Everyday clothes and accessories have to be endlessly versatile – after all, they’re the ones you rely on when putting your look together every morning. Pulling an outfit out of my wardrobe while simultaneously wrestling my child out of bed and trying to make a 9:15 appointment can be a daunting, if not impossible, task. But having a few staples that work for a myriad of occasions helps take the stress out of dressing, leaving me with a little more time to savour my morning coffee.
Choose a wrap dress like this Max Mara number and you’ll be ready for a meeting in a flash. Not only is it simple and elegant, it can also be paired back with simple ballet flats for the weekend or with leggings or skinny jeans come cooler weather. (Swarovski drop earrings, ring and wrap around bracelet, Celine bag, Christian Louboutin pumps.)
Mixing work with pleasure or day with night shouldn’t call for a complete transformation or a trip home to change. This season’s push towards nude tones compliments the perennial favourite – a crisp white shirt.

Add a pair of simple stud earrings to add some sparkle to a plush sweater for a date night look that is touchable and elegant. (Earrings by Swarovski, sweater by Lover)
