Here, actress Leigh Arnold works a nice unfussy look, which is chic and flattering without being a slave to any current fads.

The combo of blazer, mini skirt and boots is the perfect transitional sartorial workhorse. This is a look that will take you from season to season, and will work for all but the most formal of occasions. The dark palette and statement neckpiece dress things up nicely, while the rolled-up sleeves and pared-back hair and make-up ensure that the overall effect is polished but not try-hard.


Dear Stylemma,

I need a basics overhaul. I usually like to invest in good-quality T-shirts and tops, but I am having trouble finding anything suitable at reasonable prices. I like T-shirts that are dressy enough to wear to work with a blazer, or out for dinner. Any suggestions?

A basics reboot is an essential wardrobe cleanse one must do at least twice a year. Depending on whether you veer towards high street or high-end, here are a few suggestions. For seriously cheap, try H&M. They do a broad mix of colours, necklines and materials, from €6.99. For seriously chic, we recommend Acne, which is available from Brown Thomas, tops from €100. For a half-way point, head to Whistles, for tops around €45.
