I am Busy sweatshirt €79, sequin midi skirt €149, Circle and bar stud earring €35 and Allie silver contrast detail trainer €119 from Mint Velvet

What if you are going out and you have to dress up but you don’t feel like dressing “up” up? The best option? Dressing down.

Yes, dressing down! You can mix skirts, sequins, denim, eclectic jewellery, sporty backpacks in luxe finishes, pearls, blazers and t-shirts in combinations that keep dressing up just that bit more comfortable but leave no doubt you are dressed to impress.

For Spring/Summer 18, Mint Velvet have given a soft, elegant approach of dressing down with a motif sweatshirt in a soft grey and blush pink sequined skirt matched with simple white trainers.

For a more structured look, River Island has combined a striped blazer, t-shirt and a ripped denim shirt embellished with pearl beading. Topping off the look are killer statement shoes.

So, when you are going out and want the best of both worlds, just experiment with dressing down.
