The ultimate utility item – a crisp white dress shirt is chic, professional and slimming under a blazer for work, and sexy when unbuttoned a bit lower and paired with a camisole, statement necklace and jeans for the weekend. Instead of the usual fabric belt that accompanies many garments, consider a wide elasticised belt to define your waist. This will draw the eye upwards, giving you an hourglass shape and balancing your proportions.
If you’re going for height, watch out for shoes with darkcoloured ankle straps, which can visually cut the length of the leg at the ankle, making legs appear shorter and undoing the benefit of wearing heels.
