Actress Aoibheann is giving exceptionally good monochrome with this ultra-classy look. What's making it work is that the palette and styling are so simple.

No accessories or patterns are clamouring for attention, each element flatters the figure and adds up to a restrained, but chic, vibe. The look is essentially three easy steps to looking your best. A crossover blouse is a soft, feminine take on a shirt, the pencil skirt accentuates the hourglass silhouette, while the pointed courts elongate the leg.

One word: bravo.


Dear Stylemma,

I had a baby five months ago and I am still getting back to my normal figure. I am sick of wearing my maternity jeans, but I haven't been able to find any jeans on the high street that work as if they fit on my waist. They tend to be too big on my legs and bum, but if I buy them smaller, they squeeze my middle. Any suggestions please?

A very stylish mama recently gave us a brilliant tip on this exact conundrum. Two words: Spanx jeans. Yep, they exist! Spanx jeans are really flattering and give the 'new mum wobbliness' just the support you need without being uncomfortably tight. They work for anyone looking for a smooth silhouette and comfortable jeans. You can't tell that they have hidden slimming properties. The Spanx jeans are a tiny bit more expensive than the high street (€99, available from Brown Thomas lingerie department) but we reckon you can't put a price on looking and feeling good postpartum.
