One of my favourite fashion games (one that I know Kate Middleton is quite fond of playing too) is mixing high with low. It’s so effective because the ‘high’ part of the outfit instantly lifts the rest of your look, and the ‘low’ part makes it less showy. A handbag is a fabulous investment item for dressing up any look and if you choose one like this Oroton bag, it will never, ever date (think of the cost per wear!) Meanwhile, this cute-as-pie Jeanswest dress is a perfect match for the bag, and a staple for your summer wardrobe.
I couldn’t resist upping the cute factor on the dress and layering it with a khaki shirt, denim vest and spring-appropriate accessories to create the ideal outfit for Sunday markets or picnic.
