An incredibly chic and simple way to incorporate the undying gingham trend into your daily life. Made with 60% wool to justify its slightly higher price point, it also has pockets which is a must for me to slip my phone into when on the go. You can manipulate this coat to suit your fashion mood. For those extra days, wear with clashing check trousers, or for the understated, a simple black jean or wide legged trouser keeps the look sophisticated.

This gorgeous printed jacket from Zara has so much potential for versatility. It comes with matching wide leg trousers, but can easily be worn with black trousers if you aren't as daring (like me!) or style them with denim. An easy alternative is a pair of distressed jeans showing off your ankle matched with a pair of simple strappy heels. Or wear the jacket with a cami or on its own as a blouse.

I'm getting some serious Gucci vibes from this Zara dress. It has a wrap crossover silhouette with an elasticated waist for comfort and a slightly more flexible fit for curvier ladies. A deep V neckline is always flattering for bustier gals, and the elasticated waist will draw attention to your smallest part.

Zara are the trophy jacket kings of the high street and have done it again with the silver number. It's an update of their sell out gold version in stores at Christmas. Perfect for any fancy event/wedding to wear with your LBD, to kick your look up a notch. Or, wear with a simple tee and jeans for a laid back cool look. Swap with a cami for going "out out".

This Topshop check jacket nods to 3 trends this season. With the ever popular check print, athletic racing stripe down the sleeves and of course the wardrobe staple blazer. The slightly cropped shape allows you to play with proportions and, when worn with a pair of high waist jeans, it can really elongate your legs. A good option if you are on the petite side as well. Also comes with a matching jumpsuit if you are feeling a bit extra!

These Topshop Nadia woven mules are a great update to your summer shoe collection. Monochrome is a colour match that is consistently on trend and matches almost every colour. Wear with cropped wide leg jeans, a cropped straight leg, or even a shirt dress when the sun is out.

Zara has me drooling over these embroidered high heeled court shoes. At 3.9 inches, its probably not going to be the most comfortable, but there is no doubt others will get shoe envy. If you are wearing a suit in a block colour, these will lift your look and inject just enough detail to set you apart. However, these beauties can be worn with anything, not to mention anywhere you want to feel like a hero.
