Steer clear of white (too predictable) and instead opt for a cool pewter grey (satin is a great fabric choice for neutral hues) and add personality through accessory choices – single statement earrings were one of the biggest trends?of?AW16 and would look great here. See Mugler, Anthony Vaccarello and Philosophy di Lorenzo Serafini for inspiration.?Luma dress, €251 at Reformation

I love the boyish charm of this oversized suit – it’s both fresh and modern with a?loose fit and high waistband accentuating the?waist. Although a little daring, the beautifully feminine lace-trimmed bra compliments the masculine tailoring perfectly.?Houghton?Fall17Twiggy mini dress, Isa Arfen, €876 at Moda Operandi
