomph. To be honest, it’s such a versatile piece, so go out (i.e. surf the web), buy one and you won’t regret it! (This one is from Topshop)
A white or ecru shirt in a silk/viscose or polyester composition is one staple piece for spring so I should get my hands on one when time allows! The obvious thing to do is to pair it with denim cut offs as an alternative to the humble t-shirt, but tucking it into a vibrant, high-waisted number is equal parts modern and classic.

I’m all about quirky prints and bright colours this spring, and the Nasty Gal shorts I came across were too perfect for words. Statement shorts are easy to wear with so many tops and shoes; they’re the perfect thing to pull on in a rush – who says no to being effortless and getting compliments all day long?
When days are too damn hot and clothing is a must, a girl needs her barely there dress. One such dress is from the Reformation and I can imagine how nice it would be to wear something so breezy after a day by the sea. In case you need more covering up, a little white dress with a twist is a must-have this season. I’m loving the spot revival and have already added a top with this whimsical print into my wardrobe!
