Creating the look at home is quite simple: get a boxy square shirt in a graphic black and white stripe print, available in Zara stores.

Tummy Tuck Alert 

In early and mid 90s showing off the midriffs were high on fashion alerts. This season again sees a come back of cropped tops teamed with chiffon or cotton or linen trench coats.

Girl on fire

Red is a colour of all the season. Bold, fiery, romantic the winter doesn’t let it go. Piping hot red pants from Pepe has made a huge impact along with red bold frilled skirts. For the less courageous, go for either a tailored pair of red pants, or invest in a bright burning clutch or cap.
