Today I have gone for a silk ruffled shirt, slim cotton cropped trousers and patent high heels. Being natural fibres, silk and cotton work well when it is warmer. I have added the coral belt to break up the “black and greyness” of it all. A black blazer would be a nice addition to make the outfit smarter. Alternatively the trousers could be dressed down with ballet flats, a plain white shirt and a piece of knitwear.
If slim fitting trousers don’t suit your shape, you could swap them for a pair of wide black leg trousers – it’s probably best to avoid the classic court shoe with a wide trouser but rather go for a stacked heel or a wedge instead.
