Just watch out for spillages, that red wine is a nightmare to clean off…

& other stories

This oversized shirt is all about the details, with iridescent pearl buttons, painted collar and washed finish. Wear untucked with a pair of jeans – straight leg is bang on trend, if you can tear yourself away from your faithful skinnies.

Mint Velvet

Puff sleeves have been a favourite of fashion eds for a while now and are here to stay for spring. The trend can look a little ‘Tudor wench’ sometimes so we’re loving the subtlety of this Mint Velvet number.

£69

Zara always comes through with the goods at a fantastic price point and this semi-sheer shirt is a steal. Full marks for the Western-inspired pin-tuck detail. YeeHaw!
