1. Little Black Dress
“This timeless wardrobe staple is a must-have. Black is figure-flattering and has a way of disguising any lumps or bumps. Simply classic for daywear, you can glam up a LBD for evening with jewellery and heels and wear over and over again as it never goes out of style. Here are some of my current favourites.”

2. Skinny Jeans
“You can dress skinny jeans up or down to suit the day or date. Great fitting skinnies can really lengthen the legs, especially black skinny jeans. Go for a stretchy pair for extra flattering fit and comfort.”
If you can afford to splash out go for these high-end ‘instasculpt’ skinny jeans.
