DRESS IT DOWN

A smart shirt doesn’t have to pop out of a pen­cil skirt. Tuck it into high-waisted pants – the looser and less for­mal, the bet­ter we say. A bow gives your pants a softer fin­ish, too. Shirt, R899, 8 to 20, Pringle of Scot­land. Pants, R529, 32 to 52, H&M. Ear­rings, R335, Jangi. Rings, R399 each, both Ac­ces­sorize. Hand­bag, R799, Aldo. Heels, R1 990, Europa Art Shoes

TOP TO TOE

Choose one colour and wear it with confidence – dusty pink is easy to ac­ces­sorise. Go all out with glasses – the more glam, the big­ger the im­pact – and look for sky-high plat­forms to soup things up. Dress, R1 699, 30 to 36, Sit­ting Pretty. Sun­glasses, from R1 590, Guess at SDM Eyewear. Lay­ered neck­lace, R229; hand­bag, R499, both For­ever New. Ring, R495, Jangi. Heels, R949, Charles & Keith >>

NIPPED-IN LUXE

There’s noth­ing quite like a shirt dress to give you a feel-good fac­tor all day long. A knee-length ver­sion is per­fect for easy, chic style... mix lemon yel­low with baby blue for a more fresh look. Dress, R1 500, 8 to 20, Pringle of Scot­land. Ear­rings, R180; neck­lace, R795, both Re­nasi. Ring, R125, Jangi. Hand­bag, R450, Wool­worths. Heels, R929, Charles & Keith

CLEVER TAKE

Dun­ga­rees? Of course you can! Re­think this play­ful piece with a nod to a more modern look. Wear it over a ruf­fled blouse for a fem­i­nine touch and slip on chic pointed mules. It’s th­ese de­tails that cue your styling know-how. Dun­ga­rees, R1 199, 32 to 36, Sit­ting Pretty. Shirt, R119, XS to XXL, Mr Price. Ear­rings, R180, Re­nasi.

GET IN LINE

Stripes? If they’re fac­ing in the right di­rec­tion they can slim you down in sec­onds. Look for a flat­ter­ing A-line shape with fine ver­ti­cal stripes. If you’re wear­ing a dress that hits be­low the knee, put on your stilet­tos for ef­fort­less el­e­gance.

Dress, R2 900, 8 to 20, Pringle of Scot­land. Ear­rings, R195, Re­nasi. Sil­ver rings, R199 for set of nine; bag, R559, both Co­lette by Co­lette Hay­man. Heels, R599, Wool­worths

FRESH TWIST

The must-have knit this sea­son? Go off-the-shoul­der. Pair it with skinny jeans or leg­gings... ca­sual yet chic. Want more? Sling on a tex­tured hand­bag – vel­vet re­mains in the lime­light. Knit, R379, XS to XL, H&M. Jeans, R3 850, Re­play. Ear­rings, R199; hand­bag, R559, both Co­lette by Co­lette Hay­man. Bracelet, R499, Ac­ces­sorize. Ring, R750, Jangi >>

EASY DOES IT

No, a smart skirt doesn’t call for a prim-and-proper blouse. We say team it with a su­per­slouchy knit. Soft blue and grey go hand in hand. Just add a se­ri­ous pair of shoes you can re­ally show off.

TO THE MAX

The maxi-dress is spring’s dar­ling. Go for a shirt style in a sub­tle print – ging­ham is still on our radar! Dress it down with train­ers or make an en­trance in state­ment heels. Dress, R2 400, 8 to 20, Pringle of Scot­land. Ear­rings, R425; bracelet, R405, both Jangi. Rings, R199 for set of nine, Co­lette by Co­lette Hay­man. Heels, R3 490, Europa Art Shoes >>
