Bring to the four: One versatile dress styled four ways

Take one dress – Wolford's super versatile 'Fatale' number – then accessorise it four different ways. We asked a coterie of fashion experts to unleash their imaginations.

Primary Colours

I chose these accessories because I love the visual impact when you mix up primary colours and layer. The accessories have such an impact when worn with the simplest of dresses.

Architecture Meets Fashion

Ciana March, blogger, one half of Concrete Collar, theconcrete collar.blogspot.ie

Our interest in the parallels between architecture and fashion led us to approach this styling project with clean lines and simplicity in mind. I hoped to find accessories in white leather and silver and Parfois did not disappoint. I'm currently loving the minimal 90s trend, which has flooded fashion week catwalks these past few seasons (think chokers, sleek hair and flatforms) so was keen to incorporate this into the mix.

Festival Chic

I'm currently obsessed with the 1970s Bohemia trend, so my look was majorly inspired by that era. Sarah has amazing red hair so the burnt orange colours in the kimono and scarf worked so well with her colouring. I decided to clash the warm tones up with silver chunky jewellery and sunglasses, to modernise it all.

Pastel Pink

The look I chose for this shoot was 60s-chic inspired. As pastel shades make their way back into our wardrobes each spring, I wanted to use pink tones to create a girly, feminine but also classic look. I introduced the pink, pastel tones through the amazing pink tote bag (a must-buy) and through a whimsical summer scarf.
