Remember that gorgeous dress you only wore once? Ever thought about dressing it down with boots and a chunky knit in some form? It’s a whole different look. If you’ve got a loud print, then stick to complimentary knits in neutral palettes to make sure you’ve got only one stand out item. Flat ankle boots and a leather jacket give a hint of the fabulousness you’ve got on underneath but merge casual and glam perfectly.

Or for the cooler months you’re able layer with a jumper to give yourself a completely different style to make it seasonably appropriate.
