Six wardrobe staples – from the parka to the polo tee – have been given serious style upgrades.

1.The two-tone slip dress
Set against black, white or nude, contrast lace trims give the sexy innerwear-as-outerwear staple a graphic spin.

2. The white shirt
Here’s how the humble button-down’s been given a lift: it’s oﬀ the shoulder, or comes with puﬀy shoulders and even extra sleeves (yes!).
3. The bedazzled cardigan
Preppy and glam – what an irresistible combination!
4. The fashion parka
No utilitarian olive green one for us – the new versions are embellished all over, boldly striped or feature pretty pleated hems.
5. The leather sling bag
You heard it here: The half- moon shape has replaced the bucket as the style to own now.
6. The polo tee with a twist
Sporty and smart, these ’50s-inspired tops come extra long or feature a wrap front that resembles a qipao.
