Christmas is over so please! no more glitter and sequins. Hint: When you go through the sales look for any fifties skirts, pencils skirts, flat shoes,( see item du jour), statement bags and grab any shrunken fitted jackets that will take you through from winter to next summer. Buy up big on white tanks and singlets, and remember Floral is good, stripe is better and simple is best. And yes, you can keep your jeans, you must have a trench but look out for baggy chinos, they are the new jean..
