It's Bank Holiday weekend (in Blighty). It's bound to rain. What outfit can possibly beat the elements and look perfectly polished, no matter what?
When in doubt, I always turn to a fail-safe classic combination. Some may say boring, but I say 'pah!' to that. Invest in classic pieces like these and nothing will work harder in your entire clothing collection. Inject a little personality with your own take on an otherwise traditional look: a sequin skirt; colour-popping tights or a huge bow a-top your head.
In my book, these pieces are The Holy Grail of outfit-building - not forgetting the all-important slash of pillar-box red lippy to sex it all up a bit:
Dita bag, £35 Oasis
Aviator Sunglasses, £12 ASOS.com
Breton stripe top, £45 Whistles
Quilted patent pumps, £88 French Sole
Linda Trench, £78 GAP
Ruby-Woo lipstick, £12.50 MAC
