The bodysuit is a base layer for every outfit, many of us remain reluctant to have this in our wardrobe as we don’t know how to wear it! However, you can essentially use a body suit as an alternative to a strappy top whilst showing off your amazing figure and highlighting your curves. This piece can be worn with jeans, skirts or trousers and as it is lightweight, it is easy to add layers, such as a jacket or an oversized jumper.

An Oversized Top

As the winter approaches, it is all about layering and the oversized top does just this whilst being exceptionally warm, cosy yet offering a chic look. Sometimes we are in those moods where comfort is masking style, hence our oversized tops can give you the best of both worlds. Depending on the colour and overall look you could even get away with some our Pleat Boutique’s oversized tops in the office, don’t be afraid to try it out as a more formal look.

A Midi Skirt

Midi skirts have made a come back in the past few years and are now an essential for your wardrobe, similar to the little black dress, they can be styled up or down for any occasion. The go to colour is black, however highlight your body confidence, be brave and try in a unique colour. Our midi skirts come in pink, green and many more colours so try a few on. If you are unsure on tops, try white or black for the comfort of a bold colour, you could even style as a co-ord with a matching top.

A Little Black Cami

The final essential to your wardrobe is the little black cami, a top which goes with every pair of jeans or trousers, like the body suit this is great for layering by adding a jumper, blazer or leather jacket. Also, black cami tops are a safe colour and are formal enough for office wear.
