The dinner party look | Nothing more satiating than a fun evening with family and friends, strike the perfect balance between casual and sleek by bringing out that super-comfortable statement-making dress like a lightweight chiffon dress and pair it with luxe but subtle accessories. To complete this uptown elegant look, pair it with suede sandals and an understated yet opulent trunk bag. When chiffon and diamonds are worn together, stunning-ness comes ablaze. Try it!

Going on a playdate | If you haven’t gone on playdates with your little ones then you have really missed out on some cherishable moments – plan it and keep it cool and classic with a buttoned-down oversized shirt and pair it with your best-fit mom jeans for that sense of ease. When Jessica Alba wears the look with such suave, so can you! If that’s a little basic for your liking, add a dash of colour to the look with a brightly hued bag. Feminine hoops coupled with strappy-block heels or even sneakers will give you the perfect relaxed yet chic look.

A night out with your lady troop | Show off how glamorous you are – it’s time to wear that show-stopping outfit – go all out with faux fur, velvet, and sequins. To have all eyes on you, we suggest taking a moment to mix and match your most glam pieces. Perfect complementing silver-tone pearl accessories and the vibrant silk-satin dress, along with embellished footwear make for a razzle-dazzle look. Complete your look with ruby red lips and a super sleek clutch.
