Use tip from Judith Anderson’ character from a classic noir movie Laura (1944) and decorate it with not 1 but 3 brooches.

By the way, you can find a lot of beautiful vintage pieces on Susan Caplan website.

I think 2 silver plated 1960s Vintage Trifari Brushed Leaf Brooches, gold plated 1960s Vintage Monet Swirl Brooch and Mango‘s Belt Cotton Dress will look very stylish together.

Posh extras

Paule Ka’s Skirt In Tailored Cotton and Satin-Baked Crepe Top are perfect choice for a classic office outfit but you can easily turn them into a stylish cocktail outfit, just decorate them with Rene Coavilla‘s chic Satin and Leather Court Shoes and Theo Fennell‘s extremely cute Crowned Kingfisher Brooch.

Super feminine in pants

It might sound a bit strange but wearing pants and jacket you can highlight your femine side at most.

Zimmermann’s black Bowerbird Blazer + Cushnie et Ochs‘s very sexy Gloss Jersey Twisted Bodysuit and black  High-Wasted Pants (there is a white option too) + John Fluevog’s pumps Andromeda + Valextra‘s blue Twist Pochette + Ricardo Basta‘s Dragon Brooch = posh and at the same time elegant outfit special occasions.

Yumi Ueno’s cute Energy necklaces and earrings will look perfectly stylish with simple but feminine clothes like Kate Spade’s Flutter Sleeve Top and Trashy Diva‘s Pocket Skirt.
