Sometimes I am required to go to formal dinners or lunches and am expected to wear a dress. I tend to opt for something conservative with a long sleeve (although more to do with my dislike of my upper arms) like this Stella McCartney number. It’s perfect because it’s demure but has some personality with the gorgeous bird embroidery.
THE CROPPED TROUSER
Play with the dimensions of classic tailoring like black trousers. I love this high waisted, wide legged cropped pair from Proenza Schouler, they still fall into the parameters of conservative but allow you to flash a little sexy heel, like this killer pair from Tabitha Simmons.
