Little April showers.
Buy now, love forever. (above, Burberry from £1,495)
The last two are from the trench coat heroes Mackintosh.
I know that girlie sweet pastels are everywhere as are florals and scarf prints this season, but there is something so cool and chic about a trouser suit for evening wear.
Angelina Jolie was attending the Women in the World Summit on International Womens day yesterday. She looks amazing in this suit. It shows off her feminine figure fabulously and looks effortlessly stylish.
The great thing about this simple look is the way Kate has added the eye-catching yellow clutch.
Very cool suit here on Natalia Vodianova during Paris fashion week.
Ok, so these ladies have amazing bodies and lots of cash to spend on high-end outfits. Here are some ideas for us mere mortals. I picked Day Birger et Mikkelsen for a mid-price suit.
So these may look tricky for all but the skinniest girls, but that’s just not true. Apple shapes would wear the jacket open with a loose silk box shaped blouse. Pear shapes would wear the Jacket done up showing off a slim waist with an eye-catching big necklace to attract attention up, coloured shoes to even out leg proportions.
If you are a larger pear shape, team the trousers with this jacket,
If the skinnies are still freaking you out, try some loose fitting trousers.
Those lovely O’keefe ladies let me play dress up with one of their mannequins. I bet these sale picks won’t be around for long, so if you live anywhere near Surrey, get yourself down to Esher.
I layered a black slip dress under a taupe slip dress which added interest around the lace edging and teamed with a So Marilyn chunky knit grey jumper sale price £85. You have to love the gold Cambridge Satchel £125 new in this season.
This is a truly amazing bargain, originally £179. I would wear it with black shorts, black tights and brogues. But here I teamed it with a Farhi jumper-dress.
