Q: I recently bought a grey suit for work. I would like to be able to wear it for casual occasions. Could you advice me? Regards, David.

A: From the office to a dinner out with friends, wear the suit with a a stronger patterned or darker colour shirt.

For an even more relaxed look loosen the tie and add a sweater in a darker or brighter colour under your jacket and team it a pair of casual shoes such as loafers. You could also team it with a polo-shirt and sneakers.

And don't forget to throw your overcoat over your suit and loosen up the look with a chunky knit scarf and complementary chunky hat.

Q: Is the little black number in for this Christmas?

A: Absolutly yes. The little black dress has made its comeback this season especially the structured cocktail dresses. Every woman should have a little black dress in her wardrobe. It never dates.

Be aware that black does not suit every complexion. For those with fair skin and light or red hair, when wearing black team it with a necklace, ear-ring or scarf in a brighter colour or choose a shiny fabric that will reflect the light on your face.
