“We have a smart casual range. The mix of clothes can take you from the office to going out, depending on how you put them together. And that is what we love doing here, wardrobing. You can take a basic white shirt and turn it into a ‘wow’ shirt by the accessories you add.
“So many women don’t know how to mix and match. That’s where you can take a capsule of clothes and turn it into a month’s worth of outfits.
“It is a very colourful winter. Red is featured strongly and it goes together with neutrals and blue. You can then add a colourful scarf. The draped knit cardigan is great… wear it loose, belt it or attach on your shoulder with a brooch.”
