Sunday Independent (Ireland) - Life - - STYLE NOTEBOOK -

Dear Stylemma, I badly need to get a new black blazer. I want some­thing that I can wear over a dress or with jeans on a night out, but also in work. One but­ton only, please, and noth­ing too shiny. And I would rather not spend more than €100.

€25, Dorothy Perkins €37, Oa­sis She’s a reg­u­lar cham­pion of Ir­ish de­sign­ers, so it wasn’t a great sur­prise to see Amy Hu­ber­man take to the green car­pet for hus­band Brian’s re­cent tes­ti­mo­nial evening in a dress by Len­non Court­ney. It was a pleas­ant sur­prise to see her es­chew the full-length op­tion, and go for the far more mod­ern just-be­low-the-knee look. We’re also fans of the lack of heavy fake tan, and of the in­di­vid­ual ac­ces­soris­ing — lots of lit­tle quirky bits, and not a state­ment neck­lace (surely the most overused term cur­rently about) in sight. A good blue­print for all Christ­mas rev­ellers to work from.

Col­lar, Len­non Court­ney, €40, Arnotts. Also avail­able in red
