Q"I'm 27 and this time last year I had my daughter. It's changed my life. I now juggle working part-time with motherhood and don't have a lot of money to spend on clothes.

"Nights out are rare but when they happen I can't justify spending money on a dress I'll only wear once.

"I'm looking for hard-working, versatile pieces that can be worn for any occasion. I'm petite 5ft 2in and a size 10."

A Choose mix and match monochrome separates. Cheaper clothes look more expensive in black, plus black can look day-appropriate or night time glam depending on your accessories. I'm loving Vero Moda's party wear range which is inspired and modelled by Alexa Chung.

It is packed with demure Peter-pan collar blouses that are work appropriate but can be dressed up with a black skirt for after-hours. Try this jacquard skirt from Dunnes, €35.

Worn with black opaques and a knitted black cardi and patent heels, this skirt translates for work.

Buy a day-to-night peter pan-collared dress -- glam it up in an instant with Oasis's sheer black spotted tights.
