|Dress: £29.99, H&M (bought instore last week). Leather jacket: £295, Jigsaw. Espadrilles: Asos (sold out but buy similar from New Look here)|
Try with a leather jacket to toughen up the romantic quality…and if wearing it on its own, look for dresses with pockets and relaxed hems and wear with flats or trainers – a far more modern way to wear a lighter hue. Also make sure the item is well-lined, and not see through – the High Street is getting much better for this and it’s worth spending a bit more sometimes to get it right.
