Think ladylike, polished, and elegant! Girl glamour was seen on the runway at Jonathan Saunders, Miu Miu and Nina Ricci, heralding the return of ladylike chic.
This chic easy to wear style can be weaved into your day to day wardrobe or work attire and has now fed to the high street where stores such as Next and M&S are already embracing the trend. This gorgeous silk shirt, £119 and high waisted trousers, £129 from Ted Baker, would look just as good after hours as in the office.
Focus on lady-like pencil skirts and cropped jackets teamed with blouses and a structured bag that are central to this look – but add the wow factor by incorporating different textures, colours and adding lust worthy accessories. Limited Collection coat £120 available from November, blouse £29.50, skirt £99 available in October and shoes £49, from Marks and Spencer.
