White T-shirts may be comfy and easy to wear but frankly, there’s nothing interesting about them. Joanne’s luxe style trick here is worth a try: A printed silk scarf, when tied around your neck, is a great way to juxtapose a plain top.

Jade Seah: Sparkly skirt

If slipping into a full-on sequin look makes you look a little too Christmassy, consider getting a sequin skirt as an alternative. We love how versatile it is; it’ll go well with T-shirts and tank tops as well as sneakers and stilettoes.

Pearls, just like Birkins, are a timeless and worthy investment, and will go a long way to making you look more expensive. But if you are worried it might age you, opt for a multi strand necklance with other gems added to the mix, like Constance.

It’s not just the brides who love long trains. Over the years, we’ve witnessed countless best-dressed stars hitting the red carpets in dresses that feature floor sweeping hemlines. Jesseca’s look here is one such example and we love it because it’s graceful, time-defying, and it promises to make a lasting impression on others.
