Why are British Women so scruffy when it’s hot?

August 10, 2016


We know the look, strappy tops that don’t flatter, strapless maxi dresses that slide down and have to be yanked up all the time, flip flops every day, ladies, it’s really not good enough!


How do those Parisians do it – they look serene and smart all the time, and to add insult to injury, it looks effortless.

So what can we do to improve the image of the British working women? We suggest a capsule wardrobe built around some basics that work together filled in with less expensive tops and accessories.

So much is said about the capsule wardrobe – what should it contain? A couple of shift dresses with short sleeves if your arms aren’t 21 anymore, a couple of classic jackets that work with the dresses, a skirt or two and trousers – all in lightweight fabric. This will allow you to mix and match with shoes, bags and jewelry to ring the changes; plus, some colourful tops to tone with the skirt and trousers and you have most occasions under control!

Enjoy the summer!
