A blazer is a versatile item which can easily be dressed down with a pair of skinny jeans and heels.  A more formal look is easily achieved when worn over a dress and heels.This staple wardrobe piece comes in various forms, fabrics and styles but I would stick to a classic style which won’t date.

As is evident this piece is a firm favorite of the Duchess of Cambridge:

The latest in black pants…

Hello friends,

No good wardrobe would be complete without a pair of stunning black pants.  They can be worn casually with a pair of trainers, worn with flats for the school run and worn with a sexy pair of heels for the evening. Whether skinny, cropped or wide legged its all about finding the right pair for your body type.  Equally important is how you pair your pins.  My simple rule is:  If it’s tapered and skinny at the bottom then it can be loose and free form at the top and vice versa.  If you pair a wide leg trouser with a loose top it can look a tad bit unstylish in my opinion although there are exceptions to the rule such as with a large belt to break the silhouette.

Here are some of my favorite black pants:


To me these five silhouettes would work for me and I think on average most women.
