Penny Dreadful actress Amy De Bhrun's teaming of a striped top and leather trousers to wear on the red carpet is perfect proof that, when you're wearing classics, they will take you anywhere.

This look would work equally well for a day-time event as it does on a night out. Keeping the shoes to an almost exact match of the trousers was a good stroke - anything scruffy would have looked awful, and heels could have been a shade tacky-glam. Nicely played.

Stylemma

I am attending a good friend's wedding next month. As if deciding what to wear to a wedding isn't hard enough, they have instigated a Mad Men theme for the dress code. I have no idea what to wear, apart from wishing to avoid buying something I will never wear again.  My style tends towards the conservative.

Fancy dress for a wedding shouldn't be allowed. However, as themes go, this could be a lot worse. Mad Men is open to huge interpretation - you can be Betty, in a classic, full-skirted, Fifties style; Joan, in a fitted, pencil-skirt silhouette; or Megan, in a short Sixties shift. All of which are covered by Coast. Carousel, ilovecarousel.com, is great for Betty's style. Also worth a look is Goat in Arnotts, if you're a Megan. And for Joan, Hobbs currently has a number of primary-coloured dresses, with bracelet-length sleeves, in her simple shift style.
